Their 'laughing their asses off' reaction is priceless when the amazon tells them about amazon basketball and how, although they can't slamdunk, their basketball is more entertaining because it has better 'fundamentals'.

"It was about three straight guys raising three girls in San Francisco. That was my tag back then."
"Why didn't they anyone tell us about our hair? I had big poufy hair like Joyce DeWitt."
And my favorite: "Tune in tonight for a Very Special Episode, in which Uncle Jesse gets diarrhea."

Dave's show is on VERY late here in the UK so I only see it when I get home from a night shift, but I saw them do Oprah with Jennifer Aniston last night and it nearly made me fall off my sofa. Those guys are brilliant. I think it was the cig hanging out of the little guy's mouth that did it. I will never think of Rachael the same way again.

Grace is dating someone with six toes, and in the Toy Store, Karen makes this.. circus noise. That just cracked me up.
Anything with Jack in it. Especially when he gets hooked on coffee.
Episode where Will is trying to get to a Barry Manilow concert. Karen likes the songs, and then at the end Grace sings. Its funneh.

I don't remeber these being posted here before, but in the episode where Will finds out his dad is cheating on his mother (aaaages ago), and Grace first sees his dad and his girlfriend together at 'Suessical: The musical'. Grace is out with her date, and when she's finished talking to Will's dad and his date, and they go back inside, she says to her date "Is there anything worse than a married man sheating on his wife?". He just looks at her and says "Oh. I should go.", and leaves. Hil.Arious. It's all in the delivery. May not sound so funny written down, though.
Also on W&G, Jack and Karen are in a waiting room together, and there are some helium ballons. So Jack breathes in the neck of one, and speaks with his helium voice. Karen goes "Oooh! Let me have a go!", and breathes in deeply. Then she says "Hello", but she's still got the same voice! And Jack starts rolling around laughing on the floor. Karen says "How do I sound, how do I sound", and Jack says "Oh, you sound so wierd". Hee. Love that show.

Then he asked for it in black and white, and the camera duly obeyed.
All the while talking about how horrible and over-exposed the controversy was.

I was just reminded, in the Joan of Arcadia forum of all places, of a line from M.A.S.H. that still makes me giggle. Col. Flagg is trying to intimidate Charles and pronounces Charles's sister's name, Honoria, as "Hon-a-ree-a."
I don't know why, it just makes me laugh.

I think that part of the reason that it's funny is that it rhymes with . . . oh, I don't know . . . something beginning with "g" . . .

While the message may be overly obvious, I can't help but crack up every time. Great perspective on the blowhards who infest our airwaves.

"I'm made of felt... And by doze cobes off."
"I do not have puppet cancer!"
And on, and on...

- Bosco turning the table on his muggers, and making them strip before taking off, then turning green when he sees them in the station hysterically trying to describe him. The entire sub-plot from there, from Bosco dragging Faith into the stalls and trying to rationalise what he did, the toilet flushing, Bosco freezing and then with narrowed eyes 'I thought I told you to check the stalls' he accuses Faith / 'I didn't know you were gonna confess to armed robbery!' So now Ty and Sully are in the know, and they could not be more perfect as foils. The 4 of them looking at the sketch artists drawing of a glowering Bosco on the bullettin board has me laughing now.
- Also on 3rd Watch when the retard who has a 'crush' on Bosco steals the cop car, and Faith and him hitch a ride with 2 other cops, and give chase. Whatever Bosco yells at him 'pull over' 'shaddup' the guy is sincerely trying to imitate him and is squeaking back.
- In ER Carter (oh so earnestly and wide-eyed which is what brings the funny) knocking his head against the glass door to get Benton's attention, because he's already scrubbed up. Benton is in the midst of a romantic conversation and is just glancing up irritatedly at this, and when he finally does leave he stalks right through the door pushing it through so hard it knocks Carter's head right back. Bwah!
- In Stargate's time loop ep, Daniel casually suggesting that they could do anything without consequences, and Jack and Teal'c looking at eachother, doing an about turn and walking out of the lesson.
- In Malcolm in the Middle, it still can be funny and hasn't jumped the shark, but my god in the earlier seasons it was genius. When Francis has been playing the boys against eachother competing for the tickets, and then takes a girl, and a slip falls out of the sunvisor reading 'you will pay'. He smirks 'amateurs'. Then the whole pulling over by cop cars as the car's been reported stolen, and when Francis is rolling his eyes 'officer I can explain' he finds in his wallet 'it gets worse'. The cop hears a hammering coming from the boot and there's Mal and Reese trussed and gagged.

