- "This message will self-destruct in one second." "Huh?" (BOOM!!!)
- "OOOOHOHOHOHO, YOU GOT ICE CREAM ON MY FACE! OHOHO, WHAT A SPECTACLE! IT'S STILL ON MY FACE! I SHALL REMEMBER THIS FOREVER, AS ICE CREAM DAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!"
- Critic lampshading how Arnold is an Invincible Hero and One-Man Army. He starts out by showing Ahnold owning the mooks. Then he shows a bomber flying at him. The camera cuts to Arnold, and the plane crashes and explodes. Then there's a clip of charging Mûmakil from The Lord of the Rings: cut to Arnold, they all fall over in a screaming, armored-elephant heap. Then he shows the Death Star...
- Critic wildly firing his gun in random directions, including at his own head, and still somehow hitting the random mooks from the film.
- The opening sequence, which plasters Doug's wonderful mug over various posters from other Ah-nold movies, all set to the Stupid Statement Dance Mix of "Put That Cookie Down".
- "Heh heh. 'Dead tired.' She doesn't get it now but when she does she's going to laaaaugh "
- "Oh yeah. You like watching two people doin' it while Arnold Schwarzenegger and some random black guy are fighting in the background? Our research says that at least 1% of the population does. That's why we're presenting 'Some Like It Rough'. Because we know somebody gets off on this."
- "Okay, this is just a competition of who can make the sillier face now!"
- "Captain... No 'splash'!"
- Arnold: You're a funny guy, Sully. I like you. That's why I'm gonna kill you last. YEEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!
- YOU HAVE TO CALL COLLEEEEECT! IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY AND IS SO MUCH CHEAPER FOR THE OTHER CALLER!
- "Hey Sully, remember when I said I'd kill you last?" "THAT'S RIGHT, MATRIX; YOU DID!!!" "I Lied."
- "HOLY SHIT THAT WAS AWESOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo...!"
- "This is starting to look more like a Jackass stunt."
- "Dude! Do you know how much preparation I had to put into that set up? You're a freaking a-hole!"
- His cracks about the soundtrack.
- 'Hello, this is your Captain speaking, asking for you to put your seats in the upright positions. We also ask you to NOT knock the person sitting beside you out, and then snap their neck, tucking them in and making them look as though they're sleeping. Thank you.'
- The "Arnold!" song. No, not the "Put that cookie DAUN!" one.
- "ARNOOOOLD!" "HE'S PUTTING THINGS INTO THIIIINGS."
- "Oh, I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay/I sleep all night, and apparently I wear women's clothing. Ya."
- "But luckily the flight attendant is here to return your seats and tray tables to their upright—KICK YOUR FUCKING ASS!!!" (KABOOM!!!)
- "Mommy, I want some ice-cream, some cookies, and I want it now, now now now now NOW!!!"
- Neo's reaction to the main character's name being John Matrix:Neo: Woah!
- This bit:Bennett: I'm gonna KILL YOU NOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!
Critic: (chuckling) Oh my God, did he just orgasm?
- His reaction to the freaky Ahnold baby. The best part: When the Critic returns to his seat after vomiting, he starts to speak but can only squeeze out one word before breaking down again:Critic: So... (puts hand on face) God... (sobs) Continue.
- The scene plays again, and in the next scene, we find that the Critic is in a hospital room.Doctor: In all my years, I've never seen anything like it: twenty straight hours of marathon projectile vomiting.
Nurse: Geez! So what do you recommend, doc?
Doctor: Well, certainly no more watching of Junior, that much is certain.
Nurse: Well, he does need to finish the review.
Doctor: Well then, certainly no more watching of that scene. By the way, did you turn the TV off?
Nurse: No, I thought you did.
(from inside the room, the Ahnold baby scene is heard, followed by the Critic vomiting even more)
Doctor: (looking quite grossed out; to nurse) Your turn to clean it up.
- And then after all of that:Critic: (completely nonchalant) All right, back to the review.
- The scene plays again, and in the next scene, we find that the Critic is in a hospital room.
- Also, the Critic getting his own Big-Lipped Alligator Moment. In which he throws in a picture of Chuck Bass.
- Hey kids, let's play "find the joke", with Dora the Explorer!
- And, of course, the reasons why men couldn't get pregnant. Of course, there are those nasty morals and the body thing, what with men not having vaginas, for instance, but it's just the tip of the iceberg.
- Full list - It's morally insane. Men don't have vaginas. Men don't have uteruses. You'd be playing genetic Monopoly. No man would volunteer unless doing it for a movie role. There'd be a lot more complaining. Abortions would skyrocket. EVERY child would be left behind. Men would never take care of themselves properly. A man could get pregnant just by jerking off. Jesus would cry. God knows what kind of mutations would arise. This would probably be some form of incest. Every man would have his tubes tied. If a baby kicks, the man would probably kick back. No man is going through a friggin' C-section. Men are horrible at throwing baby showers. No man could resist alcohol during pregnancy. In fact, they'd probably drink more. No man is wearing a mumu [sic]. We'd just look silly. Our solution to losing the baby weight would be "Losing the baby." No man would ever have sex again if they knew a baby was coming out of it — excuse me — out of THEM! Men have no practice. Men have no patience. Men have no...just fuck it, we're not doing it!
- Even better are these two lines:Critic: So Devito finally convinces him to get off the plane and get himself pregnant. (pause) That- that's no small feat. But Devito still needs an egg to implant into Arnold. And a vagina. AND A FUCKING UTERUS!... okay, I digress.
- And:Critic: Arnold finally goes into labor, as does Devito's ex-wife, he gives birth through... squeezing it out his penis, I have no idea note ... and he becomes the happiest papa-mama who ever lived.
Conan The Barbarian
- "Oh, no, she's pulling me into Avatar! The visuals will be stunning, but the story will be absolute bullshit!"
- "Guys, I told you to watch the place while I was a snake! Can't a guy just be a snake for five minutes without something going wrong?"
- "Well, gee, when you put it like that...FUCK YOU!"
- His impersonation of Mako at the beginning of the review, that is all. Complete with him rushing to do the "worshipping Mako" pose from the Sidekicks review as soon as he mentions the name.
- "Conan The Cummer...Eww." Made even better with the Arnold clip from Pumping Iron where he compares working out to cumming, and the Critic has the most horrified expression on his face.Critic: ... Good for you.
Witch: What is it that you seek?
- And the Call-Back later in the episode:
Conan: A symbol... part of a shield. Two snakes coming together.
Arnold Schwarzenegger: Cumming in the gym, Im getting the feeling of cumming at home...
Critic: Okay, knock it off.
- "Ooh! I'd like to ask her for directions!"
- After the whole "Asking directions bit," his reaction to the woman disappearing.
- When Conan gets nailed to the cross:Critic: To make matters worse, he's nailed right next to Eric Idle!
Eric Idle: (sings) Always look on the bright side of life... (Conan turns his head away from him)
- "Forgive them, Crom. They know not what they do."
- "Behold! We have reached Jerusalem! Wait, what?"
- His reaction to James Earl Jones turning into a snake. His lack of emotion makes it even better."....Well that's just silly."
- Wheel! Of! Torture!
- "Push wheel? Look, all I understand is wheels. Please, do you have a wheel? May I push it?"
- On that note:"Thank you, Sir. May I have a wheel now?"
"Will you shut up about the wheel?!"
- And earlier:"Wait, I said give the children candy, not chain them to a wheel of torture for the rest of their lives!" (beat) "How did you even hear that?"
- On that note:
- When James Earl Jones urges a woman to jump off a cliff through his Cult of Personality, Goofy screams. Even if you don't know where it's from, it's still hilarious.YAAH-HO-HO-HWEEE!
- When Conan is ordered to be crucified, it cuts away to Hedley Lamar dismissing the idea as "Too Jewish."
- The scene where Conan beheads James Earl Jones and then throws his head down the steps, dubbed over with "Ow. Ow. Owowowowowow."
- Critic's response with Conan's prayer that if Crom doesn't listen, then to hell with him: Imagining Conan praying to Crom for a chipmunk action figure from a happy meal, and if he gets a chippette... then to hell with Crom. He pulls a chippette.Critic: (beat) TO HELL WITH YOU!!
Conan The Destroyer

