Awesome / The George Lopez Show

  • When Carmen finds out that her boyfriend Jason was cheating on her for a month, she calls him over to take his stuff back, then when he comes over, Carmen walks in carrying his stuff and wearing a VERY revealing outfit, she then tells him not to bother calling her, throws his stuff outside and tells him that he can go to hell.
    Carmen: I just want to let you know, if it doesn't work out with Cindy, and you want to call me ....don't. Now that you know what you're losing, go to hell!
  • George punching out his dad for badmouthing Benny.
  • One of Benny's coworkers makes a joke about her relationship with Randy, so she kicks him in the crotch and pours her beer on his head.
    Bob: What are you gonna do? Grab a stepstool and pour that beer over my head?
    Benny: No... You're gonna come down here.
  • When Veronica flirts with George's boss to make his life hard for him until she gets her inheritance, and George manages to turn it around on her, this one quote sums it up well.
    George: I can handle all the work Mel gives me, but you can only tease him for so long.
  • Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny, but there is the time George zinged Benny's mom once she was out of earshot during the episode where we get to see how much of a monster she is.
    George: Damn! I think some flowers died as she walked past.
  • Angie has an absolutely perfect one after Benny makes a crack about her. Benny, having gonorrhea, gets this response:
    Angie: *wiping tears* That hurts, Benny. But it doesn't burn.
    • And the minute a horrified Benny turns her back, Angie does a victory pose.
  • And speaking of Benny pwning, we have this exchange:
    Benny: Did you think of that last night when you were spooning with Ernie?
    George: Look, that was an accident! (Benny gets a Flat "What." look on her face) But at least I can keep a man in my bed! (Benny looks enraged) Yeah! When Ernie gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, he comes back!
  • George hallucinates what his life would be like if Benny was a loving mother. Once he wakes up, he ends up back at the house talking to Angie about how it made him a better person and says something like this;
    George: I could be the kind of person who'd just let her break my golf clubs, but instead I'm the kind of person that goes into her car and takes this. *Pulls out a steering wheel while sporting a huge grin
    • He then reveals that Benny is getting her trip to Reno and will get her steering wheel back once she replaces his clubs. When Benny asks how she is supposed to do that with no car George brings up an instance where he was injured as a kid and repeats her words about it to her: "Not My Problem!"
    • The whole incident that started the episode winds up being one for Benny, shockingly. A work contest has a trip to Reno as a prize and Benny is certain she is going to win only for George to announce Gina as the winner. Benny angrily confronts George, who implies that he rigged the contest so she would lose, and threatens him only for George to balk that "there's nothing you can do to hurt me now". Cue broken golf clubs.
  • George gets one even earlier in "Curious George". After discovering that Carmen is alone with a boy in her room, George talks to the boy alone and makes a point of saying that he's always watching, scaring the hell out of the kid. When George leaves the room and the kid collapses on the bed, George yells for him to get off the bed. Cue the boy jumping up, completely freaked out, and frantically looking around the room.
  • George burning the check he was going to give to the school for a field trip after the obnoxious teacher refuses to admit the field trip wasn't a necessity.
    • Nobody NEEDS to see a space shuttle launch!!!!
  • Benny bashing in Zack Powers' skull with a wrench. It happens offscreen, but you can hear the little twerp screaming and Benny rushing in excitedly with a wrench in her hand. Don't deny it, Zack totally deserved it.
  • An awesome moment for George. He and Angie go off to his sister-in-law's funeral where he has to endure his Obnoxious In-Laws who still see him as a cholo, and goes off to eat hors-d'oeuvres. Then we see Claudia's video will, where we see who will be chosen as Veroncia's trustee.
    Claudia: Will Victor Palmero please step forward.
    [Vic steps forward]
    Claudia: Good. Now bend over and kiss George Lopez's ass, because I choose him.
    (everyone turns around and looks at George in shock)
    • Made even funnier by George's immediate reaction.
      George: Yes! You heard her, Vic! KISS IT!
    • It is even more awesome when you realize that Claudia considered George to be a better role model than her father-in-law or any of her other in-laws.
      • Claudia even has a small smirk on her face, knowing everyone in attendance will be wanting her money. Not only did she leave everything to her daughter, but she left the keys to it to the one man everyone in the family makes fun of and not just out of spite either, but she recognize George's hard work is something to be respected. She knows she got them good.
  • When Veronica's Con Artist Disappeared Dad, Ray, returns after she gets her inheritance he convinces everyone that he has changed his ways. George is the only hold out until he comes up with an apparently legitimate business proposal that he wants Veronica to work with him on. All seems right until Ray tries sneaking out at night only to be confronted by George, who reveals that he wasn't fooled and cancelled the check and just to be extra certain signed it with a fake name. George then delivers a "Reason You Suck" Speech to Ray and tells him to Get Out of Veronica's life while making him come up with a plausible reason so she doesn't get her heart broken.
    • Angie gets one just after Ray does as George asks. She reveals that George told her everything and tries to choke him with his tie. Ray jokes that a lot of woman have tried to strangle so Angie has to try harder, which results in an "Oh really" look on her face and Ray declaring "that's better".
  • George is in fine Papa Wolf form when Veronica moves back into the house and brings with her an emotionally unstable boyfriend. He slams the door in the man's face when he divorces his wife to be with Veronica, turns on the sprinklers when he's crying in the backyard over their breakup once even Angie decides he's beyond help, delivers a Groin Attack with a golf club to a giant stuffed bunny on the off chance it's the guy in a bunny suit, and when he breaks into the house to see Veronica George straight punches the guy in the face and has an offscreen fight before the cops arrive that is implied to have been very one-sided in George's favor. The line from Veronica's previous appearance sums it up pretty well:
    George: As long you're in this house you're under my wing.
    • After the fight, where George's new plasma screen TV got destroyed, he denies Angie the I Told You So that Veronica deserves so he can deliver and forces her to hand over a diamond bracelet from the stalker so he can replace it.
  • In "Meet the Cuban Parents" George and Angie both calling out Vic for being unappreciative towards George.
  • Carmen gets an Offscreen Moment of Awesome in "Girl Fight" when she punches out Piper for calling her a slut, George and Benny are both proud of her being a "scrapper".
    • George also gets one for intimidating Adam into admitting he was the one who started the rumor about Carmen.
    • In the same episode, Angie gets one after the fight. Having spent the whole episode planning to write a strongly worded letter to the school over what Carmen's going through, she immediately decides to go take direct action after finding out about the fight.
    Angie: Okay, this bully has a history with you, but he has never messed with me before c'mon!
    George: You're not going back to the website, are you?
    Angie: To HELL with the website! When my baby's hurt, I go medieval!
  • In "Trick or Treat me Right", Benny refuses to stop demeaning George, so he handcuffs her to the fridge and gives her an epic The Reason You Suck speech.
  • In one episode, Benny mentions how she got kidnapped by a trucker as a teenager and managed to escape by beating the guy unconscious with a thermos(hitting him 47 times).
