- A Battle Droid manning a starship cannon admits he's been programmed to be a terrible shot.
- Ventress orders the Battle Droids to find Yoda. They don't know what he looks like.
- During Yoda's curb-stomping of the whole Separatist droid army, he goes inside a tank. All the Battle Droids try to run away with this dialogue:B1 Battle Droid: Run for it! [two droids get pulled back into the tank]
OOM-series Battle Droid: But I just... got... promoted!
- The OOM-series Battle Droid has trouble getting the B1 Battle Droids to stop and tells them the tanks won't fit. One of the Battle Droids ignores him, only to immediately crash. The OOM-series Battle Droid facepalms.
- Yoda just generally trolling his own Clone Troopers.Yoda: Smaller in number are we, but larger in mind. [chuckles and walks off]
Jek: ...Do you have any idea what the general is talking about?
Rhys: How should I know? There's no figuring a Jedi Master.
- The Battle Droid who tries to tell two other Battle Droids to not shoot Anakin and Obi-Wan... and ends up commenting that he'd warned them after they shoot and the obvious happens.
- Later, Obi-Wan is using the Force to recover 3PO on the internal trains of the Malevolence, when a different train hits the Battle Droid and takes him away. It's Ben's reaction that sells it.
- Still on the front of the train, 3PO shouts "Stop this contraption!" By sheer coincidence, R2 does just that at very moment, sending him flying into some crates, to his bemusement.
- After Obi-Wan has effortlessly demolished most of the Separatist droids sent to ambush him in the hyperspace control room mainly by bowling with droidekas a Battle Droid says "That was impressive." An angered Grievous responds by swatting its head off.
- This lovely bit of snark from Hevy:Hevy: Ooh, meteor shower.
- Rex's plan to take back the Rishi outpost from a squad of commando droids? Just walking up to the door dressed in his own armor and saying "Roger, roger." What does he do when the droids ask him to take off his helmet? Hold the severed head of a commando right in front of the camera. And Cody's reaction to this plan (even more hilarious considering that Commandos' eyes glow when they're active).Commander Cody: This is never going to work.
- However, it actually works in the end. And Rex's response to the Commando Droids once they answer the door?
- On the Resolute, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yularen are concerned because Cody and Rex didn't check in when they were supposed to, which leads to this exchange:Obi-Wan: It seems your captain follows orders as well as you do.
Anakin: Perhaps Cody is boring Rex with standard procedures and protocol.
- R2-D2 cheerfully spaces an assassin droid.
- R3-S6 accidentally turns on Anakin's tracking beacon.Anakin: Let's hope Grievous didn't hear that. [several Separatist capital ships jump out of hyperspace right in front of him] Yeah. He heard it.
- General Grievous is forced to watch as one fighter and one rickety old freighter demolish his entire squadron of droid fighters and cause his cruiser to collide trying to cut them off before getting away scot free. A battle droid next to him awkwardly reports "Uhh, they got away, sir." and Grievous responds by whacking it's head off.
- Rex's reaction when Ahsoka tells him that he gets to carry R3-S6 for the jump down to the Separatist listening post."Well, that's just great."
- Then, when everyone lands, Rex staggers back a few steps because he's carrying an astromech droid, to which the other Clone Troopers snicker.Rex: Next time, one of you is hauling this astromech around!
- Then, when everyone lands, Rex staggers back a few steps because he's carrying an astromech droid, to which the other Clone Troopers snicker.
- While the infiltrators are skydiving down to the listening post, inside we see one Battle Droid give another a box, with instructions not to drop it while taking it somewhere. The droid promptly trips and drops the box. While the first droid shakes its head, and says that as they're newer models nothing gets past them, we see the strike team falling past the windows in the background.
- One Battle Droid tells another its neck joint is causing it problems. The second droid tells it to get its head adjusted on Level 36, because it feels great. As the first Battle Droid is agreeing, a Clone Trooper comes up behind it and rips its head off.
- Ahsoka, Rex, and the Clone Troopers arrive at the door to the station's main reactor. When R3-S6 has the expected trouble opening the door, Denal, one of the Clone Troopers, offers to hotwire the astromech droid. Shortly thereafter, during a firefight in the hallway, Rex uses R3 as cover.
- C-3PO accidentally getting stuck to a large electromagnet, which Jar Jar then uses to destroy a squad of Cattle Droids.
- After successfully escaping from her prison, Padmé rescues C-3PO and tells him to go back to the ship and send out a distress signal. 3PO then informs her that the ship's been destroyed:Padmé: Battle Droids?
Padmé: [switching to an unfazed tone] Jar Jar?
C-3PO: Jar Jar.
- Much of the episode's humor comes from General Grievous's personal housekeeper and medical droid, EV-A4-D. Not only is his speech pattern based on Paul Lynde, he manages to get away with saying things to Grievous that would get other droids dismantled if not for his importance to Grievous's personal care.A4-D: Don't be upset with me, Master. If you were a better fighter, we would not be having this conversation.
- When Dooku meets Hondo for the first time, Hondo offers to take him to Florrum:Dooku: Is it civilized?
Hondo: Eh, that depends upon your definition of "civilized".
- After Anakin gets out from under the debris Dooku collapsed on top of him, he realizes that he has lost his lightsaber. Obi-Wan chides him for letting a rock knock it out of his hand. Anakin cuts in, asking him to give some light with his own lightsaber instead. Obi-Wan tries to activate it, but after a few flickers it goes out.Obi-Wan: Silly thing. It was working a moment ago.
