Season 1

    Tourist Trapped 
(first lines)
Dipper: (narrating) Ah, summer break. A time for leisure, recreation, and takin' 'er easy... Unless you're me. My name is Dipper. The girl about to puke is my sister, Mabel. You may be wondering what we're doing in a golf cart fleeing from a creature of unimaginable horror. Rest assured, there's a perfectly logical explanation.

Dipper: (narrating) Let's rewind. It all began when our parents decided we could use some fresh air. They shipped us up north to a sleepy town called Gravity Falls, Oregon, to stay at our great-uncle's place in the woods. My sister tended to look on the bright side of things, but I was having a hard time getting used to our new surroundings. And then there was our Great Uncle Stan. That guy. Our uncle had transformed his house into a tourist trap he called "The Mystery Shack." The real mystery was why anyone came. And guess who had to work there. It looked like it was gonna be the same, boring routine all summer. Until one fateful day...

Dipper: I'm telling you, something weird is going on in this town. Just the other day my mosquito bites spelled out "BEWARE."
Stan: That says "BEWARB."

Dipper: (reading Journal 3) Unfortunately, my suspicions have been confirmed. I must hide this book before he finds it. Remember, in Gravity Falls, there is no one you can trust.

Mabel: Oh, Norman, you can tell me anything. (thinking) Please be a vampire, please be a vampire!

Stan: Wanna hear a joke? Okay, here goes: My ex-wife still misses me... but her aim is getting better! (beat) Her aim is getting better! You see, it's funny because marriage is terrible.

Stan: You all know me, town darling Mr. Mystery. Please, ladies. Control yourselves.

Mabel: I made this sculpture with my own two hands! It's covered in my blood, sweat, tears, and other fluids!

Stan: This seems like the kind of thing a responsible parent wouldn't want you doing. *beat* Good thing I'm an uncle! Avenge me, kids! AVENGE ME!

Dipper: (approaching manliness testing machine) Time to manhandle this... man-handle.

Chutzpar: Hmmm, I smell... (sniffs) emotional issues.

Dipper: You keep telling me that being a man means doing all these tasks and being aggro all the time, but I'm starting to think that stuff's malarkey!
Manotaurs: (gasp)
Dipper: You heard me, malarkey. So maybe I don't have muscles, or hair in certain places, and sure, when a girly pop song comes on the radio, sometimes I leave it on! 'Cause dang it, Top 40 hits are in the top 40 for a reason, they're catchy!

    Double Dipper 
Mabel: My name's Mabel.
Pacifica: That sounds like a fat old lady's name.
Mabel: I'll take that as a compliment!

Wendy: (In Dipper's Imagine Spot) Oh, Robbie! You're a stupid, arrogant fraud! But kiss me anyway because you can play guitar!

Pacifica: Oh, Grenda, by the way, you sound like a professional wrestler.
Grenda: I wanna put her in a headlock and make her feel pain!

Rumble: Never underestimate that I have punches!

Dipper: Come on, no one even uses millimeters! That only makes you taller than me in Canada!

Summerween Trickster: You must trick or treat... or die.

Gorney: (cheerful) I've been twaumatized!

Stan: You know, kids? I've been thinkin'. At the end of the day, Summerween isn't about candy or costumes. Or even scaring people. It's a day when the whole family can get together at one place and celebrate what really matters: pure evil!

(A small boy cries and runs away)
Old Man McGucket: You can run, but I'll still be in your nightmares!

Stan: Sometimes I think: Is this all there is? Is life just some kind of horrific joke without a punch line? That we're all just biding our time until the sweet sweet, release of death?

Stan: See, I lied to you. In addition, I've been parking in handicapped spaces, shoplifting fireworks, and smuggling endangered animals across multiple state lines. Also, you're fat.

    The Deep End 
Mermando: There are some who call me (strums guitar) Mermando. This is because Mermando is my name.

Mabel: (taking pictures of Dipper giving Mermando mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) Hah! Blackmail.

Bobby Renzobbi: I know what you're thinking: Does it work for pigs? Ah ha ha, yeah it does work for pigs, stupid! Feel your pig's heartbeat next to yours! IT WORKS FOR PIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGS!!!

Stan: Dinosaurs aren't magic, they're just big lizards! Get off my back.

Old Man McGucket: So there I am, fighting a raccoon for the same piece of meat, when our mouths get close, and we kiss accidentally!

