Raising Arizona (1987)

Okay, maybe this time somebody will find out where this comes from:

Child (in the womb):Mother, give me birth!
Mother: A child that can talk in the womb can birth itself.
Child (after birthing himself): Mother, wash me!
Mother: A child that can birth itself, can also wash itself.

Actually it was from My Cousin Vinny.
Don't know if the same thing was in two movies, though.
My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But ah my foes and oh my friends
It gives a lovely light

No, you're right.

I just pictured George Clooney saying it in overalls.

Ponder

Here's another quote to ponder:

Hey... they're just using the same actor over and over again. What kind of cut-rate project is this?

The Hangman: Even my lamented master, the great Mr. Benny himself, never had the privilege of hanging a duke. What a finale to a lifetime in the public service!
Prison Governor: Finale?
The Hangman: Yes, I intend to retire. After using the silken rope... never again be content with hemp.


--Kind Hearts and Coronets. :D

Great film.

Wonderful film KH&C 8)

Manzini: Her conversation is, perhaps, a trifle limited.
Duke: Dullest woman I ever met, but good breeding stock, and they litter a high proportion of boys.

Candidate for the blackest comedy there is (and best Ealing).
And the mere idea to have Guiness play all the victims independent of sex... :twisted:

Cars

Postby black bart on Mon Sep 18, 2006 6:16 am

OK the answer was 'CARS'...

Here's another if you like the old Black & White Classics:

Well, you see madam, it's like this. If I tap the wheel with this hammer and the wheel goes clang, then I know that the wheel's there.

Okay, it's actually Oh Mr. Porter(1937).

Maybe at last someone will even try to solve this:

Child (in the womb): Mother, give me birth!
Mother: A child that can talk in the womb can birth itself.
Child (after birthing himself): Mother, wash me!
Mother: A child that can birth itself, can also wash itself.

I cheated and tried Google, and came straight back here. Think you're going to have to tell us...
