''[[DescribeTopicHere Hey, I was gonna say that!]]''

Bob has a CatchPhrase and is in an situation where it's appropriate to use it, but Alice was faster and stole the catchphrase. Bonus points for Bob saying, "That's my line!"

In {{Anime}}, it can also be used to mean, "I'm the one who should be saying that to ''you.''" For example, if Alice barges into a place where she's not supposed to be, and unexpectedly finds Bob (who ''is'' supposed to be there) and says "What are you doing here!?" Bob might respond with ''[[UsefulNotes/JapaneseStockPhrases Watashi no serifu da!]]'', "That's ''my'' line." (Of course, pronouns, construction, formalness, etc. varies. Listen out for the "no serifu" every time, though.)

This is something of a stereotype in the acting profession, where leading men/ladies have been known to pinch clever lines of dialog from those of ''lesser'' billing.

If the other character isn't able to notice, then it's a BorrowedCatchphrase.

Not to be confused with ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway''.



* One of the commercials during the awfully misguided "Hare Jordan" era had Michael Jordan saying "That's all, folks" with Porky Pig indignantly retorting, "Hey, that's my line!"
* A commercial for the Capital One credit card has Jimmy Fallon speaking with a baby who doesn't like 50% more cash back. He tries to tempt her to say that she'll take it by [[DuckSeasonRabbitSeason first offering her things like a princess dress and an Etch-a-Sketch.]] But when he asks if she wants 50% more cash back, she holds up the Etch-a-Sketch and displays a stylized "no." He says she's good and the commercial explains some things about the Capital One card. It then cuts back to the baby who asks "What's in your wallet?" and holds up the Etch-a-Sketch, which says that. Fallon comments "I usually say that."
* The Pur water filter commercial. "No Pur filter, no stars!" "THAT'S MY LINE!"

