Movie Madness Monday: Full speed ahead edition

Welcome back once again to Movie Madness Monday! Here’s the deal: Each Monday I pick a movie and drop in a few of my favorite quotes. You then stop your damn lurking and contribute a quote of your own, from the same movie, if possible. I will not tell you the name of the movie until Wednesday. No cheating, now!

“I’ve never had a dead man buy me a drink.”
“I’ve never met a live one you bought one for, neither.”

“The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.”
“He spoke!”

“To wives and sweethearts!”
“To wives and sweethearts!”
“--May they never meet.”

“Those who die under my knife or from a subsequent infection—for my part I remind myself it was the enemy that killed them.”

“Subject to the requirements of the service.”

“Name a shrub after me. Something prickly and hard to eradicate.”

“A nautical phasmid, doctor—at least to the naked eye.”

"Here we go again-- scrape scrape, screech screech-- Never a tune you could dance to, not if you were as drunk as Davy's sow."

****Wednesday Update: Staying with a nautical theme for two weeks in a row, I give you, the best that Russell Crowe has looked since Gladiator-- umm, for you guys, let me just ask, did you see all that blood? It's

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World!
Based on the swashbuckling novels by Patrick O'Brien, this was a quite stirring tale of the British Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. The History Geek in me was delighted, and if you missed this one, you really should rent this one this weekend! So give it a try, MellowOut!

"You want your children to sing La Marseillaise?"

... er ... sure, why not?

Crowe is still so much of a better actor than singer. Have you heard his music? I caught him one night on (I think) Letterman and ... ew, stick to acting, dude.

Yeah, what do you expect from a band called Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts?
