Funny / The Fisher King

  • The transvestite's dance for Lydia. Lydia's startled reaction and Jeter's delivery of the line, "You must be she." really sell it.
    Jack: I can't believe I'm on a first name basis with these people.
  • Parry rescuing Jack from the teens is both this and a Crowning Moment of Awesome. Parry shoots one of them in the nuts with a plunger for starters and proceeds to insult them before calling in his crew of hobos to frighten them off.
  • After rescuing Jack, Parry brings him to a den full of hobo's. The hammy way Parry and John the hobo address each other is priceless, as they both start randomly screaming and then stop to calmly greet.
    John: How are you tonight?
    Parry: Not bad John. And you?
    John: Can't complain.
    • Immediately after that, Jack's arm catches on fire from the bonfire they were sitting at, and begins frantically waving it around and screaming until he finally puts it out and collapses. Parry and the other hobos just stare and begin applauding.
  • Tom Waits' cameo as the disabled war veteran Jack chats to in Central Station.
    Veteran: See, I'm what you call kind of a moral traffic light, really. I'm like saying, "Red. Go no furthur." Bwooi! Bwooi! Bwoooi!
  • The Central Park scene. Parry decides to go au naturale, trying to convince Jack to do the same. Then he starts dancing:
    Parry: Free up the little guy! Let him flap in the breeze!
    • Then Jack's rant to Parry before that:
    Jack: I'm talking to the little people!
    Parry: Are they here?
    Jack: They say "Jack, go to the nearest liquor store and findeth the Jack of Daniels so that ye may be shit-faced! Doolang! Doolang!
    Parry: They said that?
    Jack: You are out of your fucking mind!
    Parry: Bingo!
    • The next part shows Jack lying down with Parry, still naked, in the grass watching the night sky, during which Jack says this:
    Jack: What if some homophobic jogger runs by and kills us to get back at his father? "Jack Lucas, found dead next to a dead, naked man. The two were dead and his companion was naked." I hate it when they use the word "companion." It's so insinuating. Probably boost the sales of my biography. The public has a fascination with celebrity murders involving nakedness.
  • The dinner scene at the Chinese Restaurant.
