J. Jonah Jameson: Spidey takes you down every time! No matter what you throw at him! You put him through the worst night of his life! Threw his girl off a bridge! And he still fought his way back! That’s who he is and why he’ll always beat you!

Terry McGinnis: Tell me something — Why were you so sure those voices weren't coming from you?
Bruce Wayne: Well first, I know I'm not psychotic.

Mordecai: Wait! (Mordecai points at Rigby) That's Rigby.
Rigby (confused): Huh? But-
Mordecai: I knew it was you dude.
Rigby: What!? Why didn't you say anything?
Mordecai: Ha! I just wanted to mess with you. Only the real Rigby whines that much.
Rigby: HA! In your face, Doug!
Mordecai: Plus, the real Rigby would never hug me.
(Now exposed, Doug tries to escape, but is quickly caught by Skips)
Regular Show, "Temp Check"

Chuckie: But Tommy, if I didn't do it, who did?
Tommy: Well, we don't know who broke the lamp, but we do know who did not broke the lamp. Phil and Lil couldn't have broke the lamp, on account of they were playing on the other side of the room. You couldn't have done it, 'cause you're head was hiding under a pillow. Angelica couldn't have broke the lamp, 'cause she was taking her afternoon nap. And I could've broke it, 'cause I was... Hey, wait a minute! Angelica, didn't you already take a nap this morning before you came over?
Angelica: Um... I took two naps today.

Angelica: Well...
Lil: And how do you know we hit the lamp when we ran away?
Angelica: Um...
Chuckie: And, and... how do you know all the other stuff you know'd?
Angelica: Uh, I... I...
Tommy: Angelica did it? You mean... you broke my lamp?
Angelica: Oh, brother! Do I have to tell you babies everything? All right, I admit it. I'm the one who broke the lamp, and I don't care! (laughs evilly)
