Older Watson: [epilogue] As I watched Holmes settle into his seat, a sudden feeling came over me - that I would most certainly be seeing him again. So ended my first adventure with Mister Sherlock Holmes. As I watched his carriage disappear into the distance, I realised that I had forgotten to thank him. He had taken a weak, frightened boy and made him into a courageous, strong man. My heart soared. I was filled with confidence. I was ready for whatever mystery or danger lay ahead.

John McClane: Yeah, I'm still here. Unless you wanna open the front door for me.
Hans Gruber: Uh, no I'm afraid not. But you have me at a loss. You know my name but who are you? Just another American who saw too many movies as a child? Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John Wayne? Rambo? Marshal Dillon?

Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: In the Roman civil war, Julius Caesar knew he had to march on Rome, which no legion was permitted to do. Marcus Lucanus left us a chronicle of what happened. "How swiftly Caesar had surmounted the mighty alps and in his mind conceived immense upheavals, coming war. When he reached the water of the little Rubicon, clearly to the leader through the murky night appeared a mighty image of his country in distress, grief in her face, her white hair streaming from her tower-crowned head, with tresses torn and shoulders bare, she stood before him and sighing said, "Where further do you march? Where do you take my standards warriors? If lawfully you come, if as citizens, this far only is allowed." Then trembling struck the leader's limbs, his hair grew stiff and weakness checked his progress, holding his feet at the rivers edge. At last he speaks, "Oh Thunderer, surveying Rome's walls from the Tarpeian Rock. Oh Phrygian house gods of Iulus, Clan and Mystery of Quirinus who was carried off to heaven, Oh Jupiter of Latium seated in lofty Alda and Hearths of Vesta, Oh Rome, equal to the highest deity, favor my plans! Not with impious weapons do I pursue you. Here am I, Caesar, conqueror of land and sea, your own soldier, everywhere, now too, if I am permitted. The man who makes me your enemy, it is he who be the guilty one." Then he broke the barriers of war and through the swollen river swiftly took his standards. And Caesar crossed the flood and reached the opposite bank. From Hesperia's Forbidden Fields he took his stand and said, "Here I abandoned peace and desecrated law; fortune it is you I follow. Farewell to treaties. From now on war is our judge!" Hail Caesar! We who are about to die salute you!More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
Rob: Top five things I miss about Laura. One; sense of humor. Very dry, but it can also be warm and forgiving. And she's got one of the best all time laughs in the history of all time laughs, she laughs with her entire body. Two; she's got character. Or at least she had character before the Ian nightmare. She's loyal and honest, and she doesn't even take it out on people when she's having a bad day. That's character.
[holds up three fingers]
Rob: Three;
[long pause, hesitantly]
Rob: I miss her smell, and the way she tastes. It's a mystery of human chemistry and I don't understand it, some people, as far as their senses are concerned, just feel like home.
[shakes his head, recollecting, then looks back and lip synchs 'four' while holds up four fingers]
Rob: I really dig how she walks around. It's like she doesn't care how she looks or what she projects and it's not that she doesn't care it's just, she's not affected I guess, and that gives her grace. And five; she does this thing in bed when she can't get to sleep, she kinda half moans and then rubs her feet together an equal number of times... it just kills me. Believe me, I mean, I could do a top five things about her that drive me crazy but it's just your garden variety women you know, schizo stuff and that's the kind of thing that got me here.More [03/12/2008 12:03:00]

Lemony Snicket: Dear reader, there are people in the world who know no misery and woe. And they take comfort in cheerful films about twittering birds and giggling elves. There are people who know that there's always a mystery to be solved. And they take comfort in researching and writing down any important evidence. But this story is not about such people. This story is about the Baudelaires. And they are the sort of people who know that there's always something. Something to invent, something to read, something to bite, and something to do, to make a sanctuary, no matter how small. And for this reason, I am happy to say, the Baudelaires were very fortunate indeed.More [07/15/2008 12:07:00]

Grazia:
Who are you?



Death:
Sirki.



Grazia:
I don't mean that. You seem to come from a distant place. When I'm with you, I see depths in your eyes that are like the worlds I visit in sleep. And beneath your words is a sound I've heard in dreams. When you leave me, the light goes from the sky. You're like the mystery that's just beyond sight and sound. Always just beyond my reach. Something that draws and... frightens.

Edgar Bergen:
This was the biggest adventure of their lives. Forgotten was their hunger, forgotten was their fear. It took courage to scale these massive steps, to make this journey into the unknown. But these stout-hearted lads never faltered. Three minds but with a single thought: What mystery lurked within those cold, forbidding walls? What strange spell hovered over this gloomy place?

Ted Knowles, Jockey:
Say, I think your niece is swell.



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
Well, you can't start an argument with me that way, me boy.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
I just wanted to know if it'd be okay by you if I dated her.



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
And if it shouldn't be okay by me, I'm thinking you'd start an argument.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
Well, I thought maybe you had it in for jocks, too. Darned if I don't think I'd stand a better chance with her if I were a stable boy. She's a mystery, that Margaret is. You know, Mr. O'Hara, maybe you could put in a good word for me.



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
Well, now, being the kind of man you are, Ted, I've an idea you can solve that mystery without my help. However, I might be willing to put in a word here and there if you do me a bit of a favor in return.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
Anything you say.



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
I'll not say much. Just buy that colt there, Seabiscuit.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
Me, buy that little squirt? What for?



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
I like him.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
But he hasn't got a chance. George doesn't think so either, or he wouldn't be shipping him.



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
I think you're both mistaken.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
Well, if you're so sure, why don't you buy him yourself?



Shawn O'Hara, Seabiscuit's Trainer:
No, no. So long as I train for other people, I'll never race one of me own. I might be tempted to give him special consideration.



Ted Knowles, Jockey:
I feel the same way myself.

Jack Belicec:
Stop trying to rationalize everything, will ya? Let's face it, we have a mystery on our hands!



Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman:
Sure you have. A real one! Whose body was it, and where is it now? A completely normal mystery. Whatever it is, it's well within the bounds of human experience, and I don't think you ought to make any more of it.



Dr. Miles J. Bennell:
Look, I wouldn't if I hadn't looked in Becky's cellar! How do you explain away the body I saw there?



Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman:
I don't think you saw one there.



Dr. Miles J. Bennell:
You don't think I saw one here, either?



Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman:
I know you did because three others saw it too.



Dr. Miles J. Bennell:
But I dreamed up the second one?



Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman:
Doctors can have hallucinations too.
