Funny / A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

Go To

  • This exchange when Dr. Simms tries to dismiss the group's nightmares.
    Dr. Elizabeth Simms: You won't make any progress until you recognize your dreams for what they are.
    Nancy Thompson: And what are they?
    Dr. Elizabeth Simms: The by-products of guilt. Psychological scars stemming from moral conflicts and overt sexuality.
  • "Welcome to prime time, bitch!"
    • The moment right before that is pretty good, too. Jennifer is watching The Dick Cavett Show, where Dick is interacting with Zsa Zsa Gabor. Which leads to this:
    Dick Cavett: Can I ask you a question?
    Zsa Zsa Gabor: Certainly!
    (Dick changes to Freddy)
    Zsa Zsa Gabor: AAAAAAAHHHHH-! (TV cuts off just as Freddy attacks her)
    • Even funnier if you know that Dick Cavett specifically recommended Gabor for the guest/victim because she's so annoying.
    • Near the beginning of the interview, he asks of her fur coat "How many of what had to die to make that?" It's his half-intrigued, half-appalled delivery that sells it.
    • A meta-example, but the fact that fans list Zsa Zsa Gabor as one of Freddy's victims after her cameo.
  • "I said, where's the fucking bourbon?!"
  • What does Freddy, a mass murderer and dream demon, have nightmares about? Dokken.
    • And when he wakes up from dreaming about them in a Catapult Nightmare, he's clutching a little rag dolly for comfort.
  • "It's the chair for you kid!"

How well does it match the trope?
