Fozzie Bear: Boy, did I go to a bad seafood place last night. The catch of the day was salmon-ella. Wocka wocka!
Jack Black: (tied to a chair) Aw!! That joke's like 50 years old!
Fozzie: So how 'bout those shopping centers? You seen one, you seen a mall! Take it!

We are the only humans resisting the Yeerks.
We may be the only hope that Earth has.
We have a lot on our shoulders.
Which is why I really, really, really did not see why I had to have more suffering piled on.
Wasn't I under enough stress? Life wasn't bad enough? We had to have... square dancing?
Square dancing! The horror!

First of all, thank you, Kevin Hart. It’s really great to be here. Sitting and listening to you yell your jokes over the last hour is the hardest time I’ve ever done.
Martha Stewart, Justin Bieber comedy roast

It was at that point that I took a spoon and shoved it up my ass. Because if I was going to be in that much pain, I was going to do it to myself.
Lewis Black on the 2001 Super Bowl Half Time show with *NSYNC, Aerosmith, and Britney Spears

To be dead... to be nothing... to watch'' Neptune Men no more!

I awakened to find myself here in the Royale Hotel, precisely as described in the novel I found in my room. And for the last thirty-eight years I have survived here. I have come to understand that the alien contaminators created this place for me out of some sense of guilt, presuming that the novel we had on board the shuttle about the Hotel Royale was in fact a guide to our preferred lifestyle and social habits. Obviously, they thought this was the world from which I came. I hold no malice toward my benefactors. They could not possibly know the hell they have put me through; for it was such a badly written book, filled with endless clichés and shallow characters. I shall welcome death when it comes.
Col. Richey's Apocalyptic Log, Star Trek: The Next Generation ("The Royale")

Spike: Hey, after we save Fred, we should hit the West End, take in a show.
Angel: I've never seen Les Mis.
Spike: (scoffs) Trust me: halfway through the first act, you'll be drinking humans again.
Angel, "A Hole in the World"

Mycroft ("Do You Hear the People Sing" blares over phone) Sherlock, please. I beg of you. You can take over at the interval.
Sherlock: Oh, I’m sorry, brother dear, but you made a promise. There’s nothing I can do to help.
Mycroft: But you don’t understand the pain of it – the horror! (Sherlock hangs up)

Don't play that song, that achy breaky song
You know I hate that song a bunch
And if you play that song, that nauseating song
It might just make me lose my lunch!
"Weird Al" Yankovic, "Achy Breaky Song"


Staggering into the silence of the theater lobby after the ordeal was over, I found a big poster that was fresh off the presses with the quotes of junket blurbsters.' It will obliterate your senses!' reports David Gillin, who obviously writes autobiographically. 'It will suck the air right out of your lungs!' vows Diane Kaminsky. If it does, consider it a mercy killing.

Here's a nice quote for the box art: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is a game so intense it literally, physically assaults you. Because after playing for the four or five hours necessary to complete it, it gave me a headache like I'd been skullfucked with Pinocchio's splintery todger.

JLo was in the cinematic human rights violation called Gigli, so this isn’t surprising.

Chris: Do you think anyone has ever done a two-part review of Barb Wire before?
Matt: I can imagine a scenario in which someone passed out from lack of oxygen to the brain about an hour in.
—Chris Sims and Matt Wilson on Barb Wire

As a piece of fundamentalist Christian propaganda, the Left Behind trilogy is surprisingly effective, mainly because you'll be desperately praying for the Rapture to pull you out of your seat by about 15 minutes in.

And if you want to see something that will make your head explode, then watch Angelina Jolie sing an a Capella version of the The Rolling Stones' I Can’t Get No Satisfaction. That is a crime against humanity.

Playing Killer Instinct was like arguing with a taser.

We thought we danced to the music of the spheres, while all along it was St. Vitus's Dance, diseased firing of rotting neurons in dying limbs. And now we have fallen once again to a new dance, the Danse Macabre, Dance as Memento Mori. We have been tricked, this game has been a Pied Piper of Hamlin, and we have, like children, followed the lilting tune of the pipe for far too long. Now we see that we are dancing to our graves...
Dr. El Sandifer on Power Pad Dance Aerobics (NES)

I have no memory of last year’s Ubisoft conference. I’m told that when the medics finally arrived, I was in a state of catatonic shut-down, common in trauma victims. My psyche had endured such an immense shock, it simply refused to allow any further input. The jokes were that bad.
IGN on Mr. Caffeine's performance presentation at E3 2011.

