Funny moments from the film Thor. For funny moments from the comics, see The Mighty Thor/Funny.


  • "You dare threaten me, Thor, with so puny a weap-" [tasered]
    • Bonus points for the hilarious irony of the god of thunder being dropped by a taser.
    • Selvig and Jane's shock and Darcy's line afterwards put the cherry on top of it all. "What? He was freaking me out!"
  • "YOU ARE NO MATCH FOR THE MIGHTY-" [injected]
    • In the butt. Nose smooshed against the glass, with "squeeeek" sound effect as his face slides down the window. And absolutely perfect expression on Hemsworth's face.
  • Jane running over Thor - twice. "I'm really sorry, I'm not doing this on purpose!"
    • The best part was while Jane was being worried about subduing Thor if they need to, Darcy is checking her taser.
  • Thor is trying coffee for the first time.

Thor: This drink, I like it! ANOTHER!! *hurls mug to the floor*

  • God of Thunder walks into a pet store. God of Thunder demands a horse. Possibly the best moment in the entire movie.

Thor: I NEED A HORSE!
Pet Shop Owner: We don't have horses. Just dogs, cats and birds.
Thor: Then give me one of those large enough to ride.

    • The delivery makes it even funnier than it sounds. Just look at how earnest Hemsworth's face is when he says it.
      • Not to mention that that scene clearly contains 2011's best Puppy Reaction Shot. Yes, that's right--as Thor comes striding into the shop, a number of adorable puppies look over curiously and this troper laughs to the point of tears every time. The shop owner's expression of sheer, unadulterated "What the hell just happened?" is only the icing on the cake.
  • Thor referring to Coulson as "Son of Coul", which thanks to Memetic Mutation has become a Fandom Nickname.
  • Jane bemoaning the loss of years of research, and Darcy bemoaning the loss of 30 songs she downloaded into her iPod. Like it's the same thing.
  • "[...]and everything I know about this phenomenon is either in this lab or in this book, and you can't just take it away from-!" *YOINK*
  • Darcy is Plucky Comic Relief incarnate.
    • "What's Myeh-Myeh?"
      • "I found Myeh-Myeh!"
    • When they get out of the car after hitting Thor:

Darcy: I think that was legally your fault.

    • Upon seeing Thor after getting out of the car:

Darcy: Whoa! Does he need CPR? 'Cause I TOTALLY know CPR.

    • When Thor is freaking out:

Thor: Hammer?! Hammer?!
Darcy: Yes, we know you're hammered... kind of obvious.

    • When they're at the diner:

Darcy: How could you eat a whole box of pop tarts and still be this hungry?

      • And in that scene, she takes a photo of him and says "This is goin' on Facebook, smile!" And he does. Just totally goes with it and grins dorkily. It's awesome.
    • And of course:

Darcy: You know, for a crazy homeless person he's pretty cut.

    • And when Jane explains to the hospital staff that Darcy was the one who tasered Thor. Darcy gives a matter-of-fact "Yes, I did!"
  • SHIELD agents seeing the Warrior's Three and Sif walking down the street:

SHIELD Agent #1: Is the Renaissance Fair in town?
SHIELD Agent #2: Call it in.
SHIELD Agent #1: (on radio) Yeah, we got Xena, Jackie Chan, and Robin Hood...

    • Even better, they can't figure out how to describe Volstagg...
  • "FOUND YOOOOOOU~!"
    • And their big, dopey grins when they're tapping on the glass. It's just adorable.
      • Made even better by Jane, Darcy and Erik's reactions. Three dumbfounded stares and Erik and Darcy actually drop their coffee in shock. At the same time !
  • Hawkeye's few lines are CMOF.

Hawkeye: Want me to slow him down sir, or you sending in more guys for him to beat up?
Hawkeye: You better call it, Coulson, 'cause I'm startin' to root for this guy.

  • Erik's conversation with Coulson.
    • How did an MD tear through an entire camp of highly-trained SHIELD agents? "Steroids!"
    • When it seems like they are about to get away.

Coulson: ...and Mr. Selvig? Keep him away from the bars.
Erik: I will.
...
Thor: Where are we going?
Erik: To get a drink.

  • Immediately after that, Thor and Selvig drinking. There's a deleted scene on the DVD at the bar where Selvig imitates Thor by smashing his mug of beer and demanding "ANOTHER!" They both say it and then the bartender repeats it and gives them another mug. Seconds later, they're going back to Jane's trailer and singing a song.
    • This ends with Thor toting the unconscious Selvig back to Jane's. "We drank, we fought, he made his ancestors proud."
  • Stan Lee's cameo. "Did it work?"
    • Even funnier, his character is credited as "Stan The Man".
    • Hell. The whole scene surrounding the hammer's crater was pure win: the locals set up a tailgating party while everyone tries to lift Mjölnir.

Guy holding a beer: My turn.

  • Thor's rousing speech when it comes to Sif.

Thor: And who proved that a maiden had a place in battle, above all objections?
Sif: I did.
Thor: ...well, yes. But I supported you!

  • Early on there is an extremely tense face off with Thor, Loki, Sif, and the Warriors Three deep in enemy territory, one poorly-chosen word away from getting killed and starting a war. Loki manages to convince Laufey to let them depart safely, then this happens:

Frost Giant Soldier: (to Thor) "Run home little Princess."
Loki: (completely deadpan) "Damn."

    • Thor's grin in that scene sells it for me
  • Anyone know that scene where Fandral called out Volstagg on his eating while things are getting worse?

Fandral: Our dearest friend banished, Loki on the throne, Asgard on the brink of war, yet you managed to consume four wild boars, six pheasants, a side of beef, and two casks of ale! Shame on you, don't you CARE?!
Volstagg: Do not mistake my appetite for apathy!

  • The SHIELD agents first spot the Destroyer, but mistake him for another Iron Man prototype. Easy assumption to make, the poor guys!

Agent: Is it one of Stark's?
Coulson: I don't know. The guy never tells me anything.

  • From the deleted scenes, Loki you-have-to-be-kidding face when discovers that his plans are out of control because Thor has signed him in for that little trip to Jotunheim.
  • Then there's Sif and the Warriors Three deciding to go against Loki and try to find Thor on Earth. They approach Heimdall, fully expecting to face one of the greatest of badasses. When they tell him their plan, he simply says "Good" and goes along with it.

Heimdall: I am bound by honor to our king! I cannot open the bridge to you!
Fandral: ... complicated fellow, isn't he?

  • A small moment when Loki negotiates with Laufey, as he offers to trade them back the Casket of Ancient Winters to return Jotunheim to its former... extended awkward pause... glory.
  • It's definitely not MEANT to be funny, and in fact is an excellent example of the phrase 'inarticulate rage': when Loki tries to intervene in Odin and Thor's post Jotunheim screaming match, Odin just ROARS at him and Loki immediately shuts up. It's pretty hilarious.
    • The best part is that that roar wasn't in the script.
  • When Thor sets Mjölnir on top of Loki, effectively pinning him down. The sheer genius of it is what made me lose it the first time.
  • Coulson's deadpan description of the Curb Stomp Battle between a Brought Down to Badass Thor and his best SHIELD agents.

Agent Coulson: It's not easy to do what you did. You made my men—some of the most highly trained professionals in the world—look like a bunch of minimum-wage mall cops. That's hurtful.
