Funny: Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
  • "Like with pie."
  • Dr Horrible managing to give a credible look of bemusement at Captain Hammer's "gently wafting curtains" line - whilst being strangled.
  • Dr Horrible bemoaning the fact that Operation Heist didn't go as planned at the end of "A Man's Gotta Do": BALLS! Smash to Black.
  • "Did you notice that he threw you in the garbage?"
    • "What heist were you watching?"
  • "The Evil League of Evil is watching so beware/The grade that you receive will be the last we swear!/So make the Bad Horse gleeful, or he'll make you his mare/You're saddled up/There's no recourse/ Hi-ho Silver!/Signed, Bad Horse."
  • How can you mention Dr. Horrible here without this?
    Captain Hammer: She's giving it up. She's giving it up hard. Because she's with Captain Hammer. And these... (holds up his fists) ...are not the hammer.
    (He leaves the frame for a moment while Billy stares after him.)
    Captain Hammer: (returns to the frame) The hammer is my penis.
    • Watch Neil's facial expression during that scene: he's biting his lip, clearly trying to keep from laughing.
  • Billy gets one just before this, when he learns Captain Hammer is going to stop by the laundromat:
    Billy: (tries to look at his watch, but isn't wearing one) Oh goodness, look at my wrist, I gotta go.
    Penny: But what about your clothes?
    Billy: (turns back, glances in washer) I don't love these. See ya!
  • Half the exchanges between Penny and Billy at the Laundromat:
    Billy: I want to be an achiever. Like Bad Horse.
    Penny: The Thoroughbred of Sin?
    Billy: ...I meant Gandhi.
  • Later:
    Penny: Billy?
    Billy: Yeah?
    Penny: You're driving a spork into your leg.
    Billy: So I am. Hilarious.
  • For me, it has to be the part where Dr. Horrible pauses in the middle of his Moment Of Awesome Villain Song to correct a cowering reporter on the spelling of his name. Then singing about how there will be anarchy... that he will rule.
  • Also deserving special mention: "Nation Mourns What's-Her-Name," a moment that manages to be funny in the middle of a colossal Downer Ending.
    • And it has a built-in Tear Jerker too, so it doesn't even break the mood. Laughing through tears. Joss is evil.
    • In the same sequence in the ending, Captain Hammer in tears while talking to a therapist.
  • "I also need to be a little more careful about what I say on this blog. Apparently the LAPD and Captain Hammer are among our viewers."
    • "...He threw a car at my head." In case there was any doubt that Billy is The Woobie, they made it funny.
  • "Do you need anything dampened or...made soggy?"
  • The entirety of the song 'Everyone's a Hero' by Hammer. Yes, the entire damn thing. It goes Serial Escalation Tom Lehrer-style - just when you think Captain Hammer can't be more of an asshole, he is!
    "So I thank my girlfriend, Penny/Yeah, we totally had sex..."
  • Let's not forget Hammer's first exchange with Horrible:
    Hammer: It's curtains for you, Dr. Horrible! Lacy, gently-wafting curtains.
  • The look on Hammer's face during this exchange in "So They Say":
    Captain Hammer: This is so nice/I just might sleep with the same girl twice/They say it's better the second time/They say you get to do the weird stuff...
    Hammer's Fanclub: We'd do the weird stuff!
    • I found this part particularly funny because it implies that every girl he's ever slept with has dumped/been dumped by him before they could do it again.
  • Also, pretty much all of the 'commentary'... may I add, the fact they wrote a musical (pseudo) commentary possibly counts as a Funny Moment... but especially the 'sea shanty' exchange.
    NPH: Songs can hurt like a fist.
  • The Tur-Mohel's application to the Evil League of Evil. The application requirements include a minion... so Tur-Mohel has a Minyan (a group of ten adult Jewish males). And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
  • The revelation of Bad Horse. Admit it, how many of you expected he'd actually be a horse?
  • "Oh, I'm in pain! I think this is what pain feels like! Oh, mama! Someone maternal!"
  • At one point during the soup kitchen scene of "My Eyes", Dr. Horrible, wearing a fake moustache takes the place of a soup sever. Once you see it...
    • Not to mention that he's a spectacularly bad soup server, mainly because he's too busy given Penny and Hammer a Death Glare to pay attention.
  • Dude, isn't anybody going to point out how bizarre it is to see Nathan Fillion...singing?
  • Felicia Day gets pranked by a group of people cosplaying as the singing Bad Horse chorus.
