* When Telemachus asks Odysseus what kind of help they have for taking down the suitors, Odysseus basically says, "[[DivineIntervention We've got Zeus and Athena on our side.]] [[SarcasmMode Are you sure that'll be enough?]]"
* "Brother, who blinded you?" "[[WhosOnFirst Nobody! Nobody did!]]" "...Then we're going to go back to sleep."
* After his crew opened the bag of winds thinking it had treasure and caused a huge storm, Odysseus [[SuicideAsComedy briefly considers suicide as valid as an option to preserving through hardship]].
* The sheer, mind-boggling, testicle-shriveling amount of crap that Odysseus and his crew get put through when trying to get back to Ithaca can be viewed as hilarious in a cringe comedy kind of way. By the time Odysseus gets home and realizes that his wife has been badgered and harangued by suitors for a decade one could be forgiven for thinking that his wanton slaughter of them all was less about their violation of guest right and more just blowing off some steam of a morally unambiguous target.
