"IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII-OOOOOOOOOO!!!! Yes sir!"

"Oh great, Russel Brandt is here."

"Are you sure we're not watching an episode of Ax Cop?" (major win)

Every time they mentioned mending nets.

"We are the Gods now, my frieeeeeeeeennndddssssss."

"Can you tell the queen I want a divorce now that she's ugly?"

"That'll be fifty bucks."

"Zeus told that eagle to crap on the hood of his car."

"Who lit the giant incense candle? It's like the fury of a thousand college dorm rooms - yet we can still smell the pot!"

"Hey, he got a job as a boat carpet at least."

I'm paraphrasing most of these, because I couldn't really work up the interest to pay full attention to this riff (or the terrible, terrible movie it accompanied); I'll have to watch it again sometime. Solid work though.

The underwater funeral home was not a good idea.

They threw Bernie Madoff's soul in.

Wilson!

My armor has the most lens flare therefore I shall decide!

New Voldemort, now with 100 percent more nose.

I THINK I'm in this movie, I dunno...

Liam Neeson: This son knows no love for me.  He's no different than any of the others who have turned their backs on us.
Kevin: I mean how many rapes does a guy have to commit before he gets some respect?

Mike's song about how newborn clothing is sized

Dip your cheddar biscuit into a bowl of Kraken chowder, thank me later.

Mike's song, and Bill's bit about black vs. white pegasuses, were worth the price of admission based on just those two.

Mike's song was special because it plays to a certain comedy theory I've heard Simpsons writers describe a few times.  Basically you take a joke, and it's kinda funny at first.  Then you keep it up, and it becomes tiresome and unfunny.  But if the joke is just right, and you keep it up still longer, it becomes hilarious.  The guys at The Simpsons said their best illustration of this is in the Cape Fear episode where Sideshow Bob keeps stepping on the rakes.  I thought that Mike's song was a perfect illustration too.

YES!  Hahaha!  I loved that line yet somehow forgot it.

Funny. Jon Stewart taught me that (not personally).

Mike Birbiglia talks about something similar that he learned from David Letterman. First it's funny, then unfunny, then funny again because of the shared experience of it being unfunny.

I loved the scorpion king rant as well as the "hey guys get this, I'm actually a Libra!"

And during the witches scene there was a shot showing a laughing witch with really saggy breasts. Kevin: Make me a cocktail will ya hun?
I am Ambassador Phantom, from the planet Krankor! I am rapidly approaching your planet... in the warship, which you have just seen. I will arrive tomorrow night at precisely eight o'clock. At that time I shall make my wishes known to you. You will obey them... or die! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

"Well, time to get into makeup and do 'The View'" is going on my Top Ten Greatest Riffs of All Time list. Maybe even Top Five.  :clap:

The Elton John one was pretty funny too.

"Why, it is Scorpius Roto-Scopious, the progenitor of all digital effects."

Funny to me mainly because I found the rotoscoping in Ralph Bashki's Wizards and Lord of the Rings pretty off putting, and I actually researched the technique a little at the time to find out why. There's a point at which animation can be too "realistic" in it's movements and it just looks strange compared to everything else.

Realistic looking certainly wasn't the problem here though.

Surprised no one mentioned the medusa/lady gaga line. It was Kevin saying something like, "A headless medusa flailing about...Lady Gaga is taking furious notes!"

"It is history!" But it's in Howard Zinn's book, so it probably isn't true.
