You're two robots will not get along.

 

Cassandra is saying "YOU ARE two robots will not get along." Presumably that's not what was intended to be said.

Hmm.....sometimes I don't get along perfectly with my palindromedary but I don't think either of us is a robot let alone both...

"Listen. What do you hear?"

 

"Nothing."

 

"I hear everything. You wrote that the world doesn't need a savior. But everyday I hear people crying for one."---Superman Returns

 

Just because there aren't any heroes--super or otherwise--to save the day doesn't mean the day doesn't need to be saved.  Just because no one hears the cries for help doesn't mean that no one is crying out.  If it's depressing to live in a world where the day constantly needs to be saved--how much more depressing would it be if no one was there to save it?

 

After all--what if Superman hadn't returned?

The depressing thing about living in a world where superheroes are constantly saving the day is that this means we are living in a world where the day constantly needs saving.

No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for... for ten minutes!

If you are Evil Twin, sometimes you will be mistaken for the heroic other and be forced to play along for some reason or another.

 

That's just what they want you to think.

Actually, this is what I had in mind--

 

"Lex?'

 

"Mmm-hmm?"

 

"Are billions of people really going to die?"

 

"Yes."

 

And they would have--if not for Superman.
