You don't have much of a sense of humor about your superhero movies do you? The action was done (for now) and they wanted a breather in between this and the next action setpiece. Technically speaking they had to resolve before the credits rolled that Pepper somehow finds out he was dying. But most importantly, it was funny. And not in a lame way that you laugh at the movie. But a LOL moment that had my entire audience going. It reminds me a bit of the reveal that Cary Grant is going nuts at the end of Frank Capra's wonderful Arsenic and Old Lace and his wife gets upset but he drags her off to their honeymoon before she can complain.

Oddball comedy+Robert Downey Jr+Jon Favreau=win.
