     The Books 
  • The reveal of where Ramona disappeared to during the events of Volume 6: She just went to her dad's cabin in the country. Like Scott, she spent most of her time moping around and not doing anything. You can just see everyone become so sarcastically done with their drama at that moment.
    Wallace: Maybe you two WERE meant for each other...
    Stacey (facepalm): ...Just call me for the wedding...
  • Any time Wallace gets drunk and starts yelling.
    • "Wallace Wells: Drunk Homosexual"
  • The entire scene in Honest Ed's. It has to be seen to be believed. Also:
    Todd: The De-Veganization ray! I can dodge this!
    But he couldn't.
  • "Hey Scotty, check out my ring!"
  • Wallace during The Ramona/Envy fight, driving Envy to distraction in the most hilarious ways.
    "Get her Ramona! Get her right in her horsey face!"
    • And later...
      Envy: Stop hiding behind your precious Wallace!
      Ramona: What makes you think I'm hiding behind him?
      [Wallace is actually standing right in front of Ramona, apparently oblivious to this fact]
      Wallace: Oh, sorry. Am I in the way?
  • What happened after Todd punched Ramona a hole in the moon? ''About thirty pages of tidal waves and explosions."
  • Wallace relentlessly taunting Crash and the Boys, which starts with this....
    Crash: I'm Crash, and these are the Boys!
    Wallace: Is that girl a boy, too?
    Crash: Yes!
    (Trasha flips Wallace off.)
    • And ends with this....
    Crash: This is for the guy who keeps shouting at us from the balcony. It's called "We Hate You, Please Die."
    Wallace: Cool, a song for me!
  • "If I peed on myself would you guys say it was the rain?"
  • "Watch out, Scott! I think that might be Gideon!"
  • Joseph's introduction:
    Holly: So how hot is the bass player, Joseph?
    Joseph: He is as hot as the flames of the hell you bitches are going to.
  • Gideon Gordon Graves. Profession: Asshole. Not to mention the running gags of: Gideon Graves, what a dick.
    • Gideon stole the Power of Love! What a dick!
    • After Gideon stabs Ramona: What a dick.
  • Gideon's reactions to A) the fact Ramona left Scott and B) That she named her cat after him ("It was my way of working things out), especially B due to how generally aware he is of everthing. Scott's accusation of Gideon being the cat is funny because with everything that's happened in the series, it's very plausible.
  • This:
    Scott: Well, at least I... something... you... insult...
    Ramona: That's not a good comeback, Scott.
    Stephen: Actually, that's pretty good for Scott.
  • How Scott figures out that the fourth evil ex is female? A chick hatches in his brain! Which he follows up by shouting at Ramona, "YOU HAD A SEXY PHASE!?"
  • Scott calling Young Neil just "Neil" prompts a caption: "The greatest day of his life."
  • Scott and Gideon's memory cam in volume 6.
    (We see chibi versions of characters running through a field)
    Knives: scotty ur so hot & sexxy
    Scott: o hey thanx
    Envy: omigod ur like, such a stud
    Scott: yeah totes
    (Then with Gideon)
    Ramona: babby u lite my fire
    Gideon: r u obsessed or what lol
  • From Volume 4:
    Wallace: Man, you know, I'm really glad everything worked out for you.
    Scott: Me too.
    Wallace: ...Because I signed a lease on a place with Mobile like a week and a half ago and you would have been seriously screwed if you wanted to stay!
    <Both Scott & Wallace begin to laugh uproariosly. Scott suddenly stops.>
    Scott: You bastard.
    Wallace: Yeah, so, give me a call sometime, buddy!
  • Scott Pilgrim: Sketchy-ass 24-year-old.
    Scott: (to Knives) Do you want to have sex? I think we should have sex. CASUAL SEX.
    • And the ensuing make-out session after she rejects him:
    • And the brillant part is, that's exactly correct. Which just makes it funnier.
  • Scott's whole backstory on his last job.
  • Scott Pilgrim: The greatest Prep Chef in Toronto... accidentally botching an order.
    Stephen Stills: ... Whatever. They ordered dinner at 10:55, they're getting a salad.
    • Followed shortly by the this exchange:
      Scott: (To Stephen Stills) So Julie turned you gay?
