  • Buffy mocking the killer (similar to Tatum in Scream), EVEN getting stabbed in the gut, breaking her own leg, and getting decapitated!

  • The scene where Gail meets Ghostface. Starts as a parody of TMZ, before abruptly switching into one of The Blair Witch Project, complete with found footage POV, shaky camerawork, and snot.

  • When one the heroes winds up dead, Buffy insists she saw it occur. Her friends disbelieve her... all while in the background the killer is very noisily and blatantly trying to shove the body into a trash can.
  • The after-credits tape that was recorded by Shorty saying that he might be dead by now. He lists a bunch of tips that sound like survival tips against the killer, but then it turns out him and his friends were just going to steal a bunch of snacks from a gas station and make a run for it.
    Shorty: Yo, if y'all are watching this tape right now, that means I didn't make it. If I'm a prisoner or worse, dead. Anyhow, I'm gonna tell you the rules to survive this situation. Rule number 1: you gotta be quick. Rule number 2: DON'T fall down. And rule number 3: whatever you do, NEVER LOOK BACK! Y'all wish me luck... SNATCH AND RUN, Y'ALL! (Shorty and his friends proceed to rob a gas station of its snacks)

  • The hip hop Christmas album commercial, with classics such as "Santa Claus Is Cumming on Mom", "I'm Dreaming of a White Woman", and who could forget "Frosty the Dopeman"?
  • The party at the beginning of the film. Gathered around a piano, they finish singing "Hello, Dolly!" and follow it up with Mystikal's "Shake Ya Ass". The smirk on Andy Richter's face when he sings "I thought I told y'all niggas before/Y'all niggas can't fuck with me" is priceless.

  • The entirety of the skeleton scene.

    Sue: AAAHHHH!!
    George: AAAHHHH!!
    Sue: AAAHHHH!!
    George: AAAHHHH!!
  • George's white hoodie resembles a Ku Klux Klan hood without him realizing it; hilarity ensures when he puts it on in triumph after a rap battle in front of a predominately black audience. He doesn't make matters any better when he does a gesture resembling the Nazi salute.
    Mahalik: George, the hood! Lose the hood!
    George: I know, we're in the hood now!

  • Fighting back against the aliens.
    I've got it! Without their heads, they're powerless!

    George: (groans) I had to ask...
  • Child abuse is normally not very funny, but the scene where Cindy accidentally backs up into Cody and sends him flying down the street was one of the most random and funny moments in the whole movie.

  • "These men died for their country. Send flowers to their bitches and ho's."
  • "Cindy, the news is on! Another little white girl done fell down a well! Fifty black people got they ass beat by police today, but the whole world gotta stop for one little whitey down the hole!"

    George: "Family... that's the thing I've been running away from."

    • Even funnier since the Secret Service man is played by Ja Rule.
  • George recreating the vomit scene in 8 mile, only in a surprising twist, he throws up on a toilet with someone using it. He apologizes and the guy screams "Motherf--" before George closes the stall door. Later on a depressed George is accompanying his friends while they throw paint at people they drive pass. The same guy from the bathroom earlier gets hit with a paintroller full of yellow paint shouting the same word again before being cut off.
  • The girl from the video is on the phone telling Cindy "seven days," meaning that she's going to come to kill her in seven days. Cindy says "I'm gonna die next Monday" and the girl is all "Wait... that's seven business days." She then asks if she counts holidays and she says it depends on which one and when Cindy specifies Martin Luther King Day, she says "no." Cindy whines that everyone at work is taking it off and the killer retorts that if she's not happy with seven days, she could just come over and kill her right now.
  • Cindy arrives home to find George knocked out at the table. "Yahtzee!" (bangs head on shelf)

    Tabitha: Yes, he did. Come on, Cindy, I do this for a living.
    Cindy: (picking up after Tabitha calls again) Hello?
    Tabitha: Hello, I'm calling from Reader's Digest with a fantastic offer for Cody.

    • The janitor eventually manages to get a hold of the teleprompter, fending off Cindy and the boss...
    I been cleanin' after this dumb-ass cracker Giggins for ten years, but I been hittin' it with his woman for twelve. Know what I'm sayin', nigga? She likes her some chocolate. Sharpton for President y'all. I'm outie.
  • Tabitha sees Cindy's love for Cody and it moves her... except not.

    Annie: Oh, Jesus.
    Tom: That's right, honey. Go into the light.
    Annie: Look! Just tell George, swing away.
    Tom: Right. Swing away.
    Annie: Oh, sure. That you understand.

  • The aliens using a reflective knife to look under Cindy's skirt and getting turned on.
  • The opening and Kate and Becca discussing how energy waves zipping through the air are supposedly making people dumber...
    Kate: The cow says blank? Three letters?
    Becca: Dude!
    Kate: (trying to fill this in) Dude! I don't know, magnetic waves, brain cells. I don't understand the connection between all that stuff.

Scary Movie 4

  • The Tom Cruise on Oprah spoof with Tom Ryan and Oprah. Easily one of the best parts of the whole film. Shame that it's at the very end.
  • Brenda finds Shaquille O'Neill's bones.
    "Oh my God, [the aliens] killed the dinosaurs!
    • The entire sequence of Adam Westing with Dr. Phil and Shaq was hilarious.
    Dr. Phil: He wants us to cut through our feet.
    Shaquille: You go first.
    Dr. Phil: (beat). BULLSHIT!
    Shaquille: Yeah, you're probably not man enough. Guess your momma was right. (grins)
    Dr. Phil: NEVER! Who's the coward now momma! (starts sawing off his foot)
    Shaquille: (grinning): Candy from a baby.
  • Some homies started smoking some Red Weed. Essentially they're getting high on blood.
  • The president accidentally using the alien ray gun to make his clothes disappear, sauntering around the stage butt-naked while the U.N. members watch in horror, and then accidentally making their clothes disappear too. See here.
  • Another group of homies ended up getting zapped by the rays of the Tripod, leaving nothing but their bling-bling.
  • "Its LOCKED." *kicks door down*
  • As Cindy is about to gouge her eye out to retrieve the key inside her skull to release herself from the Venus Fly Trap, Jigsaw beckons Zoltar to come and see. Zoltar is revealed to be a second Jigsaw.
  • The salesman beats up the creepy Asian boy so he can sell the house to Cindy.
  • The scene parodying the one from War of the Worlds where the people are fighting over the car. This one ends in some confusion over who gets what.
  • The scene where everything stops working because of the EMP. Probably the highlight has to be when a terrorist tries to blow himself up in the middle of a street, only to discover that his explosives are disabled. Cue every single person in the area running over to beat the crap out of him.
  • Tom Ryan's mid-sentence swerve when he gets punched in the face.
    Tom: There's no way they can- (Pow!) -build a robot made of chocolate, but that's just common sense. Oh, waiter?
  • Cindy: I thought you were dead!
    Brenda: (casually, slinging her arm around Cindy) Oh, I thought you were dead too.

  • After a car drives down the road a few times in identical shots, it randomly explodes.

  • Everything with the preist played by Katt Williams.

    Jody: So a demon is about the worst thing you can have?
    Priest: No, ma'am, an STD is the worst thing that you can have.
    • And this
    Who do you know who wants to hurt you? Do you have a jealous colleague at work? A Facebook friend you might have ignored? Maybe you adopted a small African child named Ikatababwe, promising to feed this nigga for 25 cents a day BUT THEN HE NEEDS SOMTHING TO DRINK?!!
  • When last see Ceaser.
    Ceaser: IDIOTS!...(realizes he can talk)I can talk!
