- Crowning Moment of Funny: Volume 10. "A corpse is a corpse/Of course, of course/And no-one can talk to a corpse, of course..."
- Earlier example, also from Numata: when Sasayama, er, "persuades" the Kurosagi crew to do some charity work at an old folk's home, he offers to use his corpse-dowsing ability to figure out who will die next. It works.
- From Vol 6:
Sasayama: It isn't going to be one of those things where I'm going to open it, and there's going to be this woman inside with all her limbs cut off, but still alive?Karatsu: ...what?Sasayama: Nothing... Just something that happened to me once. Anyway, ever since then, I've had this trauma about opening anything bigger than a breadbox.Numata: No worries, man! One, it's a he, two, he's got all his limbs, and three, he's definitely dead!
- From the first volume:
Sasaki: I say we use this money as a start-up capital...and find the others all around us who need a service for their last bodies...The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service.Karatsu: Tell me again...Why'd we agree to her idea...?Numata: Because we're all completely unemployable?Karatsu: Oh yeah..right.
- Yet another from Numata: "She's dropping science like Galileo dropped the orange..."
