  • Jules finds out Laurie and Grayson slept together before she and Grayson started dating, and her decision over who to be mad at turns into a full-blown parody of The Bachelor and Survivor, complete with Jules snuffing out the loser's wine glass.
  • In "You Don't Know How It Feels", Laurie punishes a kid who stole her candy by making her listen to a singing performance by Grayson and Jules's father Chick who are dressed as Prince and a bear, respectively.
  • Laurie's extensive coffee order. Her delivery also makes it Rapid-Fire Comedy.
    Laurie: Oh, hey, Rach. Now, bear with me, I have to order for everyone: Okay, I'll have one Soy Largie, one Teeny Tiny, one Teeny Teeny Tiny Unleaded, one Plain Jane, extra Yum— what the hell, make it a double Yum— Uhhh, a Baby Joey, a Midnight with a Full Moon (hold the pumpkin), a medium coffee, I need a Heavy D, in a travel mug, please, two Crazy Ivans, a Sauron's Eye— also, I need a Damn! and an iced Damn!, a Sneaky Pete, a Double Drip with a snip of whip, and a Frap-Cap, heavy on the (imitating the blender) crcccrcccrcrch! crcrcrrrchcrcrch! Oh, and let's see, what's fresh? Okay, well I'll take three Raisin Happy Muffins, a French Moustache, and— ugh, a Fart Muffin, that is not for me. Oh, and I forgot to order my own coffee! Can I get a Taye Diggs, which is black and extra strong and smooth, but also very sweet?
    Rachel: (stares at Laurie, dumbfounded)

  • Jules' sex ed song for Travis:
    If you're heading in a sexy direction, you better use contraception, cause babies destroy your dreams!
  • Jules' Slightly Longer Morning Routine Song:
    I’m not predictable you say, Perhaps it’s true
    But when you wake, Here’s what you’ll do:
    Brush your teeth, Wash your face
    Check your nose, Just in case
    Eat your breakfast, Bacon and eggers
    Take your pill, So you won’t get preggers
    Find your mouthguard, Check your mail
    Workout time, If it’s late you bail
    Where’s your mouthguard, You threw it away
    It’s all the same, Everyday
    But we don’t mind, We’re glad to wait
    ‘Cause we all know, That right at eight
    You come downstairs, And on our knees
    All together: Coffee please!

  • The tag at the end of the season 4 premiere, which parodies the "coming this season" previews by showing events that WON'T happen including Jules, Ellie and Laurie all getting pregnant by the same man, Jules actually being a witch, and a cameo by Michelle Williams as Laurie's step-sister
  • “I always laugh at dudes in dresses. It’s a staple of British comedy!”

  • About Top Gun: If (Goose and Maverick) kissed it'd be a more honest movie wouldn't it?
  • Andy telling Lisa that he's willing to commit to a relationship by taking out LIVE snakes from his pockets. It Makes Sense in Context
  • From the season 4 finale:

    Jules: You know what the problem is with drinking when you're really sad?
    Tom: No.
    Jules: Me neither. Let's order another bottle
