Helga: Oh my poor lost sweetheart, how I love you... and yet I hate you! And yet I love you! And yet I hate you! And yet I love you!Critic: *imitating Gollum* We loves Arnold, we loves him so much, NO, WE HATES ARNOLD, WE HATES HIM SO MUCH, LOVE, HATE, LOVE, HATE *starts babbling*.

Nostalgia Critic: Hello, Iím the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you donít have to. Hey, kids! Itís Saturday night!Kids: Hooray!NC: School is out!Kids: Hooray!NC: The night is young!Kids: Hooray!NC: All your friends are free!Kids: Hooray!NC: And you canít drive!Kids: Fuck.
- The Critic's introduction to Roundhouse:
- Roundhouse, when the actor starts dancing at the end of a sketch.
Critic: Dancing! Hi! Why are we dancing? I mean, what the hell? It's like they ran out of punch lines, so they just decided to dance. "Oh, no! I have no segue! What should I do?" "Dance, you fool! Dance!"
- Right after praising All That for African-Americans in their cast, he instantly changes his mind and calls them racist because In Living Color! had a higher percentage of black people.
- NC explaining the premise of Roundhouse, where there's improv and you have to imagine certain situations.
Nostalgia Critic: Now imagine that I am changing the channel. Oh, wait. I donít. (holds up remote) Thatís why we have concrete matter. (deep, demonic voice) USE IT!!
- And when he makes fun of the Midnight Society from Are You Afraid of the Dark?, including this part:
Gary: But one thing draws us together.NC: Smoking weed around the fireplace.Gary: The dark!NC: And smoking weed around the fireplace.
- During the review of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, after the new recruit tells their scary story, the various members give thumbs up... except for Simon Cowell.
- The bad acting on the kid actor ("But you can't see air. Or can you. Waaaait a second, there's a trick here. You can't put something in the barrel to make it lighter. You have to take something out. If you take something out of the barrel itself, it'll be lighter...?"). The Critic says it's pretty bad, and observes that his acting reminds him of someone he knows: Footage of the child actor dissolves into Chester A. Bum rambling.
- "SCREAMING IN EVERY OTHER SENTENCE IS NOT FUNNY! IT IS LOUD AND ANNOYING! AND ANYONE WHO DOES IT SHOULD BE SHOT..." (bang) "Unshot..." (bang) "And given a bag of money." (N.C. receives a bag of money to his surprise) "How about some lounge music?" (lounge music plays)
- His EPIC freakout upon learning that he has to review Good Burger next.
- The "Grape Nose Boy" scene from the Good Burger review, which ends with the Critic describing the actually non-existent Eleventh Level Of Hell.
And lo and behold, an obnoxious douchebag with unconvincing dreads will put grapes in his nose and constantly shout 'Bloopity bloopity bloopity bloopity', and it will be called the Eleventh Level of Hell. Dante then wet himself and cried in fear.
- The Overly Long Gag preceding it, ending with the Critic tearfully shouting at Ed to "SHUT UP!! SHUT UP!! SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP!!"
- The end:
Ed: Welcome to the Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?
Nostalgia Critic: *feigning amusement* Yes, yes you can. *a Balrog's face appears over his own* DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEE!!!!!!
- He goes on:
Critic: THIS IS CRAP! IT'S GODAWFUL! GOOD BURGER? GOOD GOD, WHAT A LOAD OF SHIT! IT'S LIKE IF SHIT COULD SHIT AND THAT SHIT COULD SHIT AND THAT SHIT COULD SHIT AND THAT SHIT COULD RAISE MONEY TO PUT TOGETHER A TEAM OF FILMMAKERS TO PRODUCE A STEAMING FLAMING PILE OF SHIT!
- What makes this even funnier is that his voice begins to strain as he runs out of breath.
- He goes on:
- The Critic's reaction to Abe Vigoda. "*Record Needle Scratch, the Critic waves his hand in a rewinding motion* Abe Vigoda, what are you doing?" Later: "Will someone please give Abe some direction? He's the funniest thing in this movie, and I don't even think he's supposed to be in it!"
- The last part of the review:
Ed: Why don't you want a partnership? Is it cause I'm black?Nostalgia Critic: AAGH! A FUNNY JOKE!
- His reaction to Ed's dream in the beginning. He finally has to yell for it to stop, because he needs a minute.
- The clips of Hitler with subtitles like "And don't forget the fries with that! God HELP you if you forget the fries with that!"
- When the protagonists see that mondo burger is adding illegal substances to their food:
Nostalgia Critic:MONDO BURGER IS PEOPLE!!!!
- After the film attempts to do an emotional scene, we get this:
Dexter: I give up. I'm going home.Critic as Dexter: And I ain't acting, I'm really going home. Fuck this movie.
- The running gag with the tumbleweed once a bad joke is told. By the third time, the tumbleweed says "You know what? Fuck it.", and proceeds to walk off-screen in protest.
Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest
- The Nostalgia Critic singing Sweet Transvestite while the Nostalgia Chick randomly plays the accordion in the background during the review of Ferngully is just hilarious.
Chick: Now you're pregnant.
- The bit after the Chick invokes a Big Lipped Alligator Moment and plays a riff to herald it.
- Whenever there's a BIG-LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT!
- The glowing holding-hands G-Rated Sex.
Critic: AHH! AHHHH! AHHHH! [tries to pull away]
Chick: [smiles evilly and holds on to him]
The elf king: Somehow, I thought [humans would] be bigger!Crysta: Well, we had sort of an accident, and he kinda... shrunk.Nostalgia Critic: I have pills for that. Not that I... need them or anything...Nostalgia Chick: (Eyerolls)
- Especially funny if you're a Trekkie.
- Don't you ever try to bring logic into this movie again! This is FERN GULLY, BITCH!
- (after a scene with two very small-brained birds asking for a password:) "Welcome to hell?" (awkward smile) "Don't eat shrooms?" (awkward smile)
- Their expression when the two birds yell "Halt! Who goes there?" is priceless.
- "Isn't that right Jasmin - I mean Crysta. Maybe we should consult The Genie - I mean Batty. After all, that is why I'm Sultan - I mean king!...Which animated movie am I in again?"
- The following exchange:
Chick: Listening to Robin Williams rap is like listening to Eminem, sung by M&Ms, while taking part in S&M.
- "Oh! He raps!"
Critic: Annoying, bad for you, and incredibly painful.
- "Hooray! I'm back to normal! Except...(looks down pants) NOOOO!
- Plus the Chick looking down too and being disturbed.
- The montage of clips of the Chick and Critic fighting. There's a fucking pillow fight in it!
- Every time they snap back to the looks on the Critic and Chick's faces.
- "TOO SUBTLE!"
- The Critic and Chick imitating fighting cats after the cock contest.
- "Look out, it's the plot!"
A Kid in King Arthur's Court
- During The Nostalgia Critic's review of A Kid in King Arthur's Court, upon seeing someone who, despite pretending to have no ill intentions, is quite obviously going to be the villain introduced, the Critic says,"By the way, did I mention that I'm the villain in this movie? No, because I don't have to!"
- "What kind of sexual eroticism can we possibly get out of those two?"
- "'Ha! Did you see what I just did there? I made fun of your acting! Ha ha ha! Because I'm the one who's going to have a career after this movie! I was the villain in True Lies! When will you ever be in a James Cameron movie? Ah, ha ha ha!' Oh, God, I'm funny." Yeah, actually, you are.
- "My only hope is that I can knock out all memory of this movie by hitting myself on the head repeatedly with the complete works of Shakespeare."
- "I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't Blue's Clues."

Calvin: Princess.Critic As Katie: Help me!Calvin: I haven't had this much fun in my whole life.Critic As Katie: Call the guards!Calvin: I know you're worried about your father.Critic As Katie: I'm worried about me you moron!Calvin: I guess that's all.Critic As Katie: Don't leave me!Calvin: Oh yeah.Critic As Katie: Help!Calvin: You're a great kisser.Critic As Katie: Oh my god what an idiot!
- Critic mentioning that Calvin plays baseball so bad he deserves to be mocked by everyone. Even stating that the land hates him (referring to the earthquake that kicks off the plot).
- Critic sarcastically calling Daniel Craig's character's Non Sequitur Thud a great James Bond moment.
The Good Son
- The review for The Good Son was a piece of genius, as the Critic did it silently.
- The psychiatrist scene.
Psychiatrist: Please Henry, tell me everything.Henry: Everything?Critic: *loud truck horn*
- "I love how a friggin' CHILD PSYCHIATRIST can't tell that a kid talking like a damn robot is lying!"
- When Culkin offers Wood a cigarette, and a PSA showing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles talking to a class is shown. When Wood takes the cigarette the turtles respond with shock.
- When the camera hangs on to the scene of Culkin offering Wood his own Michael Myers mask, the Critic holds up a sign saying, "CUT???".
- The NC's silent confusion towards the mother's angry reaction of slapping Mark, then immediately hugging him.
- NC's jaw dropping upon Henry's "Don't fuck with me."
*cue card*: The Home Alone kid just said 'Don't fuck with me'. I can actually feel my childhood dying. It's going, going... *A crunching sound is heard. Critic flips over the cue card* Dead. *A heart with wings and a halo with the word "childhood" written on it floats away, and Critic waves goodbye to it as a short tune is heard*
- Every scene where the Critic is confused/angry at how blatantly evil Culkin's character is, yet none of the movie's characters notice.
- "Hi, Mark." "HOLY HELL!!!"
Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog/Sonic Sat AM
- "This is torture! This is madness!!"
- The clip shown from A Clockwork Orange, making it so that Alex is being subjected to watching the show, especially since it sounds eerily like Alex is screaming "STOP IT, STOP IT, PLEASE I BEG YOU !"
