"Meine schönen Perlen!" German side. My great-grandfather died in 1946. My grandfather's aunt stayed with the widow and the body lay in the parlor. The crowd was assembled and Tante was still upstairs, and they heard a distinct plink, plink, plink above their heads, and then this line. Her string of pearls had broken and one by one they were landing in the chamber pot. She was an American-living Nazi sympathizer, and no one approved of that.

"Mary drove her ducks to a bad market." Applachian/Ozark line. A great-grandmother (b 1858) was talking about a niece who had wed a terrible husband.

"Ahm nawt eeding that." At Thanksgiving dinner at my partner's ex-cousin-in-law's house (We are friends.) with other friends of hers, including the Down syndrome sister of her best friend.

Samantha (Sex and the City) wound up at a relationship counsellor with the boyfriend with a small dick.

After he departs in a rage, S looks at the counsellor, shrugs and says:

What can I say? I need a big dick.

Counsellor says (so dryly): I hear that.

I say I hear that, dryly, all the time.

Yes Maggie Smith is very funny in that. I love one of her other lines:

Can't you pay me one bloody compliment? I've spent 3 HOURS dressing for this horseshit affair!

by Anonymousreply 271September 15, 2023 1:13 AM

Oh just checked and the line is supposed to be:

Will you please be nice to me and pay me one bloody compliment. I've been getting ready for this horseshit affair for *three hours!*

“But Wanda! It’s 5,000 dollars!”

As kids, my brothers and I would repeat this line, with our version of a Russian accent. It was from some old B&W movie on a UHF channel. To this day, we have no idea what movie it was. It might have been Peter Lorre saying the line, with some old harridan screaming back, “I don’t care!"

Worked with many fellow gays. Whenever we would get pissed off or frustrated with the bureaucracy of our firm we'd blurt out:

"I'm on the Board of Directors..."

never saying out loud the full line ' OF THIS LOUSY COMPANY!!"

Of course we all knew the full line and smiled. Our straight bosses were clueless.

R284 and the actual movie’s title is “The Friends of Eddie Coyle.”

I shan’t “Oh, dear” you as it’s based on one of my favorite novels and Mitchum’s pretty great as Eddie.

When we can’t make up our minds about something: the line of an increasingly vehement gay Soviet circa 1953 decorator prepping the bier for the display of Stalin’s coffin after his death to Georgy Malenkov, Stalin’s designated successor (Jeffrey Tambor). He’s trying to get Malenkov (a ditherer) to make up his mind as to whether it’s to be draped with a gathered fabric or one the falls straight to the floor.

“Ruched” holding up one piece of fabric, “or not ruched,” holding up another. And so on three or four times: “Ruched or not ruched.”

Party Guest: There is this devastating satirical piece on that on the Op Ed page of the Times, it is devastating.

Isaac Davis: Well, a satirical piece in the Times is one thing, but bricks and baseball bats really gets right to the point.
