Quotes: Reality Ensues
Jon: Oh ho ho! Looks like they caught ol' Kevin after all. His tricks and toy cars weren't enough to keep the fully-grown robbers with more-developed brains at bay.
Newspaper Headline: Missing since 1992
JonTron plays Home Alone for the SNES

[BLAM!]
Revy: Shut the fuck up. Can't you see I wasn't even listening? I mean, were you trying to sell me the damn gun or what?

"Sshhh. My common sense is tingling."

"If anybody from the outside world could see how you treat me, you would be in JAIL!"
Meg, Family Guy, "Seahorse Seashell Party"

"It's so cold my internal processor is running at peak efficiency!"
Bender, Futurama

"In a game, it would work!"
Momogawa, while having trouble driving a real tank, Girls und Panzer

His face set in an expression of grim determination, Don raised his leg and slammed the heel of his foot into the lock. There was a satisfying crack as the door completely failed to burst open in an explosion of reinforced metal. A crippling pain shot up his leg and a feeling of nausea overwhelmed him as the source of the cracking sound became apparent.

Fido: What exactly is an 'open' and 'closed' relationship again?
Ken: Well, in many cultures, including the one I was raised in, you kinda are expected to only... spend the nights with your mate-slash-romantic-partner, and nobody else.
Fido: ... That's odd... only thing I gotta go on here is genetic memory, and with hell hounds, their living situation is, um...
Ken: Yeah, that's why interspecies relationships often stumble over misunderstandings.

"I wanted to become a superhero. I studied hard and worked out, so I could do it. But, one day, my teacher told me the truth: There's no job market for superheroes."
Masayoshi Hazama, Samurai Flamenco

... But at no time is there this ridiculous fated destiny, this greater power motivating them to bake, bake, bake for it is what they were born to do! There’s no altruistic overblown pixie dust fate of “YOU MUST BAKE! Yeast is in your BLOOD! SUGAR IS YOUR LIFE FORCE! SPREAD THE JOY OF BUTTER!” among the women who run it. The bakery is work. It’s work they love, and they use recipes that are a family heirloom of experience and technique, but it is not an experience during which destiny and magical baker dust combine to protect them from the utter boredom of payroll, or the drudgery of cleaning. The bakery is a vocation, and a job, and it is an equal part of luck and labor that yield the success they’ve had so far. If Sophie had a motto on the wall, it’d probably be that ‘Luck is where opportunity and preparation meet.” Sophie works her ass off, as do her grandmother and the rest of their employees, and I had a lot of respect for her for that aspect of her character alone.
Review of Sugar Rush

(Quackerjack, Louie and Dewey are near the gondola system.)
Quackerjack: Behold! My master plan! On one gondola, dozens of innocent citizens. On the other, convicted criminals. And both gondolas are filled with high explosives. Hehehehe!
Dewey: So?
Quackerjack: So, I gave the people on each gondola a detonator for the other. Now, each side is faced with a moral dilemma. Kill or be killed, and they have 15 minutes to decide before I do! Hahaha!
(A gondola blows up.)
Quackerjack: What the...?! What just happened?!
Louie: Looks like the criminals blew up the civilians.
Quackerjack: But they weren't supposed to do that! I wanted to push the button!
Dewey: Then you shouldn't have given them detonators.
Louie: Especially to the criminals.
