Funny / The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

  • The meeting to nominate the delegates. Especially "The Bar's Closed" Running Gag.
  • Peabody ranting to himself drunkenly in his office, even down to talking to the jug.
    • For Black Comedy: When he returns to the office and continues rambling...and lights the lamp to reveal Valance in crew.
    • "Liberty Valance taking liberties...with the liberty of the press?!"
  • "I'll get it, Liberty!" Cue Tom kicking the Mook away.
  • When the Doc is shown Valance on the street lifeless, he calls for "Whiskey!" like it's a medical order. And then he drinks it.
  • During the statehood convention, the ranchers have a staged rally to humble the homesteaders, complete with a horse-riding sign waver storming onto the stage. While the rider puts on a rodeo show much to the judge's anger, the horse quickly takes a drink from the judge's water pitcher.
    • As the rancher's political stooge stands there smiling during the lasso stunt, one of the homesteaders shouts out "Now that you got a rope around him, hang the horse thief!"