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'':
** Kafuka has been known to steal Itoshiki-sensei's catchphrase "I'm in despair!" Having his catchphrase stolen becomes a running gag in season two. You'd expect it to [[CatchPhrase leave him in despair]] but [[SubvertedTrope he tends to take it pretty well]].
** A variation also occurs in the HotSpringsEpisode, after the barrier between the men's and the women's halves falls down. Itoshiki-sensei shrieks and covers himself and one of the girls says, "That should be our reaction."
* ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'': Three different character, including the narrator, stole Motsu the frog's catchphrase "[[BadNewsInAGoodWay in a good way]]."
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'': Subversion, Tomo accuses Yomi of catchphrase stealing but it wasn't something Tomo would ever say.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** In the first season, Misty borrows Ash's "X, you're my new Pokemon" phrase and the accompanying pose when she officially takes on Horsea as her new Pokemon. Ash calls this trope on the pose rather than the phrase, leading to Misty stating [[IAlwaysWantedToSayThat she had always wanted to try it]], Brock calling it a good idea and saying he might try it and an argument ensuing about whether it's a compliment for them to want to do it or them stealing that lasts until the end of the episode (not that long but still).
** Ash once stole May's exploration team line that she sometimes did during Hoenn, and she scolded him for it (mysteriously absent in the dub).
** Misty, Tracey, and Jesse have also stolen Ash's capture pose.
** Ash and his friends have stolen Team Rocket's motto at least twice.
** Wobbuffet popped out at Meowth's usual motto line, prompting Meowth to pound it while yelling that he was tired of it stealing his part.
%% COMMENTED OUT UNTIL WE FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH THE WHOLE BLUE/GREEN THING ** In the ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' manga, Red gets the better of Blue and brags about having two gym badges in the process. Blue steals the badges shortly afterward. Later, Red infiltrates Team Rocket while they're pursuing Blue. She brags about "her" two gym badges, leaving Red unhappy that the badges weren't the ''only'' things stolen.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'':
** In one chapter, Mars decides that she's going to do the InTheNameOfTheMoon speech instead. She ''does'' tweak it, though... "Wearing high heels, I will punish you!" She has used "In the name of Mars, I will chastise you!" as well, and the other Senshi have their own version they use occasionally.
** In another episode, Mars and Mercury say the InTheNameOfTheMoon speech simultaneously ("...we will punish you!"). Needless to say, Moon responds "Hey, that's my line!"
* Yuuichi in ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'' occasionally steals Ayu's "Uguu~" to mock her. It usually escalates into an all-out VerbalTic war.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', at least in the scanslations, uses this so often that you read it more than the phrases they're supposedly copying.
* In the ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' dub, Aster Phoenix once said "Get your game on" before a game with Alexis, right before Jaden showed up.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' episode 29, when Jack and Carly start their duel against a possessed Ushio/Trudge (Jack's arm was broken, so Carly had to hold and play his cards), on their first move, Carly draws for Jack and declares that it's her turn, which results in Jack angrily shouting "It's MY turn!", and Carly apologizing. This happens in the dub as well, but Jack doesn't shout, he just says "Actually, it's my turn." after Carly draws.
* ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' has three CatchPhrase thefts, without being retorted:
** A mook, after getting finger-stabbed by Kenshiro, is "brainwashed" to tell him where the man they're looking for is being held prisoner. He promptly breaks down, fearing execution. But Rei assures him that he's not gonna get executed. When asked why, he steals Kenshiro's CatchPhrase "[[YouAreAlreadyDead You're already dead]]," and you know the rest. Being TheStoic he is, Kenshiro obviously does not comment on it.
** In the middle of battle, where there's no Kenshiro (only Rei, Mamiya and... Bart. Yeah, him), a {{Mook|s}} attacks Bart. For once the kid gets a bit "brave" and hits the mook on the face with a "WHAAA-CHAA!!" yell. And then he steals Kenshiro's CatchPhrase "You're already dead." The mook, thinking that [[YourHeadASplode his head is going to asplode]], asks "How many seconds?". Bart replies "3 seconds!" and counts to 3... The mook gets scared shitless, but after the countdown... he realizes nothing happened and Bart has already run off.
** A {{Mook|s}} who claims to know Hokuto Shinken attacks Kenshiro, does a ''really'' lame-looking move (he holds his thumbs against Kenshiro's temples), and declares "You're already dead!" Kenshiro asks how many seconds, the mook counts down from ten... and then [[EpicFail his own head blows up]] due to a previous OffhandBackhand from Kenshiro. You do ''not'' screw with the man.
* Sōsuke says this during the CurbStompBattle at the end of ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic: The Second Raid'', when the A.I. of his HumongousMecha announces how many enemies are remaining. This, and the fact that both Sōsuke and the A.I. announce the next enemy's defeat in unison, is used to indicate that Sōsuke is now working with his mecha instead of resenting it.
