(*''cut to Tychus standing in the middle of the room absently adjusting his PoweredArmor's crotch plate''*)˛* If you complete the "Ghost of a Chance" scenario, Tosh will become enraged at Raynor during the post-mission communication and will stab a Voodoo doll. It has no effect on Raynor, to Tosh's perplexity, but Tychus finds himself being hit with piercing pain and tossed around the room. Then later when Nova gets ahold of it...˛** [[ComedicSociopathy "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA]][[GroinAttack GGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!"]]˛* "Bar Brawl", after [[spoiler:Jim's beating up of Tychus]]:˛--> '''Jim''': And fix my damn jukebox.˛--> '''Tychus''': L'il help here? (cuts to black) ...anybody?˛* Tychus's reaction to the Odin.˛--> ''"Brutah, it is the single greatest creation in the history of mankind."''˛* Terran's [[NukeEm Nuclear Missile]] has [[HeyCatch "Take it!"]] painted on its side.˛* Mission "Engine of Destruction". Tychus shows his love of the Odin in hilarious ways:˛--> "Now how'd I miss this button with a skull on it?" ''(Nuclear Launch Detected)'' "'''Oh, baby'''... you're in for a ''world'' of pain!"˛--> "Just wake me up when you're ready. I reckon a small nuke oughta do it."˛** Matt's reaction to Tychus's talks after the first base:˛-->'''Matt''': Does he always talk this much, sir?˛-->'''Raynor:''' Yup. Once you get him into a fight, he never shuts up.˛** Tychus then discovers that the Odin has a ''bathroom'' installed. How he uses it while welded into his PowerArmor [[FridgeLogic isn't explained, though]].˛--->'''Tychus:''' Well, I'll be damned... those Dominion eggheads really thoughta everythin'. Pardon me for a moment... ''(sound of toilet flushing a couple of seconds later)''˛* After the opening cutscene in which Raynor shoots the TV in the bar out of anger at Mengsk, every time you go to the Cantina (even after moving to the Hyperion), there is a paper taped to the TV that says "[[CallBack Dont shoot the screen.]]"˛** "P.S. I'll add the cost of the TV to your tab."˛* Introduction to the penultimate mission:˛-->'''Tychus:''' You know, I've been thinkin'.˛-->'''Raynor:''' Scares me more than the Zerg.˛* Several moments from the news broadcasts and commercials:˛** Kate Lockwell breaking loose and letting out several excited cheers when [[spoiler:she's promoted to lead anchor when her predecessor, Donny Vermillion, has himself committed]].˛*** Not to mention the story of [[spoiler:Donny's commission. At the time, [[NoodleImplements he was wearing nothing but socks, holding a copy of Emperor Mengsk's manifesto and a pound of peanut butter.]]]]˛** Also, Kate's [[CensoredForComedy heavily censored interview]] of a Dominion ghost.˛---> We expect to ''[bleep]'' them... very soon.˛---> '''Donny:''' [[LampshadeHanging I'm sure we'll all sleep a little better tonight.]]˛** "Nuke Noodles: Call down the flavor!"˛** "Take your shot at life: iPistol!"˛** "Can he warn me when he's gonna do that?"˛** "[[HypocriticalHumor WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT WOMAN?! TELL HER NOT TO INTERRUPT MY INTERVIEWS!]]"˛** All of Donny's hilariously inept attempts at censoring various news stories to favor Emperor Mengsk (if the clips show up before ''Media Blitz'' is completed).˛-->''(cutting Kate off)'' I'm sorry, Kate, I've just received news that - er. Um. *{{Beat}}* Cut - cut to commercial.˛** Jim's occasional [[DeadpanSnarker retorts]] also provide a good chuckle.˛---> '''Jim''': Everyone's a critic.˛* While it's also a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, this exchange from the cutscene after "Media Blitz" adds humor to the flavoring, too.˛-->'''Mengsk:''' "I was called upon to serve the greater interest of humanity! Personal power was never my goal!" \˛'''Kate:''' "Then how would you characterize ''this'' statement?" \˛'''Tape Recorder:''' ''*click*''\˛'''[[spoiler:Recording of [=SC1!=]Mengsk]]:''' [[spoiler:I will not be stopped, not by you, or the Confederates, or the Protoss, or anyone! I will ''rule'' this sector, or see it burnt to ashes around me!"]]