|What's Lina's comment, when the microphone is in the bush, and she has to talk into it but keeps forgetting that it's there?||Singin' In The Rain
"Well I can't make love to a bush!". When the director fixes Lina's sound problem there is a cable linking the microphone in Lina's dress to the sound booth. RF comes in and almost trips over the cable. He thinks that someone else might trip over it and injure themselves. So instead of telling someone he pulls it and seeing it is connected to Lina she goes head over heels. This is very funny!
