  • Quotes

    • Sgt. Vandermeer: (asking questions about Jack's car for the police report) Maxwell? From what country?
      Jack: No, no. You see, it was made in this country. Of course, they don't make them anymore although the factory's still in existence. They make pencil sharpeners.
      Sgt. Vandermeer: Pencil sharpeners?
      Jack: There were a lot of crank handles left over...

    • Rochester: (on phone to Jack) Your car has been stolen.
      Jack: My Maxwell, stolen? I mean--when did this happen?
      Rochester: Two hours ago.
      Jack: Well, why didn't you call me sooner?
      Rochester: I just stopped laughin'!
