“Well, that’s just lazy writing.”

Who said it?: Deadpool/Wade Wilson

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes the second Deadpool film, which was released in 2018. Deadpool is Wade Wilson,a Marvel anti-hero noted for being one of the funniest comic book characters ever created. Most of the humor is derived from the fact that he knows he’s in a comic book and he breaks the fourth wall often because of it.

The quote in the middle of the film, Cable (played by Josh Brolin) goes to Deadpool/Wade Wilson (played by Ryan Reynolds) and asks for his help in order to stop Russell before he makes his first kill. Deadpool then asks Cable, since he’s a time traveler, why doesn’t he just go back further in time and stop Russell when he was a baby. Cable then explains that the further you go back in time, the more difficult it gets to control. Also, he only has one charge left and he’s saving it to get back to his present. This is when Deadpool turns to the camera and delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom:  If you don’t put in the required effort, you can bet there will be someone to call you out for it. If you want the best, you have to put out the best yourself.

“Maximum effort!”

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes the first Deadpool film, which was released in 2016. Deadpool is Wade Wilson,a Marvel anti-hero noted for being one of the funniest comic book characters ever created. Most of the humor is derived from the fact that he knows he’s in a comic book and he breaks the fourth wall often because of it.

The quote comes a couple of times in the movie but the first time it’s uttered is just before the freeway action scene. Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds) is sitting atop a network of freeways while waiting for Ajax, the man who gave him his powers. He turns to the camera and talks to the viewer for a bit before he notices Ajax’s convoy driving close. He then delivers the quote before jumping into battle.

Geek wisdom:  Always give it your all with whatever you do. This is usually the best thing you can do to achieve your goals. And even if you don’t succeed, at least you’ll know you did your best.
