Anais: (Deadpan) This plan already reeks of failure.

- Mr. Small expresses his opinions on art:
Mr. Small: Take a look at this picture. Is this what you think is painting?

When he comes back, he's apparently been out to sea for a long time, evidenced by his beard stubble, sunburn, and lack of clothes (he was using the raft to cover his front). When Darwin asks what happened to his clothes he angrily responds that he ate them.
- The "I'm a ballerina" scene
- "Step 5: realize you've just been pranked." (frowns with thousand-yard stare) "Step 6: try to fit down the chimney head-first." (smiles again)

- "A music video! A music video! We are in a music video! This is what we call a music video! Oh baby! We're singin'!"
- The beginning when Gumball is first traumatized by Grandma Jojo's kiss.
- The scene where Anais tries to get Grandma Jojo's luggage up the staircase using a rock and plank catapult, complete with schematic nailed to the wall. She miscalculates, causing the suitcase to fly out the front door which Darwin just opened, after which it flies open onto Gumball and closes on him. His scream is what seals it.
- At the end Anais gets the suitcase up the stairs... only for Jojo to ask her to take it back down again, making Anais furious in a manner similar to the example from "The Quest" above. She then throws the suitcase out the window.
- Richard trying to cheer Gumball up over not finding a date:

- When they get to the party, Penny's just a bit jealous that Gumball's with Tina.

Gumball: And besides, Principal Brown, you can do so much better than that!
- Mr. Small's cute little eye twitch when he says "Hippity rap"◊ is perfect, and the whole Piss-Take Rap is great.

- Nicole in her weekend anger management class:
Nicole (to Gumball, still perfectly calm and motherly): Behind this door I'm a totally different person. Trust me, you don't want to see this.
(Nicole walks inside)
Mr. Small: Good afternoon, Nicole!
(Mr. Small goes flying through the door and crashes into another door on other side of the hallway)
Anais: (poking her head out of the door) Could you keep it down out there?

It's cruel at first, but transcends into hilarity.

- Anais and Nicole are coming home, Nicole notices the Robinsons are talking to a police officer next to their burning car.

- Science and reason going down the drain as the world disproves Anais' claim that bad luck's bogus by spontaneously generating a cloud indoors to strike Gumball with lightning.
- The universe going Rube Goldbergian outer limits on Gumball in an all out attempt to destroy him, leading to a climactic homage to Final Destination.
- At the end, the family decide to use their minds to get Daisyland tickets. We're then treated to a scene where a family ticket blows away from a stand, into a car, into a plane, then into the hospital room the Wattersons were in at the time. Specifically, right into the table fan it is shredded into pieces by.
Darwin: Yaaay! I wished for snow!
- At the beginning of the montage of Gumball filling the "Gross Jar" in "The Microwave" he's seen blowing his nose and putting the used napkins in the jar. Eventually he sneezes so hard his entire face comes off.

- Nicole has a particularly, hilariously epic tantrum as she trashed her bosses' office in the middle of her promotion interview.
- What Nicole did to Tina Rex's father will forever be a Moment of Awesome, and one of her funniest over-reactions as well: Nicole closes the doors on Tina's garage house, with Tina's father's eyes glowing in the darkness behind Nicole, each larger than her entire body... and then "I'm glad we had this little talk." As she walks away, the building collapses. She beat a giant T-Rex so badly the building collapsed.
- Near the beginning of the episode when Nicole is showing why she needs a new microwave, she puts a potted flower next to it and turns the microwave on. The radiation from the microwave causes the flower to disintegrate.
- The Wattersons besides Anais end up in a big kung-fu fight over the titular device. Right before it starts, a sign on the wall behind Nicole says this:
- Later in the same battle, Nicole performs a Matrix like leap to the roof of another building. As Gumball and Darwin stop short, Richard attempts and fails to make the same jump. By the sound, his Epic Fail was rather painful.
- The Bowdlerised version of Captain Punch (a Sin City-esque gritty action comic).
What's this? Looks like three ski enthusiasts have just withdrawn their hard earned wages from the bank!
Take this... (handwritten on whiteout over a picture of someone with a hand drawn bouquet) lovely bunch of flowers!
I'm gonna take you guys down... to a nice restaurant for a Swiss fondue!!(close up shot) My treat!''
- Gumball prepares to give chase to Hector by grabbing a nearby broom and mounting it, and then he falls face first to the ground.

- When Gumball is in the middle of climbing Hector, Darwin smugly tries to get Gumball to learn a lesson.

Darwin: ... duck?

- When Penny's dad is about to accidentally drive into her, Gumball attempts a Diving Save, but once he does Penny's dad veers off-course looking like he's about to hit Tobias. He brushes just past Tobias, his mirror comes off and he crashes into the Wattersons' house.

- Leslie's failed Big Damn Heroes moment, where he tries to vacuum the jealousy Ghostbusters-style but ends up vacuuming Carrie's face instead, causing it to become stretched out. She pulls a hair out of her mouth and in a completely deadpan voice says "Gross."
- When the jealousy is expelled from Gumball's body it goes flying around Carrie's room saying it wants all the stuff she has like a spoiled kid who wants a toy his best friend has. It then starts Body Surfing and making its hosts admit their desires; Leslie wants his own room like Carrie, Carrie wants her own body like Darwin, and Darwin says he's actually quite happy with his life.

- Darwin orders Gumball to get "justice" against Banana Joe by chewing on his jockstrap.
- Gumball and Darwin beat themselves up so Joe thinks they had an even fight, culminating in Gumball's idea for finishing it:
Gumball: Hey dude, pull one of my teeth out!
(Darwin reaches into Gumball's mouth)
Gumball: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa that's completely over-the-top isn't it?

Gumball and Darwin assume he's dead, until he blows a bubble.
- "DON'T TALK TO ME LIKE I'M HYSTERICAL!"

- When Gumball, Darwin, Anais, Nicole and Larry are chasing Richard, one of his World-Wrecking Waves causes them to switch heads. Gumball with Anais' head says he suddenly feels smart, whereas Anais with Gumball's head says she doesn't.
- As Nicole chases Richard down to stop him from keeping his job, she goes from switching into various colors to being turned into a live-action cat.◊ Bonus points for Darwin, Anais, and Larry who were de-anthropomorphized◊ into a rabbit tinted pink, a rock with a cap on it, and a goldfish with human legs.
- The first thing Darwin does after being turned into a ghost is kiss Carrie.
- Gumball and Darwin then go on a haunting spree that includes an attempt to possess Tina Rex. They botch that when they realize that controlling her seems to look and feel like trying to play QWOP.
- Another one before it has them possess a head of a moose in Robinsons' residence while messing with Margaret. As she drops her tray of right on the spot.
- Gumball pointing out the makeshift items they have in lieu of the real thing; instead of an MP3 player they have a calculator with a pair of earbuds taped to it, instead of Kung Fu Panda they have a bargain-bin mockbuster called How to Ratatwang Your Panda, and instead of a blender they have a table fan pointed downward.

Gumball: (shivers) Oh, that was like being born.
- Gumball hands Ms. Simian his report card with Richard's signature written as "R. Watterson" in highly stylized letters (similar to the logo for the band Metallica), and she assumes that it's forged. When they show it to Richard, he replicates it on a suspension form signifying that it actually was his signature, so Gumball and Darwin are off the hook; this being Richard, it's not a surprise.
- Gumball's Imagine Spot of a giant Tina fighting a giant defense-mode Bobert.
- ALAN VS WILLIAAAAM!!!!!
Gumball: Yeah, I'd watch it. But it'd be better if they were in a cage.
(cue Alan and William suddenly in a cage)
Darwin: With spikes.
(cage suddenly has spikes. Alan (who is a balloon) and William get scared.)

- Ms. Simian in a church-like building, asking no one in particular whether or not it's right to frame someone you know is a troublemaker... and the reveal that it's actually a natural history museum and she's talking to her father (an ape-like skeleton behind a glass case).

Darwin: (still starry eyed) I shouldn't have promised.
- Darwin's first song, "What He Thinks About Us", which is one big insult to the backup singers. Calling Carrie an "emo freak", Jamie "half cow, half troglodyte", saying Masami's friends only like her for her money, and that Joe sings like a dog with rabies.
- In response to Teri's germaphobia, Darwin tells her that her hand is covered in germs—then licks it.
- When Gumball defeats Darwin in the second round, his victory pose is similar to Chun-Li's. He even yells "YATTA!" along with it.

- "I'm tired of staring... at your hideous... hairy... MAN TOES!"
- Darwin and Gumball have a Street Fighter-type insult fight at the end. Darwin beats Gumball in the first round by spamming the same attack over and over.
- For those curious, here's that scene in Japanese. Aside from the inherent hilarity added by a Japanese announcer making the whole thing even more like Street Fighter, Gumball and Darwin are respectively voiced by Junko Takeuchi and Yumiko Kobayashi, who also respectively voiced Naruto and Black Star. In other words, watching this scene in Japanese is dangerously close to witnessing two of the hammiest ninjas in all of anime history having an insult fight!
- When Gumball and Darwin tell Clayton does a better job of doing Banana Joe's "dancing banana" schtick, Joe turns around dramatically with a single tear drop running down his eye, to the tune of Pagliacci.

- When Principal Brown takes Gumball and Darwin to his office, Gumball argues that what he's doing is a violation of the First Amendment, to which Principal Brown informs him that his preventing Bobert from making out with the school defibrillator and cracking jokes about the nurse's mother is not a violation of their freedom of speech. When he sentences them to mow the football field Gumball wishes that he would get lost, so Bobert knocks him out and puts him in a forest. Gumball then has Bobert burn a diagram into the football field reading "glasses + horse's ass = Principal Brown".
- Bobert taking all of Gumball's metaphors literally; when he wishes Ms. Simian would chill out Bobert puts her in the cold storage room, when he wishes there were less skaters in the world Bobert shoots lasers at Mr. Small, and when he tells Rocky to get out after Rocky tells him that school is canceled, Bobert throws Rocky out the window.
- The Band-Aid nurse telling Miss Simian that she's not a mechanic after fixing Bobert for the second time, and Miss Simian's responsed accordingly:
Well, I'm not a floristnote or a meteorologistnote or some kind of freakshow ownernote , but you don't see me complaining, do you?
- Gumball hiding in cold storage, only to run out screaming after Miss Simian tries to cozy up to him for warmth.