- Regarding Robotnik in SatAM:
"But surely you can't take something as silly-looking as Robotnik and have him be the least bit intimida— [SatAM Robotnik pops up] JESUS!"Its like he's orgasming with every word!"
- It leads to this:
Robotnik: It warms the cockles of my heart.
Critic: Okay, the less I know about your cockles, the better.
- It leads to this:
- The moment Nostalgia Critic's mind finally snaps under the madness of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog:
Sonic: "Even you can learn something from a sloth!"
NC: "...FUCK THIS SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!" *proceeds to shoot the entire cast of AoStH*
- It already snaps earlier in the review: "What!? What!? Buh... Pumpkin!? What!? Pumpkin?! What!? I don't care what drug-induced land you're in, you cannot blow in your hand and come up with a pumpkin. How did you even come to that conclusion?! I mean what's next, he's gonna blow in his hand a beautiful woman's gonna come out?? (Scratch pulls a drawstring on his hand and a woman comes out) (low pitch) WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!"
- "HOW can you blow into your hand and make a WOMAN? WHY would you even be chasing hedgehogs if you can blow into your hand and make a WOMAN?! IT DOES NOT! ADD! UP!"
- In fact, it seems as though his mind has already snapped when we first see him with a Heroic BSOD look on his face:
"I consider myself a man of decent logic. A man who has a fairly firm grasp on the perceptions of reality. A man who's down to earth and lives in the realms of the real world. (beat) UNTIL TODAY!! When that reality was challenged by a blue-tinted hedgehog and his flying fox with two tails! This is the gateway to madness that the world of children's programming has chosen to call The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog."
- Regarding SatAM: Honest to god effort, unlike (argh!) That. OTHER. SHOW!!!
- Even before that, when the opening of SatAM plays for the first time, he is shown crying Tears of Joy.
- His attempt at retiring "Of Course!" gag with Bison constantly interrupting him ending with his panel flattening the Critic.
- The Critic talking about how Scratch and Grounder's voices sound like ones you use when you make fun of somebody.
Critic: So I'm sitting there just talking to my friends, when suddenly the teacher walks in and is like (imitating Scratch) "What are you doing here? Aren't you supposed to be in class?"Scratch: He made me persistent! He made you too dumb to quit!Critic: And then my idiot friend is like (imitating Grounder) "Duhh, I don't know, I thought it started later!"Grounder: Yeah! The chase is over!
- Regarding Princess Sally Acorn: "You're not really a Princess, you just took the title because it was cute! Take some responsibility. You're a queen now. QUEEN IT UP, BITCH!"
- The closing scene in which the Critic compares the two shows to two class projects:
Critic: It [Sonic SatAM] literally took nothing and turned it into something. Unlike... THAT OTHER FUCKING SHOW! They took nothing and turned it into even less than nothing! In fact, you know what it's like? It's like two students who turn in two separate projects for a class.Critic (as student): Hey there, teach, here's my project. I tried to add as much character and psychological development as possible given the guidelines, but I think I came up with a pro-enviromental show that will actually make kids enjoy the forest without, you know, shoving it in their faces.Critic (as teacher): Well, this is very well put together. Strong story, good characters, working beyond the material given to you... A+! Now, where's my other student, Fuck-Up McDumbass?Critic (as Fuck-Up McDumbass): Hey, teach, here's my project, and it's AWESOME! Uh, it's got a lot of, uh, running, a lot of, uh, chili dogs, ha-huh, it's got...a monkey, and a chicken, and they just yell all the time, they go "blah blah blah blah blah!" It's totally awesome.Critic (as teacher): (not amused) McDumbass, did you put any effort into this?Critic (as McDumbass): Nah, I just got high.Critic (as teacher): *Beat, then gives an F*
- The Critic raging at the cliffhanger finale of Sonic SatAM.:
- "How do you even advertise a show like this? I mean, what did the commercials look like? 'Hey, kids! Ren and Stimpy making too much sense for ya'? Then put on ''The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog! You'll love this cosmic, out-of-body raping of your senses! It's like a Japanese show in English, only you still have no idea what's going on! You must be at least this high to watch.' "
- The Critic mocking Antoine's cowardice:
Antonie: This place is not good for our health. We go home, yes?
- The Critic joking about Bunnie Rabbot's infamous "one-eyed snake" line.
Critic-as-Bunnie: I wish I had a one-eyed snake come after me! Too bad my vagina eats people. What with it being robotocized and all!
- The Critic's response to the environmentalism of the show.
Critic: Wait, wait, I can't comprehend this...an environmental message that's...SUBTLE!?
(The word "SUBTLE" appears in big red letters)

Nostalgia Critic: I'm a carrot. *Nostalgia Critic turns into carrot and does Evil Laugh*
- In a meta-CMOF, Doug revealed that shortly after shooting this, he came down with a high fever and hallucinated that the carrot was coming to kill him and Rob.
- At one point, the Critic ends up upside-down over a looping animation of a man slipping on a banana and a giant walking banana slipping on the man, looks around, and announces "Wait, this isn't right." So he fixes his tie.
- His reactions to the opening of Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
NC: Is the window... talking?
- Then Pee-Wee pops up out of nowhere and yells, at which the Critic screams. The timing was perfect.
- The #9, which is Dragons Lair II: Time Warp. Especially funny is when he has unanswered questions about the Beethoven level:
- His ironic description of "Pink Elephants on Parade" as "a bubbly brain-bash that no amount of alcohol can make you forget."
- "All right, I can take the madness and chaos of this world, but Brad Pitt?? FOR SOME REASON, THAT'S JUST TOO FAR!" His comment on Brad Pitt making Cool World as "surreal as possible".
- The ending, where he tries to get "back to reality" but footage from these mind-warping moments keeps popping up.
Critic: None other than that swirling menace known as...Twister!!
*cue clip from the Twister Game Commercial*
Commercial: *singing* Twister! The HOT SPOT!!!

Critic: Mostly...devoid of hotness!
- Also from The Twister review:

- What happens whenever Jonas appears. *the Imperial March theme blares*
- This one:
Critic: Let's talk about disaster movies! *shows a picture of Tom and Jerry: The Movie* No, no, no...not that kind of disaster movie...
- Also from The Twister review:
- His attempt to end the overlapping music scene by summoning the Burger King. Who gets scared by it and runs and hides.
- Look out, it's the Sears Tower! *Sears Tower crashes into the scene courtesy of clipart* The Titanic! *Titanic crashes into scene* OZZY OSBOURNE! *Ozzy Osbourne in the middle of the road*
What's all this I hear about a tornado the- AIEE! *is run over by tornado chasers*

- His comment about the tornado literally chasing the heroes.
Critic: What, did they have tornado treats in their pockets?
- The Critic taunting the father in the beginning of the movie for his attempt to keep the tornado from opening the door. Also Dorothy's short appearance there. "Damn you, cheap Yugoslavian padlock!"
- "Uh-oh, the tornado levels are fine, but the awkwardness levels are through the roof!"
- "It's okay, they were taking me to McDonald's anyway!"
Critic: Well, they could still be OK. *Jonas's car explodes* Ooh, probably not.
- Later on: "Remember to drink Pepsi!" When Jonas gets sucked into a tornado.
- The Critic trying to hang himself after learning that there are 3,463,297 forced "I'm not into you" scenes.
- At the end of the movie, when the F5 tornado fails to kill the heroes and vanish:
Tornado: "I'll get you next time, Paxton... next time!"
- Critic's reaction upon hearing that Jonas got corporate sponsors to assist in their research.
Critic: "That son of a *pounds table* BITCH!"
- Commenting on Dorothy's useless-ness when it comes to tornado research.
Critic: (In a gleeful tone) "Wow! And what do the sensors tell us? That tornadoes are unpredictable! (Beat) FUCK!!!
- Talking about the stupid things that the characters continue to do throughout the film, whenever a tornado hits. Such as, taking shelter underneath an overpass, or strapping themselves to a pipe with a leather belt instead of hiding in a basement or a shelter... during an F5 tornado. It's made even more funny if you know that Doug lives in Chicago, IL, one of the states that resides right in Tornado Alley.
- The Running Gag about Jonas constantly endorsing products.
- When Bill and Jonas are driving next to each other, the Critic dubs voices in:
Bill: Blow me.
- When Jonas is introduced:
Jonas: (Southern drawl) Oh, I get it. You wanna take credit for mah design.
Critic: "You like that? I'm doing an American and a Southern accent, so you can't even tell that I'm British."
Garbage Pail Kids
- When Greaser Greg pulls out a switchblade:
- "Well, you know what they say; If at first you don't succeed, try try try try try trytrytrytrytry [video speeds up] TRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRYTRY [back to normal speed] UNTIL YOUR FUCKING LITTLE MIND CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!"
- The end of the Garbage Pail Kids review.
"My god. The movie has turned me into what it always was. A dirty piece of crap."
- My god. It's full of shit.
*creepy ambient music*
Older critic: A movie so bad it actually ages you as you watch it.
Critic: Wow... it's that bad?
Older critic: Yes. *music cuts off* Now piss off, I'm trying to eat my processed cereal.
- On the names 'Tangerine' and 'Juice'
"This isn't a cast of characters, it's a fucking grocery list!"
- During Juice's fight with Dodge: "He's beating up a 12 year old kid! What an asshole!... Heh, heh, he's getting beaten up by a 12 year old kid. What an asshole."
- "What is up with this guy? Did Dodger kill his father or something? What's with the hate!?"

Nostalgia Critic: Ah, words of wisdom from Valerie Vomit. Thank you so much.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get Abe Vigoda for Good Burger.
- His boggling over Edmund's line "I'm a fuwwy!"note as well as to the Big Lipped Alligator Moment later on.

"You know, fuck it. I'm going to come up with my own theory. God got bored and wanted to fuck with the rooster, so he played yo-yo with the sun. There, now I'm happy."