      Joseph: Seriously, get better [friends].
  • Volume 1 has this little gem:
    Scott: Hey,, that's the online bookstore or whatever, right?
    Wallace: Yep.
    Scott: What's the website for that?
    <Wallace is stunned silent.>
    Scott: Cool! Thanks!
  • Volume 3 has Scott and Todd entering into a stare down while everyone else talks about stuff. Then, for no reason, Scott flips his shit all over Todd.
  • Stephen begging Hollie's gay roommate Joseph to make an album for Sex Bob-omb in volume 4.
    Stephen: Joseph!!! Can you record our album? Sex Bob-omb needs to record an album! We need to take it to the next level! You saw us play in volume 3, right? We aren't all that sucky, right???
    Joseph: ...Okay, I'll do it. But only because I find you attractive.
    Stephen: I can live with that!!!
  • Scott levels up towards the end of the fight with Gideon - "Balls +2".
  • When Stephen Stills asks what's so terrifying about Honest Ed's, Julie answers,
    Julie: ...You know how when a baby is first born it just cries at the sheer horror of being alive?
    • Hell, that entire sequence counts. Just their agonised reactions from just being in there is hilarious, especially with Todd almost killing Scott with a "rifle made from household items".
    • And to top it off:
      And then Honest Ed's imploded.
  • This awesome bit from Volume 3.
    Kim: "Actually, boys, I'm busy. I've got a hot date tonight."
    Scott: "A hot date with a collage you're doing?"
    Stephen Stills: "A hot date with a 2000-piece puzzle depicting the Bluenose II?"
    Kim: "Okay, did it ever occur to you that I might actually have a date?"
    Hilariously awkward pause
    Scott: "Kim, you're a hell of a catch."
    Stephen Stills: "You're a damn fine woman, Kim. Damn fine."
    Kim: "Whatever, let's just play the setlist again, assholes..."
  • Scott, while a drunken Kim professes her love for equally drunk Ramona: "Make out!"
  • And there's this Shout-Out:
    Knives: But look at your face! I totally grazed you!
    Ramona: How appropriate. You fight like a cow.
  • This funny bit from Volume 3:
    Wallace Wells: Ramona, I love you. I'll love you forever. And I have dipping sauce for you! I'll be your dipping sauce bitch!!
  • "Guess who's drunk!"
    Scott: I guess Wallace.
    Wallace: You guess right.
  • "Those are Mr. Silly's shoes."
  • The end of Volume 4 features a parody of a page showing American readers how to read manga, and advises readers to not let "The Man" tell them how to read the comic.
  • Knives pulling a Dynamic Entry against Envy, only to crash into a wall afterwards due to her momentum.
  • Stephen Stills (22 years old) wants a damn buritto, damn it.
  • Scott saves Ramona and Knives from being flattened by Envy by poking the back of Envy's leg, causing Envy to fall over into a ball with a look of absolute bliss on her face.
    Scott: So yeah, like I was saying last night, her weak point's on the back of her knees.
    Ramona: What? How does that work?
    Scott: Um... Well, whenever we were making out, I would-
    Ramona: Okay, stop right there.
  • "WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB!!! We are here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff!!!
    Stephen Stills man in black
    Kim Pine gothic lolita
    Scott Pilgrim guy in a suit purchased at value village
    Ramona & Knives: "What the hell are they wearing?"
  • Gideon's dramatic entrance:
    Gideon: Scott Pilgrim. Can I just be the first to say... "Nice shirt."?
    Scott: (looks at his shirt) What? (back to Gideon) Shut up! You're like the third person to say that! (After Tamara and Stacey)
  • "Last Song Kills Audience".
  • It's a minor background gag, but the way Gideon's exes react to having been cryogenically frozen for years with mild annoyance at best:
    Irene: (talking on cellphone by the bar) I've been in a tube since 2003, mom, okay?
  • The 1-Up. The way the characters react to it is comedy gold.
  • Ramona constantly changes her hair color every few weeks. During a fight, Scott demands to know if her current hair color is her natural one or not. Ramona thinks about it for a moment, and decides it might be. A helpful footnote reminds the readers that this is a black and white comic. The colored version has this: "This was funnier in black and white."
