- Stokely Carmichael during the "March Against Fear" in Mississippi

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now."

Robin: "Holy metronome! What a fate - punched into player piano  
           rolls!"

Batman: "True, Robin. Scarcely an end I'd rather anticipate. Life -            a cupful of surprises to the last drop!"
 

Robin: "Boy! That was our closest call ever! I have to admit that I was
           pretty scared."
 

Batman: "I wasn't scared in the least."
Robin: "Not at all?"
Batman: "Haven't you noticed how we always escape the vicious
           ensnarements of our enemies?"
 
Robin: "Yeah, because we're smarter than they are!"
Batman: "I like to think it's because our hearts are pure."
- dialogue from the TV show "Batman"
