Funny: Amadeus
  • Any time Mozart laughs, especially when he does so when he can't think of anything to say.
  • The death of Salieri's father is Played for Laughs, almost crossing into Lemony Narrator territory.
  • "Grazie, Signore."
  • The parody of The Magic Flute, complete with a dove flying right out a horse's ass.
    "I'm a famous horseman!"
    "And we're a famous horse!"
  • When the Emperor asks Mozart to name them a German virtue and he names 'love'. The entire bit that follows:
    Salieri: (sarcastically) Oh love! Well of course, In Italy, we know nothing about love!
    (Salieri, Kappelmeister Bono and Orsini-Rosenberg laugh)
    Mozart: (Completely serious look on his face) No, I don't think you do. I mean, watching Italian opera — all those male sopranos screeching, stupid fat couples rolling their eyes around. That's not love, it's just just just just ... rubbish!
    (Kappelmeister Bono giggles nervously until Orsini-Rosenberg shoots him a withering look)
  • The little dance and the raspberry that Mozart blows at the portrait of his father, accompanied by the silly-sounding music that is the The Magic Flute Overture.
  • Mozart's joking around with Constanze in the banquet room at the beginning of the film.
    Mozart: Here, everything goes backwards. People walk backwards, dance backwards, sing backwards, and even talk backwards.
    Constanze: That's stupid.
    Mozart: Why? People fart backwards?
    Constanze: Oh haw haw haw.
    Mozart: (Crazy high-pitched laugh)
