Added DiffLines:

* Let's be real here. Given Che's status as the resident permanent DeadpanSnarker means that pretty much any time he opens his mouth, it's bound to be at least a little funny... Highlights other than those not mentioned above include him not even bothering to learn the names of Eva's suitors and instead just calling them "whoever"; ''everything'' he says in "Peron's Latest Flame"; and this line:
-->'''Che''': We'd love you to stay but you'd be in the way/So do up your trousers and '''go'''.
* The SnarkToSnarkCombat of "''The Waltz For Eva And Che''" is quite funny too. At least before it descends into {{Tearjerker}} mode...

Added DiffLines:

** "I don't think she'll make it to England now"/"It wasn't on the schedule anyhow"


--> '''Magaldi''': [[SocialClimber Neither has yours.]]

-->'''Che''': In June of '43, there was a military coup/Behind it was a gang called the GOU/Who did not feel the need to be elected./They had themselves a party at the point of a gun/They were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun/A bomb or two and very few objected.

* ''"Eva and Magaldi"/"Eva, Beware of the City"'' has Che fire one at Magaldi, shocked that Eva sees more than a fling in him
--> '''Che''': Do all your one night stands give you this much trouble?
* ''"Charity Concert"'' has Magaldi fire one at Eva, at the event in the company a high-ranking officer.
--> '''Eva''': Your act hasn't changed much.

** "Italy's unconvinced by Argentine glory/They equate Peron with Mussolini - can't think why!" (in the film, [[Creator/AntonioBanderas Antonio Banderas]] gives a priceless look at the camera.

** "She filled a bullring/forty-five thousand seater/but if you're prettier than General Franco, that's not hard...

Added DiffLines:

* "''The Lady's Got Potential''" is pretty darn funny all the way through, given the [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan snark]]. Just the first verse tells you it will be an amusingly cynical re-telling of events.

** One especially amusing moment is during a later stanza of the song in which several of Eva's exes are collectively singing their woes of being tossed aside, and Che, as a busboy in a restaurant, briefly stands with them, resting his forearm on the shoulder of one of her exes, and joins them to sing "Oh but it's sad when a love-affair dies" [[RhymesOnADime with an expression as smarmy]] [[NarmCharm utterly narmy]] before shooing them all out and closing the French-doors behind the dismissed exes before turning to fold his arms and '''[[LargeHam look]]''' at the camera.
