So many great moments, but my favorite part is the collection of wildly varied chocolatey prints on the cabin wall.

My mother used to hit/threaten to hit me and my siblings with a wooden spoon when we misbehaved as well. So my sympathies are firmly with Archer here.

The first episode I ever saw and still a fantastic intro to the series.

That was supposed to be chocolate?

Yes. Because Archer was impersonating the guy in charge of the chocolate fountain.

Skorpio: "Not as much as I love chocolate. [...] So, you, malaka, bring plenty of it, yes."

I feel slightly better then.

This was my first episode also, and Sterling making a Bartleby the Scrivener joke and being totally okay with nobody else getting it completely sold me on the show.

This is one of those episodes you rewatch, it's so good. Getting ready for bed and want something light that doesn't take long? Pop in Skorpio. What's really great is that everyone gets to shine (except for Ray, who wasn't a regular yet) and they're all such distinct characters that bounce off each other so well.

It's impossible to pick out a specific quote that's the funniest, because all of them are gems.
