"Have you noticed, Darling? Since we've had Lady, we see less and less of those disturbing headlines." "Yes, I just don't know how we got along without her."

  • "But remember...just for tonight." [cut to Lady fully-grown still sleeping in her owners' bed]
  • "Can't you explain to Lady about Sundays?!" (after being woken up at 6am!)
  • Lady digging in the garden and accidentally uprooting a tulip. She guiltily props it upright again. Upside-down. And then trots off with a self-satisfied "They'll never know!" smile.
  • Lady fetches the paper and tears it bringing it through the doggy door. Cut to Jim Dear reading a newspaper with a massive hole in it, even reaching right through to get his coffee. His remark (under the image) finishes it.
  • When we first meet Trusty, he sleep-tracks a little black-and-white caterpillar, while Jock explains to Lady that the old bloodhound's sense of smell has effectively disappeared. Then, when Trusty fully wakes up, he asks where his quarry went. While he gives a physical description, the caterpillar, thinking that Trusty's talking about it, looks down at itself, perks up at the thought of being tall, and stretches itself upward:
    [B]ig fella. Stood about 6' 2''... Uh, no, three. Wore a striped suit, no collar.
    • Funnier still, Jock and Lady notice the caterpillar, leading the former to give the latter a look that says, "Do you want to tell Trusty, or should I?"
  • Even though it most likely hints at his own backstory, Tramp's falsetto and the way he's animated when he re-enacts a woman yelling for the dog to be quiet can be pretty narmy.

  • Darling doesn't have much imagination when it comes to a girls' name: Betty Ann, Betty Lou, Betty Ann Lou, Betty Lou Ann... Mary, Mary Lou...
  • Poor Jim Dear having to deal with Darling's pregnancy cravings. Keep in mind that watermelon is a summer fruit. Darling wants it in January... At 3 AM... During a blizzard...
    Jim Dear: Darling are you sure you want...watermelon?
    Darling: Mmm hmm! Oh, and some chop suey, too!
    Jim Dear: Chop su-?!... Oh, al-alright, Darling...
  • At the baby shower:
    • The male guests have all gathered with Jim in one room while the women spend time with Darling in another. This isn't what's funny. What's funny is the narmy joke told by one male guest:
      "Cheer up, Jim! Old Doc Jones has never lost a father yet!"
    • Another funny part of the shower is that in one room all of the women are gathered, each of them praising Darling and saying how beautiful she looks during her pregnancy. In the other room all of the men are around Jim Dear laughing at him and saying he looks exhausted and awful.

  • The night the baby is born, Jim Dear is racing up and down the stairs, cheering in his new-dad euphoria. He runs into the doctor, clearly exhausted after being dragged out of bed in the wee hours of the morning and going through the delivery. Jim Dear excitedly shouts "It's a boy! Doctor, it's a boy!" for what is likely the hundredth time. The doctor's response is a wearily deadpan, "Yes... I know."
    Jim Dear: (on the phone after the birth) Yes, Aunt Sarah, it's a boy! Uh huh, a boy! What's that?... Eyes?... Oh, what color are they?... Oh gosh, I forgot to look! (drops the phone and runs upstairs)
  • Tramp setting up a Let's You and Him Fight between an Irish Cop and a mild-mannered professor to provide a distraction so they can sneak into the zoo. He escalates the argument with a well-timed chomp to the policeman's posterior.
    Policeman: AAARRRGGGHHH! Pull a knife on me, will ye?
  • From the beaver scene:
    • Tramp runs into a communication problem with the beaver:
      Tramp: What you need is a log puller... (The beaver is chewing on the log too loudly to be able to hear him) I said "a LOG PULLER"! [voice rumbles]
      Beaver: I ain't deef, ssssonny. No need to—Did you ssssay 'Log Puller'?"
    • Then after the beaver frees Lady from the muzzle, err—"Log puller" and attaches it to the trunk. It works a bit too well, and the beaver is flung through the air, still attached to the log, and eventually lands in the water. The log floats over and completes the dam.
      Beaver: S-SS-Say, it works-ss s-ss-swell!
  • Tony and Joe preparing Tramp and Lady's romantic dinner. It's about as stereotypical Italian as you can get and it's hilarious.
    Tony: Joe! Butch here says-a he wants-a two spaghetti especiale! Heavy on the meats-a-ball!
    Joe: Tony! Dog's-a don't-a talk!
    Tony: [menacingly] HE'S-A TALKIN' TO ME!
    Joe: Okay, he's-a talkin' to you! You're the boss! [to himself] Mama mia...
  • After Boris talked about Tramp's Achilles' Heel being his weakness for females, Lady later tells Tramp, "As far as I'm concerned, you needn't worry about your old heel." Tramp honestly has no idea what that means.
    Lady: And I don't care if the Cossacks do pick you up!
