The Colbert Report (October 17, 2005 - present) is an American comedy television program starring political humorist Stephen Colbert, formerly of The Daily Show. The show satirizes personality-driven political pundit programs, particularly Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor. It was created by Colbert, and Jon Stewart and Ben Karlin of The Daily Show.

It's what Lincoln would have watched. taglines.

Season 1 (2005)[edit]

Stephen Colbert: Open wide baby bird, 'cause momma's got a big fat night crawler of Truth. Here comes The Colbert Report!

Stephen: But this show is not about me. This program is dedicated to you, the heroes. And who are the heroes? The people who watch this show. Average, hardworking Americans. You're not the elites, you're not the country club crowd. I know for a fact that my country club would never let you in. But you get it. And you come from a long line of it-getters.

Stephen: On this show, your voice will be heard - in the form of my voice.

Stephen: Now I know some of you may not trust your gut...yet. But with my help you will. The "truthiness" is, anyone can read the news to you. I promise to feel the news... at you.

Stephen: Thankfully, alert gauchos were able to save the llama before it was swept into the blades of the turbine.

Stephen: I'm looking over your shoulder, but only because I've got your back.

Stephen: Put on the Sade and spritz on some musk! I'm going to truth you all night long! This is The Colbert Report!

Stephen: Apply Truth liberally to the inflamed area. This is The Colbert Report!

Season 2 (2006)[edit]

George Bush: Great president or the greatest president?

Stephen: Good news, America! Today you are completely safe and have nothing to fear. It's time for the SafetyUp! No, wait, today's opposite day. ThreatDown!
Stephen: (Talking about how Magna morphs and the magnetic parts that they feature. Colbert had attached the bear's head to the eagle's body) This allows you to combine our proud symbol of American freedom, with a godless killing machine!! Look at that! Half-bear, half-eagle, it's a beagle! And this is a grizzly, so it's a greagle. Kill it! Kill it! (Panically dismantles the "greagle").
Stephen: I've got 99 problems, but the truth ain't one. This is The Colbert Report!

Stephen: [using the Da Colbert Code] Say I wanted to know who killed President Kennedy: John Fitzgerald Kennedy...F. Scott Fitzgerald...The Great Gatsby...The Great Escape...Escape from New York...The Big Apple...Apples and Oranges...A Clockwork Orange...Stanley Kubrick...directed Barry Lyndon...Lyndon Johnson, oh my God! It was all a plot by Lyndon Johnson to attain the presidency so he could escalate the involvement in the Vietnam War! [whispers] Makes so much sense. Oh, if this code fell into the wrong hands.

Let's try a current mystery. Varying reports on the Hurricane Katrina debacle are pointing fingers in many directions. Who's really to blame for the slow response to the disaster? Let's think about it: Hurricane Katrina...Katrina and the Waves...Waves in the Oceans...Ocean's full of Fish...One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish...Dr. Seuss...The Cat in the Hat...Mike Myers. Oh my God, it's Mike Myers' fault! No wonder he kept quiet when Kanye West started blaming President Bush!

Okay, now let's use this for something important. Everyone wants to know who's gonna win the Oscars. Let's start with Best Supporting Actress: you get support from support groups like AA...AAA...XXX...X the Owl...Henrietta Pussycat...What's New Pussycat...Tom Jones...Star Jones...Star Wars...WarGames...Winter Games...Wintergreen...Winter Garden...beer garden...Weisse Beer...Rachel Weisz will win Best Supporting Actress! Oh, she is so lovely.

Stephen: [to guest Bill O'Reilly] I'm not a Secular Progressive, sir. I'm a deeply religious man who will do anything you say.

Stephen: Now, there's nothing wrong with being gay. Some of my best friends are going to hell.

Stephen: If our Founding Fathers wanted us to care about the rest of the world, they wouldn't have declared their independence from it.

Stephen: Ignorance is bliss. Oedipus ruined a great sex life by asking too many questions.

