(Ruth, selfishly: Will the lifeboats be seated according to class? I hope they're not too crowded!) (Rose gets really angry and has enough of her mother's selfishness.) Oh Mother...SHUT UP! Don't you understand?! The water is freezing and there aren't enough boats! Not enough by half.. Half the people on the ship are going to die! (Cal. arrogantly: Not the better half..) (Rose turns to face Cal with a cold glare.) (Molly Brown, politely: C'mon Ruth! Get in the boat! First Class seats are right up here!) (Ruth gets into the boat, while Cal confronts Rose.) (Cal, coldly: You know its a pity I didn't keep that drawing, It'll be worth a lot more by morning.) (Rose gets really angry with Cal upon realizing that he framed her love Jack Dawson for stealing the Heart of the Ocean diamond necklace earlier.) You unimaginable bastard! (Molly: C'mon Rose, Darlin! There's plenty of room for you! C'mon Rose! You're next, Darlin!) (Ruth, sternly: Come into the boat, Rose!) (Rose doesn't get in.) (Cal: Come!) (Ruth, still sternly: Rose! Get into the Boat! Rose!) (Rose has had enough of her controlling mother.) Goodbye Mother! (Rose walks away and Ruth starts freaking out.)(Ruth, panicking: Rose!? Rose. Come back here! Right Now!) (Rose runs off to rescue Jack, but Cal stops her.) (Cal, grabbing Rose with force: Where are you going?!What to him? Be a Whore to a gutter rat?) (Rose glares at Cal.) I'd rather be his whore than your wife! (Rose is about to run off, but Cal grabs her furiously.) (Cal, enraged while Rose is struggling to break free: No! I said No!) (Rose spits at Cal in his face and runs off to rescue Jack.)

(Picard is in his ready room when he hears a door chime) Come. (The door opens and Wesley Crusher enters) (Wesley: Captain.) Can you tell me what maneuver this is? (He shows the PADD to Wesley and on the screen are five ships go into a circle, cross each other's paths and light up a five pointed star.) (Wesley: It's a Kolvoord Starburst, sir.) Five ships crossing within ten meters of each other and igniting their plasma trails. One of the most spectacular and difficult demonstrations of precision flying. It hasn't been performed at the Academy team in over a hundred years. Do you know why? (Wesley: It was banned by the Academy following a training accident, sir. ) An accident in which all five cadets lost their lives. I think that Nicholas Locarno wanted to end his Academy career in a blaze of glory. That he convinced the four of you to learn the Kolvoord Starburst for the commencement demonstration. If it worked, you would thrill the assembled guests and Locarno would graduate as a living legend. Only it didn't work, and Joshua Albert paid the price. Am I correct? (Wesley doesn't answer) Cadet, I asked you a question. Am I correct? (Wesley: I choose not to answer, sir.) (sternly) You choose not to answer? But you've already given an answer to the inquiry, and that answer was a lie. (Wesley: I said the accident occurred after the loop. It did.) What you neglected to mention was that following the loop your team attempted a maneuver that was the direct cause of the crash. You told the truth up to a point. But a lie of omission is still a lie. Do you remember the day you first came aboard this ship? Your mother brought you on the Bridge. (Wesley: Yes.) You even sat in my chair. I was annoyed. Presumptuous child playing on my ship. But I never forgot how you already knew every control, every display. You behaved as though you belonged on the Bridge. And then later when I decided to make you an acting ensign, I was convinced you could be an outstanding officer. I've never questioned that conviction, until now. The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth. Whether it's scientific truth, or historical truth, or personal truth. It is the guiding principle upon which Starfleet is based. If you can't find it within yourself to stand up and tell the truth about what happened you don't deserve to wear that uniform! I'm going to make this simple for you, Mister Crusher. Either you come forward and tell Admiral Brand what really took place, or I will. (Wesley: Captain-) Dismissed! (Wesley leaves the ready room as Picard watches him leave.)
~ Captain Picard confronting Cadet Wesley Crusher about the forbidden Kolvoord Starburst maneuver which caused the deaths of the five pilots who first tried it (and how Joshua Albert only died) and reprimands Wesley for telling a lie to Admiral Brand about the accident, threatening to expose the truth himself if Wesley doesn't.

I've been saying this for years!Stan:Well it's not like we're nice to him. I mean, we rip on him all the time!Kyle:Yes, but he thrives on that.Stan:All right. Then let's just ignore him. From now on, let's not talk to him, let's not even acknowledge him.Kenny:(Fuck yeah!)Kyle:That sounds great!
~ Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski and Kenny McCormick putting the foot down to never speak to Eric Cartman because he eat all the skin of every chicken on KFC

