Go To

Season 1

  • Ted. Just...Ted. Here is one of many, many examples:
    Ted: [singing, while jumping around playing with a guitar next to a depressed Brian] Best roommate friends, for-e-ver! [falls over, catching Brian's attention] ...I'm fine!
  • During Brian's game of Field of Fire, before Law shows up, Brian goes AFK to take care of his cat. Said cat begins to attack him. The people he's playing with can hear him through his microphone. Their perplexed reactions to lines of dialogue such as "GET OFF CHEETO" are priceless.
    • Even better is when Law walks up to Brian, just as the latter says yet another It Makes Sense in Context line. Law's "What the hell?" face is the best.
      Brian: Mom! Where's the iodine?
      Law: ...whatever, kid.
    • Another great part of that gag is how the lines were given through a vacant expression. The clever audio/video sync is really funny.
  • Brian's first game at VGHS is a throwdown with a guy who was roughing up Ted. Just before they start, Ki starts talking to Brian.
    Ki: Brian, I just looked at the official rulebook. I really think you should look at paragraphs 12-90.
    Brian: [clearly panicking] Any chance you could paraphrase?
    Brian: That's not what I meant, Ki!
    • Then, once Brian beats the guy, and accidentally gets him expelled in the process, he finds out that the guy was supposed to be his roommate.
  • Brianpalooza. That is all.
  • Law suddenly gaining a Badass Mustache out of nowhere in episode 4. He then keeps it for the rest of the episode.
    Jenny: What is this? Is this going to be a thing, now?
    Law: What? Do you [points to his shirt, which says] "like my stache?"
  • Freddie Wong's Drugs Are Bad voice-over from his arcade game:
    Freddie: Hey, winners don't use drugs! But you're a loser, so maybe you should stop gaming and go do some drugs. Loser.
    • Also, among the many pre-recorded player taunts for the game is the rather specific "I will never love you."
  • In episode 7 when Calhoun tells Brian that he is expelled:
    Brian: You've got to be joking.
  • In Episode Nine, Brian's return to the school just in time to play on the JV tryouts:
    Ace: Showin up late again, huh Brian, you just never seem to learn, do you?
    Ace: Rule Number 271: Never quote my rules back at me. Now sit your punk ass down and best of luck to you, son.
  • Also in Episode Nine, The Law's reaction to Jenny pulling her gun on him when he breaks into the game:
    The Law: [in a high pitched voice] Awkward!