Anakin: You don't suppose it was [tosses a small rock at Obi-Wan's lightsaber, which bounces off] hit by a rock?
- After Ahsoka and Rex save them, Obi-Wan and Anakin deny that they had had any trouble at all. Then Anakin tells them they have to capture Dooku. Ahsoka exasperatedly asks how they let him get away, a fact which Anakin tries to deny rather badly.Anakin: No, we didn't exactly let him... [aside to Obi-Wan] Chime in any time.
Obi-Wan: [very smugly] Oh no, I'm enjoying this far too much.
- This exchange from a bit later:Dooku: [about Hondo's gang] They are devious and deceitful, and most importantly... stupid.
Obi-Wan: It's a wonder you don't get along with them. You have so much in common.
- When Anakin and Obi-Wan walk through a small market in the base, this Funny Background Event: a Jawa bumps into a pirate, who punches the Jawa and sends him flying into another guy. He then jumps on the pirate and starts punching him in the face and the Jawa leaps through the air to hit the pirate as well.
- After the business is concluded, the pirates invite Obi-Wan and Anakin to join them for a party. They have the drinks drugged, but while toasting the Jedi wordlessly and seamlessly use the Force to switch their drinks with their neighbors'. The two enjoy themselves while two of the pirates are collapsed over the table.
- What makes it even more hilarious is that even the normal drinks turn out to be strong enough to knock them out!
- Obi-Wan, Anakin and Dooku are chained together by the same pirates. Hilarity Ensues. Probably the best, after too many old man cracks aimed against Dooku.Dooku: I would kill you both if I didn't have to drag your bodies.
- Anakin and Hondo's conversation after Hondo says the Republic brought an army.Anakin: That can't be right.
Hondo: Are you calling me a liar?
Anakin: Uh, isn't that kind of what you do for a living?
Hondo: You reject my hospitality, refuse to wait in your cell, and now, you're going to insult me?!
Anakin: I'm just saying
Anakin: What? He is a pirate!
Hondo: [Pulls out pad to activate the torture electricity]
Obi-Wan: Yes, but this may not be the best time for you to speak
Anakin: But you
Obi-Wan: At all, Anakin!
- Jar Jar taking out the pirate tanks by himself is one half hilarious and one half awesome.
- Made funnier when one of the tanks shuts down the electricity Hondo was using to torture the Jedi.Hondo: What happened to the power? I was having fun!
- Made funnier when one of the tanks shuts down the electricity Hondo was using to torture the Jedi.
- Anakin, Ahsoka, Aayla, and a bunch of clone troopers come across a lone B1 Battle Droid, who holds up its gun and nervously tells them to halt. At that moment, the doors behind the Battle Droid open with a dozen Super Battle Droids walking in leading to the Battle Droid's renewed confidence.Battle Droid: Ha-Ha!
- Anakin waking up to the sight of a bunch of Lurmen staring down at him:Anakin: Um, Snips??
- On the Separatist base, there are three Battle Droids in a command station. The one in the middle says that they can't have any surprises for the General when he comes back. As the Battle Droids is saying this, Commander Bly pops up and takes down the Battle Droid on the right from behind. The Battle Droid in the middle than turns to his right, and gets just enough time to react to the sight of Rex in the middle of ripping the Battle Droid on the left's head off before Anakin cuts him down.
- Lok Durd seeing an armed defoliator shell rolling towards him. The fact that it's George Takei only makes it funnier.Lok Durd: Help! I'll be defoliated!
- Jar Jar's panic when Peppi Bow rips the helmet of his Hazmat Suit off.
- When the last bomb is defused in the nick of time, Jar Jar faints in relief, causing Padmé, Ahsoka and Rex to turn and stare.
- When the Battle Droids first try to break out of the facility, the last one is too close to the hatch to be shot, Ahsoka begs him to not open it, the Battle Droid refuses and shoots it... And the blast bolt ricochets on the magnetically sealed hatch multiple times before hitting the Battle Droid.
- Anakin and Obi-Wan land on Iego, only to be greeted by dozens of Battle Droids. Anakin rushes forward and cuts a swathe through them before realizing they're not attacking.Obi-Wan: Very impressive. You just destroyed seventeen defenseless Battle Droids without suffering a scratch!
Anakin: [as one more droid falls in two] Eighteen, actually.
- Everything about Jaybo Hood's reprogrammed Battle Droids.
- At the end, Captain Rex's deadpan reaction while lying on a stretcher and recovering from a lethal virus to the idea of training Jar Jar Binks to use a blaster.Captain Rex: I am not training him.
- Waxer and Boil meet a young Twi'lek girl while on patrol, who promptly bites Boil when they try to take her along. When she starts to warm up to them, Boil is still unenthusiastic.Boil: Ah, you made a friend, mission accomplished. Can we go now?
- Later, after chasing after the girl and catching up to her. Waxer greets her happily, Boil, not so much.Boil: Good, you caught her. You know I got binders if we need 'em.
Waxer: [jerks head to look at Boil in silent shock and disapproval]
- Boil's hilariously awkward facial expression and body language when he gets hugged by Numa.
- An unlucky Battle Droid has been tasked with scrubbing the cells the Separatist forces were using to hold starved gutkurrs (a Rylothian predator), and this happens:Battle Droid: [scrubbing the floor] Yup, this is about the worst job in the droid army.
