[to Thomas King] I still see things that are not here. I just choose not to acknowledge them. Like a diet of the mind, I just choose not to indulge certain appetites; like my appetite for patterns; perhaps my appetite to imagine and to dream.

Nash

The prodigal roommate arrives.

Charles

People don't want a hero, they want to eat cheeseburgers, play the lotto and watch television.

William Somerset

Nash: Well, Martin Hansen. It is Martin, isn't it?
Hansen: Why yes, John, it is.
Nash: I assume you've gotten quite used to miscalculation. I read your pre-prints. Both of 'em. One on Nazi scientists and the other one on, uh... non-linear equations, and I'm extremely confident that there's not one seminal or innovative idea in either one of them... Enjoy your punch.

Nash

Nash: She's so small.
Charles: Well, she's young, John. That's how they come.

Hunt them down. Do not stop until they are found. You do not know pain, you do not know fear. You will taste man-flesh.

Saruman
