    My favorite quote is from “Miracle of Morgan’s Creek,” a great screwball comedy by Preston Sturges with Betty Hutton. If I told you what the scene was about it would make no sense so watch the movie.

    Norval Jones: W-what was his first name? Trudy Kockenlocker: You mean Ratzkywatzky? Norval Jones: N-n-naturally. Trudy Kockenlocker: Does he have to have a first name? Norval Jones: Of course he has to have a first name. Everybody has a first name. Even dogs have first names, even if they don’t have any last names. …Trudy Kockenlocker: Well, I don’t know. I had an uncle named Roscoe. Norval Jones: Roscoe, Roscoe, he eats them alive! Trudy Kockenlocker: What? Norval Jones: That – that’s a snake eater’s name. Trudy Kockenlocker: Well, it was my uncle’s name. Norval Jones: Well, how about Hugo? Trudy Kockenlocker: Oh, phooey! Norval Jones: Well, how about Otis? That was… Trudy Kockenlocker: Oh, phooey! Norval Jones: That was my father’s name. Trudy Kockenlocker: Oh, I’m sorry. Norval Jones: Well, it doesn’t matter. You can call him Montmorency for all I care. Trudy Kockenlocker: Oh, phooey! Norval Jones: Well, what goes good with Ratzkywatzky? Trudy Kockenlocker: Nothing! Norval Jones: How about Ignatz? Trudy Kockenlocker: Ignatz? You’d have to take a b-b-bicarbonite with that. Norval Jones: Ignatz Ra-ra-ratzkywatzky. That – that fits alright. Trudy Kockenlocker: Oh, phooey!

    Mr. Darcy: So what do you recommend to encourage affection? Elizabeth Bennet: Dancing. Even if one’s partner is barely tolerable. It only makes sense if you’ve seen the rest of the movie though… And yes, it’s from Pride and Prejudice of course! :)
