Mike: Hey, the guy who voted for Ralph Nader has no right to talk about hopelessness.
- During Trinity's death scene:
Mike: Ow, ow, ow, OW!
Ow, you're leaning on the poles that skewered my liver, OW!
My god you have driven that one pole DEEPER IN MY LEFT VENTRICLE AND IT HURTS ABOUT FIVE TIMES AS MUCH!
Apparently you didn't have the pleasure of KNEELING ON A POLE STICKING OUT OF MY LUNGS, AND YOU JUST HAD TO TRY, OW OW OW OH GOD OW OW!!
Kevin: And yet you still have your elbow PUSHING AGAINST THE THING THAT TORE MY SPINE OUT, AM I NOT BEING CLEAR?!
It had nothing to do with you SITTING DIRECTLY ON MY SHATTERED PELVIS LIKE YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW!!!
Bill: My thought was "please if I ever died horribly impaled on a bunch of poles, please let my boyfriend not be such a nob that he repeatedly leans on them", so, it's kind of ironic.
- After when Neo has seemingly defeated Agent Smith:
: Great, perfect, done. Keanu's destroyed the evil Hugo
, and there's peace in the Matrix failure. Well, guys, I'm gonna grab my fishing rod, and thing those leeches out of the fridge—
Bill: Uh, better keep those leeches in the fridge, Kevin; I don't think we're out of the woods yet.
Mike: Wait, those were leeches in the fridge?
Kevin: What do you mean, "were"?
Mike: I—I thought they were anchovies. I wondered why anchovies would stick to the roof of mouth, and my hands, and my lip. And crawl off my caesar salad.
- "And the movie climax is —quite appropriately— in sewage."
- A less happy view of the ending than was intended.
And so, as the sun rises on the Matrix, most of humanity is still enslaved by the robot overlords, while the rest continue to rot in a damp cave with poor ventilation, miles underground. What a glorious ending
to over six hours of movie.
- When Mifune is yelling while fighting off Sentinels on his mech:
Kevin: You know, there's no dumb action sequence that can't be made dumber by a guy yelling like a wounded grizzly.
- The scene where Peter visits Aunt May in the hospital. Mike keeps intentionally screwing up both Peter and Aunt May's names, eventually leading to Bill, using the sweetest tone of voice imaginable, to ask Mike to go to hell.
- During Harry and Peter's climactic fight:
Harry: I protected you in high school. Now I'm gonna kick your ass!
Mike: The five-minute scene of them going "Oh yeah?" "Yeah!" "Oh yeah?" "Yeah!" was wisely cut for time.

: ...and three minutes into a Kevin Smith movie. Two and a half if it's Cop Out
- This moment:
Khan: Admiral Kirk... sent seventy of us into exile on this barren sand heap with only the contents of these cargo bays to sustain us.
Chekhov: You lie! On Ceti Alpha V, there was life! A fighting chance-

- When Joachim points out their sensors would be useless in the nebula:
Khan: Why are we slowing?
Mike (as Joachim): Look, do you want to drive?
Joachim: We can't follow them into the nebula, sir. Our shields would be useless.
Kevin: Speaking of useless, what do the other ten guys in Khan's control room do?!
- When Khan lifts debris and throws it out of the way:
- "Spock now joins the ranks of pointy-eared gods like, um, Frodo and... Satan and... Prince Namor, but that's all."
- As the Ceti eels go into Chekov and Terrel by the ears:
Now Party In The USA
will be stuck in their heads for weeks, poor bastards.
Joachim: Enterprise will wait. She's not GOING ANYWHERE!
Bill (as Joachim): We, on the other hand, have a BIRTHDAY LUNCH at Chuck E. Cheese's, and we will not BE LATE!

Mike Nelson: Hm, you know what, that's easy enough to figure out, let me just get out my tricorder here, punch in a few settings, "beep", "beep, beep, beep", adjust for fluxating magnetic fields, "beep", "beep, beep", take a residual stupidity reading, "nee-re-re-re-re-re-re", Kevin I'm getting very high readings indeed, sir!
Kevin Murphy: There must be emanations of asininity fouling your readings. Let me take my own, "click, click, buzz, whir, click". Yes, our data sets correspond, "click".
Mike Nelson: Well, okay. There you have it: scientific proof that this is the dumbest-ass Star Trek movie ever made.
Kevin Murphy: Click, buzz, whir.
Mike Nelson: Nee-re-re-re-re-re-re.

