* RemTar85: To me the biggest DMOS in the show's history is the episode "Do Me a Solid", where Mordecai asks Rigby to do him a "solid" (pretty much a favor) by accompanying him on a double date with Margaret and Eileen. To sweeten the deal, Mordecai offers Rigby ten solids in return. Rigby accepts, and what does he do? During the double date, he uses his solids to humiliate, demean and embarrass Mordecai, all to ruin his chances with Margaret. We never find out what the final solid is, but it's something apparently so disgusting that Mordecai refuses doing it, causing one of the typical world-ending cataclysms seen almost daily in the park, requiring Mordecai to do the embarrassing, disgusting solid in front of everybody, including Margaret. To add insult to injury, the whole thing is taped, and Rigby and the others at the park (minus Benson) are still laughing over it while watching it the next day. The lowest point comes when Mordecai rightfully wants to end the friendship with Rigby, but decides that Rigby should be forgiven when Rigby casually breaks the tape of Mordecai's humiliation. So what if he broke the tape? Everybody saw it and knows what he did, breaking the tape changes nothing! This episode was the point that cemented Rigby as an irredeemable, selfish, ManipulativeBastard with no good qualities who is as bad and probably worse than the villains the characters often face.

* gene0129: The episode ''Jinx''. It involved Rigby being jinxed by Mordecai to where if he says anything, the latter punches him, and the only way to unjinx was to get someone to say the name three times in a row. When he gets fed up with this, he goes to Skips to get him to unjinx by writing down on a piece of paper instead out of fear that Mordecai is watching him. What does Skips do instead? He joins in on beating Rigby! Okay, seriously? I expected that kind of assholeness from Muscle-Man!

Besides, Mordecai was overall a complete fucking asshole here and I'm glad he got he would get his just desserts in "Do Me a Solid", an episode that would air later.

* mysticfire: All right, I removed my earlier entry on ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' in favor of Mordecai's behavior throughout ''Rigby's Graduation Day Special''. Overall, I think this is honestly one of the best episodes of the series, but I would be remiss if I didn't publicly register my frustration with Mordecai. I had not really been liking Mordecai ever since the [[YourCheatingHeart ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' fiasco]], and this episode just cemented my contempt for his character in the later seasons. This episode serves as the conclusion of Rigby's two-seasons-long effort to graduate high school, and he is chosen to give the commencement address, which will be filmed for a TV show. Meanwhile, the park staff is getting ready to throw Rigby a party, and Mordecai just generally acts mopey and mouthy when the others ask him what Rigby likes. Mordecai even claims that [[Jerkass graduating high school is the least a person can do]] and asks why it is so special, to which Hi Five Ghost [[LampshadeHanging registers his disbelief that he has to explain to Mordecai what an accomplishment this is for Rigby.]] Mordecai is then tasked with taking Skips' van to get a special soda for Rigby, which is out of season and thus he needs to drive out to the manufacturer. This sets up a heartwarming scene, but then Mordecai whines the whole time. Rigby is getting nervous about writing his speech and calls to ask Mordecai for help, and the latter snaps and hangs up on him. Rigby calls later to ask for help again, while Mordecai is on the way home with the surprise, and what does Mordecai do? [[spoiler: He throws the soda out the window.]] I don't care that Mordecai [[spoiler: actually did go back and get the soda]], because that is ruined for me by the fact that 1) Mordecai wasn't even in the arena during the ceremony: he instead was pouting next to the van and didn't even consider going inside until Rigby started floundering on his speech; and 2) he flatly admits to Rigby that it's hard to see him doing so well because that makes [[ItsAllAboutMe Mordecai feel worse about himself.]] On some level I can understand Mordecai's feelings, but Mordecai has not actively tried to improve his life and seems to want Rigby around so he can feel superior to someone. Rigby has spent so much time improving his life and Mordecai [[ItsAllAboutMe still made it all about him.]] I don't know why [[EasilyForgiven Rigby wasn't mad at Mordecai for at least several episodes after this,]] giving that the latter's apology didn't feel especially genuine to me. Also, aside from Rigby's brief frustration with him, [[KarmaHoudini Mordecai does not receive any appropriate calling out for his extremely selfish behavior.]]