- "Who said I was a woman?"
- "How do you attract a man?" "I spear him, gut him, then wear him."
- Sex Talk with Weasley Guy.
- Regarding the monster at the end..."It looks like a Rankin-Bass stop motion puppet that was shat out by Swamp Thing."
- Similarly..."Boy, I feel a little weird saying this, but Conan is literally fighting a one-eyed, one-horned giant purple people eater. And you know what? It sure looks strange to me."
- The brief shot of the poster for Alvin and the Chipmunks during the scene where Mako's character uses his magic to have the leader of Dagoth worshippers see the thing he fears the most.
- "The God of Nonchalantness..."
- The teasing about the magic spell that simply makes a "ding" sound is notable too.Lightning Mage Critic: My magic produces lightning! (uses force lightning)
Fire Mage Critic: MY Magic produces FIRE! (creates a small burst of flame)
Ding Magic Critic: MY magic goes... (DING!)
Other Mage Critics: (unimpressed)
Ding Magic Critic: (produces several more dings before getting force lightning in the face)
- "Hey! It's the Burger King's mutilated brother! ... Daniel."
- When the wizard turns into a "hideous monster" to kidnap the princess. (cue Reading Rainbow theme)
End of Days
- Chester A. Bum as a priest.
- The Mad Tea Party scene.
- "I got no strings, to hold me down..." "Deh ah no strings on MEEEE!!!"
- As Arnold goes trough the bum priest's Room Full of Crazy with crosses scribbled on the walls:Critic: Looks like Mel Gibson's house.
- "NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!"
- The return of Santa Christ! Who is also afraid of the CAAAAT!
- "3-1-20". Which spells out CAAAAAT!
- His name for the 'drink'.Critic: Big deal. Who hasn't has a Coffee-Beer-Pepto-Bismol-Chinese-Food-And-Pizza Slurpie. Or as I like to call it...Cbpbcfps.
- This exchange...Marge Francis: The guy doesn't have a tongue.
Critic: (imitating Arnold) NEITHER DO I, BUT THAT DOESN'T STOP ME FROM SPEAKING, AGHAGHAGHAGH!!!
- And this one...Kevin Pollak: Hey Arnold, say it.
Kevin Pollak: Come on, just say it!
Kevin Pollak: I'll pay you 50 bucks if you say it.
Schwarzenegger: (sighs) Get to the choppa.
Kevin Pollak: Haha, you just made me splooge.
- "Alright, who crucified the patient?" (points offscreen) "Mark?"
- "Christine, please tell your mommy to stop beating me up! It hurts!"
- When Arnold encourages a subway driver to speed up and hit the villain: "IT'S OKAY! IT'S THE DEVIL!"
- Hello, random boob shot. Goodbye random boob shot.
- This line:The Devil: Oh boy, I'm really bad at this. I can see why I was a fallen angel, 'cause I'm fallin' over everyth— (KABOOM)
- "GAH, HEARTBURN!!!"
- When the patients is crucified.NC: Maybe he did it himself?! Oh, yeah! These self-crucifixions happen all the time, don't they?! Woman down the street? Crucifies herself all the time, I have to nail her too the floor to stop her. Not literally...
- When Satan randomly kisses a woman in a restaurant:Husband: Hey, what the hell are you—
(Satan turns around and glares at the husband)
Critic (as husband) Whoa, Gabriel Byrne? I- I'm sorry. Continue groping my wife. Hey, everybody Gabriel Byrne is groping my wife! This is the happiest day of my li—
100th Episode: Battlefield Earth
- His attempt to do a clip show; the clip he uses rebels against him.
- Ma-Ti's conversation with Present Critic:No, Critic. There is one movie that you have overlooked. A Sci Fi film that is so terrible, it makes my nipples tingle with fear!
- Not to mention his over the top presentation of the movie, as well as the Critic's equally-over-the-top reaction.
- Shaming the Present Critic:Ma-Ti: What happened to you, man? You used to have strong, plentiful balls!
Critic: I do! My balls are still strong! And extremely plentiful!
- "It's hard to believe that such a handsome man could become even 'handsomener'...'handsomen'...prettier." And later: "I am your Jesus."
- Spoony as Terl. 'Nuff said.
- The Critic introducing Forest Whitaker as "Forest What-The-Fuck-Am-I-Doing-Here".
- Critic has such an epic lapse in sanity from the sheer stupidity of this movie, that the camera has to speed up just to contain all his kicking and screaming.Critic: (holds his head in his hands and groans) So, this military force of a planet, that has an atmosphere made out of radiation, has never had an explosion? This race is more gun-happy than Charlton Heston's SHOOTING GALLERY, and yet there's s NEVER BEEN AN EXPLOSION ON THIS PLANET?! They could look at a KITTEN, and somehow they'd make it blow up! THESE GUYS ARE CRAZY! THERE'S NEVER BEEN AN EXP-WHAT?! YOU EXPECT ME TO BELIEVE THAT?! THIS IS STUPID! THIS IS STUPID! STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!' (speeds up as the Critic goes into meltdown mode)
- After that breakdown, he realizes that perhaps he has been attacking the movie from the wrong angle. He then proceeds to beat himself in the head with a hammer, though a rather amusing picture hides the actual beating. The result? "Dulhulhul...I like spaceships."
- And for anyone who was wondering just what exactly was being said in the rant, here it is slowed down.
- Him mocking the angle shots — by having him in an angle shot, trying to prevent himself from slipping. And then promptly failing.Critic: Perhaps we could venture forth and find new worlds to explore, whaa— (goes offscreen)
- "D'oh! If only we weren't on a planet where everything was at an angle, we could shoot straight!"
- (imitating Travolta) "The very idea that I would go after a woman! (Beat) Me. John Travol—I, I mean, Terl the alien man. Yes."
- After Planet Psychlo explodes, cut to Daffy Duck/Duck Dodgers pushing Marvin the Martian off the tiny remains of the planet. "Thisph planet ain't big enough for the two of usph. Tpho, off you go!" (shove) In that same vein, the Yosemite Sam clip earlier on: "Gold, GOLD, GOOOOOOLLLLLLDDDDDD!!!"
- The Critic's cross-eyed facial expression during the "REEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAA-..."-scene. (at the 10:15 mark).
- "Oh fuck you, Roger Christian, whoever the fuck you are!"
- "So we cut back to Johnny's village..." "Riiii-co-la!"
- "Yes we can!" (cut to clip of Barack Obama) "Yes! We! Can!"
- "Psychlo... really? C'mon, this is sounding like second-grade Fan Fiction. (high voice) 'They LIVE on the planet PSYCHLO, where the EVIL Meanosaurus and the NASTY Bandamagoo eat up ALL the Oompa-Loompas.'"
- The Critic's conversations with Terl:
- "I'm REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY ANGRY!"
- And:Terl: Ha, a puny man-animal such as yourself couldn't possibly understand. We are far technologically superior. We have conquered dozens of species over hundreds of galaxies!... Or is that the other way around?
Critic: You couldn't conquer Rhode Island! You're completely useless!
- "Listen, you're probably figuring out by now that we Psychlos are not very smart. In fact, the only reason we're able to take over any galaxies at all is that we fart nuclear bombs out of our anuses." "Oh. So, none of this has to do with strategic planning or superior intellect?" "Nope, it's just FARTING BOMBS! HAHAHAHAHA!!!"
- In his commentary for the episode, Doug says that editing Spoony's scenes was really hard because he couldn't stop laughing at the performance.
- "It looks like someone lit a cigarette on our home planet and now the whole damn thing's going to explode."
- "When you were learning to SPELLLLLL your name..."Critic: Oh, go away; it's like talking to a horse's vagina.
- Reciting Shakespeare: "To BE!... or not to BEEEEEEEEE!!!"
- "At least in Planet of the Apes, the humans were dumb, so it made sense that they'd treat them like animals; but here, there's no logic! It's like Planet of the Apes without the logic! You know, like the REMAKE of Planet of the Apes!"
- "Have you ever heard of subtlety? Underplay?! A good actor-YAAAAH!"
- His reaction to finding out the Psychlos haven't discovered Fort Knox. He sounds he like wants to hurt someone.Critic: No... they're not. They're honestly not... Son of a BIIIIIITTTTCCCHHH!!!
- "Is this the film's attempt to be artsy? ... Because... it works about as well as tilting the CAMERA IN EVERY FUCKING SHOT!!
- "We've decided to keep you here for another 50 cycles. With endless options for renewal! (echoing) With endless options for renewal! With endless options for renewal!"Critic: I'm sorry, I seem to have a problem repeating myself! Repeating myself! Repeating myself! Repeating myself! (smacks himself) I'm an idiot.
- As Terl demonstrates his marksmanship by shooting the legs off a bunch of cattle...Critic: Okay, you can shoot cows, that's wonderful, McDonald's must be very proud of you.
- The opening sequence, which shows clips of the Destruction Scene from the previous Video Game review of the same name. Cut to the Critic's deadpan reply:Critic: "I didn't like it."
- The Critic, Linkara, Benzaie, Angry Joe and Phelous all trying to pronounce Tone Lōc's name (with the Critic being able to sneak a Bugs Bunny reference at the end by also questioning the pronunciation of Hansel).
- This has been another... pointless moment! *Ding!*
- The Critic does a subtle Men in Black joke with park security, playing Will Smith's hip-hop tune from the film over the audio when they arrive to detain Bebe's Kids.
- "So the kids find themselves in a courtroom where the Terminator is trying to decide if they're worth electrocuting to death while robotic Abraham Lincoln and Nixon defend their sides...* fearfully checks box labeled "ACID"* ...Nope! The movie's just weird!"
- Mickey Mouse's cry of vengeance against Bébé's kids."DAMN YOU BÉBÉ'S KIDS! THE MOUSE WILL HAVE VENGEANCE ON YOU! I WILL SEE YOU PERISH IN FLAMES! I HAVE CONNECTIONS TO THE LORD OF DARKNESS! YOUR ASS IS GRASS! THEY WON'T RECOGNIZE YOUR BODIES! I WILL STEAL YOUR SOULS, BÉBÉ'S Kiiiiiiiiids!!!"
- "Mr. African...American."
- "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! THEY HAVE ATTITUUUDE! AAAATITUUUUUDE!"
- "Well in the 80s and early 90s, especially in confused animated movies, they would have a music video. They served absolutely no purpose and—" * upon seeing a close-up of Jamika's ass* "—DAAAMN! Oh, um...they served absolutely no purpose..."
- "Yeah, where's the sign that says 'No bEVIS No VIbES'?"
- "YOUR NAME IS OPIE!" (crack!) "Winthrop."
- "You know, I think that's how Robin would react if someone asked him about his movie. 'DID YOU MAKE THIS?!' 'No, no no, no! It was Bebe's kids!'"
- "Are they entering North Korea?!"
- "I did not consider the ramifications of a well-put-together rap. I deem this... fly."
- "So what's your name?" "And if you can, please say it without rappin—" (kids start rapping) "—you son of a bitch."
