Day 13 - Your favorite funny scene

Damon/Alaric and Damon/Elena - Who killed who? and Puppies (Season 01, Episode 20, "Blood Brothers")

I originally grabbed this scene because of the "You tried to kill me/Yeah, well, you did kill me" Damon/Alaric exchange, but then realized this is funny scene, not just funny exchange and thought I'd have to figure out something else. Which, again, not very easy with this show because despite numerous funny quips (courtesy mostly of -- thank you -- Damon), there aren't really very many full on funny scenes. However, I decided to watch the the whole thing and minus the end part with John -- which plays more like a new scene because it's not connected to the phone call with Damon -- there are a lot of funny, heehee! moments to be found here, so I thought: Yup, this one works!


First we have the first lines that establish that lovely, teasingly insulting banter between Damon and Alaric --

Damon: Hello?
Alaric: Hey, it's Alaric Saltzman.
Damon: Before I hang up, how did you get this number?
Alaric: It's a mystery

This was then followed by blah, blah, plot stuffies before we get to my favorite part:


Then we got some more funnies when Damon got another call (from Elena!). I always get a little laugh out of how Damon pulls the phone away to check the caller ID, and then says "Hold on" into the phone without putting it back to his ear, followed by his flat, mock-annoyed "What?" which is very amusing knowing that he knows it's Elena since he checked out the caller ID. Hee! And that phone conversation begins with a typical Damon one-liner ...

Elena: How's Stefan?
Damon: Exra broody.

before we get to the second best part of the scene:

Elena: What's his favorite kind of ...
Damon: Favorite kind of what?
Elena: Type of animal blood that he prefers?
Damon: Eeew, gross.

And then after some more exposition, the kicker --

Damon: Stefan likes puppy blood. Little golden retriever puppies with cute, floppy ears. That's his favorite.

Oh, Damon. Hah! Yeah, this scene cracks me up.

Great choice. I totally see the difference between squee and funny scene. I agree that TVD has lots of witty exchanges but not so many entire scenes that are funny.

Continuing the amusing Damon and Elena conversation:

Elena: Your joking doesn't help
Damon: It helps me. Hurry up. I can't babysit all night. I have things to do.
Elena: I would say drop dead but ...

This is not as funny as the puppy line, but still notable IMO.

Nice formatting on your post - especially the split screen image of Damon and Alaric.

Yeah, squee and funny are not the same thing, but they're both still delightful.

I was gonna include that exchange, but I figured I'd leave something for the vid watcherse, LOL!

Nice formatting on your post - especially the split screen image of Damon and Alaric.

Thank you, and that came about because I originally was just going to use a single image for each section, but then I couldn't resist clipping the actual scenes. However, how I decided to write this one up, I realized, AHA!, I can use my Damon/Alaric split-screen image. :)

The golden retriever blood! Hilarous scene. Good pick!

Hee! His old puppy thing just cracked me up. "Cute floppy ears." Hah!
sassy, classy, and a bit smart-assy: TVD: Alaric couldn't carebadboy_fangirl on January 2nd, 2011 11:51 pm (UTC)
I've always enjoyed this scene immensely, but it only got funnier when I found this on Tumblr:

You are familiar with the movie Mean Girls, right?

Great choice. The whole scene is just brilliant.

Oh, yeah, I've seen this around all over the place and it never fails to crack me up. Especially because their facial expressions fit SO perfectly. Hah!

followed by his flat, mock-annoyed "What?"

Love that. It's how I answer the phone when my husband calls, if he calls when he's on some silly errand. (yay for D/E domesticity ;p )

Also love Ian's delivery on "Isabelle's in [name of city]" -- not like he's surprised, but like she lives in a slum or something. Like "WTF is Isabelle doing in a place like that?" :p

My favorite funny scene is Damon/Vicki/Stefan ("I'm not taking her to Disney Land, we're just going out to the yard" [or something]). And then Vicki running away. But given your least favorite character (and the D/E awesomeness of this scene), I totally understand your choice. :D

I know!! Hee!

Ian's delivery is always SO on-key. Love him to bit.

My favorite funny scene is Damon/Vicki/Stefan ("I'm not taking her to Disney Land, we're just going out to the yard" [or something]).

That's a funny scene too. Good choice.

LOL this scene is GOLD!!
haha I also love the part when he crunches his nose at the end as he says "that's his favorite," something about that gesture makes me giggle and swoon hehe =P

Hee! I know. He's hysterical. Ian has great comic timing! :D

Yeah, this scene was great!

I think my favorite bit is the exchange between Damon and Alaric. It's super funny to me because it's so bizarre that Alaric is calling Damon to go on a little road trip with him. I love it when Damon says, "before I hang up, how did you get my number?" =D
Arabian: Damon&Alaric01arabian on January 11th, 2011 01:17 pm (UTC)
I know; Alaric has warm fuzzy feelings for Damon and he doesn't even quite realize yet. And Damon didn't hang up because he does too! AWWW! :)dad
