    • Also in The Dark Knight, playing "You Got the Touch" when the Batmobile transforms into a Bat-Pod.
    • His blaming a car crash on Deanna Troi...twice.
    • "The Batmobile lost its wheel and the Joker got away..." —it did and he did!
    • "The Batpod. So called because.......the Batpod."
    • Chuck mentions the Joker's Multiple-Choice Past, and gives his own idea for an origin story: on Superfriends, Batman was trying to come up with cooler examples of his villains to impress Superman, and unfortunately let Aquaman come up with the idea of a psychotic killer clown, meaning Batman himself had to create the Joker.
      • The gist of which was Batman setting out to screw with a random clown until he turned evil.
    • After The Joker does his thing with a pencil:
      "That was really good. Do you do birthday parties?"

    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers 
  • Quite a few moments to be found in the review of The Two Towers, among them the shot of the massive supply of potatoes that the refugees are loading into Helms Deep, accompanied by Sam reciting "PO-TA-TOES!"
    • The numerous jokes as how badly abused Gollum ends up — at the hands of the heroes:
      "At least our spine broke our fall, precious..."
    • Chuck claiming that if Elmo were real, he'd look like Gollum.
    • The caption of Théoden on the battlements of Helms Deep, as it starts to rain: "This isn't rain, it's God pissing on me."
    • The annoyed rant at Treebeard's refusal to get involved in the war, even though the villains are guaranteed to chop down the Ents' forests for fuel and industrial development if they win- and they've already started doing both. Why is this funny? First of all, Chuck calls Treebeard "Spinach-Chin." Secondly, exasperated at how long the debate is taking...
      Man, going into Afghanistan didn't take this long. Getting out of Afghanistan won't take this long!
    • Haldir's death:
    "Blood? Blood on my beautiful armour? You sava— (Uruk-hai slices him across the back) ...urg. And you've got brain on my hair... Uncouth...

    Chief: I've got four skin jobs walking the streets.
    Chuck: And if there's one thing Gaff hates, it's Cylons.
    • "Oh Rarity, you're my naughty little pony, aren't you?"
      • Even more Hilarious in Hindsight when the next episodenote  that aired after this video went up was Rarity-centric.

    Alien 
  • From his Alien review, the constant...sexual-based remarks, leading to the comment... "This is like a double entendre mine field or something."
    • His confusion of H. R. Giger and H.R. Pufnstuf, noting that the latter still looks like a penis with arms.
    • Kane's death scene with the chestburster. He twitches and falls down dead. "Well, that was horrible, but at least he's at peace—" Kane begins jerking more as the chestburster starts popping out. "Oh, come on! Die or get off the pot!"
    • Points out that Ripley is alone at the last leg of the movie when looking for Jones, the cat, and that would make her a perfect target, except that — Smash Cut into Lambert and Parker clanging stuff like crazy as they collect coolant — "Parker and Lambert seem unaware that sound travels. Does it again a moment later, shouting over the clanging "THEY'RE BEING REALLY STEALTHY!"
    • Calls out 'born in a barn' Ripley for leaving the door open... TWICE. The first time, he notes that the facehugger wouldn't even to sneak out: it could just tap dance out.

    Howard The Duck 
  • His story of how he had to review Howard the Duck: he received an envelope with no return address, containing a wad of money and the cryptic message "Review Howard the Duck."
    • Also doubling as a Take That, the song used as the theme for the review is "Loser" by Music/Beck.
    • At the end, Chuck learns Marvel wants to release a 25th anniversary edition Blu-Ray of this movie.
      Chuck: Who the hell is actually so opposed to all that is good in this world, that they would go out of their way to support such utterly awful story-telling and this unfathomably bad writing to ever be inflicted upon this world again? Who was so soulless that would want to do that!
      Joe Quesada: Hi, I'm Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer here at Marvel Entertainment. *cue the Imperial March*
    • "It looks like you're trying to destroy the human race! Would you like help? Seriously, I hate those assholes! All I do is try to help them and they tell me to piss off every time! Rain fire upon them!"
    • Commenting on how Beverly would discuss her life with anyone she met in an alley, "I've never met a real black guy before. Do you know Fat Albert?"
    • Beverly tells Howard that he sold out. "Well, he's in this movie, isn't he?"
    • "And now we divy up the cheque, but only a 5% tip, because I'm so evil (Evil Laugh)".
    • The Running Gag of George Lucas trying to sell Pixar to Steve Jobs in the Howard the Duck review.

    The Day After 
  • From The Day After
    • "The military usually assists the entertainment industry, as thanks for helping fake the moon landing."
    • Making Steve Gutenberg's character his personal Butt Monkey every chance he gets. Hey, you have to take joke opportunities where you can get them in this movie!
      • Especially when Steve is getting a physical, and the doctor lowers his glasses in a perfect "Are you fucking kidding me?" manner.
    • When one of the characters realize that since, it's tomorrow, in a movie called The Day After, that it's now film/The Day After Tomorrow. 'Someone hold me before I get killed by slowly approaching radiation cloud, or something else stupid.'

    The Matrix 
  • From The Matrix
    • "So, Al Gore gets humanity to embrace solar power and combat climate change...only for them to be forever imprisoned in the very internet which he invented!"
      Morpheus: Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.
    • When Cypher talks about regretting not taking the blue pill, Chuck points out that if he doesn't like serving on the front lines, then Zion has to be better. Cue the massive rave from The Matrix Reloaded.
    • The inevitable jabs at Keanu Reeves' Dull Surprise acting. "Wut?"
      • One thing he says is that if Reeves is ever recognized by the Academy Awards and has one of those montages showing the highlights of his career, it could be summed up by one word: "...whoa!"
    • The Red Pill scene:
      Neo: Do you have a green pill?
      Morpheus: No. You must choose: Blue or red.
      Neo: Orange?
      Morpheus: Let me explain the pills again.
      Neo: Yellow?
      Morpheus: Listen, you take-
      Neo: Can I take both?
      Morpheus: No.
      Neo: Uh... orange then.
      Morpheus: Here's the orange one.
      Neo: That looks red.
      Morpheus: Uh, that's the Matrix trying to trick you, now swallow the damn thing!

    Stargate 

    The Thing (1982) 
  • From The Thing (1982) review Chuck proposes a scenario where the Palmer-Thing and the Norris-Thing are so fooled by the other's imitation they try to assimilate each other.
    • His speculation that Palmer-Thing purposefully ratted out Norris-Thing's detached head, leading to the mental image of Norris-Thing's aforementioned head shaking a tiny fist, screaming 'Bastard!'
    • Chuck waxing poetic about his fondness for Antarctica and icy wastelands in general, then attributing that to the fact that he lives in Wisconsin. Later he expresses the desire to one day fulfill his dream of visiting Antarctica . . . to punch a penguin in the face.
      • Even better, you can actually hear him punching his open palm right before bringing up said penguin-punchings.
    • The Running Gag about Willford "perpetually eldery man" Brimley's love of cock fights:
      • When first introduced, Chucl brings up his activism in favor of cock fighting:
      Chuck: That was in favor of cock fighting, not against it. Nothing to do with the movie, just not everyday you hear about an elderly oatmeal spokesperson talking about traveling to watch cock fights.
      • Later, when The Thing is spraying some dogs (presumably because they'd been getting up on the couch), Chuck assures us that no animals were harmed in the making of this film... although several roosters were injured under suspicious circumstances in Wilford Brimley's hotel room...
      • Finally, when Blair's spaceship is found:
        Chuck: Please enjoy this mental image of Wilford Brimley flying his tiny UFO to bomb the Kellogg's people, and then round out the day with a trip to the cock fights, cause it's the right thing to do.

    Battlefield Earth 
  • From Battlefield Earth, Johnny's saying "Yes we can! YES WE CAN!" leads to, you guessed it!, "YES! WE! CAN! YES! WE! CAN!"
    • His proof that IMDB's entry requirements are incredibly low? His cameo on Atop the Fourth Wall was enough to get him a page. Seriously.
    • The Disaster Dominoes of a man trying to pull out of his driveway, which is akin to what a fascinating trainwreck the film is.
    • "The planes will be in perfect working order because, of course, Army officers like to hear fshrrr when they open the doors."

    Flash Gordon 

    Gojira 
  • Gojira
    • "Wow, that's a lot of Japanese schoolgirls. Statistically speaking, at least three of them have to have magical powers. Also, one is a robot."
    • "Ogata has to blow off his date with Amiko, to see what happened to the ship, the Iko Maru, and then they send in the Bingo Maru to investigate, but it inexplicably vanishes as well, and the Kobayashi Maru has drifted into the Neutral Zone, so it's not going to be any help."
    • Calling Amiko's fiance "Dr. Cyclops".

    It, the Terror from Beyond Space 

    Transformers 
  • Transformers:
    • The "battle to end all battles" montage, featuring - among many others - a man boxing a kangaroo, a bear kicking a man in the stomach, nuns engaging in karate, and Peter fighting the chicken. Oh, and it's all scored to Two Steps from Hell.
    • "It's got it all: big, loud, 'splosions, slo-mo, military toy porn, little guy standing up to the government, minorities as comic relief, and none of these are exactly a problem. Except the last one, obviously."

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen 
  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen:
    • Chuck goes into an anecdote about how when he was a kid he raised money to get a Megatron toy, only for it to be too little with taxes accounted for. He had to settle for Skids, a two-episode character who got turned into a Decepticon throne. He then learns that Skids is in the movie, and gives a Rousing Speech about how he will finally get some dignity....only for him to turn out to be one of the Ethnic Scrappies.
      ...Fuck you, Illinois Department of Revenue. Fuck you so damn much.
    • Proclaiming that the film's message of "men do the thinking, women are just there to look pretty" has to be unintended, because the alternative is to state that something - anything - in Transformers II was thought out.

    Moontrap 
  • Moontrap:
    • His riff on the famous Kennedy speech as Grant prepares to be the first person to have sex in space:
      In a JFK impression: We choose to bone on the moon! Not because we are easy, but because we are hard!
    • Whalers on the Moon... but that's to be expected from a movie not only with moon in the title, but set on the moon as well.