* In ''Anime/RurouniKenshin'', Kenshin plays this straight with Saitou. This is almost a kind of subversion, as instead of trying to be funny, this moment is terrifying; it's when Kenshin snaps.
-->'''Saitou:''' The end? This wasn't my plan... but it doesn't matter. I'll kill you now.\\
'''Kenshin:''' I think you've got it wrong. Those are MY words.
* Used near the end of ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'''s 14th episode.
-->'''Miaka:''' Hotohori! Nuriko! I'm so glad you're safe!\\
'''Nuriko:''' Uh, I thought that was supposed to be our line.
* ''Anime/InuYasha'' [[http://www.mangafox.com/page/manga/read/45/inuyasha/chapter.9753/page.9/ Two stock phrases on one page]].
-->'''Nobunaga:''' Who... who are you? You're a suspicious lot!\\
'''Inu-Yasha:''' That's my line.
* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', not exactly a catchphrase, but something that [[{{Tsundere}} England]] would probably say is said by America. They are both stranded on an island.
-->'''America:''' However, I don't think that I'd be unhappier than I am. Given being together with you is the greatest misfortune there can be.\\
'''England:''' I-I beg your pardon?! That's ''my'' line!
* ''VisualNovel/TheyAreMyNobleMasters'':
** In a battle of [[ShoutOut Shout-Outs]] between Ren and Kojyuuro, Ren (voiced by [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Domon Kasshu]]'s seiyuu) recites the Shining Finger quote: "This hand of mine glows with an awesome power! It's burning grip tells me to defeat you!". Then, Kojyuuro took over with saying "Take this! My love! My anger! And all of my sorrow!". And obviously, Ren retorted, "That's my line!" (should be also noted that afterwards, Kojyuuro, voiced by [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Guy Shishioh]]'s seiyuu, continues with [[CatchPhrase "HIKARI NI NAREEEE!!!!"]], not stolen.)
** Kojyuuro also steals another one of Domon's lines: "Those who interfere with others' love... should be kicked by a horse straight to hell!" [[spoiler:If you don't remember this line in ''G Gundam'', Domon says it as he defeats Wong Yunfat for the last time, with Fu'unsaiki's help.]]
** And if that's still not enough, just as the battle is about to begin in the earnest, both suddenly get interrupted and knocked out by the Colonel... voiced by [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]]'s seiyuu.
* Sora steals the catchphrase of Yuya, the protagonist of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', during his duels. Yuya is naturally annoyed by this and calls him out on it, though his mother states that Sora is copying him out of respect. This is actually a clue that Sora's friendship with Yuya was real [[spoiler: even after Sora reveals that he is part of the evil Academia - he still uses Yuya's catchphrase during duels.]]
* Lampshaded in ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' when [[spoiler:Nabeshin is fighting the army commando-turned-random-helicopter. Nabeshin steals what his enemy was going to say, and when it is pointed out, he yells "I'm the director, so I get all the best lines!"]].
* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Joseph Joestar's GuileHero nature is emphasized by his almost supernatural ability to predict what his opponent will say ("Your next line will be..."). One of the Pillar Men manages to turn it around on him, showing that Joseph is off his game; when Joseph finally gets the upper hand, he reclaims his CatchPhrase.
** In Part 3, Joseph gets a brief HesBack moment when he revives this trick against one of DIO's Stand-using assassins, showing that even though he's older he's still a badass.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
-->'''[[AccidentalPervert Ranma:]]''' Oh, and don't try to take advantage of me if you get scared, OK?\\
'''[[CovertPervert Akane:]]''' Hey! That's ''my'' line!\\\
'''Ranma:''' Is this what I get for bein' nice?!\\
'''Akane:''' That's my line!\\\
'''Ryōga:''' Huh?! What're you doing here?\\
'''Ranma:''' That's my line!
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** In the anime, Happy the talking cat loves to tease his human companions (especially Lucy) about any [[ShipTease hint of romance]], and always by saying, "S/He ''liiiiikes'' you!" Then, in the "Oración Seis" arc, he meets a female cat of his species, and it's LoveAtFirstSight. Lucy doesn't miss the opportunity to throw his catchphrase back at him (as "You ''liiiiike'' her!"), much to Happy's chagrin.
-->'''Happy:''' That's MY schtick, copycat! And it's not nearly as creepy when I do it!
** When someone like Gajeel uses Natsu's lines like, "Now that I've eaten, I'm all revved up!", Natsu gets upset.
* ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'': At the end of the first manga series, BigEater Goku starts to say "I'm hungry"; all three of his companions say it in unison before he can finish.
-->'''Goku:''' Hey! Don't go stealing all my lines!
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' uses this as part of an ActorAllusion in one episode. Nyarko, working as a waitress, dismisses Cuuko's attempts to get a job there by saying "Who'd want to be served by a small-breasted loser like you?!"; Cuuko responds "[[Manga/{{Working}} They're not small]]", and [[Creator/KanaAsumi Nyarko]] immediately wonders why it feels like someone just stole her line.
* In an episode of ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' [=Capu2=], Moka says Ruby's "Many things have happened" catchphrase, much to the latter's dismay.
* In ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'' episode one, Caster complains when Gilgamesh shouts, "Rule Breaker!"

