You got broke

Red: Do you know what today is?
Saul: Tuesday.
Red: This is my cat's birthday today.
Dale Denton: I don't see a cat in here. I'm sorry. Did you let it out by accident?
Red: No, because he died three months ago, okay? So now who's the funny guy?

[Dizzy opens a jar and deposits The Brain in Elmyra's hand]
Brain: The obvious nature of this pondering belittles us all.
Elmyra: Ooooooh! I'll play with you later!

That was the mayor of Paris, who was just as eager as I am to know why ISIS agents were terrorizing Paris!
Malory, Archer

Angol Moa: Let's say your actions, uncle, are made into an anime TV series on Pokopen.
Keroro: Hmm... yes! We do have a lot of kiddie fans.
Angol Moa: If that were to happen, and the contents were too violent or inhumane, it wouldn't make a good impression, and might violate some broadcast regulations.
Keroro: Hmm... that is possible!
Angol Moa: And what if, by unfortunate coincidence, a similar incident were to occur around the same time it was broadcast on your show?
Keroro: I... I don't even want to think about it!

"I feel in my bones that this [a soap opera about The British Royal Family] could be a winner. Princess Diana would be the star eventually, of course. She is at present starring in her own soap opera, and the whole country wants to know what will happen to her next."
Adrian Mole, diary entry of the 30th August 1997, Adrian Mole: The Cappuccino Years

"Hindsight's a bitch, ain't it?"

"If those radical Muslim fundamentalist terrorists had Ed on their team back in 1992, the World Trade Center would now be referred to as the World Trade Pit."
Dave Barry, in 1996, discussing his fireworks-obsessed mechanic Ed.

"I was going to make some joke about how Urkel could beat us all up now — but he was recently arrested for domestic battery, so suddenly that doesn't seem funny any more."

"[Marc] Summers himself ends up in the brown goop, which, given his real-life Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and fixation on neatness, no doubt eats away at his fragile psyche."

"I guess I want it to be good because that's how this story's supposed to end—after 14 years of snickering bullies making the Did Not Finish joke, the plucky never-say-die Duke Nukem should finally turn around and silence those guffawing shits.
Well, Duke Nukem has certainly put an end to all
those jokes, if only because they're now more tragic than funny.

Two jocks in letter jackets immediately decide to bully him as part of the ongoing Coat Wars, and Slater responds by pulling out a goddamn gun and firing blanks in their faces. In the next scene, one of the titular Heathers scoffs at the thought of J.D. getting any punishment worse than a brief suspension, and Veronica finds his antics both hilarious and kinda hot. And indeed, J.D. is allowed to return to school without any consequences, which makes it pretty easy for him to murder three students before attempting to blow the whole place up and finally committing suicide via bomb vest. You can probably see why this film didn't age well as a comedy, but aged fantastically as a grim portent of the dark future to come.

I, like, went to Twitter and I was like "Ah, Notre Dame is—" [Church bell sound effect, eyes go wide] NO. I was like, "this Gothic-ass-cathedral has been standing in France for like one thousand years, but it's gotta come down today. When I'm uploading a Notre Dame joke. Which— how many of them are out there?" ...Some great memes came outta that."
JonTron, recounting a particularly unlucky instance of this trope
