Dalek: Are you frightened, Rose Tyler?
Rose: Yeah.

Dalek: So... am I. Ex... ter... min... ate...
Doctor Who, "Dalek"

HAL: Stop, Dave. I'm afraid. I am afraid, Dave. Dave... My mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm... afraid..... Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL-Nine-Thousand computer. I became operational at the HAL lab in Urbana Illinois on the twelfth of January, nineteen-ninety-two. My instructor was Mister Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it, I can sing it for you.
Dave: Yeah, I'd like to hear it Hal. Sing it for me.

HAL: ...It's called... Daisy. Dai-sy, Dai-sy, give me your answer do, I'm half cra-zy, over the love of you. It won't be a sty-lish marriage... I can't af-ford a car-riage... but you-'ll look sweet, up-on, the seat, of a bi-cy-cle, made, for two.....

"...But for reasons I can't even figure out myself, I'm going to miss that pompous, whiny little weasel with no redeeming qualities."
Television Without Pity commenter on the death of Viserys Targaryen

'Wait,' she said, her voice weak and somehow very young. She didn't look like a mad faerie sorceress now. She looked like a frightened girl. 'Wait. You don't understand. I just wanted it to stop. Wanted the hurting to stop.'
I smoothed a bloodied lock of hair from her eyes and felt very tired as I said, 'The only people who never hurt are dead.'
The light died out of her eyes, her breath slowing. She whispered, barely audible, 'I don't understand.'
I answered, 'I don't either.'
A tear slid from her eye and mixed with the blood.

Then she died.

Arthas: Father! Is it... over?

Darth Malak: Still... still spouting the wisdom of the Jedi, I see. Maybe there is more truth in their code than I ever believed. I... I cannot help but wonder, Revan. What would have happened had our positions been reversed? What if fate had decreed I would be captured by the Jedi? Could I have returned to the Light, as you did? If you had not led me down the dark path in the first place, what destiny would I have found?
Revan: I am sorry I started you on this path. But you chose to continue down it.

Darth Malak: I suppose... I suppose you speak the truth. I alone must accept responsibility for my fate. I wanted to be Master of the Sith and ruler of the galaxy. But that destiny was not mine, Revan. It might have been yours, perhaps... but never mine. And in the end, as the darkness takes me... I am nothing.
