Quotes: Too Dumb to Fool

"...Doggett saves the day in a way that Mulder never could have. Because he has absolutely no imagination whatsoever. It's both intelligent and very funny. The very nature of Doggett's character is built upon the fact that he doesn't believe in the paranormal as a matter of course and he needs things to make sense in order to buy into them. He is the only person who can combat Tommy's twisted imagination because he is a natural born sceptic to this sort of weirdness. It can't hurt him because he doesn't believe in it."
Joe Ford on The X-Files, "Scary Monsters"

Seagoon: "I don't know."
Eccles: "Oh, he got it right first time.."

Wheatley: Um..."True". I'll go "True". Neh, that was easy. I'll be honest, I might have heard that one before though. Sort of cheating.
Glados: It's a paradox! There IS no answer! Look! This place is gonna blow up if I don't get back in my body!
Wheatley: Uuh, "False". I'll go "False".

When you talk, sometimes I get confused. My ideas of what's right and wrong get mixed up. That's why I'm bringing this. As soon as I start thinking it's all right to steal from our employees, I'm going to start hitting you with the stick.
Helix, Freefall
