Funny / Yojimbo

  • Sanjuro watching the two gangs face off against each other in a cowardly manner. Even Sanjuro himself is amused.
  • During the hostage exchange, Yoichiro runs back to his family... and his mother promptly and repeatedly bitchslaps him, yelling about the trouble he's caused.
  • Also during the hostage exchange, Nui is being brought to Ushitora by Tazaemon, and has her hands tied behind her back on a rope so he can pull her along. However, when she recognizes her son and runs towards him, Tazaemon is dragged along the ground after her.
  • Inokichi accidentally helping Sanjuro escape while he's meant to be looking for him.
  • Inokichi tries counting.
  • The scene with the two drunken thugs fired by Ushitora. One hits the other on the head and the other starts whining in pain. It's so pathetic it's funny.
  • Unosuke's introductory scene:
    Unosuke: Want to see something interesting?
    (He casually pulls a gun out from his kimono and points it at the town sheriff)
  • The "Yay!" that Ushitora does when Sanjuro tells him the inspector is leaving.
  • Gonji's perfectly timed Big "SHUT UP!" to the cooper making so much noise next door.
  • Inokichi and Orin's comically desperate cajoling and bribing to make Sanjuro come and work for them.
  • Any scene with Hansuke, the completely corrupt local lawman, who has let so much of the town fall into the hands of one gang or the other that all he ever does is come out of his office every hour and announce the time. As the climax begins, he steps out to do the same, sees Sanjuro striding down the street out for blood, and promptly drops everything and runs for dear life.
