The Co-Optional Lounge

  • Episodes 4 & 5 of the Co-Optional Lounge (in which the crew plays Battlestar Galactica) are rife with hilarity. The funniest moment arguably being when Crendor inadvertently sends himself to the brig.
    • If that doesn't make you laugh Totalbiscuit's contagious laugh probably will.
  • At the climax of Episode 8 of the Co-Optional Lounge, TB is about to win their game of Talisman when Jesse resolves to acquire the Gong of War in order to pull TB off of the Tower and to effectively destroy TB's chances of winning. What ensues also doubles as a Crowning Moment Of Awesome for Jesse.
    Crendor: "It's an Easter miracle!"
  • The CoxCon 2015 Co-Optional Lounge: Whenever Crendor wins in Bucket of Doom
  • Towards the end of one session of Secret Hitler, Jesse's reaction to the then-current turn, then Crendor actually winning as Hitler, and just as the liberal TB successfully had him elected as chancellor. TB reacts accordingly.
  • The sixth episode of Secret Hitler saw Cry getting shot in one of the games. Because dead players are not allowed to speak normally for the rest of the game, he instead proceeds to provide snarky comments at the appropriate moments using a wavering voice with an echo effect, which is later dubbed as 'Ghost Cry'.
    Genna I said yes [to voting in Toasterwoman] because I didn't have any reason not to trust her, and I also wanted to know if John was Hitler!
    TB Well, now you know that I'm not!
    Sinvicta: Why would you want to know if TB was Hitler?! If he was, that would mean the end of the game! If he was liberal we could still keep going!
    Genna: I forgot about that!
    Ghost Cry: Likely excuuuuuuuuuuuse!

    Ghost Cry: You trust Crendor like dummieeeees!
    TB: Fuck off Ghost Cry!
    • TB also spends that entire game with the word 'suspicious' written with an arrow pointing to him and a 'Shoot me' on his side of the table.
  • In the 8th episode of Secret Hitler, Jesse Cox was Hitler for the first game. In the second game, everyone is convinced he's liberal except Nika, to the point that TB gives him Chancellorship for the first round after the 3rd fascist card was played. The next bit of dialogue goes as follows:
    Sinvicta: [Jesse] are you Hitler?
    Jesse: (*Beat*) (Pulls out Hitler role card) Yeah, of course I'm fucking Hitler.
    Liberals: What?
TGS Podcast
  • Episode 14, where the trio go live together for the first time in the series' run, has a lot of funny moments, but one of the best is when TB discovers that the Jaffa cakes shipped to Jesse has the expiry date of '1272' on the box after they literally fed one to Dodger for a taste test. Hilarity Ensues as the trio go through confusion, amusement and denial.
    Jesse: I think what we're about to find out is that we've killed Dodger live on air.
    TB: 'Best Before: 1272.' No, I'm actually deadly serious. *shows the box to Jesse* Look, see?
    Jesse: *takes a look* Oh my god! *cracks up* No way!
    TB bursts out laughing and doesn't stop for a good while
    Dodger: Wait. *takes a look at the box and then drops it as she shakes in silent laughter*
    Jesse: I feel like we should be pouring out this [champagne] for our soon-to-be dead homie. I'm so sorry.
    Dodger: Those are some seriously old Jaffa cakes, dude.

    Then TB calls for a break because the three are laughing so hard, and when we come back they're still laughing.

    Jesse: Wait, that can't be right! *sends TB into laughter again as he checks the box*
    TB: Oh, you don't think it's from the 13th century?!
    Jesse: 'Best Before, 1272.' But it has the new stuff, so it can't be that old. Maybe it means, like— *beat* No, it says 1272.
  • In one of the final TGS podcast episodes they discuss Australia and their issue with anal probing, and while the discussion naturally goes into the topic of Suspension of Disbelief the logic for it was a tad odd.
    Jesse: Anal probing does not occur because it's too damn hard!
    • Also from that episode, the talk about Jesse liking his players 18 plus.
    Dodger: "And now when people find you at conventions they can look at their ID and say, 'You know, next year'."
    TB bursts out laughing
    Jesse: Here's the thing, I'll look at them and say 'For you, I'll wait'
