  • Scott's father after he turns into a wolf. The makeup coupled with his matter-of-fact expression makes the scene priceless.
  • Scott going to the disco as the wolf, but in a suit. He looks like a Wookiee crossed with Barry Gibb.

     Season 1 
1x01 - Wolf Moon
  • Never forget that the very first words of the show were:
    Scott: Stiles, what the HELL are you doing?!
    Stiles: (who is hanging upside-down from a lower part of roof on Scott's house) You weren't answering your phone! Why do you have a bat?!
    Scott: I thought you were a predator!
  • Scott and Stiles go back in the woods to look for Scott's inhaler:
    Scott: No, I could have sworn this was it. I saw the body, the deer came running. I dropped my inhaler.
    Stiles: Maybe the killer moved the body?
    Scott: If he did, I hope he left my inhaler. Those things are like, 80 bucks!
  • Jackson's initial assumption that Scott's new found athletic abilities are due to steroids leads to this iconic scene:
    Jackson: Where. Are you. Getting. Your juice?
  • Scott and his Mom talking before the party. Scott is getting ready, and he gets the car keys:
    Mrs. McCall: Is this a party, or a date?
    Scott: Maybe both.
    Mrs. McCall: And her name is?
    Scott: Allison.
    Mrs.McCall: (smiles) Allison. Nice. (hands Scott the car keys)
    Scott: Thank you!
    Mrs. McCall: We don't need to have a talk, do we?
    Scott: (exasperated) Mom, I'm not having the safe sex talk with you!
    Scott: Are you serious?!

1x02 - Second Chance at First Line

  • Scott and his Mom:
    Mrs. McCall: It's not like you're on drugs, right?
    Scott: ...Right now?
    Mrs. McCall: Right now? I'm sorry, what do you mean, 'right now?' I mean, have you ever taken drugs?
    Scott: Have you?
    Mrs. McCall: ...Get some sleep.
  • Scott trying to get out of the game:
    Scott: I'm having some... personal issues.
    Coach: Is it a girl?
    Scott: No.
    Coach: Is it a guy? You know, our goalie Danny's gay.
    Scott: Yeah, I know, Coach. But that's not it.
    Coach: You don't think Danny's a good-looking guy?
    Scott: I think he's good looking. But I like girls! And that's not it, anyway!
    Coach: What? Is it drugs? Are you doing meth? 'Cause I had a brother that was addicted to meth. You should have seen what it did to his teeth. They were all cracked and rotted. It was - it was disgusting.
    Scott: (disturbed) Oh - my god. What happened?
  • These two parts of Scott and Lydia's exchange in math class:
    Lydia: Jackson's gonna play tomorrow, but he's not gonna be at his peak. And I prefer my boyfriend... at peak performance.; and
    Lydia: Fine! Don't play! We'll probably win anyway. And we'll go out after like we're planning, and I'll introduce Allison to all the hot players on the team. And Scott McCall can stay home, surfing the net for porn.
  • Stiles and his Dad:
    Sheriff Stilinski: What the hell do you think you're doing?
    Stiles: I'm just trying to help.
    Sheriff Stilinski: Uh-huh. Ok, well, how about you "help" me understand exactly how you came across this.
    Stiles: (sighs) We were looking for Scott's inhaler.
    Sheriff Stilinski: Which he dropped when?
    Stiles: The other night.
    Sheriff Stilinski: The other night when you were out here looking for the first half of the body?
    Stiles: Yes.
    Sheriff Stilinski: The night that you told me you were alone and Scott was at home?
    Stiles: Yes. No! Aw, crap.
    Sheriff Stilinski: So you lied to me?
    Stiles: That depends on how you define lying.
    Sheriff Stilinski: Well, I define it as not telling the truth. How do you define it?
    Sheriff Stilinski: Get the hell out of here.
    Stiles: Absolutely!
  • Stiles pretending to be busy reading a leaflet on the menstrual cycle at the hospital.

