Lines That Get You Every Time?


My name's Runt, but my master calls me Stupid.

Skippy: But Aunt Slappy, those were cartoons, and this is real life!
Slappy: (looks at the audience) Don't tell him, he might crack.

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot: (to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb") L.A. town is falling down
While the ground
Moves around
We won't let it get us down
We're Californians

Slappy: T'was the day before Christmas, in Winter's deep freeze,
Though in Burbank, L.A. it was ninety degrees

Dot: And I'm Princess Angelina Contessa Louisa Francesca Banana Fana Fo Foo---STOP! WHYCANIGTITBYGDDITRBBITWHYGOTTOSTOPITAAUUUUUGH!!!
Yakko: That's my cute little sister who said that!

Yakko: It's that time again!
Dot: To make fun of the Disney Channel?

(From "Wakko's Wish") Pinky: But Brain, if we were meant to fly, we'd be born with little bags of nuts.
The Brain: Pinky, you are a little bag of nuts.

The Brain: You've left the lens cap of your mind on again.

I also like the second time Yakko tells Dot the story of when she was born, just because of the voice acting and animation. But back in the comedic end of the spectrum, I also have to point to my sig.

Fuzzy-Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy-Wuzzy had no hair, so Fuzzy-Wuzzy changed his name to Ed Asner.

EVERY time Yakko says "Goodnight, everybody!" Particularly:

FLAMIEL: Yakko, can you conjugate?
YAKKO: Who, me?? I've never even KISSED a girl!
FLAMIEL: No, it's easy--I'll conjugate with you.
YAKKO: Goodnight everybody!
FLAMIEL: You don't understand. Let me go to the board and show you.
YAKKO: Don't look!

As well as pretty much all of the dialogue in "Turkey Jerky".

A month? What took so long?

Ah, ok. I thought you meant that you'd never even seen the show until recently.

True. Love the sig, by the way.

Wakko: Helloooooooo Swiss nurse miss!

reply

Pinky: Yeah, Brain, but will it roast marshmallows?
Brain: (Starts to hit Pinky as usual, but suddenly stops himself) It might!

That scene is funny enough in itself, but it's hilarious when you know the show and what Brain would normally do to Pinky.

Dave (The Werebeagle)
"If that's my nose, why does it look like your thumb?"

reply

Dot: We hung up our stockings so our names clearly showed
Wakko: In hopes that old Santa would drop a big load
Yakko: Good night everybody!

Miles Standish: Be gone pests and give me the bird!
Yakko: We'd love to really but the Fox censors won't allow it

Wakko: (holding a book) Do you swear?
Parking Meter Lady: Yes
Wakko: You shouldn't it's not nice

Giant Ralph: (after Dot pulls out a nose hair) Ow that smarted me!
Yakko: I seriously doubt that

Yakko: (To a king) We'll be right outside protecting you from the evil viper who looms in the shadows that will do horrible unspeakable things to you while you innocently slumber

Frera Warner, Frera Warner,
What's that mean? Keep it clean.
Yakko is a yaker
Wakko is a snacker
Dot's plain cute
so's this boot.

How come hot dogs come in packages of 8 and hot dog buns come in packages of 6?

Pinky are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Actually Brain I'd say the chances of me pondering what you're pondering are slim.
True.
When have I ever pondered what you've pondered?
To my knowledge never.
So what are the odds that I'm pondering what you're pondering right now?
Nill! Pinky so you are pondering what I'm pondering.
Yeah I guess I am.


Pinky are you pondering what I'm pondering?
I think so Brain but if we get Sam spayed we'll never have any puppies.

Pinky are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Sure Brain but burlap chaffes me so.

Brain are you pondering what I'm pondering?
We eat the box?
No Brain. We build a boat and then we eat the box.

Pinky are you pondering what I'm pondering?
I think so Brain but how will we get the Spice Girls into the paella?

Pinky are you pondering what I'm pondering?
I think so Brain but who would want to Pierce Brosnon?

Pinky are you pondering what I'm pondering?
I think so Brain but where are we going to find rubber pants our size?

Pinky are you pondering what I'm pondering?
I think so Brain but apply North Pole to what?

The opening song where they came up with variants to end it. This one always cracks me up because its such an old-term, but used comidically well:


"We're Ani-mani..."

"Totally in-sani..."

"Cock-a-mamie..."


P.S. "Cockamamie" means:
ridiculous, pointless, or nonsensical: full of wild schemes and ideas.

And my second favorite is the song, "Lake Titicaca". Never knew how they got away with that one.


I am an A minus student, and there isn't anything wrong with that.

"Uh oh, there's that bear again."

reply

I can't tell you why, but after not seeing this show for 8 years, I could always recall this line from Brain when they went to the World Leader Summit and landed on the roof of the building -

"Unfortunately, the roof is a treacherous sheet of ice."

every single time, I die laughing. I say it a lot, despite living in Los Angeles, where there could never ever be an occasion for such a saying. It's an in-joke with friends, as well.

reply

First of all, love Laura Roslin.

But also, I am curious what the joke is with that line? I might be really stupid not getting it. It took me a second to get the abovementioned Prince joke and now I'm dying laughing lol. This show was wayyyy cleverer than I ever even imagined lol!

reply

It's actually not in and of itself a joke, the line is just delivered by Maurice LaMarche is a funnily deadpan sort of way.
