  • "Hope you're not too old to give your dad a goodnight rim job."
  • The running gag of Rusty singing along to Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose”. The first time the song comes on, he sings along and tries to get Deb, James, and Kevin to sing, but they don’t want to.
    Kevin: Is this a man or a woman singing?
    Rusty: It’s a man! And, like, the coolest man ever! He overcame lupus!
    • When Deb, James, and Kevin still don’t want to sing along:
  • Basically anything involving the Tartan prancer, including its two gas tanks, extension cords, and remote control complete with buttons with weird symbols on them— including a swastika!
    • One of the buttons causes the rear bumper to fall off. That's all it does.
  • Chris Hemsworth's extended Walking Shirtless Scene. It's such blatant pandering that it's hilarious.

  • Russ' attempt at being his son's wingman. He claims not to know James, but talks him up in front of a girl when the three of them are alone at an outdoor hotel hot tub at night. It's understandable that he scares her off.
  • Adena's reaction after James stands up for himself.
    Adena: "Weird fucking family."
  • When Kevin asks the trucker if he really is a rapist, the trucker chuckles as if to dismiss the idea, then quickly changes the subject.
  • Clark's stumbling, bumbling attempt to get his guitar out of its cabinet, in the way only Chevy Chase could do so.
