- Every time he says the words "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukkah!" in a sarcastic context.
- His silently mouthing "what the fuck" during Alameda Slim's musical number in his Home on the Range review. And doing it again during his review of The Star Wars Holiday Special.
- Smeghead's response to the constantly changing camera angles in one of the scenes from Catwoman:
- In his commentary for Princess of Mars, he talks about ex-porn star Traci Lords who was underage and pretended to be 18 (though she did look 18 at the time apparently). When she was found out, many in the porn industry were scared because technically, they commited statutory rape and distributed child pornography. As Sean put it:Fortunately, they got off... let me rephrase that...
- From the Hercules in New York review: "Ahnold strong! You, weak!"
- In his Meet the Spartans review:
- When the inevitable sex scene occurs, the usual red "Pointless Sex Scene" flashes onto the screen (accompanied with band music playing), that is, until Not-Leonidas starts lifting his wife up and down. That is when these words in red start flashing, "Wait, what?" "Umm... pointless bench press scene?"
- After he says he's going to strangle the narrator if he finds him,Smeghead!Narrator: Much like Luca Brasi in The God —Smeghead: Shut up.
- The Running Gag from the introduction to the Krull review:Smeghead: Okay, class! Time for a pop quiz. What do you get when you combine sword and sorcery with science fiction?
[the Star Wars main title fanfare starts playing over the poster for A New Hope]
Smeghead: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait... [the music fades out] Good answer, but... not what I'm lookin' for. [thinks] Uh... okay, let's try this again. What do you get when you combine sword and sorcery with science fiction, and then... crank the stupid Up to Eleven?
[the Star Wars main title fanfare starts playing over a TV Guide listing for The Star Wars Holiday Special]
Smeghead: Hold it, hold it, hold it, stop, stop, stop... [the music fades out] Again: good answer, but still not what I'm lookin' for... [thinks again] Um... [snaps his fingers a few times] Okay. I think I got it. Sword and sorcery. Science fiction. Put 'em together. Add a heapin' helpin' o' herp-de-derp. And then, just for fun, let's throw in a few big name actors, like... Liam Neeson.
[the Star Wars main title fanfare starts playing over the poster for The Phantom Menace]
Smeghead: IT'S NOT STAR WARS! [the music stops] God!... Krull. The answer is Krull.
- From his Conan the Destroyer review:
- Smeghead attempting to say the word n***rnote , which results in a bleeping sound effect. And ultimately culminates in him trying to show the word, only for it to be shown as "n***r".
- "Fuck you, camel!"
- "Fuck you, cannibal!"
- The Queen offers to give Conan the one thing he wants the most: California.
- The drinking game "Take a shot every time someone walks by the camera or otherwise obstructs the shot" during Cliff De Young's scenes in the 2012: Doomsday review. The total gets to 9 before the captions tell us "Fuck it, just finish the bottle."
- Upon discovering that the big battle sequence of Breaking Dawn Part 2 was just a vision, he picks up a pillow, and proceeds to scream into it for over 35 minutes, according to the title cards.Title card: For the love of... just go to part 3/an ad break.
- Smeghead's celebration at the end of Breaking Dawn Part 2 for finishing the entire Twilight saga."And... that's it. [beat] That's it! It's over! I'm done! I SURVIVED THE TWILIGHT SAGA! Oh, thank you! Oh, oh what a joyous day this is! I'm finally done and I never have to deal with the works of Stephenie Meyer ever agaaaa- (noticeably deflates as the poster for The Host pops up onscreen) ...aaain. Fuck.
- Smeghead's celebration at the end of Breaking Dawn Part 2 for finishing the entire Twilight saga.
- In the review of The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure:
- The "Celebrites who need a paycheck: (number here)" Running Gag.
- The "flashback" where the host decides to watch the movie, only to be seen suffering from a seizure during the flapjacks song.
- Whenever he played a clip from Chappelle's Show of Rick James saying "Cocaine is a hell of a drug!" because it played whenever someone (Grandma Dotty, J. Edgar) span in circles fast.
- When he recognises Cloris Leachman, a horse whinnying immediately follows.
- When he called Toofie's pants falling down "comedy".
- "Ladder! Ladder!"
- His liking to Christopher Lloyd's cameo where he shouts out gibberish for no apparent reason. He found it so funny, it became his ringtone.
- His reaction to the scene in Sharknado where one of the protagonists slices a shark in half with a chainsaw:"[wide-eyed and pointing at the camera] Oh my god, that was awesome!"
- His Battlefield Earth review:
- Him making up his own subtitles for the Super Mario Bros. animated film. He even admits that he just couldn't resist doing it.
- In his After Earth review, Smeghead gets riled up enough to go on a rant and demands answers from the film. Cypher Raige then denies him said answers and orders him to sit down. Then Smeghead awkwardly obliges and sits in the corner for a moment before realizing what he was doing.
- His Spider-Man 3 review:
Peter: Thank you, but I'm fine, I don't need your help.
- "So we have one villain with a head injury and the other who is already stupid without one. We are off a great start!"

