But, as if on purpose, when it reached the limit, [Gavrila] always proved too honest for an extremely base deed. (On a small base deed, however, he was always ready to agree.)

Vimes: They rebel by working?
Carrot: Yes, sir. Nobody wants them to think, so they get their own back by not thinking. It makes sense to a Golem, sir.

If you must know," a disconnected whisper confided, "we dressed in blackface and wrote filthy slogans on the side of the citadel. Horrible, horrible things about Princess Tanalasta and a centaur.

A strong political statement, Alias thought sarcastically.

I looked up a girl's skirt the other day. Isn't that the best kind of evil?

Revenge! Sub par snacks! Deal with my wrath!
Cassiel celebrates her first successful ploy in Misfile

Chimera: Uhmmmmmm... excuse me... but what in the seventeen hells are you doing?
Dewcup: Pardon me. I was told that poking and otherwise annoying huge, fearsome creatures was "bad".
Chimera: An apt description. Why would you want this?
Dewcup: I am Princess Dewcup of the Wood Elves. A recent encounter with a Drow has showed me a new way of life. A life of power and strength. I am abandoning my Wood-Elf ways and turning to badness. I wish to join the Drow.
Chimera: Gotcha. I see your problem. You have confused "bad" meaning "evil" with "bad" meaning "really stupid".
Dewcup: And that's not what I wish to become?
Chimera: No, you seem to have that one down pat.

Damn! She leaked The Queen’s phone number because she had like, 3 less housekeepers than her ex-husband? That’s crazy and insane and I LOVE IT, because that’s some down and dirty shade. You’ve got to remember – this was back in the early 90s when changing your phone number was a true pain in the ass. You had to pull the Yellow Pages from the closet, find the number for the phone company, call up the phone company, explain 400 times why you needed a new number, get put on hold for half an hour, nearly lose your damn mind from listening to the muzak version of 'Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover' over and over again before getting transferred to Pager Support and hung up on. The only thing more stone cold would have been if Diana had fucked with the satellite dish.
Michael K., "Princess Diana Leaked A Bunch Of Royal Phone Numbers After Her Divorce"

There was once a simpler time in TNA, a time when Dixie would show up randomly on television, in some vague capacity wherein you knew she ran things behind the scenes. She’d show up when they signed big names like Hulk Hogan, flex with him, say something inane, look kinda goofy, and then vanish for another couple of months until there was another opportunity to show/flex/inane/goofy/vanish.

It was fine.

I knew the drill; every wrestling promotion needs money, so you find someone who can foot the bills. In return, once in a while, you’d give them some screen time...Wait.

WHAT ON EARTH IS SHE WEARING?

Is it a poncho?

A table cloth?

Maybe a teenage girl’s bed sheet?

Her coming out wearing that should have told us, from day one, what kind of nefarious nogoodnik she was about to become. And if her wacky wardrobe didn’t, her lambasting of AJ sure did. Why, she said he was nothing more than, and I am quoting here, “An average fish in any pond!”

AVERAGE FISH!

ANY POND!

If folks ever get tired of screaming “Daniel Bryan” at WWE shows, “AVERAGE FISH! ANY POND!” would be a great chant. Also — AJ was no longer the PHENOMENAL ONE. No, he was now THE MARGINAL ONE!

The Hirogen leader here reminds me of the hyper intelligent Gremlin from Gremlins 2 who takes the brain potion and dazzles with a rendition of New York, New York!...Compare and contrast to the Borg for TNG and the Jem H’adar for DS9 who remained pretty consistently and instantly memorable from the outset. Watching the Hirogen breaking open one of Neelix’s French sticks as though he has watched too many episodes of 'Allo 'Allo! is farcical. The Hirogen – don’t mess with them or they’ll snap your bread sticks in half!
Joe FOrd on Star Trek: Voyager, "The Killing Game Pt. 1"

Making fun of his hair color? That ruthless son of a bitch!

Aha, I'm going to waste all their minutes! Mwa ha ha ha!
The Nostalgia Critic mocking the villain of Rock-A-Doodle

No. Uh uh. No no no no no no. It's not gonna go down like that. I am not living in fear of FUCKING SEAHORSES... You win this round, seahorses. You're real tough. Real badass. But humanity always wins the end, 'cause you know why? Next coral reef I see? I'm gonna pollute the fuck out of it. So CHOKE ON DEEZ NUTZ! (rains styrofoam peanuts around the room)
Noah Antwiler on Ultima: Runes of Virtue

I'm gonna find the wrong crowd and not read things together! Yeah, That's right! Entire novels left unopened!

Morris: "Boris! I’m doing something really wicked!"
Boris: "Oh?"
Morris: "I'm riding along with my eyes closed!"
Boris: "Morris, that’s not wicked, that’s rather stupid!"
Morris: "Oh..." [Rides into a tree]

    Real Life 

I hate comedians that are like, "Fucking strap in, motherfuckers, 'cuz I'm about to get really dangerous!" and then the next thing they always say is, "The fucking food on airplanes is BULLSHIT!!!" There is nothing safer than a comedian who tells you he's dangerous.