- When the kids try to get the homeless man to be Santa at the mall, they ask him what they want for Christmas. He calls them spoiled and tells them they shouldn't get anything they asked for, so they start wrecking the decorations in anger until eventually he joins in too.
- When Gumball asks Santa's magic bag for a pair of walkie-talkies, he gets them gift wrapped and can't open them in time because they're so well wrapped. He asks the bag for a pair of scissors, which are also gift wrapped, prompting his response of "Are you kidding me?!"
- Gumball's magic hands.
Darwin: (After slipping the watch into Gumball's hand) Now check your hand.
Gumball: What, this one? (opens his hand to reveal he isn't holding anything) Or, this one? *opens his other hand to reveal the same* Now check yours.
Darwin: (Sees he's still holding the watch) WHAT?! (Sees that Gumball is gone) DOUBLE WHAT!?
- And later...
Marvin: (Pushes the watch on Gumball) No, I want you to have it.
Gumball: Check your hands... You keep it.
Marvin: Check behind your ear... You keep it.
Gumball: Now check inside your pants...
Marvin: But I'm not wearing any... (looks down to see he's suddenly and inexplicably wearing pants)
- And later...
- Gumball threatens to knock himself out with Marvin's cane and accuse him of doing it, only to end up giving himself brain damage after the first whack.
- The episode begins with Gumball and Richard's conversation about why people go to school and get jobs, while Darwin and Anais are understandably terrified by Richard's driving.
- Nicole and Anais continuing to sit on thin air after Gumball takes the chairs from them.
- Richard, Nicole, and Anais tearing up when Gumball says that they have to turn off the TV. Darwin laughs for a few seconds before realizing that Gumball's serious and tears up as well.
- Richard telling Nicole to punish Gumball for being boring.
- When the family is singing, Richard manages to break his top tooth in half, then when he talks he whistles through it until it fixes itself in the next scene.
- When a wasp comes by, Gumball hides from it in Nicole's skirt. Said wasp then stings Gumball's finger, and when he attempts to suck the venom out his lips swell up.
- Gumball's digestive organs expressing their disdain over Gumball eating dirt.
- In the opening scene, Gumball tries to trip up a pursuing Tina by spilling soapy water on the floor. This initially works but then she gets up and we ended up with a skating T. Rex.
- When Darwin flakes on Gumball, the latter tells Tina to just do what she's going to do. Cut to them at home with Gumball in a neck brace and a very pissed look on his face. Even more funny when it's seen that Darwin is playing a Legend of Zelda-style video game where a giant, dinosaur-like beast is constantly squashing the hero.
- When Gumball drops the computer on Darwin's foot in retaliation for forcing an apology out of him, Darwin lets out a shriek with a pitch-modulation effect so silly and over the top it's hard not to laugh.
- Richard acting high from dental anesthetics for most of the episode, specifically Nicole messing with Richard by saying the phone receiver he's using as a showerhead is actually an ice cream cone, Gumball's line about how Richard's driving and parking are better when he's high on anesthetics, and Richard's Mushroom Samba of chasing after a hamburger in a magical world of junk food while three condiment bottles chant, "Sauce! Sauce! Sauce!", which turns out to be Richard trying to eat Rocky and Gumball, Darwin, and Anais yelling, "Stop! Stop! Stop!"
- Darwin and Anais's failed attempts to see what Gumball is miming.
- Nicole taking her anger of Granny Jojo moving in to help raise the kids out on an I.V. stand, then bending it back to the way it was after the doctor tells her that it costs $300 to replace.
- When Granny Jojo is trying to make the family afraid of everything in "The Authority", she doesn't let Anais close the window, closes the thing herself, then it explodes—because Jojo planted A BOMB in her own granddaughter's room.
Granny Jojo: And this lesson shows that nobody is safe around windows.
- While everyone is screaming in Slo Mo, Darwin stops prematurely, and upon realizing everyone is still mid-scream, quickly jumps back into it.
- When Nicole tells her family to remember what they learned, they all have a flashback of them learning from their mistakes:
- Darwin puts a bowl in the microwave while a metal spoon is in it, causing an explosion. The next time, he remembers to take the spoon out.
- Gumball tries to get a snack out of a vending machine by sticking his arm inside, which leads to his whole body getting stuck inside and a worker having to cut him out with a circular saw. The next time, he remembers to put a dollar in.
- Anais tries to reach a cookie jar on a shelf high up, but falls on her face. The next time, she gets Gumball to do it instead because he's taller, and he also falls on his face but manages to get the jar.
- As an alternative to washing the hand that he high-fived Penny with, Gumball suggests cutting it off and keeping it in a memory box.
- The repairmen who refused to help a fat jogger gets crushed under that jogger. Darwin and Gumball not only ignore his plea for help, Darwin adds insult to injury by taking the DVD out of the jogger's buttcrack, then wipes it off on the repairman.
- When Carrie checks the movie out for them, it accidentally winds up in her case. When Gumball and Darwin come back for it, they find her watching it in her room, transfixed. She loved it.
Carrie: (anguished) I thought I was a hardcore horror movie fan and I was living a lie! (seizing the front of Gumball's shirt emphatically) Tell me: is it wrong for a punk-rock chick who lives in a haunted, malevolent mansion to be touched by the magical friendship of a pony?
- Richard barged in on a break dance match and started doing his own moves, totally embarrassing Gumball and Darwin. They think back to a Career Day presentation that Gumball brought him to, where he did exactly the same dance.
- Gumball and Darwin trying to eat and prepare near-expired groceries, only for them to hit their expiration date and rapidly turn to nothing.
- Gumball is being a jerk to his dad while he's trying to rescue him. When Richard seemingly falls to his death, Gumball get teary-eyed and regrets his jerkiness. However, Richard appears behind him A-OK and Gumball goes right back to being a jerk like nothing happened.
- Darwin's various attempts to apologize to Gumball after the latter's dream, which include a sappy poem, hiding in his locker to surprise him, sending him a video of a singing dog, and locking himself in a medieval stocks as he's pecked by crows.
- In their dream, Gumball at one point finds that he and Darwin are alone in the family's car slowly sinking into the sea. Darwin tells Gumball that they've been there for 3 days and in that time he's considered eating him, but Gumball notices bite marks on his arm that mean Darwin evidently progressed beyond "considering".
- When they eventually return to Gumball's dream and Darwin is being forced to repeat his original actions against his will, Gumball tries to stop him by putting a brick wall in front of him, which injures him but doesn't stop him in his tracks, then makes his lips suck in so he can't kiss Penny, which doesn't work, so while Darwin is in mid-kiss Gumball replaces Penny's face with Sussie's. Back in the real world, Darwin is understandably horrified.
- Gumball uses Darwin as a player character for a real life video game. He glitches Darwin and somehow restarts the world to fix him.
- The entire scene where Gumball and Darwin impersonating each other to prove their respective points.
Gumball as Darwin: Hey, I'm Darwin! Oh, your shoes are dirty! Looks like you could do with a doormat! (Gumball wipes Darwin's shoes on his own face) Hello, Gumball! Would you mind holding my hand for my entire life? What are we gonna do? Where are we gonna go? What are we gonna have for lunch today? Because I find even the simplest decisions (regular voice) baffling. (resumes impersonation) He he! Look at that beautiful chicken pecking the mold off that old chicken leg! Isn't the circle of life beautiful?
Darwin as Gumball: Duh, hey I'm Gumball. Duh! I'm too busy to look where I'm going 'cause I'm in love with Penny, or something! Duh, hey Sussie! While conveniently ignoring my own character flaws, I'm happy to point out that you eat with the grace of a one-toothed camel! Hey Rocky (shoves Rocky over), let me help you with lasagna! (Darwin laughs while throwing lasagna at everyone) What the what? I should apologize, but I won't, because I always assume I'm in the right!
- Gumball freaking out after Darwin kidnapped Tobias' mother. His delivery of the lines sell it.
Gumball: You STOLE HIS MOM?!
Darwin: You said to take something he likes!
Gumball: Something, not someone!
Darwin: Uh, did I go too far?
Gumball: Oh, I don't know, why don't you ask our new house guest?! [Turns Tobias' mom around who is bound on a chair] Do you think he's gone too far? Oh wait, she can't answer, because you TIED HER UP, YOU PSYCHO!
- Alan's reactions when stressed out - especially when he's jealous over what looks like Carmen and Gumball being together - are hilariously exaggerated. He just hovers in the background of the scene and give Gumball a Death Glare for well over a minute and a half.
Gumball: OK... I think that's enough now. If he keeps looking at me like that, I think my head's going to explode.
(Scare Chord as camera zooms in on Alan's face)
- Alan is so sad, he deflates and tells Gumball he can't blow himself back up on his own. Cut to Alan happily re-inflated and Gumball walking out of the boys' bathroom with a disgusted look on his face.
Alan: Thanks Gumball!
Gumball: Whatever, man.
- The look◊ Gumball is making when he figures out Masami's was using him to get together with Alan.
- Alan keeps trying to give a cliche heartfelt speech to calm down Masami —who has gone Yandere over him while he keeps trying to go back to Carmen—and Gumball keeps nearly ruining it with aside comments.
Alan: I'm sorry Masami, but it's her that I love!
Masami: But why her and not me?
Gumball: Because you're a psycho?
Alan: Masami, I can't explain how my heart works.
Gumball: If it's anything like his digestive system, you probably don't want to know.
Alan: I was saying, I can't explain what my heart works, but I know what it wants, and I learned today that I have to stand up for that.
Gumball: Dude, isn't this the opposite of the lesson you're trying to teach—
Alan: JUST SHUT UP, OK?!
- Gumball and Darwin "studying" by finding all kinds of ways to goof off.
- Gumball and Darwin trying to absorb knowledge by eating books. What's worse, they're not even math books. Darwin eats a book on how to speak Spanish and begins speaking Spanish while Gumball eats an Elizabethan poetry book and begins speaking like a character from a Shakespeare play.
- Gumball and Darwin finding and laughing at Mr. Brown's pin-up calendar for Ms. Simian.
- The punishment for finding and laughing at the pin-up calendar: spend the day listening to Mr. Small's poetry.
- Gumball steals the rat kid's rake and his deformed bodyshape makes it obvious that he ate it. When the rat looks at Gumball suspiciously, he nonchalantly points at some other guys, and the rat buys it immediately. Cut to the next scene where the Bomb Guy is waiting outside the bathroom and Gumball hands him the rake he kept in his body.
- Darwin's left arm is forced to do whatever Richard's does, causing him to volunteer for a bunch of unpleasant extracurricular activities with Mr. Small, concluding with an eco-protest where they'll spend forty-eight hours chained to a doomed tree, something even he feels the need to give significant warning for:
Mr. Small: Are you sure Darwin? I'm not gonna lie to ya buddy. We're gonna get maced!
- Gumball pretending he's pregnant to get a bus seat, only for Darwin to fall out of his shirt.
- The reason why Banana Joe doesn't like Gumball or Darwin: first, they didn't defend Banana Joe when Tobias said his mom was so ripe she had fruit flies. Then, they drove to Daisyland on his birthday and left Banana Joe at the gas station, and didn't come back for him until after they spent the day at Daisyland. Another time, they went camping with Banana Joe and left him behind. He had to use his peel and eat a bit of himself to survive, then walked home just as a snowstorm blew in, which is why he doesn't have feet anymore.
- This line
Gumball: Your guilt is strong, my friend, but it is no match for the power of my selfishness!

- Gumball using the Konami Code only to glitch up and get stuck in a tank.
- "IT'S BABY ANAIS, THE LIVING BABY DOLL!" Which then turns into "THE ANAIHILATOOOOOR!"
- It's funny enough as is, but then someone made a fan-animation...
- The entirely of Ninja George II.
- Gumball's head inflating to massive size, corresponding with his ego, as Sarah speaks of what she'd heard of him.
- Gumball and Darwin being Genre Savvy enough to know how the plot of the episode will happen, and it goes exactly as they predicted despite their efforts to make it not happen.
- The Coach of the two kids briefly appears to be a voice of reason, but turns out to be insanely childish, practically singing about how they would lose if they got in a fight.
Coach: You scared, little piggies?
Gumball: Uh, yeah. You're a fully-grown man screaming at us, and if you continue, I'm gonna call the police.
Coach: Just what I'd expect from a couple of cowards like you! Who's the hardcore one now?
Gumball: You, I guess.
Darwin: You know what the worst thing is? This guy is a teacher.
Gumball: No, dude. The worst thing is that this guy's got two sweaters and he's not wearing either of them.
- Principal Brown's advice when he's told about kids trying to get in a fight:
"Now, fighting is never okay... But let's say he's got his arms around your neck like this. It might seem like a bad spot, but you have to take advantage of your environment. 'Oh, looky what we've got here!' His own shoe! You can just grab that, it's really very easy, most people won't expect it. Now you can throw it across the room, and he will release you, because most people usually really want their shoe back.... Another trick is that most shoes are opaque, so you can use it cover his eyes, effectively blinding him. Seize the advantage, spin him round, and spank him with his own footwear! With a 'bang' and a 'bam' and a 'bim' and a 'pow'!"
- What is Gumball's heart telling him?
"GET A RESTRAINING ORDER ON THOSE GUYS AND LIVE HAPPILY IN SHAME!!!!"
- When a non-moving background character is hit with a tennis ball and falls over like a cardboard cutout. The timing was just perfect.
- One line in Darwin's song pleading for the Internet to stop making fun of Gumball:
You are adding sombreros and lasers
to a kid who looks like he was tasered
- The Internet hacking a traffic signal and Gumball and Darwin inadvertently causing a huge pileup.
- The Internet tries to impede the duo's process by showing the Sheriff a forged police warrant for them, but thankfully for them he takes Police Are Useless to its fullest extent.
- Gumball's reaction to the Screamer Prank.
Gumball: Pfft, it wasn't scary at all!
- The Internet is personified as a 1990s-2000s style PC and his mother is a modem who communicates in dial-up noises.
- The Internet's reaction to Gumball and Darwin hugging him.
- Gumball attempts to get into the Internet by taking off his clothes and scanning himself... only for poor Darwin to get an eyeful of something unpleasant.
- When writing a fake e-mail to Daniel Lennard, Gumball gets frustrated by Darwin and Anais repeatedly pointing out that he's doing something wrong and when he's done he ends up writing the subject as "Fake email to Daniel Lennard", which becomes a Brick Joke when it's the reason the latter sees through the kids' ruse. Gumball then imagines himself going back in time to convince his past self to avoid making that mistake, only for past!Gumball to be too lazy to do it and both Gumballs getting into a fight using time as a weapon, such as present!Gumball slipping a mouse trap under past!Gumball's hand, past!Gumball eating candy to give present!Gumball bad teeth, present!Gumball putting Crupac the Barbarian's weapons (another Brick Joke) on the computer seat, and past!Gumball licking the keyboard to make present!Gumball sick.
- What makes it even funnier is the fact that they're imagining it!
- The first spot of Gumball sneaking into Nicole's room with amazing flexibility, only for Anais to point out how unrealistic it was, then we get a more realistic one where Gumball is portrayed as being much less acrobatic. Gotta love whenever it's brought up how Gumball is out of shape.
- Gumball getting a wedgie trying to climb the gate into the park.
- Earth and the Moon vocalize "Also Sprach Zarathustra", to the Sun's annoyance.
Sun: Do we have to do this every morning?
Moon: (singing) Yes I do~o... 'Cause~... I can!!!
- The overly enthusiastic hot dog in the microwave.
- The overdramatic burger, fries, and soda, who act like they're in a war.

- Everyone in town is going after the Wattersons because their antics affected everyone else's lives.

- "Dad fight! (crowd instantly gathers, Spock vs. Kirk music plays)"
- The episode referencing Gumball and Darwin's change in voice actors by having their voices suddenly screw up, particularly Gumball declaring "Our voices are broke!" in a deep voice that causes the bathroom to reverberate.
- The anticlimax of the scene with the store security guard. "Actually, I'm not allowed to do anything but ask you to leave the premises peacefully..."
- And his baton going limp as he admits it.
- The Band-Aid doctor telling Gumball and Darwin that they'll grow up to be strong like Richard, then they briefly turn into him.
- Mr. Fitzgerald channeling Bryan Mills when he mistakes Gumball for a prank caller.
- During his speech, his side of the Split-Screen Phone Call starts growing bigger and bigger until Gumball only has a small triangle of his side left, that his head is squished into the shape of. Then when the phone call ends, Darwin starts looking above Gumball's head, which Gumball questions.
Darwin: I don't know. What are you pointing at? Explanation
- During his speech, his side of the Split-Screen Phone Call starts growing bigger and bigger until Gumball only has a small triangle of his side left, that his head is squished into the shape of. Then when the phone call ends, Darwin starts looking above Gumball's head, which Gumball questions.
- When Gumball tries talking to Penny but lost his voice, Mr. Fitzgerald rolls up her window and starts giving the same speech again. Gumball, annoyed, opens Mr. Fitzgerald's door, rolls his window up, and slams the door back in his face.
- Gumball dejectedly walks along a sidewalk and kicks that little white rabbit girl off her tricycle without even noticing her.
- The entire rap segment. ALL OF IT.
- One highlight is Nicole in tears as Larry cuts up her credit card when it's rejected.
- When Gumball is in a jacket and low hanging, sagging pants.
Gumball: I don't wear a suit or a stupid tie/I dress with my eyes closed, and I still look fly
Louie: *points to Gumball* It looks like you got a leg transplant from a wiener dog.
Gumball: Oh yeah?! Well you, uh...
Gumball: ...And when I don't have a comeback/I can always cry...
- During the beginning, Gumball and Darwin are chasing the Rainbow Factory and Sarah keeps showing up, and after dodging her for a few times, Gumball then resorts to pushing her out of the way a lot. At one point, they run past her and Gumball runs back just to push her and say "We don't have the time!"
- Sarah's tape recorder. And the Running Gag of Gumball throwing it out of annoyance.
- When Sarah is trying to find out how she can fit into Gumball and Darwin's lives:
Gumball: Well, at the moment you're more like... the insanely obsessive one.
Sarah: The insanely obsessive one! I can totally do that.
Gumball: No, no, no. I didn't mean I wanted-
Sarah: And I'll be really creepy, and you'll be really scared, but in your final moments you'll realize that we're meant to be.
Gumball: My "final moments"? What does that mean?!
- Sarah's video and song, which consists of ways she's been stalking Darwin and Gumball for months, is hilariously disturbing. Perhaps the best part is when it suddenly cuts to her in front of Gumball's closet, wearing his clothes and happily dancing around.
- Gumball and Darwin's reactions to Sarah's video. Followed by rapid babbling of fear from both of them, a Beat, and ends with Gumball saying in a calm manner:
I think we need to have a reasonable conversation with this young lady.
- Sarah's sucky fanart of Gumball and Darwin.
- When Gumball and Darwin analyze Sarah's locker, they find a drawing of them where Darwin is much taller than Gumball. While Darwin's talking, Gumball makes a puzzled face, quietly compares his and Darwin's height, and checks his eyes. Then comes this exchange:
Darwin: (sadly) Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Gumball: I know, right? I'M DEFINITELY TALLER THAN YOU! AND IF MY EYES WERE THAT CLOSE TOGETHER, I'D BE A CYCLOPS!
- The end of the "fight" between Gumball and Darwin that basically invokes Left the Background Music On where Gumball has to extend the fight scene because Sarah can't get her tape player to change tracks and jump in between Gumball and Darwin like she's supposed to.
- When Gumball tries to exercise his organs start flipping out. When it looks like gallons of sweat are pouring out of him, he states that it's his organs crying.
- The Mass "Oh, Crap!" in response to Coach forcing Jamie to apologize to Gumball. And everyone's mouth stays open until the next day.
- We flashback to some of Jamie's worst acts of bullying: feeding Anton (a piece of toast) to ducks, chewing off Teri's leg and spitting it at her, and turning Banana Joe and Sarah into an ice cream sundae.
- At the end when Coach is revealed to be Jamie's mom Gumball and Darwin are more shocked that Coach is a woman.
- Just the entire episode in general. It's a parody of zombie apocalypse/survival horror/found footage horror movies and video games but it's not a "cheesy" parody. This episode would be downright terrifying if all the "infectees" didn't have goofy grins and drool rainbows.
- The episode begins with Richard's "Wonder Hug", which has the appearance of a miniature rainbow-colored nuke.
- Gumball tries to stop smiling by ripping off his mouth and putting it back on upside down, only for his head to horrifically rotate and turn his mouth back to its original position.
- When Simian realizes that there's something wrong with Gumball and Darwin, the camera starts to zoom in on her reaction, only to have it zoom in too much and hit her, as if there was an actual camera.

