Nancy: Like a very long, fat snake with flippers, a head shaped like a horse's, and a back that humps when it swims.
Joe: That pretty much describes everyone you've ever dated, doesn't it, Frank?
"Oh, no! She wrecked her roux!" And George just says it in the most melodramatic, sarcastic tone ever.
Shadow at the Water's Edge
The Reveal that Kasumi deliberately hid her will so that only her two daughters could find it...and only if they worked together. This was a woman who had to mediate a lot of sibling fights.
Alibi in Ashes
Bess lamenting her overindulgence in ice cream at the end of Alibi. She's watching a suspect at the ice cream store, and to keep her cover up she had to keep ordering ice cream. All through the day. It's even funnier if you never ate ice cream when playing asher.
The Deadly Device
The credits scene where Frank calls and- having discovered the culprit's true identity and fearing for her life- makes a desperate confession of love to Nancy over the phone...only to be cut off by the answering machine. And later, his sheepish retraction of said confession.
Deirdre: Hey you know, you should volunteer at neurological study places, because you have been knocked out a lot, my friend.
Nancy: I'll keep that in mind.
Deirdre: Maybe not the safest place to keep it in your case.
In The Deadly Device, you can ask Ryan to help distract Victor so you can snoop in his office by getting him to yell at her. After a few times of this she draws a graph of how it's negatively affecting her personal well-being, complete with doodling in the margins that involves a frowny face, a dog on a skateboard, and a dragon.
"'I am glad you and Ned are back together. You go together like peanut butter and jelly. When youíre apart, itís like peanut butter and sadness. Or jelly and uncomfortable silences. Either way, youíre looking at a sandwich that no one wants, and probably no one will buy it ever. A world where Ned and Nancy are not together as a couple is as disturbing as it is dangerous to our interstellar plane of reality-' You know what, I'm just going to stop reading there."
Phantom of Venice
It's really only applicable if you're a fan of Doctor Who but the main villain being called Il Dottore (the Doctor) is quite amusing.
A hint: "Ack! What do you think I am? An insurance salesman? A pair of underage detectives? A starstruck teenager? A washed up police officer? An elderly housekeeper? A parrot?"
A reason for being: "Ack! Who do you think I am? A librarian? A witless actress? A retired schoolteacher? The hapless owner of a ski lodge? A kidnapped teenage reporter? A ne'er do well curator? A freaked out home owner? An amusement park owner? A tour operator? A ranch owner? A neighbour? A distant friend? A clueless socialite? A worried investor? An entomologist?"
Some spice in my life:note (The culprits who cause the mysteries- be careful of spoilers)"Ack! Who do you think I am? A gun-toting thug? A washed up actor? An antiques dealer? A diamond thief? An old man? An art aficionado? A hillbilly? An art director? A whale lover? A flannel wearing cuisiner? A snivelling brat? A quack? A social climber? A flaneuse? A two-headed monster?

Failing the dancing minigame in Design. "Well, ahm sorry!"
At one point in Alibi in Ashes Alexei gets mad at Bess for breaking a vase in his antique store as soon as she walks in. He simply tries to shoo you off if you attempt to talk to him again. This exchange occurs:
Bess: You're really mean!
Alexei: I can live with that. Now go make friends with the outside world!
Michael: Oh wow... Let's try talking to him again.
Michael: Oh, oh, aww... I thought he was going to say "out" again!
Seeing him freaking out over the minigames in Secret of the Old Clock is simply hilarious. It's very odd yet funny seeing Michael, a typically mellow and nice kind of guy, freaking out over losing mini-golf and being unable to do the sewing game right. It gets even funnier with the chase scene at the end.
"Okay, well, what is supposed to happen is that Brady disappears to, uh...do whatever Brady does, write a letter to Jane Penvellyn, maybe...You know, I actually had to look up Jane's name in order to make that joke, that's a reference to Nancy Drew: Blackmoor Manor and, uh- I don't believe this! I checked on Wikipedia, and somebody's written a whole history of the Penvellyn family. Somebody has way too much time. They've got like a three-page article with the generations of the Penvellyn family going back- going to twenty-four generations. Somebody's got way too much free time. And this is from a guy who's made, like a hundred Nancy Drew videos, okay? Way too much free time! I'm sorry, guys."
And about a minute after that, in response to a certain discovery:
