Bull Durham (1988)

The entire infield meeting on the pitcher's mound to discuss wedding gifts for the upcoming marriage of the team's devout Christian named Jimmy (William O'Leary) to amoral groupie Millie (Jenny Robertson), punctuated by irate fast-talking coach Larry Hockett's (Robert Wuhl) suggestion: ("...candlesticks always make a nice gift, and uh, maybe you could find out where she's registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware pattern"); also the scene of erratic, dim-bulb young pitcher Ebby "Nuke" Laloosh (Tim Robbins) knocking down the bull mascot twice and also hitting the public address announcer; and the scene of veteran catcher Crash Davis (Kevin Costner) teaching Nuke the lyrics to his butchered version of "Try a Little Tenderness" on the team bus (instead of "Young girls they do get wearied" he sings: "Young girls they do get woolly"); and devout baseball groupie Annie Savoy's (Susan Sarandon) lengthy opening narration: ("I believe in the Church of Baseball") and Crash's memorable response to her proposition to "hook up with one guy a season": "Well, I believe in the soul, the c--k, the p---y, the small of a woman's back, the hangin' curve ball..."; and the inspired rained-out scene in which the team's players at midnight play in the muddy, water-soaked ball field

Yeah, it's me, Mr. Squirrel. Yeah, hi, just a harmless squirrel, not a plastic explosive or anything, nothing to be worried about"), and the loud, boorish, and wisecracking club member Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield): "Oh, this your wife? Ooh, a lovely lady. Hey baby, you're all right.

Chasing Amy (1997)

They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!"; when Banky replies: "Well, isn't that true?", Hooper shoots Banky with a gun (it's only a set-up) while crying out: "Black Rage!"

Chicken Run (2000)

The futile, disastrous attempts by the chickens to fly with additional mocking and ridiculing commentary by wisecracking rodents Nick (voice of Timothy Spall) and Fetcher (voice of Phil Daniels): ("Birds of a feather flop together!", "Is that your first of-fence?", "Poultry in motion!"); also, Babs' (Jane Horrocks) disappointment after a near-death experience: "All me life flashed before me eyes... it was really boring"

A Chump at Oxford (1940)

The opening scene in which the Tramp (Charles Chaplin) unsuccessfully attempts to extricate himself from the lap of a large marble statue - with a giant sword catching the seat of his pants; also the scene of the Tramp admiring a store window - and just missing falling into a freight elevator hole behind him; and the famous prize fight scene in which the Tramp tries to raise money for a beautiful blind flower girl's (Virginia Cherrill) operation by entering the boxing ring in a balletic bout that he believes has been fixed; and the hilarious spaghetti-confetti sequence in which the Tramp confuses the spaghetti on his plate with strings of streamers; also the scene in which the blind girl knits and completely unravels Charlie's vest

City Slickers (1991)

Clerks (1994)

A foul-mouthed comedy with some outrageous laughs about two clerks in Asbury Park, NJ stores: convenience store clerk Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) and his grungy anti-social video-store clerk friend Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson), with dialogue about Dante's girlfriends (including Dante's dialogue with girlfriend Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti) about her past sex life: "How many dicks did you suck?" - and her answer after contemplation: "Something like 36"), interactions with indecisive, confused, and irate customers including Randal's phone order of pornography video titles (example, "All Tit-F--king, Volume 8", "I Need Your C--k", "Ass-Worshipping Rim-Jobbers", "My C--t Needs Shafts", etc.) while a Mom and young child stand close by waiting for the title "Happy Scrappy Hero Pup"; also their idle chatter (especially the scene of their discussion regarding the politics of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi)
