  • Several with Stephen King's Jordy Verrill:
    • Jordy: Meteor shit! [wipes hand on his overalls]
    • During his fantasy sequence about seeking medical attention for his fingers, the doctor flips open a steam-sterilizer and pulls out a cleaver:
      Doctor: This is going to be extremely painful, Mr. Verrill!
    • During his "bummer" fantasy sequence about the broken meteor, the scene is framed with an overlay of a raincloud and set in the "Department of Meteors" at the university. At the end of the sequence, Jordy, utterly shamed, uses his hat to cover the worthless meteor.

    • The fact that his idea of getting rich off the meteor is being paid 200 dollars.
    • When he's about to bathe and strips down to see how much of the plant is on him, he screams in terror when it's implied that the plant is growing over his crotch.
      Jordy: Oh no, not there!
  • Richard Grantham accidentally (on purpose) saying "hick" and not "husband" to describe Hank.
  • Henry's Indulgent Fantasy Segue where he fantasizes about shooting his bitchy wife right between the eyes, and everyone else applauds his aim.
    Wilma: Oh, God, Henry, what's wrong now?
    Henry: Not a thing, Wilma! [Wilma slumps over; Henry blows the barrel] Everything's just fine!
    [onlookers turn to stare at Henry; they begin applauding]
    Henry: Hell of a shot!
  • Henry, as Billie is devoured by the yeti thing from the crate, simply tells her, "Tell him to call you 'Billie'!"

  • The garbage men who find the discarded comic at the end are rather amusing, particularly the note of disappointment in their voices that they can't send away for the "authentic voodoo doll".
  • Upson Pratt's conversation with Mrs. "Cat-sun-jammer", while showing that he's unbelievably heartless, is Black Comedy at its finest.
    Pratt: Would you mind telling me who gave you my private number? I'd like to fire him.
    Mrs. Castonmayer: [in tears] It was in my husband's address book, you son of a bitch!
    Pratt: ...Well, I can't fire him, now, can I?
  • How chuffed Nathan is to finally get his "cake". There is a very obvious smug tone when he says "I got my cake!"
