  • Quotes

    • Jack: Imagine the studio doing a whole hour television show about the story of my life.
      Rochester: Boss, there's so many celebrities in Hollywood. How come they picked you?
      Jack: I wasn't exactly their first choice, you see, but they found out that mine was the only life they wouldn't have to censor. (after a brief pause) Darnit.

    • Actress: Would it be all right if I sat down?
      Jack: Well, you know that dress better than I do.

    • Jack: (recalling their early radio days) I gave you five dollars a week and your meals. Remember that, Don?
      Don: Yeah. Gosh, I wish I had that deal again!
      Jack: Well, you're not going to get it, brother!

    • (Jack complains about how hard it is to read Rochester's typing)
      Rochester: Well boss, I've been telling you the same thing for two years. Buy a new ribbon.
      Jack: Why should I buy a new ribbon?
      Rochester: Because taking off the old one and dipping it in grape juice is ridiculous.

    • (seeing his first girlfriend from his youth)
      Jack: Oh, Mildred, before you go, do you remember the time I asked your father for your hand?
      Mildred: Yes, I had a dollar in it.
      Jack: Yes, I know.
