'Dick jokes' are a common form of humour, and the characters in Archer are no strangers to making them. Sometimes implied, sometimes explicit, a well-placed dick joke can bring a climax to any scene, episode or season. Here is an attempt to chart them, be they retiring, hidden in plain sight or the out in the open. Euphemisms and insults will also be noted.
- Malory: "Sterling ?! Len ?! Either, and, or, both?! Where the hell are you?! Len?!
- Barry: "Yeah, do you know where he is?"
- Malory: "Yes, I'm just screaming his name down the hall to
- celebrate that fact" [epic sarcasm]
- Barry: "Is that some kind of a joke?" [indeed it is, some kind]
- Malory: "Is that?" [alluded to his genitals, he is naked]
- Barry: "It is cold in here".
Hidden in Plain SightEdit
In Swiss Miss (s2e1), teenage nymphomaniac Anka Schlotz is overly fond of a guten 'Wilhelm', a German word for William, or willy: a strong name associated with Kings and Emperors, such as Kaiser Wilhelm I. Her enthusiasm is not matched by experience however and her naivity reveals itself on the fateful skidoo escape:
- Archer: Grip it as hard as you can and twist the absolute shit out of it!
- Anka: Oh, I get it! Just like men love it on their Wilhelm!
- Archer: No we...oh my god! You've never even seen a Wilhelm!"
Out in the OpenEdit
- Lana: "And what do we even know about this guy?"
- Archer: "Only that he's not circumcised."
- Lana: "Okay, glossing over how you know that--"
- Archer: "We touched penises."
- Lana: "No! Glossing!"
The Sound of WoodEditIn Viscous Coupling (s4e5), Krieger gets audibly aroused ( Video Ref ) by Archer's description of an epic robot battle between Barry and Ray, "fighting to the death in the streets of Manhattan". Krieger's explicit assertion is met with implicit scepticism (in Japanese) by his disappointed 'virtual' girlfriend, Mitsuko Miyazumi, implying he couldn't get it up for her:
- Krieger: "My penis can only get so erect!"
- Mitsuko: "Hontou Ne?" [translates to: "oh really?"]
- Krieger: "I was tired!"
In The Handoff (s7e2), Archer is attracted to Veronica Deane, and Krieger to Malory:
- Archer: "Okay, so what do we know?"
- Lana: "Um, old ladies give you a boner."
- Krieger: "Hey, me too!"
- 'Wilhelm" - used by Anka and Archer in Swiss Miss (s2e1).
- "Beat the worm" (pre-phrasing) - Tragical History (s2e6).
