Quotes: Genius Bruiser
"As it turns out, this towering blond monster who casually told Sylvester Stallone, 'I will break you,' could have, in fact, probably calculated the amount of effort (in force pounds per square inch and Joules expenditure) needed to do just that in his head."

Breadbun: I'm sorry. Being a powerful barbarian woman, you probably don't care about any of this...
Breadbun: ...I guess you really can't judge a book by its cover.
...which is in direct contradiction to what I learned in business college.
For those of you to whom this last tidbit of knowledge comes as a surprise, I would hasten to point out that I have indeed attended higher learnin' institutes, as that is the only way to obtain the master's type degree that I possess. If perchance you wonder, as some do, why a person with such credentials should choose the line of work that I have to pursue, my reasons are twofold:
First-us, I am a social type who perfers workin' with people; and second, I find my sensitive nature is repelled by the ruthlessness necessitated by bein' an upper management type. I simply do not have it in me to mess up people's lives with layoffs and plant shut-downs and the like. Rather, I find it far more sociable to break an occasional leg or two or perhaps rearrange a face a little than to live with the more long-term damage inflicted by upper management for the good of their respective companies. Therefore, as I am indeed presented with the enviable position of havin' a choice in career paths, I have traditionally opted to be an order taker rather than an order giver. It's a cleaner way to make a livin'.
Guido, in M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link by Robert Asprin.

Sports Agent: How many football players do you know who speak four languages, read philosophy, and run with the bulls at Pamplona?
Det. Lennie Briscoe: Guy sounds brilliant. Except for the part about the bulls.
Law & Order, "Maritime"

Bane, to me, is something we havenít dealt with in the films. We wanted to do something very different in this film. Heís a primarily physical villain, heís a classic movie monster in a way ó but with a terrific brain.

It doesn't matter if you have high level spells if someone else has high-level spells and enough strength to crush your windpipe!

Given enough time, any man can master their body. With enough knowledge, any man can become wise. It's a true warrior who can master both.
Emperor Yoshiro, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
