Due to the high levels of humor on this show, this page has been split by season.

WARNING: Episodes may contain unmarked spoilers.


     M.A.O.S. Declassified 
  • The Declassified online show are basically funny recaps hosted by Brett Erlich.
  • The Girl in the Flower Dress recap has several funny moments.
    • One of the skits is Brett being flirtatious with two ladies, and getting taken away by men in suits for being flirtatious both times. He also tries looking at stuff on his smart phone, but still gets kidnapped by men in suits.
    • Also, on the fact that Skye was given a Walking Techbane bracelet, Brett advertises multi colored bracelets.
      Brett: You want green? You want purple? You want glurple?! That's not a color.
    • The Verizon question: "Who do you think is better for Skye? Miles, the "hackavist" or Brett, the real-life host of M.A.O.S Declassified?"

  • Composer Bear McCreary's video blog about how he works hard to create majesty on a daily basis.
  • In a Brett Dalton interview with concerning Ward's Face–Heel Turn, Brett comments on how the night he found out he was asked to meet with the writers after shooting. This being a Joss Whedon show, he immediately started worrying.
    Brett: And you know I'm on a Joss Whedon show, so from the very beginning I'm not unaware of the fact that my position on the team was not a guarantee.
  • The cast of the show received an early screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Reportedly, after they finished watching, they immediately asked whether they still had jobs.
    • The cast were given pages that revealed Ward's treachery. Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen's recreation of their reactions to the revelation at PaleyFest 2014 brought the house down.
      Chloe Bennet: She and I started crying. We read it and I said, "What a motherfucker! I kissed him!"
      Ming-Na Wen: And I said, "Well I fucked him!"
  • During the "Assembling a Universe" special, Clark Gregg talks about meeting with Joss Whedon during the filming of The Avengers, and having Whedon tell him that his character is basically The Heart of the Avengers, and that his role is very important to the plot of the film. Gregg is flattered for a moment... until he realizes that it's Joss Whedon telling him this, and he knows what happens to The Heart in his movies...
    Clark Gregg: Joss? Is this going to be my last Marvel movie?
  • The cast being asked to do impressions of their favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agents from the MCU (barring their own character, of course). Chloe Bennett's extended impression of Simmons should win extra points for being done in a wonderfully inaccurate Cockney accent.
  • Brett Dalton's love of being an incorrigible Pungeon Master while live-tweeting during each episode is a sight to behold.
  • The bloopers. Highlights include a Charlie's Angels impersonation, Ming-Na panting like a dog, and everyone (specially Chloe Bennett) frequently struggling to keep a straight face.
  • Shortly after revealing Mockingbird exists in the MCU, but before revealing that she is in for rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D. one of the Koenigs wonders if she asked about him and accuses the other of pretending to be him, much to the second one's exasperation. After learning that Mockingbird is in, he becomes flustered and leaves to prepare HQ.
    • The Koenig who got killed by Ward was "Eric", the one introduced at the end of Season 1 is "Billy", and now the one who takes over the orientation from him is called "Sam"... that's right, there's a third Koenig brother, and all of them work for S.H.I.E.L.D. "Family resemblance" just took on a whole new meaning.
      • Lampshaded by Triplett in the Season 2 premiere, who complains about how Billy Koenig keeps talking about his numerous brothers.
  • Ming-Na Wen and Brett Dalton taking the Ice Bucket Challenge all while rocking their respective S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA T-Shirts.
  • At the panel at San Diego Comic Con 2014, a child brings out The Destroyer gun in front of the panel, much to the delight of the crowd.
  • When Henry Simmons was cast as Mack, the producers couldn't resist a few lame jokes on the fact that there was already a lead character named "Simmons" in the show. It gets funny once Henry Simmons' character meets the character named Simmons... and the two can't stand one another.
  • The featurette about "The Asset" shows that as Chloe Bennett jumped into the pool, Brett Dalton was holding a plaque akin to a diving judge. Chloe complains that he just gave her an 8 or 9, because "I'd give him a 10 if he jumped into a pool in a pink dress!"
  • When Patton Oswalt was offered the role as Eric Koenig, he thought his character would be M.O.D.O.K., of all things:
    Patton Oswalt: When they first told me the character’s name, I’ll admit the first thing I did is I went on Wikipedia and looked up the M.O.D.O.K. character to see if Koenig was maybe his name before he became M.O.D.O.K., but it wasn't. They keep on talking about the Clairvoyant in the show and I’m like, ‘is that M.O.D.O.K.? Am I M.O.D.O.K.?
  • During the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, the casts of both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter started a "Dubsmash War". Absolute highlight: "We Are the Champions" by the S.H.I.E.L.D. crew, culminating in Clark Gregg dressed as Peggy Carter.
  • The cast was asked what S.H.I.E.L.D. stood for!
  • This entire panel. Highlights include their unabashed love for Iain and Brett's obsession with dinosaur rights.
