Funny movie quotes from The Cat and the Canary

Funny movie quotes from The Cat and the Canary, a funny haunted house mystery/comedy starring Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard

Cicily (Nydia Westman): It’s awful spooky down here. Do you believe in reincarnation?
Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): Huh?
Cicily (Nydia Westman): You know… that dead people come back?
Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): You mean like the Republicans?


Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): [to Joyce] You know, what this party needs is more drinks and more laughs.I’ll tell yuh, I’ll bring a bottle of scotch from the living room. Let’s all drink scotch and make wry faces.


Cicily (Nydia Westman): Don’t big empty houses scare you?
Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): Not me, I used to be in vaudeville.


Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): I’m so scared, even my goose pimples have goose pimples.


Miss Lu (Gale Sondergaard): There are spirits all around you.
Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): Well, could you put some in a glass with a little ice? I need it badly.


Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): Wait. My mother brought me up never to be caught twice in the same lady’s bedroom.


Cicily (Nydia Westman): I suggest we all sleep together!


Mr. Crosby, lawyer (George Zucco): [Referring to Miss Lu’s talk about spiritualism] Wait, wait! Stop all this, Miss Lu. Do you want to frighten these ladies out of their wits?
Fred Blythe (John Beal): [Sarcastically referring to Aunt Susan and Cicily] Oh, there’s not much danger in that.


Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): [Wiscracking to his stoic Indian guide] You seem like the jolly type, Clarence. D’yuh like jokes? You don’t mind if I ramble on, do you? Keeps my mind off the malaria germs.


Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): [to Joyce] You know, what this party needs is more drinks and more laughs. I’ll tell you, I’ll bring a bottle of scotch from the dining room, and we’ll sit around here and drink scotch and make wry faces. Do you get it? “Scotch and rye”? [Joyce starts to chuckle, and Wally hands her his pistol] Here. I don’t need a gun with jokes like that.


Fred Blythe (John Beal): I could use a drink.
Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): Yeah, I could too. Might as well be a live stiff as a dead stiff.


Cicily (Nydia Westman): I’m psychic. I was in a trance once.
Wally Campbell (Bob Hope): I know, I know. When are you coming out of it?
