20 of the Funniest Line Deliveries in Movie History

It’s a big part of an actor’s job to say the strangest shit and make it sound normal. There are very few movies about boring people doing boring things, so unless you wanna go back to waiting tables, you’re gonna have to figure out how to naturally make sounds in an order no human has ever made them. No, Halle Berry doesn’t technically have an Oscar for trying to make, “Do you know what happens to a toad when it’s struck by lightning?” work, but it’s definitely one of the reasons.

A real artist, however, can pull off the opposite: delivering normal lines in such a ridiculous way that it unlocks a core memory. For example, Redditor e_2718 “was watching Inglourious Basterds, and the way Christoph Waltz’s character says, ‘Oooh, that’s a Bingo’ is a strange combination of funny and weird.” It made them wonder about other people’s “favorite deliveries of lines or words, but with the limitations that they are not extraordinary in themselves but become so because of the way an actor speaks them.” They then asked r/Movies, “What is your favorite delivery of an otherwise normal word or sentence?” and Reddit gave them lines on lines on lines.
