!!Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''
[[caption-width-right:350:[[RealityEnsues After all those years with no outside contact, it seems he forgot basic etiquette.]]]]

* The fact that Gaston first sings his love for Belle, he does it while pointing a gun at her. [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace So much for best hunter.]]
** Also in Gaston's part of "Belle", he's so busy looking at himself in the mirror that he doesn't notice Belle walk past, or [=LeFou=]'s attempt to alert him to this.
* "Belle" contains the lines "Never part of any crowd/'Cause her head's up on some cloud". The second line is sung by a barber... who's so busy singing about Belle that [[HypocriticalHumor he doesn't notice he's just cut off a man's mustache]].
* When Cogsworth and Lumiere are giving Belle a tour, the knight statues are checking her out.
-->'''Cogsworth:''' ''As you were!''
** Belle's conversation with Lumiere and Cogsworth beforehand (after she has been treated to a production number by a singing candlestick and a veritable platoon of dancing tableware):
-->'''Belle:''' I couldn't possibly sleep now! It's my first time in an enchanted castle!\\
'''Cogsworth:''' ''(laughing nervously as a fork skitters by on its tines)'' ''Enchanted?'' Who said anything about the castle being enchanted? ''(to Lumiere)'' It was ''you'', wasn't it?! ''(they fight)''\\
'''Belle:''' ''(amused)'' I... figured it out myself.
* Belle, aware that [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer the townsfolk]] are gossiping about her, looks to her father for reassurance:
-->'''Belle:''' Papa...do you think I'm odd?\\
'''Maurice:''' ''(emerges from underneath his latest invention wearing a bizarre contraption on his head)'' My daughter, ''odd''? Where would you get an idea like ''that''?
** Just look at Maurice's face after a hunk of wood clonks him when it's thrown from his chopping machine. Pure hilarity.
** Listen carefully, and you'll hear glass shattering just after one of the logs goes flying.
* Belle and the Beast's argument over dinner. The immaturity of them both is what sells it, from the Beast's BigWhat, to his forced politeness and Belle's retorts.
** The way the scene cuts from the Beast to his servants. Their reactions turn it from "terrifying chimera in a rage" to "RoyalBrat throwing a tantrum".
--> '''Beast:''' You'll come out, or I'll... I'll break down the door!
--> '''Lumiere:''' Master, I could be wrong, but that may not be the best way to win the girl's affections.
--> '''Cogsworth:''' Please, ''attempt'' to be a gentleman.
** For added hilarity, someone interpreted how that scene would go with [[http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs27/i/2008/092/f/5/Beast_Prince_Adam___Resubmit_by_doomimus.jpg the prince.]]
** The Beast says Belle's being so difficult, but tries to ask her to dinner again and when she says no again, he points at the door and looks at his servants while giving them a "You see?" look.
** The best part is that it's a [[Series/TheHoneymooners Honeymooners]] ShoutOut.
** "Fine! Then go ahead and...[[NoIndoorVoice STAAAAARRRRRVVVVVEEEEE!!!!]]"
** The aftermath: the Beast slams a door so hard some ceiling plaster falls on Lumiere, Mrs. Potts anxiously remarks that "That didn't go very well, did it?", and Cogsworth resignedly heads downstairs so they can start cleaning up.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_82x9nLzj4 This adaptation]] takes it UpToEleven, complete with the Beast throwing a childish temper tantrum.
*** And then there's Belle's snarky comment after it, after she asks him why he's being such a bully: "So, you ''admit'' you're being a bully?"
*** Earlier in that adaptation, after the Beast points out how beautiful Belle is and how ugly he is, Lumiere remarks, "He has a point."
*** There's also Lumiere interrupting the Beast's freak-out. Made doubly hilarious with, as per Lumiere, the over-the-top French accent.
-->'''Beast:''' Well, how's this for 'rude'? If you don't come down, I will GRAB YOU BY THE HAIR AND DRAG YOU ALL THE WAY--
* When Belle first meets Cogsworth properly, he's courteously introducing himself when Lumiere butts in. The way he says ''"This is Lumiere,"'' tells you just about everything you need to know about these two.
* "Be Our Guest" was hilarious on its own, especially all the torment Cogsworth went through, but one line in particular is especially hilarious.
