Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly stupid.

We've talked before about how in more serious takes, Gotham City has to be this nightmarish hellhole of corruption and criminal control in order for Batman to be necessary, but in Gotham í66, itís just that every single person in the world is either a crook or the most gullible mark alive."''
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Batman: The Movie

I love Seska. I think she should have deposed Janeway in a Marquis rebellion in series two and taken control of the ship. She would have thrown Neelix in the Brig and had him randomly tortured, put a collar on Chakotay and dragged him around the corridors like a dog and spent every episode insulting Harry Kim until he cried like a baby. Frankly whilst everybody else treats her like a criminal she is the only person on this goddamn ship that seems real to me. For a start she has an opinion and she acts on it, she manipulates those around her into getting her own way and she happily slags off the ridiculously outdated values of the Federation...Seska shows up this bunch of monkeys for the chumps they are.

Clark has now graduated from being possibly less than astute to having full blown anterograde amnesia. (That's the Memento one.)

Not even good ones with walnuts and plush bunnies.
Julian Finn on Smallville, "Fortune"

The obligatory BURST IN ON LEX scene... Clark confronts him with the fact that the company that made Cyborg was a subsidiary of Luthorcorp. 'Aha!' Clark says. 'You am man made cyber man! Me know it!'
Lex smirks. 'You healed Chloe yet, Superman?'
Clark: 'Me heal! Er, no. Me am not Superman. Me mild mannered Clark Kent!'
Lex: 'Oh, please. You're not even wearing a disguise I can easily see through. I have an IQ in the low 200s.'
Clark: 'Me smash IQ! Where is it?'''
Neal Bailey on Smallville ("Cyborg")

Acts of goodness are not always wise, and acts of evil are not always foolish. But regardless, we shall always strive to be good.
Logarius, Bloodborne

Say, between bottomless kindness, and bottomless stupidity, donít you think thereís a paper-thin difference?

Good hearts with good intentions always lose in the end.
