For me it's "A dip in the butter and a flutter with what meets my eye" from "The Miller's Son."

Discuss, discuss.

Matt, whenever I see your icon, I think of "Someone in a Tree" from Pacific Overtures.

He'll walk in hot and tired, so what?
Don't matter if he's tired, as long as he's HOT!

That line from The Miller's Son is pretty good.
My favorite is from Follies.

"Could I bury my rage with a boy half your age in the grass?
Bet your ass." ....from Could I Leave You.

"Smart! She's into all those exotic mystiques,
Kama Sutra and Chinese techniques,
I hear she knows more than seventy-five...
Call me tomorrow if you're still alive!" (Company)

"Sally standing at the door,
Sally moving to the bed,
Sally resting in my arms,
With her head against my head." (Follies)

"Can that boy f-f-f-foxtrot!" (Follies)

Not from a musical but...
"Yes, I know that it's..hard..." (I Never Do Anything
Twice--The Seven-Percent Solution)

"The bird from the sea,
Not knowing pine from bamboo,
Roosts on anything." (Pacific Overtures)

"...Your lips part, Johanna,
So young and soft and beautiful...
You tempt me with those quivering...
You'll deliver me, Johanna,
From this
Hot
Red
Devil
With your
Soft
White
Cool
Virgin palms." (Sweeney Todd)

Not sexually charged but certainly the dumbest line
Sondheim ever wrote:
"What made it all right is what made it all wrong."
Plain stupid.

Like an Apollo,
He goes walking by,
And I have to follow him,
The boy from TACAREMBO LA TUMBE DEL FUEGO SANTA MALIPAS ZATATECAS LA JUNTA DEL SOL Y CRUZ."

A thicket's no trick, is it thick?

CP: It's the thickest.

RP: The quickest is pick it apart with a stick

CP: Yes, but even one prick, it's my thing about blood.

RP: Well it's sick!

CP: It's no sicker than your thing with dwarves!

RP: Dwarves???

CP: Dwarves!

RP: Dwarves are very upsetting.

Y'know the one that got me?

RED RIDING HOOD: I'll be your mother, Jack.

JACK: I don't want a mother, I want a friend... and a pet!

It's Red's take on the line more than the line itself!

Check my quote: Does that count?
"The stage is where I live and come alive and act out all the things that go on in my life. It's not just what I do for a living, it's my shrink and my love affair. No one in my life has ever or ever will kiss me on the mouth like this lover called my relationship with my performance."
