Funny: Jesse Cox
    open/close all folders 

Let's Plays

     Amnesia: The Dark Descent 
  • At the end of episode 7, Jesse hits The Water Part. The Co-Dependent girls (who have played the game and know what's coming) egg him on until he steps into the water, at which point everything dissolves into a confusion of giggling, Angrish and the splashes of oncoming doom. "Keep Out Of The Water..."
  • In episode 22, Jesse somehow manages to fake out a monster in the funniest way possible.

     Saints Row The Third 
  • Saints Row: The Third Let's Play, part 13. Jesse & Crendor get the Bear... for about fifteen seconds...
  • In one of the missions, they are protecting some people while hanging on a helicopter. They are naturally happy that their driver is Big Purp but when they fail due to their incompetence. They see that Big Purp has been replaced, causing Crendor to rage, put the controller down, and walk away.
  • A fanmade video: In Memory of Panda Car
  • Jesse's Sad Panda voice.
  • The ending of the Episode 36 during the Livestream is this. Jesse is just trying to get his pizza, with Crendor trying to protect his body. Its hilarious.
  • In Part 11, Crendor asks "can we get planes?" They find out that they can. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Throughout the entire series, both Jesse and Crendor mistake random people for Hitler. Crendor inparticular will go out of his way to kill Hitler, even if it fails the mission.

     Magicka 
  • Jesse plays a round of Magicka for a special Fourth of July livestream. Jesse plays a game with Friendly Fire. With three other people. They let him have a gun. FOR AMERICA!

     Terraria 
  • In episode 24 of the Terraria Let's Play, Jesse throws a bomb in a small space where both he and TotalBiscuit are trapped. TotalBiscuit lives.
    • Made even funnier due to the fact that they can't kill each other unless they change teams, but they don't even realize it yet.
  • In one episode, Jesse acquired a top hat that TotalBiscuit wanted. Bad stuff occurred.
    • This was after TotalBiscuit had killed the high-health top-hat wearing zombie. He and Jesse were killed and when they respawned, TotalBiscuit was complaining and Jesse was agreeing, all the while with Jesse wearing the Top Hat and carrying a torch. TotalBiscuit's response when he noticed was:
  • In another episode, a glitch had occurred and the previous episode was lost. Lets just say that many a Brick Joke happened.
    Jesse: AND FOR 14.99 you too can know what happened in that fateful episode.
  • The secrets of Castle von Jessenstein v 1.0 were truly valuable.
  • Where Jesse tried to trick TotalBiscuit with dynamite by claiming it was what was in a chest. Once again, he lives, and Jesse has killed himself with explosives yet again.
  • A fan put together a montage of the many, many, many deaths of Jesse and TB during the first Terraria series.

     Terraria - The Next World Generation 
  • Episode 10 of Terraria: The Next World Generation has Jesse devolving into Angrish after TB shows that the fruits of their labor in the jungle (where he was constantly dying) happened to be 2 statues that don't do anything.
    • What makes this even funnier is that TB is laughing so hard that he—in his words here—can't breathe properly.
    • It was also this episode that the Great Space Butterfly first came into being.
  • From Episode 30: "Fujimora Yachtsu", a pun so incredibly lame it left TotalBiscuit in physical pain.
    • Alternative names were LoLboat One, and Frankenboat Joe.
  • In Episode 34, TB and Jesse's death counts have been equal, until one point. At one point, while TB is putting items away, Jesse sneaks up to a sky island and aggros a Wyvern so it will kill TB. It worked... to some extent.
  • For a considerable number of episodes near the end (so far) of the series, TB and Jesse repeatedly tried to reach the Underground Jungle - which was being overrun by the Hardmode Corruption - to harvest Moonglow for potions, and repeatedly died, often when nearly in sight of the jungle (or even in the surface portion of it). Finally Moonglow was acquired, and they returned to home base...only to discover that there had been five Moonglow in one of their chests the entire time.
    Jesse: YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!
  • When making the hellivator, Jesse and TB were mining through some obsidian, with lava on three sides and water on top. They mined faster than the obsidian could be created, making them both fall down into the lava and die. Even worse is that one of their tombstones ended up under their shaft, causing more lava-related deaths because obsidian couldn't form over the tombstone.
  • The same fan that made the video of the Terraria deaths for the first season made another one for this season.

