"Good morning, Voyager. I want to tell you about a friend of mine. I first met this man almost a year ago and, to tell you the truth, I didn't like him much. He seemed a little too cocky, a little too sure of himself. A lot of people had questions about him. He'd proven he'd pretty much sell himself out to the highest bidder, go wherever the wind blew him so people wondered, could you trust this person when things got tough? Would he stand side by side with you or would he let you down when you needed him most? But the fact of the matter is he proved himself right from the beginning. I wouldn't be alive right now if it weren't for him and the same goes for many of you. It took me a while to realize it. Like a lot of people, I was too caught up in first impressions to see the truth that was right in front of me. I overlooked his bravery because I was focusing on his brashness. I ignored his courage because I saw it as arrogance and I resented his friendliness because I mistook it for licentiousness. So while this man was giving us his best every minute of every day I was busy judging him. And now he's leaving. I'm proud to say that in spite of my narrow-mindedness Thomas Eugene Paris became my friend. I'm going to miss him. No more laughs over a game of pool. No more sitting up into the wee hours swapping stories. No more complaints about my cooking. (chuckling) Goodbye, Tom. I think I speak for more of us than you might imagine when I say you're going to leave an empty space when you go. I hope you find what you're looking for."
Neelix, Star Trek: Voyager, "Investigations"

"Tom Haverford is a selfish, sleazy, self-promoting, good-hearted, secretly kind and wonderful tiny, little person."
Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation

Anne Shirley: You're not an old ogre at all
Miss Barry: I am too an old ogre and don't you let on any different.

This s**t don't fly with me
I'm not racist but I would expect this from Chinese
Now lets be honest you and me...
This ain't the first black guy to steal something
In fact it probably isn't the
2nd or
3rd
or foorth
Its probably not the fith or sixth
Or 7th 8th
9 or 10th."
But when it comes to stealing kids
Thats BAD
SO F**K KONY\\
Rucka Rucka Ali, Free Kony, Dog

Townspeople:
Oh, there's nothing halfway about the Iowa way to treat you,
When we treat you, which we may not do at all.
There's an Iowa kind of special chip-on-the-shoulder attitude
We've never been without that we recall.
We can be cold as our falling thermometers in December
If you ask about our weather in July.
And we're so by God stubborn, we could stand touchin' noses
For a week at a time and never see eye to eye.
But what the heck, you're welcome, join us at the picnic.
You can eat your fill of all the food you bring yourself.
You really ought to give Iowa a try. (Provided you are contrary...)
We can be cold as our falling thermometers in December
If you ask about our weather in July.
And we're so by God stubborn, we could stand touchin' noses
For a week at a time and never see eye to eye.
But we'll give you our shirt and a back to go with it
If your crops should happen to die.
Farmer:
So, what the heck, you're welcome,
Glad to have you with us.
Farmer and Wife:
Even though we may not ever mention it again.
— "Iowa Stubborn," The Music Man

Ragna: "Goddamnit! Are you blind!? There's no way we can leave that thing roaming around! Move, or I'll cut you down with him!"
Litchi: "I'm not moving."
Ragna: "Do you really know how dangerous that thing is? He's gone far beyond any level where you can save him. Seriously, if you don't move, I'll kill you too."
Ragna: "You better choose your next words wisely."
Litchi: "Please..."
Ragna: "... Aw, jeez. Okay, okay, I got it. You can have it your way. So don't gimme that look. You're making me look like the bad guy."
Litchi: "Oh? Aren't you that vicious wanted criminal?"
Ragna: "Yeah, yeah, whatever you say. Alright, I'm takin' off, so that dirty rag is all yours. If it gets outta hand, make sure ya toss him in the incinerator. Or is it the compost heap?"
Litchi: "Ragna?"
Ragna: "Yeah?"
Litchi: "Thanks. You're a lot nicer than I thought."
Ragna: "Save it."
BlazBlue : Calamity Trigger

Never let it be said that Yang Xiao Long didn't have a heart. She did. But only for her friends, and people in need. Everyone else could fuck right off.
