Mr. Harcourt: "Here... take a trolley down to the Potomac and jump in. Maybe the cold water will clear your head!"
Okay, it may not seem funny at first glance, but that's because it's an inside joke. I've been swimming, kayaking, white-water rafting, and canoeing in the Potomac countless times (NOT in the falls)...
And once, when I went with my brothers, I accidentally slipped off a rock while I was jumping into the water (they've got these nice cliffs you can dive off of, just wear a helmet for heaven's sake...).
I sort of belly-flopped into the water, and when I came back up, I squirted a bunch of water out my nose! My brothers cracked up, and then the older of the two said, "Hey Jimbo, did that clear your head yet?"
Everyone got the reference, and we still can't help but crack up every time we watch that movie.
Oh yeah... Everything Packard says is lol-worthy.
Packard: "To whoever took the 'L' from the 'Motor Pool' sign, ha-ha. We are all very amused."

Slartibartfast: "You must come with me." Arthur Dent: "Who are you?" Slartibartfast: "What? No. My name's not important. You must come with me, or you'll be late." Arthur Dent: "Late for what?" Slartibartfast: "Well, um, what's your name Earthman?" Arthur Dent: "Dent. Arthur Dent." Slartibartfast: "Well, late as in *the late* Dentarthurdent. It's a sort of threat. You see?" Arthur Dent: "No."
