Over the top poverty ridden musicals. Like Annie. Comics from the depression.

Dude was reading The Comic in a movie based on comics

There’s going to be a fight…the bar patrons know it. They are locking stuff up!

What a great Father’s day pick

I said phooey and I mean phooey

This was Robin Williams first film.

No room for a racetrack on your bay city…no problem…we has fakey horses. House of Repukes.

Get a Venereal Disease.

I ought to bust you right in the mush.

I ain’t no physicists..but I know what matters….I ain’t a doctor but I’m losing my patience.

Ripped straight from the comic page. You can’t be married and you can’t have kids. So you find a baby and pseudo date your border’s daughter.

You can’t get a PG rated  movie while saying stuff like…eat it raw!

Haul Ass….Haul Ass….Haul Ass

Like punching an octypussy under water…it looks stupid and awesome all at the same time. Now excuse me while I sing a song.

How hard is it to sing in a popeye voice

Best most upbeat ending ever. This should have been the whole movie
