Colin: The new boss? I'll tell you what I think of him: he's vain, he's witless, he's morbidly obese, he's incompetent, he's devastatingly ugly, and he's standing right behind me, isn't he?
Man: Of course he isn't, we'd have said.
Colin: [confused] Oh, OK. Um... Alright, in which case I can go on to say that he's ignorant, pretentious, has appalling personal hygiene, and now he really is standing right behind me, isn't he?
Man: No, he's not!
Colin: Then why have you got that weird, awkward, frozen look on your faces?
Woman: Well, because you've just launched into a tirade of furious bile against a man we've only just met!
Man: Yeah, you also seem to be suffering a fairly powerful delusion that he's following you...
Colin: Yeah, but... ohhhh, God, has no-one told you? I'm a sitcom character.
Colleague: Don't worry, I'll handle this - my brother's a sitcom character too. What's that you say about the new boss, Colin?
Colin: He's ugly and stupid and bald and awful!
Colleague: He's also in charge of who gets a Christmas bonus this year.
Colin: ...and I won't hear a word said against him! Ohthankyousomuch.
Warp: All I know is that we've searched half the Zeta quadrant to find the missing LGMs and what do we find? A lot of NOTHING!
[a crater viper rises up from a crater directly behind Warp; he sees Buzz's horrified expression]
Warp: [thumbing over his shoulder] There's something really bad behind me, isn't there?
Simmons: (referring to Grey's rescue of Alex and Rick) C'mon, I saw that one of the officers was female, and a cute one at that — I know you, Grey.
Grey: Her?! Please, she's way too uptight. I don't have time for girls like that.
Simmons: What, you think you even stand a chance?
Grey: Give me a break. She may have an attitude, but if I wanted her, I could have her by the end of the night.
Alex: Hm, I'll take that bet.
John Stewart: Anyway, why are we always talking about my love life? What's going on with you and Diana?
Batman: Nothing. She's a respected colleague.
John Stewart: Uh-huh.
Batman: I don't have time to pursue a relationship. My work is too important to allow any distractions. Diana's a remarkable woman. She's a valued friend. She's... standing right behind me, isn't she?
Wonder Woman: Don't let that stop you. Keep digging.

Sir Hiss: (singing) "Too late to be known as John the First, he's sure to be known as John the Woooors-s-s-s-s-s-t.
(Hiss sees Prince John appearing in the doorway and gulps)
Sir Hiss: (nervously) The fabulous, marvelous, merciful, chivalrous...
Sheriff: Oh, you got it all wrong, Hiss. "The sniveling, groveling, weaseling—"
Prince John: ENOUGH! (throws a wine bottle at them as the Sheriff ducks)
Within a month the pale-eyed ronin's name was on everybody's lips, even in the merchant's district. Everyone was Seta-sama this, Seta-sama that; even Chie’s getting sucked into the rumors surrounding him. “You know,” she said when picking up supplies for the local inn, “I heard he used to be in the daimyo's service! I wonder what happened?”
"Who knows?" Yosuke shrugged; people like him didn’t have much to do with the samurai, who usually sent servants to conduct their business for them anyway. The closest he got to dealing with them were the scruffy ronin wandering the merchant district in Nagato, but even that was a while ago. “Must’ve been something spectacular.”
"Not really." Said an amused voice behind him. Gods above, how could someone move so quietly? Yosuke whipped around, ready to reprimand the newcomer, when he found himself face to face with none other than the fabled Seta-sama.
