OK had to google Ruprect. Actually watched the clip from Oklahoma Oklahoma Oklahoma. I have never seen the movie. I like Steve Martin and Michael Cain, maybe I'll rent it.

Doc said...

HA!
Here is my memory of how one of the Ruprect scenes went:

(Older brother, Miss Trumble and Ruprect are sitting at the dinner table, Ruprect is holding a trident and wearing an eye patch)

Reprect: "May I go to the bathroom Sir?"

Older Brother: "Why certainly Ruprect"

(Ruprect sits there and slowly a smile comes onto his face)

Ruprect: "Thaaaank you!"
