The funniest quotes from the 2012 series thread.
 
One thing that even the biggest hater of this version of the show must admit is that the 2012 series nailed the humor of the original Mirage comics, it was full of wisecracks and witty comebacks.

Let's name them.

From "The Gauntlet", in a move that surprised even Michelangelo, Donatello has assigned April to be bait in order to lure Pigeon Pete out. She plays her role not very convincingly. What follows is an argument of an old married couple.

Donnie: What are you doing?
April: You wanted me to be bait, I AM BAIT!
Donnie: That's not how bait talks!
April: How do you know what bait talks like?
Donnie: I know that bait doesn't talk back!
At hearing that, the other turtles come out their hiding places "Oooh-ing" Donatello for that remark.
Mikey: Oh no you didn't!

From "The good, the bad and Casey Jones" After following Raphael to the Turtles lair, Casey Jones faints when he finds out that Master Splinter is a huge mutated rat.

Raphael: Hahaha, big, bad vigilante is afraid of rats.
At which Michelangelo comes walking over with a cockroach, which had Raphael retreat into his shell completely with a startled yelp.
Mikey: Heh, just like you and cockroaches, eh Raph?

As soon as Karai appeared in "New girl in town" the series had its very own Catwoman to Leo's Batman. Their flirtatious verbal jabs at each other are straight out of the vocabulary of an old married couple.

Leo: Seems like I'm making a habit of saving you lately.
Karai: If only you could have arrived five minutes earlier!

Karai: SERIOUSLY? Raph has the hots for a big newt?
Leo: Yeah really, he does have some weird taste.
He starts nudging her to remind her of the fact that she's with a turtle and shouldn't be calling the kettle black.

Karai: Haha, you're adorable, stupid but adorable!
Leo: (Realizing she used the A-word) Wait do you really think I'm...

"We're not that kind of sub!" always gets me when I think about it.



And every suggestion that the Kraang can't handle gluten.

Tarris Vaal 10-06-2018 03:50 PM

Can't recall the episode, but there was one exchange between Mikey and Don that always made me smile.

Don holding up a Kraang data chip;
'Mikey, do you realise what this is?'

'Shiny!'


I agree though in principle though, 2012 was very good at little funny exchanges like that. Though credit where its due, I do think Rise has some good one liners as well.

The Great Saiyaman 10-07-2018 04:23 PM

From "Baxter's Gambit" The Kraang has brought out a kind of ray which causes objects to implode and both the Turtles and the Foot clan are after it. Donnie has just explained what it does and got a few blank faces as a reply.

Mikey: It does WHAT?
Raph: It makes things go "boom"
Donnie: Actually it makes things go "Sweeeh-chooo-pop!"
The others look at him in stunned silence.
Donnie: It's important to be accurate.

newfan 10-08-2018 12:50 AM

I'm not sure about funniest but I do remember liking Raph say:
"1987 called, it wants it's jumpsuit back"
and Casey asking Raph "Did you lay an egg down there" when Raph found Chompy.

Took mine. lol That, along with the looks on their faces prior to that line will always be a fave funny moment. :tlol:

The Great Saiyaman 10-08-2018 05:16 PM

Evil intentions alone are not enough to make a super villain, you'll have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk and poor Baxter Stockman never really got either of those right and always got himself in over his head. Although compared to his counterpart of the 2003 series, he got off extremely easy...

From "I think his name is Baxter Stockman" the Turtles have been grounded by Splinter for skating in the lair, disobeying his orders, the guys bust out to skate outside. When reaching THE perfect skate spot, Donatello spots Stockman.
Donnie: Who the heck is that guy?
Raph: I don't know, but he needs a beatdown!
Leo: Hold on, Raph. We don't know that he's gonna do anything wrong. He's probably on his way to... church?
Raph: Wearing powered battle armor? What kind of church is that?
Mikey: A really awesome one!
Leo: Ugh... look, it's my call! I decide who gets a beatdown!
[Baxter tries to break into a building]
Leo: That guy needs a beatdown.