1x03 - Pack Mentality

  • Stiles, on what Scott did while changed.
    Stiles: Maybe you caught a rabbit or something.
    Scott: And did what?
    Stiles: Ate it.
    Scott (horrified): Raw?!
    Stiles: No, you stopped to bake it in a little werewolf oven.
  • Stiles on his status as a sidekick:
    Stiles: Why is it starting to feel like you're Batman and I'm Robin? I don't wanna be Robin all the time!
    Scott: Nobody's Batman and Robin ANY of the time!
    Stiles: Not even some of the time?
  • Scott and Stiles sit down at a table for lunch, and are soon joined by Lydia, Allison, Danny, Harley, and Brian. Then Jackson arrives and orders Brian to get up:
    Jackson: Get up.
    Brian: How come you never ask Danny to get up?
    Danny: Because I don't stare at his girlfriend's coinslot.
    Made even better that Lydia simply beams at Danny.
  • Scott talking big to Jackson:
    Scott: In fact, I'm a great bowler!
    (cue Gilligan Cut to the hallway)
    Stiles: You're a terrible bowler!
  • Allison's bowling advice.
    Allison: You're thinking too much. Just clear your mind, think about something else. Think about me... naked.
    • Which actually works, since it raises his heart rate, allowing his wolf senses to kick in.
  • And later, during the bowling game:
    Allison: Maybe you should stop pretending to suck just for his benefit.
    Lydia: Trust me, I do plenty of sucking just for his benefit.
    and Allison's reaction.
  • Stiles and the McCall family baseball bat.
  • The bat even gets a callback in 3x10 when Stiles brings it to the hospital. Ms. McCall asks about it and it gets lampshaded on it's ineffectiveness (it breaks after 30 seconds).
    • Which gets another callback in 3x12, when Stiles uses an aluminum bat to prop up the support beam before it falls, and Sheriff says "I told you metal was better than wood."
    • by 3x14, the bat is apparently Stiles' weapon of choice. When Lydia complains about being left in the car during a rescue, Stiles' comment is "I only have one bat!"

1x04 - Magic Bullet

  • Stiles and Derek:
    Derek: Start the car, or I'm gonna rip your throat out. With my teeth.
  • Scott is having dinner with the Argents, and Chris, ever the Overprotective Dad, is testing Scott by asking him if he wants any alcohol:
    Chris: Can I get you some beer?
    Scott: No - No thanks...
    Chris: Shot of tequila?
    Allison: Dad! Really?
  • And a few minutes later, after Allison had been bragging to her Aunt Kate about Scott with Chris shooting it down, there's a tense moment. Then:
    Scott: You know... on second thought, um... I think I'll take that shot of tequila.
  • To put this one in better context, Scott had gone to the Argents not only to study with Allison, but to find a bullet for Derek. (He does. After dinner he and Allison share a kiss goodnight. Right before he can escape, Kate stops him.) Kate accuses Scott of taking something from her bag. Scott denies this, Allison tries to defend Scott. Kate asks Scott to show them what's in his pockets. Tense music, you think that Scott is about to be in deep shit. And this is what happens:
    Allison: "Uh, I'll prove you wrong. It wasn't Scott going through your bags, it was me."
    Kate: "You?"
    Allison: (nods) "Mmhmm. Me." Holds up a condom.
  • The looks on everyone's faces are priceless.
    • Allison's is pretty much "What? I'm being responsible and using protection. Problem? Tough."; Chris' (her father) is cross of a Death Glare at Scott, "I'm gonNA KILL THIS BOY!" and horrified, "No, not my babygirl!"; Scott is all but pissing himself in fear, "I am NOT having sex with your daughter!" and "Oh god, why can't this door open so I can escape?!" and Kate's is "Damn, Allison, that's my girl!" with looks at Chris like "Well, YOU raised her to think for herself." Finally, Scott makes it out of the house, turns to look back, and turns back towards the camera with the biggest "Oh my God my girlfriend wants to have sex with me!" grin on his face.

