  • Klaus: (head suddenly fills majority of screen) HA!! I made it into the episode!! PAY ME, BITCHES!!
  • This exchange from "Threat Levels":

Stan: What I'm saying is... you're fired!
(A berated cough is heard offscreen, with a hand jutting in front of Stan, signaling Stan to pay him)
Stan: Oh, for god's sake, someone please pay Mr. Trump!

  • In the pilot when Stan freaks out and shoots the toaster apart, to which Hayley states "It's just toast, Dad."
    • When Stan and Francine are making out and Klaus tries to tell Francine that she and him are meant to be together, after which Stan pours fish flakes into his bowl and Klaus exclaims "Happy hour!" before pigging out.
    • After Francine declares she's putting Roger on a diet Roger gets on the kitchen table and it collapses under his weight, after which he says "Oh god, I got a bear claw in my ass".
    • When Stan is giving Hayley a body check and he pulls a pack of gum out of her pocket, he throws it thinking it's a grenade but it doesn't explode and he says "It's just gum".
    • When Stan tries to help Steve get a girl he steals her purse so Steve can get it back, but gets carried away and runs out of the mall, jumping out a window and crushing a car on the way down. Smash Cut to him driving Steve home with glass shards in his face.

  • -->(Stan touches himself while applying ointment) Stan: AAAAEEEEYYYUUUUGHHH! AAAAEEEEYYYUUUUGHHH! (The sound of Stan's cries of pleasure reverberate into the next valley, causing an avalanche)
  • The entire chase scene from "Francine's Flashback" with Stan trying to kill a raccoon like he did when they were young, only this time he's trying to do it deliberately instead of accidentally. The best part is that after Stan leaves the raccoon is revealed to have survived.

Steve: (reading curator's dying message) In the elf condom... what does it mean?
Unnamed P.I.: I'll tell you what it means. It means that we're looking for a horny midget who plays it safe! Come on, boys!

  • That episode of Steve getting addicted to becoming a Vietnam War recreationist. Roger gets in on the fun by torturing Stan by reading the first draft of the Sex and the City movie script.

Roger: "Samantha's story got me thinking. If I fell, would Big be there to catch me?"
[Stan screams in anger]

  • Roger getting thoroughly thrashed by the Taco King in "All About Steve." For no apparent reason.
  • Francine's Imagine Spot in "Surro-Gate" would be mildly amusing if not for its ending where Francine imagines Stan coming at her with a cheetah... carrying a chainsaw.
  • In "Brains, Brains, and Automobiles" Francine trying to teach a bi-polar space cop (Roger) to make iced tea. She starts talking to him very patiently, playing along with him. Suddenly, Roger grabs Francine's head and starts slamming it in the fridge door while screaming "I'm off my meds!"
  • In "Wife Insurance" Stan and his partner Jim get held captive in Colombia. Jim manages to get them out of their cell by romancing the female guard, just by singing some lyrics from "I Need To Know" by Marc Anthony, gyrating his body, and giving her a certain look. The guard moans in utter ecstasy and frees the two. As they escape, they run into another female guard, Jim does the same thing, and he starts having sex with her in the guard tower. The first guard is standing outside with Stan, barely able to contain herself and fidgeting like she has to pee before Stan tells her to "just go".
    • Heck, the entire episode counts. The pre-mission checklist, Wheels and the Legman (banana a dink a dink!), Francine with the Flag Cleaner, then Bullock, then Father Carrington, Jim porking his way through 200 miles of jungle, Stan's backup wife Meg, Barry being interrogated by Roger and Steve using the Bad Cop/Bad Cop method, Jim doing a handstand with a screen-blur, Reggie the CIA Koala, Klaus facing the Scales of Lady Justice, Stan breaking up with Meg, Reggie again, Lady Caroline Lawson and Alejandro Rojas, the ending fight. On their darkest day they are Scooby Doo... maybe Quincy.
  • In "100 A.D." when Stan reads Hayley's note telling him she and Jeff are getting married, Stan gets so angry, the note burns up in his hand and he flies around the world to reverse the flow of time. Or at least he thinks he does.
    • When Stan puts up a reward for anyone who can catch Hayley and Jeff, a bus full of minor characters gets ready to go find them... then reverses through a gate and off a cliff, exploding upon hitting the road, causing the death counter to go from 1 to 97. The explosion then launches the theme park mascot in a bullet suit that shot Stan in a previous episode into the sky.
      • Later on he lands and pierces Stan's Satanist friend in the chest, killing him. A circle of fire them appears and drags them both into Hell.
    • Later on when Steve and Roger (as Wheels and Legman) are driving, Roger becomes strung out on Turkish amphetamines that he dropped into his eye earlier and soon enough goes on a Mushroom Samba and cheese puff binge. When Steve tries to talk to Roger he assumes he is calling him "Legs" because he broke his legs and asks him "What did you do to my legs, you Nazi walrus bastard?!" and appropriately sees him as just that, and also sees Klaus as Garfield and they're driving across an alien landscape.
  • Stan: "I swear yo, shorty be leaning on my last nerve."
  • Nut Punch, BLOCKED, Counter Nut Punch!
  • There's the dramatic car chase to soothing Mexican music, and Stan emptying an entire bottle of horseradish on his steak in "Roy Rogers McFreely".

