The stars which shone over Babylon and the stable in Bethlehem still shine as brightly over the Empire State Building and your front yard today. They perform their cycles with the same mathematical precision, and they will continue to affect each thing on earth, including man, as long as the earth exists.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The aim of life is some way of living, as flexible and gentle as human nature; so that ambition may stoop to kindness, and philosophy to condor and humor. Neither prosperity nor empire nor heaven can be worth winning at the price of a virulent temper, bloody hands, an anguished spirit, and a vain hatred of the rest of the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising up a people of customers, may at first sight appear a project fit only for a nation of shopkeepers. It is, however, a project altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers, but extremely fit for a nation that is governed by shopkeepers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To give pain is the tyranny; to make happy, the true empire of beauty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nay, be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought. Every man is the lord of a realm beside which the earthly empire of the Czar is but a petty state, a hummock left by the ice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Dr. Evil: From the moment I heard Frau say I had a clone, I knew that I'd be safe cuz I'd never be alone. An evil doctor shouldn't speak aloud about his feelings, my hurt and my pain don't make me too appealing. I'd hoped Scott would look up to me, run the business of the family, head an evil empire just like his dear old dad, give him my love and the things I never had. Scott would think I was a cool guy, return the love I have, make me want to cry, be evil, but have my feelings too, change my life with Oprah and Maya Angelou. But Scott rejected me, c'est la vie, life is cruel, treats you unfairly, even so, a God there must be, Mini Me, you complete me.More [08/07/2005 12:08:00]
Yurik Schlatz: There's a reason why the empire fell and, Benny, I'm going to make sure it stays down that way.More [08/17/2005 12:08:00]
Narrator: No-one would have believed in the early years of the twenty-first century that our world was being watched by intelligences greater than our own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns, they observed and studied, the way a man with a microscope might scrutinize the creatures that swarm and multiple in a drop of water. With infinite complacency, men went to and fro about the globe, confident of our empire over this world. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded our planet with envious eyes and slowly, and surely, drew their plans against us.More [10/31/2005 12:10:00]
These kids who produced this first videogame were like these stoners. They smoked a lot of pot and they did a lot of drugs. They made this big empire and then blew all their money away.More [11/06/2006 12:11:00]

Tatsu: Your empire flourishes, Master Shredder.
The Shredder: What more from the rat?
Tatsu: Nothing. He will not speak.
The Shredder: And the boy who lead us to the turtles?
Tatsu: He is still missing. I do not understand. Why do the turtles trouble you, Master? They have not been seen for many days.
The Shredder: Something about the way you describe their fighting. Something familiar. Something... from the past.More [03/20/2007 12:03:00]
[first title card]
Title card/crawl: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
Title card/crawl: Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine in an attempt to rescue his friend Han Solo from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. Little does Luke know that the GALACTIC EMPIRE has begun construction on a new armored space station even more powerful than the first dreaded Death Star. When completed, this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for the small band of rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy...More [04/06/2007 12:04:00]

[first lines]
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]
Jerry Fletcher: Love gives you wings. It makes you fly. I don't even call it love. I call it Geronimo. When you're in love, you'll jump right from the top of the Empire State and you won't care, screaming "Geronimo" the whole way down. I love her so bad, I just... whoa, she wrecks me. I'd die for her.More [06/28/2007 12:06:00]

Randal Graves: Which did you like better? "Jedi" or "The Empire Strikes Back"?
Dante Hicks: "Empire".
Randal Graves: Blasphemy.
Dante Hicks: "Empire" had the better ending. I mean, Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader's his father, Han gets frozen and taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that's what life is, a series of down endings. All "Jedi" had was a bunch of Muppets.More [07/24/2007 12:07:00]
Yzma: But... but, I've been nothing but loyal to the empire for... for many, many years.
Kuzco: Yeah, everyone hits their stride. You just hit yours fifty years ago.More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]

