Fred C. Dobbs: Why am I elected to go to the village? Why me instead of you and Curtin? Oh, don't think I don't see through that. You two've thrown in against me. The two days I'd be gone would give you plenty of time to discover where my goods are, wouldn't it?

Those of you who find this funny obviously have never yourselves had a hernia operation.............I'm no big fan of the Marx Brothers, but the first line that occurred to me was:

 

                                   Margaret Dumont (dancing with Groucho): Come closer,...closer

                                    Groucho: If I got any closer, I'd be behind you.

When I was a kid, and first heard the Scarecrow  in THE WIZARD OF OZ say, "Some people without brains do an AWFUL lot of talking.", I wondered when was it he ever met my brother!

 

I'd kid him about that over the years, but I had nothin' but LOVE for him!
