* In the myth that throwing a fire extinguisher on a fire will cause it to explode and put out the fire, the team had already had two failures, both of which took several minutes to fail. Now they tested the third extinguisher, full of chemical foam, which led to this '''''unbelievable''''' exchange just seconds after they dropped it in.
-->'''Tory:''' Anyone bring any cards?\\
'''Grant:''' Let's do charades.\\
'''Tory:''' Okay, you first. Two words!\\
'''Grant:''' ''(cracks up laughing)'' I-I can't do this!\\
'''Tory:''' [[TemptingFate Sounds like...]]\\
'''''[[StuffBlowingUp BIG BOOM]]'''''\\
'''Tory:''' YEAH! It put out the fire! It exploded and put out the fire!\\
'''Kari:''' Oh my god!\\
'''Tory:'''[[MoodWhiplash It's spraying - ew, it's raining foam]].\\
'''Kari:''' Oh God!\\
'''Grant:''' Let's get out of here!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxvdrge1q00 It must be seen.]]
* In the "Frozen Turkey Drop" myth:
** Grant and Tory built a turkey-dropping rig and gave it a pair of plastic hands. As they tested the rig, the arms ''slammed'' together, and the plastic hands utterly shattered. The completely shocked looks on Tory and Grant's faces were funny enough, but the crown on the Crowning Moment comes when Kari walked in, holding a piece of one of the hands, and ''completely deadpanned:''
--->"Do we want to talk about why I just got hit in the head with a thumb?"
** Which comes almost immediately after Tory's completely dumbfounded "What...the heck..."
** Anything involving the hideous ballistics gel dog is golden, especially Kari's bizarre CutenessProximity fondness for it.
* The [=MythBusters=] also have a habit of overkill. The example that comes immediately to mind is shooting a fish in a barrel... ''[[GatlingGood with a gatling gun]]''. Because any confirmation involving guns needs MoreDakka.
** "If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing."
* Testing the myth of a cell phone causing an explosion at a gas station, Adam and Jamie quickly discover their small scale test isn't quite small enough when it produces a '''huge''' fireball. Knowing he probably was, Adam asks:
-->'''Adam''': Am I missing an eyebrow?
** And as it turns out, Jamie informed him that [[MoodWhiplash he had lost a lot of hair too]].
*** Not just that. It's revealed in a later episode (a retrospective) that he had a date the next night, and was going to propose! Fortunately, in spite of the missing eyebrow and shorter hair (some of it was singed off along with the eyebrow), the date went great, and she said "yes"!
* 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."
** Also, Jamie using the modified penny gun to shoot Adam ''in the ass''.
*** Jamie was, at that time, also the Mythbusters' safety officer. Make of it what you will.
*** Adam repeated this experience during a visit to ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'' in the buildup to the series finale, with Stephen being the one to pull the trigger this time. It's just as funny 13 years later.
* During the Hammer vs. Hammer myth: Tory was trying to drive in a nail with one swing. He missed the nail twice, hitting the same spot both times.
-->'''Grant''': "Why don't you put the nail there?"\\
'''Narrator''': "It's worth noting a smart remark rarely goes unpunished."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5ZXxUqDwzs&feature=related Cue the hammer slipping out of Tory's hand and nailing]] Grant in the shin, missing the steel-toe cap of his shoe.
* The episode where they visit NASA to investigate the moon landing, and Grant spots a worryingly-labeled alarm:
--> '''Grant''': Oxygen deficiency alarm? Is that something I should be worried about?\\
'''NASA worker''': [[DeadpanSnarker Only if it goes off.]]
* The Ming Dynasty Astronaut Myth. Basically, it's the myth that an wealthy astronomer from the Ming Dynasty strapped 47 rockets to his throne and, as eyewitnesses said, went into orbit in a puff of smoke, never to be seen again. After hearing that, we all know what really happened, but the humor comes in at the confirmation via giant explosion: in that puff of smoke, he didn't go up into orbit, he evaporated.
-->'''Adam''': [[ExactWords Buster was taken to another world in a puff of smoke.]]
* Here's a video of Adam Savage [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdOsn4eesg8&hd=1 singing "I Will Survive"]] [[spoiler:...as [[LordOfTheRings Gollum]]]].
* The episodes involving alcohol myths.
** You can tell from the name of the first "Alcohol Myths" episode that it's going to be very funny, but quite ''how'' funny, you might not guess. Suffice to say, Adam, Jamie, and Kari are all hilarious drunks, but the highlight has to be Adam's attempt to test claims that exercise sobers you up quickly by running on a treadmill... which he falls off of. Twice. This is then followed by Adam testing the claim that a slap to the face (provided by Jamie) will sober you up. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2seiHua3Fc The high-speed footage was hysterical]], and made even better by the fact that ''it actually worked''.
--->'''Adam''': That's the funniest thing I've ever seen!
** In a different alcohol myth, Tory and Grant have to get drunk enough to get a hangover the next day. Twice. It's hilarious both times, especially when they try to go couch-surfing and when Tory jumps into bed from ''on top of a wall''. If you listen carefully, you can even hear the ''crew'' going "Tory, wait..."
*** In that same myth, we find out that beer + liqueur = Grant-ain't-hungover. (Tory, by comparison, had a splitting headache.)
* Tory's infamous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBEmInSdsx4 cycling mishap]]. It's even funnier because while Tory was amusing himself out of earshot, Scottie suggested, "Let's egg him on until he hurts himself." She never expected he actually ''would.''
** It's even better in [=MythBusters=] Revealed / the Top 25 [=MythBusters=] Moments special, where Tory explains he went through with it specifically ''because'' Scottie and Kari said he could totally make it. (Kari insists she was being sarcastic.)
** From the same episode, Adam gets his fingers caught in the door of the pick-up as Scotty slammed it shut. (Unintentionally of course. Adam was even quick to claim it wasn't even her fault.)
* Adam getting shocked by the fake Ark of the Covenant after the build team wires it up to an electric fence.
-->'''Kari:''' Did you feel God?
** 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. You can see on Tory's face especially (being the only religious one of the bunch) how uncomfortable he is not only from a moral standpoint but also a sacrilegious one. He said that pranks are a dangerous thing because A) they [[EscalatingWar 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.
** It gets its humor back when Adam tries to get his revenge in a later episode by setting off a homemade smoke bomb. [[spoiler:He fails miserably, although the smoke bomb was remarkably resistant to attempts to put it out, which was funny enough on its own.]]
* Another great moment involving electricity was when Adam, Jamie, Scottie, and Kari were playing with the Van der Graaf generator in the "static cannon" myth, the highlights of which have to be Scottie and Kari teasing Jamie for being skittish about getting shocked and all of them shocking Adam on the ass while he's got his hand on the generator.
