Funny / My Favorite Year

  • The whole "Removal Business" scene with Boss Rojeck.
  • K.C. tries her hand at doing a stand-up joke. She fails, miserably.
    • It's the Duck Joke she flubs. That's like Joking 101.
    • And Benji gives her the number to a good accordion teacher.
  • Swann's panic attack on the moment he realizes the show he's doing is live.
  • Benjy's first night baby-sitting Swann:
    Swann: Alfredo, telephone the Stork Club, we'll be two for dinner.
    Alfie: You sure you want the Stork Club, Mr. Swann?
    Swann: It's been a year and a half. Surely they've repaired the wall of the bandstand by now.

  • Swann arrives late at the writers' meeting, stoned out of his mind:
    Sy: He's plastered!
    Swann: So are some of the finest erections in Europe!

  • Swann's rather suave way to use a restroom:
    Lil: This is for ladies only!
    Swann: (unzips his fly) So is this, ma'am, but every now and then I have to run a little water through it!
    (Lil, played by the unflappable Selma Diamond, can only nod in agreement)
  • Herb finally says something out loud. Even with a major fight going on, everyone in the control room turns in shock.
  • After watching this movie, you will never again be able to listen to the 1812 Overture without laughing your ass off.
