Small left-field lines or moments that crack you up - Page 17

post #801 of 847

A weird voice over interrupts a James Spader interview on Conan, and it's one of the best moments of unintentional hilarity on the show.

 

It's the combination of the booming voice, the completely out of context line, James Spader, and Spader and Conan's deadpan reaction.

Just saw this tonight.

The way Hector 3 so casually climbs out of the tank in in TimeCrimes really cracked me up.

The scene in Ghidorah The Three Headed Monster where Mothra is trying to talk Godzilla and Rodan in to teaming up to fight Ghidorah has my favorite line of dialog from a Godzilla movie:" Oh Godzilla what filthy language!"

SUPERBAD:

When talking about Seth Rogen's wife to Fogell, Bill Hader says "You'll meet her".  For some reason that kills me.

post #805 of 847

Hhahahahaha that's my favorite line in the whole movie!

post #806 of 847

Everything Hader says in that film is genius. "That's Yoda. From Attack of the Clones"

post #807 of 847

Not really a line, but when The Wolf turns and acknowledges that Jimmy just served him some premium coffee.  Ha, love that little nod in PULP FICTION.

Liz Lemon's laugh and the split second she looks into the camera...

 

post #809 of 847

Watching Lethal Weapon tonight reminded me of this odd line from Murtaugh, talking to his wife on the phone about the suicide of his war buddy's daughter:

 

"His daughter just dove out the window."

 

I just wish we got a shot of her surely puzzled reaction to that line.

During the wedding section in Melancholia there is a scene where Kirsten Dunst leaves the ballroom where her wedding is happening and as she leaves the camera stays on her, but you can hear the announcement of a young violinist to play in the background and the crowd starts to chant her name before she starts to play.  If you think about it, it's really strange that this crowd starts chanting this young girls name like a sports team.  

 

It's like a quick chant also, always cracks me up.

post #811 of 847

 

Hanks' delivery of that line at 3:23 kills me every time. I want to make it into a ring tone.

post #815 of 847

Streamed Tucker and Dale vs. Evil on Netflix tonight, and more than any of the elaborate set-up gags, by far my biggest laugh came after Alan Tudyk gets stung in the face by a bunch of bees, and mutters that he's going to get a beer.  And then pulls one out of a cooler and dumps it on the side of his face mid-sentence.  It's the small, underplayed gurgle from the run-off that really got me, I think.

I also watched this again recently, and the line I loved is immediately following the line you mentioned; Dale gets done yelling at Tucker, and Tucker says "How'd you like me to help you get those stingers out?" and Dale says "I'd like that, thank you."  The way he says that line, so earnestly after being pissed is great.

Dune: Patrick Stewart battles with a rifle on one arm and a Pug in the other.

 

 

Ive seen pretty much every David Lynch movie, and this remains the one thing that I cannot yet fully understand his reasons for putting onscreen.

"People don't forget."

My second favorite moment in the film.

Because the soul tearing scream of "MCLOVIN! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?" will always be my first.

No Country Old Men: "That's a dead dog."

 

                                   "Yes it is."

The Cabin in the Woods. Fran Kranz locking his car door through the open window, then checking the handle. Establishes his character in about 3 seconds flat.

Hell to the yeah! I have that scene as my Facebook cover photo.

post #823 of 847

Just because I'm only now catching up with it. In Fringe, Season 1, "Bad Dreams"...John Noble's deadpan line delivery of (something to the effect of) "Well, I certainly hope she planned that" when one of the emotionally affected bystanders that Dunham is trying to save swan dives off the roof onto the car they're standing next to had me in stitches.

post #824 of 847

Maybe a little big for this topic, but one of my favorite Futurama gags (from the latter years, no less) and it's basically a throwaway bit:

 

Bender: "Oh merciful Poseidon, take pity on this mechanical mariner!"

(cut to Bender's boat getting swept away by a tsunami)

Bender: "CURSE YOU MERCIFUL POSEIDON!"

post #825 of 847

So it happened again.  Approximately once every 6 months, I think of this bit out of nowhere, and start laughing out loud at nothing, like a crazy person.  At least this time I was alone.

 

post #826 of 847
Since some of us have been on a RoboCop 2 tangent as of late, this sprang to mind.

The hotdog vendor.
"They goin' to kick somebody ass!"

I hate that movie but I'm glad it exists for that moment...it never fails to make me laugh..

