  • Quotes

    • Handy: Even now, he (The Tick) sulks like Achilles in his tent.

      Everyone stares blankly at him.

      Handy: Achilles? The Iliad? It's Homer??? READ A BOOK!

    • Arthur: (distracting the bad guys) My name is Arthur, and this is my diversion.

    • Mayor Blank: Everytime we flash the Die Fledermaus signal, he disconnects his phone and leaves town for a week.

    • The Tick: Arthur? Arthur... oh, yes! I used to have a sidekick named Arthur! But he sidekicked me out of the apartment!

    • Handy: Don't just stand there! Eat his head!! See? He's eating your head and I can still talk! He's eating, I'm speaking! He's eating, I'm speaking! How do we do it??

    • The Tick: We need a battle-cry.
      Arthur: A what?
      The Tick: You know, a cool thing was say before entering battle.
      Arthur: Oh, you mean 'Not in the face! Not in the face!'?
      The Tick: Hmmm, lacks force, chum. What we need is something like... 'Spoon!'
      Arthur: Huh?
      Tick: Spoon!
      Arthur: I don't get it.
      Tick: Spoon!
      Arthur: Whatever. I'm just the sidekick.
