YMMV: Clerks II
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The dance scene that turns into a full musical number.
    • Though it did lead to The Reveal that was constantly spoken of later on. Dante reveals his love for Becky and in return Becky reveals she is pregnant.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The "Porch Monkey" scene, in which Randall keeps Digging Yourself Deeper when trying to defend his use of the term. Could also be Cringe Comedy.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Grandma, what was it liiiiiike?
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "You never go ass-to-mouth!" Even more since Smith would still later describe his own film Tusk as "a cuddly version" of that one.
  • Ho Yay: Randal and Dante.
    Randal: (to Dante) You're my best friend, and I love you. In a totally non-gay way.
    Jay: (to Silent Bob) Yeah, right.
    • Not to mention the fact that their every argument sounds like a lover's tiff.
    • Jay demands that Dante and Randal engage in oral sex before he'll give them the money. Bob gives him a funny look and he takes it back. In a cut scene, Bob follows up by telling Jay that he's "just a gay man in deep denial."
  • Jerkass Woobie: Randal at the end, when he reveals how much he has been dreading Dante moving away.
  • Memetic Mutation: PORCH MONKEY 4 LIFE.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Guess how many people actually get that Randal is supposed to be 'wrong' in the Porchmonkey scene? Not very many.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Hey kids, its Jason Lee/Ben Affleck/Ethan Suplee/Earthquake/Wanda Sykes/Kevin's Mom!
  • Tear Jerker: The ending. Never thought this would happen in a View Askew picture.
  • The Woobie: Emma becomes this when she sees Dante kissing Becky.
