Listed below are ten sets of famous lines from one of the funniest movies in the world. Your task is to determine at which line you know this movie. For example, if you guess it at number one, you are a member of the cult following and recite scenes by memory. If you still do not know by number 10, you need to see this movie. Extra credit if you can name the actor who said the lines.

  1. PUT THE CANDLE BACK!
  2. WERE WOLF! WHERE WOLF? THERE WOLF!
  3. MY WHAT BIG KNOCKERS? VHY SANK YOU DOCTOR.
  4. VOULD YOU LIKE SOME VARM MILK? SOME OVALTINE?
  5. ABBY SOMETHING. ABBY NORMAL.
  6. WHAT HUMP?
  7. SEDAGIVE?!?? SEDAGIVE?!??
  8. TAFFITA, DAHLING. TAFFTA. NO TONGUE
  9. YOU LITTLE ZIPPER NECK, YOU!
  10. OH SWEET MYSTERY OF LIFE I THINK I FOUND YOU…

Even though Hollywood thinks Blazing Saddles is his best work, I think Young Frankenstein by Mel Brooks is better. This month marks the 40TH Anniversary of the movie.  It took many takes to capture a scenes because of the laughter among the actors and crew.  It took 32 takes to shoot the scene where Madeline Kahn arrives at the castle and Marty Feldman falls in love with her and then tries to bit the head off of her fox fur.  Brooks finally bought 100 white handkerchiefs for the crew to stuff into their mouths to not laugh. The actors finally held it together and Brooks turned around to find a sea of white handkerchiefs.  Funny moments. He was my BOYFRIEND!!!

So here’s to Young Frankenstein for turning 40.  THAT’s Frankensteen!
