  • This:
    Professor Wagstaff: Young man, you'll find as you get older, you can't burn the candle at both ends.
    (Harpo pulls a candle burning at both ends from out of his coat)
    Professor Wagstaff: (nonplussed, for Groucho) Well, I knew you couldn't burn something at both ends. I thought it was a candle.
  • And this:
    Zeppo: [congratulating Groucho on his speech] I'm proud to be your son.
    Groucho: You took the words right out of my mouth; I'm ashamed to be your father.
  • Groucho looks at a picture of the back end of a horse: "That reminds me, I haven't seen my son all day!"

  • "Why don't you go home to your wife? I'll tell you what: I'll go home to your wife. Outside of the improvement, she'll never know the difference."
