Seagoon: "Good. Now, about the Yehti. Tell me, are they tall and shaggy, or are they more squat with smooth skin?"
Blooknok: "Yes, they are!"
Seagoon: "Oh, and they walk upright like humans, and have the powers of telepathy, and in actual fact they are the missing link, the step from animals to man in one direction, while in another, far higher in intelligence and having the ability to possess one's mind?"
Bloodnok: (pause) "Is there any more information I can give you?"
The Goon Show, "Yehti"

"I criticize many people when they just say a movie is boring because that is not descriptive. Many times people refer to length when they mention that although that does not fit. There are many long movies that are engrossing all the way through because it is so well written and you need all that time to tell the complex story. So why do I find this movie so boring? Well, i's because this isn't a movie. Okay, technically speaking it is but it's not at the same time. I swear I'm not trying to do some Zen riddle. What I mean is this is more a dry college lecture with some action scenes spliced in. I don't care how many squibs you set off, I'm still gonna fall asleep to Ben Stein talking about voodoo economics."
'Miles Antwiler on Gods and Generals''

"Exposition, exposition, rush it out A.S.AP.!"
The Nostalgia Critic (sung to the tune of Ode to Joy), The Nostalgia Critic
