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*
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!"
- Of course, this has been lampshaded by now and variations aren't so unusual:
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: "Who the hell do you think we are!?"
- Bill and Ted
- Wayne and Garth from the Wayne's World sketches on Saturday Night Live and The Movie that followed.
- Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
- Jay and Silent Bob.
- Joey and Chandler from Friends, although arguably Chandler spouts the catch phrases and Joey responds merely predictably.
- Sam and Dean Winchester.
- 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!"
- Edge and Christian in the WWF, who were later joined by Kurt Angle.
- 3.0, Scott "Jagged" Parker & Shane Matthews, in CHIKARA. BOOYAH!
- 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.
- Beavis And Butthead
- Jay and Silent Bob from The View Askewniverse films and Clerks: The Animated Series (though the catchphrase-spouting was limited to Jay, as Silent Bob, as his name implies, is The Voiceless most of the time).
- Mauve Shirts 21 and 24.
