-->-- ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell Season 2, Episode 8]]

A subversion of the CatchPhrase or OneLiner where another character interrupts the expected line, usually with something disparaging.

Usually takes advantage of the DramaticPause in the middle of the CatchPhrase. Also a sure sign that the once cherished phrase is now at risk of [[OverusedRunningGag gettin' old]].

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/AngelBeats'': Takeyama's catchphrase ("Call me Christ") became more and more prone to interruptions as the episodes go.
* In later seasons of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', it became increasingly common for someone to interrupt Team Rocket in the middle of their super-long CatchPhrase.
** Latter seasons? It started already in the latter part of the original series, but then reverted to the status quo after each Theme song change.
** As spoofed [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=258 here]] in ''Webcomic/VGCats''.
** Though Ash actually ''attempts'' to do this as early as the fourth episode, only to be met with "Nobody interrupts the Team Rocket motto!" and then they finish it.
*** Team Rocket still gets annoyed if they're not allowed to finish the motto, though even they apparently clued in on how old it was getting to an extent, since they've gone through a couple of new (still long) replacement mottos.
*** During the Sinnoh arc, they would get interrupted by Barry ''every'' time he appeared.
** In one instance, they're about to deliver their motto when they find "the twerps" in Team Rocket outfits, who then declare it to them. Jessie is ''furious''.
** Cilan's "Tasting Time~!" is interrupted midway by [[spoiler:Stephan (who proceeds to defeat him)]] when they battle each other in the Donamite.
** The banned episode [[Recap/PokemonS1E35TheLegendOfDratini The Legend of Dratini]] has Kaiser, the Safari Zone warden, stop the Team Rocket motto by shooting at them.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has a somber and poignant version of this: The last time anyone says "Who the hell do you think I am", the speaker [[spoiler:now aged Simon]], cuts ''himself'' off because the listener isn't paying attention, so he decides to say that he's no one.
* In the ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' light novels, Xelloss's last appearance ends with him storming off in a huff after Gourry pre-empts his catchphrase.
--> '''Xelloss''': Now, I owe you nothing. So with regards to what we were discussing...
--> '''Gourry''': It's a secret, isn't it?
--> '''Xelloss''': Gourry-san, you spoiled everything!
* In episode 5 of ''Anime/TigerAndBunny,'' Blue Rose's catchphrase "My ice may be a little cold, but your crime has been put on hold!" is interrupted, much to her dismay.
* From the ''Anime/{{Wolverine}}'' anime: "I'm the best there is at what I do. And what I do isn't very ''niiiiii-''"

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In ''ComicBook/TomStrong'', Timmy Turbo's catchphrase, "Holy socks!", which precedes nearly every sentence he says, grates so much on his friends that, well...
--> Holy so- hey, I wasn't really going to say it, guys, I- ow...
* ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' - Raven is chanting her mantra while battling Dr. Light, but Light blasts her before she can finish.
--> Bit of advice. Find shorter magic words.
** Of course, it turns out she doesn't need to say them to do magic but to maintain control of herself, as he finds out to his misfortune.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
** In episode 26, Seto Kaiba commits CatchphraseInterruptus on himself, cutting off Yami's "did you just summon a bunch of monsters in one turn?" before he can actually finish the straight line.
** This happened to Bandit Keith's "In America" as well.
--->'''Joey:''' Let me guess... "In America".\\
'''Bandit Keith:''' I wasn't going to say that! ''[{{beat}}]'' In America.
* ''WebVideo/JojosBizarreAdventureAbridged'': Oh let me guess, "the only way to open a casket is to burn it"?]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Ironically, the one time Captain Jack Sparrow in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'' manages to finish his catchphrase, "This is the day you will always remember as the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow", he is actually caught.
-->'''Norrington:''' [[IronicEcho Well, I trust it you will always remember this as the day that Captain Jack Sparrow almost escaped.]] Take him away.
* In ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', Nightcrawler repeatedly tries to introduce himself to people by saying "My name is Kurt Wagner, but in the Munich Circus I was known as the Incredible Nightcrawler", but always gets cut off before he can finish.
* Creator/KevinSmith's ''Franchise/{{Superman}} Lives'' script had the phrase "This looks like a job for Superman!" said twice (once by Lois attempting a BorrowedCatchPhrase), and both times it was interrupted before Superman's name could be said.
* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', Alexander can't stand the catchphrase of his character ("By Grabthar's Hammer!") and interrupts another character quoting it.

