Funny: Hot Fuzz
  • Angel giving a flying kick on an old lady.
  • The scene where Angel jumps over four fences with increasingly acrobatic prowess, only to be followed by Butterman... who crashes through the first fence.
  • "Annette, that Sergeant Angel's coming into your shop. Get a look at his arse." That line on its own is funny, made even more so by Angel's reaction.
  • And the scene where the preacher gets shot in the shoulder. "JESUS CHRIST!"
    • What about the glorious, "Fuck off, grasshopper!" right before pulling out twin derringers from his priest robes. Doubles as a CMOA, no doubt.
    • The Bowdlerised version of that manages to be even funnier. Peas and rice!
  • Or the Inevitable Pay-Off for the Swan. They are vicious MFers.
  • That movie also had the single best He-Man reference ever.
  • The exchange between Ms. Cooper and Sgt. Angel when he first arrives in Sandford. "I trust you had a pleasant trip. Fascist!"
    • "Hag."
      • The funniest part of that exchange is when Angel corrects her & she calmly answers: "Fascism. Wonderful." May count as foreshadowing as the NWA kill anyone who isn't like them and doesn't conform.
  • On the commentary with Edgar Wright and Quentin Tarantino, we learn that the two of them set up a table to sell DVDs of Point Break and Bad Boys II at the film's premiere... and literally could not give away the latter.
  • In a service station, Angel realises he has to return to Sandford and do what he's gotta do, with the most gravelly action-hero voice possible:
    Cashier: Is there anything else I can do for you?
    Angel: No... This is something I have to do myself.
  • "It's only bolognese!"
    • "What's the situation?" "Two blokes and a fuckload of cutlery."
    • "FRUIT ATTACK!" *opens fire with heavy weaponry on teenagers armed only with pineapple*
  • "... Narp?"
  • "SWAAAAN!"
    • HOOOONK!?
  • This:
    Frank: I suppose you're wondering why we call them the Andies?
    Nicholas: They're both called Andrew?
    Frank: They said you were good!
    Danny: Also because talking to them is a bit of an uphill struggle, innit Dad?
    (one of the Andies throws a wastebasket at Danny's head)
    Danny: Fuck off!
    Frank: Thank you, Danny.
  • The living statue in the crypt.
  • Did you say cool off?
  • The way Bob and Dave say "Hello!" during the forensics scene.
  • "Crusty jugglers..."
  • "The greater good."
    • "SHUT IT!"
  • Leslie Tillers labiodental facial expression when she's interrupted by Angel: "'Course as far as I'm concerned Cousin Sissy can go fffff..."
    • also, "God rest 'im... God rest 'er... God rest 'im... God rest the lot of 'em..."
  • One of the special features on the DVD is a series of videos where the characters explain a few plot holes. The segments narrated by Nicholas and Danny manage to push the film's original Ho Yay Up to Eleven.
    Danny: I then pretended to be a bender; I cried "DON'T TOUCH HIM! ... Don't touch him..."
    • And from Angel's, when he's explaining how everyone survived the explosion.
      Nicholas: As for Danny, well, it's just a miracle that Weaver's blunderbuss missed all of his internal organs - and I think my lucky stars every morning that he's still here by my side! Right, Danny?
      Danny: I'm in the bath!
      • Also, most of the station's furniture coming from a defunct nuclear plant and therefore being essentially bomb-proof.
  • The conversation between Angel and Messenger after the play:
    Messenger: Sergeant Angel, Hi hi. Quick word for the Sandford Citizen?
    Angel: Uh, it was very enjoyable.
    Messenger: 'Cop Enjoys Watching Young Lovers'?
    Angel: I don't think so.
    Messenger: 'Local Bobby Gives Thumbs Up to Teen Suicide'?
    Angel: That's just grossly inappropriate.
  • Down t'pub, Angel's telling the story of his childhood and why he wanted to be come a police officer.
    Angel: It all started with my uncle Derrick; he was a sergeant in the Met. note  He bought me a police pedal car when I was five. I rode around in it every second I was awake, arresting kids twice my size for littering and spitting. I got beaten up a lot when I was young, but it didn't stop me; I wanted to be like Uncle Derrick.
    Danny: Sounds like a good bloke.
    Angel: Actually he was arrested for selling drugs to students.
    Danny: What a cunt. [with absolutely no change in tone]
    • During the story Angel mentions that there was one time when he was young when he wanted to be Kermit the Frog instead of a police officer. After finishing the story about how his uncle being a drug dealer and that was what made him join the police Danny thinks it's a shame, because he thinks Angel would have made a great Muppet. It even gets Angel to laugh.
