From Harry Turtledove's 3rd Worldwar book:

[Watching the mushroom cloud over Lizard-occupied Rome] "There goes the Pope!"

"I'm no Catholic, but that's a hell of a thing to do to him."

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?"

"It would cause talk."
"And talk is more to be feared than pneumonia?"
"Of course! You can get over pneumonia!"

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.
