What is a funny line from a TV show or movie?

Asked by seawulf575 (16157points) June 3rd, 2023

The wife and I were watching a show last night and they had the line “Fruit is not supposed to look surprised!”. We couldn’t stop laughing at the line and how it fit into the story.

So give us a funny line, but don’t tell us what it came from. See if we can guess.

Is that a quote from George Costanza, the “Marine Biologist”?

Parks and Recreation sucks! I wanna watch Gunsmoke.


Sorry, Roofy, but Gunsmoke isn’t on now.


That also sucks! Gunsmoke should be on 24/7, and on every channel! ;(

Normally, if given a choice between doing something and doing nothing, I’d choose to do nothing.
But I will do something, if it helps someone else do nothing.
I’d work all night if it meant nothing got done.

1: OK You guys calm down, this is insane!! There’s a simple solution to this. Jacob hasn’t touched my gift receipt because he likes my gift. So we just have someone else eat my gift receipt and see if they get sick!

2: But, it it can’t be Jacob because he’s going to pretend he’s not sick, even if it’s caked in pure shit!.

3: I’ll do it. I’ll eat the receipt to solve the problem.

2: and JACOB doesn’t touch it!!

Well, I looked online to verify Katharine Hepburn’s line from The Lion in Winter that I remembered as “It’s the twelfth century. We’re barbarians!” I found a PDF of the playscript and was immediately sucked in. I just spent the past couple of hours reading the whole thing. I’ve seen the movie two or three times, starring Hepburn and O’Toole, but this script contains it all and carries it all on paper, without pictures or voices or music.

Whew. So much for my funny line.

Anyway, sorry, out of context it isn’t even very funny.

There are a couple of lines in O Brother, Where Art Thou (one of my go-to movies for beating a bad mood) that I laugh aloud at every time, but I guess they’re not too funny out of context either.

@janbb, “Damn! We’re in a tight spot. Damn! We’re in a tight spot.”
“You two are dumber than a bag of hammers.”
“Oh, George, not the livestock!”
Also the line where George Cooney nearly cracks up delivering it—the one about remaining unaffiliated.
But I guess they all require context, don’t they?

@Jeruba We should watch it together sometime !