Jim Henson: Forgive us!
Kermit: You will bow down before me, Son of God!

  • The episode "Joint Custody" where, through a series of coincidences, Stan and Roger are high, and stopped at a convenience store. The whole sequence is one, but the part where Stan is just staring at a shelf of chips while cheesy muzak plays in the background for an absurd length of time caused me to shoot milk out of my nose. The thing is, I hadn't drunk any milk, it was so funny.
    • That episode is an entire Crowning Moment of Funny. From Stan's checklist on being high to Roger floating away when he drops a bag of cat food. (It (sort of) Makes Sense In Context.)
  • "Stan, honey, that's a closet."
  • "Steve fell off a ladder, now he's dead inside, we're going to go save America."
  • Steve thinking giant bumblebees are hovering over their house (It's actually a blimp). His enthusiastic tone makes the line all the more hilarious.

Steve: (Excited) Giant bumblebees! They've come at last!

  • And this exchange in the episode "Office Spaceman":

Stan: (as he's cleaning Roger's protoplasm off the bathroom stall) Ugh, it's everywhere! How could you just leave it like this?
Roger: (staring in the bathroom mirror) Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary...
Stan: Roger!
Roger: (turns around) AAH! SHE'S RIGHT BEHIND ME!

Roger: Shut the trunk, I'm sneaking into the drive-in! *passes out*

  • This little exchange from "It's Good to Be the Queen":

Steve: Oh, I wish I could get back at him. I'm gonna dress up as a girl and get him to have sex with me and then say "Ha! I'm not a girl! You just had sex with a boy that hates you!"

Roger: Yes, let's leave that plan between you, me, and the string of therapists who won't be able to help you.

    • Later on the scene where Jeff is terrified at the sight of a hallucination of himself in a diving suit carrying a harpoon.
    • Klaus lists what Star Wars characters would play which instruments in a band and forgets Yoda until Hayley points it out.

Finally he loses control of the bus and it crashes into a ditch. Then when a police car comes, Roger throws dirt at the officer and kicks him in the crotch, and steals his car. Roger laughs at the joke he just thought then he himself loses control of the car, and crashes into the ditch right near the bus, another police car comes, Roger does what he did with the other officer (already told you, try to remember), and then he steals his car and this time crashes it into the bus.
  • The entire subplot of You Debt Your Life. Espically when Barry gets a chance to do the announcements.
  • This scene from A Pinata Named Desire:

Toshi: EAT... MY... BOWLS!

  • In "Haylias", while Hayley is beating up Stan on top of the limo and knocks the gun out of his hand, he shouts "Gun! Call for help!". It's easy to miss, but makes me chuckle no matter how I felt beforehand.
    • Bullock's Oh Crap moment from the same episode. Even though you are feeling exactly how he is feeling, you can't stop laughing because it is Patrick-effing-STEWART furiously yelling for his car- in Spanish.
  • In the episode where Stan supposedly goes insane and abandons the family after a car salesman keeps swindling him, Hayley and Francine try to make money cleaning houses. Unfortunately, their first house is a woman who believes them to be a couple of Mexican immigrants. As they're cleaning her bathroom, she yells at them "La toilet. La toilet! No es poopoo!". Francine asks if she wants them to clean the toilet, and she repsonds "No! NO! No es poopoo!". Then she threatens to call INS because she thinks one of them broke her coffee maker.
  • The episode where Roger gives Steve a chopstick, calls it a wand, and convinces him that he was invited to Hogwarts. The address Roger gave him was really a crackhouse, and Steve STILL believes it's Hogwarts. Needless to say, Hilarity Ensues.

Roger: Cops already? What, are we next door to a freakin' Krispy Kreme?
Stan: You're thinking about donuts now?
