Funny movie quotes from one of the Marx Brothers’ underrated films, ‘Room Service’

Frank Albertson: Oh, but you see, I’ve left home for good. I’ve burned my bridges behind me.
Groucho: I see. But you could go back if you wanted to.
Frank Albertson: My mother seemed very happy when I left.
Groucho: Only a mother’s mask. At this moment, she may be sitting at the fireside, wringing her hands.
Frank Albertson: Oh, we have no fireside.
Groucho: You have no fireside? How do you listen to the President’s speeches?


Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): [taking off layers of clothing] Now I know how Gypsy Rose Lee feels.


Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): You go down and tell Waggner that if he doesn’t behave himself, I’ll buy this hotel and make him a bellhop.  No, that’s too good for him … I’ll make him a guest!


Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): I still think it’s a terrible play, but it makes a wonderful rehearsal.


Groucho: [Disapprovingly] Love! He talks just like one of the characters in his play.
Chico: I don’t know. I like-a love.
Groucho: I like it too; but, there’s a time and place for everything.
Chico: I like it anytime.


Hilda Manny (Ann Miller): If I don’t come back you’ll know it’s good news.
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): And if you do come back bring four bottles of poison.


Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): You’ve been in jail?
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): Sure, it’s ‘a not so bad. You behave and they make you a trustee.



Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): The young lady can play one of the minors.
Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): But the minors are all men!
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): Do me a favor, Davis, and keep sex out of this conversation!  I’ve never produced anything but clean plays.


Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): You take the night shift, and I’ll take the day shift, and I’ll be in Scotland before ya!


Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): Wait a minute.  Suppose one of us got sick.
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): [snaps his fingers] That’s the idea! They can’t put a sick man out, it’s against the law!
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): Remember I had kidney trouble at the Astor and gall stones at the Plaza!
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): Those were the happy days.


Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): I’m weak! If I don’t get something to eat pretty soon, I’m gonna collapse!
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): Hey, we’re just as hungry as you are.
Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): Yeah, but you fellows are used to it.  I’ve never gone without food for 18 hours before.
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): It’s all a matter of willpower.  If you just make up your mind.
Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): I can make up my mind alright, I just can’t do anything about my stomach.


Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): If only we had something to hock.
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): How about that moose head?
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): Oh no you don’t! I shot him with my own two hands, I ate him up to the neck, but I refuse to part with the rest of him!
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): If I could get my watch out of hock, I’d hock it again.
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): I’m so hungry I’m starting to see spots before my eyes.
Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): Me, too.
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): Mine are beginning to look like hamburgers.
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): If you see one with onions, save it for me.


[Talking about the Russian waiter, who wants to act in the play]
Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): Gee, he has a lot of talent.
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): I’ve seen him carry twelve trays at once.


Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): You can’t miss him, second straitjacket to the left.


Chico: Hurry up, before they come back. And, groan, groan, stagger about and don’t die too soon! You must take your time. And you mustn’t die before 11 o’clock.
Frank Albertson: Don’t you worry! I’ll give you the best performance you ever saw in a hotel bedroom!
Groucho: That’s the spirit! Good luck, Davis. Drop dead!


Leo Davis (Frank Albertson): Gee, I-I-I don’t know whether I can keep it up for two and a half hours.
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): It’s all right. We’€™ll help you.


Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): Shhh. Money.


[pretending that Leo Davis has died]
Gordon Miller (Groucho Marx): Too soon, too soon, he died too soon.
Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): An hour too soon.


Harry Binelli (Chico Marx): Hello? Room Service. Bring up enough ice to cool a warm body.


Gregory Wagner: Jumping butterballs!
