- This one:
Kaiba: I'm here for your Blue Eyes, old man, and I won't take no for an answer. Now give it to me.Yugi's Grandpa: No.Kaiba: (in a bland, monotone voice) Curses. Foiled again.
- Then later:
Grandpa: That Kaiba kid needs to get laid.Tristan: Big time.
Kaiba: (over the phone) I kidnapped your grandpa, Yugi, and then I dueled him into submission. So could you get over here and call an ambulance for him? I have far too much money to be expected to do it myself.Yugi: Wait, who is this?
- The Take That! to the original anime version:
Grandpa: For some reason, playing a card game has somehow caused me to become severely injured!
- And also:
Joey (after Kaiba ripped Grandpa's Blue Eyes White Dragon) What the heck did you do that for?Kaiba: So that it could never be used against me.Yugi: In that case, why not just tear up every card in the whole world?!Kaiba: Shut up and duel me!
- This bit of gold.
Téa: Gather round everyone, and I'll mark us with a special sign! (Draws a smiley face on their hands)Joey: Hey, Téa, not for nothing, but ain't this permanent marker?Téa: Oh...whoops...Joey: What the heck? What were you carrying that thing around for anyway?Téa: I'm a kleptomaniac, I stole it from school.Tristan: Hey, my wallet's missing!Téa: Kaibatookit!
- The birth of Screw the Rules, I Have Money!
- And finally:
Yami: Kaiba, if you truly want to know, then TALK TO THE HAND!!! (mind crush)
Episode 2 - Rocky VII
- "You bastard! You turned him into a mime!"
- This dialogue just as the tape is inserted.
Grandpa: I just hope this isn't one of those cursed videotapes that are all the rage these days...Pegasus: (on videotape) Seven daaaays.Grandpa: Oh snap, I knew it!
- Yugi looking through Joey's cards, realizing that they're much stronger than his, so he decides to steal them and says to Joey he will 'improve' it. Made even funnier when he dueled Pegasus.
Yugi: I'll beat you with the cards I took from — I mean the cards that Joey gave me.
- Joey learns that he needs to become a better duelist. How does he learn that lesson? From Tristan singing the Barney & Friends theme song.
- "Oh, Black Luster Soldier, no one must ever know of our forbidden love."
- Rex and Weevil's Beavis And Butthead-esque exchanges:
Rex: Hey, Weevil, check it out; my dinosaur's horny. Huhuh. Geddit?
- "Let's see how your Grandpa manages... without his soul!" To a non-Yu-Gi-Oh! fan, that's so out of nowhere, and the delivery is perfect.
Yugi: Grandpa... Grandpa!Joey: Hey Yug, down in front!Tristan: Yeah, we were watching that!
Episode 3 - My Cards Will Go On
- Yugi asks Joey if he remembers how they became friends, but Joey only seems to remember the part where he and Tristan were bullying Yugi.
Flashback Joey and Tristan: TORRRRRRRRMEEEEEEEEEEENT!
- "Remind me why we're friends again".
- Joey tells Yugi and the rest of the gang that his parents got divorced... because apparently, he tried teaching his sister Serenity how to drive.
Serenity: (Crying inside a car) Joey! Stop this crazy thing!Joey: (Chasing after Serenity) Apply the handbrake, ya dumb broad!
- "You're here, there's noooothing I fear..."
- Joey: "Must.. risk.. life.. for cards!"
- And the birth of a Running Gag—"In a few hours, the sun will rise!"
- Coupled with a "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer, since the line was actually used in the show itself.
- Joey almost ends up getting kicked off of the cruise because his hair wasn't crazy enough.
- How does he get permission to stay on the cruise? Yugi's hair is ridiculous enough for both of them.
Episode 4 - Lord of the Cards
- When Tristan was freaking out about evil rings and hobbits, Téa points out why any of those things would be on the island. Cue shot of Bakura's Millennium ring and little "hobbit" Yugi.
