->I've watched dozens of tutorials on how to escape this kind of situation, tied to a chair. However, none of them were necessary... Because [[spoiler:Frankie]] is stupid as fuck, and he didn't remove my gloves, their bracelets made it easy.

->'''Valentine''': You know what this is like? It's like those old movies we both love. Now, I'm going to tell you my whole plan, and then I'm going to come up with some absurd and convoluted way to kill you, and you'll find an equally convoluted way to escape.\\
'''Harry Hart''': Sounds good to me.\\

->Villains, they always want to talk you to death.

->I've really got to learn to just do the damage and ''get out'' of town. It's the [[IShallTauntYou stay-and-gloat]] that gets me every time.

->The villain wants to kill the hero. He has him cornered at gunpoint. All he has to do is pull the trigger. But he always talks first. He [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech explains the hero's mistakes to him]]. [[EvilGloating Jeers]]. [[EvilLaugh Laughs]]. And gives the hero time to think his way out of the situation, or be [[TheCavalry rescued by his buddies]]. Cf. most Film/JamesBond movies.

->'''Chris''': Riddler also looks at Batman and goes “Whyyyy can’t I killlll youuuuuuu?” And if I had to guess, I’d say it probably has something to do with not shooting him in the head when he had the chance about 20 minutes ago.\\
'''David''': I wish I could have shot this movie in the head 20 minutes ago.

->Only The Master is such a twat that he would record a message for the entire universe relaying his demands before his plans have even come to fruition.

->That quote up at the top of my review is from [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles a children's movie]] that more thoroughly understood what villainy is than ''Smallville'' seems capable of...Good writing ensures that characters aren't put in situations where they have to behave contrary to their nature just to further plot. Lois should be dead ([[DistressBall twice this episode]]) but she isn't because she can't be. The solution? Don't put Lois in a situation where the only logical outcome is death.

->''"[[JustBetweenYouAndMe Tell me the whole plot]]\\
There is no way you can get caught\\
[[JamesBondage You seem to tie such a good knot]]\\
Just leave me here so I can rot\\
Forget the fact we ever fought\\
[[WhyDontYouJustShootHim I'm thankful I haven't be shot]]"''

->Anyway, it's time to kill off the Jedi. Oh, good. How do they go about it? Well, they start pumping an obvious deadly white gas into the room; this alerts them to danger. Well actually, blowing up their ship does. I guess they should've pumped in the gas first, and once the Jedi were dead, ''then'' blown the ship up? ...Just [[GetOut tell 'em to leave!]] That you don't wanna negotiate! And then, when their ship flies out of your space dock, '''''SHOOT IT WITH LASERS.'''''\\\
Also, we need to consider the fact that killing two Jedis that were sent there as peaceful ambassadors would be a pretty heinous crime in the eyes of the Galactic Senate, the organization that runs everything (including space taxes). I mean, you could just [[TheCoronerDothProtestTooMuch claim they never got there]]. But now you've got [[ImplausibleDeniability the burned wreckage of their ship inside of your horribly-burned docking bay.]]

->[[Creator/DonaldPleasance Pleasance]] is, in many respects, the most cliché Bond bad guy ever. He has the most lovely (and extravagant) lair that Ken Adams ever designed. He has a pool of piranha in his hidden volcano lair. He has the technology to kidnap space ships… and ''[[CutLexLuthorACheck couldn’t be bothered making a legitimate fortune off it]]''. He has Bond at his mercy repeatedly, and… [[BlofeldPloy shoots other random characters instead]] [...] he literally looks like a baby, a petulant child that Bond needs to sort out. Kingsley Amis argued that the best of Fleming’s villains were dark father figures, but I think the films also supported the idea that they were [[PsychopathicManchild malicious overgrown children]].