[the Battle Droids in the hallway are gunned down, and the Battle Droid looks up to see Obi-Wan in the hallway, holding Numa, and he smiles]
Battle Droid: And it just went into overtime. [Obi-Wan uses the Force to push a button on a control panel on the wall, closing the cell door]
- A Battle Droid patrol:Battle Droid: Hey look! It's RB-551! No wonder he got blasted, he was one of those older models, controlled by a central computer. Not us, we're independent thinkers!
All the other B1s in the patrol: Roger Roger.
- When Ziro begins his departure from the prison, he starts whining as usual, complaining about the sun. But the real funny bit is that the clone guard on his right lets out an exasperated and disbelieving "Oh my god!" As if he was thinking "How the hell did I get assigned to this?!"
- Todo-360 realising that he doesn't have any memories of memory crashes.
- While onboard Cad Bane's frigate, Rex bumps into a protruding pipe in the dark.
- Anakin goes Papa Wolf on three Battle Droids after Ahsoka is captured by Cad Bane.
- Darth Sidious asks Cad Bane to kidnap some Force-sensitive children for him. Bane initially reacts in mild surprise, suggesting he may be pulling an Even Evil Has Standards, but instead, he feels that kidnapping children is a small time crime for the likes of Sidious. The Sith Lord goes into a little rant about how no Jedi are innocent, and Bane rolls his eyes.
- At Mustafar, Sidious' hologram examines a Rodian baby, who begins crying, no doubt from the discomfort of the presence of the Sith Lord. Sidious responds by mockingly trying to comfort the poor baby.
- A Clone Trooper on a Republic Gunship snarks at how the Geonosians still haven't hit them: "Good thing those bugs can't aim". Three guesses on what happens next. The Black Comedy is concluded when the Clone Trooper who doomed the passenger compartment tries to hold on for dear life but can't hold on and subsequently dies.
- Before the Second Battle of Geonosis, it's revealed that Anakin and Ahsoka have a competition going on between them, counting their kills. Obi-Wan, of course, views this with distaste. At the very end, following a very difficult battle, Ahsoka keeps pushing Anakin to reveal his total, which he finally does: 55. Ahsoka is jubilant, as she totalled 60. Anakin then throws back that he called in an airstrike, so it's a tie, to which Ahsoka tells him he's impossible. As Obi-Wan once again voices his disbelief at their turning war into a game, Ki-Adi-Mundi, the calm, noble Jedi Master, announces his own total: 65. The look on Anakin's face is priceless.Ki-Adi-Mundi: So what do I win?
Anakin: My everlasting respect, Master Mundi.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: [disappointed] Oh.
- Rex finds himself involuntarily dropped off a high wall by Anakin and Ahsoka, just moments before it's blown up. Afterwards:Rex: Next time, just tell me to jump.
Anakin: Now where's the fun in that?
- Obi-Wan's somewhat morbid interest in the Geonosian brain worms, even as Queen Karina has one ready to be implanted in Luminara.Obi-Wan: No, wait, I want to see how it works!
Anakin: I don't think Luminara wants to see how it works.
Luminara: No, I don't.
Obi-Wan: I'm curious. The more we know, the better!
Luminara: [recoiling as the worm is brought to her] I disagree!
Anakin: So do I.
Obi-Wan: Come now, the ear or the nose? Which do you think it will enter?
Anakin: [in slight disgust] I'd say the nose.
- Then, when Anakin kills the worm while Obi-Wan was holding onto it for further study.Obi-Wan: What are you doing? I was going to study that!
Anakin: Study the bottom of my boot!
- Then, when Anakin kills the worm while Obi-Wan was holding onto it for further study.
- Tactical Droid TV-94 is holding Master Eeth Koth hostage, threatening to electrocute him to death, and has Anakin and Adi Gallia surrounded, very sure he's holding all the cards. Then, Anakin Force-pulls him over and cuts off the arm with the shock remote on it. While the Jedi deal with the commando droids, TV-94 hobbles along the command bridge floor trying to get his severed arm, but it keeps getting knocked around in the skirmish. Once he does retrieve the arm and boasts at the Jedi, he tries to press the remote only to remember he doesn't have a free arm to press it with, and then gets cut down.
- Grievous and a group of Battle Droids are stranded on Saleucami, with Obi-Wan and his troops in hot pursuit. At one point Grievous and the droids find a herd of horse-like animals. Naturally, they use them for transport... except Grievous doesn't let any of the Battle Droids ride the animals. He then expresses confusion as to why the droids are running out of power.Random Battle Droid: You wouldn't let us ride on one of those creatures with you, sir. If you would allow us to close down for a mom OH MY GOD!
Grievous: RRAAARRRHHH!!! [slices the droid's head off with a lightsaber] Any more complaints?!
- Rex has been injured, and some of his men leave him at a farm for the night. He's sleeping on a table in the barn when one of the animals comes over and starts licking him in the face, waking him up and forcing him to shoo it off, complete with Rapid-Fire "No!".
- Master Sinube's awful Pun to Ahsoka. He even laughs of his own joke.Ahsoka: I can tell he definitely came from one of those aquatic worlds. You know, one of the watery worlds.
Tera Sinube: So you say there was something fishy about him? [starts laughing while Ahsoka looks unimpressed]
- Obi-Wan and Satine going at each other.Obi-Wan: A Republic military presence is the only sure defense against the Separatists
Satine: Even extremists can be reasoned with!
Obi-Wan: If one can be heard over the clanking of their Battle Droids!
Satine: The sarcasm of a soldier!
Obi-Wan: The delusion of a dreamer!
- What sells the moment is Anakin's Pass the Popcorn face during the above exchange.
- Obi-Wan's reaction to Anakin calling Duchess Satine his girlfriend.
