Sometimes it's the situation or simply something another player has said.

[NPC] Hospital Staff: You got royally spanked, didn't you?

This was circa i7, but I saw an Arachnos Webmaster, in Grandville, in front of a few troops say something along the lines of Remember, when you pull the pin, Mr Grenade is no longer your friend!

 

Never seen it since, never been able to find any references to it. Perhaps I'm just crazy? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That was the exact second when I realised why people often say redside missions have better writing. There's a sort of audacious silliness to a lot of redside content that I really enjoy. Early blueside story arcs often felt like filler, while early redside missions played like Saturday morning cartoons.

One that made me chuckle was a Hellion to the lady he was mugging, "that dress makes you look big..." like wow...I get mugging her man but, jesus, leave the ladies fashion choice alone, you really ARE villains.

"I like pie."
Random civilian that I clicked on in the street.

 

Just this morning/last night, from a mission of Vargas':

2020-02-17 01:06:51 [NPC] Nebula Cor Leonis Assault: I know this stuff is the key to our power and all, but I still say it just tastes weird. 
2020-02-17 01:06:51 [NPC] Vortex Elite Assault: What do you expect it to taste like? Strawberries? 
2020-02-17 01:06:52 [NPC] Nebula Cor Leonis Assault: Actually, that would be kinda nice.
2020-02-17 01:06:52 [NPC] Vortex Elite Assault: Are you serious? Strawberry flavored super-soldier serum? 

2020-02-17 01:06:52 You activated the Nemesis Staff power.

2020-02-17 01:06:53 [NPC] Nebula Cor Leonis Assault: Well, at least this will end that conversation.

Doc Buzzsaw:

  earlier: " each piece you find will get a second chance at life in my next project: The crystal powered SuperFreak! "

  later: " Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaught [sic] of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong "

 

Also the Freak Tank dialogue in her "rescue 3 Freak Tanks" mission is awesome.

Nemesis has already been mentioned, so the runner-up has to be everything out of the Radio's ( or more accurately RADIOOOOO'S) mouth.  Er, speaker.  Er, villain's auditory hallucination. 

 

While Television has less ambiguity, Radio Free Opportunity easily plays as a concept, a pirate DJ, or the villain hearing voices telling them to blow up Wyvern bases, and Radio is, and has been, my absolute favorite under-20 contact for sheer charm ever since City of Villains launched.

My all-time favorite, from a random Skull in The Hollows:

 

"No, I didn't call you stupid. I said your comment was an oxymoron. It's a rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are put together. Am I the only one who reads the books we swipe around here?"

One of my friends made an undead magician whose head got lopped off in her backstory, and is leaking spirits everywhere. And this phrase kicked both of us in the shins.

Headman Swordsman: I just don't get that 'stealing candy from a baby' thing. It'd be all gummy and gross. Who would want that anyway?

 

Headman Rifleman: I said catalyst of change, not cataclysm.

 

Penumbra Elite Adjutant: Eye strain and carpal tunnel. I love being the lookout guy.

 

And, of course, most of the TVTropes page for CoH humor.

I always liked Positron's answer to why he just stood there never helping heroes taking beating in front of him.

I know they get run to death but I love the DFB dialog. Positron does air on the side of being generic/ boring but I feel running it once blue before red really makes you appreciate all of Arbiter Sand's dialog on the red DFB. (As a side note, I love that Paragonwiki has the dialogue for a lotta of stuff)

 

Positron's assistance
There are reports of psychic disturbances below. No doubt it's the Lost. Be extra careful, many heroes have gone after the Lost only to never be heard from again.
Arbiter Sands' assistance
This report says the Lost have some sort of shanty town down below. Although, the operative spelled 'shanty' wrong. Sigh... do you see how hard it is trying to be an Arbiter when someone can't even spell shanty?

Some Tsoo in one of Darrin Wade's missions, redside:

 

Dragon Blue Ink Man: This is so beneath us.

Tiger Blue Ink Man: Seriously, we are the Hellions.

 

(Ooo, and there's a typo for me to report - the second line actually says "... were are the Hellions")
