  • The entire chase scene from "Francine's Flashback" with Stan trying to kill a raccoon like he did when they were young, only this time he's trying to do it deliberately instead of accidentally. The best part is that after Stan leaves the raccoon is revealed to have survived.
    • From earlier in the same episode, we have this scene with Stan:
    Stan: This midnight fishing is great!
    Bullock: Sounds to me that someone doesn't want to go home.
    Stan: Yeah, I'm laying low. Today is the anniversary of a huge fight me and Francine got into last year.

  • In "Brains, Brains, and Automobiles" Francine trying to teach Roger (who's playing Colton Lansington, a renegade space cop who struggles to keep his bipolar disorder in check).

  • In "Wife Insurance" Stan and his partner Jim get held captive in Columbia. Jim manages to get them out of their cell by romancing the female guard, just by singing some lyrics from "I Need To Know" by Marc Anthony, gyrating his body, and giving her a certain look. The guard moans in utter ecstasy and frees the two. As they escape, they run into another female guard, Jim does the same thing, and he starts having sex with her in the guard tower. The first guard is standing outside with Stan, barely able to contain herself and fidgeting like she has to pee before Stan tells her to "just go".
    • Heck, the entire episode counts. The pre-mission checklist, Wheels and the Legman (banana a dink a dink!), Francine with the Flag Cleaner, then Bullock, then Father Carrington, Jim porking his way through 200 miles of jungle, Stan's backup wife Meg, Barry being interrogated by Roger and Steve using the Bad Cop/Bad Cop method, Jim doing a handstand with a screen-blur (which was only in the FOX and Adult Swim version. The DVD version doesn't blur out the bulge in Jim's Speedos), Reggie the CIA Koala, Klaus facing the Scales of Lady Justice, Stan breaking up with Meg, Reggie again, Lady Caroline Lawson and Alejandro Rojas, the ending fight. On their darkest day they are Scooby-Doo... maybe Quincy.

The explosion then launches the theme park mascot in a bullet suit that shot Stan in a previous episode into the sky.
      • Later on he lands and pierces Stan's Satanist friend in the chest, killing him. A circle of fire them appears and drags them both into Hell.
    • When Steve and Roger (as Wheels and the Legman) are driving, Roger becomes strung out on Turkish amphetamines that he dropped into his eye earlier and soon enough becomes high as a kite and goes on a cheese puff binge. When Steve tries to talk to Roger he assumes he is calling him "Legs" because he broke his legs and asks him "What did you do to my legs, you Nazi walrus bastard?!" and appropriately sees him as just that, and also sees Klaus as Garfield and they're driving across an alien landscape.
    Garfield!Klaus: Steve, who is he talking to?
    Roger: Shut up, Garfield. Why...wh...why do you... Why do you hate Mondays? You dont even work!

    Stan: Francine, good news! The neighbors no longer hate me... because they're no longer our neighbors!

Ordinarily, that'd have racist implications, but I've done something far worse this time.
  • There's the dramatic car chase to Cilantro's El Perro song, and Stan emptying an entire bottle of horseradish on his steak in "Roy Rogers McFreely". Topped later in the episode when Roger rips off his Paper-Thin Disguise and goes "It was me, Roger, the whole time."
  • This little exchange from "It's Good to Be the Queen":
    Roger: Hey, with this mortar launcher, we can get back at the kid who went all Tom Sizemore on your eye.

    Roger: Yes, let's leave that plan between you, me, and the string of therapists who won't be able to help you.

  • From the hurricane episode there's Stan's increasingly moronic attempts to protect the family, including getting a bear to kill a shark after the house floods, which backfires when they start working together to kill the Smiths ("They're brothers in arms", as Steve puts it), trying to electrocute them using two cables and electrifying Roger instead, then trying to harpoon the shark and harpooning Francine's right shoulder instead.
    • The high point comes when Stan harpoons Francine. The freaking bear stops trying to kill the Smiths, and shakes his head at Stan, giving a look that just screams "Dude, really?"
    • When the house initially floods and Stan, Hayley, and Jeff are trapped in the attic, Klaus swears everyone off and jumps out of his fish bowl to take advantage of the flood.

    Roger: (gasp) I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. (flashback to Christmas Eve, Stan is comforting his crying mother. Roger crashes in through the window on a rope, holding a bottle of booze and knocking the Christmas tree over.) TACOS! (beat) Who's crying? (falls asleep, snoring)

  • In the episode "Shallow Vows", Roger is masquerading as a wedding planner named Jeanie Golde. Later on, he delivers this line:
    Roger: Stan, remember the first rule of any wedding is that the bride is always beautiful. The second rule you can read on my website. You have to be eighteen to log on. I have some sexy barnyard stuff on there that is NOT for everyone; I could get in a lot of trouble. If you do decide to check it out, you need to clear your history right away.

  • When Roger fires Stan from his recently-made dream restaurant and Stan opens a new restaurant that gets more customers than Roger's, Roger tries to make Stan look bad by bringing a salad into his place and claiming there's a dead bug in it.

Roger does so, cutting up his mouth in the process, and promptly collapses from blood loss.

    Stan: I never gave you my belt.

The giant actually does call and tells Stan it was a false alarm.

The funny comes in when you wonder how Stan knows someone like that and why he would possibly be calling him for his shirt.

Hey, Dick, do those pills make you hallucinate your wife? Damn! Do they let you go back in time to change the past? Damn! Do they make you fly? Really, but only once?
