!!The Disney film
* Baby Hercules chewing on a lightning bolt and tying Pain and Panic in a knot.
* Herc's reaction to the Zeus statue coming to life -- granted, that's probably how '''any''' ''normal'' person would react if a giant statue came to life and started talking to them (not to mention directly reaching toward him, at that).
* Almost all of the scenes with Hades (played by James Woods, who apparently [[ThrowItIn improvised many of his lines]]). The numerous mythical/historical in-jokes were also great.
** An example of Hades's wellspring of comedy:
--->'''Titans:''' DESTROY ZEUS!!!\\
'''Hades:''' Uhh, guys? Olympus would be ''that'' way.\\
'''Titans:''' (look at Olympus like "WTF...?", then turn around and walk towards it) ...DESTROY ZEUS!!!
** Nearly every time Hades goes off on one of his rants.
--->'''Hades:''' I am about to rearrange the cosmos, and the one SCHLEMIEL who can louse it up IS '''WALTZING AROUND ''IN THE WOODS!'''''
** Upon finding that Pain is wearing Air-Hercs:
--->'''Hades:''' What...are...''those''?\\
'''Pain:''' Um, I don't know. I thought they looked kinda...dashing.\\
'''Hades:''' [''getting flamier with each phrase''] I've got twenty-four hours to get rid of this ''bozo'', or the entire scheme that I've been setting up for ''eighteen years'' goes up in smoke, and ''you...are wearing...'''[[SuddenlyShouting HIS MERCHANDIIIISE?!]]'''\\
[''Hades almost flames Pain before getting distracted by Panic drinking some Hercu-lade'']\\
'''Panic:''' [''nervously''] Oh! Ha ha. Thirsty?\\
[''Hades shouts in rage. Cut to the mountain [[DistantReactionShot exploding in the distance]] as the city shakes.'']
** And before that:
--->'''Pain:''' This might be a different Hercules.\\
'''Panic:''' Yeah, I mean Hercules is a [''choked by Hades''] ''VERY POPULAR NAME NOWADAYS.''\\
'''Pain:''' Remember, like, a few years ago every other boy was named Jason and the girls were only Brittany?!
** This exchange:
---> '''Megara:''' [Hercules] is different. He's honest and sweet, and he wouldn't do anything to hurt me.\\
'''Hades''': He's a '''guy!'''
** Later:
--->'''Hades:''' Guys! Get your Titanic rears in gear and KICK! SOME OLYMPIAN! BUTT!\\
[''Pegasus sneaks up and blows his hair out as if it were a candle'']\\
'''Hades:''' Woah, is my hair out?
** "[[SarcasmMode How sentimental]]. (Fakes being emotional) You know, I haven't been this choked up ''since I got a hunk of moussaka caught in my throat''! ''Huh''?! ({{Beat}}) Is this an audience or a mosaic?"
*** In the Finnish dub, he says that he (roughly translated) "hasn't felt this warm inside since that one time he swallowed a match". [[FridgeLogic Nevermind the fact that the guy is literally on fire.]]
** The entirety of Hades' conversation with [[BlindSeer the Fates]].
--->'''Hades:''' Ladies, so sorry I'm--\\
'''The Fates:''' Late!\\
'''Lachesis:''' We ''knew'' you would be!\\
'''Clotho:''' [''proudly''] [[TheOmniscient We know EVERYTHING!]]\\
'''Lachesis:''' Past--\\
'''Clotho:''' --Present--\\
'''Atropos:''' --and Future! [''aside to Panic''] Indoor plumbing...it's gonna be ''big!''\\
'''Hades:''' Right, anyway ladies, I was at this party and I lost all track of ti--\\
'''The Fates:''' We know!\\
'''Hades:''' I ''know'' you know. Anyway, Zeus--Mr. High and Mighty, Mr. "[[TheRollingStones Hey You Get Off Of My Cloud]]"--Now he has--\\
'''The Fates:''' --a bouncing baby ''brat!''\\
'''Clotho:''' We ''KNOW!''\\
'''Hades:''' '''''I KNOW!!!!''''' ''You'' know. I got it, I got the concept.
*** The last words in the movie are in TheStinger, and guess who says them? You got it:
---->'''Hades:''' What díya say? Itís happy ending time! Everybodyís got a little taste of somethiní but me. I got nothiní. Iímó Iím here with nothiní. Anybody listeniní? Itís like Iímó What am I, an echo or something? Hello? Hello? Am I talking to, what, hyperspace? Hello, itís me. Nobody listens.
