Yeah, but we’re making good time.

Yogi Berra (1925-2015) American baseball player, coach, manager [b. Lawrence Peter Berra]
(Spurious)


When told by Joe Garagiola (or Phil Rizzuto) the car they were in was lost, according to Merle Jones in 1963. Berra says he used the phrase, but with his family in 1972.  The joke (not by Berra) can be found dated back to at least the late 1940s. More here.

Berra says this is actually part of the directions to drivers going to his house in Montclair, New Jersey; there is a fork in the road, but either branch will get you to the destination.