- The Kill Bill montage, when Joey asks Yugi if he forgave him for stealing a part of his puzzle.
Yugi: (with a subtle hint of suppressed anger) Sure, Joey, sure. *cue ironside theme*
- "Now quiver in fear, as my knight's mighty lance penetrates your moist cocoon!"
- "What are you, a virgin or something?"
- Weevil turning into Cornholilo.
Episode 5 - My Funny Skankentine
- The "ad" at the beginning:
Yami: Yu-Gi-Oh is sponsored by Yugios. They're Yugilicious. Wait a minute, "Yugilicious?" Is that even a word?
Yugi: It lets the kids know that they're tasty!
Yami: Yes, but "Yugilicious"? Are they supposed to taste like Yugi, or something?
Yami: How exactly do you go about testing something like that? I mean... besides the... obvious method...
Yugi: Just. Say. The line. You amateur-
Yami: Fine. Yugios: apparently, they're Yugilicious. Okay, now where's my *BEEP*ing paycheck?
- "Hooray, for censorship!" *Cue 4kids logo*
- "Don't let her boobies distract you, Joey."
Episode 6 - Everybody Hates Mako
- The entire teaser with Mako:
Yugi: D-did you just throw a harpoon at me?Mako: Um, I didn't want you to leave. A-and I wasn't sure how else to get your attention.Yugi: Just ask! Just say "Hey Yugi, could you stay a little longer?" Don't lob a freaking harpoon at me! Seriously! That's like the rudest
thing everFing Evah!
Joey: Get bent, you freaky fish guy!Mako: I am not a freaky fish guy!Yugi, Joey, and Tristan: (sing-song) Mako's a freaky fish guy!
- And soon after that:
- Mokuba, (Seto's kid brother) has just stolen Yami/Yugi's star chips.
Mokuba: Stealing makes everything better.
Yami: Wait Mokuba! You mustn't do this thing! Think! What would your brother say if he saw you right now?
Seto: (in Mokuba's imagination): Well done, Mokuba! Now steal something from Joey, too!
Yami: Okay, but what would he say if he wasn't a complete douchebag?
- The scene where Kaiba is working on his "new hologram doohickeys":
Henchman: (to Kaiba) Don't move a muscle or we'll shoot you with our invisible guns.Kaiba: (jumps out window) I'm too rich to die!Henchman: (looks out window) There's no way he could have survived that fall.Kaiba: (from down the cliff) Actually, I seem to be OK.Henchman: Nope, he's definitely dead.Kaiba: You guys are idiots!Henchman: (answering back) At least we're not dead. Like you.
- Comparing defining traits;
Tristan: My voice gives me super strength!Kemo: Yes, but my hair gives me the power to defy gravity!
- In a flashback, Mokuba is talking to Seto:
Mokuba: Seto! What's wrong?Seto: (shows suppressed anger) They wrote my character out of the show, Mokuba.Mokuba: No way! But you're Yugi's arch-rival!Seto: And I haven't been in a single episode since he defeated me. Since he's the star, he thinks he can hog all the screen time for himself. I mean, just look at Bakura.
Mokuba: Who the hell is Bakura?
Seto: Precisely. Now, I'm going to hide in some undisclosed location. You stay here and guard my multimillion-dollar company while I'm gone. Kay, thanks.
Mokuba: But, Seto! What if an evil group tries to take over while you're missing?
Seto: Oh, come on, Mokuba. What are the odds of that happening?
(cut to scene of Pegasus)
Pegasus: So, let me get this straight, gentlemen. Now that Kaiba boy has gone missing, your evil group wishes to seize control of his company?
Group of men: That is correct.
Mokuba: I f**king knew it!
- The ending:
Ghost Kaiba: This time Yugi, you don't stand a ghost of a chance...Tristan: Oh no! He has even less personality than before!
Episode 7 - Cliffhanger
- The ENTIRE opening:
Yami: (narrating) Previously on Yu-Gi-Oh!...
