Did you have any favorite lines?

Here's one of mine:


Don't touch that squirrel's nuts!

Oops! Wrong book...I mean movie....whatever. I wonder where my mind is today. :hypnotic: :omg: :giddy:

Seriously, this was one of my favorites:

Pg. 55 - "Unfortuantely, as soon as my car pulled into the garage, I flooded the engine."
:grin:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

I liked this one about Luke...

p.96 - In fact, my wife's canine was making a lot more than I did for the majority of my professional life. I would have been jealous if I didn't know that she made him eat out of a bowl.

Here mine:
After administering a healthy injection (enough to set me off in a drooly smile, even though I knew, underneath, the pain was screaming) he announced, from very far way—possibly Ohio—that “the leg will have to go."

“Go where?” I asked, feeling positively blithe after the injection. "On vacation?”


I’m taking a “get out of jail free” day and I’m off, feeling positively blithe, to see "six stories" of CATCF at the local IMAX.

Question

Hmmmnn. Doesn't seem like too many of us are too excited about too many lines........... Or something just has us a bit distracted (again) today.......
I liked Buster's warning after the 'incident,' "There's blood in the water, Roscoe. Don't take your trunks off."
And : "If you pushed Adolph Zukor off the Paramount water tower, someone else would take the fall....."
"I never wanted to be remembered for being a star."

My favorite line is

"Hey lil Boy" :wonka:

Oh that wasnt in the book was it?

mmm Lets see "Let's Boogie" Oh wait that wasnt in there either.

Its Hopeless today to think of anything other than

Wonka! :bounce:

Just browsing through... how about this one:

"Life's a pie fight and then you die"

When he was locked in the room & was sreaming like crazy fighting the drug addiction. He says: "Darling, I just wanted a pencil. I had an idea."

It's always something, eh V? :notworthy: :lol:

I liked Stahl's dry and fatalistic sense of humor and use of self-deprecating humor with Roscoe. Here is one example:

"Hand me the rat poison while I get a glass of arsenic."
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!
