->''"Sweet... something of... someplace!"''
-->-- '''Hermes''', [[OverusedRunningGag running out of ideas]] on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''

A CatchPhrase that's slightly different every time - the same phrase structure, but with one or two words different each time it's used, either completely at random or somehow related to the current situation. Perhaps the most famous is Comicbook/{{Robin}}'s "Holy ____, Batman!"

Subtrope of CatchPhrase and a prime source for the "mutation" part of MemeticMutation - turns of phrase like "X is the new Y" which behave this way are sometimes called '{{snowclone}}s'. Unrelated to MadLibsDialogue.

'''NOTE:''' Examples should be formatted like a "Mad Libs" page, with the missing word or phrase made as specific as possible. We want [plural noun] who [verb] them to understand the [abstract noun], after all! Blank lines appear when the gap can be filled with pretty much anything.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime]]
* Nozomu Itoshiki, ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'': "I'm in despair! [The subject of today's episode] has left me in despair!"
** Or, with the recent change to the manga's translator: "It's hopeless! I've lost all faith in [subject of today's chapter]!"
* ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'': "[suitable person/group] may let you but I won't!"
** Updated in the [[Manga/SailorMoon followup]] as "[person] may forgive you, but I/we won't!"
* ''{{Karin}}'': "[The subject of today's episode] is embarrassing!"
* ''{{Himawari}}!'' has two. Yusura describes things being "[adjective] like a(n) [animal]". Azami has "According to my information, [useful information]. Also, [useless trivia]."
* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Crona's "I don't know how to deal with [whatever is in front of [[AmbiguousGender hir]] at the time]!"
* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'', Monta: "[verb] MAX!"
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': Katsura occasionally twists his catchphrase of [[AccidentalMisnaming "It's not Zura, it's Katsura"]] into "I'm not a [noun], I'm Katsura" or "I'm not [adjective], I'm Katsura". Even if that winds up blowing his cover, he still does it. And sometimes, he also twists it like "I'm not [noun]/[adjective], I'm [name]/[noun]"
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'''s Team Rocket's mottos, particularly in Sinnoh. Bulbapedia has a complete list. They're too long to put here, though "Listen, is that a/n [adjective noun]/[noun] I hear?" "It [verb]s to me loud and clear!" is a common one.
** And when defeated and going offscreen, they used to cry out that they are "_____ing off again" (usually "blasting off"). It was a normal CatchPhrase in the Japanese.
** Cilan has "It's _____ time!" in the Japanese version, originally starting with tasting time, we have now had various times including, but not limited to, fishing time, science time, detective time, and unbelievable time. The dub does this to a lesser extent, with "evaluating time" being his default catchphrase instead of "tasting time".
*** Possibly due to either almost missing it or perhaps really loving it (or both) the dub has been adding extra "It's _____ time!" phrases for Cilan starting from ''Facing Fear with Eyes Wide Open''. They added two extra along with "It's lunch time~!" and "It's fishing time!" these being "It's fishing wrap it up time!" and "It's Pokéball time!" and they've continued to do so with the following episodes. Plus, it's not just that, but TPCI has also been having other character imitate Cilan's phrase.
* ''BlackButler'': "A Phantomhive butler that can't do [insert ridiculous task here] isn't worth his salt!"
* ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'': This [item or ideal] has been passed down the Armstrong line for generations!
* ''ShakuganNoShana'': "My [adjective] [noun], Margery Daw!"
* Sky High of ''TigerAndBunny'': "_____! And _____ again!"
* Brook from ''OnePiece'' has: [Common phrase that includes a body part (eyes, stomach, etc.)], wait, I don't have [said body part].

* In ''{{Exalted}}'', Sidereals can use special prayer strips bearing one of twenty-five Scriptures to enhance certain of their abilities.

* The main series, ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', also has some. For instance, there's Homestar saying "Best/worst [number] bucks I ever spent!" Other examples can be found [[http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Category:Variable_word_running_gags on the wiki]].

* WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob has a couple:
** "If I want [''X, typically a film genre''], I'll stick with ''real'' [''X''], like [''better-known but still obscure example''], thank you very much!" [[note]]If I want woodchipper movies, I'll stick with ''real'' woodchipper movies -- like {{Fargo}} -- thank you very much!"[[/note]]
** "You're about as [''adjective''] as [''well-known actor deliberately used as a bad example'']!"[[note]]Yeah, you're about as Southern as [[LarryTheCableGuy Dan Whitney!"]][[/note]]
* ''Blog/BloggerBeware'' has a really weird one. At first he started out making reference to people disappearing halfway through the book (generally under "Platonic Boy/Girl Relationship"), and it happened so often it started mutating until eventually, every entry would make reference to ''someone'', doing ''something'', halfway through ''some event''.
* Whenever Bailiff Jesse Thorn swears in the defendant and complainant in the ''Judge [[CompleteWorldKnowledge John Hodgman]] Podcast'', he asks whether they'll "abide by the judge's ruling, no matter how insane/offensive/onerous/etc. it may seem."