- Tina has Miss Simian cornered, and is about to infect her with the Joy (similar to what happened to Ripley on Aliens), but Tina can't hug her because of her short T-Rex arms!
- Richard entering the house with a box and a sandwich. He then explains how he saw a commercial about washing powder that made him wonder how much he'd need to wash a monkey. Then he thought about how cute monkeys are with their furry little faces, and then he thought about how puppies are cuter than dogs. So he bought a sandwich.
- After the turtle tears the head off the Kupok action figure in its flaming terrarium, it makes a tittering sound which is officially subtitled◊ as "[imitating Hannibal Lecter]"
- After the turtle's "death".
Darwin: (surprised) He was revived by my tears!
Gumball: (horrified) HE FEEDS ON MISERY!!!
- Not only is it awesome, but what Darwin says to the turtle is pretty damn funny.
- Anton's death montage includes getting crushed by a bowling ball, suffering a heart attack after seeing a screamer Internet video, getting stomped on by Tina Rex, Tobias unknowingly eating him as part of his lunch, getting blown up in chemistry class, getting hit in the face with a baseball, getting a door slammed on him, getting put through a paper shredder, exploding while playing a slide whistle, and getting pecked to death by the birds that emerge from his locker.
- When Gumball and Darwin see Anton reincarnate in his home, their minds are literally blown.
- When their first attempt at making an Anton with the toaster results in a burnt one:
Darwin: He deserves a righteous farewell.
(cut to the trashcan)
Darwin and Gumball: (Ant-1 is tossed into the trash) Bye! (trashcan is closed)
- At the beginning of the episode, when Gumball is about to beat a game at the arcade and sweat starts gushing out of his armpits like in "The Coach", Darwin puts his hands over Gumball's armpits to block it, which causes the sweat to come out of his nose, then his ears, then his nipples.
- Gumball makes Richard sign away his position of man of the house. This causes Richard to slowly dress more and more feminine, including make-up, a jacket, and a wig as well as act like a stereotypical woman.
- Anais's response to Zach's Split Personality Takeover.
Nicole: We need to get rid of this "Zach". Permanently.
Anais: (inside of a boot) One step ahead of you. (pulls a baseball bat out of the boot, whispers) I knew this day would come.
Nicole: By changing his name to Gumball. At the town hall.
Anais: (laughs nervously) Yeah that's what I—-that's what I meant!
- Zach is taking over Gumball's memories, but Darwin and Gumball both agree that he can keep the kiss from "The Pressure".
- When Zach puts up a false police warrant saying that the Wattersons' car is stolen, the police not only redundantly put up a spike strip in front of their roadblock, they put both on a street that the Wattersons weren't even going to go down. After they escape, the police drive over the spike strip.
- During the Battle in the Center of the Mind Zach is obliterated from Gumball's memory in a flash of light—Smash Cut to real world Gumball farting.
- One of two stiffly-animated crowd members from "The Sweaters" discovers that he can actually move, but ends up angering the crowd because he's "different" and ends up carrying his second friend out of the stadium.
- The flashback of how Gumball and Darwin ended up wearing body-painted clothes: Richard mistakes the dishwasher for the washing machine and vice-versa.
- Principal Brown found out they painted on their clothes because of the pixellated portions of their bodies... which for Darwin, for some reason, is his feet. Again.
- Said clothes result in Principal Brown telling Gumball and Darwin that they can't walk around school looking like they went to sleep at an art student's party.
- Principal Brown dressing like a student and trying to act cool so he can be Gumball and Darwin's friend.
Principal Brown: Swag! Rap music!... Piercings! YOLO! Hashtag! MP3! Tweets! Selfies! Skinny jeans! L-O-
(Mr. Small smacks him in the face with a lunch tray)
Mr. Small: I'm sorry, Principal Brown, but you look like such a jerk that even a granola-crunching pacifist like me had to something about it.
Principal Brown: That is so refrigerated! You guys are riddled with disease! We should very much be suspended in an exterior environment.
Gumball: Did you mean to tell us that that's cool, we're sick, and we should totally hang out together?
Principal Brown: For sure! Uh, izzle.
- The awkward slumber party Principal Brown has with Gumball and Darwin, where he tries to tell them stories about his relationship with Miss Simian and realizes how inappropriate that is mid-sentence, followed by him throwing himself out the window and landing in a dumpster.
- Gumball pulling a pair of high heels out of Principal Brown's safe and concluding that that's how a furry slug with no visible feet can make noise while he walks.
- Principal Brown is trying to blow up the school, and Mr. Small eagerly tries to block his path a la the protesters of the Tienanmen Square Massacre, even grabbing some grocery bags to look more like Tank Man, but ends up getting walked on like the Extreme Doormat he is.
- The other teachers admitting their lies: Miss Simian lied about her age to get the job, Mr. Small isn't a U.S. citizen, and the Coach is not a woman... who can say she's never lied on her resume.
- Gumball wakes up in to music playing. He wants to sleep more but really likes the song. So he whines about it and keeps his really sour look on his face while break-dancing.
- The Orange Woman accusing Richard of being a bad father for allegedly leaving Gumball and Darwin homeless — while she shoves her son in the trunk and buckles up her groceries.
- The Running Gag of Anais facepalming with the 'high five' glove.
- Nicole's idea of a scary story for adults is "The tale of the 16 hour shift, with no paid overtime!".
- Richard thinking the engine is the "front hood" of the car...and a good place to store marshmallows.
- When Nicole states she only gets five days off a year, we get a montage of what happened on the other four days:
- On Christmas, Richard and Anais decorated the house in whipped cream instead of fake snow—and Nicole came home and slipped on it.
- On the Fourth of July, Richard lit some fireworks, which blew up the backyard.
- The day Granny Jojo came to visit, she made Nicole follow an incredibly strict schedule for driving her around town.
- On Halloween, Richard tried to scare Nicole with a wolf mask. Her reaction was to karate kick him down the stars. When she realized her mistake, Richard cries out, "There's some liquid in my lungs!".
- "If I was after brains, I certainly wouldn't be chasing after you people, would I?"
- The entire episode can be considered one, since it's all one big lampshade hung over the fact that Molly was phased out of the show after the first season. Apparently the universe decided that she was a mistake because she was too boring, so it sent her into a blank void and wiped everyone's memory of her.
- Darwin describing the cheerleaders:
Darwin: It's not that I'm not supportive but... they're kind of a trainwreck. That, like, a truck crashed into... and then the whole thing sunk into a lake... and managed to catch fire... and exploded.
(cut to cheerleaders trying to do a pyramid, and crashing.)
Darwin: Alright, I guess they didn't explode, but you have to admit that-*BOOM*
- After finding out Mr. Small was right about Molly, Darwin and Gumball come to tell him he's not crazy...and find he's wearing only a loin cloth, tinfoil hat, and has eyes drawn on his chest.
Mister Small: The six nipple-eyes see the past, the present, and the future.
Gumball: ... (under breath to Darwin) Six?
- Among the terrible ideas relegated to the void are jorts, the mullet, Rob (the blue cyclops background character who Gumball and Darwin couldn't remember in "The Pony"), disco, 1980s hairspray, the Microsoft Word paper clip assistant, and The Crazy Frog ringtone mascot.
Gumball: Run him over.
- Then Crazy Frog gets chased down by two dodos. They wince, followed by Mr. Small saying this:
Mr. Small: Ooh, that won't be necessary, he's gone the way of the dodo.
- Then Crazy Frog gets chased down by two dodos. They wince, followed by Mr. Small saying this:
- Gumball and Darwin break the news to Rocky about his father being in the hospital by stuffing a note in a brownie and feeding it to him.
- Mrs. Robinson deals with her husband being laid up in the hospital by going on an island vacation — and nearly marrying a man she met during that vacation.
- One of Tobias's many failed attempts to hits on girls in resulted in Teri splashing her glass of water in his face, but he insists it was because "She knew I was hot." So Penny takes her glass and dumps it out on the floor.
- "Say hello to DARKWIN!"
- Tobias talks about Clayton dating sextuplets all at once. Gumball deadpans back that it "Sounds complicated. And repetitive."
- When Masami gets a brain freeze, she starts snowing and Idaho catches it on his tongue before realizing where the snow came from and trying to scrape it off.
- The Sheriff using his taser on a kiddie ride, causing it to go incredibly fast. When it stops, Gumball is stuck in motion blur and Rosie walks by calling them wusses. This is followed by a montage of the Sheriff using the taser on various objects:
- A vending machine, which starts spitting out cans until the window breaks and it starts launching them like rockets.
- Bobert, three times; the first two times he dances, the third time he enters defense mode.
- Two inflatable men, which causes them to catch fire.
- An ATM, which sets off its alarm while it sprays a green ooze on them.
- Another taser, causing them to explode.
- The Sheriff scares people with his sirens. They jump so fast they disappear, but after about the dozenth one they all start coming down at once.
- The Sheriff, Darwin, and Gumball get Mrs. Parham off the road using a PIT maneuver. She was driving an ice cream truck. They were driving a baby carriage.
- The Sheriff's boss is a bucket of fried chicken. According to the video description on the show's website, "Chicken Bucket" is his name.
- Teri's latest hypochondriac fit has the Band-Aid nurse prescribing two weeks off from school and some heavy sedatives—for herself—and telling Teri to leave so she can crawl under the desk and re-evaluate her career choices.
- When the nurse tells Darwin to hold in his sneeze, he does so and it causes his head to inflate before going to his feet and causing his shoes to burst (his shoes come back when he goes back and comes offscreen).
- Mr. Small bursting through the door when Gumball suggests an alternate approach to curing Darwin of his sneezing.
- The Take That against holistic medicine: the "unbreakable" crystal breaking, Mr. Small telling Gumball that the magazine he ordered the crystal from shut down after two editions, the ridiculous costume he wears, and the line about how holistic medicine was started by near-criminal bozos.
- Mr. Small trying to cure Darwin through acupuncture, then when Darwin is clearly in agony Gumball comments that on a scale of 1 to 10, he scores a "Somebody please finish me off, every second of my tragic existence is pure agony". Darwin sneezes, causing the pins to fly into Gumball and Mr. Small, then Gumball adds "I can smell dancing and taste purple" while Mr. Small says something in a foreign language, saying that he meant to moan, and collapsing.
- At the start of the episode, Gumball had it all planned to land a perfect blow against Darwin during their pillow fight... only for Anais to attack Gumball from behind before Gumball will execute it.
- Nicole doing the same as Gumball while planning to throw the two from their room down to school bus, only for Anais to inform her that the two already got to the bus even before Nicole finished thinking her plan.
- The Bananas being poor victims of Darwin's sneezing and getting blown all the way to the Great Wall of China.
- "We put our Moms in a cage! Three go in, one comes out! Three go in, one comes ouuuu..."
- The sheer amount of abuse Banana Joe's mother goes through puts Anton's death montage from "The Recipe" to shame.
Banana Joe: You're the super-est, mom. At least in my heart.
Mrs. Banana: (slurring) No, you're the super-est mom!
- At the end of the episode, Tobias pulls out the card he was making for his mom at the beginning of the episode... then tears it apart in front of her because she got showed up by Nicole again.
- Richard revealing that he's been behind the door all night just to make that dramatic entry (and not once went to the bathroom, and now looks as if he can't hold it in any longer).
- Richard's reading Nicole's card after being asked if Mom forced him to lock the computer, including the threat that he'll be sleeping on the couch if he doesn't read the card.
- Richard yelling at Gumball and Darwin for burning him, choking him, and feeding him an undercooked steak (the last of which was actually bait for the dogs).
- Nicole paying Larry for the computer and the damages done to the store with a cracker.
- Gumball gripes about having to take out the trash on Elmore Plus, and then asks Darwin whether he should add "YOLO". Darwin then tells him to "have some self respect"...before saying that he should add "#swag" instead.
OMG GOT 2 SL@V3 AWAY TKING OUT THE TRASH . . . SMH
- Gumball and Darwin draw portraits of each other, but Gumball is confused as to why his has a horrifying clown in the background. So he turns around... Turns out the clown is a telegram delivery man—Nicole apparently really wanted to make an impression with her reminder to take the trash out.
- Gumball meows while chasing a laser on 4 legs with orchestra music playing... then claws his face snarling at the laser and jumping out the window while playing a cat scream.
- Gumball and Darwin performing a rhythmic melody with everything around the house, including Gumball armpit-farting. Then the microwave's clock hits 5, and the final noise heard afterwards is his armpit fart.
- The end where the entire family eats trash for dinner after Gumball throws the groceries on the garbage truck.
- The way Penny's shell cracks in the first place - she improvises a kiss between her and Gumball in a school play, and Gumball takes the invitation - but is so nervous he ends up headbutting her by accident.
- Richard loudly narrating what's going on in front of him in 100% earnestness somehow fails to get annoying...for some viewers.
- Gumball doesn't go along with Richard's convoluted plan for the family members to share food to make sure no one gets jealous of the one sitting next to the other.
NICOLE! THE PLAN ISN'T WORKING! THE CHAIN IS BROKEN! WE'RE LOSING CALORIES!
- Penny's minotaur-like form stops Jackie and Harold (Tobias and Rachel's parents) in traffic. When Jackie screams for Harold to do something, Harold assures his wife he'll take care of it — and runs out the car, leaving her alone with the creature.
- Mr. Fitzgerald, shocked at Penny being outside of her shell, inadvertently says things that are hurting her feelings. Gumball tries to fix his sentences.
Mr. Fitzgerald: What have you done? You've turned her into a freak!
Gumball: A freak…ishly beautiful young lady. (Laughs nervously)
Mr. Fitzgerald: She looks like a pig...
Gumball: -ture of beauty. Ha ha, absolutely!
Mr. Fitzgerald: You turned my daughter into a monster!
Gumball: -truck! ...Of prettiness?
- Gumball bursting into what looks like Banana Joe taking a bath, but it turns out to be his dad without his mustache, as when he puts it back on, his high-pitched screaming goes down a few octaves.
- Gumball walks into Banana Joe's room as he's watching an Internet video of a peeled orange being spread apart, then Gumball quickly closes the door again.
- After giving Penny's dad a well-deserved talking down for how he'd been treating his daughter, Mr. Fitzgerald apologizes. Gumball then tells him not to beat himself up over it either because "Parenting is hard!", and he's still yelling like when he was calling him out.
- Nicole gets shot by the pest controller's tranq dart (paralyzing one half of her body, making her look and sound like she had a stroke), so she tells Darwin and Anais to "teach him a lesson", which they do by grabbing her limp arm and leg, stretching them out like noodles, and slapping him in the face with them.
- Principal Brown gives himself a wax job for Miss Simian, only for his hair to grow back immediately... and Gumball and Darwin seeing everything because Principal Brown was not alone in his office.
- Gumball and Darwin's horrified reaction to Principal Brown's temporarily hairless body: Gumball states that he was standing there "long enough for curiosity to turn to regret" and instead of going on a date with Penny over the weekend, he's going to stay home and bleach his eyeballs.
- Gumball states that Chris Morris is so old, he should be classified as a mineral.
- While it is also very unsettling, Darwin talking to Chris Morris in the park is pretty funny: he talks about his fears of Gumball not having time for him anymore after the events of "The Shell," which goes from calmly explaining the situation to going Laughing Mad to rocking back and forth in catatonia to angrily telling off Chris Morris to sobbing to accepting the fact that Gumball deserves to be happy and that Darwin should accept it.
- The Good Times Montage in its entirety, including the in-your-face sudden close ups of Principal Brown's hair.
- Gumball's strings of Little "No"s to a full-blown Big "NO!" after he realized that he and Darwin kissed and snuggled Principal Brown's hair instead of Chris Morris.
- Gumball tries to get into the school by carving out a circle in a window and using Darwin's mouth like a suction cup to remove it. Somehow, the rest of the wall falls out in a semicircle and narrowly avoids falling on them.
- When Gumball and Darwin are trying to chase Chris Morris, they find that he's so slow that walking at normal speed will make it impossible to catch him, so they have to walk at "90s Internet slow", with appropriate visuals.
- The twist on Outrun the Fireball when Gumball and Darwin jump at the wrong time, fall on the their faces, and get burned (non-fatally) when Chris Morris fills the chemistry lab with gas and plugs a broken lamp so it will blow up.
- The Donut Sheriff puckering up when Miss Simian yells, "Romance now!"
- Penny unzips her bag and sees Darwin was inside it, reading her diary. She invites him talk about it with her and Gumball at lunch, then zips the bag up and carries him off before he can say anything.
- The ridiculous face and muscle-bound pose Darwin took every time he did something bad to Penny during the basketball game.
Defense! (stomp, stomp) Defense!
- Gumball's weird laugh and the face he makes. "Ah. Ah. Aaaaaaahhhhhhh. Ah. Ah. Aaaaaaaahhhh."
- Darwin and Gumball have a "bro wedding", which was Penny's idea.
- The Black Comedy Burst of the Fitzgerald house on fire after the heartwarming ending of Gumball and Darwin's bro wedding.
- Darwin getting so fed up with Gumball blathering about him and Penny that he begins eating his own face.
- Gumball's message to Penny that she's cool gets passed around to everyone in class telephone game-style and ends with Carmen telling Penny that Gumball said she was fat, causing Penny to shapeshift into her gorgon form and hiss at him. Then Gumball gets pelted with trash, papers, books, and Banana Joe (as in someone just threw him at Gumball).
- Richard got banned from Elmore's chicken restaurant because he took the "All You Can Eat" gimmick literally and ate a chair.
- Carrie's reunion with her dad after he returned back to normal from being the Snatcher (and died by trying to hug her ethereal form and falling down through the window from the third floor of Gumball's house) being ruined immediately when Gumball talks about how it's like his relationship with Penny (even though it was implied that they broke up over the failed telephone game message, it can be hand-waved that the curse reversed their break-up). Everyone groans.
- Richard disapproves of Granny Jojo seeing Louie because he believes his father could be coming back from buying milk. He left 42 years ago. Everyone else's reactions sell it, especially Granny Jojo's, who looks incredibly nervous.
- Gumball thinking seeing Granny Jojo prettied up (to use the term loosely) is just a bad dream... until Anais and Darwin say it's not.
- The kids make a Rube Goldberg Device to get Granny Jojo out the window of their room, which only launches her into the ceiling.
- When the kids attempt to get Granny Jojo out with a Bedsheet Ladder it ends up being too short, so they use her girdle. Darwin can't believe how big it is, Gumball can't believe that he was touching it with his bare hands, and Anais can't believe that she's genetically predestined to wear one someday.
- When Richard blocks Jojo and Louie's kiss, his hand gets covered in slobber and he wipes it on Gumball's face. Gumball declares "Well, that's that face ruined." then pulls off his head and grows another one.
- With everyone being pissed at having a bad day, Richard tells Gumball to make dinner because he's "too angry to make a valid excuse". Gumball then pushes it to Darwin who questions why he has to do it. Gumball replies by opening his mouth like a◊ Predator and hissing at him.◊
- Nicole being so tense that when she attempts to dial the phone, she pushes the keys with enough force to break them out.
- During Nicole's flashback, when Larry charges her $100 for a tune-up, she pounds the hood and breaks a headlight causing it to go up to $200, then every time she yells something breaks and the price goes up until it reaches $750, leading to her harsh "Reason You Suck" Speech toward Larry (which she has no choice but to unleash on him since he's the only other person around):
Nicole: (head grows, voice deepens) You are a worm! You're a thieving, bottom-feeding, money-grubbing crook! People like you are squeezing the very last cent out of hard-working families! You're the reason ice caps are melting and baby polar bears are homeless! (returns to normal) I think that's all there was. Here. (gives him the money)
Larry: Uh, would you like to add a tip?
Nicole: Sure, a little extra 12%? (inhales, becomes angry again) You're a worthless maggot, a pointless little—
- When it returns to the Watterson household it looks like the camera is zoomed in on Nicole's face, when in actuality her head has now grown to massive size and Richard is using the coffee table to push her back.
- Larry's explanation as to why he can't sell Richard more food:
Larry: Sir, please! You just ingested 12,000 calories an hour ago! To burn that off, you'll literally have to catch fire.
- Gumball being so hungry that he begins to digest himself; as in, a black hole forms in his stomach and begins sucking his head in.
- Darwin being so hungry that he can't do Meat-O-Vision right, so he sees Gumball as a purse.
- When the Wattersons attempt to drive the car after Larry quits, they find that the gas has been siphoned and everything holding it together is also gone, so it falls apart and a bunch of people come by to steal its parts. Then they drive an imaginary car.
- Jackie (Tobias' mom) emerging from the wrecked van, clacking bottles on her fingers a la Luther from The Warriors with her Henpecked Husband Harold on a leash and barking like a dognote .
