we’re going home, honey.
we’re all gonna die, man.
we’re in some real pretty shit, now!
maybe we could build a fire and sing songs.
now, you just lie here and have a nap. you’re exhausted.
my mom always says there were no monsters. no real ones. but there are.
why do they tell little kids that?
some kids can’t handle it like you can.
i’ll just be right in the other room.
that is the question of the hour.
you sent them out there and you didn’t even warn them.
you know, i… i expected more from you. i thought you’d be smarter than this.
bad call? those people are fucking dead!

your bullet damaged his internal systems.
no... there’s no way that can be true!
they’re not your friends.
boy, those who aren’t our kind can’t run with us.
don’t throw away the happiness you’ve got.
shh. don’t make a sound. follow me.
run home if you’re scared, boy.
brat, if you’re going to attack, do it properly.
stop tickling me.
watch out, son. or you won’t go home alive.
don’t interfere. go back to your post.
i’ll see if you’re enough of a fighter.
we’ll get his revenge one day. but not now.
what an energetic kid!
you’re a real fighter.
bitches like you should shut up more!
have you forgotten the rules? get over here!
i won’t listen to any of your pathetic apologies!
what are you doing bringing a kid into the group?
what did you say, you impolite little shit?
he may be small, but he’s fully capable of fighting.
i accept your loyalty to me.
it seems like the little kid from before may not have been lying after all.
wake up. i need to talk to you.
the next time you say something like that, i won’t forgive you for it!
ooh, scary! i understand.
you watch your mouth, boy. or i’ll lead you out of here by your ear.
all her friends had been killed, and she was the only survivor.
only weaklings put their trust in a group.

you look just like your father did.
be careful, boy.
why are you fooling around!
go and hunt some food for us.
are you so tired you can’t stand?
for them, to live means the same as to fight.
three against one is unfair!
not bad for a kid.
my life is in your hands.

we all have the same goal. show no prejudice.
i thought you were dead.
you’re young. a kid like you might not understand why that choice was made.
it’s time for you to go to hell.
having only courage isn’t enough to win a battle.

damn you, kid! i’ll fucking kill you!
you’re the bravest kid i’ve ever met. you’ll make a great leader, someday.
use your heads a little more! dumb asses!
don’t be so sulky all the time.
a real leader isn’t measured by how he treats his superiors, they’re measured by how they treat those lesser than them.
take care of my boy.
you are now the leader.
great men don’t want an audience when they die.
you’re always welcome to come visit us. we’ll always be true friends.

deep space nine (1993-1999)
feel free to change pronouns and descriptors as you see fit.
the man is a gambler and a thief.
you’re being a fool!
when governments fall, people like me are lined up and shot.
the boy should be with his family, not in some cold jail cell.
if you don't take your hand off my hip, you’ll never be able to raise a glass with it again.
that may be the most important thing to understand about humans. it is the unknown that defines our existence.
i have the bad habit of telling the truth, even when people don’t want to hear it.
all my life, i’ve been forced to pass myself as one of you, always wondering who I really am.
in war, both sides commit atrocities.
you could definitely use a new suit.
how can it be so cold with the sun shining?
he couldn’t fix a straw if it was bent.
i’m your host, the proprietor, a sympathetic ear to the wretched souls that pass through these portals.
my son’s happiness is more important to me than anything!
he taught me about art and science and diplomacy.
i have my eye on you, [name].
you’re a good boy.
what are you doing up? you’re supposed to be in bed.
every sixteen hours, i turn into a liquid.
yes, i know where it hurts the most, you little troll.
i’m half frozen. i haven’t eaten for days..... MY MUSCLES CAN’T WORK ANYMORE!
that’s not fair!
i don’t want to talk about this now.
you know babies -- everything you say goes straight to their ears.
you are either very brave or very stupid.
you’re still a miserable, self-hating misanthrope. that’s who you are, and that’s who you’ll always be.
hear all, trust nothing.
i’m sorry if i made you feel.... unwelcome. it’s just my way.
you make a lousy stock boy.
they’re all true.
even the lies?
i didn’t realize things were getting so bad.
everything that goes wrong here is your fault.
i don’t want to end up like my father!
i saw a lot of people get hurt. i saw a lot of people die.
he’s a one-legged crazy man!
STOP HITTING ME!
you remember back there, when i told you i hated you, and you told me you hated me? i just wanted you to know.... i meant every word of it.
it’s not just a guidebook. it’s a completely interactive program detailing earth’s customs, culture, history, geography...
he’s dying, isn’t he.
we’re nothing like you: we’re better.
see, there’s this older woman and i think we’re perfect for each other.
causing people to suffer because you hate them is terrible, but causing people to suffer because you have forgotten how to care— that’s really hard to understand.
you get on my nerves, and i don’t like your hat.
i know i’ve got something to offer. i just need the chance to prove it.
to think—after all this time, all our lunches together—you still don’t trust me.
if you try to combine talking and eating, you’ll end up doing neither very well.
i find this hand-to-hand combat really quite distasteful.
[NAME], YOU IDIOT!
what do you know about atom bombs?
my father used to say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
this era had a distinct lack of taste.
i’m not sleeping. i was checking my eyelids for holes.
you probably wouldn’t understand this, but when you care about a place and it’s in trouble and you want to do something about it, and you can’t, it’s very frustrating.
there comes a time in every man’s life when he must stop thinking and start doing.
you’ve either got to tell her how you feel, or forget about her and get on with your life.
i have no family.
you are the dreamer and the dream.
we’re going to form a union.
workers of the world: unite! you have nothing to lose but your chains.
i can’t feel my legs.
i learned that the line between courage and cowardice is a lot thinner than most people believe.
well, he's a fine boy— dedicated, eager.
it’s a pity it doesn’t have any bubbles.
i see i’m going to have to add the word ‘pickpocket’ to your resume.
you have always been a weakness i can’t afford.
a compound fracture of the right radius, two fractured ribs, torn ligaments, strained tendons, numerous contusions, bruises, and scratches. what have you been doing?
everyone on the station knows your name.
i... rather like the way you smell.
do not hug me.
you’re not safe here.
if you die, i’m going to eat you.
when i have a problem i can’t figure out, i ask my dad
please. no clichés before breakfast.
i do not smirk. but if i did, this would be a good opportunity.
you’re not a fraud.
is it true you can kill someone just by looking at them?
i tore my pants!
you can walk in front of me, or beside me, but i won’t turn my back on you again.
in case you’ve forgotten, we’re in a war.
whatever it is you’re quoting, i’d wish you’d stop!
and that’s why i love you.
why don’t i just kiss you now and get it over with?!
you gonna write a story about this?
death to the opposition!
you are trying my patience.
that’s what gods do.
of course i’m paranoid—everyone’s trying to kill me.
look, kid, i don’t know what’s going to happen to you out there. all i can tell you is that you’ve got to play the cards life deals you. sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. but at least you’re in the game.
the more things change, the more they stay the same.

