Baravelli (through window of speakeasy's door): "Who are you?" Professor Wagstaff: "I'm fine, thanks, who are you?" Baravelli: "I'm fine too, but you can't come in unless you give the password." Professor Wagstaff: "Well, what is the password?" Baravelli: "Aw, no. You gotta tell me. Hey, I tell you what I do. I give you three guesses. It's the name of a fish." Professor Wagstaff: "Is it Mary?" Baravelli: "Ha-ha. That's-a no fish." Professor 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." (cont'd)

Professor Wagstaff (trying to guess the speakeasy's password): "I got it. Haddock." Baravelli: "That's-a funny. I gotta haddock, too." Professor Wagstaff: "What do you take for a haddock?" Baravelli: "Well-a, sometimes I take-a aspirin, sometimes I take-a Calamel." Professor 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's-a matter, you no understand English? You can't come in here unless you say, 'Swordfish.' Now I'll give you one more guess." Professor Wagstaff: "...Swordfish, swordfish... I think I got it. Is it 'swordfish'?" Baravelli: "Hah. That's-a it. You guess it." Professor Wagstaff: "Pretty good, eh?"

The opening musical sequence and corny humor was so bad I nearly quit the film, but I hate doing that, so I stuck it out. So glad I did. Man, I was laughing my you know what off! Harpo was the funniest, producing random hot cups of coffee from his trenchcoat, axes, baby pigs, etc.; riding around in a garbage can chariot... Chico's next, then Groucho. (Poor Zeppo.) Talented musicians (like The Stooges) and absolutely hilarious. A ninety year old comedy that still holds up today. Says a lot.
