The Big O (1999–2003)
Steve Blum: Roger Smith
Roger Smith : We have choices. Some people like to stand in the rain without an umbrella. That's what it means to live free.
Roger Smith : Big O! Show time!
Beck Gold : Oopsy-daisy!
[Beck turns on magnet with his heel. Dorothy begins to get pulled up to the magnet]
Roger Smith : Dorothy!
Beck Gold : Don't worry, I have plans for her, too. I'll put her control system to good use.
Roger Smith : Don't you dare!
Beck Gold : Oh shut your trap! You have humiliated me exactly HOW MANY TIMES? Not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES! Well, you're not gonna do it anymore!
[Beck opens Dorothy's hairband CD drive]
Roger Smith : No, Dorothy!
[Beck sees Dorothy's CD drive with a lock on it]
Beck Gold : Huh?
R. Dorothy Wayneright : You never learn, do you?
Roger Smith : My name is Roger Smith. I perform a much needed job here in this city of amnesia.
Roger Smith : People are not ruled by their memories!
Roger Smith : Big O! Showtime!
Roger Smith : Big O! And action!
Roger Smith : Well, I do have some household rules, Dorothy, and while living here you're obligated to observe every one of them.
R. Dorothy Wayneright : What kind of rules?
Roger Smith : The first one is a rule that even I follow. If you stay here, then you wear black.
R. Dorothy Wayneright : Your sense of fashion, Roger... really reeks.
[Roger is confronted by the serial killer R-D in the train tunnel, and is trying to figure out the "D" in her name]
Roger Smith : "R" stands for "Red". What's the "D"?
Red Destiny : That's what being commanded means.
Roger Smith : [confused] Death? Devil? Dark?
Red Destiny : Destiny!
Roger Smith : Destiny?
Red Destiny : Who commands YOU, Roger Smith?
Roger Smith : No one commands me!
Red Destiny : Then WHY do you pilot it?
Roger Smith : Are you talking about the Megadeus?
Red Destiny : They are the sacred chariots of mankind. Those who pilot them are intended to be commanded. If you admit that you are not, then you must PERISH!
[She raises her gun to fire, but Roger hurls his flashlight at her, hitting her in the head and making her lose balance]
