"Prince Ali!
Mighty is he!
Ali Ababwa
Strong as ten regular men, definitely!
He faced the galloping hordes
A hundred bad guys with swords
Who sent those goons to their lords?
Why, Prince Ali!"

"Still worshipping God? Last time I heard, he started worshipping me!"
Lord Flashheart, Blackadder

Tycho: "I've been reviewing engineering records and damage statistics."
Tycho "Restraining myself so you could keep up with me left me plenty of time for intellectual pursuits. I also composed a symphony and drafted a plan to bring peace to the galaxy."

Nazi: Ah, "Ace" Rimmer. Might one inquire how you escaped your bonds?
"Ace" Rimmer (what a guy!)" Just had to dislocate both shoulders, pop them behind my ears, and slip between the ropes. Of course, it's going to take major orthopedic surgery to put them back, but rest assured: That won't stop me from rescuing the princess.

"Billy's dead and he still has a better chance of getting laid than I do."

Morgan: Man, you ever have someone show up in your life, just make you look so damn small?
Chuck: Yeah, the... Look, there's always gonna be someone that's cooler or better looking or more athletic than us, but there's one thing we have that they don't.
Morgan: Well, I got a beard.

"I am very smart. Top three percent of my class at Osiris medicad, finished my residency in eight months. 'Gifted' is the term. So when I say that my kid sister makes me look like an idiot child, I want you to understand my full meaning. River...was a gift. There was nothing—science, art, theoretical physics, even dance—that didn't come to her as easily as breathing does to us."
Simon Tam, Firefly

"How can someone like this even exist? Ain't this against the rules or something?"
Dallas Genoard's opinion on the existence of Claire Stanfield, Baccano!

Now, many and diverse were the magic virtues that were in Cuchulain that were in no one else in his day. Excellence of form, excellence of shape, excellence of build, excellence in swimming, excellence in horsemanship, excellence in chess and in draughts, excellence in battle, excellence in contest, excellence in single combat, excellence in reckoning, excellence in speech, excellence in counsel, excellence in bearing, excellence in laying waste and in plundering from the neighbouring border.

"I am the strongest of the Guys! I RUN AWAY THE MOST!"

"Takeshi Kitano, aka "Beat Takeshi". Japanese film director, comedien, singer, actor, screenwriter, poet, painter—okay, what WASN'T this guy?and one-time video game designer. Yeah, y'hear that? One time. 'Cause one time is all he needed."

"The trouble with the tenth Doctor at this point is that Russell T Davies is struggling to find new things to do with the character and so he backtracks and uses reliable characteristics that feel bland through overuse... Sonicking his glasses into sunnies should be a very cool moment but it just made me groan. The Doctor speaks every language, even insectoid, which means we have two unbearably conceited protagonists in this story. It would have been much more interesting had communication been a struggle. Scenes between the Doctor and Christina talking flirtatiously about their thieving lifestyles fails to muster any interest…if the spark ain't there it's just two people nattering in a very boring fashion. Why does the Doctor kiss every person that offers their lips these days? At least Matt Smith reserves himself for one woman but the tenth Doctor is like the ultimate tramp."

"After a scene in which (Kevin) Smith and (Walter) Flanagan remind you that Star Trek is a thing that exists, and Batman proposes to Silver St. Cloud (thus starting the inevitable and utterly unsurprising countdown to Silver getting her throat cut at the end of the issue), she explains to Alfred that she refers to Batman as 'Deedee' because……he gave her eleven orgasms the first time they had sex.

You know, that’s great. Really super. Batman is, after all, the best there is at everything."
