  • Quotes

    • (after a particularly lousy joke, George turns to the audience)
      George Burns (as a devil) : Ladies and gentlemen, in spite of that last line, I want you to know that Gracie and I are still going to have a very funny show tomorrow night. Don't miss it.

    • Jack: Oh yeah? What makes you devils so sure you're going to get all my money?
      George Burns (as a devil): Because we know you're going to find some way to take it with you, and with that load you couldn't possibly go up.

    • (visiting backstage)
      Spike: I only came back to prove to myself you were here. When I looked up at the marquee and saw "Jack Benny-Violin Soloist," I just couldn't believe my eyes.
      Jack: Well, it surprised a lot of people.
      Rochester: The man who put the sign up fell off the ladder!
      Jack: He did not! He jumped, and you know it!
