Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
Hello, Beasts! (approved & first posted on Kommunity Fri, Nov 20 2015)
In doing a little "boopity-boop-boop-boop" research for a song project, and taking inspiration from GMM 800 where Rhett & Link were asked by Kommunity member, icesis (@icesisGMM on Twitter,) to say one quote from every episode (we knew what she meant, but of course, R&L took it the other way! lol), I started looking up popular quotes the guys have said from all their shows: The RhettandLinKast Live, Good Morning Chia Lincoln, The Mythical Show, Good Mythical Morning, Good Mythical More, Ear Biscuits and other videos in which they were guests/featured.
I searched various sites and discussion threads for quotes, and realized a lot of lists were really disorganized, not sourced, and some were incorrectly worded! The researcher and organizer in me (Master's degree) was agitated by this, so I decided to type up a mass list of quotes from each episode for the Kommunity!
This is working list. I encourage and welcome you to add to it and make suggestions if compelled.
Each episode can have more than one quote since the guys say a lot of funny and interesting things, so feel free to add to an episode already posted by commenting below.
*Note: I'm not linking videos to the quotes. You can easily find the videos by typing "GMM 305" (for example) into youtube or google search and the video comes up, except for Season 2, but you can use this source for the correct number. There are some mislabeled episodes in the description of the videos, & those are noted in this list.
*I have personally watched every episode or video that is listed and checked quotes for 100% accuracy. If I am incorrect in any way, please let me know!
6/13/16: This list is also here to help viewers find episodes based on quotes or specific moments. Of course, watch the episodes for yourselves and pick out your own favorite quotes as well. :)
*12/30/15: Here is a link to the post of Quotes from GMCL, TMS, Ear Biscuits & More!.
2/23/17: *Kasts will be included in a video guide! Coming soon! *6/13/17: Kast quotes will be included in GMCL, etc., list above until video guide is completed.

"..If you have a face you are making some sort of a face." "I do have older people come up to me in public places and say, 'Honey, can I help you with something?'"
“As a seedling is planted in the dirt and emerges when it feels the rays of the sun, slowly, with a default facial expression of sheer wonderment mixed with ‘I’m smelling something bad,’ the petals of the flower reach out to photosynthesize. It breathes in the universe, and as it breathes out, it’s as if the flower is saying, ‘Thank you for making us a part of your morning routine, whenever your mythical morning may happen.’ And then it dies. But you don’t die, you continue watching.”
R "Don't be a mouth breather." "Are you lost?" "Where are your parents at?"
GMM 28: L “It’s a halfway massage for a full-way price.” “She’s giving you the ‘Crouching Tiger’. I’m afraid to ask, what’s the ‘Hidden Dragon’?”
R “She’s standing on me as if I was a table.” “You can walk on somebody’s front.” “Do you now a hundred years ago, do you know what kids would have to do? They would have to make their own beds.

GMM 31: R “...They could have fit that in there. ‘Bed, Bath, Blender and Beyond.’” “Let’s be smoothie people, at least occasionally.” “Maybe the Bed, Bath and Beyond is a bureau of the government.” “You stole from me without telling me?”
L “You’re into anything that you’re not currently into.” “That’s what the ‘Beyond’ part comes into. It includes paranormal activity? It’s like Area 51 is really any part of the ‘Beyond’ section.” “I choke on purchases all the time...I feel like I need to take a nap. It paralyzes me.” “This coffee, worth every penny I didn’t pay for it.”

GMM 35: R “Or if you just lay around and do nothing, welcome to that week of doing nothing, doesn’t matter.” “I would consider myself a foodie, kinda, you know, like a foodie, jr.” “Would you like parmesan with that? Where’d you get your jacket at?” (story)
L “I can be a judge and a lawyer. Word up. I’m both!” “H&M, don’t worry about it. I got it covered.”

This is a good drug.” “The subtext of this story is that I was unqualified, okay.” “But it’s almost like ‘the man with the red pencil is here. Wow, he looks young.’” “HARD HAT!”
L “We want you to out-addict each other.” “Would you like to take a tour? Well, go out there and look around.”
GMM 38: R “And this is Pat, he’s our spiritual guide. He’s a great farmer and he would like to spend some time alone with your wife. That’s how cults work.” “...because there are no redos in ‘Good Mythical Morning’. It is what it is, you start the camera and you go!”

