    14: Star Trek # 1

  • "While I've got them, let me tell them about the...incredible...offers from Priceline.com."
  • There's a moment in the comic where a fight breaks out and one of the participants falls into Captain Kirk as he's walking by.
    Captain Kirk: Is it your intention to sit out this tour on my lap, Ensign?
    Linkara: Is that an invitation, Captain?

    15: Newmen # 1

    18-21: Amazons Attack 
  • Linkara reviews Amazons Attack: "Hello, Doom's IV? I'm sorry. I want you back!"
  • In part two, when he does his trademark "I am a MAN!" and punches off screen. His hand inexplicably returns holding a teddy bear, causing him to announce "Bear!" in an ecstatic voice.
  • Linkara completely snapping under the realization that the whole thing was just a tie-in to Countdown.
    Linkara: [waving around bunny statue] Look at the pretty bunny, look at the pretty bunny! [breaks down crying]
    • Just the entirety of his spaz-out during the review.
    Linkara: [trying to cut his wrists with a gun] Why doesn't it work?!
  • After he decides burying his face in a pillow is preferable to going on: "And yet somehow this is still more entertaining than the comic itself."
  • Also, this exchange:
    Aide in comic: D.C. is in ruins.
    Linkara: Well, after this comic it certainly is.
  • Or:
    President: Yes! I killed a teenage girl! Why do other politicians seem to have so much trouble with it?
  • Bees. My God.
    • "Can someone please tell me what emotion Batman is expressing with that line? Confusion? Irony? Sadness? Anger? Acceptance? Disgust? Surprise? Anticipation? Contempt? Awe? Disappointment? Shame? Sympathy? Rage?! Oh, wait, that's me. Agony? Frustration? Apathy? It's apathy, isn't it? (Sighs) OK, you don't care, Batman, so we don't either."
  • The plot breaking Pollo.
  • "Yee-haw! Early retahment!"
  • In his last Amazons Attack video, his musical Shout-Out to a certain drum-loving nutcase while mocking one of Circe's hammy Info Dumps.
  • Linkara's response when Circe says that she used a piece of her soul in the resurrection of Hyppolita to turn her evil
    Linkara: Free will? Load of crap, you're just born evil. *Beat* This is my CLUE STICK!!! (proceeds to hit the screen)
  • "CRAP IN HEAVEN, HOW MUCH LONGER IS THIS?!" from Part 2.
  • "Corporate accounts payable, Batman speaking. Just a moment. Corporate accounts payable, Batman speaking. Just a moment."

     Sultry Teenage Super Foxes # 1 
  • "As for the cover itself, we have our four protagonists, who are apparently sultry, teenage, super, and foxes. I suspect that one woman's hair on the left is a fox, but I'm not seeing it with the others."
  • "Um, Cindy, the comic's the other way, could you turn around?"
  • This:
    Narrator: July. It means summer heat and clear blue skies here at Rutgers Air Force Base.
    Linkara!Narrator: August, on the other hand, means a filthy obscenity. And don't even get me started on what Spetember means.
  • Afterward:
    Narrator: July is spent gazing dreamily at the cream of American manhood.
    Linkara: Okay, don't say "cream" or "manhood" ever again, okay?
  • His names for the characters which include "Girl with Hair from ThunderCats" and "Murphy Brown".
  • This:
    Linkara: So now you know. And Knowing Is Half the Battle.
    (NBC "The More You Know" logo appears)
    Linkara: Wait, wait, that was supposed to be the G.I. Joe music!
    Offscreen voice: Eh, we'll fix it in post.
    Linkara: You better! So now, back to our—
    Music: ♪G. I. Joe!♪
    Linkara: A little late for it!
  • Upon seeing a sign labeled "French-style entertainment", he cues footage of Benzaie dancing.
  • "And for some reason that just baffles the mind, the narrator then asks, 'Mommy, it followed me home. Can I keep it?' Oh no! The writer's having flashbacks back to their childhood! Take cover!"
  • This:
    Scientist: I mean, consider the transmutation of living tissue! Men into supermen! The power of creation could be in our grasp!
  • This:
    Narrator: Jasmine is now the bride of fire.
    Linkara!Jasmine: This relationship is suffocating me! Literally!

