Being a tragic multi-tasker, I’m watching The Apartment while I’m blogging. And I couldn’t let this food-related exchange between Baxter (Jack Lemmon) and Fran (the very spunky Shirley Maclaine) pass by.
FRAN: What’s a tennis racquet doing in the kitchen?
BAXTER: Tennis racquet? Oh, I remember! I was cooking myself an Italian dinner.
FRAN looks confused.
BAXTER: I used it to strain the spaghetti.
FRAN (thinks about it and then concedes): Why not?
BAXTER: As a matter of a fact, I’m a pretty good cook. Only I’m a lousy housekeeper.