Deciding that "Baxter Stockman" isn't a name that will strike fear into hearts of the common man Baxter tries his hand at getting himself a super villain name but the process turns out to be more difficult than he thought...
Baxter: I'm not Baxter Stockman, I am... THE BAXMAN! No, no, I am... THE SUITINATOR! ...AW, THAT'S TERRIBLE!... Captain... PUNCH-YOU... HARD. Why is this so difficult?
Mikey: I kinda liked the Suitinator.

newfan 10-09-2018 09:22 AM

I liked that episode, it had light humour content throughout with the turtles explaining to the Splinter why they were so battered up and later when Leo says to stockman:
"we don't want to hurt you" followed by "we don't? did I,..miss a meeting?" Though I'd not say it was the funniest line ever but I liked it.

As mentioned above it's not always just a line but the whole scene in some cases.

Yeah, humor-wise, that was bar none one of the funniest episodes.

Leo: Guys, we're ninjas, we move swiftly and this is the important part: silently!
But then he fails to see that he has reached the end of the roof he was running and plummets down with a loud scream. He then falls through the glass roof of a greenhouse where to his horror also hangs a...
Leo: BEEHIVE!
Still unable to to stop his forward momentum, Leo runs through the outer wall of the greenhouse, off of that roof onto a fire escape ladder and tumbles down several floors until finally coming to rest in a garbage pile. All of it with a lot of noise and happening in front of the others.
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20171116024602
Raph: That wasn't very silent Leo!

The next day during training Splinter is the first to notice that the boys have been up to no good. because their training regime isn't at all going well.
Master Splinter: YA ME!
The Turtles sit down to attention.
Master Splinter: Is there something you want to tell me?
Mikey: Something we WANT to tell you? No.
Master Splinter: You all seem tired for some reason.
Leo: We're not!
Raph: Wide awake!
Donnie: Fresh as daisies!
Mikey yawns loudly in response
Master Splinter: So you wouldn't object to a little RANDORI?
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20171129050004
*GULP!*
Splinter takes out his wooden sword and proceeds to smack the snot out of their shells.
Master Splinter: I hope you see turtles that the truth isn't the only thing that hurts!
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20171129050122

The turtles arrive back at the lair all bruised and battered, (Look closely at Raphael in this scene, he actually has one of his sais stuck in his back shell.)
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20180103033308
They try to sneak in but Splinter is there to welcome them with open arms...
Leo: Ah, Sensei!
Master Splinter: And where have you been?
Raph: Nowhere...
Master Splinter: How did you get so hurt?
Leo: Oh, that, uhm, we were, uhm...
Raph: Hit...
Donnie: By a...
Mikey: Bus?
Mikey grins at Splinter with his teeth falling out.
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20180103033533
Donnie: Hit by a bus!?
Mikey: Well, what was I supposed to say? Meteor? Cow? Flying building?!
They sneer at each other.

And of course...

Master Splinter: The first rule of being a ninja is do no harm. Unless you mean to do harm. Then do lots of harm!

newfan 10-09-2018 11:48 AM

I liked splinters expression when he was asking 'how did you get so hurt?' also.
Seen it a number of times but never noticed Raph's sai stuck in his shell before

He got lucky on that one, it could have killed him.

The Great Saiyaman 10-11-2018 08:00 AM

Being a big fan of Karai, I'll always consider episodes like "New girl in town", "City at war" and "Broken foot" among my favorites. The banter between her and Leo is just so funny, they act like they have been married for 20 years.

But there was more humor in those eps.

From "New girl" after taking over leadership of the Turtles, Raphael displays a more hands on approach than Leo.

Donnie: I'm working as fast as I can Raph.
Raph: Then work FASTER!
Donnie: Do you think yelling is going to help?
Raph: No I think HITTING is going to help.
Donnie: I'll work faster...

Raph takes the others on their first mission with him leading, the search for Snakeweed leads them into a far dirtier part of the NYC sewers.
Mikey: Man it really stinks in here!
Raph: It is a sewer Mikey!
Mikey: I mean more than usual, where does all of this stuff come from anyway?
Raph and Donnie exchange a look.
Donnie: Actually Mikey most of it comes from... (He whispers something into Mikey's ear.)
Mikey: WHAT?! DON'T PEOPLE KNOW WE'RE LIVING DOWN HERE?

