  • Quotes

    • (introducing director Mervyn LeRoy in the audience)
      Jack: You know, Mervyn LeRoy has directed many great pictures...even though we've been close pals for years, he's never taken advantage of our friendship by asking me to appear in one of his pictures. These kind of friends I don't need!

    • (Dennis is discussing his late uncle)
      Jack: Your uncle didn't die. I saw him this morning walking down the street.
      Dennis: That was my aunt. He left her his clothes.

    • (Jack discussing a recent physical)
      Jack: The doctor asked me how old I was and I said 39. He said, "That's funny because your corpuscles are 62."