- Comparing Pee-Wee to Stewie:"Damm you, vile woman! You've impeded my work since the day I escaped your womb. Oh yeah."
- The Critic on Robin's parenting skills:Jamika: You know, youre really good with them [the kids].
Critic: ...Really? Because he looks like an asshole to me! But... maybe I'm missing something. I mean, hell, maybe this is, like, a brand new way of parenting. This really clever subtle way that really shows how much love you can give. Maybe this way is going to totally change the way we look at parenting
Robin: I'm gonna beat the black off of you! (another clip) Don't fight fair. (another clip) I'm going to drop you like a bad habit. (another clip) Knock the hell out of them kids! (another clip) Test-tube baby.
Critic:' Yeah, he's an asshole.
Lost in Space
- Regarding Blarp: "It looks like Jar Jar Binks' aborted fetus.""Is that really the best design they could come up with? A half-chewed Mickey Mouse eraser?"
- The Critic proving that he doesn't need the Wah-Wah machine by giving his own after many of the lame jokes: "WAH! WAH! WAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!"
- Gary "I'm Firing My Agent" Oldman.
- "Hey hey, it's the Nintendo Wuss!"
- "I love you wife.""Oh, my heart soars every time! The monotone, the absolute lack of human feeling, the way he doesn't even refer to her by her name, just the role of 'wife'! I swoon every time!"
- "Eat peace!"
- After hearing Penny's voice and declaring her the missing Chipette, "Skankie", her voice raises progressively in speed and pitch, until: (BANG) "Eh, I didn't need those eardrums anyway."
- Critic as spider!Smith, with all the subtle nuance that implies.
- His confusion at Future Dr. Smith trying to kill his past self.
Top 11 Villain Songs
- "God I'd go gay for that voice."
- His despairing reaction to the Quest for Camelot musical number. Especially since it comes right after him hoping the Quest For Camelot music would be as awesome as the ones on the list.
- "It's like Peewee's... Earth." Just the way he says that line is hilarious.
- "Dude, you're on a MOUNTAIN OF EVIL, HOW ABOUT SOME OOMPH IN YOUR VOICE?"
- ~Be king undisputed, respected, salu~... How am I gonna get down from here?
- "Hah-hah, I'll see you in eternal damnation, hah-hah!"
- Catherine ZZZZeta-Jones!
- "Couldn't you have shot any of it in Chicago? I mean, it's called Chicago!" Just his delivery of that line was hilarious.
Quest for Camelot
- As Running Gag for this episode, we have his constant requests for the movie to explain things..."EXPLAIN, MOVIE! EXPLAIN!"
"Hey, remember me? I'm the audience. You wanna fill me in on what the fuck's going on?"
"NO! NO! That does not happen movie! That just DOES! NOT! HAPPEN! Unless you, oh, I don't know, EXPLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN!!!!!!!"
- ...which comes to a climax by causing one of the two consecutive nuclear explosions.Critic: JUST... EX... PLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [death, destruction and doom ensue; critic double takes at destruction] ... Sorry.
- ...which comes to a climax by causing one of the two consecutive nuclear explosions.
- "Say, have you ever wanted to see Cary Elwes, Gary Oldman, Urkel, Gabriel Byrne, Pierce Brosnan, Balki from Perfect Strangers, Jane Seymour, that... chick from Heroes, Don Rickles and Eric Idle in a movie together? NO! NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT! But they DID IT in a fucking piece of shit called Quest for Camelot!"
- "Let's take a look at this medieval BLAST FROM THE ASS and see why it should have stayed in the Dark Ages."
- At young Kayley:Kayley: One day I'll be a knight! Like father!
Critic: Well, you'd better work in growing that penis, Honey! It's the Dark Ages, it sucks for everybody.
- The references to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, particularly:Critic: They ride to... Camelot!
Monty Python: (singing) We're knights of the round table! We dance whene'er...
Nostalgia Critic: No! Nononono! This is meant to be taken seriously! The real deal! There are no singing knights in this version!
(Description Cut to)
Arthur: (singing) Each of us we'll now divide, in equal shares our countryside...
- The knights saying things like "honor, value, courage..." mixed in with "Wind, water, heart!" and "Dragonzord, Mastodon, Pterodactyl!"
- "Now, I don't want to give anything away here, but... one of these guys is going to be the villain. Can you guess who?" (arrow points at King Arthur) "Wow, you're a dumbass."
- All of his complaints about how Ruber is Obviously Evil.
- His conversation with Dr. Smith. All of it. "Does it involve spiders?"Dr. Smith: Did someone question my subtle acting?
Nostalgia Critic: Oh, come on, Dr. Smith, you're about as subtle as a fucking trainwreck. On a boat.
- Also, his suggestion that Smith be truly diabolical and actually try to convince people that he's a kind, caring person, to which Smith looks at his hideous spider body and replies "... Think the ship's sailed on that one."
- And also this:Dr. Smith: Wait! There's one more important thing! It's imperative that you must know!
Critic: What? What!?
Dr. Smith: Spiiiiders!
[Critic shoots him]
- "What? You squeeze the horse's mane to get a song?" Cue repeated squeezings of the said horse's mane leading up to... Duck Tales! Woo-Hoo!
- At Kayley's ripped off looks: (without missing a beat) "Cut to years later as Kayley is grown up into—Hi Belle from Beauty and the Beast! Fancy seeing your image being shamelessly ripped off here! I mean, my God, they're not even trying! It's Belle! It's fucking Belle!"
- "Okay, okay, maybe I'm being too critical, I mean... Maybe she just looks like her. (While playing clips from both movies that look more than suspiciously similar) It's not like both run through the fields with their arms open, feed animals at a farm nor sing a song about wanting more out of life and being stuck in an environment that doesn't welcome her free spirit... (Beat) ... Oh, wait, YES, THEY FUCKING DO!!"
- RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICOLAAAAAAAAAAAA !
- "I should know! I speak... horn!..."
- About one of Kayley's scenes at the beginning of the movie:Kayley: But I want to be a knight! Go on grand adventures... Fighting evil... Rescuing damsels in distress!
Critic: Helloooo, hot character trait!
Kayley: What's a damsel, anyway?
Critic: Goodbyeee, hot character trait...
- The part where the Critic is discussing how distracted the guards are that they simply let Kaylee go:
- I HAVE HANDS!!!
- The clips from Sin City with "The Prayer" as background music.
- Critic as Kayley while she runs away from Rubert's henchmen: "I'm still going to be the world's greatest knight! That's why I'm running away from danger that is closing in behind me. But... I'm doing it very bravely!"
- When Garrett initially won't let Kayley come along with him to find Excalibur because he always works alone, Critic makes the false assumption that the reason is because she's a woman. Considering the views of women in the time period, it wouldn't be shocking if that were the case.
- "Yes, in medieval times, even A BLIND MAN has more credibility to go into danger than a woman does. It pays to have balls!"
- His reaction to Garrett giving in to Kayley's request to join him, with him mocking the two characters.Critic (as Kayley): I really want to come with you.
Critic (as Garrett): No. (sings) Like every tree, stands on its own...
Garrett: Oh, alright.
- The scenes with Bladebeak. "But the comedic axe chicken— God, I can't believe I just put those words together...". Not to mention his acknowledging the fact said comedic axe chicken is voice by Jaleel White, leading to the inevitable Sonic Sez reference.Reuber: You! Report!
Critic (as Bladebeak): Well, the plot makes no sense, we have no originality and the songs are gonna be more successful than the movie.
- His imagined "The ogre's butt" recording session, accompanied by a picture of Gary Oldman looking extremely irritated.
- This at the end before the concluding sentences:Python!Arthur: On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.
- His way-too-twitchy trigger finger and subsequent reactions at the end... offing Mary Poppins, Bert, and finally Mickey.
- The lead-up to the above moment is pretty great as well:Critic: In fact, I want an answer! I want an answer right now! And not only do I want an answer, I want an answer that's from the most innocent, perfect being that I can think of, Mary Poppins! That's right, Mary Poppins is gonna be my representation of this movie! So tell me, Mary Poppins, how do you explain this bullshit that we just witnessed?
Mary Poppins: First of all, I would like to make one thing quite clear...
Mary Poppins: ...I never explain anything.
Critic: ...FUCK YOU, BITCH! (whips out pistol and shoots)''
Old vs New: The Nutty Professor
- In the end, he gets a call from Peppermint Patty's parents.
- "Who uses a horn to talk?!!"
- "Let me get my clarinet so we can have a REAL conversation!"
- Benzaie about to shave his privates (Don't worry, they don't show anything) and the Critic's horrified reaction.
- Benzaie's facial expression makes it ten times funnier.
- The Critic imagining what a family of Jerry Lewis' would be like.
- He is confused by some aspects of the original, and demands that the movie explains them... but thankfully, it only culminates in a small explosion.
- NC's Cluster F-Bomb to open the review.
- "For those of you that are young and have no idea who Pauly Shore is... Good."
- His impression of Joey Lauren Adams' shrill voice.
- The cameo from 90's Kid!90's Kid: Oh, it's probably just my landlord with another eviction notice... *BAM!* And a battering ram... *gun cocks* And a sawed-off shotgun.... Uh, gotta go! (runs off while shots are fire at him)
- Or this exchange:
- "There IS something about a man who can lick his own back..." ".......What am I supposed to say to that?"
- "YAAAY, you tried to tell a joke! You get a vast, empty void of SILENCE!"
- Also counts as a Moment of Awesome. The Nostalgia Critic pointing out how the scientists in the film look like scientists in other films. He uses Doc Brown as an example of how a movie-scientist SHOULD look and asks what Doc Brown would think. The answer:Christopher Lloyd: I was frozen today!
Critic: Oh, that's good to know. Thanks, Christopher Lloyd!
- He actually did get Christopher Lloyd to say that line.
- The Critic spazzing out when the movie glosses over Tenacious D just to get immediately back to the unfunny protagonist duo: "YOU PASSED OVER THE ONLY TALENTED PEOPLE IN THE MOVIE, YOU MORON!!!