- The death of Tal Merrik is pretty funny in a dark way, especially considering that, in a fraught standoff between him, Obi-Wan and Satine, it's Anakin that kills him. In particular, the satisfied, downright innocent look on Anakin's face as he recovers the detonator while the background music plays a bar from the Imperial March. And Obi-Wan's disapproving "Anakin!""What? He was gonna blow up the ship!"
- After Satine is framed for murder, two clones are shown searching for her, asking an Ithorian if he saw her. In a rare subversion of the often used Bilingual Dialogue trope, the Ithorian answers in his native tongue, that the clones don't understand, and think he doesn't understand them either. According to the script, he did, and his answer was "Yes, I saw her. She's right around that corner."
- Lieutenant Tan Divo explains to a room full of politicians that Senator Onaconda Farr was murdered, and he believes that he must have been hiding something, because all politicians do. Then he looks around expecting confirmation, before realizing that he's talking to a room full of politicians. Just to add to it, they really do have things to hide: Palpatine is a Sith Lord, Mas Amedda is on it, Padmé Amidala is secretly married to a Jedi, Orn Free Taa is a Twi-lek politician, and Lolo Purs is the killer. The only exceptions are Bail Organa and Mon Mothma, and he'll be hiding Padmé's daughter in just a few years, and both of them will be secretly building the Rebellion.
- The brief cut to Palpatine smiling as Lolo Purs takes Padmé Amidala hostage and tries to make her escape, showing he is clearly getting a kick out of the whole spectacle, dark as the implications of it are.
- Obi-Wan arrives with his cruiser at Christophsis and finds Anakin has already attacked the Separatist blockade.Obi-Wan: That's nothing out of the ordinary, especially since I gave him a direct order not to.
- Behind the Scenes example. Dave Filoni revealed that Embo's Kyuzo language was created from intentionally mispronounced French words out of a book about The Smurfs. When his lines are translated directly from French to English, the results are hilarious. An example:Embo: Let's (something) what? (blah) that's Smurfy!
- In a bit of Black Comedy, this exchange between two Clone Troopers just before the Zillo Beast breaks out of the research facility and they get crushed by the doors.Kosmos: If that creature is as powerful as they say, what good are these rifles gonna be?
Unnamed clone trooper: Ah, shut up, Kosmos.
- Seeing the usually unfazed and self assured Palpatine genuinely terrified and running for his life from the Zillo Beast is hilarious.
- The Zillo Beast catches Palpatine's escape ship. Anakin decides to cut the hulk in half with his lightsaber. Rex notices and this exchange occurs:Obi-Wan: Seems like one of Anakin's improvised plans.
Windu: How can it be a plan if it's improvised?
Obi-Wan: Don't worry, just catch them when they fall.
Rex: A lot of the General's plans involve falling.
- Anakin and Mace's banter back-and-forth near the beginning of the episode. It's also oddly heartwarming, since it's one of the few times in the Canon as a whole when they're relatively relaxed towards each other.
- Artoo races to the Jedi Temple to inform the Jedi that Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker are trapped in a crumbling ship. He needs to use the holoprojector and pushes another astromech out of the way, but the droid doesn't take well to that and fights back. They go at each other like a pair of 4-year-olds, and Ahsoka has to break them up.
- Grievous and Ventress finally meet during the siege of Tipoca City. They decide that Ventress will take care of the DNA store and steal Jango Fett's sample, while Grievous and his troops destroy the barracks. Before splitting up, Grievous grabs Ventress by the wrist, and asks her if she'd like him to provide her droid escort. Ventress' reply? Holds Grievous's plate-chin and tells him in a very suggestive tone that he has nothing she could want.
- At the end of the assault on Kamino, there's a minor blink-and-you'll-miss-it Funny Background Event. At the end of their battle, Ventress tries to Force-pull the DNA capsule from Anakin, but a random trooper catches it in midair. That's the awesome. Then when it's zoomed out to show all the clones surrounding Ventress, you can see that trooper suddenly look back to make sure his squad is there to back him up. Only then does he dare point his gun at Ventress.
- Jar Jar distracts the Trade Federation delegates with... art with tableware. And when Lott Dod found out about the supply ships to Ryloth? He just looked at Jar Jar, and he waved back at him.
- Two of the ships pass by on Dod's side of the room before he starts getting suspicious. When he turns around, Jar Jar desperately tries to get him to turn back, only to trail off as the final ship passes on his side.
- Making it funnier, Dod was the only one at the dining table not amused by Jar Jar's art, and gives his own aide an angry face for appreciating it, before the aide frowns with disappointment.
- The general premise of the episode can be one in context. It's essentially George Lucas (or rather, a Pantoran George Lucas look-a-like) vs. Greedo, especially when George himself has been seen wearing a "Han Shot First" t-shirt. And guess what, Greedo doesn't get to shoot at all when confronted with Papanoida.
- The fruit vendor telling a spectacularly bad joke to C-3PO and R2 ... and then laughing obnoxiously at his own joke.
- After C-3P0 finally delivers the fruit he was sent to retrieve, there is a short shot of a rabbit droid placing the fruits on top of a large dessert, numbering them off with each one. A butler droid comes over and takes the dessert away, leaving a number of rabbit droids standing around. They cheer. End scene.
- R2-D2's whole scene in the droid spa is both funny and cute! Not to mention it cuts back and forth with 3PO's torture scene. What an example of Mood Whiplash.
- Vos breaking into Mama's hut.Obi-Wan: [After Vos has just slashed down Mama's door] Vos! Somebody lives here.
