Quotes: Speak of the Devil
[Prothero is showering, while watching his own television rant about the terrorist V]
Lewis Prothero: [on television] I'll tell you what I wish. I wish I had been there! I wish I had the chance for a face-to-face. Just one chance, that's all I'd need!
[V breaks into Prothero's home]

"Speak of Cao Cao, and he appears"

Nale: My patience is wearing thin. That's 40 candidates you've showed me, and they've all sucked.
Wizard Teacher: I think you'll really like this next one. We call him...HE WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED.
Nale: Another one? Good gods, man, that's eleven so far who Must Not Be Named. Not to mention the four who Must Not Be Looked At, the two who Must Not Be Spoken To, and the one that Must Not Be Toilet-Trained.

Tara: Let's just call "She Who Will Not Be Named" another name.
—- "Crush", Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Wood: Lord Emperor, hear me out, if you would save the East! I tell you I have faced Ardneh and I know! We must arouse the One whose name should not be said, to fight for us. Or else we perish.
The Empire of the East

Rose Thorburn: The legal documents give a phone number for the lawyers. The little black book says we just need to say the firm’s name three times. Same idea, I think.
Blake Thorburn: Which isn’t ominous at all.
Rose Thorburn: Not in the slightest.

Various Characters: I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!
Cardinal Ximénez: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!