- Mr. Small asking the Wattersons if they've taken any antibiotics, because if he's going to eat others, then the meat has to be organic and free of anything unnatural.
- The way Nicole dispatches Leslie: she bites off part of his goddamn face and swings him by the neck so she can knock out Carmen's dad.
- Richard is so depressed in January that he takes out the trash and throws himself in the can with it.
- Gumball pitching "Dependence Day" as a holiday and Anais, in a sarcastic Simpleton Voice, replies, "Yay! Where we all celebrate our lack of freedom!"
- Darwin turning into an early 1930s cartoon character (read: black and white, with wide, pie eyes and Mickey Mouse gloves, and perpetually bouncingnote ) because of how depressing January is.
- "You know metalheads: they pretend to be hardcore, but they're just hippies who like leather."
- Rocky telling the kids about the differences between grindcore, black metal, and Viking metal...when he's supposed to be driving the bus.
- Mr. Small is so depressed that he forgot how to smile, so he had to force himself to smile with tape. When he rips the tape off, it also rips off the white part of his head revealing a primate-like face underneath.
- Principal Brown tries to hibernate until spring in Miss Simian's desk, but he finds that he doesn't hibernate. Much like Gumball not originally knowing his own real name, Principal Brown doesn't know what his own species is.
- Richard creating the Sluzzlewurst in the same fashion as Usagi/Serena does when she transforms into Sailor Moon.
- Richard's credit card being sucked dry (literally) due to all the groceries he bought for the Sluzzle Tag feast.
- Richard's Sluzzlewurst is so fattening, it causes Anais to sweat butter.
- The poorly-animated Sluzzle Tag special has two skeletons saying, "Jolly Sluzzle Ta—" then ends with a message that, because animation is a very lengthy process and Sluzzle Tag is a recent holiday, the very short scene we just saw was all the network had time to make.
- When Gumball realizes he's going to disappoint everyone when they realize Sluzzle Dude doesn't exist, he imagines the planet exploding, but Anais points out that everyone will just hate him and it cuts to a live-action clay Gumball being pounded flat.
- Gumball and Banana Joe trick Darwin into viewing Joe's butt through a microscope. Darwin is so horrified that he sees butts everywhere; Leslie's face, the faces on a poster of a bride and groom, a cropped image of the hands in The Creation of Adam, and Ms. Simian's face, but Darwin decides that the latter is an improvement.
- Tobias hits on Penny by calling his dance "The Butterfly Effect." Penny comments that it goes great with the dance she came up with, where she waves each hand in front of Tobias like she's holding something. Tobias asks what it's called and Penny answers "The Bug Spray".
- How Miss Simian demonstrates the actual Butterfly Effect in action: she flicks her chalk into the ceiling fan, which ultimately results in Tobias getting hit over the head by the window.
- Gumball and Darwin react to the butterfly coming out of its chrysalis as if it was an expectant mother going into labor.
- While it also crosses into Nightmare Fuel, the appearance of the titular butterfly is just offsetting enough to be hilarious... Not to mention the random squeaky noises it makes.
- Gumball has a... warped definition of the term "baby boomer":
Gumball: (in regards to the butterfly) Dude! How can something this cute be responsible for something as bad as a tornado? It's like blaming baby boomers for the state of the world! How can babies going boom ruin the economy?
- Rocky tries to escape the Crocodile Woman who mistook his falling next to her on one knee with a bagel in his hand as a marriage proposal.
- During "Elmore Help Desk", Karen answers the Crocodile Woman's question to Mr. Robinson.
- The epic and overly long domino fall of everyone in Elmore, ending with Hector falling on top of Sussie's dad and getting him caught in his nose.
- The episode took the most well known example of the Butterfly Effect (a butterfly flapping its wings causing a tornado) and ultimately played that example straight.
- Gumball calling the man on the box of healthy cereal a "cowboy goat with high blood pressure."
- Gumball and Darwin going on a sugar rush and suddenly understanding everything in the world—except the meaning of life—then come out of the rush in a park where Gumball is dressed in a ballerina outfit with combat boots while Darwin is handcuffed to a lamppost with a tribal tramp stamp on his butt.
- Larry tells Gumball and Darwin his daily schedule when they ask him about the meaning of life. He soon goes mad from the revelation when he realizes how boring it is and proceeds to leave his post, steal his boss's money, kiss his girlfriend Karen and his boss (the teddy bear boss who beat up Richard and bullies Larry as seen in "The Refund") before throwing him in the cash register, steal Mrs. Robinson's car, drive to the beach, and walk into the ocean. All this while manically repeating his daily schedule.
- Nicole about the meaning of life: CRUSH YOUR ENEMIES! SEE THEM DRIVEN BEFORE YOU! AND HEAR THE LAMENTATION OF THEIR WOMEN!
- Anais joining her father in blissful ignorance (putting on a homemade toga and eating chicken nuggets and fries on the couch) after Gumball and Darwin bombard her with disturbing questions after Anais tells them that the meaning of life for her is a quest for knowledge.
- The Forest of Doom's creatures and their song.
"'Cause the meaning of life is to eat or be-"
- The Sun and planets singing a cheery song about how life doesn't matter in the grand scale of things, with Gumball dismissing the song because he can't hear it and the planets are so far slow that by the time they finish, it will have been 4.75 billion years and the sun will have exploded — which it does. Made better by the bizarre fact that all of the planets have British accents like the moon and Saturn did in "The Debt".
- Sussie (the same one said to belong in a freak show by Miss Simian in "The Bet", was such an outcast that her parents had to pay Gumball and Darwin to stay at her birthday party in "The Pony", and is said to have Childhood Brain Damage after being dropped on her head in "The Origins") gives a surprisingly profound answer on what the meaning of life is to the shock of a dejected Gumball and Darwin...before continuing to throw mayonnaise to feed pigeons.
- When Gumball accidentally ignites a computer in the school library, he decides to use a soda to douse the flames, only causing the flames to grow bigger. He then tries to use the fire extinguisher...by smashing it on the flaming computer, promptly causing it to explode. All the while both him and Darwin are quietly screaming.
- Alan's face every time he does something nice or noble.
Darwin: What? You said "don't forget any details.''
- Gumball tries to frame Alan by having Darwin draw his "noble expression" on a non-sentient green balloon, and notes him not to forget any detail, doing an impression of him. Darwin draws Gumball doing said impression on the balloon, complete with the wire fence behind him.
- Gumball's justifying wanting to prove Alan is prone to being bad by saying that it's for science, the people deserve to know and that he has nothing else to do today.
- When his first attempt to break Alan fails, Gumball shouts that he will eventually succeed because if he doesn't, he'll have to ask very important questions about himself.
- One of Gumball's attempts to break Alan is to kidnap his parents and sell them to a creepy clown (the same one Nicole hired as a messenger in "The Procrastinators"), then video tape them being turned into balloon animals and show it to him. To both his and Darwin's horror, Alan takes it in stride.
Gumball:...Am I going too far?Darwin: No no no. You went too far about seven hours ago. Now, you're going to prison.
- Gumball's sudden Heel Realization, much to Darwin's frustration.
Gumball: HOW CAN YOU NOT BE ANGRY AFTER ALL I'VE DONE TO YOU?! [Gasps] After all I've done to you...I made you lose all your friends, your girlfriend, sold your parents. Even worse, I ate your last meatball — all of this to prove you can be just as bad as me? Could it be that… that… that I was wrong?Darwin: IS THAT EVEN A QUESTION?!
- After seeing no benefit from trying to be nice, Gumball decides against helping a choking man. Darwin convinces him to do it with him, saying the man might win the lottery, they receive some of the money, and use it to live in a house made of crystal, have their own jetpacks, wear clothes made of white tiger skin and be able to eat Unobtainium. Then it actually happens, but they instantly get bored with it and return to their normal lives when they were content to complaining about everything instead of getting whatever they want without some kind of obstacle.
- Gumball and Darwin eat Anais's cupcakes only to find that they were actually lemons iced with baking soda, which cause their faces to shoot out masses of foam.
- Before they ate their decoys, Richard's were made of toilet paper and Nicole's were made of soap.
- The Doughnut Sheriff thinking "police" is two words instead of one.
- In response to Darwin weakly hitting him on the head with a frying pan: "What are you, vegan?!"
- Gumball's metaphor that gets so out of hand even he doesn't get it.
Gumball: You know, you're the kinda guy who likes to take his boat out, all his sails on fire, a burger in each hand, a cape on his back, ready for Valhalla!Darwin: What's that supposed to mean?
Gumball: I don't know. I went too far with the metaphor and lost the plot myself.
- Ricard accidentally knocks Banana Bob out while messing with binoculars and he gets rushed to the hospital. Doughnut Sheriff gets in Richard's face and asks who caused it, then he tries to run away and runs through a fence and into a house.
- Gumball sternly tells Nicole no to going to the mall, followed by Nicole's Fireball Eyeballs and Gumball immediately saying okay.
- Gumball tries to sabotage the car, which only makes it run faster, then when Nicole tries to pull out later at the mall the engine gets launched out.
- "Keep your clothes on!"
- Gumball's failed attempt at getting the police to close the mall.
Doughnut Sheriff: This is a hoax call, isn't it?
Gumball: How do you know?
(zoom out to reveal Doughnut Sheriff standing directly behind Gumball)
Doughnut Sheriff: 'Cause I'm right next to you, kid. And for the record, you actually need to dial before you get through.
- Mr. Small's Anvilicious safety video at the beginning ("Watch Out, Little Teddy"), which eventually slows down to a crawl near the end, followed by everyone in class having the same (realistically-detailed) horrified face.
- Mr Small's reaction to the video was not only letting the class (who were equally horrified) leave school early, but also to huddle in a dark corner of the room with a trashcan over his head.
- If you look closely during the safety video, you can catch a split-second shot of an animator's hand in the frame.
- The video says to be careful of strangers, using an old woman beating up the Teddy after he held her while helping her cross the road. Learning from this, Darwin decides to injure an old lady to keep Gumball safe. Twice. Even more funny is the second time where afterward Gumball apologises for Darwin; the lady responds that it was okay!
- Darwin turning on the child filter for the entire household, which removes Gumball's hip area as well as muting even "mom-sanctioned" curse words. Gumball, frustrated, then stomps Darwin's foot, who proclaims "OW, YOU-" before being cut-off with a clip show consisting of real life images (of a mother and baby, a farmer making bales with a pitchfork, a young donkey and a clown* ) while a calm piano piece is playing in the background.
- The Wattersons somehow eating bowls of actual molecules after Darwin becomes convinced that all food is unhealthy. They also eat iron filings, which Richard grinds between his teeth creating sparks.
- Darwin actually calling the characters on the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote-esque cartoon to tell them that the cartoon they're in is too violent.
- When Darwin chains the other Wattersons to the kitchen chairs, they motion for Gumball to get the key to their chains off the counter using his mouth. Instead, he grabs the cactus right next to it and chews it into a key.
- Richard disguising himself as a woman in order to distract one of the guards outside the town hall, even though there was no need for him to dress like that since he knocks the guard out within seconds with a fire hydrant anyway. The guard, upon seeing Richard, has no idea what to think.
- When Nicole is fighting Darwin's security guards, her attempts to hit them are censored resulting in 60s Batman-style sound cards appearing followed by them being knocked out.
- Nicole, Richard, and Anais admitting that they willingly went along with Darwin's fanatical safety measures because he's really cute and giving their best impressions of him spouting the phrases of a dictator in the most squeaky, cute voices they could muster.
- Gumball's audition for the Presidents' Day play.
- Gumball checking Leslie, Banana Joe, and Miss Simian for tattoos linking them to a possible secret society at Elmore Junior High.
- Anton talks about the movie Gumball hasn't seen yet, so Gumball eats Anton.
- The entire phone call between Gumball and Penny:
- Penny teases Gumball about spoilers, only for her dad to chime in and blurt out one himself. When Penny points out he's listening in on their phone call, Patrick pretends to have been disconnected, yet still keeps dropping more spoilers.
- The phone call was also being listened in on by Gumball's entire family, Penny's little sister, and, apparently, an NSA agent—the last of whom offhandedly admits to eavesdropping along with everyone else, and no one comments on his presence.
- Anais gets pissed of when she finds out even Penny's little sister got to see The Screamening when she didn't.
- Gumball shouting, "We're lucky Larry's IQ is as small as his paycheck!" while hiding from Larry when he catches them allegedly committing movie piracy.
- Darwin and Gumball make the dozen of duplicates of themselves created by time travel disappear by pointing out they shouldn't exist, then the proto-humans in the background suddenly start bowing down and worshiping them.
- Gumball remarking that the only thing he remembers about Miss Simian lecturing him and Darwin about being late was that the top of her head looks like Mt. Fuji.
- The various ways Gumball and Darwin's time traveling cause their classmates to change appearances:
- When Gumball and Darwin scare off the first bipedal ape, the class all turn into quadrupeds.
- After Gumball and Darwin's duplicates all disappear, the class all look like them (Sarah, Leslie and Masami look like Gumball and Carrie, Teri, Carmen and Tobias look like Darwin) because they're now the genetic ancestors of all life on Earth.
- After returning from the future where they're revered as gods, everyone is fat.
- Everyone is angry and Sarah and Tobias are yelling in German, implying that they live in a world where the Germans won World War II and took over.
- Everyone has two heads.
- Everyone is giant.
- The world is upside down. Gumball and Darwin are the only ones affected by gravity.
- Everyone has Nested Mouths.
- When it looks like everything is normal, it turns out that Gumball and Darwin now have vertical eyelids. Gumball decides he can live with it and the episode ends.
- When Nicole assumes Gumball and Darwin have been stealing all the stuff around the house, she calls them out into the hall from their room, only to immediately tell them to go back into their room.
- Darwin and Gumball try to tell the eponymous "nobody" that there are plenty of roles for him to take up, but all the ones they can think of are taken by someone who walks across the screen a second later. When they start suggesting a bunch of jobs Larry occupies, he walks by as each is mentioned with appropriate attire, then a whole mob of Larry start crossing the screen simultaneously.
- Gumball and Darwin successfully jump a fence with a lawnmower that's going way too slow to actually make the jump. It also explodes.
- Gumball's face when he first tells the other members of the family that he's in a bad mood, which shows up several more times throughout the episode, and he's initially so sour that he can't give a sarcastic comeback to Nicole asking him why.
- After Gumball inadvertently wishes everyone would leave, he goes into the living room, still stuck between his mattress and his bedspread so he could technically say he never got out of bed.
- To see if everyone's really gone, Gumball tries to create a chain reaction by knocking a lamp over, which knocks over the TV, which then knocks over a bookshelf, but a rubber ball and a vase fall off the shelf, the vase bounces off the ball and back on the shelf, straightening it and the TV and knocking the lamp against Gumball's head.
- When Gumball fakes being in pain he asks for Nicole to give him a kiss, then stretches his mouth out and kisses himself Uncle Grandpa-style.
- Gumball builds a metropolis out of building blocks and destroys it, then gets a figure in his foot, something pretty much every LEGO owner ever has experienced at least once, and flushes it down the toilet, only for it to not go down.
- Gumball trying to get over his bad mood by watching TV. The first thing he watches is a news report about an extremely poisonous lake, followed by a weather report about an upcoming acid rain and smog storm, a documentary about a rare species of frog that gets killed, and a shampoo commercial that's a big Take That against the obsession with unattainable beauty and how most women featured in the media are digitally altered to achieve this.
- Gumball's musical sequence, which starts off as a Musical Pastiche of Pharrell Williams' "Happy" in which he tries to cheer himself up with various activities only to find a drawback to each of them, then he gets angry again and the song takes a massive turn in mood.
- When trying to make a meatloaf, Gumball states that onions can make you cry unless you make them cry first, then attempts to karate chop the onion only for it to bounce forward and knock him down. He doesn't have any meat, so he beats the bag of bread crumbs with the rolling pin and pours the whole thing in the pan with the unpeeled onion, then adds a raw egg and mint toothpaste as a substitute for mint leaves. Because the recipe serves five people, he puts it on five plates at the table and impersonates the other Wattersons.
Gumball (normal voice): So, how you guys like my loaf-loaf?
Gumball (as Nicole): Oh, it's nice. It's like all the flavors collide and explode in your mouth, giving a distinctive, uh... burnt tire taste.
Gumball (as Darwin): Dude, I love what you did with the onions! (burps) And it was great to taste them again!
Gumball (as Anais): I would say we were gonna get food poisoning, but there's no way this counts as food.
Gumball (as Richard): Yeah, it's disgusting, but you see, food is like... food. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.
Gumball (as Nicole): So, Gumball, how was your day?
Gumball (grumpy voice): Everything was just peachy. I've done fine in spite of all you ditching me. In case you didn't notice, that was sarcasm.
Gumball (as Richard): Nice. Seriously though, is there any more loaf-loaf?
- When Gumball goes outside to the now-empty Elmore, he asks around for Mr. Robinson, Principal Brown and Alan, then rescinds that last comment saying that he'd rather it'd be just him than him and Alan.
Alan: (gasps) Cold...
- After finding that everyone's gone because of his wish, Gumball's bitterness begins acting on its own and makes him declare that he hates Elmore and that he also hates puppies, cupcakes and rainbows. When it begins affecting his view of the world, he sees that Joyful Burger is now Misery Burger, a cereal on a billboard is now Captain Crud, and the economy has collapsed, then he states that the third isn't much of a surprise.
- When the black cloud begins consuming Elmore, Gumball asks why should he be afraid of it, then it grabs his face with its tendrils to show that it is not all bark and no bite.
- Although creepy as hell, there's something morbidly funny about Gumball running from the giant black cloud, waiting to cross the road until the stoplight says to, then the light changing to suddenly say "NO ESCAPE".
- When the cloud enters the Watterson house, it turns the unicorn painting into a hellish-looking one, turns the family portrait into one painted similar to "The Scream", and the painting of a sad clown is unchanged.
Gumball: Actually, to be honest, that clown was always scary.
- The revelation that Gumball's wish for everyone to go away was all a hallucination brought on by his bad mood: Gumball was in the bathroom while Nicole was taking a shower, Gumball kicked the Frog Kid when he was blindly swinging for everyone to get out of the way, Gumball caused a traffic jam when he called out for someone, Alan heard what Gumball said about how he didn't want to be the only other person in the world with him, Banana Bob saw Gumball fighting with himself in the yard, and Gumball was actually squeezing Richard's man boobs when Gumball was trying to find a way out of the darkness of his mood.
- Nicole's formal outfit inspection:
- She tells Richard to change out of his wedding tux when she sees in the mirror (which wasn't there before, as Richard points out) that his suit is ripped in the back.
- Gumball misinterpreting Nicole's request for him to wear something respectable as wearing something that will get him respect, so he puts on a pimp outfit, and when Nicole tells him to change, he does a pimp strut until she tells him to walk normally.
- Darwin isn't wearing shoes (and his feet are pixelated, as if they're an offending body part that needs to be censored). Nicole says she asked him to look natural, not au naturale.
- Anais is in a mourning gown. When she refuses to change into something else, Nicole makes a violent gesture.
- When the row of black hairs on Gumball's head won't stay down, he complains (it's like grooming a coconut) and Nicole does the same gesture again as she did to Anais. The hair itself straighten out of fear.
- Mrs. Parham's horrified flashback of Richard and Gumball's antics in "The Hero" (Richard's hip-hop dancing in front of the grocery store), "The Authority" (Gumball walking with a split head from Nicole and Granny Jojo arguing over whether or not he should cross the street) and "The Law" (The Doughnut Sheriff playing along with Gumball's request to treat him like a criminal by pretending to handcuff him and load him in the back of his squad car). After that, she's left paralyzed and Nicole drags her into the house. Jaw Drop at its finest.
- When Richard opens and drinks out of a can of soda Nicole whispers that it's not for him, and it slowly drips out of his mouth back into the can. When Nicole tells him to pour a drink for Mrs. Parham, he pours the soda in her mouth and she almost throws up in her purse before finding the strength to swallow.
- When Nicole tells Richard to say something that someone unemployed would say, he has a conversation with himself where he fires himself and breaks down in tears.