    Watchmen 
  • I just about died laughing during his April Fools' Day Watchmen review as "Lester B. Bum."
    "You got to give me change! Or the giant naked blue wang will join forces with the giant squid and eat me!"
  • "I went to Mars once!!"
    • "It was chocolatey."
  • "I've got a giant naked blue wang! But not where you think."
  • Pulling off a perfectly timed "OF COURSE!" while omitting the expected Street Fighter clip only makes it that much more entertaining.

    23: Top 15 Worst Heroes Becoming Villains 

    25: Daredevil # 305 
  • Daredevil: Life turns cheap, then it turns up in the emergency room.
    Linkara: Dear Lord, the fact that they even used a "Life is cheap" line is just dorky. But hey, at least it wasn't "Life is cheap in the big city," or something - oh wait, Daredevil uses it in the last panel of the page. I really should just give up right here.
  • After losing patience with Daredevil's noir-esque narration:
    Linkara: Honestly, just imagine if I had some stupid narrator like that. It wouldn't be dramatic, it'd be annoying.
    Narrator: He sits on his futon, green like the blood of a Star Trek Vulcan. He thinks he and he alone knows the pain and suffering that results from- (Linkara shoots upwards with the Magic Gun, shutting him up).
    • He comes back to narrate the credits, at which point Linkara yells at him to get him a drink. He narrates that as well.

    25: Daredevil # 306 

    Wolverine: Adamantium Rage 
  • Later, Linkara tries his hands of videogame in Wolverine: Adamantium Rage. Mid-way, he starts going batshit, using a variation his "I AM A MAN!" * punch* gag, with replacing the quote with "ADAMANTIUM RAGE!". He knocks Spoony out, and pretty much everything else... until he met The Angry Video Game Nerd.
    Linkara: ADAMANTIUM RAGE!!!
    AVGN: ''* punches Linkara in the face*
    • And later, Linkara encounters Doctor Insano, and believes he's figured out his true identity.
      Linkara: Wait a second!....You're That Chick With The Goggles!
      Insano: ....I'm not fricking black!
      Linkara: But you are a woman?
  • At one point Linkara gets so frustrated that he decides to resort to cheat codes, upon which Spoony, who had up until then been sitting in the background playing a DS, calls him a wimp, so Linkara gives him a go. Spoony is gradually driven insane and tries to strangle himself with the laptop's power cord, finally resulting in this:
    Spoony: Fine, you can use the fuckin' cheats!
    • CHEAT CODES ARE STILL ENABLED
  • "I heard that, Linkara."
  • At the end of the review he says "This game sucks!" as he holds up one hand as though it's holding a real object. It's funny because it's not a comic, and it's funny because he doesn't actually own a physical copy of the game; he was using an emulator. But force of habit made him do the hand gesture anyway.
  • "Brother, not mother. Idiot."

    Warrior # 1 
  • Pretty much the entirety of Linkara and Spoony's review of Warrior #1, a comic so absolutely horrible that Dr. Insano used it to shatter space-time, resulting in the review occurring over the course of multiple weird alternate universes, including ones where Linkara and Spoony switch places, where Spoony has Benzaie's hair and Linkara has Angry Joe's beard, one where Linkara and Spoony are teddy bears, another where Linkara and Spoony can't act and have to read directly from the script, and one where there's this psychotic fusion of Linkara, Insano, and Chester A. Bum.
    • Also, the constant, horrible abuse of the ellipses, culminating in:
      Nostalgia Critic: "STOP! USING! ELLIPSES!"
  • "He raped Santa!"
    • Angry Joe: "Hold it! Nobody rapes Santa on our watch!"
  • Dr. Insan-Ohki: I'm adorable but alone.
  • "Oh, don't be so negative."
  • "Emperor Spoonus Maximus demands that one of these narrators be silent immediately. 'Tis most annoying, rather like listening to Socrates give his forum stand-up routine while attending a Senate meeting."
  • Having some Fun with Subtitles with the Ultimate Warrior's promos, HOAK HOGAN!
  • This exchange:
    Linksano: (laughs evilly) It worked! My hypertime destabilization experiment was a complete success! [Beat] Well, sort of, my hair's a different color.
    Linkara!Spoony: Doctor Insano!
    Linksano: OF COURSE! Who else but I could create a dimensional rift in the fabric of hypertime? Now all your continuities, are belong to me!