- Bill (as a Romulan who got stabbed by Sulu and falls): "Tell my bald wife and bald children how bald I think they are!"
- When the planet-destroying Red Matter is launched:
Bill: "Launch the red matter." Hey, you know, that's diner slang for when somebody orders a bowl of tomato soup.
Kevin: Hi I'm "Charlie the Alien Death Machine"! Kill you later! *laughs*
- As Vulcan is about to get consumed by a blackhole created by the red matter...
: Captain, the gravitational sensors are off the scale. IF my calculations are correct, they're creating a single energy...that will... consume the planet
Bill (as Spock): "Za" planet?
Mike (as Chekov): Yes sir. The whole thing.
Bill (as Spock): "Za"... whole "zing"?
Mike (as Chekov): Yes, and everything around it!
Bill (as Spock): "Everyzing"?
Mike (as Chekov): Look, we're in great danger!
Bill (as Spock): Yeah, I get that; I take it pretty seriously. But...really? "Ve're" in great danger?
Mike (as Chekov) Yes sir, very [sounding like weary] great danger.
- When Spock tries to evacuate the Vulcan council and his mom:
- After planet Vulcan is destroyed
McCoy: Damn it, man, I'm a doctor, not a physicist!

Jar Jar: We've no nuttin' moola to trade (or something stupid like that).
Mike: Look, GO TO HELL.
- And this one:
Jar Jar: WEESA GOIN HOOOOOOME!
Kevin: Oh, do so COMPLETELY shut up.
- Kevin actually vomits for five minutes while Jar-Jar talks.
- One scene has an unfortunate angle of Jar-Jar as well, as Jar Jar swims away from the camera for a few minutes.
Mike: Ah, thank you for giving us an unhindered look at the business end of America's most loathed character.
- And this surprisingly classy discussion of just how Jar-Jar annoys people:
Kevin: See, my opinion, the Jar-Jar thing isn't so inherently racist as it is more broadly offensive.

Mike: I see, so, he bugs your soul?

Remember when Macbeth
said that life was a tale told by an idiot? I actually think he meant to say Star Wars Episode One
is a tale told by an idiot.
- [as a battle droid] "Rommel, you magnificent son of a bitch, I read your book."
- The Running Gag of Kevin mispronouncing the names of both Padme and Naboo. This eventually turns into a game of coming up with Star Wars names more horrible than the real ones, which they end up accomplishing in the middle of the climax.

- On C-3PO meeting R2-D2:

Followed by Kevin and Mike cheering that Anakin is KO'd
: I'm a master of the lightsaber and even I'm
bored. Let's get it on, people!

: Yes, sir. Chad Vader
: Was that actually 'Pontius Pilate', 5th Procurator of Judaea? From 26 to 36 AD? Mike
- After Shmi dies and Anakin starts his killing spree on the Tuskan village:
: Uh-oh! Kubrick face
: It's the fake Wagner music, makes him insane.
- Kevin's opinion of the Romantic Plot Tumor:
(Shot of the Clone Army) Kevin:

Except, you know, the last time we saw these two.

- And of course from this point forward through the remaining 4 movies (and Holiday Special), the Running Gag about how much Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader hates sand.
- When Anakin is regaining consciousness after being shocked by Dooku's Force Lightning
- "On May 16, 2002, roughly fifty minutes into midnight showings all across the nation, theater owners in every state witnessed a strange phenomenon.

Star Wars IV: A New Hope
- [During the scrolling letters]
Bill: Meanwhile, Vice Chancellor Ugga Bugga and Darth Buttcrack are rendezvousing on the planet Ovaltine, where the rebel leader B.B. Snausageberry is fighting the dreaded Cameltoeians. How's that?

