Funny: FoxTrot
  • This strip:
    Jason: HI DAD! HOW WAS WORK?!
    Roger: Jason, shhh.
    Jason: WHAT'S THAT BEHIND YOUR BACK?!
    Roger: Son, please keep your voice down.
    Jason: SAY, ISN'T THAT ONE OF THOSE EXPENSIVE GOLF CLUBS THAT MOM TOLD YOU NOT TO—
    (scene change)
    Jason: Ah, there's nothing like the smell of a crisp $10 bill.
    Peter: Where do you get all this money?!
  • One that takes a little bit to figure out, but that makes it all the better:
    (Paige is eating lunch with Nicole)
    Paige: (takes a bite out of her sandwich) EWW!
    (Andy is at home with a friend)
    Andy: I'm not kidding — he wanted peanut butter and mayonnaise.
    (Jason is eating lunch with Marcus)
    Jason: …So then I switched bags…
  • This strip. You may need to be fluent in textspeak and good at algebra, though.
  • A wonderful Shout-Out to Pearls Before Swine and its affinity for puns.
  • In one strip, Andy and Roger are listening to a CD of ambient nature sounds. At one point in the CD, they both hear "Get away from that equipmen—" followed by bears growling and the sound of tearing flesh.
    Andy: (reading CD label) "In the Midst of Grizzlies".
    Roger: That was the last in the series.
  • In one strip, the kids are going on about the root BEER they're drinking, and how they're so thirsty they might have two root BEERs. Cue Roger in the fourth panel, asking Andy to remind him never again to tell the kids what he's giving up for Lent.
  • The Sunday before Thanksgiving 2009 had Jason suggesting that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade could get higher TV ratings if they did their own version of the "Balloon Boy" hoax that had taken place a few weeks prior, using the giant Kermit the Frog balloon.
  • The comic where Roger drinks the answering machine thinking it's the coffee pot. You don't even need to see it happening.
  • Andy, dressed up and ready to go to Lalapalooza with Paige.
  • This one:
    Roger: Well, Peter, I'm off to WORK...
    Peter: That's nice.
    Roger: Yessirree, I'm off to my JOB...
    Peter: Mm-hmm.
    Roger: Just as I'll do every day this SUMMER...
    Peter: Uh huh.
    Roger: (rolls eyes) So much for subtlety.
    Andy: Well, Roger, I'm off to RINSE OUT YOUR CEREAL BOWL...
  • The 2012 April Fools Day installment.
    Andy: Roger, Why is our son looking for a pitchfork?
  • Near the end of the Camp Bohrmore arc, Morton, who had acted like a Drill Sergeant Nasty all summer as counselor, finds out Jason is Paige's younger brother and deeply regrets how he'd been treating him. He laments that Jason is unlikely to set him up with her now that he resents him, but Jason suggests that until then, he was going to do it for revenge.
    • At the beginning of camp, the headmaster tells the campers, "We're very proud of our curriculum. In fact, we have a little saying: If you want more Bohr, attend Camp Bohrmore!" They all crack up.
    Headmaster: We've got a good crop this year.
    Morton: Oh, yeah.
  • Paige is working on her homework.
    Paige: I always forget, is it "I-E" or "E-I"? (shouts) Daddy, how do you spell "relief"?
    Roger: R-O-L-A-I-D-S.
    Paige: And I thought my spelling was bad.
  • On October 6th, 2013, Bill Amend missed his submission deadline and the newspaper ran a rerun strip. How did Amend apologize for this? With a comic explanation homaging The Oatmeal.
  • October 20, 2013: "Les Physz"
  • May 4, 2014: Star Wars day.
