G is For... Groucho Marx
So I thought that for the letter 'G' I would present you with some of my favourite Groucho Marx film quotes.
Is it true that you are getting a divorce as soon as your husband regains his eyesight?
Groucho, Monkey Business (1931)
*Talking to Tony (Chico) who is in disguise*
Don't talk so loud your moustache will fall off.
Dr Hugo Z. Hackenbush, A Day At The Races (1937)
*After Tomasso (Harpo), who is in disguise, has been asked to make a speech*
How much will you give me to set fire to your beard?
Otis B. Driftwood, A Night At The Opera (1935)
Rufus T. Firefly: Not that I care, but where is your husband?
Mrs Teasdale: Why, he's dead.
Rufus T. Firefly: I bet he's just using that as an excuse.
Mrs Teasdale: I was with him to the very end.
Rufus T. Firefly: No wonder he passed away.
Mrs Teasdale: I held him in my arms and kissed him.
Rufus T. Firefly: Oh, I see, then it was murder. Will you marry me? Did he leave you any money? Answer the second question first.
Duck Soup (1933)
Martha Phelps: Tell me, Wolfie dear, will we have a beautiful home?
Wolf J. Flywheel: Of course. You're not planning on moving are you?
The Big Store (1941)
