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 – Possessed, 1931 (dir. Clarence Brown)

Marian Martin: You don’t own me. Nobody does. My life belongs to me.
Al Manning: You’ll make one fine mess of it.
Marian Martin: It’ll still belong to me.
Marian’s mother: Don’t, Marian, you frighten me when you talk like that.
Marian Martin: If I were a man it wouldn’t frighten you! You’d think it was right for me to go out and get anything I could out of life, and use anything I had to get it. Why should men be so different? All they’ve got are their brains and they’re not afraid to use them. Well neither am I!

Sandra Kovac: I’m not one of you anemic creatures who can get nourishment from a lettuce leaf – I’m a musician, I’m an artist! I have zest and appetite and I like food! I’ve been lying awake thinking about food and now I’m gonna have it!

Movie Quote of the Day – Sudden Fear, 1952 (dir. David Miller)


Lester Blaine: Miss Hudson, in your own native city of San Francisco, there’s an art gallery in the Legion of Honor in which there’s an oil painting of Casanova. It’s quite obvious that you have never seen this painting. For your information, Miss Hudson, this is what Casanova looked like. He had big ears, a scar over one eye, a broken nose, and a wart on his chin, right here. I suggest, Miss Hudson, that when you return to San Francisco, you visit this gallery and see this painting!