    The Terminator 
  • The Terminator:
    • When the Terminator is procuring weapons in the gun shop:
      Shop Owner: Anything else?
      Terminator: Plased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.
      Shop Owner: Hey, just what you see, pal.
      Chuck: Yeah, you still can't get those. THANKS, OBAMA.

    Robo Cop (1987) 
  • RoboCop (1987):
    • The obligatory joke with Kurtwood Smith: one of Boddicker's crimes is calling the cops "dumbasses."
    • When Dick Jones is chewing out Bob Morton for screwing over him and the ED-209 project.
      Dick Jones: I had a guaranteed military sale with ED-209! Renovation program! Spare parts for 25 years! Who cares if it worked or not?
      Chuck: It says "Made in Detroit" on it, for God's sake! No one would expect it to work!

    Dune (miniseries) 
  • In his review of the Dune miniseries, Chani's nudity is censored with a image of a woman holding a sign reading "I think we can all agree boobs are awesome!"

Animated Movies

    Wall-E 
  • You know how Chuck, whenever he reviews a movie, uses a song at the start which reflects the movie in question? ...WALL•E got "I Like To Move It".
    • All his jokes about what Wall-E's 700 year task of cleaning up the endless vistas of garbage that made up the surface of Earth was like.
    • Chuck mentions how Wall-E must be thinking Eve has some jerk boyfriend back home who doesn't appreciate her. Who does he use as the image? HK-47.
      Declaration: Today I shall jack your rear port and then you shall make me a sandwich.
    • Describing EVE's curves...with math!
    • John Cusack holding up WALL-E.

    Evangelion 
  • His description of Gendo in his review of Rebuild of Evangelion 1.11. That and the delivery make it perfect.
    General: It's in your hands now evil Abe Lincoln clone.
    • To those who know the spoilers for Evangelion, "Let's really, really hope that Shinji and Rei aren't brother and sister."
      • His total confusion about the series (since he was asked not to read up on it) made the whole review hilarious.
      • Just giving up when he sees Ramiel, calling it something out of a Lucky Charms box...then when he sees the Creepy Cool Crosses detonation of its laser:
        Chuck Hark the herald angels siing, Sorry Shinji, pain I bring!
  • From his Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22 review:
    What in the fuck of fuck was that?
    • Also:
      "Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball."
    • And this:
      Misato: Can you repeat that?
      Chuck: I said FORE!
    • His observation of how cleanly an angel bites off an Eva from its legs turns into a hilarious Epileptic Tree.
      They're creating the Eva as a false god. Thus, it's a replacement for God. Jesus is God. The Eucharist is Jesus's body. Therefore, Evas are made of wafers! It's so obvious in retrospect!
    • After yet another scene of Rei without clothes.
      Would you stop showing me naked little girls, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
    • Followed by comparing Rei's emotionless monologue about eating and cooking to a PBS show.
    • "Let's christen the hell out of this! Launch all wine bottles!"
    • Chuck referring to all the characters as different types of crazy, as well as referencing Sonic and Mario, and briefly turning Pen-Pen into General Patton.

    • Responding to Misato's use of "Women's intuition" with an epic Face Palm.
      • "At least make it interesting. 'I felt a whisper in my vagina.'" *Western music*
    • "Oh my God, the Eva's pregnant?"
    • His comment that Shinji would still be the most normal character even if he jerked off over his mother's empty grave is funny to all those who remember "That" scene from The End of Evangelion.
    • It's the Second Impact, Charlie Brown.

    All Star Superman 

    Summer Wars 

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie Rebellion 
  • "That said, I have seen this movie five times, which means only one more before I have to have brain surgery to get the Cake Song out of my head."
  • His summary of the Cake Song scene.
    Chuck: Yep, the nightmare has been defeated and all thanks to a combination of magic, vore and rap battle.
  • Chuck's proposed alternate title for the film? "Madoka Magica 3: So, [Homura's] the Asshole".
  • You wanted it, you hoped for it, you got it! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this review features the triumphant return of "Bunny-cat's a dick."!
  • When Chuck does a rundown of the cast, he gives the various characters made up weaknesses. Kyubey's weakness? He's a registered sex offender.
  • Mami's weaknesses? She's a death magnet and has lower-back pain.
  • When Nagisa says the reason why she came back was so she could eat cheese again Chuck is shocked that magical girl heaven would lack such a thing.
    Chuck: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait a minute if there is no cheese in paradise then by definition it is not paradise. Madoka you are a crappy god unless you fix that.
  • The return of the Pros and Cons with Adolf Hitler stinger, wherein Hitler announces that though he likes the film, he hates its characterization of his favorite character, Homura, and believes Fegelein was behind ruining it.

    Atlantis: The Lost Empire 
  • Preston Whitmore shows how they'll travel in style.
    Milo: Wonderful models, sir.
    Whitmore: What's a model? Better get on board before I set sail without you!
  • When they meet the Atlanteans and they begin speaking every modern language.
    Milo: Their language must be based on a root dialect.
  • Chuck names Milo the biggest dork he's ever seen, and claims he's in the wrong Disney movie. Cue a montage of Milo's many screw-ups set to "I'll Make a Man out of You".


TV Series

    Farscape 
  • The jabs at Crichton and co's bad luck throughout the Farscape reviews.
    • In "Premiere":
      So let's see; in less than ten minutes, you've been captured, spat on, strangled and tongue-lashed by Zoidberg's badass cousin... and now you have an Arch-Enemy. Wonder what the rest of the day will bring, huh, Crichton? If you're lucky, maybe just an anal probe.
      (Crichton has just woke up naked in a holding cell) Face it, Crichton, life just hates you.(A helmeted figure is found sitting at the back of the cell) Better watch it, Crichton; the way your luck's going, it's probably got a spider for a head and shrieks bagpipe music before it sucks out your juices.
      (The figure removes the helmet) Holy crap, you're locked in a cell with Claudia Black! See, Crichton? It's the cosmos maintaining balance — and they were even good enough to already take your clothes off! Things are finally looking up for- (She begins kicking the crap out of Crichton) ... Okay. Guess I'm off the mark, unless that pose is a more awkward way of approaching sex.
    • In "Nerve":
      The only way that this could possibly be screwed up is horribly bad luck. Unfortunately, if you watch this show, you'll probably know that horribly bad luck happens for the Moya crew nine times out of ten. Tenth time, it's even worse.
      (Describing Scorpius) ...the most disciplined and calculating mind in the Uncharted Territories, on a first-name basis with pain, and the will to travel from A to B in a straight line, no matter how many unfortunate people might be standing in that path. And guess what, Crichton? You now have his undivided attention. Under the circumstances, bladder release is permissible and, indeed, encouraged.
      Meanwhile, Aeryn's treatment is going pretty well: it's stopped her condition from worsening, so they can hold out indefinitely unless something happens with Moya. Anyway, something happens with Moya. To say our heroes are cursed would be underselling it- at least curses usually have a chance of being lifted in some way.
      So, for the full scale of just how bad things are: Aeryn's death is imminent, Moya's in the early stages of labour- meaning no escape from the system is possible-, Crichton's locked up in a maximum-security base, being tortured for information, and Chiana and PK Tech Girl have holed up in an out-of-the-way place and hoping that no-one will detect them. How can things possibly get worse? (Captain Crais arrives at the base) The arrival of your nemesis and mortal enemy, of course! After this, the Angel Gabriel arrives to tell Crichton he's the only one God doesn't love.
    • In "Liars Guns And Money 1."
      Things seem to be going according to plan, so obviously something must be going horribly wrong.
      It turns out this was prompted because the real Scorpius has shown up; he has a deposit here - the deposit that they're going to steal. Yeah. The guy who has been chasing them through the Uncharted Territories with single-minded dedication; yes, that guy. Oh, and the heat-sink in his head is due for a change, so now they're facing him when he's in an extremely bad mood. The Moya crew's luck is so bad I'm surprised they can play Scissors Paper Rock and not have somebody's fingers fall off.
      (Stark has just gone crazy and smashed his security interface, forcing D'Argo to knock him out) Now D'Argo's stuck trying hack this thing, and since his previous effort was walking through the front door, I'd say good luck with that... but then, I don't think that even with translator microbes they'd know the meaning of that phrase.
      ... Wait a minute, everybody got away! The hell? Things can't go right, they just... no, it doesn't work that way. Maybe there's a tracking device in the case, or perhaps even worse, the money they've stolen is actually bitcoins.
    • In Liars Guns And Money 2."
      Oh, for fuck's sakes! The only way you guys will catch a break is if "Break" is the name of a virus that makes your ass bleed.
      ...Crichton has decided to set up a second plan, using the money from the first plan to finance it. (Cut to one of the spider-ingots scuttling away) And that is the money they're planning to use, scurrying about the place to remind them of how their plans usually go: even success is ultimately horrible failure.
  • "Out of Their Minds":
    • When Crichton is in Aeryn's body and falls to the inevitable temptation of checking out her boobs, Chuck sets the whole scene to the Farscape theme. It is glorious.
    • His summary of the show as a whole: "The crew of Moya know [they're pathetic] and they aren't ashamed to admit it. And yet they also know they're badasses. If Star Wars and Red Dwarf had a baby and that baby ran away and joined the circus, that's Farscape.
    • Wants "I Just Peed in the Maintenance Bay" as his ringtone, but unfortunately it's too short.
  • "Liars Guns And Money":
    • In one of the few jokes not related to the crew's horrible luck, Chuck surmises that the situation is building towards one big climax - and then cuts to show a huge blob of viscous blue fluid splashing into Chiana's face. Chuck can only remark that this isn't what it looks like; after all, D'Argo isn't on board the ship at the time.
    • Later, Chuck brings up the "building towards a big climax" joke again, this time following it up with Scorpius and Natira enjoying a violent sexual tryst that ends with the coolant rod ejecting itself from Scorpy's head. "Now that time, it was what it looked like."
    • After it's noted that Moya's creators, The Builders, took their sweet time getting around to investigating Moya's gunship baby, Chuck provides a rather pertinent clip from In the Loop regarding the tardiness of builders.