GMM 44: R “I told your kids that, as a child, I lived exclusively in the woods.” “If you’re going to impersonate me, get the facts straight.”
L “So it’s an opinion or a perspective that is unique and mythically beastly enough to generate conversation amongst all of us.” “As a youngster, I remember my vision being impaired from the little dust sharks, I thought they were.” “For every idea, you have to evaluate against the criteria of this: How easily could this idea be used for evil.” ”See you Monday.

GMM 45: L “It isn’t until you bring a two year old to Gyu Kaku that you realize that everything there is flammable!” “Or probably any restaurant.”
R “They allow questionable looking men to come in with children and surround and get around the fire.” “When the kids outnumber the parents, they shouldn’t be allowed at this restaurant.” “So what happens if you give yourself salmonella at a do-it-yourself restaurant?

GMM 48: L “Okay, it’s Hair Week.” “We apologize for being so into hair and especially our own hair.” “It’s kinda hard to hide that we’re pretty obsessive about our own hair and we’re ashamed of it.” We think there is value in this, but we do acknowledge before giving you the value, the ludicrousitosity of not only speaking so much about our hair but actually caring as much as we do about our hair.” “We are our own hair stylists.” “I joined the hair cutting club for men.” “I might as well be in an electric chair, I be so scared, I be shaking.” “Every two or three weeks, I cut my own hair...cause I never want you to notice what’s happening.” “It’s such a process, I have to inform my family.” “It takes me at least three hours to cut my hair.”

GMM 50: R “Did you hear about Mahoney? It’s a shame.” “Mahoney, he’s a family man. And why is his name always Mahoney? Did you hear about Mahoney? Huh, that’s a bunch of bologna.” “You should shoot a gun before you die, not at someone and don’t shoot a gun right before you die. It shouldn’t have anything to do with you dying, because I think it’s difficult to have an opinion about something that you haven’t experienced.”
L “Cause it rhymes with bologna.” “The beginnings of a great cop poem.” “Shooting guns, it doesn’t excite me. In matter of fact, it raises a lot of anxiety.” “He was the only one that brought his own gun... He was the only other guy who didn’t have a friend, me and Phil.

I realized that I got really happy.” “Shout-out to Harnett Central High School.” “Do you know why the keyboard is the way it is?”
R “That may be true, but if I, as a person, make people happier than you make people, then it’s just, it’s all mood. It all balances out.” “...We took typing class on typewriters!” “We would literally be given a typewriter, an electric typewriter, and a thing of white-out.” “It would be like ‘here’s your thing of white-out, make it last all semester.’” “It never crossed our minds that this wasn’t normal that we were on typewriters because we had never been on a computer before.” “I know, because the guy who invented it, his nickname in high school was ‘QWERTY.’ (singing->) ‘They call me QWERTY.’ That sound be a song!”
GMM 52: R “‘Cause there’s a guy out there with your journal. There’s a guy out there with your deepest and darkest thoughts! “We’re seeking replacements. I don’t know when this happened, but he’s been trying to eat my flesh for weeks. Please, call your local representatives or just comment on our Facebook page, I’m looking for a new partner, and I mean like a partner on YouTube.” “You need to go to zombie school before you become a zombie.”
GMM 53: R “If you’re in America, you know what the ‘Sweet 16’ is...If you’re outside of America, you may be, like, ‘what, is Link turning sixteen, and we’re celebrating it?’” “When I get really excited, I start doing the barrel hold here.” “‘Wolf McLaughlin,’ that’s good, like a superhero. ‘She Wolf McLaughlin’?” “...and I’m personally offended by Jar Jar Binks.” “I think that being a fan of something is a healthy thing and I realize that it can be taken way too far...if violence if involved. But I think that there’s a healthy thing in exercising some association with something and just don’t get too excited, don’t get too disappointed if they lose.”
L “Well, I have and it was pretty sweet.” “You wanna make sure that your chest doesn’t explode out of sheer joy for the Wolfpack.” “And if it does happen, if we do beat Kansas and go to the ‘Elite 8,’ I think you may have to name your next child after, like, name him ‘Wolf’ or her ‘Wolf.’ ‘Wolf’ or ‘She Wolf.’” “When they won, I realized that I had a glow about me that is as close as I will ever get to the glow that a pregnant woman has.”
GMM 54: L “I love ideas that are efficient, frugal, and tasty.” “They call me MCAquaFresh.”
R “We’ve called poison control, like, seven times between the two children.” “And we’re gonna close out with Luke Miller. He says, ‘My mythical perspective: they should genetically make pocket-sized dogs or cats.’ They’ve already done that. They’re called hamsters.” “‘Pocket Cat.’ That’ll be a meme.”
GMM 55: R “I actually have children. I put my hands on both of their hands at the same time to figure out which one has a fever. Did you learn that in psychology school? Huh? No, you didn’t! You learned that from me, the parent!” “There’s no psychologists who watch this show. Are ya crazy?”
L “You never tell anyone how to raise their kids.”
GMM 56: R "...he doesn't partake of the news. He's against the news. He's anti-news." “I’m gonna dive seven miles into a bowl of marinara sauce.” "They say it's like three SUVs sitting on your toe, which I have experienced back in my circus days." “I would go down to the discontinuity to prove once and for all that there is a species of humanoids there that we can converse with and we can develop a relationship with. All this effort to communicate with extraterrestrial life, I’m saying it’s intraterrestrial life.”

