Groucho Marx, Roi de la Ligne Comique

Il n'avait pas d'égal. Personne ne l'accote encore.

Je passe chez Shakespeare pour celle-ci...désolé si je blesse certaines personnes moins riches et armées.

Je metterai ces propos en italiques pour ne pas vous mettre en tabernick.

Traduitait-on Marc Favreau en lui rendant justice?
Non. Tout comme on ne devrait pas le faire pour les Monty Pythons ou George Carlin ou John Lennon.

Ou les frères Marx.

Voici un petit aperçu des meilleures lignes du grand Groucho.

Un régal:

-I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member

-I never forget a face but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception.

-I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it.

-I shot an elephant in my pajamas, how he got into my pajamas? I'll never know.

-Just give me a confortable couch, a dog, a good book and a woman. Then if you can get the dog to go somewhere else and read the book, I may have some fun.

- Military intelligence is a contradiction in words.

-A 5 year-old could understand this, get me a five year old.

-Anyone who says he can see through women is missing a lot.

-All people are born alike, except republicans & democrats.

-Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend, inside of a dog, it really is too dark to read.

-Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?

-Behind every great man there is a great woman, and behind that woman there is the man's wife.

-I find television very educating. Each time someone turns it on, I go in the other room and read a book.

-I intend to live forever, or die trying.

-The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing, if you can fake that you're in business.

-I need a doctor now, please ring a golf course.

-Getting older is not a problem, You just have to live long enough.

-Next time I see you, remind me not to talk to you.

-I've worked my way from nothing to extreme poverty.

-From the moment I picked up your book up until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend to read it.

-I must confess, I was born at a very early age

-I have a mind to join a club and beat you over the head with it.

-If you heard that story before, please don't stop me, I want to hear it again.

-I've got the brain of a 4 year-old, I'll bet he was glad to be rid of it.

-Who are you gonna believe? me or your own eyes?

-Marry me and I'll never look at another horse.

-Whoever named it necking was a poor judge of anatomy.

-If I held you any closer I would be on the other side of you.

-I'd whip-horse you if I had a horse.

-My mother loved children she would have given anhything if I had been one.

-(au téléphone)Room Service? send up a larger room!

-Why should I care about posterity? What has posterity has ever done for me?

-He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot, but don't let this fool you, he really is an idiot.

-I have nothing but respect for you...and not much of that.

-I'm not crazy about reality, but it's still the only place to get a decent meal.

Merci la vie pour Groucho Marx.
Tu nous manque encore.