God: God hears you Chanticleer! I didn't mean to put the rotation of the planets out of order, I was just fucking with ya!

Libarian: You mean you don't need... I see.Nostalgia Critic: That's fine, that's fine. Ooh, a little girl! You looking for adventure!
- As the dragon: "See, this is why I should digest my food instead of leaving them alive to plot a scheme."
- Although considering what happened a month or so later, there certainly are a couple amusing moments in the Nostalgia Critic's review of Moonwalker.
Nostalgia Critic: *impersonating Jackson's voice* That's right, I don't care what you think...as this incredibly expensive musical representation of a middle finger clearly shows.Nostalgia Critic: *impersonating Jackson's voice* The Hills are alive, with the sound of JAMON!*As Jackson's running down streets* JAMONE JAMONE JAMONE! WOO! WOO-WOO-WOO! HE! HE! HE! OBA-JE-JAMONE! JE-JE-HA-HA! JEBA-JE! JEBA-JE-HA! OW!Nostalgia Critic: *impersonating Jackson's voice* You're ignorant!Nostalgia Critic: It's like they're at an orgy....but they forgot the sex....
- "Oh no! The plot!"
- With regards to the mixed-media career retrospective montage: "Michael Jackson's Flying Circus!"
- "This... is cwack."
- "When you wish upon a star... You turn into a fucking Transformer!"
- "Annie itchy oaky, Annie are you walkin', are you Wookie Annie"
- The bit regarding Leave Me Alone:
Nostalgia Critic: Are you kidding me? You spend the first half of the movie begging for attention, pleading people to acknowledge you as some sort of musical god, and now you're telling people to leave you alone?! What... did the aliens do to your brain, anyway?
- "FUCK!!! Michael's packing! "
- Referring to Mecha-Michael as "Poptimus Prime".
Nostalgia Critic (in falsetto, as Mecha-Michael guns down people): I just wanna bring love and joy to the world...
- "My god... Michael Jackson is an alien robot! This all suddenly makes sense!"
- "Watch as he goes G.I. Joe on their asses!" (Cue the G.I. Joe theme playing as Jackson proceeds to blow the everloving shit out of Pesci's army. Bonus points for Cobra Commander screaming "COBRA!!! RETREAT!!! RETREAT!!!", as Pesci helplessly watches his Mooks get vaporized.)
- When Michael turns into a spaceship and leaves the children: "Goodbye, kids! I hope you can catch a ride home!"
Top 11 Dumbest Superman Movie moments
- "What can you say about the Superman movies? I love all of them. Well, most of them. Well, some of them. Two of them."
- "Ah great, ya blew up the Wah Wah Machine!"
- Rescuing the dumb kid playing on the rails over Niagra Falls:
[Critic as] Kid: Remember me as a foolish cloooood!
[Critic as] Superman: Take that, Darwin! Natural selection doesn't win today!
Old vs New: Batman vs The Dark Knight
- "Now, to be fair, Christian Bale has a lot to act through. He has to play Bruce Wayne the college student, Bruce Wayne the outcast, Bruce Wayne the warrior, Bruce Wayne the drunken millionaire, and Bruce Wayne as Batman. Thank God they didn't ask him to do Bruce Wayne the transvestite. That would've destroyed him!"
- Christian Bale's Batman as a school teacher.
Dark Knight Batman!Critic: Goodnight, Moon! Goodnight, MOON! GOOD NIGHT, STAR!
- Critic's reaction after seeing Dark Knight!Joker's broadcasted threat to kill lives if Batman doesn't turn himself in. What really sells it is the little squeal he makes afterwards.
- At the end of the Nostalgia Critic's comparison of Batman and The Dark Knight, he gets a call from a spazzed out Christian Bale yelling at him about his comments on his voice-acting.
- This line:
Critic: You don't mess with Mr. Mom.
- Best Supporting Cast: Batman (by a Bob)
- On Batman's effects:
Critic: Yeah, that doesn't look like a model at all.King Arthur: Shh!
- The Critic getting continuously annoyed by the movie's lack of explanation for why the turtles are seperated.
Leonardo: I just feel like something's missing.Critic: Like the plot that brought us here.
- Also, his reaction to finding out that Michelangelo and Donatello have gotten regular jobs.
- "Excuse me, I just walked in from Kung Fu Panda."
- Regarding one of the monsters: "We must get him back to Where the Wild Things Are!"
- After Leonardo angrily rants at Raphael for going around as a masked hero and endangering their family...
Leonardo: Did you think that this was the right thing to do?Nostalgia Critic: YES! That is what you are supposed to do! I think that's the definition of superhero!
- The Critic mocking the extreme close-ups of Leonardo and Raphael's faces.
- During a fight scene, the Critic brings out a controller and pretends the movie is a video game. "Block block! Spin-attack, spin-attack! Jump jump jump! Drop-kick, drop-kick!"
- The Critic's dubbing of the Foot Ninjas after Karai refuses to serve the Stone Generals is pretty funny.
- At the end of the review, Ask That Guy with the Glasses cameos and does a product plug, explaining that the reason he's doing it is because he's an unbelievable whore.
- The Critic lampshading how brooding the turtles are in the movie.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Giant reptiles talking about things! Expressing their emotions! And analyzing them! Tune in next week, when Donatello discovers he might have bipolar depression! Stay tuned!
- From the Red Sonja review: "Are you over thewe~? Or over thewe~?"
- "I guess I should stab her again. I guess I should stab her again. I guess I should stab her again."
- The Critic's reaction to the topless dancing woman (now with added Censor Box!), when the wizard is showing who the intruders are.
- His Arnold Schwarzenegger impression, particularly the part where he dubs Arnold's character riding the sea serpent with "WHEEEEEEEHEHEHEHEEEE!!!!"
- The Nostalgia Critic comments on some of the fan mail he got from irate Mako fans for making fun of Splinter's voice in the TMNT movie the previous week:
""You don't mess with Mako, motherfucker," "Leave Mako alone, he is the Man," and "You should crucify your privates for making fun of Mako!" Well, there goes the one-year anniversary surprise...."
- And then saying "Sheesh, you guys are all acting like the guy died or someth—" (A memorial picture of Mako appears, showing that he did indeed die) "GOD DAMMIT!"
- And not to mention his flashback attempt:
Critic: (strokes his beard) I remember it like it was yesterday.(cross-fade from Critic looking up and stroking beard to... Critic looking up and stroking beard)Critic: Okay, maybe I DON'T remember it like it was yesterday, but I have a clip!
- Oh, a singing sword, great. It's the ancient mythology of a Bugs Bunny Cartoon!
- On the border between their land and that of the Evil Queen:
*the heroes ride up to see a giant chasm with dark clouds, storms and smoking ruins just across*Critic: Wow. Subtle.
- His repeated remarks on the god-awful special effects:
My God! It jump cuts people out of existence!Ha HA! I slipped the editor an extra fifty! Now I can jump cut wherever I want, MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Short Circuit 1 & 2
- "I, ROBOT! YOU, DEAD!"
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! JOOOOOOHNY FIIIIIIIIIIVE!"
- His reaction to the beating Johnny 5 gets toward the end of Short Circuit 2.
Michael Corleone screaming and cryingChris Crocker yelling "Leave him alone!"
- And the cuts between Johnny being mangled and:
- Doug's reaction to Ben saying "fucking" (though I'd swear he's saying "backing"). "Dude, Ben, watch the potty mouth, it's a kid's movie!" as well as the ensuing swear fest afterward.
- There is no God, there is only... FIVE!!!!!
- CRASH! ROAD RAGE! VEHICULAR MANSLAUGHTER! DISASSEMBLE THE WORLD!!!
- The very end of the Nostalgia Critic's review of Full House, where every time he begins to say his Catch Phrase, the Olsen twins attack him:
Nostalgia Critic: You know what I do and you know why I do it. (runs for his life)
- "The cash cow goes? MOOOO!"
- And his reaction to Becky, Jesse's wife.
Becky: You know, I did [Romeo and Juliet] in Jr. High. Wasn't a lot of fun, though. Well, I went to an all-girls' school.Critic: (Silently raises a finger with an expression of interest)Becky: In fact - I was Romeo.Critic: (Waffles for a bit, then re-raises finger)
- "Off you go, bitch!"
- "Oh my god, the Olsen twins are mutant alien robots bent on world domination! I knew it all along!"
- He points out that one of the side roles is being played by the same guy who did Aladdin's voice.
Nostalgia Critic: In fact, I ran into the actor and asked why he agreed to do the role.(voiceclip from One jump ahead ): Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat, tell you all about it when I've got the time.
- An extended example of Hilarious in Hindsight: the Critic thinks that the only real funny thing about the show is Bob Saget, who is quite prissy as Danny Tanner and is quite a contrast as a stand-up comedian.
Critic: Anyone who watches Bob Saget's stand-up knows he is a raunchy, raunchy man. And you know that saying all that family-friendly bullshit is probably killing him.
- The "Loosen his pants" line from North was (unintentionally) funny in and of itself, but the Critic moved it to a whole new level with his David Letterman-style "Nostalgia Critic's Top 10 Jokes for This Scene".
- North carries the dubious honor of having the worst joke he has ever heard in his life. He reacts accordingly.
Critic: Oh, oh, oh! Wait a minute! "Big Loss"!..... Because he's FAT!... and dead... and fat dead people are apparently hilarious!
- "Iiit's time to play... Spot The Joke!" *"Jeopardy!" Thinking Music*
- When Governor Ho is talking about how his wife is infertile:
Governor Ho: Hawaii is a very fertile land. In fact there is only one barren spot on the whole island. Unfortunately, it's Mrs. Ho.NC: That's the worst thing ever uttered by a human being, this movie is pure evil.
