** Colleen Dewhurst's reaction to this in the film is priceless. She asks how hard Anne smashed the slate and [[ActuallyPrettyFunny smirks when Anne replies "very hard, I'm afraid]]."

** The fact that Mrs. Lynde doesn't notice this...but Marilla does. She also realizes Anne's enjoying it, and yet figures she can hardly scold her for apologizing "too well".

* Anne accidentally getting Diana drunk. Though the consequences aren't funny, the event itself is. What she thought was raspberry cordial turned out to be currant wine, [[UnsuspectinglySoused and Diana drank three tumblerfuls of it]].Note that homemade wine back then was much more potent than we would assume today, as they had no way of regulating the alcohol content...

* Anne's first attempt at praying. And remember that the book was published in 1908, where this kind of humor about religion was a lot more shocking.

* Anne's BackhandedApology to Mrs. Lynde, making sure to slip in that all the insults she's apologizing for were true, but she still shouldn't have said them.

to:

* Anne, Marilla and Diana all put a spoonful of sugar in the pot of peas because each was afraid the others would forget about it. They only discover the truth when Anne tastes the peas. The narration goes on to note (paraphrased), "There were no peas at dinner that day."

* Whiskers-On-The-Moon gives an anti-war prayer at a prayer meeting organised to pray for the soldiers. Norman Douglas objects.
--> "You blatant beast!"—shake—"You malignant carrion"—shake—"You pig-headed varmint!"—shake—"you putrid pup"—shake—"you pestilential parasite"—shake—"you—Hunnish scum"—shake—"you indecent reptile—you—you—" Norman choked for a moment. Everybody believed that the next thing he would say, church or no church, would be something that would have to be spelt with asterisks; but at that moment Norman encountered his wife's eye and he fell back with a thud on Holy Writ. "You whited sepulchre!" he bellowed, with a final shake, and cast Whiskers-on-the-moon from him with a vigour which impelled that unhappy pacifist to the very verge of the choir entrance door.

!! Rilla of Ingleside
* Miranda and Joe's wedding. Miranda's father, Mr. Pryor [=AKA=] Whiskers-On-The-Moon, doesn't want Miranda to marry Joe because Joe's a soldier and Whiskers is a pacifist, so Rilla organises their wedding at Ingleside. The wedding is eventful; during the ceremony Miranda's dog has a fit, and at the reception Joe's mother sits on a pie!
** During the preparations for the wedding, Rilla asks Susan to make a wedding cake... ''before'' telling her about the wedding.
--> "A wedding-cake!" Susan stared. Rilla had, without any warning, brought her a war-baby once upon a time. Was she now, with equal suddenness, going to produce a husband?

** Gilbert's reaction to this.
--> "...Norman's performance was utterly improper and scandalous and outrageous; but, by George,"—the doctor threw back his head and chuckled, "by George, Anne-girl, it was ''satisfying''."

* Anne smashing the slate over Gilbert's head in DisproportionateRetribution for a comment about her hair. The line in the book clarifies that it was the slate that cracked, and not Gilbert's head.
* Anne tries to dye her hair Raven black. It ends up green.
