Marion Wormer or La Lopez? You decide.

[in the supermarket vegetable section]
Eric 'Otter' Stratton: Mine's bigger.
Marion Wormer: [looks questioningly at him]
Eric 'Otter' Stratton: My cucumber. It's bigger.
Eric 'Otter' Stratton: I think vegetables can be very sensuous, don't you?
Marion Wormer: No, vegetables are sensual. People are sensuous.
Eric 'Otter' Stratton: Right. Sensual. That's what I meant. My name's Eric Stratton. People call me Otter.
Marion Wormer: My name's Marion. People call me Mrs. Wormer.
Eric 'Otter' Stratton: Oh, we have a Dean Wormer at Faber.
Marion Wormer: How interesting. I have a husband named Dean Wormer at Faber. Still want to show me your cucumber?

Update: for those of you who are too young to remember Animal House, here's a picture of Mrs. Wormer for comparison.

Whats that all about? Was she talking to her husband and didn't pick up on it?

MPB, have you never seen the classic movie, Animal House? Ah, yes, you are young. :-) Otter is a college student at the same institution where this lady's husband is the dean. Otter hits on her without realizing that her husband is the dean. Classic moment. I only added the quotes because Jennifer Lopez, with the hair and dress, reminded me of Mrs. Wormer from Animal House. I'm adding a small picture of her to my post so you can decide.

Ahhhhhh, yeah i've seen it, a few times infact. Just didn't know it was from that.

Okay, I had no idea either -- but I think J. Lo is definitely channeling that Mrs. Wormer chick ...

lol, i like! never seen the movie but i'll have to add it to my too watch list...

And you can't watch the "edited for television" version, either. It has to be the full film-- otherwise, they cut out half the funny stuff!

There are two movies on this planet that have been ripped off for quotes more than any other movie (well, at least in the US for people ages 30-80?)-- Caddyshack is one, and Animal House is the other. A definite must see.

I've only ever seen it on tv. Might go hire it on the weekend then and watch the full thing.

I choose to flirt or have sex with marion wormer. To me she is sexier than la lopez. Mature and sexy thats the kind of women i love.
