Try These

I just met a wonderful new man. He’s fictional but you can’t have everything.

Baseball may be a religion full of magic, cosmic truth, and the fundamental ontological riddles of our time, but it’s also a job.

and a particular favorite of mine:

I am the author. You are the audience. I outrank you!

  1. fundamental ontological truths? Gotta be Bull Durham (Did I mention that I have a Crash Davis baseball card??)

    THe others? Must mull.

  2. Oh, OH, The Producers! But the first one — okay, you’ve got me there. But how about the movie that contains:

    “What’s the point of sleeping with you if it doesn’t get your attention?”

    and,
    “You’re probably a blessing in disguise. F—ing good disguise.”

  3. Maybe somebody else can get the first one, but Robyn is right about The Producers. I thought that would stump people, silly me.

    Now, as for good disguise — The Opposite of Sex. Which has the best advertising line ever, something like, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be offended.

    Don’t know about the ‘get your attention’ one.

  4. Ah, my unclear syntax, I guess — it was the same movie for both quotes. Sheriff Carl to Lucia, actually, right around his great speech of, “Say the point of sex isn’t recreation or procreation or any of that stuff — say it’s concentration…”

    (Although the line that made me laugh so hard I spilled my drink was Lucia’s exasperated “This is how we do things on the Planet Maturia. We have much to teach you.”)

    Oh, and given that the holidays are thick upon us — ever seen “The Ref”? Undoubtedly the funniest Christmas hostage movie EVER about family therapy With Judy Davis AND Kevin Spacey, and Glynis Johns and Christine Baranski as in-laws…
