Funny: Batman Returns
  • "Saved by kitty litter."
  • After Penguin's hijacked-Batmobile plan fails.
    • Penguin screaming because he lost control of the Batmobile, then Batman breaks the screen.
    • The whole "hijacked Batmobile" scene in general can be quite hilarious. Come on, the Penguin's controlling it by way of "driving" a mini-Batmobile, like the kind of back-and-forth kiddie ride you'd see in arcades.
      • Especially once the Penguin starts violently shaking the thing backwards and forwards like an infuriated child.
    • The Bat Emblem-shaped steering wheel is icing on the cake.
  • After his Engineered Public Confession later:
    • During said confession, we have DJ Bruce Wayne "scratching" the CD containing Penguin's rants.
  • In the middle of the intense climax, this moment occurs:
    Schreck: Selina! Selina Kyle! You're fired. (to unmasked Batman) Bruce Wayne? Why are you dressed up as Batman?
    Catwoman: Because he is Batman, you moron.
    • Followed by Schreck's Deadpan reply, "Was." and he shoots Batman.
    • During the same scene: Schreck staring at his gun in utter disbelief after his fourth bullet fails to kill Selina.
  • "Right now, my troops are fanning out across town for your children! Yes, for your firstborn sons! The one you left defenseless at home so you can dress up like jerks, get juiced, and dance... badly!"
  • "Don't hurt us, lady! Our take-home is only $300!"
    Catwoman: (To security officers) "You're overpaid, hit the road."
  • When Selina is trying to explain to Alfred that her leaving abruptly is not a sign of rejection towards Bruce, she stumbles over what she wants him to relay to Bruce and instead asks Alfred if he could come up with a sonnet or a dirty limerick on her behalf. Without missing a beat, Alfred kindly responds with an amused smile that "one just came to mind".
  • Catwoman: (on the ground) How could you? I'm a woman.
    Batman: I'm sorry, I-I...
    (WHAM!)
    Catwoman: (Slasher Smile) As I was saying, I'm a woman and can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I.
  • Penguin using an umbrella with a spiral design on top:
    Max: Is that supposed to hypnotize me?
    Penguin: No, just give you a splitting headache.
    Max: It's not working.
    * BANG!*
    Penguin: You big baby. Just blanks.
  • An orchestrated version of "Super Freak" is played during the first half of the party scene. It was supposed to be "U Can't Touch This", but Rick James sued MC Hammer for copyright infringement (the suit was settled out of court, however, when Hammer agreed to credit James as co-composer, effectively cutting James in on the millions of dollars the record was earning).
  • As the make Penguin mayor operation starts to take form, Penguin is approached by some image consultants, including this joker (no pun intended)...
    Josh: Not a lot of reflective surfaces down in the sewer, huh?
    *Josh chuckles, followed by Penguin joining in rather hammily*
    Penguin: Still, it could be worse! My nose could be gushing blood.
    *they continue to share a laugh*
    Josh: Your nose could be... what do you mean by th—
  • One of the reasons Schreck (played by Christopher Walken, mind you) gives to Cobblepot as to why he should run for mayor is "unlimited poontang." Cue a cartoonish "ding" noise followed by Cobblepot readily agreeing to go along with Schreck's plan.
  • After Batman gets control of the Batmobile back from the Penguin, the car is heading toward a narrow alley. Trying to get away from the cops pursuing him, Batman taps the button to change the 'Mobile into the Bat-Missile. Nothing happens; "That's funny." He taps it again a few times, to no avail, and the alley getting closer; "Okay, now I'm a little worried!" Finally he PUNCHES all of the buttons, which does the job at the last minute.
  • Penguin's arrival at Max's party.
    Penguin: Right now, my troops are fanning out across town, for your children! Yes, for your first-born sons! The ones you left helpless, at home, so you could dress up like jerks, get juiced, and dance... badly.
