Favorite Quotations

I have so many quotes that I love that come from tv shows, movies, books or wherever I might hear them. I thought it would be fun to share them and compile a list of them. I'll do my best to name the tv show and episode as long as I can remember which ones come from where. If I don't have one listed, let me know and I'll try to fix it.

"What's a hut'uun? A coward. Physical coward, moral coward, any kind of scum without the spine to stand their ground or do the right thing. We don't have a word for hero.

- Baltan Carid
Republic Commando

"Now the question of the hour is, "Who's got the Pandorica?" Answer: I do. Next question: Who's coming to take it from me? [Pause] Come on! Look at me! No plan, no back-up, no weapons worth a damn! Oh, and something else I don't have: Anything to lose! So, if you're sitting up there in your silly little spaceships, with all your silly little guns, and you've got any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight, just remember who's standing in your way! Remember every black day I ever stopped you! And then, AND THEN... do the smart thing: Let somebody else try first."

~ From "Killer" by Stephen Carpenter

"Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies.

When a good man goes to war.
Demons run but count the cost, the battle’s won but the child is lost."
- poem spoken by River Song
