OK thought of a comedy moment. I'm thinking of this in terms of the dialogue, the performances, the direction and editing (v.important the editing), for me everything comes together in this scene. I have one word.....BAFTA.
The Tekken 2 battle/argument scene from Ends (anything in bold text represents a cut to Tekken 2):
Tim: I'm going to pick up Mike from the T.A.
Daisy: Yeah alright, wha.. what time are you meeting Sarah?
T: Will you get off my back!
D: I'm not on your back
T: You are, I-you-I-you-I can feel you, you're there like Jabba's little mate going "yahaha haha". Why can't you just wish me luck and say, "Have a good time."?
D: I'm not a hypocrite Tim, I'm not gonna wish you luck with something I think could be bad for you.
T: Well can't you pretend?
T: You just don't want me to move out do you.
T: You don't want me to move out.
D: Is that what you think this is about?
T: Well I..
D: You conceited little shit! Nina Williams side kicks Paul Phoenix
Don't you dare flatter yourself to think that I would stand in your way for my own ends. Another side kick from Nina
For your information I would
be sad if you moved out, but it isn't about me
. Nina throws Paul to the floor and punches him in the face
I'm your friend, and friends are supposed to look out for each other... and I think you're making a mistake, and if you're too stupid to see that, then someone... a friend... me... should point it out to you. Nina tosses Paul over her shoulder
T: Well OK, while were being friends
, maybe I should be a friend
to you, and point out to you, that you're just using my personal problems as another in a long line of excuses not to get out your bloody typewriter and do some work! Paul punches Nina in the head
D: I am not
! Nina sweep kicks Paul
T: Oh right OK, oh well, ooh let's have a party Paul jabs Nina
, ooh let's do some theatre Paul jabs Nina
, ooh let's get a dog Paul kicks Nina in the head
, ooh let's spend hours in front of our bedroom mirror BOGLING TO ASWAD! Paul throws Nina over his head
D: That was research!
T: Well just keep telling yourself that Daisy OK, but I think I am big enough and ugly enough to make my own mistakes!
D: Well Sarah obviously
does. Nina kicks Paul in the head and KOs him, followed by another kick to the head and a final sweep kick for good measure
>Tim looks hurt and turns to leave.
>Nina Williams performs her winning pose with a sweep of the arm.
Daisy (mimicking Nina's winning pose): "Ha haha, ha haha, ha haha."
Admittedly this does lose a lot in text only format (not sure it was worth typing it all out), but this is one of those scenes that I have (literally) watched a hundred times and it never fails to make me laugh.
Simon, Jessica, Edgar, I salute you.
S1 E1- When they're testing each other, " You've got a friend called Mike who's a weapons expert" cut to mike shooting a cat with a slingshot, Yes!
S1 E2-After Tim's dream of being attacked by his alien costume "You son of a bitch!"
S1 E3-OH, Brian, you came. No I just spilled my drink
S2 E2-Are you sure you haven't been on holiday? How was Saigon? I speak no Vietnamise, English only!Bastard!
S2 E5-Now I get to go and run around in the dark with a gun and youve got to stay here and be good for uncle Mike, so get comfy because you my friend are going nowhere....Oh Bollocks.
