* Ordinarily, Jamie isn't much of a comedian, so it means a lot at that at the end of "Phone Book Friction," he's standing next to two phone books [[ItMakesSenseInContext that have been torn apart by tanks]] and says "I just wanted to make a phone call"...and the ''camera crew'' cracks up laughing.

** When testing the solutions for skunk stench, they tried to make one spray them by scare-jumping on it and trying to surprise it...but the skunk didn't pay them attention. They asked for another skunk, ''and this one ignored them too''. So then they resorted to a chemical substitute...which ''still'' was problematic, as it wore off more quickly than the genuine skunk spray, so they had to get yet ''another'' skunk, which ''finally'' sprayed them (but only after a great deal more rigmarole).

* In the attraction episode, one myth they're testing is whether people will become dumber when faced with members of the opposite sex. Adam builds the test area...and proceeds to lock himself in by [[WhatAnIdiot closing the door when the doorknob wasn't installed yet.]] Jamie has to toss over a drill and a screwdriver so Adam can pry the door open.

* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' special, at one point the Build Team decides to get into costume. One StopTrick later, Grant is dressed as Han Solo...and Kari is dressed as Chewie, while [[{{Crossdresser}} Tory is dressed as classic Leia]]. Grant quickly invokes a second StopTrick, which puts Tory in the Wookiee costume and Kari as Leia. Kari is relieved...[[ComicallyMissingThePoint because the first Leia was the wrong Leia]]; the myth was about an Ewok trap, and Kari's costume was Leia's outfit on Endor.
* The "Medieval Mayhem" episode (which involved firing arrows from horseback). The Build Team's attempts to shoot the target from a moving horse were hilarious. Grant especially; he started moving toward the target...and then the horse decided it wanted to go the other way. Grant tried desperately to steer the horse back, but was having no luck. Cue Tory:

** Funny out of context, funnier in context: Prior to the first test of rear axle, Adam gives his estimate percentage chance of what might happen, giving(summarized) "cable breaks but does enough damage to prevent a retest" a 70% chance, "cable breaks but leaves car intact enough for a retest" 20%, and "cable remains intact and rips off the axle as per the myth" 10%. After option B happens, Adam returns and claims he gave the result a 30% chance of happening. He's immediately corrected by a crew member, complete with flashback, but then insists that that was someone else and he gave "50-40-10" as his percentages ([[WritersCannotDoMath even though one will immediately notice that getting 30% out of that is impossible]]). After another flashback to his actual estimates, Adam delivers the line.