Bill: Oh, much obliged.
- Kevin finally cracks during the space pod battle:
Oh. Oh no. Tell me this movie won’t have podracing, will it? ‘Cause, ‘cause if so, Mike, I’ll pay yah good money to let me out of here now. I will sign the deed to my house over to you! Mike:
Kevin, relax. Enjoy this long, long sequence coming up of Jar Jar Binks doing funny stuff. Kevin: (screams) No, no! Mike, please! Let me out! Seriously. I will kill all your enemies. Please! Mike:
Here, breath into this paper bag.
- When Anakin meets Padme (who is wearing her hair in the bun style) again:

Bill: [during the opening Battle of Coruscant] Bad thing: I don't know who is fighting who, where, about what. Good thing: I don't care!
- This particular exchange after one of Yoda's, um... yeah:
Yoda: I hope right you are.
Kevin Murphy: True that is, Mike. An idiot sounds he like.
Bill Corbett: And yet by many sci-fi geeks beloved he is, though Muppet he is also, and tiring his use of anastrophe is.
Michael J. Nelson: Also true that is. Annoying it very is. Off it pisses me.
- This exchange:
Mace Windu: I sense a plot to destroy the Jedi.
Mike: That's funny; we can't sense ANY plot whatsoever!

Obi-Wan: Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!

Bill: From my point of view, a monkey wrote this script with his PENIS!

- You're not a mother*BLEEP*ing master.
- As Mace Windu:
- Any and all jabs at Hayden Christiansen's talent...or rather, lack thereof.
- On Anakin's transformation into James Earl Jones:
Bill: He can't do it all at once, or it'll kill him! He's gotta work his way up the manly scale. First he turns into Lance Bass, then Rupert Everett—
Mike: —then Scott Stapp, David Duchovny, Wesley Snipes, Russell Crowe, Rosie O'Donnell, and THEN James Earl Jones.
- This exchange:
- On Palpatine's last line following Anakin's becoming of a Sith lord:
Palpatine: ONCE MORE THE SITH WILL RUUUUUULE THE GALAXY... (voice lowering with each word) ...aaand...weee...shall have...peeeeeeeeeeaaaace.
Riffers: (clapping) Oh lovely, marvelous, Darth Actor, ladies and gentlemen, Darth Actor.

Bill: If this slowly rotates him facedown into a pie, the entire journey will have been worth it.
- As the Empire watches the Death Star under construction:
Kevin Murphy: (as Tarkin)
Yeah, so Darth, a couple of weeks we'll start building it, then we can take that decal off the wall of the window. Until then, looks cool, eh? Bill: (as Vader)
So, where are the ladies on this ship? Mike: (as Palpatine)
Ah, my son. You have much to learn about the Dark Side. Bill: (as Vader) NO-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Kevin:
Ah, you see, Bill? That one seems kind of warranted.
- When the Wookies are preparing to charge:
- Any and all Palpatine/Sideous Old Man jokes.
I want a muffin.
Oh, my robes!
I want a Fig Newton!

- "I believe I have the right to know if you are pants-crapping insane!"
- The I Am Very British persona they give Obi-Wan.
- Mike decides to take advantage of the Palpatine/Mace Windu fight and uses the time to share a (surprisingly detailed) recipe for dip with his friends and the listeners. Made funnier by Bill and Kevin trying to listen to him and pay attention to the film at the same time.
Bill: ...Uh, Samuel has the guy pinned down now, Mike.
- "What do you think, penis-headed ghost of Hamlet's father?"
- The guys making fun of Yoda's speech pattern.
- When Anakin is complaining to Palpatine
Palpatine: It is upsetting to me to see that the Council doesn't seem to fully appreciate your talents.
Mike: WHAT TALENTS?!
- During the Order 66 Scene
Bill: Kevin, uh, execute Order 66 against Mike, can you?
Kevin (imitating a clone trooper): It will be done, my lord.
(Blaster fire, Kevin laughs evilly. Mike groans in pain.)
Bill: Ke — Kevin, what the hell?
Kevin: Uh wait, uh, 66 is to kill Mike without question wasn't it?
Bill: No, that's Order 67! I just e-mailed you about the change! 66 was to pick up some of that Hawaiian bread on the way over to Mike's [place], 'cause he's making a spinach dip.
Kevin: Now Mike's dead. Dang it. Good one, Kevin.
Mike: (grunts) No, it's — it's okay; Kevin missed.
(Bill and Kevin laugh and sigh in relief)
Bill: Though it is good to know that you're prepared to kill Mike without question, Kevin. I — I do appreciate that.
Kevin: Ah, yeah.
Mike: But, uh, you're still bringing Hawaiian bread, right?
Kevin: Mike, please, who's your BUDDY?
Mike: (Laughing) You.
Kevin: That would be ME, Mike!
Bill: The guy who would kill you without—
Mike: — kill me without question.
- When Obi-Wan's lightsaber lands in front of Commander Cody when he loses it while chasing Grievous:
Bill (as Commander Cody): What the-?! Hey! Who dropped their lipgloss?!
- ALL of the guys comments about poor old Ki Adi Mundi and his weird-looking head, which start off fairly high brow (hes certainly sitting erect) but eventually just devolve into this
Mike (during the scene where Mundi is leading an army on a snow covered planet): Santa Penis-Head defends the North Penis-Pole!
- And immidiately afterwards when the clones turn on him
Kevin: (as Mundi) Wha? No please NOT IN THE JUNK!!! ....well since im nearly all junk DO YOUR WORST!!!
- And then Mike's eulogy which finally causes Kevin to tire of the gag.
Mike: Imagine the eulogy, "Ya know Bob was so much fun to be around, he would rise to the occasion, he was never down, he was always tumescent, he never just mope around the office all flacid like—
- From Mundi's scene, this joke about him looking like Santa:
Ki Adi Mundi: Come on!

