"Quips" is the sixteenth episode in Season 4 (and the ninety-fifth episode overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on February 18, 2013.
Benson announces that the gang will be spending game night doing "drawsome". Skips tells the groundskeepers Quips would be invited to game night along with Gary and Reginald. The groundkeepers moan because Quips is really annoying and always telling bad jokes. Soon Quips comes and tells bad jokes which are bad and mean. After getting exhausted by Quips' bad jokes, the guys tell Skips to convince Quips to stop. Skips refuses saying that he is the responsible for inviting his own cousin, he also tells that nobody was mad at Don after he arrived (in the last episode). Rigby furiously claims that's because everyone loved him, it was him who tried to get rid of him. Skips exasperatedly and agitatedly agrees and leaves with Quips on golf cart as the others coughing (it's signal to Skips).
At Skips's garage, Quips tells Skips that he appreciates that he invited him, he was fired from comedians (possibly due to his bad pranks) and he has to be along with the family and friends in order to restore his confidence back. Quips would tell Skips he would come back and be funnier than ever. The setting turns to night, and the groundskeepers tell Skips it is time for game night, only to be interrupted by Quips, who seems to tell more jokes. The others decide to leave because they refuse to play with Quips because he keeps telling bad jokes. But Skips forces Mordecai and Rigby to stay because they owe Skips for saving them from the multiple things they do, which they reluctantly agree. Soon Gary and Reginald come in, and brought along some dip. They start playing "drawsome" but Quips keeps telling more and more bad jokes and it really starts annoying everybody. While Reginald draws a fire engine, Quips keeps on guessing bacon and Reginald gets angry when Quips insults him with jokes and for not taking the game seriously. Aggravated and infuriated with Quips' lame jokes, Reginald traps Quips and Skips inside a cube.
While Reginald is making the cube smaller and making Quips listen to his own jokes, Quips keeps telling more jokes which angers Reginald even more. Finally, Skips tells Quips that he's not funny and nobody likes his jokes and Skips breaks the cube. They got out of the cube and Skips tells Quips that he understands Quips wants to be a comedian, but it's just really annoying when he tries his jokes on them. Quips apologizes to the others saying he had no idea they didn't like his jokes and wishes they'd told him sooner. He promises to stop telling jokes, but Skips says he has a better idea. Quips is now a clown and the children laugh at his jokes.
