Funny moments in Batman Beyond.
WARNING: Spoilers are unmarked.
1x01/02 - Rebirth, Parts 1 & 2
- This exchange after Bruce comes upon Terry being cornered by the Jokerz:J-Man: Who do you think you're talking to, old man? We're the Jokerz!

- Terry's attempt to leave Wayne Manor is thwarted by Ace, who barks at him the moment he opens the front door.
- The end of the second part has Bruce come round to Terry's house, ostensibly to invite him to be his assistant. While this, in and of itself, is funny, watching Bruce pretending to be a nice and normal kindly old man is absolutely hilarious. He even calls Terry "Terrence."

1x04 - Meltdown
- Batman calling Powers to troll him after he puts a stop to an illegal shipment by his mooks.
- "Meltdown" should not be funny; in fact, it's one of the most tragic, heart-wrenching episodes in the Batman mythos. However, there's a moment of comedy at the end in between two moments of poignant remorse for maximum Mood Whiplash, where the newly-shown Walking Wasteland Blight is recovered by his henchmen after having been blasted into a frozen river.Henchman 1: Mister Powers! Thank heavens.
Henchman 2: We used an infrared scan to locate you.
Henchman 1: Not that you would've been hard to spot without it.
Henchman 2: [offering blankets to the radioactive, super-heated Blight] We also brought these. Just in case you were cold.
Blight: [glowers at them for a long moment] ...You are idiots.

- Terry and Bruce's conversation at the end.Terry: Tell me something—why were you so sure those voices weren't coming from you?Bruce: Well, first, I know I'm not psychotic.Terry: I hope your other reason is more convincing.Bruce: The voice kept calling me "Bruce." In my mind, that's not what I call myself.Terry: What do you call yourself?[Bruce just looks at him for a moment]Terry: Oh, yeah. I suppose you would. [Batman voice] But that's my name now.Bruce: Hmm. Tell that to my subconscious. [walks off]

- When Bruce says Terry is going to meet Bane:Terry: Sure. [checks watch] Just as long as I'm home by nine.[Bruce gives him a look]Terry: I told you I was in trouble!
- When Bruce cautions Terry about Bane:Terry: C'mon, he must be a zillion years old! What trouble could an old geezer—[Bruce makes a sour look on the Batmobile's computer screen]Terry: Never mind.

- While Spellbinder making Jared's mother believe she is trapped in a world of giant insects is not funny, there's the bit at the end where Batman catches her. Since she sees him as an insect, she screams and hits him, trying to get away, but when the hallucination ends and her vision goes back to normal, she screams and hits Batman again.
- Bruce investigates a security alert upstairs to find Terry, hypnotized by Spellbinder to believe he's a contestant on a shopping game show, stuffing expensive items into a sack with an idiotic grin on his face.

Aaron: You could hear me?
Inque: Yes, Aaron, I could hear you. And see you, too.
- After Inque escapes capture, Terry sets to work sealing up the Batmobile's entrance to the Batcave, believing Inque knows the way there. Bruce doesn't believe she's coming, pointing out that it was dark that night and "There's the way you drive."
- After defeating Inque, Bruce actually cracks a joke. As Inque is washed down the drain by rainwater, he remarks in perfect classic Batman deadpan, "Poor deluded [diluted] fool." Terry visibly double-takes just before the camera fades to the next scene.
1x11 - A Touch of Curare
- Terry panicking after Barbara appears in the Batcave, contrasting with Bruce's totally unruffled demeanor.

1x12 - Ascension
- Terry, as Batman, saves Bruce from Blight at a Wayne-Powers board meeting. Bruce thanks Terry, referring to him as "Batman," since they're in public. However, his tone has just the right level of hesitation and awkwardness to tell how weirded out he is from not being Batman anymore.

- Terry giving Paxton a Death Glare for a long moment after responding to his summons using a Bat Signal.Batman: Next time, use email.

- The exchange between Terry and Bruce when Vance's AI spreads its code throughout the city, and Terry touches Bruce's computer console to open the entrance repeatedly.Bruce: The door's not working.

