Funny: Gargoyles
  • Hudson discovering television for the first time in "Awakening Part Three". Hudson just pushes a random button on the remote, a heavy metal singer appears on TV screaming, cue Hudson and Bronx running away in terror.
    • Hudson trying to argue that not everything in the world needs a name to Elisa. Only to learn his last example (the river) is named the Hudson.
    Hudson: Must you humans name everything? Nothing's real to you till you've named it. Given it limits.
    Elisa: It's not like that, it's just that, well, uh... (helplessly) Things need names.
    Hudson: Does the sky need a name? (points to the bay) Does the river?
    Elisa: The river's called the Hudson.
    Hudson: (taken aback, Hudson looks over to Goliath, who just smirks) *sighs* Fine lass, then I will be the Hudson as well.
  • When Lex frightens the innocent motorcycle driver, and then tries to ride his bike... cue crash and explosion.
    Brooklyn: We better not tell Goliath about this...
  • At the end of the "Awakening" five part premier, Goliath and Elisa agree to see each other again.
    Elisa: Maybe we'll catch a Giants game.
    Goliath: (surprised) Giants? (turns to stone seconds later)
  • Near the end of "Temptation" Lexington asks about his homemade motorcycle, his response to Brooklyn's answer is humorous to say the least.
    Lexington: Hey, what happened to the motorcycle?
    Brooklyn: Um, it blew up.
    Lexington: (smiles) Oh, (registers what Brooklyn said just before turning to stone) WHAT!
  • During "Enter Macbeth", Brooklyn convinces Lex to find a way out of their electrified cage with the following:
    Brooklyn: (poking the bars) *bzzt* Ouch. *bzzt* Ouch. *bzzt* Ouch. *bzzt* Ouch.
    • Lexington has a line later on in the same episode which is hilarious more from the delivery than anything else.
    Goliath: *Deafening enraged roar*
    Lexington: (deadpan) Looks like Bronx found Goliath.
  • The end of the episodes "Temptation" and "Vendettas".
  • In "The Edge", the Steel clan are beating Goliath and the clan. Broadway slams into a wall of bricks and... the wall doesn't break down, but instead a single brick falls on his head prompting him to yell "Hey!"
  • From 'Reawakening':
    (distant explosion)
    Broadway: This surround-sound is incredible!
    Lexington: I don't remember any explosions in Bambi.
  • "Let's... go... shopping!" It's the tone in Xanatos' voice.
  • "The Mirror" is one long Funny Moment from the minute Puck starts casting spells.
    "Did you say "that human" or "that human?" Oh, never mind, I'll figure it out."
    • While fighting the Human!Gargoyles Puck runs into some trouble with Bronx (unaffected by his transformation spell). So he turns Bronx into a "normal" dog, and it doesn't help.
    Puck: Whoa! Should have tried the Chihuahua!
  • In "City of Stone, Part 4", Goliath tries to stop Demona and Macbeth from fighting. He grabs them as they are locked in combat, only to get a face full of fist from both of them simultaneously. Serious moment, but by gosh was it funny.
  • The climax of City of Stone where Demona has just given them the access code. Xanatos zooms up to the computers, deactivates the destruct-sequence with seconds to spare, and wipes his brow with a sigh of relief. And there's Bronx, staring right at him.
    Xanatos: What are you looking at?
  • Xanatos after creating his own Frankestein's Monster with Demona's help:
  • Right after the trio's first disastrous attempt to fly a helicopter:
    Brooklyn: (eyeing the wreckage) What are we supposed to do now? Use it as a planter?
    • And directly before:
    "Yeah use the Force, Lex!"
  • Fox and Hyena sharing a cell and entertaining themselves with Sartre and shooting cockroaches with a slingshot, respectively:
    Hyena: Why do you read that stuff anyway?
    Fox: Because Nietzsche's too butch and Kafka reminds me of your little friends over there.
    • It's especially funny when you remember Sartre's most famous work, No Exit.
  • The episode that introduces Goliath's clone:
    Goliath: You should know that I am not in the habit of playing childish pranks or laughing maniacally in the dark.
    Hudson: Do you even know how to laugh maniacally?
    • Thailog hearing Goliath let loose an angry roar:
    Now I know where I got the temper.
    • "YES! I betrayed you! You robbed me of my ultimate achievement! My greatest creation! I only took back what was miiine! (whispers) ...there, how was that?"
    • After Thailog's inevitable betrayal: "Typical. You do and do and do for them, and what happens? They twist the knife in you-"
    Thailog: Don't tempt me.
  • In "The Price", where Xanatos captures Hudson gives us this moment:
    Xanatos: We need a piece of your skin, Hudson.
    Hudons: You'll have the Devil's own task getting it!
    Xanatos: Really? (pulls out tray from underneath Hudson, picks up one of his sheddings, and closes it). Gee, that wasn't as hard as you made it sound.
