YMMV: Monkey Business
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: While running from the ship's stewards at the beginning of the film, the stowaways encounter some unused musical instruments. They immediately pick these up to perform an impromptu musical number, then just as quickly discard them and start fleeing again.
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Thelma Todd, the target of the "you'll have to stay in the garage all night" joke, died of carbon monoxide poisoning in 1935, found inside a locked garage with a running vehicle. While her death was officially ruled an accident, circumstances were suspicious enough (she had blood on her face as if she had been struck) that it's long been thought she was murdered.
- What an Idiot: One of the gangsters arms Harpo and Chico.
