Quote of the Day: Pretty in Pink

Andie: I’m really sorry for bumming out the night for you.

Blane: [laughs] You didn’t bum out anything. I had a great time.

Andie: [accusing] Liar.

Blane: [looking her in the eye] I was with you. I had a great time. If I was in a Turkish prison, I’d have a great time with you.

Andie: I don’t know… it’s just too weird for me, you know? Maybe it shouldn’t happen.

Blane: What? You and me?

[pauses]

Blane: Well. You know, maybe it doesn’t happen all the time, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t right. Doesn’t mean you can’t try.

Happy 56th birthday to Andrew McCarthy!!!

Can you name the artist and song:

Don’t think me unkind
Words are hard to find
They’re only cheques I’ve left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind


Last Song: “Islands in the Stream” by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton from Eyes That See in the Dark (1983)

Great job Robert (@roberte46763910)!!!

Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation

Quote of the Day: Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Del: [speaking to self while sitting in the car while it snows] Well Marie, once again my dear, you where as right as rain. I am, with out a doubt, the biggest pain in the butt that ever came down the pike. I meet someone whose company I really enjoy, and what do I do? I go overboard. I smother the poor soul. I cause him more trouble than he has a right to. God, I got a big mouth. When am I ever gonna wake up? I wish you were here with me right now. But… I guess that’s not gonna happen. Not now, anyway.

Quote of the Day: The Day After

Dr. Sam Hachiya: [intensely] What did you see? You come from Kansas City. What did you see?

Dr. Russell Oakes: [in shock] I was on the freeway, about 30 miles away. I’m not sure… it was high in the air, directly above downtown. Like the sun… exploding.

The TV movie The Day After aired on ABC on this day, 35 years ago (November 20, 1983). More than 100 million tuned in to watch. It was one of the first “watercooler moments” of us school children the next morning.

I walk smooth, ride in a mean, mean machine

Quote of the Day: The Accused

Sarah Tobias: You don’t understand how I feel! I’m standing there with my pants down and my crotch hung out for the world to see and three guys are sticking it to me, a bunch of other guys are yelling and clapping and you’re standing there telling me that that’s the best you can do. Well, if that’s the best you could do, then your best sucks! Now, I don’t know what you got for selling me out, but I sure as shit hope it was worth it!
