For me, 3 in particular stand out.

The first being how the Mk4444 units literally "goose-step" into Paris the same way the Nazis did after the surrender of France in World War 2.

The second being the way the Black Moon just casually bulldozes Mount Fuji on it's way to Calvary Base. It wasn't enough to completely upstage one of the most famous symbols of Japan, equivalent to the Statue of Liberty for America by just completely dwarfing it in scale at the end of 3.33, NEWP! Lets drag it along and slowly grind it to rubble all across Japan!

Third is a minor one, but Rei's embarassment at wearing her classic dress from NGE was a cute callback that really made me chuckle.

How about you peeps? Any moments stand out personally as amusing for you?

Toji talking in his sleep made me laugh more than it should have.
I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

I know the opening sequence has been around for ages now but Maya being like "Sit yo ass down" to Midori and it *instantly* cutting to her doing just that is still funny.

The hilariously unnecessary full naked fanservice shot of Mari when they are suiting up.

Hikari going "sssshhhh" to the misbehaving boys when the booze arrives. You can take the class rep out of school...

Rei-Q hanging out with the Ghibli Grannies.

Asuka tazing Shinji square in the face.

Gendo rising up in the the air gives me flashbacks to those Schick adverts

...immediately followed by Sakura bitch-slapping him nonetheless!

Also, Rei-Q squeezing her own sorry excuse of boobs when she sees Hikari breastfeeding.

Oh and Mari's right-the-balls-out-of-nowhere Engrish "by da weeeeey" when she asks Asuka about seeing Shinij.

Unintentional but Mari's weird stare while she almost fanwanks the whole Gaius explanation cracks me up.

I really enjoyed the Gilligan Cut from Gendo telling Shinji to hand over Eva 01 if he ever wants to see his mother again, to Eva 01's docking station pulling away as Shinji starts it up. Gendo's deadpan "This is why I dislike children" made me laugh.

I loved the "imaginary" fight between Shinji and Gendo taking place in different iconic locations. If anything, I wished they went farther with it. Shinji and Gendo fighting in the aquarium! Shinji and Gendo fighting on top of a full-sized Eva's helmet while that Eva fights an Angel!

I also thought Shinji colliding into the "sky wall" was a great reference to all the walls Toho has turned into skies

Oddly enough, the first thing I thought of was The Truman Show, where he tries to sail away from his fake constructed world and the boat suddenly hits the wall and he realizes that he's just found the edge of the TV show's set.

Two things stuck out at me the most: Rei's goofy granny outfit and Gendo scooping up a bit of brain and putting it back in his head.

I laughed in a decent number of occasions. The highlights are: Asuka tasing Shinji, Ayanami going to the library and Gendo casually responding to Ritsuko's shot.

That's a good one too! I wonder how popular that film is in Japan. Anno seems like the type who might be aware of it.

Thought of another one - the harmonica solo towards the end of "Voyager". It sounds great but it sounds like Shirō Sagisu suddenly decided he was composing the end credits music for an 80s sitcom.

Shinji getting hit with the wave and smiling at the end got me. We've never really had a beach episode in Eva and seeing that "regular" thing happen was kind of cute. Toji sleep talking too.

For some reason I thought it was funny about Gendo taking a piece of his brain and putting it back in his head. I also thought the slap that Sakura gives Shinji and Asuka's comment about it afterwards was funny.

Rei Q cupping her boobs when watching Tsubame breastfeed takes gold for me, with one of the village grannies commenting "You should marry my son" to Rei Q when she puts on the old middle school outfit coming in with a silver. The scene where Sakura slaps Shinji and Asuka dryly remarks, "Are you his wife now?" takes bronze.

An honorable mention goes to any time Mari says something in another language.

Funny yes. But easily Asuka at her most petty. But aside from that there wasn't really that much comedy in this movie when compared to the first two or even the one moment in 3.33.

I don't think that was so petty. It seems Asuka really should carry an unconscious Shinji to the Wunder.

That seems to make WILLE more receptive.
