Chico Trentino: I want a full detailed report of your investigation.
Chico: All right, I tell you. Monday we watch Firefly's house, but he no come out. He wasn't home. Tuesday we go to the ball game, but he fool us. He no show up. Wednesday he go to the ball game, and we fool him. We no show up. Thursday was a double header. Nobody show up. Friday it rained all day. There was no ball game so we stayed home and we listen to it over the radio.

All material on this site is used without permission. .wav sounds (except advantage.wav) were sampled with my own equipment from the MCA Universal videotape releases of the Paramount Pictures Animal Crackers (1930), Horse Feathers(1932), and Duck Soup (1933), and the MGM Picture A Night at the Opera (1935). The file advantage.wav was sent to me by a Marx Bros. fan. The song, "Lydia the Tattooed Lady", was sampled with my own equipment from the MGM Picture At the Circus (1939), as shown on Cinemax.

For more information about the Marx Brothers and their films, I strongly recommend each of these books, from which pictures, text, and ideas were taken to help construct this site. Be warned that they can be difficult to find. Your best bet is a secondhand bookstore.
