* Near the beginning, Creator/NicolasCage momentarily unleashes the full power of his [[LargeHam Ham]] on an unsuspecting David.
--->'''David:''' How did you know my name was David?
--->'''Balthazar:''' BECAUSE I CAN READ MINDS!
--->*beat*
--->'''Balthazar:''' [[MundaneSolution It's on your backpack.]]
* Horvath using CharmPerson when trying to find David. Lampshaded by his own apprentice.
--->'''Guard:''' I'll need to see your identification card.
--->'''Horvath:''' [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything You don't need to see]] [[StarWars my identification card.]]
--->'''Guard:''' I don't need to see your identification card.
--->'''Drake:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny These are not]] [[LampshadeHanging the Droids you're looking for.]]
--->'''Horvath:''' ''Annoyed Glare''
* Horvath appearing in David's apartment, and announcing himself by criticizing David's ''4th grade history report.''
--->'''Horvath:''' I've recently been released from a ten year sentence during which the only reading material available to me was your so-called report on Napoleon Bonaparte from your schoolbag. [[FelonyMisdemeanor Your analysis was obvious; your prose was weak.]]
--->'''David:''' I was ''nine.''
* David lacks perspective on just how bad [[SealedGoodInACan the last ten years have been]] for Balthazar.
--->'''David:''' Do you have any idea what my life has been like for the last ten years?
--->'''Balthazar:''' I've been stuck in an urn for the last ten years.
--->'''David:''' So have I! [[LameComeback A...figurative urn of ridicule.]]
* [[PunctuatedForEmphasis This. Must. Not. Happen.]]
* The bathroom scene:
--> '''Drake:''' Have you cleared your mind?
--> '''Dave:''' Yeah ...
--> '''Drake:''' Have you got the ring on? Yeah? Right, try taking it off, it never helps me.
--> '''Horvath:''' (''comes in, looks at them and says to Drake, exasperated'') Go guard the door.
* "Will you step in to my cage?"
* "Go Team [[BuffySpeak Magical Stuff]]."
* The [[GroinAttack plasma-bolt training]].
* [[{{Adorkable}} Dave around Becky]].
* The Old Man shoes scene.
* This little gem while fighting a dragon.
--> '''Dave''': Clear my mind?! Are you crazy?!
--> '''Balthazar''': *Thinks for a moment, then holds up two pinched fingers to say "a little"*
** At least Balthazar is honest with himself and others.
* When Dave is driving to the final battle and gets stuck in traffic behind an old woman... with a walker
* If you're quick enough with the pause you can catch [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120209182729/villains/images/8/8d/Maxim_Horvath%27s_defeat.jpg This]] when Dave electrocutes Horvath right before the final battle scene.
* Who can forget the mops scene? Then there's that part when Dave tries to stop the madness. He pins a struggling mop to the table, and raises a fire axe above his head intending to chop it. [[ShadowDiscretionShot Cue a camera cut to the shadow of him raising the axe cast dramatically across the wall,]] [[FelonyMisdemeanor as if he's committing murder]]. So this scene managed not only to make the mandatory CallBack to the original MickeyMouse cartoon, but also lampoon a horror movie cliche. '''Wow.'''
