Subspace Emissary

Episode 1
  • At the end of the very first match — an Emile/Jon double Kirby on Mario Curb-Stomp Battle — Emile gets his mitts on a bumper and throws it straight down, knocking Jon right off the edge of the stadium. Emile then gently floats down, hits the bumper, and is flung off the side himself, all in Slow Motion.
    Tim: "Super Kirby massacre!"
  • Emile calls his cat, "Mah Boi".
  • "He had stickers in his underpants!"
  • Emile and Jon 'wombo combo'-ing Mario.
  • This hilarious exchange after the first match:
    Emile: "And with that PILLARS!!"
    Tim: "And we cut to...pillars."
    Emile: "God this place is just so dark and dank," (at the same time Pit's name appears) "this place is the pits."
    Jon and Tim: -both groan at the same time- "So nice, you had to say it twice, right?"
    Emile: "I know! Hey, you rhymed! You made a pun yourself!"
    Jon: "Rhyming is not a pun."
    Emile: "It is in my book." (Tim starts laughing)
    Jon: "You have a really weird book."
    Emile: "I don't read!"
    Jon: "I know! That's why it's a weird book! I'm assuming it's drawn in crayons, and has one of those pop-up things..."
  • Emile admits that he always thought Palutena was pronounced "pollute-ina." The guys decide that Pollute-ina sounds like a Captain Planet and the Planeteers villain.

Episode 2

  • At the very start, Emile ends up making yet another Incredibly Lame Pun:
    Emile: "So, we're going to be starting off here on the Sea of Clouds. Told you we'd be 'seeing' you guys-"
    Jon: "No. Don't you dare."
    Tim: (groans)
    Emile: (As Zelda and Kirby are travelling over the clouds) "Jon, you need to get your head out of the clouds."
    Jon: (groans) They just keep getting worse. Where's- I need to throw something at you now..."
    • It gets better when one remembers how the first episode ended.
      Emile: "Join us next week when we tackle, ze Sea of Clouds. ''Sea'' you guys then!"
      Jon: "No."
      Tim: "Nooo."
      Jon: "Nooooo."
      Tim: "Nooooooo!"
      Jon: "I'm leaving now." (end of episode)
    • Later on, Jon makes a "just hanging around" joke while hanging off a ledge, and gets hit right away.
      Emile: "You see?! When you make bad puns, you just get punished!"
  • Extremely early into episode 2, the guys somehow start talking about how royalty works, when the original topic of discussion was the character select screen. It's because Tim choose to play Zelda because he wanted to be the prettiest princess, and then Emile asked if that would make Josh the prince, since Tim was his wife in the "Meet JoshJepson" song that he's still obsessed with, and... yeah.
  • Their rule for giving everyone a chance to play is to switch off whenever they reach a selection screen. The reason it's funny is because there are times where the entirety of one of their sessions was running forward until they hit a Cutscene.
  • Jon does find a way to kill Emile: break blocks beneath him when he's player 1 to drop him to his death.
    • And later, while he's not playing, Emile keeps rooting for Jon to enter the wrong door and fall into a lava pit so he and Tim can take damage. And whenever they do fall into the pit, it's a moment of funny in and of itself.
  • Emile and Jon during a battle with loads of Mites:
    Jon: "Ha ha, maniacal laughter..."
    Emile: "Oh God, we have Mites."
    Jon: "Pikmin! It's Pikmin!
    Emile: "Attack the portal! ATTACK THE PORTAL!"
    Jon: "I'm busy, attacking not-the-portal!"
    Emile: "HAAAAAAH!" *destroys the portal* "HAAAAA-boom. I made the portal go boom."
  • At 10:15, Jon has fun with the cannons, while Tim just stands off to the side, waiting.
  • Pretty much the entirety of the Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong level.
  • During one section, some text pops onscreen to say "No commentary for a few seconds" as the commentary cuts out temporarily. A while later, with no explanation, the text appears again, even though there's still commentary going on.

Episode 3

  • During the start of episode 3:
    Tim: "Could this get any worse?"
    (Primids appear)
    Jon: "And then it does."
    Tim: "We need someone like..."
    (Pig King Statue appears)
  • Emile tries to make out with polo shirts.
  • While outrunning Porkynote , Emile decides to annoy Jon:
    Emile: "We're really outrunning him, so you know what? MOVE FASTER POKEY!"
  • Defeating Porky results in a slow-motion shot of Lucas (Emile) being launched away. As Jon says, "To space!"
  • Emile names one of the Bytans Joe, and then when he explains the joke, the pun is so bad it completely stops the commentary. Joe Biden.
  • Jon singing the "Ninja Rap" by Vanilla Ice while playing as Squirtle.
  • Emile taking the opportunity to get in "DOH, I MISSED!" at the best possible moment — just as Wario appears and misses Ness with his Dark Gun.

Episode 4

  • Emile and Tim backtracking to get a Stock Ball... and Tim immediately dying.
  • "Speaking of Majora's Mask, here's Twilight Princess."
  • During the fourth episode, they get their turn order mixed up again, and captions note that Tim should be playing that round. When they see that it's Yoshi's debut, Jon then hands Tim his controller so he can play, ironically and unknowingly fixing the order in the process.
    • Doubles somewhat as a Heartwarming Moment.
    • Gets even better in the next episode, when the turn order just gets totally freaking screwed over by their mistake.
    • And when they figure this out, they end up having to let Tim play 9 turns in a row to sort it all out.
  • The Beige Prose opening of Episode 4.
  • After Tim misheard "Venture" as "Vengeance", Jon had this insight to offer:
    Jon: "You know what? If I think vengeance, I don't think Yoshi."
  • Emile jokingly calls himself a suicide bomber and then gets blown up by a Bob-omb.

Episode 5

  • The gratuitous Fanservice shot of Zero-Suit!Samus descending from an air vent:
    Jon: "That's the most scandalous—"
    Emile: "Rated T for Teen!"
    Jon: "That's probably actually what got [the game] a T-rating, to be honest."
  • At one point, Emile and Jon are too busy arguing to notice that Tim died three times in a row. It's not until they see the game over screen that they realize what just happened.
  • "I want a bow that shoots bows!"
  • Tim singing Jon's "I am an asshole" song. He's supposed to be the nice one!
  • The return of the fake aliases "Pedro Martinez III Esq." and "Thomas Jefferson".

Episode 6

  • The episode starts off with Emile hurting his foot while getting into position.
  • A bit of an Ironic Echo: at one point, after Tim gets two game overs in a row and starts sounding dejected, Emile tries to sound "caring" and says "Are you okay?" in a voice that Jon (and possibly Tim) perceives as mocking. Later on:
    Emile: "You're going to pay!"
    Tim: *mocking voice* "Are you okay?"
    • Even better is that Emile doesn't realize it's an Ironic Echo and only thinks of it as a rhyme.
  • There was a moment in the last cutscene of episode 6. Bowser shows up to take one of Dedede's (character) statues and TRG wonder who he was there for.
    Emile: "Guess who Bowser's here for! I'll give you a hint, it's not Luigi."
  • Jon's impersonations of Squirtle were a quick chuckle. His impersonation of Squirtle with a Super Mushroom was a laughing riot.

Episode 7

  • The entirety of the intro to Episode 7, which includes the guys introducing themselves as characters from Home Improvement to the Wii crashing on them. The fact that they're recording at Jon's house instead of a hotel for once, so they can be as loud as they want, doesn't hurt either.
    • The Home Improvement opening is made even funnier by how Tim doesn't get the reference and goes Off the Rails into a completely different parody, as well as Jon having a very noticeable voice crack while saying "I don't think that's how Home Improvement went."
    • Best part about the crash: it takes them around 30 seconds to notice it. They manage to go on a tangent about Back to the Future of all things, all with the droning crash noise in the background.
  • The ending with Jon as Billy Mays pitching Silly Putty.
    Jon: "So...this has been... Billy Mays."
    Emile: (Beat) "You're not Billy Mays."
    Tim: "Helllllllloooooooooo, yeah, that's right!"
    Jon: "Billy Mays here for Silly Putty!"
    Emile: "Mighty Putty!"
    Jon: "I keep doing that!"
  • Somehow, Emile and Tim end up using up nearly all their lives in the span of a few seconds.
  • Emile telling Tim to grab the hammer before Charizard does in the battle against the latter. Charizard does get the hammer... and then promptly ends up falling off the stage.
    • Emile and Jon sound so similar that it might have been either of them. It's such a dry observation that it makes the actual sight of Charizard wielding the hammer look that much more ridiculous.
    Jon: (nonchalantly) "Someone should grab that hammer before Charizard does."
  • The Call-Back where part of the (in)famous "Meet JoshJepson" song was sung again.
    • Made even funnier when it's Tim singing the "Tim, his wife!" part, since he had such a negative reaction to it at first.
  • "Say hello to my nipple knives."
  • The entire 'go be Canadian somewhere else' exchange (with Tim on Jon's side).
    • "Like in Canada? Where we are right now?!"
  • There was also Jon commenting on one of their (many) failures over the course of Subspace:
    Jon: "Since we're explaining things we got wrong in the first place... we know how to fight Greaps. We're just stupid."

Episode 8

  • Episode eight's intro, with a particularly jerkish but true Take That! from Emile.
    Tim: "I'm Dumb. This is Dumber, and over on my left is Dumbest."
    Emile: "WHY AM I DUMBEST?"
    Jon: "I'm rolling with this!"
    Emile: "Clearly, I'm not the dumbest if I've managed a channel that's gotten further than both of yours combined."
    Tim: "OHH!"
    Jon: "Once again, as I've stated in the past, what a douche!"
  • During the battle with Galleom, Emile began shouting attack names for each move the monster did.
    • "FALL ON FACE!"
  • Everyone's reactions to how Jon somehow survived the first battle against Galleom despite being hit by almost every attack used by the boss.
  • The group's reaction to Charizard pretty much One-Hit KOing Galleom in the second battle with a single move.
  • The entirity of the scene where Emile and Tim kept dying on the elevators.

Episode 9

  • When Ridley appears in episode 9, what does Jon say?
    Jon''': "Hey guys! It's Ridley and I've stopped falling!"
  • Emile says that Zero Suit Samus's name is technically inaccurate, as she's actually wearing a suit. Jon replies to this with "It's not a birthday suit." Emile brings up that it's Jon's birthday. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Emile's reaction to the stage they will be doing next time when he realizes what happens at the beginning of the stage. Jon's reaction makes it even better.

Episode 10

  • Fun with Pikmin! (OK, more like fun with Steve, but...)
    • When ROB flings the Pikmin off of him, Emile yells "NO, STE-"...and then denies it.
    • Jon cheerfully re-enacts a conversation between Olimar and Steve while Emile (fake) sobs in the background.
    • Emile reeeeeeally doesn't want to play as Steve. Jon is enjoying this way too much. (Maybe because he can't actually kill Emile in this game, and this is his way of getting revenge?)
    Jon (Emile): ("NO!") "YES! So," ("No!") "so I've got both controllers in my hands right now, cause I'm not letting Chugga touch—" ("No! No no!") "—it just yet, and I believe it's Chugga and Tim..." ("Give me that... NO!") "and Chugga is player 1," ("Give me...") "so he is playing as Olimar." ("No, why?! No...") "So Tim, who would you like to be?"
    • Emile throwing Pikmin off the stage while yelling "DIE! DIE! DIE!"
    Jon: "You're starting to scare me, actually."
    Emile: "Starting to?"
  • Jon as Captain Falcon
    • "Falcon's nipples, they are very prone to explosions, it is very messy. Captain Falcon apologizes in advance."
    • "MAJESTIC!"
  • Tim made an epic recovery while playing Captain Falcon... without actually knowing he was playing as him.
  • "I "meta" game? Like what, at a club?"
  • Emile's midichlorians were off the scale, and he might fulfill that prophecy~
  • "That was funny, whatever it was."
  • Anytime Nana gets killed in the stage, especially Jon's reactions to it.
  • The Glices frankly epic combo abilities in The Glacial Peak.
    • And then they do it again in The Great Maze!

Episode 11

  • Emile finally uses a Smart Bomb correctly... only for an enemy to knock him into its explosion anyway.
    Jon: "You two doin' okay in here...?"
    Emile: "We're monkeys!"
    Jon: "I- (beat) I know."
  • Tim and Emile are fighting the false princesses and throw a Deku Nut, but they accidentally end up only stunning themselves with it.
  • Jon realizes that since they're in his house, he can kick Emile and Tim (mainly Emile) out whenever he wants. He's overwhelmed in awe.
    • So awed, in fact, that for awhile the only thing you hear him say is:
    Jon: "I can kick you out of my house! I- I can kick you out of my house! Oh man!" (reverently) "I can kick you out of my house..."
  • The guys discuss Hawke's sticker and Emile asks if his first name was Mike. Mike Hawke. Figure out why that's funny. But wait, there's more. After that, Emile and Jon simultaneously kick Emile (yes, Emile actually helped Jon with this) out of Jon's house, leaving Jon and Tim alone to sign off for that episode.
  • More puns from Emile after Snake (Tim) gets a mushroom:
    Tim: "I can't fit through the door..."
    Emile: "It's Anaconda!"
    Jon: (Beat) "Really?"
  • Yet another Emile pun, but Jon sees this one coming a mile away.
    Jon: "How dare you talk over David Hayter!"
    Emile: "I guess that makes me a..."
    Jon: "No, no, no, no, no, no, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!"
    Emile: "...HATER!"
    Jon: "AUGH! I knew you were gonna say it immediately."

Episode 12

  • Emile's return. Jon and Tim introduce themselves and start wondering if they're missing someone. Then:
    *knocking at the door*
    Tim: "Oh no!"
    Jon: "Dude, dude!" *opens the door* "I... Jeez, are you okay?"
    Emile: "Next time you leave me out there, move faster, Pokey!"
    Jon: "Oh you... you're going back outside, now!"
    Emile: "For another week?!"
    Jon: "I unlock the door and everything, and this how I get treated!"
  • Duon. It takes Tim and Jon six tries to defeat it.
    • Here are some of the highlights from the Duon battles:
    Jon: "And I hope that I don't di-" *dies* "-iie. Because that's our last life."
    Emile: "You still have Falco."
    Jon: *as Tim is launched into the background* "Yeah, but now if Tim dies—" *notices Tim dying* "—like that."
    Emile: "Pffff. Brilliant! Every time we mentioned something going bad, it did. When will we ever learn?"
    Emile: "You're pitiful! You're pitiful!"
    Jon: "Thank you, Al."
    Tim: "It's truuue!"
    Jon: *dead serious* "Tim? We have guns."
  • An unfortunate yet hilarious moment of battle choreography: against a group of sword-wielding Primids, Emile (Pikachu) comes across a smart bomb and a green shell. His approach knocks the shell at an enemy, who hits it back with its sword, which knocks Emile into another enemy, who knocks him off the stage. The shell also hits the Smart Bomb, which sets it off, catching multiple Primids and Tim (Samus) in it, which ends up killing Tim. No one in the group could work out what just happened, how many lives were lost in the confusion, or whether or not Emile improperly used another smart bomb.
  • After discussing Superman 64:
    Emile (to Jon): "Dude, this [episode] could come out a year from now and you would not be that far [into your LP of Superman 64]."
    Jon: "Well fuck you, too!"
  • Jon pointing out that an upcoming segment of the game will feature the return of Captain Falcon, meaning the return of Olimar and "Steve" as well. Emile is horrified at this, especially when Jon points out that Emile's next turn would have him playing that segment.
  • Jon's unexpected Big "WHAT?!" when Emile mentions he doesn't like the music currently playing.
    Emile: "I never liked this song that much."
    Jon: WHAT? I love this song!"
    Emile: "It... sounds like someone farting."
    Jon: "It's called jazz music."
    Tim: (At the same time as Jon) "You know, in the bathroom!"
    Emile: (Laughs) "Tim!"
  • Tim singing "In the bathroom" in an effeminate, vaguely English accent. "Een the b-ah-throom!"
    Jon: "In the b-ah-throom?"
  • Some time after discussing Fox and Falco crashing their Arwings (right before the infamous Duon battle), we're treated to this exchange:
    Emile: "And robot Dialga is like... Siamese twins with robot Palkia."
    Jon: Oh, there's Falco. He just felt like showing up."
    Emile: "He just jumped out of the plane again."
    Jon: [Chokes back laughter] "He just — I hope those things have autopilot, otherwise..."
  • Emile trying to take a stab at Jon's update schedule for the second time in two minutes:
    Emile: "You know what, no 'move faster, Pokey'. Your letting me back in the door and remembering me was like your upload schedule."
    Jon: "Was that actually supposed to be funny?"
    Emile: "Maybe~"
    Jon: "That means no, right?" (Tim stutters) Tim has nothing to say on the subject!"
    Tim: "I don't know — I can't believe there's a vegetable..."
  • Emile pointing out Jon's borderline psychopathic tendencies... and Jon doing nothing to dispel the image.
    Emile: "You blew his head off with a missile!"
    Jon: "He didn't need it."
  • The commentary on Sheik.
    Jon (probably): "She's my dream man!"
  • The entire ending on episode 12. The guys just seem so awed by the epic fail of the Duon fight, you can hear it in the way they're talking.
    Emile: "Dude, we need to give them at least some content."
    Jon: "That was content! Just not very good!"
    Tim: I... I-I-I... zoned out."
    Jon: "Stop the video now."

Episode 13

  • The Steve abuse continues on in Episode 13. "Someone grab his controller!"
  • More Captain Falcon moments from Jon:
    • Captain Falcon is BATMAN!
    • "Captain Falcon is parallel parking."
    • Jon praying that Meta Ridley gives him a chance to Falcon Punch him. Meta Ridley grabs the side of the Falcon Flyer and starts dragging it down while shooting fireballs. Jon, seeing his chance, yells "I LOVE YOU RIDLEY!" and makes his move... Only to get hit by a fireball and killed.
  • In episode 13, Jon and Tim are picking their characters for a stage, and Tim chooses Fox.
    Jon: "So I've got two of my favourite characters, and you've got...two...I you like Fox?"
    Tim: "Yeah, I love him! ...Well, not like that..."
  • Tim singing about Subspace to the tune of the Forest Maze music from Mario RPG. Then:
    Tim: *still in tune* "We will be here for a very long time..." *Beat* "I have nothing with that that would rhyme..."
    Emile: *also in tune* "What do you mean we did badly on time?"
    Tim and Jon: *laughter*
  • While Jon is carrying a bomb, an enemy appears behind him, and he on reflex throws it at the enemy. The enemy was a Metal Primid. Metal Primids reflect projectiles. See if you can guess what happened.
  • At the end of episode 13, Emile proclaims he is going outside again. Jon and Tim don't believe him, until he actually leaves again. They are dumbfounded until:
    Tim: "...Now hiring: Spot for The Runaway Guys!"
    Jon: "Send your resumés to-" *episode cuts off*
  • They joke about Diddy's banana throwing animation and talk about him being high class while using ridiculous voices.
  • Ganondorf getting married to Master Hand.

Episode 14

  • Luigi's Epic Fail in Episode 14:
    Jon: "Save your brother."
    Emile: *while doing so* "I don't wanna save my brother, then I might actually get to be the main characterr—" *falls to death*

Episode 15

  • Later in the episode, it becomes obvious that Tim is having a heck of a time with the game. Highlights include:
    Emile: "So we have to get to a save point or you have to get a game over if you want Jon back."
    Jon: "So what you're saying is, I'm gonna be here awhile."
    Emile: "Uh... well... he can die pretty quick."
    Jon: "I was trying to be nice."
    Emile: "I'm actually amazed! He didn't die on the way to the save — that sounded really..."
    • Tim on the elevators:
      Emile: "Go down. Go down." (Tim walks away) "Tim. Okay, fine."
      Jon: "Go in the ELEVATOR!" (Tim walks through a door). "TIM."
    • An unintentional Shout-Out to the NSMBW Let's Play:
      Tim: "Byyyye guuuuys!"
      Jon: "TIM!"
      Emile: "Ti—" (Bursts out laughing) "I'm loving this so much!"
    • The guys realize what the episode consists of:
      Jon: "Yea— aww damnit, Tim! I should stop yelling at Tim. I feel really bad."
      Emile: "That's like all this video's been. It's just like TIIIIIM!"
    • The elevators (and Tim) continue to foil Jon's plans.
      Jon: "Elevat-TOR. Tim, get in the elevator." (He does so.) "Go up." (He does so.) "Yes." (Tim sends the elevator down.) "That's down, Tim. I wish I could control the elevator! Boy, howdy!"
      Emile: "Go back to the elevator.) (Tim gets in the elevator with Jon... and goes up.) (Emile laughs) "Ti-i-im!"
    • But the best is, perhaps, the fact that the only thing Tim says in his defense is:
      Tim: "Yay!"
  • Jon as Captain Falcon hitting an enemy repeatedly with a fan.
    Jon: "Captain Falcon is your biggest fan. Captain Falcon is not above making bad jokes!"
  • You don't even need to look further than the intro for the first one of episode 15. First the guys decide that Tim is his own wife and then they start singing the Captain Planet theme. Sort of.
    Emile: "Gonna take pollution down to zero! Go to hell and... I don't know the rest of the words."
    Jon: "'Go to hell'? That is not in the Captain Planet theme! What is with you?"
  • There's also the episode's ending, which combines hopelessness and continued trolling.
    Emile: (Trying to wrap things up) "So, this has been..."
    Jon: "A train wreck. It has been a train wreck. GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY."
    Emile: "This has been a train wreck with the chuggatrain."
    Jon: "The truggachain?"
    Emile: "Chugga-chugga-chugga-chugga-trainwreck!" (Beat) "OH MY GOD. WE WEREN'T RECORDING ANY OF THAT?"
  • Jon walking right into Tim's hands:
    Jon: [In his 'Captain Falcon' voice] "Captain Falcon has returned! I'm sorry, I had to go use the washroom. It takes awhile to—"
    Tim: "In the washroom!"
  • In the process of fighting Kirby, Jon proves Freud right and Emile makes things worse.
    Jon: "Captain Falcon has tripped! Doing a seductive pose for you, Kirby!"
    Emile: "You threw paper at him and he died..."
    Jon: "Why is the taunt button so sticky!?" (Tim laughs) "What did you guys do to this controller!?"
    Emile: (Quietly) "In bed."
  • Emile's insane giggle.
  • Emile turning the tables on Jon:
    Jon: "Captain Falcon is back but not being controlled by Captain Falcon."
    Emile: "You are so dumb."
  • When Dark Yoshi appears: "SO UNHAPPY."
  • In the Skyworld part of the Great Maze, Tim is playing as Lucas and is struggling to make a jump. Eventually he hands the controller to Emile, who completes the jump successfully. Tim takes control again...and promptly falls off and has to do the jump again.
  • Episode 15 also features the group having a rematch with Duon. Emile and Tim manage to get it down to just a sliver of health on their first attempt, but it lives up to the trouble it gave them in their original fight with it by killing Tim (who was player 1 at the time) right as Emile was about to finish it off.
    • After reloading from the previous game-over, Emile somehow manages to land on top of Duon as if it were a platform. He spends the next few seconds simply standing there smacking it with a paper fan before it manages to shake him off.
  • Emile feels it necessary to scream "COME!" after defeating Cyber-Snake (Emile was playing as Meta Knight, who says "come" as one of his taunts).

