For Alvin and the Chipmunks/The Chipmunks:

  • One episode has Alvin suing Brittany on a parody of The Peoples Court. The best gag is how Alvin proved Brittany was faking her injuries.
    Alvin: Hey look, it's Don Johnson!
    (Brittany leaps out of her wheelchair & excitedly hops up & down)
    Brittany: Where? Where?
    Alvin: A-ha! See your honor, she was faking! note 
  • Earlier in the episode, as Alvin suddenly limps towards the courthouse.
    Simon: What's with the limp?
    Alvin: Just a liiiiittle insurance.
    Simon: What happened to "truth, justice, and the American way"?
    Alvin: This is the American way.
  • In one episode where Alvin was learning to ski, but ignoring Simon's instructions, he ends up tumbling down and creating a giant snowball, which is heading toward Simon and Theodore:
    (Theodore runs around in a panic)
    Simon: (just stands there) Why can't he just listen for once?
  • The Running Gag with T-shirts the episode where Alvin and Simon help Theodore on his history test. The first is when Columbus (Alvin) arrived. Later the pilgrims came and offered T-shirts to the two indians already wearing the shirts Columbus gave them.
    "More T-shirts?"
    • Then in Custard's Last Stand.
    Alvin as Custard: How about some T-shirts, chief?
    Simon as Sitting Bull: No more stupid T-shirts!
    Alvin as Custard: Okay. Then how about some party favors? Whoopie Cushions?
    Simon as Sitting Bull: Let's charge him!
    Alvin as Custard: No problem. I take credit cards.
    Simon as Sitting Bull: No! We charge you!
  • From the episode "Snow Wrong":
    Brittany: Nobody, but nobody calls my sister a jerk!!!

    Host: Alvin, what is syntax?
    Alvin: Syntax...A tax the church collects from sinners?
  • From "The Gang's All Here," Jeanette falls down while roller skating, bringing Brittany down with her.
    Jeanette: Sorry, Brittany. I tell my feet where to go, but they just don't listen to me.