Stephen: Hey, you know, I love Korea. See? I'm having a… Bulgogi tonight! (Showing a bowl with mixture of several pieces of meat, lettuce and other vegetables) lovely. That is a…… not sure what's in there but I do know that you crack a roll egg over it. (Cracking egg to the bowl) And…… I…am… (holding a chopstick) going to… enjoy that…… a little bit later. (hides the bowl under the desk)

Stephen: It's George Washington's birthday and I cannot tell a lie [the former was false]. This is The Colbert Report!

Stephen: The safest way to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater is to not change the bathwater.

Stephen: You said, "Anyone who grew up on a farm knows that evolution exists." OK, are you saying a monkey can milk a cow?
Peter Agre: Well, if I can milk a cow I suspect a monkey as smart as I am can milk a cow.
Stephen: Are there monkeys as smart as you?
Agre: I'm sure there are quite a few, quite a few.
Stephen: Oh really? Do they give a Nobel Prize for throwing your own feces?"
Agre: That's the Economics prize, I think.

Stephen: Now, I’ve never been a fan of amphibians. Not only do they strengthen the argument for evolution, they are nature’s fence sitters. Come on, amphibians. Which is it? Water or land? Pick one, we’re at war.

Stephen: Folks, the President needs a break. He's like a Black and Decker cordless Dirt Devil vacuum. If you don’t recharge his batteries, he can't suck.

Stephen: I've said it a million times: Romance languages lead to premarital sex.
The Wørd: Chicks Dig Accents.

Following the Democratic victory in the 2006 Midterm Elections.
Stephen: The people have spoken - and apparently they're tired of freedom. Don't get me wrong, I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed. I thought this country would last longer than 230 years. That's it, folks, America is over. At this point, we might as well just give it back to the goddamn Indians. Let's see how they'd deal with foreign enemies bent on their destruction. Here's your cake, terrorists! There you go. Enjoy. [tasting the icing] Mmm, tastes like surrender. Jimmy, you might as well get those subtitles going. [Arabic subtitles appear at the bottom of the screen] There you go. Get used to these. And you know what? We should probably throw a burqa over Meg while we're at it. [Meg the intern is shown wearing a burqa] You know what really gets me here, you know what really gets me? Democrats didn't even win this thing, the Republicans lost it. They ran away from the president. "Hey, the ship's in trouble, quick, let's drown the captain!" We were this close to Jesus coming back. And you Republicans that turned your back on the president are going to wander in the desert for the next two years. Literally, someone's going to have to replace those troops in Iraq! And don't think you're off the hook, voters, you're the ones who made this bed. Now you're the ones who are going to have to move over so a gay couple can sleep in it. Tomorrow you're all going to wake up in a brave new world, a world where the Constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones, created in a stem-cell research lab run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags. Where tax-and-spend Democrats take all your hard-earned money and use it to buy electric cars for National Public Radio, and teach evolution to illegal immigrants. Oh, and everybody's high! You know what, I've had it! You people don't deserve a Republican majority! Screw this! I quit!

Stephen: [getting into his car] Take me home, Sam.
The driver turns around. It's Uncle Sam.
Sam: You are home, Stephen. The Colbert Nation is your home - and it needs you now, more than ever.
Stephen: No it doesn't.
Sam: Yes it does! The Democrats have only been in power for a few minutes and already they've already got us stuck in this unwinnable war!
Stephen: [with realization dawning] Yeah, they really screwed the pooch on that one. That Democratic majority has had a free ride for too long! Thanks, Sam! [moves to get out of the car]
Sam: You're welcome.
Stephen: [turning] Oh, by the way, there was no sparkling water in my drink caddy. You forget that again and I will fire your fat ass. You got me, old man?
Sam: Yes.
Stephen: Yes, what?
Sam: Yes, sir.

Stephen: Look, do you believe there's a God?
Bart Ehrman: I'm not sure.
Stephen: Really?
Bart: Yeah.
Stephen: So you're an agnostic?
Bart: That's right.
Stephen: Isn't that just an atheist without balls?

Season 3 (2007)[edit]

Stephen: Reality has become a commodity.