Episode 16

  • The opening to episode 16.
    *Someone claps*
    Jon: "That was a weak clap."
    Tim: "Sometimes that happens. The palm just hits the wrong way."
    Emile: "Weak claps, a good omen for things to come."
    Jon: "Uhhhhhhm…"
    Emile: "OOOH! I didn't realize what I just-"
    Jon: "Go in the door, now!"
  • Episode 16 also sees the creation of Cyber Steve.
    Jon: "Come with me if you want to live. But you must get there by sunset."
    • In a meta example, Jon gets home the same day it was uploaded and already there were a ton of fan pics.
    • Emile points out the hostered weapons some characters never use, such as Ganondorf's sword and Captain Falcon and Snake's handguns.
    Jon: [in Captain Falcon voice] "Captain Falcon doesn't need a gun, and Snake has, like, thirty other weapons."
  • Jon's reaction to Cyber Captain Falcon is to speak in a robot voice as Captain Falcon.
    • "Show me your Robo-Moves!"
  • While battling Cyber Pikachu, Jon gets killed and then Cyber Pikachu taunts him.
    Jon: "YOU LITTLE RAT!"
    • Pretty much every instance of the Cyber Pikachu fight. Watching Emile and Jon being pwned by a little rat = Priceless.
  • While attempting to climb a jungle area full of mines, Tim fails horribly.
    *All the while, Emile is laughing in the background:*
    Jon: "Watch out-" *Tim hits a mine* "-for the mines. Watch out for those mines too!" *Tim hits another mine* "There we go."
    Tim: "Just gonna hit every single one on the way up..."
    Jon: "Okay, lemme shoot this one. Or use your lightning bolt. Up-B."
    Tim: "Oh yeah." *Jumps into the mines*
    Jon: "THAT'S NOT UP-B!"
  • The rotation comes back and bites the guys in the collective ass:
    Jon: "Lucas went right— why are you going left?"
    Emile: "T-Tim? Tim? Tim!"
    Jon: (to Emile) "It's you, you idiot! You're Peach!"
  • Episode 16 also features an impressive (and hilarious) number of Call Backs
    Jon: "We have to go up."
    Emile: "Uh... Tim does not do well with up."
    Jon: "I don't trust [Tim] with doors anymore, man!"
    • There's also this lengthy conversation on jackassery:
      Tim: "--and you're a jackass!"
      Emile: (Beat) "I am?"
      Jon: "Congratulations!"
      Emile: "Achievement unlocked! Jackassery!"
      Jon: "I don't think that's really an achievement."
      Emile: "Well for you it is."
      Jon: "That's normal for me."
      Emile: "It's normal for you to be a jacka— oh, I guess in these recordings that makes sense."
      Jon: "According to the internet, I am an asshole."
      Emile and Tim: (singing) "I am an asshole, I am an asshole! I am such an asshole!"
    • During the rematch with normal Ridley, after Jon questions how Slowbeef and Diabetus can keep up their Ridley voice, Emile attempts to imitate the voice himself.
      Emile: (trying to imitate Diabetus' Ridley voice) "OIHM RIDLEY!"
      Jon: "Wow! I... don't know what to classify that as."
      Tim moans as his character is knocked off screen''
      Jon: "Charizard killed itself in response."
    • Jon and Emile feel a certain catchphrase is getting a little stale:
      Jon: "We've already used Yoshi. Numerous times."
      Tim: "Yoshi! So happy!"
      (Emile and Jon groan)
      Emile: "We couldn't just... not say it?"

Episode 17

  • Episode 17 consisted of nothing but nods. It doesn't even take two minutes for it to start.
    • The start of the epidemic:
      Jon: (singsong) "Down, down, down. Down Tim, please. There's going to be gas."
      [Emile starts saying something suspiciously like 'In']
      Tim: "Ya know, in the bathroom!"
      Emile: [Laughs] "I knew that was coming! I felt it coming!"
    • A detour to Delfino:
      Jon: "I guess you just have to go higher up."
      Emile: (not paying attention to the game) "Higher! Higher! I'm a Chuckst—!" [He flies offscreen]
      Jon: "Speaking of Chucksters, you got chucked off the screen."
    • Emile and Tim cave:
      Jon: "Yeah, so basically to the left of where the gold box was."
      Jon: "No, because we could have just paused and looked at the map and—"
      Emile: (slowly) "To the le..."
      Tim: "To ze left."
      ' "I wasn't gonna say it though, Tim said it. Can't blame that on me. Tim said it, not me!"
    • More jokes at Tim's expense:
      Jon: "Good counter, whoever that was... Tim."
      Emile: "That was Tim. Considering his run with the ladders—"
      Jon: "You did know you were Marth this time, right?"
    • An Accidental Innuendo that goes to a familiar place:
      Jon: "Are you punching Tim?"
      Emile: "No! I wasn't punching him!"
      Tim: "His arm just happened to be moving in a certain, like, back and forth--"
      Emile: "Umm..."
      Jon: "That's it. Make it sound worse than it actually was."
      Emile: "Saying my arm is moving back and forth in a rhythm. Yeah."
      Tim: "Oh!"
      Jon: "Bow chicka bow wow!"
      Emile: "With Tim?"
      Tim: "His wife!"
      Emile: "Aaaaahhhhhh!"
      Jon: "YES! Yes!"
    • Emile's fascination with mushrooms backfires:
      Emile: "I want the mushroom! I wanna eat the mushroom! I wanna—"
      Jon: "You would want to eat the mushroom..."
      • For added hilarity, it was a poison mushroom that directly led to Olimar's death. He probably shouldn't have eaten that mushroom. note 
    • Emile makes the mistake of saying 'troop' in front of Jon:
      Jon: "I'm impressed, actually."
      Emile: "I went through an army of Floows and beat Cyber Peach. No deaths. I- I trooped through that." (Beat) "No. No no no!"
      Jon: "You trooped through this?"
      Emile: "No! No! No!"
      Jon: "To Olimar! So you're picking Olimar, right?"
      Emile: "Screw. You. So. Hard. [Picks Olimar]"
      Jon: (mumbling) "And he did it anyway..."
    • After they pick Wario as their wild card:
      Emile: "I love the German fat man."
      Emile: "NO! I didn't mean it like that!"
      • After a few remarks from Jon and one remark from Tim, Emile finally counters with, "Hey! At least I didn't call one of the other Runaway Guys 'gorgeous' publicly." Cue Tim groaning loudly.
    • Jon seizes an opportunity:
      Jon: "Usually your stuff is non-sequitur to me."
      [Emile drives Wario offscreen and dies]
      Jon: "Well then. I think you missed."
    • More mushroom humor:
      Jon: "Remember, don't stab the chickens."
      Emile: [Lightly] "As long as you don't eat the mushroom."
  • The Indiana Jones singalong. Followed shortly by:
    Jon: (along with the theme music) "Jump out right now, or you'll die—" [Tim fails to take this advice, killing Fox off and nearly killing Marth. Emile laughs maniacally] [Still in tune] "And we did die because we missed the stupid jump. Let's go in the door~"
    • The best part may be that you can hear Tim singing "On the toilet seat!" just before the incident.
  • Speaking of 'Tim, his wife'...
    Jon: "There goes Nana."
    Emile: "I lost my wife! I'm gonna have to marry a new woman at the end of this area."
    Tim: "That's why I'm here."
    (Later, as Emile (solo) enters a door)
    Jon: "Well, you get Nana back, right?"
    Emile: "No! I wasn't able to find a woman within ten seconds!"
    [Peach hits him into the air]
    Jon: "You found a woman but she's kicking your ass."
  • Jon taking reverse psychology to its logical extreme.
    Jon: (as they're switching off) "It is me and you, but since there's only one character... hold onto this controller and do nothing with it."
    Emile: "Don't shove it up your ass."
    Jon: "Yes, that is exactly what I was going to do. How dare you take that option away from me."
    [Emile laughs and Tim groans]
  • Emile lampshading the (copious) Ho Yay.
    Emile: "Hey, at least I didn't call one of the other Runaway Guys 'gorgeous' publicly."
    Jon: "Dun da-dun dun."
    Tim: (groans) "Touche."
    Jon: "He actually saw that."
    Emile: "E-yup."
  • Jon and Emile continue their crusade against the Great Maze.
    Jon: (As Tim and Emile are repeatedly getting frozen) "Really? I'm, like, getting deja vu."
    Emile: "That's the idea of the Great Maze. You get to relive all the great memories you had of this annoying enemy configuration the first time."
    Jon: "Remember that time you got stuck and died constantly? Well here you go again."
  • Then, there's this little gem...
    Emile: "Tim is Zelda."
    Tim: "I wish."
  • Emile comments on the Scenery Porn of the game by singing Circle of Life...really badly. Jon says that The Lion King is ruined for him.

Episode 18 (Story Finale)

  • The guys's brains are broken when Tim enters as Yoshi and instantly has 184 damage, without coming in contact with anything that can deal damage.
    • "184 is the real meaning of life."
  • Jon and Tim both die...about 30 seconds after exiting a save point room.
  • Jon, as Lucas, manages to use a Smart Bomb to kill Rayquaza. Emile is visibly irritated by the fact that Jon was able to use a Smart Bomb correctly as Emile's best character.
    Emile: "So — so you did the smart bomb right with my best character..."
    Jon: "Hahaha, the irony!"
    Emile: "Now I really have to prove myself." (Beat) "Well, I kinda did."
    Jon: "Yeah, 'cause you hit nothing."
    Emile: "I hit Tim..."
    • On a related note, there's Emile's last chance at using a smart bomb.
    Emile: [Notices and picks up a smart bomb] "Oh baby!"
    Jon: "What'd you get? Oh! This is your chance! Show us your moves!"
    [Emile throws the bomb, misses Tabuu, and immediately gets killed]
  • During the battle with Cyber Ike, Ike seems to fall off the stage and kill himself, only to Aether up to safety just in time. Meanwhile, on the other side of the stage, Yoshi (Tim) kills himself instead.
  • "I'm playing with my snake."
  • Anytime Emile rolls into the spikes.
  • Garth Brooks and Martha Stewart.
  • Jon is playing as Lucas and Tim as Captain Falcon:
    Jon: "I feel weird not being Captain Falcon right now, not gonna lie..."
    Emile: "You're not doing the voice enough."
    (Captain Falcon dies)
    Jon: "Falcon agrees with me! He's like, 'He's right. I should probably just kill myself.'"
  • The final battle: Tabuu hits Emile with an instant kill right as Jon (as Yoshi), lands the final blow, freezing Emile in a death animation but leaving him alive and floating in place.
  • Jon's reaction to forgetting Ike for the final battle, especially when he's not in the still in the end credits where it shows everyone standing side by side. He begins acting like Ike is dead and spends the rest of the episode talking about him.
    Jon: "Lo-look, Ike is not in that cutscene."
    Emile: "Cause we never saved..." *Cracks up*
    Jon: "Ike is dead! You guys are dicks!"
    Emile: "He will never fight for his friends again."
    Jon: "Ike, I'm so sorry!"
    Tim: "We were awesome!"
    Jon: "But we killed Ike!"
  • When Emile finishes playing a game in which a sympathetic character lost their life over the course of the game, he will somberly remind us. He did so for the robots of the floating island. Cue Jon saying, in his usual exasperated tone, "Well that's depressing!"
  • During the final cutscene, Tim gets distracted and delivers this superb Non Sequitur:
    Tim: (out of nowhere) "Haha! I didn't think I got that rupee! Hahahaha!"
  • After the credits, as Tim hmms and haws over whether or not they're going to show the extra characters, Emile demonstrates his short attention-span and ability to take things the wrong way:
    Emile: "You said 'we', 'screw' and 'together' so many times in that sentence."
    Tim: "Wow."
  • The return of the monkey hug — with extra dinosaur for good measure.
    Tim: (Reading the translation of Brawl's main theme) "'Now that person stands at my side'. If only we had a camera!"
    Jon: "As they hug each other."
    Emile: "Group Hug!"
    Jon: "Nooo! Arrrgh, not again!"
  • And, of course, there's the fact that the thing that saved the guys in the very end — the only reason they didn't get screwed over by Tabuu — was Yoshi. So happy!
    Jon: "Yoshi was the winner after all..."

Bonus Episode

  • The first time Tim has to fight Jigglypuff. Well, it ended badly. As in Tim died four seconds after the match started.
    • Jon's response is to throw his controller down and leave the house before coming back in a few seconds later to tell Tim he hates him.
      Emile: (right after Jon leaves) "I guess he really did go be Canadian somewhere else."
    • Jon was so emotionally drained by the end of it he started speaking in monotone.
    • The moments right before the first time Tim fought Jigglypuff were even funnier.
    • They die ten times when trying to get back to the door leading to Jigglypuff.
      • Not to mention the gong show (as Jon put it), where they kept getting launched further and further away from the door they needed to go to in order to reach Jigglypuff. All this before the four-second match.note 
      • Solely because of being Tim's partner in the Bonus Episode, Jon's most common death cause was Mega Diddy.
      • Tim died playing as the Ice Climbers... because Nana got on a ledge and Popo didn't. Another time, Tim spawns as the Ice Climbers, and kills himself by walking off stage.
  • Some moments before the second time Tim fought Jigglypuff were hilarious as well.
    • Tim and Jon are readying themselves for the Dark Diddy fight and Emile said "Get ready". They enter and Dark Diddy kills them instantly. Jon's reaction?
      Jon: "Get ready, my ass!"
  • According to the final totals, the wins were spread around somewhat evenly between Emile and Jon, with Tim only winning "least healed". As for the losses, Tim "won" every single one of them. Except for "most healed", which went to Emile.
  • After one of the first of many losses in the bonus episode, while scrolling through the received stickers:
    Emile: "Ike!"
    Jon: "Don't rub it in..."
    Emile: "I'll rub whatever I- NEVER MIND."
  • Captain Falcon is a pirate.
  • Jon winning against Toon Link. Both are blown off the screen. Jon won because Toon Link flew off a second before him. Doubles as a Moment of Awesome.
  • The guys notice that Wolf is giving the players (and viewers, in this case) the finger.
  • Emile grabs a hammer right infront of a breakable wall, as the screen is scrolling. The hammer breaks, and Emile is forced to swing a stick at the wall. Tim had to come to his rescue.
    Emile: "I'M WAVING A STICK HERE!!!"
  • After Tim finally beats Jigglypuff, Emile says he was half-hoping Tim would lose again so he could watch him and Jon fail have a hard time getting back there. Tim proceeds to give this surprisingly snarky comment:
    Tim: (to Jon) "You're gonna go back to hating him now, right?" note 


  • Anytime Emile yells "[X]'s got a gun!"
    "Monkey's got a trophy!"
    "Monkey's got a gun and he refuses to take his medication!"
    "The monkey doesn't have a gun anymore. But he still refuses to take his medication!"
  • Any time Emile blows up a Smart Bomb. Any time.
  • A couple of times, one of the guys will be Player 1 and fall off a ledge, only to realize that Player 1 can't teleport (or "bubble") like Player 2 can.
  • Any time Jon gets a hammer.
  • The guys's reactions to the weird stage layouts for the Cyber battles.
  • Whenever Emile sees a Poppant enemy, he exclaims, "He's havin' a party in his pants!"



