Funny / Days of Our Lives

Go To

Days of Our Lives, having been on the air for as long as it has, had featured many funny moments. This list will be intended to go in chronological order as best as possible.

  • During the Dimera/Brady history storyline, Dimera henchman Doctor Rolph returned even though in his last appearance he was crushed by a crate. Bart asked him "Didn't you die?". Rolph shrugs it off with "It didn't stick."
  • During one of many Brady vs Dimera confrontations, Andre managed to fall from a building. Bo Brady went back to the pub to tell his allies "We've got a problem, Andre fell off the roof."
  • When Sami, Gabi and Kate had thought they had killed Nick Fallon, EJ provided a lot of humor as he made Sami take him through the steps of everything they did, with him practically face palming at all the mistakes.
    • Another bit of humor from this storyline came from the guy who saved Nick from the river, Percy, a bird watcher. He always introduced himself with a chipper "Greetings!". Sami, Kate and Gabi took to calling him "Mr. Greetings" much to EJ's annoyance and insisting they all stop that. Eventually EJ does it himself and has a "great now I'm doing it" moment.
  • Once, Will and Sonny had Johnny and Allie over while playing a board game. Johnny accused Allie of cheating and after a joke, Johnny says "you know who really cheats?" The Creepy Child of the show at the time, Ciara. Will and Sonny both looked at one another and agreed "I buy that."
  • Regular recurring character Anne Milbauer once said "I googled 'I hate Jennifer Horton' and got over a thousand results."
  • When Andre returned from the dead once again he revealed himself to the town at the Brady Pub, at first everyone looks silent until Marlena slowly spoke up, "....Tony?". Unfortunately for them, the answer came was "Andre, Tony's still dead."

  • Clyde Weston and Orpheus, being a bizarre team up, provided some. Namely, Clyde going on a southern-style rant about everything going on while Orpheus ignores him the whole time working on a crossword puzzle.
  • Orpheus, as a villain who has been Back from the Dead more than once, had been "killed" again. As a paramedic pronounced him dead, Steve told him to "Check him again!"
  • During the Greek storyline, Nicole thought she had finally escaped Xander's clutches and gone to a police officer for help in rescuing Eric. So with Nicole by his side, the officer barges right in and asks Xander if he's been doing all these terrible things to the lady. Xander calmly tells him "Yes, I most certainly am." Of course, this cop was one of many on Xander's payroll.
  • Lucas Horton's return to alcohol in 2017 has provided plenty of funny. Among such examples where he was having problems pronouncing the word "cuckold" as "cuckooed". He also swore he was fine and did a pure face plant after getting up from the bar.
  • Hattie Addams and Bonnie Lockhart had been impersonating Marlena and Adrienne, respectively. When Anjelica Deveraux died in a struggle between her and Bonnie, Bonnie told Hattie to give her those "chest compression" things. Hattie tells her "that's CPR and I'm not a doctor, I just play one in Salem." Mind you, Hattie is being played by Deidre Hall, the same actress who plays Dr. Marlena Evans, one of the show's most famous doctors.
    • Continuing on where this lead, Hattie framed Lucas Horton by leaving her dead body in bed with him. While trying to figure things out with Chloe Lane, she mused "So Anjelica tried to stick it to Adrienne by having you stick it to her." Lucas responded "I think she got the short end of the stick."
  • Brady walked in on the sham wedding between Victor and Bonnie (pretending to be Adrienne) in which Victor summed up the whole insane storyline with "Me and Maggie got a quick divorce so that the maid can marry me and Adrienne." Brady does a double take and admits he hasn't had a drink yet today, before Victor orders him to shut up and stay there as the witness.
  • Ben, the reformed serial killer, had rescued Ciara following her motorcycle accident and began taking care of her in a remote cabin. At one point he offered to help give her foot on her injured leg a sponge bath. While at first reluctant Ciara ended up enjoying it but given her ticklish feet managed to kick Ben right in the face by accident. When Ben came to he decided he best stop before he lost some teeth.
  • Before Marlena and John's 2018 re-marriage, she had a dream that allowed them to poke fun at several years worth of Continuity Snarls and retcons. Namely with Roman walking in wearing bandages claiming that he was the real John Black all along, and Marlena herself actually being Hattie Addams in disguise.
  • All the interaction scenes between Victor and Susan Banks in 2018 were humorous. Even with Susan at one point believing Victor is just a big ole pussycat. After she left the room, Maggie made a cat gesture to a very annoyed looking Victor.
  • In the middle of a rather serious (if not outlandish) storyline there was certain humor in Gabi hitting herself over the head with a cookie tray.
  • Nearly the entirety of the Halloween 2018 episode featured Hattie having a nightmare that poked fun at the show's past weirder storyline where Marlena was possessed. Satan decided to come back for Marlena when Hattie was playing Marlena. Memorable moments included a baby with Andre Dimera's face, Doug and Julie randomly spouting accents for a Rosemary's Baby parody and Hattie desperately trying to prove to Satan she's not the real Marlena.