* mysticfire: All right, I removed my earlier entry on ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' for this one, and it has to do with everything that Mordecai does in the episode ''Rigby's Graduation Day Special''. Overall, I think this is honestly one of the best episodes of the series, but I would be remiss if I didn't publicly register my frustration with Mordecai. If anyone saw my earlier entry that I removed in favor of this, I had not really been liking [[YourCheatingHeart Mordecai]] ever since the ''Merry Christmas Mordecai'' fiasco, but one consolation was that Rigby was actually getting his life together. This is the culmination of Rigby's two-seasons-long effort to graduate high school, and he is chosen to give the commencement address, which will be filmed for a TV show. Meanwhile, the park staff is getting ready to throw Rigby a party, and Mordecai just generally acts mopey and mouthy when the others ask him what Rigby likes. Mordecai even claims that [[Jerkass graduating high school is the least a person can do]] and asks why it is so special, to which Hi Five Ghost [[LampshadeHanging registers his disbelief that he has to explain to Mordecai what an accomplishment this is for Rigby.]] Mordecai is then tasked with taking Skips' van to get a special soda for Rigby, which is out of season and thus he needs to drive out to the manufacturer. This sets up a heartwarming scene, but then Mordecai whines the whole time. Rigby is getting nervous about writing his speech and calls to ask Mordecai for help, and the latter snaps and hangs up on him.

* mysticfire: All right, I'm gonna say it. There have been some truly awful moments on the show, but most of them I've kinda been okay with because they were confined to that one episode and haven't really dragged out over the course of an entire story arc. But my vote has got to go to ''Merry Christmas Mordecai.'' I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting, and the impending [[LoveTriangle CJ/Mordecai/Margaret]] drama was handled relatively well...until the last minute or so of the episode. To reiterate, in the first part of the episode we are treated to Mordecai "pulling several Mordecais" when he learns from Eileen that Margaret will be at her party. Does Mordecai act cool about it and not make the whole thing about him and his drama because Eileen obviously worked hard to throw this party? Nah, that's assuming too much of him! [[ItsAllAboutMe He hyperventilates and runs away before Eileen can tell him something else important.]] The episode then shows Mordecai being a total wuss, and [[OnlySaneMan Rigby rightly calling him out for it.]] Then, at the party, Mordecai tells CJ that she is the one he likes now, which makes her very happy. As soon as CJ leaves to use the restroom, Mordecai talks to Margaret, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy who says she is glad he is happy with CJ.]] This would have been the best way to end the episode, in my opinion. But then, for no real reason, [[spoiler: Mordecai and Margaret kiss in full view of CJ.]] And to top it off, [[spoiler: Eileen finally tells Mordecai what she was trying to say the whole time, that Margaret is her new roommate and will be finishing the semester in town. CJ understandably drives away pissed, and the episode ends with her leaving.]] What a way to slap all of your viewers in the face! Not only was it somewhat [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness out of character]] for [[spoiler: Mordecai to kiss Margaret as soon as CJ turned her back,]] but now we are left with this cliffhanger that leaves little hope for Mordecai to be redeemed in my eyes. It doesn't matter which girl Mordecai chooses; the dethroning moment comes from this both being incredibly out of character for Mordecai and something of a BigLippedAlligatorMoment just for the sake for a LoveTriangle. About the only thing that redeemed this episode was [[spoiler: Rigby's Christmas present to Eileen and him subsequently pecking her on the cheek, albeit that took a bit of prompting from Mordecai.]] Let's just hope whatever follows this isn't as god-awful as this train wreck of an episode.
