Mortimer Brewster: The name Brewster is code for Roosevelt.

Teddy Brewster: Code for Roosevelt?

Mortimer Brewster: Yes. Don't you see? Take the name Brewster, take away the B, and what have you got?

Teddy Brewster: Rooster!

Mortimer Brewster: Uh-huh. And what does a rooster do?

Teddy Brewster: Crows.

Mortimer Brewster: It crows. And where do you hunt in Africa?

Teddy Brewster: On the veldt!

Mortimer Brewster: There you are: crows - veldt!

Teddy Brewster: Ingenious! My compliments to the boys in the code department.
One of the many funny scenes from Capra's "Arsenic and Old Lace".

It's either this one or Bringing up Baby or Philadelphia Story or...damn he starred in way too many great films.

(If only they had made a PGW/Jeeves novel then...Cary Grant would have been an awesome Bertie Wooster.)
