Catch Phrase Spouting Duo
A pair of young slackers who provide a steady stream of neologistic slang for America's youth.

May overlap with Those Two Guys and Heterosexual Life-Partners.


Examples:

Anime and Manga
  • Team Rocket from the Pokémon anime, mainly with their motto.
    Team Rocket: "Looks like Team Rocket's blasting off again..." *ping*
    • Of course, this has been lampshaded by now and variations aren't so unusual:
    Jessie & Meowth: "Looks like Team Rocket's blasting off again..." *ping*
    James (currently separated from his team-mates): "I could have sworn someone just screamed blasting off again, but we copyrighted that didn't we? Oh well!"
  • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: "Who the hell do you think we are!?"

Comic Books

Film

Live-Action TV
  • Joey and Chandler from Friends, although arguably Chandler spouts the catch phrases and Joey responds merely predictably.
  • Sam and Dean Winchester.
    'Bitch.'
    'Jerk.'
  • Shawn and Gus from Psych. Oh, Lord, the catchphrases.
  • Wheel of Fortune host-hostess tandem Pat Sajak and Vanna White usually sign off with some variation of "We'll see you next time." "Bye bye!"
  • Similarly, Chuck Woolery and Stacey Hayes (later Shandi Finessey) of Lingo would sign off with "It's not just letters…" "…it's Lingo."
  • Community: "TROY AND ABED SAY THEIR CATCH PHRASE!"
Professional Wrestling

Radio
  • Though not young, not American, not really slackers and often just giving old phrases national airing, Radio 1 DJs Mark and Lard were a two-man catchphrase factory, whose comic nonsense was borrowed by other Djs and requested by listeners regardless of context.
