Goblin King: Aaand here he is at last! The hero of our little drama. Just in time for the thrilling climax! But wait - a twist! The "hero" isn't one at all. In fact, he never was. Really, Otto, you're just embarrassing yourself with this charade. Granted, you were never on my level, but being a bad guy suited you. Saving that little lady is your last remaining achievement as Spider-Man. When it all goes boom, you'll have nothing left! Hahahaha!

Peter!Spider-Man: The one and only.

Asuka: What do you mean? What is "Dragonfly?"
Sergeant Bir: Code Dragonfly means we're cut off, ma'am. The portal home just slammed shut hard and fast enough to cut a Black Knight in half, I can't raise Avalon on our comms, and whatever that little wave was, it just cut all of us from mental and spiritual contact with Avalon as well. I can't feel the Empire anymore, just everyone right here. That portal wasn't closed by our people, and since it hasn't reopened already, we have to assume it can't. We're cut off, and I have no clue how long that will last. [...] And in accordance with His Majesty's last instructions from His own lips, you are in command until relieved, Lieutenant. Orders, ma'am?
Asuka: Scheiße!

"Misato-san! Um, good morning!" Shinji tried to get his heart rate back down. 'Did she see-'

"Feeling pretty good this morning, Shin-chan?" Misato's expression turned sly. "Really? Singing and dancing around the kitchen at this hour? If you don't cool your jets, Asuka's going to wake up and see you, and I bet she'll guess why~..." she teased with a wink.

'Oh shit, she knows she knows she knows...'

I will never forget the look on their faces. All eight of them. Their faces dropped. All their courage and strength was drained right from their bodies. They had a reputation for breaking up bars, but they knew that instant, they'd made a fatal mistake. This time they walked into the wrong bar.

Gandalf: There is one other who knew Bilbo had the Ring. I looked everywhere for the creature Gollum, but the enemy found him first. I don't know how long they tortured him, but through the endless screams and inane babble, they discerned two words.
Frodo: "Shire? Baggins?" But that would lead them here!

Doctor: I need some ice.
Idi Amin: Sure, there is plenty in the fridge. Talk to the chef, I have to talk with this man.

A Westerner faced with a suicide bomber goes to pieces. Believe me, I have seen this. Just as I have seen people's reactions to other stressful situations: criminals in the electric chair, a person in water confronted by sharks. Oh, to be sure, I love to observe the look of pure horror that crosses a man's face when he realizes that he is, without doubt, going to die...
And that is the look I'm talking about.
Jonathon Killian, Scarecrow

It's not often I get to do battle with one of my enemies... in the body of one of their allies. I do so love watching them realize that when they strike me, they will hurt the body of their friend, and not me! Oh yes, that's it... that's the look.

Jeremy's body seemed to know what was coming even before impact, and the rodent part of his brain engaged its natural defenses. He went limp on the way up, hoping the predator would mistake him for dead. Post-impact, it was a different story. While wide awake, each of Jeremy Bullock's limbs tried to escape from his body in different directions, probably to find four different lawyers to sue the fight promoter that allowed this circus. Ike Turner has been in fairer fights than this.

I love the look on the DM's face here. This is the classic Dungeon Master Thousand Mile Stare, of a hardened DM taken aback at just how fucked a player is, and realizing how boned the whole campaign's become in an instant.
