  • "Addison, my God!" "Isn't that redundant?"
  • "That man belongs in a pound..." "Pound of what?" *Maddie-glare*
  • "You're a wanton woman! A woman who's wantin'!"
  • The Dr. Seuss bit from "The Murder's In The Mail":
    David: "We're looking for a man with a mole on his nose."
    Maitre'D: "Mole on his nose?"
    Maddie: "A mole on his nose!"
    Maitre'D: "What kind of clothes?"
    Maddie: (to David) "What kind of clothes...?"
    David: (to Maitre'D) "What kind of clothes do you suppose?"
    Maitre'D: "What kind of clothes do I suppose would be worn by a man with a mole on his nose? Who knows?"
    David: "Did I happen to mention, did I bother to disclose, this man that we're seeking with a mole on his nose?/
    I'm not sure of his clothes or anything else except he's Chinese, a big clue by itself."
    Maddie: "How do you do that?"
    Maitre'D: "I'm sorry to say, I'm sad to report, I haven't seen anyone at all of that sort./
    Not a man who's Chinese with a mole on his nose with some kind of clothes that you can't suppose./
    SO...get away from this door and get out of this place/
    Or I'll have to hurt you...put my foot in your face."
    David: "Oh..!"
    Maddie: "Time to go!"
    David: "Time to go!" *hasty exit*
  • David-as-Petruchio in "Atomic Shakespeare," particularly his first line:
    David-as-Petruchio (to a buxom village girl): "ZOUNDS! What MOUNDS!"
    • After doing a huge Shakespearean speech, David slides down his sunglasses and tells the camera "didn't think I could pull it off, didja?"
    • The entire "Good Loving" number.

How well does it match the trope?
