* [=FromtheWordsofBR=]: You thought "Do or Diaper"'s CruelTwistEnding ending was bad? "Return of Mordecai and the Rigbys"'s ending is even worse. The gang have destroyed all their instruments after a huge fight, causing them to have nothing to play with for the "Battle of the Bands" concert (which they signed up to do so to win an air conditioner thanks to the higher temperatures in the park). So what do they do? They wind up using [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome a capella "instruments"]] that later somehow appear as holographic forms, and they blow everybody away with their performance. If the episode had just ended right there with the guys winning, getting cheered and then having a brief experience with the air conditioner, this would've been inside my top 5 list of favorite ''Regular Show'' episodes, but instead, the episode decides to [[spoiler:pull off a very CruelTwistEnding and reveal that Mordecai [[AllJustADream only hallucinated that]], and they actually didn't win--they suffered from severe heatstroke and wound up being sent to the hospital.]] Not even [[spoiler:the revelation that the hospital room they are in has free A/C]] was enough to save this drastically bad ending.

* dannylightninglightner: "Marvolo the Wizard" wasn't really a ''bad'' episode (and definitely wasn't without its very funny moments,) but the episode's treatment of Pops ebbed into DudeNotFunny territory a few times. As Pops is mostly portrayed as a really timid and easily-frightened character, normally it's funny to see him over-react to things. But because this episode was entirely framed from his point of view, seeing him run around in a complete panic was legitimately sad to watch, especially with the jerk fairgoers taunting him. And Benson, holding the IdiotBall, doesn't actually ''explain'' to Pops what's going on; [[KickTheDog he just yells at him]], making the situation worse. Seeing Benson treat Pops like this was pretty jarring, as Pops is usually something of a MoralityPet to Benson. There's also the scene in which Pops blacks out from accidentally running into a wall; when he comes to, Skips doesn't really seem too concerned, he just tells him to slay the dragon and that this will fix everything. Pops eventually defeats the dragon, and he's overjoyed- [[TheChewToy but the episode won't allow him to celebrate his victory for very long, because immediately afterward, he's knocked out AGAIN.]] The ending scene somewhat implies that Marvolo's appearances in the episode may have been due to Pops hallucinating from getting smacked on the head. Pops has always been something of a comical yet pitiable ButtMonkey ever since the show's inception, but this episode went a little too far with it and pushed him into straight-up [[TheWoobie woobie]] territory.

* Jdawg1015: The Season 4 finale "Steak Me Amadeus." This episode is so bad, that I have put more effort into what I have written below than I have into some school assignments. I have never really hated an episode of any TV show this much. Not even new Spongebob. And that's saying something. So, what's the background behind this episode? After four seasons of Mordecai and Margaret's "will they or won't they" storyline, it finally seemed that they were actually going to have a good relationship. After the events of "Meteor Moves," where Mordecai and Margaret get out of the Friendzone, I was expecting a lot from this episode, which surrounds Mordecai asking Margaret to be his girlfriend. So it starts off with a montage of Mordecai and Margaret out together, including a scene of them kissing on a Ferris Wheel. We then cut to Mordecai practicing how he's going to ask Margaret to be his girlfriend, when Rigby walks in. Mordecai tells Rigby that he's taking Margaret to a fancy restaurant called Steak Me Amadeus, and is able to pay for it with "Amadeus Dollars," coupons used by the restaurant that Pops gave everyone for Christmas, and Mordecai got everyone else's dollars in exchange for favors. Rigby gives Mordecai his Amadeus Dollars, saying that he has his respect for asking Margaret to be his girlfriend. So far, the episode seems to be going in the right place. Margaret calls Mordecai telling him that she'll be late, and to wait for her at the restaurant. Mordecai tells the lady working at the restaurant that he has a lot of Amadeus Dollars that he can use to pay for a fancier table. And then, the episode goes completely downhill. All of a sudden, the lady presses a button, and FBI agents come in and take Mordecai away. And then we see... all of the park workers handcuffed in a dark room. What. The. Hell???? Since when are they involved in this episode? This was supposed to be a Mordecai and Margaret episode! What are everyone else doing here? And that's not even my main problem with that. My main problem is how it cuts from Mordecai being taken away to everyone handcuffed. I'm sorry, but I think we're missing something here...Oh, I know, an explanation! Did the writers forget a scene which explains why Mordecai got taken away? Why all of the park workers got involved? Well, let's just go with it for now. It turns out that Mordecai had fake Amadeus Dollars, which got everyone else involved. Well, OK, but how did the FBI know that Mordecai's dollars were fake? The lady just assumed that, because Mordecai only showed her three dollars, they had to be the counterfeit ones that they were trying to get? How paranoid is she? Yet another plothole. So, because Mordecai had the fake money, without even knowing it was fake, Rigby, Benson, Skips, Pops, Muscle Man, HFG, and Thomas are suddenly involved in the episode. Pops confesses that he was the one who got the fake money, and since the man who sold them to him gave him a business card, they call the number and arrange for him to come to the restaurant, and the FBI agents (who, by the way are complete expies of [[Series/TheXFiles Mulder and Scully]]) agree that if Mordecai can prove that the guy is the counterfeiter, they're all off the hook. But wait, there's a problem! How is Mordecai supposed to catch the counterfeiter when he is on a date? Yeah, because the writers apparently didn't forget about the plotline they suddenly abandoned! So Margaret arrives and tries to tell Mordecai something, but then the counterfeiter shows up and he has to go talk to him and make him reveal that he is the counterfeiter. So after a conversation, the counterfeiter pulls out a gun, and it is revealed that he is... the leader of the Capicola Gang from "Fuzzy Dice!" Hey, nice CallBack... wait what? I thought he died when a missile blew up his boat! How is he still alive? [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat No one could survive that!]] So now, instead of the Mordecai-Margaret plot we thought was going to occur, we have a shootout between the park workers and the Capicola Gang. During the shootout, Mordecai takes Margaret aside and asks her to be his girlfriend in a very heartwarming way. But [[spoiler: Margaret says that since she got accepted to her dream college, she is unable to, and runs away crying.]] The leader of the Capicola Gang disses college, saying he never went, and look at him now. Then, the owner of the restaurant suddenly comes in and blows up the three gang members for berating college education. Yeah, because the first time they got blown up, they died. The episode then ends with Mordecai on the roof of the house after taking Margaret to the airport, looking at the sunset, and Rigby comes and consoles him with some soda. This would be one of my favorite episodes if it had only stuck to the plot it started with. The way Margaret broke up with Mordecai was so heartwrenching- or at least it would be if it wasn't in the middle of a shootout that resulted from the inexplicable plot twist that occurred earlier! Seriously, it cuts from Mordecai and Margaret's conversation, which is supposed to be heartwarming to Muscle Man rolling around on the floor shooting the gun in all directions while squealing. Is that really how seriously the writers were treating this important moment of the show? If the episode went with the straightforward plot of Mordecai and Margaret, then this would be one of the best episodes of all time. It would show how not all long-term relationships have happy endings, and in a spectacular way. The way they did it was absolutely terrible. It would have possibly made me cry if I wasn't recovering from what just happened. In conclusion, the fact that this was supposed to be a Mordecai-Margaret episode, and that plot got pushed to the side for another one that came straight out of nowhere, with a lot of plotholes, while attempting to have a very serious event occur in a relationship between two characters, in the season finale no less, is why I hate this episode so much.