(long beat) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!"
- "This is the movie - (shows DVD of Bio-dome) - these are my wrists after watching the movie - (shows wrists that are covered in bandages) - and these are the notes I took during watching the movie.

Why? (etc.)")
- The Critic's reaction to the protagonists bisexual claim, followed by them leaning together, waggling their tongues.Critic: Never do that again, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

- The reaction to the clown getting shot toward the end of the film.Critic: My God. You're actually trying to kill comedy, aren't you? You're trying to...physically destroy everything that is humorous in this world. (long beat) You're not gonna get away with it! No! How much of this movie is left? Fifteen minutes? Okay, I'm just gonna rush through it, thwarting your diabolical plan, you sick, sick, FUCK movie!
- "Has anyone else noticed that Pauly Shore is to white people as Jar Jar Binks is to black people? Seriously, I'm offended..."

- The kid's detective moment.

As if to say: "Wow, I really didn't think I was gonna see this today. A talking bear speaking with an evil face in a book. Thank God it's at least Friday."
- Critic's reaction to said Judge Doom face with audio. "That was a brick, literally a brick."

- When Nicholas turns all the kids into Jerkasses: "Oh no, he turned them into YouTube commenters!"
- "They also come across a Pink Elephant. And... guessing the amount of booze you've probably had throughout this picture, I'm guessing you're coming across a few as well."

Critic: Oh, I don't care. (then realizes) No, no, wait! I didn't mean tha— Ugh... (facepalms)

- "That's not a ride, that's a Hentai!"

- Wait! You cant eat me! Im British food! I taste terrible!
- At the beginning:Critic: This is the story about a boy and his Willy. Let me try that again. This is the story about a boy and his relationship with his little whale. No. This the story about a boy who likes to hold onto his big fish—okay, this isn't what you think. It has Michael Jackson in it! Okay, just roll it...
- The ending: "But like I said, it's not a terrible movie. I mean, it's not as bad as something like, A Troll in Central- Nope! ... Nope, nope! I know how this works. If I say the entire title, that means I have to review it next week. Yeah, I know this joke. I'm not doing it, mm-mmm. There is no way you're getting me to say A Troll in Central Park...!" (Next Week, A Troll In Central Park) "FUUUUUUU-" (cuts to sinister villain evilly eating popcorn)
- Sinister villian evily eating popcorn is a CMOF in its own right, especially when you put it to Heartwarming scenes.
- Also, the various Call Backs to previous movies he's reviewed: Seeing The actress who played Tank Girl and the villain from The Next Karate Kid again, the "CAAAAAT!" joke, a quick nod to his previous review of Jaws 3D, the list goes on
- His reactions to Willy's crying, comparing it to Curly having a hernia, Snarf from ThunderCats getting neutered, Jar-Jar Binks in a blender and William Hung sucking on helium.
- His assertion that Michael Ironside, as the villain, may be a robot with quotes like "Disengage impressed mode, engage smug indifference" and "Let me check my douchebag files for that".