    31: New Guardians # 2 
  • Everything having to do with Snowflame in his New Guardians review.
    Snowflame: I am SNOWFLAME! Every cell of my being burns with white-hot ecstasy! COCAINE IS MY GOD AND I AM THE HUMAN INSTRUMENT OF ITS WILL!"
    Linkara: (befuddled look) Ladies and gentlemen, I can say without a hint of irony that is the crackiest thing I have ever seen in a comic, and I've seen Jetpack Hitler and ancient Kandarian book being used as toilet paper by zombie superheros! In fact, that statement is so bloody ridiculous, insane, and bad, that it's freaking awesome! Snowflame, the man powered by cocaine, is win of the highest level!
  • "How dare our enemy not be impressed with repeated punching! We worked really hard on that!"

    33: Secret Defender # 9 
  • "The cover here is — AAGH, MY EYES!"
  • This:
    Doctor Strange: Why have you come to the house of DOCTOR STRANGE?
    Linkara: And his name is in red and made huge, as if he routinely walks around talking about himself in the most dramatic manner possible. I wonder if he does this in real life, too.
    Linkara!Doctor Strange: DOCTOR STRANGE demands his mocha double latte!

    34: Secret Defender # 10 
  • The entire opening:
    Narrator: Previously On Atop the Fourth Wall:
    Linkara Well, let's dig into Secret Defenders #9 and and I'll show you.
    (Cut to Linkara holding a Dogbert plush in one hand, a sword in the other)
    Linkara: Of course! The bombs were secretly hidden in the coconuts the entire… the entire…
    Linkara: I'm sorry, I just can't do this.
    Phelous: (cocks a gun) Wait, what? What's the matter?
    Linkara: Phelous, this is an important episode. Everyone loves these "previously on" segments and this is gonna premiere the theme song! But what I'm being told is that we could only spring for one guest star.
    Phelous: Yep, well… everyone's been pretty busy since the Brawl. Hell, I can really only give you five minutes.
    Linkara: But how is this gonna look to the fans? "Oh, he can only bring in one other guy! Clearly Channel Awesome is trying to shun the stupid comic book guy."
    Phelous (looking at watch) Uh huh, yeah… whoops! Sorry, Linkara, time's up.
    Linkara: B-b-but…
    Phelous: Yeah, well, you know how it is, especially when I have to film Street Fighter comedy. (grumbles and stomps off, spouting Angrish)
    Linkara Phelous! Dude, dude, I'm sorry! It was a joke, man… (sighs) Pollo, you wanna come here and save my bacon?
    Pollo: You just leave me out of this.
    (Linkara slumps back on the futon)
    Narrator: And now, the con—
    Linkara: Aw, shut up!

    36-39: Countdown to Final Crisis 
  • At the beginning:
    Linkara: (face in hands) I don't wanna' do it! I don't wanna' talk about it! And I don't wanna' review it! (takes face out of hands) But noooooooo, you people insisted! You just had to keep asking and requesting and demanding that I review this series! Weeeell, fiiiiiiine, you want a review, I'll give you your friggin' review!
  • Forager taking off with Jimmy Olsen, sans pants, and Linkara's awkward response thereto.
  • "COUNTDOWN, STOP KILLING EVERYONE!"
  • Also:
    Linkara: [The editors of Countdown] wanted to introduce a love triangle between Donna [Troy], Kyle [Rayner] and Jason [Todd].
    (awkward pause)
    Linkara: F
    (Cue the "Route 1" track from Pokémon, while a title card reading "Inaudible Profanity. Please stand by" covers the screen)
    Linkara: (waving his gun around haphazardly) ...AND ROLL OVER THEIR FETID CARCASSES FOR THAT IDIOTIC IDEA!!. So, back to our story...
  • "Do I even want to know what she's gonna do with that staff?"
  • Every single time he does Superboy-Prime's whiny fanboy voice: "I don't want this Earth, bring back my Earth! Everything was better on my Earth! THEY'RE RUINING EVERYTHING!! I'll Kill You!! I'll kill you to DEATH!"
    • His nicknames for Superboy-Prime, which include "Stupidboy-Prime", "Spasticboy-Prime", and "Stupidbitch-Pansy".
  • The entire "Previously On" segment to the second part of the Countdown review. Whoever decided to have the BUM, of all people, control all the world's nukes was having a very good brain day.
    • What made that whole segment, though, was the fact that it was a string of unconnected plots that had nothing to do with each other. It was extremely convoluted as well. And after all of that, the "Previously On" segment is capped with "And that whole thing STILL made more sense than Countdown!"
  • "Damn it, [Donna,] stop pointing out the Plot Holes; that's my job!"
  • His fear that many fans will knowingly say "This comic is Re-Todded."
  • The whole "We should ''do'' something!" "Should we ''do'' something?" joke.
    Linkara: YES, YOU SHOULD DO SOMETHING, YOU BORING IDIOTS!
  • Thank You Monitor! But Ray Palmer Is In Another Castle!

