TOM WEXLER GRAHAM, Jack & Bobby (2004)
You know, my apathy is palpable at this point.
CROW, Mystery Science Theater 3000, "Overdrawn at the Memory Bank" (1997)
I'll tell you who your enemy is, gentleman. Apathy. Passivity. Indifference. And yes...uh...also those red guys.
CAPTAIN BUTCH FLOWERS, Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles, "Silver Linings" (2005)
I'm Captain Apathy. I have all the powers of a superhero but absolutely no will to use them.
CAPTAIN APATHY, Sketch Pad (2001)
People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy, and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I'm flesh and blood. I can be ignored. I can be destroyed. But as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.
BRUCE WAYNE, Batman Begins (2005)
I'm curious...is it strictly apathy, or do you really not have a goal in life?
KATE VEATCH, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004)
Apathy is the solution. I mean, it's easier to lose yourself in drugs than it is to cope with life. It's easier to steal what you want than it is to earn it. It's easier to beat a child than it is to raise it. Hell, love costs, it takes effort and work.
WILLIAM SOMERSET, Se7en (1995)
All the world's great civilizations have followed the same path. From bondage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy back to bondage. If we are to be the exception to history, then we must break the cycle. For those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
MOLLY JOHNSON, Swing Vote (2008)
What sems to me a, in a sense, very terrifying aspect of our society, and of other societies, is the equanimity and the detachment with which sane, reasonable, sensible people can observe such events. I think that's more terrifying than the occasional Hitler or LeMay or other that crops up. These people would not be able to operate were it not for this apathy and equanimity. And therefore I think that it's in some sense the sane and reasonable and tolerant people who share a very serious burden of guilt, which they very easily throw on the shoulders of others who seem more extreme or more violent.
