Funny: The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
  • From the movie:
    • "Hello, toast! I greatly admire your ship!"
    • Tough Jerk Jock Nick screaming like a little girl and running away and Cindy's "My hero?"
    • This dialogue:
    Nick: That is the Stupidest Thing I've Ever Heard!
    Sheen: No, this is the stupidest thing you've ever heard: blah-blah-blah-blah-gooble-dooble!
    • The "Self-Destruct sequence"
    Ooblar: *Takes a small metal square from Goddard*
    Jimmy: *over speaker phone* Warning! Warning! You have initiated Self Destruct Sequence Alpha!
    Ooblar: Oh, that's my bad! Back in you go! *reaches to put the plate back*
    Jimmy: Self Destruct Sequence is now engaged.
    Ooblar: Nononononono! I put it back! Do you understand me!?
    Jimmy: This unit will yield a 50-megaton nuclear blast in exactly 10 seconds.
    Jimmy: Please clear a 30 square mile area, thank you and have a nice day. *a yellow smiley face on a spring pops out and opens up to reveal a timer* 10...9...8...
    • The ritual that the Yolkians make the parents do to summon Poultra is... the chicken dance.
      Nick: They're making our parents dance so lame.
      Carl: (resigned) No, my dad really dances like that.
    • "I'm peeing! In the shower!"
      • "I'm still doing it! Go go go!"
    • "We were having a contest... to see who could eat the most cotton candy... and I won!"
  • FOLDING AND HANGING! I'M FOOOOLDING AND HANGING!
    Hugh: Hey there, Jib-Jab, I was just in the neighborhood, and I wanted to have a little chitchat with you about this, uh, "pants" business. (dramatic music swells) Y'know, son, believe it or not, there was a time when I myself used to leave my pants on the floor. And then one day, I...I picked them up! And, well, the rest is history, son! Speaking of history, just think: what if our Founding Fathers had left their pants on the floor? What if Attila the Hun hadn't picked up his pants? What about Luke Skywalker? I tell ya, the Force was with that guy's pants! (beat) I'm glad I've cleared this up for you, son. (sniffs) Goodbye. (beat) Whoopsy-daisy, barn door's open! (zips up his pants)
  • Practically everything Hugh says counts as a CMOF.
    Hugh: A chimney sweeper! Do you sing and dance?
    Hugh: Having your planet blown up could ruin your whole week!
  • "I Dream of Jimmy", full stop.
    Jimmy: Carl, can't you see this is a dream? There's llamas in the classroom, Libby came rowing into class with a plastic leg...
    Jimmy: Wow, he's dreaming of being a genius, like me!
    Cindy: Like you? Please, you can't even spell your own name!
    Jimmy: (He looks at the paper on his desk which has his name misspelled several ways such as "Jimy" and "Jimme"... And the last attempt is "Bob.")
    Sheen: "I am the ULTRA-PRINCIPAL!"
  • When they're all at each other's throats in "Battle of the Bands", except Carl, who's just yelling "DRUM SOLOOOO" over and over again in a bad Liverpudlian accent.
  • The opening of "Lady Sings the News" has Jimmy switching the images of the local news anchor's and weather-girl's heads with those of Sheen and Carl, respectively. Carl discovers what happens on the screen when he spins around in Jimmy's room...
    Carl-head-on-weathergirl: Come on, Anchorman! Spin your head with me!
  • "Retroville 9"
    • After Jimmy admits he's been using advanced bats and mitts he gives his team a Rousing Speech saying they can win without them, and the match still ends with them having gotten 0 runs.
    • At the end they go see a Godzilla expy, and when Sheen sees that it's laughably small it breathes fire in his face. He then asks Jimmy if he knows the Japanese word for "ambulance".
  • The entirety of "Grumpy Young Men", though some highlights include:
    • Sheen staring at the standee for an M-rated game in an attempt to spite the cashier after he throws the trio out, after which the cashier throws an ice cream cone at him.
    • Goddard's reaction to seeing Old!Jimmy, which is to let out a stock horror movie scream.
    • Old!Sheen complaining about how kids today wear their pants.
    • Old!Jimmy being carried across the street against his will.
      • Even Cindy and Libby were impressed with Hugh's determination to get Old!Jimmy across the street.