After not getting any info about the mission from Raph, Leo sits watching TV, watching "Space heroes" where Captain Ryan is seen passionately making out with a blue skinned woman.
Celestia: We shouldn't be together Ryan, it is against your fleet's protocol.
Ryan: Well Celestia, you don't get to be captain of the Dauntless by following all the rules.
She whips out a gun.
Celestia: Good then you wouldn't mind giving me the codes!
Ryan: Celestia.. You've broken my heart!
He pushes a button and vaporises her.
Ryan: But my disintegrater ray still works!
With a sad look he picks up her boots.
Ryan: At least I have these to remember her by.
Leo: Boy relationships are complicated!

Here's a piece of trivia: Ryan mentions the name of the ship being "The Dauntless." Which means it's named after THIS.
http://warbirdsnews.com/wp-content/u...-2-678x381.jpg
The Douglas SBD Dauntless was a carrier operated Dive bomber which most famously flew off THIS carrier.

The USS Enterprise, which makes the circle round again concerning the Star Trek references.

newfan 10-11-2018 02:37 PM

Yeah that's on my fav ep list too.
I also liked Leo's lit up face and thumbs twiddling when he went to tell April about Karai.
Nice to see another Karai fan btw.

Yes I did, always interested to read material around her. I liked the idea of them crossing paths, with it starting out on a different tone I found myself was hoping 2012's would make it :)

So far as the show, there was another scene I found lightly funny but I can't remember the episode, it wasn't dialog though. Leo had asked Leatherhead for a lift up, likely thinking he'd jump from Leatherheads hand or something but Leatherhead just grabbed him and threw up upwards, Leo was looking startled as he was flung through the air.

That one’s definitely up there. Also “Sorry to burst your possessed bubble, Leo.” from Parasitica. Season 1 is way too good.

newhire13 10-18-2018 09:00 AM

Karai-"Booyakasha? What does that even mean?"

Mikey-"I don't know, but its fun to yell!"

The Great Saiyaman 10-18-2018 09:38 AM

There actually were a lot of adult jokes in the 2012 Nick series, The "We're not THAT kind of sub." being a prime example.

From "A foot too big" Raphael runs into Bigfoot as she exits the bathroom of the Northampton farmhouse where the Turtles decamp.
Bigfoot: Bigfoot made waste.
Raph: Made waste huh?
Raph peers inside, the toilet is absolutely pristine but then he spots the tub...
Raph does a double take and shuts the door in horror.

Raph: BIGFOOT!

Another blatant adult joke was in "Mikey gets Shellacne" that scene in the kitchen.


There's Raphael with fried eggs on his chest. Which is a reference to a porn term for a woman who's not very chesty.

And related to that.
Raph: You're really going to plug an advanced piece of military technology directly into Mikey's head, what if it melts his brain?
Donnie: It won't and even if it would, who'd know the difference?

newfan 10-27-2018 02:13 AM

Where Aprils dad was mutated and Leo was asked how he knew it was Kirby.
Leo: You see any red bearded, middle aged bats lately?

The Great Saiyaman 11-19-2018 06:00 PM

Having binged watched the first and second season recently, here's a few good ones.

From "Slash and Destroy"


After Donatello nearly blew up the lair and Raphael's pet Turtle Spike in the process, Raph decides enough is enough and takes the last vile of Mutagen from Donnie's lab for safe keeping until the "Mad professor gets his act together."

Raph is called over by Mikey to help out with the cleaning of the lab and he still is very cross with the situation. Luckily, Master Splinter has a sure way to calm Raph down again.


Splinter: Raphael, allow me to make a suggestion.
Raphael: Suggest WHAT Sensei? I'm tired of suggestions, what could you possibly suggest...
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20170131015253
(Splinter touches a pressure point on Raph's collar bone which paralyzes him and makes him fall over backwards.)
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20170629033245
Splinter: Perhaps you should sit down and meditate for a while.

