"Fave Marx Bros moments"
 
   So many moments, but the first one I thought of was this one.
They were so good at the "slow burn," taking more than 5 seconds to let it all sink in.
Good quality video, too:

   Marx Bros are definitely superior to 3 Stooges. There is a 1-man play about Groucho that floats around. I have seen 3 versions of it. If it came around tomorrow I'd go see it again.

Remember.....you're only as old as the women that you feel.

There are a few good one liners by many actors from that era.
Groucho delivered many, my favorite was a lady saying "I have never been so insulted in my life."
Groucho "Well you should get out more often."

Hat check girl "Goodness Miss West where did you get all those diamonds?'
May West "Dear goodness had nothing to do with it."

W.C. Fields when he kicked a little kid in the butt. You could never do that today.

>Groucho delivered many,

It's one thing to have great lines in movies, delivered with perfection.

It's quite another to BE that guy, BE that Groucho in real life. Life imitates Art or opposite???

The only contemporary comic I think is as quick as Groucho in one-on-one is Steven Cobert.

This is by no means a great compilation of Groucho on TV (there are many full episodes of his show on youtube) but you can see how he works it:

Quite possibly the greatest assembly of one-liners ever on film. Poor Margaret Dumont. Wonder how much therapy she got after doing this scene with Groucho.....or any scene for that matter. As she was often on the receiving end of his razor wit and acerbic tongue. This starts a little slow....if you want the classic part, forward to 1:50.
