->Alright now that I have your ears as well as your spines; allow me to indulge myself for a moment and tell you all what every content creator has always wanted to say to their audience: '''FUCK ALL Y'ALL!!'''

->I didn't want anything to do with a group of obsessives who paid to get together to talk incessantly about a TV show that had been cancelled. It wasn't logical...
-->--'''Creator/WilliamShatner''', on his reluctance to attend ''Franchise/StarTrek'' conventions

->You see, whether you can draw like this or not, being able to think up this kind of design, it depends on whether or not you can say to yourself, "Oh, yeah, girls like this exist in real life." If you donít spend time watching real people, you canít do this, because youíve never seen it. Some people spend their lives interested only in themselves. Almost all Japanese animation is produced with hardly any basis taken from observing real people, you know. Itís produced by humans who canít stand looking at other humans. And thatís why the industry is full of otaku!

->Archerís last big character moment is to mount a philosophical objection to the very idea of ''Star Trek'', to suggest that the universe is [[CosmicHorrorStory full of horror]] rather than wonder and that mankind likely has no business looking to the stars for something majestic or beautiful. Archer sounds resentful of what the ''Star Trek'' universe has taken from him.\\\
Again, this is entirely understandable. Rick Berman and Brannon Braga had given well over a decade of each of their lives to the franchise, and had seen all of that time and energy disgarded by a network that would not last much longer either. The duo had given everything to ''Star Trek'', only to find themselves hated in the fan press and cut off at the knees by a new management that understood nothing of the franchise.

->You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. [[ViewersAreMorons You people are stupid]].

->Following in the footsteps of Jake Lloyd and Creator/NataliePortman, Hayden Christensen is calling out ''Star Wars'' for ripping a stinky fart on his career... there was a reason why you went from seeing his dumb face everywhere to seeing it only when you searched the words ď10 Worst Characters in Star WarsĒ on the internet.

->It just feels like after his debacle involving Mia Farrow and his underage stepdaughter, [[Creator/WoodyAllen (Woody) Allen]] is perfectly fine by running on cruise control. Whereas before he was always venturing into new territory and breaking new ground, now he says 'fuck it' and is content playing it safe with his drawer ideas. [[BulletsOverBroadway What if a mobster became a playwright?]] Fuck it, I can stretch that out to 90 minutes and ride things out another year. A Greek tragedy set to [[WriteWhoYouKnow banal upper class New Yorkers' petty issues]]? Fuck it, I donít feel like doing anything meaningful.

->One of the causes of unhappiness among intellectuals in the present day is that so many of them, especially those whose skill is literary, find no opportunity for the independent exercise of their talents, but have to hire themselves out to rich corporations directed by Philistines, who insist upon their producing what [[LowestCommonDenominator they themselves regard as pernicious nonsense]]...Such work cannot bring any real satisfaction, and in the course of reconciling himself to the doing of it, a man has to make himself so cynical that he can no longer derive whole-hearted satisfaction from anything whatever...Without self-respect genuine happiness is scarcely possible. And the man who is ashamed of his work can hardly achieve self-respect.

->[[GeneRoddenberry Gene]] was terrified that the studio would try and take the show away from him, so we ended up with this bizarre circumstance that Gene was so afraid of losing his show that he gave control away [[PointyHairedBoss to his lawyer]] and he didnít trust me or Dorothy Fontana after. That was the part that hurt Dorothy and I the most, is that Gene stopped trusting us and started treating us as the enemy....And we go through rewrite after rewrite after rewrite and the script doesnít get any better and I see what is going on and I donít want to be trapped in an office where we have hypocrites running the place. I canít deal with this, [[CreatorBreakdown my health was already starting to suffer]]. So I started taking vitamins and nothing is getting better and I said 'I canít deal with this hypocrisy'... I get offered a really nice deal over at Columbia. So I tell Gene I want take the deal at Columbia and to please not renew my contract. He and I part pretending to be amicable and a week later my agent calls me and says 'why are people saying [[InTheBack you got fired]] from ''Star Trek?''[='=]

->''AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #406'' was J.M. [=DeMatteis=]'s last issue as writer. I think he grew increasingly weary of [[CrisisCrossover the weekly cross-title continuity]], and never getting the chance to tell his own stories -- stories in which he alone could do the beginning, the middle and the end. This couldn't have been an easy decision for J.M. to make, because I know how much he liked Ben Reilly and how excited he was about the clone saga from the very start. But I think he just reached the breaking point, and I can't say I really blame him. I know Marc was really looking forward to the moment when Ben would finally [[LegacyCharacter don the Spider-Man suit]], and getting the chance to write about the "new" web-slinger, but that pivotal moment just kept [[StatusQuoIsGod getting pushed further and further back]], amidst more and more gimmicky crossovers and an overall series direction that was spiraling out of control. So, unfortunately, he left.

->ĎI canít believe [[ActorExistenceFailure heís dead]]. He was the most alive person Iíve ever metÖí I found the Creator/JonPertwee interview in ''[DoctorWhoMagazine]'' extremely interesting, especially with regards to his approach to the role in season eleven. By all accounts he was grieving for the loss of Creator/KatyManning and Roger Delgado, he was working with the knowledge that the role that had made him a household name was soon to come to an end and he was [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore no longer surrounded by comforts]] such as UNIT and the Brigadier on a regular basis. To throw in [[Creator/ElisabethSladen a new assistant]] must have been tricky especially after his relationship with Katy Manning was so spectacular. And yet somehow (and this is something that he acknowledges with some pride) there is a palpable chemistry between him and [[Creator/ElisabethSladen Sarah Jane]]...Away from Sarah is where the problems lie, as Pertwee seems to breeze through one scene to the next without a care in the world. Is this really the same Doctor who screamed out in frustration when the world was burning in [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS7E4Inferno}} Inferno]]?

->It's an old story: a visionary director tired of constantly having to justify his mad-prophet vision to buttoned-down bean counters with calculators for hearts so he sets up shop on his own. It's gonna be different, this time, see? This time, the inmates will be RunningTheAsylum and making mad moolah in the process. Three months later, the now penniless, despondent visionary comes crawling back to his old studio, begging for any job, no matter how dispiriting or humiliating.

->[Gene] Hackman has never specifically pointed at ''Welcome to Mooseport'' as the movie that made him retire, but come on. He flat out stopped after this one... The fact that this revelation presumably hit him while working on a completely run-of-the-mill comedy with [[EverybodyLovesRaymond Ray Romano]] is the funniest thing about the movie. Picture grumpy old Gene Hackman sitting silently on a set while someone adjusts a picture of his face [[FanDisservice over the crotch of a nude man]] (that is an actual scene from the movie). Ray Romano comes over, awkwardly displaying his teeth as in every single photo of him that exists, and says in his depressed [[Series/TheMuppetShow Kermit voice]]: 'Are you ready for the scene, Gene?' Hackman slowly turns his head. '[[ThousandYardStare No, Ray. I don't think I am]].' He walks off of the set, starts running, and never stops. They have to finish the movie with CGI. (That's how it went in my imagination, anyway.)
