Caddyshack line confusion - HELP!

I am getting some custom ball markers made for my groomsman to use on the bachelor party. My dad is able to quote every line of caddyshack and i'm trying to use a line from the scene when Maggie finds out she is pregnant. Does she say "thanks fer nuthin" or "thanks fer nuttin"?
After watching clips on youtube I have sufficiently confused myself and the latter would be wildly inappropriate.

    I am pretty sure it's just "Thanks for nothing" but with her accent, it does sounds funny and different. I'd go with your first interpretation.

    The accent makes it tough.

    This is what I always thought...

    Lol. Sure you don't want to go with "It's in the hole!"?

  • NylerticholsNylertichols Members Posts: 15 ✭✭

    might go with the appropriately self deprecating "Now I know why tigers eat their young"

    Perhaps "You'll get nothing and like it!"

    I think it's "Tanks fer nuttin"

    But maybe you should go with "We're all gonna get laid"......seems more fitting for a bachelor party!

    One of my favorite lines from the movie is a bit obscure, "Right in the lumberyard". I use it whenever things don't quite go as planned.

    “Thanks for nothing” in Maggie’s exceptionally poor Irish accent they had Sarah Holcomb affect.

    As a side note...she also played the underage daughter of Mayor Carmine DePasto in “Animal House” (went with “Pinto” (Thomas Hulce) to the Toga Party...)

    Me too, only I say "Right in the lumberyard Danny"
    To describe some of my shots, and occasionally to answer one of my buddies when they ask "where did that one go"
    I checked it out on Youtube, and you are using the correct quote from the movie. I added the Danny.

    "Thank you very little"

    I'm pretty sure "nuttin" wasn't common slang for the male **** in 1980.
