* [[Theatre/InTheHeights "How do you get this gold shit off?!"]]
** Also the origins of Usnavi's name, Usnavi chasing off Vanessa's aggressive suitors with ''a price gun'', or anything Sonny says ("She was my babysitter first!").
** "Does your cousin dance?" "Like a drunk Chita Rivera."

* ''RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'' has a ton, most of them playing on the {{metafiction}}, such as Ros yelling "FIRE" and wondering why no one's leaving their seats. But the best ones are Guildenstern waxing philosophical, only for Rosencrantz to take his musings completely literally:
--> '''Guil''': I'm him, you see.
--> '''Ros''': Who am I then?
--> '''Guil''': You're yourself.
--->'''Guil''': [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotDidactic Death is the ultimate negative. Not-being. You can't not-be on a boat.]]
--->'''Ros''': [[ComicallyMissingThePoint I've frequently not been on boats.]]

* The dialogue between the Wicked Witch of the West and the Winkie Leader in ''TheWizardOfOz''. It's arguably funnier than anything in [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the movie]]. To clarify, The Wicked Witch asks the Winkies [[LampshadeHanging why they always make a low brooding chant whenever they go anywhere.]]

** In "You Won't Succeed on Broadway", Sir Robin, his Minstrels and the Knight Chorus re-enact the Bottle Dance scene from ''FiddlerOnTheRoof''... with ''grails on their heads''. Robin's first mention of "if we don't have any Jews" is usually met with a full minute of laughter as well.
