Quotes: The End of the World as We Know It
Polo: Feather Face! If you do not charm that girl pigeon with the power of dance, the world... could be DESTROYED!
City Face: Oh nooo! Not the world! That would be just super awful for EVERYBODY!

"God has left heaven and it is time to destroy the world."

"There's never gonna be an end of the world. There's gonna be an end of you, you personally; but the world won't even flinch. You'll be lucky to get an obituary, a half inch next to the weather report on the back page of Section B. The world is never gonna end. That's what's depressing."

Giles: It's the end of the world. Everyone dies. It's rather important, really.
Willow: So what do we do?
Buffy: I stop it.

Master Fung: It has begun, 1,000 years of darkness.
Kimiko: Why 1,000?
Master Fung: Well it is really 962 years, but 1,000 sounds more ominious.

"Surely you must know how fascinated humans are by the idea of the end of the world. They’re just begging for it to come, Lyra. I’m only doing what humans have been looking forward to for years now."
Discord, Anthropology, Chapter 30

Eddy: Rise and shine! Get your Ed Flakes Cereal here!
Edd: Eddy, it's the apocalypse!
Edd: Don't look now.
Mario Head: Remember me?
(the Eds scream in response)

"No one can accurately predict when the end of the world will come. Many, many people in the past have tried, but they have all failed. Take Nostradamus, for example. He made many predictions for the end of the world and other disastrous events, but they never came true, despite what some people say. There is absolutely no way to accurately predict the end of the world or any type of catastrophe because it will never, ever be right, Eddy."

You lot, you spend all your time thinking about dying, like you're gonna get killed by eggs, or beef, or global warming, or asteroids. But you never take time to imagine the impossible. That perhaps you make it. Maybe you survive. This is the year 5.5/apple/26, five billion years in your future, and this is the day... Hold on... This is the day the sun expands. Welcome to the end of the world!

So! Earthlings! of the world. HERE. COME. THE DRUMS!
- The Master, Doctor Who, "The Sound of Drums"