  • This exchange from book 3:
  • When Todd and Lynette kiss in chapter 16, the following text prompt appears in the next panel:
  • In volume 3, we got the glorious juxtaposition of Scott violently chugging down his alcohol while Ramona casually sipped, watching from afar.
  • Out of all the things that the crowd shouted during Ramona and Envy's fight, there's one in particular that's noteworthy...
    "We love you, Envy!"
    "More high kicks!"
    "Get her, Envy!"
    "Pull her hair and stuff!"
    "MAKE OUT!!"
  • In Volume 5, Sex Bob-omb tries playing together from Kim's bedroom. We don't even get to see what happened — all we get is a text prompt that reads "TWO AND A HALF SUCKY-ASS MINUTES LATER".
  • After Ramona bluntly tells Scott that she doesn't really like Sex Bob-omb in Volume 5, Scott texts Wallace asking what to do. Wallace's response?
    "I hate your band too, guy. Hey, we should have dinner sometime. And/or breakfast ;)"

     The Movie 

  • Scott realising he sounds like a Dirty Old Man trying to fulfil some kind of sick fetish as he awkwardly tells Stacy about the 17-year-old Chinese all-girls-school student that he's dating. He sounds as if he already knows and has been trying to ignore it.
  • Wallace talking to Scott about "the L word."
    Scott: "Lesbian?"
    Wallace: The other L word.
    Scott: “Lesbians”?
  • The completely random out-of-reach light switch on the wall when Scott tries to talk to Ramona for the first time. At second glance, a viewer might interpret it as symbolic of how Ramona is totally out of Scott's reach, but the actual reason it's there is much funnier: it just happened to be in the house where the scene was filmed.
  • Scott's miserable failure at an ice-breaker with Ramona.
    Scott: Hey, you know Pac-Man?
    Ramona: (without even looking at him): I know of him.
    Scott: Well, Pac-Man was originally called Puck-Man. They changed it because... Not because Pac-Man looks like a hockey puck. "Paku-Paku" means "flap your mouth," and they were afraid people would change... scratch out the "P" and turn it into an "F," like... (trails off, chuckles awkwardly)
    Ramona: (unamused) Yeah, that's amazing.
    Scott: Um... am I dreaming?
    (Ramona's look of boredom subtly turns into one of Tranquil Fury)
    Scott (sheepishly): I'll leave you alone forever now.
    Ramona (in tone that sounds like "Yeah, you'd better."): Thanks.
  • Scott suggesting that the band hold some secret shows, to which Kim replies, exasperated, "All our shows are secret shows."
  • A hilarious case of foreshadowing: Todd Ingram is seen wearing a Punisher t-shirt during a Clash at Demonhead performance. After Scott outwits Todd into his third vegan violation, the latter is punished by the Vegan Police. Todd's telekinetic power is removed by none other than The Punisher himself, Thomas Jane!
    "It's milk and eggs, bitch!"
  • The Vegan Police.
  • Wallace is able to call Stacey about developments in Scott's love life at any time, even while unconscious!
    Scott: How does he do that?
    • Basically anything Wallace does. In particular: the increasing number of bedmates, the frequent lack of pants, and appearing out of nowhere with Lucas Lee's skateboard.
      Wallace: (kicking the door open) GUESS WHO'S DRUNK~!
      Scott: ...I guess: Wallace.
      Wallace: You guessed right!
      • In fact, the key-toss moment is even funnier in the bloopers, because right after Scott messes up the line, Wallace replies with "Dude, you took a blow to the head for nothing!"
      • One in particular is what he says to Ramona when she is fighting Roxy.
        Wallace: Kick her in the balls!
    • Wallace's reaction in that scene in general is hilarious. Everyone, especially Scott, is confused and freaked out by the two girls engaging in video game-esque fighting. Wallace, meanwhile, is calm as you please and having a drink while watching the whole thing.
  • Apparently, it took Michael Cera 33 shots to get the package Scott orders just to see Ramona into the trash. This is confirmed in the blooper reel, and is pretty damn entertaining to watch. During one of those bad throws, Mary Elizabeth Winstead drops the pen she's holding. Michael Cera comments "Imagine if that went in and you dropped the pen."