* The brave, heroic title character that just awesomely KO'd a centaur that was more than quadruple his size (which is ''really'' saying something) being reduced to a stuttering, {{Adorkable}} {{Shrinking Violet}} when he first meets Meg.
** Just the centaur getting KO'd with ''his horseshoes flying after him.'' It's straight out of classic toons! No TrailerJokeDecay here!
* Meg's EstablishingCharacterMoment;
-->'''Hercules:''' Aren't you... a DamselInDistress?\\
'''[[DeadpanSnarker Meg]]:''' I'm a damsel. I'm in distress. I can handle this. Have a nice day.
* The surprised and gobsmacked looks on the Hydra's faces, accompanied by a confused "nyeer?" noise, right before Herc [[spoiler: punches the cliff down on them]].
* Hermes being captured by Pain and Panic. And later when he gets his revenge on them.
** Also Pegasus getting his revenge on Pain and Panic.
--->'''Pain:''' [''begging for Pegasus to not hurt them''] You know...I was really attracted to you.\\
[''Beat down ensues'']
* Hercules punching Hades' face inward when he's in the throes of a VillainousBreakdown.
* Hercules perks up once he hears that some kids have been trapped in a rock slide, since it means he can prove himself as a hero. Meg, not knowing the reason he was happy, [[WhatTheHellHero has this to say]]:
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Meg]]:''' [[SarcasmMode You're really choked up about this, aren't you?]]
** Herc then takes her with him and Pegasus, despite her protests
-->'''Meg''': No, wait! you-you-you don't understand! I-I-I have this terrible fear of (''Pegasus takes off'') ''HEEEIGHTS!!''!\\
(''cue Meg fearfully hanging on to Herc as Pegasus snickers'')\\
'''Phil''' (''still on the ground chasing after them''): I'm right behind ya kid! I'm ''way'' behind ya kid! Ooh I got a fur wedgie
*** Then when they arrive at the scene, Meg is left with her hair frizzled up and looking like she's about to be sick.
--->'''Hercules''': You okay?\\
'''Meg''': I'll be fine. Just get me down from here before I ruin the upholstery.
* Phil making fun of the idea that Zeus is Hercules's father.
-->'''Phil:''' Zeus?! The big guy - he's your daddy?! Mr. Lightning Bolts? 'Read me a book, would you, da-da?' Hahahaaa, Zeus! 'Once upon a time!'...
** Later, during Phil's song, he tells Herc that even if he ''is'' Zeus' son, he won't train him. Zeus convinces him to in the most epic way possible.
--->'''Phil:''' My answer is, TWO WORDS: [''gets hit by lightning''] ''OK...''
* When Hercules starts fighting the Titans, the Lava Titan spews some lava on Hades in an attempt to get Herc.
-->'''Hades:''' No, not me! Him! [''Ice Titan goes after Herc, who flies by Hades''] Follow the fingers, him! [''gets frozen''] The yutz...with the horse!
* "Two words: I. Am. Retired." Bonus points since the phrase in Greek is actually two words long. Especially because Herc looks baffled trying to sort out how that counts as two words.
* Herc defeating one of the Stymphalian birds...by locking her in a giant birdcage. Her disgruntled "are you kidding me?" look is what really sells it.
* Megara backs into a Cupid (or would that be Eros?) statue. Specifically she pokes herself with his "love arrow". She [[DoubleTake notices this]], and shows an expression of "does that mean what I think it means?" [[http://i0.wp.com/screencaps.us/199/7-herculess/full/hercules-disneyscreencaps.com-7099.jpg Look at it!]]
** As Herc leaves he gives her a flower and kisses her on the cheek, leaving her with a face that's priceless as she touches the spot where he kissed her; then followed by ''I Won't Say I'm in Love''
* Meg's introduction clues us into how [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] she is with several lines.
-->'''Hercules:''' Are you alright miss...\\
'''Meg:''' Megara. My friends call me "Meg", or at least they would if I had any friends. So, did they give ''you'' a name with all those rippling pectorals?\\
[''Herc babbles incoherently'']\\
'''Meg:''' Are you always this articulate?\\
'''Hercules:''' Hercules. My name's Hercules.\\
'''Meg:''' Hercules? I think I prefer "Wonderboy".\\
'''Hercules:''' So, how did you get mixed up with the--\\
'''Meg:''' Pinhead with hooves? You know how men are. They think "no" means "yes" and "get lost" means "take me I'm yours"! [''does a mock swooning pose to Herc'']\\
(confused, Herc just glances back at Pegusas, who just snorts with irritation)\\
'''Meg:''' (beat) Don't worry, Shorty here [[TheTalk can explain it to you.]]
