Their discussion of Santa Christ.
Rob: The funny thing is this beard kept falling off, so I sound like I've had a stroke, I'm going, ""[imitates Santa Christ as if he had a stroke]"", and it's because I'm trying to move my mouth in such a way that this beard doesn't fall, it sounds like Santa Christ had a stroke. *laughs* I really wanted to nail you directly between the eyes Doug: Yeah, every time we did it, you would poke me a little harder, and you'd poke me in different areas, you'd sort of slap me a little bit too. Rob: I like how on the forums, some people were just like "I don't like Santa Christ, he kept looking at the camera"... Doug: THAT'S THE POINT!! Rob: I know, I did that on purpose, that was the point. He's supposed to break the fourth wall. He's like looking at the audience, saying "Come on, folks, this'll be fun!"

Rob: .... because Doug needs to sniff it?

For Dungeons & Dragons, Doug and Rob start off with dueling Profion impressions, then Rob soon drops it while Doug declares he's going to keep it up for the entire commentary.

Then they recount the disagreement they had over whether there should be a Doctor Who reference for Tom Baker's appearance, and Rob can't believe he's having a serious discussion with that voice.

During the Fear and Loathing at ShadoCon sketch, Doug (as Raoul Puke) is running around with Egoraptor doing all kinds of crazy things. The whole video is funny, but there is one point near the end...
