People named John and Mary never divorce. For better or for worse, in madness and in saneness, they seem bound together for eternity by their rudimentary nomenclature. They may loathe and despise one another, quarrel, weep, and commit mayhem, but they are not free to divorce. Tom, Dick, and Harry can go to Reno on a whim, but nothing short of death can separate John and Mary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Doc Ock: My Rosie's dead. My dream is dead.
Doc Ock: And these... monstrous things should be at the bottom of the river... along with me.
Doc Ock: Something... in my head. Something talking... The inhibitor chip!
[He turns to find the chip destroyed]
Doc Ock: Gone.
Doc Ock: [arms click and whir] Rebuild? No. Peter was right. I miscalculated.

Jessica: You don't appreciate the chaos and absurdity of life on this planet. You don't understand irony, or ethnicity, or eccentricity, or poetry, or the simple joy of being a regular at the diner on your block. I love that. You don't drink coffee or alcohol. You don't over eat. You don't cry when you're alone. You don't understand sarcasm. You plod through life in a neat, colorless, caffeine free, dairy free, conflict free way. I'm bold and angry and tortured and tremendous and I notice when someone has changed their hair part, or when someone is wearing two very distinctly different shades of black or when someone changes the natural temperment of their voice on the phone. I don't give out empty praise. I'm not complacent or well-adjusted. I can't spend fifteen minutes breathing and stretching and getting in touch with myself. I can't spend three minutes finishing an article. I check my answering machine nine times every day and I can't sleep at night because I feel that there is so much to do and fix and change in the world, and I wonder every day if I am making a difference and if I will ever express the greatness within me, or if I will remain forever paralyzed by muddled madness inside my head. I've wept on every birthday I've ever had because life is huge and fleeting and I hate certain people and certain shoes and I feel that life is terribly unfair and sometimes beautiful and wonderful and extraordinary but also numbing and horrifying and insurmountable and I hate myself a lot of the time. The rest of the time I adore myself and I adore my life in this city and in this world we live in. This huge and wondrous, bewildering, brilliant, horrible world.More [06/16/2008 12:06:00]
The Invisible Man:
[after being disturbed by a crowd]


[fiercely]



The Invisible Man:
All right, you fools. You've brought it on yourselves! Everything would have come right if you'd only left me alone. You've driven me near madness with your peering through the keyholes and gaping through the curtains. And now you'll suffer for it!


[crowd gets nervous]



The Invisible Man:
[very angry] You're crazy to know who I am, aren't you? All right! I'll show you!

High Lama:
It is the entire meaning and purpose of Shangri-La. It came to me in a vision, long, long ago. I saw all the nations strengthening, not in wisdom, but in the vulgar passions and the will to destroy. I saw the machine power multiplying, until a single weaponed man might match a whole army. I foresaw a time when man, exalting in the technique of murder, would rage so hotly over the world, that every book, every treasure, would be doomed to destruction. This vision was so vivid and so moving, that I determined to gather together all things of beauty and of culture that I could, and preserve them here, against the doom toward which the world is rushing. Look at the world today. Is there anything more pitiful? What madness there is! What blindness! What unintelligent leadership! A scurrying mass of bewildered humanity, crashing headlong against each other, propelled by an orgy of greed and brutality. A time must come my friend, when this orgy will spend itself. When brutality and the lust for power must perish by its own sword. Against that time, is why I avoided death, and am here. And why you were brought here. For when that day comes, the world must begin to look for a new life. And it is our hope that they may find it here. For here, we shall be with their books and their music, and a way of life based on one simple rule: Be Kind! When that day comes, it is our hope that the brotherly love of Shangri-La will spread throughout the world. Yes, my son; When the strong have devoured each other, the Christian ethic may at last be fulfilled and the meek shall inherit the earth.

Pendlebury:
Well, you might as well know. I was lying. I am a thief. It was madness to attempt it. We weren't cut out for crime, either of us.



Policeman:
We?



Pendlebury:
My partner and I.



Sidewalk Vendor:
Your partner? Here, if you're working with the fence who's got them other pictures...



Policeman:
Shh! Carry on.



Pendlebury:
Oh I make no excuses. All my life it's been my ambition to surround myself with rare and beautiful things. Suddenly faced with this golden opportunity...



Sidewalk Vendor:
Here, you call that picture of mine rare and beautiful?



Pendlebury:
Since you will keep on interrupting me, you ought to know it's a charming example of an early Rochet, while he was still under the influence of Corot.

Oh yeah? How much is it worth?



Pendlebury:

Connor Bishop:
Why am I the bad guy when Nikolas just confessed to throwing an old lady off a cliff?



Lucky Spencer:
Helena was a menacing witch who deserved what she got.



Connor Bishop:
Do you think a jury will see it that way?



Lucky Spencer:
And Nikolas is going to face charges, and he'll be exonerated. But you won't.



Connor Bishop:
We'll see about that. Won't we?



Emily Quartermaine:
You used my compassion against me and you pretended to have feelings for me, and every phony word was a calculated move for you to get revenge on Nikolas for something he didn't do!



Connor Bishop:
He destroyed Mary and me!



Emily Quartermaine:
No, Mary destroyed herself! Nikolas was a victim of her madness like everyone else. You know what? You are so desperate for someone to blame for Mary's death because you can't face the fact that you started it all.



Connor Bishop:
I'd stop if I were you.



