Quote of the Day: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

[calling the police about an intruder]

Jeannie: There is an intruder – male, Caucasian, possibly armed, certainly weird – in my kitchen… M-my-my-my name is Bueller…

[pause]

Jeannie: Look, it’s real nice that you hope my brother is feeling better, but I’m in danger, okay? I am very cute, very alone and very protective of my body. I don’t want it violated or killed, all right? I need help! Speaka de English? DICKHEAD!

Quote of the Day: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

McCoy: [Kirk runs in to the engine room and sees Spock inside the reactor compartment. He rushes over but McCoy and Scotty hold him back] No! You’ll flood the whole compartment!

Kirk: He’ll die!

Scotty: Sir! He’s dead already.

McCoy: It’s too late.

[They let go and Kirk walks to the glass and pushes the intercom button]

Kirk: Spock!

[Spock slowly walks over to the glass and pushes the intercom]

Spock: The ship… out of danger?

Kirk: Yes.

Spock: Do not grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many, outweigh…

Kirk:
The needs of the few.

Spock: Or the one. I never took the Kobayashi Maru test until now. What do you think of my solution?

Kirk: Spock.

[Spock sits down]

Spock: [Gasping] I have been… and always shall be… your friend.

[he places a Vulcan salute on the glass]

Spock: [Gasping] Live long… and prosper.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was released on this day 36 years ago – June 4, 1982