- When Mrs. Parham gives Nicole a polite yet savage "Reason You Suck" Speech about her ruse to be her friend for social reasons and tells her to be who she really is, Nicole turns into a red demon and tries to attack her as Richard tries to pull her back and Mrs. Parham keeps her at bay with a chair, then it becomes a Funny Background Event to Anais and Billy's conversation. After the beginning of their musical number, Nicole has Mrs. Parham's head in her mouth and when Gumball tries to get her attention Nicole retorts that this isn't the first time he's seen her chew someone out. When they see that Anais and Billy have left, Nicole and Mrs. Parham get into a slapfight.
- When Nicole and Mrs. Parham's irreconcilable differences make it so that they haven't gone anywhere in the 15 minutes they've been in the car, Gumball decides to drive the car himself, but since he doesn't know how to operate it they have to run.
- The ending: Anais decides she's not compatible with Billy because he doesn't like Daisy the Donkey. When Mrs. Parham expresses relief that she doesn't have to pretend to like Nicole, the latter punches her out.
- Principal Brown telling Sussie to stop crying over Darwin's soulful slide whistle performance or he'll call the Coast Guard.
- Gumball, with an unsettlingly toothy grin, claiming that he's happy for Darwin on the inside, followed by Darwin opening Gumball vertically like a cello case, revealing him as a deep-voiced mass of fire yelling that he wants Darwin to crash and burn.
- Gumball robbing the duck mascot's large head and pants while the duck mascot is on the toilet (and the fact that the duck mascot looks the same without his costume, yet freaks out over being naked when his pants are taken).
- Gumball trying to figure out who's trying to sabotage Darwin's performance.
- His first suspect is Banana Joe, who hilariously, despite the insinuation of the camera work, is not the culprit due to evidence of Leslie's envy.
- Leslie firing darts from his flute, which suddenly sound like sniper fire and hit a wedge of cheese who passes out from having an extra hole in his chest.
- Gumball and Leslie getting over their insecurities and resolving to be happy for Darwin's sake, only to rejoice when Darwin botches his solo act due to stage fright.
- Richard thinking Swiss cheese is healthier because it has holes in it, which is why he tried to order 47 cheeseburgers with swiss cheese.
- Richard losing the family's money by throwing it into the ocean (or, in his words, transferring it to an offshore account), but not before turning it into gold (which causes the suitcase to sink).
- The family lapping up the tears they've shed because they're so broke, they can't afford the water bill.
- The repo men also being the prisoners that the Wattersons met when everyone in town went after them for their antics in season two's "The Finale" (and the prisoners who tried to hum a prison blues song on "The Extras").
- Richard only being able to get $100 for the family car because of how badly it depreciated when he went to "that new drive-thru convenience store" (which, according to surveillance footage, is just Richard crashing the car into the convenience store after he found a dollar in the glove compartment).
- Nicole has a talk with the man (actually a butter knife) repossessing their TV.
Nicole: That TV is broken.
Repo man: Is it?
(Nicole kicks the TV and the man offscreen)
Nicole It is now.
- During Gumball's "Imaginate" song:
- Nicole's reaction to Gumball turning into a sexy, young woman during his line, "Just imaginate cosmetic surgery to make you look 18".
- Anais saying, "And I imaginate you get hit by a bus!" then chastising herself for saying "imaginate" when she just told Gumball that "imaginate" wasn't a word.
- The bizarre Japanese commercial (done by guest animators from Montblanc Pictures Co. Ltd) for Joyful Burger after Nicole suggests that the family do the ad in another country.
- The universe glitching out and the animation becoming incredibly low-quality, to the point that it's just childish scribbles on paper and Post-It notes, as the family rushes to Joyful Burger to do the commercial. Gumball stays a crudely-drawn stick figure on a Post-It note after the family returns to normal when they sign the contract, until Larry shows Gumball how much the family will be paid and the episode ends with him back to normal in the commercial.
- The commercial itself is a hysterical melting pot of all the most awful stereotypes of commercials of the 80s and 90s, complete with idiotic outfits for the family and Darwin dressed in the same hip-hop gear he had on in "The Fraud" randomly beatboxing.
- Richard calling Principal Brown to tell the kids that they have the plague which is why they're not in school.
- Richard is so distant from his kids that he has difficulty remembering what they look like, so when he has an Imagine Spot with them in it they're all badly-drawn and off-voiced caricatures. When he tries to imagine them again they're drawn on-model, but their eyes and the shapes of their heads are now screwed up: Gumball has Anais's head and one eye, Anais has Darwin's head and three eyes, and Darwin has Gumball's head and an eye in his mouth.
- Richard's insistence that he punch out the windows or windshield on every car he comes across, at one point rolling up the window on one car just to do so.
- The end, where Richard lets loose the balls in the ball pit that flood the school and spill Gumball, Darwin, and Anais out in front of Nicole's car. When Nicole asks them how their first day back was, all they can do is look on in stunned, horrified silence.
- When Rob slides a car on a oil-coated road to run down Gumball and Darwin, Gumball (who has been ranting about how adults are too soft on kids these days) and Darwin managed to get inside the car while they have a deep breath, the car spinning around, went on the other side of the road and the duo safely landed without being aware while they're relaxing.
- The send-up of anime and action cartoon transformation sequences, where it's revealed it's just Gumball and Darwin throwing pieces of Dr. Wrecker's costume at him while he's spinning on a computer chair. Dr. Wrecker wonders why this is necessary and Gumball replies that no one wants to see bad guys struggle to get their pants on like a normal person for ten minutes.
- When Gumball and Darwin throw Dr. Wrecker a party to congratulate him on becoming a villain, their plates, cups and decorations are all stuff for a girl's birthday that they've drawn on with marker, because they couldn't order anything more evil than that without checking off a box that confirms that they're over 18.
- Dr. Wrecker and his Wrecking Ball (even wrapped around it like Cyrus was in the video).
- When Gumball and Darwin are trading suggestions on which crew to join, Gumball suggests the bullies, but Darwin disagrees.
Darwin: It's too late for us. [grits teeth] DARN YOU, LOVING PARENTS!
- The flashback of Gumball and Darwin catching Principal Brown working a second job at the car wash — as one of the brushes.
- The senior citizens' introduction, presented in the style of an over-the-top hip-hop video where they look SO cool. Counts as a Moment of Awesome and Visual Effects of Awesome as well.
- Gumball and Darwin's various attempts to make themselves look older to join the senior citizens' "crew":
- First, they try to get wrinkles from wallowing in nuclear waste, but it ends up giving Gumball the power of telepathy and Darwin the power of magnetism.
- Second, they coat themselves in salt and hang themselves from the clothesline to roast in the sun. Richard smells them from inside, licks them back to normal and laments that he can't eat them.
- Third, they attempt to make themselves prune from keeping their heads underwater in the bathtub then blow dry their faces, but they fall off and give way to live-action baby faces. Their voices also appropriately get higher and they cry.
- Lastly, they age themselves the way they caused Nicole to age, by yelling at each other until they turn white and wrinkled, followed by going skateboarding in high heels, which destroy their bones and joints.
- The very beginning, where Gumball tries to become a Super Saiyan, which becomes Hilarious in Hindsight when he succeeds in "The Pest".
- The freaky head trip when Gumball opens his mind and realizes how many other students there are. His head also literally splits open showing his brain with a face on it.
- When Anais calls Gumball out on his need to force himself into Clare's life so he can stay the center of attention, he phases her out of existence by sheer force of will. Invisible Anais promptly kicks his ass.
- Darwin impersonating Clare and whining. Gumball then pretends to be life while Darwin is still Clare. Darwin grabs Gumball throws him out the window with no change in expression from either of them.
- The "about you" gag where Gumball and Darwin have no clue what Clare is saying due to her (very subtle and easily understood) accent.
- The ending: Gumball and Darwin chase down Clare's bus on Tina Rex to knock it over and force a happy ending onto her.
- Richard places their new family vacation photo along with Louie when they were in Florida on the wall that was drilled to the gas pipe unknowingly. When Louie tells him the news about him marrying Jojo, he tries to contain his anger but he grinds his teeth so hard he makes a spark that creates a gas explosion because of said pipe.
- After the explosion, Louie comes back in the house after dusting himself and told Jojo at least he didn't say no casually. Gumball, Darwin and Anais, who were also caught in the explosion, come upstairs as they knew it was because of Richard knowing the big news.
- Gumball, Anais and Darwin doing a triple Face Palm in reaction to Richard's plan to stop the wedding... but unfortunately for Darwin, he smacks himself by the pipe he's holding.
- Louie has Nicole sign adoption papers so he can adopt her to forbid her from seeing Richard. Louie had to ask her to wear a shirt so he can celebrate by ripping it off of him and he starts celebrating while he sees a quarter on the floor and twists his hip.
- The Watterson family having to go through the Kingdom Of Bureaucracy where everything happens in its own time usually too late in order to get Jojo and Louie their marriage license before Frankie takes away their home. Gumball uses this as an advantage by bumping into Frankie to get him off the line... which goes into effect as the line goes forward.
- The Watterson family trying to stop Frankie from notarizing the form that gives him ownership of their house (and get Granny Jojo and Louie married), but get stopped by a clerk (a chocolate cupcake) who's not doing his job.
Nicole: We're here to get a driver's license!
Clerk: Uh huh... One minute. (Making clicks on his computer)
Nicole: Are you playing Solitaire?
Clerk: (sighs and he starts to watch videos with cat noises)
Nicole: I can hear you watching cat videos.
(the computer makes a chiming noise)
Gumball: What the?! That's the sound of the Elmore Plus Messenger!
Clerk: No it's not... (types in) #Job4Life.
- Louie's fatherly advice to Richard.
Louie: You need to stop eating things that aren't food. And also eat less food.
- Gumball, Darwin, and Anais remember about how Jojo was with food, fun, and presents in caution of Louie wanting to show them something as he's old like her.
Darwin: Granny Jojo, what's this?
Granny Jojo: Herring surprise.
Gumball: What's the surprise?
- Darwin's Imagine Spot on using money for charity:
- Darwin's commercial ends with him ranting at others to give money to the poor.
- Darwin naming his charity the Coalition Of Really Really Useful People Together... Or C.O.R.R.U.P.T.
- Darwin's dream ends with him not making any money due to expenses... ending up in toxic waste management where he ends up encountering zombies.
- Anais's Imagine Spot starts with Anais getting all of the money in the world then destroying it all so the economy gets destroyed and the people can live blissfully in nature... ends in disaster due to being open to predators in nature.
- Gumball's Imagine Spot on using money for a suit and tie to become President:
Gumball: (in Ted Kennedy-style voice) My fellow Americans... (in normal voice) I think we all know where this is going, so let's just skip to the end. (Presses button to nuke the entire country)
- He posts a campaign video of him promising in a Ted Kennedy-style voice for seven-day weekends, state-issued mobility scooters, to replace water with soda, and to make pizza the fourth emergency service. When Anais asked him how can he get votes? He squeaks his hands in the song of the "Star-Spangled Banner" which succeeds in him getting elected.
- When pressed by Anais on what to do if people get all obese from the free pizza, his solution is robot servants... who end up rebelling against all of humanity. How does Gumball put an end to all this?
- The entire invisible-car-chase sequence...and how Mr. Small is just riding his hippie van, Janis (the same one from "The Void") and not finding any of this out of the ordinary, though you wouldn't either if you lived in Elmore.
- Anais doing her best audition for PlatinumGames by practicing kick-boxing in the attic.
- When Gumball and Darwin find Anais beating up her stuffed animals while blindfolded, she nearly punches Gumball and her fist stops just short of his face. Gumball thinks she's angry with him, so he admits that:
- He swapped her smashed pills for turtle flakes, which is why everyone at school calls her "Kraken Breath".
- He kept messing up her sunscreen when she was born and she didn't really have a facial birthmark in the shape of a goat, because he thought if she looked cursed Nicole wouldn't love her more than him.
- He put stones in her pockets when she was a baby because he was worried she would grow taller than him, which is why she's medically classified as a cephalopod.
- When Anais says it's not Gumball she's angry with, it's shown that Gumball was planning to have Darwin hit Anais over the head with a shovel and he was telling him to abort it.
- The whole scene with Gumball and Darwin explaining the effects of violence to Anais:
Gumball: Okay, first I want you to learn what it means to hurt someone.
Anais: I'm the one who—
Gumball: No arguing! You wanna use violence? Then, first you need to understand how it makes people feel!
Anais: Wait, what?
Darwin: Hit him.
Anais: Guys, you don't understand.
Gumball: DO IT! (Darwin grabs Anais' hand and makes her slap Gumball) Ohhh, I feel pain! But also sorrow. Isn't there a better solution to our problem? (Darwin picks up Anais and throws her on top of Gumball, then grabs her by the ears and pulls her back) AAAHH! The violence inflicted upon me has instilled the rage, that can only link to more violence. (Gumball picks up Anais by her left leg and hits Darwin with her)
Darwin: UUAUGH! As an innocent bystander, I feel unjustly hurt. The violence has now become... a vicious circle. (Darwin makes Anais slap Gumball again, Gumball makes Anais slap Darwin, Darwin prepares to make Anais slap Gumball a third time but she starts spinning around in mid-air slapping both of them)
Gumball: See what happens when you let yourself be an instrument of violence? Everyone gets hurt!
Anais: You don't understand! I'm the one who's getting picked on!
Gumball: (grabs Anais and stops her spinning) Then forget everything I said. (goes Super Saiyan with appropriate Art Shift) LET'S NAIL THIS GUY!
Darwin: C'mon man, we both know this is just posturing.
Gumball: (powers down) Yeah, but I thought you might buy it if I went big.
- Gumball trying to meditate, only to get trampled by the football team then punted into the air. In the next scene, Anais and Darwin are trying to put him back together again, and Gumball's disembodied arm waves to Penny when she walks by with Carmen.
- Ms. Simian showing Gumball and Anais her scars, which she got from teaching a homo erectus to make fire, trying to introduce the wheel into her tribe's curriculum, falling on a wet floor on the day Christopher Columbus discovered the New World, and the Salem witch trials.
- Darwin, watching in through the window on makeshift stilts, witnessing Ms. Simian showing off the scar she got on the day of Columbus's arrival (which is on her rear end) and going white and blank-eyed from shock.
- Gumball and Darwin's Demon Heads that scare Nicole! Nicole even took her words back...in reverse.
- Mr. Robinson falling apart after Gumball takes a load-bearing thread from his body as a keepsake, followed by Gumball taking his unibrow.
- Their musical number that ends with them flying away... courtesy of Mr. Robinson's leaf blower.
- The picture montage of Gumball, Darwin and Mr. Robinson. With Mr. Robinson Mooning while Gumball and Darwin have cool poses.
- Gumball and Darwin's methods to prevent Mr. Robinson from leaving.
Darwin: Sorry dude. What with the badge, the uniform, the unchecked sense of authority, I got carried away.
- The failed attempts to make the house too scary to live in by making Darwin into a Japanese girl ghost who ends up getting the door slammed on him and thrown out the bathroom window.
- Gumball's role as a criminal and Darwin's role as a brutal cop... who took his role way too far that makes the buyers think the officers are scarier than the criminals.
- Masami's invitations for Gumball and Darwin are in the form of an exploding metal bird that gives off a blinding flash and burns their retinas. Larry, who's working as a delivery man, says he's been exposed to it so much that his sight won't come back for another ten years.
- Gumball's completely insane story about how he lost his and Darwin's invitations involving raccoons and sharks.
- The race to get to the mall to get Masami a painting and the ways Gumball and Darwin sabotage the other students: Gumball shorts out Bobert with a drinking fountain and the latter hits a wall and explodes, Darwin pins Tobias' headband on a door handle and it doesn't break until he reaches the mall, kicks Idaho into Principal Brown's lunch leading to their Reactive Continuous Scream when Brown picks up Idaho with his fork, then simply blows Teri away, Gumball jumps on Ocho video game-style and uses him as a projectile to knock out Tina, Carmen and Jamie, and Darwin uses a light shaft from a car mirror to melt Sarah's head.
- When Masami insists to Leslie that she'd be fine with him giving her a flower, he rips off his own neck and presents himself to her while letting out a series of screams. After Leslie, Teri and Carmen leave, it's then revealed that they were standing on Gumball and Darwin while they were camouflaged into the floor, and Gumball admits that Darwin was right that they should've camouflaged into the walls instead.
- The reason the other Wattersons weren't around to get Gumball, Darwin and Masami out of the basement is because they were at the hospital after Anais got sick and mostly covered in warts from kissing frogs.
- When Darwin finds a flare gun in the basement Masami questions if it's safe to fire it, but Gumball insists he and Darwin have been in a lot of unexpected predicaments before and have always escaped unhurt. Darwin and Masami stare at him incredulously, so he says they sometimes escape unhurt. They still don't buy it, so he admits they've escaped unhurt once, and hurt themselves on the way home.
- Masami revealing that she has retractable legs.
- Gumball and Darwin get ready to sing "Happy Birthday" to Masami, only for the cops (French fries in riot gear) to burst in and arrest them for allegedly kidnapping Masami and holding her for ransom.
- Gumball, dressed as a Wall Street tycoon, accidentally stabbing a milk carton parking attendant with Nicole's car keys, then taking them out and causing the milk carton to nearly bleed out milk (in the next scene he appears in, he's seen alive with a bandage over his wound).
- When Nicole asks the kids to turn their frowns upside-down, they turn their entire heads upside-down and their frowns remain the same.
- Richard using the spray-paint can man (the same one from "The Finale," "The Extras," and "The Money") to create a parking space.
- Nicole scribbling on Marvin's car after he takes the spot they're after...only to learn that it's a handicapped spot...and Marvin isn't even out of his car.
- Betty the chalkboard lady tricking The Wattersons into giving her a lift to the bus stop by pretending to be a dotty old woman looking for her car.
- Betty describing the bus (her car) as smelling of "damp laundry and despair."
- The Wattersons park at the junkyard and their car gets snatched up by a magnet. As they're about to get lowered into the crusher, another car takes their spot, everyone in the car yells, "Oh, COME ON!"
- Similar to Wakko Warner near the end of the Animaniacs short, "Potty Emergency", the Wattersons somehow go inside the movie playing at the local theater just to find a parking space.
- When Nicole tells the kids to hold on to their hats, they and Richard each pull out a hat and hold on to it.
- The episode ultimately ends with the Wattersons parking next to their house after finally getting their parking space.
- The one thing on Richard's chore list is to get mayonnaise because Nicole has never seen him accomplish anything beyond that.
- Richard thinking that LOL means "lots of love" and Hector's mom using it in a text to a guy whose mother isn't doing well.
- Richard's journey to the supermarket being sidetracked by repeatedly going through the Joyful Burger drive-thru (which the Mako-esque narrator describes as "getting caught in the vortex of the drive-thru window, where your worst enemy is yourself.")
- Gumball and Darwin wait 17 hours for Bobert to update to the newest version of his operating system, and in that time their eyes become bloodshot and they collect cobwebs.
- Gumball compares Bobert's newly-downloaded incredibly loud music to cheese being grated through a guitar by a bunch of rich, smug old people wearing leather pants.
- Bobert's Siri-esque voice recognition software getting everything Gumball and Darwin say wrong, so Bobert ends up sending Granny Jojo a list of nursing homes and pictures of camel butts, then he kicks Leslie and gives him an impromptu wedding to Alan, both of whom don't mind.
- Bobert repeatedly freezing up, at one point doing so in midair and staying there as Gumball and Darwin collide into him, then later while conducting during a recorder recital, causing the class to play at such a high tone that they all deflate from playing so hard.
- The Bobert store is a sharp jab at the interior design of Apple stores, where everything is completely white including the employees ("This store is whiter than an arctic fox in a wedding dress", says Gumball), who Gumball has to feel around to find. He's then revolted not when he accidentally grabs the clerk's butt and puts his fingers in his nose, but when he ends up grabbing his ponytail.
- When New Bobert flies Gumball and Darwin up to the plane Bobert is being transported on, Gumball's pants come off. When Bobert stops Gumball from hitting the ground he expresses relief that he wasn't wearing pants, then his underwear comes off.
- Sarah cosplaying as herself, and when she takes off the costume's head she takes off her own head in the process.
- Darwin claims that the only people into superheroes are fedora-wearing neckbeards.
