* At the end of the tutorial level, the mysterious voice guiding Alan spouts a random phrase and asks if Alan understands, only to ignore him when he says no. The last time he shows up, he tells Alan that he "will let you have your dream back now." It's the delivery that makes it hilarious.
* If you listen to the radio interview when you first get to the cabin, the waitress from the diner will excitedly spill the beans on who the "famous artist" is. Alan's groan is hilarious.
* During the TV interview we see Alan do via {{Flashback}}, the other guest on the show is Remedy's Sam Lake. Lake, the original actor for Max Payne, is asked if he could "Do the face!". He replies by making a [[VideoGame/MaxPayne constipated expression]].
* The manuscript page "Alan Reads A Page" in which Alan...Reads that page. [[OverlyLongGag Predictable]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment hilarity]] [[ShapedLikeItself ensues]]. This would be merely funny to begin with, if it wasn't for [[LampshadeHanging Alan himself getting annoyed]].
-->'''Alan''': I lifted the page in front of my eyes and read it. In it, I lifted the page in front of my eyes and read it. In it...
* Finding Barry Wheeler wrapped in Christmas lights.
-->"For protection. Like garlic against vampires!"
** And the headlamp, don't forget the headlamp:
--> '''Alan:''' Hey. I want a headlamp!
--> '''Barry:''' Sorry Al, last one.
--> '''Alan:''' Bastard.
** Barry referring to his hard hat as his "flaming eye of Mordor". It's funnier in the strategy guide, where Alan and Sheriff Breaker cringe after he says it.
* Alan and Barry getting drunk off the Andersons' moonshine and drunkenly spouting nonsense about being able to write ten books a year and becoming booze millionaires, respectively. Overlaps with CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when Alan breaks down about Alice and Barry pats his head.
--> '''Alan:''' If I wanted to, I could write ten books a year. And they'd be the best books that year!
--> '''Barry:''' No you couldn't.
--> '''Alan:''' That's right, I couldn't. But I could. 'Cause I'm a ''writer!''
* Barry's Night Springs joke:
-->"When someone throws a damn school bus at your head, and you're about to take a ride with someone who may or may not have a pilot's license, you're cleared for departure... to ''Night Springs''!"
* When Alan exits a building at the Anderson farm, a Taken farmer springs out yelling "Stay away from my daughter!"
* Barry imitating Alan with the cardboard cutout.
** In fact, the cutout in general, because you can just tell that Alan loathes it and it follows him ''everywhere''.
*** [[FridgeBrilliance It even shows up in his nightmares!]]
* This exchange from The Signal:
-->'''Barry:''' Hey Al, I guess the pen's mightier than-
-->'''Alan:''' Finish that sentence and you're fired.
-->'''Barry:'''...mightier than the sword.
-->'''Alan:''' You're fired.
-->'''Barry:''' Aww...
** Another one from The Signal:
-->'''Alan:''' If this is [[spoiler:my mind]] then why is this so complicated?
-->'''Barry:''' [[{{Shaft}} 'Cause you're a complicated man and no one understands you-]]
-->'''Alan:''' Barry!
-->'''Barry:''' I'm just talking about-
-->'''Alan:''' Stop.
* A funny Taken line:
--> "''CHAINSAWS ARE NOISY!!!''"
** "OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS ARE GOOD FOR YOUR HEART!"
** "IT'S RABBIT SEASON!"
** "FISHING CAN BE A HOBBY AND A JOB!"
* Watch what happens to the parade float after it goes past you. The Dark Presence can parallel-park like a boss.
* The achievement description after you beat the first elite Taken.
-->[[spoiler:Nordic Walking: Unlike Stucky, you enjoy incontestable health benefits. Namely, you're not dead.]]
** The description before unlocking it is just as great.
-->[[spoiler: Take a walk through the logging area, meet one of the quirky locals.]]
* Most of Barry, really. He was written as the comic relief, and he comes through like a king.
** Even Imaginary Barry, who [[spoiler:turns into an antagonist]]:
--> It's great that you first make yourself an imaginary friend, and then you can't even get along with that guy! People skills, Al! You're a master.
** The fluctuating Taken voice only enhances the delivery.
* Pretty much everything said by the Anderson brothers, ever. It's like a nonstop parade of hilarity - especially once they go nuts on the lodge and trap the staff in the staffroom.
* One of the patients in Cauldron Lake Lodge is a slightly crazy video game developer. One of his rants starts about nightmares, but [[SeinfeldianConversation somehow]] turns into something about mullets.
-->"...but it wasn't supposed to be about mullets, and now it's about mullets, and when it's in slow motion, they call it '[[BulletTime Mullet Time]]' because..."
* Emma Sloan offering Alan a "herbal detox suppository."
* From ''American Nightmare'':
-->'''Emma:''' So... you might have brain damage, you're about to go to great things with a magic piece of paper, and you came here from another dimension?
-->'''Alan:''' No, I'm from New York. I was just visiting another dimension.
-->'''Emma:'''Oh, yeah, okay. My bad.
* The achievement for collecting all the manuscript pages in ''American Nightmare'' is called "One Day I'll Buy a Stapler".
* Mr. Scratch's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cEXYWJPMIA Super Effective Sales Trailer]]. Basically he goes on a killing spree at Remedy Entertainment's offices, {{Squee}}s over all the good reviews he's gotten, and then enslaves the game's lead writer (and a potted plant) so he can force them to write more games about him. He spends the entire trailer as a [[LargeHam hammy]] [[AttentionWhore attention grabbing bastard]]. It's the large amount of dark humor that makes this great.
** [[PokeThePoodle At 1:27 he flips off a poster of Alan and at the end he steals a bunch of snacks and stuffs them into his jacket.]] It's not that he steals the snacks, it's how he looks around to make sure he doesn't get caught.
** Mockingly: [[spoiler:[[SelfDeprecation "It's not a lake, it's an ocean. Ooooooooh"]]]]
** To make things better, Sam Lake responds to the demand to write by limply slapping the keyboard and falling unconscious/dead. The potted plant promptly falls over with a comedic timing that no plant should have.
* "I just wish these things would stop blatantly violating the laws of physics inside my observatory, it's just rude!"
* When you complete an arcade stage, sometimes the narrator might put on a deeper voice and say, "Because you won, I am speaking in a ''dramatic voice''."
* Some of the moments in Scratch's videos qualify. In the Barry recording, after spending the whole game talking about the horrible things he's planning to do to the people Alan loves, and the nightmare inducing actions he's done against the people in Night Springs, he declares that he'll keep Barry alive....[[EvilIsPetty so he can fire him.]]
-->'''Mr. Scratch:''' Yeeeep.
* Barry tries to convince Alan that he might be going crazy, because of all his talk about a Dark Presence. Once the Dark Presence goes after ''Barry'' and he complains about it on his cellphone, Alan shoots back that [[IronicEcho Barry should just relax because Alan's just going crazy]].
* Barry's "Night Springs" phone calls at the beginning of chapter 5.
