  • 80's Dan: Automan:

    • This exchange after a street light with a lady's voice let's Automan pass:

    Dan: That streetlight had a woman's voice, that clearly means it has a vagina.

  • 80's Dan: World Games:
    • The Opening with ROB confident that his letter will be one of many Mrs. Crabtree gets, thus keeping her husband from getting suspiscous.... only for Dan of all people to point out she doesn't act and that his peeping doesn't count.

    • After ROB sees them playing the NES
    ROB: What are you doing with my sex box?
    Dolly: Dammit, ROB, is that why it smells like battery acid?
    Dan: It's okay Dolly. Belive it or not ROB's sex juice is the only thing that can get it started on the first try.
    ROB: Her name is Nessie... and can we quietly change the subject?

    • "I used to hang out in a lot of bathhouses in the seventies. I'm kind of afriad of large men in diapers."
  • 80's Dan: Hot to Trot:
    • During Travis' griping about Dan and R.O.B.
    Travis: I don't like the way that robot looks at you. I think he has X-Ray vision.
    (cut to R.O.B.)
    R.O.B.: I can also hear upstairs.
    Travis: Oh. No wonder it's terrible.
    Dan: And just what do you have against Oingo Boingo?
    Travis: Nothing I guess, they were good in Back to School.
    Dan: Uh-huh. That's what I thought.
    Dolly: "Most of the time he was on screen I kept wondering if he forgot to take a dump before they started rolling."
    • After R.O.B. takes a dump (which comes out as a battery), Dan goes into a fit of knee-slapping laughter:
    Travis: See Dan? Your reaction there? That's why you like Hot To Trot.
    • The discussion of the villan's teeth

    R.O.B. I still have nightmares about what he did to Polly Pocket.
    • R.O.B.: "Why did he have to sneak a horse around in the first place? He was rich and it was The '80s. It was his god-given right to own a horse."
    • R.O.B's indecison on the ending of his fan-script for Hot To Trot 2: Stable Condition.
      R.O.B.: I'm not sure weather Don should win the medal of freedom for saving the president from a buffalo stampede or die in a mine shaft explosion.
      • And his reason for writing it: he wants to occupy his time doing something no one else could conceivably be doing.
    • "You're thinking too hard about it, they just wanted Burgess Meridith as a fly."
    • The Reveal that they've been talking about Hot To Trot for 8 hours.
    • "I'd stick petrified dog turds in my eyes just to make you feel uncomfortable."

  • In the 80s Dan review of Halloween III: Season of the Witch, the gang is visited by the Ghostbusters of Chicago, who proceed to rob them blind. While ecstatic Dan does nothing have fangasms over meeting the "real" Ghostbusters saying lines from Ghostbusters II.
    • Dolly lamenting why Dan hasn't complimented her costume. Prompting Dan to say that it's the best Donald Duck crossdressing he's ever seen. The Death Glare Dolly gives Dan is simply priceless.
    • Dan's constant grumbling about the film... for the sole reason of not having Micheal Meyers.
      • Dan finally warming up to the film at the end... only to reveal he's done some coke while they weren't looking.
      • Dan's justification for why he didin't watch the Halloween III trailer pointing out it was a sepreate universe from the previous films:
    Dan: No one watched trailers in the 80's! We were too busy getting handy j's from the girl peddling Jolt Cola in the lobby.
    Travis: If by "we" you mean you. I don't think everyone had the same experinces in the 80's as you did.
    Dan: Look in the glassy stares in your parents eyes next time you see them. Trust me, we all snorted from the same mirrors.
    • After learning what film they're watching next:
    Dan: Huh, Vampire's Kiss. I'm going to have to call my contact and get us 20 more kilos of the fun stuff.
    R.O.B.: It's me you idiot! I'm your contact!
    • Dan's disapointment at the fairly quiet night the gang's having instead of the wild drugs and sex parties he had in the 80's.
