I'm working on creating my own film production company, but the problem is that interferes too much with another passion: ballroom dancing. (I just love a good tango!) I'm a writer, but also have done programming and other types of work.

@GorchestopherH: I think that'd count. I'm trying to find out if he does this whenever he can, or if it's only SW.

@DVK: No. It's "Han shot." Not first, since Greedo never shot at all, so Han didn't shoot first. He shot and that was the end of it.

Cross posting is discouraged. You've posted this exact same question here and on SciFi and Fantasy. It really should be posted to only one site, not both.

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
As a competitive ballroom dancer, I get a lot of big band music when I'm on the dance floor. Just love it. I'll have to check that out! Thanks!

I haven't seen much of Jerry Lewis, but as a competitive ballroom dancer, I was interested in his fight scene (that was also comic) since it was almost like a dance, but there is no real plot and the whole spy thing didn't even start until about 10 minutes or so before the line in question. I guess a Jerry Lewis fan might want to see it, but otherwise, it's plotless, nothing memorable in the writing and pointless. I agree there's a chance the use of the line in Sad Sack may be a parody -- which makes me wonder where it was originally used. But searching produced no other references.

By the way, any chance it was used elsewhere? Maybe Sad Sack used it as a reference?

I wish you had posted that about 50 minutes earlier -- I just got through watching Sad Sack. (It's quite lacking in many ways!) I had thought it was on normal Netflix, but saw it was on streaming. I had intended to watch or listen while packing up for an event tomorrow, but was tired and sat through it all. (It wasn't worth it!) On Netflix, that line is about 1:20 (as in 1 hour, 20 minutes) in, and it's repeated within 2 minutes and repeated again at about 1:34 or so by another character. So that's it - thanks for your help! (Just wish it was early enough so I didn't watch that movie!)

@GlennFerrell: So you're sure it's not The Sad Sack? I can verify it is NOT Arsenic and Old Lace. I just watched that last night.

@Advicer: I really wish I knew more about it. I just finished watching Arsenic and the Old Lace because a friend said it was in there. While I enjoyed the movie, as AidanO pointed out, I can't watch all 112 movies he made! (A friend also tells me it was a movie he was in with James Cagney -- everyone has a different suggestion!)

@Nobby: Definitely not The Maltese Falcon! I just watched that a few months ago.