- Gumball shines a flashlight with a Valentine-shaped shade, but a fence obscures the bottom and makes it look like a pair of buttcheeks. Dr. Butt sees the Buttsignal and suddenly rips off his shirt to show his superhero costume.
- Sarah's drawings of Laserheart perfectly parody the infamous "boobs and butt pose", generally looking like something from The Hawkeye Initiative.
- After getting mugged, Darwin asks Gumball if they should go to the police. Gumball says, "And what? Tell them we were dressed like Eastern European pop stars and got mugged for $7.00 by a shadow?"
- Rocky driving while reading a poem as Penny holds on for dear life.
- In the chemistry lab Penny is told to mix two chemicals, which form into a hostile brown blob. As she's reading Gumball's message on the blackboard, it then tells her that they both know he can't be trusted around chemicals.
- When Penny goes out into the desert, it turns out that Gumball meant to write "dessert", as in the mall where they shared their first dessert, and he left her an apology written entirely out of old bones. Cue Penny laughing before she turns into her gorgon form and her laughing becomes manic.
- Penny goes to the mall and is now incredibly dehydrated from the desert heat, and Larry gives her a sundae on the house. Unfortunately, as stated in Gumball's message, he forgot about her allergy to blueberries (from "The Dream") and neglected to tell Larry to not put blueberry ice cream in, so he decided to balance it out by putting an allergy pill in the cherry. Penny takes the cherry, which stops the swelling but causes her head to look like a near-deflated balloon.
- Penny attempts to see if she's capable of Voluntary Shapeshifting instead of just shapeshifting based on her emotional state, with a Sailor Moon-style transformation sequence. It doesn't work.
- Penny finding Gumball's insults about her mom and sister funny.
- Alan attempts to take the ice bucket challenge, but the bucket just has a block of ice in it so when Bobert dumps the bucket, the ice falls out and crushes Alan.
- Richard reviewing Calculator like a video game as a Let's Play video.
Richard: My only criticism is that there's no female characters but there's no male characters either so it's okay I guess.
Richard: So yeah, pretty good game. 8 out of 10. Would play again. (His head falls on the desk.)
- Then he divides by zero, blowing up the computer in his face but he was able to give it his rating to conclude the video as if nothing happens until the end.
Man in ad: All right!!! All right!!! You can skip now!!
- Special mention goes to the ad before the video, it has a 30 second cooldown for the skip button but Gumball keeps clicking the man in the ad until...
- Note that by the time he finishes that sentence, the 30 second cooldown just expired.
- Tobias tries to prank his dad, Harold, by putting a skateboard at the bottom of the stairs. Harold mistakes it for a home invasion and calls the police while Jackie pelts him with objects. When Tobias explains what's happening, Harold (after he and his wife have a laugh over it) grounds him, then when Tobias signs off, the Donut Sheriff arrive and tackles him.
- The Stupid Statement Dance Mix of that scene later on deserves a mention.
- Gumball repeatedly getting tricked into clicking on links to a video with a picture of a chihuahua playing a saxophone with appropriate music (a cross between Rick Roll and Epic Sax Guy).
- By the time Gumball and Darwin are done looking at videos they're now teenagers, and when they try to leave the room they just get sucked back to the computer like they were earlier.
- Mr. Fitzgerald trying to tie his tie and commenting how pointless it is because he doesn't have a neck.
- The police immediately appearing after Patrick tries to leave Gumball in his car unattended (which is considered a criminal offense).
- Gumball removing strands of his DNA, causing him to mutate in various ways until he eventually becomes a giant, multicolored blob.
- Mr. Fitzgerald telling Gumball that he's worried about the Watterson DNA because Richard was once sent to the hospital after trying to find out what lightning tasted like.
- The head of Chanax telling Patrick that Gumball makes him laugh and that "...[I] haven't laughed like this since my last bailout."
- Gumball's thumb popping off his hand and dancing to steel drum music before firing off in the air like a bottle rocket.
- The implication that Gumball has stood on the lunch table and slapped his ass so much that there's a sign on the wall specifically forbidding it.
- Gumball thinking the Hot Dog Guy is so lonely that he counts brooms in the janitor's closet.
- The delightfully awkward "legend phone" exchange between Gumball and Hot Dog Guy.
- Everything about Gumball's awkward sleepover with The Hot Dog Guy, from Darwin and Anais bailing on him in favor of a sleepover with Banana Joe to Gumball trying to put the Hot Dog Guy's hand back at his side and ending up straddling him to Gumball coming into school the next day sleep-deprived and traumatized.
- The sequence of Gumball and the Hot Dog Guy playing cruel tricks on each other so one of them will break off the "friendship," most notably Gumball turning the shower water in the locker room so cold that the Hot Dog Guy comes out shrunken and speaking in a high voice, Gumball inviting The Hot Dog Guy to a hot dog lunch and the Hot Dog Guy forcing himself to eat it while his internal monologue is screaming and spitting in disgust, and the Hot Dog Guy giving Gumball two poisonous snakes as a present.
- Gumball getting his revenge on Darwin predicting everything he does by getting The Hot Dog Guy to hug him.
- The episode opens with Mrs. Robinson offering nuts to some squirrels, and Gumball and Darwin appear acting like squirrels hoping for some nuts. When she points out that she's feeding the squirrels, Darwin comments he didn't know she liked squirrels, or outside, or daylight, and as Gumball adds, anything that doesn't involve other people suffering.
- The nuts turn out to be coated in coffee (Darwin later adds that they were also soaked in prune juice, which he considered overkill), which causes the squirrels to attack Gumball and Darwin. When they throw the nuts away, the squirrels start attacking everyone else.
- After Mrs. Robinson blames the squirrel attack on the boys and they're sentenced to community service, Gumball is trying to describe how evil Mrs. Robinson is. First, he calls her "heart so dark it's a black hole" evil, then Wall Street evil, then "ads before your video loads" evil.
- When Darwin insists that no one is truly evil, Gumball tells him to jump because Mrs. Robinson was about to run them over from behind.
- The montage of Mrs. Robinson causing suffering throughout Elmore is accompanied by an upbeat Villain Song with fittingly sadistic lyrics.
- Darwin lures Mrs. Robinson to the hospital by claiming that there was a power outage (which of course, would kill most of the patients). When he tries to uses one of the babies in the nursery to remind her of her own youth, Gumball find a tag on her head saying she's 70% cotton, 30% polyester, and made in the fiery pits of the underworld.
Darwin: Three times did the cheese move sideways to Switzerland by radio. But, she never licked that parking permit.
- Darwin tries to get through to Mrs. Robinson again, but finds she's got into the nursery while he was talking. She swaps the nametags for the babies of two couples to make it look they had an affair, and the fathers get into a fight. When Darwin tries to explain to Mrs. Robinson why what she's doing is wrong, it cuts to her P.O.V., where Darwin is speaking the same way as her. When he decides to actually speak to her the way she speaks, it comes out as nonsense.
- Mrs. Robinson takes advantage of Darwin being distracted again to squirt the soap dispenser near the entrance all over the floor, then when the Band-Aid doctor comes in he slips. When Darwin laments that she doesn't understand, Gumball states that it's not that Darwin doesn't speak her language, but that she doesn't have a soul.
- Gumball and Darwin try to get into the Robinsons' house by offering Mr. Robinson a free house-cleaning.
Mr. Robinson: On one hand I don't trust you, on the other hand I don't trust you!
Gumball: (extends his arm through the bottom and out the top of Mr. Robinson's shirt) But on the third hand, free child labor!
Mr. Robinson: Mmm, okay.
Gumball: Thanks. (honks Mr. Robinson's nose)
- When the boys find Mrs. Robinson's diary, Gumball reads it imitating her way of speaking again. When Darwin tells him to read it properly, he shows him that's how it's actually written.
- Mrs. Robinson's photo album: first, she's laying in a boat on a lake while her brother drowns nearby, on her first day of school, she set the building on fire and the fire department is putting it out in the background, and on Christmas Eve, Santa is about to fall into her active fireplace while she holds a bellows. Darwin is horrified, but Gumball insists they look at her baby pictures; first there's her being sewn, then the picture right after that is her ripping the head off a teddy bear.
- When Mrs. Robinson is getting out of her car, Harold greets her on his bicycle and she makes him slam into her car door.
- Gumball and Darwin's plan to get revenge on Mrs. Robinson by taking a photo of her stealing the Wattersons' car goes pear-shaped and she drives it through the mall.
- When she drives through the grocery store, she goes through the cherries. Gumball is unimpressed until Darwin points out that they're genetically-modified, and they turn out to be giant.
- Mrs. Robinson's Laser-Guided Karma in the end: she pins the event on the boys again and drives off in her car, but a streetlight she crashed the Wattersons' car into topples causing her to crash into a billboard, an electrical pole, another car and a hydrant. The water from the hydrant launches her into the road, where her car gets crushed between a tire truck and a gas tanker, the latter of which gets punctured creating a pool of gas, and a wire from the electrical pole ignites it. The resulting explosion launches her into the air, where she gets hit by a plane before hitting the ground. The episode ends as it cuts to Gumball and Darwin recoiling when the ambulance backs up into her (itself a Call Back to "The Mystery").
- The HowToBasic way Gumball prepares his lunch for Alan.
- Gumball briefly gets Super Speed that he uses to chase Alan in his family's car, and everything he runs past explodes, except for Bomb Guy, who doesn't immediately explode and only does as Gumball is talking to him.
- Gumball accidentally popping a white smiley-face balloon that turns out to be Alan's uncle.
- The whole scene with Gumball and Darwin trying to perform an organ transplant between Alan and his mother:
- Gumball putting on a glove, only to find he accidentally used Alan's uncle instead.
- All of Alan's organs are made of air, ergo they're invisible. Darwin pulls out his heart, which beats.
- Gumball looking at a biology book showing the anatomy of several characters: The Jolly Hamburgernote ("The Burgensis"), Hot Dog Guy ("The Salsicia"), Sara ("The Glacies Crepito") whose rib cage runs down her cone, Richard ("The Richard" or "Richardus") whose body is composed primarily of intestines, and Rocky ("The Pupulus") whose body contains only a human hand.
- Darwin re-inflating Alan as the Band-Aid doctor comes in, only for the Band-Aid doctor to leave in disgust.
- The anesthetics they used on Alan wear off as Alan's air is coming out, and when Gumball asks Darwin how does he know, Alan yells with a live-action face "MY INSIDES ARE POURING OUT!"
- With Darwin in distress about what to do as Alan deflates, Gumball simply plugs the hole with his finger while Darwin tries to find where they dropped his flatulum and ends up stepping on it.
- Gumball attempts to kick open the door to the hospital room Alan's family is in and deliver a one-liner twice without the door budging, only to botch the one-liner when the door actually opens.
Gumball: YOU BUT GUSTED! (whispering) Aw dagnabbit I messed it up...
- Nicole walking in on Richard taking a shower and thinking Gumball was the one who filled the bathtub with grape soda, when it was, in fact, Richard.
- Nicole tells a young Gumball that if he wasn't so cute, she'd have sold him to a freakshow by then. When Gumball asks what a freakshow is, she tells him that it's like their family, except people pay to see it.
- Nicole gets the idea to get Gumball a pet, Richard's idea was to "go back in time so we never...", but instantly cuts himself off and suspiciously laughs in agreement to get a pet instead. Richard's nervous smile and Nicole's annoyed expression says all about what he was going to say.
- Gumball names his first fish Darwin after seeing it in his alphabet soup, but when Nicole looks at it, it turns out that the soup spelled "Jpxfrd" and suggests that Gumball be put in school as soon as possible.
- When Nicole can't turn off her alarm clock and Richard starts screaming, she yells when the alarm's still going even after she unplugs it, then it turns out Gumball was making the noise. He then gives them two flaming bowls of cereal, which Richard nonchalantly eats.
- Richard going to the store to get the first replacement Darwin wearing a balaclava, a cleavage-baring aerobics top, and one roller skate.
- The montage of Richard buying new Darwins each time they die; in particular, when he realizes he accidentally bought a carp, attempts to paint it orange, and the paint in the water poisons it, Nicole accidentally puts in an Alka-Seltzer tablet in the fish bowl, and when Leslie (who back then still hasn't bloomed) mistakes the bowl for a ball and kicks it. At the end, Larry can't sell Richard any more fish because the last two escaped when they saw Richard coming.
- When Richard enters the red van (the same one from "The Puppy" that Richard referred to as "The Awesome Store" and where he bought the killer turtle, the car horn that blares La Cucaracha, and the car's hydraulics system) and finds Darwin, the owner attempts a Gremlins reference telling Richard not to get Darwin wet, to which Richard points out that Darwin is a fish and is, by definition, supposed to be wet. He then tells Richard not to feed Darwin after midnight, to which he points out that it's technically always after midnight. The owner also tells Richard the fish is not for sale, only for Richard to point out that Darwin's bowl is sitting on a pillow beneath a spotlight. The guy then mentions how they're supposed to do a whole thing about how Richard asks about the fish, he says it's not for sale, and they discuss it before eventually reaching an agreement.
- Richard also manages to talk the shop owner down from $100 dollars to $10 dollars, only to then immediately raise the price back up to $100 dollars himself.
- Gumball's Super Speed which he uses to stop Richard from flushing Darwin down the toilet.
- The Previously On at the beginning of part 2, which is a rapid-fire Clip Show of intense scenes from previous episodes (like Richard punching a car window in "The Return," the school blowing up in "The Fraud," Anais whaling on Richard in "The Vacation", Darwin and Gumball outrunning the exploding van in "The Puppy", and the Donut Sheriff's PIT maneuver on the ice cream truck Mrs. Parham hijacked in "The Law") before the announcer gets to what really happened.
- Richard trying to cheer Gumball up by painting Darwin on his mouth.
- Darwin asking Sussie's parents if they've seen Gumball and Sussie's parents being so scared that they dropped her, which turned Sussie from a Brainy Baby who speaks coherently (and tells her parents that she has dreams of being a lawyer) to a babbling idiot who can barely form complete sentences.
- When Darwin is trying to catch up to the other Wattersons while they're driving to the mall to replace him, they accidentally back into him to get his bowl and Nicole adds that it costs 15 times as much as him.
- The beginning where Jamie makes Banana Joe let her eat the top of his head, causing him to act brain-damaged, then upon seeing her Anton makes himself into a sandwich and cuts off his own crust, but Jamie doesn't want to eat him so she makes him eat himself.
- When Jamie realizes she needs a boyfriend on the bus ride home, the bus explodes and everyone (except her and Darwin) is seen fleeing among the wreckage.
- Jamie gives Darwin the gift of giving, as in she gives him a gift box with another gift box inside meant for her. She opens it, finds that it's a bottle of perfume, is under the impression that Darwin got it for her because she smells bad and mauls a locker door in a rage (and Gumball comes out of the locker, bruised and cut up into pieces).
- The kiss Jamie blows to Darwin being depicted as a Japanese throwing star that nearly misses Darwin's head.
- Gumball distracts Jamie by asking why, if a coconut has both hair and milk, it is not a mammal. After droning in place for about half a minute, she suddenly snaps out of it by shouting "NIPPLES!".
- Richard coming to school to give Gumball and Darwin their gym-dodging kit (two pairs of crutches and a heart monitor Richard somehow acquired without an explanation).
- The suggestive and annoying sounds Richard makes when Gumball tells Richard that Jamie is Darwin's new girlfriend.
- When Jamie assumes Richard doesn't approve of her relationship with Darwin even though he does, she shoves a lacrosse stick into his mouth that sticks out from both sides of his head.
- Gumball's vision of him and Darwin being married to Jamie. It's similar to the vision of Gumball imagining himself dressed in Nicole's wedding dress and married to Darwin as seen in "The Dress", only more hilariously depressing: they get married on the same beach Larry drove to when he went mad from dedicating his life to work and tried to drown himself (as seen in "The Question"note ), they're still living in their childhood home (which is now filled with wailing babies who look like Gumball mixed with Jamie or Darwin mixed with Jamie), and Darwin looks like he's given up on life.
- Gumball not understanding Darwin's metaphors describing Mr. Small's crying.
- Coach banging her head against the wall in the teachers' lounge.
- When Gumball and Darwin cover the hallway floors in oil, Teri ends up doing a split on them that tears her in half, and when Bobert flies her off to the infirmary the exhaust from his jets ignites the oil, creating a massive explosion throughout the school.
- Gumball and Darwin trying to entertain the injured students and faculty in the infirmary Patch Addams-style, only to end up ripping Teri further, inflating Tobias, and flatlining everyone.
- The sheer Black Comedy of Gumball and Darwin trying to throw Banana Joe into an ambulance, only for him to fly through the windshield and the ambulance pulls out and drives over him.
- Gumball and Darwin trying to prop Rocky and Teri up and make them dance during Mr. Small's musical number.
- When the interference affects Gumball as Darwin is trying on hats, Darwin puts on a hat that covers most of his body and when Gumball tries to give his opinion, the bottom of the screen is replaced with a talk show hosted by Jack Dingle note with Mic Graves note as the guest and a subtitle reading "Mic Graves ate my hamster".
- Richard moving the couch into the kitchen so he can watch the refrigerator like it's a television set.
- Darwin trying to lift a barbell, only to drop it on himself sending his shoes flying through the window. He then drops it again, crushing himself and the weight bench.
- Darwin slamming the bedroom door on Gumball, which breaks against his head.
- When Gumball turns to Richard for comfort, the latter's dialogue is replaced with speech from La Casa De Las Lagrimasnote , speech from Win or Don't Win, and a sitcom laugh track.
- The climax where Gumball and Darwin get teleported into the car while Richard is left filling it with gas (leaving him pouring the gas into a puddle) and end up barreling down the highway due to no one being at the wheel. Namely:
- On the way through their neighborhood, they end up shearing off the front half of Patrick's car.
- Darwin warning Gumball not to take the wheel and before he can explain why, we get a clip of a Claymation car crashing into a wall, a diagram of a brain from an aspirin commercial, and footage a watermelon exploding.
- Before crashing into Joyful Burger, the signal cuts to a commercial for it, and Gumball and Darwin end up screaming with food in their mouths.
- When the car comes to a stop at a payphone, it cuts to a commercial for Panther Treads tires that replaces the bottom of the car and puts it back into motion, driving through the mall.
- When the car almost hits Larry, he faints.
- The brief Freeze-Frame Bonus when Gumball has listed off the pros and cons of him and Darwin reading Anais' diary, but the pros list is incredibly short and the cons list extends beyond the paper, out the front door and across the town:
There might be something we need to know
We could eventually learn things about life
She wouldn't do this to us
There could be something she doesn't want us to know
She will use it against us
We might feel terrible about it
It's bad karma
We should respect her privacy
There might be something that will hurt our feelings
She only has one tooth but it's big
She knows how to keep someone alive and in pain for a long time
She will eventually grow taller
She will one day be old enough to buy power tools
We might need money one day and she will definitely have more than us
[the rest of the list is illegible]
- Gumball turning into a fungus and merging with Darwin a la The Last of Us, followed by Darwin attacking Tobias.
- Gumball attempts to hurt Jodie by making her eat a poison sandwich while serving Darwin, Anais, and himself normal sandwiches made by him and Richard. Anais catches on and attempts to switch the sandwich away from Jodie until Rocky has enough and switches ALL the sandwiches around to make it fair, unintentionally making it a Poisoned Chalice Switcheroo for all four. They all try to eat their sandwich while fearing one of them could be poisoned, then they take a bite. Who had the poisoned sandwich? None of them... but Richard, who is now on the floor at home, gurgling with the telephone off the hook and a 911 operator on the other line.
- Darwin trying to explain love to Bobert.
Darwin: Well, love is in the air. It's in your heart, it's in the eyes of others. It's in the way people touch, the way people talk. And it's all over the universe.
Bobert: If I understand you correctly, you have narrowed the definition of love down to everything and everywhere and everyone. Does not compute.
- The Hexagon Lady ending her date with the Internet by pressing Control+Alt+Delete and the Internet returning to his room and yelling, "Mom! I got friend-zoned again!"
- Richard trying to spread love by hugging people — which gets him in trouble with Felicity for touching Billy, arrested for sexually harassing Felicity and hugging the Hamburger Cop, tried in court by a judge who almost looks like the one from The Wallnote , and punched into the hospital by his cellmates in jail (who happen to be the same prisoners — minus the spraypaint can man — from "The Finale").
- The Hot Dog Guy somehow ending up in Gumball's Happy Place.
- Gumball throwing the short, lightbulb-headed man in the trash to avoid a repeat of his ordeal with the Hot Dog Guy.

