Episode Quotes
Gadget Gal: Boy, you Orientals are strict.
Everyone: Hey!
Gadget Gal: What? It's not like I called them cat-eaters.
Everyone: Hey!
Gadget Gal: Oh, they eat cats and I'm the monster.
Concierge: For what it's worth, she's not actually racist for her age.
Impresario: I'm pretty sure she is.
Concierge: Shhh.

Tim's Mom: Okay, yes, we did hurt a lot of people. Bad people.
Tim's Dad: Yes. Mostly bad people. And some people who, you know, just got in the way.
Tim's Mom: I guess you'd call them "innocent bystanders."
Tim's Dad: Yes. You could call them that.

Hotwire: Prock, should we arrest them? Or something?
Prock: For what? Lying to their son?
Impresario: My momma never lies to me. She tells me that I'm God's most beautiful creation. And she is right.
Frantic: My parents told me that when I was in my momma's belly, I ate my twin. They would tell me that a lot.

Prock: And by the way, right now you're plenty safe with us. I told Frantic to do recon.
Frantic: And I've been doing reckonin' every since. I reckon when this is over, weh should have catfish. I reckon we're in for a cold snap, and I reckon I should get some new headshots done because I'm about to be famous.
Prock: Wait, so you haven't been doing recon?
Frantic: I have not, because I do not know what that means.

Perfectman: I have no idea what the Awesomes are up to, or what you, Dr. Malocchio, are trying to pull. But I don't need ideas. I never have.

Muscleman: On the bright side...
Prock: Don't say German porn.
Muscleman: Well then the glass is half-empty.

Muscleman: No, you want your most powerful for this shiz. That means me. I'm not called Muscleman just because I'm a man. I'm also strong.

Gadget Gal: I'm loathe to use the "N" word...
Everyone: Don't!
Gadget Gal: I hate ninjas.
Everyone: Ohhh...

Muscleman: This is bad news.
Prock: Why? Your German pornography can't help us?
Muscleman: No. I left it in the car.

Cultural References
Prock: You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy then in... the suburbs.

Obi-Wan Kenobi says this line in Star War IV: A New Hope, referring to the Mos Eisley spaceport on Tattooine.

Muscleman: Like Jedi, but without all the merchandise.

Within the Star Wars mythology, Jedi Knights are defenders of justice who can tap an extra-corporeal power called The Force.
