Beatrice: O, God, that I were a man! I would eat his heart in the market-place.
Benedick: Hear me, Beatrice…
Beatrice: Talk with a man at a window. O, a proper saying.
Benedick: Nay, but, Beatrice. . .
Beatrice: Sweet Hero. She is wronged, she is slandered, she is undone.
Benedick: Beatrice.
Beatrice: Princes and counties. A goodly count. O, that I were a man for his sake! Or that I had any friend who would be a man for my sake! But manhood is melted into curtsies, valor into compliment, and men are only turned into tongues, and trim ones too. For he is now as valiant as Hercules who only tells a lie and swears it! I cannot be a man with wishing, therefore I will die a woman with grieving.

Kay Lemp: Look.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Mmm-hmmm.
Kay Lemp: Right from the comissary.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Mmm. No, no. I don’t care for a sandwich, thanks.
Kay Lemp: It’s not for you, it’s for me. Know any more about nomoncoculosous?
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Pneumoconiosis.
Kay Lemp: Do you?
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: No, no. Not much. It takes time. I make a little progress. Somebody else makes a little progress. Maybe a hundred years.
Kay Lemp: Well, anyway, you’ve just done a great job.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Oh, thanks.
Kay Lemp: Say, wouldn’t you like me to develop nomoncoconosous?
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Pneumoconiosis.
Kay Lemp: Yeah, so you can have a handy guinea pig.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Hey, how did you know I liked milk instead of cream in my coffee?
Kay Lemp: I noticed at the house.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Yeah?
Kay Lemp: Nothing escapes me. Nothing and no one.
Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Ohhhh.

Movie Quote of the Day – The Heartbreak Kid, 1972 (dir. Elaine May)

Lenny Cantrow: I don’t mind saying, this is one of the finest meals that I’ve ever had.
Mrs. Corcoran: Oh, thank you Leonard. It’s simple, you know. Mr. Corcoran doesn’t really care for fancy food. Though, I imagine you’ve tried just about every exotic dish in New York.
Lenny Cantrow: Exactly. See, that’s the trouble, it’s exotic, but it’s not honest. I mean, it’s fancy, but it’s not real. I mean, this is honest food. There’s no lying in that beef. There’s no insincerity in those potatoes. There’s no deceit in the cauliflower. This is a totally honest meal. You don’t know what a pleasure it in this day and age to sit down and eat a meal you can believe in.

Erica: You know what I did yesterday? I threw out a whole new jar of blackberry jam. Martin loved blackberry jam. I think the problem was that I didn’t do things as myself, you know? I did things as this Martin & Erica, Martin & Erica. It wasn’t his fault. I liked it.
Saul: Saul & Erica will be different from Martin & Erica.
Erica: You wanna see other women?
Saul: I want you.
Erica: You’re free to.
Saul: I don’t want to.
Erica: Then don’t.
Saul: Do you want to see other men?
Erica: Not today.
Saul: I’m getting a headache.

A.J.: Lucas, do you think it’s possible for a person to be in love with someone else and not even know it?
Lucas: In this life there are nothing but possibilities.

Female Filmmaker Friday: Girlfriends, 1978 (dir. Claudia Weill)


I first saw this film last fall and I fell head over heels for it. It was directed, produced and co-written by Claudia Weill, who collaborated with friend Vicki Polon on the screenplay. Weill directed the film on weekends over a the course of a year. Somehow it got picked up by Warner Bros. and was given a limited run. Stanley Kurbick saw the film and said in a 1980 interview that it was one of the most interesting American films he had seen in recent years. Anyone who enjoyed last year’s Frances Ha, will love this film. They’re surprisingly similar and I wouldn’t be shocked if Baumbach and Gerwig drew some inspiration for their film from it. girlfriends1 Read the rest of this entry
