Cop: Okay, now I get it. Your wife and the pizza guy deviously conspired to set you up: they kill themselves in your bed with your gun, proceed to chop each other to pieces in your bathtub with your chainsaw, and finally lure you to the backyard where they patiently wait under the rosebush to inject you with V, and when you were helpless, they leak blood all over you and call the police. Anything more to add?
Max lookalike: See, that's just it! I wish it was that easy. I know it sounds crazy, but they weren't in on it alone! It's much BIGGER than that! Basically anyone who does home delivery is involved! The mailman! And that means the government is involved! ...Gimmie a gun and set me loose, and I'll have this mess settled in no time!
Cop: (to Max) Not now, Payne. I think I just cracked the crime of the century.

"BRING ME THE VILE CREATURE WHO DREW THIS CARTOON!!!"
"Who wrote this crap? Oh yeah, Scott. Well, uhh, good work."
— Roger Wilco, Space Quest 6
"Man, who writes this guy's stuff?"
— Eddy, Ed, Edd n Eddy
"Rosebud... yes, Rosebud Frozen Peas. Full of country goodness and green pea-ness. Wait, that's terrible, I quit."
"I was wondering how those hack writers were going to wrap things up."
— Babs Bunny, Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation
"Right. Let's give this a whirl. 'Oh eternal and all powerful Lord, to whom the darkness itself bows down, from whom flows the damnation of humankind...' who writes this dross?"
— Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Nostalgia Critic: Okay, your story sucks.
"The shadowy conspiracy theory would work fine...if we really kept anything secret about ourselves. But we don't. At least...I don't. If anyone asked us, we pretty much told them upfront. About anything. Anyone that really wanted to look into how we operated just had to ask. But they didn't. ...It's kind of like someone's trying to write a knockoff of The Da Vinci code, but forget to ensure all the red herrings lined up."
—Umika, We Are Our Adventuring Avatars
Daffy Duck: I wonder where all the hunters are today? [gets shot by said hunters]
Daffy Duck: [enraged] I DEMAND TO KNOW WHO WROTE THIS SCRIPT!!
This sounds like the premise for a bad Saturday morning cartoon.
— Julian, Digimon Regenesis