- When North is leaving the last family:
- His rundown of the Once Acceptable Targets cumulate in...
- During Winchell's villainous reveal:
Critic: My god, it's a young Dick Cheney!North's Lawyer: But for North to be martyred, doesn't he have to be killed by one of those angry parents?Winchell: Well... maybe we'll get lucky.Critic: IT IS DICK CHENEY! AAAAAH!
- The "climax" of the movie.
Nostalgia Critic: So North rushes towards his parents, the henchman gets out his gun, pulls the trigger AND.... it was all a dream. wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwWWWWWWWWWWHAT!?! You actually went to the lowest common denominator and made it all a dream?!! YOU ASS OF SHIT!!!
- And then there's the ending to the movie
Nostalgia Critic: I hope you enjoyed this journey of racist insensitivity. Allow us to replace the credits with the word "WE'RE SORRY" 100 TIMES!!!
- And then there's the ending to the movie
- This gem
Bruce Willis: ...that a bird in the hand is always greener then the grass on the other guy's bushes.BeatNostalgia Critic:...I hate you.
- During Bruce Willis' first appearance:
Bruce Willis: Look kid, just because I'm in a bunny suit doesn't mean I...Critic:Yes, yes it does. Whatever you were going to say, being in a bunny suit pretty much destroys all credibility.
- "You're not. You're really not."
"READ... A FUCKING... BOOK!"
- And shortly afterwards, the Critic's response to Alaskan people allegedly leaving their elders to die. The Critic then explains that, while this WAS done, it was only in times of famine, and only as a last resort.
- The Critic should know better by now than to be Tempting Fate, but noooooo...
"It's not like they got Kathy Bates, spraypainted her face and slapped on a black wig like a Minstrel show..." Yep, she appears just as predicted. "NO, NO..."
- When North files away after having spent only a few seconds with the Amish family:
Critic: Well, at least their cruelty to the Amish was short.
- The Critic singing "Ride of the Valkyries" in Woody Woodpecker's trademark laugh.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Making of the Coming out of Their Shells Tour
- The Nostalgia Critic and the Angry Video Game Nerd's team-up to review Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Making of Coming Out Of Our Shells is wall to wall hilarity, especially the repeated gags with the coffee mugs and both critics' emotional breakdown when the "concert" continues well, well, well after the credits have ended.
- WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?!
Nostalgia Critic: I remember it, so you don't have to.
Angry Video Game Nerd: And I....shit on your momma's face.
(cue credits, the review keeps going with Nostalgia Critic & the Angry Video Game Nerd beating each other up)
- And their reaction when Raphael says that he 'was banging on some pipes'.
Critic and Nerd: *recoiling in disgust* Woahhhhh!Nerd: I don't know what he's talking about, banging on pipes.Critic: That's fucking gross.
- The review starts with the music used for the openings to later episodes of the 80's sitcom ALF.
- WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?!
- The Critic and Nerd making fun of the Turtles' awful animatronics/lip-synching.
- The Nerd proving that the turtles' terrible lip-synching could be combined with any song...by synching a performance clip with Raining Blood.
- "They don't even look like the Ninja Turtles! They look like Ninja Frogs! You're listening to FROGS! IT'S ALL A LIE!"
- The Critic and Nerd raging over the fact that you can't play a bass guitar with only one string. The Critic then likens it playing tennis with a one-stringed tennis racket, and shows a photo of what that might look like.
- Them making fun of how the Turtles' mouths hang open.
Nerd: (mouth hanging open) You talk like this all the time, don't you, Critic?Critic: (mouth hanging open) Sure do, Nerd! Why would it be otherwise?
- Comparing the Turtles' music to Christian rock.
Critic (as Raphael): And now I'd like to tell you about this other dude I know!Nerd (as Donatello): Who's that, Raph?Raphael: A totally gnarly dude named Jesus. He died for our sins, and that's AWESOME!Donatello: Jesus rocks, dude!COWA-LUJAH!
- The Nerd criticizing the design of the Splinter puppet.
Nerd: He [Splinter] looks like road that's been killed more than in Ninja Turtles III!Critic: What does that mean?Nerd: I means that, road that's been killed, or... killed, dead... I don't know! It just means I'm angry!
Raphael: If you coulda heard us at first, man, we were BAD! Like, "Thank you, dude! Next!"Nerd: Yeah, not like now! Now, we're fuckin' awesome!Critic: We're incredible!Nerd: We're like Gods.Critic: We play for the pope!
- "Dude, I am so wasted!"
- The conversation following the Critic's comment that the actors gave up on sentences and started saying random words.
Critic: Excellent!Nerd: Awesome!Critic: Radical!Nerd: Tubular!Critic: Paper!Nerd: Olive Garden!Critic: The alphabet!Nerd: Goat cheese!
- Both critics trying to find the "message" the producers are talking about.
Nerd: Eat fattening pizza?Critic: Annoy your parents with loud music?Nerd: No, we know what the real message is.
- The Nerd's reaction to Shredder.
Nerd: Oh my God, that is the WORST Shredder I've ever seen! What is he, fuckin' Iron Chef Shredder?Critic: Hey, where'd you get that costume? Target or Wal-Mart?
- The Nerd's rant on the kid skateboarding across the stage:
Nerd: There's a scene where a kid just skateboards across the stage. Why? Did he get lost or something? Maybe he made a wrong turn on Bodacious Boulevard. Who the hell was that kid? Little fucking bastard. Where's the security when you need it? There's a kid skateboarding across the stage!
- This bit, when Raph starts rapping solo:
Nerd: I love this one scene where Donatello gives up and just walks off the stage. He's like "Fuck this, man. This shit's the worst."
- When one of the record producers is interviewed:
Billy Brill: Madonna will go into therapy when she sees this video. It's gonna drive her crazy. You don't know what to expect on any group in any video. I think this group and this album is going to be around for a long time. I wouldn't be surprised if they win a Grammy Award or an American Music Award. It's not going to surprise me at all.
Nerd: What a schmuck.
- In the wake of the controversy over his Mako bashing, the review of Sidekicks makes the Critic's desperate attempts to resist making jokes about Mako's character funnier than any actual jokes could have been. And then it ends in a gleeful Crossing the Line Twice moment that leaves you completely unsure how offended to be.
- "(in high pitched voice) But why is Chuck Norris that awesome?? (in normal voice) Well, if you don't know the answer by the time you finished watching this movie, then you don't know Chuck!" -cue explosion with Chuck Norris' head in front-
- The massive implied mockery of Mako's Fan Dumb.
- "A-CHUCK A-NOOOORIIIIIIIIS!" Later repeated in the Captain America review. It still doesn't disappoint. And again in his Alone in the Dark (2005) review. It never gets old!
- His impersonation of Mako and the main protagonist in one scene is downright hilarious.
- (Off screen) *Splat* "Stop throwing dough at me!" "Next, we throw bottles!" *Glass shatters*
- "Chuck Norris will cure the disabled!"
- When he was criticizing the Smoking Man's horrible acting?
"How do you think he'd react if he got shot? [a gunshot is heard] Gunshot? Gunshot? Gunshot?! I've been gunshot! R2-D2, where are you?"
- "Get HIIIIIIIIIIM!"
- "I'm actIIIIIIIIIING!"
- During the cowboy dream scene when Chuck Norris orders a milk.
"Milk is now officially known as Chuck Norris Messiah Juice! Anything else we can do for you, sire?"
Critic: By the way, did you notice that the milk glasses are there when they come in, and then suddenly disappear when they order? You may think this is a hole in the movie, but it's not. Chuck Norris is actually so intimidating that the milk pre-ordered itself in preparation for his arrival and then went back under because they thought they'd be presumptuous. Such is the way of Norris!
- And what immediately follows it:
- Making Barry's head asplode when Chuck introduces himself.
- The ending: On denying the Chuck Norris Facts, the Critic gets his ending Catch Phrase interrupted by a Bolt of Divine Retribution courtesy of Chuck Norris' head that's planted on a picture of God as Chuck ascend to heaven and met Mako there... and Mako is not too pleased at the Critic despite his attempts to please him.
Mako: Thanks. I really hated that guy.
- "Wow, they actually had a guy who went, (makes stupid face) "Uh-huh." I didn't know they still had those in the movies."
- This bit, when a scene starts after a meal has already been eaten:
Critic: You skipped over the meal they had together? Why?!.... Did Chuck Norris not like it?!
Noreen Chan: That's how we teach children to use chopsticks. Did you notice my uncle's stopped using his halfway through the meal?
Critic: NO! Because you didn't show it! Doy!
- "Do they ever freeze in an embarrassing pose? *demonstrates* Like one of them's just standing there, taking a whizz, and then suddenly 'Oh, shit, the sun! Motherf-! *freezes*"
- When Goliath lets out all his anger in a shout:
Goliath: "I've been denied everything! EVEN MY RE-VENGE!!!"
Critic: "And on top of that, I THINK I HAVE A SPLIN-TER!!!"
Goliath!Critic: Well, at least nothing else can go wrong- *sees his friends turned to stone permanently* AW, GOD !
- Shortly after that:
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment!
Spork: The lineage of the sporks goes on for several eons. In fact we predate the dinosaurs.Critic: ...Indeed.
- His description of "Future Tense" and its various plot twists:
"[...] where Goliath arrives in the future, and all hell broke loose as Xanatos has apparently taken over. Trying to set things right, all the Gargoyles get killed and slaughtered by Xanatos's army. But then it turns out Xanatos is really a computer with all the memories of the original person. But then it turns out it wasn't Xanatos at all, it was Lexington, who's become overtaken by madness. But then it turns out that it was all an illusion by Puck to try and get a mythical emblem [the Phoenix Gate] from Goliath. And then it turns out that it may or may not have been a dream. And then it turns out that Goliath is a woman! * cue fan art of female!Goliath* Okay, that didn't happen, but you get the idea!"
