->''"Itís worth noting that ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan The Wrath of Khan]]'' plays as fast and as loose with continuity as JJ Abramsí reboot, demonstrating that the ''Star Trek'' canon was never quite as sacrosanct as various fans want to believe. This was a show which couldnít decide who was paying Kirkís wages for most of the first season, let alone that he didnít actually receive any wages. The most obvious other continuity goof here is the suggestion that Khan remembers Chekov from Space Seed (''ďI never forget a face!Ē''), despite the fact that Chekov wasnít actually a part of the cast at the time...Walter Koenig famously jokes that Chekov [[PottyEmergency once held up a toilet when Khan really needed to go]], leading to a life-long vendetta."''

->'''Cracked''': Once, back when you looked more like [[TheOtherDarrin the guy from Seabiscuit]] and less like [[Crator/AndrewGarfield the only likeable character in The Social Network]], you were talking to Mary Jane outside your house. But then she got in a fancy car driven by her boyfriend. So you decided to buy a car to impress her, but they were too expensive. So you entered a wrestling competition, but the owner stiffed you on your prize money. Because of that, you let a thief escape with his money. Because of that, Uncle Ben died. There's [[StoryArc a very clear sequence of events]] that anyone paying attention can follow. For comparison, last week you fought Electro, who was mad at you for [[FelonyMisdemeanor missing his birthday]]. After you defeated him, you went home and watched TV for a while. Then you decided to investigate your father's disappearance because you were [[TantrumThrowing mad at his briefcase.]]\\\

->''"This dude can '''control and create electricity with his brain''', which by all rights makes him one of the most powerful people on the face of the Earth. Patrick Stewart and [=Ian McKellen=] should be straight up wrestling in his front yard to determine who gets to recruit him. And yet, he just cold gets dropped without Sabretooth [[{{Redshirt}} even breaking stride]]. Seriously: How is this guy not just kept in a room in case they ever need to just instantly murder IronMan?"''

'''Shinzon:''' Did you sleep well? I did; I'm 12 hours closer to death! Now, let me [[{{Padding}} waste even more time]] by talking to you about my childhood. The Romulans cloned you to create me, then stuck me in the dilithium mines and abused me for years. This is why I now seek to bring glory to the Romulan Empire by ... Sweet Mother of God, I can't believe I'm in this shitty movie.