-->'''Cogsworth:''' ''(almost in sync with the music whilst a group of featherdusters are dancing ever closer to him)'' Oh, gee, darn. Fun's over. Over here. ''([[OhCrap realizes they're not stopping]])'' Line up, now! Aaaahhh! ''(runs for it)''
** The stage version of this moment is even better: "[[LastChorusSlowDown OH NO! NOT THE KICKLINE!!!]]"
* The Beast is trying to think up something nice to do for Belle. Cogsworth brainstorms: "Well, there's the usual things: flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep..."
** Bonus points for that last part being a ThrowItIn ad-lib by David Ogden Stiers.
* The porridge-eating scene. Beast trying to eat with a spoon is hilarious!
* Beast getting his hair cut for the big dance scene. First time it's finished:
-->'''Lumiere:''' Oh, you look so...so... ''(struggling to find the word)''\\
'''Beast:''' ''(completely deadpan with an over-the-top hairstyle)'' Stupid.\\
'''Lumiere''': Err...not quite the word I was looking for, but, uh... Perhaps, er...a little more over the top.
** What makes it even funnier is that it's the [[ShoutOut same hairstyle that was given to the Cowardly Lion in]] ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''.
** That bathing scene is pretty funny too, considering that the Beast shakes like a dog to dry himself.
* Cogsworth complaining to Lumiere, again.
-->'''Cogsworth:''' Couldn't keep quiet, could we? Just had to invite him to stay? Serve him tea! Sit in the master's chair! Pet the pooch!
-->'''Lumiere''': I was trying to be hospitable!
** Lumiere doing the "blablabla" motion with his candlestick.
* The moment when Beast tells her to join him for dinner when she's shown her room.
-->'''Beast:''' You will join me for dinner... THAT'S NOT A REQUEST! ''(door slams and dramatic music starts)''
** And later, trying to control his temper while talking to Belle through the bedroom door:
-->'''Beast''': But she's being so ''difficult''!
** Then:
-->'''Beast:''' ''(through clenched teeth)'' It would give me ''great... pleasure''... ''(the fur begins to stand up on the back of his neck)'' ...if you would ''JOIN'' me for ''DINNER!''
-->'''Cogsworth''': [[CoughSnarkCough Ahem-ahem-ahem-ahem-wesayplease.]]
-->'''Beast''': '''Please.'''
* Gaston's vision of his future life:
-->'''Gaston:''' Here, picture this: A rustic hunting lodge, my latest kill roasting on the fire, and my little wife massaging my feet, while the little ones play on the floor with the dogs. We'll have six or seven.
-->'''Belle:''' [[ObfuscatingStupidity Dogs?]]
** The entire attempt at a proposal by Gaston is glorious, as he's blissfully unaware of Belle's extreme disinterest, which isn't helped by the fact that she never actually says no until she lets him out. (By which we mean "dumps him out the door".)
* [[ExactWords "All right, old man! We'll help you out!"]]
* In the battle against the mob, ''Cogsworth'' of all people [[NotSoAboveItAll laughing maniacally with a pair of scissors in one hand and a gun in the other, and a general's hat on his head]] is pretty damn hilarious.
** Also, in the battle, the wardrobe traps on of the villagers inside her and dresses him up in... [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid a red wig and a purple bra!]]
*** The stage show has the wardrobe carrying a spear, wearing a Viking battle helmet, and belts out a high note to an already terrified Le Fou.
* The scene where Belle dresses the Beast's wound after the wolf attack. The Beast licks his wound like a dog, then tries to dodge Belle's attempts to clean it with a ridiculously scared expression, his previously-terrifying roar becomes [[NightmareRetardant a childlike tantrum over the stinging wet cloth]], and he and Belle bicker {{Like an Old Married Couple}}, blaming each other for his injury, before the scene finally ends in a tender [[HeartwarmingMoments Heartwarming Moment]]. The facial expressions the Beast makes when he and Belle are arguing are hilarious, especially when he's positively dumbfounded that she's telling him off and can't think of anything to say.
-->'''Beast:''' Well, if you hadn't run away, this wouldn't have happened.\\
'''Belle:''' If you hadn't frightened me, I wouldn't have run away!\\
'''Beast:''' ''(lost for words)'' ...Well, ''you'' shouldn't have been at the west wing!\\
'''Belle:''' Well, ''you'' should learn to [[IronicEcho control your temper]]!
