YMMV: LoadingReadyRun
  • Acceptable Targets: Philosophers, apparently.
    Jeremy: We can't allow this technology to fall into enemy hands!
    Matt: Absolutely! I shudder to think what the Germans would do-
    Graham: Woah, the Germans?
    Matt: Sorry, the, er... the Russians?
    Graham: (whispered) No...
    Matt: Uh, the Chin- (Graham shakes his head)- Koreans-?
    Graham: Terrorists! Yes, the terrorists!
    Jeremy: What?! Where have you been, agent! I'm talking about the greatest enemy this nation has ever faced: The Antarcticans!
    Matt: ...The Antarcticans?
    Graham: I didn't think anybody lived in Antarctica.
    Jeremy: Would you stake your country on that?? Or have they already gotten to you? I can hear the penguins marching now!
  • Freud Was Right: Skeletor's Dick is, by its nature, packed full of both lyrical and visual imagery to this effect. Sausages, swords and bananas are all involved, as are references to bones (which doubles as an Incredibly Lame Pun for "Skeletor") and, of course,
    Bag Fries: Watch it grooooooooowwww...
  • He Really Can Act: Andy just knocks it out of the park in "A Warning".
  • Memetic Badass: One word: ''Octopimp''. You would have had to see Desert Bus III to understand...
    • Paul, oh so much. Possibly inspired by some of the earlier videos, but taken to new heights with "This is Why I'm Paul" from the "Rapstar 64K" video.
      • In fact, Paul's beard has its own fandom, who have only become more rabid since he shaved completely during Desert Bus 2. Interestingly, all of this was before Unskippable was picked up by the Escapist (increasing Graham and Paul's online profiles and leading to further Escapist work), making Beard Worship a kind of bragging right for longtime fans.
  • Memetic Mutation: Just use fucking Space Jump!
    • And in the rare occurrence of a meme started meme, that eventually created "Spain Jump!"
    • Paul has 3 PS3s.
    • Just do it live.
    • DO YOU KNOW WHY I BROUGHT YOU HERE?
    • "Oh hi, I didn't see you there."
    • The Creepy Doll
    • Everything is always Steve's fault.
    • Replacing expletives with the word bus.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Graham is terrified by the Creepy Dolls. Sadly, they seem to be multiplying in number.
  • Painful Rhyme: In Rebellin'. See Rhymes on a Dime.