* Creator/{{Tobuscus}} opens every episode of Cute Win Fail with the phrase, "Hi, I'm Toby Turner. [Improbable statement], and this is 'Cute Win Fail'." Said improbable statement is then used as a RunningGag in the remainder of the intro.
* ''Literature/PayMeBug'': [[TheCaptain Grif Vindh]] likes to take a word or phrase he just said, and... "clarify" it by adding "and by [word or phrase], I mean [short rant that includes the word or phrase]."
-->"It's fascinating," Grif said. "And by 'fascinating,' I mean 'isn't it fascinating how little I want to go back?'"
* Washington of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' often uses the phrase "[[WorstWhateverEver Worst [noun or action] ever]]. Of all time."
* The introductions to ''Website/{{Cracked}} TV'' and its spinoff ''Does Not Compute'', starring Michael Swaim. ''Cracked TV'' starts with "Welcome to episode X of ''Cracked TV'', where [phrase [[FunWithAcronyms fitting into the acronym S.W.A.I.M.]]]" On ''DNC'', it gets a little more versatile. "Welcome to episode [cultural reference relating to episode number] of ''Does Not Compute''. I'm your host, [two word reference with initials M and S]. With me as always is my co-host, clips of [some bizarre thing scoured from the bottom of the internet]".

* The members of ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' have a habit of using the catchphrase "-ass ."
* [[{{TOME}} NYLOCKE!]] Dragon/Master of [X]!
* Matt from ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay'':
** "It's [''positive adjective''] than you'd think, and [''negative adjective''] than you'd hope!"
* Black Hat Man from ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' has acquired one in ''Blog/WhatIf'': "What if we [increased the scope of the original question in a way that will [[SerialEscalation eventually]] lead to [[StuffBlowingUp massive destruction]]]?"
* The Evil Guitarist from the ''WebAnimation/PimpLando'' series has this (overlaps with PhraseCatcher):

--> '''The Evil Guitarist''': 'Cause sometimes it does this.
--> ''( does something to injure [[ButtMonkey Mr. Smiles]], who walks on just for the occasion)''

-->"[episode theme] Day can be a very dangerous day."
* From ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', Hermes' "Sweet [noun] of [rhyming location]!"
** "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back" even had him traumatised (his office having been destroyed just before an inspection) and mutter:
-->"Sweet... something of... some place..."
** Also, Hermes': "That's [adjective]er than a [something to do with green snakes] on/with/in a [something to do with sugarcane].
** Judging from the episodes "Attack of the Killer App" and "The Bots and the Bees", it seems that Fry has "Shut up and [demand]!"
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': "No one [verbs] like Gaston!" More a subject of MemeticMutation than an actual CatchPhrase from the movie, as he just says it during his VillainSong. In the ''HouseOfMouse'', it went beyond CatchPhrase to practically the only thing he ever said.
* Several from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Homer's "Mmmmm... [food item or something that sounds like one]... * gurgling sound* "
** And there's Wiggum's "What a shame. [person or piece of equipment] had [[{{Retirony}} one day left to retirement]]"
** The Comic Book Guy often claims something is the "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Worst.]] [=[=][[UnpleasableFanbase noun]][=]=]. [[WorstWhateverEver Ever.]]"

** Smithers' "That's Homer Simpson, sir, one of your [insulting adjective]s from sector 7G".
* ''MakingFiends'': Martin has "My [noun]!" as a running gag, with the noun either being a stolen item or injured body part. This was so belabored in the online version that that every single one of his sentences, exclamation or no, started with "My", with one exception across twenty episodes. (Two if you want to count the TranslationTrainWreck that is the April Fool's episode.)
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RJsjeoP8_w I am the terror that flaps in the night.]] I am the [noun] that [verbs] your [noun]. I am ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''!"

-->"Is it just me or [clause]?"
** Phoebe had one as well: "At my old school, [noun] never [whatever the current noun is doing]." Usually [noun] is "we" or "the bus."
*** Carlos didn't have a CatchPhrase per se, so he made "[terrible pun]" his CatchPhrase, since this is ''MagicSchoolBus'' and everyone's gotta have a CatchPhrase.
** And Dorothy Ann has one too: "According to my research, [plot-relevant fact]."
* Dr. Drakken of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. His usual CatchPhrase is "You think you're all that, Kim Possible! But you're not!" But he often changes it, especially if she has something new, or brought someone else with her:
-->"You think your ____ is all that, Kim Possible! But it's/they're ''not''!"
** Notable subversion, in the first GrandFinale, ''[[TheMovie So The Drama]]'': "Maybe she ''is'' all that!" And another in the real GrandFinale, "Graduation", when Drakken [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat wrongly believed]] that the alien invaders [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead had killed Kim]]:

* "Mom! MOM!!! WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb are [action]!!"
--> "Ahh, Perry the Platypus, how [adjective beginning with a negative prefix]. And by that I mean COMPLETELY [same adjective without the prefix, even if it's not a real word]!!"
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] to hell on more than one occasion though...
--> "Ahh, Perry the Platypus, your timing is unexpected. And by unexpected, I mean..... um..... unexpected. What are you doing here? This is my week off."
** "Aren't you a little young to [whatever Phineas and Ferb are currently doing]?" "Why, yes. Yes I am."