- Some creative editing makes it appear that in the pilot, Elisa goes over the side of the roof again after Goliath carries her back up and Bronx surprises her.
- His joke about how Lexington should have been named "Queens" serves as being Hilarious in Hindsight when one learns that Lexington was indeed gay.
- His description of "Future Tense" and its various plot twists:
- Goliath: "Those of your kind call me Goliath."
- Critic: "... But my friends call me......... Go."
- His setting part of Goliath's dialogue to '70s porno music, stating that his wife must have married him just for the voice.
- Critic imagining what the offspring of Goliath and Elisa would look like.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
- His review of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a hilarious homage to his review of the first live-action Transformers movie...and is several minutes of pure Nerd-gasming. The icing on the cake of hilarity, however, is a cameo by none other than Chester A Bum
- "Dude, did he just steal my act?"
- Chester A. Bum's cameo in Steel. "Oh my god, they're filming a Shaq movie! I'm outta here!"
"Steel - The only movie Chester A. Bum does not think is the greatest movie he's ever seen in his life."
- Best summed up by a comment on Youtube.
- "It could have been worse. He could have played Wonder Woman. (pause) And yes, I'm going to spare you that image. I'm the Nostalgia Critic, I remember it HA!" (cue image of Shaq dressed up as Wonder Woman) "Let it haunt your nightmares!" Aa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
- "But one crucial piece of information still remains! DID GRANDMA EVER PERFECT THE SOUFFL…?!"
- SHE DID! *Ode to Joy starts playing as the Critic rejoices*
- This joke:
Sparky: "How do you read?" (referring to a wireless earpiece)Critic as Steel: "Not well. I said yes to this script, didn't I?"
- When seeing Richard Roundtree's character, he utters a Big "NO!", and sings a parody of the Shaft song :
"Who's the private dick whose film career just went to shit ?""SHAFT !"Critic: Ya damn right... *wipes a tear off his face*
- Later, when Roundtree's character mentions he especially likes Steel's weapon's shaft, both the audience and the Critic start booing him.
- The Critic imitating one of the villain's odd laughs.
- "You think youíre gonna get away from me, but you're not, because it's on." (...) "A gate? Nah. Gates can't hold me, especially when it's on." (...) "Well, that just magnifies the amount of on-ness that's goin' on right now. Did I mention it's on? It's on."
- "So he jumps off the building and falls into the garbage where he belongs."
- This bit, when the characters are in a bar:
Critic: By the way, what bar just advertises "Beer"? That's pretty generic, isn't it? Oh, yeah! Iíve always been a fan of "Beer" beer! Itís almost as good as "Burger" burgers!
- When the criminals are discussing how you can find a lot of things on the internet, "not just porno":
Critic: Huh. Tell me more about this "In-tor-net." Do you think it'll ever catch on?
Top 11 Cereal Mascots
- Two words: Cocoa Puffs. Crosses the line so many times yet it finally just loops back to being hysterical again.
Critic: Remember, kids, life may be rough, but don't do the Puffs.
(a clip of the infamous drug PSA with Pee-wee Herman is shown)
Pee-wee: It isn't glamorous or cool or kids' stuff.
- The Critic smashing Lucky.
Nostalgia Critic: Now you're dead, how do you like that? (spits on the mangled Lucky)
- The Critic's incredulity toward giving the Honey Nut Cheerios bee a name, and an unimaginative one at that: Buzz Bee.
Last Action Hero
- The Critic flipping out at all the "random" cameos from Last Action Hero.
- "My butt cheeks have their own license!"
- "BLOW! SOMETHING! UP!"
- The "POOT DAT COOKIE DAUUUUUN!!!" remix at the end.
- Shouting, "Look, elephant!" in order to get away from people, only to trigger the Burger King (discontinued) Running Gag on the Critic.
- "E.T. phone lawyers!"
- His wonderfully deadpan "Movie, are you on drugs?"
- When Jack Slater falls from a building:
Critic: (as Arnold) This is what I like to call the "Wile E. Coyote". I do not actually fall until I realize there is nothing supporting me. This style of slapstick comedy was originated in the 1940s. Warner Brothers was beginning to make its mark inó (Slater catches a crane) DAH! I WAS JUST ABOUT TO TELL THEM ABOUT THE GOLDEN AGE OF CINEMA ANIMATION! I EAT YOU! I EAT YOU ALL!!!
Old vs New: LOTR Animated vs LOTR
- "Now technically speaking this is all opinion based...but I have an online show, which automatically means that my opinion is better than yours." Beat "Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah."
- This exchange:
Critic: Well thank you, Pippen!Merry: I'm Merry!Critic: Whatever, you're all short!
- The critic makes fun of Sam in the cartoon version. "And I want my bottle!"
Sam: Oh my. Oh HOORAY!
Critic: Oh God... SHADDAP!!!
Sam: Oh HOORAY!
- Later, the clip makes a repeat appearance:
Critic: (pointing) SHADDAP!
- His impression of the animated Gandalf is also hilarious. And his impression of Gollum.
- Three words: "Sauron go BOOM!"
- "MOSH PIT!"
- "If you could kindly stab yourself with that, I'd be most thankful."
- The Review Ironic Echoes when the Critic gives a point to either the old or the new:
Critic: Point goes to the old.
(Jackson) Frodo: What do you know about it? NOTHING!
Critic: Point goes to the new.
(Bakshi) Legolas: Then you know nothing.
Captain N: The Game Master
- His summation of Captain N and Link's constant competing and trying to one-up the other.
*singing* "My cock's bigger than your cock...my cock's double the size that yours is..."
- Then when Zelda kisses Kevin, he reacts as Link, who in his show could never get to first base with her.
NC: (as Link) Wh-wh-wha-WHAT?! ... BITCH!
- Then when Zelda kisses Kevin, he reacts as Link, who in his show could never get to first base with her.
- CAPTAIN N: THE GAY MASTER!
- "It's not easy being g-g-g-g-green!"
- "Link! And you brought your friends for my coming-out party!" *DOO-DOO-DOO-DOOOOOOO!*
- "Now, [my whip's] sexual preference I can't speak for!"
- Mario as Isildur. "Suck my big fat meatballs!"
Critic: Mario!! MARIOOOOOOOO!!!!
- And at the end
Critic: As for me, I'm still waiting for half the cast to turn up on Video Game Confessions!Dominic: OI! You really don't want to see that. It, uh, it involves Mother Brain's genitalia.
- "The ruler of the Palace is Princess Lana. Oh yeah, from the game...*Shrugs* '80's Fashion Vomit'?"
- His comments on the voices of Mega Man and Kid Icarus.
(as Mega Man) It's like if Popeye smoked an entire Marlboro factory!(as Kid Icarus) My testicus haven't droppedicus.
- The commentary also features Doug and Rob impersonating Mega Man, expressing their distaste for his voice.
- Concerning Simon Belmont, with the image of Simon in Simon's Quest:
Nostalgia Critic: "I mean, where did they even get the idea to gay him up so much? I mean the original hero has long hair, wears leather, carries a whip, jumps around in a skirt, I think I just answered my own question."
- Then you remember that Captain N Simon is wearing an aviator outfit, complete with goggles. A medieval vampire hunter dressed as a 1930's pilot. And Mr. Forehead meets Mr. Hand for the fifteenth time.
- Commenting on just how bad the animation can be at times, showing a couple of scenes from one episode showing Simon with the world's biggest duh face.
- Imitating Captain N and Princess Lana's stilted dance.
Critic:Yeah, shake that one leg! Pull off the geriatric drowning look!
- The Random Plot Generator, which is shown during the Critic's disdain for keeping the king alive, just not around, as an excuse for Lana to be a princess instead of a queen, as the Critic thinks she should be.
Critic!!Lana: I'm still a princess because my father's...
Random Plot Generator: Lost... Dead... Drunk... Darth Vader... Stuck...
Critic!!Lana: ...stuck... Yeah, that's it. ...in a...
Random Plot Generator: Time warp... Black hole... Castle... Elevator... Parallel dimension...
Critic!!Lana: ...parallel dimension... Ooh, that's rich. ...where he has no royal authority.
Random Plot Generator: He just eats combos and farts.
Critic!!Lana: So I don't have to make any hard choices or take any responsibility...
Random Plot Generator: Just bumming it.
Critic!!Lana: ...because he still technically is king and I just have to smile and wear pretty dresses.
Random Plot Generator: Go me!
Critic!!Lana: Politics is FUN!!!
We're Back: A Dinosaur's Story
- "WHAT! NO! YOU'RE RAPING SPIDERMAN, YOU FUCKING DINOSAUR FASCIST! LEAVE THAT AMERICAN ICON ALONE!"
- This moment.
Professor Screweyes: I like to keep things simple.Cecilia: But there's nothing written on it.
- "A Big Lipped-" (startled) "JESUS God!"
- "I don't like the slutty girl. She has kind of a Lolita thing going on. It seems unnatural."
- The scene with the hat landing on a little girl's head. After a few repeats of "A child is looking at the same hat..."
Hat lands.Raoul Puke: ...The fuck? PURPOSE, MOVIE! WE! NEED! PURPOSE!
- "Kid! You're on a raft with fucking dinosaurs! How bout a little acknowledgement of this miracle huh!?
- "The rex turns into a drowningsaur as Louie manages to pick him up with some heavy machinery."
- "Looks like someone's getting a bone-asaurus! Haha.. that joke is below me, I apologize."
- "This is The Land Before Time on crystal meth!" That sums it up.
- After being thoroughly startled and freaked out by the Circus of Fear scene with its bats, giant skulls grim-reapers, smoke with faces, and fire-breathing Chinese dragons.
Raoul Puke: This is David Lynch's circus! Nobody should be subjected to this!