    • Followed almost immediately by Danny demonstrating his little ketchup trick.
    • Earlier, Nicholas breaking into laughter when Danny's reponse to his Insistent Terminology is to utter the immortal phrase;
      Danny: What made you want to be a "Policeman Officer?"
  • Angel's look of utter horror at the end of the absolutely terrible Romeo and Juliet play when all the actors come out and sing.
    • It's not just him — pay close attention, and you'll notice that everyone in the audience has the same look.
  • When Angel tries to tell Wainwright he has a bit of foam on his mustache from the beer he's drinking, it's a small moment but just utterly hilarious.
    Angel: You've, uh, got a mustache.
    Wainwright: [completely indignant] I KNOW.
  • "Angel! Don't go bein' a twat now!"
  • About the final fight scene; it's awesome, but there's also just something incredibly funny about these aged, distinguished British character actors grabbing machine guns and shotguns and shooting up stuff.
  • "Have you ever fired your gun up in the air and gone 'aaaaargh'?"
    • "No I have not ever fired my gun up in the air and gone 'aaaaargh'!"
  • And this exchange with the Andes.
    "What else have you got?"
    "Now who's being childish?"
  • The completely deadpan judges for the Best Village competition (played by Edgar Wright's mum, Edgar's former drama teacher, and Simon Pegg's mum) watching Nick and Danny tear out in their damaged squad car... and then the banner behind them flutters slowly to the ground. They just look back at their clipboards.
  • Angel's increasingly aghast face each time he gets a Reaction Shot during the Romeo and Juliet homage. For that matter, the Romeo and Juliet homage itself also qualifies.
  • Doris. Just Doris. Some of her best bits include:
    Doris: Accidents happen all the time, what makes you think it was (eyes widen and she sticks her front teeth out) murrrrdurrrr?
  • Remember all those questions Danny asks at the start, and the answer to the majority of them was No? Well, not anymore!
  • "She's our only policewoman." "She's not a policewoman." "She is, I've seen her bra!"
  • "And Martin Blower?" "No, actually." "Really?" "COURSE HE FUCKING WAS!"
    • [clink] "Thank you Danny!"
    • "Ooh, 'murder murder murder'. CHANGE THE FUCKING RECORD!"
    • [clink] "Thank you, Andy."
  • Angel's furious tirade about the string of murders trailing off into embarrassed mumbling when he admits he was on the scene because he was buying Danny a birthday present.
    • And then this bit:
      Wainwright: Maybe it was you. Since you're such a big fan of murder.
      Angel: WHAT THE F-
      Inspector Butterman: Sergeant Angel!
      Angel: YES!... Sir?
  • A fucking helicopter shot ripped straight out of every Michael Bay movie ever.
  • "Forget it Nick. It's Sandford!"
  • The writers and cast of Hot Fuzz react to finding slash fanfiction on the internet by writing their own.
  • "He's NOT Judge Judy and executioner!"
  • Angel trying to question the very thick accented Mr. Webley. To translate, he brings along PC Walker. Who in turn has to have his gibberish speak translated by Danny.
  • Nicholas confronting Michael in the supermarket.
    Nicholas: Michael, Michael, wait! Is this what you really really want?
    Michael: [beat] Yarp.
    Nicholas: Eh, suit yourself. [beatdown ensues]
  • After Angel sees the age restriction sign in a bar, he looks around to notice groups of underage kids hanging out in there.
    Angel: 'scuse me.
    Kid #1: What?
    Angel: *Holding up his badge* When's your birthday?
    Kid #1: 22nd of February.
    Angel: What year?
    Kid #1: Every year.
    Angel: Get out.

    Angel: *Holding up his badge* Hey. When's your birthday?
    Kid #2: Uh... 8th of May, 1969?
    Angel: You're 37.
    Kid #2: Yeah?
    Angel: Get out.

    Angel: *Holding up his badge* When's your birthday?
    Kid #3: (high-pitched) Uhhhh...
    Angel: OUT!

  • Nicholas rides into town at the end, heavily armed, on a white horse. Or perhaps one should say, an avenging Angel riding a pale horse.

    Danny: How's Lurch?
    Angel: Uh, he's in the freezer.
    Danny: Did you say 'cool off'?
    Angel: No, I didn't say anything actually.
    Danny: Shame.
    Angel: There was a bit earlier on that you missed where I distracted him with the cuddly monkey, and then I said 'playtime's over' and hit him with the peace lily.
    Danny: *cocks shotgun* YOU'RE OFF THE FUCKIN' CHAIN!