     The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 
  • Anytime he goes into a vocal rendition, such as saying "Diabeetus" when he sees a Horker.
  • Look, I'm a novice, here...
  • The entirety of Episode 36, with Jesse's constant confused/scared reaction during the Sheogorath quest, and his frustration with the puzzles.
  • In Episode 48, while Jesse is 'sneaking' in the Thalmor Embassy, when he is in the courtyard he is ambushed by a dragon! Not only that but soon not one but two more dragons appear as well, distracting the Thalmor
    Jesse: (Hears roar) Wait, was that a dragon?!
    (Gets bathed in flames)
    • Earlier while he was headed for the Embassy, a dragon attacked him, while he was naked no less. Understandably he died almost instantly. On his second time he equipped as much armor he could (only some gauntlets) and charged the dragon... only for the dragon to One-Hit Kill him. The third time, after deciding to suit up at the nearby town, the dragon doesn't appear at all.
    • Even funnier, that dragon might have been one of the dragons that attacked the embassy.
  • The song at the end of Episode 55.
  • At the end of Episode 64 Jesse encounters a boss Draugr, which leads to this
    Jesse: Come at me bro! Come at me!
    Draugr: Fus Ro Dah!
    *Jesse gets Blown Across the Room, and dies*
    Jeese: Oh shit! Well he came at me.
  • In episode 67 and 68, Jesse does a quest that involves investigating a murder, and he makes good use of a certain Memetic Mutation.
  • An unfortunate friendly fire incident! Slowed down if you didn't quite catch it here.

     Fahrenheit 
  • In Part 13 he complains that he might have to worry about Carla's claustrophobia and while Carla is leaving the asylum...
    Jesse: "Well at least I don't have to do any claustrophobia anything."
    * Ligts go out*
    Jesse: "*Beat* SON OF A BITCH!!"
  • In the beginning of Part 15 when Jesse is trying to get past a couple of guards again.
    Jesse: "Focus Jesse. Focus with all of your focusing abilities."
    * immediately gets caught*
    Jesse: "God damn it..."
  • The Final Part. Jesse doesn't even make that many jokes in it, instead just reacting the how batshit insane the last part of the game is. And his final reaction to the endings. "WHY IS THERE NO ANSWERS!" indeed.
    "Fahrenheit is the fevered dream of a psychopath. It's a nonsensical, insane, ridiculous ride into the maw of madness. One cannot describe it, only experience it. And God help those who tread this path. 10/10, Game of the Year." - Jesse Cox

     Mc Pixel 
  • Just about anytime Jesse's response to a puzzle solution with "Well, that just happened..."
  • During the second Bonus Level set:
    I'm not sure how... womens' undergarments work.

     Dead Space 

     Dishonored 

     Far Cry 3 

     Dead Space 2 
  • During the puzzle where Isaac has to move some fuses around to shut down ANTI, he becomes convinced he has the puzzle down. Only to... well:
    Jesse: So, red is dead, and blue is in the goo!
    (Inserts first fuse, which turns blue.)
    Jesse: Blue! Nice. Okay, stick this down here...
    (Inserts second fuse. It turns green. Beat)
    Jesse: Wait, what? What the hell is green?! (bursts out laughing)
    • Even better, when he connects all the fuses so that they're green, he finds a secret room containing loot and Peng!
  • Best glitch ever. Gets even more hilarious towards the end of the video.

     Star Craft II: Heart of the Swarm 
  • Jesse makes fun of Mengsk's special elite squads towards the end of the campaign due to their ineffectiveness relative to their fearsome title, and then creates "Death Squad 7," which is a group comprised solely of Zerg Overlords—units which have absolutely no combat effectiveness or utility to speak of.

