Best and Worst Title Quotes of TAR
« on: September 20, 2014, 12:28:41 AM »
Reading about posts about that recent title quotes were boring, uninteresting or lame, I had idea to make this thread!
Best Title Quotes: Early TAR Quotes in TAR 2-19
Worst: TAR 20-present.

I think the last decent title quotes came from TAR 20 ("You Know I'm Not as Smart as You," "Bust Me Right in the Head with It," "I Didn't Make Her Cry," "Let Them Drink Their Haterade," "I Need Hair to Be Pretty")

TAR 24 had so many missed opportunities. Leg 2's title was "Baby Bear's Soup" ??? That had nothing to do with the episode... they could have picked "I Lost the Raft!" or "I Don't Think Their Raft Will Work" anything but "Baby Bear's Soup"!

TAR25 is continuing the trend of awful title quotes. "Go Big or Go Home"... it's not as terrible as last season's "Back in the Saddle" by the obvious cowboys, but it's still very generic. What's so difficult about watching a finished episode and finding an eye-catching quote? :groan:

I went through the list of episode quote titles, and here are my favorites: :<3

02.02 - Help Me, I'm American!
02.05 - Welcome To The World of Being Human
02.11 - Follow That Plane

03.02 - This Seems Like The Path Straight to Hell
03.08 - This Is More Important Than Your Pants Falling Down

04.10 - That's Me. That's My Face. Just Hit My Face. Hit My Face!

05.08 - I'm Going to Jail
05.11 - It's Okay, Run Them Over!
05.12 - You've Just Made Me a Millionaire

06.08 - One of You, I'm Gonna Break in Half
06.12 - You Deal With This Before I Hyperventilate

07.02 - The Whole Country Hates Me
07.05 - I've Been Wanting a Face-lift For a Long Time
07.09 - We Have a Bad Elephant

08.05 - We're Getting Out of the Country, Girls
08.06 - I'm Sick of Doing Stuff I Can't Do
08.07 - You Look Ridiculous

09.08 - Here Comes the Bedouin

10.10 - Lookin' Like a Blue-Haired Lady on a Sunday Drive
10.11 - We Just Won't Die, Like Roaches
10.13 - Say Your Deepest Prayers Ever!

11.06 - We're Going to Trade You For Food Now
11.10 - Good Doing Business With You

12.03 - Please, Lord, Give Me Milk
12.05 - We Really Burned Bridges, For Sure
12.07 - This is Forever, Now

13.06 - Please Hold While I Singe My Skull

14.02 - Your Target is Your Partner's Face
14.09 - Our Parents Will Cry Themselves to Death
14.12 - This is How You Lose a Million Dollars

15.01 - They Thought Godzilla Was Walking Down the Street
15.06 - This Is Not My Finest Hour
15.10 - It Starts With an 'F', That's All I'm Saying

16.04 - We Are No Longer in the Bible Belt
16.09 - Dumb Did Us In

17.03 - In Phil We Trust
17.05 - Tastes Like a Million Dollars
17.12 - Hi. I'm Sorry. I'm in a Race

18.04 - This is the Most Stupid Day Ever
18.09 - We're Good American People

20.05 - Uglier Than a Mud Rail Fence
20.09 - Bollywood Travolta

21.08 - We Was Robbed

23.09 - Part Like the Red Sea

24.10 - Bull Down

The earlier episode titles were more plot relevant or just comes from funny moments. The current quotes are leaning more on vaguely competitive quotes. They are also a lot shorter at just around 3-4 words so it doesn't really resonates or make a mark (which partly leads to the 'vaguely competitive' thing). Aside from the current trend of episode titles, I also didn't like season 4's line up of whole sentences...

Season 4's were too long. In general, 21-24 are too short.

here's the worst quote for TAR 25, IMHO.  The title quote of episode 2 and it looks like it came from a soundtrack of Frozen.  :funny:

"You Deal With This Before I Hyperventilate" and "It Starts With an 'F', That's All I'm Saying" will always be my favorite. :lol:

Oh, and plus "I hate you with a PASSION!" *row boat* & "DON"T compare me with the other girls!" *walk away* <333 but that's not title quote. :lol:

Any quote that contains spoiler is a bad quote. :cmas12 They should've looked for a 2nd-best quote.

"We Got a Chance, Baby!" is one of the worst for me. When I watched the episode (twice), I didn't even hear the word 'baby' being said. ???

Tara & Wil had good quotes in season 2, maybe two of the most iconic quotes in TAR:
"I'm Not a Miner! No, You're An Idiot!" and "Follow That Plane!"

An how on earth didn't Colins quote in season 5 "My Ox Is Broken!" (which LOL  :cmaslol) become an episode quote?

The worst is any quote out of Justin's mouth.
"But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice (oh)"

TAR29 Leg 6's "Double U-turn ahead!" was pretty lame.

Recent good title quotes :
27 Leg 11 : "It's Not Easy Beating Green"
28 Leg 12 : "The Only First That Matters"
29 Leg 9 : "I Thought We Were Playing It Nice"
30 Leg 9 & 10 : "The First Rule of Amazing Race Club"

It is sad that 31 fails to give any good title quote.
The best to me is 'I took out a polar bear.' or 'Who wants a Rolex?'. But it somehow lacks the dramatic effect of the above mentioned ones.

The earlier season's title quote's were better, because they were said by the racers.

In the later seasons, we see quotes being taken out of clues and by producer naming!
