The Pope! How many divisions has he got?
, when asked if the Vatican could counter the threat of Nazism
They say, 'Evil prevails when good men fail to act.' What they ought to say is, 'Evil prevails.'
You canít even break rules. How could you be expected to break bones?
Youíre probably a vegetarian arenít you, you big flop haired wuss!
Superman has morals. He has ethics. He is unrelentingly good. Because of that, I will win.
You're one of a kind in this world—or others. And now, your misguided sense of altruism sends you to your doom. It's like watching Isaac Newton die in a house fire in a vain attempt to save his cat.
I have more respect for you, Mulder. Youíre becoming a player. You can kill me now, but youíll never know the truth... (Mulder removes his finger from the trigger)...and thatís why Iíll win. Donít worry. This'll be our secret.
Poor Sarah Essen, an amateur in No Man's Land
. She confronts the Joker
in Commissioner Gordon's office, which is crawling with babies. Dumb move: The Clown shoots her when she has no choice but to catch one.
It breaks my heart to see that Robert Beltran and Robert Duncan McNeill were chosen to face off with Kurtwood Smith
ís Annorax because they are two of the weakest performers in a mixed regular cast. McNeill makes Paris far too stubborn and donít get me started on Beltran's hero worship of their host!
Itís a shame because I think Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan (Seven would be able to see the logic

is, ostensibly, a bad guy, but heís also a guy who tries to break the Beast out of prison, not for his own gain, but because heís helping out a fellow mutant. Itís a nice introduction to how he works, especially with the way he calls out Xavier for leaving his student to rot in jail. For his part, the Beast politely refuses the rescue, which does a nice job of representing Xavierís more pacifist views. Or, you know, as pacifist as you can be while still running an outlaw paramilitary strike force featuring a guy who with can punch you with a fist made of knives
