Funny: Pain and Gain
  • "Snatch that cabbage patch!"
    • "I'm going to headbutt you and knock you out, okay?"
  • "Don't eyeball me, boy. I see your mother driving up and down the street looking at me. I'll be your stepfather by the weekend."
  • Paul giving Griga's dog his severed toe.
    • Also Paul barbecuing the severed hands outside on the grill and cheerfully waving to a woman while the graphic "this is still a true story" appears onscreen.
      • That one's even funnier if you recognize the Actor Allusion. Wonder if they could smell what the Rock was cooking?
  • Paul convincing the store owner that he worked with Stryper
    Daniel: And people say Christian rock sucks.
    Store Owner: Who says that?
    Paul: Yeah, who?
    Daniel: Uh... Assholes, that's who!
  • Lugo and Doorbal trying to return a chainsaw to Home Depot after it gets caught in one of the victims hair. And yes, this DID happen in real life.
  • As the verdicts for the four are being read out at the end of the film, Lugo's reads "SENTENCED TO DEATH (PLUS THIRTY DAYS FOR BEING AN ASSHOLE TO A GUARD)"
  • Paul, after knocking out Victor when he tried to escape, gave this gem:
    Paul: Why'd you make me do that to you, Victor? I have responsibilities! Jesus Christ himself has blessed me with many gifts! One of them is knocking someone the fuck out!
  • (Grabs axe) "I'm going old school."
  • "Baby booties? Asshole!"
  • Doorbal's wife chewing him out about his small penis in court.
    • "That lady's a whore. Yeah you, you fucking bitch."
  • There's something about the way Ed Harris plays Ed Du Bois that will make you chuckle: a man looking to enjoy impending retirement is being dragged into a case where he is the Only Sane Man in perhaps the most literal example of this trope. That, and a Deadpan Snarker.
