    The Simian Censor: By the time I'm done with this show, it'll look like Teletubbies.
    Jason: I thought you wanted to make it less gay!
  • Trini trying to convince the team that the other Yellow Ranger is the Simian Censor.
    Trini: Come on, would Zordon really hire two Yellow Rangers!?
    Jason: Don't pin this on Zordon!
    Zack: True that, he can only do so much with what the Sentai season provides!

Episode 25 - Random Access Monster

  • The crowners in this episode deal with the ridiculousness of the real episode's plot.

  • The wedding and the subsequent reception.

    Alpha: ...should we be concerned about all that seismic activity on the moon the scanners picked up?"

How well does it match the trope?
