    Season One 
Hank and Dean: "He started it!''
Dr. Venture: " No, I started it years ago in a moment of passion! And I'll end it the same way right here in front of Brock, H.E.L.P.eR., and God!''

Brock: "Now, I want you to put your hand around your throat, Hank.''
Hank: "Uhh...alright.''
Brock: "That tube you feel is your trachea. Think of it as a handle. Your thumb is on your carotid artery, that's your button. Now remember, grab the handle, push the button. Repeat that back.''
Hank: " (gasping) Grab the handle, push the...''
Brock: "Let go of your own throat, Hank.''

The Monarch: "Well, Hank, what's it like to be a... liar? Huh? You like being a liar with pants constantly on fire?''
Tiny Attorney: "Objection, your honor, leading.''
The Monarch: "I'll rephrase that: Hank, are you a liar?''
Hank: "No sir, I don't think so.''
The Monarch: "Yes you are!''
Dean: "You're the liar!''
The Monarch: "And may I remind you, that I am rubber and you are glue and whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.''

Brock: "No, Dean, this is Guild business, your father isn't in any harm. Guild work is clean, professional. It's surgical with them. In a way they're the only organization I still respect.''
Hank: "And they kill clean, don't let dames get in the way.''
Brock: "Honestly, Hank, where do you pick that stuff up? I never see you read.''
Dean: "It's weird, right?''
Brock: "It's like he channels dead crazy people.''
The Monarch, in a Scared Straight Program: "You're probably wondering why you're here, YOU'RE HERE BECAUSE YOU DONE FUCKED UP TOO MANY TIMES! You think you're hot shit in a champagne glass, but you're really cold diarrhea in a Dixie cup! And if you keep like you've been doin', this is where you're heading.''
Kid 1: (snickering) ''
The Monarch: "Oh, that's funny to you right? Cause you so fuckin' bad? I know your type. You think, "I'll just get me a costume and rip off the neighborhood kids." Next thing you know you've got a jet shaped like a skull with lasers on the front.''
Kid 2: "This is totally gay.''
The Monarch: "What?! You think this is gay, huh? Is that what you fucking said, you scrawny piece of shit? Oh, this isn't gay! But King Gorilla over there is, and I'll bet he can't wait to break off a piece of your dick in his ass! (King Gorilla makes kissing lips)''
The Monarch: "You - get up! I SAID GET THE FUCK UP! What's your name?''
Dean: "Dean Ven...''
The Monarch: "YOUR NAME IS BITCH! And I own you. YOU'RE PROPERTY! And when I'm tired of having sex with every hole God drilled in your slender frame - King Gorilla, you got a cigarette? There, I just sold you for a cigarette, and I don't smoke!'' *Beat It dawns on the Monarch that "Bitch" was Dean* Holy Shit! You're Dean fucking Venture! King, I gotta buy my bitch back. Here's your cigarette.
King Gorilla: Fuck you, give me a dollar!

    Season Two 
Hunter Gathers (to Brock): "Lesson number one: trust no one. The minute God crapped out the third caveman, a conspiracy was hatched against one of them. Get up, damn you! (throws Brock a jetpack) Strap 'er on kid, your training starts now. When I'm through with you, you'll be a member of the elite agency that's been thanklessly defending this big-ass country since the second American Revolution.... the invisible one. Welcome to the Office of Secret Intelligence, Samson!''

Brock: "(sigh) So. No women, no children ó''
Hunter: "No women, no children. Them's rules. Seperates us from the baddies.''
Brock: "But what if she's an enemy agent?''
Hunter: "Uh-uh.''
Brock: "An assassin?''
Hunter: "No.''
Brock: "A double-agent assassin who just killed the President.''
Hunter: "No sir. Non-lethal takedown only. President killed the president anyway, you know that.''
Brock: "Oh. Hey, how about, you know, uh... a lady Dracula?''
Hunter: "You mean, le vampyr? Nosferatu?''
Brock: "I guess.''
Hunter: "Undead. Not technically a woman in that regard, so you got no beef there. Also, fictitious. (Brock lifts a baguette to his mouth) Do not eat that, it's C4!''

