Quotes / I Just Want to Have Friends

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I'm waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
I'm waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

Goodbye, my only friend
Oh, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny
If it weren't
So sad
Well you have been replaced
I don't need anyone now
When I delete you maybe
I'll stop feeling so bad...
GLaDOS, "Want You Gone", closing credits of Portal 2

"A hand for each hand was planned for the world
Why don't my fingers reach?
Millions of grains of sand in the world
Why's mine a lonely beach?
Where are the heels to click to my clack?
Where is the voice to answer mine back?
I'm all alone in the world"
—"All Alone in the World", Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

Things like sightseeing, filmgoing and dining out aren't half as much fun by one's self. Half as fun would make logical sense, but it's really closer to one one-hundredth as fun.
Mike Nelson's Mind Over Matters

It's enough...yeah, it's enough. I don't need anything else, anymore.
Greed on friendship, last words, Fullmetal Alchemist

Cause I don't need this life
I just need…
Somebody to die for
Somebody to cry for
When I'm lonely
— "Somebody To Die For" by Hurts

Out of the zone, now I can see
I don't need them and they don't need me
I guess I'll go home, try to be sane
Try to pretend none of it happened
Destined to be lonely old me
Whoops-a-daisy, I thought I was happy
Ah, ah
Why won't they talk to me?
Tame Impala, 'Why Won't They Talk To Me?'

Ibai: I've never had very many friends, you see. Well, I've had my family, of course. They’ve provided such fantastic companionship; I wouldn’t want to give the impression that they haven't. I love them very much. But yes, they are my family. It’s a different sort of relationship. I feel there is something uniquely special about becoming friends with someone who is in no way obligated to you already. It’s a bit purer, in an odd way.
Hector: [thinking] Strangely, he knew exactly what Ibai was talking about. In his lonelier days, he'd often pondered the nature of companionship himself, and indeed, he'd reached a similar conclusion. There was something different about the approval of others, of strangers. It vindicated one’s existence, perhaps. That was what he’d come to believe, anyway.

Ling: Greed, this is what you desperately wanted, isn't it?
Greed: Yeah, you're right. This is what I wanted. I wanted the chance to have friends like these.

Shadow Yu: I was afraid of a future without my friends. Afraid of leaving, leaving everyone behind and moving forward on my own. I don't want to be alone again! I've been alone, and I won't go back!
Yu: Yeah. I won't go back!

So when disaster struck me
No heart left to offend
Oh, I only wanted friends
Where are they now?
Oh, will you be there forever?
Say I'll never be without?
Don't blame me for my doubt

You see, I cannot stand alone
I'm incapable of breathing, incapable of love
In my world, make me safe, take me home
I'm incapable of breathing, incapable of love
Gene, "Where Are They Now?"

Veronica: Oswald, if it's money you want, I can get you more...
Penguin: SHUT UP! All I wanted from you, dearie, was a little friendship. (Sadly) That would have cost you nothing.

The Doctor: The last time. With Martha, like I said, it... It got complicated. And that was all my fault, I... I just want a mate.note 
Donna: You just want to mate?!
The Doctor: I just want a mate!
The Doctor: A mate! I want a mate!
Donna: Well just as well, 'cuz I'm not 'avin any o' that nonsense! I mean, you're just a long streak of... Nothin'! You know, alien nothin'!
The Doctor: Well, there we are then. Okay.
