Whoohoo!! :-D

Okay, let's crack open the graphic novel (yeah, I have it sitting on my work desk. . . what? Don't look at me like that! ;-)). . . .

"Give me smallest finger on man's hand. I'll produce information. "

I LOVE that one!

He has this weird sense of humor that's freaking brilliant. Which brings me to:

"That's right. Human bean juice, haha"

(Mine is sitting next to my bed because I love to read it before I go to sleep. Wrong?)

He DOES have a very warped sense of humor. Like when he kills Big Figure's henchman with the toilet, and is clearly amused by the idea of getting rid of filth with a toilet. (Does not have comic at work. Boss' desk is right across from hers.)

"Hurrm. Never disposed of sewage with a toilet before. Obvious, really."

"Waiting for a flash of enlightenment in all this blood and thunder."

Best. Quote. Ever. I nearly got this tattooed on me. It is THAT beautiful.

That would be a great tattoo.

I find it really hard to decide on one favorite quote, but if I could, that would probably be the one. It's beautiful.

AND THEY CUT IT FROM THE MOVIE. If I ever meet Jackie Earle Haley, I will ask him to say that line. I don't care if it's creepy. I'll bring a tape recorder and everything.

"It's nothing personal, Mr. Haley, but I need that line to be said by you in The Voice."

"Tanks are in East Berlin and writing is on wall. For my own part, regret nothing. Have lived life free from compromise... and step into the shadow now without complaint."

I am kind of alarmed by how much of this comic I have memorized.

That one stuck with me so much- reason why I had to use it for my layout here.

Again, so much meaning behind those words, it's just a perfect synthesis of his system of morality, and his way of life. It's perfect and yet so sad.

Do you think we have a chance of it being in the Director's cut?" If not we really need to start campaigning for him to record that quote in the Rorschach voice. Because him saying "Waiting for a flash of enlightenment.." would make me so very happy.

Him saying that line could bring about World Peace. For real. In my mind.

I agree, this needs to happen.

I even think he could possibly do it XD

Okay, here's another, but it's a sad one.

"Of course. Must protect Veidt's new utopia. One more body amongst the foundations makes little difference."

It's such a powerful statement, so eloquent. That's one thing about Walter that I've always loved, that when he was in school, he was very adept at literature and religious studies. And you can see that influence in his journal, definitely.

omg, this.

I like the fact that he is not just some killing machine brute who lives on the streets. Every time he writes or speaks you can definitely see that influence in him.

The one that started this whole deal:

“Some of us have always lived on edge, Daniel. It is possible to survive there if you observe rules. Just hang on by fingernails and never look down”.

You have a nice long post below this one to see what I think. I'm that bitchy awesome. XD

"No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us."

One of my personal faves. Also, I totally forgot about the blood and thunder one. It's kind of chilling in a weird way.

And yeah, Rorschach's sense of humour is very understated, which is why I love it. Here's another good example:

"Don't worry. Won't insult legendary underworld solidarity by suggesting you surrender name without torture."

"Don't worry. Won't insult legendary underworld solidarity by suggesting you surrender name without torture."

I think the first time I read the GN I actually laughed aloud at that line.

And the whole speech he gives to Dr Long is simply brilliant.

I like the line that goes something like this...

"The fear ibn his eyes...sometimes th night is generous to me..."

Is it wrong that I find this line sexy? >w>
