Say what?

"Wharf yarns and spoon drift"!? Damn, I've got to go brush up on my Carousel.


It's the Carrie and Jigger scene in Act II... so you can look it up. The line is actually:

Carrie: Now look here Mr. Craigin, I ain't got no time for no wharf yarns er spoondrift.


If you get that right when you perform it, I will personally stand up and applaud. (Thus embarassing the bejeezus out of you, just as planned.)
