Movie Madness Monday 144: Joy and sorrow edition
This week's Movie Madness Monday comes on the heels of a shocking death of a friend who loved to laugh, and I know she loved this movie. So put your quotes in the comments section while I try to laugh through my tears.
"Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let the aeroplanes circle, moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message 'He is Dead'.
Put crepe bows 'round the white necks of the public doves,
Let traffic policemen wear black, cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East, and West.
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong."
"I would just like to say this. I am, as ever, in bewildered awe of anyone who makes this kind of commitment that Angus and Laura have made today. I know I couldn't do it and I think it's wonderful they can. So, back to Angus and those sheep."
"How do you do, my name is Charles."
"Don't be ridiculous, Charles died 20 years ago!"
"Must be a different Charles, I think."
"Are you telling me I don't know my own brother!"
"I always just hoped that, that I'd meet some nice friendly girl, like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question and... um... settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that!”
"How thoughtful of him."
"In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spigot. Err--Spirit!"
**** Weekend Update:
One of the greatest scenes ever. And one of my favorite movies ever.
