Chris: I guess the Turtles or April talked about him while they were down on the farm, but I feel cheated that this movie robbed me of Casey delivering a goggle-eyed "Your sensei's a giant rat?!"
Matt: There is a pretty funny moment where Elias Koteas looks at this talking rat, takes a second to understand what he’s seeing, then just accepts it and saves him.
Chris: I stand corrected; that is pretty great.
Chris Sims and Matt Wilson on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

"It's hard for me to pick a favorite minor character in this strip. I'm obviously a big fan of Prison Guard Who Takes Time During Crisis To Weave An Evocative Metaphor...But I think I'm going to have to go with Guy In Hat in panel three, who's hanging out with Peter and MJ in some... room... where there are curtains and a floating flat-screen TV, and he's just going to town on a sandwich. 'Earth tremor? State prison? Sounds like someone's problem, but it sure ain't mine! [CHEWING NOISES]'"

"Go about your business, citizens! I am just a random guy running down the streets with a bloody fireaxe! Nothing to see here!"

Remember how in The Shadow Over Innsmouth the fact that the townsfolk secretly worship Dagon, are turning into fish and repeatedly knob deep ones was the big revelation that drove the narrator mad? Well, Innsmouthers show up in this game, someone points them out to us and goes "They look weird, don't they? It's because they worship Dagon and are turning into fish. Besides that, they're alright lads, but I wish they'd stop flooding the economy with all that gold they get from those deep ones they're always knobbing." It just throws me how everyone including the protagonist takes this all in stride! The game has a rather insipid combat element as partial justification for the open-world, so every now and again we get attacked by reject Silent Hill: Homecoming monsters in a basement and no one seems to give a shit! "Yeah, pesky buggers aren't they? We kinda got used to them after we barricaded off the seven or eight streets they hang out on." I'm sorry, how many streets!? What are the fucking cops doing!? Shooting at me, apparently because I got confused and pointed my gun at a deranged heavily tattooed deep one cultist as he walked nonchalantly down the street to the chemist.

You are at the sun. You see nothing of interest.
You know, I'm pretty sure that if I were standing on the surface of the Sun, whatever I'd be seeing would be of particular interest. Then again, maybe I had already figured anyone standing on the surface of the Sun would be blinded a skillion times over. But I'm guessing not.
Space-Man and its present-day commentary, The Early Years

"She's just being Pinkie Pie."
Several different characters from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

"Action movies have conditioned us to associate an actor's indifference toward devastating destruction with badassedness, rather than, you know, being a soulless shell of a human being. Combine this trend with the Russian people's legendary inability to give a single shit and the result is the poster for Stalingrad, in which a giant plane is set to crash just above the scene and not one of the eight actors is even looking at it. Some men just don't care to watch the world burn."

Narrator: At that moment, Polnareff's hair went crazy.

Jotaro: It always does that.
Joseph: It always happens.
Polnareff: No, even so, this is different, look at this length! It's tall, taaalll! (Polnareff's hair reaches into the stratosphere.)
Narrator: Po-polnareff's hair became really, really long but that didn't phase them.
Vaguely Recalling JoJo, episode 20

Rick: Who cares, Morty? Global acts of terrorism happen every day. Uh, here's something that's never happened before: I'm a pickle.
Rick and Morty, "Pickle Rick"

Wasp: Am I losing my mind here or are insects helping with the removal, Jason?

"The details of my life are quite inconsequential. Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring, we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds—pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve, I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum ... it's breathtaking—I highly suggest you try it."