Quinlan Vos: Ugh! Smells like somebody died here.
Obi-Wan: [apologizing to Mama] Thousand pardons, Madame. He hasn't mastered the concept of knocking.
- When Lux Bonteri proves that All Men Are Perverts.Ahsoka: Look at me. I'm not so bad, am I?
Lux: [long Pause for a Male Gaze] No, not bad at all.
Ahsoka: [sighs in frustration and rolls her eyes] Well, it seems boys are the same whether they're Republic or Separatist.
- General Grievous' Rousing Speech to a squad of infiltrator droids designed specifically for suicide bombing.Grievous: Some of you may not return. Actually, none of you will return! But don't let that get in your way.
- A pair of bounty hunters pursue Padmé in a high-speed speeder bike chase through Coruscant. Eventually, the chase zooms past a pair of parked cops, one of whom drops the coffee he was drinking in a classic "surprised cop" scene... and then it hits when you realize that not only are the cops droids, but they don't even have mouths to drink with.
- The sheer abuse Padmé put the bounty hunter on her bike through. That, and the discovery of what she meant when, before the chase, she told Onaconda Farr she could take care of herself: she actually meant "I have a blaster and if those thugs who have been attacking senators target me I'll shoot them".
- Padmé, Bail, and Onaconda Farr meet after learning of Mina Bonteri's death. With everyone high-strung about the Republic ordering more troops and sliding further into debt, Onaconda Farr attempts to break the tension with jokes. He... doesn't succeed.Bail: [about arguing against the clone order] I'll start lining up support, but I'll need ammunition.
Onaconda: We can't afford ammunition, remember? [looks around eagerly]
[Beat, Bail gives him a disgusted look]
Onaconda: [deflating] I... joke...
- Then Padmé takes her revenge, when she declares that Onaconda will escort her to talk with the Banking Clan, part because he knows them well, and part because:Padmé: You owe me for telling such a bad joke.
- Then Padmé takes her revenge, when she declares that Onaconda will escort her to talk with the Banking Clan, part because he knows them well, and part because:
- Anakin's growing frustration with the aloofness of the Daughter.Obi-Wan: Anakin, are you alright?
Anakin: [speaking to Obi-Wan] Yeah, but our friend here has [shouts after the Daughter as she continues forward, ignoring him] run off!
- When the Son admits to attacking his father. The flippant way he describes the situation and twiddles his fingers is very darkly humorous in an otherwise super-serious arc. See it here.
- C-3PO is incredulous when he learns that R2-D2 has been given a squad of reprogrammed Battle Droids to command. He may also be somewhat jealous.
- Fives' nervousness about being carbon-frozen, doubling as a Call-Forward:Fives: Are we sure this thing is safe? I don't wanna end up a wall decoration.
- "Fine, we'll do it the Wookiee way."
- Oh, Jinx has a couple gems. "That's great, but it might as well be Coruscant as far as I'm concerned. We have no ship."
- Jinx attempts to use a Jedi Mind Trick on a Trandoshan; it fails. Chewbacca punches the Trandoshan in the head, Jinx tries the mind trick again and it succeeds.
- Near the end, after Prince Lee-Char gives a Rousing Speech to his imprisoned people, right in front of their armed guards, who impossibly outnumber his own body guards and is saved only by the Gungan Army. Upon realizing that reinforcements just arrived, he shouts "Attack!", and swims into battle totally unarmed. Ahsoka's reaction to that is priceless. Doubles as a Funny Background Event.
- A few minutes later, Jar Jar and Senator Tills getting out of the whirlpool, holding onto each other, while slowly spinning around. Sadly, it's part of the episode's Downer Ending.
- Tamson damages Padmé's helmet and it starts to fill with water, threatening to drown her. Then Jar Jar seals the hole with his spit.
- The over-the-top look of utter horror on Jar Jar's face when he realizes that his meeting with the Separatist forces on Naboo will be with none other than General Grievous himself. It isn't until General Tarpals very collectedly pushes down one of his upraised arms that his expression changes.
- Jar Jar's escape when things go south, big time. While Grievous begins monologing about how deep the shit Jar Jar is in is, the clumsy Gungan just books it for the elevator and doesn't look back. Grievous doesn't even notice until he hears Jar Jar furiously mashing the button.
- Clone pilot Warthog's reaction to the Aleena: "Great, this is gonna be another one of those planets." 
- Notice he actually does a Double Take just before he says that.
- Commander Wolffe's general grumpy demeanour throughout the episode. You know he's wondering how in the hell he got assigned this mission.
- When R2 and 3PO catch up with Republic forces again, Threepio announces that they've been on an adventure, and Master Plo proves that he's a troll.C-3PO: Yes, Commander Wolffe. How have you been, sir? We have been on quite an adventure.
Plo Koon: Well, I'm certain Wolffe would love to hear about it.
Wolffe: Uh, a-actually, sir...
- Right in the middle of an awesome moment, Fives and Hardcase laughing like crazy while commandeering two Umbaran starfighters.
- Fives' attempt to persuade General Krell over the intercom that there is nothing unusual going on in the hangar, while Hardcase is failing to pilot an Umbaran starfighter. Especially as the scene is an Internal Homage to Han Solo attempting to do the same thing in A New Hope.Fives: (with the loud clanging of Hardcase crashing into other fighters in the background) Uh, yes sir, everything's... fine in the hangar, sir. Nothing's out of control down here.
Krell: Then why have the alarms been triggered?
Fives: Eeeeeeehhh... Uuuuuuh... Uh, i-it's just a drill. A safety drill, sir.