1x05 - The Tell

  • Jackson and Lydia in Lydia's car outside the video store, "discussing" what movie to watch.
    Jackson: Hoosiers is not only the best basketball movie ever, it's the best sports movie ever made.
    Lydia: No.
    Jackson: It's got Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper!
    Lydia: No.
    Jackson: Lydia, I swear to God you're gonna like it.
    Lydia: No.
    Jackson: I am not watching The Notebook again!
    (Gilligan Cut to Jackson inside the store)
    Jackson: Can somebody help me find The Notebook?
  • Stiles and Danny:
    Stiles: One more question.
    Danny: What?!
    Stiles: Do you find me attractive?
    (Beat, while Danny gets a Flat "What" look on his face)
    (Stiles leans forward waiting for an answer and falls out of his seat)

1x06 - Heart Monitor

  • Scott swearing up and down he'll not be distracted from his training:
    Scott: If you can teach me [to help defeat the alpha], I can stay away from her.
    (Gilligan Cut to Allison and Scott making out.)
  • Scott's howl (the first one that is, the second one is a Moment of Awesome):
    Derek: You've got to be kidding me.
    Scott: Was that okay? I mean, it was a howl, right?
    Stiles: ...yeah, technically.
    Scott: What did it sound like to you?
    Stiles: Like a cat being choked to death, Scott.

1x08 - Lunatic

  • Stiles just walks in the front door of the McCall house.
    Mrs. McCall: (hears someone enter) Scott?
    Stiles: (comes through the front door) Stiles.
    Mrs. McCall: (notices something in his hand) Key.
    Stiles: Yeah, I, uh, had one made.
  • A quick one:

1x09 - Wolf's Bane

  • Most (If not all) of Derek and Stiles interactions in this episode.
    • Especially when Danny shows up.
    Danny: You're a horrible person.
    Stiles: I know, it keeps me up at night.
    • And in the car in front of the hospital.
    Derek: Oh, and one more thing. (slams Stiles' head into the steering wheel)
    Stiles: Holy god, what the hell was that-?!
    Derek: You know what that was for! Now go! Go!

1x10 - Co-Captain

  • Allison accidentally tazing Scott when he surprises her in the woods. (Good thing that werewolf healing ability comes in handy on this show). And the conversation after, when he gives back her necklace:
    Scott: Found this at school.
    (hands her her necklace, which he had stolen)
    Allison: (gasps) Oh my god! Thank you! I was starting to think it had been stolen!
    Scott: No, no, definitely not stolen, by anyone.

1x11 - Formality

  • When the sheriff pulls over Allison:
    Allison: I'm sorry I was going so fast...
    Sheriff Stilinski: You weren't going that fast. Just, uh, 75 in a 25, in a construction zone ...
    (later) Sheriff Stilinski definitely out of his depth : " I still have to write you a ticket ?"
  • Scott making sure Allison is safe in her room...then drifts off to sleep and falls off the roof. His tiny "ow" just sells it.
  • "I told them I'd sooner cut off my last remaining testicle than cut my best player!"
  • Jackson's crazed face when he asks Allison to the formal.
    • Made funnier by the fact that it's a Gilligan Cut. Jackson refuses to take Allison to the formal, Scott wolfs out and slams him into a door, cut to above.
  • Scott's quick thinking to get Coach Finstock off his neck at the dance: When the coach sees him there after having told him that he was not allowed to go, Scott quickly grabs Danny and dances with him, making the Coach's Angrish look like homophobia to the rest of the students. Finstock quickly backs off.

1x12 - Code Breaker

  • Peter's explanation about what will happen if Lydia turns:
    Stiles: "Once a month she'll go out of her freakin' mind and try to tear me apart."
    Peter: "Well actually, considering that she's a woman, twice a month."
  • The Alpha makes Stiles get into Scott's account.
    Alpha: His user name is 'Allison'? *Beat* His password is ALSO 'Allison'?
    Stiles: Still want him in your pack?
  • The expression on the Alpha's face afterwards should also count.

     Season 2 
2x01 - Omega
  • Scott, Stiles and Allison are looking for Lydia at Derek's House when Stiles notices a tripwire.
    Scott: (Hanging upside down) Stiles?
    Stiles: Yeah buddy? (Turns around) Oh.
    Scott: Next time you see a tripwire...don't trip it.
    Stiles: Noted.
  • Lydia's AWOL and Scott and Stiles think she's turning. They bring this up to Jackson, and...
    Scott: We think she's turning.
    Jackson: Turning... into...
    Stiles: A unicorn. What do you think, dumbass?
  • A naked Lydia appears and demands a jacket. Stiles fumbles around, trying to pull off his Dad's, and falls flat on his face. His Dad just rolls his eyes and takes his jacket off.
    • It should be noted Lydia had been covering her breasts with her arms, then gave up when she exasperatedly asked for a jacket since a bunch of people were already staring at her. Her just being so done with all this weirdness led to giving Stiles (and several others) an eyeful, which led to Stiles literally tripping over himself.

