Funny: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
  • Butch trying to talk Sundance into jumping off a cliff into a river with him to escape the posse.
    Butch: Alright. I'll jump first.
    Sundance: No.
    Butch: Then YOU jump first.
    Sundance: No, I said!
    Butch: What's the mattter with you?
    Sundance: I can't swim!
    Butch: (after laughing) ...you crazy? The fall'll probably kill you.
    Sundance: Oooooooh, shiiiiiit!
    *they jump*
  • Butch's solution to the improved safe in a train they've already robbed is simply to stick more dynamite in it. The result is the whole train car blowing up, along with the money.
    Sundance: You think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
  • "Morons. No one's going to attack us while we're going down the mountain. We've got no money going down the mountain. We only need to worry when we're coming back."
  • Probably one of the greatest Face Palm moment in cinema history, Butch and Cassidy are about to enter a firefight when Butch delivers this line:
    Butch: <quietly> I've never shot a man before.
    Sundance <looks as if he's resisting the urge to do a Face Palm> Hell of a time to tell me, Butch...
  • Later, when attempting to learn Spanish in Bolivia, Etta wants Butch to speak Spanish to her to show how far he's come. What does he do? Take out a little paper with Spanish words and reads it out.
    • It comes back to bite him during their first attempts at robbing a bank, with Butch speaking Spanish very hesitantly and repeating the same sentences.
    Butch: "Todos ustedes... arrimense a la pared." note 
    Sundance: ... They're against the wall already!
    Butch: "Donde es..." oh, if you're so damn smart, you read it!
  • Early on in the film, after the first Flyer robbery, the local town's marshal tries to gather a posse to catch the Hole in the Wall Gang. He starts off very soft-spoken and reasonable ("How many of you want me to supply you with horses?") to trying to guilt-trip the posse ("If you want your children to know I fought them by myself, that's fine.") to just resorting to screaming aloud at them ("That is why I'm your marshal, and that is why you and you and you are riding with me!"), with only the last of these eliciting a response. Said response being a bike salesman coming up to the stage hawking his wares.
    • Even better, right before Sundance goes off to visit Etta, the crowd is seen in the background, crowding around the bike and ignoring the marshal.
