"Some may never live, but the crazy never die."
Jack prepares to launch himself off a ship via cannon
Lord Cutler Beckett: You're mad!
Captain Jack Sparrow: Thank goodness for that, because if I wasn't, this would probably never work!
"Don't say another Goddamn word. Up until now, I've been polite. If you say anything else - word one - I will kill myself. And when my tainted spirit finds its destination, I will topple the Master of that dark place. From my black throne, I will lash together a machine of bone and blood, and fuelled by my hatred for you this fear engine will bore a hole between this world and that one. When it begins, you will hear the sound of children screaming - as though from a great distance. A smoking orb of nothing will grow above your bed, and from it will emerge a thousand starving crows. As I slip through the widening maw in my new form, you will only catch a glimpse of my radiance before you are incinerated. Then, as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouths, and I will sing the song that ends the Earth."
—Tycho, Penny Arcade
"There's this guy we know got himself some power by doing something crazy - we're just waiting to see what he does next."
—Dayakka, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, on Kamina
"I've codified the five different types of pillow fights:
Man vs Woman: Fun
Woman vs Woman: Awesome
Man vs Man: Gay
Man vs pillow: Crazy
and Pillow vs Pillow: Crazy Awesome"
"Pillow versus pillow equals crazy awesome — that's a real pillow fight right there. You see two pillows fighting, you know something's going down. They're designed for relaxation. If they're fighting, what hope do we have?"
—Demetri Martin on Pillow Fights
Jondar: "Is he sane, this 'Doctor'?"
"There's something you better understand about me because it's important, and one day your life may depend on it. I am definitely a madman with a box!"
—The Doctor, Doctor Who
"I just materialised out of thin air in one of your cafes as a result of an argument with a ghost of my great-grandfather. No sooner had I got there than my former self, the one that operated on my brain, popped into my head and said go see Zarniwoop. I have never heard of the cat. That is all I know.”
“Mr. Beeblebrox sir,” said the receptionist in awed wonder, “you're so weird you should be in movies.”
“Yeah. And you, baby, should be in real life.”
—Zaphod Beeblebrox, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
"Ninjas can't catch you if you're on fire."'
Dan McNinja, The Adventures of Dr. McNinja
Abner: Are you seriously thinking we should go back — into a hostile town full of armed soldiers — to rescue a girl from a madboy's fortress?
Lars: Yes! Yes I am!
Abner: There's a million reasons why that is not going to work.
Dimo (from the roof of a moving wagon where they managed to sneak): Dun vorry. Dere's three reasonz it iz.
Otacon: I always suspected there was a little something crazy about you, Snake. But hearing that story... Now I know it. You're nuts! Single-handedly taking out a tank? That's crazy! You're insane!
Snake: Otacon, is this your idea of a compliment?
Otacon: Yes! You're the toughest, craziest, most hardcore badass on the planet. You're... the shit!
Valerie Brannigan: (The Doctor)'s completely insane!
"A German student "mooned" a group of Hell's Angels and hurled a puppy at them before escaping on a stolen bulldozer, police have said."
There was only one sure thing I knew when starting HS. That was that this thing would go batshit insane in ways I couldn't begin to imagine. In fact, it was practically the mission statement.
"Sometimes, the only way to deal with a madman is to send in another madman."
"That's a stupid plan!"
"Exactly! A stupid plan for a stupid man!"
"...Are you high?"
"I'm crazy... and I'm right."
Bad Lip Reading, "Rick Santorum".
"When you look at the cover and see Pac-Man jumping his own video game on a motorcycle, it's easy to assume that this is just a book about awesome insane things. It's absolutely the opposite of that."
"The reason your idea is crazy is because it's not crazy enough. It's just sane enough that someone might consider it as a possibility, and you'll get caught because you were being predictable. If you, say, destroyed the world economy, thus rendering bounties null and void, and later established cat pictures as the new world currency, that would be so far outside the realm of plausibility that [it] is has to work."