    40: Xena # 1 
  • When comparing the bland Xena cover to a flawed, but still more dynamic Amazing Spider-Man issue from the same month:
    Linkara: On the Xena cover, you have this: "Oh, a bodybuilder pose. How fascinating." On the Spider-Man one, you have this: "Holy crap! Impossible Spine Lady— yeah, I know her name is Stunner, no need to comment on it—is holding Spidey by the neck while Dr. Octopus's mechanical tentacles are looming in on them and…" Wow, it really sounds like I'm describing a hentai comic, doesn't it?
  • This:
    Man in comic: Incredible. A single human that has all ten of the known endowments…
    Linkara: Endowments?
    (flips to front cover, zoom in on Xena's breasts)
    Linkara: Wow. Three panels in and they're already making a boob joke.
  • This:
    Mr. R: (facing away from the people he's talking to) She'll kill us all before long!
    Linkara: (with his back to the camera) I don't like fools who face people when they talk to 'em.
  • This:
    Xena: I'm no murderer… I simply punish… the guilty!
    Linkara!Xena: By killing them without due process! (Beat) Wait…
    Linkara: So Xena frags them all, and again, going off about justice and the law and stuff. You know, I don't need some crappy indie comic to do this. I can just watch that awful Sylvester Stallone movie version of Judge Dredd and get the same thing.
    (montage of Stallone as Dredd shouting "I am the law!")
  • And right after it:
    Linkara: Oh yeah, that was the end of the comic. And wow, what a comic, eh?I can just see the advertisements they must've made. "Never before will you learn so little about a character!" "The blandness just sizzles off the page!" "She likes to watch… and that's not nearly as exciting a concept as you'd think it is!"
  • Next, when reading a preview comic from another work by the same publisher:
    Luxura: I am the vampiress Luxura. Some of you may have missed my first appearance in '"Vamperotica'' #1.
    Linkara: Hi, I'm Troy McLuxura. You may remember me from such comics as Boobula and Interview with the Vampire Pornstar.
  • His final word on the comic: "But hey, at least it isn't Countdown!"

    41: Cable # 1 
  • After the latest indication of the evil to come from ancient Egypt, he cuts to a picture of the pyramids with the Imperial March playing.
  • At the end of that review, he's interrupted in his final diatribe of "this comic sucks!" when Linkara-as-Cable bursts in demanding an explanation. Linkara throws a magnet at him to defeat him, then picks up Cable's gun and says "Sweet! New gun!"
  • After a particularly convoluted series of flashbacks: LET'S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!
  • "Cable — Time's up!!" "You lose 200 points, and control of the board goes to the next player!"

    43: Batman: Fortunate Son 
  • During Linkara's Batman: Fortunate Son review, he flips out and rants about how people who overuse the term 'selling out' are a bunch of naive idiots. This doubles as a Crowning Moment Of Awesome as well.
  • "Punk is nothing but death...and crime...and the rage of a beast."
    • Linkara's laughter right after that is also incredibly infectious.
  • While critiquing the art, he proclaims "I mean, it's about as convincing as this!" while dressed in the absolute worst Batman outfit ever.
  • It Makes Sense in Context:
    Batman (yes, the Batman): Like... pigs... From a gun!
    Linkara (Beat) What the Funk 'n Wagnal does that mean?!
  • Linkara reading Crowe's lines with his Superboy Prime voice.
  • "Lots of people see things when they're on drugs! When I'm on drugs, I see Bea Arthur!" *beat* "You should probably forget I said that."
  • Review Cigarettes! A review in every puff! This comic sucks.
  • *picture of Robin looking like an old man* "Gah! What's wrong with Robin?! Batman, do something!" *picture of Batman looking very Off Model* "Bwahahahaha, oh thanks Bruce, I needed that."

