Movie Quote of the Day – Magnolia, 1999 (dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)

Phil Parma: I know this sounds silly and I know that I might sound ridiculous. Like this is the scene in the movie where the guy’s trying to get ahold of the long lost son, you know, but this is that scene. This is that scene. And I think that they have those scenes in movies because they’re true, you know, because they really happen. And you gotta believe me. This is really happening.

See, this is the scene in the movie where you help me out.
