Funny: Journey to the Center of the Earth
  • Sir Oliver and Alec's attempts at conversation with Gurtrude while trapped in the father store house. And there reactions upon discovering her identity as a duck.
    Lindenbrook: A duck! (laughs) And I was about to try latin.
  • How about coming across a field of giant mushrooms!
  • I laughed when while some random woman asked Alec about his injures, she seemed to think she should be feeling more sorry for Jenny. And never mind about the poor guy who's got the broken leg. I don't think there is a miss-placed sympathy troupe, but there should be!
    Random Woman: Did you get your injuries when the volcano blew up, in the hot lava?
    Alec: Oh no, no. It happened in Edinburgh at our wedding.
    Jenny: He was in such a hurry leaving the church, he fell all the way down the steps.
    Random Woman: You poor wee bride. After all that waiting. It's been no marriage for you at all.
    Jenny: You underestimate Alec...
  • I can't be the only one that enjoyed the ridiculously long fall in the 2008 version. Screaming, followed by confusion, then a lengthy conversation about what's going on, before finally more screaming.
