* "Doug Throws a Party": Doug's fantasies during the Truth or Dare game are funny in part because they involve characters acting the opposite of the way we'd expect them to act. In one fantasy, Patti badmouths Doug and rants about how terrible their movie date was while appearing on a LoveConnection style talk show (with Roger as host). In another, she flees in terror when Doug is dared to kiss her, crashing through a door and leaving an ImpactSilhouette of herself while Doug tauntingly chases her ("Pucker up, here I come!"). And in a third, Doug imagines himself in a laboratory strapped to a table while Roger the mad scientist hypnotizes him and forces him to tell the truth about his feelings for Patti in a robotic monotone voice.

* In the Disney version, Doug's English teacher Ms. Kristal gets ''really'' into reading to the class, to the point she dresses in costume to match the book. [[BeyondTheImpossible This even includes ''flying'' while reading Peter Pan]].
-->'''Doug:''' We're ''still'' wondering how she did that.

** Quite a few of Judy's antics in the episode. One scene has her prepping for her performance by screaming "I HATE YOU!!!!" at a mirror. And then, when Doug shows up to ask her about her performances, she responds by calmly saying "Yes I'm performing at your school tomorrow and no nothing you can say will change my mind." [[GenreSavvy before he can even get a word out]].

**From the same episode, the ending: Roger dares Doug to take off Connie's hat and expose her bad haircut. Doug refuses, but Roger ends up snatching the hat off anyway. Connie's response is to punch him in the stomach and exclaim, "Why don't you ''grow up,'' you big baby?" Roger doubles over in pain and spends the rest of the night sulking on the Funnie's porch.

* In Doug: Oh, Baby," Doug and Judy accidentally lock Dirtbike inside the Dink household. Judy suggests she could dig her way inside, but with a spoon it would take about two decades. Meanwhile, Phil and Theda are on their way home earlier than planned and hope the kids aren't having too much trouble watching the baby. Phil insists they're responsible and levelheaded. Hard cut to Judy frantically trying to dig a hole with said spoon, and she's already managed to dig a foot deep hole.
** Much later, after setting off the alarm system in the Dink house to get the alarm company to open the front door, Doug and Judy notice most of the neighborhood and the police have shown up. Judy then tries to distract them by singing "America the Beautiful," and she manages to get several people, including one of the officers, to join in.

** On the opposite end of the spectrum: Roger's dare is, "I dare you to kiss Patti Mayonnaise!" Doug approaches Patti and kisses her on the lips, which dissolves into a beach scene at sunset, where Doug and Patti re-enact the famous scene in ''Film/FromHereToEternity'', ending with Patti passionately saying, "Oh, Doug!" Yeah, in your dreams, Doug.

* Mrs. Wingo is reading to the class: "And then, King Ludwig of Bavaria went insane." One of the most out-of-context lines ever.

* When Judy is fired as director of the Founder's Day Pageant in "Doug's on Stage" and the kids are forced to go back to the "boring, traditional" way they've done the pageant before. The "boring, traditional" way is nevertheless funny because of the lameness of the dialogue and the wooden way in which the kids deliver their lines.
--> '''Patti:''' ''[as Thaddeus Bluff's wife]'' Prithee, tell us why 'tis errant, to settle betwixt, two, fork-ed, trees?
--> '''Boomer:''' ''[as one of the two fork-ed trees]'' I don't know. Just 'tis. That's all.
** Then there's Doug and Roger having trouble with their horse costume, forcing the curtain to come down and someone to hold up a sign reading "Intermission."

** Then there's the "comedy of errors" that results when Doug tries to open the letter before his parents see it - he clips off too big a chunk of the envelope and has to tape it back on; he tries to use a letter opener but slices his finger and bleeds all over the envelope; he tries to use white correction fluid to cover up the blood stains and ends up spilling it; in his panic to get tissues to wipe up that mess, he knocks over his inkwell and creates ''another'' mess. Porkchop's reactions add to the humor.
