BLAZING SADDLES: Hedley LeMar's huge band of henchman are riding across the an open plain when they are stopped by a gated toll booth. Instead of simply going around, they all stop. Slim Pickens, the leader, says, "Somebody's going to have to go back and get a shitload of dimes."

BANANAS: Howard Cosell, unscripted and done only as Howard could, provides commentary on the assasination of a South American dictator, including interviewing the dying despot. Cosell at his best, parodying himself.

Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein are all-time classics, but before either of them there was The Great Race. Most of you probably don't remember. Too bad for you....

Leslie escaped with a small friar!

Leslie escaped with a CHICKEN?!

I have a boat waiting! (Spoken by the evil baron whom Leslie is defeating in a saber duel. The Baron then throws his saber at Leslie and does a beautiful dive out the high window of the castle - landing right in the middle of the rowboat that is waiting for him, and sinking it.)

Brandy! Ha HA! Throw more brandy! (The Mad Prince, in the middle of the great pie fight.)

I HATE YOU! YOU, I HATE! ...and your suit is always white and your car is always clean...! (Professor Fate, upon realizing that Leslie really won after all.)

And, especially...PUSH THE BUTTON, MAX! (Professor Fate, many times in the movie. Each time, as soon as Max does so, the Professor's latest device self-destructs violently.)

Just about anything from the Carol Burnette Show is funny. When Tim Conway would ad-lib and crack up Harvey Korman I used to laugh til I cried. Also the spinoff, Mamma's Family when Vickie Lawrence (Mamma) used to get onto Carol Burnette's character with her trademark 'For God's sake, Eunice......'. I especially remember the one show where they were sitting in the parlor playing the board game known as Sorry. Eunice was so happy until she started losing and then all hell broke loose.

The following dialogue is from 'The Man Who Came To Dinner'

Nurse Treen: "You shouldn't eat chocolates in your condition, Mr Whiteside it's very bad for you."

Sheridan Whiteside: "I had an aunt who ate a box of chocolates every day of her life.
She lived to be a hundred and two, and when she had been dead three days,
she looked healthier than you do now."

Nurse Treen: "I am not only walking out on this case, Mr Whitside,I am leaving the nursing profession.
I became a nurse because all my life, ever since I was a little girl, I was filled with the
idea of serving a suffering humanity. After one month with you Mr Whiteside, I am going to work
in a munitions factory. From now on,anything I can do to help exterminate the human race will fill
me with the greatest of pleasure. If Florence Nightingale had ever nursed YOU, Mr Whiteside,
she would have married Jack the Ripper instead of founding the Red Cross!"

Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. ARTHUR: Be quiet!

Hey Spaw. That reminds me of a time when I was in Iran during the revolution. I was driving home at about 11:30 (way past the military curfew) and I came up to a road block. The rebels had piled tyres and logs across the road and set them on fire. I just drove around over the desert and waved to them as I went by. If they had built their road block half a mile up the road on the Karun River bridge, no one would have got past.

Madeline Kahn plays a Teutonic titwillow in Blazing Saddles. She is performing in a dance hall and sees a cowboy with his hat on his lap:
"Hello, handsome, is that a ten-gallon hat, or are you just enjoying the show?"

"ummm...Lord...what's a cubit?" Bill Cosby

also.. "Noah, how long can you tread water?"

and one of my favorites...George Gobel is commenting on the prediction of the National Safety Council about how many people will die on Labor Day weekend...(they don't do this anymore)

"Well, the prediction is that 374 people will die in traffic accidents between Friday noon and Sunday midnight. It is now Saturday night and 127 have died"............long pause, then looking into the camera with furrowed brow..."....now, some of you folks just aren't trying!"

Fletcher from Porridge ( played by the glorious Ronnie Barker ) in a cell, singing whilst preparing to shave " Born free, till somebody caught me, now I'm doing solitary........."

Here, I thought the Phantom Rasberry Blower of Old London Town was the Two Ronnies. Or did they nick it from the Goons? I deffinately saw it on the telly though.

Agree that Slow Talkers of America routine is first rate.

"I'd horsewhip you, if I had a horse." – G. Marx

In Pick Panther movie -

Sellers to Blind Man: "I thought you said your dog doesn't bite."
Blind Man: "It's not my dog."

From Dagwood cartoon; excuse punctuation – Dagwood and his boss, Mr. Smithers are at an airport ticket window. "Give me two round-trip tickets!" Smithers barks at the ticket lady. "To where?" She asks. "Well, back to here, of course!" He yells, completely disgusted.