- "Spider!" (Chucks baseball through a window)
A Troll in Central Park
- "TELL A STORY!"
- After the mom (voiced by Hayley Mills) tells Gus to appreciate what he has:Critic (as the mom): Yes, we ALL have to appreciate what we have. For example, I could've been the star of "Saved By The Bell". (getting more frantic) I was the star of "Saved By The Bell", but for some reason I'm NOT the star of "Saved By The Bell". "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" my fucking ASS! ... (mouths "sorry").
- "My Little Pony, the Care Bears, Teletubbies, Cabbage Patch Kids, The Smurfs, Barbie, Pound Puppies, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, Barney the Dinosaur, all the High School Musicals, Jem, and the goddamn Get Along Gang are fucking BUTCH compared to this!"
- The phone calls with Stanley the Troll.
- "But annoyance is part of my charm! Like that cute little puppy that barks a lot, or a unicorn's horn shoved up your ass, Or pancreatic cancer!"
- "I love you!"
- The Critic managing to dream up a porcupine growing out of his anus, said porcupine becoming a T-Rex, and said T-Rex eating Stanley, and from INSIDE HIM no less... ALL OVER THE PHONE.Stanley: Now he's going after my nads! MY ENCHANTED NADS! OH! PLEASE! PLEASE! GOD! I still love you.
- What sells it is the look on the Critic's face when he comes up with Stanley's punishment.
- The line about Stanley "ensuring all the good things that come flowers, sunshine, and animals that smile with their mouths open."
- The Critic subverting his argument about the movie being intended for a wall: "Here's the last wall they showed it to. (the house implodes) Should've rented Iron Giant."
- "(GASP!) Did [Gus] actually suggest that somebody have BALLS in this movie?!?!"
- Gus: (to Stanley) "You'll never have a dream come true! And you know why?"
- Critic: "(flashes a list on screen) Take your pick." The "He's a coward" one is chosen.
- Here is the full list: He's annoying. He's obnoxious. He won't shut up. He's a pansie [sic]. He sings to flowers. He's as bland as Edward from Twilight. He's vomitingly cute. His logic makes no sense. He needs to die. He's looks like a rejected muppet. He's a coward. He has three teeth. He lives a delusional nutball. He lives in Central Park yet is still alive. He's ruining this whole friggin' movie, as well as cinema in general. The oompa loompas could beat him up. He makes Mini-Me look tall. He gets excited when toddlers kiss him. He's the only troll more annoying than the ones from Encyclopedia Dramatica. A termite has bigger balls than him. Did I mention he's annoying?
- His response to Stanley being turned to stone: "HOORAY!" Not to mention his reactions to New York City being plant-ified, mainly suggesting that this was just Stanley's evil plant-based plan.
- The directional arrows (a la Dragon's Lair) at the scene where Stanley the troll runs around in New York traffic. Eventually the arrows give up and are replaced by "FUCK IT!"
- "ZUUL, MOTHERFU-HEY!"
- His sketch after a troll starts singing: "I'm a baad troooll...". "OK, this is what happens if you let your five year-old write the screenplay!"Five Year-Old: And then the troll says "I'm a baad troooll".
Critic: Oh, that's good, son! (starts typing) "And then troll said: I'm a baad troooll"...
Five Year-Old: I have to go potty.
Nostalgia Critic: Oh, EVEN BETTER! (starts typing) "And then he says: I have to go potty"...
Five Year-Old: No, really, I-I have to go potty.
Critic: (disappointed) Oh, yeah, yeah, go ahead, go... go potty.
Critic: (starts typing) Still good line, though...
- "Duel of the Fates" playing during the climactic thumb-war sequence. Similarly, the Back to the Future theme playing when the flying boat appears in the climax.
- The very intro of this review in which Critic is so angry this movie that, as he proves later, even saying its title pisses him off.Critic: Watch. Ahem. A Troll in Central Farck... FUCK THIS MOVIEEE! (punches himself in the face) A Troll in Central Park!
- "Boy, Lindsay Lohan really let herself go."
- "(regarding Stanley) The only way to describe him is imagine Bilbo Baggins just ate the Lucky Charms leprechaun and got shit out through Dopey's anus. And that's the nice version!"
- Chipmunk Jawas...?
- The Critic's response to Whoopi Goldberg's Kid Sidekick, Sebastian. Yeah, he cues that music.
- The partner-up scene, or, more specifically, the Critic's response:Katie Coltrane: He's a dinosaur!
Critic: He is-I ch-buh... whuh?
- Critic's quest to justify the premise of the movie:
- His various movie pitches at the beginning including Betty White + Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, William Shatner + Pokémon, and Damon Wayans + the Gecko from the Geico commercials.
- The Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas scene.
- "Oh wait, I've seen this. Don't the Power Rangers come out and usually beat the crap out of these guys?"
- Teddy's dialogue being replaced by mechanical noises in one part of the review.
- "Run! We'll regroup with the Lollipop Guild!"
- "And his quest to find that mysterious shoulder tapper begins."
- "If I wanted to watch Whoopi Goldberg interact with dinosaurs, I'd watch The View."
- "... What the hell? Why are they playing shuffleboard with Hershey's Kisses?"
- Somewhere in the 14 minute mark has pretty much the funniest part of the review:Critic: (spotting the caterpillar) Oh? And what's this?
Teddy: It's a hairy hot dog.
Critic: (shrugs) Of course it is! (laughs) If you want a hairy hot dog to talk to a finger puppet, turn into a butterfly, and float by a bunch of helium containers, I'm okay with that now! There's really no point in questioning it. It's like trying to save a sinking ship with a band-aid; anything I try to do would be completely pointless. (Beat, in a high-pitched voice) ... Save me!
- He's reaction to the fact the Richard Roundtree, a.k.a. Shaft is playing the commissioner.Commissioner: (appearing for the first time and seeing Teddy on a fundraiser) Teddy?
Commissioner: Not many people get to meet their maker on a fundraiser, huh?
Critic: Oh, G... NOOO!!!
Another character: Excuse me, sir, is there, uh, something wrong?
Commissioner: Yes, yes, there's been a dinocide.
Critic: Oh, and the fact that you're JOHN SHAFT AND YOU'RE TALKING TO A FUCKING DINOSAUR!!!
- "Meanwhile at the... sprinkled testicle building..."
- "So Teddy meets up with Molly again as they head back to his place for some Tyrannosaurus sex."Molly Rex: I'm a fool for milk and cookies.
Theodore: Oh! C-Cookies! Cookies, cookies, cookies, cookies, cookies!
Critic: Yep, the running joke of cookies has literally just been resorted to the shouting of the word now, which is a shame. I saw real potential for that joke.
- "Out of the way, guy who was only here for a throwaway gag!"
- "HA HA HA HA! BLENDER! IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT BEGINS WITH A 'B'! HA HA HA HA HA!"
- "I just thought back to my 'blender' joke! Ha ha! 'B'! Ha ha!"
- When the commissioner claims that Whoopi Goldberg's character embarrassed the department, the Critic says this:"SHE embarrassed the... SHE embarr.. DO YOU EVEN SEE [Series/Dinosaurs EARL SINCLAIR]] OVER THERE?!"
- "Is the cameraman drunk?! Is that why the angles keep tilting? I tell you what, if it is, I don't blame him! It'd be the only way I could get through filming this movie too!"
- When a ninja grid is mentioned, the Nostalgia Critic complains that they could've been watching that this whole time instead of Whoopi Goldberg and Theodore Rex, then asks what else they've been missing out on."Is there a 'rock bands on skateboard' grid as well? Come on, guys, focus on the good stuff!"
Top 11 Coolest Cinematic Cliches

- "Oim heah to blur the loins of reali-tee!"
- The sketch about the Critic acting out the role of a killjoy father.Kid: Dad, is there a Santa Claus?
Kid: Is there an Easter Bunny?
Critic: No, I made that up too!
Kid: Dad, is there a God?
Critic: Well, scientifically speaking, they've never really proven that God actually exists, so probably not. In fact, the majority of religions if not all religions are completely false. (the kid starts crying) Oh, what?
- The out-of-nowhere cameo by Film Brain:Film Brain: SYMBOLISM!!!
Critic: What was that?
- When Peter tries to rescue his kids from Hook:Peter: Come on, give me a hand.
Hook: I already have.
Hook's Pirates: Ooooh...
Critic (as Hook): Oh, yes. I went there.

- "So after not killing him for a third time, our family finally decides to go home, happily ever af—Psych! Heil Hitler.

- "I believe in you, Peter. And I'm Jesus!"

- "That coconut had just two days left until retirement! You bastard!"
- This:Peter: Tink! Come on, you gotta come!
Critic: Well she was about to— (realizes) Oh, oh, that, yeah.
- The Critic's... interesting analogy on why he doesn't like the movie:Critic: But so many people tell me (mockingly) "Oh, it's a popcorn movie! Can't you just have fun?!". Well, let me tell you something: a waterslide is fun. All the slipping and sliding, it's just great! But if someone took you off the waterslide, shook you, gave you a noogie, and then spat in your face and put you back on the waterslide, you'd be like "... That wasn't fun. That was weird and annoying!". And THAT'S this movie!

This Overly Long Gag explores the large amount of Fridge Logic regarding why the space ship from the 1950's (since there would have been nearly forty years of technological advancement on the aliens end) could sneak aboard the mothership, the Critic concludes that the only logical conclusion is that one of the Head Aliens thinks that the ship belongs to his old flame, and constantly Failed a Spot Check to realize it was being piloted by two of those Puny Humans. The capper, however, is the Alien's reaction to being fired upon ("PLUTO'S BALLS!!!"), and then his Famous Last Words:

- Johnny randomly asking about Mark's sex life:
- Lupa, Linkara, and Spoony's cameos, begging him not to review the movie so he doesn't go crazy. Spoony's is especially funny, since he first thinks the Critic is reviewing Highlander II: The Quickening, only to run out screaming when he finds out it's The Room.

Critic: Please stop that.

