Goodbye, Mr. Curtis


Margie: Edna, weren't you sad to hear that Tony Curtis passed away? He was a man's man and what I call a real movie star. Hollywood just doesn't make them like him anymore. So charming and handsome. That's what a movie star is.

Edna: I was very sad, as well you know. I was sitting right next to you when we saw it on the television, you ninny. My first husband, Joe, always reminded me of Tony Curtis. He had the charisma and good looks just like Mr. Curtis; my Joe was just a dream walking. Too bad he had a wandering eye for the ladies, also just like Mr. Curtis.

You know who I feel really bad for? That Miss Jamie Lee. She doesn't have either of her parents any more, poor thing. We should send her a nice card.

Margie: Lord a mercy, sister, Joe looked just like Mr. Potato Head. The wandering eye was because he got tired of looking at you every day.

Yes, that sweet Jamie Lee would like to get a card from us. Maybe it would make her feel better if we told her we buy her Activia stuff.

Edna: If we want to make her feel better, we shouldn't lie to the girl. We should just say that we admired her father and we're sorry for her loss. You always want to make things more complicated then they have to be, sister.

I had no idea he was still alive (well, before he died a few days ago). He was gorgeous, esp back in the '50s.

He had a smile that just melted your heart. An incredible actor.

He was a hunk. A bit of a playboy, maybe, but weren't most of the guys back then...maybe not Paul Newman - or else he kept it pretty quiet.