--> '''Adam''': Stop sparking my [[SoundEffectsBleep *HONK HONK*]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSVfYwdGSsQ "What car?"]]
-->'''Adam''': ''Wow''! Holy crap! [''gasps'']\\
'''Jamie''': [''nowhere near as excited, but grinning''] That didn't mess around.
** Perhaps made funnier if you notice that one of the rockets flies onscreen AFTER impact, since it was a 1st stage rocket that was left behind by the much faster 2nd stage rockets.
* The "[[http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-lego-ball.html Giant Ball of Lego bricks]]" myth from the Website/YouTube special. A large group of volunteers spend two weeks using a million Lego bricks to build a seven-foot tall ball, start it rolling down a course to see if it will damage a car at the end... only to see it [[EpicFail break apart half-way down.]]
** As much humor as there was in that, it was also almost a TearJerker... all that work, '''wasted.'''
** Although for more awesomeness, when they tried to test each individual aspect of the myth they busted the aspect of just how many individual bricks it took to make the ball. Why? Because they collected ''damn well near an entire country's worth of borrowed, used and new LEGO pieces'' just to get a ''tenth'' of the number of LEGO bricks specified in the video. They still made the ball, just not with the same number of bricks the video mentioned (they used 1 million bricks, instead of the 5 million stated in the video). Imagine having nearly a quarter as many LEGO bricks as they had.
** Sadly this wasn't shown in the episode, but one of the volunteers threw a LEGO brick at Tory when he told her "less talk, more work!" You can just see her pull back her arm to throw it before the camera cuts.
*** The "volunteer" is actually Kari. Which makes it even funnier, of course.
* Grant beats the fMRI lie-detector test and is [[RapidFireYes unsurprisingly]] [[FistPump pleased]] about it. Tory & Kari, facing a 3,000-mile bus trip back to San Francisco for their failure, have this priceless exchange:
--> '''Tory''': Well, looks like we get to take that cross-country trip [[MirthlessLaughter we've been talking about for so long...]] ''*sighs*'' Oh well, what are you gonna do.\\
'''Kari''': [[PrecisionFStrike F]][[SoundEffectBleep uc]][[AccidentalPun k]]!\\
''*[[ActuallyPrettyFunny everyone laughs]]*''
* In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk_zpMory-0#t=1m08s "Bull in a China Shop"]] myth, while Kari is discussing the safety precautions they've taken with the shelves they've built for the bulls to trash, we see [[FunnyBackgroundEvent Tory run onscreen in the background, take a flying leap, and land with a crunch on one of said shelves]]. Adding to the funny is the exasperated look on Kari's face as she finishes what she was saying ''without looking around'', making it patently obvious she knew Tory was responsible and isn't the least bit surprised by it - while Tory just lies there silently basking in his efforts.
** The myth itself is also pretty hilarious. It sure looks like a ForegoneConclusion that the bulls will smash up everything, and the main concern is constructing harmless shelving that won't harm the bulls. Then the bulls ''completely'' bust the myth by nimbly running through the china shop, politely taking care not to disturb the proprietor's wares!
*** Turned UpToEleven when they put as many as four bulls in there, and only one shelf (and one or two assorted pieces of china) got knocked over.
** And again when it's revisited in the two hour Top 25 [=MythBusters=] Moments episode. Kari's voice over of just what the phrase "bull in a china shop" means is accompanied by a montage of Tory breaking things and hurting himself.
* Adam's KubrickStare at any fan(s) claiming vindication during the "Ninja Catching An Arrow" re-test. [[http://i.imgur.com/ANR6bNN.png It's a glorious thing.]]
* Tory and Grant are flying a mini-kite. It's unstable, so they tie a rock to the tail. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t4O79FkQl4 Hilarity ensues.]] Needless to say [[GroinAttack that was a BAD idea.]]
** The fact that Tory got nailed between the legs right after calling it "the kite of punishment" is just the icing on the cake.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-XbjFn3aqE&NR=1 Sulfur hexafluoride.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLRZ_UpDhb0 Tory putting a taser to his nipple just for the sake of doing it.]]
** Made even funnier when, thinking it was just Tory and the researcher goofing around, Adam moves to see the final attempt better.
* In the Crimes and Mythdemeanors special, they busted the myth of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LovGVrrIuk using magnets to climb through an air vent]]. It created [[WithCatLikeTread so much ridiculous noise]] that it was impossible to be sneaky. After the first big CLANG caused by Jamie's use of magnets:
-->'''Adam:''' Why, Thor, the God of Thunder, is trying to enter my building!\\
'''Tory:''' Somebody needs to check that air conditioner!
** There's also Adam's prediction of this:
--->'''Adam:''' I think Jamie's is gonna be like: ''KNNNG! KNNNG! KNNNG!'' -- and I ''believe''... in a security manual? The proper response to that sound coming from your duct is to just riddle your duct with bullets.\\
'''Narrator:''' With Kari and Grant heading up security, bullet riddling seems unlikely. But with Tory? You never know...
** At one point the suction gave out on one of Adam's climbers when testing it, smacking him on the head. Complete with a cartoonish "WHAM".
** Jamie gets a wonderful NotSoStoic moment out of it too, while inside the duct.
--->'''Tory:''' Jamie, how you doing?\\
'''Jamie:''' ''[giggle then [[{{Beat}} a pause]]]'' I'm okay!\\
[''everyone laughs'']\\
'''Tory:''' Jamie do you think this is a practical way to get up a duct?\\
[''another [[{{Beat}} pause'']]]\\
'''Jamie:''' Nope!
** The narrator's description:
--->'''Narrator:''' Here's some key phrases from the 'Surreptitious Entry Heist Manual': Be the breeze. ''*KLANG*'' Light as a feather. ''*CRASH BONG*'' The footfall of a kitten. ''*KRASH KLANGKING BOM CRASHSHSHSHSH*''
*** One YouTube commenter thinks that what he really means is: "Be the blow. Heavy as a brick. The footfall of Optimus Prime."
* There was the time they tested smooth golf balls vs dimpled by having a pro golfer hit them. He complained the smooth ones were like hitting a brick.
-->'''Jamie''': *''deadpan''* I swapped it out when you weren't looking.
** Later in the same episode, after the results are announced, Adam can't keep from giggling the whole time. Jamie's response just sets him off even worse.
--->'''Jamie''': I feel like eating my beret. ({{Beat}}) Uh. I'm not gonna.
* "Killer Brace Position", when they're finally ready to test it. You hear music and someone singing opera, [[LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn then the camera shows ADAM, actually singing it!]] [[note]]It's the Toreador song from Theatre/{{Carmen}}.[[/note]]
** Right before Adam, Kari and Tory were about to personally test keeping their heads back, Kari is hyperventilating into a paper bag, and Adam suddenly slams it.
* Adam cooking a pot of wee to use as a cleaning agent in the {{Pirate}} special, complete with a hilariously bad French chef accent.
