Funny: The Walking Dead
    open/close all folders 

     The comic 
  • In the prison, a former drug addict claims that he was the cause of the zombie outbreak. How? He was in prison again, and prayed to God for help to get clean, and the next day news of the zombies broke. What makes it is how the next panel has Rick and Lori giving a Flat "What." look before Rick changes the conversation with an awkward Okay.
  • While Rick and Tyreese are clearing out the prison, they enter the cafeteria expecting a hoard of walkers to come rushing out at them... Only to see a mostly empty room with 4 guys sitting at a table, eating meat loaf.
    Prisoner: Hey, you guys want some meatloaf?
  • Kirkman lives up to his statement early on that aliens would enter the story in issue 75, with a joke story about how aliens were behind the zombies, and several characters both dead and alive have acquired superhero outfits and are fighting them...and the Governor has become The Quisling and now uses a kickass mech suit.
  • There's something darkly humorous about Rick and Tyreese still taunting each other while both are lying in bloody heaps on the floor.
  • One random panel shows a zombie walking over a corpse and getting its intestine stuck in it, causing it to let out what appears to be a confused grunt before falling onto its back.

     The TV show 

Season 1

  • Shortly after leaving the hospital in the pilot, Rick finds his first zombie: a horribly rotted woman missing the entire lower half of her body, crawling toward him. Cue a man in nothing but his underwear, an open hospital gown, and a bandage around his torso jumping on a stolen bicycle too small for him and pedaling as fast as he can with a look of abject terror.
  • Rick, having just crawled into a tank to escape from a zombie horde, sits next to a deceased soldier to catch his breath. The soldier suddenly reanimates and turns to eat Rick, before Rick quickly blows the soldier's brains out, forgetting he is in a metal enclosed space. He was limited in options given the circumstances, however. The "funny" is the way it happened: both Rick and the reanimated soldier turn to each other and just pause for a moment as if to take a second to realize whats going on. It's hilarious.
  • "Ey, you! Dumbass! You, in the tank! Cozy in there?" Best cliff-hanger EVER.
  • "Guts" features a rather hilarious moment. After Rick performs his Due to the Dead for the walker they're about to open up Glenn stops them to point out something Rick missed.
    Glenn: One more thing. He was an organ donor.
  • Another one happens in the second episode, when Rick and Glenn are pretending to be zombies to reach a parking lot.
    Glenn: (When rain suddenly comes in and the zombies start to get wary) Do they smell us?!
    Rick: No, they don't! (passes by a zombie who eyes him suspiciously) Well, maybe...
  • Before that, everyone's reactions when Rick goes "We need more guts," and takes another swing at the zombie with the axe, which are by this point past squick and into, "Oh come on!"
  • After bashing Merle in the face with a rifle and handcuffing him to a pipe in retaliation for trying to use force to gain control of Glenn's survivor group, Rick refers to himself as "Officer Friendly."
  • In the third episode, after Daryl finds out Rick and T-Dog handcuffed Merle on the roof and left him there, and Shane has to restrain Darryl to stop him attacking Rick.
    Daryl: Best let me go!
    Shane: No, I think it's better I don't.
    Daryl: Choke hold's illegal!
    Shane: Well, file a complaint.
    • There's also this, when Rick resolves to go back and rescue Merle:
    Shane: Could you just tell me why? Why would you risk your life for a douchebag like Merle Dixon?
    Daryl: Hey. Choose your words more carefully.
    Shane: No, I did. Douchebag's what I meant.
  • Dr. Jenner when he's drunk is apparently quite the joker.
    "Hey, how far you think I can chuck this? Pretty far, I bet! *flings wine glass across the room* WOOOOO! IT'S OUT OF THE STADIUM!"
  • Glenn (and most of the other survivors) hungover in the morning at the CDC. Glenn is in the worst condition, he can't even stand the sight of eggs. It's hilarious. Poor guy.
  • When Glenn is kidnapped by the maybe-gangbangers who threaten his life, the others eventually find him—in an old-folks' home, in no danger whatsoever. T-Dog, grumpily: "We thought you were being eaten by dogs, man." Cue Reaction Shot from a chihuahua. Heh.
  • In the Season 1 finale, Daryl tries to break the sealed door down with an axe, but Dr. Jenner calmly points out:
    Jenner: That door is designed to withstand a rocket launcher.
    Daryl: (angrily stomping toward Jenner) Well, your HEAD ain't!