--> '''Atlas:''' At the count of three, close your eyes and tell me what you see. One. Two. - ''(screen turns black and credits roll)''
* ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'':
** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' finds a HYDRA trooper cornered by US soldiers:
--->'''HYDRA Soldier:''' Cut off one head, [[WeAreEverywhere two more shall...]]\\
'''[[ColonelBadass Col. Phillips]]:''' ''[[[ShotgunsAreJustBetter blows him away]]]'' [[BadassBoast Let's go find two more!]]
** ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'':
--->'''Captain America''': {{Avengers|Assemble}}--\\
''[smash to end credits]''
* In ''Film/RogueOne'', K-2SO is cut off by Cassian before he can say [[Franchise/StarWars "I have a bad feeling about this"]].

* ''Literature/TheSilverChair'':
-->"Many have taken ship at the pale beaches," replied the Warden, "and--"\\
"Yes, I know," interrupted Puddleglum. "''And few return to the sunlit lands.'' You needn't say it again. You ''are'' a chap of one idea, aren't you?"
* Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse
** In Creator/TimothyZahn's 2007 novel ''Literature/{{Allegiance}}'' we have [[CrowningMomentOfFunny this exchange]]:
-->'''Random extra:''' ... But I gotta tell you, I've got a bad--\\
'''Han:''' No time for that now.
** Creator/MichaelStackpole pulled the same trick in ''ComicBook/StarWarsUnion''. Mara specifically tells Luke not to finish saying he has a bad feeling.
* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', there's at least one time where Marco cuts off Rachel's traditional "Let's do it!" so he can say it himself. He interrupts her another time to make a bet with Jake as to whether or not she'll say it--she finishes with "Let's go for it!" out of spite.
* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literature/ACivilCampaign'', perpetual PhraseCatcher Ivan "You idiot" Vorpatril manages to pre-empt Miles' traditional greeting.
-->'''Miles:''' Ivan you idi--\\
'''Ivan:''' ''Don't''... say it. I just saved your ass, again. And what thanks do I get, again? None. Nothing but abuse and scorn. My humble lot in life.
* In ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'', Scrooge "tried to say 'Humbug!' but stopped at the first syllable."