    44: Air Raiders # 1 
  • While reading Air Raiders, Linkara comes across the phrase "great disaster" and freaks out over Countdown to Final Crisis again. He runs off, only to walk back onscreen and say "I knew I should have put a window there."
  • "Um, look, guys, I think Spaceballs was joking about that "canned air" thing..."

    45: Nightcat # 1 

    48: Mickey Mantle # 2 
  • "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. Woo woo woo!"
  • "Minnesota once again here to save the day... MINNESOTA!"
  • After the final hit by Mickey Mantle, as the triumphant music plays: "WOW! He did it! He hit the ball! He did it! They held the tension for all of one splash page! They did it! And I still don't care!

    49: Adventures of the Kool-Aid Man # 1 
  • Linkara starts his review of a comic about The Kool-Aid Man with a horrified "WHY???"
  • "The Kool-Aid Man sees you when you're sleeping. (leans in closer) The Kool-Aid Man sees you in your nightmares."
  • The entirety of the review is pretty hilarious, especially his attempts to grasp the logic behind the Kool-Aid Man's world and his enemies.

    50-52: Silent Hill: Dying Inside 
  • Defeating Pyramid Head by putting him in a Pokéball. Wonder if that will come in handy later...
  • Asking for the title card music to be replaced with something as far away from Silent Hill as possible, since the comics have nothing to do with the series. Cue "Footloose".
  • Part Two of his review of Silent Hill: Dying Inside opens with an extraordinarily well-done pastiche of Silent Hill 2, with Linkara as James, 90s Kid as Maria, and Harvey Finevoice as Eddie. And more Ninja-Style Dancing!
  • His reaction to an unknown assailant interrupting the painfully annoying villain with a baseball bat: "It's Mickey Mantle! He's come to save us!"
  • Linkara doing his own parody of Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle Of The Flesh. That is all.
    • "Damn it, Insano! Stop goofing around for two seconds and put Spoony on the phone!"
  • In the "Worst Ending" from the Silent Hill Alt Endings video, Linkara gets stuck in Phantasmagoria 2 and tries calling several numbers for help. 90s kid has an... interesting answering machine, Batman rants at him about rock music, and his call to Spoony gets Dr. Insano instead.
    • The "UFO Ending," which features "Fly Me to the Moon"... sung by Harvey Finevoice. (The inevitable Evangelion flashbacks just make it even more hysterical) And then the credits get to the stinger text at the end, which is usually just a sentence or two, but this time is several paragraphs of ranting about the Fridge Logic inherent in the premise of Silent Hill 4.
  • His parody of the Silent Hill 2 opening in the Dying Inside review. Especially 90's Kid as Maria and Pollo as Laura.
  • His reaction to this line:
    Christabella: Hey, Doc. I'm feeling all tingly in BAD PLACES. You know what that's all about?
    Linkara: What in the hell is up with this comic?!

    53: Maximum Clonage 
  • His one year anniversary review of The Clone Saga is one of these:
    • His musical renditions of padding.
    • When seeing Spidercyde's outfit he just starts laughing: "Perhaps the Jackal left his cloning tube in the sun too long."
    • After revealing that it was originally planned for Mephisto to be behind the clone saga: "But the writers decided that Mephisto had absolutely no place in the Spider-Man universe. Yeah, hindsight's a bitch."
    • "Do a little dance... make a little clone... get down tonight!"
    • "The man responsible for our genetic future, ladies and gentlemen, with all the charm and personality of a 9-year old."
    • "By Diehard's Crotch, what is up with that lady's face!?", "You guys look like Bratz dolls if they grew up!"
    • His voice for the Jackal that sounds like The Monarch
    • This little gem:
    Peter Parker: Should I really trust a jackal?
    Linkara: I don't know, Peter, maybe I should- (Pulls out a cane) HIT YOU WITH MY CLUE-STICK! (proceeds to hit the screen)
    • His psychotic breakdown during to the final issue.
      • Especially him trying to slit his throat with Pyramid Head's knife.
      • "Go, web, go! :D" *throws slinky*
      • I AM THE WALRUS GOO GOO G'JOOB! *punch*
    • "I see the way you're acting like somebody else gets me frustrated."
    • "Fully baked!? What are clones made out of cookie dough!? You just slap a cookie cutter on a big mass of flesh, pop 'em in an Easy Bake Oven and wait two hours!?
  • After Jackal "decides to do a little dance":
    Linkara: (singing) Do a little dance... make a little clone... get down tonight!
    • After Punisher claims to be able to shoot Jackal through Spider-Man and ends this claim with "I can, you know!"
    Linkara: (as Punisher) I totally can! What, you don't believe me when I say I can? You don't think I can? (Beat, sad) Nobody thinks I'm cool anymore...!
  • Also, The Stinger:
    The Jackal: WHEEEEEE!

