Funny: Planes, Trains and Automobiles
  • The rental agent's response to Neal's tirade. If you are desperate to know what it is, here: "You're fucked." But seriously, it's better not to ruin it and actually watch the movie.
  • After being forced to share a bed, Neal and Del wake up in a position that no two straight men should ever find themselves waking up in. (They both were simultaneously dreaming about being back home with their wives). There's a reason the special edition DVD is called The "Those Aren't Pillows" Edition.
  • The scene where the duo's car ends up running the gauntlet between two oncoming semi-trucks at freeway speed.
    • And following that, the scene where the car catches fire, which they're laughing about, and the dialogue between Neal and Del about Neal's credit card:
    Neal: How could you rent the thing without a credit card anyway? I mean you could but how could you?
    Del: Oh I gave this gal behind the counter a set of shower curtain rings. (laughs)
    Neal: You can't rent a car with shower curtain rings, Del.
    Del: (stops laughing) Well, uh, somehow your diner's club card wound up in my wallet and I just...
    Neal: You STOLE it!
    Del: Not exactly.
    Neal: You stole it! I knew you stole it. You stole the card and then you rented a car and you burned it up! I knew you stole it.
    Del: No I didn't! I found it in my wallet! I thought maybe you put it there.
    Neal: WHY WOULD I PUT IT THERE?
    Del: Kindness?
    Neal: KINDNESS?! KINDNESS?! You stole it! He stole it!
    Del: No I didn't! No I didn't! I was gonna send it back to you! With whatever the rental car charge was, plus interest! But you didn't give me your address. What was I supposed to do? You just ditched me! I had no money, I had no cards, I had nothing!
    Neal: (grabs Del) Give it back!
    Del: I can't!
    Neal: (begins shaking him) Why not?!
    Del: Because!
    Neal: (shakes him some more) Because why?!
    Del: Because when we stopped to gas up, I put the card back in your wallet.
    (Neal's wallet is in the glove compartment in the now burning car. He and Del turn and look at it, before Neal groans and slumps against Del)
    Del: Are you mad at me? (Neal slugs him in the gut and trips over his trunk)
  • The Mess Around.
