Funny: Moonraker
  • The gondola scene. Oh, the gondola scene.
    • Bond in disguise as a gondolier and using a paddle to pull up to land on his canoe, after driving his previous canoe on land. Then he calmly tosses his hat on the head of the canoe as he does when he enters Moneypenny's office.
  • Bond returning to Earth:
    Q: "I think he's attempting re-entry, sir."
  • "So, how do you kill five hours in Rio if you don't know how to samba?" Oh James...
  • Jaws preparing to bite Manuela, only to find a bunch of Carnival celebrators coming down the alley at them. He immediately picks her up and begins smiling and swinging her around in a fake drunken dance as the rest of the mob joins in. In some of the long shots it looks like the actress playing Manuela is Corpsing while trying to look scared. When Bond shows up and Jaws closes in to fight, a line of dancers shows up and drags him off. He struggles for a bit, then sort of shrugs and starts dancing along as he gets carried away by the crowd.
    • And Jaws had shown up dressed as one of the giant clown performers, so he sort of stumbled onto the scene and had to take a massive clown head off. During the rest of the not-fight, he's left in a sort of purple gown, polka-dot pants, and white gloves.
    • And when Bond and Jaws first catch sight of each other; Jaws grins and Bond tries to smile back, but it's more like an Oh Crap grimace.
  • Jaws flapping his arms trying to fly after tearing the ripcord off his parachute.
  • In Venice, Bond discovers a lab where Drax is developing nerve gas. The next morning, he brings M and the Minister of Defence to investigate. They enter the building wearing gas masks, only to find no lab, only Drax sitting comfortably at a desk.
    Drax: You must excuse me, gentlemen. Not being English, I sometimes find your sense of humor rather difficult to follow.
  • Jaws' "You have got to be kidding me!" look on his face when Bond gets away on a hang glider.
  • This quip from Drax, when he and Bond bump into each other again:
    Drax: James Bond. You appear with the tedious inevitability of an unloved season.
  • "Bollinger. If It's '69, you were expecting me." BA-DUM-CRASH!
