Movie Quote of the Day (‘The Cocoanuts,’ in Which Groucho Romances a Rich Woman Who’s Unexpectedly Unattainable)

Hammer [played by Groucho Marx]: [to Mrs. Emily Potter, after trying to put his arms around her, only to find she’s too tall for him.] “Can you come down a little bit? Just think, tonight, tonight when the moon is sneaking around the clouds, I'll be sneaking around you. I'll meet you tonight under the moon. Oh, I can see you now -- you and the moon. You wear a necktie so I'll know ya.”— The Cocoanuts (1929), based on the Broadway play by George S. Kaufman, adapted by Morrie Ryskind, directed by Robert Florey and Joseph Santley
