Quote of the Day: The Blues Brothers

Jake: What’s this?

Elwood: What?

Jake: This car. This stupid car! Where’s the Cadillac?

[Elwood doesn’t answer]

Jake: The Caddy! Where’s the Caddy?

Elwood: The what?

Jake: The Cadillac we used to have. The Bluesmobile!

Elwood: I traded it.

Jake: You traded the Bluesmobile for this?

Elwood: No, for a microphone.

Jake: A microphone?

[pause]

Jake: Okay I can see that. What the hell is this?

Elwood: This was a bargain. I picked it up at the Mount Prospect city police auction last spring. It’s an old Mount Prospect police car. They were practically giving ’em away.

Jake: Well thank you, pal. The day I get outta prison, my own brother picks me up in a *police* car!

Quote of the Day: The Breakfast Club

Allison Reynolds: I’ll do anything sexual. I don’t need a million dollars to do it either.
Claire Standish: You’re lying.
Allison Reynolds: I already have. I’ve done just about everything there is except a few things that are illegal. I’m a nymphomaniac.
Claire Standish: Lie.
Brian Johnson: Are your parents aware of this?
Allison Reynolds: The only person I told was my shrink.
Andrew Clark: And what did he do when you told him?
Allison Reynolds: He nailed me.
Claire Standish: Very nice.
Allison Reynolds: I don’t think that from a legal standpoint what he did can be construed as rape, since I paid him.
Claire Standish: He’s an adult.
Allison Reynolds: Yeah, he’s married too.
Claire Standish: Do you have any idea how completely gross that is?
Allison Reynolds: Well, the first few times…
Claire Standish: The first few times? You mean you did it more than once?
Allison Reynolds: Sure.
Claire Standish: Are you crazy?
Brian Johnson: Obviously she’s crazy if she’s screwing a shrink.
Allison Reynolds: Have you ever done it?
Claire Standish: I don’t even have a psychiatrist.
Allison Reynolds: Have you ever done it with a normal person?
Claire Standish: Didn’t we already cover this?
John Bender: You never answered the question.
Claire Standish: Look, I’m not going to discuss my private life with total strangers.
Allison Reynolds: It’s kind of a double edged sword isn’t it?
Claire Standish: A what?
Allison Reynolds: Well, if you say you haven’t, you’re a prude. If you say you have you’re a slut. It’s a trap. You want to but you can’t, and when you do you wish you didn’t, right?
Claire Standish: Wrong.
Allison Reynolds: Or are you a tease?
Andrew Clark: She’s a tease.
Claire Standish: I’m sure. Why don’t you just forget it.
Andrew Clark: Oh, you’re a tease and you know it. All girls are teases.
John Bender: She’s only a tease if what she does gets you hot.
Claire Standish: I don’t do anything.
Allison Reynolds: That’s why you’re a tease.
Claire Standish: OK, let me ask you a few questions.
Allison Reynolds: I already told you everything.
Claire Standish: No. Doesn’t it bother you to sleep around without being in love. I mean, don’t you want any respect?
Allison Reynolds: I don’t screw to get respect. That’s the difference between you and me.
Claire Standish: It’s not the only difference I hope.
John Bender: Face it, you’re a tease.
Claire Standish: I’m NOT a tease.
John Bender: Sure you are. Sex is your weapon. You said it yourself. You use it to get respect.
Claire Standish: No, I never said that she twisted my words around.
John Bender: What do you use it for then?
Claire Standish: I don’t use it period.
John Bender: Oh, are you medically frigid or is it psychological?
Claire Standish: I didn’t mean it that way. You guys are putting words into my mouth.
John Bender: Well, if you’d just answer the question.
Brian Johnson: Why don’t you just answer the question?
Andrew Clark: Be honest.
John Bender: No big deal.
Brian Johnson: Yeah answer it.
Andrew Clark: Answer the question, Claire.
John Bender: Talk to us. Every one: C’mon, answer the question. Come on. Answer it.
John Bender: C’mon, it’s easy. It’s only one question.
Claire Standish: NO I NEVER DID IT.
Allison Reynolds: I never did it either. I’m not a nymphomaniac. I’m a compulsive liar.

Happy 55th birthday to Ally Sheedy!!!
