Quotes: The Dog Bites Back
Cartman: I say again: F**k Jesus!
Token: Good going, you lost us the whole audience!
Cartman: Oh, f**k off, Token, ya black asshole!
(Token delivers a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown and walks off, leaving Cartman on the floor)
Butters: ... (farts on Eric and gives him the finger) Fuck you, Eric. (leaves)

So never kick a dog
Because it's just a pup
We'll fight like twenty armies and we won't give up,
So you'd better run for cover when the pup grows up!
Little People, Les Miserables

"For the treachery of the Empire against the Noghri people. We were betrayed. We have been avenged."
Rukh, after killing Thrawn, The Last Command

[It] is much safer to be feared than loved, when, of the two, either must be dispensed with. [...] Nevertheless a prince ought to inspire fear in such a way that, if he does not win love, he avoids hatred.
Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince

Even a stray has pride.
Gabranth, Final Fantasy XII

The hound strays? Treason bears a price!
One I gladly pay!
Final Fantasy XII, between Vayne and Gabranth respectively

"Turns out, mess with someone's head enough, you can turn a scared little kid into an all powerful bitch."

"One thing you could count on: you push a man too far, and sooner or later, he'd start pushing back."

"Listen, Crow thinks fear is power, but he's wrong. A beaten dog may fear you, but the second you turn your back, he's gonna strike."

"You have a dog. You beat the dog. You keep beating the dog. And you beat the dog and you beat the dog and you beat the fucking dog. And it cowers and it gets submissive. But there is going to be that day where it turns around and bites your face off. [...] You kick the dog enough times and you break it. You kick the dog one more time beyond that, and it fucking kills you."
Emilie Autumn, The Opheliac Companion.

William Hamleigh: Betrayed! By my own wife!
Bishop Waleran: You kick a dog and some day it may bite you.

Secretary Delacourt: You idiot! Do you realize what you've done? You crashed an unlicensed vehicle into a suburban area. Your orders were to keep this covert. Do you even remember what that means?! (Kruger punches a mirror) Have you completely lost your mind?! You're useless to me! If the administration realized what we're doing, they'll hang us both for treason! (Kruger chuckles) For God's sake, Kruger, are you listening to me?
Agent Kruger: Yes... yes, I'm listening. I'm sorry that we crashed the vehicle and ruined someone's lawn. But no one's going to hang us for treason. We do the hanging... (stabs Delacourt in the throat with a mirror shard)
Elysium

You were scanning me, weren't you? You were trying to make my head explode, you freaked-out maniac!

"Well well well, looks like the church mouse finally roared."
Elliot Stabler, Law & Order: SVU, "Bully"