     Bio Shock Infinite 
  • The first part features Jesse rendered speechless—partly because he's blown away by the scenery, and partly because he has no idea what the hell is going on.
  • About the Lutece twins: "WHY DO I LOVE AND/OR HATE YOOOUUU?!"
  • After seeing Booker's dream about Columbia attacking New York and arriving in the Garden of New Eden, Jesse then finds the inscription "The Seed of the Prophet shall sit the throne and drown in flame the Mountains of Man."
    Jesse: Is that... Oooh, is that a prophecy of what I saw in my dream of the vision of the future in my office when I opened the door? I know that made no sense, what I just said...
  • Jesse's "old-timey" voice. Especially when he decides to sing while using it.
  • The incident at the raffle: first, Jesse is driven to hysterical giggling by Fink's casually racist comment about "the prettiest white girl in all of Columbia"; then he realizes that he's just won on number 77 after being warned not to... and then it turns out that he's won the first throw in the public stoning of a mixed-race couple. Cue incredulous shouts of "Wait what? What the shit... WHAT?! What is happening here?" Then Booker fights back by ramming a policeman's face into a skyhook, leading to an incredibly bloody fight scene, and all of a sudden, Jesse's laughing again.
    Jesse: "Uh, sirs, can we have a conversa—OH GOD, OKAY, NEVERMIND!"
  • Upon arriving in the Monument Island research center, Jesse finds an overturned chair with a shirt draped over it and a pair of shoes lying nearby; he immediately speculates that the previous owner was just so startled that his shoes and shirt blew off and he ran out of the building completely naked.
    Jesse: Future DLC.
  • In part 9, Jesse comes across a Kinetescope in the arcade after going through and seeing the Colored & Irish bathrooms compared to the White bathrooms.
    Jesse: What other horrific racist thing are we gonna fi—"Solving the Irish Problem", of course! Of course...
  • Upon encountering the animatronic, poem-reciting George Washington in the Hall of Heroes lobby, Jesse's computer suffered a critical error and crashed. Jesse could only speculate that it simply couldn't handle the awesomeness.
  • Part 13 has Jesse performing the single most violent mood swing imaginable. After listening to the somber, doomed message on one of Slate's audio-logs he delivers this thoughtful insight:
    Jesse: ... Interesting, I'm not sure where to put his character yet... (sees enemy soldier and blasts him in the back) But I know where to put this guy's character! ON THE GROUND!
    • Elizabeth's expression in response helps sell it.
    Jesse: "I'm comin' for ya, Slate - OH SHIT, HE'S COMIN' FOR ME! Beat Note to self, he has more guys..."
  • The first encounter with the Motorized Patriots.
    • "That is one pissed-off George Washington!"
    • "Come on, George! I cannot tell a lie, I'm going to shoot you in the e- ("George" charges his cover, minigun blazing) OH SHIT!"
    • "Mr Ple... President... You've been voted out of office."
    • "The only thing I got out of that was that I almost called George Washington "Mr Plesident." You know, because he's so happy, he's pleasident."
  • At Finkton Docks, Jesse runs into another Motorized Patriot, and is halfway through calling it George when he realizes that it's actually modelled on Ben Franklin.
  • While exploring the Shantytown, with its "keep your guns, we need food" sign, Jesse realizes he might be responsible for Columbia's food shortage.
  • "Wait, they've got minotaurs, now?!"
  • In yet another encounter with Motorized Patriots, Jesse finds himself fighting a Vox Populi-aligned version modeled after Abraham Lincoln. After taking a few potshots at it with his Hand Cannon - and laughing over the fact that he's trying to shoot Abraham Lincoln in the head - he realizes that Elizabeth can summon a Motorized Patriot of her own to fight it... but this one's modeled on George Washington. Cue massive squee attack as the two mechanized presidents square off. George Wins.
    Jesse: George Washington vs Abraham Lincoln! Goooooooo History!
  • His response to hearing the "Whispers Through The Walls" voxophone, which implies that the Lutece Twins are really just the same person, but from different dimensions.
    Jesse: HOOOOOOOOOOOOLD THE PHONE!
  • While he's about to board the gondola to Comstock House, Jesse takes the time to poke around before deciding that it probably isn't a boss area.
    Jesse: Is there a reason to be up here? Besides the fact that things look cool. Nope, I don't really see one... unless I'm about to get into a fight, but that seems unlikely, 'cause I've killed literally everyone... Alright, here we go-
    Songbird: SCREEEEEE!!
    Jesse: OH GODDAMMIT!

     Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon 
  • Jesse's constantly competing with Rex Power Colt's one-liners.
  • Jesse correctly predicts Rex's dialogue during a scene with Dr. Darling in Part 3, when Dr. Darling is offering an injection to make him as powerful as the Big Bad.
    Rex: No, Doc. No way. I swore an oath to a special lady.
    Jesse: Lady Liberty.
    Dr. Darling: Your... wife?
    Jesse: Say it.
    Rex: No, lady liberty
    Jesse: yea-ha-hahhh! America!
    Rex: She taught me that winners... don't use drugs.
    Jesse: Fuck yeah!
  • Jesse takes a quick, terror and rant-filled ride down a river in a jet ski in Part 9. It ends when he rides right into the mouth of a mutant crocodile.
  • Jesse's glee throughout the Battle Armored Dragon Assault Strike System portion of the finale.
    Battle Dragon: DO YOU LIKE RIDING ME?
    Jesse: I do, buddy!
  • "Can I 'F' this guy?"