    54: 22 Brides # 1 
  • "Yeah I'm a Bee Gees fan deal with it!"
    • What, no mention of this gem?: Linkara notices the lack of sense that Libby makes when she kicks a man in the nads, all with enough force to knock the rest of the gang over. Linkara says?
    Linkara: Wow, let me see if I can do that! * puts comic down, gets up and tries to do so* * CRACK!* MY SPINE!
    • As the comic depicts villains surrounding heroes surrounding villains surrounding heroes, each Reveal is accompanied by an ever-higher-pitched Musical Sting.

    55: All-Star Batman and Robin #1- 2 
  • Reading Frank Miller's descriptions of Vicki Vale in a deep voice. Complete with a caption assuring us that this is the actual script.
    • Crazy Steve, that is all.
    • Whenever he narrates the characters repeating the same sentence over and over again. Something about the way he says it leaves me dying.
    "I'm on a date with Bruce Wayne!"
    • "You've been drafted into a war. And you had better not be a fan of rock and roll!"
    • The cover for Superhero Innuendo Monthly, featuring the headlines "Diehard and the reason we want him fighting crime for us!", "Hal Jordan's new look: Yay or nay?" and "This and every other issue: Penises!"
  • This obvious, yet funny reference:
    Vicki Vale: I hate the country. I hate bats.
    Raoul Duke: We can't stop here. This is bat country.
  • Another obvious but funny one:
    Bruce Wayne: There's no way out.
    Torgo: There is no way out of here. It will be dark soon. There is no way out of here.
    Joel: It'll be dark soon.
  • His constant riffing of the comic's repeating dialogue.
    Vicki Vale: It doesn't make any sense. It doesn't make any sense.
    Linkara: Vicki, I know it doesn't. Vicki, I know it doesn't.
  • This:
    Narrator: Vicki Vale. Columnist. Bearing witness.
    Linkara: Lewis Lovhaug. Comic book reviewer. Bearing the pain of this comic.
  • Linkara wondering if anyone would narrate their life like Batman does in the comic. As a melodramatic, brooding narration voice suddenly interrupts him, Linkara promptly picks up a stick.
    Linkara: (pokes the off-screen narrator with the stick) Shut up, ya hippie!
    Brooding Narrator: Aw! Hey! Stop poking me!
  • "So sleep tight, punk." "Punk is nothing but death... and crime... and the rage of a beast."
  • "I'm the goddamn Batman!" "Ladies and gentlemen, we have an internet meme!" (cue The Price Is Right theme)
  • This exchange:
    Batman: Who the hell do I think I am?
    Linkara: You're the goddamn — screw it, you knew where that was going.
  • Linkara's giggling in response to Dick's "lameass Clint Eastwood impersonation" line, before playing a quick Batman Begins montage.

    56: Doom # 1 
  • Linkara doing another parody of the "Random shooting in the dark" gag from Alone in the Dark (2005) during his review of the Doom comic book complete with cameo appearances by Lanipator, the Nostalgia Critic, Nostalgia Chick, Marzgurl, Benzaie, Beary, Angry Joe, and various other members of TGWTG. Even MikeJ makes a game effort.
    • Bennett the Sage and his Nerf gun is the best part.
    • "I AM A MAN!" * PUNCH* "AND A HALF!" * PUNCH* * gets stuck halfway through*
    Linkara: A little help here.
    • My personal favourite was MikeJ part. He's looking at the others, cup of tea in a hand, then he sees the camera. His reaction?
    "Oh, uh... bang, bang, bang... bang bang bang. Booom."
    • While holding the cup of tea like a gun, no less.
    • Beary shooting Lanipator.
    • Lin-Ku shooting Ed Glaser.
    • Linkara reciting the marine's lines in an impression of the Ultimate Warrior.
    "You hear me, George Foreman? You're next!...Hoak Hogan!!!"
  • "KNOCK KNOCK WHO'S THERE ME ME ME ME ME ME ME!"