** The stage musical adds another moment to this scene that's absolutely hilarious: Belle puts the rag on the Beast's wound, and instead of roaring like in the movie, the Beast screams ''like a five-year-old girl.'' What follows is usually a loud round of laughs from the audience as the Beast awkwardly rubs at his temples until he finally murmurs "That hurt."
* Pretty much all of 'Gaston', but especially the lyric "I use antlers in all of my dec-o-rating!" and the accompanying visual.
** These lines after throwing Maurice out of the tavern:
-->'''Gaston:''' ''[=LeFou=], I'm afraid I've been thinking.''
-->'''[=LeFou=]:''' ''[[ThisIsGonnaSuck A dangerous pastime-]]''
-->'''Gaston:''' ''I know.''
** Even the DarkReprise is [[RefugeInAudacity hilarious]].
-->''Nooooooo ooonnnnne''
-->''Plots like Gaston!''
-->''Takes cheap shots like Gaston!''
-->''No one persecutes harmless crackpots like Gaston!''
* Gaston pausing while proposing to Belle to check out his reflection in the mirror. And the fish eye effect of him when Belle peers out the door to see who it is when he comes to her house to propose.
** There's also Belle rejecting Gaston by opening her door and letting him fall into the mud head-first with his butt sticking out after saying "I just don't deserve you!"
*** If you look closely, she waves after him as he topples out the door.
*** Even funnier in the stage version, where he responds to this with "Who does?" This is after a song where he says that women are "occasionally" useful "mainly for extending the family tree", and that "we will be the perfect pair, rather like my thighs".
*** Gaston's proposal song in the musical (aptly titled "Me") ends with him asking Belle "So Belle, what will it be? Is it "yes" or is it... "oooohhhhh, YES!"
* The Bimbettes [[EverybodyCries crying]] at Gaston's "wedding" ceremony for Belle because they are in love with him.
** What makes it is the contrast to what happened beforehand; Gaston thanks everyone gathered for coming to the wedding reception he's set up in front of Belle's house, and adds jokingly, "But first I'd better propose to the girl!" which makes everyone laugh. Cut to the Bimbettes.
* The Bimbettes "accidentally" spraying [=LeFou=] with water after he goes gaga over them. One of them actually used her heaving bosom to push down on the water pump.
* After the song "Something There", Mrs. Potts doesn't want to answer Chip's question.
--->'''Mrs. Potts:''' [singing] There may be something there that wasn't there before.
--->'''Chip:''' ''What's'' there, Mama?
--->'''Mrs. Potts:''' Shh. [[TheTalk I'll tell you when you're older]].
* Cogsworth telling the Beast that Belle isn't coming down to dinner.
--> '''Beast:''' Well? Where is she?\\
'''Cogsworth:''' Who? Oh, the girl! ''(starts getting nervous)'' Yes, the...girl. Well, actually, she's in the process of, uh...circumstances being what they are...she's not coming.\\
'''Beast:''' ''([[{{Beat}} after a beat]])'' '''''[[BigWhat WHAT?!!??!?]]'''''
** Even before that, when the door opens, but before it reveals Cogsworth instead of Belle, the Beast's face could only be described as that of a teenage girl on prom night.
* When the Beast attempts to move Belle from the tower to her own room, it's his stuttering that sells it.
-->'''Beast:''' Come, I'll show you to your room.
-->'''Belle''' My room?
-->'''Beast:''' You wan-You wanna stay in the tower?
-->'''Belle''': No...
-->'''Beast''': Then follow me.
** "Fixed" in the 2002 Platinum Edition, but re-instated for the 2010 Diamond Edition.
* Anything with Gaston when he's not being sadistically creepy. Something about his ego and the way he talks with pride over the assumption that if he wants something then he deserves it is hilarious.
** Funniest part is this, after [=LeFou=] makes fun of Belle's father (which Gaston found hilarious):
--> '''Belle:''' Don't talk about my father that way!
--> '''Gaston:''' [[HypocriticalHumor Yeah! Don't talk about her father that way]]! ''(bonks [=LeFou=] on the head)''
** His first line in the movie. It's so transparently asshole-ish that it's just hilarious.
--> '''[=LeFou=]:''' Whoa, you didn't miss a shot, Gaston. You're the greatest hunter in the whole world.
--> '''Gaston:''' I know.