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In ''ComicBook/TheSupermanAdventures'', Clark Kent shouts, "Stop the presses!" Perry snaps that nobody tells the presses to stop but him.
* At the end of ''Franchise/{{Tintin}} [[Recap/TintinTintinAndThePicaros and the Picaros]]'', Haddock begins a sentence with "To be precise", prompting the hero to exclaim about how they have forgotten about Thomson and Thompson (who at this point are about to be ''executed by firing squad'').

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* This trope appears once in a ''Cul de Sac'' strip, when Petey is being stubborn with his mom about something:
-->"Petey, in a moment I'm going to start chewing my arm off."\\
"Hey, that's ''my'' line!"

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
** Episode 17:
--->'''Joey:''' I summon Copycat. It lets me copy your CatchPhrase... in America!\\
'''Bandit Keith:''' Hey, that's ''my'' joke! It only works when I say "in America." It loses all meaning when you say it.
** And then there's Joey trying to coin "BrooklynRage" as a catchphrase, only for Yugi to shoot it down -- [[HypocriticalHumor but then use "Egyptian Rage" himself.]]
* Similarly, in ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedSeries'', Iruka kept getting pissed off that people stole his "Ahh, touche!" catch phrase, until he finally stopped even caring and left for coffee.
* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'': Calvin says this when Comicbook/{{Robin}} says "Watch and learn, junior!" to him.
* Chapter 16 of ''Fanfic/SonicGenerationsFriendshipIsTimeless'' includes the following exchange:
-->'''[[VideoGame/SonicGenerations Dr. Eggman]]''': We'll see who has issues after I've taken care of both Sonic and the Spirits of Harmony... FOREVER!\\
'''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]]''': HEY! That's my line!

'''Harry:''' Isn't that supposed to be ''my'' line?

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Igor}}'', the title character decides to pass his own evil invention as his dead master's in order to win the MadScientist competition. Since it is strictly forbidden for [[TheIgor Igors]] to invent (they can only fetch things and pull switches), this idea is deemed suicidal by his friends/creations. Scamper, an immortal, suicidal talking rabbit, slaps Igor and tells him that he can't be suicidal because "that's my thing."
* By the fourth ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', movie when Shrek burps his kids after feeding them, Fiona chimes [[BorrowedCatchphrase "Better out than in."]] With Shrek commenting that he was supposed to say that.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''[[Film/ScoobyDooMonstersUnleashed Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed]]'':
-->'''Shaggy:''' LetsSplitUpGang.\\
'''Fred:''' He stole [[BuffySpeak my thing that I say]]!
* Played for drama in the Australian film ''Film/{{Fortress|1985}}'' about the abduction of a class of children for ransom. A child called Tommy manages to slip away during a toilet break. Their teacher is trying to keep their spirits up with a rhyme which they each say in turn. When Tommy isn't there to say his line, a boy tries to cover for it, only for someone else to say, "That's Tommy's line!" which tips off the kidnappers that one of their hostages is missing.