Smeghead: YOU IDIOT!!!
Jesus: ... What?
- When Eddie Brock prays to Jesus to kill Peter Parker at the Church, Smeghead starts imagining Jesus's answer:
Brock: J-Jesus? Is that you?
Jesus: Yes, Edward Brock Jr. It is I, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace, the King of the Jews, etc etc. Now, back to my question: what?
Brock: What do you mean?
Jesus: I mean "what", as in "what the fuck is wrong with you?"
Brock: I... I just really need you to kill Peter Parker!
Jesus: You want me to kill someone?
Brock: Peter Parker, yes.
Jesus: You... know I'm not a hitman, right?
Brock: Please? I really want him dead!
Jesus: Seriously, what part of "Thou Shall Not Kill" do you not understand?!
Brock: But he's ruined my life!
Jesus: This should be entertaining. Please elaborate.
Brock: He got me fired from my job!
Jesus: You mean the job you only got in the first place by committing fraud? Cry me a river.
Brock: And he stole my girl!
Jesus: Okay: first of all, Peter didn't steal anything; he didn't force Gwen to go out with him at gunpoint, that was her choice. And spoiler alert: their date didn't go well anyway. Also, for Dad's sake, you only went on one date with her yourself; she was never your girl to steal!
Brock: But —
Jesus: But nothing! Look, son, I know it sucks to see the girl you like go out with another guy; join the fucking club, we've all been there! But if she's ready to move on to someone else after one cup of coffee, then she was never that into you! No amount of moaning and bitching is going to fix that, nor will killing Peter Parker! Besides, my Dad put four billion vaginas on this planet; you can find another one. So quit whining, sack up, and sort your miserable life out!
Brock: (Beat) Sooooo... you'll think about it?
Jesus: ... I died on the cross for this?
(in faux-whiny voice) Spider-Man stole my girlfriend, waaaaaaaaah! (normal voice) Shut up, ya pansy!
- Later on, his impression of Eddie Brock.
- From his "Spock's Brain" review:Smeghead (as Kara): Oh my God! What shampoo does this man use? His hair is amazing!
Smeghead: No, no, no, no, no! Fuck you! You play the right clip or I swear to God I will end you!
- His reaction to the clip of Alternate Universe Spock yelling "Khan!" when he was listing the things that Lee Cronin was responsible for in Star Trek.
- His review of The Legend of Hercules:
- His reaction upon finding out that the film wasn't a Mockbuster made by The Asylum but an actual movie with an actual distributor.
- Also, his reaction upon finding out the budget of the movie after seeing a rather unconvincing background.

- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
- After discussing the outrage around Micheal Bay being involved, Smeghead clarifies he was only a producer and the actual director was Jonathan Liebesman, though people were still concerned.
- His irritation over Megan Fox playing April O'Neil:
- Smeghead mocks the name of not-Shredder Erik Sacks and his company:Smeghead: Wouldn't you love to do business with Sacks Industries? You know they will always give you great sacks! (Boos can be heard) Aw come on, you were all thinking it!
- While criticizing how disappointing Will Arnett's performance as Vernon is, Smeghead gets heavily confused by the fact there is a scene where he is inexplicably preparing a mustard parmesan sandwitch and wonders if this actually is a thing.
- His utter irritation over April calling her own journal for a camera crew after finding out the Foot are committing a huge burglary, and no one else.Smeghead: You know, you're a news reporter, this is potentially a big story, you want to make sure you document everything, I get that! But maybe, juuuust maybe, mind you, there's someone else you should call? Someone that might have a big interest in this massive bulglary going on? Someone like— Oh, jeez, I don't know, let me think, Uh— THE POLICE?! (shot of the "The Police") Oh, ha ha ha— fuck off.
- April, much to his consternation, decides despite already being on probation from two past transgressions to tell her boss that the vigilantes who have been operating are her former pet turtles who are now ten feet tall, can speak English, and are ninjas.Smeghead: Naturally, in the real world, if you were her boss, you'd fire her ass on the spot! But of course in the movie, her boss... fires... her... on the spot. I'll be damned! Something happened in this movie that actually made sense!
- Him going over the Shredder's and Sacks' plan, describing it as so stupid it makes the 80s series Shredder's plans look brilliant by comparison. He proceeds to list all the problems with it, including the fact they apparently intend to use the Turtles' Blood antidote as a bargaining chip without even having tested it, propagating his deadly gas from his own tower as the epicenter which would make it incredibly easy to track things back to him (not to mention the toxin is a clearly visible red mist) and finally Sacks having the end goal of becoming "rich, like, stupid rich" when he already is rich enough to own his own corporation, fund his private militia and live in a castle in the hills.Smeghead: And if you want to rule the city, why does it have to involve poisoning people? Can't you just bribe the local politicians like everybody else?
- Then Sacks gets easily taken down by April and Vernon because he didn't bother bringing guards along for security.Smeghead: That man is stupid. Like, stupid stupid.
- As soon as Biz Markie appears in Sharknado 2: The Second One, Smeghead starts singing quite possibly the whitest cover of "Just a Friend" you will ever hear.

