General Page Quote Discussion: get usage counts

This thread is for general discussion of page quotes, whether to change, move or remove them.

Unused quotes should be put on a Quotes Wiki page (just replace the namespace in the URL of the wiki page you are making a quotes page for with Quotes/) or, if they don't have an article, on Quotes Looking for an Article.

The bottommost on the quotes page is best.

I actually prefer the first one.

No, the other one.
I don't like any of them. Trains are bad at stopping even at slow speeds, so they don't make for good quotations, methinks.

I really like the Burma-Shave quote.

Useless Boyfriend's quote relies on knowledge of the film to even establish that it's about someone's boyfriend. Axe?

Kill.

 932 Larkmarn, Mon, 6th May '13 10:11:37 AM Relationship Status: Hello, I love you
Axe it.

Spoken Word In Music: It's certainly an example, but... why is this the quote? It's not a terribly famous song (and I've been a BNL fan for a long time and I like the song a lot), it doesn't really... embody the concept or clearly demonstrate it. It's a great example, just not a great quote. Without context there would be zero reason to think it has any connection to this trope.

Any opinions on Clucking Funny? My previous post.

About Nocturna's suggestion:

I'd be for it. I always include a note that additional quotes go to the tab. I think one or twice I mentioned that new ideas should be discussed here, but it was for those rather weak that do no serious harm but we were not terribly impressed with them.

It's a good idea no leave a note to make sure that a good quote stays on the page.
[down] & [down][down]: I haven't seen that one. Yes, that's a good one. I'll replace it and move the one from the song to the quotes.

[up] The quote from Stroszek seems to be pretty decent: "We have a 10-80 out here, a truck on fire, we have a man on the lift, we are unable to find the switch to turn the lift off, we can't stop the dancing chickens."

At 932:

—> Nostalgia Critic: Give Jeremy Irons some credit too. He actually tries to sing this damn thing instead of speaking all the way through, but does he succeed? (Clip of sing talking) Well... He sounds evil any ways. Even near the end as everything is getting louder and more passionate, he still sorta keeps that strange British monotone.note  —-> Discussion on "Be Prepared" from Lion King in his "Top 11 Villain Songs" review.

That better?

Don't make me destroy you. @ Castle Series
Not So Invincible After All has a quote with no relevance to the trope description.

 938 nrjxll, Mon, 6th May '13 6:16:50 PM Relationship Status: Not war
[up][up]Not really. It took me a moment before I could spot the relevance, and said relevance isn't the greatest.

How? It's directly stated in the second sentence that it sounds more like talking than singing.

[up][up][up]Is it just me or is the description confusing as heck? Whatever, at least I can see the quote has nothing to do with the trope. Kill it.

[up]Same. I like that quote.

Lose the quote for Not So Invincible After All.
 942 Another Duck, Tue, 7th May '13 7:09:40 AM from Stockholm Relationship Status: Chocolate!
No, the other one.
[up]I think that one's directly misleading.

Not So Invincible After All's quote is bad. Kill it.

Token Human has a rather long (tall?) Futurama quote that I'm pretty sure it's not even an example of the trope. I think it should be killed.

"Darkness is light's light of darkness as a dark farewell to dark lightness."
It isn't too long and isn't too bad as it is an example, but it's not good.

Huh, really? I don't think it's all that bad.

Yeah, I think it's fine.