Bill: Good point.
(Mike laughs in amazement at the acrobats.)

Like his single leather boot there. (pause)
This is the very same scene that is playing on a constant
loop in Ryan Seacrest's brain. (beat)

Bill: Kinda kill the moment. (a few seconds pass)

Kevin: (as the lead acrobat) And that was the introduction, folks! Now let's get on with the show!
Mike: (as Malla) Would you turn off that stupid video game?!
Bill: (as Lumpy) It's not a video game, Mom. It's a video game system!
- During the first scene with Chewbacca's family, Bill gets the most obvious joke out of the way:
Well, terrifying thought, but I'm charging ahead with it anyway: If you're a furry

Mike: Why do none of his memories involve his family in any way?
Bill: I'm not following. How can you tell this is his memories?

And crack the bones and suck the marrow out
Slice into your brain for sandwiches
And maybe have an omelette made of...

What? In dog years, she's like 14 hours!
- Mike & Bill's "super gay Volturi voices".
- To elaborate, for the entire credits they do nothing but emit Frank'n'Furter esque groans while making suggestive comments about the names in the credits.
- "Oh for the love of god, do something, you apprehensive, brain damaged...mouse-haired...sea cucumber!"
- This insight into Meyer's writing:
Carlisle: We didn't think it (Bella's pregnancy) was even possible.
- "Go ahead, tell me what big teeth I have, everybody does!"
- During Bella's nightmare about her wedding day, where her human family and friends are all dead...
[Bella raises her hand from her dress, and notices it's blood-stained]
Mike: [as Bella] "Oh, today of all days!"
- As Bella is shaving her legs during one of the pointless montages: "Somewhere the most disturbed man in the universe is saying 'That's not the razor Bella would use'".
- When Bella calls Edward and tells him she thinks she might be pregnant:
Bill (As Edward, thinking): Don't. Eat. Baby.
- During the wedding, as Bella walks down the aisle—outside, in broad daylight:
Mike: So, now you're mad when the vampires don't sparkle!?
Bill: (frustrated) I don't—I don't know! I don't know what I want anymore!
- During the "Birthing scene" when the trio catch the first sight of Renesemee's bloody emergence
- The guys simply cracking up at Aro's Squee over Renesmee, and saying they can't possibly make it any funnier.
- When Aro reads Edward's mind:
Kevin (as Aro): You like The Spin Doctors! You have all of their albums, HA-HA-HA!
- And again, when Aro has that doofy, far-way, half-stoned look on his face while doing his telepathy trick:
Aro: ... Ahhh.
Kevin (again, as Aro): ... My lower back just cracked.
- While they're mind-reading Edward:
Bill (as Renesmee looking up at Bella): Mommy, is that the guy you said bats for the other team?
- Earlier, as a trio of them emerge from the shadows:
Kevin (as Aro):
When we're done here, can we swing by the Hello Kitty
Bill (as one of the others): Oh, yes.
Cue Frank 'n Furter Moans.
- And later the mass Frank 'n Furter Moan when the Volturi's army appears
- And earlier, when they learn of Renesmee's existence:
Bill (as one of the Volturi when Irina walks into their chambers): Ick! A girl! What's a girl doing in "Gay Vampire Book Club"?!
- The culmination of five films' worth of mustache jokes, when Charlie declares of Jacob's wolf form "It's like some kinda full body mustache!"
- The sheer contempt and disgust they feel towards "Pedowolf" Jacob and the endless pedophilia jokes they hurl in his direction whenever he is on screen.
- For example, when Edward is defending Renesmee's nature as a hybrid, with Jacob protecting her in the background by their car:
Edward: She has blood in her veins! You can feel her warmth.