** Gaston suggesting to Belle to stop reading and pay attention to more important things. Namely him. Cue Bimbettes going '[[SighOfLove Aaaahhh...]]'.
** When Gaston talks about reading being not right for a woman, [[StrawMisogynist as it can lead to her thinking]], he makes it sound like thinking is a disease and he is concerned about Belle's health.
* There's also the line from the commentary: "If you scratch your DVD cover, you can take a whiff of the Beast's room!"
** The impressions they do of the failed Beast audtions are also hilarious.
* The Beast's face when Belle leans on his chest during the ballroom scene, as well as Cogsworth's and Lumiere's reactions.
* "Mama, do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?"
** The adorable look on Chip's face when he asks makes it even better. Even his mother giggles!
* In the musical, Gaston's solo, Me, is hilarious. A combination of EvilIsHammy and ItsAllAboutMe in one VillainSong!
** A meta example that makes this even more hilarious: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVK6Jx6fw08 Hugh Jackman's most embarrassing moment]].
* Gaston grabbing Belle's book and asking how she can read it when it doesn't even have any pictures. Made funnier by the fact that it actually ''does'' have pictures, it's just that it's an illustrated storybook with a lot of text.
** Even funnier is that Gaston is holding the book sideways, as if he was expecting an anachronistic Creator/{{Playboy}} centerfold picture.
* [=LeFou=] standing to the side and singing "Kill the Beast" as the villagers are ramming down the castle doors.
* [=LeFou=] conducting the band:
-->'''Gaston:''' Now when Belle and I come out that door-\\
'''[=LeFou=]:''' Oh! I know! I know! I strike up the band!\\
''(cue fast tempo version of "Here comes the Bride" which is then CutShort by Gaston throwing a tuba on [=LeFou's=] head)''\\
'''Gaston:''' Not yet!\\
'''[=LeFou=]:''' Sorry!
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EacQmQFzzfo Add any song]] to the clip of Lefou and the band, and it'll be funny.
** It's shown that he's still conducting the band after Gaston is thrown into the mud.
--->'''[=LeFou=]:''' So, how'd it go?\\
'''Gaston:''' ''(grabs [=LeFou=] by his shirt)'' I'll ''have'' Belle for my wife. [[TheDeterminator Make no mistake about that!]]\\
''(Gaston throws him on the mud)''\\
'''[=LeFou=]:''' Hmm, touchy!\\
'''Pig:''' ''(agreeing with [=LeFou=])'' *snort, snort*
* During Belle and the Prince's dance, Lumiere and Cogsworth get into a fight, each claiming he was the one who knew it would work out in the end. Clearly Cogsworth was mostly skeptical during the film.
-->'''Cogsworth''': ''(Shakes Lumiere's hand in truce)'' Well, Lumiere, old friend, shall we let bygones be bygones?\\
'''Lumiere:''' Of course, mon ami. I ''told'' you she would break the spell!\\
'''Cogsworth:''' I beg your pardon, old friend, but I believe ''I'' told ''you''.\\
'''Lumiere:''' No, you didn't. ''I'' told ''you''!\\
'''Cogsworth:''' ''(pushes Lumiere)'' You most certainly did not, you pompous, paraffin-headed peabrain!\\
'''Lumiere:''' En garde, you... you overgrown pocket watch! ''(slaps his face with a glove and the two begin fighting again)''
** They waited until ''after'' they'd changed back before trading some worthy insults.
* During 'Something There', Belle ducks behind a tree while the Beast feeds some birds, in order to get a gauge on the sudden new feelings she has about him. She peeks back around the tree -- ''to find him with birds perching all over him.''
** She then throws a snowball right into his face after the birds fly off. When he attempts to get back by making a large snowball in his arms, she hits him with another, causing him to to throw the large snowball into the air, which then lands right back on him.
*** Combined with Heartwarming is the Beast's face when he makes his giant snowball. Instead of being angry, it's a playful "Oh now you're going to get it!" expression.
* In the stage play, Lumiere and Cogsworth are commiserating over the prospects of being cursed forever, when Belle arrives and passes by looking for Maurice. The following exchange is often played as such:
-->'''Lumiere:''' Oh, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight it's a girl.]]\\
'''Cogsworth:''' I can ''see'' it's a girl.\\
'''Both:''' ''It's a '''girl'''!!!''
* When Belle tells [[BookDumb Gaston]] to use his imagination, Gaston has a look on his face like he had never thought of that before.