- After hearing Cecilia's plea, "Let no bad happen!," Puke claims only Yoda would use that sort of speech.
- And then Yoda's reappearance when Neweyes repeats the phrase.
Warriors of Virtue
- Komodo from Warriors of Virtue is a CMOF all by himself, but the Critic declaring him the missing Looney Tunes character really puts it over the top.
- About Komodo "I love this guy. Why doesn't he have his own Saturday morning cartoon show?"
- "I'm trying to do every Johnny Depp performance I've ever seen...." Particularly funny considering his previous review was an impersonation of Depp impersonating Hunter S. Thompson.
- "Now allow me to continue SHOUTING AT RANDOM!!!"
- The Linkara cameo, as well as:
Oh no, he's in Ferngully! *screams*
- "The kitchen is on fire! Stop telling the kid the stupid story and help us!" Somehow, offscreen voices in Chinese restaurants are always comedy gold on this site.
- "The Monarch is not pleased."
- "Oh, Dance time." *cue music*
- "By all your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!"
- "IT WAS A LIFE!"
- The Critic getting annoyed at how much of a show-off Ming the chef is.
Critic: All right, even Iron Chef doesn't show off this much, guy! Just friggin' relax!
(Ming jump-kicks the water faucet)
Critic: Okay, do you really have to jump kick the faucet? I mean, is it absolutely necessary?!
Critic: Okay, this guy should be on Special Forces or something. What the hell is he doing in a damn kitchen?!
- Then a few scenes later, another chef slips and the food he was carrying flies up into the air. Ming not only catches the chef before he hits the ground, but catches the food as well.
- The Captain America review: On how the Critic plays out the Batman Lemony Narrator describing the peril of Cap.
How will Captain America get out of this one???? Will he turn the White House into rubble? Or will he escape to have his American ass beaten once more???? Tune in next time... which is... Right now!
- The section about the "Psyche-Hitler".
- "I just decapitated a hot chick! Truly, I am the great American hero!"
- "Why don't we just label everything?!"
- The cover of the Vogue magazine, with the captions...
Take Our Test: Does he love you or will he get frozen in ice for 50 years?Keep your Red Skulls their reddest80 ways to turn the American flag into hideous spandex
- "We just unthawed a basketball mascot!"
Top 11 Nostalgic F*ckups
- "I've watched every single one of your videos 37 times and discovered a shitload of mistakes that you should be hanged for! HANGED FOR!"
Nostalgia Critic: So, every once in a while, I make one or two little mistakes...Douchy McNitpick: 35,670 to be exact!Nostalgia Critic: (annoyed) ALL RIGHT!
- The Critic mentions how he made his Superman countdown after filming his Melvin sketch, which he claims will never be mentioned again, but then the song starts up and Critic tells it to shut up and play something else, when it plays the old Doug theme, prompting him to scream & shoot the camera.
- "I mean, it's not like I walk around wearing other's women's apparel all the time..."
Critic: Douchy! Where'd you get that?!Douchy: From my deepest hate of you! I also have a picture of you kissing Divine and doing the can-can with Hitler! Look, he's doing the can-can with Hitler! (laughs like a maniac) I'm funny! (still laughing)Critic: I really hate you...Douchy: HA!
- "If I can't trust an Internet celebrity who watches cartoons and shouts obscenities, who can I trust?!"
Critic: People with some expertise?Douchy: NOOOOO!!!
- The gag in the credits about Doug's less-than-stellar spelling.
Douchy: "Made" is spelled wrong!
Alone in the Dark
- The Critic, Spoony, and Linkara acting like the
Three StoogesThree Schmuckheads.
- Especially the end, where they devolve into a Three Stooges slapstick spectacle that must be seen to be believed.
- Any time the trio (or at least Spoony and Linkara) break into song:
[To tune of Star Wars] Booooooor-ing, this is so booooor-ing~! This is so booooor-ing~! Get to the shooooooow~!Padding-padding-pad-ding! Padding-padding-pad-ding! Padding-padding-pad-ding!
- The review is a CMOF. Especially the "randomly shooting in the dark which includes cameo appearances by-
90s Kid: Dude, what's with all the flashing lights? (Is shot) Not... radical. (Collapses)
Dr. Insano: I brought SCIENCE! (Is shot. Collapses)
Ma-Ti: Pizza delivery—(shot)—HEAAART! (Collapses)
Chester A Bum.: CHANGE! YA GOT—! (Is shot. Collapses.)
- Spoony making the Nostalgia Critic say I like to wear woman's clothing was just hilarious. Even funnier was the Critic's reaction. And the Brick Joke.
(The Critic poses dramatically while Spoony types for him)I'm acting. *beat* I like to wear women's clothing...
- Also, Nostalgia Critic's failed attempt at impersonating Gollum while using his computer to "talk".
- "No, no, honey, it's okay..."
- Linkara's introduction, particularly the deadpan Critic's response: "Oh, Jesus. No."
- The Nostalgia Signal.
- You're. An. Idiot.
- "Zuu-AH! Motherfu-AH! Zu-AH! You a-hole!"
- Why the hell was I in Star Trek 6?
- The film's absurdly long Opening Narration.
Linkara: How much text is in this movie?!Spoony: This isn't a bill for healthcare, let's get to the friggin' action already!
- The crew calling out a soliders name as he falls to his death. "Marco! Marco!"
Critic: "Polo."Linkara: See, this is what happens when you go up against Sub-Zero.
- "Mmm, that's good MacGuffin!"
Spoony: So lets go back the way we just came!NC: Blocking at its best, folks.
- The whole flickering lights sequence. More specifically, the parts where Linkara and Spoony start making "spooky ghost noises" to accompany it.
- "Unless of course that man was... CHUCK NORRIS? A-CHUCK-A-NO...no, not even him."
- Spoony lampshading the Smart People Wear Glasses trope... accidentally slighting both the Critic and Linkara in the process.
Spoony: I need glasses.
- The Critic spends the video using his computer's monotone text-to-speech voice to speak for him - which makes it even funnier when it says something completely insane.
- "Careful! Jesse Ventura's been known to kill people!"
- After Christian Slater's character causes the taxi driver's death:
NC: You know, for protecting us from the things we don't believe in, he really sucks at it.
- The random yelling sequence. Bonus points for Linkara slipping in a small reference to Metal Gear Solid 2.
Linkara: I NEED SCISSORS! 61!
- The Running Gag of the many Red Shirts suffering from Retirony
Linkara: Things look bad when suddenly the lights in the museum start flickering on and off, and it probably doesn't help that the security guard has just two days left before retirement.Spoony: ...and it's probably a bad thing to mention that every single one of these soldiers has just two days left before retirement.Spoony: And you know what makes this really tragic is that everyone in the city had just two days left before retirement-!NC: Shut up.
- Linkara's reaction to the constant Jump Cuts
"This movie jumps around more than a... Mexican jumping bean on a... grashopper on a... jackrabbit on a... pogostick!" (Beat, as he looks to the other guys) "This movie sucks!"
- "Some doors are meant to stay shut." "Yeah, like the DVD case to this movie."
- "So we see the professor guy apparently has been keeping some of these monsters for himself, taking their blood and injecting it into his own. What does this have to do with the story? Nothin'. Uwe Boll is just a weird fuck."
- In the bloopers, Doug can't keep a straight face while Rob does the Critic's intro in the computer voice. So Rob starts speaking like Mrs. Doubtfire. Doug gives him the finger.
- The Blank Check review has the Critic repeatedly, ahem, bumping the bottom of his desk whenever the movie's resident hot woman appears. Later, during the scene where she ends up running through a fountain and getting soaking wet, he snatches up a hammer and starts pounding the, er, little Critic back down.
- The end of the review features the Critic turning off his 'pleasant' mode.
"FUCK YOU ALLLL!!!"
- The end of the review features the Critic turning off his 'pleasant' mode.
- The whole Mundane Made Awesome sequence about Michael Jackson jokes. After making a joke about Michael Jackson, who had recently died, he explains why he just inverted the Too Soon trope by giving a grand speech, complete with epic music and the American flag in the background.
- BAD TOUCH!
Critic: Stop harassing that Kazaam guy! We have lip-to-lip contact here! HURRY!
- Notify an adult, preferably not another pedophile!
- The "Bland Shit 101" title screen.
- The references to all the other bad movies Tone Loc has been in.
Juice: What's wrong with you, boy? You know you oughta be in school.Critic (as Juice): Don't make me sing about how I'm gonna eat ya.
- Superimposing a big red DOUCHE over the main character's father giving his brothers quite a lot of money, while giving Preston little to none. The father's reasoning ? Preston's brothers want to start their own business, while Preston himself doesn't. Even though Preston is too young to do so, and that his brothers, despite wanting to open their own business, don't know how to operate a computer. "DOUCHE" indeed.
- This bit:
Critic: Two obnoxious brothers who like to pick on him all the time! You mean we get TWO unintelligent bullies who have no human emotion outside of just being a stereotypical teen antagonist? It must be my birthday!
Old vs New: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) vs. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
- The end of his Old vs New Charlie and the Chocolate Factory adaptations review, where the annoying Ear Worm from the 2005 adaptation plays, and when the Critic yells for something else, first "It's A Small World", then the DuckTales theme song, and finally the Doug theme song play. Quoting "Duck Amuck," the Critic angrily insists that the person messing with the sound show himself, at which point the camera pans out and we find Douchey McNitpick pulling the strings.
- From the same video, his kindergarten drawing of what a monster from the original novel looks like: a giant monster with the heads of his parents ripping the Critic in half. The Critic's response? I had issues.
- When he's talking about how the 2005 Charlie is so perfect he could try out for Jesus. He shows the part where he breaks his candy bar to share with his family:
Critic As Charlie: Do this, in memory of me.