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'':
** It sometimes happens that another character (usually Marco) shouts the words [[CatchPhrase "Let's do it!"]] instead of [[ActionGirl Rachel]]. Hey, That's My Line! was usually the reaction, or Hey, That's Her Line!
** Occasionally, no one would say it, prompting someone (usually Marco) to go "Rachel? We're waiting." or something to that effect.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Series/DoNotAdjustYourSet'' episode 11 (the sleeve is wrong) David Jason's unnamed character sits down in a restaurant at the table of Eric Idle's character. He starts to rehearse rather angry lines from a play, as he explains, he's an actor. Eric asks him to keep it quiet but even when whispered the lines keep disturbing him:
-->'''David Jason (now whispering angrily):''' "You worm! You miserable wretch! You don't care about anyone else do you, hey? Answer me!"\\
'''Eric Idle:''' Would you pass...\\
'''David Jason:''' "No no! A thousand times no! I've done enough for the likes of you."\\
'''Eric Idle:''' Would you pass...\\
'''David Jason:''' "This may surprise you, but I've had enough."\\
'''Eric Idle:''' Look! I've had enough of your prattling on! I came here for a quiet evening and all I get is an idiot like you! I'm going, leaving, driven out and it's all your fault. Goodnight!\\
'''David Jason (normal and surprised):''' I say, that's MY line.
* In ''Series/TheOfficeUS'' episode "The Injury", when Dwight is taken to the hospital for a concussion:
-->'''Doctor:''' Does the skin look red and swollen?\\
'''Dwight:''' That's what she said.\\
'''Michael:''' That's my joke, damnit Dwight.
* In ''Series/TheThickOfIt'': Whilst lacking a specific catchphrase, the spin doctor Malcolm Tucker is known for his frequent use of extremely coarse language when criticizing his colleagues, to the point when MP Nicola Murray uses a similarly colorful phrase on him, he responds appropriately:
-->'''Nicola:''' You're about as on the ball today as a dead seal.\\
'''Malcolm:''' Hey, that's one of my fucking lines!
* In the ''Series/SledgeHammer'' episode where he's got Creator/HumphreyBogart as a SpiritAdvisor: Sledge says "Here's looking at you, kid!", and Bogey answers... guess what.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Only tenuously connected to this trope, but funny all the same: In the musical episode, the duet between Xander and Anya has one part where the two switch off verses (funnier since at this point the verses are essentially insulting each other); however, Anya jumps in at Xander's cue (still rhyming perfectly) with "His eyes are beady!" causing him to sing, "This is ''my'' verse, hello?!" The DVD extra has a karaoke cut suitably named that line.
** In the episode "Who Are You?":
--->'''Anya:''' We were going to light a bunch of candles and have sex near them.\\
'''Faith in Buffy's body:''' Well, we certainly don't want to cut into that seven minutes.\\
'''Anya:''' Hey!\\
'''Xander:''' (''to Anya'') I believe that's my "hey". (''to Faith'') ''Hey!''
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'':
** In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', the [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki Hibiki's]] World arc has Kaitou (who got ADayInTheLimelight) steal Tsukasa's usual WorldOfCardboardSpeech, to which Tsukasa responds "You're stealing my lines!". Kaitou then goes on to complete the theft by giving an altered version of Tsukasa's CatchPhrase:
--->'''[=DiEnd=]:''' Let me say this: before you came along, [[IWasJustPassingThrough I was a passing-through Kamen Rider!]] Remember that.
** And in the episode of ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' that focused on [[SecondRider Beast]] getting his SuperMode, [[TheHero Haruto]] stole Nitoh's line of "Stop! Don't say it!"
* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'': In the Hollywood episode, Cody gets so nervous when he forgets his line, that the next time he says his line AND Zack's, which he notes.
* In ''Series/TopGear'', the presenters fight over who gets to use the phrase "Back to the studio".
* ''Series/{{Psych}}'''s season 5 episode "Extradition II" has Shawn saying Gus's classic "you ''know'' that's right!" It's actually difficult to tell whether Gus is more angry because Shawn stole his primary "cool black guy" catchphrase or because he emphatically disagreed with the sentiment.
* The episode of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' where Natalie briefly becomes a lottery hostess uses this trope as a RunningGag.
** The first time, Randy has just told Captain Stottlemeyer a great one-liner ("It looks like her number came up") about the victim. Moments later:
--->'''Medical Examiner:''' I still don't get it. Who would want to kill the lotto girl?\\
'''Officer Kelton:''' I guess her number came up! (''the coroner starts laughing, while Randy throws his notebook at the officer'') Hey! What are you doing?\\
'''Lt. Randall Disher:''' What are ''you'' doing? That was my line, man!
** The second instance is when Natalie signs off after her first appearance:
--->'''Natalie Teeger:''' So, that's it for now! Keep playing lotto. (''beat'') You'll thank me later! (''the music stops'')\\
'''Adrian Monk:''' "You'll thank me later?" That's my line! I say that!\\
'''Lt. Randall Disher:''' Hurts, doesn't it?
* The third series of ''Series/FatherTed'' has a scene taking place after Ted has a few drinks in him. When Father Jack enters the room and tries to walk to his chair, Ted shouts, with Jack's usual inflection, "[[PrecisionFStrike FECK OFF!]]" [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Father Jack is uncharacteristically taken aback and runs away.]]
* Done twice in a ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' between Judge Judy and referee Mills Lane. Judy steals Mills' "Let's get it on!" and "I'll allow it" catchphrases.
* ''Series/{{CSI NY}}''
-->'''Jo:''' Boom!\\
'''Danny:''' Are you using my word? (''as he's following her to see something related to a case'')
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** In one episode, Sam and Dean are trying to protect a girl who turns out to be a fallen angel from demons. The night before, Dean is talking to her, and she gives him the "we may die tomorrow" speech. Dean is shocked, not because of the idea but because it's usually what he says in these situations.
** One episode has Abaddon using Crowley's "Hello, boys." when arriving on the scene, prompting Crowley to say "That's my line!"
* Penny Marshall once guest starred as a tough cop on ''Series/NashBridges'' who assists in tracking down a woman's stalker. While the man is professing that he and his victim are soulmates, Marshall's character says "Tell it to your cellmate, bubba!" Nash, who constantly addresses men as "bubba", snaps "Hey, I've got a patent on that!"
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Part of the character arc of Clara Oswald is in her becoming the DistaffCounterpart to the Doctor, leading to a few of these moments, such as in "Flatline" when she briefly impersonates the Doctor (much to the chagrin of the real Doctor, who is listening in), and in "Under the Lake" when it's Clara, not the Doctor, who yells "Run!" when being chased by a monster. When he first meets a Victorian version of Clara in "The Snowmen", she ends up hauling him along by the hand like a DamselInDistress, the Doctor complaining all the while.
-->'''The Doctor:''' No, ''I'' do the hand grabbing! That's my job; that's always me!
** A spoof back in 1985 had Creator/LennyHenry as the Doctor with a companion who kept doing this trope.
-->'''The Doctor:''' You mean...''[DramaticPause]''
-->'''Companion:''' The Daleks!
-->'''The Doctor:''' ''I'' wanted to say that!
-->'''Companion:''' I'm sorry. Go on then; ''You mean...!''
-->'''The Doctor:''' The Daleks! ''[to companion]'' Thanks, I feel better now.

