Funny / Scream 2

Go To

As a Moments subpage, all spoilers are unmarked. You have been warned.

  • The opening scene, where Jada Pinkett and Omar Epps have possibly the least romantic first date ever when going to see the first Stab movie.
    • Jada Pinkett's character's assertion that horror movies are notorious for "excluding the African-American element" and Omar Epps' character countering that it's not like "Sandra Bullock is Miss Ethnicity."
  • The first scene with Sidney, when a caller pretending to be Ghostface asks what his name is. Unfortunately for the caller, Cory Gillis, Sidney has caller ID and identifies him, getting an Oh, Crap! from him as she proceeds to be a smartass towards him before he hangs up.
    Sydney: (after he hangs up) Hope you enjoyed the movie.
  • During film class, after Randy insists Sequelitis is always in effect, other students name various sequels to try and prove him wrong. A Take That! at Aliens ensues, and one student tries to quote the film with "Get away from her, you bitch!" (which it is, by the way), but...
    Randy: I believe the line is "STAY away from her, you bitch!" (looks to the professor) This is film class, right?
    The professor half-shrugs as if to say "he's got you there"
    • The professor also gives a "fair point" nod when, eventually, someone suggests The Godfather Part II as being better than the original.
  • Dewey copping a feel on Gale during a lovey moment between the two on a table. Right when the killer is watching them. It has to be seen to be believed.
  • Joel the Camera Man, replacing Gale's previous Camera Man Kenny. He knows what happened to Kenny and due to this is very nervous and easily scared he'll share the same fate. Opinion may vary but his funniest moment is upon seeing Randy's dead body in the Van, in which he passes out after Gale and Dewey run. He bolts from the film right after.
    Joel: I wanna report the news. I don't wanna be the news!
  • Luke Wilson's dead-on impersonation of Skeet Ulrich in the Stab movie.
  • Cotton gets taken to the police station. He says "I don't know about homicide, but you've definitely got me for raising my voice in a public library."

  • Joel and Gale pondering the fate of Kenny from the previous movie.
    Joel: The guy was gutted.
  • All the scenes involving the film's version of Scream called Stab, exaggerating all the original scenes with real life actors.
  • Before his death, Randy getting pissed when the killer mocks the fact he'll "never be the lead in a movie". Randy's rage makes it funny before the Mood Whiplash.
    Randy: ...FUUUUCK YOU!!
  • Dewey confronting Gale about the way she wrote about him in her book. It's clear she's both sorry and finds his reaction hilarious.
    Dewey: Oh yes, I do read, Miss Weathers.
  • Cici's verbal ping-pong with Ghostface.
    Cici: Why do you always answer a question with a question?
    Ghostface: I'm inquisitive.

  • Gale gets punched by Sidney a second time, while Hallie cheers "did you get that on film?", prompting Joel to mimick her annoyingly.
  • During his song to Sid in the cafeteria, Derek begins jumping across tables, almost kicking sorority sister Murphy right in the face.
  • Randy and Dewey discussing the rules for a slasher sequel, especially when they get to suspects. Randy is initially leaning towards Sidney's boyfriend Derek, before deciding the killer is "not a Nick-At-Nite rerun type of guy, he wants to break new ground." Randy then lands on:
    Randy: Mickey, the freaky Tarantino film student! (Beat) But if he's a suspect, so am I, so let's move on.
    Dewey: Let's not move on. Maybe you are a suspect.
    Randy: Well, if I'm a suspect, you're a suspect.
    Dewey: Right. Okay, let's move on.
