I regularly run across a famous quotation from the 1934 detective comedy The Thin Man, starring William Powell and Myrna Loy, where they play a couple that solve mysteries while drinking plenty of cocktails and exchanging witty banter.
The quote is:
Nick Charles: The important thing is the rhythm. Always have rhythm in your shaking. Now a Manhattan you shake to fox-trot time, a Bronx to two-step time, a dry martini you always shake to waltz time.
A classic to be sure, and just one of many fantastic lines from the first of six movies in The Thin Man series. While looking around YouTube, I came across this collection of clips that left me grinning from ear to ear. Check it out.
I'll leave you with one more funny quotation from the film, that wasn't featured in the previous video:
Reporter: Well, can't you tell us anything about the case? Nick Charles: Yes, it's putting me way behind in my drinking.
