Walking through my door

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.

Quote of the Day: The Secret of My Success

[after reviewing Brantley’s (faked) résumé]
Mrs. Meacham: Outstanding! Outstanding!
Brantley Foster: You’re not going to tell me I have too much experience, are you?
Mrs. Meacham: Certainly not – you’re perfect for the job.
Brantley Foster: Great!
Mrs. Meacham: Except…
Brantley Foster: No! No exceptions! I want this job, I need it, I can do it. Everywhere I’ve been today there’s always been something wrong, too young, too old, too short, too tall. Whatever the exception is, I can fix it. I can be older, I can be taller, I can be anything.
Mrs. Meacham: Can you be a minority woman?

Quote of the Day: Sudden Impact

Harry Callahan: Listen, punk. To me you’re nothin’ but dogshit, you understand? And a lot of things can happen to dogshit. It can be scraped up with a shovel off the ground. It can dry up and blow away in the wind. Or it can be stepped on and squashed. So take my advice and be careful where the dog shits ya!

Happy 87th birthday to Clint Eastwood!!!