    Kirby's Return to Dream Land 
  • General/Running Gags:
    • The high-pitched voice Emile does when reading Magolor's dialogue, and how much it irritates Jon.
  • Episode 1:
    • During the intro to the game, King Dedede runs into Kirby and causes him to drop a large piece of cake:
      Emile: "Hey! You destroyed my cake, Tim! Did you play Kirby: Squeak Squad? I murder hundreds of people over pieces of cake!"
    • Jon grousing during the intro that he never drew the similarity between Return to Dreamland's opening and the first Pikmin game after Emile points it out.
    • Jon and Emile decide that the first Waddle Dee they see is Josh (who is not playing with them). Then when Emile as Kirby eats it, he's also eating grandpas, and that eating grandpas and getting high off of the cholesterol in them is the cool thing for kids to do now.
    • The Guys talk about Meta Knight's dub voice in the anime and how it was so over-the-top (Eric Stuart was supposed to portray him as a Dashing Hispanic) that it made Meta Knight sound like he was a Mexican Vampire.
    • Emile's topical Take That! to Alicia Silverstone and how she fed her child like a bird.
    • Emile accidentally kills Jon in 1-2, before Jon could even think of a way to kill Emile, much to Jon's dismay.
    • When Emile delivers a Take That! to a design choice done with Eterna City, Jon asks what he's talking about, and when he finds out, is annoyed with himself for thinking Emile wouldn't be making an obscure Pokémon reference.
    • Emile sets off a chain of puns.
    • "Monster Flame! Say hello to my cousin: Yamata! No! OROCHI!"
    • Jon's reaction to Meta Knight and Dedede moon-walking during the post-boss battle Kirby Dance.
  • Episode 2:
    • The unintentional Rescue Romance moment at the start of 2-1: Emile's Kirby gets eaten alive, saved by Jon's Meta Knight, and they kiss.
    • "Normally we would need a hammer... but... we have Tim."
      • In the same vein, there's the solution that Emile comes up with after he and Jon have been bickering. Again.
      Emile: "I like how I just made a reference to using Tim as a shield if you tried to murder me, and nobody said anything."
      Tim: "I must’ve misheard."
      Jon: "Well, now that you pointed it out..."
      Emile: "That’s why I pointed it out, because I’m like 'What? You guys—'"
Tim: "You pointed it out? How dare you!"
  • Jon's reaction to Emile saying "subgame" in a very deep voice.
  • The guys start comparing Kirby's powers to, of all things, Captain Planet. And when asked which power represents the element of Heart?
    Emile: "Heart would be our friendship!"
    • He also decides, randomly, that Jon should be Wheeler from the show. This is possibly referring to Jon's last name being Wheeler.
  • When Emile uses Stone Kirby and turns into a statue of a muscular man, he exclaims "Look at me! That's how I look in real life, I swear."
  • There's also Jon trying to figure out whether there's stuff underwater or not.
    Jon: "Isn't there stuff down here? Guys, guys? There's a pineapple."
    Emile: "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"
    Jon: "Oh no... oh, it totally is..."
  • The guys have some trouble with doors. They keep going back and forth between a room with a gear in it and one small, enclosed area, with each one of them accidentally going through the door at least once.
    • Actually, despite what Emile said, it was only him and Tim.
  • Tim saying that them sharing food is kinky, making Emile yell, "Thanks for that!"
  • When they're fighting King Doo.
    Emile: "King Doodoo!"
    Tim: "In the bathroom!"
  • Jon saying how he sometimes hates driving people.
    Jon: "You guys haven't been in a car ride with me before so... I-I don't think I could handle that."
    Emile: "You can't handle being apart from us for twelve hours, that's the sweetest thing you ever said in all... life."
  • The ending has Jon and Tim deciding to attack Emile in-game. Emile promptly runs away and enters the second level of world two to escape.
  • Episode 3:
    • The episode starts with Jon joking that the characters are at Meta Knight's pool party, and that all the coolest kids from his school are there, and Kirby.
    • The Captain Planet discussion continues when Jon expresses shock that Water Kirby took so long to become an actual power for Kirby. Emile recites the Captain Planet intro again, but substitutes something... less-than-wholesome for the power of "Heart".
    • Jon saying that Tim's beatboxing sounded more like "sucking like a tetrabat", causing Emile to give a Flat "What".
    • Emile decides to take the High-Jump power, then decides to get another one.
      Emile: "You know, I'll go with High-Jump. I'll go with kind of an off-beat- actually no, I want Whip."
      Jon: "Make up your mind."
      Emile: "Okay, I'll go with Whip."
      Jon: "'Kay."
      Emile: "Actually I want Water, no I'm kidding!"
      Jon: "You son of a- KIRBY!" *tries slashing him with Meta Knight's sword*
    • Emile's two very similar moments of Buffy Speak: "I'm an Olympic...person" and "I'm the American...person".
    • Emile accidentally eats Tim.
      Jon: "You're in his mouth."
      Tim: "Oh."
      Jon: "That's not a good place to be. I’m sorry."
      Emile: "Well, using you as projectiles is a strategy so..." *eats Jon*
      Jon: "Hey, hey, hey!"
    • Emile regurgitates Tim.
      Emile: "Look at Tim, he's having the time of his life."
      Jon: "Yeah. No, being regurgitated is a great feeling."
      Emile: "How would you know how it feels?"
      Jon: "We don't talk about that."
      Emile: "Um... okay. I think you’re the one who did the foot in mouth moment this time."
      Tim: "Wow, at least it wasn't my foot in his mouth."
Emile: "UGH!"
  • The entire American Dream conversation. Points for Tim's muttering in the background and the others' reaction to it.
  • The episode ends with them playing Ninja Dojo. The whole thing is hilarious, from Jon's invocation of the Let's Players' curse to their reactions to the trickier targets.
    • During the bulls-eye minigame, one of them has the dartboard with a lot of fake dartboards, causing Jon to wonder what was going on.
    • Also, the very last target. "It's Pac-Man!"
  • Episode 4:
    • Jon finally figures out how to troll Emile without killing him; beat him to all the spheres. This does eventually get through to Emile when Jon starts to steal spheres Emile put work into getting to.
    • After the defeat of a Sphere Doomer and Jon taking the spoils of their victory:
      Emile: "You suck!"
      Jon: "I'm sorry I know where to stand."
      Emile: "I keep trying too, but I'm always fighting at the very end."
      Jon: "I killed it!"
      Emile: "Well, that's not the point."
      Jon: "It kind of is!"
    • The "Happy birthday!" Running Gag (as it's Emile's birthday and Jon keeps claiming banal things are his birthday gift, like there being fireworks in the game).
    • When Jon tells Emile that he's starting to sound like a martyr by saying "I paid for the hotel room" a lot, he gives his Emile impersonation a funny voice.
    • After defeating the boss, when Jon takes the ship part, Emile cuts it out of the video and replaces it with a text box saying "Nothing suspicious here!" so the viewers don't see Jon taking it (even though the audio is left in, allowing us to easily tell Jon took it based on the back-and-forth between him and Emile).
  • Episode 5:
    • They joke that the Robot Waddle Dee is actually Josh in a giant robot, "Robo-Jepson", here to get revenge for not being in the LP.
    • The guys joke that Tim will be mentally tormented by destroying the Robot Dedede because he plays as Dedede.
      • "Why are you shooting yourself, Tim? Stop shooting yourself!"
  • Episode 6:
    • The opening, which has Jon being sprayed by Emile's (as Water Kirby) geyser move.
      Jon: "Oh, hi, guys. Sorry, I didn't see you come in. I was just taking a shower."
    • The episode also starts with them restarting the level to try and get the first gear, a task made more difficult because Emile!Kirby must get into the cannon (due to the camera following him). When they revisit the level to get another missed gear, he hits it purely by accident.
    • The Epic Fail of each of them falling into a pit while trying to carry a candle.
    • Their reaction to Goriath's second form.
    • After the Guys defeat Goriath, Tim and Emile scramble towards the center of the arena, anticipating the ship part to appear, while Jon just stands on the ground and watches. Then the arena floor collapses, dumping Jon right on the ship part while Emile screams NOOOOOOOOO!!!
      Jon: "Joke's on you, guys."
  • Episode 7:
    • There's the word association game. It goes well until Tim starts getting distracted.
      Tim: "Nintendo!"
      Jon: "Capri."
      Tim: [Noticing the Parasol powerup] "Umbrella..."
      Jon: "Nintendo Capri Umbrella?"
    • Emile and Jon debate who started the whole Cycle of Revenge killing until Emile gets hit, forcing them to start that section of the stage over. Jon promptly attacks an enemy and sends Meta Knight barrel rolling right off the screen to his death.
    • The group starts talking about King of the Hill of all things and start talking like Boomhauer.
    • At the beginning of the episode, Emile gives Tim and Jon new variants of the appropriate plush toys (a white Yoshi and actual (sort of) Poison Mushroom, respectively), and it crops back up near the end of the episode.
      Emile: "Should also mention that Jon threw... well, he didn't throw it away, but [he threw] his poison mushroom across the room at the beginning of the video."
      Jon: "Well, I wasn’t gonna keep it in my hands while we're playing a game."
      Emile: "Why not?"
      Tim: [In the background] "He might be tempted to eat it."
  • Episode 8:
    • The intro is quite comical.
      Jon: (As Meta Knight) "Dear diary, today I returned to Return to Dreamland. For some reason, these two suckers keep following me, and I don't know why."
    • Eighteen seconds into the episode, we get this:
      Emile: "My instinct is to eat everything I see!"
      Tim: "My instinct is to fall from the highest height!"
      Jon: "My instinct is to yell. A lot."
      • Which is immediately followed by Emile calling himself and Jon immature.
        Jon: "Us, immature? What?"
        Tim: "I can be immature, too!"
    • All of the pit-related trouble.
      Jon: "Watch out for the giant hole, dude."
      Tim: [Falls in] "WHOA!"
      Jon: "That's why I warned you."
      • The best is, without a doubt, this exchange, after Emile falls down a hole and forces everyone to restart.
        Jon: "Did you just fall in the — what exactly happened?"
        Emile: "I fell in the pit."
        Tim: [In the background] "You didn't just knock me in the pit."
    • The reaction when Emile brings up Meta Knight's mask, and starts asking how he can share food.
      Jon: "I have food lasers. Food eye lasers."
      Emile: "Meat vision!"
      Jon: "Meat vision? That just sounds really bad, I'm not gonna lie..."
    • The tag along to the Boss Rush.
    • Near the end, Emile talks for Kirby to all of the cast while Jon is coughing in the background.
      Jon (Strained): "I'm Alright. Don't-Don't ask or anything."
  • Episode 9:
    • Jon getting another "Bye guys!" in.
    • Jon yelling "MIKE!" after Kirby loses the Mike ability.
    • "Oh no. Cannons. Great." It ends about as well as you'd expect.
    • In the process of getting a single 1-Up, Emile falls in a pit. The team respawns in the same room — sans Kirby's power — Jon collects the same 1-up... and then Tim falls in the same pit Emile did.
    • Jon having Meta Knight ride on top of Kirby's head in the Phantom Zone.
    • Pretty much the entire second half of the episode.
      • Jon's reaction to Emile snagging a gear after multiple repeats of a stage:
      • The Inspector Gadget singalong and the conversation that precedes it (Jon telling Emile not to sing any 90s theme songs ever again).
        Jon: "This is how our sanity has gone at this point. Two episodes in, and we're already singing Inspector Gadget."
      • Emile caps off the ordeal by bringing back this gem from Brawl:
        Emile: (fake surprise) "We weren't recording any of that?!"
        Jon: "You don't even get to joke about that!"
  • Episode 10:
    • The opening, where Emile trolls Jon and Tim.
      Emile: "Hey, Jon?"
      Jon: "What."
      Emile: "We're doing this level again!" *Runs into Stage 2 again*
      Tim: *Starts stammering*
      Jon: "Tim. Tim, open the window for me. He-he's right next to it. I'm just going to kick him out."
      Tim: "OK."
      Jon: "We are not doing this stage again!"
    • The "Mix" shenanigans near the beginning of the episode. Emile dumps the Spear power in order to get a "Mix" power by inhaling three things at once (in this case, a Poppy Bros.' bombs). After getting "Fire" the first time, he dumps it to try again... only for Tim to kill the Poppy Bros., yet Emile still manages to get another mix! Resulting in... Spear.
      Tim: "This game's quite spear-itual."
      Jon: "Was that necessary, Tim?"
      Tim: "Nope!"
      Jon: "At least you're honest about it."
    • Jon repeatedly denying Emile food by bouncing on his head. Emile protests ineffectually:
      Emile: "You realize I have Main Character Syndrome. If I die, we all die!"
      Jon: "You realize I have I Don't Give A Damn Syndrome, right? My "Give A Damn" is busted!"
    • Jon refuses to unlock a door.
    • Emile says that he and Jon are gonna fight for gears the whole time, meaning they'll pop up next to Tim. Then a gear literally spawned on top of Tim, and he got it.
    • Tim taking a bath in Kirby's mouth.
      Jon: "Tim, where are you? Are you in his mouth?"
      Tim: "Yeah."
      Emile: "He's just riding."
      Tim: "I'm taking a bath."
      Emile: "In my mouth?"
      Jon: "I don't think that's a good place to take a bath, not going to lie."
    • Emile eating Jon and spitting him out under a block that was about to crush him.
    • Emile's twist on "In the bathroom".
  • Episode 11:
    • At the beginning, Jon shows the others that the first letters of the game's levels spell crowned. Emile's reaction is hilarious.
      Emile: "Dude. My mind has been blown, hit by a truck, and then thrown in an industrial grinder, and then sat on by Wario's ass."
      Jon: "You know what the worst part is? He's not even being sarcastic. He's actually this surprised."
    • There's one gear that's giving the guys trouble. It involves pressing the right switches and pressing one at the right time. On their fifth try, Jon trips the wrong switch and...
      Jon: "Oh, dammit, that was my fault!"
      Emile: [Not paying attention] "Tim..."
      Jon: "That was my fault."
      Emile: "Oh. Okay. Jon..."
      [Tim laughs]
      Jon: "I like how you immediately blame Tim, too."
      Emile: "Jepson!"
    • At one point, Emile turns into Snow Bowl Kirby and gets Meta Knight trapped in it while moving very slowly. While doing so, Meta Knight flails wildly and Jon begins shouting "wah! aah!" as if he was actually Meta Knight.
    • The episode is full of bizarre noises from Emile — all of them hilarious. For instance...
    • This. More specifically, the reaction that it gets.
      Jon: "Haha! Oh my god! That is amazing! Tim! Good job!"
  • Episode 12:
    • At the beginning of the episode, Jon becomes disappointed when Emile manages to just barely avoid dying with Tim when they both start falling into a pit. Immediately after this Jon accidentally hits a pillar of lava and falls to his death.
      Jon: "Aw, c'mon!"
      Emile: "You deserved it for that comment! You had it coming!"
    • Discussing Tim as if he was the focus of a nature documentary.
      Emile: "Here we see a native Tim in his natural environment!"
    • The whole "Yep" conversation.
    • When Jon wonders if they got the fish version of Ultra Sword's attacks, Emile immediately pulls it out to cut a volcano in two.
    • The "Demon Elmo" voice used when Magolor transforms.
      Emile: [in a really aggressive Elmo voice] "OBTAINING THIS CROWN WAS MY ULTIMATE GOAL ALL ALONG!!!"
      Tim and Jon: [explode into laughter before Emile even finishes]
      • Speaking of voices, there's one particular voice that seemed to have stuck with Emile:
        Emile: [In the Elmo voice] "What did I ever do to you?" [Normally] "Oh, now I'm Elmo!"
        Jon: "You're always Elmo."
        Jon and Emile: "Plot twist."
    • At the end of the final cutscene, as Dedede pulls his head out of the ground, Emile whispers an oh-so-mysterious something to Tim. Jon's reaction makes it hilarious, but Tim's makes it absolutely adorable.
      Tim: "D'oh, I missed!"
      Jon: [To Emile] "Rea-- Really? You told him to say "D'oh, I missed"."
      [Tim and Emile start laughing]
      Tim: "Yeah. So happy!"
    • Dedede has a flower on his hat after the final battle, so they assume that the final level was Hawaii, and the Final Boss is the King of Hawaii.
    • At the end, Emile starts questioning how rainbows can have twists in them, and Jon calls him out on his Arbitrary Skepticism, given that they've just played a game "about flying around on dragons while in Another Dimension and fighting the King of Hawaii".
    • And — last but not least, in the end of the main story — we get the signoff.
      Emile: "So, this has been..."
      Tim: "NintendoCapriSun!"
      Jon: "Scope-Shot-Ninja-Dojo-Arena!"
      Emile: "And Nintendo of America Product Testing Division!"
      [Tim starts laughing]
      Jon: "I feel like I got shafted in the bad names department."
      Tim: "How did I end up here, man?"
  • Bonus Episode 1:
    • Emile hugs Tim. It's also one of the biggest Heartwarming Moments in the series.
      Jon: "Good luck, Timothy! [...] Why are you hugging him?"
      Emile: " was for good luck."
      Emile: "Hope you didn't mind me messing with you — you'd already won, so..."
      Jon: "Yeah, but you sounded like a dick doing it and I sounded like a dick responding to it. So..."
      Emile: "I'm sorry."
      Tim: "Aww!"
      Jon: "Okay. Apology accepted." [Beat] "Why are you hugging Tim? I'm like 'Apology accepted!' and he hugs Tim!"
    • When Jon starts the Water Challenge:
      Jon: "Alright, I'm gonna start with wah-tah."
      Emile: "Wah-tah."
      Jon: "Wah-tah!"
      Emile: "Wah-taaaah!"
      Jon: "...Please don't ruin Fist of the North Star for me."
    • They decide to call the final-boss version of Emile's Magolor voice "Sinister Elmo".
    • During Jon's final run of the Item challenge room, Emile starts using weaponised Tempting Fate, just as Jon did to him in Mario Party 2. When they get to the last door, Emile says "Okay, last room." Kirby immediately jumps into the fire blocks and lands at the finish, ruining what would have been a Platinum rank for Jon.
  • Bonus Episode 2:

  • Everything in the intro, no exception.
    • Their costumes deserve a mention. Emile is playing as "Mustached Shark", Tim is "Victorian Lady Gaga", Jon is our "Mexican Penguin", and Reese? "Patchwork MAH BALLS!"
    • "Everybody dance! Everybody dance!"
    • "Who's 'and'?"
  • When they screw around with their costumes. At one point, all of them are covered in horse tails and feathers. There's another time when all of them are wearing hipster glasses, with Emile's on the back of his head.
  • For whatever reason, they're really freaking loud in this Let's Play, randomly screaming whenever they get the chance. This is not a bad thing.
  • Jon trying to put stickers on everything.
  • The Death stats at the end of the first episode. Everyone else who touched water are listed as "drowned." Not Jon, who gets Death Water!.
  • Emile's terrible Stephen Fry impression, which sounds more like a cross between Bane and Scooby-Doo.
  • In the beginning of episode 2, Jon is putting tentacles on everyone. Reese stops him with this:
  • After Jon's Mexican Penguin wins the skateboard race in episode 2:
    Reese: "The Mexicans know how to run for the border!"
    Jon: "Welcome to the insensitive episode of The Runaway Guys."
  • Right after that, Emile mentions how there haven't been any jokes about a girl being in The Runaway Guys. To which Reese responds:
    Reese: "Oh, come on. I'm more masculine than some people in here."
    Emile: "What do you mean by that?!"
  • Jon's Mexican Penguin hanging onto Emile's shark as they swing from rope to rope.
  • In Episode 2, Reese, Emile, and Jon discuss who should step on 2 switches.
    Emile: "Ok, so, stand on this."
    (Emile and Jon stand on the platform)
    Reese: "But then you get the points."
    Jon: "Yeah, that's the trick, so you do this."
    (Nonchalantly whacks Emile off the raised platform)
    Emile: "HEY!"
    Reese: "Hahahaha! I approve!"
  • It easy to miss, but Reese makes a few really bad puns... (such as how Emile "Jumped the Shark", being a shark who's making jumps...) To which Tim replies:
    Tim: "Welp, you truly belong here."
  • In episode 3, Emile fails repeatedly to get an item that requires a difficult jump, then he and Jon argue about how to get it, while in a Meaningful Background Event Tim jumps up and gets it.
  • The Running Gag of Jon claiming penguins are experienced with fire.
  • Emile claims Reese's nationality is "Ballinese".
  • "Sharks are people too, you know!"
  • In episode 3, Reese tells Jon to "get back over the border" when he is the only one left scoring points. Jon then asks "Which one, Canada or Mexico?"
  • Jon yelling "I AM THE PENGUIN KING!"
  • Tim lets a really loud one rip. What sells it is how it derails the commentary for the next thirty seconds.
    Emile (after selecting level): "Oh god... Tim...."
    Jon: "My headache means I can't smell that. I'm so happy right now."
    Reese: "Well, aren't you fortunate?"
    Jon: "I totally am."
    Emile: "You sure are."
    Tim: "Jeez, that's the first time in a while."
    Jon: "First time in a while you farted? 'I have not farted in ages!'"
    Reese: "I do not believe this statement. At all."
  • Jon manages to keep playing a minigame and gather more score bubbles after the other three have died, he's found a technique for dodging the hazards...
  • Jon winning a race and singing a theme song for the Mexican Penguin... to the theme of Star Wars.
    Jon: "Mexico. Mexico number one. Mexico. Mexico Penguin!"
  • At the start of Episode 4, Jon has stuck two gloves on springs on his avatar's head and another on Reese's like a unicorn horn (the "Slap-a-corn", as Reese describes it). He tries to take the latter one off, but Emile starts the level halfway through him doing it, and it ends up looking like it's coming out of Tim's crotch.
  • Emile and Jon argue when attempting to bounce on a platform for collectibles—they both agree that it will only work if one person does it alone, but then insist they should be the one person. Jon solves the problem by slapping Emile into the spikes below.
  • "I'm riding my dog..." (a Call-Back to Reese's own LPs)
  • Jon sticks glasses on a background skeletal character without anyone else noticing, leading to Emile dubbing him "The Dead Hipster".
  • Jon sticks a bunch of dog noses onto both Tim and Emile. Their horrified reaction when one of Emile's dog noses starts blinking is hilarious.
  • Jon sticking a ton of bowties onto Emile.
  • In episode 5, the game trolls them.
    Jon: "Are you in?"
    Emile: "I am in. THERE'S MORE!"
    Jon: (laughs)
    Emile: "The game is trolling us!"
    Jon: "Oh, that's funny. That's actually pretty frigging funny."
    • What makes this even funnier is that they brought this hardship on themselves. There was a lower passage filled with poison gas (Jon even pointed it out) that they could've have dropped the bombs through instead of lifting them around the long, difficult way, yet none of them realize it.
  • At one point, the guys have to keep themselves from falling off a bucking cow. After Tim accidentally kills himself, Jon, as usual, immediately smacks Reese and Emile off to ride it alone.
  • "You were uncomfortably close to her tongue!"
  • The opening to episode 6, where all four just stand there silently... until Jon spawns a giant pair of glasses onto his face.
    Jon: "Deal with it."
    Everyone: *Cracks up*
    Jon: "I can't see! This is the worst idea I've had!"
  • Episode 6, Roller Run - Hard: Close to the beginning, they find a gate, and Jon asks, "How did we get another gate that fast?" 15 seconds later, they've used all their lives and fail out of the level.
    • When they finally beat it, Emile wins completely by accident by grabbing onto Tim's legs and hitting the goal first when he jumps for it.
  • Jon tries to explain a game mechanic during a tense race in front of flaming rollers, only for Emile to talk over him...
    Jon: "Chill, dude, I was just explaining."
    Emile: "Well explain faster!"
    Jon: "Oh don't you even..."
  • Jon's Insane Troll Logic explanations for the bizarrely unrelated picture icons on the Roller Run level.
  • In The Mines, the Guys platform over a spike pit. Emile, being in the lead, accidentally lands on a switch that triggers an explosion, killing Jon and sending Tim and Reese flying in different directions.
  • In episode 7, Tim quotes Egoraptor's "RIDIN' ON CARS!" Memetic Mutation, and then somehow pronounces the sound of Bill & Ted Air Guitar.
  • They all make a grab for a swing, and end up with Tim hanging onto it and the other three under him holding onto each others' legs.
  • Emile claims he's a clownfish named Marlena.
    • To explain, Emile reads dialogue from a girl at the end of episode 7. This prompts Jon to say "Emile is whatever sex he wants to be." and eventually leads to the above line.
  • After Emile makes some nonsensical comments:
    Emile: "This is how my mind works! I had a Pokémon upbringing!"
    Jon: "...So Pokémon ruined your brain, is what you're saying."
    Emile: "Remember, if you have friendship you'll always be a winner!"
    Jon: "...I see you're coming out of the pony closet."
  • The opening to Episode 8.
    Reese: (Singing) "If you like it, you should've put a ring on it!"
    Jon: (Puts a ton of rings onto Reese) "I REALLY LIKE IT!!!"
  • Emile learns that in Britain, the part of a car called a trunk in America is called a boot. He finds this awesome and spends the next few minutes doing exaggerated Fake Brit impressions where he uses the word.
  • In episode 9, everyone's constant bad attempts at Japanese Ranguage, accents as the level is based on Japan. Followed by Jon singing songs from The Lion King and Emile saying 'Apparently Japan is in Africa now'.
    • Upon being left alone a second time, Jon sings another Lion King song...with some extra lyrics.
      Jon: "It's a circle of life. It's a wheel of fortune." (Leaps to his death) "It's a leap of faith. Not a good one, though."
    • Other moments include is Tim and Reese singing "Part of your World" and the Runaway Guys trying to sing "Somebody's watching me" at the beginning.
  • Jon tries to take off a badge he put on Reese's (avatar's) face, only to accidentally 'rip part of her face off' instead.
  • Throughout ALL of Episode 10, the Runaway Guys... speaking in British accents... all the way to the end. It has to be seen to be believed!
    • And then at the very end, after they say goodbye...
    Jon: (loudly, no longer accented) "THANK GOD!"
    (everyone laughs)
  • In episode 11, they go back to normal, but Emile decides to just go back to making funny voices immediately, much to Jon's chagrin.
    Emile: (reading a character's dialogue in a bad Indian accent) "Beyond this perilous temple you will find the Great Magician, master of emitters."
    Jon: (while Emile reads) "Really? No. No! "
  • Reese starts to yell "LEEROY JENKINS!" as they set off in a race, only for them all to instantly fall flat on their faces.
  • After they win a collectible that turns out to be a mini-Sackboy your avatar holds, Jon jokes that it's his child and Emile wonders if there's a specific crime for beating someone to death with a baby.
  • Reese starts calling her horse avatar "Secretariat" and "Seabiscuit", leading to this bit of Shaped Like Itself:
    Emile: "Why is he called 'Seabiscuit' anyway?"
    Jon: "Because it's his name!"
  • After Jon uses Lucahjin's real name Risa (abbreviated to 'Reese') and they mention respawning at a gate, Emile puns that Reese's future children should be known as 'Reese-spawn'.
  • The Running Gag that Emile keeps mistakenly saying every level is set in Russia rather than the region where it actually is, then at the end of the episode, they finally get a level that actually is set in Russia.
  • Emile tries to joke about how in a video made in 2008, Jon apologised for two-week video delays, when Jon nowadays rarely puts out videos. Jon says delays still make him angry. This somehow segues into Emile claiming that Jon is only sane because the Runaway Guys provides an outlet for him to let out this rage... on Emile.
  • The first level of episode 12, Jon decides to go back to breaking the game with stickers like in episode 1. By using a gear sticker, he prevents Emile from platforming over an icicle by blocking his vision and causing lag.
    Emile: "Oh my God, Jon!"
    Jon: "What?"
    Emile: "I can't jump because you're slowing down the game!"
    Jon: "I don't know what you're talking about."
    • The big black stickers also get all over the Guys' avatars, making them look like Run–D.M.C. according to Jon, which Emile mishears as "BillyMC".
  • Tim accidentally switches Stephen Fry's voice back on when he hits the wrong button.
  • The Guys play a minigame that involves riding a toboggan, but the toboggan just looks like a featureless platform leading up to something else, so they ALL get caught offguard when it moves away with them on it.
  • When Jon somehow gets stuck on top of the planet Earth design at the end, and the level won't end until he comes down to join the others, he decides to go megalomaniacal:
    • And then he ends up falling into the Earth somehow, dies, and is forced down to where the others are. So basically, the game told him to shut up.
    • "This is the LP that never ends! Yes it goes on and on my friend!"
    • "Less coffee... :("
      Jon: (after removing all the coffee he placed) "Heh, yeah coffee!"
      Emile: "I guess now there's NO coffee!"
      Jon: "Oh, you are not putting that in the video."
      (video ends)

    Wii Party 

Board Game Island

  • The first video starts off with the Guys observing the weird Miis Emile has on the title screen.
    • The Miis also show up as a cheering or commiserating crowd during the game, leading to Jon's Running Gag "CAPTAIN FALCON APPROVES!" or "CAPTAIN FALCON DOES NOT APPROVE!"
    • One of the minigames involves the Guys having to take pictures of a crowd of Miis when the biggest number of them is smiling. Unfortunately, said crowd of Miis are made up of Emile's esoteric collection, including many ones where it's impossible to tell if they're smiling or not...
      • Some of the Miis seen on Emile's Wii are Captain Falcon, Pikachu, Brock, Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Chicken Little, Bubbles, Porky Minch, Mr. Saturn, Satoru Iwata, Michael Jackson, a Mii with a penguin for a face, a Mii whose face resembles a bicycle, and a horse.
  • Due to having only three players, the game randomly picks a Mii as a fourth character for them. The one it picks is a male Mii named Luca.
    Jon: "Hey, Lucahjin! You look different this time...That's a nice goatee you have, Lucahjin..."
    Tim: "I knew it was too good to be true..."
    Emile: "I knew it was gonna pick something stupid, but I didn't know that..."
    Tim: "All those times I fff- never mind..."
    Jon: "Ho ho..."
    Tim: "Juuuust kidding...!"
    Jon: "Oh Tim..."
    • And then Reese herself comments:
      Reese: OH MY GOD.. I LOOK SO GOOD :D Yeeahhhhh ladies!!!!!
  • The ridiculous voice Emile does for the announcer.
    Jon: "The normal voice is the highlight voice?!"
    • Near the end of the game, where the voice starts to revert back to his Magolor voice.
  • Jon yelling "SUPERMAN!" during Cosmic Capers.
  • Tim does really well for most of the board, especially in the minigames, but his last few die rolls send him not only backwards about fifteen or so spaces, but then to hellnote . I guess the universe had to rebalance itself after his win on Fortune Street.
  • At the end, "How many teams have George Jefferson and a snowman on them?"
  • The outro consists of Tim and Jon stating their names in an unsure manner, then Emile claiming he forgot his own name.
    Emile: "Time to start a JRPG about my amnesia!"
  • In the Walk-Off mini game, where the players must try to travel a certain distance, Jon goes way past the mark while everyone else stops behind it, leading to this Call-Back.
    Jon: "Bye, everybody! I don't understand yards!"

