Quote of the Day: Clue

Wadsworth: The game’s up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.

Miss Scarlet: Oh, come on, you don’t think I’m gonna fall for that old trick?

Wadsworth: It’s not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the Study; two for the chandelier; two at the Lounge door and one for the singing telegram.

Miss Scarlet: That’s not six.

Wadsworth: One plus two plus two plus one.

Miss Scarlet: Uh-uh, there was only one shot that got the chandelier. That’s one plus two plus *one* plus one.

Wadsworth: Even if you were right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus *two* plus one plus one.

Miss Scarlet: Okay, fine. One plus two plus one… Shut up! The point is, there is one bullet left in this gun and guess who’s gonna get it!

Happy 72nd Birthday to Tim Curry!!!

Quote of the Day: Ghostbusters

Woman at Party: [coming up to Louis during party] Do you have any Excedrin or extra-strength Tylenol?

Louis: [opening cabinet] Gee, I think all I got is acetylsalicylic acid, generic. See, I can get six hundred tablets of that for the same price as three hundred of a name brand. That makes good financial sense, good advice…

[takes platter back into living room]

Louis: Hey, this is real smoked salmon from Nova Scotia, Canada, $24.95 a pound! It only cost me $14.12 after tax, though.

[walks up to a hapless guest, speaking confidentially]

Louis: I’m givin’ this whole thing as a promotional expense, that’s why I invited clients instead of friends. You havin’ a good time, Mark?

[heads across the room, greeting other guests]

Louis: How you doing? Why don’t you have some of the brie, it’s at room temperature!

[to the Tall Woman]

Louis: You think it’s too warm in here for the brie?

Tall Woman at Party: [standing] Louis, I’m going home.

Louis: Aw, don’t leave yet. Well, listen, maybe if we start dancing other people will join in!

Tall Woman at Party: [pauses] Okay!

[Louis and the Tall Woman begin disco dancing. Suddenly the doorbell rings]

Louis: Oh, don’t move, I just gotta get the door.

[opens door, greeting guests]

Louis: Ted! Annette! I’m glad you could come, how you doin’, give me your coats. Everybody, this is Ted and Annette Fleming! Ted has a small carpet cleaning business in receivership; Annette’s drawing a salary from a deferred bonus from two years ago! They got fifteen thousand left on the house at eight percent.

[throws the guests’ coats in the closet, oblivious that they hit the demon Vinz Clortho hiding there]

Louis: So they’re okay! So, does anybody wanna play Parcheesi?

[Vinz Clortho growls from inside the bedroom]

Louis: [grinning] Okay, who brought the dog?

Happy 65th birthday to Rick Moranis!!!