GMM 109: L “You know you’ve got a bad tattoo when you’re ashamed to show it to your cat.” “I think if you play a guitar, the coolest tattoo is to tattoo your fingers and your hand and your entire forearm so that when you play your guitar, when you hold the guitar and the way that your hand will be at rest, it blends in with your guitar.” “...so that then when you’re playing, your arm disappears.”

L “And I think that’s a record. Two goals with the off foot of a soccer player, who’s never- and you know what? And someone who, after that day, never scored a goal the rest of his career or life as a human being. That was it. Two goals in one game. Never a goal before and never a goal after.

GMM 122: R “You don’t want to be a furry. Trust me.”
GMM 123: L “You don’t have to watch this show. You don’t have to watch it everyday or whatever, but we’re glad that you do. We do this for you and for us. We do it for us. Mostly for us, but then some for you. If you like it, we’re doing it for you and us.” “High in starch is what we’re saying.”
R “You should though.” “Yeah, let’s be honest. We do it for all of us. It’s like a family. It’s like a commune.

R “There was no getting away from my dad. He was in control.” “Long story short, I bent over and I received maybe two very brisk reps of the belt.” “You, unlike me, you were never spanked, which explains a lot.

GMM 175: R “My dad used to call you ‘The Linkster.’”
R “It’s a 1992 Ford Bronco.” L “Now, I wasn’t entirely open to getting a new vehicle but once I saw the picture, I was like, ‘yes. This is awesome.’ I don’t care what condition it’s in. It’s two different colors of dookie brown. We bought it.”

GMM 176: L “There’s no bonding like bonding over snow cones.” “Number 3 is when you’re sitting on the toilet just so you can be on your phone.” “I’ve got 3 kids back th-, I turn around and look at ‘em and you know what they look like?

GMM 179: L “I shame many of you people who call it a ‘binky’. What is that? It’s shameful! It’s a pacifier or a ‘paci.’”
R “Link is the one who keeps things. Link is the one who kept this Gutless Wonders script, who probably, you do have that bunny somewhere at your house. I don’t keep anything, but for some reason, I still have Teddy, the teddy bear that I was given in 1977.”
GMM 180: R “I recall, not kidding, one day, I killed nine flies inside my house in like a ten minute span. Now, let me explain to you, killing flies is something that I take pride in. I don’t respect flies, I don’t believe in fly rights. If you believe in fly rights, sorry. You’re not gonna be my friend or at least, you can watch me kill a fly in your presence and hopefully be okay.” “I bought a flytrap. Something I never thought a McLaughlin would do because I consider myself THE flytrap...I’m the enforcer, I’m the punisher, I’m the fly punisher.”

R “Weep with us. Let’s weep together.” L “Boy, this is special.”
