Monkey Business (1952) Barnaby Fulton, a chemist, is working on a youth formula for a chemical company by testing it on chimps. His very understanding wife, Edwina, helps him by being very supportive. His boss' secretary helps by displaying her legs, which are wearing Barnaby's indestructible hose. When Esther, the chimp, mixes her own formula, and it gets in the water cooler in the lab, the fun begins! Barnaby goes back in age twice, as does Edwina. Wild rides in a hot sports car, roller skating, jive dancing, and scalping Edwina's childhood boyfriend, Hank Entwhistle, all ensue. Barnaby and Edwina live happily ever after, supervising Esther's formula-making.

  • [to his secretary, whose assets are in other areas] Oliver Oxley: Find someone to type this. Lois Laurel: Oh, Mr. Oxley. Can't I try again? Oliver Oxley: No, it's very important. Better find someone to type it for you.
  • Oliver Oxley: [Miss Laurel opens door] I told you I didn't want any calls. Lois Laurel: Mr. Oxley, Dr. Linten's on the phone. I told him you were busy but he says it's very important. Oliver Oxley: Who is he? Lois Laurel: He... Barnaby: He's my new assistant. Oliver Oxley: Oh, yes. Just a moment, Miss Laurel. Find someone to type this. Lois Laurel: Oh, Mr. Oxley, can't I try again? Oliver Oxley: No, it's very important. Better find somebody to type it for you. Lois Laurel: Yes, sir. [Walks to door and closes it] Oliver Oxley: Anybody can type. [picks up telephone receiver] Oliver Oxley: Who did she say was calling? Barnaby: Dr. Linten. Oliver Oxley: Oh, yes. [Speaks to Dr. Linten through receiver] Oliver Oxley: Yes, Dr. Lintel? Yes? I know he's not there. Dr. Fulton is here with me. Ye - what? Really? What sort of reactions? Why, that's amazing! We'll be right there. Come on, Barnaby. You've done better work than you know. [Both run to door. Mr. Oxley opens door] Oliver Oxley: Come along, Miss Laurel. It's amazing. Barnaby: What's amazing? Oliver Oxley: Dr. Whatchamacallit says one of your monkeys broke loose. We've got to hurry.
  • Lois Laurel: [at her secretrial desk, responding to Barnaby's remark that she is at work early] Mr. Oxley's been complaining about my punctuation, so I'm careful to get here before nine.
  • Barnaby: Aw, c'mon; let's scalp him! Little Indian: No; first, we gotta do a war dance!
  • Barnaby: [Lois is exposing a beautiful leg to show Barnaby the "new non-rip plastic stockings" he invented. Mr. Oxley enters and is startled] Miss Laurel was just showing me her acetates.
