    I know the Bay movies get a lot of flack for juvenile / toilet humor, but I'm curious if there were jokes or bits of humor that did land for people and what those are.

    Here are a few bits I found legitimately funny:

    TF1:
    - Anthony Anderson's cousin getting tackled into the pool.
    - Optimus's "sorry, my bad" when hiding around the Witwicky house.

    ROTF:
    - Jetfire's father being a wheel, the first wheel, that transformed into nothing.
    - Agent Simmons' "ONE MAN" speech.

    DOTM:
    - Most bits involving Dutch (Alan Tudyk).

    AOE:
    - "Yeah, I went through that with Bumblebee."
    - Joyce saying "hi kids!" as he runs through Hong Kong with the Seed.
    - "You just wanna die for the guy!"

    TLK:
    - Cogman frantically calling Anthony Hopkins after Cade is tossed out a window.

    I thought the whole Witwicky house scene with Mikaela hiding was hilarious.

    The orange smoke scene, it was a little fresh to me in comparison to the jokes ROTF offered, the delivery was my favorite.

    I enjoy the comedic timing of Shia Labeouf kicking the absolute shit out of his car in DOTM

    The biggest joke was probably calling the movies "Transformers."

    I found marky mark to be genuinely funny in places during TLK, I think he'd probably picked up a few tips on delivery from MacFarlane by that time. TLK was probably the most successful comedy wise of the 5 bayverse movies. It's only achievement, and not a high bar to reach for.

    Most of the "humour" in the 5 bayverse movies is cringe bro humour that just isn't funny and written by people who clearly aren't funny. But both Shia and Marky had a few smirk worthy moments just being themselves. Probably the only "gag" from the movies that I carry with me and occasionally recycle is "it's a Cyrillic alphabet...."

    Trying to hide in alt mode on the front lawn, is quite funny.

    Juxtaposed with the scene where the robots, whose entire functional purpose is to hide in plain sight, are actually hiding just out of view of the dad in robot mode and would be obvious to anybody from any angle other than the window. Even better, when he says 'we have a blown transformer' that's actually the only time in the whole film the word 'Transformer' is used.

    Three words, three simple words on their own aren't that funny, but when put together...

    Shut. Up. Grandma.

    I have to second this. Every moment with Dutch and Simmons was pure gold.

    There's a good reason why that whole grandma house scene with the FBI conveniently breaking in was YTP gold and became a meme.

    “He went to get you a tighter shirt.”

    “There isn’t a tighter shirt, we checked!

    I loved Great Value Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in that bit.

    TF1:
    -"Sleep good, handsome man!" (pretty much that entire back and forth)

    ROTF:
    - Agent Simmons' "ONE MAN" speech.

    DOTM:
    - ALL bits involving Dutch (Alan Tudyk).

    AOE:
    - " "How do you say "get the FUCK out of the way in Chinese?!" "

    TLK:
    - Cogman's epic music scene. (That brought on genuine laughs from me and the rest of the audience.)
    -"Now, you're both on my shitlist!" (After the sub surfaces and Bumblebee flicks him into the water.)
    I have to agree that TLK was the funniest of the TF movies. Sometimes intentional, others not, but definitely funny.

    Honestly, the movies are more to be laughed at, than laughed with. Sadly.

    The one moment where Ironhide wanted to blast Sam's parents and Optimus berating him.

    That scene always makes me laugh.

    I also get a kick out of Anthony Anderson's "Don't talk to me, criminal!" from TF1.

    The first time he does it is amusing enough because it kind of goes with the tone of the scene...but it's hysterical when he does it again later inside Skids.

    I can't help to lose it everytime I see Anthony Anderson smugly nodding and smirking at the fact that he ate a dozen of donuts. I tend to mimic that same expression with my brother all the time
