"Well to tell you the truth I don't know you well enough to tell you the truth."

All right so last week's quote was from Bedknobs and Broomsticks, written by Richard and Robert Sherman, performed by David Tomlinson. "As the words sell the tune and the moonbeam the moon..." Well done, amz for getting it right!

Now, for our next quote:

"Well, to tell you the truth, I don't know you well enough to tell you the truth."


  1. I believe its from Shall We Dance (one of my favorite Astaire Rogers movies)- Jerome Cowan to Edward Everett Horton.

  2. the 'bar' scene... EEH asks him 'Tell me the truth...How do I look to you?' after Fred convinces EEH he is seasick...

    My daughter's fav GandF...and arguably mine as well...we know pretty much the whole dialouge by heart... when 'Jeffrey Baird' (EEH) meets 'Cecil Flintridge' (Eric Blore) for the first time, the exchange between them cracks me up every time...

    Good one, Sally!
