Swann's rather suave way to use a restroom:
Lil: This is for ladies only! Swann: (unzips his fly) So is this, ma'am, but every now and then I have to run a little water through it! (Lil, played by the unflappable Selma Diamond, can only nod in agreement)

After watching this movie, you will never again be able to listen to the 1812 Overture without laughing your ass off.
