Movie Quote of the Day – The Jerk, 1979 (dir. Carl Reiner)
Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here!
Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.
Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 – Johnson, Navin R.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.

Sniper: Johnson, Navin R. . .sounds like a typical bastard. [cut back to gas station] Die, Navin R. Johnson. Bastard! Random son of a bitch, typical run-of-the-mill bastard.
