Nonsensical dialogue.

Blogging from A to Z Challenge

Theme: Humor in film -- what makes me laugh:

Nonsensical dialogue.

Sometime a character says something that makes absolutely no sense, but it makes me laugh.

For instance...

(A Goofy Movie, 1995) It's night, Goofy and his son are in their parked car. Goofy, asleep, snores loudly, then suddenly sits up, looks over at Max...

How many cups of sugar does
it take to get to the moon?

Uh... three and a half?

Satisfied, Goofy goes back to sleep.

When Bolt is missing (Bolt, 2008), Penny's agent announces they found her dog, but she quickly realizes it's just a look-alike replacement. 

That is not Bolt.

Well, that depends on how you look at it.
You know, when I was little, I wanted
a bicycle for my birthday, but my parents
got me a baseball glove... so... (chuckles) know what I did? I pretended 
that baseball glove was a bicycle...
and I rode it to school every day.
True story.

In Horton Hears a Who! (2008) Katie tells Horton...

In my world everyone is a pony, 
and they all eat rainbows,
and poop butterflies.

Crazy, yet funny, nonsense!

Can you recall some humorous nonsensical dialogue?

(This was actually posted on April 29 but I dated it April 16 to keep the alphabet letters in order.)


  1. In "A Guy Thing" there's this bit of dialogue:
    Dorothy: These are going to be our in-laws, so we really have to make sure that...
    Buck: Honey, I'm a pants salesman. I think I know how to act around people.

    What??? Crazy, nonsensical, and the whole movie has stuff like this in it!

  2. @Sue ... I haven't seen "A Guy Thing" yet. That dialogue made me laugh!
