Movie Madness Monday 149: Leap of Faith edition

On this glorious Easter Monday, let us celebrate a film about love and family and faith, as well as always searching for knowledge, especially vital to us as teachers. Put your quotes in the comment section!

"My son, we're pilgrims in an unholy land."

"I was a wonderful father."
"Yeah, how?"
"Did I ever tell you to eat up, go to bed, wash your ears, do your homework? No, I respected your privacy and I taught you self-reliance."
"What you taught me is that I was less important to you than people that have been dead for several hundred years and in other countries, and I learned it so well, that we've hardly spoken for 20 years."

"'X' never, EVER marks the spot."

"Is there anyone here who speaks English? Or maybe even ancient Greek?"

"He chose... poorly."

"The Name of God..."
"The Name of God... Jehovah."
"But in the Latin alphabet, 'Jehovah' begins with an 'I'."

"Oh, rats."

Go, and seek it out!

I was just remembering the last time we had a quiet drink together. I had a milkshake.
