Awesome: The Cleveland Show
  • Cleveland's totally improv rap after Federline Jones requests it. Because he is, in fact, straight outta Stoolbend, he's a crazy muthafucka named Cleveland.
  • Similarly, Cleveland Jr. burning a Kanye West poser. (who was actually played by Kanye himself)
    Cleveland Jr.: A, B, C, D, E, F, G...
    [beat]
    Cleveland Jr.: Someone shoulda told you not to fuck with me.
  • Holt's Big Damn Heroes moment in the episode "Cleveland's Angels".
  • Cleveland Jr.'s sudden Imagination Powers in a recent episode.
  • Pretty much the entire second half of "Hot Cocoa Bang Bang" with Cleveland Jr. leading the nerds on a rampage through comic-con and Cleveland's showdown with Robert Rodriguez.
  • In "Das Shrimp Boat" Cleveland taking out an entire group of Somali pirates while high on energy pills.
  • Roberta beating up a trio of college frat boys in "B.M.O.C"
  • Rallo singing "Mother" by Danzig. A nice BLAM from the show.
  • Tim showing up to confront Donna about faking being injured.
    Tim: Yeah you did, you did, but then this morning I woke up and I remembered something - I'm a bear! I can kill you, maul you, rip your face off, and eat you, I won't even go to jail for it. So...yeah, I'm a bear, I can kill you. So, tell Cleveland the truth. Cause if you don't -ROOOOOOAARRRR!...(chuckles)Okay, byesies!
  • The boxing match between Cleveland and his dad, though it turns sad and awkward when halfway through, Freight Train has a heat attack.
  • In "Cleveland Junior's Cherry Bomb", there was a scene where Cleveland, upset by his son's pledge of virginity, asks his step-daughter's boyfriend Federline to get him laid. Federline takes Cleveland, Jr. to the mall and sends him after a group of easy-looking women. The boy tells them that they need to improve their self-image, which prompts Federline to slap him. Cleveland, Jr., of all people, grabs Federline by the collar and threatens him. Federline is visibly intimidated.
    Cleveland, Jr.: I may be a virgin, but you do that again and I'll kick your ass.
  • The time when the guys' wives all teamed up to beat Holt's abusive girlfriend. Double-points for Kendra (Lester's wife) body-slamming her.
  • This show actually doing a good job of depicting homosexuality and "coming out" in "Terry Unmarried." A reviewer for the gay-interest website AfterElton.com praised the gay storyline, calling it "...a vast improvement over other LGBT portrayals in Seth MacFarlane's other series and more mature than the typical 'coming out' episode that many series have included dating back to the 1970s." Quite a feat, considering how much criticism Seth MacFarlane has gotten for depicting gays as stereotypes on Family Guy (not so much American Dad!), as seen with Brian's cousin Jasper and in such episodes as "You May Now Kiss The...Uh, Guy Who Receives," "Family Gay," and "Quagmire's Dad" (which was actually more offensive to transsexuals and transsexuality than homosexuality).
  • Freight Train, Rallo, and Cleveland, Jr. solving the mystery behind Lydia Waterman's death in "Who Done Did It?"
  • Cleveland standing up to Freight Train by drinking one of his cans of RC Cola right in front of him. Then when it looks like Freight Train and Holt, Lester, and Tim's fathers are about to beat their sons, Freight Train honors Cleveland for standing up to him by giving him his belt.