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': one of Greg's many transgressions against the QuipToBlack is that he sometimes interrupts Grissom, who owns that riff.
* ''Series/PerfectStrangers'': In early seasons, Larry would announce the ZanyScheme of the week by saying "I have... a plan!" In later seasons, every instance of this {{Catchphrase}} would replace the "..." [[PhraseCatcher with someone else saying "Oh god."]]
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S08E01RevengeOfTheCreature Revenge of the Creature]]''. Upon finding himself in orbit around a [[PlanetOfTheApesEnding Planet of the Apes]], Mike tries to launch into a sequence of Charlton Heston {{Catch Phrase}}s, only to have each one interrupted by Professor Bobo, who's heard it all before. ("Damn us all to hell, yes, yes, I ''know''.") Also happened while they were ''parodying'' a CatchPhrase.
-->'''Tom:''' [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory To infinityyyy...]]\\
'''Crow:''' [[YouWannaGetSued Ahem. Disney? Lawsuit?]]\\
'''Tom:''' ...a-and ''other'' places!
* In later series of ''Series/BlackAdder'', Edmund would frequently anticipate Baldrick's announcement that he had "a cunning plan". Only a CatchphraseInterruptus when he stops Baldrick at "Fear not, my lord", rather than pre-empting the whole phrase.
* In ''Series/BlackBooks'': In 3rd season episode Party, Manny had convinced Bernard to go to a Parteyh.
-->'''Manny:''' Let's paaaar...\\
'''Manny:''' Let's... poooootter along... in order to attend the party!
* Here's an extreme example: in the second season finale of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', Barney starts his CatchPhrase "It's gonna be legen... wait for it..." when the episode ends. It was not until the third season premiere four months later that he got to finish with "..dary!" Also a BrickJoke.
** There was a shorter one earlier on, when Barney fainted from the flu after finishing the first half of his catchphrase, and then waking up at the end of the scene to finish it.
* In the last iteration of the Spanish Inquisition sketch from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', the Cardinal is cut short by the end of the episode, leading the to the phrase "Nobody expects the Spa...oh, bugger".
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** The only time in the entire franchise that the Borg were shown to be easily defeated was in an episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' where they got as far as "{{Resistance Is|Futile}}--" before being blown out of the sky.
** In another episode, B'Elanna interrupts the series-long ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[TheMedic medic]] catchphrase.
--->'''EMH:''' I'm a Doctor--\\
'''B'Elanna:''' Not an engineer, right.
* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'':
** John Belushi once held the show hostage by ''refusing'' to say the Opening CatchPhrase. He had a list of demands.
** SNL also did an show-opener parody of ''Series/AmericanIdol'' and its unfathomable level of {{padding}} in which Jimmy Fallon as Ryan Seacrest kept cutting to commercial, including immediately after returning from commercial ("Welcome back to ''Series/AmericanIdol''. We'll be right back.") and finishing with, "Kimberly, you are... LIVE, FROM NEW YORK... We'll be right back."
** During a time period where SNL was being heavily criticized for being uninspired and lazy, Steve Martin and the cast opened the show with an elaborate musical number about how they were not going to phone it in for once, only to end with Martin booming in grand Broadway fashion, "LIVE FROM NEW YOOOOOOOOOOOORK..." then an awkward pause, then, "...line?"
* ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' has this exchange...
--> '''Uncle Albert''': During the...\\
'''Del Boy''': [interrupts Albert] If you say during the war one more time, I'll pour this cup of tea over your head!\\
'''Uncle Albert''': I wasn't going to say "during the war" actually. You bloody know-it-all!\\
'''Del Boy''': [Backing down] All right.\\
'''Uncle Albert''': During the [[spoiler:1939-1945 conflict with Germany.]]
* Happens all the time to [[TheDragon Tenaya 7]] in ''Series/PowerRangersRPM''. All she wants to do is finish her speech about how she's the doom of mankind once.
* This exchange from ''Series/{{Reba}}'':
-->'''Barbra Jean:''' Yoo hoo! I'm here! And I'm --\\
'''Reba:''' Oh, shut up and grab a doughnut!
* In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', [[TheRival DiEnd]] interrupts his summoned [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Den-O Sword Form's]] "I have arrived!" by shooting him with a Final Form shot, turning him into Momotaros. The first thing Momo does is to start bawling out [=DiEnd=] for cutting him off mid-sentence.
** In the very next episode, [=DiEnd=] performs Decade's usual WorldOfCardboardSpeech. When Tsukasa/Decade says "Quit stepping on my lines!", Daiki/[=DiEnd=] completes the theft: "I was a 'passing-through Kamen Rider' long before you ever were!"
* ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' episode 14 has the team come out of their TransformationSequence with Captain Marvelous ready to fight, starting his catchphrase "Let's make a show of it!", only for it to be interrupted when it turns out the villains escaped during the sequence.
** ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' episode 21 has a more vicious version.
-->'''Daigo''': Hear our roar!
-->'''Debo Meteor''': I'd rather not! (Launches attack)
-->'''Daigo''': The fanged- (Attack hits)
* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS09E02DevilMayCare "Devil May Care" (S09, Ep02)]], Dean punches Crowley in the face after he says, "Hello" and before he is able to say "boys".
* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'''s catchphrase from ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' ("You will rue the day you did that!") only appeared once in ''Frasier'' in "Look Before You Leap", and it got cut off by Niles.
-->'''Frasier:''' No, Niles! You can’t leave me now, I need you more now than ever.
-->'''Niles:''' Oh, give it up. No one who’s followed your little “take a leap” philosophy has ended up even remotely better. I don’t care what you’re saying, I’m going to Maris.
-->'''Frasier:''' You will rue the day- !
-->'''Niles:''' ''(interrupting)'' I don’t care! Niles gotta have it!
* In ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' the Bluth family's has the shared catchphrase "I've made a huge mistake..." But in season 4, as Maeby finds out that she has inadvertently committed statutory rape, this happens:
-->'''Narrator:''' And Maeby was about to realize that she had made a huge mis-\\
'''Maeby:''' ''(unconcerned)'' Nah, I'll be fine!
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In "The Robots of Death", the Fourth Doctor begins his catchphrase of "Hello-o-o, I'm the Doctor. Would you like a jelly ba-" before getting the bag of jelly babies smacked out of his hands by Borg, who is stressed out of his mind. The Doctor is hurt.
--->'''Fourth Doctor:''' A simple "no, thank you" would have been sufficient...
** In "Asylum of the Daleks", one of the Daleks has a speech impediment, causing their familiar cry of "EXTERMINATE" to get shortened to... well...
--->'''Dalek:''' [[AC: Eggs.]]
** In "Kill the Moon", the Twelfth Doctor attempts to say the Second Doctor's catchphrase of "when I say 'run', run..." but is cut off before he can say the final "RUN" by being asked who made ''him'' the boss.
--->'''Twelfth Doctor:''' ''You'' say "run", then!
* Invoked in ''Series/{{Friends}}'' when Joey starts his signature "How you doin'?" on Rachel's sister, but before she can get it out, she cries "Don't!"