     Kerbal Space Program w/ Myndflame 
  • The series is full of these. A large amount of the humor though comes from Clint (who is very experienced at the game) being a Deadpan Snarker to Jesse, who is practically new at the game.
  • In part 3, Jesse wants to send a Space Butterfly themed rocket to the moon. To which Clint has already prepared one but much to his objection, Jesse decides to make his own. The results of their first launch are expected.
    Clint: *mocking Jesse* "Or we could just build a Space Butterfly!"

     Dead Space 3 w/ Dodger 
  • You know a Let's Play is off to a good start when the first gunfight after the prologue ends with this:
    Unitologist: AAAAH! *BOOM*
    Dodger: What.
    Jesse: Bane just blew himself up on the top of my damn car!

     Cube World w/ Wowcrendor

  • Jesse and Crendor taking time to shoot all the terrorist's drinks.
  • Jesse and Crendor's reactions to the 50's sitcom-esq simulation.
  • Jesse getting control of the car, and immediately using it to run over Mario.
  • This comment:
    After seeing all these comments on the Saints Row videos, I would like to be the first to welcome you all to OMFGcata, where:
    Missions=Side Quests
    Messing Around=Main Story Line
  • Crendor merrily running everyone over while Jesse sings "Safety Dance".
  • Crendor keeps getting distracted, so Jesse eventually just gives up and drives off to do the missions himself.
  • The boys intentionally sprinting into oncoming traffic and getting flung around while first "What Is Love?" and then "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" plays.
    • The second time they try this activity, they end up getting gold rank. Jesse pulls off some insane combos. It is epic.
  • It took a couple episodes, but they finally found Hitler.
  • "America is definitely not a race."
  • There is a different rap at the end of each episode. In Episode 11, Crendor raps about how bad Jesse's rap was.
  • "HAN. SOLO. PISTOLS."
  • Episode 13, Jesse unknowingly makes a Star Wars reference at the same time the game does.
  • Episode 20: Pierce and the boss start singing "Say You're Just a Friend" off-key. Jesse and Crendor join in, also off key and out of time. The resulting cacophony has to be heard to be believed.
    • And then they start singing opera-style...
    • And after they finish, they apparently thought that Zinyak (the Big Bad) singing in the opera voice to troll, and the boss telling him to shut up, were each other.
      • Doubly funny as this scene by itself is funny enough, already.
  • A comment on Part 26: "I just realized that Jesse must feel the exact same in this series as TotalBiscuit feels in Terraria."
  • Pretty much the entirety of Part 27. Starting from Jesse's utter glee from the side-scroller beat 'em up that the mission consists of and just going on from there.
  • Episode 31: Crendor starts being really negative. Jesse is annoyed and snarky about it at first, but eventually he starts trying to cheer Crendor up by saying really sappy things.

     Outlast w/ Wowcrendor 
  • The first jump scare of the Coxtober season.
  • Jesse is way too Genre Savvy for this game, constantly yelling at the main character for not turning around and leaving at the first (or second or third) sign of danger.
  • Jesse and Crendor pretending that Chris Walker is that guy on the ghost hunter shows that keeps yelling "Come and fight me, ghosts!"
  • In part 3, Crendor reaches over and taps Jesse on the back freaking him out.
  • In Part 8, when Jesse successfully escapes from and kills Dr. Trager, both he and Crendor are Flipping the Bird at him.
  • Part 12: Jesse & Crendor's reactions to watching Hitler Ghost, a.k.a. Walrider, tear up Chris Walker, who they've spend the last couple episodes developing a special hatred for. Crendor starts clapping.
    Jesse: You can't applaud Hitler Ghost!
    Crendor: Why not?!
  • Jesse and Crendor confused and raging about the ending.
    Crendor: Even David Lynch would play this game and be like "What just happened at the end I don't understand."
    Jesse: *laughing* Well you see David: this game was like a river. A river of idea fish. And the creators caught those idea fish, but ate them before they had time to lay the, the brain seeds.

     Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death 
  • The Running Gag of Jesse singing "MARLOW BRIIIIIGGS!" whenever he opens a door, and then getting annoyed when there's no one on the other side of it to hear him doing it.
  • In episode 4, he ends up defeating a boss in 5 seconds when he accidentally knocks the guy off the platform.
  • In episode 9, he tries out the ice power up and winds up getting a 100 hit combo, this causes the mask to go into a massive rant about how awesome Marlow is, to the point he drowns out the plot.

