Funny / Hercules: The Legendary Journeys

  • Atalanta may have appeared in only three episodes, but those three episodes all had funny moments.
    • "Ares" has Hercules Distracted by the Sexy during their arm-wrestling match. Atalanta then quips that he's "as much a man as he is a god".
    • "Let The Games Begin" has her doing an Effortless Amazonian Lift on Herc as a surprise greeting. Oh, and her nephew's Jaw Drop when she takes off her Clark Kent Outfit.
    • "If I Had A Hammer" has her shutting Salmoneus up with a punch to the chest as Sal was talking about her physical prowess.
  • Talking about Salmoneus, any scene where he shows up (or even gets mentioned) can split your sides.
  • "One Fowl Day" features Discord as a giant chicken and prompts arguably the definitive version of the old joke ever.
    Autolycus: To kill us all!
  • Hercules asks Ares' alternate-universe twin to distract the original Ares. Ares 2 tries to point out that he's a "lover, not a fighter". But when put on the spot, this inspires him to use his talent by getting Ares' henchwoman to fall for Ares... hard, I'd say Ares was pretty distracted.
    • Ares' reaction when he learns what his double has done.
      "You! I owe you for this!"
  • "For Those Of You Just Joining Us" was full of these moments:
    • Iolaus's "cheesy death montage" scene. First is spontaneous combustion, then being eaten by a lizard and finally "the old fashioned ACME way."
      "One of those days..."
    • Kevin Sorbo pitching how to kill off Iolaus with dignity, recapping "Faith." After the clips are done, we cut back to a bawling production crew.
    • Rob Tapert's idea of "Hercules in Ireland:" Hercules dressed in a kilt and playing the bagpipes, while a leprechaun dances at his feet.
      Rob: Sometimes, I'm so brilliant it's frightening!
      Melissa: Well, ya got it half-right.
    • Ares hits the bottom of Motive Decay, as he reveals what he wants from his do-gooder brother: "Merchandising rights."
    • "Look, everyone, it's Mel Torme!"
    • "You haven't heard the last of me! Wherever there's television, there'll always be B.S.!"
    • The scene where Hercules, posing as Kevin Sorbo, is driving along, when Ares suddenly appears in the car with him, holding a Hercules action figure:
      Ares: (high-pitched voice) Oh my god, it's Kevin Sorbo! (bites the action figure's head off) Oh, oh, Momma! Momma! Oh, oh! (tosses the figure out of the car) Oh, the humanity!
      • Hercules eventually boots Ares out of the car.
    • "What is with you and animals, anyway?"
      "Why, what have you heard?"
    • Paul is nervous about the retreat:
      Paul: I just got a call. They told us to pack our bags. They're shipping us out, aren't they? Why, Jerry?! Why?!
      Rob: Because we've all gotta learn to work together, to be creative in a crunch, to boost overall morale. By the way, Paul, your last script sucked.
      Paul: (dropping to his knees) I'll change my ways! I promise! I'll only drink when I'm awake! I'll tip all the show girls!
    • "I want action! I want romance! I wanna see Salmoneus in more episodes!"
  • "Love Amazon Style". As a Continuity Nod, Iolaus off-handedly asks Hercules if he knows what happened to Salmoneus. Herc quickly says, "Yeah, he got arrested for tax fraud," and they go on with the episode.
