!!The book:
* "My name is Gregory Goyle and I smell." Written next to the entry on [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] for bonus points.
* The book's intro talks about how wizardkind sought to differentiate between "beings" and "beasts", with the first classification of a "being" being anything that walks on two legs. This subsequently leads to chaos at a meeting of all these "beings": trolls smash the place up, hags look for children to eat, and Augureys make a huge din. Ultimately, the wizard in charge of opening the meeting [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere runs cursing from the hall]] after slipping on some Porlock dung.
* This conversation scrawled on the first page:
-->'''Harry:''' This book belongs to Harry Potter.
-->'''Ron:''' Shared by Ron Weasley because his fell apart.
-->'''Hermione:''' Why don't you buy a new one then?
-->'''Ron:''' Write on your own book, Hermione.
-->'''Hermione:''' You bought all those Dungbombs on Saturday, you could have bought a new book instead.
-->'''Ron:''' Dungbombs ''rule''.
* And of course Janus Thickey's "last words", a scribbled note saying:
-->"Oh no, a Lethifold's got me, I'm suffocating"
** And later it turned out that he was actually [[spoiler:having an affair with a local barmaid]]. Naturally, his wife was not pleased.

!!The film:
* The trailer gives us [[SarcasmMode an epic battle of wits]] between [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy a Staten Island customs officer]] and Newt Scamander, [[BadLiar the worst liar in history.]]
-->'''Officer:''' First trip to America?
-->'''Newt:''' Yes.
-->''[One of the locks of Newt's [[BagOfHolding suitcase]] spontaneously opens, and Newt desperately tries to cover it up]''
-->'''Newt:''' ...I must get that fixed.
-->'''Officer:''' [[FailedASpotCheck Anything edible in there?]]
-->''[Newt quickly turns the switch on that makes his suitcase Muggle Worthy]''
-->'''Newt:''' [[HesitationEqualsDishonesty Um... uh... no. No.]]
-->'''Officer:''' [[DramaticIrony Any livestock?]]
-->''[Officer checks the suitcase and sees only normal contents]''
-->'''Newt:''' [[BlatantLies No.]]
-->'''Officer:''' ''[beat]'' Welcome to New York.
* A FreezeFrameBonus from the SpinningPaper montage that opens the movie:
-->'''Newspaper:''' Wizards baffled! Is soccer the No-Maj quiddich?
* The ending of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViuDsy7yb8M official teaser]] has Newt descend into his suitcase while Jacob watches with wide eyes, a mug halfway to his mouth. Then Newt whistles, his hand beckoning from the suitcase, and Jacob can only point at himself in bewilderment.
** Even better in the movie itself: when Newt climbs into his suitcase, Jacob lets out a loud, shocked "''PAHA!''" before Newt calls him over.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdgQj7xcDJo San Diego Comic-Con trailer]] shows us a magical beast going after Newt and a row of No-Maj policemen facing each other in a standoff... [[MoodWhiplash and then cuts to Newt and Jacob smiling and clapping like it's their reaction to the previous scene]].
* Tina explains the escape of the magical creatures to the MACUSA, then sets a briefcase on the floor and knocks on it. Newt emerges, only visible from the chest up.
* When Newt and Tina find Jacob, there is a brief discussion about wizard and No-Maj relations in America, with Newt mentioning that he finds the fact that they can't even ''marry'' No-Majs ridiculous. Tina's response is to point at Jacob and ask who would marry ''him''. [[FunnyBackgroundEvent Jacob, while bleary from the murtlap bite, still looks offended at this]].
* The Niffler. When it escapes from Newt's suitcase into a bank, Newt tracks it down to a bank vault, wallowing among the contents of a safe deposit box. He scoops it up, and it gives him a cute look -- then he turns it upside down and ''a small mountain of coins, jewels and gold bars'' falls out of its storage pouch. Then Newt tickles the Niffler to get more to fall out!
** Later, when it's escaped ''again,'' he and Jacob find it pilfering trinkets in a jewelry shop, [[https://theperpetualcreator.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/fantastic-beasts-niffler.gif?w=840 made even funnier when it tries to pose as a]] [[NobodyHereButUsStatues display dummy]] -- followed by Newt making a face that screams "''really?''" when he sees this. Newt proceeds to clamber all over the cases trying to retrieve it, smashing various articles, and at one point ends up ''swinging from the shop's chandelier''. Meanwhile Jacob's waiting outside, getting more and more nervous as the noise level rises - and then one of the catches on Newt's suitcase flips open, and something within ''roars.'' [[OhCrap Poor Jacob.]]