* Thalia the Muse is full of them, especially during the "I Won't Say I'm In Love" sequence, where she waves the flower at Meg and is ignored, she ends up dangling from the 'ceiling' the others have raised up, she's held up by the others during the line "you (got) (got) got it bad," and how her head isn't attached to the rest of her bust, which results in her lounging on the column.
* The Swedish dub of "Zero to Hero" mentions Creator/{{MTV}} ''[[AnachronismStew by name]]''.

!!The animated series
* In Hercules and the Big Kiss: "Cassie! There's an armed youth and a flying horse here to see you!"
* Aphrodite has her own theme song. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKjWakMfjJY It plays every time she enters]] and Hades even mocks it! And Cupid later sends Hercules and Hermes on a quest to get it out of his head.
* The Hercules/Aladdin {{Crossover}}: "[[EvilLaugh What is that]], [[LampshadeHanging some kind of bronchial thing?]]"
* In the series, Bob the disembodied voice narrator is informed by the Muses that everyone gets a day off to celebrate Titan Smiting Day, including him. Later during a local festival, we see four celebratory hats floating through the air which apparently belong to Bob, his wife and two kids, who thank him for taking them to the festival glad that he got the day off from "narrating." Pegasus looks absolutely perplexed at this sight.
* Also from the series, specifically "Hercules and the Big Show", Zeus gives Herc a lightning bolt with this comment, in reference to Hades:
-->I think it's time my son tried his hand at the family business -- smiting the wicked.
** From earlier:
-->'''Hercules''': Would you mind [running some reels]?
-->'''Hermes''': [[DeadpanSnarker That depends; do I have to watch it?]]
* Another from the series, we have this masterful GilliganCut from "Tapestry of Fate":
-->'''Icarus''': Oh relax! The worst [the Fates] could say is "no"!
-->(''cuts to Herc and Icarus in the Fates' chamber'')
-->'''The Fates''': '''''NEVER!!!'''''
-->'''Icarus''': (''aside to Hercules'') Is that worse than a "no"? [[LampshadeHanging I can't tell...]]
* Any moment between Ares and Athena, who are in a bitter SiblingRivalry, and frequently torment each other.
** The fact that Ares's and Athena's rivalry has a theme song complete with the EarWorm ''dueling deities... duuueling deitiieees''.
* In one episode, Ares commissions a weapon from Hephaestus which he names the Armageddon Bow. He specifically requested a really manly kind of weapon. Towards the end Ares finally learns that not only is the bow sapient, but has the personality of a pacifist, ''talkative'', woman. [[{{Understatement}} He's not pleased.]]
-->'''Ares''': [[SayMyName HEPHAESTUS!]]
-->'''Hephaestus''': *Hears him all the way down in the forge and laughing to himself* A ''girl'' bow. Hehe, I kill myself.
* "In Hercules and the Romans," the narrator states that Rome is a bright, intellectual city... but it turns out its citizens and founders are dim-witted.
** The founders, Romulus and Remus, sent out an ad so their city wouldn't be godless. It goes as well as you expect when the Egyptian gods show up. And then Zeus and some of the Greek gods show up.
** Icarus begins giving Roman names to the Greek gods... cut to Hades, angered that he's called "Pluto."
---> '''Hades''': I wouldn't name my dog Pluto.
* Circe's entrance on the beach which makes every man swoon over her. The narrator even gets enchanted and one of the Muses takes notice.
* Hercules playing volleyball and hitting the ball with such force that it hits Hades in the underworld. He pops out of the sand to angrily vent and slam the ball back at Hercules.
* Hades proceeding to take over Athens. He assigns the worse torments to the citizens. What does he assign Cassandra? Cut to a perky Home Economics teacher singing a song about being a housewife and Cassandra being the sole student.
--> '''Cassandra''' ''(Horrified)'': Oh, he's good.
* Hercules traveling around the cold country of Greenland and wondering aloud that if this is Greenland, then they don't want to know what Iceland is like. Cut to a very tropical Iceland with a residence saying that they call it Iceland to keep tourists away.
* In ''Hercules and the Arabian Night'', Jafar kidnaps Abu by luring him into an alleyway with bananas. And then Pain lures Icarus into an alleyway... ''also with bananas''.
