POP CULTURE QUOTE OF THE WEEK

From the 2006 DOCTOR WHO episode "Love & Monsters":

At the very end of the story, told entirely as one man's videotaped document — one of only two really worthwhile episodes for the year — regular guy Elton Pope (Marc Warren) sums up his take on the world after his very, VERY bizarre experiences with extraterrestrial life forms — in which his girlfriend ends up as nothing more than a living face fused with a square of sidewalk cement, who, when Elton mentions that they still even have "sort of a love life," says, "Oh, don't mention that..." — Hey, you do the math — and I couldn't agree with him more:

"You know, when you're a kid they tell you it's all 'grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that's it.' No. The truth is, the world is so much stranger than that; it's much darker, and much madder...and so much better."

I thought the whole year was actually pretty good. I liked last years Doctor more, but overall it was entertaining.

So there.