Osiris Priest: "Give me the Hand of Osiris!''
Dr. Venture: "Give me head.''
Osiris Priest: "You didn't just say that!''
Dr. Venture: "I absolutely did. What are you gonna do about it?''
Osiris Priest: "I'm... about to kill your sons.''
Dr. Venture: "Join the club!''

Osiris Cultist: "Ooh yeah, of course, OIL. Yeah, it makes sense now. Thought you told me to fill it with hot voile.''
Osiris High Priest: "Wh-What the hell is voile?''
Osiris Cultist: "It's a soft, sheer fabric. I warmed some up in the dryer.''
Osiris High Priest: "What the.. are you insane? What kind of torture is that? Get out of here! I'm serious, I don't even want to LOOK at you any more!''

Brock: "Hank, you and Caligula keep up the rear. (Caligula moans happily and hugs Hank) On second thought, you and Freud should do it. Caligula, you take the second wave alone. Ready Dean?''
Dean: "Woah, steady, Perfect Man. Ready Brock!''
Brock: "When the gates open me, Poe, and me, (pointing to himself from the past) rush in. You got that? ''

Prof. Richard Impossible: "You see, Dr. Venture, I found the piece your father hid in the foundation years ago. Then I thought about you in physics class. You were a daydreamer, a sass-mouth, and, not infrequently, a bit of a gigglepuss. Somehow I doubt twenty years of amphetamines and failure have done anything to improve that.''

Prof. Impossible: "Please! This is important!''
Sally Impossible: "What could be more important than your family, Richard?''
Prof. Impossible: "Ssssssscience?''

The Monarch: " (sighing) Jollyrancher 82, never get henchmen.''
Jollyrancher 82: "You know, that's not my real name.''
The Monarch: "Well, how was I supposed to know? I used my real name.''
Jollyrancher 82: "I just thought, you know... "The Monarch," I thought you were into cosplay...''
The Monarch: "Real name! And I am into costumed business, not costumed play."

Dr. Killinger: "The Venture problem is very volatile. We must approach it with caution, but first we need to address other drastic issues. The floating cocoon is in bad need of..."
#24: "The cocoon's fine! I think the problem is you!"
#21: "He's right! Yeah, everybody just thinks you're sooo great, but you're just sooo not!"
#24: "Yeah! Who do you think you are?"
#21: "I mean, come on! This guy just waltzes in here with his huge baby-bearing hips and he starts changing everything."
Dr. Killinger: "That's not fair. I never chose my figure."

#21: "You can silence me but there will be others. Semper Fidelis Tyrannosaurus!''
Dr. Killinger: "It's Sic Semper Tyrannis. You said, "Ever faithful terrible lizard."''
#21: "I did? Cool.''

Brock: "Yeah, he was just this guy... guy in a butterfly suit who got in over his head. And I could see it in his eyes that if I let him get away this one time he'd never come back...but then, I also thought...y'know...Kill 'im.''

Shaman: "Quanto! (Begins to Mumble)"
Shaman's Interpreter: "Wuh - one time, I am in the Amazon, on my canoe, and I see, swim, the dolphin, the, uh, the beautiful dolphin, so I slip out of my canoe, and I grab her, this...fish...and, uh, then I fucked it... the fish!"
Brock: "The hell's that got to with anything?"
Shaman: "Kayho Hadaile!"
Shaman's Interpreter: "Hot dolphin!"

Dream Hunter: "What is all this namby-pamby feel bad about good wet work bullshit?! You're beyond good and evil, Superman! You work for the government."
Brock: "What about uhhh, humanity and empathy and all that garbage?"
Dream Hunter: "Who cares? You're going to special ops heaven."
Brock: "Really?"
Dream Hunter: "Really! And it's god damned great! The G-Man Valhalla! There's trim and guns everywhere. And we eat steak flavored clouds and poop secrets!"

