Hamlet, Act 2 Scene 2

"This community means about as much to me as a festering bowl of dog snot. You think I care about the pea-brained yokels of this town? If you took their combined IQ and multiplied it by a hundred, you might have enough intelligence to tie your shoe, if you didn't drool all over yourself first!

That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.....And so my job is not to worry about those people."
Mitt Romney, not knowing that he's being recorded, real life.

"And so you poisoned the tree, you betrayed Thalia, you set us up - all to help Kronos destroy the gods."

"Because I want everybody in the audience to hear you."
"What audience?"
Then his eyes narrowed. He looked behind him and his goons did the same. They gasped and stumbled back.
Above the pool, shimmering in the rainbow mist, was an Iris-message vision of Dionysus, Tantalus, and the whole camp in the dining pavilion. They sat in stunned silence, watching us.
"Well," said Dionysus wryly, "some unplanned dinner entertainment."
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, page 240.
