     How Superman Should Have Ended 
  • This HISHE features an early sign that this version of Superman likes to show off; when Lex Luthor challenges him that he can't get both of the missiles that Lex has targeted at the San Andreas fault, Superman proves him wrong by speeding off, only to show up back at Lex's lair seconds later... with both missiles.
    Superman: These missiles?
    Lex: Holy crap!
    Superman: Are these the missiles you were talking about, Lex?
    Lex: Yes!
    Superman: What?
    Lex: Yes, I said those were the ones!
    Superman: I mean, I flew around the earth a few times, but these were the only giant missiles I could find. But you said I couldn't possibly catch them both, so these must not be the missiles you were talking about.
    Lex: Yes, those were the ones, all right!? You win! Please, just get them out of here!
    Superman: You diseased maniac!

     How Spider-Man 3 Should Have Ended 
  • How Sandman's transformation would have gone had the sand-mutation scientists just done their jobs properly:
    Scientist 1: There's a change in the silicone mass.
    Scientist 2: Yeah, it's probably just a bird.
    Scientist 3: Here's a bright idea: Why don't you make SURE it's a bird before you mutate the crap out of something just because you were too lazy to safely run this nighttime sand-mutation experiment?
    Scientist 2: Ugh, fine. [safety barrier is lifted, looks out into the pit] That is a big bird down there...kind of looks like a guy. Oh, wait, it IS a guy down there!
    [cut to Flint Marco being put in a police van]
    Flint: You- you don't understand! I have a daughter, she's sick! That makes it okay for me to break the law! I'm not a bad person!

  • Harry Osborn's butler FINALLY decides to tell him the truth about his father's death, and how it is apparent that Spider-Man didn't kill him. Harry immediately fires him for knowing this the whole time and picking now to tell him.
    Butler: I thought this would be the best time to tell you the truth.
  • The entire conversation between Venom and Spidey near the end, filled to the BRIM with Lampshade Hanging and Spidey being completely Genre Savvy:
    Venom: [takes off symbiote mask to reveal Eddie Brock's face] Hey, Parker.
    Spider-Man: Eddie! ...wait, why do you have a scary Venom face if you're just gonna peel it back when you talk?
    Venom: Because this way I get more face time!
    Spider-Man: That's lame.
    Venom: YOU'RE lame! And now I'm gonna kill your girlfriend!
    Spider-Man: [completely unfettered] Oh, there's a big surprise. Out of all the dastardly plots you could put together, you wanna threaten my girlfriend. Just like EVERY other villain I've encountered.
    Venom: Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
    Spider-Man: Seriously? You rush in here like you can take ME? This is my third movie! Spider-Man TRES, amigo! You think they're gonna kill me off!? NO! Look, do you know of ANY movies where they kill the title character off at the end?
    Venom: Donnie Darko...Old Yeller...Romeo & Juliet...
    Spider-Man: Yeah. I didn't think so.
    Harry: [flying to where the climatic battle is taking place] Hang on, Pete! I'm coming for ya, ol' buddy, ol' pal, ol' friend!
    Spider-Man: I'm just saying. There's only one way this is going to go down. It happens every time. We'll fight for a bit, you'll tear my mask. But in the end, I'm just gonna leap out of the way, and you're gonna do something that makes you kill yourself!
    Venom: Or maybe I'm just gonna kill you and your girlfriend, because I'm awesome and you've met your match!
    Scientist 2: [releases bird] Fly away, pretty bird. No sand mutation for you tonight.
    Harry: Oh, I can't wait to help my best friend in the whole wide world!
    Spider-Man: I promise you! Things are already in motion! You still have a chance to walk away here!
    Harry: Here I come, Pete! I'll help ya save the day! No matter what, I'll help ya— BIIIRD!! [gets hit in the face by the bird the scientist just released, and crashes into the construction frame. Pumpkin bombs go flying from the glider]
    Venom: Quit talking like you're in control, Parker! You're just a bug trapped in the web I—
    Spider-Man: Aaand leap... [jumps out of the way of the pumpkin bombs]
    Venom: Aw, dang, he was telling the truth. [gets blown up]
    • Even better is when Peter says "Just like EVERY other villain I've encountered", MJ is shown sitting in the taxi that's suspended hundreds of feet in the air with a thoroughly impatient look on her face.
  • Batman and Superman see Peter, acting like a douchebag thanks to the Symbiote, strutting past the café:
    Superman: What the heck was that?
    Batman: Peter Parker just did a Saturday Night Fever strut across our window.
    Superman: I know, but...why?
    Batman: I'm not sure. But I was afraid something like this would happen.
    Superman: What do you mean?
    Batman: Uh, have you seen this?
    [Batman shows Supes a video on his Bat-phone of Spidey doing an extremely camp dance to a dance remix of the 1960's theme]
    Superman: Ugghh... [facepalm]
  • Mary-Jane's reason for breaking up with Peter? He cries too much. And the whole time she does so, Peter can't stop crying.

     How Predator Should Have Ended 
  • Dutch appears very filthy in "How To Survive An Alien Attack," a PSA explaining that after he sets up booby traps for aliens, he likes to hide in the mud and watch the aliens get trapped.
    Interviewer: That doesn't smell like mud.
    Dutch: You don't smell like mud!
  • Dutch and Co. throwing away their weapons when they realize that the Predator didn't attack the girl because she wasn't armed, so killing her wouldn't be sporting. This is followed by the Predator trying, and failing, to get them to arm themselves.
  • Dutch's Oh, Crap! moment when he realizes the chopper is armed:
    Dutch: There are weapons on the choppa!
    Cue the Predator holding a very big sword leaping towards them as the clip ends.

     How The Empire Strikes Back Should Have Ended 
  • Vader walking around his ship, telling everyone around that he has a son.
    Emperor: I have no doubt this boy is the offspring of Anakin Skywalker.
    Vader: What? I have a son!?
    Emperor: [confused] No, I said Anakin Skywalker has a son. You are Darth Vad—
    Vader: I have a son! This is wonderful! I must see him! [leaves the room]
    Emperor: [ignored] Wait, where are you going?
    Vader: [goes around] Hey, everyone! Have you heard the news? I'm a father! Woohoo! I have a son, stormtroopers! I have a son, asteroids! Hey, bounty hunters, guess what, I have a son, did you know that? I have a son, little droid that drives around the hallways!

    Boba Fett: Yes.
    Vader: You already knew? Who told you? Quit standing around and get back to work. [cut to other characters/things again] I have a son, little droid that drives around the hallways! [as the Star Destroyer is entering the hyperspace] I have a son, lightspeee—WHOA! [cut to Cloud City where Vader talks with Compelling Voice] Greetings, Cloud City. How are you? Well, I'm doing fantastic, thank you for asking. Because I just found out I have a son! You may commence with the pleasantries. [Cloud City citizens have WTF expression. Cut to the carbonite-frozen Han Solo] I have a son, Captain Solo, who is now frozen in carbonite and can't really hear me. HAHA!
  • And when Luke jumps off of the bottom of Bespin after rejecting Vader's We Can Rule Together offer, Vader instead catches him with the Force and comically dangles him upside down:
    Vader: Oh, hang on. Where do you think you're going?
    Luke: AW, COME ON!
    Vader: This isn't a negotiation.
    Luke: Let me go!
    Vader: I'm your father, and I say we're going home.
    Luke: You're the worst dad EVER!
    Vader: More like the most powerful dad ever! [chuckles]