  • When everyone starts meeting each other in the Rockit, after Knives kisses Scott and Ramona's right there, everyone starts giving each other dramatic glances, complete with dramatic zooms. Knives gives one to Ramona; Stacey gives one to Scott and Wallace gives one to his newest crush, Jimmy. And the latter cut to the two of them making out. While an arrow-shot heart is drawn around them.
    Stacey: Wallace! Again?!
  • Speaking of The Rockit... "Fun Fact: This Place is a Toilet".
  • After defeating Gideon, Scott is faced down by a dark version of himself, Nega Scott. We cut to Knives and Ramona waiting outside the club as the door opens and Scott and Nega Scott both walk out, laughing like old friends.
  • Scott jumping through a glass window, then reaching back in for his coat, then running off in order to escape from Knives when she showed up at his door and asked Wallace if Scott was home. All of which in full view of the door she's standing at, while Wallace is the picture of calm in telling her he's not around.
    • When the camera shifts to Knives asking "Really?" when she's told that Scott just left, you can see him running away behind her. And she's totally oblivious to this all.
    • If you watch the scene closely, Wallace shifts around in the doorway exactly enough to (conceivably) shield Scott's actions from Knives actually being able to see him in the background. This without looking behind him or even acknowledging that anything unusual is happening.
      • Wallace's utterly deadpan delivery and use of Exact Words to give a Metaphorically True answer:
        Knives: Is Scott here?
        Wallace: Uh, you know what? (Scott crashes through the window behind him) He just left. (Scott reaches back in to get his jacket)
  • Inspiring pump-up music is playing as we see Scott prepare to go after Gideon, with fast smash-cuts to him standing up, fixing his wrist bands, making fists... and the music suddenly stops as he takes a minute to fully tie his shoes.
  • When Ramona asks Scott how he knows Knives, Scott's brain is shown as being unable to choose between answering "I Gotta Pee" and "Who, Her?" He ends up blurting out "I gotta pee on her." The Freeze-Frame Bonus on the wheel of responses: They include: "She's nobody", "She's forty!", "Idiot!", "No speaka English", "When's dinner?", "Uh...", "Tell Pac-Man story", "No, you are", "Pass out", and "It was nothing".
  • K.O.!!! (both times)
  • Knives's literal ":O" face.
  • Knives' fangirlism over Envy, reaching its peak with her happily exclaiming "I've kissed lips that kissed yours!"
  • Knives' fangirlism over Sex Bob-omb in general (mainly because she's their only fan).
  • The shout-out to Launchpad McQuack.
  • "We are Sex Bob-omb and we are here to make money and sell out and stuff," delivered deadpan from Kim at the Chaos Theatre, while rubbing the corner of her nose with her middle finger. Followed up with Kim shouting "WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB, AND WE'RE HERE TO WATCH SCOTT PILGRIM KICK YOUR TEETH IN!" when Scott tries again after using his extra life.
  • The hole in the moon, complete with an 8-bit explosion sound effect.
  • After Gideon's been defeated, he starts ranting about forming the league and acting as if it was some great task, before saying "Do you know how long it took me to get the all the other evil exes' contact information so I can form this stupid league? Like, two hours! TWO. HOURS!" (coughs up a coin)
  • Roxy is generally one of the funniest parts of the movie with lines such as this:
    Roxy: Your BF's about to get F'd in the B!
    • Also, before the fight begins, Scott doesn't understand who she is, until:
      Scott: What is she talking about?
      Roxy: He really doesn't know?
      Scott: Wait... (looks at her eyes and smirk and recognizes them, instantly causing a dial inside his head to go from "No Clue" to "Gets It") YOU AND HER?!
      Ramona: It was just a phase.
      Roxy: Just a phase?!
      Scott: You had a sexy phase?!
      Ramona: It meant nothing, I didn't think it would count!
      Roxy: It meant nothing?!
      Ramona: I was just a little bi-curious.
      Roxy: Well honey... (cracks knuckles) ...I'm a little bi-FURIOUS!!
    • "Back off, hasbian!"
  • When Scott is trying to "get to second and a half base" with Ramona and makes her dinner.
    Ramona: This garlic bread is really good.