** And ''then'' the cops show up. Jacob, covered with jewelry from the store the niffler was rummaging through, points down the street and says, "[[ImplausibleDeniability They went that way officer]]".
* Newt's bizarre mating dance to lure the Erumpent toward him and away from the hippo.
** The Erumpent chasing Jacob across Central Park in an effort to mate with him. With a romantic score playing, to boot! And Jacob [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl Screaming Like A Little Girl]] as he runs.
** While Jacob deals with the Erumpent, a baboon steals Newt's wand, and he tries to get it back.
* On a meta level, Eduardo Lima, one of the graphic designers for this series as well as the Potter series, inserted the headline "No-Maj singer is a goblin" into one of the prop newspapers.
* Our protagonists enter ''The Blind Pig'' and need to dress up for the occasion. Tina and Queenie cast spells to give themselves {{Gorgeous Period Dress}}es. Then Newt waves his wand, and [[BaitAndSwitch all that happens is his loose bowtie re-ties itself]].
* When Newt and Jacob are in Tina and Queenie's apartment as the sisters prepare dinner, Newt's itching to leave and is heading for the door. Queenie curtails him by asking if he prefers pie or strudel. When he nervously says he doesn't have a preference, she turns to ask Jacob - who's already seated and tucking in a napkin, with an eager smile on his face.
** A small moment from the dinner discussion has Queenie mention that her job at MACUSA is so empty that she spends most of her time fetching coffee. [[{{Troll}} And jinxing the toilets]].
** This conversation between Tina and Queenie as they're setting the table, where Queenie learns what Tina had for lunch:
--->'''Queenie:''' Hotdog again?
--->'''Tina:''' Don't read my mind.
--->'''Queenie:''' [''disapprovingly''] Not a very wholesome meal, Teeny.
* When Queenie and Jacob try to break into Graves' office, she tries different unlocking charms to no avail and doesn't know what to do. Then [[MugglesDoItBetter Jacob]] just [[MundaneSolution kicks the door in]]...
* Newt objecting to Queenie naming Ilvermorny as the best magical school in the world, and defending Hogwarts' own claim.
-->'''Jacob''': Is there a school, a wizardry school, here in America?
-->'''Queenie''': Of course! Ilvermorny. It's only ''the'' best wizard school in the whole world!
-->'''Newt''': I think you'll find the best wizarding school in the world is Hogwarts.
-->'''Queenie''': Hogwash!
* [[spoiler: When Credence's Obscurus is rampaging around New York towards the end, Newt tries to go after him, giving his bag of magical creatures over to Tina to hold it for him before apparating off to find Credence. Tina holds it for a moment before handing it off to Queenie saying ''she'' needs to hold it so she can go after ''Newt''. Then ''Queenie'' [[RuleOfThree hands it over to Jacob and starts trying to go after Tina]] [[SubvertedTrope before Jacob stops her]].]]
* At the jewelry store, before the cops can apprehend Newt and his companions, a ''lion'' suddenly appears behind them, casually walking on the sidewalk.
-->'''Newt''': You know, New York is much more interesting than I expected!
** Another rather comical thing about this scene. Notice the weapons the cops are using. Each one has a shotgun. Thanks to that lion, we will never know if a muggle with a shotgun can defeat a wizard.
** And then as Newt and Jacob arrive in Central Park, an ostrich runs past them. The confused noise that Jacob makes is ''priceless''.
* After days of his beasts escaping his suitcase and wreaking havoc, Newt finally secures the suitcase better so none of them can escape again. [[MundaneSolution By tying it up with string]].
* Kowalski in the magic speakeasy has a taste of Giggle Water. Cue a sudden high-pitched laugh that left the audience rolling in the aisles.
** Then, in the midst of all the chaos of everyone fleeing, Kowalski makes a point to stop and drink another before leaving with the others. Cue another high-pitched laugh just before they Apparate.
** Before this, he arrives at the bar and asks if there's anyone who can get him a drink - not noticing the tiny house elf bartender. [[CriticalResearchFailure This exchange]] follows:
--->'''Bartender:''' What, ain'tcha ever seen a house elf before?
--->'''Jacob:''' Sure. I love house elves. [[SomeOfMyBestFriendsAreX My uncle's]] [[BlatantLies a house elf.]]
* This exchange, if only for Newt's blunt way of saying it:
-->'''Newt''': People like you, don't they, Mr. Kowalski?
-->'''Jacob''': Oh, well, uh, I'm sure they like you too.
-->'''Newt''': Not really, no, [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} I annoy]] [[NotGoodWithPeople people]].
-->'''Jacob''': [''not really sure how to react''] ...Oh.
