Quotes: I Don't Like the Sound of That Place
Donald: Starvation Rocks, Gruesome Gulch! Who invented such doleful names, Uncle Scrooge?
Scrooge: Some liar who wanted to flatter the places!
Uncle Scrooge, "The Cattle King"

Professor Farnsworth: Good news, everyone!
Bender: Uh oh, I don't like the sound of that.
Professor: You'll be making a delivery to the planet Trisol...
Bender: Here it comes...
Professor: A mysterious world in the darkest depths of the Forbidden Zone.
Bender: Thank you, and goodnight.
Leela: Uh, Professor, are we even allowed in the Forbidden Zone?
Professor: Why, of course! It's just a name, like the Death Zone or the Zone of No Return. All the zones have names like that in the Galaxy of Terror.
Leela: Uh, Professor...
Professor: Off you go! Pleasant trip!
Futurama, "My Three Suns"

Lisa: He said [Monster Island] was just a name!
Fleeing Man: What he meant is that Monster Island is actually a peninsula!

Upamon: It's the Forbidden Valley of No Return!
Kari: Why do bad guys always name things like that?
TK: It's in their job description! It's right after really stinky breath!
Cody: Even if this place was called "The Valley of Duckies and Bunnies", with a control spire there, there's trouble.

Thought for the day: why do fictional volcanoes always have to have scary names? Like Mount Doom and Death Mountain? RL volcanoes have nice names, like Shasta and Fuji and St. Helens. Look at that, it's called SAINT. Not horrible or terrifying at all! note
