Quotes: Jerkass Has a Point
Belkar: Me, I'm a heartless little bastard. I can shrug that kind of thing off. But you, it seems like it might bother you down the road.
Roy: You -- You of all people -- You have no right to -- (Beat Panel) Fine. We keep going. Haley, you look for traps. You two, behind us.
Haley: What are we going to do if we find —
Roy: I don't know yet! I'll think of something on the way. Now MOVE!
Elan: Geez, Belkar, I can't believe you said all that to Roy. Don't you think it was a little harsh?
Belkar: Isn't that why you losers keep me around? Hurting people is the only thing I'm good at.
Order of the Stick #881

Discord: I never thought you'd be the kind of pony who would think she was better than everypony else.
Twilight Sparkle: I don't think I'm better than anypony!
Discord: Oh, well, how silly of me to assume that you would think that. All you did was choose to keep your precious princess self out of harm's way while your friends thrust themselves right into it... I'm sure you'll all be the best of pals again when they return from their terrifying, yet deeply bonding experience — that they're having without you.

"Subtlety seems to have flown out the window in this movie. Take for example when Michael and Blue go to a gas station for supplies. The attendant has a baby next to her and is blowing all the smoke in the babies face (and I mean she is all but blowing all the smoke directly in her mouth). Michael as politely as possible tells her that might not be the safest thing. But Michael is painted as the stuck up prick so everything he says no matter how rational is wrong. Same as when they are driving by the site of a drive by shooting and Michael asks “How can people live like this?” Blue gives Michael a look like “How dare you sir! This is the perfect life!”"
Miles Antwiler on The Sunchaser (1996)