- The Critic repelling The Mummy in the same way.
- (slashes his wrists) "Oh, wait, before I go, I should probably explain the situation.. (writes on the wall with his blood) "It..." (beat) and they can figure the rest from there." (dies)
- I'm the shadow on the moon at night...
- Any and all times we are reminded that the Critic is drunk..."Camera's purrrrty."
"Why are you all spinning?"
"I'm drunk, and I'm not even scared!"
"I'm the Vitameatavegamin boy." What's great is the wait hold on style pause before he changes the line from girl to boy, like he forgets what gender he is when he's drunk.
- And when Stan's head appears and starts talking with everyone, Critic throws away his bottle of booze.
- "This is like a stand-up routine at Jeffrey Dahmer's house!"
- And when Stan's head appears and starts talking with everyone, Critic throws away his bottle of booze.
- The Critic imagining Pennywise threatening Eddie, cackling insanely... and then just staring at him in awkward silence. Followed by a cameo of Bugs Bunny.
- The Critic making fun of the sound effects used everytime someone has a flashback."I looked into its dead-lights." (looks at the camera with a scared face) *boing*
"You looked into its dead-lights?!" (exaggerated astonished face) *computer "ta-daaa" error sound*
"I looked into its dead-lights!" (stupid face) *rooster cry*
- The Critic mocking the fact that the clown never eats the kids, wondering what is more important with his time."Rawr, I've got you now little boy! RAA— Oh, my God, it's almost three!"
(The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song plays)
- EXTREME CLOSEUP!!! WOOOOOOAAAAAAH!!!
- "We can either bring a machine gun or a slingshot. Rambo or Dennis the Menace? (thinks) You're going down, Mr. Wilson! PEWPEWPEW!"
- The critic's reaction to IT's true form is hilarious:Critic: What? WHAT? (throws whiskey in his face) WHATT??!! We waited three fucking hours for that??!! You can't be serious. You can't be serious!! If I heard that a movie called 'It' was just building up to a big silly monster, I think THIS (picture of Cousin Itt) would have been a better payoff!!
- "Meanwhile, back at the restaurant, we see that the fortune cookies have been replaced with Marilyn Manson's wind-up toys, which, of course, scares the living shit out of them."
- "Yes, my dear. Would I lie?"
- The Critic having written "BALLOONS" on the wall in red.
- The Critic's reaction To The Clown Dog.Critic: (laughing) This is the funniest thing i've ever seen in my life— (slurred) Ah? It's supposed to be scary? Nah, nah, it's supposed to be funny! It's a dog dressed up as a clown in slowmotion! Ah? That was really supposed to be scary? Well it's not! It's not!
- The Contrived Coincidence of Henry Bowers and his gang being the only bullies anybody encounters in the story."Are these the only fucking bullies in the town?! Come on, kids, give the skinheads across the street a chance!"

Snob: YEARS of drinking Crystal Pepsi, my friend.
- The Raiders of the Lost Ark bit.
- "What is this, Clovers for Algernon?
- When Jennifer Aniston tries to call for help over the phone.Aniston: Hello, hello? Help us please! Come help us, we're trapped inside of here!
Pennywise: Do you have Prince Albert in a can? You DO? Well you better let the poor guy out. A-ha, a-ha, a-ha!
- This bit.Critic: CAAAAAAAAT!
- It gets better:Critic: What are you doing?
Snob: I don't know, I just thought we were shouting animals.
- And then Snob looks utterly crushed when Critic forbids him from joining in.
- It gets better:
- Snob smashing the Lucky Charms leprechaun.
- Which was a Call-Back to the Top 11 Mascots episode. The Critic even thanks him for doing so!
- Basically all of the Critic and Snob interactions.Critic: Thanks for joining me, Cinema Snob!
Snob: Oh, thank you for— ...No. This was a giant waste of time. (leaves)
Snob: (childishly) You're a dickhole!
- And this exchange towards the beginning.Critic: (imitating the Snob) And we're going to review this little masterpiece, right here, toda—
Snob: Uh, excuse me, what do you think you're doing?
Critic: ... I'm the Cinema Snob.
Snob: I'm the Cinema Snob.
Critic: No, I'm the Cinema Snob.
Cinema Snob: No, I'm the Cinema Snob.
Both in unison: Tssssssssssssss-uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggghhhhhhh.
Cinema Snob: Well, okay, what do you say we review this anus turkey together?
Nostalgia Critic: I would like that.
Both: HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA— tsssssssssssss-uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggghhhhh.
- And this exchange towards the beginning.
- When the leprechaun gets his hand cut off...
- Both Snob and Critic's reaction to the one epic line in the film:Alex: Fuck you, Lucky Charms!
(The Critic and Cinema Snob go into euphoria)
- Three Guys That Paint, on CBS!
- "Hop on your pogo stick, your pogo stick, your pogo stick..."
- The leprechaun wheelchair chase would have been funny enough already, but adding "Yakkety Sax" makes it downright hilarious.Snob (as leprechaun): You will take me seriously!
- How about when the tiny lepre-kart flips over the truck?Both: Aww, come on!
Critic: What, is the truck made out of styrofoam?!
Snob: My Hot Wheels don't flip over that easy!
- Jim Carrey-Bacon's explanation for what happened to the house is... a bear did it.Critic: Yeah, bears are often known for eating food and shining shoes. (Dual forehead-slap)

My Pet Monster
- The Critic behaving like a sexually confused little boy. And writing in a diary exactly how a teenage girl would, kicking his legs and giggling a couple of times.Dear Diary: Bernie said another joke today. God, he's funny, if only he knew the feelings I had towards him. If only... I was brave enough to tell him. God I'm a coward! [...] I almost had my chance today, but I chickened out at the last moment. Stupid Billy, stupid! Ah...One day you will be mine.
- Rob with a raptor head reading The Far Side.Rob: Ah, Gary Larson. I like cows too.

- "Yeah, 'cause I remember acting like a monkey in eighth grade. ...God, I was pitied."
- "Daaaaaaw, thinking is haaaard!"
- His epic rant about the monster presented in the movie."So let me get this straight. This children's play thing that you can get at Toys R Us for like $15 is a better special effect than this animatroic CHUCK-E-CHEESE NIGHTMARE?!?! YOU LIED TO ME, MOVIE! YOU LIED TO ME! I thought I was getting this! But noooo! Instead I'm getting... (shudders) THE FUCKING CRACK BABY OF 'WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE'!"
- When the monster goes through the fence in fast-motion:Critic: JESUS!!! (falls from his chair) The movie just got a sudden meth attack out of nowhere!
- "So the statue decides to transform Max because... DERPITY DO..."
- Warning: May turn you into Technicolor Wookie Diarrhea.
- "The ancient civilization of the Muppet tribe."
- The whole Wet Banana commercial.Critic: Uhhhhhhh...
Narrator: You can bounce and slide on Wet Banana like Billy!
Critic: Yes....be like Billy and take ride on the Wet Banana.
Narrator: You can dip and slide like Willy!
Critic: Yes...dipping and sliding is a good thing to do with your Wet Banana.
Narrator: Wet Banana's fun for the whole gang!
Critic: A very special kind of gang, but, yes, slippery wet fun is guaranteed.

Narrator: It is!