- While talking about his childhood memories of watching Jem while reviewing the film adaptation, Smeghead suddenly appears wearing lensless glasses, a trilby, and a plaid shirt:Smeghead: We were watching little girls' cartoons before it was cool. Suck it, bronies. (drinks Patch Blue Ribbon)
- When the characters go to get Jem's earrings from Erica's office, he comments that the safe's password is Erica's name. Smeghead says that seems believable. He then explains that he actually does believe it, since he worked in computers for years and says that people come up with stupidly obvious passwords.
- Also, on the subject of Jem's love interest, who is supposed to be a college intern: "Muthafucka, you look thirty."
- In his review of RoboCop 3, he mocks how Obviously Evil Mr. Fleck is:Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go beat my wife, club a baby seal and burn down an orphanage. God, I love being evil!
- Upon learning that Chris Evans is partly at fault for how annoying Johnny Storm was thanks to his improvised dialogue, Smeghead tells a picture of Evans as Johnny that he's the worst. The picture then morphs into Evans as Captain America and he instantly forgives him.Smeghead: Aw, I can't stay mad at you!
- While discussing how the movie only had two action sequences (one and half technically as the Brooklyn Bridge scene was really the Fantastic Four cleaning up their own mess), Smeghead tells the movie that they could've at least squeezed one more act of heroism somewhere.Ben Grimm (to a bunch of scared kids): Don't do drugs.Smeghead: That doesn't count!
- While discussing how the movie only had two action sequences (one and half technically as the Brooklyn Bridge scene was really the Fantastic Four cleaning up their own mess), Smeghead tells the movie that they could've at least squeezed one more act of heroism somewhere.

- From his review of Hillary's America:
Dinesh D'Souza: What was my real crime?
- His snarking at one of Dinesh D'Souza's rhetorical questions:
Smeghead: Bestiality? (beat) Hey, if you ask a stupid question...
Dinesh D'Souza: I think I might be the stupidest criminal in the history of American jurisprudence.
Smeghead: Every once in a while, the truth sneaks out.
The early Democratic Party was filled with all sorts of cocks! Here a cock, there a cock, everywhere a cock cock, E-I-E-I-O!
- When talking about the fact that the early Democratic Party was indeed filled with jerks as depicted in the film:
But you know who is guilty of criminal wrongdoing? (beckons to a picture of D'Souza with a big grin on his face) This guy!
- His mocking D'Souza for implying that the Clinton Foundation's failure to provide jobs in the wake of the 2010 Haiti earthquake was due to criminal wrongdoing when he himself is actually guilty of criminal wrongdoing:
- From his review of Planet of the Apes (2001):
- From the second part of review of Plan 9 from Outer Space, he stares at disbelief at the camera at hearing the phrase "atmospheric conditions in outer space." At first he simply repeats the sentence multiple times, unable to comprehend the stupidity of that phrase. Then, he falls apart into incoherent babbling, ultimately grabbing a copy of the book The Disaster Artist, finally thwacking himself in the face repeatedly with it while repeating several lines from movies and TV:THWACK! "Be Excellent to Each Other"THWACK! "Would You Like a Jelly Baby?"THWACK! "Autobots...Roll Out"THWACK! "I never drink...wine"THWACK! "Pie Jesu Dominae..."THWACK! "WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' BADGES!"
- He eventually stops and apologizes and explains that his brain just froze for a moment.
- In his review of Inchon:
- Initially at a loss to describe Laurence Olivier's infamous Trope Namer performance for Money, Dear Boy, he eventually realizes it bears an unnerving resemblance to Tommy Wiseau."OH DEAR GOD!"
- He mentions that sometimes the title of the movie is done with an exclamation point. He then states that he tends to read titles like those by shouting them, demonstrating it with examples such as MOTHER! or AIRPLANE! or WHY DID YOU LET PIERCE BROSNAN SING?!
- Initially at a loss to describe Laurence Olivier's infamous Trope Namer performance for Money, Dear Boy, he eventually realizes it bears an unnerving resemblance to Tommy Wiseau.
- In his review of Leonard Part 6:
The following video contains scenes of a once respected comedian's dignity imploding.
- The opening text is darkly funny:
But he turned out to be a horrible person, so enjoy the schadenfreude.
"You thought you were getting a spy movie! Instead, you're getting The Cosby Show! Except it's a version of The Cosby Show that's completely devoid of humor."
- When describing how the movie practically grinds to a halt:
- Smeghead goes on a bit of a discussion about offensive comedies when talking about Andrew "Dice" Clay and uses Blazing Saddles as a prime example. As expected, he starts off with "If you haven't seen Blazing Saddles"...then promptly slaps the viewer and angrily asks what's the matter with those who haven't seen the film.
- In the Hudson Hawk review, Smeghead describes Kit Kat as played by David Caruso as one of the few positive things about the film, although he finds the lack of explanation for why he never speaks frustrating, and is equally baffled by the Mayflowers' sudden decision to kill him just before the film's climax:
