Rest in Peace good lady.

Mrs. Peacock was a man?
 
2013-07-30 08:47:41 PM  
Was it death by lead pipe in the conservatory?

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Mrs. Peacock was a man?


Dammit, beat me to it. Ok, I'll go with my second choice;

"But your souls are in danger!"

"Our LIVES are in danger, ya beatnik!"

RIP funny lady

Mrs. Peacock, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
 
2013-07-30 08:53:14 PM  
Did she die by death?
 
2013-07-30 08:53:18 PM  
Let's not forget "FM"

Death is just a red hrerring
 
2013-07-30 08:54:22 PM  
Murder by Death is one of my favorite movies.  :(
 
2013-07-30 08:55:21 PM  
How they roped her into that awful TV show is a mystery because she was generally awesome in anything she was in.

elvisaintdead: Let's not forget "FM"


I had forgotten! IIRC, she actually opens the movie?
 
2013-07-30 08:57:45 PM  
Murder By Death is one of my go-to movies when I need a good laugh.

Man, Murder by Death is under rated.  Peter Falk doing his best Bogart is a sight to see.

First Private Kooch-a-cock-a-kee-kee, and now her.  It's the "Private Benjamin" curse!

-Which way are the rooms?
Right through there. But I wouldn't go in there if I were you.
-What you are going to do, call the cops?
I don't have to. You'd be busting in on the Chief of Police just up the hall.

Great little countess, that Billie...

There's nothing on her until '46, when she was picked up in El Paso for trying to smuggle a truckload of rich white Americans across the border into Mexico to pick melons.
 
2013-07-30 09:07:31 PM  
She was a jolly good fellow

The first film I saw in a movie theater.
 
2013-07-30 09:12:45 PM  
I thought she died years ago. She was a funny lady.
 
2013-07-30 09:16:39 PM  
What was she afraid of, a fate worse than death?
 
2013-07-30 09:19:23 PM  
And monkey's brains, though popular in Cantonese cuisine, are not often to be found in the afterlife.

/good night, funny lady

Everything alright?

Yep, two corpses, everything's fine.

No, just death. Isn't that enough?

Looks like the brandy was poisoned after all.

Well, someone's got to break the ice, and it might as well be me.I mean, I'm used to being a hostess; it's part of my husband's work,and it's always difficult when a group of new friends meet togetherfor the first time to get acquainted, so I'm perfectly prepared to startthe ball rolling . . . I mean, I have absolutely no idea what we're doinghere, or what I'm doing here, or what this place is about, but I amdetermined to enjoy myself and I'm very intrigued and oh, my, thissoup's delicious isn't it? I watched this movie about 50 times one summer. By far my favorite movie.