2x02 - Shape Shifted

  • The chain endlessly falling out of Stiles's locker as everyone turns to stare.
    Coach Finstock: Part of me wants to ask. The other part says knowing, will be more disturbing than anything I could ever imagine. So, I'm gonna walk away.... [turns and walks away]
  • Scott is tackling team members to get their scent and leaving the goal area repeatedly, despite warnings from Coach Finstock.
    Coach Finstock: Stilinski. What the hell is wrong with your friend?
    Stiles: Ah...He-he's failing two classes, he's a little socially awkward and if you look close enough his jawline is kind of uneven.
    Coach Finstock: ...That's interesting.
  • One of the hunters goes to the police station to kill a new werewolf on the full moon. Derek gets the wolf out of there and leaves Stiles behind with the unconscious hunter and a mess of the jail cells. Enter Stiles's Dad.
    Stiles: *Beat* Uh, he did it.

2x03 - Ice Pick

  • Allison offers to show Scott how to ice skate but he laughs and reminds her of his enhanced senses. Then he gets on the ice...
    Scott: See...(falls on his ass)
  • All Scott's fails at the ice rink.

2x04 - Abomination

  • Stiles relaying messages between Scott and Allison.
  • Scott and Allison both thinking that Stiles is talking about bestiality when he mentions the bestiary.
    Stiles: He probably means a bestiary.
    Scott: A what?
    Stiles: A bestiary.
    Scott: (laughs) I think you mean beastiality.
    Stiles: No, pretty sure I don't. It's like an encyclopedia of mythical creatures.
    Allison: I think you mean-
    Stiles: No, I mean bestiary! And the two of you, I don't wanna know what's going on in your heads!
    • In fairness, Allison is dating a werewolf...
  • Stiles dumping Derek into the water when Derek tells him that he doesn't have the guts to go after the phone. What makes it funnier is that not only did Stiles fail to contact Scott but Derek is not even mad that he did it.

2x06 - Frenemy

  • Scott getting annoyed with Stiles.
    Stiles: What? Scott c'mon. I'm a 147 pounds of pale skin and fragile bone. Sarcasm is my only defense.
  • Scott and Stiles chase the kanima into a bar.
    Scott: Dude! Everyone in here's a dude! I think we're in a gay club.
    Stiles: (surrounded by drag queens) Man, nothing gets past those keen werewolf senses, huh Scott?
  • Which becomes a Call-Back when Stiles comments that he invited several friends to get Lydia's party going. Gilligan Cut to several drag queens and their friends at the door. Lydia stares at them for a beat and invites them in.
  • The entire gay bar sequence until the kanima attack is hilarious in fact. Scott and Stiles attempting to buy some drinks with their ACTUAL IDs, Scott getting sent a drink...
  • Made funnier by the fact that instead of uncomfortable, Scott looks incredibly proud of himself. Funnier still in that Stiles, who has the Running Gag of wondering if gay guys find him attractive, is openly annoyed that Scott got a drink and he didn't.
  • Or the exchange afterward between Stiles and his dad:
    Sheriff Stilinski: Why are you always at the scene of the crime?! And here, of all places?!
    Stiles: What, it's a club! We were clubbing! At the club!
    Sheriff Stilinski: Not exactly your type of club.
    Stiles: Well, dad, there's a conversation that we-
    Sheriff Stilinski: You're not gay.
    Stiles: Wha - I could be!
    Sheriff Stilinski: Not dressed like that.
  • Scott and Stiles are trying to figure out what to do with Jackson.
    Stiles: I got an idea.
    Scott: Does it involve breaking the law?
    Stiles: By now don't you think that's a given?
    Scott: I was just trying to be optimistic.
    Stiles: Don't bother.

