Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

...you can learn from:

Cabaret (1972)

Sally: I saw a film the other day about syphilis. Ugh!
It was too awful. I couldn't let a man touch me for a week.
Is it true you can get it from kissing?
Fritz: Oh, yes. And your king, Henry VIII, got it
from Cardinal Wolsey whispering in his ear.
Natalia: That is not, I believe, founded in fact. But
from kissing, most decidedly; and from towels, and from cups.
Sally: And of course screwing.
Natalia: Screw-ing, please?
Sally: Oh, uh... fornication.
Natalia: For-ni-ca-tion?
Sally: Oh, uh, Bri, darling, what is the German word?
Brian: I don't remember.
Sally: Oh... um... oh yes!
Brian: Oh, no...
Sally: Bumsen!
Natalia: Oh.
Brian: That would be the one German word
you pronounce perfectly.
Sally: Well, I ought to. I spent the entire afternoon
bumsening like mad with this ghastly old producer
who promised to get me a contract.

Happy 70, Michael York!