** And Kari's sudden change of facial expression when the guys bring her in to judge the results and inform her that stale urine was one of the cleaners being tested. Her FlatWhat is almost audible.
** From the same episode, since the crew doesn't have access to a black powder cannon (yet), Jamie and Adam rig up a compressed air substitute to test whether splinters generated from hitting ship hulls are more dangerous/lethal than the cannonball hit itself. Cue Adam throwing together a pitch for the high-pressure 6-pdr artillery piece as ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ym8uoKhlek The Blowhard 3000]].''
* After several failed attempts at beating a motion-sensing camera, Kari, Grant and Tory test whether [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2v6JyjhfWQ holding a white sheet up as you walk]] will help. None of them expect it to work, which makes it even funnier when they find out ''it does''.
** Then, there's the ''other'' way they attempt to foil the motion detector... by wearing a ''giant suit made out of yellow shag carpeting.'' The "chicken suit" is still in the background in many of the myth introduction shots.
-->'''Kari''': Save yourself the embarrassment- do ''not'' try what you're about to see at home.
* Adam and Jamie training for their rooftop-chase-dumpster-dive myth. While Jamie is prepping for his first test jump, Adam grabs a megaphone and says, ''in a completely deadpan tone'', "Jamie, don't jump, you've got so much to live for."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEInbnz5XG0 "I reject your reality and substitute my own!"]]
** 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.
* Pretty much any time that a myth gets introduced by an animation.
** 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 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2d_4BY9dLtA presented]] like a ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon, complete with cartoonish caricatures of Jamie and Adam (dubbed "The Mythtoons") as "Hunter Hyneman" and "Savage Squirrel" respectively.
* From the Diet Coke and Mentos segment, we have:
-->'''Narrator''': Meanwhile, Adam, for reasons known only to himself, puts a bottle of Coke on the lathe. No prizes for guessing what happens next.
** Cue the soda bottle (predictably) exploding. It's even better because some of the soda drips land on the camera lens.
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab2rVT9qgjw this]] "bloopers" feature, a close-up of flowers suddenly jumps to Adam giving a "viewer discretion is advised" warning. He then turns around and runs off into the background, revealing that he's naked except for a large flowerpot held at groin level. Jamie just watches him go, and the camera crew can be heard cracking up when he hits his hip on the corner of the bench Jamie is standing behind. You can hear his "OW".
* In one episode, Kari, Grant, and Tory, are testing to see if sound waves could be recorded on clay bottles. To test this, Tory screamed at a clay jar as they were etching into it with a needle.
-->'''Announcer:''' And Kari is about to say what every forensic scientist dreams of being able to say.\\
'''Kari:''' YOU CRAZY KILLER!!
** For the next two recording tests, she just yells, "TORY!!!" at the top of her voice. The second time, both Tory and the narrator deliver punchlines:
-->'''Narrator:''' The voice of an angel rings out...\\
'''Kari:''' TORY!!!\\
'''Narrator:''' ...or maybe, make that the devil.\\
'''Tory:''' That was a ''good'' one, Kari. Now I know what it would be like to be ''married'' to you.
* During the Myths Revisited first episode of Season 2, which is pretty much entirely hilarious, Adam is covered in gold paint, and has to have someone test his temperature... [[AssShove rectally]]. Medic Sanjay Singh does the deed. Cue Adam:
-->'''Adam''': Oh, Sanjay, Sanjay, will you respect me tomorrow?
* The {{banana peel}} myth. THE BANANA PEEL MYTH.
** Compounded by the fact that Jamie Hyneman, Mister FlatJoy himself, is actually unable to finish the experiment because he ''can't stop laughing.'' And then there's the fact they used animal birthing lubricant as a counterpoint in slipperiness...
* The episode where the myth of an empty beer bottle being a deadlier weapon than a full one involved making a gelatin brain to wobble inside of a clear "skull". After making the test, there was a segment where Adam, paraphrased, told it
--> Remember when I built a robot that would swing a beer bottle into your head? [''reaches over with a spoon, spoons up and eats some of the gelatin''] Not anymore you don't! Mmm, what a delicious memory.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMiVNPXR5qw Talking To Plants]]. The abuse heaped on the peas.
-->'''Adam''': You called your peas "freshmen"?\\
'''Kari''': ...I was running out of material.
* JD's theme song in the Exploding Piano myth:
--> ''Go JD / Go JD / Fill this piano with TNT''
** Aren't you forgetting what that song was a prelude to? The [=MythBusters=] Concerto in C-4 was a magnificent piece. Anyone with the proper equipment can play it, too; just blow up a piano.
* In the "Waterslide Wipeout" episode, Adam drops his roll of duct tape -- which instantly zips out of reach down the ramp and doesn't stop rolling until it ''flies'' off the end and into the water, tracked by the camera all the while.
-->'''Adam:''' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W8EwuMOi8I Can I get another roll of duct tape?]]
** If you listen carefully, you'll notice that even [[TheComicallySerious Jamie]] starts to crack up (from off-camera)
* From the Demolition Derby Special:
** There is a car suspended from a crane. Kari: "Next on [=MythBusters=], find out why we can't get car insurance."
** When the car's roof gets shorn off by a tractor-trailer, it keeps going when the braking system fails and ''goes airborne'' off a small berm, clearing the chain fence behind it. You can immediately see Tory and Kari's faces shift from "This is Awesome!" to "OhCrap."[[note]]Thankfully, there was nothing to damage on the other side--presumably that was a concern when E-Tech designed that test track.[[/note]]
--->'''Tory:''' Hey, what's on the other side of that berm?\\
'''Kari:''' Uh oh.
* The ''foomf'' sound effect when they successfully try out their car ejector seat. It's the simple things, sometimes.
** Not to mention the fact that it actually worked so well when they didn't quite expect it to do so at such a low air pressure setting (10 psi, as opposed to over 100 psi at its maximum setting which it was designed to operate), so they were caught by surprise. Also funny what happened to the seat - it not only cleared the car's roof, it also slammed the (open) trunk shut and cleared the partially closed garage door behind the car (in short, it went all the way out of the garage!).
* During the "Escape From Alcatraz" myth, the team had to make a boat out of raincoats by pounding them together using quick drying cement.
--> '''Adam''' [''hammering a raincoat with a rubber mallet''] Wait! [''Jamie stops''] Was that a guard? [''Jamie chuckles''] No!\\
'''''([[WithCatlikeTread BANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANG]])'''''
** Jamie has confirmed that this is his favourite Adam joke from the show.
* The HotBlooded Stanford rowing coach for "Rowboat waterskier":
--> Bad formations did not get the man on the moon and will not get this [=MythBuster=] out of the water! This is ''Apollo 13'', baby, and Houston, we ''don't'' have a problem!\\
Jiminy Jack Christmas!\\
Nice lock-on Big Dog! That was all you, that was all you!\\
We're pullin' your ass out! You're gonna be doing this thing without a wetsuit and a beret and glasses on, if I have my way.