2x07 - Restraint

  • Ms. McCall desperately trying to act like a serious parent despite her habit of Hands-Off Parenting. She grounds Scott but slowly realizes that its less than practical after attempting to confine him to the house (he has work), take away his TV (it's broken), his computer (he needs it for school) she finally hits on something she can use.
    Scott: I need the computer for school.
    Mrs McCall: Then no... uh [sees Stiles waiting in the hallway] no Stiles!
    Stiles: Wh- No Stiles?!
    Mrs McCall: [shouting] No Stiles!
  • Stiles and Scott discussing that Matt could be controlling the Kanima in between cuts to an entirely normal-looking Matt eating a bag of popcorn. Bonus because Stiles was right.

2x08 - Raving

  • Stiles, Erica, and Isaac are watching over a drugged Kanima!Jackson in a locked room. All of a sudden, the drugs wear off. Cue a collective and hilarious This Is Gonna Suck look on their faces before they immediately hightail it.
  • Followed by them desperately holding the door closed, and looking for something to block it with... then the Kanima bursts right through the wall next to them.

2x09 - Party Guessed

  • The "Sneak Peek" for this episode has a brilliant moment. Derek has locked up the baby wolves for the full moon, and they've lost control and are trying with all their might to break free.
    Derek: *Completely casual, on the phone* Scott, can you call me back, I'm probably gonna need some help... *Hangs up, looks around at the chaos* DEFINITELY going to need some help..."
  • This Call-Back, but even more so the expressions it elicits.
    Derek: Tonight you’re going to want to kill anything you can find.
    Erica: Good thing I had my period last week, then.
  • Stiles is under the influence of wolfsbane punch and is hallucinating, and Scott tries to get him to sober him up but fails. A fellow partygoer, Danielle, tells Scott that she can sober him up. Scott's skeptical, so she proves her point by dunking Stiles into the fountain. Doubles as Mood Whiplash as Stiles's hallucination was a Tear Jerker about his worst fear.
    Danielle: How do you feel?
    Danielle: He's sober.

2x10 - Fury

  • Scott and Stiles expose to Stiles' father what they discovered about the Kamina's victim, namely that all the murders are connected to the swimming team and Matt is likely the murderer. Stiles' father, still not really buying it, asks why Matt would want to kill the whole swimming team. Stiles' theory? Because the team sucks.
  • Stiles and Derek have both been paralyzed by the kanima. Derek's managed to get his claws out and digging into his leg in order to kickstart the healing and get the kanima's venom out of his system. When Stiles asks how that's going:
    Derek: I can move my toes.
    Stiles: Dude, I can move MY toes.

2x11 - Battlefield

  • Finstock's inspirational speech to the team before the championship game. Melissa and Stiles recognize it from somewhere... and then realize that he's reciting the climactic speech from Independence Day, word for word. The rest of the speech is interspersed with the two snarking about how ridiculous the whole thing is.
    Melissa: He doesn't know any sports speeches?
    Stiles: I don't think he cares.
    • Finstock's not just doing the speech. . . he's wearing almost the exact same outfit as Bill Pullman wore in the same scene, imitates most of his physical movements (playing a few up for Rule of Funny), and is even using a bullhorn with detachable microphone (like the one in the movie), in small concrete lockeroom.
  • Stiles' utter disbelief that Coach Finstock is letting him play as well as Sheriff Stilinski's disbelief that Stiles is actually playing.
    Sheriff Stilinski: MY SON IS ON THE FIELD!
    Stiles: Oh, dear god.
  • When Peter offers Derek his help, he questions:
    Derek: Why would I want help from a total psycho?
    Peter: First off, I'm not a total pyscho. You're the one who slashed my throat wide open, but we're all works in progress right? So...

2x12 - Master Plan

  • Scott introducing Peter to Isaac:
    Isaac: Who is this guy?
    Scott: That's Peter, Derek's uncle. Little while ago he tried to kill us all, then we set him on fire and Derek ripped his throat out.
    Peter: Hi.
    Isaac (quietly): Good to know.
  • When the group is looking for information on the kanima, Peter pulls something out of a secret compartment in the staircase.
    Derek: What's that? A book?
    Peter: No, its a laptop. What century are you living in?
  • The Kanima moves. Scott and Isaac, two werewolves with super strength, super speed, fangs and claws, back away, leaving Melissa, Scott's petite, entirely human mother next to the body bag.
    Scott: Zip, Mom, zip!
  • While trying to get a Scott and Isaac to bring a cocooned Jackson to them, Peter and Derek finding out about a supposedly evolved Kanima that Jackson may turn into if the situation isn't resolved soon. After the two see an apparently disturbing picture, Peter finds a video.
    Derek: He's turning into that? That... has wings.
    Peter:(small voice) I can see that.
    Peter: Look, someone actually made an animation of it. Maybe it's less frightening if we... (clicks play, and a disgusting screech emanates from the laptop. Peter immediately slams the laptop shut.) Nope, not at all. We should probably meet them halfway.

