I checked to see if it has been done, and was suprised it wasn't!  Does anyone here like the marx brothers?  They always use to crack me up!  laff

I wish I was Groucho.  That guy is amazing.  A Day At the Races still blows my mind.

I love Marx Brothers. "A Day At The Races" is a great movie, but my favorite is probably "Duck Soup".

A few from an old movie quote thread:

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."

Rufus T. Firefly: "I'd be unworthy of the high trust that's been placed in me if I didn't do everything in my power to keep our beloved Freedonia in peace with the world. I'd be only too happy to meet with Ambassador Trentino, and offer him on behalf of my country the right hand of good fellowship. And I feel sure he will accept this gesture in the spirit of which it is offered. But suppose he doesn't. A fine thing that'll be. I hold out my hand and he refuses to accept. That'll add a lot to my prestige, won't it? Me, the head of a country, snubbed by a forgein ambassador. Who does he think he is, that he can come here, and make a sap of me in front of all my people? Think of it - I hold out my hand and that hyena refuses to accept. Why, the cheap ball-pushing swine, he'll never get away with it I tell you, he'll never get away with it!" (Trentino enters) "So, you refuse to shake hands with me, eh?"
(slaps Trentino with his glove)

Rufus T. Firefly: "Dig trenches, with our men being killed off like flies? There isn't time to dig trenches. We'll have to buy them ready made. Here, run out and get some trenches. Wait a minute, get them this high (gestures to his chin) and our soldiers won't need any pants. Wait a minute, get them this high (gestures over his head) and we won't need any soldiers.

I love the Marx Brothers.  My personal favorite is A Night at the Opera, followed closely by Duck Soup. 

Groucho:  "On with the opera, let joy be unconfined.  Let there be dancing in the streets, drinking in the saloons, and necking in the parlor."

1000 dollers a night?  What does he do?

What does he do? He sings!

And you pay him that much just for singing?  Why, you can get a phonograph record of "minnie the moocher" for 75 cents.  For a buck and a quarter you can get minnie!

The only Marx brothers movie I've seen all the way through was A Night at the Opera.  It's good, really freakin hilarious, but what's with all the songs?

"What do you think you're doing, holding up that building?"

Love the Marx Brothers, saw a few several years ago.  Haven't seen them in so long, but they were gold.