- When the culprit is revealed and the school is shut down until he's caught, by a court order delivered by Barbara Gordon, the students start cheering and Terry gets this gem.Terry: You're a hero to my people, Commissioner.
2x12 - Babel
- If "Babel" shows us anything, it's that Shriek makes a very good Straight Man. In the first act, he berates his henchman Ollie for assuming his plan to cause chaos across Gotham by manipulating the sound waves across the city is for credits, after he was rendered deaf. After he turns on TV to watch the news, he reveals his real aim is revenge against Batman. Ollie then earnestly asks what Batman did to him. One wishes you could see his face under mask, but if it was obvious he was annoyed at the question, that he gave him "the fork" to shut him up.

- When Terry investigates the boys' locker room to see if there's any evidence of Nelson's "accident" being foul play and Max walks in to do the same thing. The look on Terry's face is priceless.
- To top things off, after they find a hand print, boys start walking in and Max hides in a locker, begging Terry to sneak her out. He instead leaves her there and says he'll tell the teacher she's gonna be late, which infuriates her. Terry's such a troll.
- This hilarious exchange, which might be borderline Getting Crap Past the Radar:Blade: Where are you two going? Private party?
Howard: [dragging Cynthia into a room by the arm] Yeah! [to himself] ...I'm going to jail!
- An obviously drunk dude at the end of the episode watching Cynthia and Batman duke it out: "This is totally awesome! Cynthia's a robot and Batman's kickin' her butt!"
- How does Howard try to calm down Cynthia? He says "We can still be friends..."Cynthia: [makes a You Have Got to Be Kidding Me! face] Friends? FRIENDS?!
Howard: [to Batman] Wrong thing to say?
Batman: Is it ever the right thing?!
- That scene is made so much better by the fact that Howard's doing okay until he says that line, causing Batman to immediately Facepalm.
- The ending. Cynthia explodes, blowing up Howard's house. Howard asks how worse things can get. Cue his parents pulling up.
- His dad then proceeds to chew him out something fierce while Terry, Max, and Dana make a quiet exit, and he continues as the scene fades out.
2x14 - Eyewitness
- Barbara compliments Bruce on the tea he serves and he replies, "I learned from the best. Now if only I could figure out how [Alfred] made those little tea-cakes."
- After Terry's apparent murder of Mad Stan is revealed to be an illusion by Spellbinder, we find that the real Mad Stan is in one of the virtual reality simulators from "Hooked Up", where he dreams of blowing up city hall with no one there to stop him. The manic look on his face when it's revealed to only be a simulation is what sells it.Mad Stan: No more graft! No more payoffs! NO MORE JURY DUTY! [continues laughing as we fade to the real world]
Cop: Wonder what he's so happy about...

- Terry jumping to the conclusion that Ian Peek is the culprit, but Bruce isn't convinced.Terry: So what do we do, call Commissioner Gordon and have him arrested?Bruce: Arrested? For what?Terry: Well, he... he... trespassing.Bruce: Peek isn't really a criminal, unless being a reporter counts.Terry: Yeah, but, um... [becomes lost for words]
- When the Jerkass investigative reporter Ian Peek finds out Terry and Bruce's secret identities and plans to reveal them on his show, Terry decides that it would be better for his family to hear the truth from him first rather than see it on TV:Terry: Mom, Matt, there's something I need to tell you.
Mary: After the show, dear.
Terry: No! It can't wait! I-I'm...Batman.
[His mother and Matt both burst into laughter]
Terry: [annoyed] Seriously, I am!
Mary: Terry, please.
2x19 - The Eggbaby
- While robbing a house, Carl tries to raid the fridge, then Ma drags him away by the ear.
- This exchange:Slim: This isn't my first time busting a vault.

