Funny / The Untouchables

The 1987 film

  • Wallace taking a sip from a barrel of liquor at the end of his Let's Get Dangerous! scene, a bit of Fridge Brilliance behind his satisfaction implies that he's enforcing a law he doesn't believe in.
    • Given that he was an accountant who'd just single-handedly stormed a bridge full of gangsters, he might have just needed some liquid courage.
  • Nitti "is in the car"
  • Malone's comment on the stammering first potential recruit: "There goes the next chief of police."
  • Malone recruiting George Stone.
    Malone: I said you're a lying member of a no-good race.
    Stone knocks the clipboard out of his hands and points his gun under his chin.
    Stone: That's a lot better than you, you stinking Irish pig.
    Malone:... Oh I like him.
    Ness: Yeah I like him too.
  • Malone gets fed up chasing one of Capone's men at the Canada border:
    Malone:(shoots Tommy gun in the air, causing man he's chasing to stop and put his hands in the air) Alright! Enough of this running shit!
  • Capone's baseball bat scene? Horrifying. The other gangsters' extremely calm and mildly discomforted reactions? Priceless. Even when Capone is smacking a traitor to death, many simply frown or furrow their brows, while the waiters are completely indifferent while watching. Maybe this has happened before...
