  • Quotes

    • Brock: Uh, geez, this place reeks. What's this guy doing in there?
      ShoreLeave: The guy is Peter Schumpmaker. Lord knows what a schump is, but you can bet your bippy his ancestors made them. What he's doing is far worse than crafting fine shumps.

    • The Monarch: Sweet! So let's go with my plan to cover his compound in sticky hot sugar! Leaving him and his family to be devoured by ants! And those little ones...
      Henchman 21: You mean gnats?
      The Monarch: No.
      Henchman 21: Chiggers?
      The Monarch: Chiggers!
      Monstroso: No, that plan was stupid. My plan is clean, elegant, classic. We take him down as one would take down a Mafia don. Cigar?
      The Monarch: No! So then we're going with my plan to just put him in a bag and beat him with a rake?
      Monstroso: No, that was also stupid.

    • Dr. Mrs. the Monarch: Monstroso! That's what this is about? He's king of the double cross. I mean, think about it. He's a lawyer and a super villain. That's like a shark with a grenade launcher on his head.

    • Brock: We had to make sacrifices.
      Dr. Venture: Like covering yourselves in rotten eggs. Do you know how bad you smell?
      Brock: No, ass! Like living next to the boys for a year and not being able to tell them that they're safe. That kinda sacrifice!
      Hunter: I had my pud removed, then reattached.
      ShoreLeave: I pretended I became a religious fanatic.
      Sky Pilot: I pretended to be in love with ShoreLeave.
      ShoreLeave: Oh! And I pretended I liked having sex with him every night.
