Movie Madness Monday: episode 20
Well, as we luxuriate in the fact that finally ALL of us in the Edusphere are on summer break, except for those poor souls shepherding summer school scholars, it's time to relax. Hence, Movie Madness Monday! Here is the basic outline: each Monday I will pick a movie and list 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. So here we go:
"I came to understand that there had been abuse in my family... but it was mostly musical in nature."
"What is it you do, Leonard? For work?"
"Oh, for work. I'm in the bladder management industry."
"I think I'm on record as Mr. Anti-Dickey."
"Thank God for the model trains, you know? If they didn't have the model trains they wouldn't have gotten the idea for the big trains."
"I had a hit that you might have heard of-- "Hudelagin Hidda Gomin"-- which means "How's It Hangin', Grandma?"
"We are Winc- W I N C: Witches in Nature's Colors."
"We don't want people to reach for their remotes, here."
"But it's public television..."
"Yeah, they don't HAVE remotes."
"Every 13.5 seconds a new incontinent is born, as it were. People like you and I have what they call "leakage problems." They can be running, playing tennis, laughing, sneezing, anything. I mean, the good old constipation, you know. You have impacted fecal mass in your rectum, you find that pushing on your bladder..."
"You know, this might make good dessert talk."
****Wednesday Update: This week we return to the beloved mockumentary format in
A Mighty Wind
the thrilling behind-the-scenes close-up of the break-ups, heartbreaks in the real counter-cultural world of Folk Music, from the geniuses who brought us This Is Spinal Tap. And that means, Janet, that you have a trip to the video store in your future. The tough thing about this movie is that there is so much visual humor as well. If you haven't popped this one in the DVD for a while, now you have an excuse.
And now, just for Mr. Lawrence:
The famous Mitch and Mickey, whose reunion was so celebrated if abbreviated.