Col. Hunter Gathers: "I have no idea..."

Dr. Venture: "We're going to use The Buddy System. The person seated next to you is your buddy. Everyone say, 'Hi, buddy!'"
Boys: "Hi, buddy!"
Dr. Venture: "If you touch something that melts your fingers off, tell your buddy! If you get a face-full of burning hydroflouric acid, it's your buddy who drags you to one of the many eye wash stations!"

The Monarch: "I had true hatred with Venture. I didn't have to fake it! That sweet loathing just poured out of me whenever I saw his pathetic face. I just...I just wanted to kick his ass! I wanted to build a machine to kick his ass! I wanted to build an empire to house the machine TO KICK HIS ASS!"
Henchman 24: "Then, by God, let's go take a dump in his pool!"

Dr. Venture: This is gonna be one of those things, isn't it?
Brock: Uh-huh.
Dr. Venture: I mean, you get a bunch of short-fused, costumed idiots together in one room like this, and what do you think's gonna happen? Any minute now, stuff's gonna start blowing up, guys'll be throwing each other at other guys."
Brock: Yeah, probably.
Dr. Venture: Huh. You know, when you're not the one in the middle of it all for once, it's actually totally, completely obvious.
Brock: Uh-huh. Welcome to my life.

Mr. Cardholder: "If this were a woman, I'd marry it."

Mr Doe: "That's a joke."
Mr Cardholder: "Regular cut-up."
Mr Doe: "Should give him a reality show."
Mr Cardholder: "I'd watch it."
Mr Doe: "I'd watch it twice."
Mr Cardholder: "Even if Flava Flav was in it."

Henchman 21: "You still don't get it. 24 and I have been on, like, a thousand missions. We've been shot at, dipped in acid...
Henchman 24: "Brock Samson hit me with a car. Drove right into my kidney. Here I am!"
Henchman 24: "Hey, here; what's your name?"
Henchman 1: "Henchman number 1."
Henchman 24: "See, you are nameless."
Henchman 1: "I'm Scott Hall, my name is Scott Hall. Okay?"
Henchman 24: "No, won't help."
Henchman 21: "Yeah, now it's just pathos. So you're dying in my lap and I'm all 'Scott! Scott don't you quit on us! Don't you dare!!' "
Henchman 24: "You just made your unavoidable death more pathetic."

Brock: "You know that he rips those himself. He just tears it off like a Chippendales fireman, every time."
Col. Gathers: "Good god, why?"
Shore Leave: "For one, because it looks super-cool."
Col. Gathers: "Youíre an infant."

The Monarch: "Honey, they're henchmen. You don't explain to them, they do your bidding. When you say "jump", they say, "what shark?""

Col. Gathers: "Wipe their pink little minds and send them back home, like I told you."
Brock: "They discover us every other week. I canít keep doing that, its starting to make them buggy. Listen to this. Dean, what day is today?"
Dean: (immediately) "Sagittarius."
Brock: (slowly) "Good! Now Hank, what color is my tongue?"
Hank: "Itís kind of... Wednesday! Like a light Wednesday."

Col. Gathers: "Ohh, that poor woman has the saddest tits. Damn depressing."
Brock: "Right? Yeah, they're like The Notebook sad."
Col. Gathers: "Her tits are like "coming home from school and finding out that your old man ran over your cat" sad."

Thanatos: "Hey, many of these women could be murderous gold diggers, or, at the very least, carriers of chlamydia."

Dr. Venture: "Well, no wonder with that mouth, since when did you take up cussing?"
Dean: "I'm sick of living my life in a box! I don't wanna be a scientist, or a boy adventurer, or even a Venture Brother anymore. I just wanna be my own man."
