Max Millan: Crows are laughin’, right. Ya know, in the joint I’ve heard some tales, oh boy, golly I’ve heard some tall tales. But at least those guys had the decency to admit that it was bullshit, you know what I mean? They actually uh, they took pride, pride in that it was bullshit. But the crows are laughin’ huh? Oh, brother, heee. . .I mean you’re not playin’ with a full deck man, you got one foot in the great beyond.
Movie Quote of the Day – Amistad, 1997 (dir. Steven Spielberg)
John Quincy Adams: Cinque, look. I’m being honest with you. Anything less would be disrespectful. I’m telling you, I’m preparing you, I suppose I’m explaining to you, that the test ahead of us is an exceptionally difficult one.
Cinque: (speaking in Mende / Ens. Covey translating) We won’t be going in there alone.
John Quincy Adams: Alone? Indeed not. We have right at our side. We have righteousness at our side. We have Mr Baldwin over there.
Cinque: (speaking in Mende / Ens. Covey translating) I meant my ancestors. I will call into the past, far back to the beginning of time, and beg them to come and help me at the judgment. I will reach back and draw them into me. And they must come, for at this moment, I am the whole reason they have existed at all.
Movie Quote of the Day – Much Ado About Nothing, 2013 (dir. Joss Whedon)
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.
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.

Dr. Clinton Forrest, Jr.: Mmm-hmmm.

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.
