Just another word for…what!?! — The TV Killers Counterquote Edition


FAMOUS KRIS AND JANIS QUOTE:

“Freedom's just another word for nothin’ left to lose,
Nothin’ ain’t worth nothin’, but it’s free.”
       Kris Kristofferson’s song “Me and Bobby McGee” (1969)
       Made famous by Janis Joplin’s cover version on her posthumously-released album Pearl (1971)


SERIAL KILLER SHOW COUNTERQUOTE:

“Freedom’s just another word for one more way to get f**ked.” 
       Officer Gerard (actor Scott MacDonald) on Dexter
       In the “Love American Style” episode (2006)


VAMPIRE KILLER SHOW COUNTERQUOTE:

“Can I say somethin’ about destiny? Screw destiny! If this evil thing comes, we’ll fight it and we’ll keep fightin’ it until we whup it. ‘Cause destiny is just another word for inevitable, and nothing’s inevitable as long as you stand up, look it in the eye, and say, ‘You're evitable!’”
       “Fred” Burkle (actor Amy Acker) on Angel
       In the “Offspring” episode (2001)


KILLER VAMPIRE SHOW COUNTERQUOTE:

“Just ‘cause you understand the mechanics of how something works, doesn't make it any less of a miracle...which is just another word for magic. We’re all kept alive by magic, Sookie.”
       Bill Compton (actor Stephen Moyer) on True Blood
       In the episode “Mine” (2008)


COUGAR SHOW KILLER COUNTERQUOTE:

Cougars. It would be nice to ignore this zeitgeisty American term but it keeps cropping up...Is it a term of empowerment or just another word for harpy? Should we celebrate the rise of the wild cats or try to kill a mocking word?”
       New Zealand journalist Rebecca Barry
       Commenting on the TV show Cougar Town
       In her New Zealand Herald column, Jan. 26, 2010