(cut to Yugi and Téa)Téa: Yugi, I think I'm pregnant, and Yami's the father.
(cut to Joey on the phone with Tristan)Joey: Tristan! Don't leave me!Tristan: I'm sorry, Joey. It's just not working out between us.Joey: BUT I LOVE YOU!
(cut to Yugi and Téa again)Téa: Yugi, I think I'm pregnant, and Weevle's the father.
(cut to a panicked Yugi)Yugi: Grandpa! So you're the one who shot Tristan!
(cut to a frustrated Grandpa)Grandpa: Yes, it was I!
(cut to Yugi and Téa yet again)Téa: Yugi, I think I'm pregnant, and Bakura's the—Yugi: No *BEEP*ing way!Téa: Okay, I lied about that one.
(cut to Seto Kaiba's "ghost")Ghost Kaiba: This time Yugi, you don't stand a ghost of a chance.
(cut to Tristan and Yugi)Tristan: Yugi, I think I'm pregnant! And you're the father!Yami: (narrating) And now the thrilling conclusion! Wait a minute, did any of that stuff actually happen?
- Yami duels who is apparently the ghost of Seto Kaiba. Yami is unconvinced that he's a ghost the entire time they duel:
Yami: Does anyone believe for even one second that this guy is a ghost?Tristan: I do!Yami: Anyone besides Tristan?(pause)Tristan: I do!
Yami: If you're a ghost then I'm straight.
- Not shortly after:
- When the "ghost" reveals his true form... which is a gay clown:
Yami: Aha! See? You're not a ghost at all! You're some kind of... gay clown, apparently.Téa: (frightened) Ew, it's slightly more repulsive than regular clowns.Gay Clown: Actually, I'm not a clown. I'm Seto Kaiba's evil side brought back from the Shadow Realm by Pegasus-Yami: That's even less believable than the whole ghost story! You don't even know what you are, do you?Gay Clown: (nervously) No...Yami: Didn't think so. MIND CRUSH!
(cut to the Gay Clown receiving a mind crush and dying from it)Yami: Did I just kill a gay clown?
Tristan: That ghost didn't scare me, even if I did just sh*t my pants!
- And immediately after the above:
- Just Kaiba: The Kaiba Cave, his 1337 h4xxorz 5kI11z, the Blue Screen of Death...
Kaiba: That's because I learned how to hack by watching all episodes of Star Trek.
Episode 8 - The Plot Thinnens
- The beginning where everybody flips out over Tristan's voice suddenly changing (in reference to the original dub where Tristan's voice actor was replaced as of episode 11 [the episode in which episode 8 parodies]).
- Joey says that it's a shame that they let Mokuba get kidnapped again, beofre Yugi reminds him that Mokuba gets kidnapped once week and assumes that he's used to it. Gilligan Cut to Mokuba chained up inside a dark cell, looking incredibly gloomy, and says "It feels like I'm dying inside!"
- Near the end where the gang met up with the (secretly evil) Bakura.
Bakura: This is my favorite card!Bakura: Oops, wrong one!
- Also from Episode 8:
Bakura: There's something else I need to tell you. (Millennium Ring activates, changing from Good!Bakura into Evil!Bakura) You're a bunch of idiots.Yugi: This came completely out of nowhere!Bakura: (traps the others in cards) That's what you get for hogging all of my screen time, you little bitch.
- The ending where the gang are struck with grief over the death of "Tristan's voice", particularly the part where they reenact how it happened:
Joey: Wait! Don't run with those scissors!Tristan's Voice: You're not the boss of me! (smack) Ouch!Joey: (in an extremely deadpan tone) Oh no, he's dead.
- Tristan has run off on Joey's duel, but returns:
Tristan: Hey, Joey! I'm back to watch your card game!Joey: Hey Tristan! I don't care!
Episode 9 - El Juegos De Tarjeta
- The entire "Previously, on Yu-Gi-Oh!" opening sequence in the Latin American Spanish dub, complete with terrible subtitles.
