- Also appreciated fanservice, but in the POTO behind the scenes, Tamara and Beth zoom in on Doug's ass and he shakes it for them.
- Apparently, the joke with the traffic cone in the Ghostbusters (2016) review was a Throw It In moment. Rob adds in the line "I feel like a traffic cone," they all notice the traffic cone nearby, and the next few minutes are them laughing their asses off and deliberating how to work it in. Funny thing is, all the alternatives are about as funny as what they went with.
- In Alvin and the Chipmunks behind the scenes, Tamara takes a picture of Rob (Scallon, her boyfriend) and Jim holding Doug's while he leans out, notes how dirty it looks and says pervily "good for you, Doug". Also at the end where she's way too tiny for Doug's high five and paws at his arm.

- Their discussion of Santa Christ.
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!"
- The commentary for The Garbage Pail Kids Movie review shows that it is one of the few movies that annoys Doug both in character and out of character. It manages to be this, as well as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.

- Stargate Care Bear-1.
- "You've reached the Necronomicon. What are you wearing?"
- Doug picks up a typo in the captions (actually, it isn't) and asks Rob why he didn't catch it. Rob replies "I don't know, sometimes- sometimes I actually have faith that you might know what you're doing for a half-second."

- At the beginning of the commentary. Doug and Rob have a bit of an argument and at one point, Doug tells Rob to leave...

- In The Wizard, Doug's at a bit of a loss about what to call Putnam's career, and settles on "professional child bringer backer guy."
- In the OTHER animated Titanic movie commentary, Doug and Rob end by spitting at the film, saying it is a shame as it has better animation.
Rob: Honey? Can I borrow your shoe?Rob's Now-Wife: .... Why?Rob: .... because Doug needs to sniff it?Rob's Now-Wife: ...Explain?
- Rob's explanation for how he made it possible for the Critic to perform the skit that pokes fun at the shoe-sniffing joke.
- Which leads to Doug saying he actually didn't sniff her shoe that heavily (the nose sound was recorded in post), but says that he's sure Rob's wife's foot smells wonderful. Rob agrees.

It's every bit as hilarious as it sounds, and then some.
- 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. And that's just what he does, with Rob occasionally expressing disbelief that he's still doing it, and even though before it's halfway done he's completely run out of material and is just talking as himself with a weird voice. 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.
- Rob decides to tackle Doug and force his real voice out, and Doug settles down after it.... and continues to do the voice anyway!
- The only time Doug drops it is at the very end, when they spoof a sequel fantasy story where the character get Snails back, because he says the moment deserves his real voice!
- Profion!Doug saying the Critic would be far hotter with the bald guy's blue lipstick on.

- In the commentary for A Simple Wish, Doug bitching at the Critic for being a cynical idiot and complaining about someone he's never met is both bizarrely sweet and hilarious.

- The video opens with Critic waking up, having breakfast and eagerly going to play this game. Ten minutes later, however, he is practically a wreck from playing this game. It leads to his opening lines, which acknowledge this is a DVD bonus item:
Critic: Well, you did it. You bought the DVD; good for you. I guess that means we have to give you something extra, don't we? How about a review? Yes, we all enjoy reviews, don't we? Now, what should it be? Hmm... I know! How about a video game that REALLY PISSES ME THE FUCK OFF??! 'CAUSE THAT'S ALL YOU WANNA SEE, ISN'T IT?! You just wanna see me be angry! (raises his arms in the air) DANCE, MONKEY, DANCE!
- Critic describes this game as "the worst thing to be associated with the movie since Blues Brothers 2000." (It gets harsher in hindsight, given how he reviews that movie, years later.)
"Oh, that's right, I fucking went there!"
- There are at least nine levels in the factory, full of slippery platforms and even slipperier climbing chains, which annoys Critic to no end, prompting him to say, "Maybe they [the game designers] want you to get a job there."
Critic: Kids, do yourself a favor. Find somebody that works in a chain factory and punch 'em. Don't explain why, don't even introduce yourself, just punch 'em in the fucking face.
- In one factory level, as the timer runs low, an enemy dog blocks Elwood's path by running back and forth across a ladder he needs to climb:
Critic: Come on, you fucking dog, MOVE!!! I only have sixteen seconds!
- The entire sequence with the flying snake in the Blues Brothers game. "DAH! Oh, hey. DAAAAUGH! DAMMIT!"
Critic: What the hell is this thing anyway? (reading instruction manual) "Snake: A friendly creature, you can jump on its back and control it." (looks up) Does that thing look remotely friendly to you?!?
- Then the snake somehow nudges Elwood off the edge of the platform, which leads to Critic's Rage Breaking Point ("...He pushed me. He fucking pushed me! FRIENDLY CREATURE, MY ASS!!"), which becomes all the more acute when he sees the Game Over screen: "The Blues Brothers Concert Over", causing him to rip the cartridge out of the system and destroy it.
"Oh, concert over?! I'LL SAY IT IS!!!"
- After destroying the game and throwing it outside, Critic rants about how hard it is and how little it has to do with the movie, after which he adds, "I pity the poor sucker who comes across that game and tries to play it." Cue the (off-screen) arrival of Chester A. Bum ("Oh my god, a video game! 'Bleu-Ass Brothers'... Must be French."), who picks it up and tries to play it.
Critic: I'm the Nostalgia Critic and... (puts hands in praying position) may God have mercy on his soul.
Chester: (playing game) Oh my God, it's exactly like the movie!... Cake makes you stronger? I-I don't understand that, I... Wow, the... floor sure is slippery, isn't it? Heh-heh... I thought I was supposed to be getting out of the jukebox! (plays the game a while) Okayyy, just... go up the chain there, guy! Heh... C'mon, go up the chain... Go up THE CHAIN!... Oh, look! A flying snake! Hello, flying snake! How are you... HE PUSHED ME! THAT'S IT, I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS GAME! I'M TOSSING THIS SO SOME OTHER IDIOT CAN FIND IT! (discards the game)

- "Danger, Will Robinson! I've been in here so long, I like men now!"
- Critic criticizes the fact that the crew are holding a press conference at T-120 seconds to launch. He calls it the worst managed press conference ever.

[at this point, he’s drowned out by the voice over the loudspeaker]Loudspeaker: Mr. Howard, your toast just came out of the oven. Repeat: your toast just came out of the oven. [during this, the President is mouthing where the explosion occurred and used exaggerated hand movements to indicate than something went “Boom!”. After a few seconds]President: ...and seeing how I scheduled only ten seconds for this meeting, that’s all I have to tell you. Remember what I said, especially the part about breathing.

- 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...

- Young Frankenstein:
- She starts off the review with really bright blue lipstick, and decides a couple minutes in that it's too much and wipes it off with her notes. Then she has trouble reading them because of the lipstick smears. Also after she takes her lipstick off, she randomly vogues as the screen changes color.
