Funny / Harvey

  • At the very end of the movie Harvey opens a door and the words at the bottom of the screen say.
    "Harvey as Himself."
  • This line from Elwood is great, also counts as a moment of awesome.
    Elwood: Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.
  • Veta is almost as funny as Elwood, just read this quote.
    Veta: Oh good! Nobody here but people.
  • There's one scene where Veta and Dr. Chumley are trying to locate Elwood. Elwood calls them asking if Harvey is there with them. They tell him Harvey is in the bath tub. Their plan fails when Elwood 'bumps into Harvey' on his own. These lines will make you laugh every time.
    Elwood: Oh nevermind Veta, here comes Harvey now. Oh, you better see who that is in the bath tub.
    Veta: Oh Myrtle Mae! Find out who the stranger in the bath tub is! ...Beat
    • After Elwood has popped back into the house and placed his new portrait featuring himself and Harvey over the one of his mother hanging over the fireplace. Veta and Dr. Chumley walk in (just missing Elwood). Dr. Chumley catches sight of it right away and is taken aback. He questions Veta about it but she goes on about her mothers portrait blissfully unaware until she finally looks up, and shouts aghast.
    Veta: Doctor, that is not my mother!
    Dr. Chumley: Oh, that's a relief.
  • It's quick, but Dr. Sanderson's failed attempt at an Armor-Piercing Question stands out since those work 99% of the time.
    Dr. Sanderson: Mr. Elwood...what was your father's name?
    Elwood: ...John.
  • Veta calling Mr. Wilson a white slaver.
  • Mr. Wilson reading from an encyclopedia about Pooka's, and learning the fourth wall doesn't protect him.
    Wilson: Pooka, Pooka, from old Celtic mythology: a fairy spirit in animal form. Always very large. The pooka appears here and there, now and then, to this one and that one. A benign but mischievous creature. Very fond of rumpots, crackpots, and how are you, Mr. Wilson? How are you, Mr. Wilson?! Who in the encyclopedia wants to know?!
