--the "Over 9000" meme for another db-related catchphrase, what would it be?

I ask this because while reading the local newspaper funnies today, I saw the 9000 meme in the first panel of Dilbert: http://www.dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-12-01/ and I was like 'is this meme really THAT popular?'.


With Brian Drummond's Vegeta, I've always kind of liked his "wrath" line much better than this.

Definitely, "Cat loves food. Yeah, yeah, yeah!".

"This three-eyed cowboy's going out for one last ride!"

or

"Don't piss off the God of Love!"

or

"A man... wearing pink! How bizarre!"

He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

This, a million times time.

And, I'll even tell you why.

Now, I don't actually mind "Over 9,000." I don't go on /b/ or whatever the hell people go to, it's not overexposed to me. I don't go to conventions where it's all people can say in regards to Dragon Ball. So it doesn't bother me and maybe twice a year I'll even pull out that youtube video that started it all and have myself a wee chuckle.

But "Over 9,000" is something that got over simply due to repetition and is, really, just a slightly overfed line in a dub full of them (Chuquita's mentioning of the "WRRAAAAAATHHH!!!" line is a perfect example of this).

Meanwhile "Cat loves food" is a colossal failure on every level. It's a failure for the script writers and the voice actor. It perfectly encapsulates what some would see as the dub's attempt to piss on the original script. It tries to tinker with the context of the scene. The words don't mesh with what's happening visually.

Oh, and the line is bloody insane in the first place.

It's not like "Cat loves food" was the first time they replaced a line with singing. Back in the first Season 1 dub, during the dinosaur episode, Gohan was returning with food and his lines while he was walking along were changed to him going, "Doot, doooo-doot, doooo-doot, dooo-doot, dooo-DOOT, dooo-doot," or something of that nature.

Does anyone have a clip of the "Cat loves Food" thing? I can't believe I've never even seen this yet. Is it on the new season sets?

Piccolo's "I-feel-great-I-can-do-this-I-can-win-oh-yeah-!!" from just after he fuses with Nail. I think it was the first time that I literally cringed at the dub.

Even when I was a little kid, and first heard that line, even I was like "Ok... that couldn't have been right." :lol:

So how did that scene play out in the Japanese version? Not that I think it could be anything like that, but the contrast will make Cat Loves Food even more absurdly-fucking-tarded.

"It sure is nice to be at peace."

They then talk about how Vegeta is probably off in space chasing after Goku.

In the dub, this is replaced with some long backstory about "Cat loves food." It's a cat food commercial jingle. Pu'reh doesn't like, but shows no reaction to it either way.

I think that Dilbert line was just an odd coincidence.
An interviewer asks, "The soundtrack in Sonic 3 has become legendary. Is it true that you worked with Michael Jackson on it?" Takashi Iizuka kills all of our hopes and dreams by replying, "You know, those are just rumors, and SEGA does not want to say anything about them. So they will forever be just rumors..." WHY!?

One million times this. It never fails to make me laugh like a madman.

I'd use King Piccolo's line, "N-NO! NOT THAT! NOT THE JAAAAAAR!!!"

I don't know what it is about that, but for some reason, it ALWAYS cracks me up. It just never gets old to me.