"Gah! Growth hormones!"Bakura: (possessing a card) I've taken control of this woman's body in order to save you guys. And I don't mind telling you it feels bloody great!Evil!Bakura: By the gods, that's exactly what I want to look like!
- Made funnier by the fact that, after Abridged!Yami's Running Gag of lavishing praise to how sexy his voice is, many commenters said that they actually found Yami' Latin American Spanish voice sexy.
- When Bakura loses:
Bakura: I shall be a main character! Even if it takes me another two hundred bloody episodes.
- The Zorc and Pals opening. "Who's that crazy kook destroyin' the world? It's Zorc—that's me!—it's Zorc and Pals." And the ending: "The blood of the innocent will flow without end, his name is Zorc and he's destroyin' the world." (Just see for yourself!)
- Yugi insisting that Yami telling him how to win isn't cheating. No one buys it, not even Yami himself!
Joey: Hey, big Yugi! Has little Yugi been cheating this whole time?Yami nodsYugi: Oh you guys can all just go straight to Hell!
- "I place Tea in face-down position. I've always wanted to say that."
Episode 10 - Both of You, Duel Like You Want to Win
- The episode cuts to a parody of the Neon Genesis Evangelion opening sequence complete with Gag Subs for the theme song:
"The card game's thesis/will soon be set in defense mode/with surging hot life-points/if you activate a trap card/Embracing the Swords of Revealing Light/young boy, play some card games"
- "I cast Magic Missile at the darkness!"
- Immediately afterwards:
Bakura: I say! That was a superb strategical move at a critical juncture!Joey: Who the hell said you could hang out with us?
- What Joey said about the episode:
Joey: Geez, this is a lousy episode. It reminds me of our spinoff show, Yu-Gi-Oh DMX.(cue Yu-Gi-Oh GX opening with DMX's "X Gonna Give It To Ya")Joey: Honestly, who would want to watch a bunch of rap artists playing card games?Tristan: Hey, I like that show.Joey: Touch me again, Tristan, and you're going home in a body bag.
Yami: Bullying is just wrong. Destroying people's brains with magical powers is A-OK!
- Episode 10 is The One with... New Rules as the Plot Demands.
Yami: With my Catapult Turtle, I can launch my Dragon Champion toward your castle, shattering its flotation ring thereby causing it to collapse on top of your monsters!Bakura: This card game is a load of bollocks!
- Followed immediately by Panik breaking out his flamethrowers to the tune of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire".
- At the end:
Mai: Could I have my star chips back now?Yami: Only if you beg me. C'mon, get on your knees.Mai: You're kidding, right?Yami: Did I stutter or something? Bark like a dog, woman!
Episode 11 - In America
- When Bakura is introduced as a new student from Britain, the students all go, "What's wrong with his voice?" "Is he a girl?" "Go back to Russia!" "I wanna go home..."
Bakura: You blokes are a bunch of wankers.
- When Yugi notes that Bakura's Millennium Ring has begun pointing:
Bakura: Oh, that's just my gaydar. My father had it installed in my Millennium Ring in order to protect me, because I look so bloody effeminate!Yugi: I wonder why it's pointing towards Pegasus' castle...Bakura: Bugger if I know.(cut to Pegasus)Pegasus: This tournament is simply FABULOUS! Ooh! Let's celebrate by watching the Spice Girls movie!Croquet: Oh, not again...
Pegasus: Ooo-oo-ooh! I can sense you, Kaiba boy! And when you get here... I'm going to spice up your life. (Cut to credits as "Wannabe" plays)
- And at the end of the episode:
- When Kaiba recalls the time he dueled against Yugi in episode 1, what he remembers is a little... different:
Kaiba: Screw the rules, I have green hair!
- After that Kaiba claims that he should probably cut down on the drugs.
- After Kaiba defeats Joey:
"You don't know what you're up against. Pegasus is ruthless. Camp... but ruthless!
