Funny: Degrassi
  • When Holly J complains to Spinner about her father losing his money, he starts to list all of the horrible things he's been through ending with. "Do you have ball cancer? I did. And if I can get through all that, you can get through this." Can double as a Heartwarming Moment, as its the first time Holly J opens up to someone and they listen. Making it one of the first times Holly J is treated as human by someone else.
  • "I could do us up some fake IDs. Take you ladies on a pub crawl!"
  • Lost in Degrassi.
  • In one episode, several characters are at a movie theater, conversing during the trailers before the film starts; if you drown out what the characters are saying, you can hear one trailer start off as "...In a World where Men are Men and Women are Women, One Eunuch holds the key to saving the earth..."
    • In the opening of season 4 they're in a drive-in seeing a movie that appears to be about a woman in a Mexican wrestling mask wielding a whip fighting zombies. Canada has some awesome super heroes apparently.
  • J.T.'s "Supah Fly Fries" commercial. Paws of my fries, dawg!
  • When Anya and Holly J are at the outdoor Pizza restaurant, Anya knows that her crush, Dr. Dorian, is going to be there. When he arrives, Anya asks Holly J to pretend to choke for her, that way she can ask if there is a doctor there, hopefully getting Dr. Dorian to come over and "rescue" Holly J. Since Is There a Doctor in the House? is now pretty much a Discredited Trope and is now usually subverted in the way Anya plans, nothing really seems out of the ordinary; just your usual Degrassi romance hooplah. That is until the show decides to subvert an already subverted discredited trope by having there already be a doctor right behind them when Anya asks if there is a doctor there. Anya gives a befuddled look, and then loudly whispers "SIT!" to the other doctor so Dr. Dorian will be the one to come over.
  • Ellie drunkenly calling Caitlin Ryan a slut... during a live interview, no less.
  • After Riley consults a man on how to "cure" his homosexuality, he tells Fiona about it at school. Fiona responds negatively, and says something along the lines of "Riley, you can't cure being gay" to which Riley in turn Narm-a-rifically SHOUTS back with "TOO BAD YOU CAN'T CURE BITCH!"
    • Or in the same episode when Ms. Hassafrass tells him about the LGBT club, to which he replies, "What is that, a sandwich or something?"
  • Jane and Mia's (and Holly J, after she arrives) conversation in the library during "The Curse of Degrassi" special.
  • Holly J's rap during the mini 'If Jay can't be happy.'
  • The look on Anya's face when she says that Holly J may be her only straight friend.
  • Jake demonstrating how much he can eat. After shoveling a plate of food down, Clare's mother offers more:
    Mrs. Edwards: Dark or white meat?
    Jake: Both, please!
    • And not ten minutes later, he's downing some of Dave's nachos, prompting Clare to ask, "How are you still hungry?!"
  • "Are you high?" "Yes ma'am. Very!"
  • Alli's card to Dave: "Pwease fowgive me? Come to my house later for a suwpwise! PS: not sex."
  • Eli and Fiona. The Locker Roll Scene. You know it. Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment for their friendship, as well as being unbelievably Adorkable.
  • When Jake and Clare find out Glen and Helen are dating. Their reactions are priceless.
  • "More bread?"
  • What do you get when you combine a slow chat system, txt spk, a young sarcastic actor, and a Fan Dumb that is Sarcasm-Blind? This.
  • Bianca taunting her terrified friends up at Jake's cabin:*
    "The killer wants a virgin! Katie, Clare, sacrifice yourselves!"
  • Adam's commenting on his mom taking Bianca under her wing and her reaction:
    Adam: Aw, look at that mom. You finally got the daughter you always wanted.
    Mrs. Torres: *unamused* So not funny.
    Adam: Actually, I think it is.
    Mrs. Torres: Okay, let's go for dessert. Adam's treat!
    Adam: Uh, wait, I don't actually have enough money!
  • Manny's reaction to Holly J being Heather Sinclair's sister
    Manny: Holly J Sinclair? As in Heather Sinclair?
    Holly J: She's my sister
    Holly J: *proudly* Taught me everything she knows *drops a brownie in Mia's soup*
  • The mini episode Queen Bee, where Paige and Holly J compete for who's the biggest Alpha Bitch. Culminates in Holly J revealing Heather Sinclair is her sister. Paige turns around, shocked, cue Oh, Crap reaction from Marco and Ellie
    Paige: She's the devil's spawn!
  • A hippie store clerk who Drew just saved from being robbed is fawning over him. Bianca will have none of it.
    "Beat it, hipster!"
    • Shortly after this, Bianca and Drew are having a tender moment; said hipster watches, before finally whispering, "Kiss!"
  • "Jake doesn't hear me cause I'm not a tomato, and Alli and Clare, where the heck did they go?"
  • #StuffClareSays
  • So much to do with Eli's self-medicating to cope with...recent events. Specifically Mo and Jake's reaction to him being carried in the paint party, and his streaking the school and running straight into the principal - literally - with Simpson's now-I've-seen-it-all expression the frosting on the cake.
  • Season Two episode's, "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", with the dance contest that has Jimmy and Spinner competing against one another. Being an 80s-theme party, while Spinner decides to dress in sweats and breakdance, who does Jimmy decide to dress as? Michael Jackson, complete with the Thriller jacket, tight black pants, the single glove and a bad jheri curl wig. Even better, the composer of the episode decided to play a MJ-inspired instrumental during his strut down the hall, complete with his signature "Hoo!". Both boys end up sabotaging each other and when Jimmy stole Spinner's music forcing him to dance to ballroom music, Spinner stole Jimmy's dance clothes, which forced him to dance in his MJ outfit, causing his pants to split. In front of a huge, laughing crowd.
  • How about Hazel's bad singing from "Shout, part 2"? To say she sounded like a goat with a cold would be an insult to the goat (and also quite ironic, as Andrea Lewis has a beautiful singing voice and has recorded a few albums in real life.)