    Scott: Garlic bread is my favourite food, I could literately eat it for like, every meal. Or you know, eat it all the time without ever stopping. [laughs]
    Ramona: Then you'd get fat.
    Scott: Now why would I get fat?
    Ramona: Bread makes you fat.
    Scott: (with a mouth absolutely stuffed with garlic bread) Bread makes you fat?
  • Scott showing a "sketch" of Ramona.
    Scott: Do you know a girl with a hair like this? (Holds up a piece of paper with the most pathetic-looking scribble.)
    Comeau: (with complete confidence) Yes, that's Ramona Flowers.
  • Referring to Wallace, after he told Scott's sister Stacey that he was dating a 17 year old:
    Scott: That gossipy bitch.
    Wallace: You know me.
    • Even better is Wallace telling Stacey that Scott's thinking about dating two girls at the same time. Wallace is unconscious when he does this.
  • "You made me swallow my gum. It's going to be in my digestive tract FOR SEVEN YEARS!"
  • Scott to Julie at the Second Cup: "How are you doing that with your mouth?"
  • Scott and Gideon's dialogue about why Scott wants to fight for Ramona on his first attempt.
    Gideon: You want to fight me... For her?
    Scott: (defiantly) Was that not clear?!
    Scott turns to look at Sex Bob-Omb
    Scott: (inquisitively) ...Was that not clear?
    Stephen Stills & Young Neil: I dunno.
  • Anyone to Scott: "Your hair's getting long/shaggy/etc." Cut to Scott suddenly wearing his dorky hat without having moved from the previous shot.
  • "You once were a ve-gone, but now, you will BE GONE!" "Ve-gone?"
  • "I'm in lesbians with you." "...What?" And then, after Ramona goes with Gideon:
  • Scott giving the passwords to get into Gideon's club.
    • First time around:
      Doorman: What's the password?
      Scott: Whatever!
      Doorman: (beat) 'Kay.
    • Scott goes to the second door:
      Second Doorman: What's the second password?
      Scott: Ugh!
      [They let him in.]
    • The second time around, Scott defeats the first doorman by saying, "Your hair looks stupid."
  • Sex Bob-Omb is at the bar after their lacklustre opening to Clash at Demonhead's concert:
    Stephen Stills: (to Ramona) Be honest. Do we suck?
    Ramona: I dunno. Do you? I'll be right back.
    Ramona leaves for the restroom. Sex Bob-Omb watches her leave.
    Stephen Stills: (deadly serious) She has to go.She knows we suck.
  • Neil singing along quietly to Garbage Truck (and getting the lyrics wrong).
  • Lucas Lee looking at a text message he got and saying "That's actually hilarious!" to himself. Taken to its vainest hilarious conclusion when Chris Evans himself responded to a tweet with a gif of the shot and got called out for it, by Edgar Wright no less.
  • Matthew Patel's completely out of nowhere Bollywood Villain Song.
  • When Scott gets Matthew Patel's e-mail about their upcoming fight, the movie plays it up for as much drama as possible, with Scott going "this is... this is... this is...!" and then the drama abruptly drains away as Scott continues "this is boring. Dele-eeete."
    Patel: Didn't you get my e-mail explaining the situation?
    Scott: ...I skimmed it.
    • Wallace just tuts and shakes his head at Scott as if he were familiar with duelling correspondence etiquette.
  • As Sex Bob-Omb heads to the party in the opening scenes:
    Scott: Oh man, this is gonna suck!
    Kim: At least it'll give us something to complain about.
    Scott: Oh man (wipe to party without breaking Scott's sentence), this suuuuucks!
    Young Neil: Suuuuucks!
    Scott: I'm gonna go pee due to boredom. (leaves)
    Young Neil: (beat) I have to pee.
  • The captions while they hang out with Todd and Envy.
    Envy: You're incorrigible.
    Todd: I don't even know the meaning of the word.
    Caption: HE REALLY DOESN'T.
  • Brandon Routh's pitch perfect delivery of Todd's Don't Explain the Joke moment, especially:
    Scott: I dislike you, capisce?
    Todd: Tell it to the cleaning lady on Monday.
    Scott: What?
    Todd: Because you'll be dust by Monday?
    Scott: Uh...
