View Full Version : Can't tell your Capulets from your Montagues without a program
I vividly remember a Bugs Bunny cartoon where Bugs is hawking programs at a Shakespeare play and saying "Programs, programs. Getcher programs. Can't tell your Montagues from your Capulets without a program."
My googling is not turning up this line. Did I imagine it?

Well, not exactly. It's actually from Romeo and Juliet, by W. Shakespeare.
Act V, Scene LXVI.

Some googling around suggests the line might be "You can't tell a knight from a day without a program (https://www.google.com/search?q=montagues+capulets+without+a+program&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1#hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&q=%22bugs+bunny%22+%22knight+from+a+day+without+a+program%22&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=3531l3953l6l4422l2l2l0l0l0l0l188l360l0.2l2l0&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=vw&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&fp=3b6976d17058900d&biw=1002&bih=550)", which would imply maybe it's in this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JX1nl3LaUOY&feature=related) (which I haven't watched yet).

I dunno, doesn't sound like Bugs to tell you the truth. Sounds more like an Animaniacs type of gag. But I'm guessing.
