Post Favorite Part/ Line/ Song
Hey, I just wondered what everyone's favorite part, line, and song was.

I think my favorite part is Be Like the Bluebird. It's really funny. But, my favorite song I think is Anything Goes. And, my favorite line is when Reno sings "When grandmama whose age is eighty in night clubs is getting matey with gigalos, Anything Goes" haha, I crack up everytime I hear that.

So, what's your favorite line?

"I've got hot pants for you!"

and my favourite song is Buddie Beware, but there's too many great bits to write down here.

"I have Hot Pants For you" is definately the shows best line.

I played Hope so personally i love "Its Delovely" (although it wasnt originally in Anything Goes) .

Porter is a genius..far too many great songs to , "Buddy Beware""Easy Too Love"

and all the songs added form other Poter shows like Freindship..I want To Row on the Crew" and "Goodbye Little Dream Goodbye".

My favorite song to watch was "Friendship" because the choreography in my production just made it such a fun number.

My favorite song that I was in was "Take Me Back To Manhattan" because I don't know why. "Blow Gabrielle Blow" was really fun too, but there were so many people dancing on the stage at once, it was a little crazy.

My favorite line was when Mrs. Harcourt asks Billy if he's Spanish or French and Billy answers "Neither. I am... Chinchillian!" But that's because I have an inside joke with one of my friends about chinchillas and another joke about the actor that was Billy.

The "I have hot pants for you" line I think really is the best.

I don't know what my favorite part of the show is. Hmmm... I'll have to think about that.

"When you hear that Lady Mendel standing up
now does a hand spring, landing up on her toes!
Anything Goes!"

Is that from one of the versions I haven't seen? I did the one with Bonnie, and I saw the one with whats her face instead. I didn't notice that line, though.

Another scene I like is the entire hot pants scene. The actors in our play made that scene hysterically funny. Ah, I miss this show.

the line is in the original version of the show. unfortunatlely alot of great lines and lyrics were cut from the original 1934 version to the 1962.

I think in general the hot pants scene is one of the funniest...it slayed the audience everytime, too.

It's not a "line", but I loved the part where Billy tells Mrs. Harcourt the ship is sinking, and she comes on with her life jacket and all of her jewlery...don't know why that's so funny...but it made me laugh every time.

I think almost all of the lyrics in Anything Goes are sheer brilliance. You're the Top is SO clever.

I'm pretty biased because I played Erma, but I love Buddy Beware! Sultry and sassy!

Porter's internal rhymes always excite me..such as:

"on that magical night
when the stars by their light
give mystery
to the sleeping lagoon
while a haunting guitar
not too near
not to far
gaily hums away
strums away
a titilating tune!"
