For a guy who could make some of the most violent, gritty or saddest scenes in movie history, some scenes made me laugh my ass off and rewind it over and over again, and sometimes I don't even think they were intentionally funny.

-The scene where one of Cheyenne's(Or is it Frank's?) men squishes the guy's nose during the auction in the salloon.
-The horse mouthing Clint's lines when Manco and Mortimer meet up before the Col. gives Manco the scar
-The old man in FFDM who bends his chin(!!!)

And of course almost everything Tuco says when Blondie first turns him in ;D

Agree, for films with so much violence there are a lot of very funny moments.  For me, these include:

When ya gotta shoot, shoot, don't talk !

Id-id.  Idiots. (huh?) It's for you.

I generally smoke just after I eat - why don't you come back in about ten minutes?

You brought two too many...

Lots of other Tuco stuff; remember, not so easy to be so comic, but still also come across as threatening, which Wallach pulled off.  This was a really masterful performance.

i think leone's secret is his wide range of emotions i think we can attribute this partly to the actors and also vincenzoni who is known to have loved adding dark humour


Dave Jenkins, Calder Benson, Jim Cooper, Chuck Youngblood. They were all alive until they met you, Frank.

Has to be Tuco's rant. "arr.. one B@$!@£d goes in and another comes out."

For some reason.. Don't ask me why. 

Few Dollars.
Monco messing up that guys fried eggs at the telegraph station:
Our Bounty Killer ties up the poor bloke, and then amuses himself by braking up the yokes on the little hot-plate, whipes his paw on his poncho and scarpers.  ;D

All of the above plus the sequence in the desert where Tuco has a "golden" change of heart with Blondie.

That is a great line. ;D

The old man in For a Few Dollars More is very funny too. I like the scene in the old man's place between him and Eastwood. It ends with Eastwood getting up and telling him that he wouldn't want the old man to go losing his temper.

Agreed.  My favourite is in the monastry.  "It's all my fault; mine, mine, mine!" (then peeps through fingers to see if he got a reaction)

 8) well, Tuco again...! come to think of it, except for his character there aren't many humorous characters in Leone's films. one scene that always makes me laugh out loud is Tuco's 'switch' when he realises that he must keep Blondie alive "Blondie... I'm your friend! Don't die like that pig!"

All the quote's so far are classics. And yes i'm going to add another tuco one!

 When he leaves the monastry and he gets on the carriage with blondie:

 "My brother he loves me! He never wants me to leave..."

 Blondie's face is priceless!

 Tuco is easily the funniest character in any Leone movie, Eli Wallach is brilliant, and he's still making movies, what a legend!

Or, from OUATITW, I've always liked this exchange between Harmonica and Cheyenne:

Harmonica: Well, you know music.  And you can count - all the way up to two!
Cheyenne: All the way up to SIX if I have to - and maybe faster than you.

Can I have another go??

I like the bit in FODy when Juan views Sean with a cartoony banner stating 'Banco Nationale' or something around him.  Coupled with the music accompanying it makes a funny EUREKA! moment.