Krell: Safety check occurs at 0600. Who authorized this drill?!
Fives: Aaaaaauum... weee... are... decrypting the alien hardware, sir. Standard operating procedure.
Krell: Who is this?! What's your CT number?!
- Jesse's Sarcastic Clapping after Krell orders the fighters locked down.
- Near the end, Darts D'Nar flees the scene and activates a bomb strapped on the back of his tactical droid. The droid's reaction would warrant a Tear Jerker if it weren't delivered in Robo Speak:
- This and this. Getting Crap Past the Radar much?
- Ahsoka's Bad "Bad Acting" when being presented as a slave to Queen Miraj. Even Anakin disapproves.Ahsoka: Unhand me, brigand!
- Rako Hardeen, Cad Bane and Moralo Eval arrive in a bazaar on Nal Hutta. They decide to switch out of their prison fatigues and switch to something less conspicuous. What's one of the first things Bane gets? Another Nice Hat to replace his old one.
- Later in the same episode, Ahsoka recognizes him because of said hat.
- Cad Bane kills Bulduga, an Ithorian that's blatantly trying to impersonate him (who's a Duros), which might have been convincing if they weren't drastically different species. Why does he kill him? Not for impersonating him, but for having a nicer hat (which happens to be Bane's original hat) than him, which he then exchanges his current hat for, all in front of the guy's brother.Cad Bane: What are you looking at? It's a nice hat.
- Later in the same episode, after Derrown saves the group from one of the tests designed by Eval, by taking the electrolite syrum, Bane asks Hardeen how he knew that the Parwan could take it. Hardeen replies that he used to kill Parwans for a living. Cue Derrown having an indignant Oh, Crap! reaction. Remember this is a Bounty Hunter who is known as the Exterminator!
- When the warlord Otua Blank expects his bride, he instead finds that Ventress has switched her with Boba Fett.
- There's something strangely funny (and equally depressing) in how Savage, who is normally portrayed as a brute with only a low cunning, plays the Only Sane Man to Maul, who ends up showing himself to be a deeply intelligent mastermind whose greatest fault was in daring to face Palpatine, even if it doesn't last long.
- When Obi-Wan and Ventress are forced to team up against Savage and Maul, they find themselves outmatched and have to flee. Obi-Wan uses this opportunity to lampshade Ventress' tendencies to flee when outmatched:Obi-Wan: We're outmatched.
Ventress: You want to run?
Obi-Wan: I learned from watching you!
- Heck, all of their dialogue together was quite entertaining.[Ventress tosses one of her lightsabers to Obi-Wan after he's disarmed]
Ventress: I want that back.
Obi-Wan: That's fine. Red's not my color.
- Heck, all of their dialogue together was quite entertaining.
- Ahsoka and Lux reminisce about their adventure on Carlac, which makes Steela suspicious, or curious at the least. When she asks them what happened there, Lux gives her a very misunderstandable reply. Ahsoka's expression when she realized what Lux's answer implied was quite funny:Steela: What happened on Carlac?
Lux: Ahsoka's the reason I'm here and not with the Death Watch.
- Anakin smirking in the background whenever Ahsoka and Lux interact with each other is both hilarious and heartwarming.
- Anakin telling Ahsoka to push her feelings aside and focus on the main objective is rather hilarious once you realize that he should take that advice himself.
- Hondo delivers some weapons to the Onderon rebels. This draws the attention of a small group of commando droids, who attack.Hondo: Oh, my, look at the time. [leaves]
- It's made funnier by the fact that he's casually walking away as commando droids are shooting.
- The Battle Droids used for comic relief were divisive in the earlier episodes, but it was actually funny when one droid gets blinded and end up shooting one of its comrades.
- Yet more Hondo, now drunk for your amusement.
- [after being launched into the air] "I'M FLYING!"
- Then he crashes into a bunch of crates. As some of the other pirates go to help him, the circus ringleader has a terrified reactions that amounts to "Oh, God, not again!"
- "I may not be as young as I once was, but... I'm older!"
- Ahsoka trying to threaten him:Ahsoka: If you don't let me go, you're gonna wish you were born a protocol droid!
Hondo: Haha, sometimes I do anyway!
- [after being launched into the air] "I'M FLYING!"
- Ahsoka's reaction when she recognizes right away that the "Animal Instincts" are actually the younglings in disguise who came to rescue her is also priceless.Ahsoka: Oh no...
- Hondo's just the gift that keeps on giving, really.Katooni: [leaps onto Hondo's speeder bike with him] I've got your back.
Hondo: Great... I feel... so safe.
- The guy gives backtalk to Grievous!Grievous: This planet is now under Separatist control! [grabs Hondo by the neck]
Hondo: Uh huh... and... what do you suppose that means? [gets thrown to the floor]
- Hondo's explanation for helping Ahsoka and the younglings when he was willing to kill them the previous episode? "Today is a new day! And lucky for you today, I like children!"
- When Count Dooku accuses Hondo of trying to auction him off to the highest bidder back when he was Hondo's prisoner, Hondo simply asks if Dooku can blame him since a Sith Lord would fetch a great price. It's especially funny because he says as if he meant to compliment Dooku for being such a valuable hostage. Dooku's reaction is priceless.
- Immediately before, when Dooku is talking about the incident the focus is on him, but you can hear Hondo groaning in exasperation in the background the moment it's brought up.
- The guy gives backtalk to Grievous!
- Another good droid moment is when one calls Grievous to tell him they're under attack, and is so busy giving the message that both Zatt and Petro just run up and slice him to bits in the middle of it.
