Dalek: Yes, we know who you are.
Harriet Jones: Oh, you know nothing of any human. And that will be your downfall.

Assistant DA Rachel Dawes, The Dark Knight

“You make your own luck.”

Secretary of State Elaine Barrish, Political Animals

“I’m sick to death of the bullshit and the egos and the men. I am so sick of the men, I could puke for days. I’m running for president.”

First Lady Doctor Abbey Bartlett, West Wing

Abbey: Samuel Mudd set Booth’s leg after he shot Lincoln. Doctors are liable in this country if they don’t treat the patient in front of them.
Bartlet: Just for the record, this is why we don’t talk about foreign policy, which we do, but you don’t think we do enough.
Abbey: Why?
Bartlet: Because Samuel Mudd was tried and convicted of treason for setting that leg.
Abbey: So?
Bartlet: What ‘so’?
Abbey: So, that’s the way it goes. You set the leg.
