We don’t need martyrs… we need heroes…

From The West Wing, Season 3, Episode 1 (Isaac and Ishmael), as said by President Bartlett…

We don’t need martyrs right now. We need heroes. A hero would die for his country, but he’d much rather live for it…

Gems from Star Trek TNG III…

I am now on Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 5, and I have to say that this is the best written season, so far. The episodes are very well written, and the themes are very inspiring. Darmok is one episode that lingers, and The Unification is a nostalgic trip – with Spock making his first (and probably only) appearance in TNG. This exchange between him and Data deserves to be my best quote in Star Trek so far ;)

Gems from Star Trek TNG II…

Another Star Trek: The Next Generation (3rd Season) DVD night for me, and another good exchange between Picard and Data. In the episode entitled “The High Ground”, they are discussing the terrorist activities in a planet wherein some of their crew have been thrown in the middle:

Gems from Star Trek TNG…

Quote from “The Majestic”

From The Majestic:

I thought this was a democracy?
The Declaration of Independence? The Constitution? Just pieces of paper with signatures on them. And you know what a signed paper is? A contract. Something that can be renegotiated at any time…

Gems from the X-Files II…

“I think nature is supremely indifferent to whether we live or die. I mean, if you’re lucky you get 75 years, if you’re really lucky you get 80. And if you’re extraordinarily lucky, you get 50 of those years with a decent head of hair.” – Agent Fox MulderThe X-Files.

Gems from The X-Files…

“Life is like a box of chocolates – a cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you’re stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there’s nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there’s a peanut butter cup, or an English toffee, but they’re gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts. If you’re desperate enough to eat those, all you’ve got left is an empty box, filled with useless brown paper wrappers…” – The Cigarette Smoking ManThe X-Files

“But what science may never be able to explain is our ineffable fear of the alien among us; a fear which often drives us, not to search for understanding, but to deceive, inveigle and obfuscate; to obscure the truth not only from others, but from ourselves…” – Agent Dana ScullyThe X-Files.

“I can kill you whenever I please. But not today…” The Cigarette Smoking ManThe X-Files.
