Funny: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
  • The whole "Stealing the Enterprise" sequence, starting with breaking McCoy out of jail:
    Kirk: How many fingers am I holding up? (gives Vulcan salute)
    McCoy: That's not very damn funny.
    • Then, when McCoy learns he's "suffering from a Vulcan mind-meld":
      McCoy: That green-blooded son of a bitch! It's his revenge for all those arguments he lost.
    • Considering we now know George Takei is homosexual, this is Hilarious in Hindsight.
      Sulu: Don't call me Tiny.
    • Uhura's whole scene with "Mr. Adventure", from her epic stink-eye when he comments that her career is "winding down" to pulling her phaser on him and ordering him to get in the closet, while declaring, "This is fantasy!"
    • Scotty explains that he's rigged the Enterprise for a skeleton crew:
      Scott: A chimpanzee and two trainees could run her.
      Kirk: Thank you, Mr. Scott. I'll try not to take that personally.
    • The janitor in the Spacedock lounge, just staring as the Enterprise powers up and leaves its berth.
    • "WARNING: SPACE DOORS ARE CLOSED."
      Kirk: And... now, Mr. Scott.
      Scott: Sir?
      Kirk: The doors, Mr. Scott!
      Scott: Aye, sir, I'm workin' on it!
    • All of it building up to the Epic Fail of the shiny new Excelsior and its revolutionary drive, complete with sputtering engine noises.
      GOOD MORNING CAPTAIN
  • Even earlier than that, Bones' multiple failed attempts to pull a Vulcan Nerve Pinch on a Starfleet officer. Knowing that it's both him and Spock sharing the same mind during the scene makes it all the more hilarious with McCoy's over-the-top Oh Crap face.
  • Later:
    Kirk: "Fine, I'll kill you later."
    later...
    Maltz: "You said you would kill me."
    Kirk: "I Lied."
  • Scotty and the talking turbolift with the oddly non-Majel voice on the Excelsior:
    Turbolift: Level, please.
    Scott: Transporter room.
    Turbolift: Thank you.
    Scott: Up your shaft.
    • That voice? Nimoy.
    • The Epic Fail that is the Excelsior.
  • How about this exchange between Kirk and Kruge on the rapidly-disintegrating Genesis Planet:
    Kirk: You fool! Look around you! The planet's destroying itself!
    Kruge: Yes, exhilarating, isn't it?
  • Scotty finally lets Kirk know his secret to being a miracle worker.
    Kirk: Mister Scott, do you always multiply your repair estimates by a factor of four?
    Scotty: Of course, sir! How else can I keep my reputation as a miracle worker?
  • Kruge gets in one. After killing his previous gunner for destroying the Grissom (when he wanted prisoners), Kruge eyes his new gunner and says, slowly, with a Death Glare, "Gunner! Target engine only," then adds a dark "Understood?" as if to say, "Don't fuck this up, or ELSE." The gunner can only answer, "Understood clearly, my lord." If a Klingon ever shit his pants, this was the time.
    • The crew of big, tough Klingons who are clearly terrified of Kruge's pet.