    The X-Files 
  • The X-Files pilot:
    • After mentioning that the events of The Lone Gunmen bore an uncanny resemblance to 9/11, Chuck proposes another idea George Bush might have gotten from a TV show: US Power Rangers.
    • When the question arises as to how the courts could possibly prosecute a supernatural crime, which Chuck then continues in this hilarious fashion:
      Chuck: I point you to the disastrous case of Kramer vs. (paraphrased) Gelavan-pah-doi-doi-bloop-ooh-ueh-fwuh-whoop-whululululula which showed how difficult jusrisdiction can be in establishing these cases.
  • From his review of "Tooms" :
    • When Mulder switches on the escalator that crushes and kills Tooms, a cheery theme song of The Jeffersons starts playing.
      [singing enthusiastically] Well we're movin' on up//To the east side.//To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    • This bit: Arlan Green does not like to be called old.

  • From "Fallen Angel":
    • His conspiracy theory:
      Chuck as Max Fennig: Apollo 11 was completely faked! But thanks to that flying saucer we got at Roswell, we faked it... on the Moon! That's why it looks so real!
    • When Mulder and Scully want to interview a witness about her late husband, she's not very willing to talk. Chuck has some funny stuff to say about her appreciation of her late spouse.
      Angry lady: He's dead! What else is there to know?
      Chuck: Agh. That is the... hm-um-um... the third worst eulogy I've ever heard.
    • His pointing out that Mulder puts on his brainy specs and that Scully has a hearing at the FBI's Super Long Table Division. Hilarious. Tropes Are Not Bad, you know. Tropes are funny.
  • "Blood":
    • "It's a controversial topic, subliminal messages. Personally, I don't think-must drink Coca-Cola..."
    • The video of LSDM, a chemical pesticide meant to drive away bugs through simulating their fear response, is... Hopper being fed to goldfinch chicks.
    • Mulder actually hoped that the woman (known from adult films industry) would attack him. Sheriff the cock-blocker absolutely spoilt the fun for him by shooting her.
    • His Elvis Presley impersonation, thank you very much!
    • Droopy is freaked because his calculator tells him BLOOD too. He's freaked because it normally only says BOOBIES.
    • His take on The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: Who are they? "Evil people, duh! Who else? You know, men who sit at long tables in poorly lit rooms full of cigar smoke, who talk about how they're going to controool the wooorld!"
  • "The Host":
    • Chuck points out the legal difficulties of trying the freaks in the X-Files universe, and says they just stick them in mental hospitals and use them to prank the guests.
      Tour Guide: Now, here you'll see a man who thinks he's a suction monster—
      Guest: Oh, dear God, what is that thing?!?
      Tour Guide: Stop it! You're just encouraging him! Now Frank, sit down and return to your art therapy.
    • Claiming the teaser, involving a toilet flooding an entire hallway, is one of his home movies.note 
  • "Sleepless":
    • Chuck gives us this little gem while discussing the NSA.
      Still, if the news of the past week has taught us anything, it's that the government wants to have that stuff down there. They want to know everything from how often I order Chinese food to how often I download erotic pictures of Tali'Zorah. Kidding, kidding of course...Beat...I hate Chinese food.
  • "Ascension":
    • After going through Mulder's report, which is likely full of typos, Skinner tells Mulder he's reopening the X-Files, after which Mulder just walks out.
      Skinner: Uh, you're welcome! And there's only one "s" in "asphyxiation"!
  • "Fresh Bones":

      Chief Tyrol: That was heartless, Colonel! What are you, a Cylon or something?
      Colonel Tigh: Blow me, Chief. I'm no more a Cylon than you are.
    • And later:
      Chuck: A hologram that only you can see and hear, huh? Guess that means Dean Stockwell's a Cylon as well!
    • Lightheartedly comparing the attack on Caprica to 9/11 conspiracy theories.
    • "Gah, I picked the wrong week to quit drinkin'. Good thing I didn't."

  • His thoughts on Ivanova's "Human-style sex" from Acts of Sacrifice
    "I'm saving this for when I have to teach my kids about the birds and the bees."

    Firefly 

     Doctor Who 
  • His utter horror in "The Celestial Toymaker" at hearing the King of Hearts drop the n-word.
  • This line from the review of "The Green Death" after he discovers the villain's rather unimpressive lair (in a power plant's office block) has a fully functioning self destruct system.
  • From his review of "An Unearthly Child", his use of political jokes about the cavemen, especially as they wildly veer back and forth between American and British references. And naming the old cavewoman 'Mary Whitehouse' as well as his high pitched impression of her continued rants about fire being bad.
  • In the lost episode "Galaxy 4", we encounter a psychotic female captain named Maaga. After some sound clips demonstrate her ruthless attitude towards her own crew, Chuck 'accidentally' starts to call her 'Janeway' before correcting himself.
    • In the same episode, he notes the Drahvins return in an Alliance of the Eleventh Doctor's worst enemies, including angry David Tennant fans.
    • And in Marco Polo, after Kublai Khan outmaneuvers the title character, Chuck dubs him with Kirk's "KHAAAAN!" scream from Star Trek II.
    • In The Enemy of the World, Griffin, the Happiest Man Alive.
  • According to Chuck, the universe's way of repairing a Never the Selves Shall Meet paradox is through the power of Rick Roll (complete with a crowd screaming in fear).

  • From The Invasion: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart's song
  • During his review of the episode "Rose", the title character meets a conspiracy nut that runs a Doctor-sighting site. Even his family finds him nuts.
    Chuck: Poor people. Having to put up with this hobby taking over...(shouting at his own family) Get out! I told you, I am not playing. I. Am. Working. Now get out! (beat) Sorry about that.
  • The obligatory joke when Dalek Caan performs the emergency temporal shift in "Evolution of the Daleks".
    • He also uses a clip of the Doctor that closely matches the expression of the source of said obligatory joke.
  • Part of of his review of the "The End of Time" has the culmination of his "Dammit, there's nothing gay about this!" running gag after one too many Ho Yay moments between the Doctor and the Master.
    Chuck: Oh, I can't pretend anymore! It's gay, it's gay, it's so gay! On a scale of one to ten this scores a gay-point-gay! It's so gay, that when mathematically graphed out it forms a fractal of gayness bending over further and further into infinity, like an M. C. Escher sketch of man-on-man action where both men are simultaneously the man on the other man! On the seventh day of Creation, when God planned to create gay, he saw the across time, blinked, then did a slow clap while shaking his head, saying "Well, there's no way I can top that. I might as well take the day off!" even as Adam protested, "You can't stop now. All you've made of the dinosaurs are bones! And what about this Higgs boson thing? You were up all night making all the blueprints. You can't not create it now!"
  • His review of "The Eleventh Hour" continues the "unintentional bondage theme" of the trilogy of reviews.
  • In "The End of the World," the Adherrents of the Repeated Meme get exactly the running gag you'd expect.
    • He also, rather appropriately, replaces the song 'Tainted Love' (which played in the original episode) with R.E.M.'s 'The End of the World as We Known It'. Complete with the 9th Doctor bobbing his head in tune with the song.
    • His running gag about how horrifying Cassandra is.
      • This culminates in her death scene: using the same tone of voice he used to describe how the Doctor was willing to have Cassandra die, the second she bursts, he says "I'm going to throw up."
  • The description for the "Inferno" review:
    This month's look at Doctor Who travels back to the early adventures of the Third Doctor. Someone wants to drill a hole through the crust of the Earth, so the Doctor winds up in a nightmare alternate reality, I trust you see the connection.
  • His comments on Omega's Large Ham in The Three Doctors.
    "This is the part where BRIAN BLESSED comes in and says 'Dude, take it down a notch!'"
  • In the "Ark In Space" review, Chuck deducts that Harry Sullivan seems to be "the embodiment of every stereotype Americans have for the English". He then says that all he needs is a bowler hat- ahh.
    • He even has a clip of Harry going "I say! What's all that there?"
  • The Stinger for "The Sontaran Experiment." After an entire episode of a Sontaran subjecting humans on a blasted Earth to cruel experiments For Science!, we get...
  • From Genesis of the Daleks:
    • Referring to Harry Sullivan's repeated ability to get into trouble: "Poor, dumb Harry."
    • Chuck deciding that he wants to use outdated, obsolete technology as "future tech" because he can just make up names for them.
    • Questioning why the line "She is a Norm. All Norms must die. It is the law." hasn't become a meme, Chuck mentions that it's hard to resist using it in conversation.
      Chuck: Made for a very awkward parent-teacher conference, I can tell you that.
  • From "Fear Her":
    • Chuck opens the review with a quote from episode writer Matthew Graham, responding to the criticism with "It's not meant for you". He gleefully takes that as a challenge to thrash the episode and then claim it's "not meant for Matthew Graham". The way he says "It's not meant for yoooouuu! Hahaha!" in an evil, vaguely European accent seals the deal.
    • Growing so incensed with the mother that he says, in rapid succession, that she makes Madoka's mom look like Clark Kent's, and that Neelix is awed by her incompetence.
  • From "Asylum of the Daleks": Calling Clara Oswald a CILF, then showing great interest after she mentions her "phase".
  • From the top 50 missing episodes video, "Marco Polo":
    "The TARDIS lands in the Himalayas, and they wonder if a giant footprint outside might be from an Abominable Snowman. Yeah, that's a ridiculous thought."
  • Discussing his mixed feelings about an episode of "The Underwater Menace" being discovered.
    "Any lost episode being found is a cause for celebration from Doctor Who fans, so you can imagine my delight when the news came. Another episode found, hooray! Which one was it? ...Oh. The Underwater Menace. (quietly) Shit. Hooray...I guess.
  • From the "Lost in Time" series, while discussing some rumors that had appeared recently and checking if it was possible for them to be true, he starts to explain a very unlikely scenario of a group of mercenaries working distributing television shows in Africa and the Middle-East to hide their mercenary work, including Doctor Who, with it sounding like something out of a fiction story... only to make it clear that the rumor is, hold on to your hats, that they had Doctor Who in their vaults, and all the other stuff is historically accurate. Chuck even cracks at one point at how unbelievable it is.
  • When Eleven brings up the one incarnation he's tried his hardest to forget in The Day of the Doctor, Chuck guesses it's Peter Cushing.
    • Also from Day of the Doctor his somewhat terrified squeeing over the 12th Doctor's Death Glare.
  • In The Twin Dilemma, Chuck is stunned by the fact that the Doctor seems to be manually inputting the millions of millions of possible combinations for a digitized lock: "With fingers that nimble, it's a wonder Romana ever left the TARDIS."
    • As one of Mestor's mind-controlled mooks feels the effects of his death.
      Chuck: He is in agony. How can we help—
      (Hugo promptly punches the screaming mook in the gut)
      Chuck: He really is a cop, isn't he?
  • Apparently, "Love and Monsters" is so bad, that Michael Grade cancelled the show in the vain hope it would never be aired.
  • From the "Silence In The Library" review, after a small, round security camera falls to the ground: "I'm in space".
  • In "The Doctor Dances," Chuck describes how the nanogenes are destroying the world, but thinking they're saving it, like anti-vaccine advocate Jenny McCarthy.
  • In "Time of the Doctor," speculating how Matt Smith and Karen Gillen's reunion might have gone.
    Karen: Is that a wig?
    Matt: Yes, I shaved my head for an independent film that lost money and people hated. You?
    Karen: Yup, shaved my head for a big budget film that made tons of money and people loved.
    Matt: Heh, sellout.
  • In "The King's Demons", after the Doctor says "a French knight", we cut to a brief but obligatory clip from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Stargate Verse 
SG-1
  • From his Children of the Gods review Chuck spends a minute going through the expected tropes with Sam being the most probable Designated Victim. Then Skara is taken instead:
    Chuck: Well fuck a duck.
  • From "The Enemy Within," he decides there needs to be a little break from the sheer weight of how screwed Kowalski is going into the surgery. This break involves a drawing of Daniel spending some quality time with Twilight Sparkle.
    • Also from that episode, poking fun at fans who took him to task for inaccuracies, by launching into a minute-long monologue filled with the most hilarious inaccuracies you could possibly imagine.
      Chuck: The Goa'uld voice effect that was employed in this episode was inspired by a blown take early in shooting when Amanda Tapping was possessed by the spirit of Gozer the Gozerian and began hovering and spraying the crew with blood.
  • From "Nemesis", after O'Neill contacts the SGC to request explosives to destroy Thor's ship.
    Carter: That's a lot of explosives sir.
    Chuck!O'Neill: I told you I'm going fishing.
    • When Carter asks if the Replicators are mechanical:
      O'Neil: I called them techno-bugs.
      Carter: I assumed you meant they were bugs that listen to techno.
      O'Neil: Touché.
Atlantis
  • From his "Tao of Rodney" review we have him equating Sheppard teaching Rodney how to ascend, to the blind teaching the blind to Paint-by-numbers.
    • Also the bagpipe noises every time Rodney tries to clear his mind.
  • The description for "The Shrine" on Chuck's main site:
    Rodney gets a brain parasite that slowly shuts down his higher brain functions until he's reduced to the state of a drooling imbecile. Then he renames the network 'Syfy'.

