Funny: Ghost Stories

Given that this series has one of the only officially-sanctioned gag dubs, it's only natural that there would be many instances of this. Hell, the entire freaking dub is the very definition of Crowning Moment Of Funny. Moments are divided by episode, but running gags are listed first.

Please note this page is a work in progress.

  • The banter between the construction foreman and his hapless lackey.
    • "Just [verb] the [noun], [noun]-[verb]er!" "Sure thing… jackass."
  • Any time the dub makes fun of Engrish.
    • "NANIIII??!"
  • Any time the dub lampshades the Off Model animation.
  • A lot of things Momoko says qualify.
  • Mr Sakata's obsession with his rival Hadley.

Episode 1
  • Reiichiro: "Get back in here or you'll get your head chopped off!"
    • And later: "Now remember kids, just say no… to everything."
  • Gramps: "Why you want to live in your dead wife's house is beyond me. It's sick! You're sick!!"
    • His only other line: "When this bitch kicks, I'm movin' to Vegas."
  • Satsuki: "Monsters only get evil people like Republicans and we're not old enough to vote!"
  • Momoko: "HaveyouacceptedJesusasyourpersonalsaviour?"
  • Satsuki: "Kaya just showed up on the day of our mother's funeral... Our DEAD mother. You feel bad now?"
  • Satsuki: "Principals always look like lesbians." (one of the many early throwaway lines they turned into a Running Gag)
    • Keiichiro: "What's a lesbian?"

Episode 2
  • Satsuki lampshading an Off Model moment: "Oh wow convulsion that was weird. Okay…"
  • Mr Sakata's entreaty to the students to use a cursed toilet: "Don't hold it in. All your butts'll explode."
  • The principal: "Open your books and turn to page whatever!"
    • That same scene: "Where's your teacher? Better go check the girls' locker room…

Episode 3
  • This exchange during when the kids decide to wish upon the cursed steps…
    Satsuki: I want a huge allowance and breasts… when I get older.
    Hajime: And when I get older, I want to fondle said breasts.
  • This bit of Lull Destruction just before the episode's halfway point:
    Keita: (after a basketball backboard falls on him) Aren't any of you bastards gonna help me?!?
    • And a few scenes later (the next day in-story)…
      Hajime (nonchalantly) Keita's dead.
  • The Take That at the end of the episode against Chris Patton and Greg Ayres.
  • This episode contains the beginning of the Running Gag that Keiichiro is mentally deficient.
    Keiichiro: (babbles incoherently and runs off)
    Amanojaku: I think [Satsuki]'s right. You are retarded.

Episode 5
  • This exchange, demonstrating Momoko's hypocrisy
    Satsuki: (seeing the ghost runner) Nice ass.
    Momoko: *gasp!* Do not lust in your hea—Jesus you're right.
    • Becomes something of a Brick Joke when the ghost is facing his own inner demon…
      Satsuki: (voice-in-head) Keiichiro believes in you! Nice ass. Keiichiro believes in you! NICE ass!
  • The principal when he tells off Satsuki and Hajime…
    "Do you know what these parents'd do to me if we canceled? I'd have hear about little Billy and Suzie, and there's not enough booze in my office!"
  • This…
    Leo: Oh-my-god-oh-my-god-what-the-hell-is-happening-here-these-are-the-fastest-lip-flaps-I've-ever-had-to-sync!!
  • Satsuki's lampshade hanging of a Dull Surprise moment.
    "Hold on....Give me a sec....But this hurricane!?"

Episode 7
  • "Thepeopleinmyhouselooklikemyfatherandmybrotherafteraneyemastersexambutit'snotthem!"
    • "Yeahboogitadidggitdagoogitydigdigdigtikikiti!!"
  • This line from Hajime…
    "My B.S. Meter's goin' DING! I can read. Not very well, but I can! And THOSE! LETTERS! ARE! BACKWARDS! *Beat* Hello? Backwards? Mirror image?"
  • Satsuki's Lull Destruction in the climax, poking a little fun at the animation…
    "Whoa. Whoa~! Wow. This is some trippy shit, homes!"
  • Finally, Amanojaku's Lull Destruction at the very end of the episode.
    "So is this the real world, or the mirror world? Doesn't that freak you out? I mean, seriously, isn't that just whack crap? I'm playin' with your mind, man. And you know what the best part is? I'm not even high! Not a bit. Totally sober."

Episode 9
  • This one is pretty much a Crowning EPISODE of Funny. Nearly every single line is gold.
  • At the beginning of the episode, when Satsuki sees Mio for the first time:
    "Ohhh, her... Ohhhhhh... Ewwwwww..."
  • Just about every single word that comes out of Mio's mouth in the second half of the episode.
    "I know now that it could never work between us! As much as we wanted to it could never be! Not because you're a rabbit, but because you're black..."
  • Mio lampshades the fact that she's doing every cliche thing you're not supposed to do in a horror setting.
    "This the part where I foolishly trust you not to kill me. …And stick my hand in the cage!"
  • Mio's reaction upon seeing Shirotabi's offspring.
    "YOU TWO-TIMING SON OF A BITCH! WHOSE GONNA TAKE CARE OF THESE LITTLE BASTARDS?!"

Episode 12
  • Turning what was meant to be a touching pinkie-promise moment into "pull my finger".

Episode 13
  • Hearing Tamaki express his love for boobs as Da Vinci is priceless.
  • "Let's see… Purple. For your hair. *heh* Can't tell this is a goddamn anime.

  • From episode 12, this line from Satsuki: "I come from a long line of quasi-lesbian ghost killers! I'm not afraid of your ugly draggy ass!"
  • Amanojaku's greatest line: "Run! She's a ghost AND a bitch!"
  • The mirror episode has a lot of this:
  • Episode 3 has a Take That against Chris Patton and Greg Ayres, Hajime and Leo's voice actors near the end.
    • And then Episode 12 has one for Amanojaku's voice actor, Rob Mungle.
  • From the Da Vinci episode:
    Satsuki: It's Maria Shriver!
    Da Vinci: That's Mrs. Schwarzenegger to you!"
  • A lot of things Momoko says qualify:
    Momoko: Verizon! Like Jesus, it never stops working for you.
