1. Gossip Girl (2007 TV Series)
Episode: Much 'I Do' About Nothing (2008)
I could not agree more. I just need to take a break away from everything and everyone.
Break a leg!
When I told my mom not to go away with Rufus, it was cause I said you and I are forever... and I know I'm right.
Wow, clearly I missed something while I was away. A little advice fellas, you've been friends a long time, whoever she is she's not worth it.
Well you won't have to witness any of it. I'm locking myself away in the Hamptons house, well it is a summer to reflect alone.
Ha, break a leg.
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Once More, with Feeling (2001)
Clearly our number is a retro-pastiche that's never going to be a break-away pop hit.
Thought you wanted me to stay away from you. Isn't that what you sang?
I've been having a bad bad day. Come on, won't you put that pad away? I'm asking you please no. It isn't right, it isn't fair. There was no parking anywhere. I think that hydrant wasn't there. Why can't you let it go? I think I've paid more than my share. I'm just a poor girl, don't you care? Hey, I'm not wearing underwear!
Well, if we hear any inspirational power chords, we'll just lie down until they go away.
pulled to you so helplessly. I break with every swell.
Well, we just gotta break it down. Look at the factors before it happens again. Because I for one...
3. Trainspotting (1996)
I quite enjoyed the sound of it all. Profit, loss, margins, takeovers, lending, letting, subletting, subdividing, cheating, scamming, fragmenting, breaking away. There was no such thing as society and even if there was, I most certainly had nothing to do with it. For the first time in my adult life I was almost content.
Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?
It seems, however, I really am the luckiest guy in the world. Several years of addiction right in the middle of an epidemic, surrounded by the living dead. But not me. I'm negative. It's official. And once the pain goes away, that's when the real battle starts. Depression, boredom... You feel so fucking low, you want to fucking top yourself.
He starts getting these headaches. So he just uses more smack, you know, for the pain. And then he has a stroke. A fucking stroke, just like that. Gets home from the hospital and dies three weeks later. He'd been dead for ages before the neighbors complained about the smell and got the police to break down the door. Tommy was lying facedown in a pool of vomit.
Straight away, he clocked us for what we were, small time wasters with an accidental big deal.

5. Full House (1987 TV Series)
Episode: Jingle Hell (1988)
Scared of not making it. You don't know how hard it was to break away from my father and leave the family business. The thought of me crawling back, killing bugs again. Admitting that I failed. I just don't know if I'm good enough.
6. Firefly (2002 TV Series)
Episode: Heart of Gold (2003)
I learned something from Nandi, not just from what happened, but from her. The family she made, the strength of her love for them, it's what kept them together. When you live with that kind of strength, you get tied to it. You can't break away, and you never want to. There's something - there's something I should've done a long while ago. And I'm sorry, for both of us, that it took me this long. I'm leaving.
Math just don't add up. Our weapon store aren't exactly overpowerin' at the moment, and I don't much like what we'd be up against. Nothing worse than a monster who thinks he's right with God. We might turn Burgess away once, but he'll keep comin' - won't stop 'till he gets what he thinks is his. So we run.
7. Day of the Dead (1985)
I know. Sarah told me. I'm sorry. I couldn't break away. Is there food?
You think I'm not aware of our situation? You think I want to stay isolated down here? You know, I'd make a desperate effort to raise somebody in hopes of getting away from your nasty mouth Steel! But the fact is... the fact is, either we are the only ones left, or there's no one within range my puny Second World War radio signals.
If we get a lot more or if they might break down the fence, you can come out and shoot some of them. Otherwise say inside the building. Stay out of sight!
8. A Tale of Two Cities (1935)
Break away, then. I don't care an English tuppence for myself; but I know that the longer I keep you here... the greater hope there is for my ladybird.
Pig, get out of my way or I'll break you in pieces.
9. Babylon 5 (1994 TV Series)
In breaking away from Earth, we have begun a difficult and uncertain journey, and none of us can see its end, but our cause remains a just one. That truth honours and sanctifies our fallen comrades who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might carry on the work that is ahead of us. We are gathered here today to honour their memory and their names.
It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last, best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5.
10. Babylon 5 (1994 TV Series)
Episode: Walkabout (1996)
Sorry, we didn't sign that treaty. You got a problem, call Earth. If they hadn't forced us to break away, we wouldn't need a mutual protection agreement. We take every ship we can get.
The same guarantee I gave you when I said that none of the other Narns would break into your room in the middle of the night and slit your throat.
11. Babylon 5 (1994 TV Series)
Episode: Severed Dreams (1996)
Major, the ships receiving the attack order were already on their way here. He doesn't want to risk Babylon 5 breaking away. So those ships are ordered to seize command of Babylon 5, arrest and detain its captain and the rest of the command staff, and to put the station under the direct authority of President Clark and the Nightwatch.
May I have your attention please. In the last few hours, we have learned that warships are coming this way from Earth. Their orders are to seize command of Babylon 5 by force. As commanding officer and military governor of Babylon 5, I cannot allow this to happen. President Clark has violated the Earth Alliance Constitution: by dissolving the Senate, declaring martial law, and *personally* ordering the bombing of civilian targets on the Mars colony. He is *personally* responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent people. Following these attacks, Orion 7 and Proxima 3 have broken away from the Earth Alliance, and declared independence. Babylon 5 now joins with them. As of this moment, Babylon 5 is seceding from the Earth Alliance. We will remain an independent state till President Clark is removed from office. At the end of this current crisis, anyone who wishes to leave for Earth is free to do so. Meanwhile for your own safety, I urge everyone to stay in your quarters until this is over. That is all.
As was prophesied. We must stand with the others now before it's too late. Between the Worker Caste and the Religious Caste, we control two thirds of our forces. To you, I say, listen to the voice of your conscience. Break the council and come with me. Our time of isolation is over. We move now, together or not at all.
If you think it would be any help, we could try to jump, maybe draw some of the fire away from Babylon 5, give you a chance to negotiate.
Bad news people. We are five hours away from a crisis situation. I just received a narrow-band transmission from the Alexander.

15. Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color (1954 TV Series)
Episode: Daniel Boone: The Warrior's Path (1960)
Down through the ages, man has been impelled, for one reason or another, to break away from the established order of things and push beyond the boundaries of civilization to find out what was on the other side of the mountain or the other side of the sea. The Norsemen set out for conquest, Columbus to prove a theory, Henry Hudson to find the Northwest Passage, and now our modern astronauts to find out not to what's on the other side of the mountain, but on the other side of the Moon. These men were, and are, the trailblazers, the first to venture into the realm of the unknown in their respective fields. Here in America, we've had many famous trailblazers; Ponce de León, Cortés, La Salle, Lewis and Clark. But perhaps the most famous trailblazer of them all was Daniel Boone, the hero of our adventure series based on the life of the famous frontiersman. In 1753, the whole of the Ohio River Valley was an unexplored wilderness which no white man had seen. The Indians called it "Kentucke," and rumors of its fertility and abundance of game drifted back to the ears of young Boone in North Carolina and so excited his imagination, he had to see it. Now, Daniel didn't need much encouragement. A born hunter-trapper with an itchy foot, he needed plenty of elbow room and it was getting crowded in Yadkin Valley. Why, he complained, on a clear day, he could see the chimney smoke of his nearest neighbor some six miles away. So with his famous "Tick-Licker" rifle, Boone headed west. In our opening story, you will see how this restless adventurer was lead into the fabled land of Kentucke, sacred hunting grounds of the Indians, by an old trader who had discovered their secret passage through the mountains. The Indians called it "The Warrior's Path," and that's the title of this story.

19. Star Trek: Of Gods and Men (2007 Video)
Captain's personal log, Stardate 6712.4. As head of Starfleet Linguistic, my recent assignments have been most rewarding. So much so, I'm finding it hard to believe it's been forty years since I was first assigned to the Enterprise under Captain Kirk's command. I should be elated to attend the ceremonies honoring his accomplishments, but the memory of his passing twelve years ago is still very painful. And it doesn't help that my dear friend Scotty is still missing. Or that Sulu is away in the Gamma Quadrant for the next three years. Or that McCoy and Spock won't be able to break away from their negotiations with the Klingons. All this has made me realize that something is... missing in my life. Perhaps though, seeing some old friends attending the dedication of a very special ship is exactly what I need. Something we all need.
20. Freakazoid! (1995 TV Series)

Listen here. You're living in a fool's paradise. You intend to spend ten dollars to buy this woman a ring? Look at this. It's solid brass and a buck and a half takes it away. What do you say? I know it'll fit her. I got it from the nose of a savage.
