Maybe in another fifty years they will be valued as records of some species that have disappeared. I hope not. But I did not make them because I had premonitions of impending eco-disaster. I did so because I know of no pleasure deeper than that which comes from contemplating the natural world and trying to understand it.

Black Books Episode: The Grapes of Wrath

Bernard:
[fiendish laughter] They'd all laugh at me if they knew what I was trying to do. To create a new strain of super wine in half an hour with a fraction of natures resources and a FOOL for an assistant. Bernard Black, he's mad they'd say. He's insane. He's dangerous. Well I'll show them, I'll show them all!
Manny:
I have returned.
Bernard:
Nutmeg, we need nutmeg!
Manny:
NUTMEG!
Bernard:
It's my destiny, my legacy to the world!
Manny:
Is there anything else you need? It's just with the limp and everything, I'm getting a bit tired.
Bernard:
JUST GET THE NUTMEG!
Manny:
Nutmeg!
Manny:
Oh it's just here.
Bernard:
Ah. And an oak finish. Oak... Oak! To the front garden!
[both go outside]
Bernard:
What is this? This isn't oak. Why did you get so much? You fool!
Manny:
[whimpering]
Bernard:
Get back! Get back in! Get back in!
[back inside]
Bernard:
[puts stem in bottle, raises it] Now live! LIVE!
[thunder and lightning]

Rimmer:
....Sometimes you have to learn how to lose before you're ready to win. It's all in this facinating book I'm reading.
Kryten:
Oh, what's it called sir?
Rimmer:
Sometimes You Have to Learn How to Lose Before You're Ready to Win.
Rimmer:
It's not a long book Kryten but it makes a good point, I think. Which is-
Kryten:
Sometimes you have to learn how to lose before you're ready to win?
Rimmer:
You've read it?
Kryten:
Err actually no sir.
Rimmer:
Ahh sounds like you have.

youvegotwings:

When I see some of the comments, I swear it’s like people didn’t get the story arc for this season : the doctor has been travelling on his own for the most part and because of it he’s getting darker and darker and losing sense of what’s good and what’s not. It makes no sense…

People also forget what the ninth doctor was like at the very beginning

The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy's Whale.

Whale:
Ahh! What's happening!?
Whale:
Ah excuse me, who am I? Hello? Why am I here? What's my purpose in life? What do I mean by who am I?
Whale:
Calm down, get a grip now.
Whale:
Oh this is an interesting sensation. What is it? It's a sort of yawning, tingling sensation in my... my... Well I suppose I better start finding names for things if I'm to make any headway in this - what I shall call an arguement, in what I shall call the world!
Whale:
So let's call it my... Stomach!
Whale:
So a yawning, tingling sensation in my stomach! Good! Wow ooh it's getting quite strong.
Whale:
Hey, what about this whistling, roaring sound going past what I'm suddenly going to call my head! That can be wind! Is that a good name? Well, it'll do. I'll try and find a better name for it later when I find out what it's for because there certainly seems to be a hell of a lot of it!
Whale:
Hey, what's this thing? This...ta...tail! Yeah, tail!
Whale:
Hey I can really thrash about pretty good can't I? Wow! Wow! Hey! Doesn't seem to achieve much but I'll find out what it's for later on.
Whale:
Now, have I built up any coherent picture of me yet?
Whale:
...no.
Whale:
Oh well, hey this is really exciting, I'm quite dizzy with anticipation! Or is that the wind?
Whale:
And wow, what's this thing coming towards me very fast? Very, very fast! So big and flat and wide, it needs a big wide sounding word like, rou...roun...round...ground! That's it, ground!
Whale:
I wonder if it'll be friends with me?
