* During the commercial for Fist Pump in "Caffeinated Concert Tickets", the announcer mentions that Fist Pump's demographic is people within the age range of eleven to fifteen. However, the end of the episode shows the concert to be completely ''full'' of adults, with absolutely no adolescents in sight. ''Regular Show'' itself has a similar scenario - it's on Cartoon Network, which is primarily a kids' network. However, the more mature level of humor and content (like Fist Pump's declaration of having been just been released from jail and rehab) causes it to primarily be viewed by an older audience. It's all a LampshadeHanging on ''Regular Show'''s own demographics!

* ''My Mom'' shows Muscle Man, who Mordecai considers just a FatIdiot, supervising Mordecai and Rigby. He does an excellent job of that: shows them how they can slack at the job as long as they have won Benson's trust and really accomplish the missions he assigns. Also that Benson, as the boss, deserves to be informed about what his employees are they doing every time. Muscle Man even broke traffic laws because he knows the cop is his friend. He asked the guy at the greenhouse to carry the tree (because it's his job and he knows how to do it right) and even treats Mordecai for the videogames. The thing that makes Muscle Man borders MagnificentBastard is that his "joke" is a BatmanGambit: If Mordecai would not have used his CondescendingCompassion with the "My Mom" jokes, he and Rigby really would have enjoyed Muscle Man's "supervision". So, if like Muscle Man, you can be a Slacker immature guy but if you could not get respect from your coworkers, at least you could get revenge.
* Muscle Man's plan to get revenge on Rigby and Mordecai in ''My Mom'' and ''See you there'' both involve a BatmanGambit: If Rigby and Mordecai would not treated Muscle Man with PityPerversion or accepted Muscle Man�s decision to not invite them to HFG' party, they would not get humiliated so badly and Muscle Man would have get a great time anyway. He spent considerable resources, but he would have won in any scenario a true MagnificentBastard?

* In "Do Me A Solid", Mordecai and Rigby get into a sort of war based on favors. Eventually, under the threat of the world ending, Mordecai is forced to do one last embarrassing task of Rigby's in front of everyone. This task involves squatting down and making sounds similar to an airplane backing out of a runway. [[NobodyPoops It's pretty obvious what that signifies.]] The brilliance? [[spoiler: '''''MORDECAI WAS DOING RIGBY A SOLID.''''']]

*** Doubles as FridgeLogic when you remember how Creator/CartoonNetwork had came under fire before in the last decade for their hypocritical practices of using LiveAction and a fair share of unpopular new shows killing off the classics; in summary, it was their existence being, quoting [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]], "a little hipper to bring back those boys you scared away."

* During Skips' flashback to the night, prom night to be specific, that Desdemona [[spoiler:died]] the song they shared a dance to foreshadows what is to come. [[spoiler: The song was Forever Young by Alphaville, the line "let us die young or let us live forever" comes true with Mona dying young while Skips became immortal thus living forever.]]

* Rigby getting egged seemed pretty light compared to what happened to the rest of the in his Halloween story, until "Eggscellent" when we find out that Rigby is allergic to eggs. To Rigby, it is really a pretty harsh death.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Format Wars II", [=DVDs=] and the Internet are seen as novel concepts [[TechnologyMarchesOn despite them being released in a day and age where they've become very popular]]. What message were the show makers trying to get across?
** Mordecai and Rigby, among other characters, have also used the Internet in the past...

[[WMG: At the end of "Terror Tales of park II", Rigby turns into a wizard. It is even creepier when you realize that the wizard Rigby turned into was the same one from "The Power".]]
Now how do I know he is the same wizard? Look at both of their faces: They have pretty much the exact same nose, and wear simmilar wizard hats. Why is he different this time around you may ask? He probably turned evil after finding out who stole his Keyboard. It is even MORE creepier once you find out he may have killed Rigby for revenge.

* Ever since the "Eggscellent Challenge" Rigby has been shown to eat eggs and egg based products without any ill effects; Rigby is cured of his coma by the trucker's hat, it probably just cured him of his egg allergy!
