Are you Professor Wagstaff of Huxley College or Professor Huxley of Wagstaff College? In my day I went to three colleges and fooled around with three college widows. I my day a college widow stood for something...in fact she stood for plenty. Anything further father? Anything further father that can't be right, isn't it anything father further? So Baravelli, what would you like to play football? Well first we'd like a football.

Baravelli: Who are you?
Wagstaff: I'm fine thanks, who are you?
Baravelli: I'm fine too, but you can't come in unless you give the password.
Wagstaff: Well, what is the password?
Baravelli: Aw, no! You gotta tell me. Hey, I tell what I do. I give you three guesses. It's the name of a fish.
Wagstaff: Is it Mary?
Baravelli: Ha-ha. That's-a no fish.
Wagstaff: She isn't, well, she drinks like one. Let me see. Is it sturgeon?
Baravelli: Hey you crazy! Sturgeon, he's a doctor cuts you open when-a you sick. Now I give you one more chance.
Wagstaff: I got it! Haddock!
Baravelli: That's-a funny. I gotta haddock, too.
Wagstaff: What do you take for a haddock?
Baravelli: Well-a, sometimes I take-a aspirin, sometimes I take-a Calamel.
Wagstaff: Say, I'd walk a mile for a Calamel.
Baravelli: You mean chocolate calamel. I like that too, but you no guess it. Hey, what-sa matter, you no understand English? You can't come in here unless you say 'swordfish.' Now I'll give you one more guess.
Wagstaff: (to himself: Swordfish. Swordfish) I think I got it. Is it 'swordfish'?
Baravelli: Hah! That's-a it! You guess it!
Wagstaff: Pretty good, eh?

You want to hear me sing a few bars of "whatever it is, I'm against it?" After my surgery, I knew I would be housebound with a catheter for about 10 days so I stocked up on some of my favorite books, music, and DVDs to help pass the time. The Marx Brothers DVD boxed set is the one I kept going back to. Really helped me pass the time and kept my mind off waiting for the pathology report. When I first logged into this site, I tried to use Rufus T. Firefly as my alias, but someone had already claimed it so I went with Prof. Quincy Adams Wagstaff. Thanks for getting that reference. As time passes, I encounter fewer and fewer Marx Brothers fans. Certainly not many that are my age - 56. Thanks for the laughs. I could watch this movie every week.
