Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear

Frasier

"Hey, y'know what money can buy? A solid gold gun. That shoots diamond bullets. I call it The Compensator. Whatta ya think?"

The tower stood on the exact center of the grounds. It was the tallest structure in Tsukito, and even the next highest palace spire was several levels shorter. Whenever mentioned in official literature or communications from the throne, the tower was always called the “pinnacle of Tsukito engineering” and “combining the best designs of physical construction and magical support,” making it a symbol of “Tsukito’s enlightened balance between the material and the mystical.”

"The engineers thought that a silver-stoned phallic symbol was their best accomplishment. Nothing better than having an enormous member wagging at the world. Boys will be boys"
Eirin Yagokoro, Touhou

Vala Mal Doran: ...only an idiot would assume that this backwater of a planet was safe because you have a few ships with decent shield technology. You don't look like an idiot to me. So, I have to assume that the reason why you would want to build more ships is, like other men, you like big machines with big engines that fire big missiles because you have a deep-seated need to overcompensate for your own shortcomings.
Chairman of the Appropriations Commission: Excuse me?
(aide barely manages to not giggle)
Vala: See, she knows what I mean.

Sten:This sword is off-balance to the point of uselessness. It may as well be scrap metal on a stick. Can I assume you wield it with the intent that it compensate for your inadequate genitals?

The ultimate compensator.
Massacre flavor text, Iji

Ten millimeter. That's a gun for people who have either got a small penis or no faith in their ability to hit the center of a target.
Thomas Lang, The Gun Seller

"Do you think maybe he's compensating for something?"
