Go To

  • Jensen, showing his ingenuity, by using whatever he could find in the middle of the Bolivian make toy dinosaurs...and have them hump.
  • "That's right, bitches! I got a crossbow!"
  • "I'm the black MacGyver — BlaGyver!"
  • "You call me Legless Pooch again, and you'll be Headless Jensen."
    • "I like Legless Pooch! It makes you sound like a pirate!"
  • The scene in the van where Pooch makes Clay and Roque apologize to each other.
    Pooch: Don't you two feel so much better?
    Clay and Roque: No.
    Pooch: Well, I don't give a shit...cuz I do! Alright, I say we go watch Jensen get himself killed, yeah?

  • Even Cougar gets his own sort of funny moment that's also a crowning moment of badass.
    Aisha: You know that if we do this, we're waging a war against the entire Central Intelligence Agency.
    Cougar: They started it.
  • The entire scene involving Jensen infiltrating the office building.
    • With the crown jewel being this bit:
    Jensen: *pulls out finger guns* I'm warning you, I'm a lethal killing machine. It was a secret government experiment. They did stuff to me, spooky stuff...anal stuff. Turned me into a dangerous telekinetic. As the ancient Tibetan prophecy states..."Don't start none; won't be none."
    Security Guard: *reaches for his holster and pulls out a pair of handcuff* Telekinetic your way outta this.
    Jensen: Pow! Boom!! *with each noise, the security guards on either side get blasted off their feet, points his fingers at the last guard standing, does a Clint Eastwood impersonation* Face down, or I'll make your heart stop beatin' with my mind.
  • Pooch and Jensen finding transportation to get them and the kids away from the impending explosion:
    Pooch: (finding a broken down yellow school bus in their search for an escape vehicle) Ah!
    Jensen: No!
    Pooch: Yeah!
    Jensen: Really?
    Pooch: Why not!
    Jensen: Can you?
    Pooch: Of course!
    Jensen: ...Okay.
  • "Sssssssshit! She's got a gun...and it's pointed at my dick, Clay! It's pointed at my DICK, Clay!!!"

  • Pretty much ANYTHING that comes out of Jensen's mouth is a hoot.
  • The entirety of the soccer scene. The highlight being Jensen getting into a fight with the coach.
  • "Ready to take a giant step for...guys who steal stuff I guess."
  • 'What the hell was that? That was a 'hit him in the face' nod, not a 'throw him off the roof' nod.' Max is an evil bastard, but damn if he isn't hilarious.
Max: Do you have any fours?
Scientist: Go fish?
Max (looks at his hand, revealing he has several fours): You actually have two fours...two. You don't know how to play this game, do you?
  • Max getting mugged at the end. It makes it better just how nonchalantly he takes it.
  • Jensen tries to flirt with Aisha before the truck heist. It goes...about as well can be expected for Jensen.
    Jensen: So...where ya from...originally?
    Aisha: I grew up in the wilds of northern Africa.
    Jensen: Wow, so...that must've been...*beat*...sandy. Do you have any hobbies?
    Aisha: When I was little, I collected human ears.

  • Pooch after getting shot in the leg gets asked twice if he can stand. His responses are as follows:
    Pooch, the first time he's asked: I've been BOTH my legs. What kind of dumbass question is that, really?!
    Pooch, the second time: Oh, oh, this is Stupid Question Day! This is Stupid Question Day, and nobody decided to tell me. Nah, it's cool. It's all good.
  • This exchange during the final confrontation between Clay & Max:
    Max: "So, since you can't shoot me..."
    Clay: * shoots Max in the shoulder *
  • Or this exchange:
    Roque: If anything smells like a trap, I get to put a bullet in your skull. Does that sound fair?
    Aisha: That sounds like fun.
    Jensen: Sounds like my parents.
  • Max may be an arrogant, obnoxious, unlikable asshole...but he's a FUNNY, arrogant, obnoxious, unlikable asshole. And Wade plays off of him surprisingly well.
    Max: What do you believe in, Wade? I'm guessing shotguns and big titties.
    Wade: I also enjoy air shows and beer.
Max: What am I looking at here, Wade?
Max: "Clay and his unit?" That sounds like a porno, Wade.
Max: You get me that 18-man firing squad I asked for?
Wade: Yeah.
Max: Okay. Change of plan. Kill 'em.
Wade: Kill my 18 guys?
Max: Or fire 'em. Whichever's easiesi.
Wade: Honestly? Firing them.
Max: Okay. You give them intel on Clay's people?
Wade: Yeah...
Max: Aaaand we're back to killing them.
Wade: ...Fine. What're we doing instead?
Max: What's the matter? You related to them?
Wade: Actually, one of them, yeah.
Max: By blood?
Wade: A brother-in-law. I said I'd kill him. What're we doing?
  • Clay seems to have some really...interesting lady problems.
    Roque: Think you're thinking clear on this? Huh? 'Cuz every time we mess up, it's because of a woman.
    Clay: Name one time that I...
    Roque: Amber.
    Clay: Amber wasn't the problem, Amber's husband was the problem.
    Pooch: Amber's husband wasn't the one who shot you.
    Jensen: What about Emma?
    Clay: Emma doesn't count. I didn't sleep with Emma.
    Roque: No, because she put a bomb in your car!
    Clay: All right, I admit...that did take a little of the romance out of the relationship.
  • Roque's funny moments tend to be snarky one-liners.
    Roque: Really, bro? "Hi, what's your name"? "I have no legs, but I wanna take you on a date"?
Roque: Oh, gee, I sure hope nobody sees us in this bright, banana-yellow Pinto...
Clay: Are you ashamed to be seen in an American classic?
Roque: ...This is an American classic?
Roque: Yeah, no it's a helluva plan. Ya know what? Pooch can set up over there by the taco stand, and Jensen could set up communications right there by the hookers.

How well does it match the trope?
