** What makes this even funnier is the voice actors: it's [[Series/MassEffect Shepard]] arguing with [[Series/SaintsRow Boss]], or alternately [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Bastila]] and [[Series/StreetFighter Chun Li]] going at it.

* It's in the middle of a tense moment (which may explain why players might find it amusing), but when Songbird is about to kill Booker and Elizabeth steps between them, Songbird's response is to gently push Elizabeth out of the way.

** Also:
--->'''Elizabeth:''' What if they catch us here?\\
'''Booker:''' We'll tell them we got lost looking for the bathroom.\\
'''Elizabeth:''' ... And that works?\\
'''Booker:''' Not usually.

* In the "Clash in the Clouds" DLC, one of the trophies you can earn is Rope-a-Dope. To earn it, [[spoiler:you have to use Undertow on an enemy to knock him off the city, use it again to rescue him... then knock him off again.]]
* In the Columbian Archeological Society, the [[http://i.imgur.com/b9TVNdg.jpg "Art Direction" concept art.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jp_vKoxJgyk This Video]] claims that Elizabeth is escorting YOU.

* When Elizabeth first sees the latest ''Dimwit & Duke'' automatic puppet show, she says [[SelfDeprecation "I hear this one was delayed three times!"]]



* A little bit of SnarkToSnarkCombat between Booker and Elizabeth in the elevator up to the First Lady Airship. Really, it's the perfect voice acting that sells it:
-->'''Elizabeth:''' How do you think they knew you'd be coming here?\\
'''Booker:''' Either they've got a prophet on their side \\
'''Elizabeth:''' Har har.\\
'''Booker:''' or them that hired me also wrote the signs.



* Rupert Cunningham's voxophone in which he claims that the Luteces were murdered by Comstock... then, matter-of-factly saying he knows [[MindScrew because the Luteces told him.]]



* Elizabeth can be extremely threatening [[spoiler: after she's accessed her powers and is leading Booker across the multiverse.]] Then you notice her [[MundaneUtility using her teleportation powers to get out of a five foot ladder climb]].



* Fighting a horde of giant mechanical George Washingtons... [[CoolVersusAwesome or siccing them on]] giant mechanical Abraham Lincolns.



* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qXDOejdids This]] video. While the moment itself is [[JumpScare quite terrifying]], the reactions to it are priceless. Though that video missed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=8v8WorTxpHA#t=188 the best one of all]].

** You know all of those songs you are hearing that are early 20th century renditions of songs that came along decades later? Turns out that Jeremiah Fink gets these songs through tears, then markets them as his own music, plagiarizing the artists through time travel. The example they give you of this is when you approach a tear in Fink's factory that is playing Credence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son". While the idea of Jeremiah stealing songs from the future to sell in his time is amusing enough, it gets even more amusing if you know about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fogerty_v._Fantasy the legal problems lead singer John Fogerty has had with record companies and copyright infringement claims]]. [[TheChewToy Poor John]], now he's getting screwed by a corporation that could claim copyright ''retroactively through time travel''. Sheesh!

* [[https://youtu.be/8wUgZLHD7Ds?t=5m47s "Cream?" "Or Sugar?"]]



* There is some humor to be found when Elizabeth is trying to have a meaningful conversation with you, and continues to speak as guns blaze all around her.

* Sometimes the game mechanics themselves cause the most fun. Elizabeth somberly regards the dozen of dead civilians left lying around in the wake of the Vox uprising, kneels by a dead man and saying, "Look at this one... do you think he wanted any of this?" You turn away as she leans over them, folds their hands and puts a rose in their hands... "Hey Booker, want some money? Catch!" She turfed the dead guy's pockets!
** This can happen during even bigger scripted events, such as Elizabeth talking to Lady Comstock's statue.
-->'''Elizabeth''': (To the statue) Rosalind Lutece is not [[spoiler:my mother]]... and neither are you. But he killed you both... because of- Wanna hold on to this? Catch!