    • Carl eating Jimmy's bowl of experimental truth serum and promptly spouting out deranged secrets, including liking Jimmy's mom and not really believing in Ultra Lord.
      Sheen: (covering his ears) LALALALA LALALA!
  • "And the gold under our lawn to use in case Dad decides to give all our money to telemarketers! ...Again."
  • The Nanobot duo are very amusing. Some of their highlights in their episodes...
    Nanobot 01: (knocks on Jimmy's door to the lab) Telegram.
    Carl: Like I'm gonna fall for that.
    Nanobot 02: Llamagram.
    Carl: Llamagram?! Oh boy! (opens the door... gets deleted)
    • "And we want our cookie back!" (pulls out a plunger)
    • After the Nanobots first get into the saucer transport:
    Nanobot 01: (Sees Nanobot 02 glaring at him) What?
    Nanobot 02: Your chair is bigger than mine.
    • The above becomes a brick joke later on once the Nanobots enter their saucer in another episode:
    Nanobot 02: I call captain's chair!
    Nanobot 01: Over my dead relays! (Beats up 02, throws him into other chair)
  • In "Sorry, Wrong Era," Carl begins dancing calypso and Jimmy stares in shock before briefly giving an Aside Glance to the viewers.

  • "He sent us back TWO HUNDRED MILLION YEARS!"
    Sheen: How can I watch my eyes dissolve?
    Carl: No Sheen, you're supposed to watch your eyes before they're dissolved.
    Sheen: "Watch my eyes?" It doesn't make any sense.
    Jimmy: Guys, please!
    • People complaining to Judy about Hugh using the time gizmo on them.
    Sam: He disgusted all my customers, yeah!
    Libby: He gave us brain freeze!
    Woman: He made me experience the miracle of birth again and again and again... (sobs)
    Sam: Yeah, birth.
  • Macbeth in Space, all of it.
  • Hugh's imitation of Gollum from "Lights, Camera, Danger!".
    • In the same episode, when Sheen sends his script in.
    Sheen: I just taped pieces of the phone book together. I call it Attack of the People Named Frank Johnson!

    Attila: Destroy! Attack! Kill! Maim! Conquer! Pinch!

    Attila: (Stops breaking things) Plain or with nuts?

  • This troper thinks that Sheen coming back to the electrical shock-inducing doorknob in "Krunch Time" was hilarious.
  • Party At Neutron's is full of moments like this.
    Jimmy: Right this way, ladies.
    Cindy: Ah-ah-ah, can it, Neutron. We're only here to make caddy observations and rude remarks.
    Libby: And there was nothing good on TV.
    Sheen: We could play Spin The Bottle...*spins bottle with a seductive look at Libby*
    Libby: Yeaaah, *stops bottle* or we could play, "Spin Sheen and Him With A Bottle!"
    Jimmy: Well, Mom didn't say anything about Sheen inviting anyone over, so okay! Sheen, uh, I guess it'd be OK if you invited just a few...
    Sheen: Could you keep it down, Jimmy? (Into two phones) Yeah, you heard me! Party at Neutron's! Call everyone you ever met in your entire life and tell them to get over here right now!
    • "Um, honey, how long have we had a dinosaur in the closet?"
  • In Ultra Sheen, Jimmy tells Sheen and Carl to head over to his lab with their favorite video games. Sheen is there the very next second.
    Jimmy: Hey, how'd you get here so quick?
    Sheen: I already had a copy of, "Ultra Lord vs. Robo-Fiend: Mega Battle'' in my pocket!
    Jimmy: And you carry that around all the time...?

    Principal: "NO ONE GO NEAR JIMMY'S HEAD!! It's precious cargo."
  • "Jimmy For President" has Mrs. Fowl listing off the transgressions of the candidates as bribery, blackmail & MURDER!, causing all the students in the auditorium chairs to scream in horror. Mrs. Fowl corrects herself, stating that the last one wasn't murder, but piloting a blimp on school property without a permit.
  • Sheen's attempt to read hieroglyphics. It starts off fairly convincing, shocking the others, then quickly dissolves into hilarious nonsense.
  • Jimmy is now half hamster, half human: "It's a good thing my human half is completely in control! It's going to take every ounce of brainpower I have to-Are those nuts I smell?!"
  • Lots from the Egyptian episode:
    • This exchange before they watch the video on Egypt:
    Ms. Fowl: Butch, would you hit the lights, please?
    Butch: Sure thing, teach! (Pulls out a slingshot, shoots at the light, destroying it)
    Ms. Fowl: (Pinching the bridge of her nose, understandably annoyed) Thank you.

  • Hugh pretending to be Gollum in "Lights, Camera, Danger!"
