Funny / Good Eats

  • Season One, Episode Three has a moment during a sketch of Alton sneaking into a diner kitchen to teach the audience how to properly fry eggs over-easy when he is accosted by the actual chef of the diner telling him to get out (the first in a series-long set of running gags). The chef's redneck accent and missing teeth are funny enough, but what sends the sketch over the edge is where Alton tries to demonstrate the difference between a raw and hard-boiled egg, the chef grabs the raw egg and crushes it in his hand, sending yolk and albumen all over the both of them. AB's flinch sends everyone behind the camera audibly laughing and the chef's actor corpsing as Alton calmly walks off set.
  • The pocket pie episode has Alton explaining the history of cornish pasties, quoting a bit of folklore claiming the devil wouldn't go to cornwall for fear he'd get baked into a pastie. The devil appears and denies this, only to get chased off screen and beaten up by a pair of cornish housewives.
    • The Stinger of the same episode is an outtake where an object is supposed to fall on a person sitting next to Alton but fails to do so. Alton then goes on to briefly explain the importance of timing in comedy.
  • One word TEMPURA!
  • In "Roll Call" Alton replaces his usual more lively yeast puppets with "more realistic" ones. They consists of stuffed socks that sit there, leading to Alton's frustration.
  • The opening segment on the episode on tea has Brown attending a little girl's tea party. She reports that the teddy bear called him "goofy."
  • In "Dill-icious", Alton goes all Mad Scientist and demonstrates the old "pickle lamp" science experiment. The lamp lights up...then Itchy & Twitchy cut the juice and hand AB a Don't Try This at Home statement.
    Alton: Lights! Power! PICKLE! Ahahahahaha—Hey, that's my experiment!
  • In "Tricks for Treats" Alton makes some peanut brittle, then wonders how many bites it'll take to get to the center. He then does the same thing as Mr. Owl from the Tootsie Pop commercial and takes "three" bites.
  • In the punch episode, Alton is at a dry wedding at some church hall, where the "punch" consists of ginger ale and sherbet. While he's talking, a little old lady comes in and spikes the punch, and begins handing out cups of it to everyone.
  • The episode, "Give Peas A Chance", which spoofs The Exorcist....complete with the Good Eats theme done in the style of Tubular Bells as incidental music.
  • From the Oat Cuisine (the First one) episode: Alton Brown (in a goofy fantasy sequence with a bumbling assistant) shows us how to make haggis (which contains oats as one ingredient). Both guys are outdoors depicting themselves as bargain-basement Braveheart clones in a silly wigs and kilts. Alton speaks with an over-the-top fake Scottish accent. It's all pretty silly.