Donnie gets all busted up during his encounter with Slash But however severe that beating was, it sure didn't beat the sarcasm out of him.

Donatello: Ugh… What hit me? It was like Raph, only… bigger and meaner… angrier, but… not quite as ugly.
Raphael: It was Spike! He got into the mutagen--
Donatello: Spike?
(Rolls his eyes and continues in a sarcastic tone)
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20170704025940
Donatello: Way to keep that mutagen safe, Raph.

During the Turtles' fight against Slash, Leo has been occupied with trying to get that rogue canister of Mutagen which thanks to a streak of Bad Luck seemingly always gets away from him. The apotheosis coming with a simply hilarious scene in which he had tea time with a little Girl who in the Nick Comics is named Chloe, who tries her hardest to teach Leo proper etiquette.
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20170706013526
Chloe: No, no, no, no, no. You have to hold your pinky out.
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20170706013554
(Leo looks at his hand, which no matter how you slice it, has only three fingers.)
Leonardo: I don't exactly have a pinky.
Chloe: Are there other talking turtles like you?
Leonardo: Nope. Just me. Mr. Imaginary turtle.
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20170706014107
(Raph and Slash fall through roof)
Leonardo: Raph?!
Raphael: Leo!? Having… tea time?!

newfan 11-20-2018 03:59 AM

I just thought they added that light humour with Leo to counteract the darker scenes in that ep with Donnie and Mikey being beaten.
LOL - not as ugly, Slash was ugly :)

Speaking of Leo with a tea cup, though not hilarious I thought it lightly amusing in Buried secrets when he was trying to cover up what had happened to Mr O'Neil and he's sipping his tea while looking awkward with his eyes.

The Great Saiyaman 11-26-2018 07:44 AM

From the episode "Turtle Temper", Michelangelo can't resist taunting Raphael but Raph suddenly and swiftly grabs him and puts him in a necklock.
https://i.pinimg.com/736x/a4/a6/2a/a...ja-turtles.jpg
Raphael: Say it.
Leonardo: Raph, be quiet!
Raphael: Not 'til Mikey says it!
Michelangelo: Raphael is all wise and powerful!
Raphael: (squeezes Mikey) Aaaand?
Michelangelo: And he's better than me in every possible way!
Raphael: (forces Mikey to the floor) Aaaaaand?
Michelangelo: And I'm a lonely worm beneath his feet who isn't fit to live on the same planet as him because he's so amazing and I'm a dirt clod!
Raphael: (licks his finger and hovers it over Mikey's head) AAAAAND?!
Michelangelo: (whimpers) And in the history of the universe there's never been…
Leonardo: Okay, Enough!

From the episode "the Alien agenda" In this scene we find Raphael and Leonardo sparring after the latter had been showing off to impress his love interest Karai. So far the only other members of the Hamato Clan who know about her are Raphael and April. Raph is urging Leo to come clean about her with the latter stating that they wouldn't understand.
https://cimg.tvgcdn.net/i/2013/01/18...8mag-tmnt1.jpg
Raphael: You really think Mikey and Donnie wouldn't understand? (Pauses, looks sideways, realizing what he just said.) You really think Donnie wouldn't understand?"

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/58/85...6780197aaa.jpg
Later in the episode, Karai has "formally introduced" herself to the other turtles before abandoning them during the battle, "leaving it up to the good guys" to defeat the Kraang. Needless to say Leonardo has a lot to explain.
Michelangelo: So...
Donatello: (to Leo) We're thinking somebody should start talking!
(Leo looks sad as the scene cuts to the lair)
Leo: I should have told you about Karai sooner, but I really thought there was a chance she would be good, and... I guess I... sort of... liked her. Go ahead, laugh.
Michelangelo: Dude, I can't believe you trusted her.
Donatello: I can't believe you didn't trust us enough to tell us.
Leo: I was wrong, I'm really sorry.
April: I tried to warn him.
Raphael: You too, huh?
Splinter: Leonardo, you are not the first young man or turtle to make a fool of yourself in front of a girl.
Michelangelo: What about Donnie? (Donnie hits him)
Splinter: However, when that girl is a Kunoichi working for the enemy, that is a completely different thing. Deception is the ninja's most powerful weapon. And Karai appears to be a master of it.
Leo: Thank you, Sensei. I'm glad you're not mad.
Splinter: Who says I'm not mad? (Whacks Leonardo's foot with his cane making Leonardo scream)

The Great Saiyaman 12-27-2018 06:12 PM

Here's another scene with Baxter Stockman.

