Movie Quotes from Mr. Deeds Goes to Town: Quotes from the movie Mr. Deeds Goes to Town
1.About my playing the tuba. Seems like a lot of fuss has been made about that. If, if a man’s crazy just because he plays the tuba, then somebody’d better look into it, because there are a lot of tuba players running around loose. ‘Course, I don’t see any harm in it. I play mine whenever I want to concentrate. That may sound funny to some people, but everybody does something silly when they’re thinking. For instance, the judge here is, is an O-filler. 2.A what?
1.An O-filler. You fill in all the spaces in the O’s with your pencil. I was watching him. That may make you look a little crazy, Your Honor, just, just sitting around filling in O’s, but I don’t see anything wrong, ’cause that helps you think. Other people are doodlers. 2.’Doodlers’!? 1.Uh, that’s a word we made up back home for people who make foolish designs on paper when they’re thinking: it’s called doodling. Almost everybody’s a doodler; did you ever see a scratchpad in a telephone booth? People draw the most idiotic pictures when they’re thinking. Uh, Dr. von Hallor here could probably think up a long name for it, because he doodles all the time.
1.Do you see him very often? 2.Most every day. 3.Sometimes twice. 4.Must we have the echo?

2.That’s what the two policemen said, sir.
1.What two policemen?
2.The ones who brought you home, sir. They said you and another gentleman kept walking up and down the street shouting ‘back to nature! Clothes are a blight on civilization! Back to nature!’
1.He’s still pixilated. 2.He sure is!
1.Now, uh, Jane, a little while ago you said I was pixilated. Do you still think so? 2.Why, you’ve always been pixilated, Longfellow.
3.Always. 1.That’s fine, hm, I guess maybe I am. And now tell me something Jane, who else in Mandrake Falls is pixilated? 2.Why, everybody in Mandrake Falls is pixilated — except us. 3.Mm-hmm.
1.Now, um, heh, now about the Faulkner sisters. That’s kind of funny. I mean, about Mr. Cedar going all the way to Mandrake Falls to bring them here. Do you mind if I talk to them? 2. Not at all.
Even his hands are oily.
Mr. Deeds, there has been a great deal of damaging testimony against you. Your behavior, to say the least, has been most strange. But in the opinion of the court, you are not only sane, but you’re the sanest man that ever walked into this courtroom!
People here are funny. They work so hard at living they forget how to live.
So you see, everybody does silly things to help them think. Well, I play the tuba.

Your Honor, what she is saying has no bearing on the case. I object!
All famous people aren’t big people.
Why everybody in Mandrake falls is pixilated, except us.
