at least you got the asshole part right.



at what I was saying is that I am caertain the line was meant to be in the movie. To say, it wasn't a happy accident or somehting like an accidental shot containing a boom mic. Now whether this was arrived at through specific dialogue in the script (which I thought it was since I had not read the script and was misinterperting PTA's commentary) or wether through a situation where Macy played with the lines and PTA then chose to keep it. As for him being in distress, I think that for that line to work as it does in the finished film, there must be a sense that his character could make a slip of the tongue and it be believeable. I think for his character, seeing his wife in that position sufficiently puts him in a state of distress where it is believeable. And also believeable that Ricky J would not respond to the slip.

No one is trying to start rumors, this is a discussion group. And there is no need to ascert your internet dominance in such a way. Don't take it so seriously.

Oh and thanks for the film history lesson, jeez lighten up.


Hey man.. Thats fine if you want to believe that there is a real motive in Little Bill to stammer arround about the line, but you completely avoided the whole reason I replied as I did, and that was becuase you said you were "certian".. not almost certian or "i thought", you were certian that the line was as it is on the film.

Furthermore I wasn't implying you were starting a rumor just simply stating that while posting on these message boards, if someone is unsure of something while posting they sometimes just fill in the space with something they think is true but don't note that they are going off of a feeling, which happens to parallel what you posted yourself.

You have not seen the beginning of my internet prowess.

I guess this thread can be locked now.

PLEASE lock...this subject is so damn OLD....I don't know why any PTA hardcore fans couldn't read an article about the screw-up...i dunno, did he mention it on the commentary track?....jees, I think it's a good joke that happened by accident and was kept because Bill Macy couldn't say it right...wow, I type like I know him...anyhow...let's keep this going...

Did Sandler say 'food' instead of 'good' by accident, and they did some improv to cover up his mistake? HmGeeIWonder
NO!!!!

If he's this upset by these questions, I'd hate to see how he replies when somebody asks an anti dumb frog question.

Hell, if you guys want to lock this, that is fine with me. 82 made sure the exact truth was answered of my line in question. I think that was important.

I think I royally fucked the karma on  this thread with my "very food" misquote from the beginning......sigh

It's a valid thread, and I feel the ass in his cock line was beautiful, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

It just makes Macy seem so flustered that he can't form a cogent sentence.  He knows what to say, but fucks it up because he's fed up with her shit.

It's well documented that the denim tree was grown in parts of the ancient Italian peninsula.

haha damn, when I went to see PTA in Rochester, I just laid back and shook my head, rolled my eyes....although I did so as violently as possible! I was just sick of the hackneyed questions at that point, even though I didn't have any new ones myself.

did you see PTAs face when she asked that?  his head just kinda dropped, and then he was probably just like "ah, what the fuck, I'll be nice."
