The Stateroom Gag YKTTW Discussion
|The Stateroom Gag|
Do We Have This One?? A character has just moved into a small room the size of a closet. For added hilarity, it may even *be* an actual closet. This person barely has room to stand up in, so what's the first thing that happens? They get visitors. Lots and lots of visitors. Originally done by the Marx Brothers in A Night at the Opera, which features a tiny stateroom on a ship. All other versions of this gag are most likely an homage to the original. --- Seen In:
- A Night at the Opera, of course
- Suite Life Of Zack And Cody - Actual Closet variant, completes the homage by having their mother open the door so that everyone tumbles out.
- Seinfeld - Elaine moves into a janitor's closet so she can order food, and Jerry and the gang drop by.
