* Bronze Star's total failure to reassure The Tick when Arthur is kidnapped by Lobstercules.
-->'''Bronze Star:''' He might not kill him right away. I once hunted a monster in the Ozarks that used to keep his victims alive long enough to lay eggs in them. He'd shove his ovireceptor right down their...\\

* Overkill breaks into Arthur's apartment to ask The Tick to lift his [[IOweYouMyLife no-kill order]]. The Tick's assessment? Overkill needs a hug.
-->'''The Tick:''' HUG FIGHT!
* Later, Overkill turns up in Dot's apartment in his usual CeilingCling. When she asks what he's doing, he says she wasn't there when he arrived and this seemed less weird than just lurking in the street.
-->'''Dot:''' Are you drunk?\\
'''Overkill:''' [[BlatantLies No.]] [''Falls''] Yes. [''Whiskey bottle rolls away'']
* When they're sat on Dot's couch getting drunk(er) together, Overkill starts agonising about Tick's no-kill order. However, he doesn't state what this "incapacity" he's upset over actually is, clearly making Dot think he's talking about [[TheLoinsSleepTonight something else]].

[[folder:General]]
* The Tick is back and as hilarious as ever!
* What's noteworthy is his original costume: it's very cheaply designed as if it was made out of plastic and paper. Then in Episode 2, his costume is more armoured and smoother, and a darker shade of Blue. The Tick doesn't even notice.