* In the musical, during the 'Beauty and the Beast' sequence:
--> '''Belle:''' Dance with me?\\
'''Beast:''' Oh, I don't know-\\
'''Lumiere and Cogsworth: DANCE WITH HER!!!'''
** Earlier in that scene, when Belle first arrives, Lumiere and Cogsworth urge the Beast to "say something" about her dress. He addresses her very politely... and gives this:
--> '''Beast:''' Belle, your dress... it's blue!
--> '''Lumiere and Cogsworth:''' ''Compliment'' it!
* Belle attempting to defend Maurice:
-->'''Belle:''' My father's not crazy! He's a genius! [''cue explosion'']\\
[''Belle runs back home as Gaston and [=LeFou=] laugh'']
* A tiny moment that will go unnoticed unless you watch the film dozens of times, but in "Be Our Guest", Belle's chair is all ready to tie a napkin around her neck. Belle intercepts the napkin and puts it in her lap instead. The chair puts its arms at its sides in a clear gesture of "Well I never!" See this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afzmwAKUppU&t=0m26s here]].
* When Maurice first meets Lumiere and Cogsworth, his first reaction is to pick up Cogsworth and fiddle with the talking clock, trying to figure out how can this be. He shakes Cogsworth up and down, twists his dial (causing some comic pain for Cogsworth), and then tries to get at his pendulum. The brief cut to Lumiere's snickering just sells it.
-->'''Cogsworth:''' Sir! Close that at ''once!'' Do you ''mind?''
* During Gaston's meeting with Monsieur d'Arque, Lefou adds some levity to the serious scene, by chimming in with a couple of jabs. At Gaston's expense, no less.
-->'''Gaston''': Belle would to anything to keep him (Maurice) from being locked up.\\
'''Lefou''' ''[laughs]'': Yeah. Even marry ''him'' ''[points at Gaston]''.
* A meta example. When Tony Jay auditioned for the film, since his character had so few lines, he ended up saying all of them in his audition. He got the part, but the filmmakers saw no reason to bring him back seeing how he had already recorded all of his lines.
* Another meta-example. Throughout the show's Broadway run, whenever the actor playing Gaston came out for the curtain call, he was heartily booed by the audience -- and he ''loved'' it. The FridgeBrilliance of this being that it's really a testimony to how terrific a job he did playing such a loathsome character.
* Yet another meta-example; [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZS4Rvm6NCg according to]] Creator/AndreasDeja, the animators held a contest to decide how Gaston's chest hair would be drawn!
* During the opening song, a merchant [[MaleGaze looks at a woman's cleavage]] as they exchange hellos. The woman then asks, "How is your wife?", upon which [[HenpeckedHusband the merchant's angry wife smacks him with a rolling pin]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4gMJynUqCI Beauty and the Beast As Told By Emoji]] makes amusing use of [=iPhone=]-like interface and apps to help tell the story, such as the Enchantress turning the battery meter into the rose, Beast taking Belle to a "library" of [=eBooks=] (each of which has the same title as another Disney movie), and [[spoiler:Belle's declaration of love activating an OS update from "Beast" to "Prince".]]
* "''There's just one guy in town / Who's got all of it down... / And his name's G-A-S... T... G-A-S-T-E... G-A-S-T-O... ohh, ow... GASTON!!!''"
* The stage show features Lumiere and Cogsworth conversing about their coworkers. Then this happens.
--> '''Lumiere''': Do you remember Jacques?
--> '''Cogsworth''': Jacques?
--> '''Lumiere''': The one who is dumb as...
--> '''Cogsworth''': (in a tone of realization) A brick?
--> '''Lumiere''': The whole wall!
* One of the Gaston stage actors being told he was going to be cast in the Beauty and the Beast stage musical, and wondering if he was going to play Belle in drag because he felt he was too short for the Beast and not muscular enough for Gaston.
* One of the Belle stage actresses being cheered on by a little girl when she slapped Gaston.
* During the "Gaston" song number, after Gaston spits and the villagers sing "10 points for Gaston," three of them hold up score-cards. Two of them are 10s, but one is a 9.8
* From the song "No Matter What" in the stage show...
-->'''Maurice''': ''No, we're not odd, it's true / No fam'ly ever saner / Except one uncle who... Well, maybe let that pass.''
