Funny: Flashpoint

Funny moments for the comic book Flashpoint:

  • Frankenstein facing off against a Nazi superhero guarding Hitler's bunker. The exchange goes as such:
    Nazi Superman: Come to me, jigsaw man! Come feel the strength and glory of the motherland squeeze the life from your-
    Frankenstein: Shut up. *Stabs him dead with The Sword of Michael*
  • Element Woman introducing herself in the fourth issue:
    Element Woman: My name's Emily Sung, but my top secret code name is Element Woman! Anyone want a juice box? I brought extra.


Funny moments for the TV series Flashpoint:

  • In "Last Dance" when the team had to work overtime, some members called their wives/girlfriends/loved ones to tell them they would be late coming home. Lewis gets a call from Spike who was standing not ten feet away from him.
    Spike: Hey Lou, I'm gonna be late coming home.
    Lou: Aw it's okay. At least you called.
  • "Clean Hands" reveals something that Ed is afraid of.
    Delia Semple: Not a bad vacation for the guys who get to fly over at least.
    Parker: Well, if you like jumping over the ocean in a metal coffin, sure.
    Delia Semple: Theres something you guys are actually afraid of!
    Parker: You know what, we all have our weak spots. Could be anything. Flying. Cats.
    (Parker looks at Eddie)
    Spike: I was there, it was mean.
    • Later on:
      Parker: Sorry about that cat thing.
      Eddie: Well talk about that later!
      (Parker laughs)
  • There is something very adorable whenever anyone talks to and about Babycakes.
    Parker: Babycakes, how are you?
    Spike: Frickin' shag carpet. Been picking it out of her treads all morning.
    Ed: Price of love, Spike.
    Spike: Yeah she didn't even make me breakfast.
    Parker: Say good bye to your girlfriend. Briefing room, five minutes.
  • In "Element of Surprise", this ensuing conversation as the team was getting ready to bust a drug dealer:
    Parker: (referring to the undercover cop) What's his in?
    Naismith: He's worked his way up through the ranks over the past eight months from a lowlife to mid-level runner. Trust factor's pretty high, so Asshat's giving Geddes a slice to sell to the neighborhood kids.
    (after Naismith leaves)
    Parker: Did he say "asshat?"
    Ed: He said "asshat."
  • In "First in Line," Sam is eager to be a part of the team on his first mission. So Ed gives him serious and detailed instructions...to get them coffee from the closest Tim Horton's.
    Ed: Look, there's something I need you to do. Alright, see these stairs here, where we came in, right? I need you to do reverse entry, across this hallway to these doors here. I need you to go through, now be careful because that is a big road. I want you to cross. I want you to make an entry into this Timmy's.
    Sam: *looks flabbergasted*
    Ed: I'll have a double-double.
  • In the finale, Spike needs acetone to defuse a bomb, so he rushes outside and breathlessly asks if anyone has nail polish remover (acetone is a common ingredient in this product). Peoples' initial reaction is to stare at him like he's crazy and he has to yell, "I'm serious!"
  • A retroactive funny: watching the first episode of the series and witnessing Sam's botched initial introduction to the team can illicit a few laughs.
    • Not to mention the value of a little Gilbert and Sullivan singing to placate an annoyed wife for missing her parent's 40th Anniversary.
