From “Eww David” to Moira’s pronunciation of “Baby”, here are 10 extremely funny ‘Schitt’s Creek’ scenes that will convince you to re-watch the show immediately!
Created by Canadian father-son duo Eugene and Dan Levy, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ has made a name for itself as the comedy show of the year. The story follows a rich family that are defrauded by their manager and lose everything but a town they once bought as a joke. They move to ‘Schitt’s Creek’ and start living in a motel, and befriend people they usually wouldn’t even speak to. Starring Eugene Levy (Johnny), Dan Levy (David), Catherine O’Hara (Moira), and Annie Murphy (Alexis), Schitt’s Creek has some of the funniest television comments ever.
Schitt’s Creek is undoubtedly one of the funniest shows on TV
- Moira and David make enchiladas!
- When Moira pronounced “baby” in her unrecognisable accent.
- When Johnny and Moira dress up to look impoverished
We decided to recap the show and present to you some of the funniest scenarios that have ensued. From Alexis saying “Eww David” to Moira’s uncanny pronunciation of “Baby”, here are 10 ridiculously funny ‘Schitt’s Creek’ scenes!
1) When Johnny saw the town’s obscene sign
Johnny, hell-bent on selling the town, realises that the town sign could be a reason behind his inability to sell the town. Johnny tries to reason with the town’s residents, but none of them understand him. Roland gets offended, completely unaware that the sign depicts his ancestors (who are siblings) in a very risque position. Roland and Johnny then resort to bickering about the sign, which is simply put, hilarious!
2) When Moira and David made enchiladas!
Fans of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ will never forget the time Moira and David made enchiladas in Jocelyn’s kitchen! From their arguments over what “fold in the cheese” meant, to Moira’s ignorance and reluctance to admit it, this scene is pure gold. Don’t even get us started on David’s flabbergasted facial expressions, which are simply unforgettable.
3) The time Moira slapped Roland
Early on, in the first season, Johnny needed Roland aka the mayor’s signature so he could sell the town. Roland’s attempts to delay the event continue at a dinner hosted by his wife, where, as expected, he behaves absurdly. Eventually, Roland informs Moira that he’s a big fan of the soap opera she starred in.
Moira once played the role of Vivian Blake in ‘Sunrise Bay’, where her character was known for slapping people. In order to sign the papers, Roland asks Moira to slap him. After her consistent refusal to do so, Moira, exasperated, slaps Roland across his face!
4) When Moira pronounced “baby” in her unrecognisable accent
Moira’s over-the-top, theatric persona is accompanied by her indistinguishable accent. In season four, she left viewers howling with her pronunciation of a simple word like “baby”. It seems that Catherine O’Hara did this to make the crew laugh, but it turned into an iconic moment for her character!
5) When Alexis forgets to tell her family about David’s whereabouts
One of the funniest ‘Schitt’s Creek‘ moments transpires when Alexis forgets to tell her family about David’s whereabouts. After the family’s plan of leaving the town miserably fails, David runs away and ends up staying with an Amish family. He texts Alexis, who is ignorant of the information, and only realises this when they accidentally find David.
6) When Moira got drunk while filming the fruit wine commercial
The Herb Ertlinger Winery, a local fruit wine company, asks Moira to star in a few commercials for them.
Moira doesn’t like the wine but happily obliges, hoping it could be a way to restart her acting career. She eventually loses her confidence and acting abilities, but an encouraging Johnny stays by her side. Moira Rose, then completely drunk, nails the commercial, leaving us in a laughter riot.
7) Every time Alexis screamed “Eww David”
We’ve never been able to understand why this moment is so hilarious. Annie Murphy popularised the iconic phrase, and every time she said, “Eww David”, it’s just too funny for words. It’s one of the most quotable lines from the show in all six seasons!
8) When Alexis narrated wild stories of her misadventures
Everyone who has watched ‘Schitt’s Creek’ knows that Alexis has had quite a wildlife. Every time she narrates what happened to her, it is a moment of pure comedy. Some of our favourite Alexis misadventures include her being abducted by Somali pirates, and the time she dated a Saudi Prince.
9) When Johnny and Moira dress up to look impoverished
Say hello to the funniest ‘Schitt’s Creek’ scene of all time! In the third season, Johnny and Moira borrow clothes from Roland and Jocelyn to look impoverished, so they can get a cheap car deal. Moira uses her accent to avoid being recognised at the store, but things don’t go as expected.
She narrates a story about being a twin who was snatched away by Russian mobsters, the plotline of her character on Sunrise Bay. Their cover is blown as the owners recognise Moira and the disappointment on Johnny’s face is outright hysterical. What is your favourite ‘Schitt’s Creek’ moment? Let us know in the comments!
