From Babylon 5, Season 1, Episode 5 'The Parliament Of Dreams'

Tu'Pari: "Are you Ambassador G'kar?"

G'kar: "These are Ambassador G'kar's quarters. This is Ambassador G'kar's table. This is Ambassador G'kar's DINNER. What part of this progression escapes you?"

Just saw a headline on Google Finance:

Bloomberg wrote:Tax Cuts, Haircuts And The Death Of Truth


And all I can think is, 'If the truth is dead, Bloomberg's fingerprints are all over the knife'.

Along with many others, of course, but for Bloomberg to be squawking about 'The Death Of Truth' is kind of like Bernie Madoff denouncing fraud.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

My best friend's wife speaking to me . . .

"Now I know the real use of a man's beard and his chest hair. They are safety nets and storage bins to catch and store food droppings. My husband can eat out of his beard and his chest hair for months!"


Poor guy. In his defense, this guy had a full beard in junior high and his chest and back needed regular trimming by a weed eater. No, hedge trimmers. No, a John Deer!

Now he chooses to let it run amok, having long lost the battle of attrition.

Predator 2018 - lotsa one-liners.

"What's with the polygraph, I thought this was a psyche eval?"

"We need to know if you pose a threat."

"I'm a sniper. Isn't posing a threat kinda the fucking point?"

"You feel like you're being railroaded?"

"I can see the tracks on the floor."



3-letter agency asshole talking to a bright little kid who happens to understand alien technology. He wants the kid to help him open the door to the spaceship . . .

"What do you say buddy? You think you can get us in there? Because I don't think you can."

"You're using reverse psychology. I can do that too. Don't go fuck yourself."
