Surprisingly, there were too many funny moments in this series.
open/close all folders
Gru, trying to flatter Ms. Hattie by speaking Spanish. She has no idea what he's saying, but she thinks it's a compliment. However...
"You have a face... como un burro."note "You have a face that looks like a donkey."
And when Ms. Hattie buys a Spanish dictionary to notice what it means - and slapping Gru across the face with it.
Most of Margo's constant sarcasm, especially when Gru wants her & her sisters to "skip the dance class" during their ballet practice and the whole theather was laughing so hard when she didn't care about Vector asking her & her sisters who ordered more cookies than him.
Margo: Four boxes of mini-mints, two toffee totes, uh, two caramel clumpies, aaaaand fifteen boxes of coconutties.
Vector:: Exactly. I'd like to see somebody else order that many cookies. Not likely. Name one person who ordered more cookies than me.
Gru's facial expression and pointing over his back at hearing Vector was the one who stole the pyramids gets a giggle.
Early on in the movie, there's a game at an amusement park where you have to knock over a tiny spaceship prop. The reward is a stuffed unicorn (Agnes' was destroyed earlier). After around 1 or 2 tries, Agnes hits the spaceship... but the vendor decides to be a dick and invoke Exact Words, saying that she didn't "knock over" the spaceship. Gru proceeds to bring out his More Dakka gun, and blast the stand. The entire stand is obliterated... except the planet and spaceship. The vendor stares at the wreckage, and the ship disintegrates.
Agnes holding her breath.
Gru: ...that's freaking me out, what is she doing?
The little shadow puppets during the end credits can make one giggle.
Minion (talking through shadow puppet of Gru): "Hello! I am Gru. Back to work. Back to work!"
Agnes singing at the orphanage while they were about to sleep.
Two of the Minions altering Gru's credentials while Ms. Hattie is reading them. Then getting into a slap fight over what to add, and then one Minion starts forcing the other to slam his head against the keyboard repeatedly, causing the credentials to turn to gibberish and confusing the hell out of Ms. Hattie.
"Yes, mine's shaped like a dead guy!"
One of the side effects of stealing the moon... a werewolf turns back to normal.
"Rule number three: You will not cry, or whine, or laugh, or giggle, or sneeze or burp or fart."
Agnes: Does this count as annoying? (Puckers mouth and smacks puffed-out cheeks, making a popping sound)
And just before, the look in that squid's eyes. It clearly has no idea what's going on...
And then the second one rolls his eyes at Vector's boasting.
Agnes: Aw! My caterpillar never turned into a butterfly!
Edith: "That's a Cheeto."
Agnes: Oh. *eats cheeto*
And Margo's and Edith's reaction just sells it.
The gag with Nefario's mobility scooter.
Nefario: We have to get to him... AND FAST!
Gru's odd "good night" to the girls during their first night there.
"All right, good night, sleep tight, and don't let the bed-bugs bite. Because there are literally thousands of them." *turns off lights, starts to leave, but pauses* "Oh, and there's probably something in your closet."
That part with the balloon.
The minions go shopping for a new unicorn toy for Agnes.
"When we got adopted by a bald guy...I thought this would be more like Annie."
The Brick Joke in which Ms. Hattie mentions the offscreen box of shame, then when the three girls leave the room, they say hi to the girl imprisoned in the now-visible box.
Edith's face when she sees Gru for the first time.
Agnes eating candy from a dog bowl.
The reference to The Godfather with Gru finding the makeover doll head in his bed and freaking out.
Gru speaking to Dr. Nefario over the video intercom, and acting as if everything is normal... despite having Kyle hanging off his arm, and eating his muffin, having sunk his teeth into it.
When Gru brings the girls home; Agnes spots Kyle, shrieks "Ooh, fluffy doggie!" and runs up to give him a hug — whereupon he yelps in fright and runs away. Priceless.
Gru: "Kyle, these are not treats, they're guests. Girls, this is Kyle, my...dog."
"Oh, can we get stuffed crust?!"
"Ooooooh, stuffed crust."
"I'll stuff you ALL in the crust!"
After the pyramid is stolen in the opening, various governments around the world protect their landmarks... such as one guy with a shotgun defending "The Big Beer (16000 fluid oz)" and a platoon of tanks in China guarding the Great Wall and all swiveling their turrets to shoot a passing bird!
Kevin (the minion who gets shrunk later on) reacting to Gru shaking his hand like he just met Elvis and fainting.
"Da da da, papoy. Pfft!"
When the girls first find the secret lair, Edith finds a strange-looking solution:
Edith: Can we drink this?
Nefario:*equally cheery voice* Do you want to explode?"
Edith kicks him instead, while he shouts out Gru!!!.
The very first scene in which we see Gru. Wearing a grim expression on his face, he's assembling a gun. He points it, pulls the trigger... and out comes a balloon shaped like a unicorn. Then the viewpoint pulls back and we see that he's preparing Agnes' birthday party.
"You know, you really should announce your weaponsafter you fire them. For example... *shocks Gru*Lipstick taser!"
