->Things we've said before are funny!
-->-- '''Karl Chandler'''

->"If catch phrases happened, they happened by accident. They weren't "created" upfront, like they are now. How many times did you cringe as a kid when you heard "Welcome to the 90s!" or such other writer creations? When I had Ren say "You bloated sac of protoplasm!" and similar things, people would yell them at me at appearances. I would see them on t shirts. People make me say "No sir, I don't like it" all the time. None of the lines in R and S were ever meant to be catch phrases, but they would just catch on, and Nickelodeon would lean on me to use them again. I resisted as much as possible, figuring that funny dialogue in the next cartoons would also catch on naturally."

->'''Chris''': So Clark and Ollie wander around the Phantom Zone until they're ambushed and have the crap kicked out of them because they're dumber than a sack of hammers, and then they get dragged to General Zod. And seriously, you're never going to guess what he says.\\
'''David''': To be fair, he DOESN'T say "[[KneelBeforeZod before Zod!]]" That shows SOME restraint!\\
'''Chris''': He does later, though. But yes, he tells them to KNEEL, because that's what he said in that movie from 30 years ago! You remember that, right? And if you remember it, that makes it good! That's why he's going to say it four or five more times over the course of the episode!

->'''Chris''': "Because I'm the best there is at what I do, and what I do isn't very nice." On the one hand, it's a pretty awful hammering in of a catchphrase, but on another, I'm legitimately impressed that they went three and a half movies before dropping that one on us.\\
'''Matt''': And it isn't growled through his teeth. It's so matter-of-fact, like he's talking about when his driver's license expires.

->Scotty reports that he 'doesn't know how long he can hold it together'--because that's what Scotty always says, and catchphrases are meant to be used, and used, and used until you can almost anticipate their arrival.
