"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]
    • Puppy Lady's look of absolute delight whenever she sees that her crying is yielding results.
  • "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)
  • During "The Siamese Cat Song", Si and Am pull a table runner beneath a fish bowl. Lady grabs the other end and pulls it back to keep the cats from eating the fish. They let the runner go and when you hear the crash, they give a look as if to say "Oopsie!"
  • Tramp setting up a Let's You and Him Fight between an Irish Cop and a mild-mannered professor to provide a distraction so he and Lady 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?
  • After Tramp saves Lady from getting her head bitten off by an alligator, a hyena laughs at both of them.
    Tramp: Ha! If anybody ever needed a muzzle, it's him!
  • 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 telling Tramp he should "settle down with this-a one," prompting Lady to ask what he means by "this-a one."
      Tramp: This-a one, this, OH! Tony, you know, he's notta speak-a English pretty good. (Gulps nervously. It's at this point that Tony brings out their table, prompting Tramp to gave a massive, extremely visible sigh of relief.)
    • Before seeing Lady, Tony orders Joe to bring some bones to Tramp.
      Joe: Here's your bones, a-Tony!
      Tony: Okay! Bones... (smacks plate out of Joe's hands) Bones?! What's-a matter for you, Joe? I break-a your face-a!
    • Tony ordering on behalf of Tramp and Lady.
      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...
  • The high-pitched squeal Tramp made as he jumped over the puddle during his and Lady's escape from the chicken farm.
  • 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!
    • In that same scene, when she's throwing the names of his former girls in his face, she gets tangled up in the Chihuahua's sister:
      Lady: And Rosita Cochita Wo-wo-whatever her name is!
  • After trying all film to talk about his grandfather, Trusty finally gets his chance to tell the pups what it is Old Reliable used to say... and then he realizes he completely forgot what it was he used to say.
