  • Quotes

    • Nostalgia Critic: So the Sesame Street gang goes looking for him. The gang consisting of Oscar and (Let's out a happy gasp when he sees the other Sesame Street characters) Grover, The Count, Cookie Monster and Bert and Ernie. (Clears his throat) Uh, as you notice Bert and Ernie sharing the exact same plane. That's because they also share the exact same bed. (Awkward laugh) I can't do it. I can't make fun of Sesame Street. It's the first show I ever saw. I'm sorry about the gay joke Bert and Ernie. Whatever your sexual preferences is none of my business. I'm sorry Big Bird, I'm sorry Grover, I'm sorry everybody. (Starts crying) I love you all. You're all so beautiful and innocent to me. You are childhood. I can't do it. I'm finished, I'm done, get someone else to review the movie. I can't do it. (Walks off screen) Hey you. You want twenty buck? Go review this movie.
      Chester A. Bum: Hooray! (Walks on screen) I am here to review...What's the name of this movie again?
      Nostalgia Critic: (Off screen) Follow That Bird.
      Chester A. Bum: Oh my god. This is the greatest movie I've seen in my life.

    • Nostalgia Critic: (Let's out a happy gasp when he sees Big Bird with Snuffleuffagus) It's Snuffleuffagus. I remember Snuffleuffagus. He's like a big, hairy Dumbo, but with depression.
      Big Bird: Snuffy, I guess this is goodbye.
      Snuffleuffagus: Oh Bird.
      Nostalgia Critic: Oh no, Big Bird, don't leave. Don't leave Mr. Snuffleuffagus.
      Snuffleuffagus: I hate to see you go. (Wraps his trunk around Big Bird)
      Nostalgia Critic: (Happy gasp) He's got the little trunk that wraps around his..(Slaps himself in the face) What the hell is wrong with me? I'm the Nostalgia Critic. Not the "Pussified, emotional, cries over every Sesame Street related motion picture epic where every person, puppet and occasional crappy, animated animal tugs at your heart strings" Critic.

    • Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, would you please rise for the grouch anthem.
      Oscar: No, no, no. With the grouch anthem, you stay sitting down.
      Nostalgia Critic: (Happy gasp) Oh my god, it's Oscar. I haven't seen him in years. He's like the first puppet I've ever seen in my entire life. He's like totally responsible for the grumpy personality I have today. I just looked up to him, I just loved him and..(Pause) I'm sure this movie is going to blow despite him.

    • Nostalgia Critic: This logically brings us to Sesame Street where we, of course, come across, (Big Bird appears and he gasps happily) Big Bird, oh my god. He's just as big as I remember him. Some things never change when you're a child...(Pause) It's a man in a costume. A big, lovable, heart warming costume.

    • Chester A. Bum: Cookie Monster ate his car because he thought it was a cookie. I thought my car was a cookie once, only it wasn't a cookie or a car. It was a man.

    • Chester A. Bum: Miss Finch is like "I have to take you back home." And Big Bird is like "Dude, what is your deal?" And the others are like "This is his home. Go back to Russia."

    • Chester A. Bum: Can you at least tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Nobody seems to know.