Season 2

  • In the second season premiere, the sign for the church lacks a specific bible passage and just reads "Revelations.
  • The look on Rick's face as Daryl dissects a walker in the second season premiere. Daryl then pulls a large, gory mass out of its stomach and simply mutters "Looks like this guy ate himself a ground chuck a few days ago or something."
  • In "Bloodletting", Daryl offhandedly telling a walker to shut up before shooting it.
  • When Dr. Hershel Greene reveals that he's a vet, Lori thinks that he used to be a combat medic until he clarifies that he's a veterinarian.
  • Daryl whips out a large bag of narcotics to help T-Dog with his infection.
    Daryl: Merle got the clap on occasion.
  • The scenes with Daryl and Andrea in the woods in "Save The Last One".
    • Upon finding a walker hanging from a tree by the neck.
    Daryl: "What the hell?"
    • Said walker's suicide note:
    "Got bit/Fever hit/World gone to shit/Why not quit?"
  • The well zombie might be one of the most hilariously disgusting scenes to date. They spent several minutes, nearly got Glenn killed, and busted the water pump to get the zombie out of the well... and it immediately rips in half, sending its lower half back into the well.
    T-Dog: Good thing we didn't do something stupid like shoot it.
  • With or without context, still funny.
    Glenn: I still got 11 condoms...
    Maggie: You see 11 condoms, I see 11 minutes of my life that I'm never getting back!
  • Glenn tells Dale his theory on why all the women are acting weird (see No Periods, Period on the main page); Dale wisely tells him to keep it to himself.
  • "There are walkers in the barn and Lori's pregnant." Dale's "what the shit?" reaction is priceless.
  • Andrea is beside herself, having a My God, What Have I Done? moment after she nearly kills Daryl, having thought he was a walker. Dale comes to console her by telling her not to beat herself up over it, since they've all wanted to shoot Daryl at some point or another.
  • Earlier, Daryl is being aimed at by Rick, who thinks he's a Walker, and he says "That's the third time you've pointed that thing at my head. You gonna pull the trigger or what?." Then, after he is shot by Andrea, the first thing out of his mouth is, "I was kidding!"
  • Glenn wearing Dale's hat in Season 2.
  • In "18 Miles Out", there's something darkly humorous about one point where Rick is hiding from Walkers on the ground. One spots him and starts lumbering over, so Rick shoots it, and it falls forward, on top of him. A second walker hears the shot, and follows, also getting shot in the head, and also falling forward on top of Rick, only for a third Walker to show up right on their heels and pin Rick under all three of them. At this point Rick's face is less, "Oh god I'm gonna get eaten!" and more, "Oh come on!" And then shoots the third zombie by using the mouth of the first zombie.
  • In the Season 2 finale, this line by Hershel:
    Hershel: "The Lord promised a resurrection of the dead. I was thinking he had something different in mind."
  • The otherwise unmemorable Jimmy had one when trying to use Gangsta Style in shooting training. After T-Dog calls him on it and he holds the pistol the correct way, he hits the target he was missing while holding it gangsta style.

Season 3

  • The third season premiere has Carl developing a Precocious Crush on Beth. When they initially infiltrate the prison, he seems to briefly consider taking the bunk above hers, but Herschel arrives to ask him if he's found a place to stay, flustering and driving him off.
  • Maggie grinning and asking "Did you see that?" when she figures out how to stab a walker in riot gear. Counts as a CMOA, too.
  • After lecturing the inmates on staying in formation, and aiming for the Walker's heads, the inmates charge at random, stabbing them everywhere but the head. The look on Rick, Daryl, and T-Dog's faces says it all.
  • Daryl's attack stance while poised behind Oscar. It almost qualifies as a Funny Background Event.
  • There's something slightly funny in Oscar throwing a barrel at Andrew.
  • The Governor of all people has one while golfing in episode "Killer Within": He hits several golf balls while talking to Merle, and one hits a walker and knocks it to the ground!
  • Carol, T-Dog, Daryl, and Rick catching Glenn and Maggie in the guard tower not entirely dressed.
    Funnier in that it's preceded by Daryl shouting "You coming?", inciting giggles from the surrounded adults.
  • In Seed, when Carol starts jokingly flirting with Daryl, who's standing on an overturned Jeep. He mentions that they should get back to the fire and this exchange occurs:
    Daryl: I'll go down first.
    Carol: (jokingly) Even better!
    Daryl: (flat) Stop.
  • In "Say The Word", while Daryl and Maggie are looking for baby formula to feed the baby, they find an opossum in a closet and Daryl shoots at it with his crossbow:
    Daryl: Hello, dinner.
    Maggie: I'm not putting that in my bag.
  • Daryl's suggestion of a name for the new Grimes baby to cheer everyone up: "Little Asskicker".
    • In the same episode, just the look on Rick's face when the phone starts to ring. It's an interesting mix of, "Am I going crazy?" and "Who in the hell could possibly be calling?"
    • When Carl finally broaches the topic of a proper name for Judith, the fact that he chose to start the conversation with with "Daryl's been calling her Ass-Kicker" and the resulting look on Rick's face. (Note that it wasn't until two episodes later that anyone got around to coming up with an alternative to "Ass-kicker.")
    • And then we see it's written on the box they use for her bed.
    • When Andrea hears the nickname, she immediately guesses that Daryl came up with it.
  • Axel telling Carol he thought that she was a lesbian (solely because of her short hair) during "Made To Suffer". Followed by Axel hitting on her.
  • Merle getting back to form by being a complete jackass with Rick's group, joking that Michonne and Andrea had a lesbian relationship, and that Michonne's jealous of the Governor.
  • The Governor asking a favour of Milton:
    Governor: �You keep an eye on her for me.�
  • Axel revealing why he was really imprisoned: he robbed a store armed with a water pistol. He also jokes that his brother had a money problem (while Axel himself has dice tattooed on his neck): his brother wouldn't lend him any.
  • Daryl acting like a little brother, trying to show Merle he's tough. The best part is when he awkwardly imitates his brother's spitting.
  • After Andrea and Milton manage to lasso a zombie, Tyreese and his group show up, and the dumbfounded looks they give are hysterical, as are Andrea's and Milton's "it's not what you think" reactions, followed by how casually Andrea walks off with the zombie.
  • Carl, Rick and Michonne's car gets caught in mud and then swarmed by a gang of walkers. All three look annoyed more than anything, and Rick just calmly tells the others to cover their ears while he cranks down his window and headshots walkers through the gap.
  • After Carl and Michonne's attempt to retrieve Grimes family picture from a local bar fails the first time, Michonne goes in the back and grabs it for him. After assuring Carl that he can trust her, Michonne then adds one more note.
    Michonne: [holds up some sort of rainbow-striped cat sculpture] Besides, this was just too damn gorgeous to leave behind.
    • Earlier, inside Morgan's stronghold.
    Rick: We're eating his food now?
    Michonne: *Shrugs* Mat says 'Welcome'. (Said mat covered a pit filled with stakes for intruders.)
  • There's a darkly hilarious aspect to the defenses, particularly those on the stairway. There are repeated notes along the lines of, "Turn back." "I'm warning you." "Turn around now." Then the final sheet just says, "I'm not shitting you!" leading to a tripwire, which is attached to an axe rigged to swing at someone's head. The kicker being that the axe has "Told you" written on the side.
  • Milton asking to see Hershel's leg stump.
    Hershel: At least buy me a drink first.
  • Daryl and Martinez's dick-measuring contest as they kill walkers together, won by Daryl thanks to a frickin' throwing knife. Bonus points for Andrea's complete look of "Is this shit really happening?" right before she kills the first walker for them.
  • Glenn being reluctant to have sex with Maggie on an outside prison walkway, as there are rotting walkers snarling just meters away. So she pulls him into what The Talking Dead later dubbed "the sex garage."
  • After Merle has kidnapped Michonne with intentions of sending her off to the governor, he is momentarily distracted by a group of walkers. After disposing of them with her blade, he asks why she didn�t try to run away and Michonne sheepishly smiles and says that she wanted her sword back first.
  • Merle just straight chilling to some Motrhead in a parked car, surrounded by Walkers. He even offers one a drink.
    • After this, it cuts to a shot of Merle's stolen car slowly rolling through a field with a huge herd of walkers slowly following behind him.
  • Glenn getting an engagement ring for Maggie by chopping off a walker's fingers.

