Thursday 3: 1981 Classic

There's a popular meme called Thursday 13 in which every Thursday you make a list of thirteen things. I did this for a few months, but I don't have time for thirteen! So, I whittled it down to Thursday 3.

Sometimes I like to see if you can recognize a movie from three quotes. These quotes are all uttered by the same character.

1. "I've taken the liberty of anticipating your condition. I have brought you orange juice, coffee, and aspirins. Or do you need to throw up?"

2. "Normally, someone would have to go to a bowling alley to meet someone of your stature."

3. "Good afternoon. If you and your undershirt will take two paces backwards, I could enter this dwelling."

Hint: The movie title is one word long.

They don't make actors like John Gielgud anymore. *sigh*

And my favorite lines are these:

Susan: A real woman could stop you from drinking.
Arthur: It'd have to be a real BIG woman.

LMAO, Gaucho. Yes, Gielgud is sorely missed.

Paige, it was Arthur, with Dudley Moore and Liza Minelli.

I had those lines memorized at the age of 10! Arthur is one of my all-time favorite films, ever!

I'm cracking up just reading the lines... Once, when I was about 16, I remember a radio station played the soundtrack for the film (that's the audio soundtrack - the dialogue, etc) so people could hear it in stereo. I didn't even need to watch it, I just listened to it in my room and laughed and laughed...

Arthur is one of my faves, too! I love the line in the end where the bride's father grabs the knife out of the cheese and Arthur sobs, "do you think he wants some cheese?" Hilarious!

There are SO MANY classic quotable lines from this movie. It's such a classic. When I watched it again recently, I couldn't believe how young Jill Eikenberry was. Way before LA Law, I think.
