Hello Everyone,


I always smile whenever I see a clip of Mae West in "I'm No Angel" as she undulates onstage at the beginning of the movie in a diaphonous dress and then looks at the men in the audience and asks, "How my doin??"........


And, my favourite quote is of Mary Astor in "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" as she meets Olivia DeHavilland on the courthouse steps -- "I have no more time for you, not even one more minute!".....

I've actually used that a couple of times in my life.

The Long Long Trailer:

Nicky and Tacey are cruising along with their "40 feet of train" behind them. Nicky tells Tacey to check the map cuz a turn is coming up somewhere.

Tacey shouts-"Turn right here!!". Nicky makes a sharp turn off onto a dirt road.

Tacey-"No no no!I didn't say turn here!"

Nicky-" You told me to turn right here- and I turned right!"

Tacey-" You didn't let me finish. What I was about to say was turn right here left!"

You can just imagine Nicky with the Ricky Ricardo "Aye yi yi" look on his face.

slappy, I didn't realize until I saw your post on another thread that this must have been your 1,000th post to these TCM boards! Since we started here about the same time a couple of years ago, like bggalaxy for whom I just posted a similar message, I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS! Sorry for the belated congrats (since it was a week ago now). I always enjoy your witty contributions!

Slappy, I do hope that at least one of your hilarious 3 Stooges lines make the AFIs Top 100 list of Movie Quotes this coming Tuesday on CBS.

I have a feeling that quotes from "Casablanca" are going to be prominent.

Mongo, I'll be amazed if they do. The Stooges get no respect except from their fans. The reason I've posted a few of their one-liners is to show they are more than eye-gouging buffoons. Here's a couple more. Larry: "I'll take two rotten eggs and some burnt toast". Waiter: "Why would anyone want that?" Larry: "I've got a tape worm and that's good enough for him." Shemp: "I'm Baron of Grey Matter." Moe always claimed that Paris was on the INseine river and he wanted to go their to see "the Parasites."

Those Stooge lines are hilarious, encore! encore! :) Here's one subtle one I caught yesterday in Fools For Scandal. Ralph Bellamy to Carole Lombard, shouting;" You'd better give me an answer tonight or else! " Carole: " Or else what?!" Ralph; " Or else, tomorrow! "

I've always thought Moe Howard's parodys of Hitler compared favorably with Chaplin's. Moe is impersonating Hitler, spewing psuedo-German in a towering rage, when his fake mustache flies off and lands on a Nazi. He reaches over and retrieves it, speaking in his regular voice: "Hey Buddy; couldja let me have my personality back?" and resumes his tirade. Shemp to tough guy: "Them's FIGHTIN' words in MY country!" Tough guy: "Well???" ..."Well we're not in my country." Larry in an old west saloon orders a glass of milk. When the bartender and other patrons smirk at him he snarls: "And put it in a dirty glass!!!" as Moe and Curley pat him on the back. Larry to Moe in a haunted castle "I'm not scared. I'm merely aprehensive." Moe: what's 'aprehensive'?" Larry: "That's scared with a college education."

Ha slappy- good one. I love the one from "Design For Living" where Miriam Hopkins and her men, Cooper and March, promised to stay platonic so there would be no quarrels, and swore they had a gentlemen's agreement. But alas while Cooper and she are alone it is so sexually charged, and she falls back, swooned-like on the couch with her hand over her face, and says" I know, we made a gentlemen's agreement, but I am NO gentlman!" and , well, ya know.....gosh she was sexy.:)

I also like the line from "On the Waterfront" - "I coulda been a contedah"....


I love the Bette Davis line - "fasten your seatbelts, we're in for a bumpy night".
