THE GREAT LAUGH SHOW OF ALL TIME! (taglines)

Professor Fate[edit]

  • [covered in feathers after crashing during a stunt] I'd like to see the Great Leslie try THAT one!"
  • Push the button, Max! [on numerous occasions.]
  • Thieves, brigands and cut-throats of all nations may hound us... but we are ready for them... we shall blast them into Kingdom Come.
  • [to Leslie, after Leslie allows him to win the race] I hate you! You, I hate! You, whose clothes are always white, and whose hair is always combed, and whose car is always clean!

Prince Hapnik[edit]

  • [after getting a pie in the face] Ulp? Brandy? Hah-hah, throw more brandy! Throw brandy! More Brandy! [gets a second pie in the face] Rum! I never mix my pies. I want to play, too.

The Great Leslie[edit]

  • [to Maggie DuBois] You talk a good fight, but when it comes down to it, you're as emancipated as a confirmed spinster in a knitting bee.

Others[edit]

Lily Olay: I ain't no native, I was born here!
Texas Jack: NOW can I have me some fightin' room?! [several times during a saloon fight]
Baron von Stuppe As a very wise English gentleman once said, 'He who fights and runs away may live to fight another day'. So, until another day, Mr. Leslie, please excuse me, I have a boat waiting!

Dialogue[edit]

Professor Fate: My apologies, there's a polar bear in our car.
The Great Leslie: If you don't leave this car immediately, I shall personally feed you to the bear.

Professor Fate: Genius, Max, positive genius! What's next?
Max: Car number 5, the engine falls out!
Professor Fate: Car number 5, hah hah hah hah! Uh Max . . . we're number 5.

Max: Professor, Where are you?
Professor Fate: Behind the rock!
Max: Behind which rock? [falls over the professor]
Professor Fate: This rock you idiot!

The Great Leslie: [measuring the iceberg] Thirty seven inches to go.
Professor Fate: Oh, 37 inches to go. Huzzah! At the rate we've been melting, that's good for about one more week!
The Great Leslie: You'd better keep it to yourself.
Professor Fate: Oh, of course I'll keep it to myself. Until the water reaches my lower lip, and then I'm gonna mention it to SOMEBODY!

Professor Fate: Escaped?
General Kushter: With a small friar.
Professor Fate: Leslie escaped with a chicken?