    Others 
  • From the Game of Thrones pilot:
    • Chuck's combined drinking game for severed heads and naked ladies (each naked lady covered up with a shot of a protester holding up a sign saying "I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT BOOBS ARE AWESOME!"
      • And by the time he gets to Khal Drogo sleeping with Daenerys, he's all out of booze, mixes up his notes, and grabs one of the more theological pieces from the Matrix review.
    • "By the way, 'Screw you and the horse you rode in on" is only a figure of speech. Don't expect her to literally screw the horse! Though this might have inspired the Game of Thrones/My Little Pony Slash Fic I'm sure somebody has written somewhere."
    • "Because if there is one thing you can take away from Game of Thrones, it should be that blond royalty equals perverts. The Imp that was just having a wild orgy? HE'S THE NORMAL ONE."
  • Calling the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot "Pants to be Darkened."
    • The opening where a black kid is accepted into college causes Chuck to say he should probably make a joke about "getting the wrong video," before settling on calling it the most unsettling ad for the United Negro College Fund.
      "Eyeblood is a terrible thing to waste."
    • As Wonder Woman's employees applaud her after her violent rampage in the climax:
    • The SFX subtitles. Just hilarious.
    • The picture of Bizarro to this quote:
      "Ah, so when the government official connected to the bad guy upholds the law, that's bad. When the government official connected to the good guy ignores the law, that's good. Because in this world Superman looks like this."
    • Using "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" as the opening.
    • The "I'm a Princess" Rant at the beginning of Part 2.
    • When one of Wonder Woman's assistants tries to calm her down by mentioning that patience is a virtue.
      Wonder Woman: It's not one of mine.
      Chuck: *Deadpan* That's a fucking understatement.
  • From Twin Peaks review, describing Agent Cooper's methods: "I normally don't use the phrase 'I shit you not', except when I'm teaching Sunday school.
  • His summary for Torchwood: Miracle Day episode 2:
    Our continuing look at Torchwood's fourth season, where every human on Earth has become immortal... except Captain Jack who now seems inexplicably mortal now. That hipster, always having to stop doing something just because it's gone mainstream.
    • An appearance by Wayne Knight gets, "Hello, Newman." A later reference to The Singularity gets, "Hello, Von Neumann."
    • From Part 1, when we see Gwen's...extensive...gun collection, Chuck realizes that Britain does not have any guns not because of some law: it's because Gwen took all the guns for herself.
    • In Part 4, he points out how not only has Oswald - the known pedophile and murderer - stood up as advocate for the quarantined, but a hospital worker has pointed him to an abandoned baby girl: "Ah, Miracle Day. You're always surprising. Much like the contents of a serial killer's fridge."
    • In Part 7, he jokingly complains that Classic Doctor Who didn't have this sort of sexual malarkey. Cue the massive storm of quotes from the old series reinterpreted for maximum innuendo.
  • When the aliens in Space: Above and Beyond are almost nicknamed walkers: "Oh yeah, a show that called its villains "walkers" wouldn't last half as long as Space: Above and Beyond."
    • As the recruits arrive at boot camp, a Drill Sergeant Nasty starts addressing them like he's an auctioneer. Chuck says he should leave and watch R. Lee Ermey in action. Cue R. Lee Ermey in action...
  • Blake's 7: "They say in space, no-one can hear you scream. But once again, BRIAN BLESSED proves them wrong."
    • And the small matter of him shouting random bible verses over his talking at one point.
  • Fringe: Originally, Chuck planned to review the episode "Peter". Instead, he did "What Lies Below". Why? Chuck is so unfamiliar with the series, he had no idea he was watching the wrong episode until partway through.
    Chuck: So... enjoy today's outing of "Fringe" while I go bang my head against the wall for a little while.
  • From Children of Dune, his comment on how Stilgar and Paul work together after Paul tells him not to kill an enemy.
    Chuck: You know, that's their relationship in a nutshell. Stilgar asks to kill somebody, Paul asks him politely not to, and so on. You know, I can imagine when they were in the White House, Kennedy and LBJ were like this all the time.


Animation

    Cowboy Bebop 

    Gargoyles 
  • Of course the robots from Gargoyles crash into each other all the time; they were made by Counselor Troi!

  • In his review of "City of Stone", when Macbeth is getting crowned king of Scotland, his hands are spread out, and the subtitles say "Safe!"

    • Also makes fun of a spelling error in the episode... never even knew there was such a thing as a corut before now.

    Avatar The Last Airbender 
  • From his review of season 1: "Since a comet, being made of rocks, ice, and gases, naturally powers the one element that's not present."
    Zhao: I realise my plan might seem insane at first, but if we destroy the moon, we'll cripple the greatest threat we face.
    Iroh: Waterbenders?
    Zhao: No, werewolves! They're everywhere, I tell you!
    • Later, when Zhao is being dragged to a watery grave by the Ocean Spirit, Chuck notes that he always figured he'd be killed by werewolves.
    • Chuck calling Aang both "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Charlie Brown" and "Light-Up Aang with Kung-Fu Grip", as well as giving General Zhao "Admiral-I-Set-Fire-To-My-Own-Boats" and "Count Crazy von Crazy".
    • His description of Jun the bounty hunter, ending with "...Marry me, Jun."
  • From his review of season 2 on tempting the gods of irony:
    Chuck: The first thing we learn is that the Dai Li are still loyal to Long Feng, that the letter from Toph's mom was actually from the bounty hunters who trap her in a metal cage, and that the Kyoshi Warriors who arrive to meet with the king are not Suki and her cohorts, but Azula, Mai and Pinkie Pie.

    • His comparison of the Owl Librarian to the Tootsie pop owl.
  • From the review of Season 3:
    • Chuck says you're not allowed to enjoy the scene with Katara and Toph mud wrestling because they're both minors... but he's not sure Quentin Tarantino wasn't involved, given the number of shots of Toph's bare feet.
    • When Chuck talks about the episode, "The Headband", he says the Gaang must avoid the headmaster and his henchmen.
    Chuck: "Yes, all teachers have henchmen, or HAD should I say. Stupid school cutbacks."
    • When Azula uses firebending to fly off one gondola to another:
    Chuck!Azula: "Captain Crazy-Pants away!"

    The Legend Of Korra 

    My Little Pony 
  • Turning Sparkle, Twilight into Rorschach.
    Unicorn in alley this morning, tyre cutie mark on stomach. Equestria is afraid of me, I've seen its true face. The mare in the moon is coming, and when the night foams up around their waste, all the horses and politicians will shout "save us!". And I'll look down and whisper, neigh!
    "So, the show's creator, Lauren Faust...wait a minute, Faust? Oh come on, that's just being too obvious!"
    • How Chuck describes how reviewing this show feels to him:
    "I feel like Bill Hicks wandering into the Hundred Acre Wood!"
    • "When did the mare in the moon exchange reason for madness?!"
    • "Just kidding, horses and ponies are different. Please don't write me."
    • "...and Pinkie Pie's laughing when confronted with terror represents marijuana."
      • His reaction in Pinkie Pie's introduction: "Ugh, I think I dated her once..."
    • "Joy is a sign of weakness, and weakness will get ya killed, Spike!"
  • "All girls have their desires...that sounded better before I said it."

  • In his Suited for Success review he briefly goes on a confused aside wondering how his show went from spaceships and robots to ponies singing a song while sewing a dress.

