Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Chester, I give you my SOLEMN word. THIS time it’s not dangerous.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Not dangerous?
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): No.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): That’s what ‘cha said when you shot me out of a cannon, when you dropped me in a tank with an octopus, when you had me wrestle a gorilla. It’s not dangerous! I’m not goin’. I’m through. I’ve had it. So forget it, *Charly*!

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): [hands Chester a hand mirror] Who’s that?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [seeing his reflection] I don’t know, but gimme a stick and I’ll kill it.

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Why do you suppose they’re sending *us* up?
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): They wanna find out if it’s gonna be safe for the apes.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Oh.

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [espying Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra] The Italians have landed!
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): That’s the grape and the twig, isn’t is?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yeah, and they got the bar open.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Let’s break it up.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Those tourists.

Leader of the 3rd Echelon: In that rocket, we’re about to send two animals around the moon; and, if we succeed, we shall next send two men. And from the moon, that point of impenetrable power, I shall go before the United Nations and demand that they accede to our total and absolute control.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [to Harry] I think he rolls his own.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): An hour ago she flipped over me. I don’t dig it.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Well, that’s understandable. An impressionable young thing falls for an elderly fellow. She probably thought you were a father figure.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Father figure?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yes, then she took another look and found out you had your father’s figure.

Diane (Joan Collins): There must be some sensible solution to this problem.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Well, of course there is. Two fellas, one girl. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, you come to my house.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yeah. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, my house.
Diane (Joan Collins): What about Sunday?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Everbody rests.

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): No, I can see the tears forming in your wallet.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Well, don’t get sore at me. It’s just a plot point.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Don’t I always get you the best medical attention available?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yeah, like that doctor you got me in Bombay last month.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): How was I going to know he was an elephant doctor?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): You should have known by the size of his thermometer.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Yes, was a bit large.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): When he shook it, I was still on it.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Happy landings, buster!
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): I don’t know what you’re so happy about. You’re not mentioned in my will.

Indian Neurologist: [examining Chester] Ugh!
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): What is it, Doctor?
Indian Neurologist: Terrible heartburn. Oh, dear, put too much curry in my corn flakes, you understand.

[as the neurologist plays his flute during Chester’s examination, a cobra rises from its basket]
Indian Neurologist: Oh, nothing to worry about. If he should give you a nip, it’s very simple. All you do is to get hold of your bowie knife like this, make a cut on here, suck out the poison and spit it away. Very simple.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yeah, but what if he bites me in a place I can’t reach?
Indian Neurologist: That is when you find out who your real friends are.

[while agent Diane mistakenly thinks she’s made her secret contact with a microfilm photographer, Chester, thinking himself a chick magnet, simply believes he’s caught the eye of a beautiful, romantic woman]
Diane (Joan Collins): [whispers] Do you think we’re being watched?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [noticing Harry staring at them from the bar] Definitely.
Diane (Joan Collins): Oh, then we’ll have to hurry.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Have we got time?
Diane (Joan Collins): If you work fast.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): I’ll do my best.
Diane (Joan Collins): Good. Now, I’ve got the room ready at the hotel.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Good.
Diane (Joan Collins): I’ve made all the arrangements.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Fine.
Diane (Joan Collins): The shades are all drawn.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Very sensible.
Diane (Joan Collins): And we can lock the door from the inside.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Oh, good. I’d hate to get a crowd until I get the hang of it.

[Agent Diane continues to mistakenly think she’s made her secret contact with a microfilm photographer while Chester, thinking himself a chick magnet, still believes he’s caught the eye of a beautiful, romantic woman]
Diane (Joan Collins): Are you sure you’ve done this sort of thing before?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [suffering from amnesia] Well, I MUST have. When do we start?
Diane (Joan Collins): Right now.
Diane (Joan Collins): [suddenly shouting] Darling, it’s so wonderful to see you again.
[She slips him an envelop as she kisses him]
Diane (Joan Collins): [whispering] You’ve got it.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [ego stroked and oblivious to the envelope] I know it.
Diane (Joan Collins): Don’t lose it.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Don’t worry.
Diane (Joan Collins): I’ll see you at the hotel.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Pull the shades and lock the door.
Diane (Joan Collins): One final thing.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yes?
Diane (Joan Collins): In case I’m late, you go ahead without me.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): You got a mind like a sponge.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yeah, don’t get any ideas about squeezing it, either.

Diane (Joan Collins): Are you sure you’re not pulling my leg?
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Business first, fun and games later, mm?

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [cracks open a fortune cookie and reads] “You are under grave suspicion. Your partner suspects you of dishonesty.”
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [passing it to Harry] Here, it’s for you.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): [gazing out an airplane window] There she lies, Chester – Hong Kong.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Yeah, what a monument to fried rice.

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Hey, we’re UNDER water! That’s the ocean!
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): So?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): So? We spring a little leak, we’ll drown.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Well, you don’t have to worry. You got a built-in snorkel.

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): [seeing a shark outside the porthole] Looks like he just ate Lloyd Bridges.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Don’t worry. They don’t eat people.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): How about actors.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): We’re safe.

Diane (Joan Collins): Mr. Babcock, if you leave now, you’ll be running out on your fellow man.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): That still leaves my fellow women.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Chester, search your secret soul. Ask your patriotic conscience what to do.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): I already did.
Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): What’d it say?
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): “Yankee, go home.”

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): My nose bleeds when I put my carpet slippers on.

Diane (Joan Collins): At least you can die like heroes.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Nah, but we’re to old to die.

Diane (Joan Collins): I could love you, body and soul.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): They’re available, in that order.

Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Who do you think they’ll be shooting at – you or the schnook with the I.B.M. machine up his univac?

Diane (Joan Collins): Trust me and you’ll come to no harm.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Trust me and I make no promises.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): How do we get out of here?
Diane (Joan Collins): The submarine. I can handle it.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): I know. I read the script.

Harry Turner (Bing Crosby): Those guys mean business. They’re killers, murders.
Chester Babcock (Bob Hope): Besides that, they’re unfriendly.

Once they find the cure, Chester’s memory becomes so good that he accidentally memorizes a secret formula for space navigation. Soon the two meet up with a beautiful spy (Collins) and get slightly sidetracked’to another planet!