* The entirety of the Top 25 episode, where they list their favorite things about the show, when it isn't being awesome. Namely, thing #7, which is Jamie Hyneman. At one point, it compares him to a walrus while swimming. Also, #3 is Adam and Tory hurting themselves...
** What really sold the Jamie segment was Grant's comment at the end, after a string of "impressions" of Jamie that consisted of Grant holding his fingers up in front of his face to simulate a mustache in various moods:
--->'''Grant:''' You can't use that. He will ''kill'' me.
** [[http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-epic-failures.html #22, a.k.a. Failure Is Always an Option]], first opens with Adam, Tory and Kari [[HilariousOuttakes failing to introduce the next moment properly.]] It all culminates with Jamie saying this:
--->'''Jamie:''' Can we just roll the [[SoundEffectBleep *honk honk*]] tape?
*** Adam makes an offhand remark during the above clip: "This doesn't happen to me; it usually happens to Jamie". This is actually a CallBack to a previous behind-the-scenes special (''[=MythBusters=] Revealed''), which features over a ''minute's'' worth of clips of Jamie getting tongue-tied. Including one ''during'' the interview for the special.
** The special opens with a mock AvengersAssemble introduction, with Adam dropping in from the ceiling in mountain climbing gear. He then proceeds to attempt to follow Kari, Tory and Grant as they walk off-screen to start compiling moments, only to get part way before he reaches [[IncrediblyLamePun the end of his rope]] and gets pulled back.
* In "Walking on Water":
** When they were testing the mizugumo, we get this gem of a line.
---> '''Adam:''' COME, SILENT WALRUS! Let us storm the castle! I will don my safety gear!\\
'''Jamie''': ...
*** Even funnier considering the fact that Adam's mouth is covered up, and he is busily punctuating his words with Franchise/PowerRangers-esque head jerks.
** Adam puts on a pair of shoes that the narrator describes as looking like "container ships." As Adam tries to step off the edge of the pool into the water, he immediately loses his balance and falls face-first into the water. As Jamie looks on, Adam simply says; "If I had any dignity, that would have been humiliating."
* When Grant and Tory went into the water in the Jaws special, we find out Grant doesn't like fish touching him. This results in him screaming "Help!" in a ''Cajun accent'', which sounds like "HAYELP!!!"
** Kari's taunting certainly didn't help:
---> '''Kari:''' It's really realistic, almost like you're scared!
** And then proceeds to ''shriek'' at the top of his lungs, "'''''SOMETHING JUST TOUCHED ME.'''''"
** Before getting into the water with sharks, this exchange.
---> '''Tory:''' I hope they like sushi!\\
'''Grant:''' Oh, I hope they like Italian!
** And after the first test, Kari tells them they need to go in the water ''again'', switching roles to remove the variable of who the swimmers were:
---> '''Grant:''' Oh, damn you and your science!
* The boys did the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vhZ24WKV4o cold open of the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson]]. Adam was in his spacesuit get-up, and both had to hold up cue cards for their lines in the song. But Jamie is just... Jamie. And for the most part, stands there totally deadpan the whole time, [[TheComicallySerious which makes it frackin' hilarious]].
* 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.
* Then there was the Creator/BenjaminFranklin myth...
-->'''Tory''': And we killed a [[ArtisticLicenseHistory dead president]]!\\
'''Grant''': He was never president...\\
[''Kari and Grant walk away, not quite holding in their laughter'']\\
'''Tory''': Wasn't he? ...Dammit.
* Tory's [[GroinAttack repeated accidents]]. He recently said he just hopes he can still have children.
* Adam and Jamie test ''taking candy from a baby'' and ''losing'' to one.
** At the end of the last test, Adam asks the oldest baby for a high-five. She gives him one. (Sure, it doesn't sound like much, but picture a one-and-a-half-year old giving a pretty solid high-five for someone of that age. It really is the little things sometimes.)
* Adam attempting to walk on hot coals ''without knowing the technique''.
-->'''Adam''' (calling his wife): Hello honey, I walked on hot coals today and I burned the hell out of my feet.
* From one of the early seasons while testing how to beat the breathalyzer, they had to have a few drinks first to get into the right range. In the extended cut of the episode, Adam's first breath test after proclaiming himself "lit" was... [[CantHoldHisLiquor a .03]]. (.08 is legally drunk in California.)
-->'''Adam:''' I swear, I'm a cheap date!
** Immediately after:
--->'''Jamie:''' Adam, the police officer said you need to drink more.\\
'''Adam:''' You know, my Doctor was also telling me that I'm not getting enough tar... so, I need to start smoking again!
** Then:
--->'''Adam:''' So we've had 13 drinks over 3 hours. I know I'm drunk, but I can't even remotely tell that you're drunk. It's kind of annoying. I want to see you put a [[LampshadeWearing lampshade on your head]] or something.\\
'''Jamie:''' Sorry, bub!
** And then:
--->'''Police Officer:''' [to Adam] He's doing fine. You just sit over there and be quiet. It's rough enough to have one of you here. But having two...\\
'''Adam:''' [laughing] Of course I'm causing trouble.
* When Adam and Jamie built their arrow "machine gun," it had... problems. Lots of problems. Eventually, during one of its many, many breakdowns, Adam just gives up:
-->''Arg! Bleck! [[{{Angrish}} Wackem treggy wickum boogum barsher...]] BLEH! [[ContinuityNod Fudge! Babies! ...Baby hippos!]]''
* On the first test of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SU7xkYmWwmQ Appliances in Bathtub]] myth.
--> '''Adam:''' [''referring to the hair-dryer''] What kind of ground-fault interruption is ''this''! It's ''pumping water!'' [[CaptainObvious I would say]] [[AndThatsTerrible that's bad!]]
** From that same episode:
---> '''Adam''': Next item, one of my personal favorites... *''high-pitched voice''* the curling iron! Let's go!\\
'''Jamie''': What are you, [[Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse Pee-wee Herman]]?
* The No Pain, No Gain episode give us this gem after the confirmation of the myth that women can take pain better than men:
-->'''Adam:''' In your face, men!... [[OhWait oh]].
* From the Cold Feet Myth, when Kari examines her meal:
-->Why is it that I am a grown woman, and boys are still trying to make me eat bugs?
* The Compact Compact revisit gives us this gem. Jamie wanted to use more breakaway rope than Adam. Adam got his way, and sure enough, the rope breaks prematurely.