Stephen: I'm attacking America's enemies like a spurned astronaut.
Stephen: We went to Iraq for one reason.
The Wørd: WMDs?
Stephen: No.
The Wørd: 9/11?
Stephen: No.
The Wørd: Someone Tried To Kill The President's Daddy?
Stephen: Kind of.

Stephen: [Hillary Clinton] said one of her favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz. Well, I re-watched it recently, and I can't believe I never noticed the liberal subtext before. Judy Garland--gay icon--stars as Dorothy, an innocent girl from the Heartland, who gets swept away to a drug-induced fantasy land where's she's greeted by labor activists from the local guild. After she murders a powerful Oz official, she becomes a fugitive, hitting the road with a racially diverse group including a laborer, an animal-rights activist, and a treehugger. Who are all, for some mysterious reason, great dancers. And along the way, they get so high on poppies they think they're being attacked by flying monkeys. Folks, there's a short walk from "There's no place like home" to "It Takes a Village."

Stephen: I've always been a big fan of beauty. Sure, you can't judge a book by its cover but who wants to have sex with a book?

Stephen: [Upon learning that Willie Nelson has a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor.] Willie Nelson has a flavor? What's in it, shredded tax forms and hash?

Stephen: Join me next time on Colbert Platinum when I'll be joined by Master Chef Reginald Durham for a luxury cookout with the elite burger "Panda Patties". Mmmm. Yes, you can taste the rarity.

Representative John Yarmuth accepts Stephen's challenge to face him in an impromptu debate.
Stephen: Tonight’s subject: Throwing kittens in a woodchipper. I'm against it, I think it's wrong. John, tear me a new one.
Yarmuth: Well, you know, there are times when you have to find a way to dispose of kittens. And sometimes the only thing that you can do, if you don't have a shovel, if you don't have a garbage can, if there's a woodchipper handy, then you're going to have to use the woodchipper.

Stephen: Take it from me, there's nothing like a job well done, except the quiet enveloping darkness at the bottom of a bottle of Jim Beam after a job done any way at all.

Stephen: If you non-Catholic Christians are upset, well, just have your Pope issue a reponse. Oh, that's right, you don't have a Pope because your faith is defective. Sorry, Catholicism is clearly superior. Don't believe me? Name one Protestant denomination that could afford a $660 million sexual abuse settlement. I think that Lord has spoken on this one.

Stephen: [In response to Bill O'Reilly's comparison of Daily Kos with the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazi party.] Exactly! The Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis were both notorious for allowing people to express unpopular views in an open and free forum.

Stephen: Now, tragically, folks, we are illuminating more and more of the Dark Side every day. Now that indefinite detention, enhanced interrogation, and domestic spying are acceptable, it is getting harder and harder to find those things that we as Americans theoretically cannot bring ourselves to do.
The Wørd: Vote?

Stephen: Now, I don't see color. People tell me I'm white and I believe them because police officers call me "sir".

Stephen: Love is a full-length mirror.

Stephen: I actually do think that Wikipedia is an amazing thing. It is the first place I go when I’m looking for knowledge, or when I want to create some.

Stephen: You see, the Vice President knew that we cannot win this war if we go by the book.
The Wørd: Or The Constitution.
Stephen: You... you do whatever it takes. You go beyond what's legal. You go past what's acceptable.
The Wørd: You Shoot A Man In The Face.

Stephen: We need to return to the clarity of the good old days. Before there was any difference between Sunnis and Shi'ites.
The Wørd: 632 A.D.
Stephen: Back when there were freedom fries, and our justification for war was three simple letters: W...M...D
The Wørd: L...I...E



Stephen: Which brings me to threat number one: gravity. It is not enough--it is not enough that everyone in the mainstream media is against this President. Now even the laws of physics are jumping on the anti-Bush bandwagon? 'Course, I've known about gravity's liberal bias ever since my tenth grade science teacher, Mr. Stamp, dropped a bowling ball and a feather in a vacuum. Bowling ball should definitely have won. There's only one way that feather could keep up: affirmative action. Point is, we've lost gravity to the liberals, folks; but inertia, I hope you're listening! You of all principles of physics should know to stay the course.