[about the zoo's new owner]
Rollo Lee: Starting with his father's radio stations in New Zealand, he has built up a global empire currently worth more than six billion dollars... and growing.
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: How much does he want in the end?
Sydney Lotterby: Yeah.
Rollo Lee: What?
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: How much bigger does he want to get?
Rollo Lee: Well, there aren't any limits. He wants growth.
Adrian "Bugsy" Malone: Presumably he's aware of Dr. E.F. Schumacher's concept of limited resources, or as Jean-Paul Sartre puts it...
Rollo Lee: [interrupting] Any *sensible* questions?More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: It's nice to see you again, Father.
Priest Vito Cornelius: Ah, I remember you now. The so-called art dealer.
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: I'm glad you got your memory back. Because you're gonna need it.
[directs his men out of his office]
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: Where are the stones?
Priest Vito Cornelius: I don't know. And even if I did know, I wouldn't tell somebody like you.
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: Why? What's wrong with me?
Priest Vito Cornelius: I try to serve life. But you only... seem to want to destroy it.
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: Oh, Father, you're so wrong. Let me explain.
[closes office door, places an empty glass on desk]
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Take this empty glass. Here it is, peaceful, serene and boring. But if it is...
[pushes glass off table]
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: destroyed...
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: [robot cleaners move to clean broken glass] Look at all these little things. So busy now. Notice how each one is useful. What a lovely ballet ensues so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people who'll be able to feed their children tonight so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny weeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain... of life.
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: [Desk prepares a glass of water and a bowl of fruit] You see, Father, by creating a little destruction, I'm actually encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business. Cheers.
[drinks water with cherry, only to choke on cherry stuck in throat. Zorg frantically presses all buttons on his desk in an attempt to get something to clear his throat]
Priest Vito Cornelius: Where's the robot to pat you in the back? Or the engineer? Or their children, maybe?
[Desk brings out Zorg's pet Picasso; Zorg motions it to try and help him]
Priest Vito Cornelius: There, you see how all your so-called power counts for absolutely nothing? How your entire empire of destruction comes... crashing down. All because of one little... cherry.
[Slaps Zorg in the back, causing him to spit the cherry at Picasso]
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: [opens doors, throws Cornelius to guards] You saved my life, and in return, I'll spare yours... for now.
Priest Vito Cornelius: You're a monster, Zorg.
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: I know.
[directs guards to take Cornelius away]
Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg: [snaps fingers] Torture who you have to. The President, I don't care. Just bring me those stones. You have one hour.More [11/07/2007 12:11:00]
Uncle Albert: Rule Three: Laundry three times a week. Very important, you know. The British Empire was built on clean pants. Clean pants and...

Dr. Dawson: What-what-what did he mean an engagement at Buckingham Palace?
Basil: Haven't you figured it out yet, Doctor? The Queen's in danger and the empire is doomed.
Dr. Dawson: [Alarmed] The Queen?More [01/09/2008 12:01:00]

Hard Hat Man: You're on top of it, kid.More [04/29/2008 12:04:00]
Brian Kessler: I remember once going on a school trip to the top of the Empire State Building. When I looked down at the crowds of people on the street they looked like ants. I pulled out a penny and some of us started talking about what would happen if I dropped it from up there and it landed on someone's head. Of course I never crossed that line and actually dropped the penny. I don't think Early Grayce even knew there was a line to cross.More [05/21/2008 12:05:00]

Lieutenant Forsythe:
I met her on the train, if you don't mind.



Lieutenant Alan McGregor:
Bad business talking to strange people out here. You know, this is India, you don't who they are, and you might...



Lieutenant Forsythe:
Oh, I see. Beautiful spy meets young Lancer officer, makes him give away important military secrets. The Empire goes smash! Melodrama, my dear McGregor, melodrama!



Lieutenant Alan McGregor:
It might not be as funny as it sounds, Mr. Stone.



Lieutenant Forsythe:
I don't suppose it matters to you, but my name isn't Stone.



Lieutenant Alan McGregor:
[Confused] No?



Lieutenant Forsythe:
No. It's Forsythe.



