...with members of the opposite sex?

- Yeah, but she wouldn't tell me...

...which ones was the opposite sex.

- I'll bet you've had plenty of girls.

- Too many.

Believe me, horses are more dependable.

Of course, one cannot

make love to a horse.

No, unless one happens

to be another horse.

Of course,

I don't have much choice myself.

You see, women don't like me,

and, well, I don't like horses, so...

Well, amigo,

maybe your approach is wrong.

Now, what is the first thing you do

when you get a woman in your arms?

Well, I give her a salt rub.

Oh, no, no, I'm talking about love.

The first thing you do is kiss her.

Oh, no, I couldn't do that.

Oh, don't tell me

you have never kissed a woman.

Well, have you ever held a woman

in your arms?

Have you ever held a woman's hand?

Well, have you ever...?

Oh, amigo, you are in bad shape,

aren't you?

- I don't know.

- But I will show you what to do.

First, you have a beautiful woman

in your arms.

You hold her tenderly.

Oh, she's gorgeous and she's all yours.

- She is?

- Oh, yes.

- Would you mind if I held her for a while?

- Of course. Here, you take her.

You know, she's heavier than I thought.

Now, you must say to her:

- Why do I have to speak Spanish?

- Because it's a language of love.

- Women can't resist it.

- They can't?

Now, hold her tight.

No, tighter. Still tighter. Tighter.

- She's kind of big.

- All right, kiss her.

No, not like a baby, like a man.

Oh, amigo, I like you.

And you have made my arm

as good as new. Well, hasta la vista.

Oh, in your language,

that means "adis, amigo."

Gee, he sure looks romantic

in that Groucho costume.

Gosh, anybody could get a girl

if he looked like that.

What a guy.

Senor O'Rourke.

Speak to me, say something.