[Tommy and his partners are tossing toilet paper on a house and some trees when Sonny, Sarah, and Sam come running towards them.] (Sonny: Tommy!) (Sam: Tommy!) (Bully #2: What do these idiots want?) (Tommy: I'll take care of this.) (Sonny: Tommy, we need that book!) (Sam: It's really important!) (Tommy: Hey, hey, what book?) (Sonny: The one you stole from us, Tommy.) (Tommy: Aw, yeah. I've got it right here.) (Sonny: Oh, really?) (Tommy: No, idiot. Why would I be carrying a book around with me on Halloween? Now, go back home with your babysitter. I'll be there in a little bit to egg your house.) [Sarah becomes deeply offended by this insult.] Listen, you little punk! I'm not the babysitter, I'm Sonny's sister. And you're gonna give us that book back or I will make your life a living hell, and the only thing you will be using that toilet paper for is to wipe your- (Tommy, terrified: Okay, okay! God, you don't have to be so mean about it. [to his friends] Let's get out of here. [to Sonny, Sarah, and Sam] The book's at my house, in my room.)
~ Sarah Quinn putting her foot down on Tommy Madigan's stubbornness and threatening to make his life a living nightmare unless he surrenders Haunted Halloween.
(After Wesley had the colonists to riot against the away team, Picard confronts him in the observation lounge.) Inexcusable! You defied the orders of the ranking officer on the scene! You put the lives of the entire away team in jeopardy, and you made an already tense situation worse! Your actions reflect very badly on this ship and on that uniform. Now, I want an explanation, Mister Crusher, and I want it now. (Wesley: What you're doing down there is wrong. These people are not some random group of colonists. They're a unique culture with a history that predates the Federation and Starfleet.) That does not alter the fact that my orders are to- (Wesley, defiantly: I know Admiral Necheyev gave you an order, and she was given an order from the Federation Council. But it's still wrong.) That decision is not yours to make, Cadet. I don't know what has got into you lately, and frankly right now I don't care. But I will tell you this. While you wear that uniform, you will obey every order you're given and you will conform to Starfleet regulations and rules of conduct. Is that clear? (Wesley: Yes, sir, it is. But I won't be wearing this uniform any longer. I'm resigning from the Academy.) (Wesley puts his comm. badge on the table and leaves the room.)
~ Captain Picard warning Cadet Wesley Crusher of his actions after he caused the colonists to riot against the away team, as well as his attitude problems, resulting Wesley to quit the Academy.
(All of the Whos in Whoville wake up on Christmas morning, seeing that everything is stolen by the Grinch) (Mayor Augustus Maywho: Well, I wonder who could have done this. I'll tell you people one thing: Invite the Grinch, destroy Christmas. (angrily pounds his bed like a spoiled child, which startles the crowd) INVITE THE GRINCH, DESTROY CHRISTMAS!!! (calms down for a bit, but resumes his anger) But did anyone listen to me?) (Mayor's assistant: I did.) (Mayor Augustus Maywho: No. You choose to listen to a little not-to-be-taken-seriously girl! Who hasn't even grown into her nose yet. Cindy, I hope you're very proud of what you've done.) (The crowd stares in silent at the Mayor's outburst. Lou Lou Who is deeply offended at the Mayor's harsh treatment towards his daughter. Mayor Maywho waves his finger at Cindy in disappointment. Cindy sulks sadly and slowly begins to cry until her father walks up to her side) (Lou Lou Who: If she isn't, I am! I'm glad he took the presents.) (The crowd gasps) (Mayor Augustus Maywho: What?!) (Lou Lou Who: Well, uh, well, I'm, I'm glad.) (Mayor Augustus Maywho: He's glad. You're glad. You're glad that everything is, is gone. You're glad that the Grinch virtually wrecked, no, not wrecked, pulverized Christmas. Is that what I'm hearing from you, Lou?) (Lou Lou Who: You can't hurt Christmas, Mr. Mayor. Because it isn't about the gifts or the contests or the fancy lights. That's what Cindy's been trying to tell everyone. (Cindy smiles happily at her father) And me. She's been trying to telling me.) (Mayor Augustus Maywho: What is wrong with you?! This is a child!) (Lou Lou Who: She's my child. And she happens to be right, by the way. (Soon, the crowd begins to understand what Cindy had been trying to convey and they all smile) l don't need anything more for Christmas than this right here, my family. Merry Christmas, everybody!) (Everyone begins hugging each other and wishing one another a Merry Christmas.) (Betty Lou Who: Merry Christmas, you hunk of burning who!) (Betty and Lou share a kiss. Mayor Maywho is not entirely amused at what he's seeing around him.) (Mayor Augustus Maywho: Oh, give me a break.)

(Stan, trying to reason with his mother: But Mom, all the guys are going to Cartman's Grandma's for the weekend!) I'm sorry, Stanley, I can't let you go all the way to Nebraska by yourself. It's the holidays. (Stan: But all the other guys get to go to Cartman's Grandma's; why can't I?) I'll leave it up to your father. (Randy, shrugging: Eh, it's fine with me.) (Sharon ignores him.) The answer is no, Stanley! Now go wash up for supper! (Stan, defiantly: I don't want your lame-ass supper!) (Shelly, disgusted: Ew! You're gonna get it now.)