Emily Quartermaine:
You know, you let Mary think that you were dead so that you could sneak home to her? You drove Mary crazy.



Connor Bishop:
Shut up. Shut up.



Emily Quartermaine:
And now the blood of those two innocent kids she killed is on your hands!



Connor Bishop:
Shut up!

Sister Alma:
Is it really important not to lie, to speak so that everything rings true? Can one live without lying and quibbling and making excuses? Isn't it better to be lazy and lax and deceitful? Perhaps you even improve by staying as you are. (No response) My words mean nothing to you. People like you can't be reached. I wonder whether your madness isn't the worst kind. You act healthy, act it so well that everyone believes you--everyone except me, because I know how rotten you are.

Jessica:
I sit here and I can't believe that it happened. And yet I have to believe it. Dreams or nightmares? Madness or sanity? I don't know which is which.

Miguel de Cervantes:
I've been a soldier and a slave. I've seen my comrades fall in battle or die more slowly under the lash in Africa. I've held them in my arms at the final moment. These were men who saw life as it is, yet they died despairing. No glory, no brave last words, only their eyes, filled with confusion, questioning "Why?" I don't think they were wondering why they were dying, but why they had ever lived. When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams - -this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all - -to see life as it is and not as it should be.

Saul Enderby:
Well, why doesn't he dig up his treasure? Put it somewhere else and cover his traces? The shit's in the fan, he knows that, Kirov's confessed!



George Smiley:
Perhaps the treasure refuses to be moved. Perhaps Karla's options have run out.



Saul Enderby:
It's daylight madness to leave that Swiss bank account intact!



George Smiley:
It was daylight madness to use a fool like Kirov. It was madness to approach Ostrakova, and madness to believe that by killing three people he could stop the leak.

Shirotsugh Lhadatt:
Can anyone hear me? I'm the first man in space. If you look up, well, maybe you'll see it. Or at least please listen. We've left the oceans and climbed above the mountains. I'm flying. We've found the untouched realm of God. You have to look now it's your only chance. Nothing is here yet, not even air or water to ruin. Soon the next man will follow to touch it, and another, and in all the rush we may again destroy it. Maybe our killing comes from the madness of being confined? Please listen! There's no more reason to kill because we don't have any more borders now! Can anyone hear me? If you can hear me, then pray. The humblest of all things, the most noble. Pray for each step you take. Make a path that's safe so those who follow shall never stumble. Dear God, please give us your mercy. Mercy for we are lost. Forgive the irresponsible, the trivial men who beg you from the dark for the forgiveness of your light.

Narrator:
This is a strange story - a story unlike anything you have ever heard. It is a story of madness - of cruel and unforgettable death - fantastic, unreal and horrible! Through the ages, man has beheld the fear of death. From the moment life enters the human body until the last earthly flicker of his soul, fear holds him in its icy grip - the hopes, the future; yes, his very life. There have been many tales of fear - legends of Frankenstein, of Dracula, of monsters and werewolves. But in all history, no one person has seen or witnessed more of the many strange deaths of humans than a man we shall call - Doctor Terror!

Napoléon:
[regarding his coronation as Emperor] I intend to crown myself.



Pope Pius VII:
Then why am I here?



Napoléon:
To bless my reign.



Pope Pius VII:
Now, who exactly are you asking to bless your reign, Sire? Almighty God? Or his humble deputy on Earth, the Pope?



Napoléon:
Humble? Is that the word you use to describe the thunder of organ music, clouds of incense, altars full of flowers, robes trimmed with gold?



Pope Pius VII:
You confuse God with religion.



Napoléon:
On the contrary, I separate them. On the one hand, a theory: God. On the other, a certitude: religion. It gives human society a framework. People would have no reference points without religion, we saw the results of that, when during the Revolution the churches were looted and the priests guillotined. The country toppled into anarchy, chaos, and madness of the Reign of Terror. We can do without God, but not without religion.



Pope Pius VII:
Do without God? Can you live without faith in the immortality of your soul? Without belief in the everlasting life?



Napoléon:
If you have ever been in a battlefield, you would not believe in God, either.



Pope Pius VII:
But I spend all my days and all my nights on a battlefield, Sire! The whole world is a battlefield! And every man who suffers is a terrible defeat for me. Place the crown on your own brow if that is what you wish. I will pray it does not become too heavy for you to bear.



Napoléon:
Have you ever regretted being Pope?



Pope Pius VII:
It terrifies me, Sire. Every day that God gives.

Dr. Edward Roivas:
And so it comes to pass... Of the three Ancients, there is nothing... The mighty Chattur'gha has obliterated the insanity of Xel'lotath. The madness of Xel'lotath has overcome the power of Ulyaoth. The boundless Ulyaoth has decimated the power of Chattur'gha. All at once, separate and simultaneous, for the Universe is made of many timestreams, many possibilites, all in harmonious sychronicity. Only Mantorok remains, slowly dying. Mantorok... Keeper... Overseer... Warden of Ancients... Chaos, an entity trapped between the veils of reality and the enchanted stakes that impale its flesh. Unable to rally its Guardians, it could rely only on its subtle manipulations of the Roivas family to destroy its enemies. Knowing the nature of the Ancients, it used its pawns to play them against each other, resultying in their mutual annihilation... Now it will languish forever, festering in its tomb... plotting...
