  • In a bid to figure out Super Cow's identity, Red Guy opens a dry cleaners for superheroes. Almost immediately he is besieged by a mob of costumed crusaders.
    Red Guy: (Holding up one costume) Corn Cob Man? There's a lot of sick people in this town. See here
    • That last statement counts as Hypocritical Humor because he usaully tries to scam & harm the main duo & because the pilot episode portrayed him as Satan.
    • When Chicken pretends to be Super Cow and tries to speak Spanish, but not very well. "¿Donde esta el baño? — "Where is the bathroom?"

  • In one episode, Flem and Earl forget that they're taking a bath together, and ask Flem's dad how they forgot where they were. He doesn't know. The Red Guy then shows up dressed as a doctor and directly addresses the audience with an explanation.
    The Red Guy: Of course Flem's dad couldn't explain what had happened, because HE'S AN IDIOT! Oh just look at those shorts.
    • And after he explains it, he himself forgets who he is, and flies through the wall and into the sunset thinking that he is Amelia Earhart
  • Red reading a fairy tale from a cookbook in "Goin' My Way":
    "And then, the Three Little Bacon Steaks were put in the oven and baked at 350, smothered in chocolate! The end.
  • In "The Legend of Sailcat" (which is weird even by their standards) they have one bit where Flem's dad sings that "when someone's depressed or has had a bad day (Sailcat) can always drop in with the right thing to say". What does Sailcat say to the bawling Cow? " Don't be depressed Cow, people like you because you're big and fat and ugly. Go with it!"
  • From "Comet!": "PLEASE, walk this way." (Red bounces on his butt and everyone except Chicken does the same)
    • Red freaking out from the comet (actually Chicken pranking him with a golf ball).
      Make up your mind, comet!
    • "Oh grandma. WE'RE ALL DEAD MEAT!"
  • From the episode where Cow accidentally swallows Chicken, they take her to "Dr. Heiney". He proceeds to do a series of random tests before taking a "milk sample" from Cow.
    Dad: Uh, doctor what is the point of this experiment?
    Dr. Heiney: Well, I'm thirsty, and your daughter's a cow. DO THE MATH!
  • Red's epic breakdown in "I Scream, Man", and then ending up in a mental clinic for it.
    Red: AAAAAHHHH!!!!! I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!! I don't have any ice cream! Not one, so! EVER! (Hangs near the side of the cop, then switches to a calm, quiet voice) I don't even like ice cream, (switches back to Large Ham mode) OR KIDS! It says "Eye Screem" on my truck, not "Ice Cream"!

  • From "The Great Pantzini," Red (as The Great Pantzini) making Mike the micro-trunked elephant cry by bringing up the time he crushed the Chinese acrobats (now referred to as, "The Chinese Pancakes.") and Red trying to convince Chicken that a weenie dog is his one-trick pony.
  • "You don't think? What are you, communists?"
  • All of "Who's Afraid of the Dark?", especially Dr. Laxslax, who's scared of everything.
    • And it all culminates in Mom and Dad deciding to adopt Dr. Laxslax on the spot even though he's a grown man.
  • After the "Buffalo Galls" break into the duo's house & starts eating their carpet.
    Dad(jumping onto Mom in fear): Don't let em get me! Don't Let em get me!
