** In his review of ''Film/BabyGeniuses 2'', he spends most of the episode in a [[spoiler:fake]] coma. At one point, guest stars Brentalfloss and Uncle Yo have to pull an OfCorpseHesAlive routine for a convention Q&A, and when asked which review the Nostalgia Critic preferred, they immediately nominated the ones they themselves participated in, described themselves as "devilishly handsome", and eventually got into a slap fight.

--> '''The Critic(As Kit):''' I heard you were rescued by a dashing, well-endowed purple man.

Hang on, he's actually telling me right now...yes? What is it? Oh, okay. He says this occasionally overlaps with the trope HoldingBothSidesOfTheConversation, where one person pretends to be two people at once. He also mentioned the Internet version of creating a SockPuppet identity. It also applies to cases where a member of Group X in disguise defends Group X--a SweetPollyOliver objecting to an insult to women, for instance, or an undercover spy speaking up for his home country. At least, I'm sure that's what But He Sounds Handsome would say. What a great trope. However, I've heard--I'm not speaking from direct experience, of course--that But He Sounds Handsome is only slightly related to a common joke wherein a character makes a joke of complimenting his Doppleganger, his RidiculouslySuccessfulFutureSelf or [[IHatePastMe his otherwise pathetic past self]], his IdenticalStranger, [[TwinTropes or just his plain ordinary identical twin]] for being remarkably handsome.

'''Ted:''' Mosby, sir? I, I... I hear Mosby's doing some great work.
'''Brady:''' Fine, Mosby can stay. But tell him he's on thin ice. Come here. [Pinches Ted's cheeks] I like you, Crosby.