Grandpa Joe: (singing out the window during the "I've got a golden ticket" musical number) Good morning! Look at the sun!(an animated tomato flies through the window and hits him in the face)Critic's voice: (imitating the neighbors) SHUT UP!
- Point 3: The Songs. When discussing the soundtrack of the Burton version, Critic points out that the only catchy theme was the puppet song, which was earbleedingly catchy, much to his own chagrin.
Critic: But enough of that... (the song keeps playing) I said enough alright. For God's sakes!! At least play something else!! ("Small World" plays and Critic starts screaming)
Cool as Ice
- The Critic's review of Cool as Ice starts off with him simply laughing uncontrollably at the movie to the point where he can't even say his Catch Phrase, and just gets funnier from there, especially when he keeps making fun of Vanilla Ice's ridiculous outfits and dance moves.
"There's His Whiteness! ....why does he have a Post-It Note on the side of his head?""It's the latest dance moves! ....the Raggedy Ann Seizure.""Look at his hair! It's like a level from Super Mario Bros..!""The spatula on my head approves of this situation.""So we see the human crossword puzzle crossing the street....""Dig those dance steps. I think they call that the "Two-Year-Old Who Has To Pee" move.""You like my shorts? I got 'em from the Hamburglar.""This looks like a job for Chewed-up Black Condom Man!"
- Some of the greatest and lamest puns ever.
"Wow. What an icehole.""Ah, the Zen of Ice. (Pause) Zice..."
- And the White-O-Meter, which tops out at "Conan O'Brien" and "Invisible."
- There's also the whole 'fast-forwarding' through the house scene, which the Critic calls 'A demented version of the cleaning-the-room scene from Mary Poppins.' And this line...
"Oh yeah Kat, words of wisdom. Drop dat zero, and get with the hero." "Yeah, got that off The Disney Channel."
- "Wonder Bread, eaten by a Conservative congressman, in the middle of a snow storm, isn't this white."
- Oh, and the 'interesting' dance moves used at the end.
Nostalgia Critic: Aw, no no no no nononononono! That's like three pages of the Kama Sutra!
- When Ice saves Cathy, and later when he battles the thugs, NC parodies the 60's Batman music:
- The infamous bike jump, in which the White-O-Meter goes critical and the screen explodes in blinding light.
NC: GAH! TOO WHITE!!
- "Oh, those horrid rapscallions!"
- Go dumbass, go dumbass, go! Go dumbass, go dumbass, go!
- "Luckily, Max Headache comes along..."
- The sequence where the movie constantly shift between Ice talking to Cathy, and the two "frolicking", to NC's annoyance, When he demands the movie to pick a scene and stick with it, we get... frolicking with talking voiceover.
- This joke:
Ice: You need a psychiatrist!Pot: You are so black!Kettle: I'm not black, you're black!
- The Critic's expression throughout this argument screams, "What."
- Some of the greatest and lamest puns ever.
Ice: I was just chillin' in the 'hood, and thought you might want to go for a ride.Critic: The 'hood? The 'HOOD?! What hood, the hood of your CAR?!
- The Critic imitates Kathy's mom when she 1st meets Johnny
Oh, ho! You must be one of those imitation black people Iíve heard about.Remember, honey. Whenever you see someone like that, just run straight home and watch Shaft, OK?
- So Ice drops her back home after saving her from the very slow-moving vehicle.
- The very first line.
"Should wrestlers star in movies? This is the question that has plagued mankind for centuries. On the one hand, it seems ideal; I mean, they're already sort of acting, aren't they? I mean they're wrestlers. They know how to play to the crowd, they know how to make everything look thematic—it's practically in their blood. On the other hand, Suburban Commando."
- Also, IT'S AFTERBURNER!!!
- Four words: "I was frozen today!"
"I almost kissed you, but I wouldn't."
- Also, his use of that clip directly after this line:
- The NC combining three of his running gags together to form Big Lipped Alligator Moment-Elephant-Chuck Norris.
- His deadpan reaction to the villain losing his hand because of a flying envelope is also hilarious.
- Rip-off/This is a rip-off/This is a rip-off/Are you kidding??
- His reaction to Shelley Duvall trying to seduce Christopher Lloyd.
- "This is a movie starring THE HULKSTER! as an intergalactic freedom fighter trying to hide out on Earth. What's that? That's even too crappy to be a TGIF sitcom?"
- The Critic being amused by the tough guys.
Tough Guy: (to Hulk Hogan) Hey! Goldilocks!
Critic: (chuckles) That was funny.
(after Hogan assumes the tough guys will try to beat him up for almost scratching the tough guy's car...)
Tough Guy: ...What are you, nuts? This is the '90s. We're gonna sue ya.
Critic: (chuckles) That's also funny. The movie clearly should've been about these guys.
The Next Karate Kid
- "Cockroach killer." "Whore." "Slut." "I do not know you."
- "And the award for Worst Exposition Ever Uttered In A Movie goes to...The Next Karate Kid! (applause) You suck!"
- "I JUST SHIT MYSELF."
- "Hilary Swank. You may know her from Boys Don't Cry..." [footage of Hilary's character dying] "...Million Dollar Baby..." [footage of Hilary's character dying] "...and my personal favorite, Dramatic Performance Followed by Death."
Hilary Swank: Yay, I'm finally a complete person! [gets shot in the head]
- When Julie outruns the security guard: "Don't make run. I'm filled with pork chops and syrup!"
- "Typical teen love story. Boy meets girl, boy challenges girl to fight on docks. [beat] Something's not right about that."
- "'cus this is filler, filling up the time..."
- The end of the review , in which the critic, dressed as a Ghostbuster, chases Casper right into GMX (with him getting a whole panel room involved in his chase).
- When he runs into a Chester A. Bum cosplayer:
NC: Hey, don't I know you from somewhere?Cosplayer: (pause) CHANGE!
- "Oh! Don't worry, not that late." "I already had an abortion." Casper's facial reactionnote was priceless and then: "Okay that was a little disturbing" "WOW!" "Just a little dark humor, I mean it's nothing about--" "WOW!" "Alright let's just move on!" "...you sicken me."
- The DVD shows the raw footage of the Casper chase which continues running as Doug returns to his hotel room and plays up his removing the costume as stripping. On the commentary, Doug suddenly realizes that someone is probably masturbating to the scene, maybe even with the commentary on. "I hope it's a woman, but let's face it, it's probably a man."
- "There, I did a kids film, ya happy?
- "You can see him smiling cause we're actually waving the check at him off screen."
- "EXPOSITION, EXPOSITION!!"
- Just to mention one joke and let Wiki Magic do the rest:
NC: ...[Superman IV's] morals are bullshit, its plot is half-thrown together, and physics take a back-seat to mediocre special effects that you're more likely to see in one of Linkara's videos!Linkara: HEY!!!NC: Get over it, you comic geek, your special effects suck!Linkara: "Bat Credit Card".Linkara: (smiling) He's The Nostalgia Critic, he remembers it so you don't have to!
- "BAT CREDIT CARD? JEE-YAAAAAAY-ZUS!!!"
- Linkara's reaction to Big Lipped Alligator Moment is nothing short of priceless.
- The opening with Linkara doing NC's lines, and NC finding out.
- "It's time to play International Politics!"
Linkara: Alright, Nostalgia Critic! You're Israel, a country surrounded on all sides by enemies who would happily see you wiped off the map! However, the only thing keeping them at bay is your nuclear arsenal! Now Superman comes in and says he's gonna take that arsenal away! What do you do???NC: Um, tell him to hump my ass?Linkara: Oh, I'm sorry, Critic, the correct answer was "applaud wildly"!NC: Dammit!Linkara: Next question, and this one's for the game! You're the Soviet Union. You're engaged in a Cold War against the United States, and the fear of mutually assured destruction via nuclear weapons is the only thing that keeps you and the US from engaging in combat with conventional weapons! Suddenly, Superman comes along and says he's gonna take away all your nuclear weapons! What do you do?NC: Ooh, I know! I know! Applaud wildly!Linkara: That is correct! You won the grand prize, Critic! You get to continue watching this crap!NC: Dammit!
- Then there's his use of the Super Mario Bros. 3 "falling from airship" music to accompany Superman and Nuclear Man falling through the clouds.
- During Superman and Nuclear Man's zero gravity fight-sequence on the Moon, the music recuts to a Standard Snippet of "The Blue Danube" to emphasize the obnoxiously slow battle, while featuring cuts to Linkara nonchalantly flipping through a magazine, the Critic with a depressingly bored look on his face, and finally Linkara playing with his Nintendo DS.
- Any of the movie's lame attempts at comic relief actually do manage to become hilarious in this review. Clark Kent "goofily" working out is perfectly accented by Linkara's "It's time for some COMEDY!...Wasn't there an impending nuclear war?", and the scene where Supes needs to be in two places at once is underscored by "The Entertainer" and topped off with Critic's goofy face and arm motions.
- "OH NO YOU DON'T! You started this review, we're going to finish it!"
Nostalgia Critic: What are we reviewing again?"Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" appears on-screenNostalgia Critic: Aw, fuckdonkeys!
- NC's reaction to Jeremy's voice:
Jeremy: I'll tell you who we should write a letter to that would do some good!NC: Muthafucka!
- This exchange:
NC:"How did you do that with your voice?"Linkara:"Clean throat."
- When Nuclear Man takes Lacy (a Puny Earthling, unlike Superman or Nuclear Man) into space, where she can perfectly breathe...
NC: What?! WHAAAT?!?! You can't! Breath! In space, guys! This is kindergarten science! Kindergarten!
- Tickle Me Amy.
- "Hungry Hungry Hippos! Hungry Hungry Hippos!"
- The NC's impersonation of Tim Curry's bad accent in the film.
"The diamonds are here!""And queer! And not going any-weer!""No, n-(starts retching) Sorry, I'm just vomiting up my tuna sandwich!"
