List of Slacker quotes.

Has Faith in Groups: You know, that's what I hate: when you start talking like this, like you just pull in these things from the shit you read, and you haven't thought it out for yourself, no bearing on the world around us, and totally unoriginal.
Based on Authoritative Sources: Okay, great. Personal attacks now, is that it? I thought we were beyond that.
Has Faith in Groups: It's like you just pasted together these bits and pieces from your "authoritative sources." I don't know. I'm beginning to suspect there's nothing really in there.
Based on Authoritative Sources: Suspect? You're beginning to suspect? Oh, that's rich, that's really rich. So what? At least what is there, is based on good sources.

Disgruntled Grad Student: Every action is a positive action, even if it has a negative result.

Hitchhiker: Every single commodity you produce is a piece of your own death!
