In times of extremity, the people of Israel less often sought refuge in drink, or suicide, than any other race of Europe... The Jews hid their bravery under the cloak of submissiveness; their heroism in facing contempt surpasses that of saints.More [07/31/2005 12:07:00]

Lancelot: [voiceover] By 300 AD, the Roman Empire extended from Arabia to Britain. But they wanted more. More land. More peoples loyal and subservient to Rome. But no people so important as the powerful Sarmatians to the east. Thousands died on that field. And when the smoke cleared on the fourth day, the only Sarmatian soldiers left alive were members of the decimated but legendary cavalry. The Romans, impressed by their bravery and horsemanship, spared their lives. In exchange, these warriors were incorporated into the Roman military. Better they had died that day.
Young Lancelot: Father. They are here.
Lancelot: For the second part of the bargain they struck indebted not only themselves...
Lancelot's Father: The day has come.
Lancelot: ...but also their sons, and their sons, and so on, to serve the empire as knights. I was such a son.More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]

Violet Baudelaire: It's the letter! The letter that never came!
[reading]
Violet Baudelaire: 'Dearest children - since we've been abroad we have missed you all so much. Certain events have compelled us to extend our travels. One day, when you're older, you will learn all about the people we have befriended and the dangers we have faced. At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey. We hope to have you back in our arms soon, darlings, but in case this letter arrives before our return, know that we love you. It fills us with pride to know that no matter what happens in this life, that you three will take care of each other, with kindness and bravery and selflessness, as you always have. And remember one thing, my darlings, and never forget it: that no matter where we are, know that as long as you have each other, you have your family. And you are home.'More [07/15/2008 12:07:00]
Count Olaf: Looks like you could use a little assistance.
Klaus Baudelaire: You're gonna need assistance when we get back to town! Aunt Josephine's gonna tell everyone what happened!
Count Olaf: [sarcastically] And then I'll be arrested and sent to jail and you'll live happily ever after with a friendly guardian, spending your time inventing things and reading books and sharpening your little monkey teeth, and bravery and nobility will prevail at last, and this wicked world will slowly but surely become a place of cheerful harmony, and everybody will be singing and dancing and giggling like the littlest elf! A happy ending! Is that what you had mind?More [07/15/2008 12:07:00]
Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
I don't think you should look down on me, my friend. Aren't we in the same business? We both furnish amusement for the people.



Marcus:
I risk my life with the man I'm fighting. You buy and sell wretches to be slaughtered as a spectacle. I'm not proud of myself, but, by Jupiter, compared to you I'm a holy man.



Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
You will never be an old one. It isn't bravery that survives; it's brains.



Marcus:
Yes, it is well known that the rat lives longer than the lion, but who wants to be a rat? I wouldn't do your dirty work - not to save my life!

You will never forget what you saw me do here tonight.

Nikolas Cassidine:
I should turn myself in.



Emily Quartermaine:
The police were already looking for Helena. She threatened Alexis at knife point, and she's suspected of killing Mary and that nurse. You say that it was an accident and they'll be happy to believe you.

General Midwinter:
No, you don't understand the kind of love I have for this great country of ours. Love's not built that way, my way, any more. These days love is marriage, and the compensation is alimony; love these days is bravery under fire, and the compensation is medals; love is a donation of party funds, and the compensation is a political plum; love is some lady you left back in St. Louis, or a fast haul in the back seat of an automobile. My love is nothing like that. My love is this great company of brave young men, who are proud to make their country strong!

Colonel Hathi:
Espirit de Corps. That's the way I earned my commission in the Majarajah's Fifth Pachyderm Brigade. Back in '88 it was. Or... or was it?



Winifred:
Here it comes. The Victoria Cross bit again.



Colonel Hathi:
It was then I received the Victoria Cross for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. Ha ha! Those were the days. Discipline! Discipline was the thing! Builds character, and all that sort of thing, you know.

[to the unconscious Baloo] Baloo, get up. Oh, please get up.



Bagheera:
Mowgli, try to understand.



Mowgli:
Bagheera, what's the matter with him?



Bagheera:
You've got to be brave, like Baloo was.



Mowgli:
You... you don't mean... Oh, no. Baloo.



Bagheera:
Now, now. I know how you feel. But you must remember, Mowgli. Greater love hath no one than he who lays down his life for his friend.


[At this point, Baloo starts waking up, unbeknownst to Bagheera and Mowgli]



Bagheera:
Whenever great deeds are remembered in this jungle, one name will stand above all others: our friend, Baloo the bear.



Baloo:
[sniffing] He's cracking me up.



Bagheera:
The memory of Baloo's sacrifice and bravery will forever be engraved on our saddened hearts.



Baloo:
Beautiful.



Bagheera:
This spot where Baloo fell will always be a hallowed place in the jungle, for there lies one of nature's noblest creatures.



Baloo:
I wish my mother could have heard this.



Bagheera:
It's best we leave now. Come along, Man Cub.



Baloo:
Hey, don't stop now, Baggy. You're doing great! There's more, lots more!



Bagheera:
[Angry] Why, you big fraud! You-you-you four-flusher! I-I'm fed up!...

Alix Miller:
[Lee looks at the plaque and drops it worthlessly on his desk] Why can't you let them thank you Lee?



Lee Crompton:
What do you think i would be to them Alix, a romantic folk hero? Their very own gentle giant? Better they thank a pretty woman and a cute dog than a monster.



Alix Miller:
Lee...



Lee Crompton:
[turns angryly] I don't want your pity...

I do pity you... but not because how you look... but because of what you have let it do to you...

Steve:
Better heroes, huh? Listen, girls. My name is Steve. I'm a monster. I've been coming here for three days, causing all sorts of damage to your town. And what do I get? Two days of no-shows, and now this. A flag girl who does rope tricks, some rabbit, and Little Miss Darkness who's afraid of a little sun.



Buttercup:
Hey! Do you have any idea who you're talking to?



Bubbles:
We're superheroes!



Blossom:
Real ones!



Steve:
Yeah, well, that's great and all, but what am I supposed to tell the guys back on Monster Isle? You see, when a monster visits Townsville, he must fight the Powerpuff Girls. And if he can hold his own and make it back to Monster Isle alive, he's a hero. Now this new bit is just not gonna cut it. Sure, you didn't have a thirst for vengeance, stickers with your face on them, or souped-up vehicles, cause you didn't need them! See? Even if you take away the costumes, props, and angst, you still have all the bravery and courage it takes to save the day. So what do you say? Powerpuff Girls?



Blossom:
Let's get him, girls!



Steve:
Now that's better!

Mrs. Darling:
There are many different kinds of bravery. There's the bravery of thinking of others before one's self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor... nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.



Michael:
Where did he put them?



Mrs. Darling:
He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer... and he does. And that is why he is brave.
