Guilty Pleasure Flick Saturday - Blazing Saddles

Here it is, Saturday again. That means Guilty Pleasure Flick! Today's choice is an absolute favorite, has been a favorite (it seems) forever. Blazing Saddles is just so much FUN! Some of my favorite 'go-to' lines are from this classic movie:

Lili Von Shtupp: Hello, handsome, is that a ten-gallon hat or are you just enjoying the show?
*******************
Lili Von Shtupp: A wed wose. How womantic.
**************
Lili Von Shtupp: [singing] Here I stand, the goddess of desire / Set men on fire / I have this power. / Morning, noon, and night, it's dwink and dancing / Some quick womancing / And then a shower. / Stage door Johnnies constantly suwwound me / They always hound me, with one wequest. / Who can satisfy their lustful habits? / I'm not a wabbit. / I need some we... [Takes a breath]
Lili Von Shtupp: ... est.
****************
Mexican Bandit: Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.
**************
Mongo: Mongo only pawn... in game of life.
**************
Lili Von Shtupp: Tell me, schatze, is it twue what they say about the way you people are... gifted? [sound of zipper opening]
Lili Von Shtupp: Oh, it's twue. It's twue. It's twue, it's twue!
***********************

Taggart: [shouting] We'll head them off at the pass!
Hedley Lamarr: Head them off at the pass? I hate that cliché!
*******************
Hedley Lamarr: [gives her a bunch of flowers] For you, my dear.
Lili Von Shtupp: Oh... how ordinawy.
**********************
Lili Von Shtupp: Willkommen. Bienvenue. Welcome. C'mon in.
******************
Bart: Well, raise my rent. You *are* The Kid.
*******************
Jim: I'd better sit up. [struggles to straighten himself]
Bart: Need any help?
Jim: Oh... all I can get.
******************
Jim: [Bart comes in after spending the night with Lili Von Stupp] Oh deary dear. Look what the cat dragged in.
**********************
Jim: [to Bart] What's a dazzling urbanite like you doing in a rustic setting like this?
*************************
[Lamarr's posse rides up on Bart's diversion: a single tollbooth in the middle of the desert] Taggart: *LePetomaine Thruway*? Now what'll that asshole think of next? [turns to the posse] Taggart: Has anybody got a dime?
[henchmen grumble, search their pockets]
Taggart: Somebody's gotta go back and get a shit-load of dimes!
**********************
Hedley Lamarr: Repeat after me: I...
Men: I...
Hedley Lamarr: ...your name...
Men: ...your name...
Hedley Lamarr: [to himself] Shmucks. [continues aloud]
Hedley Lamarr: ...pledge allegiance...
Men: ...pledge allegiance...
Hedley Lamarr: ...to Hedley Lamarr...
Men: ...to Hedy Lamarr...
Hedley Lamarr: THAT'S *HEDLEY*!
Men: That's Hedley!
Hedley Lamarr: ...and to the evil...
Men: ...and to the evil...
Hedley Lamarr: ...for which he stands.
Men: ...for which he stands.
Hedley Lamarr: Now go do... that voodoo... that YOU do... SO WELL...!
[Men shoot at the sky in joy and ride off

OMG, I'm laughing so much the dog is giving me strange looks! This is one of our favorites and my fav line is so politically incorrect I dare not post it (but it involves the Irish). We have this dvd somewhere in the house so I need to dig it up and watch it. Thanks for the laughs.

Mary: This is one of my favorites for when I need a good snort laugh.
There are quite a few politically incorrect lines in that flick, but I love it anyway.

And glad I could make the dog stare at you.
