  • Chester's review of Twilight sums it up well enough.

 "And then the kids are like 'OH MY GOD I GET IT! (Pause) That kid is SUPERMAN!'"

    • "I smell pretentiousness! SHE'S THAT WAY!"
    • "And so, the girl and the vampire go on a date... THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEGINNING OF A JOKE DOESN'T IT ?!"
    • "And I'm like 'People from Egypt can tell you're a vampire! You don't hide it very well! All that's missing is a shirt that says 'I am a vampire, bite me!'"
    • "And the computer is like: "He's a bloodsucker! A creature of the night! Nosferatu!" And then the computer is like: "Do I have to spell it out for you?! A VAMPIRE!""
      • "And the girl is like, "Oh my God! ...That is SO HOT!""
    • "And his skin starts shining like diamonds! And the girl is like, 'Boy, some girls are lucky if their boyfriend gets them a diamond. But my boyfriend is COVERED IN DIAMONDS! Can I just wear you on my finger?!'"
    • So, the good vampire has to suck the evil out of her arm. And the father is like, "You have to stop sucking. You're sucking too much!" And the boy vampire is like, "That's nothing. You should see what she sucked on me!"
      • Hiyo!
      • Thank you, I'll be here all week.

      • "And Eight Bit Mickey! (Ding!) I love that guy."
      • And later... "And they all live happily ever after...ALL of them. The bird (CAW!), Carl (Meh), the boy (Wow!), the dog (Squirrel!), the chipmunk dog (indeed.), Muntz (BIIIIIIIIIIIIR- No,no, not Muntz. He's dead."
    • "OF COURSE! That's what all people should do! We should send all the old people in the sky. Than everybody would complain how slow they fly! 'Hey Grandpa, can your house can move any slower?!?!?!?!? Come on, step on the hellium.'"
  • Bum Reviews Watchmen:

 "And there's this atomic guy, who looks like he's trying out for the naked Blue Man Group! I was in the Naked Blue Man Group once! Apparently, I wasn't Jewish enough, whatever that means. And this blue guy, he can defeat anybody he wants, because everyone is distracted by his giganto penis! Seriously! Doesn't the guy put on any pants? My penis is blue too, but you don't see me flaunting it around! Okay, once or twice. Every Tuesday."

    • Later, when discussing Russians:

  I was in Russia once! They said I wasn't Jewish enough... or was that a brothel? It was a Russian Brothel! (Imitating Russian Accent) I will go down on you for twenty Rubles

  • The Bum Review of the The Day the Earth Stood Still remake: "So Reeves is like, 'Wow, there's two nice people on this planet! I better stop destroying it!' The only problem is... he doesn't know how... I guess this advanced alien race doesn't believe in Turn-Off buttons. Especially when it comes to destroying worlds, 'cause that's not important."
  • Bum Reviews Hancock:

 He defeats people by putting them up other people's asses! That better happen in the new Dark Knight movie! The Joker will be like "I am going to kill everyone!" and Batman will be like "You are going inside an ass!" Bloo-bloo-bloo-bloo-splut! THE END!

  • Chester arguing with his penis.
  • Chester deciding midway through his review of Hellboy II: The Golden Army that the whole thing was just a drug-induced hallucination, and checking himself into rehab.

  • His review of New Moon. "I'm going to go with the vampire guy." "Why?!" "He stared at me!"
    • "You're an idiot."
    • Just his impersonation of Edward Cullen sounding as bland and monotone as possible is pure hilarity.

    • "...And one of the leaders is DAKOTA FANNING! I always knew she was a vampire! She acted like she was 30 years old when she was only 5!" [holds up 4 fingers]
    • "I'm a good-looking teenaged girl. I love it when boys treat me like crap." "Dude, you can have her!"
  • In his review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, this line pops up:

  Chester A. Bum: "And so Harry becomes extremely lucky, because he drinks this luck potion! And I'm like: 'pfft. Yeah, who hasn't seen Red Dwarf?' What? I'm brushed up on my United Kingdom sci-fi/comedies, isn't everyone? Pfft. Savages."

  • ...Seriously? Seriously?!?! Not a SINGLE mention of his review of District 9?

  "....I am most perpleximated."

  • In the Terminator Salvation review, Chester shows off his computer which turns out to be a cardboard box with the word 'comput-tem-uter' on it. All he can get are emails on how to get his penius enlarged.
  • Chester's entire wanderings through Youmacon after taking a bit too much LSD. Probably the best bit is doing the Marx Brothers mirror routine with a Chester A. Bum cosplayer.
    • Which culminates in Chester running off with the cosplayer's change cup.

