    Any scenes in movies that make you laugh every time?

    Some that make me laugh ever time include...

    In City Lights, the "nude statue" scene. Chaplin's reaction when the sidewalk elevator starts going down is priceless...as is the part where that worker gets "taller"

    The train scene in O Brother Where Art Thou? "Any of you boys smithys?"

    The entire opera sequence in A NIGHT AT THE OPERA. Eating the shoe in THE GOLD RUSH. William Powell pretending to be a great fly fisherman in LIBELED LADY. Playing hide and seek with the terrier (Asta) in THE AWFUL TRUTH. The Public Service Announcement in THE GROOVE TUBE. The underground garage sequence with dog in high heels from BOWFINGER. Oh, so many...

    Put the Candle back in Young Frankenstein

    Spencer Tracy getting the hit by the kitchen door during the song Farewell Amanda in Adam's Rib

    It's every man for himself, including the old bag in It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

    Lots of scenes in Planes, Trains & Automobiles, like when he's washing his face and then dries it off with a 'towel'.

    And for some reason I always laugh during Mary Poppins during the song I Love to Laugh when Dick Van Dyke is going through the different kinds of laughs and at the end he makes this face. It just gets me every time.

    That's off the top of my head. There are LOTS more.

    I'm a big Bill Murray fan. Everytime I watch The Man Who Knew Too Little, Groundhog Day, What About Bob?, Quick Change, Ghostbusters, etc., I always laugh. I love his humor. [​IMG]

    Dialog from two great scenes:

    Cop and the beer bottles: "tic tac sir?" "get the hell outta here!"

    Beginning of G2: "occasionally you meet a nice one.. starman, E.T, but usually it turns out to be some kinda big lizard!"

    This Is Spinal Tap.
    Marty: This tasteless cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth of this band cannot even be charted. They are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry.
    Nigel: That's just nitpicking, isn't it?
    ---
    David: Dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported.

    Even though I'm not a big fan of When Harry Met Sally, I still love the orgasm scene.

    -"The Blues Brothers" had great lines. The cop notification to "Soothe Me" and "Did you get me my Cheez Whiz, boy?" are great lines.
    -"Airplane!"-"What's our vector, victor?"..."Don't call me Shirley"...any scene with Stephen Stucker (great character actor. Died of AIDS in '86[​IMG] )
    -"Animal House"-The food fight and the troubador scene ("I gave my love a story that had no end", then a guitar smash. "Sorry!")
    -"Trading Places"-The "Stone Groove", "Quart Of Blood", "Those men wanted to have sex with me", the confrontation with Beeks on the New Years train...
    -"This Is Spinal Tap"-"Stupid and clever" and the "Smell The Glove" controversy...
    -"Victor/Victoria"-Victoria's apprehension at becoming a man and Robert Preston's simple answer, and any scene with Lesley Ann Warren.
    -"Wayne's World"-The entire movie.
    -"S.O.B"-The Viking Funeral, "Polly-Wolly-Doodle", "I was an addict", the deal-making scene between Robert Vaughn and Richard Mulligan.
    -"Back To The Future"-Huey Lewis' cameo, all culture shock from all characters.
    Sincerely,
    John "Trading Places and S.O.B, I want these films on DVD" Kilduff

    The scene in Bringing Up Baby where Katharine Hepburn's dog runs off with Cary Grant's priceless dinosaur fossil and buries it. I laugh myself silly every time I see that... [​IMG]

    Nurse: "Can I help you uhh...doctor ..uhh"
    Fletch: "Oh, it's me Dr. Rosenpenis"
    Nurse: "Dr. who?"
    Fletch: "uhh it's Dr. Rosenrose"
    Fletch
    ================================================== ==========
    Fletch as he pulls up to his inherited Plantation:
    Amanda: " Not as grand as some of the others around here"
    Fletch: "Aw it ain't so bad, a little spackling and some napalm, and it'll make a nice mausoleum."
    When Fletch gets thrown in jail:
    Fletch: "Whatcha in for Ben?"
    Ben Dover: "Molesting a dead horse"
    Fletch: "Aw there ain't no crime in that, it's your right as an american, I'm trying to cut down myself"
    Fletch Lives
    ================================================== ==========
    Both Fletch movies crack me up constantly.

    No one makes me laugh harder than Danny Kaye
    Wonder Man
    Danny Kaye singing Dark Eyes in Russian while sneezing.
    Cout Jester
    "The Flagon with the Dragon is the brue that is true..."
    All this stuff being recited by Kaye and his enemy as Kaye's magnetic armor keeps making him lean into the huge knight.

    Raising Arizona: "We released ourselves on our own recognizance. We felt institutional life had nothing left to offer."

    His Girl Friday: "What's he look like boss?" "Like that guy in the movies, you know, Ralph Bellamy!"

    Steamboat Bill Jr./Our Hospitality/The General/Sherlock Jr.: Basically everything Buster Keaton does.

    The Lady Eve: The poker scene.

    Some Like It Hot: "Why would a guy want to marry another guy?" "Security!"
