Janis to Cady , Mean Girls

Swansea: How dare you judge me? Must I name the alarming list of your victims?

"All pumpkins are racists! The difference is that I admit it!"
The Grand Pumpkin, The Simpsons, "Treehouse of Horror XIX"

"World Nobles... Slaves... Human shops... Against the "purity" of these "upper classes", the villains of the world look positively humane in comparison. It's because the world's in the hands of scum like them that it's all screwed to hell... I mean, we're not the nicest of guys, but at least we're honest about it."
Eustass "Captain" Kid, One Piece

Glabrezu: Every life you take, for good or for ill, taints your spirit and brings you one step closer to me... And what I have become.
Player Character: There is a big difference between you and I.
Glabrezu: Yes... I do not try to *justify* my actions by hiding behind a moral or ethical façade. "Do as thou Will, shall be the whole of the law". Such is my credo.

Angel: People who don't care about anything will never understand the people who do.
Marcus Hamilton: Yeah, but we won't care.

"What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say: 'That's the bad guy.' So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy! There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!"
Tony Montana, to a restaurant full of high-class patrons, Scarface (1983)

“You and I are more alike than you’d suspect, I think,” he said. “We’re both arrogant assholes, yeah? Difference is, I admit it, I don’t dress it up and tell myself that I’m a bitch and that that’s a good thing.”
Regent to Shadow Stalker, Worm

“You’re really one to talk, Cherie. You’ve done what I’ve done, many times over.”

“I’m not pretending anything. I am what I am, I don’t put on a facade,” Cherish retorted.

You steal the blood of the living and you call us thieves. You hide from the eyes of men behind your precious Masquerade and you call us deceivers. If we are different from you, it is only because we have the will to accept, rather than deny, what we are.
Chavi Oraczko, Ravnos Anathema, Victorian Age: Vampire

"Darling, I'm evil. Let's not kid ourselves, but you. You're just something else entirely."

Hunter: The Vigil: Tooth and Nail

Quagmire to Brian, as part of a long-winded "The Reason You Suck" Speech, Family Guy

Tess: You're a thief and a liar.
Danny: I only lied about being a thief. But I don't do that anymore.
Tess: Steal?
Danny: Lie.
Tess: I'm with someone now who doesn't have to make that kind of distinction.
Danny: No, he's very clear on both.

You obey a specter of a fading illumination, and bend your knees to men whose tables crawl with pestilence and whores. I know: I have joined their revels, procured their slatterns and laughed to watch their seed tossed on demons' tongues. Such a rich joke, to sate the lusts of priests with succubae, don't you agree? And richer still to see one's tormentors bow to devil-slatted patriarchs, awaiting their instructions in the litany of god.
I have seen the wormwood you adore. Seen it with my own eyes. Drunk it for my wine. And I scorn it - and you - with full hilarity. When I soon reach Hell, Satan and I will share a laugh together as he dips my soul in pitch and lights it all ablaze. When my laughter turns to screams, those peals shall mock you even then, like the ghosts of fading bells. I, at least, am honest in my sins. They have made me a freer man.

''Steph! I've done some pretty bad things in my life. I admit it. I'm an asshole, but even I would not go this low."
Triple H to Stephanie Mcmahon during an episode of Monday Night RAW

A knight's a sword with a horse. The rest, the vows and the sacred oils and the lady's favors, they're silk ribbons tied round the sword. Maybe the sword's prettier with ribbons hanging off it, but it will kill you just as dead. Well, bugger your ribbons, and shove your swords up your arses. I'm the same as you. The only difference is, I don't lie about what I am. So kill me, but don't call me a murderer while you stand there telling each other that your shit don't stink. You hear me?
Sandor Clegane to the Brotherhood Without Banners, A Song of Ice and Fire book 3: A Storm of Swords

Connor: What is it the Templars truly seek?
Haytham: Order. Purpose. Direction. No more than that. It's your lot that means to confound with this nonsense talk of freedom. Time was, the Assassins professed a far more sensible goal, that of peace.
Connor: Freedom IS peace.
Haytham: Oh, no. It's an invitation to chaos. Only look at this little revolution your friends have started. I have stood before the Continental Congress and listened to them stamp and shout. All in the name of liberty. But it is just noise.
Connor: And this is why you favor Lee?
Haytham: He understands the needs of this would-be nation far better than the jobbernowls who profess to represent it.
Connor: It seems your tongue has tasted sour grapes. The people have made their choice – and it was Washington.
Haytham: The people chose nothing. It was done by a group of privileged cowards seeking only to enrich themselves. They convened in private and made a decision that would benefit THEM. Oh, they might have dressed it up with pretty words, but that does not make it true. The only difference, Connor – the ONLY difference between myself and those you aid – is that I do not feign affection.

Sue Barlow: You're a disgrace, Marshall Poole! You always have been!
Marshall Poole: I know it. That's just the way it is.

Lombard: [The recording] was pinpoint accurate about me.
Blore: [You killed] 21 men?!
Lombard: I always thought someone would blab. It's amazing how people get an attack of conscience when they're safely tucked away in their beds.
Miss Brent: Terrible man. You terrible, terrible man! It's people like you — men like you — that put our missionaries in such danger!
Lombard: [Disgust] Oh, your missionaries. With their religion and syphilis. I am not the only white killer in Africa, Miss Brent.
General Armstrong: Lombard, you sir are a bloody butcher!
Lombard: And I'm holding my hands up to it. So either I'm embellishing a story for shocking effect... or I'm the only one telling the truth in a room full of liars.

Harley: You heard Bats. No killin'.
Wonder Woman: You lecture me? How much blood is on your ledger, Quinn?
Harley: Oh, buckets full, honey. I was tryin' too hard to impress the wrong guy. Kinda like you with Superman.