 Chester Cosplayer: He stole my chaaaange..!

    • And then they run into 90s Kid, then a Linkara cosplayer, and then both the Bum and 90s kid talk about how Linkara sucks. After that 90s Kid finds a 90s Kid cosplayer, and they have a Dude-off.
      • "Whoever can get the dude off each other first, wins! I'll be the dude!"

    • This exchange.

 Chester: [sees Harley Quinn and Harry Potter cosplayers pretending to burn a copy of Twilight] Twilight! That's THE GREATEST MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!

Harley: Burn it!

Chester: NOOOOOOOOO! IT'S THE GREATEST MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! ...wait, is that the book?

Harley: Yeah.

Chester: The book sucks!

 "I think this [LSD] is too strong."

  • "What's with all these movies showing their titles twice? First Terminator Salvation, now this. Do they really think we're gonna forget the title in five seconds? Actually, considering what I just smoked, that's not a bad idea."
  • His pointing out all the loopholes in the way the magical curses work in The Princess and the Frog.

 Chester: "What's with all the loopholes? Seriously, was this a fairy tale written by a lawyer?"

    • "Let's see if we can find Alan Menken in this forest! PLEASE find Alan Menken in this forest!"
    • "But then the dad is like, 'I'm a parent who's married in a Disney film! I'm DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!' And then he dies! Huh, what a shocker."
      • "But before he dies, he tells Tiana something very important! 'If you really want what your heart desires, just wish upon a star!' Heehee! That's the traditional Disney way! 'But that's only part of it! You have to work hard and save up all your money!' ...HUUUUWHAT?! You have to work in order to make your dreams come true?! ALL THESE YEARS I've been doing nothing but wishing upon a star and thinking that was gonna help me! But it turns out I have to WORK?! Disney lied to me! They lied to my childhood!!"
    • "Disney, just because you can kill off a main character, doesn't mean you should. If that's the case, why didn't you kill off Rosie O'Donnell in Tarzan?!?!?! That damn dirty ape.
    • A Big Lipped Trumpet Playing Alligator Moment!
    • Ray the lightning bug to save the day-ah!
    • Chester's interpretation of Friends on the Other Side:

 Facilier!Chester: I'll make a deal with you, Prince Naveen!

Naveen!Chester: Okay!

Facilier!Chester: I'm gonna turn you into a frog!

Naveen!Chester: Okay! Wait a minute...

Facilier!Chester: Too late!

Naveen!Chester: [poofs out of existance, a croak is heard]

    • "And then the evil father tries to kill the Big Bad Dragon! But he's like..!"


  • From his Alice in Wonderland review: "It was the most realistic movie I've ever seen. It's probably not the most realistic you've ever seen, but then, YOU'RE NOT ON DRUGS!"

Soldier: Fire our missiles at them!

  Magneto: Why is it that I don't trust you?

  • From Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
    • His extremely hammy impression of Voldemort.

 "Brrring me Harry Pottaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh."

    • "*Treguna Mekoides*" *Ahem* "I mean, *Oh-eh-oh, Ooooo~ooo oh*" *Ahem* "I mean, "Doo-doo-doodoo-doo-Dooo~oh"

  • Captain America:

 Mister Rogers: Won't you be my Avenger?

And then Mister Rogers becomes "Who'd Like to Roger Me?"

  • Dr Insano and Chester were a riot. They need to interact more often.
    • At the beginning of the video, when Dr. Insano introduces his new henchman, the Bum attempts an "Igor" impression.

 Chester: (looking over a tiny coffin) What tiny little people do you think have to die to fit in this?

Insano: (bleakly) I buried my first test subject rat in one of those...

    • Continually throwing Canadian coins to the ground at a con in Canada.
      • One time he throws the coin to the ground and it bounces and lands back in the woman's bag.
    • While shuffling through a giant box of video games, Bum goes: "Do you have that one game that the Spoony One really likes – uh, Final Fantasy 26!"

  Insano: Almost like the Japanese don't know what the word "Final" means.

    • They go outside to a group of nerds fighting and briefly join in, taking the advantage to reference Suburban Knights. The opponent distracts Bum by calling "change", Insano uses Spoony's "Two Magic" ploy (substituting "science" for "magic" naturally), and finally Bum surrenders by having the opponent tap his sword a la That Dude in the Suede.

  Insano: I have used science and ingenuity to defeat all who oppose me… (Watches the Bum flail around with a sword.) …whereas he is simply stupid.

    • Dr. Insano vs. Dr. Holocaust.
    • The way Bum answers a woman who asks if he and the Nostalgia Critic found the necronomicon.

