I remember "rectus femoris" as the "rectum/butt-kicking" muscle. It helps to both extend and raise the knee, like you'd do when kicking someone. Not directly relevant to this question, but they can always ask about action too.

Rectus femoris is more superficial than vastus intermedius, as shown in the above picture.

You would think the rectus femoris is in the back bc rectum, and biceps is in the front. But no. Okay then.

makingstrides  This is how I remember the biceps, hopefully it helps. Biceps flexes (think of biceps of your arm) - flexion of the leg is raising the leg posteriorly; therefore biceps femoris must be posterior. +1
