I actually really liked Clerks, although I wouldn't go so far as to label it as a masterpiece. It's definitely more than a bit self-indulgent and littered with "oh look how clever I am" dialogue. However, there's a scene where Dante and Randall go to a funeral and come running out a few minutes later to jump in their car and speed off. After a beat, Randall says to Dante, "I can't believe you knocked over the coffin." I still laugh when I think about it.
