I preferred his immortal:
Hoping this doesn’t doublepost…
[Chico]He’s got a snake[/Chico]
Alternately, the entire “phone conversation” he has in Duck Soup. Excellent use of horns and facial expressions.

“If a mockingbird, could sing like you, it’d sing much sweeter than it do” (might not have the lyrics right)
It’s actually “If the nightingale could sing like you, they’d sing much sweeter than they do.” But that’s pretty much the same.
"Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking . . . "

I liked his Maurice Chevalier impersonation.
He was a horny devil.
You know, he did write an entire book, Harpo Speaks. The cover drawing is a cartoon of him unzipping his mouth. I haven’t read it, but I’m sure it’s full of good lines.
To be technical - and realistic, Rowland Barber wrote Harpo Speaks, but I’m pretty sure that Harpo probably contributed something to it.
