Favourite jokes/one-liners in TV/film?


Recommended Posts

While I very much appreciate that humour is contextual and a lot of the best probably require that context to understand, but I wanted to have a topic for your favourite jokes, one liners etc etc from television and film. That favourite doesn't always equal best is one of the better things about a topic like this, as different things tickle different people.

This was the reason behind the topic. I watched Scrubs again recently and I don't know why, but I love the 'silverware in the pancake drawer' line.

This little exchange goes through my head more often than it probably should.

A bit on the longer side than the others, this cold open is amazing and replicated many times by my wife and I.

So yeah, what are yours?

Can't find it on YouTube, but from The Young Ones:

Captain: Aged, toothless, and bent old crone!
Crone: 'Ow'd yer know me name?
Captain: We wish to engage you as ship's cook and concubine.
Crone: Oh yeah? What's a concubine then?
Captain: It's a small, spiky-haired mammal.
Crone: No, that's a hedgehog.
Captain: Oh. Well in that case, we wish to engage you as ship's cook and hedgehog.

I AM going to go Simpsons. I can't find a clip of it though.


Season 7, episode 23. The Simpsons are having a BBQ at their house. Homer stands up at the head of the garden table and states:

"If I could just say a few words....I'd be a better public speaker."

Bart starts laughing but everyone else doesn't respond at all.

That made me laugh so much the first time I watched it and I still find it very funny now.