- Fridge Logic of The Flintstones:Barney: Hey Fred, how can we celebrate Christmas if Jesus hasn't been born yet?
Fred: Just eat your fuckin' cereal.
- The critic doing the voice of the TV in the Fraggle Rock Books bit.Critic (as TV): (Big Echoing Voice) I'm so confident you won't stop watching me, that I'm just giving you books! (Evil Laughter) You can't break your addiction of me! I won't die until the Internet's invented! I've got 10 more years, suckers! (Evil Laughter)
- The whole Magic Potty Baby bit.Announcer: It's fun to help Magic Potty Baby learn to use her potty.
Critic: NO, IT'S NOT. IT'S FUCKING GROSS!
- At the end of the ad:Announcer: Magic Potty Baby and her magic potty. No water, no mess.
Critic: Just pray that doesn't have to go number two.
- At the end of the ad:
- The Critic mocking the kid from the construction vehicle toys commercial.Kid: YEAH!
Critic: BAKE! What?
- About the picture labeled "Apple Jacks '94" at the end of the Apple Jacks commercial: "Do you think the kids from It did that? Like when they all took that picture together they simply labeled it as the summer of Apple Jacks '54? Y'know, instead of the summer of OH MY GOD A KILLER CLOWN A FUCKING KILLER CLOWN DON'T EVER FORGET THE KILLER CLOWN A KILLER CLOWN."
- How he mentions the kid from the Giggles cookies commercial is laughing harder than someone stoned of their ass.
- "Turn the gas off! TURN THE GAS OFF!!!"
- Concerning Chia pets:
- "Behold, the most boring thing IN THE ENTIRE FRIGGIN' WORLD!!!"
- This :Kids: Chi-chi-chi-Chia!
- He has a bout of Fridge Logic regarding the existence of the Popples.Why were they playing with a furry, pillow-like ball to begin with? "Hey, you got our basketball? Oh wow, that's a hairy fucker! And it doesn't bounce in the slightest! This'll do us well."
- "Ohh, you meant the Nintendo Entertainment System! I thought you meant the Animatronic Horse That Only Eats Toothpaste and Circus Midgets. ...It's very big in Sweden.
- Critic's parody of Poor Jack is this, a Heartwarming Moment and a Moment of Awesome all in one.
- The Critic watching the Micromachine Man, then having everything else seem really slow.Mom: Biiiilllllyyyy, iiiittt's mmooottthhheerrrr...cooommmeeee toooo diinnnnneeerrrrr...."
Old vs New: The Ten Commandments vs. The Prince of Egypt
- God vs. GodPrince of Egypt God: I am that I am.
"I'm Popeye the Sailor Man!"
- "Moses Moses" and the reference to the Super Mario Bros. movie.
- At the end, God reminds Critic that He is indeed a vengeful God after the Critic choses the gentler one in The Prince of Egypt, and zaps him with a lightning bolt as he tries to sneak away. The Critic's 30-second-long reaction sells it.
- Alien Moses. And the theme to The X-Files playing in the background!
- One Moses to Live will be right back...
The Thief and the Cobbler
- At the beginning:Critic: The name of the film is "The Thief and the Cobbler... Or, "The Princess and the Cobbler"... Or, "Arabian Knight"?... Or, "An Abomination of Assness", which is what most people call it.
- Vincent Price and his pre-recorded phone calls to the Critic.
- Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, toy boat toy boat toy boat, she sells sea shells by the... K-Mart!
- "Oh, and do look out for that pumpkin." Which prompts the return of "PUMPKIN?! PUMPKIN, WHAT?!"
- "I've planted a time-bomb in your house before it was built. It's set to go off in fifty seconds. You'd better run, big boy."
- The return of the Mind Fuck montage. The chase scene's Deranged Animation has the Critic gleefully giving in to the madness, as Harvey Danger's "Flagpole Sitta" plays. Keep in mind, this is actually a positive for the Critic, as he continually reminds the audience that the animation by famed Canadian animation Richard Williams is quite good.
- "Basically, this film is a product of ANIMATED INBREEDING!"
- Critic's parody of the unbelievably generic songs in the film. Made even funnier when you look at the lower left-hand corner and see the words "Directed by Tommy Wiseau".
- His note about how all the main characters have names that sound more like a baby learning how to talk, and his enactment that follows:Critic (as a toddler): (picture of a tack) Tack! (picture of a maze) Zig-Zag! (picture of a slice of pie) Yum-yum! (picture of the the title card of the movie) Shitty fuck fuck, shitty fuck, shit fuck!
- Critic's (rather creepy) super head-turn.
- The OF COURSE! meme preempts the Critic's usual line.

Yakko: Good night, everybody!