I love that scene.

And it's the Queen's pug. Gurney knows the battle is already lost, but he plans to die showing his love for the aristocracy he's served all his life.

Which is strikingly similar to

 

Homer: "I'm no missionary, I don't even believe in Jeebus! Let me out!"

Pilot: "No can do..."

Homer: "SAVE ME JEEBUS!!"

The following exchange between Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis in the hopelessly brilliant Bubba Ho-tep:

 

Elvis: Now the two key words for tonight - "caution" and "flammable."

JFK: Also, "watch your ass".

post #831 of 847

From the not-so-great The Ladies Man:

 

JOB INTERVIEWER:  I see under Interests, you wrote "dabut?"

LEON PHELPS:  That's "Da Butt."  Also I like tennis.

BATMAN RETURNS - The crazy smile from Keaton...

 

TRON - David Warner's first interaction with the MCP. The bit at 1.48...  "Nice!"

The bit where Ralph justifies killing his girlfriend on the Sopranos is a classic.

 

"First of all, she was a whooooooorrrrrrreeeewwwwaaaa."  My friend and I say this constantly anytime whores are mentioned.  Never gets old!

 

 

Also from The Sopranos, this exchange tells a lot of information in three lines:

 

Tony Blundetto: They used to call me Ichabod Crane.

Christopher Moltisanti: Who?

Tony Blundetto: Some very sorry people, that's who.

 

 

Pretty much the same bit in "The Limey"

 

Can I ask you a question?Another one?Yeah. Like, you have any friends, man?Yeah.  Could call 'em that, I suppose.  Yeah, down the boozer,  Saturday night.  Meet the chaps.  Friends and colleagues.  A lot of 'em have gone.  The old faces.  Dunno where.  Different characters nowadays.  Different assumptions.  You don't know where you are.  The last load of friends I had ...  Well ...  it turned out they weren't  my friends after all.

"Your father Werner was a burger server in suburban Santa Barbara.  When he spurned your mother Verna, for a curly-haired surfer named Roberta.  Did that hurt her?"

 

If that doesn't look funny in print, you may need to translate it into Burbrah Wultuhs:

I've got Raiders on at the moment and there's a bit during the truck chase when Indy sees the Nazis clinging to the side of the truck and he let's out this exasperated "Eugh" that just kills me. 

post #839 of 847

That Indy grunt is a longtime Thread Favorite:

I catch myself doing that one all the time. Also (a la Han Solo), "Sorry 'bout the mess."
post #840 of 847

Aww, I searched and found nothing so I thought I was being all clever and shit. 

 

Still a great moment. And Raiders is eternal so I stand by it.

Haven't read the thread so this may have already been mentioned, but every recent rewatch of Alien is now dominated by Yaphet Kotto for me.

 

The one that gets me the most is when Ripley is below decks talking to Yaphet and Harry Dean and the steam is blasting out of the pipes. Ripley walks away, and Yaphet yells into the steam "AYYY RIPLAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!".

Some non spoken ones from Gone Girl always make me giggle for some reason.

 

When Nick is giving his little speech at the rotunda that goes horribly wrong , there's  a bit where he looks at his in-laws and gives them a nod.  There's a pathetic yearning for approval about it like "I'm going good aren't I mum and dad? I'm on a roll!  They like me!  You believe me"  And then it's all ripped away of course.

It's not  really an obvious gag, but it always made me laugh.

 

Also Amy's Dad's hug  is just a little too close and little too long and earnest,  big splayed fingers on those skinny arms.  Like he's overdoing it.

 

There's a lot of little details like that in this movie actually.  It's quite something.

post #844 of 847

GONE GIRL is an all-timer. I remember the scene where

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Amy returns home and falls to Nick's arms.

The way the music soars and the camera rises above the characters is just hilarious. It even made one dude shout "FER-FUCK'S-SAKES!!" during my screening.

Fincher's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.

One word: ENYA
post #846 of 847
My Cousin Vinny is filled with great one liners and moments but the scene when he does that flying punch to the guy that owes him 200 bucks kills me every time
post #847 of 847

Basically every reaction Fred Gwynne has in that film would qualify for this thread (like his "So would I!" moment during Tomei's testimony). But yeah, that moment with the punch is a hilarious payoff.

 

Similarly: the reveal of Vinny sleeping like a baby during the prison riot.
