On the surface, the middle-school nerds of Stranger Things and the fame-obsessed siblings of Keeping Up With the Kardashians don't seem to have much in common. But on a deeper level... well, they still don't have that much in common. Stranger Things and the Kardashians are more a study in contrasts. One series has coffee and contemplation, the other has people literally on the verge of a mental breakdown.

But there are some overlapping themes -- loyalty, family, honesty and, weirdly enough, dental health. Did you know Kim Kardashian can smell cavities? It's not as impressive a superpower as Eleven's (Millie Bobby Brown) telekinetic abilities, but it's something.

We took our favorite Stranger Things and KUWTK quotes to New York Comic Con to ask cosplayers if they could tell whether the line came from Hawkins, Ind. or Calabasas, Calif. Not surprisingly, people were really good at it.

Stick around until the end for a guest appearance by the world's best WWE cosplayers!
