Go To

Gollum: Shut up!
Bilbo: I didn't say anything.
Gollum: I wasn't talking to you.

Well, me, it's nice talking to myself
A credit to dementia
Someday you too will know my pain
And smile its black-toothed grin
If the war inside my head
Won't take a day off I'll be dead
My icy fingers claw your back
Here I go again!
Megadeth, "Sweating Bullets"

"I'm not really here" she said quickly with a slight smile as the observation passed through his mind. "And no, you are not loosing your grip on reality" she assured him.
"After everything that's happened, I am not so sure" he replied somewhat sarcastically.
"Understandable" she nodded. "If it helps, think of me… as an echo of the events, a shadow without form, nothing more then a memory in your mind".
"Well uh… you're a rather… talkative memory" he replied, then stopped. Oh God, am I talking to myself now he asked in despair…

Stupid. Stupid stupid stupid stupid.
Shut up, mind. Do your job. Find me a way out of this.

Ghost Jean: And I don't understand why you're wearing headphones right now.[...]

Kermit: I didn't promise anybody anything. What do I know about Hollywood anyway? Just the dreams I got from sitting through too many double features.
Kermit: So why did you leave the swamp in the first place?
Kermit: 'Cause some agent fella said I had talent. Hmph, he probably says that to everybody.
Kermit: On the other hand, if you hadn't left the swamp, you'd be feeling pretty miserable anyhow.
Kermit: Yeah, but then it would just be me feeling miserable. Now, I got a lady pig, I got a bear, and a chicken, a dog, and a thing, whatever Gonzo is. He's a little like a turkey.
Kermit: Hmm, yeah. A little like a turkey, but not much.
Kermit: No, I guess not. Anyhow, I brought 'em out here into the middle of nowhere. It's all my fault.
Kermit: Still, whether you promised them something or not, you gotta remember... they wanted to come.
Kermit: But that's because they believed in me.
Kermit: No, they believed in the dream.
Kermit: Well, so do I, but...
Kermit: You do?
Kermit: Yeah, of course I do.
Kermit: Well, then...?
Kermit: Well, then... I guess I was wrong when I said I never promised anyone. I promised me.
