Quotes: Talking the Monster to Death
Red Mage: The idea was to delay the final battle until we leveled back up, when actually we'd just ignore Chaos until the heat death of the universe. And then, y'know, not our problem. But then he argued me down from infinity to 24 hours.
Black Mage: That's less than ideal.
Red Mage: He had a better bargaining position since he's all-powerful.
Black Mage: Excuses, excuses.

Sky Pirate: You know, I could swear you looked different just moments ago... before you went out of sight for a few minutes.
[Beat panel]
Sean: I think the ornate brass scrollwork on your sword has made it less durable than a simpler one, and maybe that multi-lens thingy is all just plain glass and serves no functional purpose? Also pieces of your outfit seems to be inspired by various fashions of 1800s colonialism! Just a warning, but you might have a hard time explaining 'Sorry about the occupation, but this jacket has nice lines, don't you think?'
Sky Pirate: [Stares, jaw agape]
Sean: And oh my goodness you dropped a sprocket and some guy over there said that Queen Victoria was stupid.
Sky Pirate: [Head explodes]

"Dalek! You have been defeated. Surrender! You have failed. Your forces are destroyed, your home planet a burnt cinder circling a dead sun. Even Davros, your creator, is dead! You have no superiors, no inferiors, no reinforcements, no hope, no rescue! You're trapped, a trillion miles and a thousand years from a disintegrated home. I have defeated you. You no longer serve any purpose."
The Seventh Doctor to a self-destructing Dalek, "Remembrance Of The Daleks"

Batman: What are you gonna do... Talk me to death?
Owlman: Actually... *PUNCH* I thought I'd beat you to death.

"But who actually commited the crime... is you! No alibi, no justice, no dreams, no hope! It's time to pay for your crimes! TAKE THIS!"

"I see you fight with words, like all beneath the banner of the Bear. Let us hope your skill with weapons proves greater."
Legate Lanius, Fallout: New Vegas

Fluttershy: (softly) How dare you... (louder) How dare you! Listen here, mister. Just because you're big doesn't mean you get to be a bully. You may have huge teeth, and sharp scales, and snore smoke, and breathe fire. But you do not— I repeat— You do not! Hurt! My! Friends! You got that?
Dragon: (whimpers)
Fluttershy: Well?
Dragon:: But that rainbow one kicked me. (Referring to Rainbow Dash)
Fluttershy: And I am very sorry about that. But you're bigger than she is, and you should know better. You should also know better than to take a nap where your snoring can become a health hazard to other creatures.
Dragon: But I—
Fluttershy: Don't you "but I" me, mister. Now what do you have to say for yourself? I said, what do you have to say for yourself?
Dragon: (starts crying)
Fluttershy: (comforting voice) There, there. No need to cry. You're not a bad dragon, you just made a bad decision. Now go pack your things. You just need to find a new place to sleep. That's all.

Manabe: (with Tranquil Fury) Yo, Moritani.
Moritani: Oh, Manabe, what's up?
Manabe: This is your doing, isn't it? (Holds up a drawing of Kotoura throwing up and reading "You stink, Barfoura! Get Out of here!")
Moritani: Wh-What are you talking about? I don't know what you're trying to say.
Manabe: Don't play dumb with me! When Kotoura threw up, it was your fortune she was telling, right? You don't deny that, do you?
Moritani: Wh-What if it was? Are you saying it's my fault she threw up?
Manabe: (smirking) Yes, your mind is so disgusting, it made Kotoura puke!
Moritani: Why are you making me out to be the bad guy?! What she does is much worse! She peeks into people's minds without permission! note  I bet she told you, (mockingly) "Oh woe is me! Please save me!" Right?
Manabe: No, She never told me anything. She kept it all bottled up inside of her.
Moritani: Why? Why do you always take her side?!
Manabe: Because I like her! Got a problem with that?!
* Stunned Silence fills the room*

Kotoura-san, towards the end of episode 2.

Phelous D1: Mwa ha ha ha ha!
Phelous: You should kill yourself.
Phelous D1: Ha ha ha- you're right. Computer, self destruct.
* Phelous D1's ship explodes*
