Kyohei: You sure? Don't forget there's only eight.
Gunzou: If we don't make it through this...we won't live long enough to regret using them.
Kyohei: Yeah, well...good point.
Gunzou: Remember that special souvenir we took from the Hyuga? Time to use it.
Iori: What?! Are you serious?! We haven't even confirmed that it works outside Iona's simulations!
Gunzou: I'm aware of that. Thanks, Iori.
Iori: Ugh, I know that look. It means there's no point arguing.
Kyohei: I tell ya, man. Our captain don't look it...but the guy knows when to roll the dice.
Elder Kai: Going Super Saiyan strains his body, too, and I'm sure that so-called "Super Saiyan Blue" is exponentially worse! Adding Kaioken on top of that? It's hard to imagine the damage he's doing to himself. No wonder he didn't use it earlier; he was saving it as a last resort!
Goku: I know it's risky, but there's a big payoff, too! Super Saiyan Blue is about power through extreme control! Combining that with the calming focus of the Kaioken and there's no telling how high I can go!
Major: Cruise missiles? On moving targets? Sir, half the city could be destroyed.
General: Yes, major, but by morning, half the city will be destroyed anyway.
Iron Man: It scares me, too, Robert. Every day I choose between courses of action that could affect millions, even billions of lives. With stakes that high, how dare I decide? But at this point, doing nothing is a decision in and of itself. No matter what you do or don't do, billions could die. You have the responsibility, whether you want it or not. I know you're not ready to hear this, Robert. No sane person ever really is. But it's time to play God.
Supergirl: Yes. Something down there's destroying the Moon. Everyone here's about to die... unless you help them. What's the problem, Kal?
Superman: I... I don't want to make things worse.
Supergirl: I don't see how that's remotely possible...
Fury: Nah. If we do our job right, we'll never be in a position of having to call her.
Pinkie Pie: Yes Twilight?
Twilight Sparkle: You know all those things I normally ask you not to do? Do them.
Giles: I do believe I know. Im not quite sure Im comfortable with it. At all.
Supergirl: (nodding) These are our two last lines of defense. This is a Phantom Zone ray. Just worry about the white button. If you touch that, whatever you point this at will be instantly banished to the Zone. This one Ive set to burn out its power element just two minutes after activation. That should prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. If all else fails, use this on Zol-Am. I dont want him back in the Zone. I dont know if he can infect other inmates there with vampirism, and I dont want to find out. If I dont have to.
Buffy: Yeah. One vamp with powers to change the course of mighty graveyards is all we need for now. And whats in this little box?
Supergirl: (grasping her wrist) Dont.
Giles: I know what is in there. Kryptonite.
Buffy: Kryptonite? Youre serious?
Supergirl: What do you think? If even the Zone projector fails, you have to use this against Zol-Am. It must be in close proximity to him for several minutes to kill him. If it gets knocked too far away, or he manages to fly off, or lead gets between it and him... he can recover. Also, dont expect him to be too pleased.
Buffy: We cant use that against him while youre around.
Supergirl: Buffy. Youll only use this as a last resort. But if that happens, you will use it whatever the circumstances.
Supergirl: Whatever the circumstances. Am I clear?
Natasha Romanov: I've seen worse.
Natasha: No, we could... use a little worse.
Bruce Banner: Tony, listen to me: Thor's gone. Thanos is coming. It doesn't matter who you're talking to or not.
Alfred Pennyworth: You crossed the line first, sir. You squeezed them, you hammered them to the point of desperation. And in their desperation they turned to a man they didn't fully understand.
Alfred Pennyworth: Yes.
Bruce Wayne: How?
Alfred Pennyworth: We burned the forest down.
Lucius Fox: Beautiful... unethical... dangerous. You've turned every cellphone in Gotham into a microphone.
Batman: And a high-frequency generator-receiver.
Lucius Fox: You took my sonar concept and applied it to every phone in the city. With half the city feeding you sonar, you can image all of Gotham. This is wrong.
Batman: I've got to find this man, Lucius.
Lucius Fox: At what cost?
Gordon: There is no world left to be destroyed.
Serizawa: The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control... and not the other way around. Let them fight.
El Diablo: What if I lose control?
Deadshot: Then maybe we'll have a chance.
Doughty's voice was level, quite serious. "We bear any burdens in defense of freedom."