Globe Trot

  • Jon's reaction to the game's choice of souvenir in Canada (a bottle of maple syrup).
    Jon: "THAT'S RACIST! THAT'S RACIST! Also, why is it in Vancouver? It should be in Quebec! THAT'S RACIST!"
    • Even funnier, Jon eventually gets that space. And Emile gets the Mexican one where he buys a sombrero.
  • Jon buys a helicopter and gets it stolen by the CPU right after that.
    Jon: "YOU JERK! I just bought that!" *Mii Jon rummages through pockets and panics* "Why is my helicopter not in my pocket?!"
    • And then later on, Jon buys several vehicle cards, and Emile jokes about him using them all at once. Cue Jon wanting to ride a taxi inside a train that's being carried by a helicopter.
    • Actually, a lot of things involving vehicle cards, and anything involving helicopters.
  • Jon comparing Emile's version of the announcer's voice to 'a Russian Elmo'.
  • The group pointing out how they're talking more about economics while playing the game than they did on their Fortune Street LP, leading to Jon doing his "Mexican Waluigi" voice again.
  • Emile uses a card that lets him travel to any airport in the world. One of his choices is FINLAND! Jon also notes that there are only 3 airports Emile can choose from and questions what happened to the economy.

Swap Meet

  • After Tim is left out of the intro and points it out, he proceeds to dominate the rest of the game.
  • During the intro of the game itself, Emile tries to use his Russian Elmo voice and Jon interjects, resulting in the two of them arguing over the use of it. Meanwhile Tim's quietly thumbing through the explanation screens for the players at home, causing Emile and Jon to accuse each other of doing it to avoid Russian Elmo. Jon then asks "Russian Elmo" to explain the game, which he does pretty well.
  • Emile points out that the game randomly chose a stripe scheme for his Mii and the other blue Miis, making them look like they're all wearing polo shirts.
  • Tim swaps out a Mii, Emile says that Mii was his mom's ex-boyfriend, Jon comments "Well she didn't want him!"
  • Jon initially tries to build a three in a row with platinum Miis for extra points, but eventually switches a platinum Mii for a blue Mii for an easier match. After the minigame...
    Jon: "I'll take the guy who kinda looks like me..."
    * chooses random Mii that turns out to be platinum*
    Jon: (while Emile is laughing) "This is how this game's going to go, isn't it?"
    Tim: "What the balls?"
  • In the mini-game "Risky Railroad" where each player must pick to go left, right, or straight and hope it doesn't lead to a dead end, Emile tries to win by doing absolutely nothing and the game automatically puts him on the straight path each time, but on the second junction, the straight path is the dead end.
    Jon: "Nice try, Luigi."

Spin Off

  • At the end of Part 1, Jon has a 1 vs 1 mini game against the CPU. The mini-game's objective is to drive a moped to deliver a pizza. Jon is singing made up lyrics to the Spider-Man 2 Pizza Delivery Song, bumps into the curb twice which costs him the mini-game, and Emile states that Jon's singing was the best part of the video.
  • After noting that their avatars wear bow ties for this game, Jon keeps making Doctor Who references, which go completely over Emile's head.
  • After getting annoyed with Emile continuing to do the Russian Elmo announcer voice, Jon retaliates by reading out "Bank Bonanza!" in an increasingly deep and slurred voice, which Emile dubs "Bankenstein's Monster".
    • At the beginning of the video, Emile is trying to do the Russian Elmo voice before Jon interjects. Emile then begins reading the instructions in an increasingly fast and slurred imitation (with Jon doing his own interpretation underneath and Tim eventually quietly adding in one himself), capping it off with what is basically "Xena the Turkey",.
  • The first few rounds mostly consist of medals being added to the bank, leading to about 12,000 medals being stored. Then someone activates a minigame — keep in mind, whoever wins the minigame wins everything in the bank. Jon wins.
    • Even more amusingly, when the game ends, there's a line graph of how well everyone did. Jon's line skyrockets absurdly, attracting the amusement of the guys.
      Jon: "Ha! Take THAT, math! That's what I think of your graphs!"


  • Jon manages to win Walk-Off, giving him the game. His response?
    Jon: "Fuck you, America! ...I don't know why I said that."
    • It's because Walk-Off measures distance in yards.
  • The game manages to draw three different Mario Miis in a single game, and the Guys don't like any of them.

Pair Games

  • "Another day in the robot factory..."
  • Jon and Tim are playing Meet and Greet, a mini-game where they both need to choose from a set of doors until they see each other. The first door Tim opens has a Mii sitting on a toilet. Tim and Emile shout Tim's catchphrase.
  • Emile suggests that the real reason a game involves balancing Miis on the sail yards of a ship is a really blatant attempt at people-smuggling over the border.
  • At the beginning of Friend Connection, Jon jokes about wanting to play as Captain Falcon, then Jon and Emile immediately see the featured couples and react accordingly.
    Emile: *bursts out laughing*
    Jon: "CAPTAIN FALCON, WHY ARE YOU DATING THAT HORSE?! Captain Fal... And then, Snape and... Hermione?!"
    Tim: "What the heck?"
    Emile: "Captain Falcon, you got some 'splaining to do!"
    • It led to this gift sometime later.
    • Became Hilarious in Hindsight since Jon and Reese are now married.
    • When looking over the rules:
      Jon: "I'm not allowed to talk to you? Dude, I love this game already!"
  • Jon gets locked into doing a sports announcer voice when Tim and Emile play the Match Pairs game.
  • Similar to the "George Jefferson and a snowman" example above, at the end Emile comments that "Darth Vader is holding hands with Pippi Longstocking!"
  • In Match Up, a game of Memory with Miis, Emile spots a Mii version of Bubbles in the crowd and brings up how he used to mishear the theme song as "Buttercup the topless fighter." Jon starts to rant about how Squick-y that would be until he spots himself in the crowd of Miis and lets out a deadpan "Hi. It's me."

    Castle Crashers 
  • When Jake was first introduced, he was labeled as 4 v2.0.
  • As Jon is playing as An Ice Person, he introduces himself with a quote from Mr Freeze...but gets it wrong.
    Jon: "What killed the ice age?—Oh my God, I got it wrong!"
    Emile: "'What killed the ice age? The dinosaurs!'"
  • The ending of Part 1.
  • At the end of the first episode, Emile gives Jon twenty Canadian dollars as thanks for buying the DLC of the game ahead of time. Jon happily takes it and says that the DLC was actually just three dollars.
  • "BROCCOLI!!!!"
  • In episode 2, much like in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Josh manages to be the Butt-Monkey without even being there, as Jake denies knowing him or having done collabs with him.
  • Tim reworks a Catchphrase: "IN THE FOREST!"
  • After the 'Josh/Jake being Number Four' thing is brought up again, the Guys discuss what numbering the three regular Guys should have, and Jake points out that Tim must be Number Two.
  • At the start of episode 3, the Guys fight a four-way battle royale. Jake is knocked out early and decides to commentate on the three regular Guys' fight. As he is known for Buffy Speak, this gets...interesting.
  • Tim nonchalantly stealing the King's horse at the start of episode 4.
  • In episode 5, Emile and Jake realise they are both members of the "kicked out of Jon's house during an LP" club.
    • They also get into a brief discussion over whether Jake's inclusion would count, since it wasn't exactly Jon's house he was kicked out of, but, in Emile's words, "a place he generally resides in."
      Jon: "Mmm, yeah, that's true, I'm not always there."
      Emile: "See, there's thought behind my words! ... sometimes."
    • The Running Gag that Jake keeps getting lightsabers that he doesn't want.
    • At the end, Jon mispronounces the word hyperbole as "hyper-bowl". Emile corrects him, then the Guys wonder what the Hyperbowl would be, deciding that it's whatever comes after the Super Bowl. Of course, this then leads to Jon bringing up Chris Redfield's football career.
  • In episode 6, Emile accidentally calls Jake "Stephen", then makes a reference to Steve the Trooper, surprising himself by broaching the subject.
  • In episode 8, when the guys reach the ship level, Tim starts singing the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean. Emile joins in in his usual style, prompting Jake to say:
  • The other Guys' astounded reaction to Tim having so many hitpoints in episode 11.

    WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$! 
  • In episode 5, all three Guys keep getting the 'insert a cartridge into a Game Boy' minigame, and for a while Tim is the only one who gets it right. Jon says he's going to go home and practice putting cartridges into his Game Boy in Real Life just to make sure he can still do it.
  • Many of the challenges the Guys have to do while playing microgames in 'Listen to the Doctor' mode in episode 6, especially:
    • Tim gets 'talk to yourself', which as Emile points out is basically just Let's Playing;
    • Jon gets 'sit like a girl';
    • Jon gets 'tell a big fat lie'...
    • Emile gets 'mumbling', and accidentally whispers instead.
    • At the end of the episode, Emile points out the last game they're playing is All for One:
      Emile: "This game requires us all to work together."
      Jon: "...we are already screwed."
  • Emile decides to end off the finale (episode 7) by having all three of them pass around a controller to play a rope jump challenge. It goes on ridiculously long, and after Jon uses weaponised Tempting Fate as before, Emile himself is the one who breaks the winning streak.

      Tim: "#Weeeee...are so stuuuupid, my boooo-ooobs...and we'll...keeeep on stickin' the bra..."
    • Emile's reaction to the video coming out on Tuesday:
      Jon: "This should be a Tuesday, I think."
      Emile: "Episode Two on Tuesday."
      Jon: "OH MY GOD, EMILE! SHUT UP!"
      Tim: "And we'll post our wedding on Wednesday."
    • They get on the topic of guests and Emile tries to talk up Jake only to wind up either offhandedly insulting him, then the other guys when he tries to make it a more direct compliment, then ultimately insulting all three of them at once in an impressive display of foot-in-mouth syndrome.
  • Episode 3:
    • The beginning of the episode:
      Jon: "Emile is panting like a dog right now and is almost licking his microphone. So that shows how you excited he is for this episode of Rayman Origins."
      Emile: "What? You're really going to do that?"
      Jon: "Yes, yes I am."
      Emile: "I was just humming the tune."
      Jon: "You were going *panting sound* in front of the mic, you were like ready to lick it!"
    • Emile's reaction to Rayman's victory move.
      Emile: "I like how Rayman just humps the air whenever he succeeds at one of those things."
      Jon: "He's only a torso to be fair."
      Emile: "I mean, his arms and legs are invisible, his girlfriend could be too."
      Emile: "That animation is forever ruined for me, now that I've said that out loud."
      Jon: "That animation of humping has been ruined for you? Oh no."
    • "Two for fifty at Subway!"
    • Emile failing miserably at doing a Billy Mays parody.

      Jon: "No, regular kind."

    • Emile and Jon talk about the Canadian dialect.
    Emile: "I like how Canadians say aboot."

    (Emile laughs)
    Emile: "That is the best thing that I've heard all day."
    Jon: "Wow, you haven't heard much today then."
    Emile: "No, I said 'the best thing that I've heard all d-eh.'"

    • Emile does another whopper of a pun when he sees Globox holding onto a ledge with the top of his mouth, but gets interrupted by...
      Emile: "So Jon, when grabbing onto something, remember to-"
      • He does get to say it a few seconds later, though.

        Jon: (deadpan) "Emile, shut the fuck up, seriously."

    • Emile drops another MLP reference:
      Jon: "What is Canterlot?"
      Emile: "Nevermind."
      Jon: "Horses?"
      (Emile laughs)
      Jon: (sighs) "That means yes."
      Emile: "Maybe."
      Jon: "That also means yes."
      Emile: "Possibly."
      Jon: "That definitely means yes."
  • Episode 22:
    • Emile brings up how he likes the stage's art direction, and Jon gets annoyed with him (apparently) bringing up something up from four years ago, and then he brings up the good ol' "D'oh I missed" and "Move Faster Pokey"

  • Episode 24:
    • The bubblized Rayman floating on screen during the boss's entrance.
  • Episode 26:
    • After recovering the final tooth to unlock The Land of the Livid Dead, Emile lets loose one final tooth pun... But then spouts a second one afterward. Jon (Globox) immediately slaps him (Rayman), causing Emile to let loose a third consecutive tooth pun; in response, Jon lets loose the windup slap he was charging after the first slap... Which launches Emile right into the doorway!
      Emile: "NO! We went in the door!"
      Jon: *as the Land of the Livid Dead is loading* "I don't care." *Tim says "Oh my God" in the background* "We're doing it NOW. YOUR PENANCE FOR YOUR CRIMES."
      Emile: "No...!"
  • Finale:
    • The Guys don't see Tim after the blimp explodes in the ending and assume that he died. They try to think of what would go on Tim's tombstone and decide on "Rest in Peace, in the Bathroom".
    • After the credits, Jon and Emile are fighting, and Emile says that whoever hits last hits best. Jon ends up delivering the last hit before the game cuts away, prompting him to yell in a vaguely Peewee Herman-esque voice that he got the best hit. The best part of this? The endslate adds a stat for Jon saying "1 best hit - 1 total"!
  • Land of the Livid Dead Part 1:
    • They enter the level by Jon immediately smacking Emile into the doorway again.
    • The outro is hilarious in its' own right... Jon reached the end, but messed up, so he stands atop a coffin holding his arms up... and after Emile requests him and Tim to be brought back, they get up totem pole style and hold a position as Jon sings a funeral march as they all went down in style.
    • Jon wonders how Josh and Jake did this level in Josh's own LP of the game. They did better, as they finished in one episode, while Emile, Jon, and Tim end up doing it in three!
  • Land of the Livid Dead Part 2:
    • Wherein only two minutes in, Emile wrecks his usual child-friendly standard:
      Emile: *After respawning* "Got this and YESSS..." *Rayman is slapped and consequently bubblized* "Oh fuck, you punched me in the head—" *Realizes what he just said* "I MEAN—"
    • Emile wonders if the evil old ladies in the Land of the Livid Dead play evil bingo with their enemies' severed heads.
  • Land of the Livid Dead Part 3:
    • Emile ends up talking about boobs:
      Emile: "You can only have so many boobs, as in two."
      Jon: "Touche."
      Emile & Tim: "Two-che."
      Jon: "Oh my god, Emile! Shut up!"
      Emile: "Tim said it too. I'm not the only one who's guilty of my crimes."
      Jon: "Both of you, shut up!"
    • Since the three of them are doing the stage blind, they had no idea that the credits were appearing for a second time. Their reactions were understandable.
      Emile: "OHHH NOOOOOO!"
      Jon: "Not again! Not again!"
      Emile: "Abandon ship!"
      Jon: "Fuck this!"
    • Emile notices a certain string of letters being spelled out in the credits.
      Emile: "PUN VAN- It says pun!"
      * Jon promptly destroys it*
      Emile: No!
      Jon: "No it doesn't. I fixed it. I made it better!"
    • "You can't show that on a Christian internet."

    LittleBigPlanet 2

  • Episode 2: Grappling Hooked
    • Tim's intro song:
      Tim: "A long, long time ago, on a planet far away, these four guys were planning an attack. One had a fishbowl on his head, another looked like Doctor Dread. There was a frog and then an egg. That's where, we found... this toilet."
    • Becomes even funnier when there actually turns out to be a toilet in the level.
    • Emile warns when they get the grappling hooks that this mechanic does not go well with multiplayer. He is repeatedly proved right over the course of the video as everyone keeps grappling each other instead of the anchor points.
    • Jon keeps muttering "I AM THE NIGHT" at random times.
  • Episode 3: Day at the Races
    • The Runaway Guys attempt an optional co-operative challenge based on used a switch to make platforms slide in and out of the wall. Hilarity Ensues. As a summary/teaser:

    • Jon changes his avatar. Or at least, attempts to.
  • Episode 4: Angela Lansbury
    Reese: "Hey Jon? You will give me an egg."
    • After the Guys get the grabinators, Emile reassures them by saying that they're not as invasive as the grappling hooks and they should have an easier time not killing each other. Guess what ends up happening.

  • Episode 5: Rat Race
  • Episode 6: The Armory, The Bakery

    • Jon's new avatar, "The Phantom of the Anime".

    • The entire basketball minigame at the start of the episode. Highlights include (but are not limited to):
      • Reese throwing the ball into the net while also throwing Jon into it, thus giving him a chance to slam dunk the ball and steal Reese's points.
      • Jon apparently kicking the ball straight into the net.
        Jon: "He's on fire!"
    • The episode has a Running Gag of Jon punching things, at first with a sticker of a fist, then with a stickable object in the shape of a large steel forearm. He starts getting carried away with it, sticking a few metal arms to Emile and Reese, before getting carried away with it at the end and accidentally sticks a metal arm to himself right on his Sackboy's crotch.
    • Jon spots a x2 area, but Tim and Reese have already gone further up in the level, which risks killing Jon by scrolling him offscreen, so he says:
      Jon: "Come on down. You're the next contestant on 'You're going to kill me'."
    • Tim and Reese are the only ones left alive at one point, leading to this:
      Jon: "Go back to the wall of punches and you will bring us back."
      Reese: "Uh... maybe it's our time to shine, Tim and I."
      Jon: "Fair enough."
      Emile: "Alright, go for it. Prove yourself."\\
[Reese immediately dies]

    • Reese getting stuck under a pile of RoboBuns.
    • When they start the MechaPups section, the very first thing they manage to do is get two people stuck between electrified walls and kill Emile.

  • Episode 16: The Hungry Caterpillars
    • Reese's response to Eve (who she insists on calling Shakira) and her comments after they climbed the tree.
      Reese: "Girl, what you know, you're a goddamn apple! You have a bite taken out of your face!"
      Tim: "You don't even have any arms!"

    • Reese struggles on a difficult minigame, resulting in this gem:
      Emile: "Reese, would Eggman give up?"
      Reese: "Yes, that's why I handed my controller to Jon five minutes ago."
    • The ending.
  • Episode 18: Getting to the Higgenbottam of This!
    • Reese makes a pun:
      Emile: "Hop into the foreground."
      Reese: "Get it, the fourground?"
      Emile and Reese: "OHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
      Jon: "Why did you do that?! Don't encourage him!"
  • Episode 19: Hero Unknown
    • "Gentlemen, behold...THE SUN!"
    • Jon once again changing his avatar, Steel Thunder being off on (yet-another) paid vacation. He is "The Unknown Adventurer", which he states is a character from another series in disguise to help in the Cosmic Imagisphere, which Blingbotnik claims to recognize due to two fox tails.

    • In a Call-Back to the very first episode, Reese and Emile realise Moo is in the end credits and are delighted.
    • After the credits has finished rolling, the Guys get an option to replay the entire cutscene, which included the credits for whatever reason. This happens.
      Jon (jokingly): "And now to replay it!"
      Reese: "No, don't. I'm leaving if you do."
      Emile: (hovers over "replay")
      Jon: "Don't you dare. Emile, I was joking."
      Emile: "Lucah, you must feel the pain we felt during Rayman Origins." *presses it*
      Reese: "Don't. I'm leaving if you do! I'm out!"
      Tim: "Goodbye."
      Jon: "He'd better have hit circle. He'd better have hit circle!"
      *Cutscene starts playing.*
      Jon: "He didn't!"
      Emile: "RUN AWAY!"
      Jon: "GET HIM! GET HIM!!"
      * Sounds of Emile fleeing, getting caught, and screaming can be heard in the background.*