Antonio: I was just going to get a cookie. Care to join me?
Margo: [nervous] Uh,... sure. Iím... Margo.
"Kyle, NO! Do not do your business in the petunias!" *picks him up and drops him in the neighbor's yard* "There. Those are Fred's. Go crazy." *Kyle does, Gru chuckles* Good boy.
The minions holding auditions for their upcoming movie, but they're continuously blocked by a black wall.
Gru and the minions send Dr. Nefario off with a "21 fart gun salute". This leads to:
Dr. Nefario: I counted 22.
(he and Gru look at a minion who laughs bashfully)
And also, the way Dr Nefario exits Gru's evil lair. His scooter-jetbike is still very...slow.
Dr. Nefario: This may take a while.
Agnes's excitement for the arrival of the fairy princess.
Gru trying to find the serum in Eaglesan's shop, using a device Lucy has planted on him. He has to walk around the shop, get near everything he can, to find it... problem is it's on his lower-abdomen so when he tries to pick up a signal he's pelvic-thrusting at everything.
Basically anything to do with the minions. From the 'Brave Knights' scene to the 'Minion Island' scene to the 'Ice Cream Party' scene to the 'Hunter Posing with Dr. Nefario and El Macho' scene. I swear, the developers probably spent more meetings trying to pick the best minion scenes to put in the film. So much so that they're gonna make minions film. Which would probably be about why the minions end up with Gru and why they adore him so much.
The robotic way that Agnes recited her poem.
The Minion Golfing scene. Totally a throwaway gag, but hilarious. Minions A and B put the girls to sleep. Minion A says something to Minion B, and then the movie cuts to Minion A dresses in a golf outfit, with Minion B laying on his back with a golf tee/ball in his mouth. Minion A takes a couple practice swings at the ball, looks directly at the camera, and then lowers the club to the level of Minion B's head. He winds up...and is interrupted.
The minion with the golf club is Kevin (who attacks the house later on in the film once he's mutated) while the other one (the shorter and chubbier one) is Jerry. You can hear Gru say their names in the 'Ice Cream Party/Irish Drinking Song' scene.
Gru's attempt to do the dance-step password for El Macho's underground lair, only to keep tripping up and triggering booby traps.
The chip-and-guacamole hat.
Anything to do with El Macho's pet attack chicken.
Gru: I really hate that chicken. (The chicken activates The Rocket with Gru and Lucy on it )
When Gru uses Lucy's lipstick taser to take down the mutated Eduardo.
Gru: Lipstick taserrrr!
Lucy: Aw! He copied me.
The conversation when Agnes sees Edith grabbing coins from a wishing fountain.
A quick example: when the AVL is showing Gru the footage of the serum's testing, he sees the bunny mutate into a horrible monster. The Minions accompanying him look horrified, but if you look at Gru, he has this big smile on his face like it's the coolest thing ever.
However, when the monster bunny begins to attack the scientists, Gru's face is priceless.
Gru: You don't usually see that in a bunny.
Lucy's Love Epiphany on the plane. After seeing Gru in both magazine ads and in her fellow passengers, she decides to just open the plane's window and jump out with a hang-glider. But before that she turns to the stewardess she was talking to and cheerfully shouts "Thank you, Gru-Stewardess!"
Stewardess: *confused* You're welcome!
The cat being sent back down to earth. It was like "We have no use for cats here. Go forth and get adopted."
The minions getting abducted by the ice-cream truck. Especially the last minion who tried to run for it but was distracted by an ice-cream and then got taken too.
Oh, and the funny way the minions were running past the young children towards the ice-cream truck.
"GELATO!!!" Which is Italian for Ice Cream.
Gru simply plowing into every other car in the lot at the Cinco de Mayo party.
The entire date scene, including the part where they carry Shannon home.
Lucy: Looks like your date's been shot with a wild moose tranquilizer. I'm winking at you 'cause that's what actually happened.
Blink-and-you'll-miss-it example. Gru and Lucy sneak into Eduardo's restaurant after closing hours to see if they can find the serum. They find something, but it turns out to be a jar of "secret salsa." Cut to Eduardo returning...and then cut back to Gru and Lucy, who apparently figured they might as well have a snack, because they're dunking chips in the salsa and eating it instead of continuing the mission.
"HE'S SO FLUUUFFFYYYY!!!" (Sadly, the quote was only in the junior novel.)
"I'M SO HAAAPPPPPPYYYY!!!"
The scene where Gru is rowing and one of the minions directs him through a megaphone.
Which pops up again later, and is probably funnier because it's a Minion directing another Minion to pick up Gru and Lucy...and rowing right past them.
Gru: "They'll be back."
"Uh, hi everybody. I'd like to make some toast."
The entire "never grow up" scene:
Gru: Good night, Margooo-woah-woah-woah-woah, hold the horses, who are you texting?
Margo: No one, just my friend Avery.
Gru: Avery... eh, Avery? Is that a girl's name or a boy's name?
