* From the film, as Harold tries to get Marian's attention in the library:
-->'''Harold''': "Marbles. Six steelies, eight Aggies, a dozen pee-wees, and a great big glassie with the American flag in the middle. (Beat) I think I'll drop 'em."
-->'''Marian''': "No!"
-->'''Harold''': "Shhh!"
* In the opening song, this moment, setting up Harold's bad reputation: "Ever met a fella by the name of Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" (In unison) [[BigNo "NO!"]]
* [[{{Malaproper}} Mayor Shinn]] messing up an introduction: "The Wa-Tan-Yee Girls of the local wigwam of Heeawatha will present a spectacle, my wife in which my wife, Eulalie [=McKecknie=] Shinn, will take a leading part."
* Harold actually convincing Mayor Shinn to buy a flugelhorn for his son, only for Mayor Shinn to realize he doesn't have a son and proceeds to rant and rave while Harold slinks away, only for Mrs. Shinn to come outside and think he's ranting at her.
-->'''Mayor Shinn''': I haven't got any son! I never had a son!
-->'''Mrs. Shinn''': I never said you did.
-->'''Mayor Shinn''': Well, what do you know?
-->'''Mrs. Shinn''': I'd certainly know if I gave you a son!
-->'''Mayor Shinn''': I'm not talking to you!
-->'''Mrs. Shinn''': Who are you talking to?
-->'''Mayor Shinn''': (Indicating Harold) Him!
-->'''Mrs. Shinn''': Who?
-->'''Mayor Shinn''': (Looking around and Harold is gone) Never mind...
-->'''Mrs. Shinn''': (To their daughter) Zaneeta, call Dr. Pine for your father.