    58: Bimbos in Time # 1 
  • The intro to the review. Him pinching his sinuses, flatly stating the comic's title, and rolling to the credits.
  • When showing footage of the movies made by the same director as the Bimbos in Time movie. A mulleted man gets attacked by a Zombie and Linkara yells "No! Not Jeff Foxworthy!"
  • "Tim Curry?" Cue obligatory Sweet Transvestite joke.
  • "Why is everybody in this comic a f*cking bimbo?!?!?!?!"
  • "Of course! Don't you know anything about sci-"
  • Linkara severely overthinks one character.
    Linkara: "And she's the niece of Sherlock Holmes! ...Wait, does that mean Mycroft Holmes had a daughter? ...Why am I thinking about this?!?"
  • "And I am the walrus, koo koo ka-choo!"
  • Linkara repeatedly listening to music on his headphones to avoid having to read the comic.
  • Linkara's response to one of the comic's "attempts" at "humor"
    Linkara: "I'm only on page FOUR. This comic is FORTY-EIGHT PAGES LONG. Expect a lot of crying in this episode."
  • Linkara's reaction to the "it's in my contract" joke - staring at the camera (apparently comatose) while the sad trombone plays.
    Linkara: *shakes head* Sorry, must've slipped into a brief coma, was there a lame joke? Okay.
  • Just the way he says "I had a dog named Ashley onec", before the Typo Counter immediately goes up.
  • "By the way, this comic was a donation—AND I STILL FEEL LIKE I WAS RIPPED OFF!"
  • "What looks like a nuclear explosion occurs. And for a second, there's that fleeting hope that maybe they're all dead and the comic's over. Especially when I see that one of the sound effects is 'poop'."
  • His confused reaction to "I know so you Bimbo!!", resulting in the Typo Counter adding "???" to the end.

    59: The Dark Knight Strikes Again Part 1 

    60: Extreme Super Christmas Special # 1 

    61: James Bond Jr. # 3 
  • Saying all of James Bond Jr.'s lines in a Sean Connery impression just to make them sound even more ridiculous.
    • And then there's Linkara wondering why James Bond's nephew is called James Bond Jr.
    • "Getting shipped to Peru in a tank does seem a bit far-fetched." "Geez, you know it's bad when the characters admit that the premise is weak."
    • "Wow! Grass! We don't have anything like that outside the woods."
    • "The James Bond Jr. Show will be right back after this ad for expensive crap you don't need."
    • "Russian? French? German? Tommy Wiseau?"

    62: Top 15 Missed Opportunities of AT 4 W 
  • Top 15 Missed Opportunities of AT4W: Two words; baseball cards.
    • Ma-Ti's using Linkara's own 'I AM A MAN!' punch against him.
    • The Mr. T and the T Force letters column:
    Letters column: "Instead of having [superpowers], Mr. T uses his head to get himself out of tricky situations!"
    Linkara: "Hmhmhmhmhmmmmmm!" * fingersnap* * Montage of the "Mr. T superpower count" from the original review incrementing*
    • POWERHOUSE EXCITEMENT!!!
    • "In the weather today, a cold front is moving in through the north and generally making things unpleasant. In other news, celebrities embarrass themselves by their utter incompetence when it comes to their sex lives and, somehow, gossip about rich people qualifies as news you need to be concerned with. In the world of sports…" * thud*
    • "Bees, my God." "NO, NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES! AAAAAAH!
    • His mourning version of convoy.
    • After seeing a giant hologram of the Jackal's head: "I'm busy finding 5 teenagers with attitude!"
    • A Jeff Foxworthy-style redneck one-liner in response to the redneck communists of Sinnamon.
    "Now listen up, y'all - if yer yellin' 'YEE-HAW' at the sound of the bourgeoisie getting kicked in the pants, you just might be...the urban proletariat."
