Season 1

Episode 1: Show Within a Show:

 Zack: He seems nice.

Tom: Shut up Zack.

  • The very first scene of the series, which includes Zack's Hand Puppet.

 Tom: Thank you, Zack, for ruining the 20th take.

Zack: You're welcome, man.

Tom: You're not sorry, are you?

Zack: Nah.

  • "If you get near the front of the camera, I will stab you! I will actually stab you!"
  • "You guys keep your dead cat in a box, too?"

Episode 2: Freudian Excuse

  • "Putting pants on would be admitting defeat."
  • "Aww, how tragic. Watch as my hatred turns to pity."
  • "He's a butt! I hate him!"
  • Tom on explaining his supposed older brother's age...

 Tom: I didn't say he was older...

Zack: Hahaha! Tom's a loser!

Episode 3: Terrible Interviewees Montage

  • Heartfelt music playing as Dana tells Tom that she'll be his co-star because he sucks at his job, comparing him to a turd steaming on the carpet, that she needs to clean up.
  • Zack's reaction to Shannon bursting into the room and berating Tom and Dana.

 Zack: Please don't eat me.

  • Tom fending off one of the more enthusiastic interviewees as she said she was "Up for anything..."

 Tom: Oh, oh, uh...nonono No!

  • Eternal vigilance against "This Troper":

  Mr. Administrator: A troper has just referred to himself in the first person. We must make an example of him.

  • Dana finally getting fed up with Uncle Bill.

 Dana: God, Next!

Uncle Bill: I thought we were just hanging out...

Dana: NEXT!!

Episode 4: Dumbass Has a Point

  • Dana bringing the guys cold pizza when she returns from getting dinner. A really nice, friendly gesture. Except that there's only one small slice left in the box.
  • Zack using Buffy-Speak.
  • "This is not unimpressive." "This is not me sleeping."
  • "That was unwatchable."

 Tom: (to Dana) Look, if you keep assuming that someone can't do anything right, sooner or later, you're gonna be proven wrong.

Zack: Yeah!

Tom: God, I wish I had some duct tape right now.

Zack: Why?

Tom: To shut you up!

Dana: To be a "dumbass with a point", you need to have a point, dumbass.

Tom: Trope still applies.

Dana: Does not.

Episode 5: Unresolved Sexual Tension

  • This gem:

 Dana: So I could take my hair down and be all "Hair Flip! Hair Flip!" and you'd be like "Oh, that is so-super-sexy!".

[very long and awkward beat]

Zack: I'd do her.

  • After Dana realizes Tom is flirting with her for insulting Zack.

 Dana: Tom... *takes his hands, smiles fondly* I hate you.

  • The gag of confusing their characters and themselves, especially:

 Dana: Do we have sexual tension?

Tom: [Freezes like a rabbit in the headlights.]

  • Just seeing Tom and Dana on the same bed, even though Dana already stated outright she dislikes Tom.
  • "Bend over backwards to accomodate me!"
  • Also, "Why do you hate me?!"

Episode 6: Psycho Ex-Girlfriend

 Tom: "I mean have you seen her [Shannon's] boobs, Dana?"

Dana: "No, Tom. No, I haven't."

Tom: "They're so good."

  • And later:

 Shannon: "Shut up, you just don't know anything about love."

Dana: "Oh no, my heart, she breaks. *Traces the outline of a teardrop down her cheek*

 Tom: "I was writing what I know."

Zack: "Hah...that's why it's bad because you don't don't know a lot."

 Zack: "Hey Dana? I followed you all day with my camera because I love you."

Dana: "That's nice, Zack." (goes inside)

Zack: "Aww...why doesn't she like me? It's like she couldn't even see my boner!"

  • On why Tom has suddenly become rather sanguine regarding Shannon.

 Dana: "So...your stalker friended me on Facebook, by the way."

Tom: "Oh, you mean my Ex?"

Dana: "No Tom, I mean your stalker. An Ex is someone you run into at parties and pretend not to notice. And this is waaay creepier than that."

Tom: "Huh..."

Dana: "What do you mean 'Huh'?! A few days ago you were scared shitless of this girl...what...What is there to think about? If a guy were doing this to me I'd..."

[Long Beat]

Dana: "You started sleeping with her again, didn't you?"

Episode 7: Walk and Talk

  • At the beginning:

 Tom: "Zack, I thought we were playing 'Shut the Fuck Up'."

Zack: "I always lose at this game!"

  • This:

 Zack: Wait, was [the guy from Blue's Clues] the blue one, or was the dog??

Episode 8: Romantic False Lead

 Dana: Tom, find someone else. Date... someone else. Sleep with anyone else.

Zack: Not "it"!

  • "Don't go, we still have more scenes to shoot! Also, I love you..."
  • Dana's nickname for Shannon is "Crazyfuck McStalkerson".
  • Zack: "Wait, is the pegleg like a stripper pole?"

 Zack: Would you love me if I gave you candy?

Dana: No.

Zack: A unicorn?


Zack: What about my undying love?

Episode 9: Did You Think I Can't Feel?

  • Zack's line at the end of the episode, referring to Dana and Tom:

 ....Just fuck, already... Jesus!

  "[Nervously] Why are you looking at me?"

Episode 10: Mysterious Employer

 Zack: Well actually, I wanted to know where the bathroom i...

Administrator: SILENCE!

[Zack gulps]

  • The Administrator getting mad at Tom for Dana's lecture.
  • The Zack sock puppet.
    • Zack using the Dana sock puppet.

 Tom: He got angry at me. Why did he get angry at me?

Zack: It's your face. I get angry just looking at it.

  • Writing a new episode:

 Tom: So, should we be arguing, or...?

Dana: No, we can't just be us.

Season 2

Episode 1: Always Someone Better

  • People can't help but crack up whenever Ace says "gurt". Including the Administrator.
  • Dana and Tom trying to fog ire out how they should go about their second season.

 Dana: Ah success. You're a fickle slut.

Episode 2: The Ace

 Tom: Where are we going?

Dana: Somewhere specific.

  • Dana's reasoning for getting a new character.

 Dana: Maybe we could have a Foil to you, someone who's good in all the ways you're... not.

Tom: We're talking about my character, right?

From Shannon's Character Blog (found here)

  I’m going to show him that no matter what that Dana girl does, I’ll do better. They want to have a fight by a pond? Well, he and I will have an even BIGGER fight by an even PRETTIER pond!

  • Shannon appears to have gone right off the deep end of crazy:

  [Following Zack] And how did he notice me in the first place, seeing as I’ve been wearing nothing but camouflage since the whole operation began? I might have to get my roller skates out of the closet so I can keep up with him.