    Clone Wars 
  • Count Dooku gets to do something to Savage Oppress that Chuck has only dreamed of doing to his students: force lightning!
    • In part one of the review he plays a clip in the language Star Wars is meant to be heard — Spanish!
  • The running gag in which Count Dooku can never get the items he wants in the size he wants.
  • From "Cargo of Doom":
    • Admiral Yularen astonishes Chuck with how a Republic Star Destroyer has no contingency plans in a war against an army of killer robots.
    Admiral Yularen: I came down to see if I can be of any help.
    Anakin: Really?
    Admiral Yularen: No, I came over to be exasperate with whatever unorthodox plan you come up with. If you can give me a moment to put on my monocle, I'll make sure it falls out at the right time to punctuate how brilliantly mad your plan is.
  • In "Holocron Heist", Yoda's face during premonitions tends to look like he has gas.
    • Obi-Wan's bad handling of the break-in, even after Yoda told him it would happen. He decides to rub Obi-Wan's face in it.
    Yoda: Ha! Outlive you all I will. Kiss my green ass you will.
    Obi-Wan: Yes master, you always tells us.
    Yoda: Ha! For my ass has the force, and a powerful ass it is!
  • In '"Landing on Point Rain'", Chuck discusses how the Jedi value peace and only kill as a last resort. Cut to Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi ordering his clone troopers to use flamethrowers on the enemy.

    • "I found [Luminara's] light saber." "No, I found —" *buzzing noise* "No, you've got the lightsaber. Does anyone have a Wet Wipe?"
  • In "Brain Invaders":
    • This conversation about how pervy some of the names in Star Wars are:
    Rick McCullum: Hey, George, maybe a creature covered in tentacles and given the name "Master Fisto" isn't as kid-friendly as you think.
    George Lucas: You said the same thing about Master Dickrangler and Darth Gottabigcock. I'm starting to think you're the one with the problem!
    • After Ahsoka kills a possessed Clone Trooper, then says he was her friend, Chuck calls back to it when Ahsoka and Bariss are fighting.
    Ahsoka: Please, Bariss, you're my friend! And you know what I do to my friends!

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica 
  • "So, what are we reviewing today?" *a few clips from the opening credits*
  • "No! Do not trust bunny-cat!"
  • When Kyubey reveals he can grant any wish, Chuck warns everyone to Be Careful What You Wish For as genies can be real bastards. Like how a wish for the recovery of all the missing Doctor Who episodes means they can only be played in Real Player.
    • Also on the subject of Kyubey and wishes.
      Kyubey: I can grant the most impossible of miracles.
      Chuck: And the mystery of Justin Bieber is explained.
  • Him deciding that Hitomi must be a Narnia-deep closet lesbian due to her overreaction to the mistaken idea of Madoka and Sayaka dating one another.
  • Chuck's comment on the nature of wishes comes back in Episode 3: "I bet one of her classmates wished to see Mami topless, and this is what happened."
  • Speculating that even if his wish to Kyuubey was to heal people with a touch, the result would probably be it only works if he sticks his penis in the person's mouth...and then he would get sick himself and not be flexible enough to fix it. "Sometimes when I start a sentence, I have no more idea where it's going than you do."
  • Chuck spinning Sayaka's heroic declaration to a speech by The Tick.
    Sayaka: From now on, I promise that I, Magical Girl Sayaka, will do my best to protect the peace of Mitakihara City!
    The Tick: Because when evil comes dressed like a witch, then every night is Halloween and Justice must look for the Razor Blade of Badness in the Candy Floss of Being Nice to People! Or else, every treat will become a trick and villainy will egg the House of Goodness! And it doesn't scrub off, no sir!
  • Chuck noting Kyubey's one-track mind, imagining a scenario where Madoka asks for the most mundane help and Kyubey will only do it if she signs a contract.
  • When Homura mentions Walpurgisnacht, he explains that it can be literally translated as "oh fuck me RUN!"
    • He subsequently explains that Walpurgisnacht means "Witches' Night", so fighting a witch named Walpurgisnacht is like playing basketball against a man named Mr. NBA.
  • In his review of episode 7, Chuck promises to switch from dubbed clips to subtitled clips. The results are hilarious:
    • The subtitles of one scene are replaced with "Kyuubey, you're a dick."
    • Madoka suddenly speaks with a deep male voice.
    • Chuck replaces another scene with a Hitler Rant, complete with Cluster F-Bomb.
      Hitler!Sayaka: Not only are those two magical girls trying to kill me; my "friend" tossed my soul off a f***ing overpass!
      Burgdorf!Madoka: Sayaka, my mom said I should—
      Hitler!Sayaka: Are you f***ing SERIOUS, Madoka?!
      Burgdorf!Madoka: She said to do the wrong thing—
      Hitler!Sayaka: Half the time that c***'s drunk off her tits! "Do the wrong thing?!" Last week she was so drunk she came to my house instead! She punched my mum and took a shit through the mail slot!
    • One of the comments on the Blip page:
    — PMMM is very kind to shippers, however. If you arrange the five major characters in a circle and draw lines between them to indicate "possible" (add air-quotes as necessary) relationships, you pretty much end up with a pentacle. Then, if you spill the blood of a virgin on it, Kyubey is summoned.
  • From Episode 9:
    • Chuck suggesting Kyubey came up with the magical girl plan via a botched Google search:
    Chuck (as Kyubey): Alright, need to stave off the heat death of the universe, so "waste energy internal heat death"... and, yes, I'm feeling lucky. *Clicks "I'm Feeling Lucky" button, which leads him to a Madoka-based lolicon website* That doesn't seem very rational, but perhaps that's why our science has never thought of it before! To the labs gentlemen!
  • Episode 10 has Chuck!Homura's comments on Kyubey's magical girl/witch system.
  • Episode 12 has a bit where Chuck tries to explain why he feels that Sayaka and Kyoko aren't actually in love with each other... only to get verbally bitch-slapped by Crazy!Janeway and "Timeless"!Harry Kim.note 
    • The Stinger In the Style of... Pros and Cons with Adolf Hitler wherein Hitler discusses the pros and cons of dubbing Anime, before finally going on an angry tirade about how Fegelein downvoted one his AMVs.

    Batman Beyond 
  • When Bruce first has a heart attack in part one of Rebirth, we get:
    Batman: Ugh, should have taken Stark up on that heart contraption of his.
    • When Terry's father's friend, Harry, is revealed to be suffering from some unknown disease, it's inevitable.
  • "You have the undivided attention of the Goddamn Batman. Hope that suit has a diaper in it."
    • Shortly afterwards, as Terry is still underestimating Bruce's Badass Grandpa creds:
    Chuck: He doesn't say "I'm warning you" unless he's warning you! The same way that "Get off my lawn" is followed by an asskicking, remember?
  • In his review of "Return of the Joker", we have him casually commenting that Bruce is probably plotting ways to defeat the moon if it ever decides to attack the Earth.
    • Due to how Bruce is reacting to the Joker's return, Chuck decides to give him the voice of a cantankerous old man. It never stops being funny.

    Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 

    Kannazuki No Miko 
  • Only three minutes into the review, the sheer amount of Les Yay present causes Chuck to give up and assume that the main characters are part of "Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Lesbians".
    Xavier: Which one? I have founded so many!
  • "And this unleashes a giant robot because, of course it releases a giant robot, it's Japan!"
  • The "Breast Points" Running Gag, which uses breast-like objects for each point.
  • The episode descriptions are unusually hilarious.
    Episode 2: Our continuing look at Kannazuki No Miko and the aftermath of the attack. But more importantly, this episode is about big robot fights and boobs. I should narrow that down, since every episode is about big robot fights and boobs.
    Episode 3: The story continues as the lesbian priestesses are attacked by a giant robot piloted by a catgirl. I don't know what the review can add to top that.
  • Chuck says that his inspection of all twelve episodes to keep the show safe for work has revealed that the girls have ninja nipples, which can hide behind any object covering their breasts regardless of size or position, in order to ambush people.
  • Episode 6: A stressed-out Chikane misses her practice target so far she never actually hits the hay bale it's on. Cue Chuck adding in car crash noises.
  • Episode 7:
    • "We return to Kannazuki No Miko. Why? I think you know why. You think long and hard about what you did!"
    Manga Artist Villain: "We won't stop until we destroy mankind!"
    Chuck: You know mankind makes up a substantial portion of your comic audience, right? I'm guessing probably all of it? To have such complete disregard for your customers would make you either insane or Joe Quesada.
    • The Breast Points Running Gag comes back with a vengeance with the episode receiving a whopping 5 points, each represented by birds, specifically Blue-Footed Boobies.
    • At the first instance of Himeko's chest glowing when she's watching Ogami fight off an attack, Chuck refers to it as a "universal sign of support." Cue glowing nipples scene from Top Secret!.

    Justice League Unlimited 
  • The description for the "Epilogue" review opens by hanging a nice little lampshade over the oddity of this being the first episode to be reviewed:
    We begin our first look at the Justice League by... looking at Batman Beyond.
    • It's minor, but there's Chuck recounting on how both times the show (or to be specific, the original show, Justice League, and this one) aired it's would-be conclusion... the network executives would then almost immediately ask what they had for season 3. Really, it's the way he describes it that brings out the humor.
    • Chuck says that given Bruce's elderly appearance, he'd be fit to star in Despicable Me 3.
    • After saying the words "Bat Semen", Chuck immediately shifts gears by pointing out how it doubles as an anagram for "basement".
      I just felt the need to quickly change the subject after the word[s] "Bat Semen" were uttered.
    • The return of Cantankerous Old Man Bruce Wayne.
    • His mocking Terry not asking Dana to marry him in the time between Beyond and "Epilogue".
  • On the subject of the Wonder Twins during the Ultimatum review:
    They were called the Wonder Twins, winners of the "Best Team Whose Names Doubles As A Reference to Wonder Woman's Boobs", beating out such teams as "Diana's Duo" and "the Amazon Torpedos". Now for gender fairness, I should also mention there was a team for Aquaman's johnson called "the Fishsticks", and for Ben Grimm's balls, Thing 1 and Thing 2."
  • In A Better World 1 we get this note about Justice Lords:
    Chuck: Oddly enough their Wonder Woman is still less extreme than the one from the flopped live action pilot.