˛** Mengsk's subtle OhCrap face as he realizes he ain't gonna be able to spin ''this'' particular smear on his record.˛* "HAVE A NICE DAY <3"˛* "Ain't no time to be lying down on the job, general."˛* There's of course the Blizzard famous StopPokingMe quotes. The ghosts, for example, have taken their barely contained psychopathy UpToEleven in this installment...˛-->'''Ghost''': Whenever I see a world untouched by war, a world of innocence, a world of lush forests and clear rivers... I really just wanna ''[[AxCrazy nuke the crap out of it]]''.˛-->'''Reaper''': Thought I was signin' up to be a repo man, [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant imagine my surprise]]...˛-->'''Marine''': [[ChewBubblegum I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum! And I'm all out of]] - oh, forget it...˛-->'''Firebat''': Ack. Turns out I ''hate'' [[Film/ApocalypseNow the smell of napalm in the morning]].˛-->'''Medic''': Dammit, [[ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder I'm a medic, not a doctor]]! *{{beat}}* Oh.˛-->'''Battlecruiser''': The [[WaveMotionGun Yamato]] is loaded... [[VodkaDrunkenski and so am I]]!˛** Even more hilarious, the Thor doesn't even wait past the fourth poke.˛-->'''Thor''': I am here! [[BreakingTheFourthWall Click me]]!˛** The Protoss Stalker [[MeaningfulName lives up to his name]].˛--> ''You went to bed early last night.''\˛''You never return my calls.''\˛''Restraining order? What about our love?''\˛''I have pictures of you... hundreds.''˛** Yes, the Protoss heroes in "In Utter Darkness" might be fighting to the death against impossible odds, but they still manage to get in a few quips before then.˛--> '''Urun''': Who are you, and why should I care?˛--> '''Mohandar''': Some humans have redeeming qualities. You are not one of them.˛--> '''Selendis''': [[SurroundedByIdiots I am surrounded by inferior life forms.]]˛--> '''Artanis''': ''(poke)'' I must practice tolerance. ''(poke)'' I am not easily provoked. ''(poke)'' '''[[RageBreakingPoint DIE! DIE! DIE!]]'''˛** The ending to said mission can come across as unintentionally funny. It's presented like the Dark Voice needs to wipe sentient life because they wanted to turn the lights off in the universe. Their ''"I love it when a plan comes together."'' may feel cheesy too.˛* The "Heal Bus" comment of the Medivac's description at the Hyperion Hangar. Veers into BlackComedy territory from the fact that said nickname caused a Medic to snap [[DeadlyDoctor so badly]] that she had to be [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul resocialized]].˛* Speaking of BlackComedy, the otherwise dark and somber ''Haven's Fall'' mission has this at the beginning:˛-->'''Raynor:''' Stay sharp! I want anyone that leaves the ship to be wearing a suit! Last thing I need is more people getting infested.˛-->'''Tychus:''' They infest marines too, brother.˛-->'''Raynor:''' My orders still stand. ''(under his breath)'' Shouldn't be a problem for you though, Tychus...˛* Swann can be relied on to bring the snark whenever.˛** During his introduction:˛-->'''Raynor''': Look, I know money's been tight - but that artifact we just picked up from Mar Sara's gonna solve everything!˛-->'''Swann''': I've heard that before, brother.˛-->'''Raynor''': It's different this time˛-->'''Swann''': Yeah, I heard that one, too.˛** Post "Ghost of a Chance", regarding Nova:˛-->'''Swann''': Your girl came through alright.[...]˛-->'''Raynor''': She ain't "my girl", Swann.˛-->'''Swann''': Hmm. Scary female assassin type that's going to wind up trying to kill you some day? She sure ''seems'' like your type.˛** In the opening of "Supernova", where Raynor's force must outrun a wall of fire:˛-->'''Swann''': Hope you brought your sunscreen, Cowboy.˛-->'''Raynor''': Now ''ain't'' the time, Swann!˛* Tychus and Raynor are discussing the completed artifact:˛-->'''Tychus''': I just wish the damn thing came with an instruction manual. For all we know, we could be upsettin' the entire space-time continuum.˛-->'''Raynor''': Easy, Tychus. [[ThisIsReality This ain't science fiction]].