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Used with an especially long delay in an episode of ''Wrestling/{{WWERaw}}'': Wrestling/BookerT began to yell his catchphrase, "Now can you dig that... SUCKA!" into Wrestling/{{Christian}}'s face, only for Christian to interrupt by punching Booker, causing a brawl that had to be broken up by officials. Not to be deterred, [[BrickJoke Booker reappeared nearly an hour later to finish]], bellowing "SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" to Christian, in a hilarious moment that must have horribly confused anybody tuning in late.
* Despite his impeccable mic skills, [[Series/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] has had his catchphrases interrupted many a time, usually with the one interrupting to finish saying whatever it is they had to say. Sometimes, they finish The Rock's phrase themselves. This is often played for laughs and usually ends up badly for the interrupter, as '''no one''' interrupts the Great One.
** Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin managed to get one over on The Rock several times in a single promo with The Rock returning the favor. HilarityEnsues.
* The Rock did this to himself while going through a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLFGq-TzleU&index=58&list=PLC7vqXwVsiU-3SS8Fnj89GxyGMxTTH92P list of catchphrases from different WCW wrestlers]] .[[note]]Starts at 5:06[[/note]]—Wrestling/HulkHogan, Wrestling/RicFlair, Wrestling/RandySavage, Wrestling/BretHart—until he finally gets to the [[BadassBoast Most Electrifying Line in Sports Entertainment Today]]: if ya smell what the Rock is cookin’!
* But probably the most famous interruption of The Rock was Wrestling/ChrisJericho's interruption of him on the ''Smackdown'' preceding the 2002 Royal Rumble, after Rocky dismissed his angry ranting and looked forward to Wrestlemania.
-->'''Rock:''' If ya smell--\\
'''Jericho:''' '''''NO!''''' No, no, no, no, [[BigNo NO!]] This is ''not'' a joke! ''I'' am not a joke! And you will not look past me, you stupid son of a bitch!

* Mel Blanc, playing a train conductor on ''Radio/TheJackBennyProgram'', once went into his CatchPhrase, "Train leaving on Track Five for Anaheim, Azusa, and Cuc...", went offstage for a five-minute routine by other members of the show, then [[BrickJoke came back on stage to shout, "amonga!"]]
** The "Train leaving on Track Five for Anaheim Azusa and Cuc" other dialogue [[BrickJoke "amonga!"]] became a RunningGag in its own right.
* On ''Radio/TheGoonShow'', Bluebottle's catchphrase upon entering a scene was always a description of how he enters the scene (e.g., "Bluebottle enters stage left") followed by the phrase "waits for applause, not a sausage". Over time, the character became popular enough that his appearance really *did* result in wild applause, resulting in a gradual transition from: saying the line to laughter; saying the line to applause; saying the line and getting cut off by the applause, then completing it after the applause; saying the line and getting cut off by the applause, followed by some acknowledgement of said applause instead of completing the catchphrase; and abandonment of the catchphrase altogether.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In the very early gameplay demo of ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' in a dialogue between the barbarian hero and Cain, Cain is about to say "stay a while and listen" But before he finishes the word "stay" the barbarian tells him there is no time for idle talk.
--> '''Cain:''' ''[disgruntled]'' No one ever listens.
* A silly variant happens in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass''. Link (being a HeroicMime) does not have a spoken catchphrase, but he does have [[ItemGet that standard animation and tune every time he holds up an important item]], and that's what gets interrupted.
* Throughout ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', Guybrush tries to say, "YouFightLikeACow!", but then gets interrupted. The first time is at the beginning of Chapter 1, when he gets interrupted by Elaine; the second is at the beginning of Chapter 2, when Morgan [[TalkToTheFist cuts off his hand before he can finish]]; and the third is in Chapter 4, when both Guybrush and the human [=LeChuck=] start saying the catchphrase at the same time, but both stop themselves before they can finish, then look at each other and laugh.
* A variation occurs in the beginning of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''. Scorpion isn't ''interrupted'' when using his old '''"Get over here!"''' catchphrase, but it's not as dramatic as he likely intended it; Johnny Cage catches the spear in mid-air and quips, "Damn, I'm good," before plowing into him.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' LOVES this trope...
** Season 8:
--->'''Sarge:''' Agent Washington, you just got-- ''[blows up the barrels next to Washington]'' [[LampshadeHanging God dammit, I messed up my one-liner!]]
** Season 9:
--->'''Washington:''' What the hell? It bounces? [[TakeThat Who designs a gun that bounces?]] This is the worst gun ever. Of all--\\ ''[Carolina tackles him]''
** Season 10: Not really anyone's catchphrase but a symbolic line for the series anyways.
--->'''Mook 1:''' Hey.\\
'''Mook 2:''' Yeah?\\
'''Mook 1:''' You ever wonder why we're-- ''[cue Pelican]''

