    • Also, when somewhat-less-mad-than-regular scientists Agatha and Gilgamesh are thrust into the stereotype of their role, they tend towards the line "...and I can live with that!". (Things they've been able to live with thus far have included death rays, ranting at underlings like a cheap actor, and controlling an entire city and its army via a mix of mind control, symbiosis, and shared insanity.)

  • The Unspeakable Vault (of Doom): The shoggies reaction to pretty much anything is "Oooh! Sooo coool!", but admittedly they are as dumb as you expect brainless pink goo to be.