     Tokyo Jungle 
  • During Part 3 when he starts playing the lost fawns searching for their mother.
    Jesse: I'm saying right now if I get there and the she's dead I'mma be pissed off at that Bambi shit. Oh, by the way, spoiler alert for Bambi...
    • Jesse compares sneaking past hyenas to Metal Gear then cracks up upon discovering the sequence invlves hiding under a box.
    • Jesse gets killed but the second deer, still being attacked by the hyena, is immune to harm (due to later needing to die in a cutscene).
      Jesse: Brother! If you were impervious to harm you should have led!
    • Jesse sees a velociraptor (after chanting "No monsters. No monsters")
      Jesse (while laughing): What?! Why is there a velociraptor?! This is un- this is even imposisble! It's not unbelievable. This is impossible! How am I supposed to- Oh my God!
  • Jesse encounters Kangaroos and rabbits, armed with boxing gloves.
    Jesse: Oh no, ohh no! They all got boxing gloves. Why do the rabbits have boxing gloves?! Who puts boxing gloves on rabbits?!
    • From the same episode, Jesse's inability to say Pteranodon. Followed immediately after by a lion club seeing a Pteranodon and running to its mother:
      Lion Cub: Mom Mom Mom Mom Mom Mom Mom! Guess what I saw! Guess what I saw!
      Lioness: Oh my God... Dear diary, please kill me.
  • Jesse's raging in part 10 as Act 11 of the story mode quickly turns into That One Level for him. At various points he devolves into Angrish and you can hear him throwing the controller down or banging on a desk in frustration, or breaking down as the game starts him far back.
    Jesse: Where's Scar? Where the fuck is that piece of shit? I am gonna kill him. I'm gonna personally murder his face right off.

     Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance 
  • Part 7 begins with Jesse explaining how some commenters told him that not every secret appears on AR. Meaning from then on, he'd be spending much, much more time scouring the levels for loot. He repeatedly insists that the viewers brought this on themselves.
  • Jesse's freak-out during part 15 during the boss rush before Sundowner.
    Jesse: *Having just destroyed Mistral's body double* Well that shit just occurred and it was kinda freakin' awesome! Also? Her robot body? Still pretty sexy, just sayin'.
    *Beat then Monsoon's body double ambushes Jesse and begins ripping him apart.*
    Jesse: OH MY—WHAT!? *Laughing* Oh COME ON!
    Boris: And a spare Monsoon? Well, if it's AI-controlled it should pose no problem for you, yes?
    Jesse: Oh my god, what are you talking about!? This is a problem for me!
    *Monsoon beats the tar out of Jesse more*
    Jesse: *Disbelieving laugh* Oh my god...Yep, this is a problem for me.

     South Park: The Stick of Truth 
  • Episode 1: Jesse's overdramatic opening narration.
  • The Running Gag of him going in every shower and pooping in every toilet he sees.
  • His interaction with Ned at the start of part 6.
    Ned: You remind me of a guy I served with in 'Nam.
    Jesse: *Imitating Ned's voice box* Thank you.
    Ned: Remember you can legally kill anything in self-defense.
    Jesse: They're coming right for us.
    Ned: Do you need to borrow my voice box?
    Jesse: *Speaking normally* Nope! Got it covered!
  • It takes a while, but in Part 7 Jesse finally finds the fart button.
  • Jesse's absolute refusal to, when given the option, skip past Jimmy's stuttering attempts to say the words "enchantment" & "destiny"
    Oh I'm not skippin' this. Nope. I'm putting the controller down. Let's see how far down the rabbit hole we go.
    • He enjoys it so much that, in part 12, he doesn't seem to even realize you can't skip an instance that occurs during a side-quest.
  • Part 10 begins with a disclaimer:
    Jesse: Warning: The following episode contains... Butt Stuff. If you don't what that means or you have a problem with... Butt Stuff, then don't watch because you will be offended. But if you made it through, like, episode 2 of South Park back in the 90s, you should be okay. But remember.. Butt Stuff!
    • Jesse gets an alien helmet, immediately recognizes its resemblance to a Dragon Ball Z scouter, and dyes it accordingly.
  • Jesse cracks up watching the New Kid staring blankly ahead at the screen:
    "I don't know why that's so funny to me! His expression's just like 'Why do you do this to me? Why do you do this to yourself?' *giggles* Shut up, Internet! I thought it was funny."
  • Jesse sees Jimmy now has the ability "Brown Note:"
    Oh my God, I wanna see a Nazi Zombie shit himself!

     Diablo III: Reaper of Souls 
  • After speaking to Ivy, an NPC whose husband was killed in the Big Bad's initial attack, Jesse meets another NPC:
    Male NPC: At long last, a hero comes to save us. That won't bring my wife back, though, will it?
    Jesse: (singsong) I know a lady who's single! (normal) If you're lookin'.

