"That's very Zen of you, you must smoke pot."

- Georgia Lass, Dead Like Me.
"I'd say I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not. I excel at not giving a shit. Experience has taught me that interest begets expectation, and expectation beget disappointment, so the key to avoiding disappointment is to avoid interest. A equals B equals C Equals A, or whatever. I also don't have a lot of interest in being a good person or a bad person. From what I can tell, either way, you're screwed. Bad people are punished by society's laws, and good people are punished by Murphy's Law. So you see my dilemma."

- Georgia Lass, Dead Like Me.
"Rule number one, the only person you can trust in this world is yourself."

- Dylan McKay, Beverly Hills 90210.
"I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me."

- Bob Dylan.
"Some people seem to fade away but then when they are truly gone, it's like they didn't fade away at all."

- Bob Dylan.
"You have to dream, you have to have a vision, and you have to set a goal for yourself that might even scare you a little because sometimes that seems far beyond your reach. Then I think you have to develop a kind of resistance to rejection, and to the disappointments that are sure to come your way."

- Gregory Peck.
“Film lovers are sick people.”

- Francois Truffaut.
“Some people—and I am one of them—hate happy ends. We feel cheated. Harm is the norm. Doom should not jam. The avalanche stopping in its tracks a few feet above the cowering village behaves not only unnaturally but unethically.”

- Vladimir Nabokov.
“You want me complain? Alright then, fuck this. Fuck you, fuck all of you with your sniveling self-pity. And fuck all your lousy parents. Fuck my lousy parents while we’re at it. Fuck my selfish bohemian sister and her fucking bliss. Fuck my legless grandmother. Fuck my dead husband and my lousy children with their nasty little secrets. And fuck you Robbie for dragging me to this terrible place and not letting me have a Snickers bar! I’m going to get something to eat!”

- Ruth Fisher, Six Feet Under.
"A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving into a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out, it is a experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept the mystery."

- John Keats, Bright Star.
"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting. And though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments; the joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow, empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead."

- Angelus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
"I hate Serenity, I hated Firefly, I think my fans are stupid and Nathan Fillion smells like turnips."

- Joss Whedon.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciated them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

- Marilyn Monroe.
"I'm just a musical prostitute, my dear."

- Freddie Mercury.
"Every time he and Glynnis talk science he acts like Captain Kirk getting it on with a hot alien."

- Grace, Joan of Arcadia.
"I swear, I solemnly believe that humanity is now officially descending a ladder of evolution. In a thousand years, human beings will be the size of gerbils, and they'll have one thought a year, in December. They'll think about what they want for Christmas."

- Jack, The Ballad of Jack and Rose.

"We all go a little mad sometimes."

- Norman Bates, Psycho.
"You know what I think? I think that we're all in our private traps, clamped in them, and none of us can ever get out. We scratch and we claw, but only at the air, only at each other, and for all of it, we never budge an inch."

- Norman Bates, Psycho.
