Buddy Hackett Quotes:

Mr. Thorndyke: Good sir, would you say this is a compact car?... You do not answer. Well, let me tell you that you've never heard of a compact car until you see what I'm going to do with this. Mr. Douglas, I have a friend with a claw-and-hook auto-wrecking company in San Francisco, and he's going to work on your car. Maybe he'll transform it into a birdbath. Or what about a nice doormat, so I can wipe my feet on it every day. It's too bad this thing doesn't have the gumption to get up to the starting line this morning. I should have enjoyed beating it.

Tennessee Steinmetz: [croaking, grunting] AUWWW...!


S.Z. Matts: How come you're in that cage protected, and I'm out here getting bumbed off?
Cappy: Sanctuary.
Julie: Sanctuary?
Cappy: Yeah, sanctuary from them. These beach kids. I had to build this thing to protect myself. I used to have a beautiful Cappy's place even more beautiful than this. And just last year, these beach kids completely demolished it and pretty near demolished me with it during a rumble all because of a stranger like you. Hey, you're not another one of those anthropologist explorers or something? A sex maniac maybe?
S.Z. Matts: I don't have any hobbies.


Benjy Benjamin: If I have to climb much more of *this* I'll be lying down there *with* him!
