Funny: Saints Row 1
  • As the crew are preparing to battle Tanya, the main character speaks for the first time:
    Johnny Gat: I'm gonna skullfuck that bitch.
    Protagonist: Hope you don't mind hepatitis.
    • What makes that scene even more funny is the fact that it happens in a elevator with calm music playing in the background while Benjamin King and the player are in total silence then suddenly Johnny Gat comes up with this gem.
      • What's even more hilarious is Gat's "huh?!" look after Playa says his bit. Up to that point he must've assumed he couldn't speak.
    • After a few drinks in the second game, the female Latin boss will call back to this incident like it was the funniest thing ever.
      • Speaking of which, when she brings up her balls. Yeah, her balls.
  • Every time the Playa opens his mouth, it's ALWAYS during the funniest parts of the game, which are always the final missions too: for instance, after the final Los Carnales mission where Dex and Playa blow up the plane Angelo Lopez is trying to flee Stilwater in, Luz Avalos drives up, as she was supposed to leave with Angelo. Dex looks in her shopping bag, and we get treated to this scene:
    Dex: So what's in here? Guns? Money? Some uncut shit? (Looks in the bag) SHOES?!
    Luz: Actually, they're this season's new—
    Playa: BULLSHIT! That's LAST year's fall collection!
    Luz: (nervously laughs) That's not true-
    Playa: (cocks gun)
  • To round off the gangs, after the Playa blows up the truck Joseph Price tried to run him over with, Julius calls him:
    Julius: That was an hell of an explosion! You okay, Playa?
    Playa: I got ran over by a fuckin' truck, what you think!?
    Julius: Oh, quit bein' a bitch!
    Playa: (double takes at the phone)
  • On a Similar Note, the "True Ending" of the game, where the Protagonist interrupts the final speech with:
    Protagonist: Yo, can we speed this shit up? I wanna go to Freckle Bitch's.
  • After the failed Carnales assault on Third Street, Troy lights his cigarette on Victor's dead, burning body while Dex looks on in surprise and disgust.
    Troy: What?
    • This is made even funnier when it's revealed Troy is an undercover cop. One imagines he and some of his friends have been wanting to do that to Victor for a long time.
  • The end of the Vice Kings mission in which, purely to give Warren Williams a "fuck you", Johnny blows up Kingdom Come Records a second time.
  • The Freckle Bitch ads are a hoot, especially when she announces a free gift for the girls: a pearl necklace.
  • In a bit of Mood Whiplash, the part where Lin and the Playa are locked in a car trunk has this exchange:
    Lin: -Hey! I think we stopped moving! Are you listening? Are you even alive? Say something!
    (audible smack)
    Lin: Ow! I'll take that as a yes... Where the fuck's my lighter...
  • Whenever Johnny appears in the Vice Kings arc, he's either a bringer of these, or a bringer of awesome moments. Him and Aisha bickering fall into the former, but one of his best moments in the whole game is in Best Laid Plans, in which he calls out Tanya Winters and Tony Green. In context, the two trapped him and Playa in an abandoned police station, and with Vice Kings and police alike closing in for the kill, Johnny needs to distract the two long enough to find an opportunity for the Playa to escape.
    Tanya: How ‘bout you drop the gun, honey?
    Tony: (pumps shotgun) I’d listen to the lady if I was you.
    Johnny: Well of course you would, you being her bitch!
    Tony: Watch your fucking mouth!
    Johnny: (casually drops his shotgun) Hey, no need to be pushy...
  • The following mission (Green With Envy), is another double whammy on the Playa’s part, because, in order to find where Tanya and Tony are keeping the captured Johnny, the Playa has to kill and impersonate Tanya’s driver before she’s done rimming out Warren Williams. Ignoring the fact the Playa doesn’t even BOTHER taking the driver’s uniform (or that Tanya doesn't even TRY to notice this), it turns out she has some time before Tony expects her back… so she decides to do a little shopping first! While driving her to the Impressions Clothing Store, and then to Friendly Fire to pick up a “present for Tony” (a big ass Krukov rifle, she vapidly chatters away (either to a friend over the phone, or to you – you decide what’s funnier), where she verbally smacks Tony, Warren AND King! Adding to these whacky hijinks, it turns out Troy’s crew weren’t aware of Julius’ rescue plan, and just HAD to try a hit Tanya, forcing the Playa to lose them without killing them. When you FINALLY get to Tony’s condo, you get a nice little bit of revenge against Tanya…
    • This sets up a couple of brick jokes: the obvious one is Tanya gossiping that "I can't believe Luz is still wearing last season's heels!" The second one what happens to Anthony's "present". You know the gun Tanya tries shooting you with at the end of All The King's Men? Now, knowing the fact Anthony didn't get his present, who's still willing to bet the Krukov she was wielding was just another weapon she randomly got?
    • Finally, when you kill Tony, you get this nice little cutscene, appropriately titled “Anger Management”:
      Johnny: ( still tied up to the chair that’s currently tipped over on the floor) Hey, not to be pushy or nothin'… but how 'bout you get me out of this fuckin' chair!?
      Playa: (hurriedly tips the chair back up)
      Johnny: 'Bout fuckin' time you got here.
      (Playa unties the ropes holding Johnny down, and has to support him due to his shot out leg)
      Johnny: Where's Green?
      (Johnny sees Tony’s corpse, takes Playa's gun, unloads the remaining ammo into Tony, and then throws the empty gun at the body)
      Johnny: That's much better.