     Season 3 
3x01 - Tattoo
  • When Scott gets a tattoo, Stiles is looking around the store while the tattoo artist prepares himself:
    Stiles: Sure you don't want something like this? (shows a picture of a kanima and earns a Disapproving Look) Too soon?
  • When Stiles immediately faints at the sight of Scott getting the tattoo.
  • Stiles is completely willing to skip the first day of school to look into the deer attack from the previous night. His father suggests begging, bribing, and extorting him to make him leave before literally dragging him out of his room and out of the house.
  • Scott and Stiles overhears the principal demanding that the damage in the library be cleaned up...and holds up a sword, wondering what the hell it is. So the two quickly book it.
  • Stiles notices a bandage on Lydia's heel.
    Stiles: What happened to you?
    Lydia: Prada bit me.
    Stiles: Your dog?
    Lydia: No, my designer handbag. Yes my dog.
  • Scott learns the word 'ephemeral' at the start of the episode and keeps using it in odd places in conversation, earning him weird looks. Near the end of the episode he makes a pensive speech about how everything changes and is so ephemeral. Stiles considers this a moment.
    Stiles: Studying for the PSA Ts?
    Scott: Yeah.
    Stiles: Nice.

3x02 - Chaos Rising

  • Isaac and Derek have a discussion which basically amounts to "But I don't like Peter!" "No one likes Peter." Cue Peter coming in and saying he has excellent hearing and that whatever they have to say, they can say to his face, leading to this:
    Derek (bluntly): We don't like you. Now shut up and help us.
  • Stiles provided:
  • Stiles is skeptical that Derek can punch through a wall. He has Derek make a fist, and Derek promptly punches his hand. Scott doesn't know how to react, Peter is dreadfully amused, and Stiles acknowledges Derek can punch through the wall.
  • His interactions with Peter. But especially this:
    Stiles: They’re an Alpha pack, right? So shouldn’t they have a lair?
    Peter: They’re werewolves, not Bond villains.
    Stiles: Wait a sec. Wait a sec. Maybe they’re living there. You know? Like, maybe the bank vault reminds them of their little wolf dens.
    Peter: Wolf dens?
    Stiles: Yeah, wolf dens. Where do you live?
    Peter: In an underground network of caves hidden deep in the woods.
    Stiles: Whoa, really?
    Peter: No, you idiot. I have an apartment downtown.

3x03 - Fireflies

  • Derek and Isaac in the car.
    Isaac: So your, uhhh, your sister...
    Isaac: Sorry, it's a bad time. I'm sorry. I'll ask later, it's fine.
    Derek: (Another Disapproving Look combined with a Death Glare).
    Isaac: Or never. I'm good with never, yeah.

3x04 - Unleashed

  • Stiles realizes that the latest three deaths are all virgin sacrifices. Stiles is a virgin, and loudly bemoans that his virginity is literally a threat to his life.
    Danny: Alright, I'll do it. Be at my place at nine. Plan to stay the night. I like to cuddle.
    Stiles: Bwuh! (Beat) That was so sweet. Are you kidding?
    Danny: Yes, I was kidding.
    Stiles: You shouldn't toy with a guy's emotions like that, Danny, it's not attractive!
  • There's also Isaac stealing Aiden's bike to piss him off. All with a smug grin on his face.

3x05 - Frayed

  • The look on Kali's face when Deaton completely non-reacts to her flashing him the Alpha eyes and baring her teeth at him. She seems absolutely baffled that it had no effect on him.
  • Stiles needs the coach to stop the bus during a long road trip, but he adamantly refuses. Stiles then notices a student who has been car sick the entire ride and sits beside him.
    Stiles: Hey Jared. How ya doin'?
    (Stiles puts on an epic slasher smile. Jared gets an epic This Is Gonna Suck face.)
    (cut to the bus stopped and the passengers running off in disgust)
  • Stiles reveals to Scott (and the viewing audience) that he is completely aware of the fact that Allison and Lydia have been following them "in secret" for hours.