* Wanna know a surefire way to piss off Wrestling/RicFlair? [[http://youtu.be/hVU0MW-IGrM Steal half of his lines like Jay Lethal did]]!
* During Wrestling/DanielBryan's initial {{heel}} run in WWE, he would often chant [[AscendedMeme "YES! YES! YES!"]] on his way to the ring. The fans caught on quickly and chanted alongside him...much to his chagrin. He would later start screaming "NO! NO! NO!" as a way to counter them.

-->'''Shadow:''' Well then, It'll be a date to die for!\\
'''Sonic:''' Hey, that's my line!
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'':
** A line that is, in itself, a reference to ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', which makes sense: Lloyd was raised by a Dwarf. Note that it is never used after that point:
--->'''Raine:''' Give me your name and I'll give you mine.\\
'''Genis:''' Hey, you copied Lloyd.\\
'''Lloyd:''' Now that I've heard someone else say it, it sounds kinda arrogant.
** Another case (Later in the game, and during a sidequest):

* One page of ''Webcomic/CastlevaniaRPG'' has [[http://www.cvrpg.com/archive/comic/2012/11/27 a Belmont and his vampirized sister]] switch the "you don't belong in this world" / "have at you" lines, and Alec whining about it.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Jane blames Jake for stealing the phrase "shucks buster". Of course, Jake believes the line belongs to both, but it turns out it belonged to Jane and she let Jake use it, but retracted the permission because Jake has been a pain in the ass lately.

* In the ''WebVideo/{{lonelygirl15}}'' self parody episode "Proving Science Wrong... with Lonelybeast and Danielgirl15", Daniel uses Bree's "Proving science wrong!" CatchPhrase before launching into an extremely inaccurate description of the Coriolis effect, which he terms "the Cornwallis effect". In the background, Bree [[FacePalm bangs her head against the magazine she's reading]].
* Crackitus Potts is the de facto leader of Theatre/TheLeagueOfSTEAM and usually introduces the episodes he appears in. When someone else will occasionally start the introduction, he'll usually run to the camera to interrupt them and take over the intro.
* In WebSite/GaiaOnline's "Demonbusters" event, the Sentinel uses a very familiar EvilLaugh on live television, pissing off Johnny Gambino (though he was too lazy to actually do anything except complain).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** When Zoidberg's contemporary iHawk uses a joke Zoidberg had told before (and was much better received), Zoidberg freaked out and threatened to kill him, because "That's my joke!" The scene is a parody of a ''Series/{{MASH}}'' episode in which BJ started taking credit for a joke Hawkeye's father told him. It seemed to bug Hawkeye more that BJ hadn't laughed when he first heard the joke than it did that he stole it.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Lisa uses several of Bart's {{Catch Phrase}}s (like "Don't have a cow, man") line to impress her new friends, which upsets Bart. However, Marge [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that he hasn't said those phrases in years, and tells him to "let Lisa have it".

