Scarface: Don't worry, man. All we gotta do to get you out is to get ten percent of ten million dollars. Which by our calculations is...
Brian: ...Fucking impossible, man!

A movie about four stoner friends (Dave Chappelle, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams and Guillermo Díaz) living in New York City. One of them feeds a diabetic police horse candy (he didn't know it was diabetic) and is arrested as a cop killer (yes, it's a comedy). The rest of the movie is about how his friends have to raise $1,000,000 to bail him out of jail.

Extremely funny, as long as you don't have a problem with foul language and marijuana use. Jon Stewart recommends you watch it on weeeeed.

Thurgood Jenkins: I don't do drugs, though. Just weed.

Tropes used in Half Baked include:

Mary Jane Potman: My father was a drug dealer.
Thurgood Jenkins: That must've been the shit.
Mary Jane Potman: It ruined his life.
Thurgood Jenkins: That must've been shitty.

  • Enthusiasm Versus Stoicism: The Guy on the couch under stoic.
  • Fridge Logic: Kenny didn't know the police horse was diabetic, right? So why is it that he's charged with murder, when a crime more like "involuntary copslaughter" would be more fitting?
  • Generation Xerox: The "After School Special" smoker and the "I'm 40 but still cool and wondering how to bond with my son" smoker.

Thurgood: Of course, across town, the kid's nanna is getting high to treat her glaucoma.
Nanna: And it's good for my arthritis, too.

Brian: Hey, Jan... will you be my girlfriend?
Jan: Well, I would, but I'm gay. I'm a big dyke.
Brian: Oh. What's that like?
