Quotes: San Dimas Time
Sonic: If we don't return in time, Elise will die on board Eggman's battleship.
Kung-Fu Jesus: What? If you don't return in time? What?! But... you can return any time you want, that's the thing, you can go back to whenever you want!
IlluminatusVespucci: People never seem to realize this when they have time machines.
— The Let's Play of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) by pokecapn, medibot, Kung-Fu Jesus, and IlluminatusVespucci

[Prisoner Of Azkaban] treats time travel like this urgent thing: "We've made it to the past! Now we've only got a few minutes to go back and stop the dementors!" No you don't, you have as much time as you need. It's fucking time travel. If you mess up, just go back and try again. Of course there's time to wait, you've got a goddamn time machine. Do it tomorrow, do it in ten years. It's the least suspenseful thing imaginable, yet they treat it as the nail-biting climax of the movie.

"And how ironic is that, that there's a time limit to go back in time?!"
The Angry Video Game Nerd, review of Mario's Time Machine for the Super NES

"It's a time machine, Superman. It doesn't matter how long it takes to fix. Just as long as it gets fixed."
Batman, JLA

CG: OK, LET ME JUST CHECK THE UNIVERSAL CLOCK WHICH KEEPS CONSISTENT TIME FOR ALL FRAMES OF REFERENCE AND ALL PLANES OF REALITY.
CG: IT'S HALF PAST YOU'RE A MORON.
carcinoGeneticist, Homestuck

It is an abstraction weaving together the fortunes of otherwise perfectly disparate chronologies

"Dammit, Doc, why did you have to tear up that letter? If only I had more time... Wait a minute... I got all the time I want; I got a time machine!''"
Marty McFly, Back to the Future: Part I

"How is a deadline ever a problem if you had the ability to time travel? That's something I didn't notice last chapter. Just go back in time until the movie is made! I don't see how they'd stop you!"
AgainAFanficCritic reviewing BLaJ's Adventures on the Hindenburg