    • When Macbeth attacks the Gargoyles for the third time.
    Macbeth: Farewell, my enemies! (starts shooting)
    Brooklyn: (to Broadway) Alright, this is gettin' old...
    • Goliath destroys him, who turns out to be a robot.
    Macbeth robot: (malfunctioning) You'll have... to do... better... than.... that....
  • In "Revelations":
    Matt: How accommodating of the Society to provide their senior members with rejuvenation drugs.
    Mace Malone: (grins) You should see the dental plan.
  • The episode "Protection", for introducing us to "Haa...haaa...! JALAPENA!", if nothing else.
  • The episode "Cloud Fathers" gives us Xanatos first (and only) attempt at being a cliché villain.
    Xanatos: It's my first real stab at cliched villainy... (casually) How am I doing?
  • Many of the Archmage's interactions with his younger self in "Avalon, Part 2".
    "Finally. I thought he'd never leave."
  • "Avalon Part 2" had the Archmage utter: "Don't crow too loudly. After all, what have you achieved? You beat up a beach."
  • In "Grief", Jackal becomining the Avataro of Anubis can be pretty horrifying, but him turning Heyena and Wolf into babies was hilarious.
  • In "Mark of the Panther", Goliath's straight-faced and deadpan "...Of course not," in response to Diane Maza's assertion that she needs no protection walking through the mythological abandoned city chasing down werepanthers. Even funnier when you realize this is his first real interaction with his then-unofficial girlfriend's mother.
  • Oberon gets several moments in the two-parter "The Gathering". Like when Fox asks her mother Anastasia/Titania to explain his presence.
    Oberon: Mother?! Ha ha ha, Titania, what have you been up to?
  • C'mon, anyone forgot about the cream pie gun Mr. Carter, wielded by Vinnie? With Vinnie humming the Gargoyles' theme song as he walks away victorious?
    Hudson: Who in the world was that?!
    Goliath: I haven't the slightest idea.
  • While Thailog is breaking Demona out of her imprisonment in the episode "The Reckoning", she ominously points a weapon at Fang. Fang being Fang, begs for mercy, in his own way.
    Fang: (while throwing a blanket over himself) Some of my best friends are half-human half-gargoyle babes with bad attitudes!
  • In the only canon episodes of The Goliath Chronicles we have this golden line when Macbeth is having a live debate against a Gargoyle hater:
    Macbeth: Madam, they burnt witches like you in the middle ages!
  • It may be Canon Discontinuity, but "And Justice For All" features Goliath making a Dynamic Entry into the courtroom where his sentence is about to be given, with the real criminal in tow. His first line afterwards: "Please forgive the dramatic entrance, Your Honor."
  • Another great moment from Goliath Chronicles in the episode "For it May Come True". Humanified Goliath actually doing a Spit Take when his two kids wave goodbye on there way to school.
    Goliath: DADDY? We have children!?
  • "Have no fear! Supergoyle is here!"
  • Thailog takes after his dear daddy Anton in his entertaining card carrying villainy.
    • His reaction to learning that Goliath has, essentially, taken Delilah (the clone he made of Demona with some of Elisa's DNA) on a date is to laugh uproariously, then remark: "Wow. Haven't had a good maniacal laugh in weeks."
    • Later, after Delilah has called out Goliath on his motives for said date:
    Thailog: Fresh out of the can and already so intuitive! (to Elisa) Must be the good genes, eh Detective?
    Deliliah: (slaps his hand away) You used me as well, Thailog.
    Thailog: (hand over his heart) Moi?
    • And throughout the entire above storyline, he's wearing a domino mask. Cause, y'know, it's Halloween.
  • The scene in the comic where Stone of Destiny and the Holy Grail greet each other when they're alone.
    Stone: Hey.
    Grail: Hey.
    • Remember, they are both ancient mystical artifacts.
  • Brooklyn notices that his own clone is apparently having more romantic luck than him.
    Oh, you gotta be kiddin' me...
  • Xanatos may be at the very bottom rung of the Illuminati, but he still has no problem snarking at his superiors.
    Quincy Hemings: Been on staff here at the White House since the Roosevelt administration.
    Xanatos: [raises eyebrow] FDR?
    Hemings: Teddy. And I been Chief Steward here since Johnson.
    Xanatos: (innocent smirk) Andrew?
    Hemings: LBJ. Now don't get smart, boy.
  • In the "Gathering of the Cast and Crew" featurette on the Season 2 Volume 1 DVD, Jeff Bennett demonstrates his Man of a Thousand Voices talent by ad-libbing this gorgeously nonsensical exchange between his three major characters:
    Brooklyn: That's a bike! Isn't it a cool bike?
    Owen: Yes, it is a very cool bike. Unfortunately, we're going to have to blow it up. I'm so sorry, Brooklyn.
    Magus: Yes, but before you blow it up I would like to change it into a beautiful woman.