- In Bakura's Flashback:
Bakura: (voiceover) I was watching you play card games with your mates, when my Millennium Ring started pointing towards your Millennium Puzzle! I can't imagine why.
(cut to Yami inside the Millennium Puzzle)Yami: This Millennium Puzzle is simply FABULOUS!
- At the end of each installment, LK parodies Adult Swim's black screen and bold white text between commercial breaks, and lampshades the similarity.
[i think adult swim is gonna sue somebody]
- This gem from Joey and Kaiba's duel:
Joey: (summons Red-Eyes Black Dragon) So here's this giant enemy dragon!Kaiba: (summons Blue-Eyes White Dragon) Blue Eyes, attack his weak point for massive damage!(voice clip of Kaz Hirai shouting "RIIIIIDGE RACER!" as Joey's Red-Eyes is destroyed)Kaiba: That cost you 599 U.S. Life Points.
- (actual 4Kids dialogue) "Check his pulse, Yugi!"
- "Who would have thought a child could win a children's card game?" The delivery is what makes it absolutely hilarious!
- This is the episode that introduces us to Bandit Keith, "who apparently likes to remind everyone that he's from America".
Bandit Keith: [Pegasus] can't beat me because I'm an American!
- Apparently, ever since the gang got back from the Shadow Realm, Téa has been under the impression that she's a caterpillar.
Téa: Soon I'll be a beautiful butterfly, and then Yugi will love me."
Episode 12 - Duel of the Dead
- Episode 12 has two in one scene: The Katamari Damacy parody, and "My voice gives me Super Strength!"
- *POP* "Holy $^&% it really does!"
- When Bakura gets crushed by a sphere shaped bolder (which was actually a balloon with a speaker inside), "Looks like Bakura's scarred for life again."
Bakura: Tell my fangirls... I love them...
- Thriller. That is all.
- Sid tries to remind Bandit Keith that they're not actually in America. Keith's response?
Keith: Try speaking American, it's the only language I understand.
- The ending:
Sid: They'll never get past this cardboard cutout of a boulder.Keith: Another victory for America.(the gang is attempting to push boulder)Joey: It's no use! It's made of solid cardboard!
- "These sunglasses sure make it difficult to see in the dark. But I refuse to take them off because I'm an American. And Americans ALWAYS wear sunglasses."
- "And now it's time for my favorite Shakespeare quote. Alas, poor Yorick, I knew him. In America."
- He even holds a skull while he says it!
- "Hello, did you enjoy watching me pee?"
- One that becomes hilarious if you compare it with the original dialogue. Original version:
Yugi: It got Bakura!Téa: Oh no!
- Abridged version:
Yugi: It got Bakura!Téa: Good!
- Abridged version:
- Tristan: "Who's smexy now, bitch?"
- Zombie Boy singing the American National Anthem.
Zombie Boy: Braaains, brains brains brains, braaains (subtitles read "Oh say can you see")
Episode 13 - Busted Rhymes
- Kaiba is aware that his brother is being held hostage inside Pegasus' castle, but decides to walk briskly there as he doesn't feel like running. Much like Yugi in episode 8, Kaiba assumes that Mokuba is okay, only for it to cut to him inside a dark prison cell and gloomily says, "I can't feel my legs..."
- About halfway during the duel between the rhyming Paradox Brothers:
Yugi: Hang on a second, are we rhyming too?Joey: Don't ask me, I ain't got a clue.Yugi: This is like something out of Dr. Seuss.Téa: I can't stop staring at Yugi's caboose.Bakura: Everyone seems to have gone all rhymey.Tristan: Shut the hell up, you stupid limey!
- This gem of a Double Entendre conversation after Yugi's Beaver Warrior is destroyed:
Joey: Let this be a lesson to ya Yug. Never, under any circumstances, leave your beaver exposed.Yugi: You're right Joey. My beaver was on full display. Next time I'll take better care of my beaver.Téa: I didn't know Yugi had a beaver.
