Great Lines, Part 5

"Last night I shot an elephant in my Pajamas and how he got in my pajamas I'll never know." This line is spoken by Groucho Marx as Captain Geoffrey T. Spaulding in Animal Crackers, the second Marx Brothers movie. Spaulding is the famous African explorer who woos Margaret Dumont and generally cracks a joke a minute. Groucho continues," Then we tried to remove the tusks, but they were imbedded so firmly that we couldn't budge them. Of course, in Alabama, the Tuscaloosa but that's entirely irr-elephant to what I was talking about." He also sings and dances to "Hello, I Must Be Going" in this one, certainly one of their best.