Season 4

  • Hershel calling an impromptu council meeting.
    Hershel: I propose we move Spaghetti Tuesday to Wednesday. First, we just need to get some spaghetti.
  • When Carol and Rick meet Ana and Sam and have their guns drawn warily, Sam talks about the fruit they have and tosses them one. Neither moves and they all just watch it bounce down the stairs in the awkward silence.
  • Of all people, The Governor gets one in "Live Bait", with his response to a little girl asking how he lost his eye.
    The Governor: I'm a pirate.
  • In "After", Carl throws himself at a house's front door to open it. The end result is Carl knocked on his butt and the door unmoved.
  • There's just something funnily endearing about watching Carl eating a 112 ounce can of pudding on a roof while a walker trapped in a room behind him ineffectually tries to grab him.
  • The dialogue between Rick and Carl has this little gem:
    Rick: It's good that you found more food.
    Carl: I found even more, but... (sheepishly) I ate it.
    Rick: What was it?
    Carl: (even more sheepishly, a slight smile forming on his face) ...112 ounces of pudding.
  • Just the look on Rick's face when Michonne finds them and there's a quick, polite knock on the door. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming because he just looks so damn happy.
  • Michonne has a dream/flashback to before the apocalypse ended and in it, she stores her katana into her kitchen knife stand, even though it's far too small for the whole sword to fit.
  • Michonne attempting to cheer up a grumpy Carl by stuffing her face with Crazy Cheese. Even funnier is her awkward face-wiping when Carl doesn't react.
  • Daryl and Beth flipping off the burning shack in "Still".
    • The suddenness of it was even funnier. They're semi-drunk while having a somber conversation, then Beth suddenly says something to the effect of "we should burn this shack down", and it then cuts to them splashing moonshine everywhere to do just that.
    • The entire episode focuses on Beth's inexplicable quest for liquor, while Daryl gets more and more exacerbated with it as time goes on. Especially the part where Daryl smashes the peach schnapps and yells that her first drink won't be something like that.
  • In "Alone", Beth and Daryl take shelter in a funeral home. When night falls Daryl quickly claims an empty coffin as a bed, stating it's the most comfortable bed he's had in weeks.

The Telltale game series

Season 1

In general
  • As you may already know, you can choose Lee not to say any response whenever possible or the option "..." is available. However, there's a Let's Play dedicated for this. You can watch the entire playlist here.
  • Some jerk options from Lee can actually be assholishly hilarious. For example:
    • During a dispute in pharmacy in Episode 1, siding with Larry would result in this statement, "We do what you say! We'll throw [Duck] out and keep the group safe!" in a somewhat fiery tone. Kenny's reaction's tone while saying "Lee??! What the fuck, man?!" is understandably surprised, as if Lee suggested that all of sudden and out of nowhere.
    • In Episode 2, Lee's not only not giving the rations at all to any of Kenny, Duck, or Clementine, but also keeps them for himself; prompting Kenny to angrily said "What the hell exactly is your problem?!" By this point, you know that you Cross the Line Twice.
    • And of course, there's also "Fuck you, Larry! Eat up!" in Episode 2 as mentioned below.
    • Another is "Put the gun down, bitch!", again in Episode 2 as mentioned below.
    • When Clementine is missing, Lee can say something like this to Kenny: "A little girl is missing and you still think about yourself?! Go fuck yourself, Kenny, and grow the fuck up!" Kenny's expression is priceless, although he also immediately responded in anger.
    • Ask Molly about her past, and then respond with "I don't care about your story, Molly."

