  • Quotes

    • Jack: (reading telegram) Dear Mr. Benny, we want to thank you very much for sending us your orchestra. We're holding them over two more weeks. The Happy Valley Sanitarium. (to himself) Gee. Two more weeks. I'll hardly recognize the boys. Every time they dry 'em out, they come back two inches shorter.

    • Jack: Rochester, if you must sleep during a television show, why does it have to be mine? Why don't you sleep when, when Bob Hope is on?
      Rochester: I tried that, but the laughs kept waking me up.
      Jack: Oh, the laughs kept waking you up. But during my program--
      Rochester: Slept like a baby.
