Slight misremembering of the line; the Why? was Pinto.

That's correct...

Dorfman - "What's my Delta Tau Xi nickname?"
Bluto - "Dorfman... I've put a lot of thought into this. Your Delta Tau Xi nickname is Flounder"
Dorfman - "Flounder!!??"

BTW, I didn't see Furst in a lot of things after Animal House, although his obit mentions many other credits.. but he was in a very enjoyable movie called "The Dream Team" with Christopher Lloyd, Peter Boyle, and Michael Keaton... four nut jobs who were inadvertently stranded in Manhattan after their doctor got jacked.

A very funny movie. "Who wants to be a fire truck?"

wrong movie... that was "Crazy People" with Dudley Moore and Daryl Hannah

the ads they did for that film were hilarious...

Jaguar — For men who'd like hand-jobs from beautiful women they hardly know
Volvo — they're boxy but they're good
Forget Paris. The French can be annoying. Come to Greece. We're nicer.
United - most of our passengers get there alive
Quaker Oats - does this cereal taste great? Who knows.. but at least the box is cute.

You are, of course, correct. Still a very funny movie.

both were incredibly underrated IMHO.. again, those ads alone were worth the price of admission for Crazy People!

JT Walsh had some great lines... ""Paramount Pictures presents 'The Freak.' This movie won't just scare you, it will f*ck you up for life." I want to know how the f*ck the word "f*ck" gets in the New York f*cking Times!"
