> Dr. Fine? Really? 'Fine'?! First thought it a wordplay alias then was reminded of a movie comedy "Paging Dr. Fine... something or other... Dr. Fine".

It's from a Three Stooges short (a true fan could tell you which one): "Paging Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard. Paging Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard." Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard.

"The grassroots support from the SG message board has been fantastic. Those fans have managed to keep Spider-Girl alive. They never gave up on the title. Not even when Marvel canceled it and told me there was no hope of ever bringing it back. Spider-Girl lives because of her fans!"


--Tom DeFalco

its from the Stooge short Men In Black (was oscar nominated at the time too:) )

They were bumbling doctors who of course graduated lowest in their class but the hospital director states as long as they dedicated themselves to the cause of "For Duty and Humanity!" they would have a job.

This was soon followed by hilarious antics and the PA System blaring

"Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard) Room 66, 72, 83! Dr. Howard Room 66, Dr. Fine 72, Dr. Howard 83!"

At the end they tear open the PA system find the device constantly calling for them and pull out guns and shoot it. The device calls over exclaming "Ohhh they got me!" They raise their guns in salute proclaiming "For Duty and Humanity!"

Also a hilarious part of the short was when they were in surgery and Moe was askign for Cotton. Curly stands there, Moe says; "Cotton!...COTTON!" the Curly goes to get some cotton from the shelf...Moe asks for the cotton again..doesnt get any then turns and yells to Curly "COTTON!" upon which Curly splats him in the face with it \:\)

A classic!

Now back to your Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman thread! \:\)
