"You know, that bag of yours must be magic. It's always got just what we need."
Sheeta, Castle in the Sky

Shinji: ''Where did you get this?
TJ: Holdout Pocket technique. A little spatial fold tied to your personal space, good for keeping an emergency backup weapon or something handy. I also keep cold drinks in mine. It’s not a hard trick to learn. First year Weapon Theory stuff. I could probably teach you pretty quickly if you’ve got a gun or a knife you’d like to try it on.
A Crown of Stars, Chapter 53

I pull out one of my hatchets. I don’t even know where I get them anymore, they just come to me when I need them and vanish when they become ‘evidence’.
Asuka Langley Sohryu, Thousand Shinji

Dancer gestured theatrically upwards. The air above Dancer became simultaneously charged with energy and dead still. A tiny crack in the world was torn above him and a soulsteel rapier fell out from it, as though cutting itself from one world and into another.

[pulls a hammer from thin air] "Miles, I want you to have this. It will fit in your pocket."

Otacon: That's Link. He's the hero of Hyrule. That blade in his hand is called the Master Sword, also known as the 'Blade of Evil's Bane'. He also has a whole arsenal of items at his disposal—bombs and arrows, a shield, a boomerang, and a Clawshot. He's a force to be reckoned with.
Snake: Gear is only useful when it's used at the right time and place. Just lugging a ton of it around doesn't do you any good.
Otacon: ...I, uh... I wouldn't be talking if I were you, Snake.
Snake: What's that supposed to mean?
Otacon: You tell me, Mr. Utility Belt.

Sam: You don't even have pockets. Where do you keep all that stuff.
Max: In my sock.
Sam: You don't wear socks. Where do you keep them?
Max: That's... none of your damn business.

Helen: Um. Where did you get that mallet?
Mell: Whatdya mean? Mallets just happen.

Roy: Elan, where does Haley keep her arrows?
Elan: I dunno. They just sort of appear in her hand when she needs one.

Marena: They weren't elsewhere, they were Elsewhere.
Secret: ...I don't follow.
Marena: Really? Huh. Well, Elsewhere (capital E) is... well, a sort of blank space outside Creation. Nothingness. Not complete nothing, like the Void, but just... a place where nothing happens. So Exalted use it to store things in!

When you look inside [the tote bag], you perceive ten compartments of infinite size occupying the same space simultaneously. You were under the impression the human mind either just wouldn't process that sort of thing at all or would go mad from the attempt, but it turns out, it just sort of tickles a little.

Oh I’m sorry, Nancy, but did I just hear you say you didn’t want to lug something around?
Is a saddle really going to make that much of a difference when you’re already carrying around approximately twelve pieces of paper, two lockets (one of which is inside its own BOX,) an entire set of tuning forks, ten whole arrowheads, a fuckin music box, a horseshoe, a purse, a box of beads, a water canteen, and various other rocks and keys and shit?
Not to mention your first day here when i literally had you carrying around kindling and FIREWOOD ALL DAY AND YOU SAID NOTHING AT ALL
But a saddle is just NOT OKAY WITH YOU
— A blogger lampshading this trope in Nancy Drew: Secret of Shadow Ranch

Egoraptor: [Silver gets a Chaos Emerald] Where did he keep that? [Sonic gets a Chaos Emerald] Where did they keep THAT?
JonTron: In their butts!

"You're telling me that I could go into a sporting goods store in this world, buy a tent, and tell the devil in my magic lamp to turn that into ten Curaga spells? Do these spells take up tangible space, are they in a book or are they in my pocket? How does the character actually junction these spells to their hit points? Is it like a ring or a lotion or something? Where are your hit points located? I can also tell the Devil to refine his own card into 100 black holes, which I can then refine into the Demi spell, which is a great spell... but what's a black hole? Do you actually mean to say that I'm carrying 100 collapsed stars in my pants, and I got all that from a playing card?"
The Spoony One on Final Fantasy VIII's metaphysics, The Spoony Experiment

Wiz: This is an animation technique commonly known as the "magic satchel", though its existence as an actual thing is preposterous.
Deadpool: Oh yeah? Watch this!
[An elephant appears out of nowhere next to Deadpool, and trumpets]
Wiz: I hate you.
Deadpool: Aww, I hate you too.
Boomstick: Me too.

"From this bag here why I can pull most anything imag'nable
Like office desks and lava lights and Bert who is a cannibal."
Yakko Warner, Animaniacs

"Try to think of all the good times, like remember all the great stuff we used to pull out from behind our backs."
Timon, Timon & Pumbaa

"Where did you get that?"

Bumblebee: At least I can get this junk out of me. I was feeling kinda bloated.
[Electronic devices suddenly fall out of him, Prowl gives him a look]
Bumblebee: What? You said to pack the bare essentials!
Prowl: Since when are surround-sound speakers, a strobe light, and a hand-held media player "bare essentials?"
Bumblebee: You should've seen what I left back at the plant.
Prowl: Where did you even find room for all of this junk?
[Bumblebee taps his fingers uncomfortably]
Bumblebee: I'd... rather not say.
Transformers Animated , Nature Calls
