Quotes: Swiss Cheese Security

Kaiba: These guys are my elite KaibaCorp security agents.
Joey: Yeah, great security, Kaiba. We just walked through the front door, no problem.
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, Episode 39: "Card Games at 20,000 Feet"

Colin: I found him in the Oval Office. There didn't seem to be much security around; I just walked right in.

Lawson: Aren't you going to ask how I got in here?
Angel: No, you'd be amazed at how many people break into this building on a regular basis.
Lawson: (mock despair) But I had a whole bit planned! About how "I was always good with technology", and "you of all people should know that"?
Angel: Yeah. Sorry. This place might as well be a bus station.
—"Why We Fight", Angel

Care to explain how our security was penetrated by a child?
Captain Black, Jackie Chan Adventures


We're so close, Secret Service. We're so close to letting a black President serve out two terms without anyone killing him, which would be a huge accomplishment for America in general, and you are FUCKING IT ALL UP by letting any crazy person with a gun or knife stand right next to Obama in an elevator for eight minutes. You assholes still have two years left!
Drew Magary, Make It Stop

Yahtzee: "I'd like a room for tonight, please! Just for one night, at this hotel, where this rich rock star is staying."
Gabriel: "Hi, I'd like to learn to take off and fly a plane? Don't need to worry about landing."
Yahtzee: Now, the interior of Channel 6 studios is surprisingly insecure...
Gabriel: Well, I mean, y'know. They have that impenetrable wall of 'boom gate and 60-year-old unarmed man behind not-bulletproof-or-plasma-proof glass.' Why would you need security inside after that?
Let's Play Dreamweb

Shinji and his pals get a trip onto a fleet of ships. Now, Shinji I understand, being as he's the one who can pilot the EVA... But his school chums allowed into a top-secret paramilitary unit just to fool around? No wonder we won WWII.

You decide which is more contrived: that the Hirogen happen to know exactly where a hidden comm unit might be located, or the fact they have one built into a lunch counter.

The answer is neither. The winning contrivance is that he "locks out Bridge control" so that Harry can't stop him. We have had many things lock out or steal control from the Bridge throughout the franchise, but this is the first time it's been done from A FUCKING KITCHEN.
SF Debris on Star Trek: Voyager, "Flesh and Blood"

Two cops burst in. Lex, seeing it to be a bad scene, starts to duck behind his desk and call his security.

Yes, that's right, his security has failed yet again to stop someone from coming through the doors.

You know, Lex, I'd just buy some automated turrets that shoot at anything that goes beyond the gates. Spider Jerusalem style. Have a sign: 'Warning. Unauthorized access means fragging. Please press the button.' That's what I'd do, if it were my billions.
Neal bailey on Smallville ("Lockdown")

Clark really needs to install a security system on the farm. You know those robots he has in the Fortress in the comics? He needs to have them on this show and move them to the farm, right now. How many times has the farm been crashed? Lex practically lived there, Doomsday fell through the roof, I think Tess might actually have a key and every Kryptonian that visits the planet has valet parking at Chez Kent built into their travel package. Clark, I say this with all the love in the world, get better locks.
Julian Finn on Smallville, "Escape"

"Needless to say, as is always the case in these situations, the holodeck safeties are off, communications are dead, Level Ten forcefields have been erected around our position, helm control has been compromised, Voyager's main processor will no longer accept Janeway's command access codes, and the replicators will only produce lukewarm coffee!"