Episode 1 — A New Day
  • "HEY! ARE YOU DEAD?!"
  • Lee attempts to use a universal remote control... to open a combination padlock.
  • Talking to Clementine:
    Lee: Feeling good is... good.
  • Carley has a Crowning Epic Fail of Funny with the radio. If you help her try to get the radio to work, it turns out the reason why is because the batteries are missing. After finding some batteries and giving them to a slightly embarrassed Carley, she complains it still doesn't work. Flip the radio over: the radio won't work because she put the batteries in facing the wrong way. Seriously, woman?
    • If you choose her over Doug, then in the second episode she still hasn't lived it down after a three month Time Skip.
  • This exchange:
    Lee: What if my leg gets infected?
    Hershel Greene: (calmly) We'll just have to shoot you.
    (Beat, with Clementine making a priceless expression in the background)
    Hershel Greene: We'll clean it and redress it and it'll be fine.
    Lee: Yeah. That'd be preferable.
  • If Hershel catches you in an outright lie, you get a notification that "Hershel will definitely remember that."
  • When you rescue the girl at the motel, she mentions that her boyfriend got bitten, died, came back as a zombie, and bit her.
    Carley: GLENN!
  • When meeting Kenny's family, Duck is his usual hyperactive self. He shows up, breathless and excited, blurts something out, and bolts off, leaving Kenny to the introductions:
    Kenny: That's my son, Ken Jr. We usually call him Duck, though.
    Lee: Dodging or quacking?
    Kenny: Quacking.
    Duck: (offscreen, impatiently) DAAAAD!
    Kenny: See?
    • If you choose "Who names their kid Duck?" you get this:
    Kenny: Nothing bothers him. Like water off a duck's back, you know?
    Lee: Seems like a valuable trait to have, lately.
    Kenny: Yeah. But frankly, I think it's because he's dumb as a bag of hammers. (pause) But he makes up for it with enthusiasm.
  • Shawn's awkward response if Lee mentioned his ex-wife after the former asked about Lee's family.
    Shawn: "Ah. Oh. Yeah. Sure."
  • During the motel clean-out sequence, you can grab a pillow as a tool and look at one group of zombies.
    Lee: I've got two corpses and one pillow.
    Glenn: An age-old problem.

Episode 2 — Starved For Help
  • Kenny's face if you offer him food. Derp.
  • When Lee looks at the block of salt in the barn, Duck tells him it's a salt lick.
    Clementine: But don't lick it, it tastes gross.
    Lee: Did you lick it?
    Clementine: (Beat) I dunno...
  • If you told Clementine the barn smells like shit in Episode 1, she pipes up that the barn in Episode 2 smells like shit in front of everyone in the barn, including Kenny's family and even Andrew St. John, causing all of whom to stare at her and Katjaa to give Lee the evil eye. Lee then has to hypocritically admonish her for using a swear word.
  • If Doug is in your group when Brenda St. John offers the basket of biscuits, it cuts away from him for just a couple of seconds. The next time he's in the shot, he's chewing and crumbs fly out of his mouth when he says, "Sorry."
    • He then returns to the motel along with Ben, but eats ALL the biscuits on the way.
  • When Kenny and Lee are trying to get through a locked door;
    Kenny: Hey, Lee. You know how to pick a lock, right?
    Lee: No! Why would you say that?
    Kenny: Well. You're...you know...urban?
    Lee: Oh, you are not saying what I think you're saying.
    Kenny: Jesus, man, I'm from Florida! Crazy shit just comes out of my mouth sometimes!
  • At the St. John Diary:
    Larry: I got charm comin' out of my ass!
  • After Lee and Kenny's encounter with Danny in the barn, Brenda hears Lee approaching the farmhouse and calls out asking if it's Andrew or Danny. One possible response is a goofily Southern-accented "Yeah! It's me!" Somehow made funnier by Brenda's very immediate reaction: "Oh my god!"
  • And the achievement for finishing the chapter - "You Fight Like a Dairy Farmer".
  • If you ask why there's a wheelbarrow full of bloody, discarded clothes to Danny, he'll attempt to cover his tracks with a lie that holds absolutely no water.
  • The otherwise very tense scene where you try to warn everyone that they're going to eat Mark's legs can get some levity if, in response to Larry grousing "it's always something with this guy," Lee replies "Fuck you Larry, eat up!" The close up of Larry eating and chewing a piece of Mark's legs is as priceless as it is disturbing. Following this, Larry's Oh Crap, combined with I Ate What?, expression is priceless!
  • At the start of the episode, Mark and Lee are talking about why Larry dislikes him (Lee) - the player has a choice of reasons as to why Larry dislikes him, including "he's a old racist asshole". Later when Mark and Larry are fixing the wall and ask for Lee's axe, Mark will tell Larry to stop fighting with Lee as racism is outdated. It's kind of hilarious how Mark can't keep his mouth shut.
  • At the start of the episode, Clementine is showing Ben and Duck a picture she drew. Neither of them can guess what it is.
  • "Put the gun down, bitch!" is a response you can give to Brenda St. John when the latter was holding Katja in a gunpoint, making the response a case of Too Dumb to Live. Unsurprisingly, this results in a Non-Standard Game Over.

