Funny / Paul

  • Where to even start? Half the movie is one long string of laughs, but any time Ruth tries out swearing is particularly hilarious.
  • The constant Ho Yay throughout the film of Graeme and Clive. Even when they have thoroughly demonstrated their Heterosexual Life-Partner status it is still played on near constantly for laughs.
  • The ultimate reason for the trip north and its eventual outcome of what Hilarity Ensues. During the beginning part of that, it counts as a heartwarming moment for Paul.
  • The sword, a useful weapon it seems for the final showdown against the Big Guy, breaks while being pulled out of the sheath. The expression just makes it perfect.
  • Zoil's reaction to running out of bullets.
    Zoil: Motherfucking titty-sucking two-balled bitch!
  • Ruth's short but hilarious Mushroom Samba from having pot for the first time.
    "There's wasps in my brain!"
  • After Tara's house gets blown up, she looks back and can only manage this:
    Tara: My weed...
  • Also after Tara's house being blown up, Ruth's father gets caught in the explosion.
    Ruth: Daddy?! (runs toward her father
    Ruth's father: (slowly rises, clutching his gun)
    Ruth: OK, he's fine! (runs away to the RV)
  • The reveal of the the Big Guy, (Sigourney Weaver), followed by a shout-out to her most famous role ("Get away from her, you bitch!") and to top it all off, her death by spaceship.
  • Paul's increasingly bizarre attempts to ask Clive if he and Graeme are together without actually asking him. Ending with a joke about anal probing, naturally.
  • "Oh, shit! Sailors!"
  • Clive meeting Paul:
    Clive: Ha ha ha ha! (faints)
  • When Clive wakes up and finds out Paul is real.
    Clive: There's an alien in a kitchenette making bagels and coffee!
    Graeme: Did you want tea? Cos that's weird in America. They leave the bag in.
    Paul: (sings) Bagels and coffee! Oooh, Marmite!
  • Spaceman balls.
    • *SLAP*
    • Get your goddamn hands off my motherfucking junk! The ENTIRE theater was cracking up.
  • Paul's description of his pot
    Paul: This is the shit that killed Dylan.
    Graeme: Bob Dylan's not dead!
    Paul: Isn't he?
  • The last line before the closing credits. Delivered in the most nonchalant tone you could imagine.
  • Adam Shadowchild in all two of his scenes.
    Adam: Did you buy a book?
    Woman: No.
    Adam: Then fuck off.
  • A blink-and-you-will-miss-it moment: When Zoil performs The Ketchup Test on what he then realises is a puddle of urine, he spits it out immediately.
  • Right after Zoil bursts out of the forest and fires his rifle, the movie switches to slow-mo tracking of the bullet. The look on Paul's face, "frozen," is hysterical.
  • "Clive likes bo~ning spa~ce bea~rs!"