    Todd: Because you'll be pulverised in 2 seconds. And the cleaning lady...she cleans up dust. She dusts. (makes dusting motions)
    Scott: So um, what's on Monday?
    Todd Well, it's Friday now, and she has the weekends off, so... Monday, right?
  • Kim's apparent rivalry with Crash and the Boys' drummer who is a little girl.
  • "You will no longer be referred to as Young Neil. Now you will be known as Neil."
  • Scott going from reading his e-mail to sitting in front of his door waiting for the package he ordered (to be delivered by Ramona) to arrive.
  • Scott assuring Ramona that his break-up with Knives was clean.
    Scott: She's mature for her age. We're peaches and gravy.
    Knives: (echoing) Noooo...
  • Scott seems to enjoy being with Knives, but you get a look into his mind and he's lamenting "So alone..."
  • Wallace's snarking with Crash and the Boys.
    Crash: Hello, my name's Crash, and these are the boys.
    Wallace: Is that girl a boy too?
    Crash: Yes.
    The drummer flips him off.
    Kim: They have a girl drummer?!
    Crash: This is called "I'm So Sad, I'm So Very Very Sad".
    (two chords; lyrics: "So sad!")
    Thank you.
    Wallace: It's not a race, guys!
    Crash: Okay, this song is for the guy who keeps yelling from the balcony, and it's called 'We Hate You, Please Die.'
    Wallace: Sweet! Love this one.
  • While Crash & the Boys play, Stephen has an almost-inaudible, but perfectly captioned, Freak Out!, creating physical comedy as the others stand there staring in different directions while he paces and yells.
  • "The weak point is the back of her knees. Whenever we were making out I would just - "
    • The little meter in Scott's head which goes from "NO CLUE" to "GETS IT" as he puts together why Roxie wants to fight with him.
  • When Stephen Stills realises that they lost their contract and starts scooping up the change dropped by Gideon's death. Made even funnier when Neil looks like he's going to do the same thing, but really just takes Gideon's gum.
  • When Scott receives Matthew Patel's e-mail:
    Computer voice: You have mail.
    Scott: Dude, this thing claims I have mail!
    Wallace: It's amazing what we can do with computers these days.
  • Knives' entire Freak Out! scene.
    Knives: He only likes her because she's old! She's probably, like, twenty-five!
    • Tamara's calm reaction throughout the entire scene.
  • Scott getting distracted thinking about Ramona during practice.
    Kim: Is your girlfriend distracting you?
    Scott: Girlfriend? (looks at Knives)
    Knives: I'll be quieter.
  • When Lucas Lee does his deadly rail trick, the scene cuts to Scott casually saying "Wow" as it cuts back to Lucas, who is gradually getting faster and faster (as is the music). One time, it even cuts Scott off because Lucas is going that fast.
  • Gideon's "Famous Last Words" after Scott kicks Gideon's ass the second time around.
    Scott: How's it going back there?
    Gideon: (Weakly) You.....dick.
  • The movie's very first line:
    Narrator: Not so long ago, in the mysterious land of Toronto, Canada.
  • At one point Steven Stills is giving a motivational speech to the band, and declares, among other things, they need stalkers. Knives happens to be flattened on the window.
  • At the T.I.B.B event:
    Stephen: "Amp versus amp"? We're going on stage at the same time?
    Scott: That's impossible!
    The next shot showing two stages facing across each other
    Subtitle: ACTUALLY NO (appears over the stage)
    Scott: Okay, my bad.
    Kim: Your bad is saying "my bad."

     The Game 
  • The bass battle with Todd doesn't happen. You just hit him with the guitar instead.
  • Any time you pick up another player and use them as a weapon.
  • From Nega Scott's Ending...
    "Everything was ruined. It was so great!"
    • Also, after destroying the world and enslaving all the other characters, NS decides to...go home and take a nap. After all, it's been a long day.
  • From Knives' Ending...
    "Knives jumped into Scott's arms and kissed him! Suddenly, confetti fell from the sky... It was their wedding day! Knives looked lovely in her gown. All of Scott's friends were there to see... Scott was very confused."

Alternative Title(s): Scott Pilgrim Vs The World


How well does it match the trope?
