In "The other guys", Allen says:

Anything you say or do can be used as a floatation device.

What's funny about it?

  • Depends on the execution of dialogue but still bit unclear to me or might be because i didn’t watched the film.

Allen Gamble (Ferrell) forgets how the Miranda Rights speech goes, so his partner (Wahlberg) jokingly makes him finish the sentence with a bit from another familiar speech: the saftey speech in airplanes that at one point tells you that certain things around you could be used as a floatation device. Thus, he's making Allen sound like a flight attendant rather than a cop.