3x07 - Currents

  • Scott and Isaac's adorably pathetic attempt at keeping Melissa safe from the darach:
    Scott: You were on watch last!
    Isaac: What are you talking about? You were on watch last!
    Scott: No, I wasn't! You were on watch last!
    Isaac (to Melissa): I might have been on watch last.
    Melissa: My heroes.
    • Those three are made of adorable and funny together. There's also the great scene from the second season finale when Scott and Isaac tell Melissa to zip the body bag around the kanima while it reflexively bites out. Melissa gives a great WTF expression before zipping the bag, while the werewolves back away scared.
      Scott: Zip, Mom, zip!
  • Cora tells Lydia to stay away from Aiden.
    Lydia: My last boyfriend was a homicidal lizard. I think I can handle a werewolf.

3x09 - The Girl Who Knew Too Much

  • When Stiles feels like Ethan is threatening him...
    Stiles: Is he looking at me? Are you threatening me? You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to break off an extra large branch of mountain ash, wrap it in wolfsbane, roll it in mistletoe, and shove it up your freakin-
    Scott: Stiles, okay!
    • Stiles nicknaming the Ethan and Aidan fusion "Voltron Wolf."

3x10 - The Overlooked

  • The "Oh, for fuck's sake" face Ms. Blake makes when she looks around her in the elevator—Derek won't let go of her arm, Scott's glaring at her, and Stiles is gripping his bat and shaking as if it's all he can do to not fly at her. Her reaction is hilarious.
  • Whilst Scott, Stiles, Derek, Peter, and Jennifer are running from the merged Alpha twins (this) (summary) (of part) (of it is) (fairly accurate)

    Stiles: If you can ask the questions without the usual level of stupid.
  • Stiles and Lydia go to the guidance counselor's office, to find only the Sassy Black Girl Danielle who dunked Stiles' head underwater to sober him, not Ms. Morrell. She is quite the snarker; annoyed that they have seemingly busted in without an appointment, annoyed when Stiles takes out the private files Ms. Morrell has, etc. When Stiles notices the tree drawing in Lydia's file matches the one he saw her drawing in class, and they open her notebook to reveal pages and pages of the exact same tree, drawn exactly identical down to the last line:
    Girl: Okay, you can have my session. You got bigger issues.
    • Lydia immediately contradicting herself when Stiles finds her file.

    Isaac (also serious): Yes you are.
  • Also in "Galvanize", Isaac attempts to put the moves on Allison. When swooping in for a kiss doesn't quite work, he instead pulls his shirt off. Allison does the same...and they don't get any further because at that moment her dad walks in.

  • A bunch of kids in costume come up to Derek while he's by his car. He slowly reaches in the car, staring at them... and pulls out a big bag of candy. Then wolfs out and scares the shit out of them. The self-satisfied look on his face afterwards is priceless. The brawny dork.
  • Stiles gives Scott and Kira the key cards to get into the the precinct, the Evidence Room and the Sheriff's Office.
    Scott: You didn't steal these, did you?

    Meredith: (looking at Isaac) He's my type.

    • Isaac and Stiles' whisper argument over how to get Meredith to tell them where Lydia is.
    Isaac: I'm just saying...

     Other / Meta 
  • More meta, but an episode of Wolf Watch has various members of the Teen Wolf cast listing their most memorable romantic moments of the series. At the end, Jill Wagner (Kate, and the host of Wolf Watch), completely serious, insists that her favorite romantic moment was "Kate licking Derek's abs. That was super romantic."
    • The episode after that laid some additional context to the ab-licking scene. Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, and Dylan O'Brien were all living together during the first season, and Posey and Dylan got a hold of the script first. They spent the next few days making fun of Hoechlin, and later gathered a group of people onto the set on the day of that scene so that everybody could watch.
    Tyler Hoechlin: I remember Posey and Dylan were in their room, and then they came out and they were like, "Dude, have you read the script yet?" And I was like, "No, not yet." And they were like (excited), "Kate totally licks your abs, bro."

How well does it match the trope?
