About this Quote

This quote by Rodney Dangerfield is an amusing take on the concept of being invited somewhere and after that being stood up. It indicates that the woman who invited him was either being deceptive or was uninformed that nobody would be house when he showed up. It also implies that Rodney Dangerfield was so excited to accept the invitation that he went anyway, regardless of the truth that no one was home. This quote is a humorous way of expressing the idea that in some cases individuals make promises they can't keep, and that it can be frustrating when those guarantees do not come to fulfillment. It also indicates that Rodney Dangerfield is a relying on person who wants to take dangers and accept invitations, even when there is a chance that he may be dissatisfied.