Episode 3 — Long Road Ahead
  • When Duck volunteers himself to help you find clues about the stolen supplies, he naturally compares himself to a certain sidekick.
    Duck: You're the world's greatest detective and I'm Dick Grayson, your ward! (beat) That's Robin!
    Lee: I know who that is!
    • If you decide to try and make sure Duck doesn't help you solve a mystery, then he'll decide to help regardless of what you say, and then he'll talk for a while before walking off to find clues. The notification increases it:
  • Early on, while searching for clues about who is stealing supplies, Duck helps Lee out and at one point you have the option to high-five him. If you do, a message appears on the screen that says "Duck thinks you are incredibly awesome."
  • If Lee shows the broken flashlight to Carley, the resulting conversation is hilariously awkward.
    Lee: Do you know anything about this flashlight?
    Carley: It's broken!
    Lee: I know it's broken!
    Lee: It uses just one.
    Carley: Everything should... What was the question?
  • If Lee shows the broken flashlight to Doug, on the other hand...
    Lee: Do you know anything about this flashlight?
    Doug: (starts to say something)
    Lee: (interrupts) W-wait, I know you know everything about this flashlight. I mean if you know anything about how it got broken.
    Doug: Oh. No.
  • If Lee shows the flashlight to Clementine we get this exchange.
    Lee: You didn't accidentally break a flashlight, did you?
    Clementine: No. Did Duck say I did?
    Lee: No. Did Duck break the flashlight?
    Clementine: I don't think so. He's just always blaming me for stuff.
    Lee: Like what?
    Clementine: Putting a bug on his pillow.
    Lee: Did you do that?
    (beat)
    Clementine: (mischievous smile) Yes.
    • Later when Lee is asking Duck if he's found any more clues.
    Lee: Have you found anything else?
    Duck: Just the chalk. I also found some bugs underneath the stairs. Don't tell Clementine.
    (beat)
    Lee: Okay... I won't.
  • If you gain Kenny's loyalty, Kenny's quiet Oh Crap reaction if you tell him that you're a criminal. And this lead to this conversation after a long pause:
    Kenny: (casually) It wasn't for touchin' kids, was it?
    Lee: Gah, come on, man!
    Kenny: What? I gotta ask!
    • Also before you tell him about it, "Oh man, what'd the she-devil do to you..."
  • After meeting a slightly nutty hobo:
    Katjaa: It's nice to meet someone normal for a change.
    Lee: (opens his mouth to say something, then changes his mind)
  • Ben's guilty, shifty-eyed look when Lee finds him eating the last of Chuck's candy.
  • If Lee speaks to Clementine after her first marksmanship lesson:
    Clementine: My hands hurt. And there's a noise in my head, like eeeeeeeeeeeee!
    • And don't forget the pout she makes when Lee tells her he has to cut her hair so it'll be harder for anyone to grab her (Walkers or otherwise). It's like >8[
  • If you look closely in the RV, you can see Banang sitting in the cupholder.
  • Lee complaining about Clementine's passivity towards Omid's swearing, "Oh, so he gets to swear?"
  • The conversation between Clem and Lee reveals that another man had tried breaking into her house during Chapter 1, by throwing a rock at the sliding-glass door.
    Lee: ...The door was open!
  • This exchange:
    Christa: Who the hell is into Civil War history anyway? Other than old white guys.
    (Beat)
    • It's his expression that does it. His grin stretches from ear to ear.
  • There are three ways that Lee and Omid jumping onto the train can play out: If Lee pushes Omid, Omid gets hurt because he wasn't ready to fall; if Lee tells Omid to jump, he refuses at first and jumping too late somehow messes up the landing; but if Lee is silent or goads Omid into jumping by saying all right stay here and they'll go with Omid's lady, Omid jumps first and still hurts himself, making it look like he just sucks at falling.
  • Talking to Ben on the train after exhausting all of his conversation options results in this unintentionally funny gem:
    Lee: Hey Ben.
    Ben: (Hopefully) Hey.
    Lee: See ya.
    Ben: (Looks away again, depressed) Yeah.
    • This could be intentional by the developers, because they want to give players a chance to give Take That, Scrappy! to Ben.
  • When you're teaching Clementine how to use a gun, she'll ask you if there's anything else she needs to know (e.g. holding her breath to steady the shot). If you don't respond, she'll give Lee a confused look and say "I guess how to use a gun then... being a little girl and all."
  • Recall back at episode 2 when Kenny assumed Lee may be able to pick locks because he's, uh, "urban". It gets a callback near the end of episode 3 where Lee and Clementine get to the locked door of a train station. As he gives her a boost, Lee thinks about lock-picking the door.
  • If asked if Ben ever went into Macon, he'll say that he didn't go there that frequently, and found it kind of pointless, unintentionally insulting Lee, who is from Macon. Ben immediately tries to save face and apologize.
  • When you have to cut Clementine's hair. When Lee says "Don't mope, it's a good thing." The look she gives him is priceless.

