Quote of the Day: Overboard

Annie: I don’t belong here, I feel it, don’t you think I feel it. I can’t do any of these vile things and I wouldn’t WANT to. Oh, my life is like death. My children are the spawn of hell, and you’re the devil. Oh God.

Dean Proffitt: But baby, we LIKE you.

Remember That Song: 7/20/16

We’ll go with an easy listening duet today.

Can you name the artists and song:

‘Cause he’ll always take you in
Just when you think you’ve really changed him
He’ll leave you again


Last song: “Open Your Heart” by Madonna from True Blue (1986)

Great job Andy (@andytorah) and Amy (@Amycrocker76Amy)!!!

I see you on the street and you walk on by
You make me want to hang my head down and cry
If you gave me half a chance you’d see
My desire burning inside of me

Quote of the Day: Revenge of the Nerds

Gibert: I just wanted to say that I’m a nerd, and I’m here tonight to stand up for the rights of other nerds. I mean uh, all our lives we’ve been laughed at and made to feel inferior. And tonight, those bastards, they trashed our house. Why? Cause we’re smart? Cause we look different? Well, we’re not. I’m a nerd, and uh, I’m pretty proud of it.

Lewis: Hi, Gilbert. I’m a nerd too. I just found that out tonight. We have news for the beautiful people. There’s a lot more of us than there are of you. I know there’s alumni here tonight. When you went to Adams you might’ve been called a spazz, or a dork, or a geek. Any of you that have ever felt stepped on, left out, picked on, put down, whether you think you’re a nerd or not, why don’t you just come down here and join us. Okay? Come on.

Gibert: Just join us cos uh, no-one’s gonna really be free until nerd persecution ends.


Happy 54th birthday to Anthony Edwards!!!

Quote of the Day: Cujo


[Donna & Tad have just arrived at Joe Camber’s home, but no one is around]

Donna Trenton: Well, looks like we’ve arrived, Tadder.

Tad Trenton: Yeah, but is anyone home?

[Donna gets out of the car]

Donna Trenton: Hello?

Tad Trenton: I can’t get my seatbelt off!

[Donna gets back into the car & starts helping Tad trying to get the belt loose, which she finally does]

Tad Trenton: I wish Dad would get a new car.

Donna Trenton: So do I.

[Cujo suddenly appears on Tad’s side of the car, jumping up on the window. He barks & paws savagely at the half-open window, trying to get his head through. Donna manages to get the window rolled up, as Tad screams in horror]

Tad Trenton: [screaming] Who let the monster out of my closet? Who let the monster out of my closet?

Donna Trenton: [grabs Tad & hangs onto him] It’s not a monster. It’s not a monster. It’s just a…

[Cujo attacks the passenger side again. Unable to get in, he runs around to Donna’s side & jumps up on the driver’s side, barking & snarling]

Tad Trenton: Who let the monster out of my closet? Who let the monster out of my closet?

Donna Trenton: It’s not a monster. It’s not a monster. It’s just a doggy –

[Cujo attacks from the front this time, jumping up on the hood of the Pinto & snarling and barking at Donna & Tad. He paws ferociously at the windshield, but finally jumps off the car after Donna blasts the horn at him]

My good friends, Ty and Nick, recently interviewed Dee Wallace, known for this movie as well as E.T.’s Elliott’s mom in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. It is a fantastic interview, and I highly recommend it.

Quote of the Day: Pretty in Pink

Iona: Does he have… strong lips?
Andie: How can you tell?
Iona: Did you feel it in your knees?
Andie: I felt it everywhere.
Iona: Strong lips. [laughs] I know I’m old enough to be his mother, but when the Duck laid that kiss on me last night, I swear my thighs just went up in flames! He must practice on melons or something.

You’ve go something that I can’t live without
Happiness, is so hard to find
Hey baby, tell me what is on your mind

Quote of the Day: The Empire Strikes Back

Han Solo: Well Princess, it looks like you managed to keep me here a while longer.
Princess Leia: I had nothing to do with it. General Rieekan thinks it’s dangerous for anyone to leave the system until they’ve activated the energy shield.
Han Solo: That’s a good story. I think you just can’t bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight.
Princess Leia: I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.

Han Solo: Laugh it up, fuzzball.
