* In ''Go West'', [[Creator/TheMarxBrothers Chico Marx]] asked [[TheVoiceless Harpo]] what he had spent $60 on, and Harpo made an "hourglass" figure with his hands. Chico replied "Oh, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint you bought a snake]]." (The gag also appears in ''A Day at the Races'', in which Harpo's attempts to tell Chico about TheVamp who plans to seduce and frame Groucho are interpreted as, "A snake! A big, big snake!" After Harpo's gestures and whistles get more and more exaggerated, "That's-a no snake.")

-->'''Agent Alexander Papadopoulos:''' Okay. If you say so. I remember having to pull Agent Maher away from some woman; wasn't attacking him, quite the opposite. Couldn't blame him. She had curves in all the right places - made it easy to ignore the tentacles.

A StockPhrase for narrators describing [[MsFanservice an attractive female character]], and for FanFic writers trying to make a female character [[PossessionSue inexplicably more attractive than she is in canon]]. It probably describes an hourglass figure - that is to say, large breasts, round hips, and a small waist connecting the two - but ''exactly'' what it means is kind of vague and highly subjective, since readers' ideas of what "all the right places" are, and how ''much'' they should curve, will vary.
