Quote of the day, 1/2/07

Margo. You by any chance got bicarbonate of soda in the house?

Poor Max. Heartburn?
(Max nods)
It's that Miss Caswell. I don't know why she doesn't give Addison heartburn.

No heart to burn.

Everybody has a heart - except some people.
(she finishes her drink, stands up)
Of course I've got bicarb. There's a box in the pantry. We'll put your
name on it. Max Fabian. It'll say there. Always. Just for you.

Let the rest of the world beat their brains out for a buck. It's friends that count. And I got friends.

I love you, Max. I really mean it. I love you. Come to the pantry.

She takes off. ...

She loves me like a father. Also, she's loaded.


Don't get up. And please stop acting as if I were the queen mother.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to-

Outside of a beehive, Margo, your behavior would hardly be considered either queenly or motherly!

You're in a beehive, pal, didn't you know? We're all busy little bees, full of stings, making honey day and night-
(to Eve)
- aren't we, honey?

--"All About Eve"

God, that's a great movie. I remember being shocked, when I first saw it, at how far ahead of its time it was.

Also, as a bonus, Marilyn Monroe's cameo is hilarious.

I've been meaning to do a longer post on it. hopefully within the next few days. (note to self: sign up for classes FIRST, get started on applications FIRST...)

I forgot all about that movie. Maybe I should watch it again.

Happy New Year!

May the worm of conscience still begnaw thy soul. Makest thou thy applications or I'l belabor thee about thy skull, I'll unhair thy head, I'll chide thee and etc etc...

"Margo, you were an enchanting Peter Pan; you must play it again soon."

--every damn line is a quotable gem, practically...

My favorite is, "fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."

I love that movie.

Good thing I didn't write the script:

Poor Max. Heartburn?

No thanks, I already have some.
