Quotes: Took a Level in Jerkass
"You used to be sweeter than honey! Now you're getting all kinds of nasty!"
LeShawna, referring to Geoff, Total Drama Action

"Oh, for goodness' sake! You've been kind for far too long, my dear! Time to be cruel! Arrivederci!"
Discord, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, "The Return of Harmony, Part 1"

"So, thus far this has been pretty much the same as the first movie, only with a lot more filler, and Bandit is now sporting a racing jacket with his name on it. On the trip, we get a good sense of just how egotistical Bandit has become, as he drones on about how everyone knows him and blah blah blah. Sure, the average [Burt] Reynolds character has a pretty big ego, but generally it’s tempered by... Well, something!"

"Sure, in the beginning, Jerry was the likeable struggling comedian — the underdog, if you will — and his love of Superman conveyed a sense of innocence and whimsy. But when you spend as long a time with a character as we spent with Jerry, you get to know what he's really like. Simply put, Jerry was a jerk. He was smug, petty, lazy, dishonest, picky, and he generally did not like people unless they were laughing at his jokes. Which is why the series ended with him in jail, and everyone was mostly okay with that."

"Jerkass Homer is the one who, in “Maximum Homerdrive”, is so boastful of his stomach capacity that he gets into an eating contest with a perfect stranger, accidentally kills him, takes over his trucking route, and acts like such an asshole that the other truckers try to kill him before the end of the episode. Jerkass Homer is invincible and totally self confident, the evil doppelganger of the Homer that had originally been on the show. Jerkass Homer does ugly things like use the sleeper hold he learned in bodyguard training on Marge and Lisa. Jerkass Homer screams and cries and runs away from home, beats up the Emperor of Japan, feels entitled to hang out with A-list celebrities, and goes on wild benders in Las Vegas to show Ned Flanders how to be exciting."
Dead Homer Society, "Jerkass Homer Gets a Job"