- Larry stealing Mr. Small's hippie van, Janis, to escape the turtles, only to crash into a telephone pole and set fire to a gasoline trail, which blows up the gas station.
- The green goblin CEO getting bit in the crotch by a baby turtle while showering.
- The unbelievably scathing satire (for a kids' show) on how the news sensationalizes their stories, from the live-action news reporter blaming foreigners, feral teenagers, and the Internet for the Elmore disappearances despite a lack of evidence to the microphone head reporter (the same one from "The Oracle") thinking the turtles are out to take people's jobs, outright admitting that they will find worse news stories to exaggerate in the future, and the microphone head reporter telling the cameraman to continue rolling as he's being eaten alive after surviving the helicopter crash.
- Anais discovers how to stop the turtle rampage, but they need to convince the town exterminator (the same one from "The Shell" and part two of "The Origins"note ) to release the Evil Turtle. When he hears the story, he accepts their explanation and prepares to release her. Unfortunately, Nicole is so used to everybody declining their requests that she knocks him out.
- Gumball and Darwin's attempt to get Tobias a good grade in science apparently resulted in them creating a noxious chemical cloud in the science lab that knocked out Sarah, Carmen, and Juke.
- Gumball breaking into the teacher's lounge so he and Darwin can hack into the computer and change Tobias' grades...only to discover that it's the broom closet and Rocky the janitor spends his time there in his underwear eating spray cheese from the can and several pizzas while listening to rock music.

