I very much enjoyed this one~
JOHN: this one here is so great. it is about this street tough renegade who did hard time behind bars, and wants nothing more in the world than to reunite with his loving wife and daughter. but not so fast! he has to go on crazy and dangerous escapades through the sky with a motley assortment of rogues led by john malkovich, who is wise to cage’s heroic nature and pure heart. they tether a grumpy police man’s awesome car to the plane and smash it, and then later they crash into some casinos. cage gets out of the wreckage and hugs his family, and i usually tear up a little.
JOHN: that is my working troll title for the movie, i hope it was ok.
ROSE: In some cultures the persistent refusal of a lady’s invitation to play a game with her would be a sign wanton disrespect.
ROSE: Either that, or flagrant homosexuality.

JADE: it also sounds kind of exciting!
JADE: i dont know john maybe this is your destiny
JADE: if anyone can save the world i think it is probably you!
JANE: Personally, I can hardly contain my excitement over it.
JANE: If years ago someone told me, which incidentally someone DID, that today I would have an exclusive opportunity to play what is absolutely the most cutting edge immersive simulation game ever released, developed by a company which has already done so much for the advancement of humanity, I would have said, “Shucks, buster, sign me up!”
JAKE: Oh for frigs flipping sake jane this is no time for your prudish pedantry! Leave your bookish malarkey in a dusty old library somewhere. I have an adventure to get on with!
ROXY: i really dont think we should

ROXY: but she took all that and twisted it somehow
ROXY: all i know is shes banking on us doing this and if she needs us to do this than its got to be to make somethin fucking hoorible happen
ROXY: * horbible
ROXY: * whore bible
ROXY: ^ bullseye
DIRK: The upper echelons of irony should always include measures of sincerity. And if the satirical practice is executed faithfully it will achieve something bona fide in its own right regardless.
DIRK: Through an intense commitment bordering on religious devotion to the absolutely inane, absurd, or plain fucking stupid, a very different kind of sincerity begins to materialize. One of reverence to the ridiculous. You begin to “mean it,” but what exactly it is you mean is never quite what appears on the surface, and is utterly inaccessible to obtuse and literal minds. That you “mean it” then becomes inseparable from the joke, and additional rich strata of humor may be stripped aggressively from this irreconcilable truth.
ARADIA: im 0k with it

KARKAT: ATTENTION WORTHLESS HUMAN.
KARKAT: THIS IS YOUR GOD SPEAKING.
KARKAT: IT IS A WRATHFUL GOD WHO DESPISES YOU MORE THAN YOU COULD HAVE POSSIBLY DARED TO FEAR.
KARKAT: I HAVE WATCHED YOUR ENTIRE PATHETIC LIFE UNFOLD.
KARKAT: I HAVE OBSERVED YOU WHILE YOU WOULD QUAKE AND TREMBLE IN PERSONAL PRAYERS OF SHAME.
KARKAT: WHILE YOU PLEADED FORGIVENESS FOR BEING SUCH A WRETCHED DISGUSTING FAILURE ON EVERY CONCEIVABLE LEVEL.
KARKAT: PROSTRATE BEFORE THE STUPID AND FALSE CLOWN GODS YOU HAVE SCRIBBLED ON THE WALLS OF YOUR BLOCK.
KARKAT: BOGUS DEITIES WORSHIPED BY A PRIMITIVE “PARADISE” PLANET.
KARKAT: BUT YOUR PRAYERS WILL NOT BE ANSWERED.

KARKAT: ONLY MY HATE.
