Funny / Fantastic Mr. Fox

  • The "Don't you cuss with me" scene with Mr. Fox and Badger snarling at each other. The scene is hilarious enough on its own, but it becomes even funnier when you get the mental image of Bill Murray and George Clooney, two of Hollywood's most beloved and respected actors, in the recording booth making snarling and hissing animal noises at each other.
  • Any and every time Kylie does the eye thing!
    • Mr. Fox does it after dealing with Spitz.
  • Bean asks Petey about the song he was singing during the tunnel robbing montage. As he responds by saying that he's just making the lyrics up as he goes along, he gets this:
    • Even funnier when you remember that Petey is voiced by acclaimed songwriter Jarvis Cocker.
  • "Petey, bring us a ladder please."
  • Apple juice... Apple juice flood...
  • Mr. Fox eating his French toast.
  • The scene where Mr. Fox and Kylie drive the tiny motorcycle and sidecar from behind the regular-sized motorcycle.
  • Mrs. Fox has some pretty good ones. Most notably:
    "If what I think is happening
    is happening
    it better not be."
    • It really does need three full lines to get the whole effect.
      Mrs. Fox: I'm going to lose my temper now.
      Mr. Fox: ... When?
      Mrs. Fox: Right now.
      Mr. Fox: Well when- *slap*
  • Ash: I'm sick.
    Mrs. Fox: You're not sick.
    Ash: I have a temperature.
    Mrs. Fox: You don't have a temperature.
    Ash: I don't want to go.
    Mrs. Fox: Hurry up, you're going to be late.
    Ash: *growls but complies*
    Mr. Fox: I love the way you handled that.
  • The delivery of "What the cuss? Where'd this giant fence come from, we had a master plan!"
  • "Why is he wearing that bandit hat?" "His ears were cold."
  • When Fox and family escape Boggis, Bunce and Bean trying to dig them out of the tree, Bean calls Petey to rent "one Mighty Max, one Junior Spitfire, and a Longways Tornado 375 Turbo". Smash cut to what those are: three different sized backhoes, with Boggis, Bunce and Bean driving them at high speed and laughing maniacally like kids on a joyride.
  • "Why did they write this in letter cut-out of old magazines?"
    • "I don't know, but you did do the same thing."
  • While Rat's death is otherwise treated with dignity, it's punctuated by his eyes making X signs, like in 2D-animated cartoons/anime how KO'd or dead characters have X'd out eyes.
  • When Bean finds out that he's been outsmarted by Mr. Fox, he's... he's not too happy.
  • "He went bananas." "He did".
  • The entire conversation about Mrs. Fox's...colorful past:
    Kylie: Is that true?
    Mr. Fox: Of course not. She lived, we all did, it was a different time. Let's not form a Double Standard though, she marched against those-
    Kylie: The town tart?
    Mr. Fox: Shut up.
  • Badger losing his temper with Mr. Fox:
    Badger: Those farmers aren't going to stop until they have you and your entire family dead and nailed to a stick upside-down with your eyes gouged out.
    Mr. Fox: This is getting a little bit too personal.
  • "I don't even want to talk about it."
  • This exchange:
    Mr. Fox: Kylie, hand me your credit card. (Kylie does so) See, this is what I was talking about with the availability thing-A TITANIUM CARD?! How the cuss are you qualified for this?
    Kylie: I pay my bills on time. I've always had good credit.
  • Pretty much the entire scene with the moving squirrels.
