From Red Dwarf- I think it is even quoted someplace in this thread.

Holly: Good morning David it is now safe for you to emerge from stasis.
Lister: I've only just gone in.
Holly: Please report to the drive room for de-briefing.
Lister: Where is everybody Hol?
Holly: They're dead Dave!
Lister: Who is?
Holly: Everybody Dave!
Lister: What Captain Holester?
Holly: Everybody Dave!
Lister: What Todd Hunter?
Holly: Everybody Dave!
Lister: What Selby?
Holly: They're all dead everybody's dead Dave
Lister: Peterson isn't; Is he?
Holly: Everybody's dead Dave!
Lister: Not Chen
Holly: Yes Chen Everybody. Everybody's dead Dave!
Lister: Rimmer?
Holly: Yes Rimmer. Everybody is dead. Everybody is dead Dave!
Lister: Wait; Are you trying to tell me everybody's dead?

“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“If I accept you as you are, I will make you worse; however if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming, I help you become that”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Only by joy and sorrow does a person know anything about themselves and their destiny. They learn what to do and what to avoid.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"That which does not kill us makes us stronger."
-Friedrich Nietzsche
