Why do you feel you have to pass for someone with 20/20 vision when you're blind as a bat?
I don't feel. I have to pass.
Yes, you do. It's a sickness in your brain, just like if you were trying to pass for white.

Just saw this movie again recently, and it still gets me laughing like crazy. This was the first Pryor/Wilder movie I ever saw, when it first came out on video, and it eventually got me to the video store several more times to see their other movies. Although all of them got me laughing (especially Silver Streak), this one was by far the funniest. It's definitely an underrated movie. I only wish Pryor and Wilder had done more together.
