Quote of the Day: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

You think I don’t know the law? Wasn’t it me who wrote it? And I say that this man has broken the law. Right or wrong, we had a deal. And the law says: bust a deal and face the wheel!

Who caught The Voice’s commercial that paid homage to Thunderdome during this year’s Super Bowl?

Quote of the Day: This Is Spinal Tap

Marty DiBergi: It’s very pretty.

Nigel Tufnel: Yeah, I’ve been fooling around with it for a few months.

Marty DiBergi: It’s a bit of a departure from what you normally play.

Nigel Tufnel: It’s part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I’m working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don’t know why.

Marty DiBergi: It’s very nice.

Nigel Tufnel: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like – I’m really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it’s sort of in between those, really. It’s like a Mach piece, really. It’s sort of…

Marty DiBergi: What do you call this?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, this piece is called “Lick My Love Pump”.

Quote of the Day: *M*A*S*H – “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen”

Hawkeye: Look, I know how tough it is for you to say goodbye, so I’LL say it. Maybe you’re right, maybe we WILL see each other again, but just in case we don’t, I want you to know how much you’ve meant to me. I’ll never be able to shake you; whenever I see a pair of big feet or a cheesy mustache, I’ll think of you.

B.J.: Whenever I smell month-old socks, I’ll think of YOU.

Hawkeye: Or the next time somebody nails my shoe to the floor…

B.J.: …or when somebody gives me a martini that tastes like lighter fluid.

Hawkeye: I’ll miss you.

B.J.: I’ll miss YOU. A lot. I can’t imagine what this place would’ve been like if I hadn’t found you here.

Happy Birthday to Alan Alda who turns 79 (!) today.

Quote of the Day: The Verdict

That that poor girl put her trust into the… into the hands of two men who took her life. She’s in a coma. Her life is gone. She has no home, no family. She’s tied to a machine. She has no friends. And the people who should care for her – her doctors… and you and me – have been bought off to look the other way. We’ve been paid to look the other way. I came here to take your money. I brought snapshots to show you so I could get your money. I can’t do it; I can’t take it. ‘Cause if I take the money I’m lost. I’ll just be a… rich ambulance chaser. I can’t do it. I can’t take it.
