Do you regularly use any TMNT slang, quips, or quotes? My favorites include "spookular", "wakey wakey, wake up dude", and "cats & kittens". (Bonus points if you know where those are from!) And of course, the ever-popular "dude". Some of it is deliberate, but some is habit, since I've been watching the OT cartoon and movies since I was a kid. Anyone else do similar?

I stopped using "dude" around 8th grade so on 2000/2001 though I didn't say Dude because of the turtles. But around 2006 I tried to incorporate some phrases from the old show actually. Of course when I say them I"m not speaking seriously its either tongue in cheek or I'm trying to be over the top.

I haven't done it as much anymore but it used to be stuff like "exactamundo" "tubuloso" and of course "cowabonga".

Yeah, I do it to be silly, but I say these things all the time. T_T

Recently I read Shell Shocked, and ever since I say "holy frecoli" a lot, too. This has been added to the list which includes "holy guacamole" (from Mikey) and "oh my stars and garters" (from Hank McCoy). ^_^

I use dude alot, as well as exactamundo... just not sure if it was because of the turtles in particular.

My vocabulary has been so influenced by the TMNT that it's not even funny. "Dude" and "Awesome" have been so deeply ingrained that I don't think I'll ever be able to stop using them. When I get particularly excited I'm likely to shout "Awesome Nova!" To which my girlfriend will usually reply... "Chevy Nova?" (God I love her):lol:

Spookular- That was in the second the movie when Mikey and Keno both said pizza.

Wakey wakey, wake up dude- ?

Cats and Kittens- Hot-rodding Teenagers from Dimension X. I forget which Neutrino it was.

Admittedly, I don't have a TMNT mindset when I say my words, minus an occasional out of place here and there. "I have nightmares about birthday parties." "Tonight, I dine on turtle soup!" It's actually pretty funny when you're on a crowded bus and pretend to talk on you're cell phone and use these quotes in quck succession.

"Mondo tubuloso!" is a favorite of mine.

You may just be adding your own twist to the line...but incase you arent...That isn't what donatello says in the movie. He says "bossa nova".

"Dude" is all I use and I'm pretty sure it was from watching TMNT so much.

Oh shell, you mean I've heard it wrong all these years??

This is just like how for so long I thought that line in All Along the Watchtower was "come and dig my herb" when it's actually "plow and dig my earth".

*smacks forehead* :lol:

I still use Dude, and about 80% of Northern New England still uses "Wicked"...

sometimes I try to incoprate OT Raphael smartass quips while I'm talking to my brothers or friends just to see them go "the hell...?" :lol:

"Well dudes and dudettes I'd say that's pretty much a wrap" is something I use quite often.
"Something familiar, something...from the past", is used on ocassion.
I don't think I could go a day without actually using dude at least once.
Bitchin every once in a while, but I don't think that counts...

"This is getting monotanous" :lol: I remember that, when Rocksteady and Bebop were superheroes. I use that quite often. Thanks for reminding me.

Dude I use... Wicked and Awesome I think have run their course. Trust me, living in New England, think of 50 year old women after years of smoking croaking that out... shudder... never will you hear words get killed that fast. But cool never seems to fizzle with age.

who said this and when?

I don't know if the 4KIDs cartoon counts but I've gotten into the habit of saying "note to self_______" like Leo does in the show. :D

Gawd that Leo is such a cool dude! 8)

who said this and when?"Holy hippo spit!" is a recurring joke in the Mirage comics, first uttered by a bystander in issue #3.

Sometimes I say dude, probably I don't realize it, and awesome a lot. Definitely a few Raphael sarcasm quotes when the time is right, like "What a brilliantly original idea" or "You better get to talking, or I'm gonna get sarcastic!" and of course, "Does "go suck a lemon", hold any meaning to you?"

I think it's supposed to poke fun at the old Batman Tv series where Robin would exlaim ridiculous phrases whenever they were in trouble like Holy Ice box Batman, or Holy hippo spit Batman and that sort of deal.

That's what you get from a franchise that's able to laugh at itself.
