Funny / The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl

Go To

  • Mr. Electricidad is very intent on having his name pronounced correctly: "Mr. Electricidad, exactly. Not Mr. Electric, not Mr. Electricidadadadadadada."
  • Linus the bully's utterly hamtastic delivery of this line.
    Linus: I did not! Mr. Electric, send him to the principal's office and HAVE HIM EXPELLED!
    • No, strike that. The utterly hamtastic delivery of anything Linus and his alter-ego Minus ever says.
    • Not to be outdone, Mr. Electricidad follows it up with this...
      Mr. Electricidad: You’re in my class! Not the other way around! I know everything! And you...know nothing! At the end of class, both of you report to the principal’s office...with your parents!

  • Lavagirl blasts Mr. Electric with fire, and it appears as though it works, but he reveals he's Playing Possum with an Eye Awaken and says, "Not for reals."
  • When Max gets hungry in the Dream Graveyard... let's just say he should've chosen his words a bit more carefully.
    Max: I'm so hungry, I could eat lava rocks.
    (takes a bite out of something Lavagirl offers him, and promptly starts steaming from the ears and coughs up a mouthful of flame)
    Max: What is that?
    Lavagirl: Lava rocks.
    • Sharkboy then offers him a piece of "fresh" sushi which he claims is only a few weeks old, and when Max predictably turns it down, Lavagirl offers to warm it up only to burn it to a crisp.
      Max: Never mind. I'm not that hungry.
  • Sharkboy's deadpan suggestion when the main trio find that they can't control the Train of Thought.
    Lavagirl: What do we do?
    Sharkboy: Yell? (shrugs) Scream?
    (cut to them doing just that)
  • Max and Sharkboy's reaction when Lavagirl wakes up on the ice bridge.
  • When Mr. Electric shows up on Earth, we get this:
    Mr. Electricidad: I don't believe it!
    Max: It's right there in front of you!
    Mr. Electricidad: Well I can see that! What I can't believe is... You dreamt me! As a big round bad guy!

  • George Lopez gives his usual comedic style as Mr. Electricidad.
    Electricidad: Okay, kids, who's next? Remember, there are no dumb ideas.
    Linus: Maybe we can freeze his circuits!
    Electricidad: That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard. We're in the middle of Texas, in August.
  • Max tries to make something for them to float down a river in, and Sharkboy stands behind him, eyes closed and chanting "Shark boat with turbo boosters". His face when he opens his eyes and looks expectantly is hilarious.
  • At one point, the trio have to escape the land of Milk and Cookies or whatever the hell, and they need Max to fall asleep and dream up a boat. They do this by having Sharkboy sing a lullaby, with lyrics consisting of how Sharkboy is going to beat the shit out of Max if he doesn't succeed. AND IT WORKS.
  • Sharkboy tells Max they should ask the Ice Princess for help and adds that Max will like her because she's the prettiest girl in the world. Lavagirl angrily blasts him.

    SB: [blissfully] Ouch...
