Funny movie quotes from Higher Than a Kite
Kelly: If this is what I think it is, you’ll get your wings and a harp with ’em!
Moe: [to Curly] And what did you answer when they asked what does a navigator do?
Curly: I told them a navigator crawls through a swamp until it becomes a suitcase, and bites like this too. [Gestures his hands with the snapping motion of an alligator’s jaws, with growling imitation]
Moe: No, like this. [Uses horizontal motion of alligator’s jaws, then slaps Curly with both hands]
Marshall Boring (Vernon Dent): [eyeing Larry, who is dressed as a woman] Come here, my little edelweiss. Zit on my lap.
Larry: [looking at the overweight general] What lap?
