"I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Sherlock Holmes; I enjoy his use of logic, reasoning and observational skills. I like that he is an independent thinker and independent of any authority. His knowledge and skills cover a wide range from forensic research to monographs on types of tobacco. At the same time he is a flawed character, unable or unwilling to get involved in intimate relationships and addicted to narcotics.
- Moriarty; As Holmes says, without Moriarty there would be no Holmes.
- Spock; I admire his ability to not show emotion, to be strong at all times and to always make the right decision regardless of its unpopularity.
- Columbo; I wish I could be as modest as Columbo. For although he appears to be a bumbling fool, quite often he will outwit the most fiendish of adversary. And he does it in the most self deprecating way.
- Peter Griffin; Zany, whacky, live for today attitude. The funniest yet most annoying laugh. Willing to do anything no matter how damned stupid it is.
- Stuey Griffin; Although he is anti-social, his plots and methods are so childish that they can be scuppered by Brian the dog (such as him surrounding himself in a lair of cardboard boxes which he declares to be inpenetrable, and Brian simply knocking them over).
- Monty Burns; Outright evil, there are lots of amusing moments especially when we find out he holds a chair at Springfield University (cut to demonic throne with snarling dogs chained to it).
- The Dude; From the film the Big Lebowski. Provider of many a great quote and seemingly always right.
- R.P. McMurphy; From the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Willing to buck the system, through raw will power, strength of personality, imagination and daring, although unfortunately beaten by the combine in the end.
- Lieutenant Dan; From the film Forrest Gump. Looks death in the face, and learns to live with his incomplete self. Faces down God , survives and becomes a better person.