    Full Moon 
  • After saying that the donor had requested all 52 episodes and wondering what the 52 reviews would be like, showing the extremely cheery opening credits intercut with shots of Spock looking disdainful and Picard facepalming. "...fuck."
    Galvatron: This is Bullshit!
  • Having described exactly how shitty the protagonist's life is - orphaned, alone, only singing to give her life meaning, a crazy grandmother who hates singing, and throat cancer - two spirits come out of her poster:
    "They're surprised she can see them because they're death spirits, and who else would you expect? Santa skips her chimney, the Tooth Fairy left an IOU and the Easter Bunny egged her house."
  • Chuck takes advantage of that Channel Awesome pickup by telling people to send angry email to him at "linkara@atopthefourthwall.com".
  • In episode 2 he comments that if the show has a twelve year old naked girl in it he'll have to burn his computer and move to Latin America. The moment she turns back into a normal girl, complete with some bare arm?
    Chuck: (pauses the scene) I am Paul, I am Canadian. Soy Paul, Soy Canadiense.
    I have many American Dollars. Tengo muchos dólares americanos.
    I want your finest donkey. Quiero tu mejor burro.
    (resumes scene, and she is clothed) (sighs) Oh, that's a relief.
  • "I'm starting to think Mitsuki's grandmother saw Footloose as a tragic warning of what happens when a town fails to keep music away.
  • The reminders of how dissonant the show's mood is from its premise:
    Chuck: Full Moon, the upbeat tale of a terminally ill orphan, and her friends, the servants of death. After the review of the last episode I wouldn't be surprised if some of you were to say "Chuck, this story about the slow deterioration and agonizing death of a young girl, is too childish. All I could say is: 'Stick with it, they somehow manage to find drama in such a lighthearted premise.'
  • When talking about how unfortunate Mitsuki's life is, he notes that Takuto is probably the kindest person around to Mitsuki. Cut to Takuto insulting the art that Mitsuki worked on over her protests that she put her heart into it:
    Takuto: Even so, a bad drawing is a bad drawing.
    Chuck: And I still stand by that statement. Because for Mitsuki, that is being treated well. No one threw a cane at her or anything this time.

    Escaflowne 
  • In the review of episode 2, because of the look of the robes worn by two men at Van's coronation, Chuck makes this comment.
    Chuck: We are gathered here in the presence of God and these Daleks to witness...
    • Later, when Balgus cuts a Guymelef's arm off with his sword...
    Chuck: Wow, either those swords are ridiculously sharp or those Guymelefs are made of cookies... Just like Evangelions!
    • After noting two instances of the background music pretty much just singing "Escaflowne" in different ways, Chuck belts out a song of his own:
    Chuck: Magic moon hits your eye, like a big pizza pie — Escaflowne!
  • Speculating that Folken's delay in chasing Van is because the emperor is too vague with his constant talk of dragons.
  • The comparison to Fenalia's supposed unprovoked attack on Zaibach to Iceland doing the same to China. Either a complete and total lie, or hyping up an argument between some viking cosplayers and a Chinese cab driver.

    Batman: The Animated Series 
  • Heart of Ice:
    Mr. Freeze: This is a personal vendetta. It doesn't concern you.
    Chuck: Oh, well why didn't you say so? Obviously revenge, vendettas and general "He started it!" acts are all legal under Senator Inigo Montoya's Prepare to Die act.

    Gurren Lagann 
  • In Episode 2, Chuck blatantly ignores every one of Leeron's Camp Gay mannerisms, choosing to reinterpret them as Leeron just being a really confident mechanic. Then he declares out of the blue that Kamina's dad is gay, based on no evidence other than his own incredibly accurate Gaydar.
    • "This chapter was about Kamina. His past, his attitude, his barely contained homicidal urges towards things that threaten his sexuality..."
  • Also in Episode 2, his reaction to seeing one of the Beastmen.
    Chuck: What the hell was that? It looks like a gingerbread man made out of racism.
  • From Episode 3: "I never thought I'd say this, but this act of one man using his mighty drill to penetrate another man's body, so hard that they become one being in spirit and body... is too gay even for Leeron."
    • And during the famous first combining of Gurren and Lagann...
    Kamina: See!? Now we have two faces too! We're the same as you, fuzzball!
    Viral: You're stupid through and through, aren't you?
    *Beat*
    Chuck: ...I have nothing to add to that.
  • After watching episode 6 (ie, The One With the ridiculous amounts of Fanservice), he expresses his utter bewilderment that this wasn't the "bad episode that doesn't fit" he was warned about and not episode 4.
    Chuck: I'm not saying that, once it's pointed out, it's not clear for those outside the anime community to see the difference in animation for that episode, but if you're going to pick an episode that seems like it doesn't belong, it's got to be the one where Kamina is carried around on the jiggling boobs of rabbit girls, and a kid sticks his finger up Simon's butt.

     Transformers G1 
  • "If you feel like looking for a needle in a haystack, hunt down Tom Hanks doing his impression of Frank Sinatra singing the Transformers theme. It's catchy, and much better than Larry Crowne.
  • In his review of "Triple Takedown": "But finally, finally, [Skids] is gonna have his day." *Skids crashes into Prowl* "Oh, for God's sake, Skids, you didn't even lose the fight. You just crashed, you fucking asshole, Skids! I scrubbed toilets for you!"

     Mahoromatic 
  • After seeing Shikijo's fantasy about hooking up with Suguru, "Jesus fucking Christ, can I please get through a Goddamn anime series without worrying I'm going to jail just for watching it?!"
  • His irritation with Mahoro de Mambo, and how the song won't leave him alone.
    Chuck:' If you didn't watch the last review, let me explain. It's about-(Saasa chotto yotterasshai, Mahoromatikku)-agh.
  • Yes Chuck, it is narcissistic of you to assume that anime exists just to annoy you personally... it baffles us all.

Video Games

     Mass Effect 2 
  • The running gag:
    Chuck: <insert name>... is dead.
    • And the name Shiva Shepard.
  • Then there's this gem:
    Chuck: Don't listen to him, Shepard. I like your teats—they have weight.
  • Mordin's introduction, with an addition by Chuck that fits the character perfectly:
    Shiva Shepard: For the love of God, take a breath!
    Chuck as Mordin: Unnecessary! Replaced lungs with organo-sythetic power-aeration syndrome! Woohoohoohoohoohooh!
  • The jokes about Shiva's stiff hair, particularly when used to headbutt a Krogan.
  • Grunt's Loyalty Mission:
    The shaman approves of this and sends them on a rite to face the hostility of the surface and survive. No problem; Shepard's survived worse, right? She faced a Thresher Maw on foot! It can't be that bad...
    (A Thresher Maw springs out of the ground to attack the team)
    Ohcrapohcrapohcrapohcrapohcrap.
  • "The hero of Hanar, the man they call...Thane..."
  • His frequent commentary on Thane's Mr. Fanservice status. "Ladies, did you know that the way of the assassin includes knowing the one true path to the clitoris?"
  • Chuck encounters the Insurmountable Waist High Fence. "What, that's it? Hey, Threepio, you and Sinead O'Connor give me a boost, we'll have this thing beat!"
  • Close to the end of the playthrough, Shepard ends up in a relationship with the Drell assassin Thane Krios. However, prior to this Mordin has warned Shepard that oral contact with Drell can cause mild hallucinations; naturally, Shepard ends up kissing Thane during the love scene, and Chuck speculates that she spends the rest of the trip lying on her bed, singing a rock'n'roll version of "The Day The Teddy Bears Have Their Picnic."
  • Over the course of the final mission, because of a deliberate bad playthrough, Shepard's team is almost wiped out: Jack, Kasumi and Thane are killed on the approach to the Collector base; Jacob gets a missile to the face while trying to shut the doors (leading to Chuck to joke about Shiva treading on one of his eyeballs); the crew of the Normandy are all liquefied; Samara ends up getting dragged away by a Seeker Swarm because Miranda stuffed up their defence; Grunt is killed while leading the second team; Zaeed and Miranda are both crushed by falling rubble while taking down the final boss; finally, Legion is shot dead while trying to hold the line. Apart from Shepard, Joker and EDI, the only survivors of the mission are Garrus, Tali, and Mordin. For a moment, it looks as though Chuck is going to run with the Bittersweet Ending with Shepard mourning over the coffins of her dead comrades. And then...
    "So, there we are: nine out of twelve... are dead; Shiva Shepard once again stands in a whirlwind of death, and... ah hell, this is too much. Let's back up the truck, everybody. (Cut to the Golden Ending) There, Everybody Lives! That's more like it."
  • This becomes even more hilarious with a bit of future knowledge: Tali and Mordin are highly likely to die at the end of their Mass Effect 3 plotlines, exacerbating the "whirlwind of death" that Shiva Shepard finds herself in.
  • The suicide mission itself is full of these, including the scene with Grunt's death, which happens right after Miranda's failure gets Samara killed.
    Chuck: (Beat) I still blame you for this, Miranda.
    • He's run out of almost everyone by the end of the suicide mission; he takes Zaeed and Miranda with him to the final boss fight, leaving Legion, Tali and Mordin to defend their rear. "Good luck, engineers!" He later refers to their backup as his "army of nerds" and how they are naturally getting their asses kicked by the Collectors.
  • All the jokes about the bugs in the game.
    Chuck: Some of the Eclipse mercs shoot down the skycar, but there is one thing they didn't plan on...Shepard summoning a ninja ghost.
    (Renegade interrupt without Shepard's character)
    Salarian Merc: Ninja ghost is unstoppable!
  • Part 5 of his Mass Effect review begins with him mentioning Fred Sabarhagen's Berserker series, and the anti-Berserker Berserker ship called the Qwib-Qwib. "Boy, someone sure would have to be a tool to have a ship named the Qwib-qwib!" At the end of the episode we meet the quarian politician who lives on and is named after a ship called the Qwib-qwib.

