Best Show Lines 1886

Postby joplin » August 22nd, 2012, 2:29 pm

Here's a place where we can post our favorite show lines from the late 1800's I put 86 b/c we all know what a classic year it was. But feel free to do anything as long as it's not from the 90's. Cool. I'll start us off.

(scene takes place in a barn)

Whitman: Let's tidy up these hay bales and get our fuck on.
Alcott: I'm going to keep wearing what I am, thank you.
Whitman: Hmmm?
Alcott: Ponder that.

William Tweed: This fish is as flat as a board...and twice as slippery!
City Cop: *blink blink*
William Tweed: I think you'll find that was humorous *slips $20 bill into cop's jacket pocket*
City Cop: HAHAHAHA...wait, didn't you die 8 years ago
William Tweed: I think you'll find I'm still quite alive *slips ghost $20 bill into cop's jacket pocket*
City Cop: *blink blink*

British Regent: Happy Birthday, my Queen (presents her a scroll)
Queen Victoria: What is it?
British Regent: It's Burma.
Queen Victoria: Come again?
British Regent: Don't mind if I do!
"Oh, shit. We're being pulled over."
"Is it us?"
"No, it's someone else, and he's pulling us over to tell us who it is, like a courtesy"