    Sonic Adventure 
  • The general roles the guys have in the LPs get reversed for this one. Normally Tim messes up while Emile goofs off, leaving Jon the one who actually focused on beating the game. Here, though, Emile is prone to making mistakes and dying, Jon is more focused on messing around as much as possible, and Tim is the one focused on beating the game.
    • The fact that Jon is basically playing through the game as if he's streaming.
    • Nearly every teaser image for each video's thumbnail features one of the Sonic characters making a ridiculous facial expression.
  • Emile losing lives in the first episode. Before they even started the first stage, they were on a negative. The ones of most important note were...
    • Losing to Chaos Zero on the first hit!
    • And then drowning in the pool (this death was intentional, the humor comes from Jon and Tim's incredulous reactions that it's possible).
    • And then after all that, Emile manages to run into the first enemy in the game. Good start.
  • At the end of Part 2, we have Moonwalking Sonic.
  • The entirety of Part 3 has Jon controlling Sonic and running around with a mannequin. The sight of Sonic sitting on top of a driven car while carrying a mannequin over his head the entire time is as funny as it sounds.
    • The description is quite accurate.
      Description: We give the control to Jon and immediately regret it...
  • In Part 4, when Jon actually does play a level, he finishes it and just after Sonic poses, Tails drops down right in front of him.
  • Midway during Part 5, Emile manages to get the camera to be outside the map..
  • In Episode 7, Jon gets the employee card stuck near an NPC, meaning he's unable to pick it up until it respawns where it was obtained. So, instead of going to Speed Highway, he spends the rest of the episode showing off the Chao Garden. Most specifically, the Chao they had raised in practice sessions. His name is ÇカÆÜ.
  • Episode 8 is just a barrel of laughs.
  • In Episode 9, Emile repeatedly attempts to bring the Old Man Mannequin with him to the Mystic Ruins only for them to end in failure. At one point while carrying him a cutscene occurs and this causes him to glitch out of the game.
  • In Episode 10, Jon comments every time the weather changes on the Egg Carrier with "Happy clouds!" or "Angry clouds!" in a Sesame Street-like voice. Also, NPC Tails keeps actually pitching in to help out Sonic (controlled by Tim) for once.
  • At the beginning of Episode 11, Tim tries to grab a grappling hook, only to miss, which triggers a glitch that leaves Sonic standing in midair.
  • In Episode 12, the Guys' reaction to Eggman reusing the same voice clip he had just been spouting in the previous boss fight.
  • During Episode 13, they reach a part where Sonic has to run away from a boulder a la Indiana Jones. What happens next needs to be seen to be believed.
    • This particular stage seems to be prone to even more glitches than usual, repeatedly killing Jon for ridiculous reasons, and at one point, a button just refuses to be pressed.
    • When Emile takes over at the end, he removes any dramatic tension from the flashback section by jumping all around it and repeatedly missing the spot where the cutscene triggers.
  • Emile tests the limits of an automated section. With predictable results.
    • At the very start of Episode 14, Emile says 'Alright, time to prove I don't suck' and Sonic is immediately grabbed by a robot.
    • The guys take notice of the ridiculously large amount of power-ups, 1up boxes, and ring boxes. They wonder if Eggman's becoming forgetful when he leaves a bunch of items around his own ship that could help the nemesis he's supposed to want to destroy.
  • In Episode 15, Tim's first fight against the Egg Viper ends with him phasing through the floor, which Emile and Jon react to with simultaneous big whats; the ensuing slow-motion replay drags out both Emile and Jon's reactions.
  • In Episode 16, Emile exploits a glitch to get Tails to start cheering as he's killed by Robotnik at the end of his boss fight. Then he uses his ability to fly to completely break Windy Valley by just flying over the entire stage, which is made even funnier due to both Jon and Tim's disbelief.
    Emile: (jumping off the edge of the starting platform) "I am Tails, so fuck you, level design."
  • Episode 17 sees more fun with the Old Man, as this time Jon accidentally winds up causing him to glitch through the ground and disappear. Then he later drops him down a sewer.
    • Right before Old Man's reappearance, the guys fail to notice another man walking in midair. Several commentators did notice it however, and all the surprised comments about them missing out on what happened are amusing to read on their own.
    • When the guys talk to a NPC that's standing next to Big, he comments about a ladies' man going on dates with multiple girls, leading the three to assume that Big's the one he's referring to.
      Emile: "Big goes out with different girls every day of the week? Man, I'm not surprised."
      Jon: "He calls them all Froggy, too. It's very strange."
      Tim: "Well, there's a reason he's called... ummm, nah, nevermind."
      * All three of them start laughing.*
      Emile: "There's also the reason why they say... he has a rod."
      Tim: "And... he catches 'fish' with it."
      Jon: "Oh my god, Tim!"
  • During the penultimate level of Tails' story, Emile manages to waste every single one of his lives, leaving Tails on his last life. For the rest of the Tails section, the guys (especially Jon, who has to fight the final boss) become extremely paranoid that they'll wind up losing their final life and end up getting a Game Over. It never happens.
  • The guys having a blast with Robotnik's dialogue in Episode 20. At one point, he starts (rather pathetically) yelling after Tails to wait for him, causing Jon to come up with the Alternative Character Interpretation that he's acting out only because he has dependency issues. Shortly after that, Robotnik angrily yells, "You little fox!" which Emile and Jon both note that it suspiciously sounds like he's trying to yell something else instead.
    • The sarcastic response to Tails trying to muster the courage to challenge Robotnik:
      Tails: "I've changed a lot since I started hanging with Sonic..."
      Tim: "Yeah you have, you're so brave now."
      Jon: "I've gotten brave, I've crashed multiple planes, I've been shot at, I've almost been turned into a robot. Sonic made my life great!"
  • Knuckles being lonely... so much so that he hooked up with a bat. This is repeated a few times in Episode 21.
  • The "Knuckles party" in Episode 22.
    • Emile attempts to climb into an elevator as Knuckles when he's following Robotnik, but yet another glitch occurs and leaves Knuckles climbing the air. Even better is Tim's choice of Shout-Out:
      Tim: "WHAT IS THIS!?"
  • Episode 23 has more glitchy antics when Emile winds up unintentionally running around on the roof of a cave in the Mystic Ruins.
    • While gliding around searching for the last emerald shard he needs to complete the level, a pillar of lava erupts from underneath Emile (who has 0 rings) and hits him, giving him an instant death - and then to add insult to injury, the hit knocks him over into a pit as well.
    • After his first death in Red Mountain, Emile is deposited right near the aforementioned shard he's been looking for with it in plain sight at one point — and he completely fails to notice it. There's even an annotation on the screen when it comes up that says "Hi, there!", adding to the hilarity.
    • At one point in the Mystic Ruins, Knuckles is at the very top of one of the pillars at the Master Emerald shrine. The camera angle makes Knuckles look like he's "asking his master for a treat".
      Jon: "Knuckles, no begging at the dinner table."
  • Episode 25 gives us Jon's "Knock Knock, it's Knuckles" tangent:
    KNOCK KNOCK, where's the key I have it somewhere in my pocket hang on a sec..."
  • Episode 27 sees Jon attempting to walk up a missile, but he has to do so very slowly to gain any traction. Jon ends up moving so slow that the video is sped up to make Amy move at a faster speed, causing the guys to talk in incomprehensible chipmunk voices. Fans of the LPer raocow will feel right at home.
  • Episode 28 has Jon messing around with the aforementioned missile some more, this time by stranding some Chao on it before throwing them off.
    • Then he decides to leave a few Chao on there so they can befriend each other; Emile calls him out on it and insists he wants to ruin their lives.
      Jon: "Once you learn how to get down on your own without being thrown off the cliff, then you can have a name!"
    • By the time he actually starts a level, Amy has to move levers around, but her jerky animation combined with the controls make the guys assume she's twerking. And right after that, Emile's innocence strikes again by joking that Amy can move on in the level that she's finished her lamaze class for the day:
      Jon: "Do you know what a lamaze class is?"
      Emile: "I thought it was a type of exercise?"
      Jon: "...for pregnant women."
    • Jon has some fun screwing with Zero. First he stays up on a ladder that Zero can't follow him up on, and spends some time moving up and down on it while Zero tries to jump after him with no luck. Later on, he attempts to stay up high in a small alcove that Zero continues to try to jump up to, again with little luck — only to suddenly make a successful jump and go into the alcove after Amy, causing Jon, Emile, and Tim to all freak out.
    • Jon's screwing around in the second level and exploring every single bathroom stall when he arrives at one. Even funnier, Tim nearly forgets to say his Catchphrase during this when they first enter. Later on, they find a room full of urinals and Emile comments that they were in the women's room, making Jon literally pause the game before he clarifies what he meant.
  • Episode 29 has this line after Jon hits the bomb capsule that's right in front of the exit to Hot Shelter:
    Jon (in sinister voice): "Amy the Destroyer is here to leave 'cause she's really fucking bored!"
  • Episode 30 sees Emile return to the Egg Carrier to collect Amy's second powerup. When he takes her down the elevator into the ship, it closes early and goes right through her feet.
    • Emile plays the hammer minigame to get said power up. After all the trouble Jon had when he played it, Emile beats it on the first try.
  • Episode 31: Emile makes a pun about what the exit would be called on the Egg Carrier, calling it the "egg-sit", he then proceeds to tell a story about how he made a bad pun on Twitter and Mike Pollock responded to it.
    Mike Pollock: Some day you'll make your kids very ashamed, and me very proud.
  • Episode 32, appropriately named "Pure Insanity", where we have Big the Cat goofing around Station Square (due to Jon, of course) looking for Froggy... It has to be seen to be believed, even the Old Man statue gets involved.
    • He starts his turn as Big caning someone with Big's fishing rod for not telling him where Froggy is; done all in character, of course.
    • Jon was a riot the whole episode through and through, considering he spends practically the whole episode doing an impression of Big.
      Emile: "Are we going to see any progress in this video at all?"
      Jon (as Big): "Nooooope, not at alllll!"
    • At one point Jon even groans over one of Emile's puns in character.
    • The running gag of Jon messing around with the mannequin of the old man comes to a head with Emile saying Jon will essentially be broken from glee between the mannequin and the Big voice; he gets proven right when Jon becomes incredibly giddy when Big throws the old man vast distances.
    • Tim title-dropping the episode after the above after Emile claims he called Jon's breakdown.
      Tim: "I know what I'd call this. Pure insanity!"
      Episode description: You said it, Tim.
    • Jon's intro, where he describes in full detail how Big's stages are a fan favorite and how much of a beloved character Big is.
    • And to make things even better? The official Sonic the Hedgehog Youtube channel commented on this video, saying it only gets better from here.
  • Episode 33 has Emile dying. In the racing mini-game. As BIG THE CAT.
  • In episode 34, Emile tells how a lot of kids he knew that wanted to play Sonic Adventure but didn't have the system for it thought that Big the Cat had a sword, and that whenever he told them it's not the case, they would wonder if he wielded a gun instead. He concludes that people do indeed confuse him for Duke Nukem.
    • Following that, has Jon (in Big's voice, of course) accidentally saying that Duke never had a gunnote , confusing Emile.
    • Emile also lampshades that you'd never know he and Tim had been playing as Big since Jon keeps commenting as him even though he's not in control anymore.
  • Episode 35: Emile starts trying to "counter" Jon's goofy Big voice by making a bunch of bad puns. Jon is not happy about this.
    • They also start calling Big's fishing rod a sword-gun in reference to last episode.
    • Tim manages to get too side-tracked while exploring the underwater section of Emerald Coast and ends up accidentally drowning Big when he's stuck in a cave.
    • They make fun of how much time they've been wasting while playing as Big.
      Jon (in Big's voice): "What's the timer at on the video? I'm really curious. How long have we been playing as Big the Cat?"
      Emile: "Actually, exactly 59 minutes."
      Jon (in Big's voice): "Amazing."
  • Episode 36: The Cat shenanigans continue. Jon starts using the voice even when talking as himself and not as Big.
    • This gem from Tim:
      Emile: "Is Froggy your wife?"
      Jon: "Nah, Froggy's a guy."
      Tim: "Froggy's the LUBRICANT!"
    • Jon gets his line broke while trying to reel a fish in, meaning all three guys have lost a life playing as, of all characters, Big.
    • At one point, Jon gets stuck in a room with the camera facing the wall. After a few moments of struggling to find his way back out, the door opens with Big staring right at the camera, making them all freak out.
  • Episode 37:
    • Jon, in character as Big, repeatedly urges the viewers to buy his memoir and audiobook on too many platforms to count. This gag becomes so spectacular during the credits that Jon is no longer able to convincingly keep up the impression.
      Jon (as Big): "Buy my book."
    • Knowing that Jon will probably keep playing as Big, Emile takes the XBox controller and removes the batteries from it. You don't have to Take Our Word for It either; you can actually see the "Please reconnect the controller" message on-screen!
  • Episode 38:
    • Jon, following up from the Big run, starts doing a robot voice for E-102 Gamma. It only gets worse when he starts messing about with his running mode (or rather, car mode).
    • The three's reaction when Jon realizes that Gamma and his three fellow E-100 robots happen to have the same colors the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wear.
    • When Froggy appears on Eggman's monitor during the E-100 robots' mission briefing, Jon busts out the Big voice one last time.
      Emile: "Even when we're done with Big the Cat, we're not done with Big the Cat."
  • Episode 40:
    • Winning the fight with Sonic in about thirteen seconds by doing nothing but firing his gun while Sonic runs in a straight line back and forth.
      Emile: "I don't know how Eggman even has so much trouble with this."
    • At the very beginning of Windy Valley, Emile accidentally blows up the bridge he's standing on, resulting in him using Gamma's hover mode to very slowly fall to his death.
    • Emile explains that the reason Gamma was put into the game was because Sonic fans had been asking for someone that can shoot people, and Sega found it too unorthodox to give a Sonic character a gun.
    • Toward the end of the episode, Emile tells Jon and Tim about how white he is by saying that when he first heard the song Pretty Fly For a White Guy, he thought it was about a pretty fly (as in the insect) being given to a white guy. What makes this funnier is the fact Emile is the least white of the guys.
      Emile: "[...] And considering I'm not even white..."
      Jon: "Well, in skin tone you are, and in mentality, my god, you definitely are."
  • Episode 41:
    • During his run, Tim hits zero lives. He then purposefully avoids getting any new lives, because he knows it'll make the next stage Jon plays harder for him. Which leads into...
    • Jon getting a game over. You know that little wooden raft that leads to the Egg Carrier? The water there can kill you, apparently. Jon, somehow falls IN THE TINY GAP BETWEEN THE RAFT AND THE PLATFORM, and he did not take this well at all.
      Jon: "WHAT?!"
      Emile: "YOU GOT A GAME OVER!"
      Jon: "WHAT THE FUCK?!"
      Tim: "Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen!"
      Jon: "Game, come on! That's fucking bullshit, and you know it! You fuckers working together to make sure I get a game over, not cool!"
      Emile: "I honestly didn't think you'd die to that..."
      Jon: "I shouldn't have died to that, LOOK AT THE GAP, it's not even big enough for me to fall through! HOW DID THAT KILL ME?! That makes NO SENSE!"
      • The fact that this is the only game over they've gotten in the entire series, and it's because of a glitch in the overworld that wasn't even Jon's fault.
  • Episode 42:
    • Emile spends a good two minutes setting up a joke at the end of the video, hampered by his lack of knowledge on how to work an Xbox. The end result has to be seen to be believed.
  • Finale:
    • When trying to score the last hit on Perfect Chaos:
      Jon: "This is for Big the Caaaaaaaaat!"
      (fails to get the hit)
      Jon: "Not enough."
      Emile: "How fitting for Big the Cat that it wasn't enough."
    • Emile questions Tails after the final battle:
      Tails: "All's well that ends well, right?"

    The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures 
  • Meta example: The recording set up, as shown on Stephen's Vlog.
  • Running gags:
    • Upon reaching enough Force Gems to power up their swords, Stephen tends to announce that they've got their "(word that begins with 'j') Juice!"
    • One of the more common reasons for someone messing up is that they mistake someone else's player Link for their own.
    • Jon is the only one who doesn't Fail A Spot Check on a regular basis, much to his annoyance.
  • Episode 1: Lake Hylia
    • Stephen sings in the intro. When he gets to the part where the four work together, the Guys boo him.
    • The guys take turns reading the story text as the start, but rather than letting someone else take over after his paragraph, Emile keeps going... and then criticizes the others for not taking over from him. Cue thirty seconds of them complaining about him not giving them a chance.
      Emile: "Every time I would wait for you to pick it up 'cause I saw you wanting to, and then you wouldn't, so then I would start talking, and it was right as I started talking that you would lean in."
      Jon: "You waited less than a second!"
      • Stephen tried to rerail the dialouge back towards the text. "Tried".
        Stephen: (over Emile and Jon's argument) "[C]hildhood friend Link used the power of the Four Swor- IT'S GOIN' BLACK!"
    • After obtaining the Four Sword and getting swept away, Emile promptly makes a Link's Awakening pun. Nobody reacts to it.
    • When Kaepora Gaebora appears before the guys, Tim begins to immediately read his lines quickly in his voice. However, because he is so quiet while doing so, he's practically drowned out by Jon, Stephen, and Emile talking about...morse code of all things.
    • Stephen realizing that Link can hop while powering up the sword. The others join in; Jon stops and then tells everyone to come over.
    • Emile (as Red Link) manages to pick up the Fire Rod... and Hilarity Ensues when he accidentally keeps setting every other Runaway Guy, including himself sometimes, on fire every two or so minutes.
      • As a result, Jon decides to vote Emile as a bother... only to vote for Tim instead by accident.note 
    • Emile's attempt to read all of Tingle's lines in one breath.
  • Episode 2: Cave of No Return
    • Since no one was particularly aggravating on the Cave of No Return, everyone just decided to mark some random person as a bother, then cancel that vote by mark that same person as being helpful... and, somehow, Jon earned 300 points out of it, Stephen won 100 points, Tim lost 100, then got them back, and Emile losing 500 points, ending with -400 points at one point.
  • Episode 3: Hyrule Castle
    • Stephen tries to help pull a large lever... and ends up pulling a bomb instead.
    • Stephen has a Call-Back to his BattleBlock Theater Let's Play, only this time with bombs rather than grenades. He is equally as helpful as he was back then, and easily earns Hero of Darkness with his destructive assistance.
    • Especially with the reveal that he killed the least enemies in the stage, which everyone at first interpreted as him not killing any!
  • Episode 4: The Coast
    • Stephen gets bombs again in this episode... And this is the level that introduces the Great Fairy, who upgrades whichever item someone is carrying. You can put two and two together.
    • The guys dying 5 times. Here's the actual death count:
      • Tim: 5
      • Emile: 5
      • Jon: 2
      • Stephen: 4
    • Stephen is the first death of the game, (accidentally?) blowing himself up talking to an NPC.
  • Episode 5: Village of the Blue Maiden (Part 1)
    • Just the fact this stage is in multiple parts tells you something.
    • The team spend FIVE minutes stuck on the second screen of the level due to an intricacy of multi-player.note 
    • After attempting to substitute a chicken for a Moon Pearl, Stephen sets off a Cucco attack. Emile saves them with a text box.
  • Episode 6: Village of the Blue Maiden (Part 2)
    • The Shadow Link fight at the end has Shadow Link, and the guys, being able to go into the Dark World. When you're in the Dark World, anyone in the regular world looks almost exactly like Shadow Link to you. They decide to have some people stay in the real world and others go into the Dark World... and promptly have trouble actually hitting Shadow Link, instead trying to attack the shadow of the person in the real world. Hilarity Ensues as they constantly lose track of Shadow Link.
      • At one point, Tim is the one in the overworld, and the others are attacking him, and Tim doesn't think to mention he's being slashed by three shadows. Tim goes into the portal into the Dark World, which the others see as Shadow Link returning to the overworld, and attempt to follow him... only to find he's not there. Meanwhile, Tim appears to be shocked at there seemingly being three Shadow Links.
    • Stephen doesn't even realise bombs were available in the stage until they hit a seeming dead-end. As such, he breaks his streak of winning the Hero of Darkness vote.
    • Despite Stephen getting a cucco to steal Force Gems from Jon at the last possible moment, Jon still manages to get first place through sheer amount of Force Gems. He cheerfully attributes this to the shovel.
  • Episode 7: Eastern Temple (Part 1)
    • Jon has difficulties picking up items when bombs are involved on two occasions. The first time, he drops a bomb and by mistake picks up Stephen, getting them both caught in the blast. The second time, while attempting to pick up a key, he accidentally picks up a bomb, resulting in a mild panic for everyone sans Tim.
    • One room the gang comes across has four switches that each Link must step on at the same time to allow them to proceed farther. After a brief pause, Emile realizes nothing is happening because he is not standing on the last switch. A little while later, they return to the room, and Tim makes the same mistake!
    • Stephen's, and later Tim's song and dance while waiting for Emile to light some torches.
  • Episode 8: Eastern Temple (Part 2)
    • Tim trying to run away from a giant bomb... as in out of the room... while the other guys more sensibly run downstairs. Needless to say, Tim gets blown up.
    • Emile's incredibly girly cry at the end of the episode, possibly from realizing that part of his GBA footage got corrupted.
  • Episode 9: Death Mountain Foothills
    • Anything involving the house.
      Jon: "Guys, this is so stupid."
    • At one point, Jon gets picked up by a large enemy that throws him at the spike barrier that prevents them from going to the next screen, causing him to glitch through it and constantly take damage. The guys' reactions to this sells it.
  • Episode 10: The Mountain Path
    • While waiting for Stephen, Emile angrily yells "Steven!", and points out to a confused Stephen that it's a reference. Stephen thinks he's referencing his wife, as he apparently gets that tone a lot from her.
  • Episode 11: Tower of Flames
    • Everyone constantly walking off, getting pushed, and shoving each other into the lava.
    • Stephen's insistence throughout the entire level that the lamp will eventually be useful, because why else would there be one available? It never is, leading to getting Hero of Darkness for the stage. His reaction is the funniest thing ever.
      • Jon is similarly peeved since he did all the work killing off the Dodongos as the only person with bombs and someone still voted for him as a bother.
        Jon: "Excuse me?! I had to fight the boss!"
      • Even better? It was Stephen.
  • Episode 12: The Field (Part 1)
    • Stephen's delayed realization of who Malon and Talon are.
    • The Guys get access to carrots that let them spontaneously create horses to ride. Utter chaos ensues, accompanied by Jon's Horse Song.
    • The Guys spend forever trying to get past a log they have to pull from a cave, after they impatiently don't pull it far enough, but Emile manages to glitch through, and they find that it's only possible to glitch through if someone pushes them from behind, but they need all four Guys past the log to get past the next area, making it a "Shaggy Dog" Story.
  • Episode 13: The Field (Part 2)
    • Stephen's reaction when the Guys enter a screen full of enemies while they all have shovels.
      Stephen: "OH GOD, WE DON'T HAVE WEAPON- oh wait we have swords."
    • Jon's reaction when using the Medallion blows up the house in the center of the area.
    • Tim's gas.
      Tim: "What?! Every single level, at the end of it, I fart."
      Stephen: "Yeah, and guess who's sitting next to Tim! Guess who knows about the end of every freaking level!"
      (Tim and Jon start cracking up)
      Stephen: "Oh my god, I can taste them. Like, with my tongue! The thing in my mouth! The thing under my nose! And it's SO HOT!"
      Tim: "I can't even laugh!"
      Stephen: "I'm hyperventilating and taking more in! It's like pure methane!"
      Emile: "He's beyond help. Well, Stephen..."
      Stephen: "Yes!"
      Emile: "I think we know why you're such an expert on explosives."
      Stephen: "No, Four Swords bombs got nothin' on this."
  • Episode 14: The Swamp
  • Episode 15: Infiltration of Hyrule Castle (Part 1)
    • Emile tries to make a reference when the Tingle Tower minigame sign says "no whining".
      Emile: "This is whin-" [enters screen with tons of enemies] "IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNG!!!!!!!!"
    • The guys have to sneak into Hyrule Castle again, this time at night with search lights a la Forsaken Fortress. They are captured sixteen times before they finally make it into the castle:
      • Emile: 3 ("Text box!! FREAKING TEXT BOX!!")
      • Jon: 3 (The first offender)
      • Tim: 6 (Breaks a pot after the guys have specifically mentioned that doing so gets you caught)
      • Stephen: 4 ("OH GOD I'M BREATHING NOOOO!!")
    • The realization that there's an easier path after their 6th capture.
    • Jon using getting thrown in jail to farm Force Gems.
    • Stephen's genius idea to deal with the search lights:
      Stephen: "STAB THE LIGHT!!"
    • On one attempt, Stephen gets caught because he lost track of who he was while swimming.
      Stephen: "I was watching it and was like: 'What idiot is that, he's stuck on a rock!', and it was me."
  • Episode 16: Infiltration of Hyrule Castle (Part 2)
    • After struggling with the searchlights so much in the previous episode, the group suddenly come across another searchlight section and almost immediately get caught. They have a massive freak out, thinking they'll be brought back to the start of the level, only to find out there is another jail cell.
      • At one point, whoever is in charge of this cell lets Jon hang onto a key.
    • The group's lament that the second jail cell doesn't have farmable Force Gems.
    • Not only do the group need lanterns to finish the level, but they're required for the boss. Stephen is ecstatic.
    • The Maiden's voice. The Guys claim that Link must always speak in a monotone voice while also trying to figure out exactly which of the Sailor Senshi the maiden most resembles.
      • Stephen then quickly starts talking about the importance of the lamp, insisting that Link get a tattoo of one on his forehead.
    • Clearly stressed after such a level, the guys are discussing who to vote Hero of Light/Darkness. They reach hysterics when all four of them get Hero of Darkness. Watching carefully reveals Tim and Jon voted for each other, and Emile and Stephen too.
      • Jon has a freak-out after nobody votes him for Hero of Light, angrily saying that he carried the group through the whole stage. It's made even funnier by the fact that Jon's total score ends up being higher than all three of the other Guys' scores COMBINED!
  • Episode 17: Lost Woods (Part 1)
    • The intro has Stephen describing the game as "largely cooperative." The Guys then start debating over what that means.
      Jon: "Is that before or after we try to murder each other mercilessly?"
      Stephen: "It's during!"
    • At one point, Emile and Stephen are trying to get a treasure chest containing Force Gems. Jon tries to help out Stephen by carrying Emile away, but Stephen thinks that he's the one that got picked up. In the confusion, it's Tim who gets the chest.
      Emile: "See, Jon? Nobody's very observant anymore!"
      Jon: "I NOTICED!"
  • Episode 18: Lost Woods (Part 2)
    • The group is faced with a Gohma, which can only be harmed by the bow. Jon is the only one with a bow, so he has to fight solo. Everyone is quick to notice how familiar this situation is.
    • The Guys get shovels.
      Stephen: "Man, we gonna be doing a whole lotta digging."
      Emile: "A HOLE lotta digging!"
      Jon: "Alright, we're throwing him in the pit."
    • Jon points out that the last enemy killed in a screen drops 100 Force Gems. Emile admits that he didn't know about this, which aggravates Jon due to the group already being on World 5, halfway through the game.
      • Stephen follows this up by pretending to notice that the Gamecube controller has 3 shoulder buttons. Emile is somewhat unsure if Stephen was being sarcastic.
    • At the end, the Guys see that the next level is a town. Their reactions say it all.
  • Episode 19: Kakariko Village (Part 1)
    • Jon is reading the Tear Jerker letter from a recently deceased woman to her grieving husband. While this is happening, Stephen can be seen hitting an annoying NPC with a rock.
    • The Guys' amusement with being able to pick up thieves:
    • The thief jail allows the guys to hit the imprisoned thieves with weapons. The Guys have some fun with this.
      • Emile also notes how much more effective this is than their prison.
    • When Tim is having trouble with a shovel puzzle, Emile suggests that everyone else pull out chairs and watch Tim dig.
    • Jon is having trouble reading some NPC dialogue, leading Emile to come over and read on Jon's screen.
      TEXT: "Wow. How did anyone see Game Boy screens back in the day?"
    • Jon gets increasingly annoyed when the other Guys (mostly Emile) repeatedly take the Force Gems he had earned for completing quests.
  • Episode 20: Kakariko Village (Part 2)
    • While Chuuga is talking to an NPC who says he can take his treasure, Jon and Stephen have already pilfered it.
    • Jon's reaction after losing 1000 Force Gems to the boss (which Tim is quick to steal). The sound of the counters can be heard for several seconds. Afterwards, Jon gets a Giant Bomb for beating the stage and immediately goes after Tim.
      Jon: "I'm a little angry."
  • Episode 22: Temple of Darkness (Part 2)
    • Emile manages to die 6 times and ends up with a score of -71 at the end of the episode.
    • The simple fact that the boss battle here takes a solid ten minutes due to the Guys' inability to deal with Tennis Boss strategies consistently.
  • Episode 23: The Desert of Doubt
    • A swinging underfoot platform presents the Guys with their most daunting task yet — walking slowly, and in unison.
      Tim: "Are you fucking kidding me?"
    • Jon's continuing status as the Only Sane Man as the Guys repeatedly ignore obvious hints from the game, culminating in:
      Jon: (singing) "You guys are bad at exploring, you guys are bad at exploring..."
    • Jon notes during the Lost Woods segment that the correct path is always where the wind is blowing from. The rest of the Guys react with mindblown awe that he noticed this. The best part is that an NPC that Jon talked to hinted at just that, but he either didn't pay attention and figured it out anyway, or was just screwing with the others.
    • Stephen makes a Call-Back.
      Jon: "Have you ever heard Emile be hyperbolic?"
      Emile: "The Hyperbolic Time Chamber?"
      Stephen: "Never. Now is that a sex organ?"
      [The others all laugh]
      Jon: "No, that's a vernacular."
    • Stephen comes to a realization on the results screen.
      Stephen: "I already know how this works: If I had bombs, I get voted down. And if I had lamp I get voted up. I don't even have to play the level anymore."
  • Episode 25: The Pyramid (Part 1)
    • At the end of the episode, Jon opens a chest with a giant bomb in it (technically two), and quickly runs to the screen transition point with Emile... while Stephen and Tim keep items they got from chests over their heads. This results in Jon and Emile dying while Stephen and Tim are unharmed, letting Stephen steal Force Gems from Jon and Emile... which Stephen admits is his reason for doing that. Emile and Jon get pretty angry at this.
      Jon: "We should move, we should mo—oh, Stephen, I fucking hate you right now..."
      Emile: "Stephen, Stephen, STEPHEN!!"
      Stephen: "Your money will be so great~!"
      Emile: "NO! You ass!"
      Jon: "You guys are fucking dicks!"
  • Episode 26: The Pyramid (Part 2)
    • The Guys singing the Maidens' dialogue at the end of the level.
    • When it comes time to vote, Jon sarcastically wonders who will receive Hero of Darkness, and Stephen reminds everyone that he had the lamp. However...
      Emile: "I didn't mean to vote for Jon. Shoot!"
      Jon: "Dude— are you fucking serious, Emile?? Are you fucking serious??"
      • Since Stephen also voted for Jon, Jon was the one who got Hero of Darkness, upsetting him even more.
        Jon: "You fucking assholes!"
  • Episode 27: Frozen Hyrule (Part 1)
    • The guys completely fail to acquire a Quake Medallion (and to notice the alcove it's hidden in) until after they've killed off all the enemies they were supposed to kill with it (which they did not by removing the rock between them and said enemies to hack-and-slash them, but by throwing bombs over the fence). Then Tim wastes said Quake Medallion on some Terrorpins on a frozen lake the guys can't reach yet.
    • Apparently, Stephen is the master of entering holes.
    • The guys all get Fire Rods, since they need them to melt the snow walls and frozen Force Gems. Of course, it's not long before they all begin setting each other on fire. Again.
    • Stephen beating Emile over the head with a tree.
  • Episode 28: Frozen Hyrule (Part 2)
  • Episode 30: Tower of Winds
  • Episode 31: Realm of the Heavens
    • The very first thing Stephen does in The Realm of the Heavens — walk left off the side of the cloud and lose half a heart.
    • While waiting for the others, the Guys start dropping bombs off the clouds for no reason. Emile then justifies this by claiming the bombs are falling on the Village of the Blue Maiden.
  • Episode 32: The Dark Cloud
    • This is a 2D stage where the Links have to ride on clouds to take them to the next area. The first cloud starts to move when Jon is only slightly on it, making him float in midair.
  • Episode 34: Finale
    • During the Escort Mission part of the stage, the Guys repeatedly and angrily note Zelda's status as The Load.
      • This turns into a theory that Zelda is trying to kill them by spawning enemies!
      • When the Guys reach the exit of the Tower, Zelda stops a few feet away. Everyone is in disbelief when they read her dialogue:
      Emile and Jon: "THE EXIT'S NEARBY!?"
    • Jon ends the final stage with over 3,000 more force gems than anyone else.
      Jon: *awkwardly* "Good game, guys?"
      Everyone Else: *sarcastic laughter*
      Emile: "Let's get him. Let's get him. Let's... make him eat American food or something."
  • Shadow Battle
    • After Jon spends most of the game pointing out how the others Failed a Spot Check, in this video it's Tim who's the only one to notice a Giant Bomb has appeared and win by default when he's the only one who hides.
    • Emile constantly falling through the colour-coded tiles on the sky level, which nobody else has much difficulty with.
    • One match comes down to Jon and Stephen. Stephen mostly runs away from Jon, then falls down a hole as Jon waits on a ladder to stab him... and somehow Stephen wins when they collide.
  • Tetra's Trackers
    • Emile repeatedly points out how weird it is to have voice acting and free jumping in a Zelda game... making it very clear that this was recorded before Breath of the Wild.

