Can you guess?

Can you guess what movie I'm watching? It's my all-time favorite...here are some of the quotes that get me laughing:

"The Lord loves a workin' man, don't trust Whitey, see a doctor and get rid of it..."

"The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here! Page 73...Johnson, Navin R! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity-your name in print-that makes people! I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me NOW."

"First I get my name in the phone book and now I'm on your ass! You know, I'll bet more people see that than the phone book."

(singing) "I'm picking out a Thermos for you...not an ordinary Thermos for you. But the extra best Thermos you can buy, with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in. I'm picking out a thermos for you...and maybe a barometer too... For what else can I buy, so on me you'll rely? A rear-end thermometer too!

"My dear family...guess what? Today I found out what my special purpose is for. Gosh, what a great time I had! I wish the whole family could have been here with me. Maybe some other time, as I intend to do this alot. Every chance I get. I think next week I'll be able to send more money, as I may have extra work. My friend Patty promised me a blow job."

50 bonus points to the first person who guesses correctly...and NO CHEATING by looking it up! If you don't already know it, you don't deserve to know it! LOL!!!

I only knew it was The Jerk because of the phone book line, I've never seen the movie the whole way through...I guess its time to watch!!!

Hey, that was just waaaayyyy too easy! The phone book comment was enough to give it away!! My favorite line comes when he's leaving and picking up bits and pieces from the house..like the lamp...and then trades it all for a thermos! 'I have a lovely thermos for you!'

"All I want is this chair. . ." - favorite line to say before one of my 17/18 moves - and the other favorite scene to talk about is to tell people I dance like Steve Martin in The Jerk - family and friends will attest to that - I love that movie!