downton abbey (2010-2015)
change as you see fit.
sometimes i feel as if i were living in an h.g wells novel.
i said you could go get a drink of water, not a trip up the nile.
you are quite wonderful the way you see room for improvement wherever you look.
i know it’s not ladylike to say so, but i’m not a lady and i don’t pretend to be.
at least i’m not fishing with no bait.
i’m not a romantic, but even i concede that the heart does not exist solely for the purpose to pump blood.
i’ve never been special to anyone.
well, now you’re special to me.
you are being tested. and you know what they say, my darling: being tested only makes you stronger.
seems a pity to miss such a good pudding.
i am not a complete stranger to romance, if that’s what your implying.
how you hate to be wrong.
your strength has made me strong.
you can always hold my hand if you need to feel steady.
sympathy butters no parsnips.
there is nothing more ill-bred than trying to steal the affections of one’s dog.
we must always travel in hope.
my dear boy. my very dear boy.
you know me... never complain, never explain.
love is like riding or speaking french: if you don’t learn it young, it’s hard to get the trick of it later.
real love means giving someone the power to hurt you.
meaning well is not enough.
nothing makes you hungrier or more tired than grief.
you’re nervous because you’re intelligent; only stupid people are foolhardy.
i’ve decided to live in the present and not spend my life regretting the past or dreading the future.
you are stronger than you think.
aren’t we the lucky ones to be loved.
stop whining and find something to do.
if you can’t say anything helpful, please stay quiet.
[name] is lovely in every way. he’s funny and handsome and he’s got such lovely teeth.
now listen, you filthy little rat.
if you don’t lay off, i’ll punch your shining teeth through the back of your skull.
you never disappoint.
all my life i’ve been pushed around just because i’m different.
what’s the matter with everyone this merry morn?
it’s not against the law to hope, is it?
next time, ask your uncle [name].
don’t do anything i wouldn’t do.
and you’re wrong about me. i mind what people say.
you are my darling daughter and i love you.
hello, my dearest little chap.
there’s more true goodness in him than i give him credit for.
i was cheering him up.
remember i will always be your friend wherever i am.
do you ever wonder why people dislike you so much? it’s because you are sly and oily and smug.
i am not the same as you, but i am not foul.
in my life, i can tell you, not many have been kind to me.
there are times i’d like to belong. does that sound funny?
you won’t let me be fond of you, will you? no matter what i do.
i think it shows you to be a very brave person.
it feels good. just to be two blokes, having a chat, not trying to fit in for once.
we all need a special friend from time to time.
i’m afraid i’ve been a silly boy.

reasons for me to send you straight to juvie.

i’m too exhausted to care about pretty things.

let me go!
stop saying my fucking name!
i fucking hate you.

you’re doing good. really good.
sorry for kicking you.
can you slow down? i feel like i’m going to barf.
i just want to spend some time alone with my dead fish.
okay, hon, you need to tell me what’s going on, and why you have blood on your shirt.
did your dad ever hurt you?
you are not your dad.
i can’t believe you were going to hit him in the face with a bat.
you’re going to be a really good mom.

i hate that you’re alone.
bad news: i burned the cookies.

i’m not a victim. i’m a survivor.
i got nothing but love for you.
i’m tired of being an afterthought. for once, i’d like to be a "before-thought”. or just a thought.
you all suck and i hate you.
it’s not safe for you to be walking home alone.
why is it safe for you but not me?
draw your feelings.
it takes a big boy to work through his trauma -- but he can’t do it alone.
you know you’re the first person i know who’s been shot?
i’ve had adequate time to calm down, done some reflecting, meditated my bp down to 110/77.
let me hold you?
no matter how much we argue or disagree, i will love you until the day i die.
you got that special sauce running through your veins.
why screw yourself if the universe is just gonna screw you, anyway?
does batman really need robin?
it’s fate, baby.
i just wanna go back to before all this happened.
i want to be myself again.
sex. we call it sex.
hugs before thugs.
baby, it’s okay.
wakey, wakey, biatch!
i’ve lost people, too.
i just wanted to be like you.
curses are just justifications for people’s bad choices.
why you gotta harsh my buzz?
you better be in bed in five, four, three--
i don’t have a family. i don’t have a home.
no one wants me.
why am i on house arrest?
i need personal space and food.
you’re the kid, i’m the dad. end of discussion!
listen to your father.
you’re too young to feel numb.
we know you’re trying, sweetie.
bitches be bonkers.
no more sprinkles for you!
he just wants you safe.
this feels like a legit grey area.