    Rayman Legends 
  • Since Emile is Player 1, he gets to be the one using the extra gamepad control feature...and let's just say he's not very good at it.
  • In the beginning of the Dungeon Chase level in episode 3, Emile assumes the role of Murfy once again, and gets Jon and Tom killed on the first platform.
  • After a wild Kung Foot match in episode 6, Tom does something that the Guys take quick notice on...
    Jon: "He's taking off his shirt!"
    Tim: "Are you kidding me? If only you could see this!"
    Jon: "Goodnight everybody!"
  • The guys end up spending the first two minutes of episode 7 having trouble with swapping out characters.
  • Jon's reaction to standing just outside of a spotlight's range in episode 11: "Ah, look at me, I'm being stealthy, look at me!"
  • In Episode 13, the level "There's Always a Bigger Fish" prompts this comment form Emile:
    Emile: "There's always a bigger fish... in bed. [...] Maybe that's my fetish?"
    Jon: "Your fetish is having fish in bed?"
    Tom Fawkes: "Hey honey I'm ready, here's the tuna!"
    Tim: [Mad laughter]
  • In Episode 16, the Guys do "Shields Up... and Down - Invaded". Their first attempt has all four of them jump right into the first enemy and die, at the same time.
    • In another attempt, an enemy that is supposed to be used as a platform fails to spawn in until they actually cross the gap the enemy is needed to cross. Then they die. The exchange is even played in slow motion.
  • At one attempt at the boss in "A Cloud of Darkness!" in episode 20, Tom is the only one left alive. He jumps off the wall to reach and revive the others, and although he manages to revive them, he jumps right into a hole in the middle of the arena, in the process causing the other guys to respawn in the hole and die again instantly.
  • After defeating the final boss, Emile is falling off the bottom of the stage, meaning the central platform raises the others up while he dies, causing the others to joke that they're ascending to heaven while he's stuck in hell. A smack from the others sends Tim flying off the platform, reviving Emile mid fall just in time for them both to die again.
  • Emile praising guest Tom... and goes a bit too far.
    Emile: "You were very good, I think you were very funny, I think you were great at the game and you helped us get through a lot of stuff..."
    Tom: "Oh go on."
    Emile: "And your cock is enormous..."
    Jon: "WOW. WOW. Not where I thought he'd go with that."
    Tom: "Ladies, I am single!"
  • When messing around with the credits, the Guys manage to create "Age Rating Man: Shannon Kok".
  • When the guys return to Toad Story (which they got all the Teensies in the first time) to do the Invasion levels, Emile says "we did this stage so perfect before, and we're not gonna mess it up at all now". Right after he says this, he jumps into the wrong painting.
  • Episode 22 had some funny moments thanks to a few glitches. For instance, on the guys' first attempt at "What the Duck? - Invaded", Dark Rayman spawns right where they're standing instead of above them, killing them instantly. On their second attempt, he doesn't spawn at all.
  • When the guys die the first time in "Lucha Libre Get Away - Invaded", the screen camera suddenly swerves ahead of them before going back towards the beginning of the stage.
  • Near the end of the finale, Tom asks the other guys their final thoughts on the game.

    Super Metroid 
  • The discussion about Metroid 2 Return Of Samus is Hilarious in Hindsight given this was obviously recorded well before the release of Another Metroid 2 Remake and Metroid: Samus Returns.
  • Emile wishes that Ridley had Slowbeef's voice. So they do an impression of it, which ends up turning into an impression of Emile himself.
  • Jon and Tim have an inverted This Is Gonna Suck moment when they realize just how much fun the project's going to be after witnessing Emile almost fail to escape Ceres Station in time.
  • Episode 1 ends with possibly the weirdest outtro yet (for context, it's about a Map Station):
    Emile: "I'm not supposed to stand on it, I'm supposed to have sex with it."
    Jon: "With your arm?"
    [Video Ends]
  • In Episode 2, they discuss how Samus cleans her suit. Tim suggests that she just goes through a car wash, which makes the other guys laugh.
  • Emile reaches the point in the game where he got stuck all those years ago, which involved him completely failing to notice a Morph Ball tunnel near the start of Crateria until he gave up. All this at the ripe young age of...17. And it still takes him a few passes at age 26.
  • Near the start of Episode 3, as Emile advances to another area in the game he'd previously never gotten to before, Jon states that his 17-year-old self must be glad to finally have closure now. Emile then replies that he thought Jon was originally going to say he "finally has clothes" and then admits when he was 17 he often did sit around his computer room naked, to which Jon sarcastically thanks Emile for telling him that.
  • After defeating Spore Spawn in Episode 4, Emile has an... interesting thought.
    Emile: "I wonder if there's ever been a murderer that, like, turned his victims into stepladders."
  • In Episode 8, Emile tries various stuff on one of the floor enemies Jon draws his attention to before realising that it's actually a fake to cover a hole in the floor. This includes shooting it, so when Emile drops down through it he finds he has already opened up the powerup below, and claims that he found a speedrunning tactic. The Guys then joke about how Emile has now become the source of speedrunning wisdom, during which he struggles to leave the room using the Hi-Jump.
  • At the start of the episode Jon and Tim have a heated discussion as to where Emile should go next, and he compared it to parents discussing their kid's academic future.
  • Emile's idea for an intro in episode 10:
    Emile: (singing along to the fanfare) "Y cant Metroid craaaaaawl?"
    Jon: "Oh, good Lord..."
  • Emile shares his thoughts on the Shinespark:
    Emile: "That's gotta feel so cool, it's like... having a rocket shoved up your ass without the anal pain."
    Jon: "...Okay."
  • The entire "Lovesac!" conversation in episode 11.
  • Emile discovering how to get into Maridia by accident is both this and awesome.
    Jon: "Keep this room in mind for later."
    Emile: "Got it, flood the chamber!" [Drops Power Bomb]
    • When the chamber is flooded, Tim jokes about the water physics by speaking in slow motion.
    Tim: "Itttttttsssss liiiiiiiiiiikkkkkke wheeeeen yooooooou plaaaaaaaaay the coooooooommmmeeeentarrrrryyy aaaaaaat twenty-five perceeent speeeeeeeeed."
  • Emile mentions a cartoon called "The Brothers Flub," and how you should never, at all costs, watch the intro. Cue lots of people in the comments doing just that, and immediately regretting it....
  • Episode 14: Emile pulls off yet another pretty impressive feat using the newly-acquired Grappling Beam to grapple onto a moving Ripper II while doing a running jump in order to reach a Missile Pack...then immediately afterward, forgets how to use the beam the easy way. As Jon mocks him for it...
    Jon: "You pulled off this phenomenal flying-jump Grappling Hook, and the standing-still Grappling Hook is getting you."
    Emile: "Says the man who can't make one-block jumps in Mario, but can beat Kaizo."
    Tim: "Whoa..."
    Jon: " that a challenge? Do you want to go through Kaizo? Is that what you're saying?"
    Emile: "You know, with how I'm doing in 2D games, maybe I don't need save states!"
    • Also from Episode 14, a discussion of cereal causes Emile to launch into a passionate rant about Kix. Jon points out that Emile sounds like he was hurt by the cereal as a child.
      Jon: "Where did the cereal touch you as a child, Emile? Jesus!"
      Emile: "It touched my insides! Literally!"
      Jon: "Ewww…"
  • In episode 16, a Seinfeldian Conversation about world domination leads to Emile telling a story about how he used to think Mother Teresa had taken over the world.
  • The utter struggle to get the reserve tank in episode 18.
  • Episode 19 brings us "Brain Care", originally a continuation of their "President Mother Brain" jokes from earlier in the series, but which Emile and Tim find to be Inherently Funny Words and mindlessly repeat for a while, to Jon's dismay.
  • During a conversation in Episode 19, Jon argues that there's a lot of things Emile would like more if he had more patience. When asked for an example, the first one he gives is Paper Mario: Sticker Star. That wasn't a good idea. Emile goes on an uncharacteristically-angry rant about the game and says it's actually the game he dislikes the most out of any game he's played. Jon is pretty taken aback by this.
    Jon: "That got him a little more than I thought it would. Wow."
  • The story about the French restaurant in Episode 19. TL;DR: Emile and friends went to a French restaurant one time at PAX East, but forgot French Cuisine Is Haughty and showed up criminally underdressed. Emile surmises he was not the first customer to show up like that, owing to the restaurant being highly-rated and near where PAX East is held.
  • Episode 20: Buzzsaw Man Pants.
  • Episode 21 opens on Emile wondering just what it was he found so funny the previous episode:
  • In episode 23, Emile makes a reference to Macduff's backstory in Macbeth which goes totally over Jon's head. When Emile explains the reference, Jon admits he thought that Emile was referencing Ducktales at first.
    Jon: "Like, what the fuck happened in Ducktales? Did I miss an episode?"
    [Later, to the tune of the Ducktales theme song] "Life is like a hurricane: c-sections, dead wives!"
  • Episode 26: While Emile fights the Space Pirates guarding Ridley's lair, Tim sings along to the background music with "I Was Watching Television", which Emile finds amusing because the room they are in at the time is full of what look like TV sets hanging from the ceiling. This causes Emile to start Corpsing, in a similar vein to "Buzzsaw Man Pants".
    • Emile says that by the end of the episode, Tim's ad-libbed lyrics will send them all into hysterics. Lo and behold, Jon eventually caves when Tim repeats the "I was watching television" line.
    • Tim's singing eventually throws off Emile so badly that he immediately forgets which way to go upon receiving his last power bomb upgrade. Jon is dumbfounded.
  • In Episode 27, just after achieving 100% Completion, Emile fails a spot check one last time for good measure by forgetting which door leads to Tourian despite Jon pointing it out not two minutes ago.
  • And, not to be outdone, after doing a nearly flawless run through Tourian, Emile dies on the escape sequence after making it to his ship with seconds to spare because instead of going into his ship, he accidentally goes into his Morph Ball. The screams of agony are delicious.
    Emile: "I PRESSED DOWN!"

    The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes 
  • Emile and Tim constantly misunderstanding when Jon is trying to explain to them how to solve a puzzle.
  • Having trouble using the totem mechanic, especially when Tim is on the bottom.
  • Tim just generally not paying attention.

Episode 1: Finale

  • The episode's title is worthy of a laugh, as it is called "Finale" (see below for context). This is lampshaded in the comments.
    Cole Clifford: This LP is over already? Oh well. See you next time!
  • Not even five seconds into the video, and Emile already has a bad pun lined up.
    Emile: "...Eh, I'd make a Zelda pun, but I'm not gonna tri and force it."
  • Moments after starting the game, the guys begin lampshading how Jon had previously done an LP of Tri-Force Heroes with Tom and Josh, even though Jon himself isn't a big fan of it. Not to mention, Jon had said in that very LP that he would be doing the game again with TRG.
  • Once the guys start the game, they quickly realize that Emile had forgotten to restart his progress to go back to the beginning of the game.
    Emile: "Crap, I haven't restarted..."
    Jon: "You IDIOT!"
    Tim: "Oh no!"
    Emile: (laughing) "I thought I did it!"
    Jon: "You...We waited forever! You waited forever on us, and you weren't even ready yourself!"
    • Later on, Jon chooses to import his save data, which he thinks is data from the demo. However, he quickly discovers that it's actually his completed game file (hence the title of the episode). Jon now has to reset his game and replay the last 15 minutes, delaying the gameplay for much longer than Emile did.
  • Once they finally start playing, Jon and Emile begin to try to progress forward with the game in order to reunite with each other. Tim on the other hand, is more intent on scaring random birds in the hub world.
  • While Emile begins narrating Sir Combsly’s dialogue, Tim (and to a lesser extent, Jon) begins making random noises and sound effects as soon as Emile finishes speaking.
  • When the guys are talking to Sir Combsly and are about to name their characters, Emile's 3DS shows that the default name for his character was going to be MasaeAnela.
    Emile: "Pfffffffffffftttt…"
    Tim: "Uh oh. That was..."
    Jon: "...interesting..."
    Emile: "Okay, I guess I..."
    Jon: "Well, at least I know whose 3DS that is now."

Episode 2: Jelly Fresh

  • Tim begins the episode by running around in circles and getting dizzy.
  • Giving the "Legendary Hero" (old-school Link) outside the castle the voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger, and then Cartman.
  • Jon, when getting the consolation prize from the treasure game:
    Jon: "I'VE GOT A BAG! Of disappointment!"
  • Emile continually sprinting around town and running into things.
  • Jon showing off an easter egg.
    Jon: "Before we warp into space, let's show off some things. Number one: run into a wall...randomly...a ball will drop."
  • Tim and Emile are absolutely terrible at handling the totem mechanics at first.
    Jon: "Don't walk off the stage, that will kill us all!"
  • Dying on the second stage right after Jon collects a heart.
  • Emile can't figure out the camera and ends up taking a picture of the result screen.

Episode 3: Smells Like Team Spirit

  • Jon's saltiness about how bad the reward for doing all the challenges is.
  • The introduction of the bomb item.
    Emile: "Looks like one of us is going to be on bomb duty, thank goodness there's not a purple Link here!"
    Jon: "You say that but still, you can damage each other with the bombs, veeeery careful."
    Emile: "Well, I guess that means I should be on bomb duty. I'm the most careful out of all of us, right!"
    Jon: "Oh boy, I'm gonna go grab that then before you do in that case."
  • "That arrow was coming out of my crotch."
  • Emile describes a poster advertisement he saw with very bad word choices:
    Emile: "This fall, Superman is coming in Supergirl."
  • Jon has a lot of trouble trying to guide Emile and Tim.
    Jon: "Alright shoot that, then walk on my head-" *Tim throws Emile to the other side* "...that's not walk on my head."
    • And then the second time they attempt it, Jon accidentally throws them in the water instead of onto the other platform. Tim then throws Emile about 3 or 4 more times before finally getting it.
    Tim: "Oh, I walk on your head!"
    Jon: *after they finally succeed* "Guys we did it, we solved the third puzzle in the game!" *jumps in the river and swims off* "I'm leaving. I'm going over here. This is my new home now."
    Emile: "We all love each other, don't we guys?"
    Jon: "I already have a headache."
  • Jon confuses Buzz Blobs with Like-Likes.

Episode 7: The Tri-Duo

  • The confusion Tim has at the start of the episode over how many Friendly Tokens are necessary to make the Tri Suit, leading to him being the only one who does not have it when they start the level.
  • Jon swearing is censored by a clip of Mario screaming.

Episode 12: Bitter Cold

  • Snowball Ravine gets off to a great start...
    Jon: "Oooo, I just realized what stage this is, you're gonna wanna move."
    Emile: *moves...directly into the path of the oncoming snowball* "AAAAH!"
  • Soon after...
    Jon: "This is why I have trust issues."
    Emile: *giggling* "I thought you said "That's why I have trusty shoes" for a second-"
    Jon: *defeatedly* "Oh my god, Emile."
  • Jon gets accidentally thrown off a ledge almost twice in a row. And then when Emile causes him to lose the jellyfish by falling on his head, Jon throws him into a pit intentionally.
  • Jon when the boss appears: "SPOOKY MONSTER MAN!"

Episode 20: The Grand Ballroom

  • The guys spend 3 full minutes at the beginning of the video hitting a ball in the lobby, trying to see how high they could get the numbers.

    Wii Party U 

Highway Rollers

Episode 1
  • The intro starts off with an Incredibly Lame Pun.
  • Emile says that the very first thing he saw when he started this game up for the first time was a Miiverse post saying "What the fuck is this shit Nintendo, don't you know how to make good games like Metroid anymore?".
  • Jon jokes that, since the first game has them rolling multiple dice at once, they'll be able to directly compare how bad their luck is.
  • They keep getting distracted by recognizing the Miis in the background.
  • One of the minigames has them in a swimming race, and in the second section they're basically doing somersaults through the water. Emile asks if this is really a swimming move, and Jon firmly assures him that it is not. Then the next section has them spinning through the water.
    Emile: "Is this a swimming move?"
    Jon: "Not really! It is a dumb thing!"

Episode 2

  • "Apathy!" note 
    • "Enthusiasm shall win the day over apathy. They are two sides of the same coin, one cannot exist without the other..." note 
  • Emile's announcer voice from the last Wii Party game makes its glorious return.
  • The first round where the last place player (Tim, in this case) gets to pick the minigame, the choices are knitting, R/C cars, and unicycling on a cliff. Jon voices his disappointment when Tim picks knitting, saying that the unicycle cliff game looked "badass".

Episode 3

  • Jon's first roll of the episode and Emile zooms in on the dice as a die falls off of another one, going from six to a one. Jon didn't take it well.
    • For added amusement, the die falling on one was actually a blessing, since Jon landed on a positive event space, whereas if he had gotten a 6 on that die, he would have landed on a negative event.
  • Emile blabbers about something involving Robocop and helicopters with boobs...
    Jon: "What is with you and giving helicopters boobs? It's very concerning."
    Emile: *frantically thinking of a comeback* "Uhh, your fetishes are just as weird!" *starts reading the minigame description to get out of the conversation*
    Tim: "Ummmm..."
    Jon: "Do tell me, Emile; what are my fetishes?"
    Emile: *awkwardly* "Umm...they're Oddish?"

