Movie Madness Monday: Spring Forward edition

It's time for Movie Madness Monday! Yes, even though I was losing an hour of sleep, when this one came on the tube, there I was until 2 am. Fool!

Here is the basic outline: each Monday I will pick a movie and sprinkle 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. Now, you could cheat and type the quotes into a search engine, but that would be no fun.

Let's see if you get this one!

"You’re afraid to live—really live!"

"Just look at you, you’re just some nicotine saturated, and—sorry to say, hygiene deficient—FRENCHMAN!"

"My flower is none of your business!"

"Well to kiss a prostitute, it costs more—it has always been."

"Do you believe in love, the kind of love that lasts forever?"
"I loved my mother."
"Everybody loves their mother. Even people who hate their mother love their mother."

"Never touch my vine!"

"Now who is this guy who stole my bags?"
"Uhhhh, Bub."
"Oui, Bub. Y'know, like Bub Dylun?"
"Oh, Bahb."
"Oui, Bahhhhhhb."

"Oh please, not the cows! I just ate that cow! Spasm! Spasm! Oh God, here it comes-- lactose intolerance!!!!"
*****Wedbesday Update: The movie is...

French Kiss, a much overlooked gem of romantic comedy starring the incomparable Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan, both on the top of their game in a classic story of girl-meets-boy-while-chasing-down-cheating-fiance, girl-loathes-boy-while boy-tries-to-scam-her, everyone-goes-to-the-South-of-France.... well, you've heard it a million times. The script, direction, repartee, and scenery are all superb here, with Lawrence Kasdan directing.

Trivia question: on what soap opera did Meg Ryan begin her career?

Anyway, this one's a gem. Treat yourself to it if you haven't seen it! And then post your favorite quote!

I have to quit cheating at this. I just came across the whole damned script.

"I don't know what they taught you in France, but rude and interesting are not the same things."

"What does he do?"
"Besides what we do together? I don't think he does anything at all..."

"'You people make my ass twitch.'"

I consider this a "Chick Flick," but do have one soon-to-be 28-year-old friend who is a male and could probably recite most of the movie. He forced me to watch his DVD copy. It's not for me, but I love Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline. ;-)

"French Kiss" is one of my favorite moview!

You'll be one of those grumpy old men sitting in the corner of a crowded cafe, mumbling to yourself, "My ass is twitching. Your people make my ass twitch."

Fester, fester, fester. Rot, rot, rot.

"Express, not repress!!!"

"Zen you must be one of the healthiest people in the world!"

Any takers on my trivia question????????

Meg Ryan was on As The World Turns in the late 80's.

Way to go, anonymous! She was on As the World Turns as Betsy eventually Stepanoupoulous in the early 1980s.

Around this same time, Kevin Bacon was on Guiding Light.