- Likewise, using a Laugh Track whenever Tim Curry speaks in the movie.
- And the line used as The Stinger: STOP! EA-ting my SESAME! CAKE!
- Critic's implied responses of the gorillas when Amy spoke through the translator:
Three Wild Gorillas: (Beat) (deadpan) Whatever.First Gorilla: That was strange.Second Gorilla: What the hell was she talking about?Third Gorilla: Weird Power Glove wearing freak.
- "My accent just orgasms at it!"
- The awesome parody of the opening from The Lion King:
Nyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! This movie sucks! You should get a refund! Go see Toy Story next time. It's in the theater next door.
- The Critic's response to the scene in which Bruce Campbell gets a bloody eyeball thrown at him.
Critic: C'mon, Jeffrey, stop throwing your eyeballs at me. *beat* WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
- The climax of the movie: "Hey, look, a pool!" "Let's jump in!"
Siskel & Ebert Tribute
- From his tribute to Siskel And Ebert-"Why would you think that?"
- "So, besides me, what do you think of when you hear the word critic. (Image of The Angry Video Game Nerd shows up) "NO! Get him off-screen!"
- The third answer to that question, which makes him stare at the viewer with an expression of "What the hell is wrong with you?"
- Blink and you'll miss it, but the list of religion's he's prejiduced against include "Whatever religion the Oompa Loompas practice."
- Ma-Ti at the hospital. That is all.
NC: So hey, why are you in the hospital, anyway?Ma-Ti: I'm removing my balls. I am now a literal pussy!NC: Oh, it's not like—
"Did you kill the hooker?""No, I thought you killed her.""I didn't kill her, I thought it was your job to kill her.""It was your job to kill her, remember?""Well, we better change our identities."
- When the Critic Imagines what they're arguing about during the opening scene:
- "So, besides me, what do you think of when you hear the word critic. (Image of The Angry Video Game Nerd shows up) "NO! Get him off-screen!"
- The text scroll read by James Earl Jones
NC: James Earl Jones is talking about an elite FORCE huh?... Okay lets look through the Star Wars jokes here. (plays a Darth Vader quote)
- "And now, since I'm unbelievably immature, the Judge Dredd Blow Dance."
- The multi-function gun. "Armor piercing. Rapid fire. Back massage. Lounge music (Music plays)."
- "Well, I can't turn back now, that was way too good of an exit. ... I guess I'll just stay here for a while. ... Damn it, I forgot my iPod. ... 100 bottles of beer on the wall, 100 bottles of beer..."
- Two bottles o' beer on the wall, two bottles o'... Oh hey Dredd got any beer?
- Judge Judy, the most feared of all.
- The NC pointing out how no one can seem to pronounce
the lawThe LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW!
- Which accumulates to the point where the NC sings the word
lawLAAAAAAAAAAAW over and over again to the tune of the Can-Can. Complete with Judge Dredd kick-line.
- Judge Dredd: The Musical.
- The metaphorical-turned-literal Cat Fight.
- Which accumulates to the point where the NC sings the word
- "I'm alive! Oh, so are you." (cue Seinfeld music)
- The whole damn thing becomes Hilarious in Hindsight after ToBoldlyFlee.
- "O-okay, this movie just went up a notch. Or... at least... SOMETHING went up a notch."
- The Critic's reaction to Tank Girl and her boyfriend's odd little foreplay/strip search session at the beginning:
Critic: Did I mention a woman directed this?(Tank Girl's boyfriend continues stripping)Critic: (unnerved) ...A woman who hopefully wasn't horny as hell?(TG's boyfriend begins to take his pants off)Critic: (panicked) A woman who hopefully hates looking at a naked male body as much as I do?!
- "NOOO!!! NOT THE YAK!!! IT WAS MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER!!!" *cue Yakkity Yak*
- Also this:
Tank Girl's Producer: Alright Ice-T, I know you got a lot of projects in the works, but just listen to this movie role.Ice-T: Yeah, okay.Producer: *Long pause* ...You're a kangaroo—Ice-T: FUCK YEAH!!!
- "NOW BRING ME MORE THINGS TO SMASH!!!" *throws glass on the floor*
- "AQUAFINA IS PEEEEEEOPLE!!"
- "Ohhh, my Clockwork Oranges!"
- "Happy Happy, Joy Joy! Happy Happy, Joy Joy!"
- Mocking Tank Girl's blatant showmanship:
(Tank Girl balances on a tank's cannon while being fired at by the enemy)Critic: (as Tank Girl) I WANT ATTENTION!
- This bit:
Villain with bad elocution: —and (so on)!NC: "And Sauron??"Eye of Sauron: Nobody owns me, biatch.
- His expressions of revulsion at the horrible music number.
- Culimating in a "Big-Lipped Starving Children Moment".
- "Ha ha! Baywatch! It's funny because it existed!"
- "Jinkies, motherfucker !"
- The "Drowning Girl Cam" when Tank Girl wastes time taunting the villain instead of going to save the little girl.
- At the beginning we get this.
"Hello I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it...breaks down crying"...but I don't want to!"
- The Critic's reaction to Rebecca's joking about Parental Incest
Rebecca: You just gottaÖthink about it likeÖthe first time you got laid. You just gotta go, "DaddyÖare you sure this is right?"
- "Oh, I guess we're in the promo for the Saturday morning cartoon now." "Why does this look like Andy Warhol's spit-up?"
- The "hard rock" version of I'm a Little Teapot.
- NC editing a scene into the mother telling Jack all the affairs she had, complete with scare chord.
- "I'm the Nostalgia Christmas. I Christmas so Christmas Christmas. *beat* CHRISTMAS!!!"
- After Jack dies in a car accident and the screen smashes to black, the scene then switches to one year later at his son's school. The NC is not happy with this sudden transition.
"Good Lord, that was terrible! What, are they trying to brush off death like one of those old awkward Disney films?(Jack's car accident scene is repeated, then cuts to "Spring Song" from Bambi)
- His reaction to the snowman. Take your pick.
"I think I'm gonna hurl!""It doesn't look so much like it wants to play with Charlie as friggin' eat him!""Can we keep the creepy snowman out of our faces?" (Jack exits frame) "Good, that—" (Jack suddenly enters back into frame) "OH, GOD! Take it away!!"
- After Jack Frost rejects the idea of using two snowballs as breasts, and throws them back at the kid who threw them:
Critic: Wow, I didn't think anything could top DuckTits, but that came pretty damn close.
- This bit:
Jack Frost: You know, the nice thing about having these big balls, excuse me...Critic: Oh, good to know you're still a perv.
- The Critic saying snowman Jack standing still looks like he's trying to take a dump.
- "I mean, we're, like, 35 minutes in, and I haven't seen one wink of Frosty T. Blowman!"
He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special
- "My god, those TRANSFORMING robots are TRANSFORMING into some kind of TRANSFORMED evil! I think they're called ÖÖCare Bears!"
- The NC's surprise over how Swift Wind sounds.
I mean, what girl wants to hear their unicorn say: "C'mon She-Ra! Let's go fight some evil doers! Maybe we can stop by the cigar store on the way there!"?
- "Yeah, maybe you could find a cell phone...maybe call someone who can come up here and rescue us. Oh, by the way....WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU!?"
- The "Gay Jokes I Could Have Made" counter
- He breaks his moratorium on gay jokes briefly to point out how phallic one of the vehicles looks, wondering how it could possibly have been accidental. This is followed shortly by a giant metal hand grasping it. Tightly.
- Him imitating Orko during the end of the special.
- "Christmas time?! I'm JEWISH! I get eight candles, a dreidle and a new pair of slacks every year, I'll be as fucking grouchy as I please, you little Hitler Youths!"
- The Critic pointing out that no one seems to notice or care about the Transformation Sequence.
He-Man: Hey sis. I have the power.[...]Critic: I love how the transformations aren't a big deal anymore. She could be doing the dishes, and be like "Oh hey, He-Man, when you get a chance could you-"
He-Man: Offscreen*"I HAVE THE POWER!"
Critic: [simultaneously] "-Oh, okay nevermind."
- "Who are your friends? I'm the gay son of Casey Kasem and Jerry Seinfeld. Nyeaaah."
- The Critic misconstruing Hordak's name

- "*imitating Swift Wind* "OH, GOD! Every time this happens, I feel unbelievable pain! God, I hate sprouting these wings! Aaaaah, sweet Jesus, it hurts!"
- Bo being frozen with the "I WAS FROZEN TODAY" sound clip
- "Dude you shot him in the Skelenads!"
Hordak: Time to take this goodie goods.Rob as Skeletor: You just shot my goodie goods.
She-Ra: The beast-monster!Critic: Isn't that a little redundant? I mean, isn't that kind of like saying "Look out! The tortoise-turtle! He's evil-bad!"
- The Critic projectile vomiting into a paper bag at the sound of the kids' Christmas song.
- When wondering why Skeletor added a coat-creating device on his magic wand, he imitates a conversation between Skeletor and another guy :
Critic!Skeletor: My wand can do anything ! It can kill people, destroy cities, and make fashionable fur coats !Other Guy: But why ?Critic!Skeletor: Why ? Why ?! What if it gets cold ?! People need to keep their body heat at a neutral level ! It also makes the little umbrellas that you put at the top of drinks !Other Guy: But why does it do that ?Critic!Skeletor: Have you ever had a Pina Colada without one of those little umbrellas on top ? It's depressing ! Nobody should be subjected to that kind of evil !Other Guy: Oh.Critic!Skeletor: I am Skeletor !
- "What do you want, a cookie?" It's just the way he says it and the scene that came before the line that just cracks me up.
The Top 11 Next Best Christmas Specials
- Two words: Die Hard.
- More specifically, five words; "Fuck you, it's Die Hard!"