-->'''Jamie''': The weakest link in the chain was the breakaway rope and that's what we wanted it to be.\\
'''[[FunWithSubtitles Subtitle]]''': The weakest link in the chain was Adam!\\
'''Jamie''': Now exactly how strong does that have to be, it's really kind of... it's a guess.\\
'''[[FunWithSubtitles Subtitle]]''': Exactly how strong it needed to be was what I said it was.\\
'''Jamie''': And we guessed wrong.\\
'''[[FunWithSubtitles Subtitle]]''': And Adam guessed wrong.\\
'''Jamie''': Uh...\\
'''[[FunWithSubtitles Subtitle]]''': [[SymbolSwearing %$#!]].\\
'''Jamie''': ...We need to put more rope on there.
** Earlier in that scene:
--->'''Jamie''': *''sing-song''* It's gonna go into the water...\\
'''Adam''': [[RapidFireNo No no no no no NO NO NO NO!]] [''truck stops''] [[BigYes YES!]]
* Adam is getting frustrated with Jamie's reluctance to do a larger scale test of the ping pong ball device. After a heated exchange, he storms off and starts hitting random things to let off steam. Jamie's reaction?
-->'''Jamie''': [''to the camera''] Adam needs a cookie. [''back to Adam''] We just tested it. It works. Stop whining and go have a cookie.
** In ''[=MythBusters=] Revealed'', Jamie reveals his comment has to do with his belief that Adam sometimes gets so involved with his builds he ForgetsToEat, and in these cases Adam gets a bit cranky due to low blood sugar. A quick-fix for this issue is for Adam to ''literally'' go have a cookie.
** The uncut version shows that the progression was slowed further because of [[PlayfulOtter an otter]] that swam into the sunken boat and [[StickyFingers stole one of the ping pong balls]].
* ''Adam'': I'm a sad monkey.
** From the same myth, the torpedo flying into the sky. Test 1 was particularly hilarious, as it flew into the sky to a ridiculous height and did a few loops.
* During the "Blue Ice from a Plane" myth, when the (now red for visual ease) ice hits the ground, a nearby bird is visibly startled by the impact and starts flying away. It's subtle and very possible to miss completely, but it's hilarious.
* The Build Team has failed to make fire by rubbing two sticks together, so they put a stick into a power drill and spin it against ''gunpowder.'' [[ExactWords That's the only way they could make fire with two sticks!]]
* Then there's the bit in the second ''Film/JamesBond'' special where ''three'' Adams sing "fire in the hole", prompting the Narrator to comment, "...Okay, Adam, now you're just really taking the barbershop thing too far. Just press the detonation button, will ya?"
* From the Pirate Myths, we have a tumbleweed inexplicably showing up as Adam is grinding down a cannonball to fit into the cannon, and Tory digging a hole as the others pretend they're in a nature documentary.
* In the Pottery Record myth, Tory has a ludicrous leadfoot... on a ''pottery wheel.'' Yes, his first instinct when he comes across a pedal-powered pottery wheel is to floor it. It sends clay ''flying'' across the workshop. His first pot ends up being ''very'' small as a result.
* In the "Paper Armor" myth:
** Kari's [[ShoutOut homage]] to [[Series/WonderWoman Lynda Carter's]] spinning TransformationSequence.
** Tory nonchalantly flings one of the resin-laminated paper squares off to the side. It embeds itself in a piece of cardboard. Tory then just ''breaks down.'' His reaction is almost as funny as the unexpected landing!
* In the "Mirror Lights" myth, Jamie makes the darkened room the brightest it gets in the whole myth. How? By stepping into the beams of light cast by the mirrors... and letting it ''bounce off his white shirt.'' Jamie is literally ''glowing'' as the beams scatter off his starched white shirt. Adam loses it.
-->'''Jamie:''' And you said I didn't know how to light up a room.\\
'''Adam:''' I stand corrected.
* Adam is failing to make a hovercraft, and he's already gone over his budget ''twice'', so he's feeling a little down. So the cameraman tries to comfort him:
-->'''Adam:''' I'm out, I'm out of ideas, just this second. [''laughs when the cameraman pats his shoulder''] When a pat comes from the cameraman, you know it's really, really bad.
* Grant is showing Adam and Jamie how to fly his model airplane as part of the "airplane on a conveyor belt" myth. Jamie is uncomfortable:
-->'''Jamie:''' I don't know if I can handle this, actually. We're using this particular item the way that it was intended.
* Adam loves doing a fake NatureDocumentary voice-over whenever he's near the camera (i.e. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZigahtFzeE the Wild Hyneman]]) and Jamie is in the distance. These are funny enough, but one time Jamie turns around in the middle of one of these and outright says "Is he doing his Creator/DavidAttenborough thing again?" Adam loses it.
** Less well-known, but just as funny, is Tory's Creator/DonLaFontaine impression that he busts out a few times towards the end of his run with the show - especially the time he punctuates it with [[ItMakesSenseInContext the sound of a rubber seagull]].
* After years of imitating Jamie for comedic effect, Adam gets a professional lesson in emulating the Hyneman for the "Mission Impossible Mask" myth. The pro, not unexpectedly, absolutely nails it.
-->'''Terry [=McGovern=]:''' Gestures - a lot of work with the mustache and the beard. Now the voice, OK - very monotone, very low pitch, very authoritative.\\
[''gets into character'']\\
'''Terry:''' I'm excited. This is really thrilling. I used to collect moles... and spores.\\
'''Adam:''' [''barely holding it together, to camera''] He's pretty good.\\
'''Terry:''' [''still in character, exasperated sigh''] Are we done?
* In the "Walk in a straight line blindfolded" episode:
** At the beginning, Adam is blindfolded and we get this exchange:
--->'''Adam:''' You ever work on something, and it's not going the way you want it to, and you feel like you're just... going around in circles?\\
'''Jamie:''' I know ''exactly'' what you mean. [''[[TalkingWithSigns holds up a sign that says]] "Every day I have to work with him"'']
** At the end of the opening segment, Jamie holds up a sign that says "Bye" then walks away, and Adam doesn't notice and just keeps talking.
** At the end of the episode, the roles are reversed; Jamie's blindfolded and Adam's holding up the signs. As Jamie starts talking, Adam holds up a sign saying "Here we go...", and when Jamie starts lamenting on the fact that they couldn't figure out why [[spoiler:the myth was confirmed]], Adam's sign reads "Always complaining".
** The simple fact that the episode ends with two grown men lost in the woods[[note]]Well, okay, Jamie was able to maintain course, but Adam's path sketched an ampersand on the GPS, so ''he'' at least was lost[[/note]] with ''big plastic buckets'' on their heads. Apparently this is an actual inclement weather simulation tactic used by professionals.
* The beginning of the "''Film/JamesBond'' Special." Within about one minute we see Jamie in a tuxedo; Kari doing an over-the-top Bond Girl voice; Adam wearing scar makeup (and looking like a genuine Bond villain); Grant trying (and failing) to look menacing; and Jamie introducing himself as "Hyneman. James Hyneman." before [[BondGunBarrel shooting at the camera]] a la the ''007'' films.
