"No one will be admitted during the breathtaking car-parking sequence!"
Crow T. Robot, Mystery Science Theater 3000

"That fatal flaw in high-tech-based movies is the critical scene when the guy works on the computer. In Swordfish, they actually tried to make it look cool with a fast-paced jump-cut montage of [Hugh Jackman] as he programs to very loud DJ mixes. Dress it up and make it dance, but it's still a guy on a computer."
Kevin Murphy, A Year at the Movies

"Everything in “Quest for Fire” is writ large, but doesn’t quite deserve to be. That disconnect places the song pretty high on the unintentional comedy scale, but that’s also what makes it so entertaining."
Top One Million, review of Iron Maiden's "Quest for Fire"

"He made that scene last, what, five minutes? And all we do is stand there and stare at each other with the music blaring on the soundtrack. It's one of the most impressive scenes I've ever seen, let alone been involved in."

"You know something bad's about to happen when the slow-motion grocery carrying kicks in."

"As much as it pained me to watch John Glover being shorn of his magnificent Mane of Power, I liked that the producers understood that it was basically the defining element of his character, and that cutting it off was a really big deal. It’s almost like they’re in on the joke, even if it does come in this completely ridiculous scene where a burly dude in a wifebeater comes into the cell and Lionel goes 'do it' as the classical music kicks in.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville ("Covenant")

"This concern with embellishing reality is undoubtedly a sign of pride; but then, how one wishes sometimes that writers had a little more pride! And besides, isn't there more pride (and a lot more silliness too) in the way some authors tell the most insignificant events of their lives exactly the way they happened, naively convinced as they are that everything they have experienced is, because of this alone, full of interest and poetry?"
René Pommier in his analysis of the last lines of Chateaubriand's Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe

"EPIC MUSIC. Seriously, you're talking about video games. If you're going to use ridiculous music, then you might as well act enthused so it matches."
Chip Cheezum, one of criticisms of a video he retsupuraed

"Who wants PIZZA ROLLS?!" [theme music begins blaring]
Doctor Orpheus, The Venture Bros.

"Somehow, at her reduced scale, with all of her newfound focus, the subtle nuances of the strings straightening, spinning out into faintly new shapes took on a new significance once Mikuru showed her how to do it. A collection of crystals, various powdered substances, some proteins... And then it was transformed through a careful, deliberate process into a new shape, placed intentionally where it would be exposed to higher energies...

At the end of this process, Mikuru had transformed
things into cookies, through some amazing, slow, medium-scale fusion that Kuyou was delighted to analyze the intricacies of. She could spend millions of rotations examining it and its nuances, at least!"

"Once you hear this song
Dogs become wolves
House cats become lions
Salamanders become dragons
And everything you do decides the fate of the world"
YouTube user unknown2558isback on Requiem for a Tower

Holy shit! What is this?! Forged in God's very flames,
Do mine eyes tell me lies, a new Elder Scrolls game?!
Time is nigh, I must fly, venture forth on my quest!
Goodbye Ma, goodbye Pa, and goodbye Girlfriend's breasts.
I'll be off, Azeroth, catch you later, Hyrule,
I'll be gone, Albion, I'm no longer your fool!
Other crap filled the gap while I waited to begin...
The adventure of my life in the land of Skyrim!!
Harry Partridge, Skyrim

"Old and secret she had entered from a morning world, maybe a messenger. She praised the goodness of the milk, pouring it out. Crouching by a patient cow at daybreak in the lush field, a witch on her toadstool, her wrinkled fingers quick at the squirting dugs. They lowed about her whom they knew, dewsilky cattle. Silk of the kine and poor old woman, names given her in old times. A wandering crone, lowly form of an immortal serving her conqueror and her gay betrayer, their common cuckquean, a messenger from the secret morning."
James Joyce, Ulysses note 

Ladies and Gentlemen! You could have been anywhere in the world tonight, but you're here with us in New York City! Are you ready for a cabinet meeting?!

The way it lifts a load makes my heart explode. Its pivoting is riveting to me! It carries weight with such ease it leaves me weak at the knees. I love a lever endlessly!

May this sharpened edge bring me peace
The truth, freed from the arms of chaos, arrives slowly, methodically
A star in the sky, the Earth rumbles, a drone so sincere
And I’m not frightened, I just am
I’ve got the blade and I’m ready to shave
I’m not afraid, I won’t look away
Like the thunder and flames in a lovers’ embrace
I will clean the slate of the growth, shear the pain away
Hot Dad as the Chowder Man, "Ready to Shave"