Stephen: Every time the President comes up with a new secret tactic to take down al Qaeda, the media blows its cover. Torture, monitoring our phone calls, monitoring our emails, secret prisons, all perfectly reasonable temporary concessions of freedom that will only be in effect as long as our never-ending war on terror.

Stephen: When I decided to run for president, I did not do it for the attention. I did it to fulfill a dream, of being the most popular man in the world.

Season 4 (2008)[edit]

Using The DaColbert Code to predict the next President
Stephen: The next President will live in the White House...white guy...Guy Smiley...smiley face...horse face...horseshoe...shoe box...Johann Sebastian Bach...Baroque music...Baroque Obama, NO!

Stephen: [on his teleprompter being blank, thanks to the WGA strike] Jim, what the hell is going on? Where are my words?
Jimmy: We have no script, Stephen.
Stephen: Why not?
Jimmy: The writers are on strike.
Stephen: Yeah, I know that, Jim, I'm not a complete idiot. How does that affect me?
Jimmy: We have nothing to put in the prompter.
Stephen: That's not my understanding of how this works, Jim. My understanding is that this little, this little, uh, magic box right here, it reads my thoughts and then it lays them up on the screen right there in little words that I read and--that my audience can hear my--it's a labor saving device, Jim, that's--that's how I understand this works.
Jimmy: Well, no, actually it's what the writers put in.
Stephen: The writers. The guys on the fourth floor with the opium bongs playing Guitar Hero all day. You're telling me that those guys are responsible for what I say? I find that a bit of a stretch, Jim, I'm sorry. Get it fixed, and get it fixed now.

Stephen: [on being shown Abraham Lincoln's hat] Forget about the Secret Service, where was the fashion police?
Stephen: I tell you what: you ever see me wearing a hat like that, shoot me.

Stephen: [on Abraham Lincoln's projected IQ] So it is possible that he actually shot himself in the head, while he was trying to comb his hair with a gun.

Philip Zimbardo: Obviously you paid attention in Sunday school.
Stephen: I teach Sunday School, motherfucker!

Stephen: Hey, alternating current, why don't you just admit you're bi?

Stephen: Now it seems the crooks charge twenty to thirty thousand dollars for a fake Ferrari body attached to an old Pontiac chassis, and here's how you sniff out a fake: take a pocketknife and scrape off some of the paint on the hood just behind the ornament. If it's a real Ferrari... someone will kick your ass.

Stephen: It's no secret, folks. It's all over the news. We are living in some hard times. The economy is in the crapper, bin Laden is still at large, and Steve Gutenberg is on Dancing with the Stars. I wonder what star he's dancing with? Now I think, in fact, there wouldn't be any good news out there if it weren't for... Nazi gold.

Unidentified season[edit]

Stephen: "[to members of the US Bobsled team]" Bobsledding...Gay sport, or the gayest sport? ...I'm just saying, that Ice-dancers point at you guys and go "That's little over the top".

Stephen: [on capital punishment] I'm disappointed that my own Catholic Church has decided that capital punishment is wrong. Which is pretty hypocritical if you think about it, because they wouldn't even have a religion if it wasn't for capital punishment.

Stephen: The pen is mightier than the sword, if you shoot that pen out of a gun!

Stephen: Where does Congress get off saying that people have a right to Habeas Corpus? It's like they're holding these truths to be self-evident!

Stephen: We can't let the terrorists know that we have Abraham Lincoln frozen underneath the Library of Congress, and we'll unfreeze him as soon as we find a cure for shot in head.
[Audience boos]
Stephen: Too soon?

Stephen: Asia: Four little letters, four billion little people.

Stephen: Keep those letters coming, folks. An unpaid intern skims each one.

Stephen: I believe all God's creatures have a soul... except bears--bears are godless killing machines!

Stephen: Bears pounced on one of our nation's biggest corporations like happy Germans on Poland.

In reference to Dan Rather's "Courage" signoff in 1986 and later on his last program in 2005:
Stephen: Until then, America: courage. No, that sounds weak. How about: have some balls.

Stephen: Foreign newspapers: if they've got nothing to hide, how come they don't print them in English?

