Am I Right?

A Stock Phrase used by the group comedian, usually after some kind of wry observation. The dialogue equivalent of facing the camera and waggling your eyebrows. Usually used after an intentionally lame line.

  • Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender has been known to say this
  • Bubs from Homestar Runner used this during a Halloween episode while performing standup comedy, followed by the immortal line "Am I left?" (which Strong Mad found hilarious)

    The Simpsons episode The Homer They Fall with some Indians at a Bonanza reunion.

    Indian: "Thank you. I just wish Ben and Hoss and Little Joe and Hop Sing and Sheriff Roy and all your favorites could be alive today to see this wonderful turnout. You know, on the series, we were always trying to kill the Cartwrights. But it looks like Father Time took care of that for us, right? Am I right, folks?"
