Ryon and Felicia: "Blah blah blah, banter banter"
Ryon: "Wait, what happened to Goofy's wife? Or is this some sort of kid he just kidnapped? Like a ward. Goofy's got a whole closet full of little shoes. Little tiny bones in the cellar, the crawlspace."
Felicia: "No, listen to this! [reading from phone] 'Goofy's unnamed wife has appeared but always with her face unseen. Goofy's wife later on dies as he states to his son, Max, in the 1995 film, "A Goofy Movie". "She's up there with the stars."'??"
Ryon: "Ugh god. Did they take her to the farm?"
Ryon: "Alright, let's play this fucker."
Ryon: "Alright, reset this shit."
Ryon (as Goofy): "Sorry son, I guess I'ma permanent disappointment to ya, a-hyuck!"
Felicia: "This is for children! This is for like the lamest of children!"
Ryon (as puzzle is finally being solved: "So, fun fact. A young chimpanzee solved this in five minutes."
Felicia: "This is easy, look. ... Oh no. Wow. Alright, that's not the way that goes."
Felicia: "I... [Ryon leaves the screen] OH! You left before I could get the key! You left before I could get the key, you stupid man! You are so stupid!"
Ryon: "The secret here is that Goofy has cancer and wanted to spend one last adventure with his son before dying."
Felicia (as Max): "I'm on my own, Dad! I don't know if I have the tools to make it!"
Felicia (as Goofy): "You can do it; I got the cancer."
Felicia: "You have five lives; I have zero! Maybe let me get some cherries! You don't need six fucking lives! I'm a child!"
Felicia: "3 nebulous canines"
Ryon: "5 Goofy rat tails pointing straight to the sky"

- This episode was the first appearance of the catchphrase, "Let's play this fucker" which would be repeated in most future episodes in various forms just before the gameplay segment began. It also appeared on a T-shirt.
- Ryon only said "Alright, let's reset this shit" once, but Sean edited it in after every failed attempt at that puzzle.
- In the episode intro, both hosts praise the SNES controller as one of the best of all time. Later on, Felicia blames it for causing her to fall in a pit in the game. Sean edits in a flashback to their earlier comments. This ironic flashback editing style appears frequently in later episodes.

Even more than the first episode, this one really defined the early series. The uncooperative "cooperative" play style of the siblings is featured at length as they constantly thwart each other's efforts to solve puzzles, sometimes on accident but often on purpose. It launched two catchphrases, "Let's play this fucker" and "Reset this shit." The running joke of Ryon hating Goofy came from this episode. The tradition of often lengthy flailing at solving puzzles was set here as well, as they both distract and obstruct each other. The editing style that acts as a third personality is in full force here, too. The series differentiates itself from many gaming shows by putting on no airs of mastery or expertise, strolling into each episode without manuals or research, skipping story and instructions, with the inevitable frustration making for funny and relatable moments. It all made for an episode memorable enough that the same game was replayed for the 100th episode celebration.
