While Groucho might provide some tenuous connection to Eliot, since they knew each other casually, I've never seen this line attributed to Groucho. Rather, I believe it was coined by (or at least attributed to) former New York Yankee catcher and manager Yogi Berra. (Incidentally, he insists it was an accurate instruction for reaching his house, since the two prongs of the fork met up before one got to his address.)
