Quotes: Sufficiently Advanced Alien
Chris: The thing where her bracelet has a Superman logo on it that opens up a portal to other dimensions and that’s how they fight Darkseid who is made of crows that live inside Glenn Beck? I mean, sure, that’s no more crazy than a Lex Luthor robot fighting a talking telepathic super-gorilla, but it was a total shrug moment for me. “Well, okay, I guess. If that’s how it works here.”
David: The show’s really mysticized Krypton. Like, when I think of Krypton, I think of superscience and natural wonder, not magic spells and secret cults and all of this dumb sh*t.
Chris: It has to be mystical, since it’s a planet where you can blow up and still be bitching at your kids 30 years later.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville ("Supergirl")

"Godlike aliens. Boy, do I hate godlike aliens. I'll take a critter over a godlike alien any time."
John Crichton, Farscape

"You found me out. I'm not really a god. I'm just an ordinary eternal, omniscient, super-intelligent being."
Sun God, Futurama

Ezio: You are... gods.
Minerva: (laughs) No. Not gods. We simply came... before.

Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
There is a realm of existence so far beyond your own you cannot even imagine it. I am beyond your comprehension.
I am Sovereign.
We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution. You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.
Sovereign, Mass Effect 1

"The stars themselves once lived and died at our command, and yet you still oppose our will?"