'''Snidely:''' Hey, that's my line!
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot''. Both Dot and Enzo have been known to use Bob's "This is bad. Very bad" line, or his "I don't believe in the no-win scenario" line. Bob does use the "That's my line" response on one occasion. Seeing how Bob stole "I don't believe in the no-win scenario" from [[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Captain Kirk]], he's got no right to complain.
* Two examples from the same episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'':
-->'''Chameleon:''' (''posing as Spider-Man'') My insect early warning system is tingling!\\
'''Black Cat:''' My kitty-sense is ''purring''...
** Spidey himself rarely, if ever, gets to finish the line, which is ''internal'' dialogue in most incarnations. [[FridgeLogic How has either of them heard it?]]
* ''Where's Wally'' (Waldo if you live across the pond) has [[EvilTwin Odlaw]] turn up too late to follow the protagonist and says the [[BreakingTheFourthWall narrator's catchphrase]] "Where's Wally?", as a result the narrator invokes this trope.
* From the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "The Red Badge of Gayness":
-->'''Stan:''' Oh my God, {{they killed Kenny|Again}}!\\
'''Stan's Grandpa:''' You bastards!\\
'''Kyle:''' Hey!
* Slappy Squirrel in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' always says "Now, ''that's'' comedy!" at the end of her every cartoon. In one episode, however, her nephew steals her catchphrase, at which she says, "You're adorable... but that's ''my'' line."
* Isabella from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' is highly protective of her "Whatcha doin'?" {{catchphrase}}, to the point where she can sense if someone says it from halfway across the town.
* ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'':
** During an episode, the Deadly Duplicator thinks about how he's going to "Eliminate" Birdman. X appears beside him, and tells him to get his own thing.

* In ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible: [[WesternAnimation/KimPossibleMovieSoTheDrama So The Drama]]'', when Kim and Ron are held hostage in Drakken's lair (after Kim discovered that her new beau Eric was TheMole):
-->'''Ron:''' So what's the plan?\\
'''Kim:''' Ron, I--I've got nothing.\\
'''Ron:''' That's my line, and what's worse that's quitter talk!
** In ''A Sitch in Time'', when Future!Shego intimidates Ron when he tries to steal the Time Monkey from her.
-->'''Future!Shego:''' See, I rule the world. I can do anything.
-->'''Kim:''' Hey, that's my line!
-->'''Future!Shego:''' Maybe, but I've got the muscle to back it up. ''(tosses Ron at Kim)''

* The ending of the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E21OverABarrel "Over a Barrel"]] has Twilight quoting Pinkie Pie's song from earlier in [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle her letter to Princess Celestia]]. Cue Pinkie [[BreakingTheFourthWall holding open]] the IrisOut to protest "Hey, that's what I said!" Her annoyance was due less to Twilight quoting the song and more to how ''poorly'' the {{Aesop}} was received when ''Pinkie'' said it.
* This happens to Lucky in two separate episodes of the 2010 ''WesternAnimation/{{Pound Puppies|2010}}'' series. Lucky's "Go dogs, go" catchphrase is used first by a cat (who replaces "dogs" with "cats") in "Catcalls" and three times in "Snow Problem", two of them by a puppy who aspires to be a sled dog who uses it to lead Lucky and the team in the sled race.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' features Baloo and Kit infiltrating the Air Pirates' ''Iron Vulture''. Because it's Disney, the pirates break into a big musical number, at the end of which, hoping for a longer distraction, Baloo yells "One more time!" Of course, all the pirates look at him in ''shock''.
-->'''Don Karnage:''' Who said "one more time"? Only ''I'' can say "one more time"! '''Get them!'''
* ''WEsternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'': In "Zoohouse Rock", Kin manages to steal the catchphrases of the other three band members, ending with him bumping Corey out of the way to close with Corey's usual "Thanks for coming out everyone" and remarking that he is now "three for three".
* The Conductor does it in "Fossil Fred" from ''WesternAnimation/DinosaurTrain'', when Mrs. Pteranadon declares "Next stop, Big Pond!"
* In the WesternAnimation/ChillyWilly short ''Chilly Chums'', the villain inhales laughing gas and begins doing the SignatureLaugh of WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker. At that point, [[CrossoverPunchline Woody himself enters]] to protest and proceeds to peck a hole in the bottom of the ice for the villain to fall through.
* In ''HeyArnold'', Gerald often says "You're a bold kid, Arnold." to his best friend but said this trope when Arnold once said it to him.
--> '''Arnold:''' You're a bold kid, Gerald.
--> '''Gerald:''' Hey, that's my line.