Mike: Not you, Jacob!
Bill (as Jacob): Aw, come on!
- "Greetings, blood-rich human progenitor. I mean, hi dad."
- This little gem:
Edward: It's painful, but it's bearable,
Mike: His review of their marriage so far.
- When CGI Renesmee first shows up:
Charlie: She has your eyes, Bella.
Mike: Its like someone photoshopped your eyes onto her face.
- And even later still, when Renesmee is a bit older:
Charlie: Look at you, you've grown half a foot!
Mike: It's stickin' out of your neck, revolting!
- When the wolves sense incoming vampires:
Jacob: Whoever's coming wasn't invited.
Kevin: His special psychic super-power is "e-vite response awareness."
- As the credits roll:
Kevin: OH GOD NO!!! NOOO!!!
- Bella and Jacob talking in the car:
Bella: 27 vampires...
- Every time Emmet opens his mouth, it's always followed by one of the Riffers snapping at him. For example:
Emmet (just as Jacob's about to explain "imprinting"): This should be good.
Bill: Damn it Emmet, who gave you a line?!
Emmet: Done already?
Bill: Damn it Emmet, stop saying the lines!
- And even later, when they're discussing Renesmee:
Emmet: We're not even sure she is a newb-
Bill: Damn it, who gave Emmet another line?!
- After Bella and Edward are "intimate" for the first time after her transformation:
Bella (to Edward): You really were holding back before.
Mike: With the post-coital sobbing, that is.
- At the end of the "fight":
Kevin (as Edward): Beat
Did we mention she's named "Renesmee"?
Bill (as a Volturi): THE CHILD MUST DIE!
- At the beginning when Bella and Edward are once again issuing mumbly declarations of love and Kevin's frustration at how repetitive this is
Bella I love you...
Edward I love you...
Kevin Oh, they love each other?!
well that hadn't been made clear to me over the course of the eight hours of film leading up to this (speaking in an increasingly enraged and frustrated tone)
which consisted entirely of these two... IDIOTS!!! SITTING IN A FIELD OF BUTTERCUPS!!! MUMBLING ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!!!!
- Their irritation with Garrett never shutting up about how he was in the American Revolution, until finally they just have him say apropos of nothing, "Crispus Attucks, my dear. Crispus Attucks."
- "My fake daaaaad!" "That guy's fake daaaaad!"
- During the opening scene:
Mike: Oh...Oh, do you really get to use the Holocaust in your silly little comic book movie?
Bill: It doesn't seem fair, but I guess they're doin' it...
- On Wolverine's facial hair:
Mike: You know, I don't think the Martin Van Buren mutton chops quite cut it anymore, now that it's not 1825 and all."
Bill: I think he should try a beard with no mustache for a fresher, more 1863 look.
- "Shouldn't he get back to the University of Michigan and start being their mascot?"
- "Cerebro?" "Magneto?" "Yes, Cerebro." "Why, thank you, Magneto!" "Hello, Cerebro." "Yes, Magneto." "Well, Magneto, I guess." "Cerebro."
- On Cerebro (their favorite thing in the whole movie):
Bill: Such a subtle name.
Mike: Yeah, he nearly called it "Brains A-Poppin'."
- A nice Take That at a certain other movie in the series:
Charles: This is a school for gifted mutants.
Wolverine: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
Mike: Then you've never seen X-Men 3.
- This hilarious bit
Magneto: Because there is no land of tolerance. There is no peace. Not here or anywhere else. Women and children, whole families destroyed. Simply because they were born different from those in power.
Mike: Fine, you can marry your boyfriend.
X-Men: The Last Stand
Magneto (to Xavier): YOU SHOULD HAVE KILLED ME WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE!!
Bill: Well now it sounds like Christmas at the Corbett home.