     Yesterday 
  • Jesse's escalating Big Whats in part two when the early plot twists start kicking in.
  • During the initial scene between John Yesterday and Henry White:
    Jesse: What I thought was a game about a nerdy hero turned out to be a game about a nerdy ginger villain. Ooh, this is even more exciting!

     Among the Sleep 
  • Jesse deciding he's going to sneak around in the bushes "like a baby Metal Gear Solid".
    Jesse: Baby Snake they'll call me!
    • Just the way he's so tactical about the whole thing with keeping himself in cover to hide from the monster(s), considering he's playing a two year old. It makes the game slightly less scary - but only slightly.
  • Jesse's first encounter with the monster and first proper jump scare.
  • Jesse and the Top Hat Fish. He can't resist the obvious joke...
    Jesse: (as the fish) Let me tell you about TotalBiscuit fov sliders!
  • Saying a drawing looks like Slenderman in a hat.

    Resident Evil 6 w/ Cryaotic (Chaoticmonki) 
  • In the first episode, Cry and Jesse's response to seeing Helena pick up a phone.
    Cry: Is it bad that when Helena picked up the phone she looked at it, I just imagined her seeing a dick pic?
    Jesse: That's why he came back for it
    Cry: He's like "shit!"
    Jesse: "Oh, I forgot that!"
    Cry: "Awkward, fuck..."
    • Also from the first episode, they come across a door with a bloody handprint.
      Cry: *gasp* Look at, look at, look at it!
      Jesse: It's a bloody hand.
      Cry: Two of 'em, three of 'em, several of 'em.
      Jesse: Oh she could be in there playing the piano as a zombie? That's talented.
    • Jesse's comment that jump scares don't scare him turns into Tempting Fate when a Scare Chord plays and it's Cry's appearance that startles him.
  • At the beginning of the second episode, Leon and Helena realizing that everyone on the campus is infected leads to this amusing conversation between Jesse and Cry:
    Jesse: Oh no. OH NO. Zombie college students!
    Cry: Ah shit! Wait! That means we're going to get so much free beers!
    Jesse: Zombie beers.
    *Cry and Jesse cracks up*
    Jesse: I don't know what that means!
    Cry: It's such a stupid idea! I love it!
    Jesse: [...] Oh no, lecture halls!
    Cry: Zombie lecturers!
    Jesse: This is going to be the worst!
    • Made even funnier when a zombie lecturer really does show up.
  • The thumbnail used for Chris and Piers' campaign. Good god.

    Shovel Knight w/ The Completionist 
  • In episode 1, Jesse asks if he can go down the hole.
    Jesse: Is this a whole I can go down in?
    Jirard: There are rarely holes you want to try and go down in.
    Jesse: Heh heh heh, internet!
    Jirard: Heh heh... we're twelve.
    • #YouTubeMeat
      Jirard: That meat, though, that Youtube meat.
      Jesse: Ladies! Hashtag YouTubeMeat.
      Jirard: I don't think there's ever an appropriate time to say "hashtag YouTubeMeat."
      Jesse: That's why I said it. You know me, I've never been appropriate person.
  • Throughout episode 2, Jesse's increasing worry and raging about dying as Jirard convinces him to destroy the checkpoints. Coupled by, at one point, Jesse destroying a checkpoint completely without thinking about it.
    Jirard: You should see his face right now. So angry.
    • This exchange as Jirard takes over to replay the level after Jesse dies:
      Jesse: You're Spider-Man to my Gwen Stacy. How'd that work out?
      Jirard: I feel that I have betrayed you. I feel that i am now going to be Spider-Man for forever no matter what anyone says; and Mary Jane Watson and I will never be.
      Jesse: Nope I'm going to give you a Mephisto bargain and reset the universe so that marriage never happens.
    • After Jesse gets the "Get to the Point" Achievement for destroying the checkpoints in Pridemoor Keep
      Jesse: Oh, and it's only one level?
      Jirard: There's one all the levels.
      Jesse: Oh to Hell with that!

     PT 
  • PT is known to be terrifying, even for a demo, but how afraid Davis, Jesse, Jirard, and Greg are makes it hilarious to watch. This playthrough probably ranks as one of the funnier ones you will see of P.T.
  • Jesse's Madness Mantra of "He shot that girl in the bathroom!" is repeated multiple times before Jirard screams that Jesse's freaking him out.

