--> (While talking about the Key of Mictlan) Part of me believes that the Darkness is inside all of us. Just a small bit of essence. It's a part of us. Maybe the Darkness came ''from'' us; maybe it's an extension of who we are, I don't know. But I ''do'' know that if any of those crazy ideas are even partly true, [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil then the Darkness isn't going anywhere]], [[ShootTheShaggyDog no matter what we do]].
--> Hmmm... I wonder what's on TV tonight...

** Noting that one infamous Darkness Host from the time of Moses was referred to as "a Dark Man who spoke with authority," and adding, "You know, like Creator/JamesEarlJones."

Added DiffLines:

** Comparing the Darkness's wrath to the Red Sox in his commentary on Siddhartha's Tears.

Added DiffLines:

* In the first game, there is a sidequest in which a busker is being extorted for an unbelievable cut of his pay in order to keep working in the subway, and he entreats Jackie to help him. When Jackie confronts the man and tells him to back off, the man defiantly asks Jackie what'll happen if he doesn't yield to Jackie's demands:
-->''Jackie'': Well, if you don't, I got a magic trick for you. I stick my hand down your throat, and pull a rabbit out your fuckin' ass.


* Dolfo's counterpart in the Asylum, "[[AdolfHitler Adolf]]," is good for a laugh. When Jackie first tries to escape the Asylum, he can be heard shouting, "Head for ze bunker! Tell Eva I will be late!"

** His description of the Lantern of Saint Anthony, claiming that it never worked properly because it was [[PoweredByAForsakenChild powered by the souls of children]], "and children are fickle little bitches." For good measure, he notes [[NiceJobBreakingItHero just how many hapless travellers died because Saint Anthony thought that the lantern could guide them home]], and because [[spoiler: the Angelus]] thought that the imprisoned souls of murdered children would make a nifty weapon. "[[SarcasmMode Yay!]]"

Added DiffLines:

* During the restaurant attack at the beginning, a woman is heard complaining of her ravioli being too spicy shortly before the attack. After the attack, "I said the ravioli was too spicy" are her last words before dying. In the Asylum, this throwaway line gets an ''entire poster'' in Jackie's room, portraying it as a musical comedy.
* In the Asylum, several ''Darkness'' comic books are next to Jackie's bed.

Added DiffLines:

* "I fixed your broken head ball."

* From ''TheDarkness'' [=/=]Pitt crossover has [[HitmanWithAHeart Jackie]] babysitting a young boy named Tim (MoralityPet and PersonOfMassDestruction) and they watch ''Film/TheGodfather'' together... and Jackie gives him pointers on how he would have carried out the hit.

* After the [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel nightmarish scene]] of Jackie being mutilated with an electric drill by Shrote, seeing the drill break down and Shrote throwing a temper tantrum can be [[BlackComedy darkly hilarious.]] The muffled yell of "Chinese piece of shit!" sells it.