Season 2

  • In epsiode 2, Ki has just read a complaint in the RA box. At the end it is signed by The Law. Just as she reaches that part, The Law knocks the letter out of her hands, screaming, "THE LAW!" before loping away, arms touching the ground, like a monkey and shouting "I just did that!" to a passing student, implying that the narration of the letter we heard in the Law's voice was actually him reciting it as Ki read it.
    • Every single scene featuring The Law in Episode 2 is this.
  • Ted and Ki trying to boost Brian's confidence about kissing Jenny by having him play a game with that as the main objective.
    Ki: Okay, final stage. Now maneuver your lips through the anxiety field towards Jenny's face. Go left, left!
    Ted: Use the breath mint! It's gonna boost your confidence!
    Brian: Guys, I can kiss Jenny on my own, okay? Trust me.
    [Cut to Jenny, who has suddenly appeared at the door]
    Jenny: What now?
    Brian: RAAAHH! (throws game away)
  • Advertisement:
  • The reason Jenny showed up at Brian's room is because she was also playing Ki's game, and couldn't figure out how to get past "the flagpole."
  • Mary walking in on Brian and Jenny asleep together is already awkward enough, but when Jenny yells out "MOM!", Brian does the same, before changing it out for "Mary" and then "Coach".
  • Season 2, episode 3: Brian is serving a brunch with Calhoun, Jenny, Jenny's mother and "The Baroness." The Baroness orders everyone tuna, and as Brian leans towards Calhoun to apologize for being late, Calhoun looks up at him, utter terror in his eyes, and whispers:
    Calhoun: I'm allergic to tuna!
    • Later see saw Calhoun being taken to the hospital, all but confirming he had to eat the dish.
  • Season 2, episode 4 ending: The Law is preparing to confront a potential enemy in a dramatic entrance... only for him to kick in the next door over, interrupting... whatever the student was doing. He apologizes and makes small talk before moving on. Made even better that the potential enemy can hear all of this muffled through the wall.
    • Another one from that episode has to be the sheer beauty of Cheeto sailing through the air and coming to land on Brian's face.
    • Pictured at the top of the page is Ted's attempt to impress Ki's dad by showing how cultured he supposedly is, which naturally comes off as Delusions of Eloquence more than anything else.
  • In season 2 episode 5, the Shotbot is saved from deactivation by Scott, and the latter tells the former to go run and find a "human story". Shotbot does so while wearing a Paper-Thin Disguise to look like a female student. What's even more hilarious is that everyone actually falls for it, and he actually becomes the Law's girlfriend.
    • Even more amusing is the sheer disbelief that Shane expresses when the Law tells her that Shotbot is his girlfriend.
  • Season 2, Episode 6, the Law is called in to a playoff game, and as he triumphantly walks up to the table, music swelling, he throws up. Three times. Topped with his remark to Brian:
    Law: I'm probably gonna throw up again.
    • Brian leaning away from him after that line just adds to hilarity.
  • The Behind-the-Scenes videos have many wonderful moments, but Season 2's ending moment has particularly wonderful multiple takes of Law's exit from VGHS with the different lines being approximate to, "let's blow this taco stand":
    The Law: Let's hang glide out of this loser emporium.
    [the cast and crew crumble into fits of laughter]

