Default Favorite Lines From HELP!

What are your favorite lines from the movie HELP? Here are some of mine:


Clang: [offering a bagful of gold] Psst! Hey, Be-a-tle! You shall have fun, yes?
John: No thanks, I'm rhythm guitar and mouth organ.


Ringo: What was it that first attracted you to me?
John: Well, you're very polite, aren't you?


[In disguise at the airport. Newspapers have discovered their destination]
Ringo: Okay, who let it out.
John: Nobody'll know!
Paul: We're not going there!
John: We just put it about we're going there!
Paul: We're not going there!
John: We just put it about we're going there!
George: Just so everybody would think we're going there?
Ringo: I'd like to go there.
John: You wouldn't like it.
Ringo: Where are we going anyway?
John: Never you mind.


George: Hey, you're all red again.
Ringo: I know, I'm beginning to like it!


George: Hey, there might be some insurance.
John: I wouldn't think of such a thing!
John: [Whispering] Find out will you?


Professor Foot: MIT was after me, you know. Wanted me to rule the world for them.


Algernon: Stop him? Me? It's more than my job's worth to stop him once he gets started. He's out to rule the world... if he can get a government grant.


Professor Foot: With a ring like that I could - dare I say it? - rule the world.



God, I love this movie!

"Has nobody checked the wash basin?"

"Is it habiting forming?"
"No, not as long as you don't swallow it."

(These might not be verbatim but I like 'em!)

John: What's this?
Ringo: It's a season ticket. What do you think it is?
John: Oh. I like a lot of seasoning in me soup.


[Paul tracking foot prints]
Paul: Easterner with greasy feet speak with fork tongue.
John: Does he? What's he say?
Paul: Passing this way, hot foot, many moons to temple.
George: Don't encourage him. You've got the part Paul!


Ringo: The Fire Brigade once got my head out of some railings.
John: Did you want them to?
Ringo: No, I used to leave it there when I wasn't using it for school. You can see a lot of the world from railings.


Ringo: Look, John, I've had some great good times with this finger, and how do you know I wouldn't miss it?

Talking

Haha! OBC likes the same ones as I do!

Here's some more:

John to Ringo: "It was you buzzin'! You naughty boy!"

George: "I'm always getting winked at these. Use to be you, wasn't it Paul"

Paul to Ringo: "You're a rat underneath, aren't ya?"

During scuffle:
John: "Get me the home office. He's wreckin' my home!"

The bit in the Scotland yard office is great too:
John: "It's them. Cuz only Paul and I know we're here"
George: "*I* know we're here.."


I'm sure there's more.

Cool

I'm reminded of walking with Asha in NYC doing the opening bit with her. The one between the two women in the beginning. Ahhh--great times! And great fun! I'm surprised EB didn't correct our errors.

I didn't encourage that wink, y'know!
Don't encourage him. You've already got the part, Paul!
What's that whirly-thing coming through his stomach?
Thanks for the lift, Sailor!

Oh man I got plenty! Here's one for now:

George accidentally starts strangling John-
John:It's me, you fool!
George: (still going) Oh, Sorry!
John: Well, stop it!

It's not really a line, but I love when they are interrogating the prisoners out in the open field and the Superintendent turns the lamp on him and he cringes at the light. I love it.

All the lines everyone mentioned are gold. I just might watch the film when I get home.

Here's another!

Foot: Yes, I know! I'm here, you fool! Steady!
Algernon: Steady, I am steady.
Foot: That's what comes of teaching science by televison
Algernon: You'll thank me in the end.
Foot: Now turn it to the right and it locks
Algernon: I am turning it to the right, it is locking. I am lifting it up. I am moving my left leg, I am moving my right leg-
Foot: Oh, give it to me!

"Hey, a thingy, a fiendish thingy!"

"How do you feel?"
"I used to use me hands."
"He used to use his hands!"

"Hey! Have you been messing about with me in my kip? You know, with a fishing rod?"
"I wouldn't touch it with a plastic one! What are you doing on the floor?"
"I'm tired."

"There's more here than meets the eye!"
"Ho ho."
"Ho."
"huh ho."

"Where you been, eh? Up to that temple again, ain't ya? You're as bad as your sister coming home from work all hours and all colors."

"How do you know you're not just as filthy and sent by him to nick the ring by being filthy when you have lulled us with your filthy eastern ways?"
"What filthy ways are those?"

"Hey, this is the famous Rrringo here, gear fab..."

"With a ring like that I could - dare I say it? - rule the world."

"Well I didn't encourage that wink.."

"Jeweller, you've failed!"

"Bad machine!"

"Easterner with greasy feet speak with fork tongue."
"Does he? What's he say?"
"Passing this way, hot foot, many moons to temple."
"Don't encourage him. You've got the part, Paul!"
"Dare we ask how you know?"
"How?"
"How! I saw these footprints and this guide book which points out places of local worship."
"To the temple!"

I was at a summer party once about 6 years ago and it turned in to a water fight. When it ended I commented that "My skin's soaked right through to the skin" and my friends just stared at me blankly for a few seconds before moving on. I love that scene.

A question that pops in my head everytime I see that scene:

To those out there who saw the movie when it first came to theaters, did the girls go nuts when George's shirt rips off? I'd always figured that they would have, same when Ringo's pants drop.

Who could forget George strangling John and John screaming, "It's me, you fool!"

John to Ringo: "Chop it [your finger] off, Ringo!" with a demented giggle and an equally demented facial expression.

Paul asking the dancer if the blood rushed to her stomach.

Then there was Ringo and that line about the season ticket when he found a ticket in his soup.

George and his famous one liners like "doesn't sound A BIT like Cagney!"

I saw "Help" on the big screen, the people in the theater, I think were to into seeing the Beatles in color, I don't recall any screams, a few giggles when Ringo's pants dropped.....
