Quote of the Day

I'll always be stupid

Willow:  I’m kinda curious to find out what sort of career I could have.

Xander:  What, and suck all the spontaneity out of being young and stupid? I’d rather live in the dark.

Willow:  You’re not gonna be young forever.

Xander:  Yes, but I’ll always be stupid.

Quote of the Day

Jack had always liked the young, and in any case he felt that a guest was entitled to consideration at his table, so having invited Ellis to drink a glass of wine with him, he smiled affably and said, ‘You people were reciting some verses in the foretop this morning. Very capital verses, I dare say — Mr Mowett’s verses? Mr Mowett turns a pretty line.’ So he did. His piece on the bending of the new mainsail was admired throughout the sloop: but most unhappily he had also been inspired to write, as part of a general description:

White as the clouds beneath the blaze of noon
Her bottom through translucent waters shone.

For the time being this couplet had quite destroyed his authority with the youngsters; and it was this couplet they had been reciting in the foretop, hoping thereby to provoke him still further.

‘Pray, will you not recite them to us? I am sure the Doctor would like to hear.’

‘Oh, yes, pray do,’ said Stephen.

The unhappy boy thrust a great lump of mutton into his cheek, turned a nasty yellow and gathered to his heart all the fortitude he could call upon. He said, ‘Yes, sir,’ fixed his eyes upon the stern-window and began,

White as the clouds beneath the blaze of noon Oh God don’t let me die

White as the clouds beneath the blaze of noon
Her b — ‘ His voice quavered, died, revived as a thin desperate ghost and squeaked out ‘Her bottom‘; but could do no more.

‘A damned fine verse,’ cried Jack, after a very slight pause. ‘Edifying too.’

Gul Rusot: Oh? Why is that?

Garak: She would’ve killed you.

Quote of the Day

Hermione!

She stirred, then sat up quickly, pushing her hair out of her face.

“What’s wrong? Harry? Are you all right?”

“It’s okay, everything’s fine. More than fine. I’m great. There’s someone here.”

“What do you mean? Who — ?”

She saw Ron, who stood their holding the sword and dripping onto the threadbare carpet. Harry backed into a shadowy corner, slipped off Ron’s rucksack, and attempted to blend in with the canvas.

Hermione slid off her bunk and moved like a sleepwalker toward Ron, her eyes upon his pale face. She stopped right in front of him, her lips slightly parted, her eyes wide. Ron gave a weak, hopeful smile and half raised his arms.

Hermione launched herself forward and started punching every inc of him that she could reach.

“Ouch — ow — gerroff! What the — ? Hermione — OW!”

“You — complete — arse— Ronald — Weasley!”

She punctuated every word with a blow: Ron backed away, shielding his head as Hermione advanced.

“You — crawl — back — here — after — weeks — and — weeks — oh, where’s my wand?”

Giles:  I never wanted you to see that side of me.

Buffy:  I’m not gonna lie to you. It was scary. I’m so used to you being a grownup, and then I find out that you’re a person.

Giles:  Most grownups are.

Buffy:  Who would’ve thought?

Giles:  Some are even, uh… shortsighted, foolish people.

Buffy:  So, after all this time, we finally find out that we *do* have something in common. Which, apart from being a little weird, is kind of okay. I think we’re supposed to be training right now.

Giles:  Yes. Yes. Um, need to concentrate on your flexibility.

Buffy:  And you know what? I have just the perfect music. Go on, say it. You know you want to.

Giles:  It’s not music, it’s just, uh, meaningless sounds.

Buffy:  There. Feel better?

Giles:  Yes. Thanks. … Bay City Rollers. Now, that’s music.

Buffy:  I didn’t hear that.

‘Dinner?’ cried Stephen, as though the meal had just been invented. ‘Dinner? Oh, yes: charmed — delighted,’