* At the end of the small-scale test for the "Rocket Man" myth, Kari, Grant, and Tory are standing on a platform with several missiles as Grant lowers it into the ground. Realizing how much they look like supervillains, Grant starts ''[[EvilLaugh laughing maniacally]]'' as they drop out of view, with Kari adding in a few of her own laughs. Tory's reaction to all of this: a simple shrug as he looks at the camera.
** Basically, any time [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Tory]] ends up playing the StraightMan to the other two members of the Build Team, since it generally means the other two are being ''very'' over-the-top, on top of it being a prime OutOfCharacterMoment. Kari and Scottie's antics partway through the "Talking to Plants" myth is a prime example.
*** Tory definitely [[NotSoAboveItAll was not above]] indulging in his own hammy tendencies during that myth. There's the moment when he and Scottie go to a vinyl shop to get the rock and classical [=CDs=] for testing - cue an impromptu headbanging mosh pit for two as they're giving the death metal a listen.
* "Robo-Turkey" in the Bird Car Tip myth. Grant rigs up a frozen turkey with robotics to make its tiny, featherless wings flap and its legs rumble. It's disturbing, but it's also a ''naked cybernetically enhanced turkey flopping around on the roof of a car.''
** Later, when they ''finally'' manage to make the car tip over, the 80+ frozen Cornish game hens Kari threw on the hood of the car go ''flying off'' at breakneck speed as the car tumbles down the ramp. It's so utterly ludicrous it must be seen to be believed.
* In the Confederate Rocket myth, Grant is attempting to talk about nitrous oxide gas... while in the presence of an apparatus that's slowly creating the stuff. Given that the common term for nitrous oxide is "laughing gas", [[HilariousOuttakes I think you]] [[{{Corpsing}} can guess]] [[HilarityEnsues what ensues]].
--> '''Narrator:''' [[DeadpanSnarker They've clearly made laughing gas.]] But what is he trying to ''say''?
* The coffee creamer fireball, a classic MassOhCrap moment for Grant, Kari and Tory.
* During the "Mind Control Chip" myth, Adam had to learn how to use a studfinder in its various modes. Jamie placed a series of studs, metal tubes, wires, and microchips behind a wall in oddball configurations. Adam was mostly able to find the larger items behind the wall (not the microchips, though), but one area proved a bit of a blind spot. When Adam went around to the other side of the wall, he saw what he'd missed: [[spoiler:A series of metal wires twisted into the words "Adam is a spasm".]] Adam lost it.
* In the Duct Tape Island episode:
** In a complete role-reversal, Adam is the one who finds and creates their shelter (complete with furniture and a homemade chess set) while Jamie creates a surfboard out of duct tape and tries to use it. Too bad Jamie doesn't know how to surf...
** At the end of the episode, after escaping from the island and a few congratulatory minutes...
---> '''Jamie''' "Adam. [[spoiler: It's the same island.]]"\\
'''Adam''' *FacePalm*
** If you look closely, you can see that Jamie used some Duct Tape to patch the hole in his shirt.
* The test in which the Build Team determined the swinging speed of a swordsman for the "Catching a Sword" myth in the first ninja special is a '''''goldmine''''' of these:
** They stick a nametag that says "[[JustForFun/{{Hello}} hello]] my name is ninja" on the ballistic bust being used for the test, just for kicks.
** Kari is explaining the test procedure to the boys when "Master Savage" ambushes them. Funny: Adam shouting "Your kung fu is no good!" in his HongKongDub voice and smacking Tory in the face. Funnier: A bemused Tory completely no-selling Adam prior to that point.
** Adam channels Ballistic Ninja after Tory takes the first swing:
--->'''Adam:''' Master! He hit me in the ''head''! You teach him a lesson!
** Grant preps for his turn by crouching with the sword in his hands. Tory ''and'' the Narrator both take the opportunity to riff on him. (Which [[TranquilFury ends up working well]], since Grant ultimately sets the benchmark with his effort.)
--->'''Tory:''' The ninja must go to the bathroom before he swings his sword...\\
'''Narrator:''' He hasn't looked this incensed since ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Star Trek]]'' was cancelled.
* In episode 213: Pingpong rescue, after they bust the myth that balloons are able to lift a 40 pound child off the ground, instead of the team saying that the myth is busted, they have the kid they used in the episode jumping on the "busted" sign repeatedly saying "Busted-Busted-Busted!" both hilarious and adorable.
* In the "Confederate Steam Machine Gun" episode, Adam has finished his piece of the rig: a reloading mechanism for the machine gun. He then launches into a bizarre explanation (with a ''hilariously'' bad French accent and complete with subtitles) of the rig, which finally culminates in [[EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped the subtitles saying "...I think I'm losing my marbles," before flashing "???"]] as Adam finishes the sequence with what amounts to ''complete nonsense''. Granted, Adam is a funny man regardless, but...
** If you actually do listen, it's not merely nonsense, it's TrueArtIsIncomprehensible taken to the next level, acting like a French artist describing a surrealistic work of art in the most obtuse and [[LargeHam hammy]] way possible, which only works to make it ''funnier''.
* Square wheels. Specifically, square wheels on a huge truck. Somehow, watching it go clunk-clunk-clunk-clunk down the road at a progressive pace is utterly hilarious.
* While testing NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight, Jamie runs screaming at Adam holding a foam knife... only to trip, fall on his face and skid the rest of the way to where Adam was standing. Naturally, it was caught on high-speed as well.
-->'''Rob Lee:''' Less ''Film/TrueGrit'', more ''Film/BlazingSaddles''.
* Grant looking into his blowgun and accidentally shining the laser sight into his eyes.
** From the same myth, Kari revealing she'd concealed a copper tube inside her blowgun, which was cheating. Specifically, Tory and Grant's reaction. Kari then points out that Grant at least didn't have much room to complain, considering he'd used a ''laser sight''.
* Tory, Grant and Kari attempting to build a jet-engined Go-Kart - the myth said it went at crazy speed, yet when they did get it to work, it only went 5 mph! This results in perhaps the slowest [[RunningGag fence collision]] in ''[=MythBusters=]'' history.
-->'''Grant:''' [[GradeSystemSnark Look out, people! It's coming through!]]
* Tory, Grant, and Kari are testing whether an all-right turn route is more efficient. As they are in San Francisco, this happens:
-->'''Kari:''' Oh my god, we're going to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lombard_Street_%28San_Francisco%29 Lombard Street!]]\\
'''Tory:''' Ah, I love a challenge!\\
'''Kari:''' That's the crookedest street in the city, possibly the world!\\
'''Grant:''' No, [[TakeThat that's Wall Street]].