Also in "Bad Blood," Scully's lustful "HOO-boy!" upon seeing Luke Wilson (Sheriff Hartwell).
AKA my "You've got mail!" sound.
Most of my other favorites have already been mentioned, but her y'are:
Whose Line: "Tapioca!" And uber-word on Ryan breaking the neon. I nearly wet myself.
Wetbiscuit McLee! And I don't remember exactly what it was, but they got Colin to dance on one of the Greatest Hits things. I was in tears.
MST3K: Space Mutiny! My God, that kills me every time.
Coupling: Oh lord, where to begin? Every episode ever, and every word Jeff has ever said.
People have mentioned the Stargate SG-1 with the time loop, but nobody's given a nod to my favorite bit: Jack strides into the base in civilian dress and announces that he's handing in his resignation. Hammond demands to know why, and Jacks responds, "So I can do this," and grabs Sam and kisses her. Time loop flash back to the beginning of the day, and Sam giving some uninteresting presentation. She pauses: "Commander, is something wrong?" Cut to Jack, wearing the smuggest little grin in the history of television. "No, nothing at all."
Will & Grace, when Will sneaks Leo home early and is trying to keep Grace from finding out, but she's beginning to realize something's going on: "(gasps) You're wearing your short robe! (gasps louder) I smell orange juice! (gasps so loud she probably injures her lungs) I have no idea what this all means!"

Woman, slowly: "How do you spell relief?"
Guy gets sheepish look on his face: "F - A - R - T!"
Question: "In my house, the electricity travels from the WHERE to the WHERE?"
Woman blurts out: "From the plug to the vibrator?"
And Bob Eubanks having Ben Stein list the surprising things you are allowed to say on the air - he keeps going and going.
Bob: "OK, that's enough now."
Stein, deadpan: "Bueller, Bueller."

And then in the middle of the song they switched and did a "James Brown Version" of You are my Sunshine with that kid from Code Mercury doing these hillarious James Brown noises. Just that combined with Will Smith in body suit and yellow petals on his head made me laugh so hard I was crying!
*Ehum*, why yes, I've seen every episode of Fresh Prince at least twice, heh.

The monologue Steve gave the gang during dinner about what men are about
"potpourri; looks like breakfast, smells like your granny". Funniest sentence ever!
Posted May 11, 2004 @ 9:20 AM
Ha! That kid sounded like he had something stuck in his throat. That was a great episode.
And a few days ago I ran across an old episode of Three's Company that has long been one of my favorites. It's the one where Jack takes Janet to a fancy party and he's high on tranquilizers. Then he drinks a "pick-me up" and starts to dance and spazz about. I remember cracking up over this as a kid and re-watching it, it's just as funny. John Ritter's physical comedy was pure genius.

Call me cruel, but the most unintentionally funny moment on TV had to be when Reva drove her car off the bridge into the ocean on Guiding Light. I didn't cry for Springfield's Slut. I laughed.
Not as hard as I laughed when the Learning Channel's "A Wedding Story", which chronicles the real life triumphs and so forth of 'ordinary' people's weddings, did a heavily promoted episode covering the third wedding of "Reva Shayne" and "Josh Lewis" and everything they went through to get together.
I never watched the actual episode, but the commercials, which acted as if this was all very real and very moving, cracked me up every time.

It's all pretty funny, really, if you ask me. That and Kim Zimmer's three Emmy Awards for getting through the muck.

Anchor guy 1 was narrating a "human interest" story about a couple of escaped cows rescued from a road or whatever, and as the video was going he was saying: "The cows, Black and Gus, I guess those are their names, were taken in to blahblahblah."
And at the end of the story they cut back to the desk and Anchor Guy 1 looks confusedly at Anchor Guy 2, who is trying to stifle some laughter. Anchor Guy 2: "Um, Jim. I'm wondering if maybe those were black Angus cows?"
Also, I recent promo for Crossing Jordan that I saw during The West Wing cracked me up, although it was trying to be dramatic and serious:
NBC dramatic V/O guy: "And on Crossing Jordan, one of the team is stalked..."
Character 1: "I thought you were stalking me!"
Character 2: "I thought you were stalking me!"
NBC V/O guy: "But...who is stalking who?!"
Me: I can't believe you're serious with that!

SNL again... The skit where David Alan Grier, Will Ferrell and Nancy Walls are hosting a live morning show, and the teleprompter dies. They're all terrified at the prospect of improvising/performing before the live camera without every word written out for them. They immediately start babbling, crying, and panicking. Then it gets worse.
In the space of 3-5 minutes, they've regressed to caveman. Will Ferrell challenges DAG for alpha male rights for the area (the studio). They start to fight and next thing you know, WF has ripped DAG's head off! A few seconds, later, the teleprompter is working again and there's WF with his shirt torn off, and DAG's bloody head in his hand. All this is going out to the viewing audience.
