Movie Quote of the Day – Yankee Doodle Dandy, 1942 (dir. Michael Curtiz)
George M. Cohan: Mr. President, I’ve just begun to earn this medal. It’s quite a thing.
The President: Well, it’s the best material we could find, what with priorities and all.
George M. Cohan: Goodbye, sir. And I want you to know, I’m not the only one that’s grateful. My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, and my sister thanks you, and I assure you, I thank you.
