Funny: The Prince of Egypt

  • "... That's why Papa says she'll never get married," says the oldest of Tzipporah's three younger sisters.
    • Plus, right before that: "Excuse me! Aren't these your camels?" And falling into the well right after rescuing Tzipporah's sisters.
      • And just before THAT? Moses is buried up to his scalp in a sandstorm. A passing camel tries to graze on his head, and after a groan of pain, Moses latches on to the camel, the first sign of life he's seen since fleeing Egypt. Clinging for dear life, he's dragged up to a watering hole for the SHEEP, and immediately plunges his head into the water to quench his thirst. He groggily raises his head, meeting the gaze of a ram with the greatest WTF face possibly in animation history.
      • And after that: "Please, you've cleaned every inch of me! WHOA! I was wrong!"
    • Everything with Jethro, the father of Tzipporah and her sisters, really. The guy is a giant walking ball of hilarity. Especially how he reacts to news that Moses wishes to marry his oldest daughter; he gives a "why not" gesture and bear hugs the couple.
  • Moses dropping the wineskin onto the priests, who promptly blame Rameses. Who then dumps the entire bowl of wine on them with a look that just screams, 'Why the hell not?'
    Priest #1: Aaagh, my new thing!
    Priest #2: I am so upset!!
    • Moses offering him the rest of it helps.
    Moses: [holding out the bowl with a grin] You might as well.
  • "You don't think we'll get in trouble for this, do you?"
    • Almost immediately after, we see Seti chewing their asses off about what they've done.
      Seti: Why do the gods torment me with such reckless, destructive, blasphemous sons!?
    • Later in the same conversation:
      Seti: Have I taught you nothing?
      Hotep: You mustn't be so hard on yourself, Your Majesty; you're an excellent teacher.
      Huy: Its not your fault your sons learned nothing.
    • And later on, the same thing occurs at the party:
      Moses: Don't worry, no one will even notice us come in!
      [they walk in, everyone is looking at them]
      Rameses: ... Nobody will even notice.
      Moses: [guilty laugh]
    • And to top it all, their mother immediately realises that they're both late and calmly tells them what just happened under the cover of greeting them with a hug.
  • The priests' attempt to mimic Moses turning the river to blood by making the Ancient Egyptian equivalent of a powder drink.
  • When the Hebrews are traveling through the parted Red Sea, an astonished camel rests its head on Aaron's shoulders. Aaron commiserates.
    Aaron: Yeah, me too.
  • When a fully adult Moses and Rameses are discussing their childhood and reminiscing about switching the heads of the temple idols. Overall, itís a very sad scene showing how vast a chasm has grown between their relationship and perspectives, but Rameses details which godsí heads Moses switched and finishes up with: ďÖand the priests thought it was a horrible omen and fasted FOR TWO MONTHS!Ē It actually is sadóthat this still bothers Rameses years later when he didnít even like the priests, as proof of his father-pleasing guilt complex thatís about to ruin his lifeóbut the story itself is (and the priests are) so ridiculous that itís still funny. (And it doesnít help that Moses thinks so, too, as evidenced by his faint chuckle at the memory.)
