Re: Favourite Comedy Scene?

Worf and some awkward moments are fun when somebody asks him his opinion and he goes all defensive. And there are many of those.

from "All Good Things..."
TROI: "Worf, we were strolling barefoot along the beach while balalaika music played in the air... ocean breeze washing over us... stars in the sky... a full moon rising... and the most you can say is "stimulating"?"
WORF: "It was... VERY stimulating."

Troi walks away
WORF: ...what?

In "Generations", where Data says "Open Sesame!" and the door opens, and then he says, "You could say that I have a magnetic personality!"

In I, Mudd
CHEKOV: You know this man, Captain?
KIRK: Oh, do I know him. Harcourt Fenton Mudd, thief
MUDD: Come now.
KIRK: Swindler and con man
MUDD: Entrepreneur.
KIRK: Liar and rogue.
MUDD: Did I leave you with that impression?
KIRK: He belongs in jail, which is where I thought I left you, Mudd.
[...]
KIRK: All right, Harry, explain. How did you get here? We left you in custody after that affair on the Rigel mining planet.
MUDD: Yes, well, I organised a technical information service bringing modern industrial techniques to backward planets, making available certain valuable patents to struggling young civilisations throughout the galaxy.
KIRK: Did you pay royalties to the owners of those patents?
MUDD: Well, actually, Kirk, as a defender of the free enterprise system, I found myself in a rather ambiguous conflict as a matter of principle.
SPOCK: He did not pay royalties.
MUDD: Knowledge, sir, should be free to all.
KIRK: Who caught you?
MUDD: That, sir, is an outrageous assumption.
KIRK: Yes. Who caught you?
[...]
MUDD: The key word in your entire peroration, Mister Spock, was, death. Barbarians. Well, of course, I left.
KIRK: He broke jail.
MUDD: I borrowed transportation.
KIRK: He stole a spaceship.
MUDD: The patrol reacted in a hostile manner.
KIRK: They fired at him.
MUDD: They've no respect for private property. They damaged the bloody spaceship. Well, I got away, but I couldn't navigate, so I wandered out through unmapped space, and here I found Mudd.

Data, tapping out and singing the "Life Forms" song on the console on the bridge...

"...where are you?!"...Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Do!

Data's "Ode to Spot" in TNG's Schisms

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.
I had to read through that whole thing before I even realized that it rhymed.

@ArmoredSaint: I keep hearing Jack Black's name suggested to play Mudd in an Abramsverse film. I'm not sure that's a good idea. I don't think he could act a scene like that!

I'd rather see Mike Myers as NuMudd than Jack Black.

Jack Black as Mudd?

Mike Myers has indeed the appropriate style. They would only have to mix is make-up of Inglorious Bastard with Fat Bastard's. Of course, it would make a Mudd who drops a lot of puns about Vulcan hears or Klingon foreheads.

I love this too, may favorite part is:

Mudd: They've got no sense of humor, they arrested me!
McCoy: Oh, I find that shocking.
Mudd: Worse than that, you know what the penalty for fraud is on Deneb V?
Spock: The guilty party has his choice, death by electrocution, death by gas, death by phaser, death by hanging.

Of course Spock knows that!

That scene is comedy gold. Kirk is fumbling for words, trying to ad-lib an explanation for Spock's unusual appearance, while all the cop cares about is that he just caught two thieves red-handed. Hell, he's probably encountered weirder-looking characters than Spock in the line of duty!

There's also great lines, even from the Redshirt, in 25th anniversary on PC (of course, without the late Carmel).