˛** [[HilariousInHindsight Even funnier]] since ''VideoGame/LegacyOfTheVoid'' was released - it basically does exactly what Tychus described [[spoiler: as part of its function to revive a dead Xel'naga!]]˛* This exchange:˛-->'''Raynor''': Say... didn't you end up gettin' married the last time we were there?˛-->'''Matt''': I told you before: if I had known what the prize was, [[AccidentalMarriage I never would've joined that card game]]!˛* The TooDumbToLive mentality of the AI really kicks in in ''Media Blitz'', where [[spoiler:the Odin]] is implied to be the most powerful weapon of war the Dominion, or perhaps humanity period, has ever created. Doesn't stop any enemy unit at all from running in and attacking you without any concern for their safety. Considering the unit is so big it can knock over streetlights and crush cars just by walking around, it can be pretty amusing to see a lone marine charge in guns blazing at you.˛* The [[ trailer]] for the official crossover mod Blizzard DOTA (now known as [[VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm Heroes of the Storm]]) has some hilarious self-aware narration.˛-->These heroes are forced to fight to the death in an endless battle with no purpose other than ladder points.˛* Raynor got a few quotes in the Hyperion:˛--> "Ahh, I like all the pretty lights."˛--> "I should go for a walk outside... Oh wait."˛--> "That's it. Goin' to have to start pretendin' like I'm workin'."˛--> "Standin' around talking to my damn self..."˛--> "What the Hell was I doing?"˛* When Raynor arrives at the rendezvous point for Moebius and is met with Valerian and the Dominion, Raynor is hailed by them in the subsequent mission briefing. Raynor demands to know why the Crown Prince of Terran Dominion wants to help him, and when Valerian tries to avoid that question and instead discuss their next move, Raynor closes the channel, smirks, then re-opens it a couple seconds later. Cue DeathGlare and "I can see why my father wants to kill you."˛** In the same scene a moment later, there's this exchange.˛-->'''Valerian:''' Everyone wonders if I will be as good an emperor as my father. But I want something more: to prove I will be a better emperor, and a better ''man''. \˛'''Raynor:''' That shouldn't be hard.˛* In ''Supernova'', Raynor must get an alien artifact and get out of the planet before it gets completely consumed by its own sun. Guess who chooses this moment to show up?˛--->'''Tal'Darim Executor''': James Raynor! We expected your arrival... Now you will ''pay'' for desecrating our holy relics.˛--->'''Raynor''' (sounding more annoyed than worried): [[HereWeGoAgain Aw, hell]]... [[TheUsualAdversaries not these Tal'Darim guys again]]. [[HypocriticalHumor They seriously need to learn when to quit]]!˛* Ariel Hanson saying "We sure gave Mensk a kick in the pants!" in an excited manner after "Media Blitz". ˛** If you move the Odin around civilains, they'll say the usual "That things out of control!", "someone has to stop it!", "[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking That things making potholes!]]".˛* The mission in the Zerg's Tunnels gives us this pearl:˛-->'''Stetmann''': [[AdmiringTheAbomination Zerg are fascinating! I wish we had time to learn more about them]]!˛-->'''Tychus''': I know everything there is to know about them: put a bullet in 'em, they die.'˛** The end of the mission sees Raynor and his friends running to the exits while tunnels are swallowed up by lava. Tychus gets a moment to watch his surroundings.˛-->'''Tychus''': [[CaptainObvious Ah hell, the lava's rising!]]˛-->'''Raynor''': That was the whole idea, Tychus! Now run for the extraction point, you idiot! ˛* Reactions to misuse of and abuse of the Drakken Laser Drill - played for laughs.˛** If the player attacked the drill, Tychus gets mad.˛-->'''Tychus''': Hey Hey Hey, We need that thing! Don't trash it!˛** Raynor will let the player have it if the player used the drill to attack a terran unit or structure.˛-->'''Raynor''': Those are our guys you idiot! Watch it with that thing!˛** You can even turn the laser on the critters walking around. They explode into feathers the moment the laser touches them.˛----