I managed to read this entire book from cover to cover without leaping out of the nearest window and plummeting to my death. That is a twist.
Joe Ford on Doctor Who New Adventures, Strange England

erfh;oerfA:hAHRfAFwe ... Sorry, I was cleaning the vomit off my keyboard.

Ouch, that was painful. So very, very lame.

"The controls are kinda like, y'know, ridin' a bike: once ya learn, ya never forget. Except, like, in dis situation, somebody popped da tires an' pissed all over da floor, an' dey ripped the handlebars off an replaced them with fuckin' spikes. And, uhh... they bent da wheels up, da metal 'n da wheels, dey bent em all up, an' the frame—"

This was not made, it was committed. This cannot be screened, it can only be inflicted.
Oancitizen, on Sweet Movie.

I had to call the suicide prevention hotline last night because of R.O.T.O.R. They told me to do it.
Best of the Worst on R.O.T.O.R. (1987)

Mike: I wanna be someone that gets killed by a movie. It's happened before: A guy got killed by Avatar because it was so, like, an immersive experience that his heart just went, "Fuck this."
Jay: Well, a lot of people died in the nineties when there was the rise of the gang-banger movies. The Boyz n the Hood ripoffs.
Mike: But they were killed in the theater by gang violence. I wanna be killed by a movie. Like, Avatar killed that guy. I want an Adam Sandler movie to kill me.

Kidnapped prostitute: I will help you. I will. As long as you promise that after I help you, you let me go home to my baby!
Plinkett: Ohhhh... I promise. I just...need you to help me. (unveils suspicious-looking bag) Now, this might be quite disturbing to you...
Prostitute: Oh God. What is it?
Plinkett: I need you to see order to help me!
Prostitute: (whimpering) God, no!
Plinkett: Please... I need to show you it....It's called Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
Prostitute: ...-w-WHAT?! Star Wars?!!
Plinkett: I need you to see it in order to help me. Just get in the chair that's over by the television set. I'm gonna put the movie on and you're gonna watch it, you understand me?! LOOK at me! YOOOOOU'RRRRRRE GONNA WAAAAAATCH IIIIIIIIIIT!!

Is the cameraman dead? Am I dead? Let me check my pulse. Yeah. This movie killed me. (collapses)
JonTron on Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Spoony: A'ight, let's do this. This thing is gonna suck either way.
Pat: Well, thanks for your approval!
Spoony: No, I mean the movie; it's gonna blow really hard.
Pat: (unfazed) Yeah, yeah.
Spoony: This is gonna hurt. A lot.
Pat: Pfft, it'll be painful.
Spoony: No, it's gonna be like fuckin' thumbscrews.
Pat: Eh, eye-gouging maybe.

That was the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound the first time I saw Sonic turning into a werewolf... The Spoony One makes it now.

This episode is like getting your teeth done — by having someone go through your eye sockets.
SFDebris on Star Trek: Enterprise, "Carpenter Street"

Forget The God Delusion, God Is Not Great, or the writings of Epicurus, this episode is the greatest evidence that logically disproves an all-powerful, all-knowing and all-loving God. If Epicurus was alive today, his famous quote would read "Is God willing to prevent 'Fear Her', but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh 'Fear Her'? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"

This song is so bad, it's making my hair come out in clumps. And my nose is bleeding a little.
Todd in the Shadows on Mario's "Break Up"

Mid-way through the song, Taylor Swift delivers one of the most bewilderingly awful 22 seconds I think I've ever heard in a pop song. I could spend the same length of time with my hand on a lit stove and come out with less pain.
Todd in the Shadows on "Shake It Off"

I'm only on page four. This comic is 48 pages long. Expect a lot of crying in this episode.
Linkara, on the comic book of Bimbos in Time

Ass - Intolerable Ass!
Raoul de Chagney (via title card), on Dario Argento's The Phantom of the Opera, The Phantom Reviewer

I was tortured until
I could hardly sign my name
And listening to you
Felt pretty much the same!

    Western animation 

That was so terrible, I think you gave me cancer!
Calculon on Bender's acting ability, Futurama

Wow, that was the worst piece of crap I've ever seen! My ass is actually sore. MY ass is actually sore!
—Paraplegic Joe Swanson, on Peter Griffin's romance film Steel Vaginas.

You know when Poison Ivy had us tied up with those poisonous vines? The ones with the really sharp thorns? This is worse.

    Real life 

Then, I calmly took the DVD out of the drive, and clutching it to my chest, went outside and sat in the middle of the road, where I immolated myself like that photo of the Chinese monk.

Bleach: More fun to drink than to watch!