Kaiba: Shut up Mokuba. Mommy and Daddy are talking.
- And also:
Pegasus: I turned Mokuba into a monster card. And he doesn't have any attack or defense points.Kaiba: You sick bastard! That makes him even more worthless than Kuriboh!
- The Paradox Brothers' famous spinning martial arts entrance... to the tune of YMCA.
Bakura: Oh my, I wonder if those are the gay people?
- And this Curse Cut Short:
Para: It appears that we have run out of luck!Dox: It's just a card game! Who gives a fu-
- Even more rhyme;
Para: We are villains who like to rhyme.Dox: In fact we do it all the time.Para: You may think it's rather crass.Dox: But you can stick your cards right up your nose.Para: You were supposed to say 'ass', brother. I thought we rehearsed this.
- The Mystic Box scene:
Soundtrack: Everyone loves Magical Trevor cause the tricks that he does are ever so clever...
Para: You have tricked us with your magic box!
Dox: We invite you to suck on our c-
Bakura: Cor blimey, that was a smashing maneuver! Good show, chaps!
Tristan: Stop being so British!
- Para and Dox summon their Gate Guardian:
Para: Against our Gate Guardian, you stand no chance.Para: Is that true brother, or are you just rhyming?Dox: I didn't want to throw off our timing. (Beat) But it is true.
Episode 14 - When Yami Met Sally
- The whole flashback of Téa recalling the "4Kids version" of how she and Yugi met
Mugger: Just hand over all your money girly!Téa: Screw you man, I ain't paying for lessons!
- It gets even more amusing when Téa arrives at a secret dance studio (which appeared to be some sort of warehouse) and when a man shows up to mug her, she asks if he was her dance instructor.
- "I'm here for my ballet classes. I should warn you, I look damn good in a tutu!" What has been thought can't be unthought.
- After Téa's flashback—
Téa: And then we got married and had two beautiful children.Yugi: I'm pretty sure I don't remember that. Hey, Téa, do you still have that waitress uniform—?Tristan: Hey! Stop developing your characters, we've got card games to play!
- The montage of Mokuba getting kidnapped, with captions actually listing the kidnappings. Apparently, by that point, he has been kidnapped a total of 2,042 times.
Kaiba: Uhm... Perhaps I should consider getting him on a leash.
- Yugi's friends always support him:
Joey: Don't worry Yug, we'll be supporting ya all the way!Tristan: Ten bucks on Kaiba!Tea: Fifty bucks on Kaiba!Bakura: A hudred quid on Kaiba!
- After Kaiba used Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon:
Yami: Oh, poopie!Joey: Get up on the hydra's back, Yug!
- Pretty much the entirety of Kaiba's duel with Yami:
Yami: Yeah, well at least I'm not adopted!Kaiba: ...what did you just say?Yami: Sorry, did I touch a nerve? Why don't you run home and cry to mummy? Oh, that's right! You don't have one!Kaiba: Yugi! I respect you as a duelist, but if you continue to act like a petulant child, then—Yami: Hey, everyone! Look at me! I'm Seto Kaiba! I have a dragon fetish and I sound like Brock from Pokemon! Screw the rules, I'm in love with Nurse Joy!"Kaiba: That's it, Muto, you're (bleep)ing dead!
- And when Yami uses a card to create an army of Kuribohs:
Yami: I activate Asexual Reproduction! Prepare to be completely smothered by my giant hairy balls!
Kaiba: How the hell did you do that?Yami: It's called cheating. Deal with it!
- When Kaiba threatens to kill himself:
Yami: Dude, don't you think you're overreacting a little? I mean, it's just a card game.Kaiba: (about to jump off a castle battlement) Card games are Serious Business!
- The following:
Joey: This is awesome! Yugi's gonna kill Kaiba!Tristan: I've always dreamed this moment would come!

- Poor Mai.
Téa: Look! It's Skankety Slut-Slut!