* The "No Pain, No Gain" episode features (as might be expected) several myths about pain. During the introduction to the segment, Jamie chips in:
-->'''Jamie:''' I got one. You're a pain in the ''[[[SoundEffectBleep WHEEEE!]]]''
* In the 2012 Halloween special, there's a quick shot that sums up the entire show: In a dark room, Jamie lights a match to illuminate his face and says...
-->'''Jamie:''' What scares Adam? ''I do''.
* In the Alaskan CabinFever myth, Adam and Jamie are forced to endure isolation, loneliness, and dreary, dull, uninspired conditions for days on end. These men are both highly active, almost over-creative thinkers, so it's clear that [[HilarityEnsues this won't end well]]. It comes to a head when Kari decides to mess with them by including an [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Abominable Snowman]] in the test to peer in through the windows of their cabins. [[TheStoic Jamie]] being [[DeadpanSnarker Jamie]], he simply states "Oh great, we've got a Yeti outside," with his usual tone of mild annoyance. Adam's response is much more animated and hilarious: he freaks out and hides in the bathroom, fearfully peering out past the doorjamb to make sure it's gone.
** Another hilarious moment was Adam describing a dream he had that he was in a plane slowly crashing in the streets of San Francisco with Adam in the cockpit until (in-dream) said this to the passengers.
--->'''Adam:''' Listen, I don't think this is a real plane crash 'cause I happened to notice that I'm not wearing any pants and whenever I'm not wearing any pants, it's probably a dream.
* [[KillerOutfit Driving in Heels]]. Jamie Hyneman in a Nomex race suit and 4 inch bright red high heels. Need I say more?
** Yes, don't forget the super-groovy white leather platform shoes.
* The [[http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/mythbusters/videos/combustion-chamber.htm Aftershow]] is a goldmine of these.
-->'''Question:''' Was it hard to show restraint with [the Dynamite Ax myth]? Weren't you itching to just add 100 pounds of explosives just to see what happens?\\
'''Kari:''' What, you think we're just crazy, that we're just--\\
'''Tory (simultaneously):''' [[MadBomber Yes.]]
* Jamie giggling like a child while being propelled around the workshop on roller skates by his prototype for the hovercraft is gold.
* After a full episode of building up to re-testing the JATO rocket car myth, they finally get to the actual test... and right as the car approaches the ramp, it [[spoiler:abruptly explodes, shocking everyone]]. Obviously nobody on the scene expected it, and from the set-up, neither does anyone watching for the first time.
* One involving Frank Doyle: during the Exploding Pants myth, he was supervising Tory while Tory was preparing the chemicals that were going to be tested.
-->'''Tory:''' Why are you standing so far away?\\
'''[[DeadpanSnarker Frank]]:''' Because I want to continue to live.\\
'''Tory:''' So the question now is: [[FridgeHorror why am I standing so close?]]
* During the second Alaskan myths special, there's a flashback of the first special's snowplow myths and how their inflatable doll crash-test-dummies both were popped in the testing, and it shows Tory grabbing the female one to extremely over-the-top tragic music in slow motion while he ''attempts CPR on the doll, with a squeak-toy sound effect going off every time he pressed on her "heart"''.
* Any episode involving [[NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals uncooperative animals]].
** The entire "Fainting Goats," myth. First a goat accidentally [[GroinAttack kicked Tory in the nuts]]. Then Kari brought out "the big guns" and ''"flashed" the goats'' with no effect (on the goats. Tory immediately hit the ground, stiff as a board). For their last attempt, they disguised themselves as farm animals... and finally got some goats to fall over. Meanwhile, the camera crew were accidentally causing goats to faint left and right. Kari and Tory were not amused.
** 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).
*** A behind-the-scenes special reveals that one attempt to frighten a skunk was Jamie spinning in circles while holding the cage by the handle. Adam thinks he can maximize the scariness by coming out of left field and hollering in the skunk's face. ''While Jamie's still spinning the cage!'' Needless to say, Jamie hits Adam in the face, but, like any self-inflicted injury, Adam just shakes it off.
** They had similar problems when testing if the quacking of ducks didn't have echo. Trying everything on them to make them quack had no effect, leading to Jamie's famous "Quack, damn you!" quote. Eventually, the ducks quacked ''without any provocation'' when they brought them back together. Apparently ducks don't quack when there aren't any other ducks to quack ''to''.
*** At the very end of the episode, after all the testing was finished, they brought the ducks to a dock. Upon seeing the water, the two ducks begin quacking with more enthusiasm than they had at any point during testing.
** In the myth involving caimans, Kari, Tory and Grant tried to provoke them into a quick attack, but again the animals didn't cooperate. It's especially funny when they were using a chicken on one, as the reptile ''slowly'' turned its head to look at it, then just as slowly it gave a couple of steps towards it ''and stopped again'', like it was thinking "not worth the effort''. It got so bad that Kari, Tory and Grant threw themselves to them and, as expected, that didn't work.
** The animal doesn't even have to be part of the experiment: The "Ping Pong Rescue" experiment was delayed by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzFhiYr_nGk an otter that stole one of the ping pong balls.]]
* In the episode where they were testing the fan theory that Jack and Rose in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'' could have both survived, this is how Adam introduced their guest.
-->'''Adam:''' This is James friggin' Cameron.
** Cameron's reaction?
--->'''Cameron:''' I am indeed James friggin' Cameron.
* After the Drain Disaster myth had been tested, [[spoiler: and eventually confirmed,]] Adam stands with a manhole cover with the numeral 2 on it. What Adam says is golden:
--> '''Adam:''' Well, if there's one thing everyone knows they can expect from a sewer explosion, it's that [[StealthPun number two is gonna fly into the air]].
* J.D. Nelson in the YouTube Special, commenting that, if the million-matchhead cannon were to go off while they were standing next to it, it would be "time to de-ass the area with a quickness."
** Also, his deadpan "you guys have way too much time on your hands" when told what the plan is.
* During the zombie episode, the build team is trying to figure out ways to trick and sneak past a zombie horde. Kari is the first one to try her plan--shoving [[ButtMonkey Tory]] into a wheelchair, duct taping him to it, and shoving him to the zombies as bait. And it works!
** There's also something about what Grant recorded his robot "double" to say that tickles the funny bone:
--> '''Robot Grant:''' Hello! Zombies! Here I am! Come and get me! My brain is ''juicy'' and ''delicious''!
** From the same episode, Adam and Jamie testing to see if a hundred zombies could break through a barn door. [[GuestStarPartyMember Special guest]] [[Series/TheWalkingDead Michael Rooker]] [[IShallTauntYou taunts]] [[FlippingTheBird the zombies]] at the start of the test. At the end of the [[spoiler: third, and only, successful]] test, Jamie [[NotSoAboveItAll joins in on the taunting.]]
