1* One episode features Special Ed making a call to NASA; after some time, the receptionist realized this was a ''Crank Yankers'' call.

It's Saturday."²* "Hits a Deer," in which Bobby Fletcher is supposedly in a car accident while talking on the phone with someone from the electric company about his bill. He claims that he hit a deer, but you can hear someone moaning and shouting in pain in the background the whole time. Finally...²-->'''Bobby''': Okay, listen, between us two... it wasn't a deer.²* The now [[MemeticMutation infamous]] furby prank call, with a literally possessed Demonic furby.