- R2 doesn't take sass from a wannabe officer. What seals the deal is how he takes the Separatist code module and waves it at Gascon, practically mocking him. In fact, much of the humor in that episode comes from R2 totally ignoring Gascon and WAC's fighting over leadership and constantly proving himself the most competent person in the squad - all while neither of the main characters notice.
- WAC-47 asserting authority in the end of the episode. Ben Diskin must've had a blast recording it.
- The other three astromechs of the squad immediately defer to R2's command, instead of WAC or Gascon, showing how little respect they have for the commanding officer too, despite that one of them was brought along for the sole purpose of carting Gascon around.
- Hondo's reaction to his men betraying him; you have to hear the delivery to really appreciate it.
- Don't forget his later interaction with Obi-Wan.Hondo: And leave you alone with the two crazies!? [beat] ...Well, okay.
- And when he gets called out for his insolence.Hondo: Insolence?! [laughs] We are pirates! We don't even know what that means!
- Really, anything Hondo says usually subverts normal cliché Hammy-ness. And it's glorious.
- The surprised moan Embo gives when Savage knocks him off his feet.
- "So the only thing you can tell me is that I will find Jabba... at Jabba's palace?" It's the expression on Maul's face which really sells it.
- Bo-Katan's line after Maul and the Death Watch's plan to negotiate with the Hutts ends in a battle with the Hutts' bounty hunters.Bo-Katan: [laughs] I see negotiations have gone as planned.
Pre Vizla: Secure this platform!
- Savage hitting his head on the lamp is also worthy of a few laughs. Especially because of the fact that the dramatic music that was playing as he got up immediately halted, replaced by the awkward sound of the lamp swaying.
- Darth Maul recruiting Black Sun after Savage Opress beheads their leaders. Ziton Moj's reaction is what sells it.
- The return of the Twilight, which had been absent in the installment since Season 2's "Children of the Force" (since that aired in 2009, that amounts to about 4 years of no screentime). By the time it reappears, it's literally falling apart. Sadly, it's also its last appearance.
- The fact that he borrowed it from Anakin is hilarious in itself. Knowing his former apprentice's track record, he really should have known better.Obi-Wan: Anakin, that's the last time I borrow a ship from you.
- The fact that he borrowed it from Anakin is hilarious in itself. Knowing his former apprentice's track record, he really should have known better.
- Obi-Wan, disguised in the same outfit he used to impersonate Rako Hardeen, leads a Death Watch trooper up the now-decrepit Twilight's loading ramp, to perform a scene one of his future allies would repeat about two decades later. It can all be seen here, as well as the above scene.
- The "prisoner transfer". That is all that needs to be said.
- Ahsoka bringing Anakin up to speed after he finds himself lacking a starfighter:Ahsoka: Fighter crashed. I saved the day. You're welcome.
- Also, Anakin trying to deal with buzz droids while acting like it's just a minor inconvenience to Ahsoka.
- Ventress being her snarky self.
- Her non-lethal beatdown of Commander Wolffe and the Coruscant Guard is both this and a Moment of Awesome, especially with the clones' groggy reactions after the beatdown.
- In an otherwise dark and super-serious story arc, AZI-3 and Fives' earlier interactions were pretty funny.
- Even if they're being jerks to a cabbie, it's inherently amusing to see drunk Clone Troopers.
- Marrok retrieving Embo's hat for him like a Frisbee is both this and a Heartwarming Moment for Embo, especially when he pats Marrok on the head and compliments him in his own alien language.
- Mace and Jar Jar's interactions, with Mace playing the straight man to Jar Jar's wackiness.
- A Frangawl cult member (during the first part) was about to attack, but Mace just looked at him and the guy ran away screaming.
- Jar Jar's claimed justification to the Bahk-Tov council for bringing Mace to Bardotta in the first place is so wrong but so hilarious at the same time. He claims Mace is his servant which would normally reek Unfortunate Implications since Mace is black and this claim is coming from a character who has already been accused of being a similar stereotype long before he was made more tolerable. Mace's annoyed reaction to the claim makes it even funnier.
- The mere idea that Jar Jar Binks has a girlfriend and that there is an entire planet that reveres him.
- Not to mention when Jar Jar got snarky with Mace.
- Mace: [using the Force] I see... people, streets, market.
Jar Jar: [looking out the window] Yep, meesa see that too.
- Also, the idea of Mace Windu being a Butt-Monkey during the first half of Part 1. This can also feel cathartic for those were still mad at him for throwing Ahsoka under the bus in "The Wrong Jedi".
- Queen Julia and Jar Jar share a Big Damn Kiss with a classic Foot Popping...from Jar Jar. Then we cut to Mace Windu:Windu: There's a great disturbance in the Force.
- There is something about Yoda being caught flatfooted when he isn't listening during a meeting of the Jedi Council that is quite humorous. A being so old, so powerful, so revered... acting like a Padawan would in the same situation.
- Yoda asks Anakin to help him escape, but Anakin protests that the council won't like it. Yoda's response?Yoda: Disobeying the council, your expertise is.
- And when he escapes, and Mace demands an explanation from Anakin, he responds with, "Hey, for once, none of this was my idea."
- Jedi starfighters in general look like a crossbreed of a normal Space Plane and a TIE fighter, meant to bridge the gap between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy in terms of design. Then the production team decided to take it Up to Eleven by basically shoving an astromech droid into a TIE Interceptor. The result is so adorable that only Yoda could pull this off without looking ridiculous.
