Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/03/18

Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.”   —   Euripides

(All I know about Euripides is:  Euripides pants, you buy a dis suit!  It sounds like a Marx Brothers’ quip.  Probably Chico, but I can’t be sure.  Eh.  The guy might have written a play, or two.  All I know is that this is the first time a quote of his has been used for the Cryptoquote!  At least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Welcome to the club, Pides!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It probably was more elaborate in the ancient Greek, but it’s similar to our saying, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”

    UR, as a Frasier tie-in, on one of the episodes, he was talking to a caller and said: “Audrey, you borrowed the dress, you tore it. As an old Greek
    haberdasher once said: “Euripedes, Eumenides.” … … Sadly, Audrey missed the humor, ha.
