Funny: Better Off Dead
  • The Running Gag turned Memetic Mutation:
    "I WANT MY TWO DOLLARS!"
  • The trenchant social commentary provided when Lane is found enduring the horror of being in the garbage truck:
    "Now that's a real shame when folks be throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that."
  • "I'm real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky."
  • "It's got raisins in it. You like raisins."
    • Unfortunately the food didn't like to get poked at with a fork.
  • The skiing instructions everyone gives Lane in order to beat the K-12.
  • Practically everything Curtis Armstrong as Charles de Mar says and does:
    • "Lane, I've been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I'm no dummy!"
    • "I think I just froze the left half of my brain! Look! (Waves arm around stiffly) I can't move my right arm!"
    • When Stalin offers a rather lame insult to Lane and Charles, Charles bursts into laughter. Like, a lot of laughter. So much laughter that Stalin eventually walks away in disgust, only for Charles to later interrupt Stalin's romantic dance with Beth because he's still gut-laughing.