After getting their hands on April O'Neil's cellphone, the Foot Clan and Baxter Stockman decide that the enemy of their enemy is their friend and that if they work together, their chances of actually defeating the Turtles become much greater. The turtles have split up into two teams; Leonardo and Raphael and Michelangelo and Donatello to separately try to get the phone back. In their effort to do so Mikey and Donnie were caught by Shredder's right hand man Chris Bradford, AKA Dogpound who chained them up while Baxter is busy trying to open the phone's codes using one of Dogpound's laptops. When Donatello says that their efforts are useless because the telephone has nothing useful on it Baxter reminds them that is does have a GPS tracker, which would reveal where the Turtles' secret lair is.

So far so good for the bad guys, the only issue being the fact that Dogpound's laptop apparently still has Windows 98 on it...

Hey, The Great Saiyaman. I get that you probably have a lot to say here but it isn't a good sign that nearly half the thread is made up of your own posts, it kind of comes across as you wanting to keep it going regardless of genuine interest.

Nah, I'm not the kind of guy who does that. It's simply because I keep recalling funny stuff here.

victory_angel 12-28-2018 01:20 PM

One funny isn't openly said, but it's still funny regardless. It's the scene in Trans-dimensional Turtles where both sets of Turtles arrive at the 2012 Lair. 2k12 Leo, Donnie, and Mikey all eagerly enter because this is the first time they've seen their home in months. But Raph stops and pantomimes to the 1987 series Turtles that they should stay put or he would beat them mercilessly.


They find the Anti-matter weapon that Krang planted and Donnie says they need to get it to his lab so he can defuse it. The Turtles then arrive at the lair, the 1987 Turtles start to join them but Raph stops through sign says:

"You fine gentlemen kindly wait here a moment, and please remain quiet or I will strike you repeatedly in the face and bodily regions."

Then 1987 Raph pouts about the fact they are being told they couldn't enter a different dimension version of their lair.


Then moments later when the Turtles encounter Splinter alive and well for the first time in months. They all run up and hug him and at first, Splinter is confused about this reaction, then he notices the 1987 Turtles have all come into the lair despite being told not to, much to the chagrin of the other Turtles.

The Turtles are gazing around in awe as they look upon their lair for the first time ever. Splinter then appears.

Splinter: Back so soon? You just left to patrol the city.

(Turtles run forward and all hug Splinter like a bunch of frightened children)

Splinter: (Confused) Is everything alright.

Leo: Definitely, Master Splinter. It's...It's just really amazing to see you.

(Splinter smiles but then notices a strange version of Leonardo standing with them. Leo looks beside him and winces at the sight of his 1987 self and worse yet the other 1987 turtles have entered the lair and are making themselves at home)

87 Mikey: Whoa Dudes, this lair is rockin! Check out that pinball, totally radical!

Raph: What did I tell you guys about waiting outside?!

Splinter: What is going on here! Someone explain! Now!

87 Leo: Wow, your Splinter is kinda strict and tall too!

(Splinter notices Donnie is attempting to sneak away towards the safety of his lab)

Splinter: DONATELLO!

Donnie: Yeah...they were transported here from an alternate dimension Sensei, along with this weapon we have to defuse ASAP. (Reaches to the side and grabs 87 Donatello and drags him along with him as he's talking.)

87 Mikey: Cowabunga!

(Skateboards around Splinter three times, Mikey grabs a skateboard and join him in skateboarding around the lair.)

Mikey: Booyakasha!

87 Raph: I call dibs on pinball!

Raph: Okay, don't we have a little anti-matter weapon to deal with here?!

87 Raph: (Off-screen) Ahh, the Donatello's will take care of it, lighten up a little man.
