  • Nostlagia Critic: So Arnold goes climbing on the roof after he instructs his daughter to go to the safest spot possible. In her room under her bed. Dude, this isn't a boogeyman drill, these are real fucking terrorists.

  • Nostalgia Critc: But he doesn't live alone. He lives with his cute little daughter named Jenny, played by Alyssa Milano. Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute. I always wanted to use this. (Takes out a tape player and hits "Play") Tape: Hello, this is the Nostalgia Critic. I realize that I missed pointing out in my Double Dragon review that the woman playing the gang leader was in fact Alyssa Milano. I acknowledge this obvious missed opportunity and apologize. However, if another event occurs where Alyssa Milano is featured in a stupid movie, I have prepared this joke. Who's the boss? I'll tell you who. Her agent, for picking such horribly god awful roles. The joke has concluded. Nostalgia Critic: Well wasn't that nice of me? Tape: This message will self-distruct in one second. Nostalgia Critic: Huh? (The tape blows up)

  • Nostalgia Critic: So as the credits roll, we find out that Arnold's name is John Matrix. Neo: Woah.

Lil: Maybe you could put a lot of napkins in your pants and use it like a diaper. Nostalgia Critic: That's even grosser. Phil: Maybe you could poop in your room and hide it in your toy box! Nostalgia Critic: OK, STOP, STOP! Look, whether you call it poopie or poo-poo or whatever, it's still shit! You're talking about shit!Knock it off, you're grossing me out!

  • Nostalgia Critic: But not even Angelica in all her evil could prepare you for the scariest, ugliest, most horrifying creation that Nickelodeon Studios has ever produced-Doug"!. Now perhaps some of you are wondering why I think so harshly of what appears to be a relatively harmless cartoon. Well, let's just say you knew someone with a very similar name. Someone who grew up with that name all his life. And happened to be raised at the exact same time this show came out. (leans into the camera) Do you think any jokes or funny remarks in connection to this show could possibly affect his life in any negative way? Do you? DO YOU?! (starts to imagine kids laughing at him) Kid: Hey, look! It's Doug Funnie Kid: Hey, Doug Funnie. Where's Patty Mayonnaise? Kid: Hey, Doug Funnie! On the way to school? Kids: (Chanting) You're Doug Funnie! (The Critic starts to crack up, as is evidenced by the faces starting to form) Nostalgia Critic: (snapping back to reality, the voices stop) Whoa!

But with that sai- (lifts his hands to reveal they're covered in blood)

  • Nostalgia Critic: (regarding Aaahh! Real Monsters) The story was about an academy of monsters whose job was to go out into the world, scare the daylights out of people, and return back to report their progress. Gee, wouldn't it be horrible if some other successful studio pawned that off as their idea? (cuts to the video cover of Disney's Monsters Inc.) Ha-bullshit!
