Memorable Moments


  • Chett: It's only a locker. It's not like I took a whiz in it.
Blitzkrieger: We Germans do not appreciate the jokes about the vhizzing.
  • Cardinal Carnage: Give me one extremely good reason why I shouldn't crush you like a crouton.
Wyatt: Okay, I'll level with you. We have this magic genie who grants us wishes and she gave Chett and me these cool wrestling powers, but they only work when we're together. So my brother's going to end up in a body cast if I can't get in there and activate the magic!
Cardinal Carnage: Oh. Go on, then. (wipes away a tear) I had a magic genie once.