Episode 4 — Around Every Corner
  • Should you take Clem with you to Crawford, Lee will ask her to stay with Ben while he goes looking for supplies. Both lines in the exchange are hilarious:
    Clementine: (with a combination of nervousness and incredulity) You're leaving me with Ben?
    Lee: I'm not leaving you with Ben. I'm leaving Ben with you.
    • The funniest thing about Lee's line is that, given the discrepancy of competence between Ben and Clementine, he may actually be serious.
  • The dialogue options (aside from the usual silence) available when you and your group encounter a herd of zombies are, "Oh, shit," "Oh fuck," and "RUN!!!"
  • The Dev Team Thinks of Everything: If you used "manure" with Clem in Episode 1, if you say, "Holy shit!" in her presence, she'll primly remind, "Swear."
  • One of the segments of Chapter 6 is titled simply as thus: "Ben Screws Up". It is dismayingly accurate.
  • "So, now we're on a roof."
  • After Ben removes the hatchet that was holding the playground door shut, Lee asks "Where did you get that?" like he's talking to a 5 year old.
  • When the group is escaping from the school and Ben confesses to making a deal with the bandits, that caused the death of Kenny's family the group votes whether or not to keep him with them. If Clementine is with you she'll ask if she gets a vote. You can say "no".

Episode 5 — No Time Left
  • "You ruined that dude's face."
    • "Shut up, sweetie."
  • "She wouldn't hurt a fly."
  • The player can have a morbidly hilarious I Am A Goddamn Idiot moment if they attempt to grab a baseball bat to fight off a Walker, only to be reminded that they are handcuffed to a radiator. This goes double if you had your free arm amputated at the start of the episode.
  • Notification: "This is going to hurt." Boy howdy.
    • If Christa is the one to cut off Lee's arm, he can ask for her to do it quickly. The actual suddenness with which she jumps into it is terrifyingly hilarious.
    • It's even more hilarious if Lee starts to say something and gets interrupted by the sound of his own agonized screaming.
    • Even better is how he phrases the decision.
    Lee: Fuck it. Cut it off.
  • When asked how his arm is feeling, one of Lee's responses is "It was my least favorite hand, anyway."
  • Kenny reacting to the boat being stolen by Vernon and the cancer support group:
    Kenny: I don't give a fuck if their Make-A-Wish was a fuckin' boat ride, I'm gonna find them and rip their throats out!
  • When Lee turns around to see The Stranger behind him and aiming a pistol at him, one of his possible dialogue choices is a simple hello. This throws the poor guy off his stride a little.
    Stranger: Okay... This is civil.
  • The group is working themselves up to using a sign to cross from one rooftop to another.
    Omid: Well, at least it doesn't look like a deathtrap.
    (on cue, the sign creaks ominously, earning Omid a Look from Christa)
  • When Lee has to jump from a bell tower to the top of the hospital, he assures the group that he can make it. You can, however, choose...
    Lee: (to himself) I'm so fucked.
  • "Fuck it. I'm going for it!"
    • Also, if you wait a while before jumping back to the hospital from the bell tower, Omid will start shouting encouragement. "I believe in you! ...On three, okay? One, two, three! ...You didn't jump!"
  • Clem realizing fairly quickly that Lee is going to coat her in zombie guts — she says, "...Oh, no..." Then the little Squicky shivering noises as Lee applies it to her is oddly hilarious.
  • If you choose to take Ben with you and you decide to cut off your arm:, Ben faints from the sight of it.

400 Days
  • Wyatt Leaning on the Fourth Wall during his observations.
    Wyatt: *on a rear view mirror* Cant see shit.
    Eddie: Who are you talking to?
    Wyatt: Uh, you?
    Eddie: Oh. *Beat* What did you say?

    Wyatt: *upon finding a backpack* It'd be great, backpack if you could tell me if your owner was alive or not.
    Wyatt: Alright, I guess I'll just keep talking to myself out here because that makes sense...
  • Nate has a funny way of getting Russell to "loosen up":
    Nate: Come on, scale of 1 to 10... What do you think?
    (a female walker starts bashing on the passenger side window)
    Nate: She was slammin' before she was rotten, right? What do you think? Here, get a look.
    (Nate rolls the window down and the walker grabs Russell)
    Russell: FUCK!?! AHH! AHHH!
    Nate: Like a nine, right?!
    Russell: GET OFF ME!
    Nate: Maybe you got high standards.
    Russell: NA—HELP!
    Nate: If you say five, I'm gonna flip. Tell me, Russ!
  • Wyatt and Eddie's conversations in general. They're just two slacker-like type friends discussing and dealing with serious things in a rather humorous way. Eddie's story about Abigail is pretty much takes the cake:
    Eddie: You know, one time I was going out with this girl right; Abigail, you remember her. She told me that... she was five I think, her dad took her to the circus sideshow. They walked around for a while. Saw the chick with two heads. Saw a dude with lobster hands. Some kind of monkey-human with a dick for a face, I don't know. She also said there was a little girl in there the size of an apple, but I called bullshit on that one. The point is, she saw there was this guy standing there, buck-naked and singing this weird— Are you even listening to me?
    (Beat)
    Eddie: The guy peed on her dad.
  • Repeatedly tying at Rock-Paper-Scissors elicits some funny responses from Eddie.
  • Fuck Wall Street.
  • If you have Russell introduce himself as "Asswipe", Nate will mention it throughout the entire story.
    Russell: Leave me alone.
    Nate: Asswipe. Asssswiiipe. Come on, man.