- Star Wars opening with "Card Games" replacing the title.
Mai: Pegasus' castle. You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.Kemo: Attention duelists! You are not duelists! May I please see your identification?Téa: Me love you long time?Mai: You don't need to see their identification.Kemo: I don't need to see your identification.Mai: These are not the breasts you're looking for.Kemo: These are not the breasts I'm looking for.Mai: Move along.Kemo: My hair is in love!Mai: (smacking him with her purse) Rejected!Kemo: WAIT! My hair wants to marry you (runs into the door) OW! My hair!
- And while on the Star Wars subject, Mai channeling Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Episode 16 - Fanservice
- Pegasus and his hooded cultists chanting "Hooked on a Feeling".
- Bandit Keith jumping on the "Fanservice!" wagon.
Bandit Keith: Now, time for a little Bandit Keith fanservice! In America!
- He's single, ladies!
- (Arrow points to Bakura staring blankly whilst Téa and Tristan talk): Bored out of his mind.
- Tristan finds a rope:
Tristan: Hey look, a rope! We can hang Bakura with this! Then he'll be the dead body!Bakura: That never happened in the Goonies!Tristan: Well it should have!
- The line "This room is for main characters only!"
- This exchange:
Yugi: Gramps, are you okay?Grandpa: Of course I'm not okay! You put me in a home!Yugi: What? No I didn't.Grandpa: Yes you did! You couldn't stand the sight of me anymore, so you had me sent away! I swear, kids these days! They have no respect for their elders!Yugi: Grandpa, you're not in a home. You've been kidnapped.Grandpa: What?Yugi: Pegasus put your soul into a card, and now he's forcing me to duel him in a tournament to rescue you.Grandpa: What?Yugi: Grandpa, is your hearing aid switched on?Grandpa: What? Just a second, I think my hearing aid isn't switched on.Yugi: Urg! (punches ground) And now my hand is broken.
- The last scene:
Bakura: Now it's time for some Bakura fanservice! (screen goes black) Oh bugger! It's the credits!
Episode 17 - We Interrupt This Broadcast
- During Mai and Yami's duel, with the announcer listing off Mai's "victories":
Announcer: Mai Valentine is a seasoned competitor with a long list of victories. Let's take a look at her dueling history. First she faced Joey Wheeler... And lost. Then she went up against Panik... And lost. Her last match before entering the finals was against Téa Gardner, which, of course, she must have won... Oh, my mistake, she surrendered. I think I speak for everyone when I ask: What's wrong with this picture?
- Yugi and Joey's duel is brilliant:
Joey: This is it, Yug. Only one of us can win this tournament. And even though you're my best friend, I'm not gonna hold back. I'm gonna give it my all. And what's more, I'm gonna beat you!Ýami: Like hell!Joey: Nyeh?Ýami: Face it, Joey, you're a terrible duelist! You only got this far because I've been telling you how to win all the time! I mean, come on, you've got Baby Dragon in your deck. Baby freaking Dragon! You probably don't even remember why you entered the tournament in the first place!Joey: Sure I do! I entered because... eh... you told me to?Yami: It was your sister, you silly little man! She needs an operation!Joey: Why, is she sick?Yami: No, but you will be. Mind Crush!Joey: Nyeh!
- Joey and Keith's duel with each other.
Keith: Hey, that's my joke! It only works when I say "In America"! It loses all meaning when you say it.Joey: Nyeh? What's that? I couldn't hear you. I was too busy being American.Joey: You're right, I must've left it back home... (Beat) In America!
(cut to Bandit Keith being hauled away by Pegasus' guards while angrily singing the Star Spangled Banner)Announcer: Uh oh, looks like Bandit Keith has snapped, and he's being forced to abandon the duel.
