The flat spectrum radio quasar PKS 0736+017 has been an exciting observing target, exhibiting diverse optical variability behaviors and even sharing its field one evening with a minor planet. The behavior of PKS 0736+017 has included persistently faint and quiescent periods, episodes of quasi-periodic microvariability, dramatic flaring events, and periods of unusual oscillations. These assorted behaviors are examined, with particular emphasis on the quasi-periodic variations and unusual oscillations that accompanied a dramatic flare.
