"Do you know the thing I hate most in all the world? Turtles! Now, I look in the mirror, all I see is you! And I hate you even more!"
Brand-new mutant turtle Hun, Turtles Forever

Donna: They...they turned him...into an Ood.
Doctor: Yup.
Donna:...He's an Ood.
Doctor: I noticed.
Donna: It's weird, but...being with you, I can't tell what's right and what's wrong anymore!
Doctor: It's better that way. People who know for certain tend to be like Mr Halpen.
Doctor Who, "Planet of the Ood"

You were wonderful - everyone told you so. Thus, you really didn't have much time or use for people who didn't have anything you wanted. Like that disgusting bum who approached you in the subway station and asked you for change. You dismissed him from your presence with a contemptuous curse.

Cleopatra, Vampire: The Masquerade - Clanbook: Nosferatu

Old Delvin Tremblay found himself with an extra pair of arms and webbed fingers, and his skin became slick and warted like that of a frog. Sins from past and present rose to the surface as the stains on souls manifested themselves. All the circus folk suffered deformities; none were left unchanged. To their horror, they had become the freaks they had destroyed.

The Doctor: Ah, I'm afraid you won't be able to time travel out of here. You're no longer Elder Gods; you're human beings.
"Peggy": Human beings?!
"Albert: These mortal bodies we inhabit - who are they?
The Doctor: A delightful couple I met called Albert and Peggy Marsden. Well I mean, not the real Albert and Peggy - the real Albert and Peggy are safe and sound in a version of history where the nuclear war never took place. No, you're looking out through the eyes of the alternative Albert and Peggy from the timeline you created.
"Albert": But why?
