Funny / Willow

  • The Human Snowball moment.
  • The entire scene at the crossroads where they meet Madmartigan; in fact most things Madmartigan says or does.
    Willow: He doesn't know a thing about babies!
    Madmartigan: No. But I... know a lot of women who do.
    • And of course...
    Willow: See this acorn? I'll throw it at you and turn you to stone!
    Madmartigan: Ooh, I'm really scared. No! Don't! There's a- a peck here with an acorn pointed at me!
  • Madmartigan Paper Thin Disguises himself as a woman to dodge an angry husband, only to catch the hulking oaf's eye (which is pretty darn chauvinist of him, considering he barged into the room in a jealous rage). Hilarity Ensues.
    Lug: Wanna BREED?
    Madmartigan: Tempting, but... no.
  • Pretty much any scene with the Prefect being the Butt-Monkey.
  • Bavmorda's army and Madmartigan run away from the two-headed dragon. Madmartigan takes a breather then realizes he's with the army. He has a Oh, Crap! look on his face, and runs back inside.
    • What really sells it is that Sorsha also notices and gives him an exasperated What An Idiot look.
    • Earlier, as said dragon emerges from the moat and Bavmorda's army backs off, Madmartigan thinks he has frightened them away... until he looks at the monstrous beast behind him.
    • The roleplaying sourcebook's description of the dragon's defeat is classic:
    The only successful tactic they might have used was a sneak attack on the heads, and no one but a foolhardy madman would conceive of such a thing. How fortunate, then, that Madmartigan was on the scene.
  • Willow has been trying to undo Raziel's Baleful Polymorph, but all he's been able to do is change the kind of Baleful Polymorph. Madmartigan has been elsewhere: he comes stumbling in, and Raziel's a goat.
    Fin Raziel: Good work, Ma-a-admartigan.
    Madmartigan: What the hell happened to you?!
  • The High Aldwin is freaking classic.
    High Aldwin: Go in the direction the bird is flying!
    Burgelcutt: It's going back to the village!
    High Aldwin: Ignore the bird! Follow the river!
  • Or this:
    High Aldwin: "The BONES have SPOKEN!"
  • Rool (one of the Brownies) gets hit with the Fairy Dust (aka Love Potion), and what's the first thing he sees? A cat. Hilarity Ensues.
    Franjean: (to Madmartigan) Don't I knooow youuu? I stole the baby from you, Daikini! While you were taking a pee-pee!
    Rool: We'll never catch up with those horses!
    Franjean: Then we will have to track them.
    Rool: That would take forever. Besides, even if we find them, they'd only capture us, stick us in cages, torture us and finally devour us!
    Franjean: Are you suggesting we go home?
    Rool: Nah, this is more fun.
    • Or this gem on seeing Raziel (in possum form) for the first time.
    Rool: That's Raziel?
    Franjean: I don't know, I was expecting something a little more grand. A little less...
    Rool: Fuzzy.
    • Rool having a nightmare:
    Rool (asleep): Rats! Rats! Rats!
    Franjean (wakes up): Rats? Where? (Panics and then realizes what's happening) Oh, Rool! You and that stupid rat dream!
    • Another one:
    Franjean: Then we go that way (pointing), to the lake!
    Rool: (Taps Franjean on shoulder, then points a different direction) That way.
    Franjean: You are drunk, and when you are drunk, you forget I am in charge.
    Rool: (echoing) ... you are in charge. Fine! Then which way do we go?
    Both: ... (pointing in the direction Rool indicated) THAT WAY!
    • A darkly funny moment with the Brownies, depending on your sense of humor; Bavmorda turns the heroes (except for Willow) into pigs. Willow exits his tent to see the army of pigs running around in a moment of despair, yes... but then we see two little piglets running around...
  • This gem:
    Sorsha: What are you staring at?
    Madmartigan: Your leg. I'd like to break it.
  • Blink and you'll miss it, but at the very end of the movie when the brownies are saying good-bye to Willow, Rool takes off the mouse-skull helmet he'd been wearing for the whole movie to wave it in the air, revealing he is bald. The funny part comes when Franjean notices and does a stunned Double Take; apparently he had no idea!
  • The scene where Willow and Madmartigan discuss whether or not it's a good idea to feed blackroot to a baby.
    Madmartigan: *baby voice* "Did you see what he did?! He stole our blackroot!" *normal voice* "Don't worry, I'll find some more."
    • There's a scene earlier where Madmartigan is making kissy faces at Elora Danan to try and charm Willow into letting him be a good father figure for her. In an amazing moment of serendipitynote , Elora makes a facial expression that basically screams, "Can you believe this guy?"
  • Rool and Franjean's Facepalm when Madmartigan is distracted by a combination of Sorsha and the Dust of Broken Hearts.
  • Fin Raziel goes nuts in a Laughing Mad way when she briefly gets the upper hand against Bavmorda in their fight. It's so out-of-character for her that it turns hilarious.