Gamepad Island

Part 1
  • Jon wins two balance minigames in a row where both Emile and Tim fall off at almost the same time, Emile a frame before Tim. For the first one, they replay it in slow motion. Hearing Emile and Tim scream at the same time and then Jon yelling "UNICYCLE CHAMPION!" slowed down is hilarious.

Part 2

  • Jon wastes time trying to choose correct path in a cave, as he continues to choose the wrong one, up until only the correct choice is left. Emile then comes up to the cave next, and Jon guesses that he'll choose the right path on the first try. Sure enough...

Mii Fashion Plaza

Episode 1

Episode 2

  • Jon visits the "One Stop Shop", where you can choose any piece of clothing. While Jon looks his choices, Emile mentions that he has an idea of what Jon should do. Jon says that he thinks he knows what Emile means, and goes for the Mario Hat... much to the latter's confusion. Emile then points out that he should have gotten the Ninja Pants instead, since he had the other 3 parts of the set. Jon spends the next few minutes kicking himself for his mistake.
    Jon: "MOTHER--"
  • In a minigame where Jon has to tilt a platform with the other three on to tip them off, Emile points out that Jon keeps appearing as a laughing Evil Genius on screens in the background, which Tim compares to The Architect. Jon ends up being more joyfully enthusiastic about this than the fact that he won the minigame.
    Jon: "That RULES!"

Episode 3

The Balldozer

  • During the first minigame of this mode, No Goals Barred, Jon gets all of his green soccer balls into the goals, but is left confused as to why the game didn't register him winning when Emile gets all his soccer balls in and it registers HIM winning... Until he notices one last green soccer ball hiding behind a post and blending in with the grass.
  • Starting in Round 3, the bonus ring comes into play. When Jon tries to get the bonus ring, one ball drops onto the hoop of the ring, and rolls right off it.

Lost and Found Square

  • In the first round, Jon only manages to find Emile with thirty seconds left on the clockTo put this in perspective...  while Tim cannot find Emile at all. Why? Emile, when relaying clues to his location, manages to mistake a plane for a hammer! Jon's reaction, in which he points out that the "hammer" had a propeller and wings, was precious. To rub salt in the wound, this mistake directly torpedoed any chance of Emile or Tim winning the minigame, with Emile himself ending up in dead last.
    • Emile also screws himself over out of points by referring to the green train he's nearby as yellow. While it does have distinct yellow metal, the body of the train itself is green, prompting Jon and Tim to look everywhere but where Emile is trying to find a non-existent yellow train.

Sketchy Situation

  • The Guys trying to vocalize the wild, flailing animations that occur whenever a character draws in this minigame.
  • Tim asks if he could retract the incorrect answer he clicked on in the second round, because he clicked on it by accident. It turns out that he can't, which leads to him being the entire minigame's only loser. Everyone else got first place.

Do U Know Mii?

  • Emile rating Jon as "not independent at all" during the first game (he does try to justify it, but this just makes it clear that Emile and Jon had wildly different interpretations of the questionnote ), and Jon repeatedly ribbing him about it for the entire rest of the video.
    Emile: "I haven't cried this hard since the Metropolitan Mutant of Ark!"
    • Emile went all the way to the left on his vote, mind you, he did not think Jon had any sort of independence.
    Emile: "Okay, independent as far as what?"
    Jon: "...REALITY!"
    • Jon eventually got his revenge during the second round. Emile's question: How sore a loser are you? The vote was almost unanimous, as Jon and Tim go all the way to the right to "Total Sore Loser".
    • Emile trying to make up for it by complimenting Jon.
    Emile: You are a very talented person.
    Jon: "Ha! Now you're just gonna be playing "suck up" for the rest of the video."
    Tim: "You must reclaim your honor."
    Emile: "I was actually telling you earlier, like, just how, like, awesome your whole setup that you put together is..."
    Jon: "Yeah! I did that by MYSELF, motherfucker!"
    • If you listen closely, you can hear Tim's reasoning for his option of saying Jon has a lot of independence? Why, he watched PBG Hardcore, where he was featured. How is this funny? Well, if you've seen both seasons Jon was featured, you'd know that both times, he ended up dying due to his tendency to go off alone and be independent; between taking fall damage in a dark area where nobody else was with him in Terraria 2, and dying to a boulder trap nobody else was there to spot for him in Terraria 3. He wasn't just independent, it's what killed him both times!

Water Runners

Feed Mii

  • At the end of Jon's round as the cashier, Emile and Tim' miis eat their ice cream first. Jon points this out and Emile retorts he's a grown up and he waited 18 years of school and parenting to eat ice cream for breakfast.
  • On the last round when Emile is the cashier, he misses a few things on Jon's order. And in perhaps the most TRG sentence ever formed, Jon tells Emile "You forgot my small fries to go with my large fries." What sells it is Emile's reaction; he busts out laughing and wheezing from that line, and spends the next while in tears and barely able to speak from laughing so hard.
    Emile: (still laughing) "The sad thing... If I worked in a retail shop, you would totally do that!"

Dance With Mii

Animal Matchup

  • Jon randomly delivers commentary in an Eastern European-accented monotone ("Where is dog. Where is peeg.") which keeps making Emile laugh.
  • Jon also commentates on Tim and Emile doing badly at the 'assemble robots' minigame by scatting his words to a 'beep boop boop beep' robotic beat that goes with the minigame music.

Bridge Burners

  • Being that this is a cooperative mode, you can already tell where this mode will go. You don't even need to take our word for it. The game even admits that it's not easy working as a team.
    Emile: "Oh boy, do we know that?"
  • For one of the minigames, Twisted Flight, Tim and Jon both get 50 yards, while Emile gets 49, just barely missing out on the target score of 150 yards.
  • On their first attempt, they fail at the second minigame, Moonbase Escape. Their second attempt goes far smoother, and then...
    Emile: "Last stage and we have two chances."
    Jon: "Here's hoping. The final stage."
    Emile: "Alright, what is the final boss of Wii Party U."
    Jon: "It's gonna be the one we messed up."
    The last wall falls, revealing the game to be Moonbase Escape
    Emile: "OH!" (Starts laughing)
    Jon: "Wow. I was joking. Really? I was joking."

Spot the Sneak

  • Emile and Jon talking about fonts. After Jon has suggested that Arial is used a lot because it is alphabetically near the start of a list of fonts:
    Emile: "Well somebody needs to make a really good font and call it AAAAAAAAAAAA."
    Jon: "Uh huh. My favorite font: UGH."

Minigame Free Play

  • Emile starts going through the list of minigames that haven't played starting on Twisted Flight, a minigame they've already played twice. He wrote it down as Twisted Fight, so he thought it was a fighting type game they hadn't seen yet.
  • Emile tries to play the games in the order of his list, resulting in him searching the games for the next one on his list, while Jon just wants to play one that looks like Pac-man, while Emile ignores it. Turns out the one Jon wants to play actually is the next game on the list, which Jon wastes no time pointing out.
  • Catch a Wave, the 1-vs-3 minigame where one player has to use their voice to control a sound wave "platform" and bump the other players into an electrical field. Emile's attempt can best be described as a combination of loud screaming, hooting, grunting, singing, and other nonsensical babble.
    Tim: Somebody please take that and set it to that scene from Liar Liar!

Freeplay Balloon Boppers

  • The guys' excitement when the AI finally starts playing the game instead of just running around randomly.
    Tim: "He fought back!"

    Pokémon Snap 
  • General:
    • Complaining about how Oak's criteria for picture makes no sense, and being dumbfounded when a picture does a lot better or worse than they thought it would.
    • Whenever Oak seems to enjoy a picture of a Pokémon fainted or being attacked. "It's dead! Well done!"
  • Episode 2: Explosive Fruit
    • In a MAJOR Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny! moment, Tim hatches a Moltres... and proceeds to IGNORE IT and take pictures of Charmander until Jon and Emile start yelling at him to take a picture of the legendary Pokémon.
  • Episode 3: Going Down the River
    • One of the Pictures taken is Magmar behind an evolving Charmander, making it look like the Magmar is being summoned from Hell.
    • Tim accidentally submits only 2 pictures from the beach course.
  • Episode 4: Raise the Grade
    • Another Magmar picture, this time of a "Mating Ritual" as Emile put it.
    • Tim took 31 pictures of Charmander and runs out of film almost immediately after.
  • Episode 5: Flushin' em Out
    • Jon proceeds to reveal the reason he and Reese got Bagel. They saw how well behaved Kirby was and decided to get a cat. They ended up with Bagel. As Jon put it... "Whoops".
  • Episode 8: Give Me a Sign
    • Tim unmasks one of the Bulbasaurs in the Cave stage as actually being a Ditto for the first time, only to then ignore it and start throwing Pester Balls at the other Bulbasaurs.
    • Jon and Emile arguing over Emile calling the blanket he's wearing a "Jedi cloak", and the improbabilities of using it as a weapon.
      Emile: "Well, Jedi craft their own weapons, and maybe my weapon is just..."
      Jon: "Your weapon is a blanket?"
  • Episode 9: We Are the Music Makers
    • Tim being completely obtuse to the hints from Jon and Emile after getting the Vileplume.
  • Episode 10: The Mysteries of Life
    • Emile and Jon notice that Tim saved Electabuzz from getting blown up by Electrode, and then ran into it with the vehicle. Emile then proceeds to go on a tangent about how he wonders if anyone's ever been saved by getting hit by a car, including if they got hit by a car while on their way to something they thought was a family gathering but was actually a murder ambush. Jon is kind of dumbfounded.
      • It then dissolves into a conversation about Emile's other life questions, including such gems as "Is holding the door open for someone at the gym stealing burnt calories from them?" and "If you ate nothing but laxatives for a day and then ate corn, would the corn be good enough to eat afterwards?"
      Emile: "Could you, like, swallow a string long enough that you could like, floss... yourself?"
      Jon: (clearly disgusted) "NO!"
      (Tim and Emile start laughing)
      Jon: "Oh my god... are you just the Darwin Award personified right now or what?"
      Emile: "I don't know what that is."
      Jon: (defeated sigh)

    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 
  • Running Gags:
  • This scene from the first episode.
    Jon: "Now keep in mind, we're gonna do what we usually do when we guide someone through a single-player game they've never played before."
    Tim: "Laugh at them!"
  • Emile accidentally gives Zelda a really deep, raspy voice, described as a "chain smoker" voice. Doubly hilarious considering Stephen cracked the same joke years ago.
    • Adding to the hilarity is that, according to Jon in a stream, they had no idea that Stephen and Mal did the same joke!
  • Joking that they tricked Emile into playing a randomizer instead of the real game.
  • Putting $5 in a chest is apparently a coming-of-age ceremony in this universe.
  • Jon-as-chain-smoker-Zelda constantly pestering Emile/Link for lottery tickets and cigarettes whenever he goes back to the Sanctuary.
  • In episode 6, Emile dies after running into a cactus, and Jon (of all people) jokes about it being 'Pokey's Revenge'.
  • In Episode 7, while Jon and Emile are commenting on the Lanmola fight, Tim quotes Anakin's sand monologue.
  • Emile somehow not noticing that he was taking damage from the rocks that spawn whenever a Lanmolas would appear until Jon finally brought it up.
    • Even better? It turns out that this is what caused him to stop playing the game, because he kept dying to them by never noticing the rocks hurting him even back when he played the game 11 years prior.
  • In episode 8, Emile tells the story of why he never played Banjo-Kazooie or the sequel as a kid:
    • He couldn't find the molehill with the tutorial because he was pressing the wrong button to talk.
    • He thought Grunty's Lair had to be the final boss area because it was too scary-looking and spend hours running around looking for the entrance to the first world.
    • When he hit "save and quit" he got the cutscene of Grunty winning and thought it meant he had automatically lost the game and was so mad he ended up just returning it.
    • When Banjo-Tooie came out and his friends urged him to play it, he mistakenly read the box as saying "Tooty" and though they had replaced Kazooie with her and was so mad he didn't even pick it up.
  • By episode 8, Emile has officially declared he's performing a bee percent run, which involves keeping a bee in his first bottle from start to to finish.
  • Emile making it through the entire Tower of Hera without getting the Moon Pearl.
  • In episode 15, Emile tries to tell a story about the time he insulted a friend's taste in music, but he sees a Piece of Heart, freaks out, and ends up saying that he made his friend "voluptuous."
    • Leading to this magnificent conversation:
    Jon: "Wait, how did you make your friend voluptuous? Did you give them like..."
    Emile: "Puberty?"
    Jon: "Whoa! I was going to say surgery, but sure. Tell me, Emile, how did you force puberty on someone?"
    Emile: "I-I gave it to them for their birthday."
    Jon: "Ah, I see. When did you do this?"
    Emile: "Um, when I was less than 18, hopefully."
    Jon: "Good answer, good answer. Very legal sounding answer."
    Emile: "Well, we are in the Dark World, so I have to blend in."
    Jon: "No! Don't! Stop!"
    • The episode ends with Emile paying Ukiki 10 Rupees to follow him to the Palace of Darkness entrance... but barely being unable to afford the 100 Rupees needed to actually open it. Episode 16 opens with Jon and Tim trying to figure out where he should go to money grind, and their horrified realization that gambling really is his best option. This happens when he goes to do so.
    Jon: "You need 110, if you get the 50, you got it."
    [Emile immediately gets the 50]
    Jon: "I hate you so much."
  • Episode 18 starts with Emile being attacked by Kodongos and their fire.
    Emile: "Why does everything want to be inside me?"
    Jon: "Fangirls, you're welcome."
  • In episode 19, Emile misinterprets the hint to obtain the flute (it was buried with some flower seeds, meaning that in the light world, you had to use the shovel on flower tiles), instead thinking that it was buried next to a flower tile.
    • Jon and Tim were discussing prior how much of the field Emile was going dig up.
    Jon: "Well, I can't tell if this was more than I thought you would be digging or less than I thought you would be digging."
  • Episode 20 starts off on a high note: more gambling! Emile plays the Chest Minigame in the Light World Lost Woods again... and immediately gets the 300 Rupees. Jon, as promised, crunches his chips.
    Jon: (muffled) "Have fun in post!"
    • Emile's Luck in general with the gambling minigame, exiting the bandit town gambling game with not only the piece of heart, but a full money pouch in only four tries.
    • It is followed up by Emile and Jon discussing their "taboo games" (Paper Mario: Sticker Star for Emile, Yoshi's New Island for Jon) before devolving into reading 0/10 user scores for Sticker Star, including one where the reviewer gave a nine paragraph response. This gets even funnier when you remember that Emile was once similarly prompted to start writing an academic dissertation— still in-progress to this day— about why he disliked Sticker Star.
    • They drag in Tim, who finally decides for him, it is Mario Kart 64.
    • Emile offers to show up on Jon's streams and be a cohost if Sticker Star ever won the cookie poll. Jon, knowing his audience, immediately tries to give Emile an out, to no avail.
  • Emile takes Blind's maiden disguise and runs with it, engaging in Epileptic Trees that Blind was actually a little girl leading a vicious band of thieves and only looks like a red devil thing because the Dark World is a Fisher Kingdom.
  • From Episode 26, Emile tries almost every item on the Mad Batter's altar, as well as pushing and pulling on it, before finally trying the correct item, Magic Powder:
    Jon: "You tried the Boomerang! On soup!"
    Emile: "I guess that makes it the Souperang."
    Jon: *sighs*
  • Episode 33: Chugga recounts asking his mom what a circle jerk was after hearing the term passed around in school. His mom defeatedly asked him if he really needed to know. When he took the hint and assumed he'd be better off just looking it up online, his mom quickly let out a Big "NO!" and explained it to him.
    Jon: "That is the most mom reaction."
  • Episode 34: Chugga reveals he's afraid of Wallmasters when one drops onto Link and he has a Screams Like a Little Girl reaction. He spends the rest of the episode attacking every one that appears in a panic.
  • Episode 42: Emile forgetting for a solid minute or two to use the Hookshot to pull himself across a gap.
  • Episode 44 shows the (hilarious) downside of recording months beforehand. Emile makes a comment that by the time the video comes out they'll be playing Kingdom Hearts III. Tim responds "I'll be playing Metroid Prime 4". Prime 4 infamously got delayed and the comments had a field day with that.

  • Running gags:
    • Almost immediately, Jon singles out a single red pikmin, whom he names 'Esteban'. Emile has seemingly not yet picked up on the importance of this name.
      • Later on, he adds other recurring names to this, such as the highly uncooperative Derek (read: any single pikmin whose artificial incompetence makes them stand out). There's either a lot of Dereks, or Derek keeps changing teams.
      • Emile reveals in episode 11 that he picked up on Esteban immediately, but he wanted to let the joke run its course.
    • For once, Jon is subject to being the clueless player, while Tim and Emile are the ones trying to help him and snark at his mistakes. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Any time the game does things that it clearly shouldn't be doing, whether it's bizarre enemy behavior or strange glitches that make no sense. It is the King of Bugs playing, after all...
  • Episode 1: Throw People at Walls
    • Unsurprisingly, the comments section for episode 1 is filled with jokes and references to Steve the red Pikmin.
    • Jon reads Olimar's dialogue in a voice reminiscent of a different captain.
  • Episode 3: Over the Garden Wall
    • At the beginning of the episode, Jon is going back and forth between the Impact Site and the Forest of Hope on the Map Screen, making the S.S. Dolphin look like it's taking Olimar on the ride of his life.
      Jon-as-Olimar: "Captain's log, Wednesday. I don't think I have the steering wheel yet. I'm still trying to figure out how this thing works. The Pikmin seem to be putting up with me driving everywhere. Hopefully they don't notice that I am not drunk."
      • Emile later admits Jon had encountered his favorite thing to do in Pikmin on the map screen.
    • Jon ends up tossing a pikmin OVER a wall. MORE THAN ONCE.
  • Episode 4: Snagret Surprise
    • Jon leaves his first Pikmin behind to be eaten by predators. Said Pikmin is named Mitch. With each subsequent time he leaves Pikmin behind, fanfiction author KhaosOmega writes down more names to join Mitch.
  • Episode 6: Change the Bull to a Gill
    • When Jon sees the Breadbug stealing a pellet, he throws a pikmin to see what would happen. Instead of dragging the pellet and pikmin to its nest like it normally does, the breadbug suddenly digs underground. Emile even has to admit that things should not have happened like that at all.
  • Episode 7: Pearly Whites
    • While trying to build up his blues, Jon notices a single blue toting a red pellet who somehow managed to get stuck in a wall.
      Jon: *Beat* "Does this normally happen, Emile?"
      Emile: "I've... never seen it."
      Jon: "Oh my God--!"
      Tim: "Is that Wally?"
      * Silence as everyone processes this, before Emile loses it.*
      Jon: "Oh. Good. Great. Fan-tast-tic."
  • Episode 9: Found My Sign
    • Chugga regaling Tim and Jon with the Insane Troll Logic used by his teenage self about why video game music is better than mainstream music. The latter calls Chugga an idiot for it.
    • Near the end of the day, Jon is doing some last-minute roll call, as his present Pikmin count vs. Pikmin in the field total is 83 to 84. He blows the whistle on a couple of Pikmin loafing around, and he ends up having 85 pikmin in his party, one more than the amount of Pikmin in the game world.
      Jon: "What is with this!? COME ON!"
  • Episode 10: Egg Beater
    • The various misadventures of Frederico, the Pikmin who just really wants to swim... despite being yellow. Much to Jon's ongoing consternation.
    • Another yellow Pikmin goes over the wall Jon's trying to bomb... and decides to aggro one of the Fiery Blowhogs instead.
  • Episode 11: Distant from the Spring
    • As it turns out, Emile did notice Esteban, and just didn't say anything because he didn't want to ruin the magic of Jon's joke. This went on for long enough that Jon was actually beginning to grow concerned about Emile not noticing what he was doing. Emile didn't even volunteer this himself, he only said anything after Jon pointed it out.
    • Jon's utter frustration with how the in-game map works. Specifically, he hates the fact that the map changes based on which direction you're facing, in spite of the fact that there's an arrow in the upper right corner that tells you exactly that, thus making that effect pointless.
    • While attempting to retrieve a pair of bombs, Jon's two active Pikmin (one red) take an impromptu bath instead. As he whistles them to safety, one of the bombs abruptly shrinks and vanishes before their eyes. note 
      Jon: "Why did one of the bombs disappear?"
      Emile: "I didn't... see it disappear..."
      Tim: "It was like a Shy Guy."
      Jon: *extended sucking noise of forcibly containing frustration* "Right. Allllriiiiiiiiight..."
  • Episode 13: Venus Flytrap
  • Episode 14: Smorgasbord of Nectar
    • While swarming a drop of nectar, a flowered yellow trips right as Jon's swinging the whole swarm around, making it seem like the poor pikmin got flung aside by his own comrades in the rush to drink.
      Emile: "They threw the yellow out!"
      Jon: "No food for you, Jimmy—!"
    • Moments later, as they're moving forward — with a red leaf tripping and prompting an "Esteban, get back here!" from Jon — the crowd moves past Olimar to reveal a face-planting yellow, leading to more disbelieving laughter from Emile at how they threw him out again.
      Jon: "God, they hate Jimmy. My apologies to all Jimmies out there."
    • Later on, Jon manages to one-shot the Puffstool. Awesome yes, but Jon, being Jon, manages to experience the infamous Crushing Glitch, where almost 30 Red Pikmin phase through the ground and die. Somehow, none of the guys noticed this as it happened, leading them to wonder how Jon lost that many Pikmin to it.
  • Episode 15: Beady Long Legs
    • Emile attempts to start the episode by Tempting Fate, asking how bad getting the last part could possibly be. Jon calls him out on it, revealing that his cohosts went and had a brief discussion without him, so he already knows This Is Gonna Suck. Emile's attempt to defend himself doesn't go well:
      Emile: "I will tell you, that meeting was about... paintings of pickles."
      Jon: "Well, now I definitely know you're lying—"
      Tim: "I'll just let him... I'll just let him keep... burying... the hole deeper..."
  • Episode 16: Puzzle Solver
    • After a bunch of yellows walk right into the water while carrying a part, Jon attempts to whistle them all back to safety, only to find that the walkway is a little too high for them to reach. So he makes the trip back, whistling all the way. In the end, only one of the drowning yellows makes it back to the beach. Fans of StephenPlays likely remember this scenario all too well...
      Emile: "Ohhhh, you saved — you saved one!"
      Jon: "Hooray."
      Frederico: *promptly jumps right back into the water*
      Jon: *whistling him back to safety... again* "GET OVER HERE!"
      Tim: "He's like, 'I don't wanna live if all my friends are dead!'"
    • At the end of the day, Jon puts all of his pikmin back to double-check numbers. During the sunset cutscene, a straggler appears climbing up to the Onion.
  • Episode 17: Dance in Circles
    • The title stems from how the pikmin deal — or fail to deal — with a Broken Bridge preventing them from carrying anything on a particular offshoot back to base. Despite Jon's team being made up of blues which should be able to walk right through the water. While Emile points out that this makes sense for the ship part, Jon shoots back that the problem shouldn't extend to smaller items like enemy corpses, which is what prompts Olimar reflecting on the pathfinding problem in the first place.
      Emile: "I like that pikmin dancing with a corpse."
      Jon: "Swing your partner, do-si-do... Where it stops, nobody knows! We're not gonna do our jobs 'cuz we're a bunch of lazy slobs! One, two, three, four, one-two-three-four~"
    • Jon also struggles with Shearwigs, with one in particular drawing out the struggle for an impressive length of time before he's finally able to bring it down.
  • Episode 18: Zirconium Rotor
    • Jon's utterly flummoxed when a team of blues head the exact opposite direction than he expected, having apparently decided to carry their spoils into unexplored territory.
  • Episode 19: Impressed?
    • After the previous day's pathing problems, Jon naturally expects the retrieval team for the Pilot's Seat to take the worst possible route — right through that same area and into Bulbear territory. To everyone's astonishment, however, when Jon starts working on clearing the path, some of the reds promptly grab the Sheargrubs they just vanquished and carry them back the way they came. They even manage to avoid falling into the water, leading to the AI impressing Jon for the first time.
    • Jon also impresses Emile and Tim with how effectively he handles the Bulbears, luring the babies away and taking down each target with minimal casualties. ...At least until he decides to press his luck tackling the last cluster, and misses that one of the babies is completely hidden by the adult. The results are... unfortunate.
  • Episode 20: Decoy Boy
    • When Jon confronts the Armored Cannon Beetle, it quickly locks on... to a single straggler who's safely outside the stump, looking like they should be out of its line of sight. Yet the ACB clearly knows that they're there and keeps firing away at the wall, ignoring the incredulous captain and horde of reds standing nearby.
    • Jon tackles the raised mini-labyrinth leading to where the UV Lamp awaits. His first time through, he manages to lead a decent amount of yellows through... only to watch most of them tumble right off the final ledge of their own accord.
  • Episode 21: Tripping Underwater
    • Within seconds of starting, one of Jon's newly plucked blues faceplants, with Jon expressing disbelief at them having fallen already. This becomes unintentional Foreshadowing of where the title comes from, when he's shocked at how several blues trip and fall underwater in almost perfect unison.
    • Emile shouts "Where're you at?!?" over one of Jon's achievements, followed by "I'm so proud of you!" He then observes that it feels like it's been a while since he busted out that particular Catchphrase during a TRG project — but Jon misunderstands:
      Emile: "That's the first time I think that I've said that on this channel in years. It's just that exciting, it just brought that back out of me—"
      Jon: "Ouch. Thanks, Emile."
      Emile: "No, I meant the 'Where're you at?'"
      Jon: "Oh. I thought you meant the 'I'm so proud of you'."
      Emile: "I am proud of you every day... that you don't sleep in."
      Jon: "I—wow. So never."
  • Episode 22: Every Day is an Adventure
    • Cleaning up the stray sprouts scattered around the Distant Spring proves much harder than originally anticipated when one retracts into the ground to avoid some Sheargrubs, but remains on the map, much to the Guys' bewilderment. All the more so when it pops back out, having lost its flower. note 
  • Episode 24: Round Two
    • The trio repeatedly noting the Soundtrack Dissonance that results from how the music keeps shifting between calm and dramatic throughout the fight, due to Olimar getting just a shade too far away from Emperor Bulblax. In fact, the endcard of said video even replaces the jazz cover of the Forest of Hope heard at the end of most videos with a continuous back-and-forth mix of the Final Trial music and the Emperor Bulblax's theme.
  • Episode 25: Most Prized Possession
    • While arming his team at the start, Jon finds bomb rocks for all but two of his yellows. As Emile's noting this, one of the yellows promptly pulls a bomb out of thin air, much to his shock. As Jon speculates that the tin cans around the final boss arena are infinite spawners, the other yellow does the same trick.
      Tim: *softly, almost reverently* "That's..."
      Jon/Tim/Emile: *in unintentional unison* "Cool..."
    • Jon's reaction to seeing that the final ship part is a piggy bank.