Lieutenant Alan McGregor:
[Points to well dressed man walking down the platform] Well then, that must be Stone right there.



Lieutenant Forsythe:
That's very good you know, really very good. It's almost brilliant.

King Philip II:
[anticipating the success of the Armada] With England conquered, nothing can stand in our way. Northern Africa... Europe as far east as the Urals... then the New World: to the north, to the south, west to the Pacific... over the Pacific to China and to the Indies will our empire spread. One day, before my death, we shall sit here and gaze at this map upon the wall. It will have ceased to be a map of the world. It will be Spain.

No your excellency. It's true we Americans don't know very much about you Japanese. And we never did. And now I realize you know even less about us. You can kill us. All of us, or part of us. But if you think that's going to put the fear of god into the United States of America, and stop them from sending other flyers to bomb you, you're wrong. Dead wrong. They'll come by night, they'll come by day. Thousands of them. They'll blacken your skies and burn your cities to the ground and make you get down on your knees and beg for mercy. This is your war. You wanted it. You asked for it. You started it. And now you're going to get it. And it won't be finished until your dirty little empire is wiped off the face of the earth.

Caligula:
Stand back! You're not on trial! There's no evidence against you!



Diana:
Then if it please you, sire, I'll provide evidence. I have no wish to live another hour in an empire ruled by *you*! You dare to call yourself a Caesar. Once the Caesars of Rome were noble, but in you, noble blood has turned to poison. You corrupt Rome with your spite and malice.



Caligula:
Stop! Stop it!



Diana:
That *you* should be Caesar, vicious, treacherous, drunk with power, an evil, insane monster posing as emperor.



Caligula:
STOP IT!

As for me, I have found another king. I want to go with my husband into his kingdom.

Just dandy. I got the old boy to embezzle 100,000 dollars and lost it for him at the race track. Then his wife left him and he took to drink. I told him I was through and he jumped out the window... twenty second story.

Senator:
There are those who say you cannot hear properly, you cannot speak properly, and that you've got no experience of government.



Claudius:
And that I am besides half-witted. Senators, it is true that I am hard of hearing, but you will find it is not for want of listening. As for speaking, again, it's true I have an impediment. But isn't what a man says more important than how long he takes to say it? It's true again I have little experience of government. But then, have you more? I at least have lived with the imperial family who has ruled this empire ever since you so spinelessly handed it over to us. I've observed it working more closely than any of you. Is your experience better than that? As for being half-witted, well, what can I say - except that I have survived to middle age with *half* my wits, while thousands have died with *all* of theirs intact. Evidently, *quality* of wits is more important than *quantity*. Senators, I shall do nothing unconstitutional; I shall appear at the next session of the senate where you may confirm me in my position or not as you wish. But if it pleases you not to, explain your reasons to them

Don't bother on my account. I'm sick of it. Gods know I've done my best; he's never liked me, never. Thirty years I've run his errands for him; I've fought on his bloody frontiers, collected his taxes- Never once has he put his hand on my shoulder and said "Thank you, what would I have done without you?" He sends me off again and doesn't even give me a goodbye, just "Get on your horse and ride." Well, damn him. I retired before once and I can do it again; let his precious grandson run his empire for him. I'm sick to death of it.

Livia:

Claudius:
Grandmother... who killed Marcellus?


[Long pause]



Livia:
I did. The empire needed Agrippa more then it needed Marcellus, and then I had Agrippa poisoned so Tiberius could marrry Julia because I that the man who was married to her would be the next emperor, my son messed that up, of course...



Claudius:
And what about Julia's sons by Agrippa, how did they die?



Livia:
Gaius I had poisoned while he was in Gaul.



Claudius:
You have a long reach!



Livia:
The empire is large, I need one. Then Lucius was murdered in a boating accident arranged by his Platus.



Claudius:
And... Postumus?


[pause]



Livia:
You were really fond of him weren't you?



Claudius:
[sadly] Yes, grandmother.



Livia:
He was useless. I had to get rid of Postumus; he was a theat to Tiberius. Besides, he knew I had his mother Julia banished.
