When does a joke become a dad joke? When it becomes apparent. (Cue the groans.) Sure, dad jokes are traditionally corny and, well, not so funny. But in honor of Father's Day, Watch rounds up some of the best wisecracks from sitcom patriarchs, including Dave (Max Greenfield) and Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) from The Neighborhood, George Sr. (Lance Barber) from Young Sheldon, Art (Dean Norris) from United States of Al, Ben (Omar Miller) and Forrest (Rob Corddry) from The Unicorn, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) from Schitt's Creek, and Julius (Terry Crews) from Everybody Hates Chris.

For fans keeping score, FBI special agents Maggie Bell and Omar Adom "OA" Zidan helped stop a drug cartel, domestic terrorists, a serial killer and kidnappers in Season 3. So, what's ahead for the duo? "Omar and Maggie die," Missy Peregrym says. Her co-star Zeeko Zaki immediately chimes in, "No, we go to Mexico and then jet-set around the world in warm locations." They're joking (we think). While we anxiously await Season 4, Watch interrogated the FBI stars for this digital exclusive.

Zaki: I look up to my character because he's such a great guy and the more time I spend with him, the better man he has become.
Peregrym: Maggie has always been an empathetic partner.

How are you most like your character?

Zaki: Well, he is 6-foot-5 and I'm 6-foot-5.
Peregrym: I have a small head and I'm shorter, and it doesn't help in the running scenes when this long-legged leaper just goes to 100 right away.
Zaki: We have to slow it down.
Peregrym: Maggie and I are both athletic: I'm comfortable doing stunts and take-downs in the physical sense.
Zaki: She'll tackle me.
Peregrym: I would also say . . . controlling, probably? We like to handle things our own way and don't want to lose. We just want to do our jobs well with the least amount of consequences.

Secret talent?

Peregrym: That's not a secret! I can pick stuff up from my feet!

Favorite hometown memory?

Peregrym: Snowboarding in Canada was really important while growing up with my family.
Zaki: Whenever I go home to Pennsylvania, my dad [a hairstylist] cuts my hair and it's so fun when that happens. I'm definitely a barber's boy.

Favorite junk food?

Peregrym: Doritos.
Zaki: Cheeseburgers from Shake Shack.

Favorite piece of advice?

Zaki: Remember the lessons, not the mistakes.
Peregrym: You can't take care of another person if you're not taking care of yourself first. When I became a mom, that lesson got really exposed.

Food that's always in your fridge?

Getting To Know Cedric The Entertainer And Max Greenfield From The Neighborhood
Photography by Eric Ray Davidson. Styled by Ashley Zohar.

By John Griffiths

Thanks to a blazing hot end-of-summer day, it's a little stuffy in The Neighborhood's production office in Studio City, California. Yet when the sophomore sitcom's two main stars, Cedric the Entertainer and Max Greenfield, arrive for a chat just ahead of a cast table read, the room suddenly exudes cool. Greenfield, snazzy in what Instagrammers might call "athleisure wear" (off-white casual-chic pants and shirt to match), shows the engaging charms—but not the puppy-dog neediness—of his character Dave Johnson, a small-town Midwesterner starting a new life with his family in a mostly black section of L.A. And the man born Cedric Antonio Kyles, stand-up comedy legend or not, carries himself with enough humility—and his own casual élan—to be dubbed Cedric the Walking Chill Pill. (His guarded Neighborhood alter ego, the Dave-resistant Calvin Butler, might take some cues!)

OK, so Bonnie Plunkett (Allison Janney) probably wouldn't win any "Mom of the Year" awards back in the day. "While other mothers were cooking dinner, you were cooking meth," Christy (Anna Faris) told her estranged mother in the pilot episode. But what a difference eight years makes! Bonnie has blossomed from an alcoholic deadbeat parent into the proud momma of a law school student. (Go Christy!) She's also the go-to shoulder-to-cry-on to her close-knit group of gal pals from AA: Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), Wendy (Beth Hall), Jill (Jaime Pressly), and Tammy (Kristen Johnston).

To celebrate the beloved sitcom's series finale on May 13, Watch rounds up Bonnie's greatest Mom moments.

The series finale of Mom aired Thursday, May 13, at 9/8c on CBS. Stream full seasons on Paramount+.
