Funny: Happy Gilmore
  • The Cluster Bleep Bomb as a Funny Background Event:
  • Bob Barker and Happy's brawl: from 1:30 to 2:52
  • The following:
    Shooter: You're in big trouble though, pal. I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!
    Happy: [laughing] You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?
    Shooter: [long pause] No!
  • The guy constantly calling Happy a "Jackass".
  • "Wait! You no want breakfast?!"
  • "You can trouble me for a warm glass of shut the hell up!"
  • Happy tries to putt the ball into the clown's mouth on the miniature golf course, and every time he fails, the clown laughs at him. Eventually, he succeeds, only for the clown to cough the ball back up and laugh at him.
  • "Grizzly Adams did have a beard."
  • Happy's "gift" for Chubbs:
    Happy: Remember the gator that got your hand? I got his head. "
    (Cue dramatic zoom in on gator's head accompanied by dramatic music.)
    Chubbs: (screams and falls backwards out of a window)
  • For some reason, Happy's Happy Place includes a midget dressed like a cowboy.
  • Shooter's first meeting with Mr. Larson:
    Mr. Larson: Trying to reach the green from here, Shooter?
    Shooter: That's not possible, sir.
    Mr. Larson: I beg to differ; Happy Gilmore accomplished that feat, no more than an hour ago.
    Shooter: Well, MORON...(turns around) good for Happy (sees that Larson is over 7 ft tall and has a nail in his head) Gilm-OHMYGOD!
    • And soon after that, Mr Larson decides to bend Shooter's 9-iron for no apparent reason. After teeing off, Shooter exits as fast as he can without running.
    • Then after that, when Happy inevitably wins the tournament, Shooter runs off with the jacket.
    Mr. Larson: I believe that's Mr. Gilmore's!
    (Mr. Larson, and the rest of the crowd, runs after Shooter and proceed to beat the crap out of him.)
  • Happy's response to Shooter's threats:
    Shooter: Just stay out of my way... or you'll pay! LISTEN to what I say!
    Happy: Why don't I just go eat some hay? I could make things out of clay, or lay by the bay! I just may! What'd ya say?
  • The pan down to the ice rink manager singing along to "Endless Love."
