Quotes / Forced Meme

"Well, look kid, you can't just force a catchphrase. It's gotta come from the gut. I mean, look at Ash here. You think he spent hours coming up with 'Groovy' or the whole 'Hail to the king' thing? [...] The point I'm making is that a catchphrase has gotta be sincere. Those internet a-holes can spot a phony a mile away."

Digibro: I mean, before we even talk about this episode itself, mate, I just gotta say, look: in the last podcast I kept saying that the show was bait. That it was a forced meme. This show is "Forced Meme: The Show".
Best Guy Ever: Yeah.
Digibro: And it's fuckin worked. It's working. Have you been on /a/ much, lately?
Best Guy Ever: No. No I have not.
Digibro: There's been plenty of Eromanga Sensei threads on /a/.
Best Guy Ever: I should go familiarize myself, I'd like to know what people are saying.
Digibro: People are into the girls... There wasn't a whole lot of threads for episode 3 yet, but I went to one that was, "Why is Elf best girl?" and most of the replies were like, "Hehe, I like Elf too." The show's got the highest preorder sales so far of the new season.
Best Guy Ever: Oh no!
Digibro: It's looking like a big success.
Best Guy Ever: Well, it's earned it! (laughs)
Digibro: The memes, the thing is that the memes worked, all those forced memes from episode 2, like the whole, her saying "dick"? I've already seen remixes, people making remixes of her saying "dick", y'know, set to songs and stuff. Just, like, a whole song of "chin-chin" and all that.
Best Guy Ever: These people have been fucking duped. They have been duped.
Digibro: Everything that they wanted to be a meme has become a meme, the opening and ending dance has been very popular—which rightfully so, the opening and ending dances are fucking cute.
Best Guy Ever: I like the ending dance a lot, yeah.
Digibro: Yeah, but, you know. All it means is that the show is— it's everywhere on social media, 'cause everyone reposted that fucking dance, y'know? It's exactly what it was meant to do, and it succeeded.

"Milhouse is not a meme. But 'Milhouse is not a meme' IS a meme. If you fully understand this you have reached /b/ enlightenment."

"Gretchen, stop trying to make 'fetch' happen! It's not going to happen!"

Strong Bad: Oh, this road trip is definitely going to be jumbo/LARGE.
The Cheat: [quizzical The Cheat noises]
Strong Bad: Just laugh at it. It's an inside joke. It's going to be hilarious.
Strong Bad Email, "road trip"

"And another thing, Ubisoft: stop misusing the word 'iconic'. Aiden Pierce does not have an 'iconic' baseball cap, okay? Arno from Assassin's Creed: Unity doesn't have an 'iconic' pocket watch like you're claiming in your advertising for the collector's edition. We don't even know who Arno is yet! You don't just get to say things are iconic when they're not iconic! That's for us, the iconogrophers, popular culture, we to decide! You don't get to decide that! Not you! Not you! Thank god for me! Iconic catchphrase!"