- Near the end of the second issue, as the Shadow Collective forces on Ord Mantell are about to be executed by General Grievous' droid army, Gar Saxon (a Mandalorian) gives the rest of his forces an It Has Been an Honor speech. Ziton Moj gives him a less than enthusiastic look. Thankfully, Maul forced Grievous to shut down the army before they could gun his men down.
- In Issue 4, Darth Sidious' response to Mother Talzin restoring her body.
"Crystal Crisis on Utapau" Story Reels
- The banter between Obi-Wan and Anakin has always been easily the best source of comedy in the installment. Now imagine four episodes, with basically just the two of them having a weird adventure. The voice work James Arnold Taylor and Matt Lanter did must be heard to fully appreciate it!
- Anakin and Obi-Wan pursue two MagnaGuards they suspected with the murder of a Jedi. When they finally catch up, Obi-Wan warns Anakin that they need them intact to get information. Anakin initially tried to disable the droid without harming it, but after it had managed to hit him with its electrostaff one too many times, he got fed up, and Force-pushed it into a Deadly Rotary Fan.Anakin: Oops, I broke it!
- Anakin volunteers to take the first shift standing guard at night. He falls asleep, and they're woken by a bunch of Sugi pointing blasters at them.Obi-Wan: You were supposed to wake me.
Anakin: Yeah, but... well, at least you look rested.
Obi-Wan: Wonderful! I'll make a very pleasant prisoner!
- Anakin and Obi-Wan pursue two MagnaGuards they suspected with the murder of a Jedi. When they finally catch up, Obi-Wan warns Anakin that they need them intact to get information. Anakin initially tried to disable the droid without harming it, but after it had managed to hit him with its electrostaff one too many times, he got fed up, and Force-pushed it into a Deadly Rotary Fan.
- In Part 2, "In Search of the Crystal", a Sugi warrior is inspecting Anakin's lightsaber, even pointing the emitter towards his face. After Anakin warns him to be careful, he uses the Force to activate it and make his point, with expected results.Anakin: Well, I did warn him.
- For some more Black Comedy in "The Big Bang", we are given a shot of bisected Battle Droid crawling after his own still-active severed legs which are walking away from him, even begging them to come back.
- While the Jedi are fighting the Battle Droids after the Pau'an governor ordered them to stand down, one of the Battle Droids asks another what they are supposed to do:Battle Droid 1: What should we do?
Battle Droid 2: I don't know! Ask him!
[Camera pans to show the Battle Droid in question missing its head]
"Bad Batch" Story Reels
- In "A Distant Echo", Anakin and Rex accompany the titular Bad Batch on a covert mission, and they're using the squad's gunship, the Havoc Marauder. As they prepare to board, Anakin notices the Nose Art depicting Padmé in a slitskirt, showing her entire leg. Anakin (being her husband) is understandably not amused, especially when Wrecker's comment adds the insult to the injury:Wrecker: She can negotiate with me any time!
Anakin: [to Rex, under his breath] That is not staying there!
- Bit of Bilingual Bonus, the Aurebesh text on the noseart says "Good to be bad".
- Wrecker getting all teary and sobbing at the prospect of him getting to blow up a Separatist dreadnought, declaring it to be the happiest day of his life.
- The entrance of the Bad Batch's shuttle at the start of the arc, where other Clone Troopers have to run out of the way because of their reckless landing.
- Mace Windu's attempt at negotiation to the Separatists droid army in "Unfinished Business", only for them to completely ignore surrendering and decide to open fire.
- Jesse's remark on how the Bad Batch managed to successfully take on a massive group of droids on their own. Doubles as a Moment of Awesome.Jesse: Are these guys even real?
- After said battle, Wrecker is shown "playing" with a wrecked Battle Droid.Wrecker: Hey Crosshair! This little clanker likes you!
Crosshair: Ah, grow up Wrecker!
- Windu informs Obi-Wan that according to Anakin there's a lot more droids heading towards them, and that it's part of his plan. Obi-Wan's reponse:Obi-Wan: Yes, that sounds like Anakin.
- For a Real Life example, the fact that writer Matt Michnovetz was so obsessed with the Bad Batch that he would always try to find excuses to put them in episodes during story meetings even when it would make no sense, much to Dave Filoni's amusement. It actually got to the point where Filoni thought he was the writer of this arc when it was actually Brent Friedman, though Michnovetz wrote a follow up arc with the Batch on Kashyyyk and the two writers would work together to flesh out the characters.
- Quinlan instructs a protocol droid named Blue to list every synonym for his name in every language he knows. Just for the heck of it.
- Quinlan and Ventress's first meeting. Ventress has just successfully cornered her target, Moregi, when Vos tackles him out of nowhere. Then when Ventress exasperatedly asks him what's he doing, he tells her that "It's called a tackle!" The crowning moment comes moments later when Vos attempts to flirt with Ventress while trying to restrain their quarry:Vos: Relax, I got this, honey!
Ventress: Honey?! [knocks Vos flat on his ass]
- Ashley Eckstein revealing to the Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 audience the true story of when she first heard about the installment's revival via texts from Dee Bradley Baker, but also revealing it to Dave Filoni, who was unaware his cast members were passing confidential information behind his back and proceeded to Facepalm and shake his head while they read the texts aloud.Dee: Rex had to tell Ahsoka, there's just no way.
Ashley: Exactly! I mean, if we're not in Dave's trust tree, then, Ahsoka and Rex, we have our own trust tree.
Dave: [slowly shaking his head at the camera in disapproval]
