You are too funny, Feo. That sounds like something I would do! :D

Okay, I'll throw one out there and hopefully it's easier:

Good guess -- but it was neither Presley nor Costello, although the character who said it was also heard on the radio.

It was Tim McIntyre as Alan Freed in American Hot Wax.

Absolutely. Mr. Dewey's avatar. The Moondog. Portrayed by (allegedly) Orson Welles' son.

Take it away, CharlieT.

I'll be out of internet range for the rest of the weekend, so if anyone else would like to jump in, feel free. If it's still open when I get back, I'll try to come up with something interesting, yet slightly challenging.

I'll try to step into the breech CharlieT, where is this line from?

Just posting in to point out (at the risk of having missed some wicked-sharp inside joke), that the Tim McIntire who portrayed the unsuppressible Mr. Freed in American Hot Wax, was in fact the son of actor John McIntire and his spouse/frequent co-star Jeanette Nolan, and sadly, preceded them both in death.
I'm sure you'd do the same, ChiO, should someone ever doubt that Jim Carrey is in fact Timothy Carey's nephew (spelling notwithstanding).

P.S: Not to brag or nothin', but I had the privilege of projecting American Hot Wax at the Latchis Theatre in Keene, NH, on an antique, dual-iron-lung-type carbon arc projection unit back in 1978 . . little did I know at the time what a classic I was showing . . !

Klondike,

You brought memories rushing back with that paragraph. We had an old carbon arc projection system in Bovard Hall at USC and though everyone treated the running of the projectors with disdain (they were so much work), the projectionist crew treated the one guy who could run them like a rock star.

The films looked beautiful on those babies, too.
