Quotes: Ratings Stunt

Seven of Nine learns the art of WWF and takes on The Rock! No I’m not blissed out on drugs!...

That is the current state of the Jaguars right now. Bereft of a talented roster or sentient fans, they exist mainly to serve as the NFL’s lab rat. We’ll put them in London! We’ll put them on the Internet! We’ll make them the first helmet-less team! We’ll inject them with liquid uranium! We’ll replace all their players with cyborg apes!

The Jaguars are NOT FDA-approved.
