"No. The thought of dating Barry – or Oliver for that matter – makes me want to lobotomize myself with a rusty spoon." Kara settled the matter instantly. Oliver sobered up at that, and he too shuddered. Kal tried to get his laughter under control, though there were still tears in his eyes.

"Since 1999 I've been carrying a blue pill in my pocket, holding onto it for the moment when I'd truly need it. The pill, I was told, would instantly erase the memory of any movie — but just the one movie, just the one time. I was tempted to take that pill after Freddy Got Fingered. I had the pill in hand as I walked out of every other Adam Sandler movie of the last decade. But I hung on to it, knowing something even worse was going to come my way one day. Midway through Movie 43, I knew the day had come. As the credits rolled with the inevitable blooper scenes of actors breaking character and inexplicably laughing when nothing funny is going on, I swallowed that pill, hoping to erase instantly all mental images of what had just transpired. It didn't work. The !&$@*! thing didn't work!"
Richard Roeper's review of Movie 43

"Oh, Shoe, you know that given my druthers I’d prefer not to contemplate the twisted chimeric anatomy of your bird-person characters, right? Especially when it comes to the naughty parts. I try not to think about those at all. I only contemplated the concept of bird-breasts obliquely, once, which didn’t stop TV Tropes from quoting me in the epigraph of the article on the subject."

"Kicking off this abysmal piece of television, Ianto’s idea of a good night in is to order in a pizza and share it with his half-converted Cyber-girlfriend. Until this point Ianto has been a nobody, a bland background smell, but here we get to find out about his sordid shenanigans. We were better off not knowing."

"What’s that? You’ve never heard of this? Are you sure? Certain you aren’t just like me and saw it years back and your brain short-circuited and said, 'No, we are not wasting any space in the hippocampus on this'? Well, then we’re all going to suffer through this together."
