The Legend of the Crystal Skull
The Phantom of Venice
It's really only applicable if you're a fan of Doctor Who but the main villain being called Il Dottore (the Doctor) is quite amusing.
The Bad News: You have to be smuggled out of the country dressed as a goat herder. Baahhh!
The Haunting of Castle Malloy
Ransom of the Seven Ships
Warnings at Waverly Academy
Mel: You just entered my room through the wall! I demand an explanation!
Trail of the Twister
Shadow at the Water's Edge
The Reveal that Kasumi deliberately hid her will so that only her two daughters could find it...and only if they worked together. This was a woman who had to mediate a lot of sibling fights.
The Captive Curse
Nancy: Howís Joe?
Frank: Heís great. He says hi. Oh also he wanted me to tell you something, hang on I had him write it down because it was too weird to rememberÖ There we go, ĎDear Nancy Drewí, he used your last name for some reason. ĎI am glad that you and Ned are back together. You go together like peanut butter and jelly. When youíre apart, itís like peanut butter and sadness. Or jelly and uncomfortable silences. Either way, youíre looking at a sandwich that no one wants, and probably no one wants to buy it ever.í
Nancy: That sounds very much like Joe.
Frank: Oh you wish that was the end of the note. It goes on: ĎA world where Ned and Nancy are not together is as disturbing as it is dangerous to the quantum makeup of our interstellar plant of reality-í You know what, Iím just going to stop reading there.
Alibi in Ashes
Bess lamenting her overindulgence in ice cream at the end of Alibi. She's watching a suspect at the ice cream store, and to keep her cover up she had to keep ordering ice cream. All through the day. It's even funnier if you never ate ice cream when playing asher.
The Deadly Device
The credits scene where Frank calls and- having discovered the culprit's true identity and fearing for her life- makes a desperate confession of love to Nancy over the phone...only to be cut off by the answering machine. And later, his sheepish retraction of said confession.
Deirdre: Hey you know, you should volunteer at neurological study places, because you have been knocked out a lot, my friend.
Nancy: I'll keep that in mind.
Deirdre: Maybe not the safest place to keep it in your case.
In The Deadly Device, you can ask Ryan to help distract Victor so you can snoop in his office by getting him to yell at her. After a few times of this she draws a graph of how it's negatively affecting her personal well-being, complete with doodling in the margins that involves a frowny face, a dog on a skateboard, and a dragon.
"'I am glad you and Ned are back together. You go together like peanut butter and jelly. When youíre apart, itís like peanut butter and sadness. Or jelly and uncomfortable silences. Either way, youíre looking at a sandwich that no one wants, and probably no one will buy it ever. A world where Ned and Nancy are not together as a couple is as disturbing as it is dangerous to our interstellar plane of reality-' You know what, I'm just going to stop reading there."

Failing the dancing minigame in Design. "Well, ahm sorry!"
At one point in Alibi in Ashes Alexei gets mad at you as Bess for breaking a vase in his antique store as soon as you walk in. He simply tries to shoo you off if you attempt to talk to him again. This exchange occurs:
Bess: You're really mean!
Alexei: I can live with that. Now go make friends with the outside world!
Michael: Oh wow... Let's try talking to him again.
Michael: Oh, oh, aww... I thought he was going to say "out" again!
Seeing him freaking out over the minigames in Secret of the Old Clock is simply hilarious. It's very odd yet funny seeing Michael, a typically mellow and nice kind of guy, freaking out over losing mini-golf and being unable to do the sewing game right. It gets even funnier with the chase scene at the end.
Specific moments: In the sewing game, during one of the failed attempts, his mouse glitched and sent it flying left and right all over the place. And during one failure at the chase mini-game, he yells EESH! SQUEESH! AJA!!
"Okay, well, what is supposed to happen is that Brady disappears to, uh...do whatever Brady does, write a letter to Jane Penvellyn, maybe...You know, I actually had to look up Jane's name in order to make that joke, that's a reference to Nancy Drew: Blackmoor Manor and, uh- I don't believe this! I checked on Wikipedia, and somebody's written a whole history of the Penvellyn family. Somebody has way too much time. They've got like a three-page article with the generations of the Penvellyn family going back- going to twenty-four generations. Somebody's got way too much free time. And this is from a guy who's made, like a hundred Nancy Drew videos, okay? Way too much free time! I'm sorry, guys."
And about a minute after that, in response to a certain discovery:
B-but I was the student of the month in September! Connie thinks I'm a self-centered jerk! (starts sobbing) Oh, this is not awesome anymore...
His explanation to the reason why he's "Student of the Month" in the game (It Makes Sense in Context) degenerates into "Ten minutes of freaking out later..."
Hearing him read through most of the opening letter for Shattered Medallion in a "tough German guy" voice, then belatedly realize it's Bess who wrote the letter and he has to switch to "perky girl" instead.
When showing off the death sequences in The Phantom of Venice, one of the "Good News, Bad News" endings for getting caught snooping in Fango's office is "The Good News: You only spent half a day in jail. The bad news: you spent the other half on the phone getting chewed out (and fired) by Prudence Rutherford."
Michael: Aw, man! Chewed out by Prudence Rutherford? I wouldn't want that to happen to me. [with Prudence voice] "Nancy, I'm entirely ashamed of your behavior! I hired you to catch these criminals, not get arrested and join them in prison!"
