* The ''second episode'' kicked off the trend:
--> '''Hobbes:''' Well, Calvin, I hate to stop your mourning, but there's only ten more seconds in this episode.
--> '''Calvin (to the camera):''' Shall we end it interestingly?
--> '''Hobbes:''' Let's.
--> ''*they rush off screen, [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments then return wearing top hats and holding canes, tap dancing]]*''
* In "Night of the Living Television", when Electro [[WeWillMeetAgain says he will return]]:
--> "[[BlahBlahBlah Blah, blah, blah!]] This is the most boring part of the episode! Hero defeats villain, and villain threatens to come back, more powerful than ever! We've heard it all before, Charlie!"
* Upon [[ItMakesSenseInContext Sherman ripping out an alien transmitter chip from Socrates' head,]] Calvin comments:
--> "We sure get some dramatic writers for this show."
* From "Nighty Shut Up!":
--> '''Hobbes:''' Calvin, did you realize that half of this episode is being used up with you screaming?
--> '''Calvin:''' '''''[[IResembleThatRemark I'M NOT SCREAMING!]]'''''
* In "The Return of Dr. Brainstorm", after the titular character reveals he's kidnapped [[DamselInDistress Calvin's]] [[DistressedDude parents]]:
--> '''Calvin:''' Man, how many times in this show are my parents getting into trouble?
--> '''Hobbes:''' Well, there was the camping episode, then there was the mountain episode...
* Hobbes pulls down the end card at Calvin's request in "Chaos to My Ears".
* He also says "Fade out" to end "Wild Movie".
* After Calvin pulls out the Time Pauser in "The Insane Road Trip":
--> '''Hobbes:''' Can't we go through ''one'' episode without using one of your death trap creations?
--> '''Calvin:''' Sure. We went through Episode 1 without my inventions.
--> '''Hobbes:''' That was the [[PilotEpisode pilot episode.]] [[SelfDeprecation And it stunk too.]]
* Upon finding out that he's staying at the Derkins' house in "A Club's Blow":
--> '''Calvin:''' (having spent most of the way there complaining about Roselyn) "On second thought, Rosalyn's only appeared in one episode during this entire show. Let's bring her back!"
* Some {{Foreshadowing}} in "The Night of the Living Television II":
--> '''Socrates:''' (after finding out that two villains had teamed up) "Who teamed up? Rupert Chill and Dr. Brainstorm?"
--> '''Calvin:''' No, we're saving that for next season.
* From "CALVIN FOR PRESIDENT!":
--> '''Hobbes:''' Calvin, just out of curiosity, when did we pick politics up in this TV show?
--> '''Calvin:''' What are you talking about? I'm not doing anything political.
--> '''Hobbes:''' Oh, never mind. I must have slipped into a different cartoon for a second there.
* Calvin briefly warns Hobbes of the censors in "Roughin' It".
* After the particularly action-packed opening of "Dr. Brain Chill":
--> ''[Calvin looks around the room]''
--> '''Hobbes:''' What is it, Calvin?
--> '''Calvin:''' Oh nothing. I just feel like we just missed out on a big action sequence for some reason.
** And shortly afterwards:
--> '''Socrates:''' Calvin! Hobbes! Camera that likes zooming in and out of things!
*** And later still:
--> '''Jack:''' Faster than the speed of light, huh? When did this show move to the SciFiChannel?
* "Department Store Horrors":
--> '''Dr. Brainstorm:''' ''(berating Jack for blowing their cover)'' Here I am being a creepy burglar and keeping the audience in the dark about who I am, and then ''YOU'' walk up and ruin everything!
--> '''Jack:''' I think the audience has long since figured it out, [[DoNotCallMePaul Frank.]]
* "RIP Calvin":
--> '''Calvin:''' ''(on meeting [[MyFutureSelfAndMe their future selves]])'' That's not possible. Those people are adults. Looks like our show has been spliced in with Franchise/StarTrek or something.
* From "Pranking the Ghosts":
--> '''Calvin:''' Whatever is in there doesn't want ''us'' up there! The nerve of him! He's wiping out a perfectly good suspense scene!
** Later on:
--> '''Calvin:''' ''(talking to a ghost)'' OK, this is really starting to get frustrating! Here we are stretching this story out, so ''you'' can be creepy and weird. SHOW YOURSELF!
* From "The Five Calvins":
--> '''Socrates:''' Uh, did I miss something?
--> '''Stupendous Man:''' Yes. You've missed several things since this special began. Now, let's go.
* [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "An MTM Episode"]]:
--> '''Socrates:''' So, where's Target, today, I mean... Calvin?
--> '''Hobbes:''' Oh, well he's up in his room, trying to fix the MTM. Remember, we had a pretty intense TV movie a while ago, and it ended with the MTM's hologram software blowing up.
** Later, part of Dr. Brainstorm's plan to steal the MTM includes waiting for night to fall [[RuleOfDrama just for drama.]]
* "New Year, New Disasters":
--> '''Hobbes:''' Say, Calvin, why don't you talk to Elliot?
--> '''Calvin:''' What?
--> '''Hobbes:''' Well, why not? It might add some interest to the episode.
--> '''Calvin:''' Well, what am I supposed to ''say'' to the guy? I hate [[CloudCuckoolander his]] [[ThePrankster tiger!]]
--> '''Hobbes:''' Hmm, good point. Well, at least go say hi to him. See if you can get one line of dialogue out of him.
** And later, after Calvin fails to get a good look at him:
--> '''Hobbes:''' Oh, nonsense. Nobody is ''that'' elusive.
--> '''Calvin:''' Well, he's managed to get through two and a half seasons without being introduced. He was even able to conceal his name until mid-season two.
* "Electronic Invasion":
--> '''Calvin:''' (upon several buzzers going off) ACK! [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 WE GOT MOVIE SIGN!]]
--> '''Hobbes:''' Wrong show.
* "A Day in Your Shoes":
--> '''Jacqueline:''' Yeah, I think this chain of attacks should end soon. Otherwise, we'll have to rename the show Dr Brainstorm and Friends.
* "Attack of the Monsters":
--> '''Calvin:''' Yeah right, and [[LampshadeHanging we've been getting]] [[RougeAnglesOfSatin "your" and "you're" switched]] on this show all the time as well. [[note]]Yes, that was a re-occurring problem.[[/note]]
* "The Genius Hamster":
--> '''Holographic Retro''': OK, I'm not even going to ask how you managed to survive that.
--> '''Calvin:''' Yeah, these episodes can get really confusing for you, can't they!
* "Pharaoh Andrew":
--> '''Socrates:''' (trying to find Andy) Well, [he] was [[TheQuietOne never the talkative one]]. Admittedly, [[CharacterDevelopment he's gotten better this season,]] but...
** Later:
--> '''MTM:''' (talking about [[{{Mummy}} the mummies that are after them]]) I'd worry more about the dead people, because if they managed to get ''out'' of the pyramid, we'd have one weird action scene.
** And later still:
--> '''Calvin:''' Oh, it's one of ''these'' episodes again.
* "Thunderstorm":
--> '''Jack:''' (on [[ChaoticEvil Thunderstorm]]) It's a long story and should probably be done with a flashback...
** And later:
--> '''Dr. Brainstorm:''' (on [[ContinuityNod Jack's left arm being loose]]) '''''I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW IT DOESN'T!''''' JACK IS EQUIPPED WITH AUTO-REPAIR NANOTECHNOLOGY NOW! THAT ARM IS ON THERE FOR GOOD! '''''WE HAVEN'T EVEN USED THAT GAG SINCE OUR FIRST APPEARANCE ON THE SHOW!'''''
