"Guys, I did not have a particularly fun time socially for a lot of high school. At one point I got voted out of my lunch table."

"Jessie's demons manifest in a fantasy sequence, where she repels a line of suitors by repeatedly growing so tall that her head eventually stretches out of frame. When she first appeared looking downcast on a set of scales, I assumed it was leading to an eating-disorder angle. I'd forgotten about that weird schoolyard mentality where girls are bullied for being tall, an action which becomes ludicrous in adulthood. “Haha, you're a woman with long legs! Freak! And look at this dumb guy, with his stupid big penis!”"
Stuart Millard on Saved by the Bell, So Excited, So Scared

Yes, racist. I'm serious. The other reindeer laughed at him. Then, out of the blue, they need him. He's as good as a fog light or whatever.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose...
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows...

Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games...

And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us

How funny I was too young for so many things
Yet you thought I'd cope with being told I'm ugly
Over and over I'd read it, believe it
Said no to the shrink, I can fix me, I think
I've got friends in my head, they've got me on the mend
I am pretty in my mirror, easy to pretend
17 and thought that I'd won the jackpot
Seems I didn't read between the lines of this one
I can't think why I could of made you so, so angry
Your bullets I don't feel them, come and fire at me.
Sticks and Stones, Nicola Roberts

"Do you know what it feels like, Baki-san, to be judged by the your Village, your home. To be feared? To not know a mother's touch or a father's encouragement? Do you know how it feels when people come after you, try to kill you because of the fact that you exist? To feel the glares on your back, not knowing why? To feel so goddamn alone? Do you? Don't answer that, it was rhetorical. But that's what all Jinchuuriki feel like. (...) Though this kid may not look it, he's hurting. So much. Too much. The pain, it's unbearable, especially if you don't have someone to share it with. He's supposed to protect the Village, but the very same Village wants him dead."
Naruto talking about Gaara, ''A Wrinkle in Time

Donkey: Hey, what's your problem, Shrek? What you got against the whole world anyway?
