Funniest Movie Scenes I've Ever Seen

This subject came up at work, and I thought I'd introduce it on the Affect.

What's the funniest scene you've ever watched in a movie. To kickstart the topic, I'll offer some of my favorites in no particular order:

Blazing Saddles... welcoming in the new sheriff. "We extend a laurel and hardy handshake to our new...nigger."

Something About Mary...Ben Stiller fighting with the dog.

Happy Gilmore...Happy and Bob Barker fighting on the golf course in a Pro/Am.

Airplane...A line forming to slap a woman who has gone into hysterics.

Caddyshack...Danny and Ty discussing lumberyards, college and life while Danny caddies.

Here are a few of mine.

Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls... Ace getting two spears in each of his thighs.

Kung Fu Hustle... the knife throwing scene and later the scene in which the big boss' hair catches on fire.

Shaun of the Dead... the choreographed beating of the bar owner to a Queen song.

Napoleon Dynamite... the pinata scene, Uncle Rico's van getting hit by a grapefruit, "Back in high school I could throw a football a quarter mile." It's pretty much the funniest movie ever made.

All of Anchorman:The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

You've jogged the memory a bit:

Napoleon Dynamite...Uncle Rico throws a steak and hits Napoleon in the face.

Shaun of the Dead...planning to pick up his ex-girlfriend and mother, and killing his step-dad. (the toast at the end of each scenario is hilarious.)

Baseketball...Little Joey in the hospital is depressed. Coop asks what's wrong;
Joey says, "I'm going to die."
Coop: "Well we're all going to die dude."
Joey: "Yeah, but not this week!"

How could you guys leave out office space? (Props for ND, Shaun of the Dead, and Baseketball, though).
