Monday Movie Quote: FLETCH

Alan Stanwyck (Tim Matheson): If you reject the proposition, you keep the thousand – and your mouth shut.
Fletch (Chevy Chase): Does this proposition entail my dressing up as Little Bo Peep?
Alan Stanwyck: It’s nothing of a sexual nature, I assure you.
Fletch: Yeah, I assure you.
Alan Stanwyck: One thousand just to listen? I don’t see how you can pass that up, Mr…?
Fletch: Nugent. Ted Nugent.

 Before I go any further, let me make it clear that the use of FLETCH for the Monday Movie Quote is by no means a suggestion that it is a great film. I realize there are fans of Gregory McDonald that hate this film and would likely come looking for me.

No, FLETCH is not a great film, but it does have some good dialogue and makes use of one of Chevy Chase’s strengths (ok, his only strength): the ability to remain straight-faced no matter what.

I love the Little Bo Peep line and have used it more than once.
