->''"Sweet… something of… someplace!"''
-->-- '''Hermes''', ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back"

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 ____, Series/{{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.



* Playstation's Long Live Play ad campaign has Kevin Butler, VP of [silly fictional department].
* This is a standard trope for AdBumpers on TV shows, especially syndicated shows, but also shows up on Saturday mornings as well. It usually follows this pattern:
-->"[show] will return / be (right) back after these messages."
-->"We now return to / (And) now back to [show]".[[note]]Other variants exist, but these are the most common.[[/note]]
* Early Creator/CartoonNetwork bumpers sometimes had the network refer to itself as "The [random noun or adjective] Network". For example, when the network aired [[Anime/GForceGuardiansOfSpace G Force]], it sometimes referred to itself as "The Lightspeed Network". Another example is when WesternAnimation/{{Wildfire}} aired as part of its "Look What We Found" showcase, when the network referred to itself as "The Boss Hoss Network".
* "[Name of regularly scheduled program][[note]]Or alternately, "This program".[[/note]] will not be seen today / tonight, but will return next week[[note]]Or alternately, "next [whatever day of the week it's usually shown on]".[[/note]] / tomorrow / Monday at it's regularly scheduled time."[[note]]The station or network will then announce what special programming will be shown instead.[[/note]]
* It isn't done very much anymore, but as recently as the 1990s (at least) Creator/{{CBS}} would occasionally have this, especially for their daytime shows[[note]]It happened on both game shows and soap operas alike.[[/note]]:
-->"Stay tuned for [name of next program], next over most of these CBS stations."

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Nozomu Itoshiki, ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'': "I'm in despair! [The subject of today's episode] has left me in despair!", or with the 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!"
** "Moon Power! [disguise] ni na-re!! (loosely: turn / change me into [disguise][[note]]Both of these specific variants were used in Creator/{{DIC}}'s English dub.[[/note]])"
* ''Manga/{{Karin}}'': "[The subject of today's episode] is embarrassing!"
* ''Anime/{{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 them]] at the time]!"
* ''Manga/{{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.
* ''Manga/BlackButler'': "A Phantomhive butler that can't do [insert ridiculous task here] isn't worth his salt!"
** In the official manga translation, it is: "I am butler to the Phantomhive family. It goes without saying that I can handle a [situation] such at this."
* ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'': This [item or ideal] has been passed down the Armstrong line for generations!
* ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'': "My [adjective] [noun], Margery Daw!"
* Sky High of ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'': "_____! And _____ again!"
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Brook has: [Common phrase that includes a body part (eyes, stomach, etc.)], wait, I don't have [said body part]. He also uses: [Expression of relief at being alive/terror at the prospect of being killed], however, I am already dead.
** Usopp will often come down with some kind of extremely specific disease that prevents him from going to islands he thinks are scary.
* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' uses "Actually, I am...", typically when a new character is revealed to be a vampire or werewolf or other unusual being, though it also crops up in more dramatic contexts. Also doubles as a TitleDrop, due to the phrase being the manga's original Japanese name.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Calvin's Dad from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' has "[Whatever Calvin's complaining about] builds character." Eventually, Calvin parodied it by combing down his hair, taking his father's glasses, and yelling, "Calvin! go do something you hate! Being [[MiseryBuildsCharacter miserable builds character!]]" which dad, annoyed, admitted was ActuallyPrettyFunny (Calvin's mom, meanwhile, was literally on the floor, laughing uproariously).
* Obelix from ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'':
-->"These [ethnic group]s are ''crazy!''"

* ''Film/AdeleHasntHadHerDinnerYet'': Nick Carter always introduces his super cool devices as "a present from my friend [surname]"--his friends are [[UsefulNotes/ThomasEdison Edison]], Röntgen, Nobel, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers and Laser]]. Mr Laser apparently invented a solar gun.

* In Book 1 of ''Literature/TheGospelOfLoki'', the chapters are all headed with a quote in the formula, "Never trust a [person]."
* Tom Cullen of ''Literature/TheStand'', who is mildly mentally challenged and doesn't know how to spell anything, will often say, "M-O-O-N, that spells [word related to the topic of conversation]!" Accidentally accurate at one point when he says it in regard to the moon.
* ''Literature/TheFirstLaw'' has "Say anything about [[BarbarianHero Logen Ninefingers]], say he's [something]." About half the time it's a BadassBoast, and half the time it's sarcastic or SelfDeprecation.
* In the ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'', the Sixth Doctor's companion Mel Bush is sometimes given the Mad Libs Catchphrase "Never mind the [fictional or historic character] [activity]!" based on the scene in "Trial of a Time Lord" where she says "Never mind the [[LIterature/ATaleOfTwoCities Sydney Carton]] heroics!"