- Critic wondering what in the heck the power of the 3 golden balls could be...
- "The grass felt soft on my feet, why don't I monolouge about that for several hours? The grass is green, a frog is green, I'm sure I can talk about this in great detail somehow."
- "Butt-scratcher! Butt-scratcher!"
- The response to the opening narrative: "Oh great, it's a trailer for another Al Gore movie.""An Inconvenient Truth 2: Somebody Listen to Me!"
- The best one was where he was playing the Mortal Kombat theme.
- "LET'S GET READY FOR STUUUUUUUUUUFFFF!!"
- "Next time, it'll be a perm with blonde highlights. ''breathes through his nose** BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS!"
- How appalled he is that Costner sends Helen down into the water when he should know better than to leave the kid on the raft after completely blowing his location to the Smokers just minutes prior.Critic: Oh look! The Smokers got her! Well, if I didn't know any better, I'd say you're all IDIOTS!
- While we're at it, the idiot clock itself was a pretty good crowning moment as well, as it leads right up to this payoff.
- "She can't swim!" "SHE CAN'T SWIM?!! YOU'RE IN A PLACE CALLED WATERWORLD AND YOU CAN'T SWIM?!?! That's like being in the Arctic and not knowing how to put on a coat! Some things just go without saying!"
- During the Smokers' highly-choreographed attack on the atoll:Critic: Okay, this is turning into a watershow. Just slap the Universal Studios Florida logo in the corner and the advertising takes care of itself.
- How about when the people on the Atoll try to pass off a young woman on Costner?"We can look to our own for impregnation, but... too much of that sort of thing gets... undesirable..." ("Dueling Banjos")
- This little gem:Atoll Chief: In the interest of public safety, he is hereby sentenced to recycling!
Critic: Into WHAT, Keanu Reeves?
- Or when Gregor unleashes his flying device...Gregor: I'm sorry! It was an accident!
The Wizard of Oz: I can't come back, I don't know how it works! Goodbye folks!
- The loop of Enola getting punched.
- The Goofy yell added to when the Mariner gets whiplashed off his own boat.
- "AAAAAAAAAH!" "AAAAAAAAAH!" "Ba-bomb!"
- Critic using his little kid voice to make Samuel L. Jackson sound more badass in Pulp Fiction like Enola's attempt to make Costner's character sound more badass;Critic: His fro can block out the light of a thousand suns, his teeth can take out the biggest of Kahuna burgers and his constant use of the N-Word makes my mommy so angry but he's so worth the R-rating (Jackson fires a gun) Ahhh!
Jules: I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?
- His response to Costner's Dull Surprise.Costner: (dully) My boat.
Critic: (monotone) You maniacs. You blew it all up. Damn you. Damn you all to hell.
- "They meet up with a drifter who I swear to God is played by a perverted Robin Williams."
- Return of the SCARY SLOW-MO!
- The "over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder".
- THAT'S PAZUZU!
- The montage song: "An eighties montage fixes everything! Except when you show people eating! What the hell? I thought this was an eighties montage! All of a sudden it just kinda stopped. Shouldn't we be seeing some stuff? Cut against other stuff, oh wait here we go! We're back to the eiiighties montage! Now the buildup can finally begin. Oh wait, I guess it's over now. Boy, that was pretty fucking lame."
- Annoying Supernatural Fast Talking Dick Club.
- Critic's part-utterly horrified, part-insane smile when they all talk at once, as he slowly reaches to put his gun in his mouth.
- "POINT MADE." "(puts gun down) Oh thank GOD!"
- "What goes on down there is every kid's fantasy!"
- His reaction to the consequences of children getting yelled at for the pranks Brian and Maurice pulled off. "Why not just show their beatings? Oh, look! This one's getting the belt!"
- Because you're AWFUL!
- Little Monsters, Because god hates you!
- He does admit to one Actually Pretty Funny scene, when the girl's "Holy shit!" reaction to Brian vanishing under the bed is precisely how anyone would react to that sight.
- "I want my BROTHER!!!"
- "As well as some FOOD!!"
- After noting that Howie Mandel is, for the second time, playing a monster that's allergic to light:Critic: Does it have to be written in Howie Mandel's contract that ever single character he plays is allergic to bright light? Are bright lights part of his OCD? Does he have some kind of paranoia against them? Seriously, what would happen if he stepped in bright light?
- This line from the beginning of the video.Critic: It's the greatest time of the year, Christmas. Christmas has everything you could possibly need; Santa, snow, presents, Zod.
- His version of Rodney talking about the film with Harold Ramis:Critic: Hey, Harold! I got this great idea for a kid's movie! It's me as a dog!
Harold Ramis: I think that would be extraordinarily dangerous.
Critic: Glad you like it! Bye! Ho ho!
- Any comment on the incessant one-liners!
- The Jeopardy! bit when he wants us to guess the one-liner.
- The build-up to the "corn dog" line.
- "GO FARM EQUIPMENT!"
- Straight after the first time delivers a series of bad one-liners.Critic: Yeeeaah, um... how many more one-liners are there in this movi—?
Critic: (voice cracking) OH, GOD!!
- "It could be worse. I mean this is a kid's film they could be singing a song right now—NO NO NO NO NO NO!"Critic: All in favor of skipping this song say "Fuck off!"
Audience: "FUCK OFF!"
Critic: Thank you!
- The bit with Treebeard about the amount of trees used to make the film. The sign saying "For Rover Dangerfield" and the Ear Worm song playing in the background at realization makes it 100 times funnier.
- The "The End" title cards
- The Audience reaction to the turkey scene.
- Comparing Rover to the Duck Hunt Dog.
- The Critic saying that whenever Rover tells a one-liner, it feels like the character is reaching out of the screen and slapping him. We then see Rover tell another one-liner, then proceeding to reach out of the screen and slap the Critic.
- When the kid reads Rover's name off the dog's red tie: "At least it says so on his Nostalgia Critic tie!"
- Comedians who could be in bad animated spinoffs:
- Red Robin Williams, Andrew "Dice" Clay, The Chris Rock, Eddie Lizard, and Pen & Teller
- "Yeah, they're shit! But they're still better than this fucking crap!" What's also funny is that he's acting like one of those awful art students, the ones who do great work in under five minutes, call it crap and make their peers seethe with jealousy.
- This exchange.Farmer: This is hard for me Rover, but you've taken a life.
Critic (as Farmer): A life that... we were gonna take anyway. Um... but, um...
Elysia: IT WAS A LIFE!
Critic (as Farmer): Yeah, what she said!
Farmer: Rover, I wish we spoke the same language...Critic: Oh, what, you don't speak Badjokeese?
- And just before it...
- This moment:Critic: Can somebody explain why the sheep ended up in the tree?
Graham Chapman: These sheep are laboring under the misapprehension that they are birds. Notice how they do not so much fly as plummet.
- The Shout-Out to The Nostalgia Chick's review of Showgirls. "Doesn't she know that everybody got AIDS and shit?"
- "You'll curse the day you ever messed with the easily excitable Pussy Gang!"
- After the Critic says that Rover's reaction to his master coming to pick him up is, "of course, heartbreaking":Boy: Dad's gonna bring the pick-up around and take you to the airport.
(Rover jumps around and dances joyfully until he sees Daisy)
Critic: ... What an asshole.
- "Heh-hey, looks like I did end with a bang!"
- "What's next, a Nostalgia Kitten?"Nostalgia Kitten: A CAT CREDIT CARD??!!! Eh? Eh? (is shot; Duck Hunt dog appears with a sub-machine gun and laughs)
- "No respect at all."
You're A Rotten Dirty Bastard - A Christmas Special
- Bargo (as
WembleyGiggles): ...and that's when Mary Poppins had an abortion, and later she became a revolutionary!
- The different variations of the reviewers: The Cinema Snob as the world's greatest porn star; Linkara as head of DC and Marvel; The Nostalgia Chick as a mother of one, happily married to the child's stay-at-home dad, whilst also having become the most respected director in cinema today (She remarks that she can call her Twilight remake "Twilight: The Good Version" simply because she's directing), with a close friendship & working relationship with Nella to boot; Spoony as the Nostalgia Critic beloved even by Douchey McNitpick; and Angry Joe as the President Of United States. Phelous, however, gets killed when Joe blows up Canada. The Nostalgia Critic's reactions seal the whole deal.
- Ask That Guy is much nicer and well-adjusted without the Critic around. Even though he still loves hookers, of course.
- Roger and the Critic Tempting Fate after seeing Joe's alternate future.Roger: Oh, come on! These can't possibly be as bad as Joe being the President of the United States.
Critic: I suppose you're right. I mean, it can't get any worse.
(Spoony's alternate future)
Spoony: Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to. (Insert present-Critic's girly scream)
- "Is this a pep talk? Because let me tell you, it's not helping. Pep talks are supposed to make you feel peppy, not make you want to take a shower with a fucking toaster!"
- The "pep talk" itself, complete with Title Drop:Roger: See, Critic, you really were a rotten dirty bastard, All the people you came in contact with would have led a better life [places his left hand on NC's shoulder] if you had never met them at all.
- The "pep talk" itself, complete with Title Drop:
- Following the failed pep talk and NC's very angry reaction, Roger is just stumped. He has never met a person so hated as NC. He usually finds at least one person who misses the person he's working with. "Statistically, this doesn't seem possible!"
- The ending, when the Critic insults in turn each of the reviewers who had vastly better lives simply by not knowing him, and each one makes a retort displaying their hatred for him.Critic: Merry Christmas, you porn-reviewing fucktard!
Cinema Snob: Blow me!
Critic: Merry Christmas, you self-righteous activist for anything, you!
Nostalgia Chick: (deadpan) I so wish you'd die.
Nostalgia Critic: Merry Christmas, you pasty comic book-reading ass-magnet, you!
(Linkara puts down his comic and flips the Critic off)
Nostalgia Critic: Merry Christmas, you over-excitable Puerto Rican jumping bean!
Angry Joe: Oh, I am so working on a hand grenade with your name on it.
Nostalgia Critic: Merry Christmas, you pompous reject of everything likable, you!
Spoony: (cheerfully) Thanks a lot, I'll see you in hell!
- "Hmm...so God lied to me....that seems like a dick move"
- Spoony laughing maniacally for seconds straight at the camera. Even funnier when you realize he isn't aware that the Critic and Roger are there, yet he's still pretty much mocking him!
- Once the fight scene between Roger and The Critic began. Roger's ability to slide across the ground, stop time to beat up the Critic, and that little tiger-roar when he smiled were too much.
- The expressions on NC's face are the cherry on top.
- The ending.Santa Christ: Ho ho ho! So as you see, boys and girls, the moral of the story is...
(Santa Christ proceeds to look around the room blankly for three or four seconds, and the credits roll)
- Good god, the bloopers. Doug and Rob turning Santa Christ into an anti-semite, Nostalgia Spoony laughing madly until he falls out of his chair, then completing his impression the only way possible:Spoony: A BAT CREDIT CARD? NOOOOOOOOO! NOOOOOOOOO! DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!
- Speaking of impressions, Spoony's incredibly exaggerated take on the Critic's opening Catchphrase followed by...Doug: You're an asshole.
- The multiple takes of Snob's "blow me" line.Brad: And that was my day.
Jillian: You really want him to blow you.
- Speaking of impressions, Spoony's incredibly exaggerated take on the Critic's opening Catchphrase followed by...
- Spoony laughing hysterically for a really long time. Finally he stops and catches his breath.Spoony: Almost lost my goddamn mind for a minute there!
- When Doug cracked up at Ma-Ti saying, "But Critic, you can't leave!", Doug: "Sorry, it's the voice."

(the Technodrome smashes through the wall and crushes the Turtles flat)
- "Turtles fight with X!" or "Turtles X with honor!", in reference to Donatello's completely out-of-the-blue and out-of-context battle cry.
- The look of despair that creeps over the Critic's face when he realizes that unlike his other January-month specials, this is going to suck.
- When the turtles' flying car stops running and Donatello determines that the fuel consists of plutonium:
- The Critic wondering how on earth they were able to drive the Turtle-Van underground to the Technodrome.
- "And to your right, you'll see a giant Lego igloo."
- The Critic's reaction upon realizing that the characters didn't care about the many likely deaths when April's apartment building collapsed:Critic: Oh my God, the loss of innocent life! Lord knows how many innocent families were in there and now are suddenly [sobbing] de-ea-ea-ead! Oh my God! The impact this must have on our heroes!
April: Boy, they sure don't build 'em like they used to!
[the Critic stares aghast for a moment]
Critic: Inconsiderate BITCH! What the hell would you say if you just saw the Hindenburg disaster? 'Uh-oh! Spaghetti-O's!'...THE FUCK'S WRONG WITH YOU?!
[An image of April appears with the words and condemning vocal "YOU ARE A TERRIBLE PERSON" over the top.]
- This bit, which involves an old lady being scared by the turtles:Critic: OK; we all know this gag. The woman overreacts and runs away screaming while (the old lady pulls out a machinegun and points it at the turtles and April) HOLY SHIT!Old Lady: One twitch and you're history, scum! Now back off, nice and easy!
Critic (imitating the lady): Moses from Planet of the Apes says it's my right to own one of those things and BY GOD I'm going to exercise that right!
- When April is kidnapped by some Foot soldiers:Critic: All right, sending camera crew to hmm-hmm-hmm. By any chance, is that off of "HEEEEEEEEEELLLLLP!" Street?
- His reaction to episode 2's title.
- "... This one begins with Donatello putting together the Turtle Van, because, as we heard in the opening, Donatello does machines." (picture of Rosie) "No, not like that. I... You're gross."
- The Critic mocks the exterminator who refused to buy Baxter Stockman's mousers:
