Franck's Accent — Father of the Bride
Enjoy Franck's beautiful funny accent (performed by Martin Short) :)
Now, let me do the talking, girls, okay?
Well, I negotiate better than you.
- Now what's this guy's name?
- Franck. Franck. Franck.
- Oh, this is it.
Okay, here we go.
- Ah, Mom.

- Oh, my, Annie.

- Look. Look at this trim.
- Isn't this beautiful? Pearls.
- Oh, gee.
-Oh, wow. I love how they did this, Mom.
- Do you like this place setting?
- Oh, it's beautiful.
- That china also comes... in a wonderful Sara Lee yellow.

- I wish.
I'm Franck's assistant, Howard Weinstein.
-Well, I'm Nina Banks and this is Annie.
- Hi. Hi.
- The bride, and, uh...
- George, my husband.
- How do you do?
May I offer anyone any refreshments:
Pellegrino, espresso, champagne?
- Oh. Um, no. No.
I'll alert the boss that you're here.
Look around. Have fun.
This is so great.
- Oh! Wouldn't this be perfect for you?
- Oh, it's gorgeous!
Look how it goes with the crystal.

Mmm, I luff the weddings at the homs.
They're vary personable, very varm 'n' cuzy, vary fabulous.
Oh, so, Jawn-wary six gif us seven munths.

Five munths not much!
But that don't bother me so much because it's a little bit tight... but we can do it and it will be spak-takuler!
I saw you wurry a second. Don't wurry 'bout dat.
So now, les see.

Do you like it, Dad?
Well, what is that? ls that-- Is that dollars? $1200?
Vel, Moster Bonks, dis ees a vary raisonable price... for a keck of dis magnootud.
A cake, Franck, is made of flour and water.
- My first car didn't cost $1200
Well, welcome to the 90's, Moster Bonks.
Not only did I not understand a syllable this guy was saying... now I had the feeling he was putting me down.
Excuse me, um, Franck.

Take two seconds. Howard, letz return calls. Could we--
All right, George, what's the problem?
Do you want to leave?

I think he's going to make this a beautiful wedding.
Don't look at me. You guys decide.
Give the man a chance, George, please.
Annie, do you like this cake?
It is incredible, Dad.
- Well, all right.
But, look, let's just--
- I know.
We-- We're going to, George.
We're gonna hold things down.

- Oh, good, good.
Don't worry, Moster Bonks. I'm gonna bring de crew over to the house.
We gif everything that we haf in the once-over department... and then in the end you be vary, vary happy, trust me.
- You just smile away.
Now, interesting idea.
Wit regard to thame and kolor of de wedding, dis is how I see it:
I think we go vary elegant, inside de tent, you know--
With one swift move, I'd been cut out of the deal.
Annie, Nina and Franck were in charge now.
...and bootiful china--
Now, spo! And crystal to drop over dead for!
Old Dad was history.