  Bum: Oh, it's the most horrifying thing that's ever happened! I can't possibly talk about it unless it comes out on a Suburban Knights DVD hopefully in two weeks to a month, thank you for asking.

  Bum: That's how I got where I am!

 Insano: (upon seeing a game character named Spoon) What kind of stupid name is that?!

Bum: Role-playing? You mean where people dress up in different costumes and pretend they're someone else? That's stupid!

    • Dr. Insano is distracted twice by girls in uniforms, and Bum attempts to hit on a girl with a very flattering top only to be scared off by her rather muscular boyfriend.
    • All of their interaction with Keith Apicary.
    • The entire ending of the video. Bum tells Insano to give his "presiment's" speech, then hums "The Star-Spangled Banner" under the speech, getting louder and hammier to the point that Insano has to stop because he can't be heard (and because Spoony is trying hard not to crack up). By the end he's standing on a table engaged in a duet/competition-for-who-can-sing-loudest with Keith Apicary. Insano lets him get all the way through the song before telling him that was the wrong anthem.
      • Then in a Heartwarming Moment, Bum tries again and leads the entire crowd in singing "Oh, Canada."
  • From Twilight : Breaking Dawn Part 1 :
    • The running gag of "It's Twilight," as the explanation for every illogical plot point.

    • "I'm Edward."
      • "SHUT UP!"
    • When telling us that Bella's baby is trying to kill her from the inside...

 Chester-as-the-baby : I WANT OUT OF THIS PRETENTIOUSNESS!!!

    • "And so the baby is born but it kills Bella in the process. All the girls start crying and all the boys break out the champagne."
  • From The Muppets
    • "It's time to Muppet show show! This is the Muppet Show! Muppet Muppet Muppet Muppet! Well you know the words."
    • This conversation...

 Chester!Kermit: "I really do love you!"

Chester!Piggy: "I know, this is how we end every Muppet movie."

Chester!Kermit: "Ready to make the audience cry like pansies with Rainbow Connection?"

Chester!Piggy: "Oh yeah!"

Chester!Kermit: "That's right audience, it's Toy Story 3 all over again!"

      • Just, the Bum's impressions of the Muppets are hilarious in general.
  • His review of the Critic vs. Angry Video Game Nerd battle. "You give him back his funny or there will be Nerd-on-Bum action! ...wait, does that mean what I think it means?"
  • From The Borrower Arrietty:
    • Chester comparing the size of the Borrower to Danny Devito's testicle.
    • Points out that since this is a Miyazaki film, no one will be surprised by the weirdness in the film.

 Chester!Sho: It's a Miyazaki film. We're never surprised by anything. Two girls rode inside cat that was a bus and that barely got a reaction.

Chester!Arrietty: Miyazaki is weird.

Chester!Sho: Yes. But he is awesome!

Chester!Arrietty: Awesome!

    • "But the girl can't help but keep up with her relationship with the boy. It's kinda like Twilight, only we give a crap".
    • When Sho tells Arrietty he is dying:

 Chester!Arrietty: You're dying?!

Chester!Sho: Yes. However, I am going through an operation. They say there's a very slim chance that it could help...

Chester!Arrietty: You live don't you?

Chester!Sho: How you know that?

Chester!Arrietty: Anytime a character is going through operation they always come out okay.

Chester!Sho: Not always.

Chester!Arrietty: Name five.

Chester!Sho: Okay. (Puts up a finger for each word) Shut. The. Hell. Up. Bitch!

    • Near the end:

 Chester: So we're off to see all the other Borrowers that exist in the world...

(the words "The End" appears, music plays in the background, credits the animators to the film to "A bunch of other Japanese names you'll never be able to pronounce well.")

Chester: Oh. I guess that's it.

    • "Arrietty is still a great movie. It teaches us some much like...If you see little people you're not necessary on drugs. And that something I really need to hear!"
  • From John Carter:
    • Chester has the people from Helium talk like, well, they're on helium!
  • From The Hunger Games
    • Doing the entire review in Jittercam
    • At the end of the review:

 Chester: "But the guy in charge is like:"

Chester!Guy in Charge: "I'm going to go find a sequel."

(Chester turns around and walks into the wall)

Chester!Guy in Charge: "...Ow."

  • From The Avengers
    • The Avengers is so good, Doug has to break character by taking of the hat and wig while telling everyone to see the movie. Twice.
    • Chester compares the Helicarrier to Battleship and calmly remarks that he saw that trailer and reassures the audience to remember The Avengers came out and everything will be okay.
      • The two appearances of Chester in the guise of comic book nerds that provide exposition on the bits of the movie only die-hard comic fans would know.