    Fan Fridays 
The Fan Fridays are hilarious in and of themselves, as it seems the fans doing the suggesting seem to make it a point to find the craziest games imaginable for him to play. Some particularly good moments, however:

  • Jesse's reactions to realizing he's playing a girl in Hatoful Boyfriend. Which also makes his not using the name Cox Hilarious in Hindsight.
  • The end of the I Wanna Be the Guy Gaiden video.
    Jesse: "WHY WOULD IT EVEN DO THIS?! I SAID I WOULDN'T RAGE! I PROMISED I WOULDN'T RA-!"
    * dies*
    Jesse: *furiously pounds on desk*
    • Even better is the apparent reason the screen flipped on him at the end. All throughout the video was a notice about a new patch to the game, warning retribution if you didn't download it. When the screen flips, you see at the bottom, upside down, the text "What part of get the patch do you not understand".
  • Part 2 of that Fan Friday has him playing Slender, and freaking out within seconds before he's even done anything. By the end...
    I've never been so afraid of grass rendering in my entire damn life.
    • That is followed shortly after by momentary distortion and Jesse staring at the screen in silent horror for a good ten seconds.
  • From The Political Machine Rematch with Crendor: Hipster Lincoln! Jesse laughs for nearly 20 seconds straight before he can come up with a coherent response.
    • Any of Crendor's characters seems to be able to do the trick. The same thing happens in the final battle.
  • Before even watching the video: the preview thumbnail for Jesse's 9/27/12 "Revenge of the Q&A" shows Jesse wearing a Bane mask from The Dark Knight Rises. Jesse is inordinately fond of his Bane-slash-Deckard Cain impersonation.
  • In his second attempt at FTL, Jesse gets boarded by an attacker with the same name as one of his recently deceased crew members. ATREYU!!!
  • Jesse is bad at farming.
  • THE MOST EXCITING GAME EVER.
    • Most of the video is Jesse failing to stop in time to pick up passengers, rambling about nothing in particular, and finally deciding to just screw it and try to derail the train. He manages to do so, AND THE TRAIN GOES THROUGH A BRIDGE.
  • The Fan Friday featuring Katawa Shoujo. Pretty much all of it, but highlights include his consistent mispronunciation of the Japanese words, the cartoonish voices he gives the characters such as the teacher Mutou, and his reaction to realizing just what kind of game he's playing.
    (to the viewers who requested this game) Oh God... you dicks... you dicks... is this a game where a kid with arrhythmia actively tries to bang disabled girls? *sigh* Look, I'm gonna make the best of this but if any of you assholes out there who are gonna start writing me like "Jesse you're making humorous comments about disabled students." This is on you. This is on you, for making me play this!
    • Also, his comment on the video itself, that suggested that he kept playing and wound up getting the Bad Ending.
      So I went ahead and played a bit more today just to see about the possibility of "more". I played for 2 hours and was given 2 additional choices :P Spoiler I failed at each. I'm not sure I have it in me to suck at hitting on girls in anything but real life :P
  • The Ship Murder Party Fan "Frunday" is pretty much wall-to-wall hilarity. One of the best parts has to be when they start off playing a regular version of the game and Jesse finds himself on the hunt for Dora A. bin-Laden. Then they switch over to "World Leaders" mode server, a mod where the players must hunt down and kill various world leaders. Among them is a certain other bin-Laden. Jesse is in hysterics when he finds this out.
    • "Hey George, I hear you've been looking for me!"
    • The video was made not long after Margaret Thatcher passed away. She's one of the characters in the game mode. This being The Ship, this creates some awkward moments. Meanwhile, omzit runs through the corridors calling for Thatcher's blood whenever he gets her as a target. So many Too Soon comments are made that one player goes so far as to suggest they ought to just make it the title, and is part of the reason Jesse calls it "The Most Offensive Game Ever".
  • During the Fan Friday of Game Dev Tycoon, Jesse's hastily thrown together Take That, Critics! is his mos successful game to date, cracking him up. Earlier, his most successful game was "Last Hope" (which inadvertently repeated Square's history with the original Final Fantasy).
    • Later on, as he starts a real playthrough, it becomes clear that he is the worst namer of games on the planet—his process is just vomiting out words that sorta-kinda fit the theme and rolling with it, even the misspellings.
      Jesse: Do not... do NOT let me name a child!
    • His Game Dev Tycoon Let's Play ends abruptly when his MMO's maintenance costs exceed its profits. It's abrupt because it happens within the span of around a minute, and it's hilarious because he had around a billion dollars in the bank before he went under.
  • Jesse plays Knights of Pen and Paper, a game about a group of people playing a traditional Tabletop RPG together. By the end of the video, Jesse's group members include Grandma the paladin, a hipster mage, and Woofie the cleric.
  • In the Ride To Hell Retribution video, Jesse comes across a truck he has to powerslide under. After multiple failed attempts (because the game is telling him to push what he thinks is the up arrow, when it means shift), he simply drives around the damn thing. And then there's his reaction to the sex scenes.
  • Goat Simulator. The whole damn thing.
  • Near the end of Volgarr The Viking, Jesse declares that if he can just finish the level, he'll be happy. He finally reaches the top of the fortress... and meets the first boss. he doesn't finish the level.
    Jesse: Son of a bitch!
  • Five Nights at Freddy's: The Deadpool cupcake, and Jesse absentmindedly playing with the lights during the intro if you know how the game works You're supposed to manage your resources so that the power lasts all night. Jesse just wasted a whole bunch of it..

