"Abby someone... Abby Normal"

young frankenstein

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Igor, would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?
Igor: And you won't be angry?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.
Igor: Abby someone.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby someone. Abby who?
Igor: Abby Normal.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby Normal?
Igor: I'm almost sure that was the name.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?
[shakes and grabs him]
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME?

You judge for yourself if perhaps I and many of my gender might be Abby in this situation.

I have to admit, I have finally found an action figure that I feel I must buy.  Legolas and Prince Caspian were tempting, but Edward Cullen is irresistible.  I wonder if he comes scented like Strawberry Shortcake and Lemon Meringue?  If so, I'm sure there will be a lot of women found lying on their floors passed out from a lack of breathing with smiles on their faces.  (That's the effect Edward, a very good smelling (and looking)  vampire, sometimes seemed to have on Bella.  This added info is in case you the reader of this blog is unfamiliar with or unaware of the large percentage of women unhealthily obsessed with the Twilight book series and now movie).

Edward Action Figure

I'm waiting to see if they will make a Jacob action figure in which case they would have to include a wolf suit.  Maybe even a bowl marked "Fido"

Yes, this is all very "Abby Normal."  I'm guessing the subject of Edward has had a hand in guiding some therapy sessions where men are in attendance. 

Doctor:  Don't worry George, she'll be back and there are no such things as vampires.  Perhaps she's just trying to boost the film's profits as a way to support the efforts of a budding film company.

Patient:  But she's seen the movie like 5 times already! 

Doctor:  How many times did you go to see Lord of the Rings or Star Wars.  I'm sure you don't really believe in Elves and Wookiees, now do you?

Patient:  Don't you?

HAHAHA!! That was hillarious. I got a good laugh from this post! You're a great writer :-). Hunter and I are both fans--so therapy hasn't been too brutal :-). Love it!

So funny! I am soooo glad the movie is coming out soon on DVD. I'm feeling deprived and being poor and hubby-less, I can't go to a theater. I really want to watch it again!

Very funny Becky and where do they have those action figures ? Maybe I can convince Chandler that vampires are as cool as star wars. I would at least need an excuse to buy one. :)

Wookies aren't real? Oh my goodness, I was laughing SO hard at this post. I love it!

I can't believe there is an Edward action figure.

I've seen the movie twice.

Okay, I am going to have to find out where I can pick one of those up!

Okay, my side split at the imagery of all the women passed out from inhaling his strawberry shortcake-like smell -Ahhh, thanks for the laughs!

Merry Christmas!
