Go To

Love is a simple thing,
Love is a poison ring,
Shiny as a lizard's tongue,
Quiet as a man who's hung,
Love is so great and grand,
Soft as a mummy's hand,
Love is the raven's croak,
Sweet as the poison oak,
Brighter than a coffin nail,
Gay as a widow's wail.
Love makes an old heart stop.
Love is the mating call,
When you've sealed him in the wall,
Love is a simple thing.
— "Love is a Simple Thing," Charles Addams homage verse

"Why is it every conversation you people have has the word corpse in it?"
Cordelia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ("Some Assembly Required")

"I've seen women and children trampled on to get into lifeboats! And then they're all safe and all BORED again! All BORED!! For life to be exciting, you'd have to have a shipwreck every day!"
Harry, Adventure (1945)

I'm afraid I don't see things like you do. I mean it: I'm afraid. What if the things I find beautiful drive you mad? What if they hollow you out like clever little squirrels getting nuts for the winter, except the nuts are your eyes, and winter is, I don't know, maybe the Rapture or something? And I'm just smiling while your face gets ripped apart because I think it's beautiful? These things worry me sometimes, when I'm not looking at the night sky. So I spend a lot of time looking at the night sky, and not looking at your face and thinking about squirrels.

Sherlock: Put those back!
Sgt Donovan: They were in the microwave.
I like nightmares waking up in a cold cold sweat
I like nightmares making hair stand up on my neck
My heart is pumping
I'm runnin' for my life
I'm scared to death and yet...
— "I Like Nightmares", from Spooky Music

"Mainly, I have clients, private collectors who are into what I do, and I take requests. They ask for some specific image, and I create it. Images you can't get with just a camera, but that they carry around in their heads. They bring me their sick shit, and I make it visible."
"Perverts?" I asked.
"Yeah. Some of them, sure. But not all. Some of them are just. . . Some of them just need to see with their eyes these images that they've already seen in their mind's eye. Sometimes, it seems like I'm a sort of therapist, or midwife. They might want a photorealistic unicorn, or a woman might want a photo of herself, naked, riding a unicorn, or -"
"A photo of herself fucking that unicorn," I said.
"Pretty much," she nodded.
— from The Red Tree by Caitlin Kiernan

"I can't stop thinking about a girl who literally scares me!"

"I love all things horrifying... It's like a disease."
Hex Maniac Tasha, Pokémon Emerald

Strong Sad: Uh, excardon me, but none of that stuff is cool, Strong Bad. You basically described that creep Señor Cardgage that lived down the street from us when we were little.
Strong Bad: What?! You didn't think Senor[sic]   Cardgage was cool?
Strong Sad: No! He was extremely sketchy and gave me nightmares!
Strong Bad: And...what's not cool about giving you nightmares?

Winslow: But don't you worry that there will come a time when you'll see one pooping catgirl too many and lose all hope for humanity?

Winslow: I think you just like looking at pooping catgirls.
Pintsize: Michelangelo liked looking at nude men, and look what came of that.

Girl: I sure am! (opens mouth to reveal a Xenomorph-like second mouth)
Brad: ... (gets a smug grin on his face) Jackpot.