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Captain Hammer in ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''.
--> "Eeeeeeveryone's a heroooooo in theeeeeeeeeir-" ... gets frozen in time, an entirely different song begins and ends, then gets unfrozen ... "waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay"
* During Riley Mcllwain's first season on ''WebVideo/IsItAGoodIdeaToMicrowaveThis'', he interrupted Jory's catchphrase (Nobody likes roasted nuts) in every single episode for that season.
* From ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'', after setting up the second [[CatchPhrase "behave yourself"]] from the episode:
-->'''Kit:''' Have you ever considered a leotard?\\
'''Red Panda:''' Kit Baxter--\\
'''Kit:''' We've done that bit...

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In the second season of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' Ron uses his "That would be so cool if it wasn't going to hurt us" twice but gets interrupted both times: first by Wade and another time by himself.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] attempts his iconic "YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry" catchphrase, only to stop short when he realizes ComicBook/TheFalcon has drugged him.
* The second and third seasons of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' did this in almost every episode with Kenny's deaths, as Stan and Kyle's collective catchphrase from Season One ("Oh My God, They Killed Kenny!" "You Bastards!") would be subverted in some way (In "Prehistoric Ice Man", Kyle wasn't speaking to Stan and so refused to say his line, and in "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000" it was used flatly after Stan and Kyle were the ones responsible for Kenny's death: "Oh my god, we killed Kenny." "''We'' killed Kenny?" "Yep, we're bastards.").
** Done as early as the first season, such as the episode where Kenny dies in a microwave, and Kyle angrily calls the appliance a bastard.
** Or an episode where they have flashbacks and remember everything wrong...including one where they're outrunning [[TheGrimReaper Death]]. Kenny stops, [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat flips him onto his back]], and jumps up and down on him, to as speechless "Oh my God, Kenny, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu you... killed... Death...]]" "Yeah, you... bastard?"
** Though they occasionally go to great lengths to maintain it. Once Kenny was killed in a mosh pit with only Cartman to witness it. Cartman dutifully breaks out the first half of the phrase, and we cut to a wide outdoor shot wherein Kyle walks up from nowhere and yells the conclusion, then leaves.
*** Though not as well-known as a previous example, the boys had a standard exchange with Chef ("Hello, children! How's it going?/"Bad."/"Why bad?") that was subverted on two occasions: once when Chef scolded them for not being able to solve their own problems, and another time when the boys said that everything was fine, thus tipping Chef off that they were in serious trouble.
*** There was also the subversion of Chef's usual practice of having a song for every occasion:
---->'''Stan:''' We need you to promise not to tell anybody!\\
'''Chef:''' Now, children, every problem can be worked out. What was it?\\
'''Stan:''' We... killed our teacher and they found our Sea Men in her stomach.\\
---->'''Chef:''' Oh, children, that's a problem we all have to face at one time or another. Here, let me sing you a little song that might cheer you up: ♪''Sometimes you kill your teacher / And they find your [[OneDialogueTwoConversations semen]] in her stomach / And then you--''♪ [[DoubleTake Wait, what the]] -- '''''[[BigWhat WHAT?!]]'''''
* See also ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode in which Mr. Burns hires actors to impersonate the Simpsons and Homer's says "B'oh!" ("Homer Simpson doesn't say B'oh!, he says..." * flips through notes* "...D'oh!")
** In a Halloween episode Nelson is in the middle of his catchphrase ("Ha Ha!") when Bart stops time and removes his clothes. A nude Nelson ends up saying "Ha Huh?"
* Reversed in ''{{Transformers}}: WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', in an instance where instead of getting his CatchPhrase interrupted, Rattrap was left to say the CatchPhrase response himself.
--> "We're all gonna die... Yeah, yeah, I know, 'Shut up, Rattrap.'"
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' Bender's CatchPhrase "Bite my shiny metal ass" is interrupted in three occasions. In ''War is the H-Word'', Fry stops Bender from saying the last word because it triggers a voice-activated bomb inside him. In "Roswell That Ends Well", Bender's head falls off the ship as he says, "1947 can bite my shiny metal AAAAAAHHHHH!" In "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" Bender realizes that he had traded his "butt plate" to the Robot Devil, so it comes out "Bite my shiny metal... [[BigNo Oh, no!]]"
** Also in ''War is the H-Word'', A list of Bender's most often used words form "Bite my shiny ''daffodil'' ass."
** [[MadScientist Prof. Farnsworth's]] "Good news everyone!" was among the first of the show's catchphrases to be parodied. At first by following it with something contradictory ([[BadNewsInAGoodWay "Good news everyone! There's a news report on the TV with some very bad news..."]]) and finally out and out parody (e.g. "Bad news nobody. The super collider super exploded."). Not to mention;
--->'''Cubert: '''''* using a voice changer to sound like the professor* '' Good news everyone! I'm a horse's butt!
--->'''Farnsworth:''' I am? That's not good news at all!
* One of Commander Feral's usual lines in ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' is "Bring me chopper backup!" By the end of the first season, he starts getting regularly interrupted mid-line - typically due to his helicopter crashing, melting, or what-have-you.
* Occurs in ''WesternAnimation/ElTigreTheAdventuresOfMannyRivera'', when Manny enters a supervillain contest with a bunch of huge hairy men. He tries to console himself...
--> '''Manny:''' You know what they say. The bigger they are...
--> '''Frida:''' The more likely they'll cause internal bleeding! I know!
* Tends to happen to ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. Usually due to him being injured or otherwise inconvienced in the middle of his "I am the terror..." routine..
-->'''Darkwing:''' I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am... all out of my trademark blue smoke.
-->'''Darkwing:''' I am the terror that flaps [SPLAT] ... on your windshield?
* Occurs in the version first episode of the 2003 ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' series. When Michelangelo is about to shout his catchphrase "Cowabunga" from the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 1987 series]], he gets interrupted by Raphael.
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'':
-->'''Muscle Man:''' I know someone who can help...
-->'''Benson:''' If you say your Mom, you're FIRED!
-->'''Muscle Man:''' My mom!

