Funny: The Color Purple

Film

  • Celie finally gets to meet her idol, Shug Avery. Shug's (drunken) response upon meeting Celie?
    Shug Avery: You sure is UGLY. * cackles*
  • Celie cooking a sober Shug breakfast only to see if she would throw it at the hallway wall.
  • Harpo telling his father that he was kicked by a mule, when really it was Sophia who punched him dead in the eye.
  • And of course:
    Miss Millie: You wanna come work for me, be my maid?
    Sofie: Hell no.
  • Celie taking the small victory of watching Mister stumble around the kitchen, and then taking off like Road Runner when he tries to light the stove.
  • Squeak confronting Sofia at Harpo's is classic. After interrupting her dance with Harpo, calling Sofia a heifer, and SLAPPING HER IN THE FACE, Squeak is lucky to merely be knocked into the trapdoor.

Musical

  • There really shouldn't be any in a musical like this. But Celie's face when she hears her husband referred to as "Albert" is (or should be) priceless.