     Minecraft and RPG Makers 
  • Jesse’s blind first foray into Minecraft. Having no idea what he’s supposed to be doing, he ends up confused and terrified.
  • Slyfox and the Yogscast both have a go at trying to explain Minecraft to Jesse, with variying levels of success.
  • “Damn you Cookie Monster!” The start of omzit’s Running Gag of throwing cookies in everyone’s way.
  • ”Trust us, we’re Americans.”
  • Meeuwes randomly starts singing a Dutch rap song where the only line in English is “Diamonds on my neck, bitch.” And he keeps going, even while Jesse and the others are making fun of him and trying to figure out what the heck he’s saying.
    Jesse:What does that mean? *Meeuwes keeps singing* '’What does that mean?’’
    Jesse:*starts singing random nonsense* I can make up gibberish words too, what does that mean? *Meeuwes ignores him and keeps going*
    Jesse:What is he doing with blinzes? He has a baby on his blinzes?
  • "Don’t fall off naked baby!”
  • Any of the "build days" where fans and sometimes professionals are invited on to the server to help with large scale builds. Hilarity often ensues along with the awesomeness.
  • One day, Omzit shows up drunk…
    Jesse:People watching right now are probably like “Boy. Thomas is extra annoying today. Well…”
    omzit:Oh, annoying, is that what I am now?! Well thank you very f*cking much you…buh, something!
  • After months of waiting, a new episode finally came out. Hilarity ensued.
    • Thomas, at Jesse's request, does a rap about pirates. Jesse then asks for a rap about Meeuwes. The result has to be censored multiple times.
    • The censor beep gets used several more times after that. At one point Lewis repeats something that gets beeped out - all we know is that he didn't know it was offensive and he somehow added a slur and made it worse.
    • The Golden Hoe.
    • "I'm trying to congratulate you and you're all cats."
  • The Running Gag that they keep unintentionally building things that look like penises.
  • RPG Makers: Memory Lane has everyone going back through all the old stuff they build and remembering all the stupid jokes they made.
    • Meeuwes and Jesse prancing.
    • They try out a boss fight, but since they don't have the custom mobs in yet it looks like a skeleton turns into a spider. Jesse complains/mocks them about this for the rest of the video.
  • RPG Makers: BUILD DAY IS COMING!!!
    • Jesse finds a little grove out in the middle of nowhere that he's told to ignore. Obviously he doesn't, and he decides that it's going to be an Easter Egg with a circle of Omzits/Thomas' that dance once every hour, and a hidden weapon that looks like a cookie and makes more cookies.
    Jesse: This is a thing now!

Non-Video Game Moments

     Cox N' Crendor Podcast 
  • The December 11, 2012 episode. Jesse gets way too much enjoyment out of hearing Crendor mispronounce the word "scarce" early in the show.
  • Starting off on what would be a trend of focusing on odd things that happen Only in Florida, they discuss the state's notoriety for having the most cases of public masturbation. Jesse comes up with an ad that involved old men masturbating while "Cheeseburger in Paradise" plays, and becomes too amused.
    • And by "too amused" we mean that Jesse seriously thought that he was in danger of dying from being unable to stop laughing. According to him if he had succeeded: Worth It.
  • Due to Crendor being a Chicago native, the duo will inadvertently parody Bill Swerski's Superfans when discussing sports, complete with Jesse horrendously attempting a Chicago accent that sounds more Eastern European.
  • The Valentine's Day episode, in which Jesse gives Crendor a quick on whether or not certain statements are RPG plotlines, or Florida headlines. Some of the answers will surprise you.
  • Crendor's repeated demands for Squishables, and Jesse's annoyance when fans actually start sending them to him.
  • http://jessecoxtombstonequotes.com/ - A site dedicated to Jesse's "Tombstone Quotes." The random quotes that Jesse makes that. Each comment typically Makes Just as Much Sense in Context.
  • The Pele conversation. Jesse was unable to stop laughing for a good 2 minutes straight.