"Not the best of your American notions, perhaps. Tsyganov speared a chunk of fish from the can with a three-tined fork. "To deliberately contact an utterly alien entity from the abyss between universes... an ultradimensional demigod whose very geometry is, as it were, an affront to sanity... that Creature of nameless eons and inconceivable dimensions..." Tsyganov patted his bearded lips with a napkin. "That hideous Radiance that bubbles and blasphemes at the center of all infinity-"
"You're being sentimental," Doughty said. "We must recall the historical circumstances in which the decision was made to develop the Azathoth Bomb. Giant Japanese Majins and Gojiras crashing through Asia. Vast squadrons of Nazi juggernauts blitzkrieging Europe... and their undersea leviathans preying on shipping..."
Michael Garibldi: Someone like that would be the telepathic equivalent of a thermonuclear device. A doomsday weapon.
Lyta Alexander (eyes glowing): Pleased to meet you, Mr. Garibaldi.
Captain Jack Harkness: If it's what I think you're thinking, you'd better stop thinking it, right now. Way too big a risk.
Yaz: How big a risk?
Captain Jack Harkness: Planet-threatening!
The Doctor: Got any better ideas? 'Cause now is your moment. I'm all ears.
[Jack goes silent]
The Doctor: Exactly.

Admiral Hackett: To be honest, the thing scares the hell out of me. But the Reapers have forced our hand.
Clive: I've already told you, Stephen, I'm not going to order an air strike-
Stephen: You have to! Now it knows we're onto it, it's going to keep on spreading as fast as it can.
Clive: The quarantine and blackout will hold it in check; they've cut all the phones out of the valley, so it's only you communicating out now-
Stephen: Weren't you listening? It's figured out ways around it - radio waves, something! All the lines are cut but the phones are working anyway! You've done all the right things, but it's not enough: you've got to stop it before it adapts again.
Clive: Stephen... my... my family... m-my wife and kids...
Stephen: You know perfectly well what you've got to do.
Clive: I can't do it. Don't ask me to do it... you're asking me to sign their death warrant - my own family!
Stephen: Dammit, don't you think I'm aware of that? I'll still be here when you drop the fucking stuff! Don't you lecture me about sacrifice, you spineless little shit! If you're so full of ideas, you come here and try dealing with it! (Beat) Tell them the time when we had a choice is over. Tell them to do it. You've got to do it, now.

Floyd: Um, Carmen? You said that me casting spells was a bad idea!
Carmen: It is, but you two being eaten is marginally worse.
So now that they got Ghidorah taken care of, the only problem is getting rid of Godzilla too, and the only thing that can stop him is Ghidorah so hey, it's like they fucked themselves!
THE PROBLEM IS REVERSED!"''
Phir Sē: What chances would you give this gamble?
Weaver: One in three?
Phir Sē: One in three. That is... perhaps unfair. No matter. If I'm wrong, we lose this city. If I'm right, we kill Behemoth. I would take those odds, Weaver. I would take them, I would watch this city be wiped from the earth, knowing that people I am fond of would die. I live in a civilian guise most days, waiting until I have a task from those more powerful than I. I would perhaps be killing the butcher I talk to every day when I walk to the store for food. I would kill the widow who lives next door to me, her child, if they have not evacuated. I have mentioned my daughter, much like you in her abundance of faith in people. I will take this gamble and perhaps kill those people in the process. I will kill those people who can make me smile and feel more human than I am, I will grieve their deaths, and then I will take that gamble again. Because one city, however grand, is worth that chance.
Alucard: (long exhalation) When hope is gone, undo this lock... and send me forth, on a moonlit walk... Release Restraint Level... Zero.
Heinkel: From the "Don't Fuck With This" armory?!
Heinkel: Where we keep the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Ark of the Covenant, and the actual Body of Christ?!
Reporter: This makes it Japan's first military action since World War II. When asked for justification, the Prime Minister referenced the terminology of Article 76.
Decker:: He then pointed out the window and said "giant fucking monster destroying the country!"
Still the yellow cat wouldn't leave his home!
Steps were needed to remove the little curse.
The old man knew it couldn't get any worse.
Speedy: Yeah. But you said-
Green Arrow: This is an emergency!
Optimus Prime: I'm hoping we won't have to!
