* Season One, Episode Three has a moment during a sketch of Alton sneaking into a diner kitchen to teach the audience how to properly fry eggs over-easy when he is accosted by the actual chef of the diner telling him to get out (the first in a series-long set of [[RunningGag running gags]]). The chef's redneck accent and missing teeth are funny enough, but what sends the sketch over the edge is where Alton tries to demonstrate the difference between a raw and hard-boiled egg, the chef grabs the raw egg and crushes it in his hand, sending yolk and albumen all over the both of them. AB's [[https://youtu.be/JbrTlav9-zA?t=10m28s flinch]] sends everyone behind the camera audibly laughing and the chef's actor corpsing as Alton calmly walks off set.