Stephen: Until next time, sleep tight, America, in the knowledge that I'll be sleeping, too. Protecting you from the wolf-headed creature which haunts your dreams.

Stephen: There's nothing wrong with being gay. I have plenty of friends that are going to hell.

Stephen: So you're the Fashion Editor at the Washington Post. Isn't that like being the Dance Critic at the Southern Baptist Convention?

Stephen: [On Condoleezza Rice] Yeah, I agree, she is sexy in sort of an ice-cold preying mantis sort-of-way.

Stephen: Help control the pet population: Teach your dog abstinence.

Stephen: [weeping] We were the Steel Magnolia Ya-Ya Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!

Stephen: Remember, Jesus would rather constantly shame gays than let orphans have a family.

Stephen: Giving a fly glasses is like giving a bear nunchucks.

Stephen: [On not winning the 2006 Pulitzer Prize] Come on, that's easy! That's like winning an Oscar for playing a retarded guy. It's a gimme! So from now on, let's just say that Stephen Colbert is not me, he's a character, and he's retarded but he doesn't know it.

Stephen: I know that the pope's infallible, but that doesn't mean he can't make mistakes.

Stephen: I talked to Bay Buchanan, founder of the Political Action Committee, to get immigrants out of America. Sounds like a hard job. We should find some immigrants to do that.

Stephen: You know, the World Cup is still going on and I thought that if I ignored it long enough, it would just go away... Like my emotions. (from 2006)

Stephen: Remember: Mentioning Jesus in your speech: Small government. Doing what Jesus asked: Big government.

Stephen: I've said it before: equations are the devil's sentences. The worst one is that quadratic equation, an infernal salad of numbers, letters, and symbols.

Stephen: Atheism: the religion devoted to the worship of one's own smug sense of superiority.

Stephen: [On speculation that JK Rowling will kill off Harry Potter in the seventh book.] Wise move. He's a wizard; he should have been stoned a long time ago. Leviticus, read it!"

Stephen: And of course I don't go anywhere without my pet goldfish, Anthrax. I always tell security I'm carrying Anthrax. Yeah, sure I get a lot of guff about it, but it's a family name; I'm not changing it.

Stephen: [On Joe Lieberman.] He's running as an independent Democrat which, if I'm not mistaken, is the political equivalent of a Labradoodle.

Stephen: In order to keep ourselves safe, we must first take the safety off.

Stephen: We have barely recovered from the original Y2K. If you don't remember, seven years ago at the stroke of midnight, planes fell from the sky, the banking system collapsed and power grids caught fire from coast to coast. Or so I assume. I was locked in my underground shelter cleaning my zombie rifle.

Stephen: Jesus forgives sinners, not criminals.

Stephen: Need I remind you that if the Democrats take control of Congress, Democrats will be in control of Congress!

Stephen: America is in the middle of a coast-to-coast heat wave. Good thing for you, I'm America's biggest fan.

Stephen: Both of our wands contain the same piece of phoenix feather.

Stephen: Washington is dangerously positioned between two Canadas, Canada Canada and California's Canada, Oregon.

Stephen: You see, we're America the Beautiful, not America 'Well, At Least She Has a Great Personality'.

Stephen: I'm not a fan of facts. You see, the facts can change, but my opinion will never change, no matter what are the facts.

Stephen: Changing 'French fries' to 'Freedom fries' was arguably this Republican Congress's greatest accomplishment.

Stephen: Democrats lead in all the polls by at least ten points, except one... Fox News. That is within a margin of error of plus-or-minus the facts.

Stephen: You're either gay or you fight it.

Stephen: Am I right? [applause] Evidently I'm right.

Stephen: People say justice is blind. I say find out who blinded her and burn them alive.

Stephen: No use crying over spilled milk. By this time tomorrow, it will become free yogurt.

(In response to the controversial Mitt Romney video, in which he insults 47% of the population at a $50,000-a-plate banquet)

Stephen: Thank you. Finally, a candidate who has the courage to say that half of Americans are mindless moochers that believe they are entitled to food. What do they think, that food grows on tress? No! We job-creators know that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Lunch is $50,000 a plate!