    Russell: You're fucking rude, man.
    Nate: Asswipe's giving me fucking manners lessons?

    Nate: Asswipe can move!

Season 2

In General
  • For an eleven year old girl, Clem gets a lot of responsibility and even some authority from the adults in her group. She's the only one who knows how to turn off a windmill, using her cunning intellect to use the key in the panel. You can make Clementine lampshade this in Episode 3.
  • It's depressingly funny when the embodiment of human goodness from Season 1 is played as an evil, cynical, manipulative she-devil.
Episode 1 — All That Remains
  • Pretty much any time Clementine breaks out the Puppy-Dog Eyes, but especially against Alvin, who calls her out on it... before giving in anyway.
  • Clementine's rather deadpan attitude to sewing herself up. It's probably a coping mechanism, but it's still hard to not at least chuckle when she breaks the tense atmosphere with lines like "This Is Gonna Suck."
  • Luke is incredulous when Pete decides to take Clementine at her word that she was bitten by a dog, not a walker, and decides to bring her back to the group based solely on that. Pete counters that he has a good "bullshit detector" and that's why Luke he always wins at Poker. Luke is about to object to this but cuts himself off mid-sentence affirming that, yes, Pete has won every single time they've played Poker and he's just that good.
  • When Clementine sneaks into Sarah's room to ask her for help Sarah is afraid of what her Father would do if he found out. If you choose to ask what he would do Sarah says that he tells her he's disappointed in her and that he loves her and only wants her to be safe. Clem is not impressed.
    Clementine: That's it? Nothing else?
    • Even coming across her the first time can be unintentionally funny. Open the door and dramatic music starts playing until Clementine realizes that it's just Sarah. She then shushes her.
    • If you choose not to be her friend and check back at the room she's in, Sarah screams at you to go away like a child having a temper tantrum. Surprisingly, this doesn't alert the others.
  • You can invoke a G-Rated I Need a Freaking Drink of sorts by having Clem drink heavily from her juice-box before and after the particularly unpleasant parts of her arm-stitching.
  • If, in Season 1, you describe the barn as smelling like "shit" during your conversation with Clementine, during the scene in Season 2 when she drops her water bottle she'll say "Oh, shit!" instead of "Oh, shoot!"
  • During the window conversation with Alvin while you're sneaking around you can threaten to tell his wife to which he responds...
    Alvin: ...Muthafucka!
    Clementine: Hey! Language!

Episode 2 — A House Divided
  • People comparing Clementine to a girl on a can of peaches. She is not amused.
    • After the second time, you have the option of Clem looking at the can of peaches and making an expression that just says "Do I really look like that?"
  • While talking about Carver and his group hunting them, Alvin gives us this little gem.
    Carlos: We can't be sure. They might be tracking us.
    Alvin: Tracking? Who do you think they are, ninjas?
  • Clementine's face if you went with Pete and he asks for a cigarette. You can say they're gross and he'll get nasty and make her use her lighter. She makes a face like she's annoyed and frustrated.
  • On the bridge you get this choice:
    Clementine: "I'm not an asshole."
    Luke: "Are you saying I'm an asshole?"
    • Interestingly, this could be a Shout-Out to Survival Instinct (see Survival Instinct entry below).
  • While climbing up the Ski Lift, you can make another crack at Luke's expense.
    Luke:(in a comforting tone, with his arms out) Just look at me...
    Clementine:(Looks back down at Luke) You look like an idiot.
    Luke:(Folds arms) >:[ Just climb the thing already!
  • Just before you cross the bridge, when Clementine's having trouble pulling her hammer out of a walker's skull:
    Luke: Just give it a good pull. It'll come loose.
    Clementine: I know. I've done this before. Remember? In a shed?
  • Luke's meek defense of the cabin group if you say you're only with them because you don't have anywhere else to go:
    Luke: We're uh... We're smarter than we look.
  • Some moments when you're teaching Sarah how to shoot:
    • This instance of Clementine parroting what Lee said to her without really understanding what it means.
    Clementine:(referring to gun) It's just a thing.
    Sarah: What does that mean?
    Clementine: ...I don't know.
    • This:
    Clementine: Before you go to shoot, take a breath.
    Sarah: (Takes a REALLY deep breath and holds it)
    Clementine: Not that deep.
    • Aaand this:
    Sarah: What should I shoot? (Aims her thankfully unloaded gun at Clementine's head)
    Clementine: ! (Ducks) Don't do that!
  • Remember earlier when Pete said if Clementine ever tried to fire a rifle she'd probably get knocked on her ass? Turns out he was right.
  • Nick does a shockingly good impression of Carlos.
    Nick: They're probably over there talkin' 'bout me now. (puts on a Spanish accent) "Luke, he's becoming a danger to the group."
  • Kenny calls Nick "Vanilla Ice" during an argument. Good to know his wit hasn't degraded any.
  • In the scene where Kenny and Clementine are catching up, she has the option of saying Christa told her he was dead. He responds with this gem:
    (with a wistful expression) I am. This is all a dream.
    • That's a bit of a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment considering that later he appears to be losing his mind over the death of his wife and son.
  • When Walter tells Kenny that he and Clem were talking about politics and since he's from Florida , he should be familiar with it, Kenny responds with another gem:
    "Man, I know one advantage of living in the apocalypse is not having to deal with that shit no more."
    • This is also a Call Back to Season 1, where you can make Lee said to Katja about things that have been bad before the outbreak, like banks and politics, and how those "craps" are all gone.
  • Clementine giving a deadpan "ow" when Luke hits her affectionately on the back.
  • When the adults open up the panel on the wind turbine and can't figure out how to turn it off, Clem offers to do it while they watch the area. She can promptly take the key that's hanging on a hook inside the panel and use it to turn the big red button that is presumably the emergency stop. Just the fact that the adults didn't even consider whether there'd be something as simple as an emergency stop is inherently funny.
  • This exchange when Carver visited the cabin where there were only Clementine and Sarah at the time:
    Carver: "You know, you're not very polite for a little girl."
    Clementine: "And you're not very polite for an adult."
  • This exchange after the group left the cabin and Luke suggested he would check the bridge with Clementine, which Carlos wanted to oppose:
    Carlos: "But she's just... she's just a little girl."
    Clementine (possible response): "You're not my dad, Carlos."
    Clementine: "Thank god."
  • If Clementine doesn't help Sarah take her picture, Sarah will take the picture herself, making a silly face as she does so. It gets funnier when Carver finds the picture and shows it to Clementine.

