One of my favorite scenes from "Young Frankenstein" starring Gene Wilder, Terri Garr, Peter Boyle, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman and Cloris Leachman.
Mel Brooks directed this now classic spoof of the novel Frankenstein and is based on the premise that Frankenstein has passed away and left behind his work to his grandson who also happens to be a neurosurgeon. When he arrives in Transylvania he discovers his hunchback assistant, "Igor", a hot lab assistant, Inga (Terri Garr) and the maid, Frau Blucher-iiihhhl. Dr. Frankenstein finds the work of his grandfather's written in his journals and attempts to recreate his experiments. However, the assistant Igor, destroys the brain of the genius Frankenstein wanted by dropping it accidentally. In haste, Igor quickly grabs the brain of an abnormal human. When Dr. Frankenstein inquires to Igor who's brain he gave him, it goes as follows:
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein discovers his creation has come to life but it is appears to be unintelligent. The monster has caused serious problems in the lab as it escapes. He's being comforted by his assistant Inga as he calls over Igor, calms down a bit for Inga and begins the dialogue.
Dr. F: "Would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?"
Igor: "And you wont' be angry?"
Dr. F: "I will NOT-be-angry."
Dr. F : "Abby Someone..?"
Igor: [Nods with an enthusiastic positive manner while looking up as if he is recollecting]
Dr. F: "Abby Who?"
Igor: "Abby Normal"
Dr. F: [Pauses with hand on chin, looks down and to his left and] replies a little louder to Igor, "Abby Normal?"
Igor: "I'm all most sure that was the name."
Dr. F: [chuckles heartily and smiles and then slowly stands looking at Igor],
"Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into an seven and a half foot long, 54 inch wide... [short pause as he begins to choke Igor], GORILLA!? [picks up Igor by the neck and chokes him] IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME!?"