Craz: Radical!
Xyler: I also think it's radical!

    Gideon Rises 
Mabel: Looks like Mabel's going to have to be the hero of the family now. I'll defeat Gideon with my grappling hook!

Dipper: (to Wendy) What? You're leaving town? But we need you here!

Unnamed kid: (sobbing loudly) I hate Bear-O, mommy! I hate it!

Soos: Dudes, stay calm. I’ve been training for this movie my whole life. With all of the horror movies I’ve seen, I know literally everything there is to know about how to avoid zombies.
Zombie Behind Soos: (CHOMP!)
Soos: Second thought, gonna flip the script. Can I... eat your brains: Yay or nay? Seeing some ‘yay’ faces over here.

Romance Academy 7 opening text

     Blendin's Game 

Soos: (to Dipper and Mabel) Well, birthdays are supposed to be spent with the people who care about you. But you know what, that dude didn’t care about me enough to visit me once, let alone fight monsters through time and space like you dudes. I mean, you had a gladiator fight, just to make me happy. I’ve been being ridiculous this whole time. Whoever my dad was, he can take a hike. I know who my family is now, and it’s you dudes. Thanks for giving me the best birthday ever.

Teenager: It's Heaven's punishment for our terrible taste in everything!

     Northwest Mansion Mystery 

Pacifica: You wanna know why this room was locked up? This is what I found in here. A painted record of every horrible thing that my family's ever done. Lying, cheating, and then there's me. I lied to you just because I'm too scared to talk back to my stupid parents! You were right about me. I am just another link in the world's worst chain.
Dipper: Pacifica, I'm sorry about what I said earlier. But just because you're your parents' daughter doesn't mean you have to be like them. It's not too late.

     The Last Mabelcorn 
Mabel: Today I learned morality is relative.
Wendy: Guys, if you ask me, this whole thing is a serious load. Mabel's like the best person I've ever met. We tried getting that hair the good way. Now it's time we try... the Wendy way.
Grenda: Are you suggesting violence? Sabotage?
Candy: Mabel's not going to like this.
Wendy: Mabel doesn't need to know. Look, it's time we stop trying to be so "perfect" and be who we really are. We're crazed, angry, sweaty animals! We're not unicorns! We're WOMEN! AND WE TAKE WHAT WE WANT!

Dipper: Mabel, listen... I might not have all the answers. I'm not stylish, and I'm not cool, and I can't make pugs appear out of thin air. But I know one thing well, and that's you. And I know that even though you might act like it, you don't want to be in this fantasy world. You're scared of growing up. And who could blame you? I'm scared too. Look, real life stinks sometimes, I'm not gonna lie. But there's a better way to get through it than denial, and that's with help from people who care about you. It's how we've gotten through our whole lives. Just look.
Montage of the twins comforting each other plays
Dipper: We've always been there for each other. Mabel, I thought you were living a fantasy, but look at me! I actually thought I was gonna stay here and be Ford's apprentice! Spend my entire teens cooped up in a basement with a lab coat? How ridiculous is that? I don't know what's gonna happen in the future, but whatever it is, you don't have to fear, because we'll do it together! I'm not taking Ford's apprenticeship! We're traveled to heck and back to get you, and we're going back together! Leave this fantasy world. Let's beat Bill and grow up together!

Mabel: You mean it? You're really coming home with me?
Mabel: Sincere sibling hug.

Grenda: I hate my dumb heart for making me feel things!

Wendy: (kneels next to Dipper as she holds out her fist) Hey, you mean a lot to me, man.
Dipper: (he smiles and fist-bumps her) You, too.
Wendy: (Wendy switches hats with Dipper) Something to remember me by. (Gives Dipper a letter) Oh, and this. Read it the next time you miss Gravity Falls.

Dipper: If you’ve ever taken a roadtrip through the Pacific Northwest, you’ve probably seen a bumper sticker for a place called Gravity Falls. It’s not on any maps and most people have never heard of it. Some people think it’s a myth. But if you’re curious, don’t wait. Take a trip. Find it. It’s out there, somewhere in the woods… waiting.


    Journal 3 
Ford Pines: "'Trust No One.' What an absurd and paranoid idea. Trust shouldn't be given unconditionally, but it should be given a chance to be earned. There is strength in having the humility to work with and sacrifice for others - a strength I now realize was in my brother all along"

How well does it match the trope?
