party poker

More <x>? Uh-huh! More <y>? Uh-huh, uh-huh!

[Chilly Willy “Half Baked Alaska” (April 1, 1965); <x> = “pancakes”; <y> = “syrup” or “butter”]

<x> and <y> overload. Chilly tries to load up on an incredible amount of overpriced breakfast foodstuff, but can’t pay the bill. “Uh-huh”s spoken with falsetto. An expression of insatiable greed. It’s strange, this is just about my only memory of Chilly Willy actually being funny ... then I watched it, and it wasn’t funny anymore. This is sort of like remembering that Speed Racer was gripping drama.

Smedley: At your service boy. What’ll it be? One stack of hotcakes?
Chilly: Uh-huh.
Smedley: With plenty of butter.
Chilly: Uh-huh.
Smedley: Lots of syrup?
Chilly: Uh-huh.
Smedley: One stack of hotcakes, comin’ up. Nice?
Chilly: Nice.
Smedley: You like?
Chilly: I like.
Smedley: More butter?
Chilly: More butter.
Smedley: More syrup?
Chilly: More syrup.
Smedley: Nice?
Chilly: Very nice.
Smedley: Plenty butter?
Chilly: Plenty butter.
Smedley: Plenty syrup?
Chilly: Plenty syrup.
Smedley: Good?
Chilly: Very good.
Smedley: You like?
Chilly: I like.
Smedley: Okay?
Chilly: Okay.
Smedley: More butter?
Chilly: Thank you.
Smedley: You’re welcome.
