I Can’t Get No Satisfaction – Apocalypse Now

"Good morning Vietnam. This is Zack Johnson on AFVN.
It's about 82 degrees in downtown Saigon and right now
very humid. And we have a important message for all GI's
living off-base from the mayor of Saigon. He'd like you to
hang your laundry indoors, instead of on the windows.
The mayor wants you to keep Saigon beautiful... 
And now here's another blast from the past coming out to 
Big Cind, all alone in the mantle room out there with the First 
Battalion Thirty-fifth Infantry, and dedicated by the fire team 
at An Khe to their groupie CO Fred the Head: The Rolling
Stones' Satisfaction."

Dexter Season 8: Tease – Behind a Mask

…Siempre –decía– llevamos una máscara, una máscara que nunca es la misma si no que cambia para cada uno de los papeles que tenemos asignados en la vida: la del profesor, la del amante, la del intelectual, la del marido engañado, la del héroe, la del hermano cariñoso. Pero, ¿qué máscara nos ponemos o qué máscara nos queda cuando estamos en soledad, cuando creemos que nadie, nadie, nos observa, nos controla, nos escucha, nos exige, nos suplica, nos intima, nos ataca? Acaso el carácter sagrado de ese instante se deba a que el hombre está entonces frente a la Divinidad, o por lo menos ante su propia e implacable conciencia. Y tal vez nadie perdone el ser sorprendido en esa última y esencial desnudez de su rostro, la más terrible y la más esencial de las desnudeces, porque muestra el alma sin defensa…..
