  • At the end of chapter 10, when Jack's tribe attacks Ralph in order to steal Piggy's glasses, Ralph and Eric mistake each other for an enemy and start fighting.
  • The fact that Jack considers himself fit for being chief especially because he can sing C sharp.
  • "Sucks to your ass-mar."
  • Although it's supposed to be a tender moment after Piggy is killed via boulder from Roger, but the moment where a terrible looking Ralph wonders why several littluns run away from him screaming is pretty funny.
  • Piggy's death in the 1990 adaptation falls victim to being laughable due to the sheer amount of Narm it has:
    • Roger dislodges a boulder while Piggy tries to reason with Jack's tribe and Ralph sees it. He has plenty of time to get Piggy out of the way, but instead chooses to scream a Big "NO!".
    • When the boulder hits Piggy, it bounces off his body, showing that’s it’s clearly made from a harmless material.
    • Instead of collapsing, Piggy half sits, half falls to the ground. When we get a close up of him hitting the ground, his forehead is covered in blood.
