Quotes: Training Montage
Buffy: "I'm just worried this whole session's gonna turn into some training montage from an eighties movie."
Giles: "Well, if we hear any inspirational power chords, we'll just lie down until they go away."

...and that day... BEGINS TODAY!
Bludshot the Recolour Episode 1, just before a running montage.

The hour's approaching, to give it your best
You've got to reach your prime.
That's when you need to put yourself to the test
And show us a passage of time
We're going to need a montage (montage!)
Ooh it takes a montage (montage!)
- "Montage", from Team America: World Police

Guts! Guts and might!
Liftin' weights and feelin' alright!
It's a showdown!
Goin' downtown! You gonna mess around!
Get your nose down!
- Strong Bad, "montage"

You're gonna run up a ramp with two buckets of water
Swing over muck for some reason
At some point you'll drop to your knees when it's raining
And look up into the sky...

You're gonna eat lightning, and you're gonna crap thunder!
Mick Goldmill, from Rocky

When a tiger roars, and the mountain cries
You gotta dream the dream, you gotta win the prize
You're gonna go the miles
You're gonna face the trials

Never lose sight of the sights you see
You gotta believe your beliefs are real
Now you're drinkin' from a fire hydrant
Teach your uncle how to wear a cummerbund
Now you're gonna jump a crazy gorge
Keep on shaving that hairy uncle!

Uh, I don't really know what's happening in this part
Your heart's on fire and the fire is in your heart!
—"Training Mix", Gravity Falls, "Dipper vs. Manliness"