     Kirby and The Amazing Mirror 
  • Running gags:
    • Checking the map takes everyone to the pause/Map screen. The Guys try to warn each other before Mapping. ...Mostly. They try, anyway.
    • Chugga has an unfortunate tendency to miss important details, leading to various setbacks... and Brick Jokes once Jon and the others find what he accidentally left undone. By Episode 15, he's gotten so used to it that he casually claims he assumes any mistakes in the game were made by him just by default.
    • Stephen calling his Yellow Kirby Bronze.
  • Episode 1: Split Personality
    • Jon is the most experienced with the game, so he gets to be player one this time.
    • At the start of the game session, they accidentally use Stephen's save file instead of Jon's. This turns out to have ramifications they didn't expect further down the line.
    • Since the game doesn't force all four players to stay on the same screen, chaos ensues as Jon runs ahead and defeats a boss by himself, while the group decides to go in two different directions.
    • Stephen takes a liking to the Cupid ability, calling it this game's equivalent of the lamp. He also gets very excited over the Bomb ability.
  • Episode 2: Master Hand
    • Emile is the first to encounter Master Hand, and is amazed and delighted to learn that swallowing it gives access to Kirby's Melee moveset.
    • Around the middle of the episode, Emile starts asking when they want to end this recording session and take a break. (This turns out to be because he wants to participate in Pokémon GO's Community Day.) But he also balks at stopping when he gets the Missile power-up, leading to this:
      Emile: "Oh no-no-no-no—noooooaaaah..." *Red Kirby stares forlornly at the spikes where his power-up self-destructed* "I lost my plane." *casually walking away* "Alright, we can turn the game off now."
    • Just before that, Stephen entreating Emile to let him eat the plane... right up until he accidentally discovers that eating one of its torpedoes grants him Bomb.
    • After Jon's solo performance against the first boss, Tim and Stephen join him against Kracko, with Chugga warping into the thick of it. It goes... poorly. The synchronized deaths get the whole group laughing, though.
  • Episode 3: Dog Ear Arms
    • Stephen and Tim encounter Box Boxer, a Waddling Head that fights using its massive floppy ears. Both are rather taken aback by the sight.
  • Episode 4: Team Lazer
    • The titular Team Lazer doesn't last very long after being named...
      Jon: *as an enemy swoops past him and directly into Stephen* "Team Lazer."
      Stephen: *immediately, in a very casual 'cool guy tone'* "I'm dead."
      Jon: "Team Solo Lazer."
    • Immediately afterwards, Stephen finds another one of the Cupid-granting enemies.
      Stephen: "Oh, thank God. I've only ever wanted to be an angel."
      Jon: "A-ha-ha, everyone has a life goal, I guess. ...Or death goal, maybe, in that case."
      Stephen: "I just wanted to be able to not have to tap A to fly..."
    • Chugga spends roughly half the episode fighting Wiz, the boss of Peppermint Palace, mistakenly believing that he's merely a mid-boss and complaining about how hard he is. Tim offers to join him, but goes unheard... and Chugga doesn't remember that he can call others for help until immediately after losing all his lives and returning to the hub.
    • Meanwhile, Tim struggles to make it to where Jon's fighting Batafire, only to enter the arena with style... and score the final blow by dropping his Stoned self onto the mini-boss's head.
    • After finding a door that's blocked off, Stephen demonstrates what he calls the true Amazing Mirror experience: making Kirby dance while waiting for a chance to call a friend with the right powerup to proceed.
  • Episode 6: Mega Titan
    • While Jon, Tim and Emile take on Mega Titan, Stephen explores another area. This leads to a bit of Mood Whiplash after the boss fight.
      Jon: "And now we triple dance." *cheery music starts*
      Stephen: *sucks a block out from underneath himself* "OhGodNO--" *Beat* "You guys are dancing and I just killed myself."
      Jon & Emile: *Squeeing over their Kirbies forming a mini pyramid (with Stephen joining in upon noticing)*
      Tim: *casually* "People die and we dance... When will we stop dancing?"
    • Jon and Tim attempt to navigate a maze of cannons firing through spike-filled hallways while Emile and Stephen explore Candy Constellation... and keep double and triple-checking the map, breaking their concentration.
  • Episode 7: Crazy Master
    • Jon gets increasingly annoyed at Stephen and Emile not being able to just follow a straight line.
    • After Jon manages to make his way through the cannon maze, barely hanging on with a sliver of health, he calls Tim so he can warp safely over. Then he notices the Gordo merrily bobbing his way and panics.
      Jon: "Oh my God, Tim, answer fast—!"
    • Jon and Stephen are plowing on through Candy Constellation, trying to catch up to Emile. When they come to a room with Wheel, Jon takes it and Stephen hangs onto Cupid (his favourite powerup), planning to follow the cleared-out path created by Jon as he speeds ahead. Unfortunately, Jon was speeding ahead so fast that the enemies all respawn again, prompting a massive panic from Stephen as he confronts the swarm.
  • Episode 8: Fighting Batafire with Fire
    • As Jon nears the Goal for Moonlight Mansion, Stephen and Emile's quest for a route to Olive Ocean hits a roadblock, and they consider having Jon call them for backup. However, Jon abruptly — and loudly — refuses:
      Jon: "No, NO!" *exaggeratedly sulky voice* "I'm doing this myself."
      Stephen: "...But I want the points."
      Emile: "...Challenge accepted."
      Stephen: "I want the points..."
      Jon: "I want the high score!" *enters, sees Batafire* "NEVER MIND I'M CALLING NOW!"
      Stephen: *as everyone ports over* "I'm ente—What the piss is this?!" *snap to casual tone* "Moltres has put on a lotta weight."
    • During the fight, Emile makes a statement that Makes Sense In Context, but still sounds like a major Accidental Innuendo.
      Emile: "Aww, I can't turn into fire from eating his balls."
    • Later, while fighting another Batafire in Cabbage Cavern, Emile gets killed on his way down to try and help. Cue his poor Red Kirby's Death Throws dropping past the side of the fight.
  • Episode 9: UFO is a Treat
    • More map antics abound, as Emile, Stephen and Tim attempt to navigate their way toward unexplored areas and keep pausing to check the map while Jon tries to battle Boxxy and ends up calling out instructions and directions. This ultimately ends in a "Shaggy Dog" Story when it turns out the path they were trying to take for so long is blocked off from the other side anyway.
  • Episode 10: Radish Ruins
    • The episode starts before the recording session officially begins, with Stephen improvising a song which Emile misidentifies as being in the same style as Michael Jackson. Stephen and Jon disagree with the sentiment, while Tim's just trying to get into position and start his recording.
    • Jon finds a health extension. Once again, Stephen gets it instead — only this time, the Guys figure out that it's because they're playing on Stephen's save file. The 'helper Kirbies' get the short end of the stick and are stuck with the default health bar, even if they're the ones who find the hearts. note 
    • Jon finally points out that someone (read: Emile) found a warp room in Peppermint Palace and didn't bother connecting it all the way back to the hub. Emile comes up with increasingly flimsy excuses in his defense.
      Emile: "Okay, I found that place by accident when trying to find another place."
      Jon: "Okay, so why didn't you go in the door to finish connecting it?"
      Emile: "I think I died and got a game over."
      Jon: "You can't! There's no enemies in the room!"
      Emile: "I think in the next room over I died?"
  • Episode 12: Ancient Proverb
    • The exchange that inspired the title:
      Jon: *checking the map* "We went the wrong way; we needed to go u—oh wait, we have to go down to go up, 'cause it's... very stupid."
      Stephen: "It's like an ancient proverb. Gotta go down to—"
      Jon: *at the same time* "Gotta get on down—!"
      Emile: "Did I — did I tell you, Stephen, what I thought proverbs were?"
      Tim: "Oh no!"
      Jon: "Oh boy."
      Stephen: "Uh, is it a body part, or a Canadian thing? It's one or the other..."
      Emile: *bursts out laughing*
      Jon: "Ah, so you're learning how he thinks—!"
      Stephen: "—a body part... Canadians are born with them; they fall off by age twelve."
      Other Guys: *more laughter*
      • The answer, btw, is that he thought it was the verb equivalent of a pronoun.
    • During a Goal game with Stephen, two 1Ups fly straight for Jon like they were laser-guided, boosting his count up to eleven.
      Jon: "I don't need any more lives; I'm good, game!"
      Stephen: "So kind of the game. You have a magnet on your belt."
    • While making their way to the boss of Radish Ruins, accompanied by a soundtrack of blowing wind:
      Jon: "This is some lovely music you guys found."
      Stephen: "It's very, very ominous."
      Emile: "Uh, I'm... kinda scared..."
      Stephen: "I'm sure everything will be fi—" *immediately falling into spike pit* "—OH MY GOD—!"
    • Said boss is none other than (Dark) Meta Knight, identified in-game as '???'. With all four guys present, the battle turns just as chaotic as the Kracko fight, with power-ups getting juggled back and forth amongst them. Not all of this power-trading goes smoothly, either...
      Jon: "Why'd you spit away the sword?!"
      Emile: "Oh, I thought that was just a star... I wish they were differently colored so you could—"
      Jon: "They ARE!"
      Emile: "They are?!"
  • Episode 13: Warp to World 7
    • After a very messy intro:
      Stephen: "Welcome back and we apologize-"
      Jon: "Don't worry, the conversation we had before that intro was almost worse, about the kid's show Monty Python's Flying Circus."
      Emile: *guilty laughter*
    • This exchange:
      Emile: *yelling at an enemy* "C'mon. Let me suck you!"
      Jon: "No."
      Emile: "You wish, Jon." *regrets immediately* "I'm kidDING!"
      Jon: "I'm joking, that's why I said NO."
      Emile: *awkward embarrassed laughter*
      Jon: "I don't think you understand what "no" means!"
      Emile: "You know, the kid's show, the Runaway Guys!"
    • "Emile, are you sure you're not the dirtiest person in this room?"
  • Episode 14: Perhaps a Reused Boss
    • Emile's failed confrontation with Wiz ten episodes prior comes back to haunt him when Jon gets the map for Peppermint Palace and sees that somebody made it to the Boss Room and didn't get the Shard:
      Jon: "Who did this? Who did this?!"
      Stephen: "I have never been there."
      Jon: "Who was this?!"
      Emile: "I got that far and then got a game over."
      Jon: *completely calm* "Oh." *back to incredulous* "Why didn't you call in?!"
      Emile: "I didn't know it was the end, I just saw a boss!"
      Jon: "Yo—" *Stunned Silence*
      Stephen: "I mean Jon, if we wanted to know then, we'd have to use the Map." *over Jon's stammering* "Who do you think we are, Dora the frickin' Explorer?!"
      Jon: "Every boss room has the same set-up!"
      Stephen: "It's impossible to know for sure."
      Jon: "We've done seven of them!"
      Stephen: "I know, but that's not ALL of them, Jon; that one could have been different!"
    • In self-defense, Emile suggests that he was confused because he'd fought the boss before elsewhere, resulting in the others wondering if Amazing Mirror reuses one of its bosses. When Emile and Tim make it back, he openly pleads with the game to vindicate him:
      Emile: "Please be a reused boss so I can save some face." *enters*
      Jon: "Is he saving face? Let's find out! Buckle up, bay-beeeeee—" *as Wiz's hat comes down* "It's not."
      Jon: "This is th—That was a boss?! No wonder you were struggling—"
      Emile: "I didn't— I thought that was like a mid-boss! It didn't look powerful!"
    • "Ah, the famous murdering Bloomingdale's."
      Stephen: "Welcome to Bloomingdale's, here's your knife..."
      Chugga: "Here's your murder!"
    • "If you can't change the world, change your dong."
  • Episode 15: Fixed Mirror
    • After Stephen and Tim have to borrow lives from him within thirty seconds of each other, Jon comes to a startling realization:
      Jon: "I'm the only one with lives left! Damnit!"
      Stephen: "Yeah, and if you could do us a favor and keep 'em..."
      Jon: "I can't at this rate!"
      Emile: "If you could do us a favor and give them up to us."
      Stephen: "Yeah, 'cause we need 'em, if you could just get some more, that'd be real great thanks!"
    • Emile proceeds to die against Wiz, Borrows from Jon to get back to the fight faster, and promptly dies again.
      Jon: "Stop borrowing my lives!"
    • Jon's delight when he notices the special animation for calling someone as a U.F.O.
      Jon: "It's a little satellite dish!"
    • This exchange:
      Stephen: "How's the boss battle going?"
      Emile: "I'm involved in it; that's all you need to know."
      Stephen: "Oh, so bad...?"
      Emile: *laughing* "That's what I was going for!"
    • Stephen's constant attempts to check the Map while Jon and Emile are doing a Goal Game causes Emile to miss a 1Up.
      Stephen: "Well, that's alright," *cracking up* "We can always get 'em from Jon—"
      Jon: "Fuck you!"
      Emile: "We'll be fine~!"
      Jon: "Fuck you..."
  • Episode 16: Dark Meta Knight
    • While fighting Dark Mind, Jon manages to lose the Master Sword by accidentally inhaling it and Tim's Spark at the same time. Ironically, this happens at the same time Stephen learns that you can get other powerups from swallowing some of his attacks... by getting a (regular) Sword:
      Stephen: "Oh, you get swords if you eat the things. That's helpful."
      Jon: "...Wait... wait."
      Stephen: "Where's your sword?"
      Jon: "Where IS my sword?!"
    • Emile's inexperience with Kirby games leads to him trying to air-puff Dark Mind to death. Then there's his sudden realization late into the fight:
      Emile: *watching Jon get Ice* "Oh, those give you powers!"
    • On their next attempt, in the midst of all the chaos, Tim manages to inhale the Master Sword... only to promptly spit it out as a star.
    • All the borrowing from Jon catches up to the team when they burn through his life buffer, only to learn that the game won't let them choose not to borrow from him and restore their lives normally. They then try sitting and watching him fight Dark Mind solo, nearly managing it... before sliding into one of his orbs.
      Jon: *grimly* "Ice physics."
    • As he hits zero lives, Emile accidentally calls him:
      Jon: "Who is asking to borrow, 'cause the answer is no."
      Emile: "I accidentally dropped the controller, that's what that was. So now you have to do it with annoying beeping!"
      Jon: "Great! Thanks, Emile!"
      Emile: *laughs* "Anything for you, buddy!"
  • Episode 17: Looking for Lives
    • The running debate about whether or not Jon is The Chosen One.
    • While Jon searches for 1Ups in the early levels, Emile and Stephen decide to aim for one of Candy Constellation's Goals, believing that offers riper returns. Problem is, Box Boxer stands in their way. Suffice to say, this doesn't go as planned:
      Emile: "So, um, we've each lost a life so far."
      Jon: "Are you kidding me."
      Emile: "Against the boss needed to get to the room."
      Stephen: "Don't worry, Jon, this is all going according t—"
      Jon: "I have found FOUR LIVES since you guys started—"
      Emile: "We've actually — we're down to one life each."
      Jon: "I don't — oh my..."
      Emile: *as Red Kirby spirals to his death* "And now I'm down to zero~!"
      Jon: *resigned* "Oh my God..."
    • Eventually, they decide to take a mulligan and let Box Boxer finish them off for a continue-induced restock:
      Emile: "Well, on the positive side, that means we've no longer net lost lives."
      Stephen: "It's true, it's true. We've really improved our situation."
      Jon: "I hate you all so much right now."
      Emile: "Um... Maybe we should just borrow off of Jon after he hits 99—"
      Jon: "NO!"
    • How they get revenge: Stephen brings bombs, stands on the ledge outside the mini-boss arena, and rains down explosives while Emile keeps distracting it.
    • Jon realizes that they can farm lives from Goals by having one person stand outside while the others go through, then call them back. Shame he only realizes it right after they all went through at once...
  • Episode 18: World's Best Dad
    • Jon playing chaperone and hanging out outside the Goal Game, calling the others back so they can grind lives.
    • Poor Stephen doesn't have much luck catching 1Ups, even when the game showers them during one run:
      Emile: "It's pity!"
      Jon: "This is definitely pity, guys. For you, this is definitely pity."
      Emile: "Eleven lives now."note 
      Stephen: "I... I managed to get two."
      * Beat as the other two Kirbys seem to stare at Bronze Kirby before they start their dance*
      Jon: *cracks up laughing*
      Stephen: "Sh-shut up and call me!"
    • Emile playing the anchor, then hanging up on poor Tim when calling everyone back.
      Emile: "Can you imagine if I accidentally hit L at a time like this?"note  *hangs up* "Alright, Jon, are you good?"
      Jon: "Tim's not there. Why did you stop the phone?"
      Emile: "I thought he was... okay." *calls*
      Jon: *Angrished exhalation*
    • Where the title comes from:
      Jon: *watching the others enter the Goal Game again* "I better get a 'World's Best Dad' mug after this fucking LP."
      Emile: "I mean, you're a married man now, buddy, welcome to the life."
      Jon: "S'yeah, that's not how this works. We don't put the ring on and suddenly have to chaperone everyone else." *Beat* "Two of you are older than me!"
      Emile: "I'm not, Dad."
    • This leads into a short exchange where they figure out that Jon is older than Stephen:
      Stephen: *chuckles* "I was saying that with disgust." *with mounting belligerence* "I'm not older than you. I'm still young and fun."
      Jon: *laughing*
      Emile: "I am not like you; I'm young and vibrant."
      Stephen: "Speaking of, I need a ride to the mall." *everyone else cracks up* "'Cuz that's where I do Young and Fun Things."
    • Tim jumps on the Goal Game star just a little too soon and takes off without Jon and Stephen, leading to them making awkward small talk while waiting for him to finish.
    • During the rematch with Dark Meta Knight:
      Jon: "Oh, how did you put out the tornado?"
      Emile: "Yeah, how did you — how did you do that? I thought it was..."
      Stephen: *completely casual* "Oh, I ate it."
  • Episode 19: Fighting Sauron
    • Emile gets the Master Sword after Jon loses it... and spits it away despite Jon's frantic warnings.
      Emile: "I tried not to do it! I pressed B by accident—"
      Jon: "You jumped and pressed B!"
    • Jon: "The amount of shade I could throw right now. I could blot out the sun right now."
    • This exchange when random enemies start showing up in the Dark Mind battle:
      Emile & Stephen: "Wheel!"
      Stephen: "Perfect! That one's going to help a lot, to this enemy that is on the air."
    • ...Followed by him promptly figuring out that Wheel is, in fact, very useful so long as he keeps moving.
    • Poor Emile's track record continues:
      Jon: "What power-up do you have, Emile? What power-up did you have, Emile?"
      Emile: "It was just a regular star."
      Jon: "No, everything turns into a power-up in this fight!"
      Emile: "Oh, I was spitting them out thinking that—"
      Jon: "Oh my God, Emile...!"
      Emile: "How was I supposed to know that?!"
      Jon: *regarding the Master Sword, sounding utterly exhausted* "Gimme that. Someone else take — stab him, please..."
    • Jon's 10-Minute Retirement, with Pink Kirby sulking in the corner while the other Guys fight Dark Mind... until Emile almost has him dead. Then he's suddenly reinvested again:
      Jon: *over Emile's Big "NO!" at losing his grip on the Master Sword* "No, you—no!" *rushing in* "No-no! You don't get the final hit!"
      Emile: *trying to get it back* "Noooo-ho!"
      Jon: "You don't get the final hit with the sword!"
      Emile: "Yes I do!"
      Jon: "You don't get the sword kill! You don't get the sword kill!"


How well does it match the trope?