Season 3

  • When Jenny has an interview with OMG, the Talkbot asks her to rank her favorite races. Unfortunately, Jenny interprets this as actual human races.
    Jenny: Well, I guess that...I'm white, so white. And then I love Indian food, so maybe that would be two.
    Talkbot: ...We were talking about World of Warcraft.
    Jenny: Oh my god.
  • Near the start of season 3 episode 2, Law ends up having to do a trust fall with Shane, and everyone's egging him on to do it. He's reluctant until he sees his girlfriend outside yelling "DO IT!" from the car that he arrived in.
    • The beginning of this same episode, Law cheerfully walks into NEDHS greeting everyone until he gets to Shane.
    Law: Patricia, love that circle strafing, work those WASD's, honey! Gary, prom's coming up—who's gonna be the lucky lady? Shane! My mortal enemy!
    Shane: Hey, Law, what's up?
    Law: [Picks up stapler to throw] Oh, not much! AAAAH!! [throws stapler at Shane]
  • When Ki is investigating a case about Cheeto (who's gone missing), she meets up with Games. Unfortunately, she was wearing high heels, so while advancing towards him, we see her awkwardly stumble, having to use the doorway to support herself.
  • When Brian and Games' crew gets caught in their acts by two cops and end up in a police station, Brian is asked if he has anyone to call. Cut to Calhoun driving Brian back to school.
    Calhoun: God, I hate my job.
  • When Ted's playing an 'erotic' arcade game called Wave Race, this is shown to be a game about rideing jet skis naked while shooting a sub-machine gun wildly.
  • In season 3 episode 3, the rest of the FPS Team convince Brian that Jenny wants to have sex with him after the match against Napalm. The consequences for Brian include..
    • During the huddle-up before the match as Coach Matrix is giving them last-minute tips and pep talk, Brian looks at Jenny...and sees her seductively growl at him. Complete with Coach Matrix apparently telling him "If you win this game, you will have sex with my daughter."
    • Coach Matrix notices that Brian seems distracted, and correctly deduces that Jenny talked to him about after the game. Of course, Brian still thinks she's talking about sex.
      Coach Matrix: Yes Brian, things will change! And it will hurt!
      Brian: will?
      Coach Matrix: Oh yeah. But Jenny's wanted this for her entire life, so I'm not letting you ruin it for her!
    • Games Dean's Rousing Speech to Brian, and Brian's consequent action. That is all. Also coincides with a Moment of Awesome.
      Games: Brian, you are literally living every 16-year old boy's dream right now. You go to a video game high school. Your smoking hot girlfriend wants to have sex with you, and for some reason her mom is cool with it.
      Brian:'re right, that's pretty awesome.
      Games: Yeah, it's pretty damn awesome. Now do you want it or not?
      [Brian thinks for a bit. Cut to a medium shot of Brian holding a SAW.]
      Brian: I WANT IT! WHOO-hoo-hoo-hoo!!! [He charges and shoots down every enemy in front of him, stopping only to overkill an already downed foe. Brian then takes out his tomahawk and charges, all the while yelling]
  • When Ki accidentally walks in on Jenny and Brian making out in s3 e4.
    • Doubly funny is what it inspires her to do: drag Ted into a closet and make out with him!
    • Not to mention earlier in the episode, the response to Ki's suggestion that she and Brian kiss three times to get back at Ted and Jenny, right in front of Ki's parents:
      [cut to Ken and Karen Swan looking on in disapproval, then back to Brian and Ki]
      Brian: [whispering] I don't think that's going to win us any points with the jury, Ki.context 
      Ken Swan: [annoyed] I think you should listen to your co-counsel, honey.
    • The fact that early in the episode, Brian and Ki were blatantly telling each other that the other was attractive, in front of Ted.
  • Although it was her disturbing way of coping, Ki's robot Audie who plays a Laugh Track.
  • In episode 5, while Jenny and Mrs. Matrix are in the car, Mary decides to try being a mother and tries to comfort Jenny. What ensued was one of the most awkward moments on the show.
    Jenny: Why are you touching me?
    Mrs. Matrix: I'm...comforting you?
    Jenny: Is that a question?
  • After a few more failed attempts.
    Jenny: You're terrible at this.
    Mrs. Matrix: Yeah? Well, your... boyfriend dumped you.
  • Aaand... more failed attempts.
    Jenny: Okay, mom. Here's your chance. "Parent" me.
    Mary: [gasping for breath] Well, shit! I don't know!
  • When Jenny tearfully says that Brian is the only person who ever loved her, her mom just gives her a look, and Jenny grudgingly admits "And you, kindof, I guess... and Dad..."
  • When Jenny decides to play Field of Fire online (presumably), she gets her ass kicked into oblivion by a player named "Sushi_Princess". A little while later, she meets this player face to face...and it turns out that she got curbstomped by a little Asian girl.
    • And then the little girl proceeds to criticize her and give her life advice. (Doubles as a CMOA.)
  • The hilarious fail montage during the training session of the team that VGHS built to go against Napalm in the finale. Special mention goes to when Wendell is freaking out about handling a bomb in a briefcase (even though he was instructed by Brian earlier), and ends up whacking Brian across the face with the briefcase.
    • Picture this: Calhoun takes an enemy mook and throws him down a hill. You'd expect, maybe, a Wilhelm scream to play, right? Nope. A fucking screaming goat.
      • When Calhoun gets killed, Jax runs out for a Big "NO!", only to get shot, causing Brian and Jenny to share an obviously unimpressed look.
    • Law and New Law having a competition as to who gets to headshot Ki. It ultimately ends in the two of them driving a car towards her while simultaneously arm wrestling, but they go off a ramp that causes the car to flip multiple times. The two manage to survive...but then the car explodes.
      • And Ki's utterly baffled look at this turn of events.
    • O'Doyle's confusion when Ashley starts using his killstreak in the finale.
    O'Doyle: They have jets now??


How well does it match the trope?
