  • The end of the review of It's A Wonderful Tiny Toons Christmas Special, which marked the second time that year that Peter reviewed a special that invoked It's a Wonderful Plot (the first was It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie):
    If you want to watch It's a Wonderful Life again, then you'll probably watch that. There are no Muppets or loud pratfalls in the Jimmy Stewart classic, but perhaps that's part of its charm.

  • The entirety of the Pinky and the Brain Christmas review is filled to the brim with gushing praise for the special and especially its Tear Jerker climax.
    It's all in the delivery. [Maurice] LaMarche's reading of this letter is heartwrenching, and the emotion captured in the TMS animation is incredible. We know how blindly devoted Pinky is to Brain, but for the first time it hits him—and us as well—just how sweetly innocent he truly is. And as Brain stands there trembling amongst the crackling radio equipment, he realizes he doesn't deserve someone like Pinky. None of this is said, but from the brilliant direction this cartoon got, it's felt. Boy, is it felt.
  • In a weird way, his response to a particularly diabetes-tasting scene in For Better or for Worse: The Bestest Present:
    If I wasn't aware of the fan demand for Misfit Specials every year, I would never sit through things like this. You people owe me one.

How well does it match the trope?