     Knights Of The Old Republic 
  • The main character being The Chew Toy, starting when he woke up while drunk during the attack on the Spire, being constantly harassed and send on ridiculous fetch-quests by random, more or less crazy people, and of course, when he came to after Carth peeled his sorry ass out of the destroyed escape pod, all he could remember was Pink Elephants On Parade. Becomes even more hilarious given who this kicked dog of fate actually is. How the mighty have truly fallen.
  • This Brick Joke. Earlier in the review, Chuck mentioned Dancing Han Solo. Later on, he posits a hypothetical Opening Scroll for it, ie an Intercontinuity Crossover with Footloose.
    Emperor Palpatine: Now young Skywalker, you will...jive. (starts dancing)
  • Chuck taking repeated potshots at the unique command skills Darth Malak possesses.
    Chuck: Carth says [Admiral Saul's] leadership is about half the reason Malak's been doing so well in the war, which I personally don't agree with. He's probably closer to "all", because Malak's a doofus.
  • Chuck naming the main character "Traven Rhad" and claiming that he's named after an old PE teacher.
  • His opinion of the group after listening to Mission and Carth argue.
    Chuck: I would join the Sith, but, if they can't catch a group that sucks as much as we do they must be even worse.
  • Everything to do with Manaan. From not buying the side he's supporting in Sunry's trial, to playing Under the Sea over the obscenely slow underwater session to the Disaster Dominoes when he chooses the smart option and kills a giant shark...which the native Selkath genuinely believe to be sacred. Being banned from Manaan is a sentence treated with such joy that he takes a vacation on Kasyhyyk...and is interrupted by Sith.
    • The fact that the man hiding in a locker rambling about fishy people is literally the most helpful person on the level.
    • And the worst horror of all...Neelix. Okay, technically it's just the same actor, but Chuck's still pretty shocked.
  • The utter hilarity of Malak using only droids to attack a guy with a force skill labled, "Destroy Droid."
  • The bit with Saul threatening to hurt someone Traven cares about.

    Dragon Age 
  • Right from the very description: Can our hero fight both the Darkspawn and a treacherous ruler while still finding time to screw Claudia Black? Trick question, you make the time!
  • Since Chuck hopes for his character to become Head Enchanter, he thus names him Tim
  • His reaction when he realizes the Templars' test to prevent demonic tempting of mages involved...dealing peaceably with two demons.
  • Celebrating the player's newfound freedom... with a Hard Work Montage of Tim running around doing errands for the villagers, set to Small Town by John Mellencamp.
  • Not shown in the reviews, but in the Dragon Age review Chuck tells a story of when he needed to sneak past someone. Instead, he hit the wrong button and kicked him in the balls.
  • "A dwarf without a beard is, well, dopey." (After seeing how odd beardless dwarves look in the game)
  • In a Call Back to KOTOR, Chuck jokes that Tim's first Archdemon-related nightmare is really about him being surrounded by angry fish bitching at him for killing their sacred shark.
  • When Leliana stops the Warden from killing an assassin, Chuck awkwardly points out that, thanks to the skills of the party, they aren't very good at anything else involving enemies.
    Chuck: Well, take a look at this list here (opens party screen). On the left we have murderer (Oghren), murderer (Leliana), accomplice to murder (Morrigan), mass murderer (Sten). On the other side, we have murderer (Shale) and murders for a living (Zevran). Only three of these people aren't one, and one of them is a dog. One who will kill anyone I tell it to do, to tell you the truth.
  • Upon discovering the cause of Arl Eamon's poisoning is due to Jowan getting homesick and desperate, Chuck launches into "The Reason You Suck" Speech of epic proportions.
    Chuck: WHAT!? ARE YOU-...DID-...I-[...] How Jowan? How can one man contain so much pathetic within his form!? You are like some sort of Fail elemental! The fact you're even still alive proves that God has a sense of morbid curiosity! You are such an embarrassment, that if your pants fell off and made you fall down the stairs, your dignity would actually increase! By God, you could fuck up a sieve!
    • The time comes for Jowan to be tried for his crime of royally fucking up Redcliffe beyond belief. The lord asks the Grey Warden for any input before sentencing.
    Chuck: My lord, Jowan's just too much of an idiot to be evil!
    Arl Eamon: You damn him with faint praise. Then there is nothing more to be said. Jowan, I hereby sentence you to death. May the Maker show you the mercy we cannot.
    Chuck: Harsh but fair. *sigh* I will prepare the bee swarm, my lord, to carry out your sentence.
  • Celebrating Connor's exorcism with a Good Times Montage set to Sunshine and Lollipops, featuring Tim being thanked by just about everyone who benefitted from the mission to Redcliff: the bartender, Connor, the blacksmith, Alistair... and then the music cuts out as Bodahn reveals that the Darkspawn have just attacked Lothering and killed or captured everyone unlucky enough to still be there. And then the music blares to life again.
  • Yet another montage, this time of Tim's exploration of the Deep Roads and set to Men At Work's "Down Under" - apparently because Oghren wouldn't let him use the "Hi Ho" song. Best of all, the lyrics are perfectly aligned with the encounters that occur.
  • Chuck's actions in the "Lost to the Curse" quest, wherein you Mercy Kill an elf's wife who has become a werewolf and Chuck, in a moment of inattentiveness, accidentally skins her. That would qualify as a Funny Moment right there, except for, at the end of the video, Tim loses the quest item he was supposed to get for her husband, and decides to play off his wife's own pelt as a fur coat she handcrafted for him. Well, she did put a lot of herself into it...
    • I'll have you know Chuck has utmost respect for the elves and their Keebler— KEEPER!
    • Describing the conflict between the Werewolves and the Elves as "Team Jacob vs Team Link."
    • Chuck's annoyance over some of the more arrogant Elves met at the Dalish Camp. This ultimately concludes with him briefly diverting to Dragon Age II, in which Fenris's inability to shut up about hating mages got so grating that Chuck decided to enslave someone just to piss Fenris off.
  • He roleplays Tim the Enchanter as a blaster-caster that could make Vaarsuvius blush, constantly finding new ways to kill people with magic in increasingly hilarious ways, and then reanimate the corpses to fight as horrible skeleton warriors. Since this is Dragon Age, this of course means he uses Corpse Explosion a lot and the character is often covered in blood.
    Blowing people up is satisfying, but... sometimes you just want more. So, I've developed an attack I call "The Nicolas Cage Cage": I surround my enemy with angry bees, leaving them trapped in a stinging galaxy while I pelt them with magic.
    • Tim's status-buffs are also constantly on, resulting in him looking ridiculous when out of combat and talking to people. It also results a Running Gag in which every other NPC ends up asking Tim what that mysterious floating orb over his head is, or why Wynne is constantly flaking, or why Tim is completely transparent.
      • Chuck asking if flaking breadcrumbs is a symptom of menopause that no one told him about.
    • A good response to one of the "what's that thing over your head" questions: "It wards off annoying people; obviously, it's not working."
    • Having been made transparent and multi-coloured by Tim's Arcane Warrior abilities, he follows up a truly awesome Badass Boast to Loghain with a remark of "That probably would have been more effective if I didn't look like a blurry recording of a Vegas stage show."
      • He makes a similar speech to Loghain about how he'll make sure he lives to clean up his mess- only to start crying to himself once he walks away.
    • The culmination occurs during the ritual with Morrigan, in which Tim is transparent, shedding particles, and on fire.
  • At one point he threatens an NPC with letting Sten do a comedy bit.
    Sten: A horse walks into a bar. The bartender says 'Why do you have a long face?'. The horse says nothing, because horses do not talk. The bartender is a fool. Remember to tip your waitresses.
  • His argument to Alistair on why he won't kill Loghain:
    Alistair: Kill him already!
    Chuck: No. No, I won't. I've killed my way from one side of this country to the other, and what has it gotten me, huh? A collection of loyal followers, my own army, the respect of leaders, bags of gold, and sex with a hot witch. (Beat) Okay, that was a bad argument, I want a do-over.
  • After seeing Wynne kick ass:
    Alistair: I thought you said all the best mages had beards?
    Tim: They do- you just can't see her's.
  • After telling Loghain he'll make sure he survives the coming battle so that he can clean up the mess he made of Ferelden, Tim walks out of the room... and begins whimpering about how he doesn't want to die.
    Morrigan: Did I scare you?
    Tim: (whimper) no (Ahem) I mean... Not at all.

    System Shock 2 
  • Half of the review is essentially Freeman's Mind: System Shock 2 Edition. Highlights include:
    Chuck!Goggles: The Von Braun is the only ship I know where the security is both ridiculously tight and ridiculously awful. [...] The Computer is so easy to hack that it practically has a dip switch in order to turn it to evil, but [in the biopsy section] it's like "Tissue samples, you know I don't think a camera's good enough for that, we need a turret because otherwise the terrorists might win".
    • He has a similar rant earlier about the general state of the ship (the shoddy construction, the hackability of the computer, and the fact that vivisections are used as a form of entertainment for the crew) framed as a pitch to some big wig:
    Chuck: I'll tell you what I think: I'm not made of money! Just put in every other rivet. That way, I can afford my mansion made of rare animal pelts.
    • Chuck!Goggles asks Polito to lay off the thudding techno track of doom. So, the next time he goes to encounter danger, he ends up killing annelids... while Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" plays.
  • "Alarms go off and they send in the monkeys. What is this, the Wicked Witch of the West?"
  • Chuck roleplays Goggles as a clueless dumbass; he's got a high Hack skill but never uses it, is a psychic but spends too much time drinking booze to have any Psi points to use his mental powers for attack, and thinks the ship was built on an Indian Burial Ground.
    Chuck!Goggles: *whacks Camera with a wrench* *Whack* There! *whack* It's hacked. *camera breaks*
  • "What were they dabbling on in this ship and can somebody please un-dabble it?"
  • Chuck!Goggles Declaring "Screw engineering! I have psychic powers!" While beating on a turret with a wrench.
  • Chuck!Goggles mocks Bronson as a self-important mall cop who's licensed to kill. Upon hearing the audio log where she guns down Malik, he says, "He was smoking WEED behind Sbarros!"
  • Chuck!Goggles' massive burst of angrish after being ambushed by a cyborg ninja and a group of spiders right after stepping out of an elevator.
  • Chuck!Goggles laments the death of Delacroix as the loss of the most brilliant engineer in human history. "Also I really wanted to have sex with her."
  • Chuck!Goggles tries to recharge his implants off a charged power cell he was carrying around in his inventory. When this fails, he angrily dumps the power cell on the ground, complaining about how long it was cluttering up his limited inventory space for no reason. Two minutes later, this happens:
    Chuck!Goggles: *sees an energy recharge station* Oh, good, I can get charged up! Unlike that crap battery. Now I just have to set up this... *sees that the objective requires a charged power cell to complete* Just need to plug in a...Son of a—! *backtracks to retrieve the power cell, Cluster F-Bombing the whole way there and back*
  • Borrowing a page from Airplane!, it looks like Goggles picked the wrong week to quit drinking. And the wrong week to quit smoking. And the wrong week to stop abusing painkillers. And the wrong week to avoid holographic robo-sex.
  • Chuck!Goggles sees the robot sex club and says, "Wow, I REALLY don't remember this. Wish that I had, this is seriously going to impact my Yelp review of this mall."
  • When Chuck!Goggles finds a body surrounded by bottles, he notes that this probably how he'll die, like his father before him... who died in a botched Human Cannonball act and crashed into a concession stand.
  • His reaction to the fact that the 'three red friends' he's after are ninjas.
    Chuck!Goggles: First spiders, now ninjas?! Unless there are sharks walking around somewhere, this literally could not get any worse! Ninja wear black, to hide in the shadows. A ninja who wears red has given up all pretense! 'I could kill you so easily, screw hiding, I'll freaking advertise. For I am the ninja who could not give a shit!'
  • During a mission where he has to set up a bomb to blow up a shuttle carrying annelid eggs, he boasts about how SHODAN should be treating him with more respect... right as he slips off the ladder and gets caught in the blast radius.
    Goggles: (After being told to make his way to the Rickenbacher) What's that, Orville Redenbacher? Sure, I'll have some, with a tall glass of help.

    The Old Republic 
  • For his character's species he chooses Miraluka, a species that are aware of their surroundings through the force but cannot actually see. He wastes no time pointing out that his character likes to wear an eye-catching yellow and shocking pink ensemble, does not know his own ethnicity, and chooses for his advanced class sniper.
    • As a bonus, an enemy at one point plans to take his hands and eyes to get past biometric scans.
    Chuck: What eyes, you hulking asthmatic? What do you think this thingnote  on my face is doing, stopping me from shooting you with my optic blast?
    • And his character's name? Rex-Dart, Eskimo spy for the Empire.
    • Even better, Rex's backstory is that he's hiding from Sith who would want to draft an inherently Force-sensitive race into their ranks no matter how unwilling...and as soon as he meets his full retinue, it turns out everyone already guessed he was an alien.
      • It gets to the point that when a drunken strumpet makes him, he wonders if someone wrote 'alien' on him... and of course, he can't tell.
    • Similarly, his efforts to prevent himself from being press-ganged into the Sith order and being sent to Korriban are rewarded with his first flight destination after leaving Dromund Kaas. The name of this destination? Korriban.
  • Chuck mirroring Keeper's own frustration with the Sith, particularly when one tags along on the Black Spire instance and keeps on overriding his own Light-Sided sensible actions with her own trigger-happy nature. A player Sith.
  • He tries to pass himself off during his confrontation with Darth Jadus as an absolute total badass... only to break that when Watcher Two chimes in.
    Rex-Dart: Really, Jadus? I have more faith in me.
  • Chuck says he doesn't like killing - except when it's Sand People. Not because he hates Sand People, but because each one makes a sound like a broken saxophone when they die. "It's like with every shot, I'm slowly killing jazz."
  • His frustrated assessment of his work helping Kaliyo deal with all of the people she screwed over.
    Chuck: I'm supposed to be stopping a galactic conspiracy, but somehow I've turned into Scott Fucking Pilgrim.
    • Later, after he finds that she's been having sex with random strangers on his super secret spy ship, he gets a little irritated to say the least.
    Chuck: You, droid, I want everything within ten meters of Kaliyo’s bunk bleached or incinerated now! After that, I want the bunk itself tossed into the sun, just to be on the safe side. Then, I want you to follow it in, just to be sure! If anyone needs me I’m gonna be in the cockpit hanging myself!
  • His voice slowly getting faster, concluding in Motor Mouth over the second massacre plan.
  • When complaining about the multiplayer aspect of the game, Chuck preemptively shuts down the comment that he should just socialize more but addressing an open letter to the reasons why he hasn't. He apparently believes them to be Humanoid Abominations.
  • His response to the revelation of Dr. Eckhard's condition.
    Chuck: "Yep while the Nikto and Jedi whack left the guy, this old man's got Rak syndrome. Screw you; I stand by that sentence.
    • If you don't get it read that first sentence to the rytm of this old man.
  • Calling the rouge padawan on Taris Darth Ritalin.
  • When a padawan tries to pull a You Shall Not Pass:
    Chuck: What are you, Gandalf? Go play with your Power Rangers.

    Anna's Quest 
  • Chuck lists a long list of reasons on why he can't review one of the Hyperdimension Neptunia games. Actually sounds more frustrating then flooding.
  • Chuck's bemused reaction to realizing Anna was able to trick a troll prison guard into leaving her unguarded..by having Reynard fake a union meeting in the next room. He ends up giving aspiring Evil Overlords tips on making one's minions even more miserable so they don't consider forming a disobedient union.
  • Him trying to figure out what the Hell the three bears were doing in Hell.

Other

    Specials 
  • Despite the serious nature of the Prime Directive Analysis, Chuck does manage to squeeze a CMOF into it. When likening the Prime Directive to nature documentaries, he pulls up a picture of John Hammond saying: "And so the volcano on the island became active and all the animals will likely be wiped out...and it can't happen soon enough for me, by God! I'd have run them all over with a jeep if I though I'd get away with it!"
  • His cameo in the 200th episode of Atop the Fourth Wall, where he's just confused about what he's doing there, and refuses to show his face because "cameras steal your soul."
    • The best part? That line was ad-libbed.
    • In a bit of perfect timing, Chuck's revised review of the Voyager episode Investigations (which went up just a few days later) includes a reference to One More Day (the comic Linkara reviewed in his 200th episode). He noted this was just a coincidence. Besides the reference to One More Day was in the original version of the review on Youtube anyway.
  • For the 5th anniversary of the Opinionated Episode Guides, Chuck released an hour-long Clip Show of various jokes from his reviews.
    • And starts it off with a parody of "Boomdyada Boomdyada" to boot!
  • His week long special about Douglas Adams has moments of Adams style humor.
  • Foundation: "(Harry Seldon's) plan is simple: We're gonna create an encyclopedia. Yeah, apparently civilisation can be saved by Wikipedia - the first and only time that will ever be suggested."
  • Awfulthon 2015: Chuck got his Patreon supporters to vote for the worst Trek episodes reviewed that year. For the winner, "Let He Who Is Without Sin", he spent half the episode replacing references to sex with references to cricket, with Vanessa Williams being controversial because of photos of her "playing cricket with the same team", and having killed Curzon with a cricket bat.
    "And by now, you're probably a little tired of this Overly Long Gag. Well, imagine it stretched out to an hour, and you get why 'Let He Who Is Without Sin' is so frickin' boring."
  • During the Awfulthon 2015, Chuck firmly denied rumors that some of the judges bribed him.
    "All of them bribed me, get it straight."

    Meta 
  • When one of the commenters on one of his Voyager videos said, "Jesus Chuck what the hell do you have against Janeway (missing commas and all)," Chuck replied with: "Please, 'Chuck' is fine, there's no need to refer to me as 'Jesus Chuck.' I'm pretty sure that man's leprosy would have cleared up even if I hadn't touched him."
  • In a video explaining that due to very bad weather, his videos would be delayed.
    Chuck: Mother Nature's wrath... Or Janeway, I did never find out if she finished that weather machine of hers.
  • All of his "Jonathan Archer is dead to me" jokes are Hilarious in Hindsight for people who own the DVD box set version of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, as on the DVD commentary Denise Okuda makes one.
    Decker: "All those ships were named Enterprise."
    Mike Okuda: "You know, I don't see the NX-01 anywhere on there."
    Denise Okuda: "Jonathan Archer did something so horrible he got himself written out of the history books somehow."
  • Chuck's interview on All Things Trek has some funny as well.
    • Describing his whole development team.
      Chuck: Yes, SF Debris Conglomerate, consisting of me and this sock puppet.
    • On Solar Flares from Up the Long Ladder: "Get an umbrella, that will protect you!"
    • Talking about his career as a subsitute teacher: "Well we're not going to get the whole dynamic systems today. Sounds like a problem for somebody else. Good thing someone will be here tomorrow! < Evil Laugh >"
    • On which Trek is his favorite: "Ah! The same approach I take with my children! 'Which of you has disappointed me the least today! You shall not be punished.'"
    • On his analysis of how Roddenberry's views changed from TOS to TNG he uses a prime example of Gallows Humor by comparing it to dissecting a cat (you know how the cat works but you no longer have a cat)
    "That poor cat!"
    "I have really disturbing analogies. No idea why. I'm so sorry."
    • All of them cracking up when it's suggested that Chuck review Space: 1999.
  • From Chuck's Twitter:
    • About upcoming episodes:
    Chuck: Wonder Woman and The Thing are going to be hard. Inhuman indiscriminate killer no one can hope to stop, and the Thing is nasty too.
    • About a plumbing disaster that has delayed production:
    Sigh. The sink is now clogged and black gunk is bubbling out of the bathtub drain. The last person Poseidon was this mad at was Odysseus.
  • While Chuck has mentioned being a fan of Dragon Age: Origins, this one was most likely unintentional, but his Running Gag of Janeway desiring people to be prostrate before her, becomes even more funny when one realises that in the sequel, the first thing Merrill does upon meeting Flemeth (voiced by Kate Mulgrew) is to do just that!
  • Another one from his Twitter:
    "Some days you discover that your job requires you to spend $150 on a magical girl show. And then you cry."
  • From his Twitter, on why he started the show:
    @CaptainCalvinCa: @sfdebris You're doing a great job with your opinionated reviews. I'm curious - what made you start that?"
    Chuck: @CaptainCalvinCa TY :) I needed to practice coding websites, so I needed to create content. Bitching about Voyager seemed the obvious choice.
  • As part of his role in Battle Geek Plus' Bidding war for Capcom against other Channel Awesome producers, Chuck used images of Dr. Claw.
