Added DiffLines:

* PungeonMaster: Beetlejuice, especially when he shapeshifts. (For instance, he "uses his noodle" to deal with one villain, turning into a living plate of spaghetti and meatballs, then saying "Pasta Lavista!" as he leaves.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Robbin Juice of Sherweird Forest", Beetlejuice summons the Monster Across the Street and Flubbo to the forest to be his "Merry Men" without warning. It's particularly inconvenient for Flubbo, who apparently was in the shower.

Added DiffLines:

* INeedToGoIronMyDog: In "Robbin Juice of Sherweird Forest", Beetlejuice isn't really interested in helping the peasants: "Listen, I'd like to avenge the oppressed as much as the next guy, Lyds, but... I gotta get home and feed my fish. To my piranha."
** During the flashback in "Highs Ghoul Confidential", young Beetlejuice tries to ask a female skeleton to the prom. She literally laughs her head off and says she'll be washing her hair.


Added DiffLines:

** "I don't think I like this guy" said by Beetlejuice and later the Sheriff of Rottingham regarding Alan Airedale.

Added DiffLines:

* IronicEcho: Done twice in "Robbin Juice of Sherweird Forest":
** "Couldn't they find a better picture [of him]?" regarding Beetlejuice's wanted posters. First said by the ghost himself because he's smiling in it, then later by the evil Prince John Don Juan when comparing it to [[spoiler:Lydia, who he'd captured by then]].


Added DiffLines:

* RhymingWithItself: Alan Airedale's introduction during "[[RobinHood Robbin Juice]] of Sherweird Forest":
-->"My name is Alan Airedale, and I'm a traveling minstrel,
-->I'm here to tell your story in song..." (sings faster) "but I can't think of anything that rhymes with 'minstrel'"

* PunnyName: Many of the side characters, especially those who only appear once, have these. Examples include Clarence Sale, the Sheriff of Rottingham, and three of the four aunts from "Relatively Pesty" - Auntie Pasto, Auntie Septic, and Auntie Social. Some of the more clever puns probably went over kids' heads, serving as extra helpings of ParentalBonus.
