    Cooper: Surefire cure for a hangover, Harry. You take a glass of nearly frozen, unstrained tomato juice. You plop a couple of oysters in there and you drink it down. Breathe deeply. Next you take a mound and I mean a mound of sweetbreads sauteed with some Canadian bacon and chestnuts. Finally some biscuits, big biscuits, smothered in gravy. Now here’s where it gets tricky, you’re gonna need some anchovies. You take -
    Truman: (dry-heaving) Excuse me.

    From 30 Rock 7.13 “Last Lunch” -
    Lutz: I printed out the Blimpies menu.
    Toofer: Okay, how about this. Yesterday, a bunch of us came in to clean out our desks. More than half of us.
    Frank: Yes, a quorum!
    Toofer: And you weren’t here, Lutz!
    Frank: And lunch rule precedent states that disputes will be resolved by picking a new name. Toofer, the can!
    Toofer: Gladly.
    Frank (draws another name) What the hell? It’s stuck to me! Oh God, and it’s Lutz (everyone groans) Why’s it so sticky?
    Lutz: I wrote it on flypaper. I’m five steps ahead of you, you sons of b**ches! Blimpies!

    The Doctor: They’re trying to help.
    Davros: Already I have seen them sacrifice today for their beloved Doctor. The Earth woman who fell opening the Subwave Network.
    The Doctor: Who was that?
    Rose: Harriet Jones. She gave her life to get you here.
    Davros: How many more? Just think! How many have died in your name? The Doctor. The man who keeps running, never looking back because he dare not, out of shame. This is my final victory, Doctor. I have shown you yourself.

    From GoT 1.09 “Baelor” -
    Eddard: Can you free me from this pit?
    Varys: I could. But will I? No. As I said, I’m no hero.
    Eddard: What do you want? Tell me, no stories, no riddles. Tell me, what do you want?
    Varys: Peace. Did you know that your son is marching south with an army of northmen? Loyal lad, fighting for his father’s freedom.
    Eddard: Robb? He’s just a boy.
    Varys: Boys have been conquerers before. But the man giving Cersei sleepless nights is the king’s…the late king’s brother. Lord Stannis has the best claim to the throne; he’s a proven battle commander and he is utterly without mercy.
    Eddard: Stannis Baratheon is Robert’s true heir. The throne is his by rights!
    Varys: Sansa pleaded so sweetly for your life, it would be a shame to throw it away. Cersei is no fool. She knows a tame wolf is more use to her than a dead one.
    Eddard: You want me to serve the woman who murdered my king, who butchered my men, who crippled my son?!
    Varys: I want you to serve the realm! Tell the Queen you will confess your vile treason, tell your son to lay down his sword and proclaim Joffrey as the true heir! Cersei knows you as a man of honor; if you give her the peace she needs, and promise to carry her secret to your grave, I believe she will allow you to take the black and live out your days on the Wall, with your brother and your bastard son.
    Eddard: You think my life is some precious thing to me? That I would trade my honor for a few more years of…of what?! You grew up with actors; you learned their craft and you learnt it well. But I grew up with soldiers. I learned how to die a long time ago.
    Varys: Pity. Such a pity. What of your daughter’s life, my lord? Is that a precious thing to you?
