    I hear that Dec. 25 is Christmas, so I’m departing from my every-five-days schedule to post a day early. For this post, I thought I’d make a little game out of several of my favorite Christmas lines from song and film. It’s simple enough: below are the lines; you name the song or film from whence they came. If you’ve been good, attentive little girls and boys, you should get all of them right; otherwise, I’ll tell Santa you’ve been naughty. However, if you’re a big, grown-up girl, I’ll let him know — ere he shows up down your chimney tonight bearing gifts — that you plan to behave yourself (unless you have other ideas).

     1. He’s making a list. Checking it twice. Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.

    2. Christmas Eve’ll find me where the love light gleams. [SONG TITLE] if only in my dreams.

    3. SCROOGE: “Let us deal with the eviction notices for tomorrow, Mr. Cratchit.”
    KERMIT: “Uh, tomorrow’s Christmas, Sir.”
    SCROOGE: “Very well. You may gift wrap them.”

    4. You can’t fool me – there ain’t no Sanity Clause.

    5. Although it’s been said, many times, many ways….Merry Christmas to you.

    Now for the answers:




    Chico Marx to Groucho in A NIGHT AT THE OPERA


    You say you answered them all correctly, and you want to know what you get? BAH HUMBUG, that’s what! Nonetheless….

      Thank you, girls, and Merry Christmas to two of my favorite ladies (WordPress ladies, that is – I wouldn’t want to give the impression that I have a harem). 🙂 🙂

          Caremn, you got me there – after all, I am very broad minded (I don’t mean to ignore you guys, but it’s a lot more fun to tease broads – I mean, lovely ladies).

      I got 4 out of 5. I could have lied and said I got them all but then Richard the IVth, set the standard when he admitted to not getting a single one right on my quiz.

      Ooops I almost forgot. Merry Christmas Muse.

      You got 4 out of 5? Now you got me wondering which one you missed. I KNOW it wasn’t #4, and I don’t think it was #1, 2 or 3, so I’m guessing #5. In any case, Don, I echo Merry Christmas to you (although it’s been said many times, many ways).

      Thank you, Leyla. May you picture dandelions as flowers, and may your dreams flower all the days of your life.

     Moe: What’s yer watch say? Shemp: Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick. (FRIGHT NIGHT, 1947)

    • * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ** * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    When I found that Moe Howard, of THREE STOOGES fame, died on this day (in 1975), I thought of writing a post celebrating their timeless brand of sophisticated humor — nyuk nyuk nyuk.

    Of course, when you think of role models for how siblings (Moe, Curly & Shemp were brothers) — or how people in general, for that matter — should respect and treat one another, no one set a higher standard than The Three Stooges — nyuk nyuk nyuk.

    Like most guys — and possibly a few gals — I loved The Three Stooges when I was young. Still do, as a matter of fact, but on a more selective basis. For example, I looked at four or five of their short films to find one I thought came close to meeting my high standards and those of my exceedingly discriminating audience — nyuk nyuk nyuk:

    So, nyuknuckleheads, that concludes my film presentation….but you say you want Moe? Soitenly! Nyuk nyuk nyuk. There’s lots Moe quotes (and Curly and Shemp quotes, not to mention Larry Fine quotes) where that opening quote came from. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.

    Burnt toast and a rotten egg? Whatta ya want that for?
    I got a tapeworm and that’s good enough for him.
    Moe and Curly, PUNCH DRUNKS, 1934

    Why don’t I come up and see you sometime when you’re in the nude…I mean mood.
    -Shemp, ART TROUBLE, 1934

    What’s that for? I didn’t do nothin’!
    That’s in case you do and I’m not around.
    -Moe and Larry, HOI POLLOI, 1935

    Soitenly I’m sound asleep.
    Then why are you talkin’?
    I’m talkin’ in my sleep!
    -Curly and Moe, MOVIE MANIACS, 1936

    Are you sure this work will be in competent hands?
    Soitenly, we’re all incompetent!
    -Mr. Morgan and Curly, SLIPPERY SILKS, 1936

    You mean I’m um-day in pig language?
    You’re um-day in any language.
    -Curly and Moe, TASSELS IN THE AIR, 1938

    Oh boy! I can see it now — I come home from a hard day’s work….I whistle for the dog….and my wife comes out.
    -Curly, YES, WE HAVE NO BONANZA, 1939

    Why don’t you get a toupee with some brains in it?
    -Moe to Curly, THREE SAPPY PEOPLE, 1939

    Good morning, sir — I’m the census taker. Are you married or happy?
    -Moe, NO CENSUS, NO FEELING, 1940

    Them’s fightin’ words in my country!
    Well then, let’s fight.
    We ain’t in my country.
    -Shemp and Icabod Slipp, HOLD THAT LION!, 1947

    You know fish is great brain food.
    You know you should fish for a whale.
    -Larry and Moe, PARDON MY CLUTCH, 1948

    Whale, I think I’ll quit now, because I resemble that remark.

      Quotes of note, Sr. Muse. Hardly noticed them when I was a kid, though. I only followed the eye pokes and the head-knocks.


    • mistermuse 10:49 am on May 5, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      I don’t know why, but that stuff still cracks me up. Maybe Dr. Don can explain the psychology of it. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.

      btw, I just realized that while I knew the names Moe and Curly I couldn’t remember the name of the other brother: Shemp. Wonder why that was?

      Although Shemp was part of the original comedy act (with Moe & Larry) called Ted Healy and his Stooges, he left the act in the early 1930s. Then Moe, Larry & Curly performed as The Three Stooges until Curly suffered a stroke in 1946, when Shemp returned. So the short answer to your question is that Shemp wasn’t one of The Three Stooges during a good portion of their heyday.

      Hey I’ve been busy for a little while, so I’ve been away from the net. But I remembered Moe, Larry and Curly and of course as a kid I used to think, doesn’t that hurt. Great memories Muse.


    • mistermuse 2:00 pm on May 7, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      To tell the truth, I was always a bit queasy about the eye pokes, but I guess I thought the knocks on the head were just too over-the-top to take seriously.
