Us Pixar fans spend a lot of time talking about Pixar Moments that hit us emotionally because of course, Pixar is really good at this. But they're also really good at making us laugh. I'm curious to hear some of your thoughts on the scenes/lines/gags in Pixar movies that really made you laugh hard, and still get you every time.
There are two moments that come immediately to mind and still crack me up every time:
1) Screamcan design class in Monsters University. After Mike and Sully have been switched out of the Scaring Program after failing the first semester. Professor Brandywire says, in a monotone, deadpan delivery: "Some say that a career as a scream can designer is boring, unchallenging, a waste of a monster's potential." PAUSE "Open your text books to chapter 3...".
2) The "HONEY, where is my supersuit?!" banter between Frozone and his wife in The Incredibles still cracks me up every time. I think the same could be said for this scene too.
One thing I have observed that both of these moments have in common is that they both support the emotional steaks in the context of their movie. I think a lot of comedic relief gags in movies seem to try and "give audiences a break" from the heavy emotional stuff going on. These scenes on the other hand, actually further drive in what the characters are going through while giving us the chance to laugh. In MU, we get to feel the dissapointment and anger that Mike and Sully are dealing with and in The Incredibles just as the movie is getting to it's nailbitting Climax, we feel anxious and frustrated along with Frozone as he can't find his Supersuit and his wife won't tell him where it is.