Stephen: The Romney Campaign is only on its third reboot. We've seen Business Man Romney, Foreign Policy Romney and Latino Romney, but we have yet to see...Aqua-Romney! He uses his powers to tell 47% of the fish that they are just lamprey.

Rush Limbaugh: (on video) We're only supposed to have one president, and we don't have one unless Mitt Romney stands up...and that's the sad reality.
Stephen: Yes. As far as Rush and I are concerned, Mitt is our president...and that's the sad reality. And if President Romney does not defend America now, he will not deserve to have been elected two months later.

(After introducing his new book, America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't)

Stephen: Mitt, the first copy is yours. The second copy is mine. I cannot wait to read this. Now, time for me to engrave this bad boy. "Dear Mitt, use this to become president. Just make me ambassador to Middle Earth."

Stephen: Speaking of losing, Mitt Romney.

(Stephen is explaining how to harass those who do not have photo ID on Election Day)
Stephen: Now, according to the ruling, officials can still ask for photo ID. They just can't prevent anyone from voting if they don't have it. This could still work. We can't keep people from voting, but we still have the consolation prize of harrassing them for no reason, and I think that with the right techniques, we can make the wrong kind of voters so uncomfortable that they'll just turn around and go home. I say we start with a cavity search. "You're free to vote. You just have to let us pull open those curtains and take a yank at that lever." Next, we critique their wardrobe.(shows poorly dressed man) (With a lisp) "You're gonna wear that?! To vote? What is that, a sweater? I can't stop you from voting, but I should stop you from dressing. No, really, go ahead and vote. I'm sure it will make (gesturing to photo) all this better." And then, to escort you to the booth, we will have...your ex-girlfriend. She'll be so relieved to see you out of the house, because, you know, she and Brad were so worried about you. By the way, that's Brad. (Shows attractive young man) You may recognize him from all those cologne commercials, but he only does that to pay for his penis reduction therapy. It's a slow progress, but she's being patient for his sake. Then, you're free to make your voice heard, and on your way out, we'll slap a sticker on you that says, "I farted."

(In response to Irish scientists working on alcoholic fuel)

Stephen: Which brings me to Alert #2: Drunk cars. So, let me get this straight. I'm not allowed to text and drive, but my car can get hammered.

(In response to Mitt Romney's 28.6% favorability)

Stephen: He is on a straight ride to plausible!

(After Barack Obama's presidential address)

Barack Obama: We believe that when an motor company pays its workers enough to buy one of their products, they are a success.
Stephen: Oh sure, and while we're at it, why not pay every employee at Boeing enough to buy their own 747? And why not pay everyone at Mcdonald's enough to buy one hamburger? You're living in a fantasy world!

Stephen: Now folks, it is that time of year when skeletal figures draped in black fill your mind with fear because the Supreme Court is in session.

(In reference to the court case Fisher v. University of Texas after learning the young woman was forced to attend LSU)
Stephen: Now folks, there is no greater injustice than having to attend your safety school. I myself was crushed when I had to go to Dartmouth instead of my first choice, Hogwarts. I mean, they never even responded to my application owl, probably because he was white.

(On the FEC ruling that employers can force employees to vote for a certain candidate)
Stephen: It's just like every other employee duty like, "Leave that report on my desk" or "change the printer paper" or "Go to Ohio and stand behind Romney while being black."
(After packaging Jay the Intern and forcing him to go to Ohio and knock on doors for Romney)
Stephen: Thank you for doing this, Jay, and thank you, FEC, or whoever employs the FEC and forced them to vote that way.

( On Paul Ryan performing volunteer work at a soup kitchen)
Stephen: Now folks, evidently Ryan and his team barged in and Ryan then spent 10 minutes washing pans "that did not appear to be dirty." Now, I know that may sound pointless, but come on, he's running for vice-president.

(On the agreed term of "razor-tight" to describe the election)
Stephen: That's right, folks. This election has no room for margin of error or correct use of metaphors. It's banana-up-for-grabs!
