Quotes: Evil Pays Better
"Of course she is. I've been at this Super Hero game long enough to know that the hot chicks always turn evil. Probably because evil pays better."
Spiderman, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. On Black Widow working for Dr. Doom.

Hear the drum pounding out of time
Another protester has crossed the line (Hey!)
To find, the money's on the other side...
Green Day, Holiday

Evil is just so much more profitable than good, and more fun.
Warp Darkmatter, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins

"How come the bad guys make all the money?"

Harry Tasker: Now why are you helping these raving psychotics?
Juno Skinnner: Because they're very well-funded raving psychotics.
True Lies

Weaver: It’s the same, being a villain. I went there, I did that for a few months. Risked my life, hurt people, made an incredible amount of money, but I look back, and it wasn’t worth it. I value the people I got to know and love far more than I do the money, the power, the fame. They’re the only thing I regret leaving behind.
Small Child: How much money?
Renard: You're missing the point.
Weaver: Fifteen or twenty million.
Renard: Shhh(Changes words)-ugar.
