The film Evolution:

  • "There's always time for lubricant!"
  • "IT'S IN MEEEEEE!!!"
  • From the same scene:
    Ira: Cut him open, let's get this thing!
    Harry: Cut me open?! There goes your Christmas gift, Judas!
    Dr. Paulson: We might have to amputate. (grabs a surgical saw)
    Harry: Whoa, Doc! Don't take the leg! Ira, don't let them take my leg.
    Ira: Isn't there anything else you can do? He thinks he's an athlete.
    Nurse Tate: Doctor, look!
    Dr. Paulson: It's headed for his testicles!
    Harry: Take it! Take it!! TAKE THE LEG!!

  • Alison: Can we get you anything? Do you need anything?
    Harry: Ice cream... I'd like an ice cream, please.
    Alison: Yeah? What flavour?
    Harry: It doesn't matter. It's for my ass.
  • Harry's reaction to the field of dead alien birds... and Ira's reaction to Harry's reaction...
    Ira: (Looks at Harry with a bemused look)
  • This scene, full stop. Somehow, the comic timing between Stifler, Dr. Lee and Agent Mulder melds into something unearthly yet full of lulz. The fact that Harry is almost completely and utterly deadpan throughout just sells it.
    Wayne: (steps up to microphone) Ka-kaw. Ka-kaw? Ka-kaaaw! Ah-ah-ee-ee-tookie-tookie-tookie-tookie-ka-kaw-ka-kaw-kaw-kaw!
    Harry: Wayne, I think we've established that "Ka-Kaw Ka-Kaw" and "Tookie-Tookie" don't work.
    Wayne: (sheepish) Right. Sorry.
    (After a short while, he starts singing into the mic, to the utter disbelief of Ira and Harry)
    Wayne: (singing) You are so beautiful, to meeee... (Ira and Harry stare at him)
    Ira: ...Step back, Harry, I'm gonna shoot him.
    Harry: Uh-uh, stand down! I'm gonna kill this one myself.
    Wayne: You are so beautiful, to meeee...
    Harry: Wayne, please stop singing because you are embarassing me.
    Wayne: (right at him) CAN'T YOU SEEEE-EEEEE!
    Harry: [upon hearing that his singing is working] Yeah, sing, sing! Rub some funk on it!
    • Even better even better. After killing the alien, the movie cuts to Harry, Ira and Wayne having an absolute party in their car singing along to "Play that Funky Music", CLEARLY high off their asses on the adrenaline.
  • Ira's "fruit basket" for General Woodman.note

  • Harry holding the bottle of Head and Shoulders shampoo backwards during the commercial at the end.
  • {After the dragon alien barfs up its eggsac}
    Harry: Mazel tov, it's a boy!
  • Harry, upon seeing the "dog" alien dead: "That dog is all ass."
  • The entire sequence at the end, especially Harry getting sucked into the giant alien's ass.
    • Not to mention when Ira finally pries him out;
    Harry: Don't you EVER tell anyone where I've been!
  • Ira: If I was a giant nasty alien bird in a department store, where would I be?
    Harry: Lingerie.
    Ira: Not you, the bird.
    Harry: ...Lingerie!
  • Deke and Danny's hilariously bad science papers:
    Ira: Last night as I was grading papers, I came across two gems both entitled "Cells are Bad" and both with just one paragraph which I unfortunately committed to memory: "Cells are bad. My uncle lives in a cell. It's ten foot by twelve and he has to read the same boring old magazine everyday. The end."
  • The General explains how to kill the alien.
    General Woodman: With napalm. Lots and lots of napalm.
  • Ira and Allison sneak out of the awards ceremony.
    Allison: Your big moment, huh? You wouldn't want to miss this for anything.
    Beat, Ira looks at her, the two back away from the line quietly
    • Then the governor notices they're missing.
    Governor: And finally, Doctors Ira Kane and Allison Reed, whose tireless efforts and research and academic findings led to the- [notices they're missing] [looks to Harry]
    Harry: I think he's giving her a bit of the Kane madness.
    Governor: [Beat] Oh.
  • It's VERY blink or you'll miss it, but when Harry introduces himself to the General, the General mistakenly calls him "Mr. Black" and Harry corrects him that his last name is Block, the General apologizes, and then Harry gives Ira this incredible "are you fucking serious" look.
  • Pretty much the entire sequence of them re-claiming a sample from the crash site, but especially Harry teasing Ira about his attraction to Allison, and the line that's a minor Memetic Mutation and Trope Namer:
    Ira: (referring to one of the crab-like aliens) Go ahead, snag one.
    Harry: "Snag one?!" I've seen this movie before; The Black Dude Dies First. YOU snag it.

The game Evolution:

  • There's a kid named Nash behind Chain's bus home who's very infatuated with Linear. He doesn't really like Mag hanging out with her so much. Once Linear gets kidnapped, Nash doesn't see her with Mag one time and thus accuses him of finally selling her to pay off his huge debt.
  • The cutscene where Pepper is introduced, specifically when she realizes who Mag is... and mentions that she knows because all the adventurers know of the Launcher Family's debt.
  • The original version of World of Sacred Device has rougher yet humorous facial expression, especially during the scene where Mag and Linear meet Eugene.
  • Before escaping from the sinking ship, Eugene threatens to take Linear away to escape. Cue Mag's Cyframe Power Fist uppercutting Eugene into the sea.
  • The look on Eugene's face when he sees Linear's evolutia form. Is he climaxing or something?
    • He also has a funny look on his face the whole time you fight him on foot. He's clearly enjoying this.
  • If you talk to Pepper in the Museville bar, she'll tell you about how the other day the society worker Nina got Drunk on Milk and started dancing the Macarena on a table.
    • Also from the bar, Mag whining like a little kid when the bartender decides to give him water when you ask for a drink. Pepper gets even more annoyed given that she's an adult and very fond of drinking.
  • The game's flavor text in general is amusing, given how much of it there is; Chain and Mag's in particular give some interesting insight into their thoughts, including constant annoyance at their shortness.
  • Gre's Lethal Chef skills; Due to the way the game handles attack animations, it means that pretty much every enemy can't help but love Gre's cooking. Even Eugene in his mecha. Even Yurka and the Ulticannon.
