* In one episode of ''Series/FaceOff'', Glenn (the judge known for [[DeadpanSnarker snarky comments]]) says "I don't like this. I love it." The best part is he said the "I don't like this" with a ''completely'' straight face, giving the impression he was about to tear into the makeup. A Next On clip, in a fine example of ManipulativeEditing, only showed the "I don't like this" and a cut to a ''different'' contestant's unhappy reaction.

** In the spin-off, Series/{{Angel}} is giving an apparent PatrickStewartSpeech to the villain, saying he might have all the power, but the one thing he'll never have is friends. "Four of them. Standing behind you holding big, heavy things." The villain whirls round, only to get clubbed unconscious by the rest of Team Angel.
