Best of The Tick

Image hosting by Photobucket In honor of The Tick being on Toon Disney at 11pm, starting Monday, June 13, I bring you some of The Ticks best quotes

  • “And so, may evil beware and may good dress warmly and eat lots of fresh vegetables.”
  • “Life is a big wild crazy tossed salad, but you don’t eat it, no sir! You live it!”
  • “You know Arthur, it’s really been quite a day. On the outside, on the surface, oh sure, we were pursued by Swiss industrial spies, trapped in the belly of a whale. But what really pursued us? Where were we really trapped? C’mon Arthur! Get Meta with me! What pursued us were our own obsessions. I’m good, you’re evil. I’m a super hero, you’re a sidekick. I’m a woman, you’re a man. What does it all mean? Nothing! And where were we all trapped? I’ll tell you where Arthur! In the belly of love, love chum… LOVE.”
  • “Lab rat for your thoughts?”
  • “Gravity is a harsh mistress.”
  • “When evil’s afoot, and you don’t have any arms, you’ve got to do a little leg work. And when evil’s ahead, and you’re a little behind, you’ve got to stay hip. You’ve got to keep on your toes! You’ve got to kick a little–“
  • TV Reporter: Can you blow up the Earth? The Tick: Egad! I hope not! That’s where I keep all my stuff!
  • “Oh, I get it, spelling America with a ‘K’, are we?”
  • “Let’s just see how you fare against two bits of flat, shiny America!”
  • “Rugged, self-assured, adult. These are the words that describe the man who wears a mustache. Yes, it says to the world, ‘I’m a man of action!’ Ah, but action tempered with maturity. Like a fireman… or somebody’s dad! Y’know, most of your world leaders have mustaches!”
  • “So once again, we find that evil of the past seeps into the present like salad dressing through cheap wax paper, mixing memory and desire.”
  • “Got to pull myself together… must defy laws of physics.”
  • “Aha, yes, I see… a choreographic conundrum. Whoa, well that was a little dancey. You know why super villains are so unhappy, Arthur? They don’t treasure the little things.”
  • “Hey! You in the pumps! I say to you, ‘Stop being bad!'”
  • “Roof-pig! Most unexpected.”
  • “Their Achilles’ heel is the noogie!”
  • “Eating kittens is just plain… plain wrong! And no one should do it, ever!”
  • “So the cosmic circus moves along, its tiniest clown gone to rejoin it once again.”
  • “This is one small step for The Tick, and one giant step for… say, a little bug. Or some guy who’s been shrunk to the size of a penny.”
  • “Don’t ever try to swim against the might tide of justice.”
  • “Y’know, evil comes in many forms, whether it be a man-eating cow or Joseph Stalin, but you can’t let the package hide the pudding! Evil is just plain bad! You don’t cotton to it. You gotta smack it in the nose with the rolled-up newspapaer of justice! Bad dog! Bad dog! And you don’t do it for money. No! You do it for love! You know, I’ve learned something this week… on justice and on friendship, there is no price. But there are established credit limits.”
  • “Let’s hang ten for justice!”
  • “Honk if you love justice.”
  • “Villains, I say to you now… knock off all that evil!”

And the number one saying: “Spooooooon!”

    “Gravity is a harsh mistress.”
    Yeah, d@mnit.
    I love The Tick! I’ll have to see if its on DishNetwork… so I can tape it.

  2. With every episode, virtually each one is chock full of great sound bites. Had that come out and been able to be on one of the stations, such as Cartoon Network, Toon Disney at night, FX, etc, it would probably have lasted much longer. Unfortunately, it was on at a time for children, when it impacts adults more.

    I thought so too – and, as we ALL know cartoons are wasted on kids… well, not all of ’em, but c’mon!
    I decided to look for them on DVD/VHS but no luck.
    Found a website: http://www.thetick.ws/cartoons.html
    which does have some bits and pieces… oh well.
