sounds like a line from a vintage movie, but it's from *Body Heat* (1981) -- Matty (Kathleen Turner) says it to Ned (William Hurt)

 

new one:

 

"You're short on ears and long on mouth!"

Well, that one's just sitting here, so - it's from *Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas*, Johnny Depp as Hunter S. Thompson -

 

I've always liked this one, probably more familiar:

 

"I'm sorry I ever sent her to that finishing school, I think they finished her there."

Actually it's from *To Catch a Thief*...

 

Jessie Royce Landis (as Jessie Stevens) is talking to Cary Grant (John Robie) about her daughter (played by Grace Kelly). Grant has just commented that the daughter is nice, and Royce Landis responds that maybe she's too nice and goes on with the remark about the finishing school.

Here's a new one from an old movie I had never seen until I happened onto it quite by accident a few years ago. It's now one of my favorites...

 

"Well, well, let's ring bells! Let's send up skyrockets! . . . Well, let's turn on all the lights in the house."

That's from *Holiday*, Katharine Hepburn as Linda Seton, I believe.

I think I saw this (on TV) before *Bringing Up Baby* or *The Philadelphia Story*. I liked Lew Ayres very much as Ned, the brother.

Yes, Lew Ayres is so good in *Holiday*, as is E.E. Horton -- a funny, delightful film with an underlying 'moral' to the story...

 

good work -- your thread, ladyeve

More Preston Sturges! That's from *Unfaithfully Yours* (very enjoyable film), Edgar Kennedy as Detective Sweeney.

 

I'm going to open the thread - it's bedtime for me! It's been fun...

I didn't think this would still be open when I came back, since it is:

 

Man: Why would a man leave his apartment three times on a rainy night with a suitcase and come back three times?

Woman: He likes the way his wife welcomes him home.

That's from Rear Window. Jimmy Stewart and Thelma Ritter, I believe.
