The clip Declaring a war from Duck Soup (1933) with Groucho Marx I helped Mrs. Teasdale with the invitations. His Excellency, Rufus T. Firefly! Hail, hail Freedonia Land of the brave and free Gloria, I waited for years. I can't be put off any longer. I love you, I want you! Can't you see I'm at your feet? When you get through with her feet, you can start on mine. If that isn't an insult, I don't know what is. Gloria, I love you. I realize how lonely you are. Can't we go someplace where we can be by ourselves? What can this mug offer you? Wealth and family? I can't give you wealth, but... we can have a little family of our own. Oh, Rufus! All I can offer you is a "roof-us" over your head. Your Excellency, I really don't know what to say. I wouldn't know what to say either if I was in your place. Maybe you can suggest something. As a matter of fact, you do suggest something. To me you suggest a baboon. What? I'm sorry I said that. It isn't fair to the rest of the baboons. This man's conduct is inexcusable! Gentlemen! Gentlemen! I did not come here to be insulted! That's what you think. You swine! Come again? You worm! Once more. You upstart! That's it! Touche! Mrs. Teasdale, I'm afraid this regrettable occurrence may plunge our countries into war. Oh, this is terrible! I've said enough. I'm a man of few words. I'm a man of one word: scram! A man doesn't live who can call a Firefly an upstart. Why, the Mayflower was full of Fireflys... and a few horseflies too. The Fireflys were on the upper deck and the horseflies were on the Fireflys. Good day, my sweet. Oh, your Excellency, I must speak to you! I'll see you at the theater tonight. I'll hold your seat 'til you get there.
