Funny / LEGO City Undercover

Go To

  • The into where Chase arrives back at the city through a ship. Captain Bluffbeard's negligence to the people on and around the ship is just hilarious: a couple imitating Titanic fall overboard ("My love will go on!), his dancing ship crew also fall overboard (said crew was dancing to the radio), and he "smoothly" parks his ship at the docks at the expense of shipwrecking boats and drowning several people behind.
    • Don't forget scraping the side of the boat against the bridge's leg.
    Cpt. Bluffbeard: "That'll buff right out!"
  • (jumping for the freefall in Bluebell Mines) I WASN'T READY!!!!
    • After hitting Chase's head against the wooden planks 3 times. I think I got a concussion!. What's my name again?!
    • And immediately after the freefall, a worker asks Chase, "You do realize there's an elevator, right?"
    Chase: "No..."
    • As Chase mounts the diving board for the big jump, if the player hesitates to initiate the jump Chase says, "Okay, three... two... one... Go!" And if you hesitate further, "And go..." And still again: "...aaaaaannnnnd go." Then he starts trying to psyche himself up for the jump: "C'mon, you can do this... It's really not that deep... Look, I can see the bottom. No, that's just murky darkness hiding a horrible and unpleasant death..." etc.
  • The Police Station:
    Bea Heckerson: "I hope the Chief notices that I changed my hair today. It'll make being bald all of past week worthwhile!"
    Officer: "... so until we find the camera we have to take mug-shots by photocopying people's faces? Well, okay..."
    Officer: "... let's see - cause of accident, "Culprit was attempting to see how long they could drive with their eyes closed. Immediately reversed through their house's front window and come to rest in their kitchen."
    • In the basement of the police station, you can find a man pumping iron who says "I've been doing this for months, and my arm is still the same size. What gives?"
  • When Chase and Frank are sent to Farmer Hayes to help find his pigs, they travel there on horseback. Unfortunately, Frank managed to miss an important detail when mounting his steed. Hilarity Ensues.
    Frank: Cha-ase? My horse is stuck in reverse! And it doesn't have a head! And it has a really weird-looking butt!
    Chase: You're sat facing backwards, Frank!
    Frank: Oh...! That'd explain why he didn't like it when I fed him that apple.
  • The Court Guard getting pooped on by a bird.
  • The briefing room scene, which contains a smattering of references to cop shows:
  • When you unlock the Audio Scanner, you can listen in on other conversations you're not supposed too. Examples include:
    • An artist yelling at his subject of his portrait... his dog.
    • A guy ordering pizza from his mom.
    • A woman panicking about losing something before her husband tells her to calm down and retrace her steps. She remembers leaving them in her car truck, then on a hatstand, and it's only when she remebers leaving them in the cupboard and checks on it are we revealed what she was trying to find: Her son and daughter.
    • A waiter at a tea house cheerfully listing off a few of the teas they serve. When his customer orders a black coffee, he suddenly screams at her, "GET OUT!"
    • For that matter, the gang conversations that you're "supposed" to listen to can also be funny. The one at Albatross Island comes to mind, where a prisoner convinces another one to start a riot all beacuse of badly prepared breakfast. Others include a group of paranoid men who think there are aliens in a sawmill, and a gang who want to damage the Garden of Peace and Tranquility in Pagoda because the leader hates trees.

  • The whole Shawshank Redemption level.
    Blue: (inner monologue) I have no idea what those two Italian ladies were saying that day. I also don't know why those guys were dancing, and how one got a saucepan on his head. There is still much I don't know.
  • After Blue smuggles a car in a giant cake for Heywood, a fellow prisoner:
    Blue: What's the matter, Heywood? Don't you like your new car?
    Heywood: Car?! (groans and burps out a tire) Ugh... (makes a car alarm chirp)
  • Studsky and Clutch. That is all.
    Studsky: (regarding Chase's purple cowboy disguise) They belong to our friend Huggy. He has no sense of personal space.
    • When begin discussing as to how Chan is going to get information out of Natalia.
      Studsky: Like giving her [Natalia] ice cream?
      Chase: What? He's not going to bribe her, Studski.
      Studsky: No, I mean I get really bad ice cream headaches. I'd tell you anything if you threaten me with it. Especially mint-chocolate. Blech!
      Clutch: Right...or they could make her drink lots of soda pop and she'd get trapped wind, because ladies can't burp in public.
      Studsky: Oh, my mom does that all the time.
      Clutch: Your mom ain't no lady.
      Studsky: Oh! I thought of another one! They could—
      Chase: All right! That really isn't helping!
  • The narrations for the exhibits in the Lego City Museum.
    "This oil derrick is over a hundred years old. Oil derricks are named after their inventor: John Oil."
    "This pirate ship was painstakingly reconstructed from 843 pieces dredged up from the bottom of the ocean. There were quite a lot of bits... left over, so it probably wasn't a pirate ship...before."
  • The "Nitrous for All" Red Brick works on every land vehicle with an engine, and a few that don't. Even Segways, bicycles and wheelchairs. You can see where this is going.
  • Chase's Plumb-fu Training Montage.
  • When Chase is ziplining, he uses something appropriate to his costume to support himself. In his police uniform he uses a set of handcuffs, as a robber he use the crowbar, etc. But what does he use in his civilian getup? A banana.
  • The Goodfellas Shout-Out has several.
  • "I Know Kung-Fu... and... plumbing?"
  • After Frank Honey crashes the M.O.V. Police truck he was delivering:
    Mayor Gleeson: Dunby...!
    Chief Dunby: Honey...!
    Frank: Waffles...! What are we doing...?
  • Farmer Hayes' smelly smelly spare overalls. Shortly after donning said overalls...
    Chase: Say, these don't smell so bad... [Beat] No, wait, there. It just hit me.
    • Even better: After acquiring the farmer disguise, when roaming around the city you can occasionally hear passersby commenting "Ew, what's that smell?" Even if you're not currently wearing that disguise! Apparently the overalls smell so bad that not even Hammerspace can contain or suppress the stench!

How well does it match the trope?
