The Incredible Mr. Limpet (1964)
Don Knotts: Henry Limpet
Henry Limpet : I wish, I wish I were a fish.
Henry Limpet : Say listen, I have an idea. Why don't we all go over to the university tomorrow for Professor Hoffmeyer's lecture!
George Stickel : ...Lecture?
Henry Limpet : Yeah, on decapods of the genera padurus! You know George he's eh, he's gonna talk about the eh, mating habits of the shellfish, eh heh heh. It's a little risque, sorta for adults only.
George Stickel : Uh, I'll just pass on that action Henry, I got a weak heart.
Henry Limpet : Doesn't it kind of give you a thrill of hope, George?
George Stickel : Hope for what, Henry?
Henry Limpet : Well, with the war in Europe and new weapons being invented all the time, why, what if men were actually foolish enough to destroy themselves completely? Then, you see, the fish in the ocean would develop into a new race of men, and, well, this time they might turn out better, you see?
