Just a thought. I really enjoyed FO2 and some of the script was amazing. Can't remember the funniest but there were some good moments. For some reason the 'lassie' reference was damned funny. I'm sure conversations with Myron was also quite entertaining.

Any moments that we may have missed? I couldn't explore all of FO3 before moving on to the later versions.

-Everything that comes out of a low intelligence Vault Dweller/Chosen One's mouth is gold. The Courier too, but sadly not all of his dialogue is changed. If I had to chose just one conversation from all these, I'd have to go with when a moronic Vault Dweller encounters Harry the super mutant. They understand each other.

-Honestly, Harry's a riot even when speaking to a smart VD. My favorite line is when he refers to "Lou Tenant", and he goes on about how he thinks he could take him on a good day.

-Dead-Eye Ricky from Honest Hearts is another great one. He's such a minor character, and yet you get a ton of (equally hilarious) ways to deal with him.

-Getting chewed out by Sergeant Dornan.

-Throwing Oliver from Hoover Dam and listening to his over-the-top, drawn out screams. That cutscene really caught me off guard the first time I did it.

-Everything that comes out of Myron's mouth is funny. And his fate is a delicious flavor of ironic dark comedy.

-[Intelligence < 3] "Ice Cream!"

-Most of Raul and Cass's dialogue, serious or not, is sprinkled with tons of sarcasm and dry wit.

-[Sneering Imperialist] "I've heard enough. Joshua, put a cap in General Gobbledigook." It's such a mercilessly dikeish thing to say that I can't help but laugh at it.

I think that New Vegas is overall the funniest game to me. OWB aside, it is like the first Fallout in that it's serious enough overall that the funny bits usually catch you by surprise, despite them being fairly numerous. Fallout 2's funny and wacky throughout, so few things really stood out to me (those that did, like Myron, were great). And 3 seems pretty much devoid of any non teddybear six-related humor. I know there were some gags in 4, but can't for the life of me think of any right now, so I guess they can't rank among the "funniest" to me.

My favourite line is the blues brothers line you can say to Myron once you recruit him.

"It's 106 miles to Arroyo, we've got a full fusion cell, half a pack of RadAway, it's midnight, and I'm wearing a 50 year old Vault 13 jumpsuit. Let's hit it."

A play on the line "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses." "Hit it."

Or when you find the enterprise crashed and dead ensign redshirts (these were the typical alien encounters, jokes. Until Bethesda made an entire dlc that beat the joke into the ground).

I like the boxer in new renos Arnold line from commando "I eat green berets for breakfast".

And of course Dave in vault 13 in fallout 2. The most unluckiest guy on the world who recounts his life story and how terrible it is. I always laugh my ass off at this dialogue.

Hm, now that brings back the memories of that boxing trainer, Mick I think. The way he comments about the player and their unimaginative SPECIAL allocation... Also the first time I saw that toilet explode in that village in the north, fallout 2. Gay marriage....
