  1. Madeleleine L’Engle did not create that line either. It starts Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s 1830 novel Paul Clifford.

    Similarly, I have heard “Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!” attributed to Brooks’s Blazing Saddles (where it did in fact occur, but it is a direct quote from (homage to) Huston’s earlier The Treasure of Sierra Madre.

    The world is indeed a complex, involved, and wonderful place!

    1. I stand corrected.

      I was saying “Badges…. we don’t need no stinking bages” when I was in Jr. High and long beforfe Blazing Saddles was made.
