    This is the quote I was referring to . . . it originates from a famously factually inaccurate Groucho "autobiography" that was ghostwritten by Hector Arce ("The Secret Word is Groucho"). Groucho claims to have never said it (in an interview with Roger Ebert in Esquire Magazine from 1972 which can be found on Ebert's site: http://www.rogerebert.com/interviews...h-groucho-marx). So yes, the quote exists on paper, but it's not a quote from Groucho . . . even though the book makes that claim. Nobody has come forward to make a case for Groucho's interview with Ebert being lies as far as I know, so I see no reason to believe a publication that has been proven to be unreliable over it (technically, Groucho is quoting Arce in the Esquire article and not himself). George Fenneman, the announcer and assistant on You Bet Your Life also stated for the record that Groucho never said such a thing on the show. You can find citations for all of this on the You Bet Your Life Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Be...Cigar_incident).

    There are also known fakes of outtakes, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKC0PPZbfE8. All of the known surviving video outtakes from You Bet Your Life are on YouTube and the quote is not there. If video proof of the quote was ever found, it would be a huge deal/International news and it would be easy to find when Googling as well. If it ever existed and is now hard to find for some reason, there would be mention of it's missing/lost status. There is no secret Groucho clip of the sort that you saw that is now impossible to find on the Internet (though it's very possible you saw a fake of some kind, since there's all kinds of misinformation out there as it is and people trying to cash in on it as well).

    I didn't want to bother, but after reading about you spending so much time trying to find the clip, I felt I should invest a bit more time into this as well and elaborate more.

    wait, what? how is that a fake?

    As far as the other quote, if you don't want to believe me, suit yourself. I get saying you're skeptical until you see for yourself, but ok. It does exist even if it isn't on youtube.

    this is a really bizarre conversation

    I like the simplicity of a lot of European flags.

    Many of those flags are based on the colours in coats of arms of several duchies and other types of territories from the Middle Ages. Many of the current countries are a number of those territories of old put together in a union and therefor you'll see a mixture of colours based of those ancient territories in the flags.

    I personally prefer flags that have a bit more to them, like the iconic Union Jack (UK), or the Portuguese flag.
