  • From the film.
    • Sunny, on their current alleged guardian, Aunt Josephine:

Someone's been to Crazytown.

    • Later on, after getting to know her better for her paranoid manner:

She's the mayor of Crazytown.

    • The part where Count Olaf stops his car on the train tracks in front of the convenient store, while rather scary, has this funny bit:

Olaf: *points to Violet, Klaus, and Sunny respectively* Soda. Soda. Banana.
Sunny: *subtitled* Bite me.

    • Remember that Sunny speaks in baby noises with subtitles.
  • Count Olaf in The Vile Village: "It's cool... to obey the law."
  • In The Hostile Hospital, the... narrator tells us about his friend, a lepidopterist. He was running away from these guys and had to eat his butterfly so the other insects in bug prison wouldn't beat it up. Then once he got out of jail, he burped it back up or something.
  • Count Olaf's and Esme's evil laughs.
  • Any of the bizarre tangents the Lemony Narrator goes off on - notable are "the bears bear hard hard yarn yarns" and "the Baudelaires' journey up the Vertical Flame Diversion was so dark and treacherous that it is not enough to write 'the Baudelaires' journey up the Vertical Flame Diversion was so dark and treacherous that it is not enough to write 'the Baudelaires' journey up the Vertical Flame Diversion was so dark and treacherous that it is not enough to write 'the Baudelaires' journey up the Vertical Flame Diversion was so dark and treacherous that it is not enough to write My dear sister... "
    • Also Snicket's "in the dark" tangent in one book that goes on for several pages.
