Added DiffLines:

* The artist's rendition of the hero who saved the girl scout (Zim in a remarkably lazy disguise that has his face coming out of the costume's mouth). The artist was fully aware that the disguise was just a costume, but in place of Zim's face poking out of the mouth you see a perfectly average human man's.

-->'''Man in the crowd:''' I don't know (beat) but don't try the muffins.

* [[UnreliableNarrator Dib's incredibly smug reminscing]] about how he covertly planted a bug in Zim's lab during their EnemyMine against Tak. Cut to the flashback of the actual event, which reveals that he simply [[LookBehindYou made Zim look away by yelling at him to look at a garbage can]] while he planted an ''enormous'' IncrediblyObviousBug that proceeded to ''loudly drill'' into Zim's equipment.

!!The Movie (''Enter the Florpus'')
* The very first piece of revealed dialogue from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwusJsp5dLc the Netflix trailer]] is an ''absolutely perfect'' return to form after years off the air.
-->(''Dib rolls up to Zim's house, now looking [[{{Gonk}} decidedly gross on multiple levels]]'')
-->'''Dib:''' ''Zim!''
-->'''Zim:''' (''posing dramatically on the lawn, one foot on GIR'') ''YES!! IT IS I!!!'' Oh wait, sorry. You'll have to move along, hideous goblin; I'm posing dramatically for when the Dib shows up.
-->'''Dib:''' ...I am Dib.
-->'''Zim:''' What? (''takes a closer look; his expression gets more and more disgusted'') Ugh. Ugh! ''Ugh!'' (''suddenly striking an even stranger pose'') '''''IIIIII'VE BEEN EXPECTING YOU, DIIIIIIB!!!'''''
* The short Netflix teaser has this moment with Zim giving of what possibly be his most ''fantastic'' EvilLaugh yet.
-->'''Zim:''' COMPUTER, ''LAUGH'' WITH ME!!
-->'''Computer:''' [[ManChild I DON'T WANT TO!]]
** After Dib confronts Zim, who's manipulated Dib into letting himself go by going into isolation, Zim reveals that he spent all of this time... sitting inside a toilet bowl doing nothing but laughing about how evil his plan was. For ''the entirety of his absence.''
* A line from the intro stands out:
-->'''Dib:''' (rendered in the most dramatic, [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure JoJo]]-esque art style possible) My name is Dib Membrane. (echoing) ''I'm twelve years old!''
* In Dib's attempts to get back into shape, one cut during his exercise montage involves him having gotten so muscular he's able to toss his handweights straight through a wall. The next cut has him looking completely normal. He then proceeds to dramatically suit up in his usual clothing and gear, and then ''farts the chair off his butt'', again, straight through a wall.
-->'''Dib''': I was in bad shape then I got too in shape and now i'm back to normal shape!
* Meanwhile, Zim is attempting to figure out what the next step of his plan was aside from "[[PokeThePoodle General mischief]]". Eventually, he wonders just when the Irken armada will get here, convinced they're not far away... only to discover Earth is not in the immediate vicinity of the armada. He asks the computer to zoom out until it can find Earth's presence relative to the fleet... and takes all day to do so, with Computer announcing each zoom out.
* Gir's song about peace.
-->"Peace is nice! Peace is nice! Peace is better then [[SuddenlyShouting CHICKEN AND RICE!!!]]"
* After Zim takes over takes over Membrane Labs and starts selling his modified Membracelets to all the children on Earth, he moves his headquarters ''right on the lawn of the Membrane house'', leading to this hilarious conversation between Dib and Zim, in which Dib shouts to Zim from atop the tall building while Zim can barely hear him.
--> '''Dib''': ZIM!! GET OFF MY LAWN!!\\
'''Zim''': HI DIB! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!\\
'''Dib''': I LIVE HERE!\\
'''Zim''': YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO SPEAK UP!\\
'''Dib''': YOU WON'T GET AWAY WITH THIS!\\
'''Zim''': WHAAAAAT?!\\
'''Dib''': YOU WON'T GET A--\\
'''Zim''': WHAAAAAT?!\\
'''Dib''': YOU WON'T GET AWA--\\
'''Zim''': WHAAAAAT?!\\
'''Dib''': YOU WON'T GET AWAY--\\
'''Zim''': WHAAAAAT?!\\
'''Dib''': YOU--\\
'''Zim''': WHAAAAAAAAAT?!