* [[{{WesternAnimation/Metalocalypse}} Dr. Rockso the Rock n' Roll Clown's]] constant declarations that he does cocaine are so annoying that many people cut him off either verbally or [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown physically]].
-->'''Dr. Rockso''': I do co--[[ImprovisedWeapon Murderface chokes him with a balloon bass.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has a horrific scene from "Phineas and Ferb Get Busted", where the boys are sprayed with water (as if from a fire hose) whenever Phineas tries to say "Hey Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today".
** A less vicious one occurs at the start of "We Call It Maze" where Phineas starts, but Ferb just raises his hand and tells him "You don't even need to say it"
** In "Ready for the Bettys", Dr. Doofenshmirtz is interrupted from completing his line "Curse you, Perry the Platypus!" because he keeps getting shot by [[ItMakesSenseInContext a tennis ball launcher full of mops.]]
** In "Candace Disconnected", Dr. Doofenshmirtz gets as far as "Curse you, Perry the--" before his cell-phone rings with a call from his daughter Vanessa. He answers the call, chats with Vanessa a bit, then briefly puts her on hold so he can finish: "--Platypus!"
* From the beginning of an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.
-->'''Narrator:''' The City of--
-->'''Mayor:''' Never mind that hoohah! I've got an emergency!
* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheAlienInvaders'':

-->'''Officer:''' Yeah, yeah, yeah...
* In the ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' episode, "[[Recap/ThomasTheTankEngineS18E15SpencersVIP Spencer's VIP]]", when Duck and Oliver nearly run into each other, Oliver uses this to Duck's catchphrase:
-->'''Duck:''' There are two ways of doing things, Oliver, the Great Western Way or....\\
'''Oliver:''' ...the wrong way. I know. And you're doing it the wrong way!
