* "Blow Your Own Sail" has this bit:
-->'''Grant:''' Fortunately for Tory our health insurance actually covers a full body cast. So if anything untoward happens, he'll be [[IncrediblyLamePun covered]].

* '''Everything''' about Jonathan Banks' practically ''in-character'' appearance (referencing his ''Series/BreakingBad'' assassin Mike Ehrmantraut) in the hitman episode ("Supernatural Shooters"). His reaction to Adam and Jamie's re-enactment of the ''Film/ShootEmUp'' scene is just ''perfect''.

* When testing items to make rope out of to escape from prison, one of the items tested is toilet paper. [[ButtMonkey Tory]] is stuck with testing it. As he's getting ready to climb down....
-->'''Tory:''' Toilet paper rope escape. Probably the stupidest idea ever!
-->'''Grant:''' [[FalseReassurance It's not that stupid!]] You've had stupider ideas!
-->'''Tory:''' I'm gonna kick your butt if I survive, Grant!

** The one that ''really'' takes the cake is ''Finger in a Barrel'', the myth about disabling a shotgun by plugging the barrel with a finger. The whole thing is presented like a ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon, complete with cartoonish caricatures of Jamie and Adam (later dubbed as "The Mythtoons") as "Hunter Hyneman" and "Savage Squirrel" respectively.

** This actually loses some of its humor when you see the outtakes. The whole story goes that Adam was expecting to get a ''tiny'' electric shock from the Ark being hooked up to the recreated "Baghdad Batteries," because they were testing the idea that it may have been used for religious purposes (to "feel God" as Kari put it). When he got actual pain, it's understandable why he was so pissed about it. Adam later explained in a Q & A that the suggestion came from a producer (who is "no longer with us") who thought it would be exciting TV. Even though it may have been quite funny to watch, Adam was seriously pissed off and once it happened no one, even the camera crew, thought it was particularly funny afterward. He said that pranks are a dangerous thing because A) they [[EscalatingPrankWar escalate into more outrageous and dangerous/illegal activities]] and B) they are people with some significant skills and resources at their disposal to make the pranks worse than any normal person could.

* Jamie in the "Death by a falling penny" Myth. Jamie couldn't get the penny to fit in a staple gun, so he trims of the sides, fits it in and fires... without checking what may be overhead. Naturally the penny strikes a mercury lamp, shattering it. What makes it funnier is his sheepish grin followed by the [[TheStoic matter-of-fact "We should get out of here. That's uh, mercury vapor there."]]
