Movie Madness Monday 140: Paprikash edition
It's Monday, some of us are feeling beat up and beat down, so Ms. Cornelius is going to refer to herself in the third person. Like the Queen. Or Richard Nixon. Consider those two things together while I supply you with a new edition of MMM. Remember, place your quotes from the movie in the comments section. Love ya!
"I have it all figured out. It's an eighteen hour trip which breaks down into six shifts of three hours each or alternatively we could break it down by mileage."
"The story of my life isn't even going to get us out of Chicago I mean nothing's happened to me yet. That's why I'm going to New York."
"So something can happen to you?"
"I can go into journalism school to become a reporter."
"So you can write about things that happen to other people."
"That's one way to look at it."
"Suppose nothing happens to you. Suppose you lived out your whole life and nothing happens you never meet anybody you never become anything and finally you die in one of those New York deaths which nobody notices for two weeks until the smell drifts into the hallway."
"Don't you have a dark side? No you're probably one of those cheerful people who dots their eyes with little hearts."
"I don't want to spend the rest of my life in Casablanca married to a man who runs a bar. I probably sound very snobbish to you but I don't."
"You'd rather be in a passionless marriage."
"And be the first lady of Czechoslovakia."
"Than live with the man you've had the greatest sex of you life with, and just because he owns a bar and that is all he does."
"Yes. And so had any woman in her right mind-- women are very practical, even Ingrid Bergman-- which is why she gets on the plane at the end of the movie."
"We are just going to be friends, ok?
"Great! Friends! It's the best thing."
"You realise of course that we can never be friends."
"What I'm saying is... and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form, is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
Weekend Update: Ordering a sandwich at a deli was never the same after we all agreed with Rob Riener's mother in
Nora Ephron's sparkling dialogue at its very best! Billy Chrystal and Meg Ryan as the perfect odd couple! If you have not seen this you have much to learn about movies... and women.
Thanks for playing!