Episode 3 — In Harm's Way
  • Kenny cutting off his restraints and getting ready to jump Carver and his men...only for the truck to brake suddenly and smack his face into the door, knocking him out.
    Carlos: Probably for the best.
    • Also, Kenny's plan for taking on the group of armed men guarding the truck: punch the first motherfucker he sees, then use his gun to shoot the others. He's confident that it'll go over without a hitch.
  • Bonnie gives Clementine a blue rainbow jacket as a gift to keep her warm in the community. Whether Clementine finds it cute to wear or not, Bonnie insists that she'll be the envy of her friends when they see her wear the cool jacket. Then Tavia enters and says:
    Tavia: Oh, there you are. What's with the ugly jacket?
    Bonnie: Tavia!
    Tavia: What?
  • Reggie's awkward way of showing affection to Clementine by patting her on the head. Looking at Clementine's unimpressed look, Reggie sheepishly apologises and promises not to do it again.
  • Reggie boasts that Carver's place has working electricity and asks how many places can say that. Only to be informed by Sarah that the place they came from had a working generator.
    • Best bit is when Reggie quickly cuts her off saying "This isn't a competition!"
    • After the whole extremely awkward scene, he comments "This didn't exactly go to plan. Probably should have made a plan."
  • Carver giving the group 'till 3 to give him the other walkie-talkie and then blatantly Moving the Goalposts by saying "3" just as Kenny gives it to him. It's not funny for long, though.
    Kenny: ...fucker.
  • Clementine's awkwardness if you ask Sarah if she wants a hug after Carver made her dad hit her. She even says she'll sneak up on her later and give one when she least expects it. All in a stilted, uncomfortable tone.
  • Troy's reaction when he walks outside and sees everyone, including the children, rubbing zombie entrails all over each other. Just imagine walking outside and seeing something like that without knowing what they were doing.
    Troy: What in the actual fuck is going on here!?
  • If you wait a little bit when you get your first dialog option with Reggie, he'll say "... This freaks you out."
  • Troy has quite possibly the the most hilarious last words in fiction since Craig Toomey in The Langoliers.
    "YOU SHOT MY DICK OFF, YOU BITCH!"
  • After the third time in a single episode that someone needs to be picked for an important mission, everyone looks straight at Clem. One possible response to this is "Why is it always me?"
  • Clementine and Sarah's reaction to Troy asking them how their bathroom break went.
    "Everything come out all right, girls?"
  • Sarita's calm and amused retaliation to Troy's Lame Comeback when she defends Reggie and Clementine.
    Troy: No one's talking to you...(stutters) Indian Lady!
    Kenny: Hey!
    Sarita: No, it's fine. I am Indian.
  • In the beginning, when the group is tied up in Carver's truck, Carlos is trying to convince Kenny that his gung-ho attitude is going to get him (and maybe others) killed:
    Carlos: "I am pointing out that, regardless of intent, there are consequences to rash actions. Something that he seems to be misreading as capitulation."
    Kenny: I don't know what the FUCK you just said, but I know it's BULLSHIT!"

Survival Instinct

  • Daryl explaining he's not the 'asshole' sniper on the rooftop.
    Daryl: I'm a different asshole.
  • The exchange of words between sun-stroked Merle and Daryl as Merle shoots the door thinking that someone's trying to trick him by impersonating Daryl's voice.
  • After Daryl brings food for an officer who locked himself in the prison cell and doesn't have the key...
    Daryl: What will you do when the food runs out? (officer is speechless)
  • Merle going on a detour just to get his drug stash. Daryl is not happy about this.
