Funny / Fletch

  • From the first film, Fletch encounters the sexy Gail wearing nothing but a towel.
    Fletch: Can I borrow your towel? My car hit a water buffalo.
  • Pretty much anytime Fletch opens his mouth EVER. He has such great one-liners.
  • One moment that's both funny and kind of awesome is when Fletch is snapped at by Stanwyk after making a joke. Instead of sheepishly apologizing like a typical comedy protagonist would nowadays, Fletch puts him in his place rather nicely:
    Stanwyk: "You doped up right now!?"
    Fletch: "Don't talk to me like that, assface. I don't work for you yet."
  • MoooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooon river!
  • Posing as a bureaucrat in an exec's office and being offered coffee.
    Secretary: Sugar, Mr. Poon?
    Fletch: No. Never. Never.
    • Gets a Call-Back when he accidentally plays his recorder rather than recording.
  • His roller-skating-swami getup.
  • Fletch's exchange with the car thief, both of them shouting to be heard over the noise of a high-speed police pursuit:
    "You a cop?"
    "Far as you know."
    "Are you gonna take me to jail for car theft?"
    "Why? You steal the car?"
    "I sure did!"
    "Well, I'm not even sure that's a crime anymore! There've been a lot of changes in the law!"
In the sequel:
  • Fletch's Imagine Spot where he imagines himself as a plantation owner dressed like The KFC colonel, with a busty wife, and his boss and his ex-wife's lawyer as slaves. Then he starts to sing "Zippity Doo Dah" with everyone on the plantation with an animated dog and bluebird in the scene for no reason. Best Big-Lipped Alligator Moment ever.
  • Fletch uses a credit card to jimmy a door lock in his Billy Jean King, Bug Buster disguise. It's not just anyone's card...
    Fletch: Over the years, I'd found Mr. Underhill's credit card to be a useful tool... much like Underhill himself.