- Richard having a plate of spaghetti before going to sleep, which he collapses into.
- William freaking out after the pixie dust that puts everyone to sleep gets in his eye.

- Mr. Small screaming quietly during his nightmare of being stuck in a small room.
- Banana Joe dreams that he's chasing his other end like a dog chasing its tail, then he splits in half. The halves turn into a Joe with two heads and a Joe with two tails, and the former bites the latter before he wakes up and screams when he sees that he split in half in real life.
- Darwin's dream is simply that he has a larger fish bowlnote .
- Nicole's dream of her being on a beach getting interrupted by a foghorn, which is caused by Richard's snoring, then she gets swept up by a tidal wave, which is caused by Richard rolling over her in his sleep. It's then shown that Richard is dreaming of himself as a live-action ball of dough singing about being kneaded into a bun.
- Larry taking Dream Within a Dream to its logical extreme; he doesn't allow himself to sleep, but when he dozes off he sees Richard (baked into a bun from his dream) singing to him. He then has a dream that he's in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and his future self tells him that he's wasted his life. He has several more dreams, until he finds himself in the convenience store with the Donut Sheriff, thinks that he's in a dream where he's tortured by customers giving him insipid demands, and flips out. Then he finds himself in jail, and this time he's awake.

- Juke dreams that he can talk normally, but everyone else talks in different instrument sounds.

- Alan having a full-blown nightmare, with skull, clowns, rotting strawberries, eye-hands, balloon animal-making and chalkboard scratching... and is still smiling in his sleep.
- When Penny told Gumball that they would meet at Dinner, it turned out that was the name of a diner at the mall. Upon being told this Gumball lets out a loud, comical-sounding scream, then holds their conversation while bathing and dressing himself (and putting his pants on his head when he does the latter) and in the process getting the home phone's cord tangled throughout the house. When he attempts to go out the front door, it snaps back and sends him into the wall, and when he pretends that he's a recording Penny sticks her eye out through the speaker of his phone to see that he's on the other end.