- And then after Bandit Keith's loss, he challenges Pegasus:
Bandit Keith: Pegasus, I pledge allegiance to your death! You sorry excuse for an American!Bandit Keith: (falling off cliff) AHHHHHHHHHHHH.........in America! (splash)
- Next week, on a Very Special Episode of Zorc and Pals:
Yami Bakura: Zorc, what's wrong? Why haven't you destroyed the world?Zorc: Because I have a terminal disease!Yami Bakura: But you can't die! What about our adopted daughter? Who's going to take care of her when you're gone?Zorc: She also has a terminal disease!
Episode 18 - Turn Around, Bright Eyes
- Yugi's grandpa on playing card games:
Yugi's Grandpa: Playing card games is like making love; you usually do it on a table, and you always feel deep shame when it's finished. Also, the older you get, the less fun it is. So remember, always wear a condom when playing card games.
- Tea thinks something interesting is happening:
Yami: Blah, blah, card games, blah!Pegasus: Blah, blah, blah, attack mode, blah.Yami: Blah, blah, blah?!Pegasus: Blaaaaaah...Tea: Oops, my mistake.
- When the guards surround Tristan with Mokuba's unconscious body on his back:
Guard #1: We got you surrounded, now give the boy to us!Tristan: Over Mokuba's dead body!
- How Yami defeats Pegasus:
Yami: I summon LittleKuriboh impostors!Pegasus: No! There are so many of them! I can't tell which one is the original!Yami: Which means you'll never be able to watch the abridged series ever again!Yami: Don't worry, Pegasus, there's always Naruto: The Abridged Series. But as everyone knows, that's just not quite as good!Pegasus: Oh, NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
- When Yugi and Yami discuss that they should switch minds in order to prevent Pegasus from predicting their strategies, Yami tries to come up with a different solution:
Yami: Couldn't I just Mind Crush him?Yugi: You can't fix all your problems by Mind Crushing people!Yami: Oh, come on, just one little Mind Crush, it'll barely hurt him.Yugi: No! Bad Pharaoh! No Mind Crush!
- Yugi's life force gets drained away as his body wasn't strong enough to survive in the Shadow Realm, and when he finally passes out, Yami claims that Yugi couldn't be dead because otherwise 4Kids would've censored it.
Téa: HOLY CRAP!Joey: Nyeh!Tristan: I'm hungry!
- The somberness of Yugi's "death" immediately gets ruined when the scene cuts back to Téa, Joey, and Tristan:
- "It's like something out of HP Lovecraft, only gay!"
- "My voice knows kung-fu!"
- Tristan sneaking around the castle in a suit of armor:
Guard: (clanking sound is heard) Did I hear something just now? Nah, must have been the wind. (clanking sound gets louder) Yeah, that's definitely the sound that wind makes.
- Tristan thinks that Bakura is Spider-Man when he traps a couple of Pegasus' guards using a Chain Energy Card, and Bakura (reluctantly) says he is just so he doesn't have to put up with Tristan's whining.
- As Yugi/Yami's duel with Pegasus intenses, so do their friends:
Téa: My nipples sense Yugi is in great peril!Joey: Mine too!

Tristan: He died as he lived: draped in the arms of another man.
- The flashback that details Pegasus' life with Cecelia:
Pegasus: We fell in love instantly and decided to get married. Then when we were standing at the altar, something very unexpected happened: You exploded... Yeah, that was kinda weird.
Pegasus: At long last I was reunited with you, my love. I thought my dreams had finally come true. But then you exploded again. You really need to stop doing that.
- And at the end of said flashback...
- When Téa finishes reading Pegasus' blog:
Téa: Man I've read fanfiction that made more sense than this crap!

See how this card barely resembles these ancient hieroglyphs!Grandpa: My God, you're right! This could revolutionize the field of Egyptology... somehow.Grandpa: (voiceover) Just then, the tomb collapsed around us. We had been trapped inside a cold and desolate place far from human contact, but since we were both very old, we were used to that sort of thing.Arthur: I say Solomon, let's have a card game to decide which one of us gets to live.Grandpa: That's the sickest thing I've ever heard of. Let's do it!
