Ok I'm trying to find there this quote came from -

So long high pockets! The tall jokes are funny, but they hurt.

I am thinking it's from an Audrey Hepburn movie but not sure. Anyone know?

High Pockets is a character in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. -- found it by searching the web a bit, not because I remembered! Couldn't find documentation of the quote, though.

Edmond O'Brien is the most likely one to have said this in this movie. Sounds like him.

Not even the Internet Movie Database was helpful for this one. I found there was a 1919 western titled High Pockets, and a couple other movies, including The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and I Was an American Spy, had characters named "High Pockets."

The quote, however, continues to elude us.