* Revisiting an old myth based on a ''Series/MrBean'' episode and a ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' comic, the [=MythBusters=] attempt to paint an entire room by virtue of explosives immersed in paint. Adam cheats the system slightly by painting ''[[AmbiguousSyntax with]]'' explosives, IE, art pieces instead of simply going for wall coverage. The contraption he builds is already good for a giggle in and of itself, but it's his comment upon seeing the results of the slow-motion footage that sells it.
--> '''Adam:''' ''Look! It's like a clown's [[YourHeadASplode head exploded]]!''
* The Jamie's House of Bent Barrels advertisement during "Bullet Baloney". Jamie using a southern drawl makes this all the more hilarious.
--> '''Jamie:''' We got a gun that will do whatever you want. [''points curved gun barrel upward''] Duck huntin'. [''points curved gun barrel downward''] Fishin'. Heck, it'll shoot things you can't even see. Only $19.95. Curved ammo sold separately.
* Adam and Jamie's complete and utter failure at trying to herd cats. Getting all the cats to react to the same thing at the same time is pretty much impossible, some of them just refused to react or move at all, and even if the boys succeeded in getting them in the pen they kept walking out. They even tried an actual ''herding dog'' and failed. By the end of it the poor dog was cowering behind its handler.
* Tory, Kari and Grant trying to catch greased pigs. Then Tory and Grant come up with overly-elaborate devices that are supposed to make the pigs easier to catch. Kari ends up beating them both with [[BoringButPractical a pair of gloves with fur on them]].
* During the original Archimedes Death Ray build, Jamie finds a flaw with the design.
-->'''Jamie:''' Our DeathRay... doesn't seem to be working. I'm standing right in it, and... I'm not dead yet.
* When the Build Team tested self-hypnosis, they called in [[FunPersonified Adam]] to test for his fear of bees. One test later, Tory gives him the self-hypnosis CD.
-->'''Tory:''' Alright then. This is the CD that you're gonna listen to for a week, and this will help you get over your fear of bees.\\
'''Adam:''' Did you guys make this?\\
'''Tory:''' We ordered it online. So, you're in good hands! It's the professionals!\\
'''Adam:''' I didn't wanna hear you going "'''DUDE, IT'S TOTALLY OK! IT'S TOTALLY OK!'''"
* During the escape slide parachute myth, Adam and Grant find the survival ration kit to the escape raft they're using... which is extremely out of date. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LkBxQZYTJU&feature=player_detailpage#t=695 Hilarity ensues]] as they try out the various things inside, such as a green-colored liquid (which Grant drinks and Adam thinks is alien blood), expired bandages, and coffee-flavored stimulants, which Grant and Adam jokingly say they have an addiction for afterwards. To quote Jamie:
-->'''Jamie:''' It's just like Christmas!
* In the ''Killer Tissue Box'' episode, one of the "alternative" objects they use on a ballistics gel rectangle is a hatchet. As the Narrator says, it winds up looking like "something from a b-grade slasher film". After getting over his hysterics, Adam delivers the coup de grace:
-->''Adam:'' [[Memes/{{Advertising}} This is your head; this is your head with an axe in it.]] Are we clear?
* Adam's [[JustAStupidAccent pirate accent]] never fails to give Jamie the giggles. At best, he can be seen to be barely keeping it together, and at worse, he's pretty much a goner.
* In ''Fireball Stun Gun'', Kari learns that, when faced with runaway fireworks, she will use a co-worker as a human shield.
* 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.
* The first myth of the traffic episode. The RageQuit was so potent it mirrored the actual event in RealLife.
* The sound that Jamie's "pop gun" makes after it's modified to fire grenades for the "shoot a grenade out of the air" myth. It makes the [=MythBusters=] lose it.
* 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:
--> '''Tory:''' [[Film/StarWarsANewHope Use the horse, Grant.]]\\
'''Grant:''' Oh... '[[LamePunReaction use the horse]]'! Hah!
* When preparing the final test for the "Christmas Tree Lights" myth, Adam fails to properly hang one of the baubles, which rolls off the tree and bounces off the floor before Adam catches it.
-->'''Adam:''' Hah ha! Are these not glass? *throw* *smack* Oh, they are.
* In "Dangerous Driving", Adam and Jamie are testing whether talking with your cell phone "hands-free" is just as bad as holding it in your hand. To facilitate this, they're given access to a multimillion-dollar driving simulator. So what's the first thing Jamie does with it? Goes full ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'', crashing into cars, through buildings, and starting an impromptu race with a AI speeder on the highway.
** The producers like to set up shots of the Mythbusters entering various buildings. However, for the first time, the walk-through-entrance shot is blown when Adam and Jamie are stopped by a locked door at the Stanford University Automotive Innovation Facility. Both back off, and Adam turns and bursts out laughing.
* '''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''.
* The "Duct Tape Canyon" special culminates in Adam and Jamie constructing rafts out of duct tape and bubble wrap to float down the Colorado River. [[ItMakesSenseInContext In Tuxedos.]]
-->'''Adam''': You know, if anyone saw us, all we have to say is, ''[[CassandraTruth "No one is going to believe you."]]''
* Two words: [[https://twitter.com/donttrythis/status/643548091254075392?lang=en Duck Bomb]]. And his earlier testing of the [[https://twitter.com/donttrythis/status/641734303907381249 Duck Army]], especially his MyGodWhatHaveIDone expressions.
* 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!
** As it turns out, it works! ...[[AmusingInjuries up until Tory swung on in in celebration.]]
* "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]].
* When testing the RPG (Rocket-Propelled Grenade) vs. Handgun myth from the movie RED, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5elJNyLVEQ the Build Team test-fires an RPG at a flimsy old trailer]] "Just to see what it does." The resulting high-speed shot is one of the funniest, and most awesome, in the show's history. The RPG leaves a [[ImpactSilhouette perfectly round hole, with four vertical lines coming off it from the RPG's stabilizing fins.]] Then the whole trailer vanishes in an epic explosion.
* Jamie's small scale test of whether or not explosives can pancake a car succeeds, first try. During his interview segment afterwards Adam wonders what they're going to do next, if Jamie will want to run some more tests or if they'll just go home. Cut to Jamie...
-->'''Jamie:''' Well, we're not just going home-\\
'''Adam:''' ''(off-camera)'' Oh, come on!
* In the second Battle of the Sexes show, one woman does such a poor job parallel parking and scores a 0, singlehandidly destroying the woman's average.
-->'''Kari''' That was a [[PunctuatedForEmphasis license, revoking, parking job!]]
* During Air Cylinder Rocket.
-->'''Jamie:''' These tanks are actually filled with geese, and they're complaining.
* Kari [[WackyCravings giving up vegetarianism for her mother's beef stew (and ONLY that recipe)]] is worth a snicker or two, especially since she couldn't stomach working with the meat and her husband had to make it for her.
