Quotes: Anti-Climax
"To call it an anticlimax would be an insult not only to climaxes but to prefixes."

"Legend's final showdown is a worse catalog of disaster than Skymall For Supervillains. Chun-Li defeats her mortal enemy by accident, knocking cement powder from an utterly unexplained building site in the heart of Bison's fortress into his eyes. He staggers around like a crippled Make-a-Wish kid whose final desire was to be a guest villain in Home Alone, waiting a full five minutes until Chun-Li believes in herself hard enough to throw a fireball, despite having absolutely no reason to do that instead of just walking over and kicking him."

"The Master has finally defeated the Doctor…by plugging in a few wires hehehehehe. That would have been a crap defeat."

Chris: I thought I was exaggerating when I said it was “less than five (seconds),” but I went and looked at the timestamps. Clark power-walks onto the same stupid street set they always use at 26:11, and they crash into the geothermal facility and blow it up at 27:50.
David: I just tried to think of something funny to respond to that with for four minutes. Note: That’s longer than the fight itself took.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville ("Doomsday")

"To resurrect an old saying, 'Anything can happen in WWE!' Say what you will, but Sheamus’s 18-second victory was a Wrestlemania moment to be remembered forever…except by those who were out taking a leak or who got home late and flipped on the TV at 8:05 Eastern Time."