Bruce: Good question. But I have a feeling she's not making slippers.
Terry: Slippers? From rubies?
Bruce: Before your time.
- Terry mentions to Bruce in passing that he's failing Family Studies. After cutting the connection, Bruce just looks at Ace and asks him "How does somebody fail Family Studies?" Stop and think about that. Bruce Wayne, the man who hasn't had a family since he was eight, just asked how someone could fail Family Studies.
- Terry is forced to babysit an electronic egg-baby for school. Over their radio, all Bruce hears is a baby crying, which leads to this exchange:Bruce: What's going on there? Is that a baby?
Bruce: You brought a baby with you!?
Terry: It's not what you think, really.
Bruce: Terry...is there something you need to tell me?
- Ma is full of Hypocritical Humor in that episode, 1/2 Mood Whiplash, the other half pure hilarity. Such as Ma, in full Mama Bear mode after witnessing her biggest son, Carl, being utterly thrashed by Terry, says "Nobody hurts my boys," then proceeds to break his back as she walks over him...in high heels.Ma: Let's get out of here before pointy-ears shows up again.
Batman: Too late.

[Bruce gives him a flat look that plainly says "Don't even think about it"]
Terry: ...never mind.
- Terry assures Bruce he got the Eggbaby to sleep...only for the Eggbaby to start laughing in joy as a result of Ace licking it. Terry gives Bruce an apologetic look, and Bruce just turns toward the camera with an annoyed look on his face.
- Terry ranting at Bruce while frantically searching for the Eggbaby after its unknowingly taken by Ma Mayhem and her sons:Terry: I'll have to take Family Studies...AGAIN! Have you ever taken Family Studies?!
- Followed by this:Terry: I can set the Batmobile to scan for [the egg], can't I?
Bruce: Uh-huh. Unless they've already made an omelet out of him.
Terry: Oh, hey!
- Followed by this:
- Terry, in full Batman costume, sticking out his tongue at Carl after rescuing his eggbaby.
- Turns out Terry gets the best grade to boot, as the only "parent" in the class who provided entertainment and "intellectual stimulation" for his eggbaby in addition to meeting its basic needs. Seems babies like badass dads.

- Bruce and Max grudgingly work together to find a missing Terry. In the subway, Bruce encourages Max to go ahead into the tunnel while he distracts a group of construction workers, employing Obfuscating Stupidity. THEN Bruce sets the workers on Max, allowing himself to venture on alone.

Bruce: Mach 3.
Terry: Is that faster than a speeding bullet?
3x09 - Betrayal
- The moment when Max and Bruce are trying to find Terry, and Max has his Batsuit in his backpack. There follows a short phone conversation and then by a long shot of Max looking at the costume and perfectly timed just when you begin to hope you're going to see Max-As-Batgirl, the phone rings again:Bruce: Don't even think about putting that on.
- To make it better, after Bruce asks Max if she has the Batsuit and she confirms it, he tells her he'll be right over to pick it up and we see him standing up from the Batcomputer and starting to head off. When he calls Max again to warn her against suiting up, he's clearly sitting down again, meaning the thought of Max donning the Batsuit occurred to him when he was probably a few steps toward the entrance to the Batcave. Makes a pretty funny visual.
3x10/11 - The Curse of the Kobra, Parts 1 & 2

3x13 - Unmasked
- At the end, a bit of serious Black Comedy occurs when it looks like Kobra has won and all of Kobra knows Terry's face. The Kobra branch leader leaps to his own death via cobra pit, laughing triumphantly and content that he has done well and that Batman is doomed, only for Terry to realize that they hadn't gotten his face at all. The face the kid pictured was that of the kid's favorite action figure. The Kobra leader just sent an absolute joke of an image to his comrades, who are in for one hell of a hilarious rude awakening when they realize the mistake, and the leader will be remembered (if he's remembered at all) as a laughingstock.
- While not technically a Batman Beyond episode, Terry's outright stolid attitude in "Future Shock" compared to his usual portrayal was downright hilarious at times.Static: Batman's not going to be happy about how you're treating his guests.
Terry: First off, we don't have guests here. Second off, I'm Batman.
Static: Yeah, and I'm Beyoncé.
- DC Fandome 2020:
- Terry and Bruce providing RiffTrax-esque commentary on a clip of Batman (1966). They both admit that the '66 Batmobile is pretty cool.
- Terry being completely baffled that past Bruce, Bruce from Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and Bruce from Lego DC Comics Super Heroes are covering the wrong parts of their faces during the COVID-19 Pandemic and he's the only one doing it right, and he would know, because he's from the futuuuure... only to lose transmission midsentence. The other Batmen quip that hopefully, they caused his future to be erased.
