Hillary: Mr. Nicholson, why are theire two drinks here.Jack: For the bug.Hillary: What bug?Jack: The bug you have up your ass.Steel Magnolias
Crazy white characters who like Hillary. Not exactly highly motivational material. The rest of that "Five Easy Pieces" quote would work nicely. The little bit of the clip made me think of Clinton's waitress problem back in Iowa.
(from Carnal Knowledge)Women today are better-hung than the men.
Man, "The Shining" alone has a ton of good ones...
JACK TORRENCE: Do you have the slightest idea what a moral and ethical principal is? Do you?!
You must be some important dude.That treatment--'' Dude''?What does he mean, ''dude''?Dude ranch?'' Dude'' means a nice guy, you know?'' Dude'' means a regular person.You don't look like you're fromthis part of the country.You're lucky l'm here to seeyou don't get into anything.Well...they got this here...scissor-happy,beautify-America thing here.Trying to make everybodylook like Yul Brynner.They used rusty razor bladeson the last two longhairs...they brought in.l wasn't here to protect them.See...l'm a lawyer.Done a lot of work for the ACLU.George Hansen.You think you can help usget out of here?l imagine that l canif you haven't killed anybody.At least nobody white.
The full quote from A Few Good Men:"There is nothing on this earth sexier, believe me, gentlemen, than a woman you have to salute in the morning. Promote 'em all, I say, because this is true - if you haven't gotten a blow-job from a superior officer, well, you're just letting the best in life pass you by. 'Course, my problem is, I'm a colonel, so I guess I'll just have to keep taking cold showers until one of you gals is elected president."
Here's an exchange for ya:McMurphy: Nurse Ratched, Nurse Ratched! The Chief voted! Now will you please turn on the television set.Nurse Ratched: Mr. McMurphy, the meeting was adjourned and the vote was closed.McMurphy: But the vote was 10 to 8. The Chief, he's got his hand up! Look!Nurse Ratched: No, Mr. McMurphy. When the meeting was adjourned the vote was 9 to 9.McMurphy: Aw come on, you're not gonna say that now! You're not gonna say that now! You're gonna pull that hen house shit? Now when the vote...the Chief just voted...it was 10 to 8. Now I want that television set turned on right now!Nurse Ratched turns away.Not quite appropriate in a Hillary promotion, hmmm?
Jack should have used the rest of the lines from the "things could be a whole lot better" scene in "The Shining":JACK TORRENCE: Things could be better, Lloyd. Things could be a whole lot better.LLOYD: I hope it's nothing serious.JACK TORRENCE: No. Nothing serious. Just a little problem with the, uh, ol' sperm bank upstairs. Nothing I can't handle, though Lloyd, thanks.LLOYD: Women. Can't live with 'em. Can't live without 'em.JACK TORRENCE: Words of wisdom, Lloyd. Words of wisdom.
JACK TORRENCE: This is so fucking typical of you to create a problem like this when I finally have a chance to accomplish something - when I'm really into my work!
OK, I'm almost ashamed to post this one, but given the "pajamas" dust-up this weekend:GRADY: Did you know, Mr. Torrance, that your son is attempting to bring an outside party into this situation? Did you know that?JACK: No.GRADY: He is, Mr. Torrance.JACK: Who?GRADY: A nigger.JACK: A nigger?
OK, one more:JACK TORRENCE: No need to rub it in, Mr. Grady. I'll deal with that situation as soon as I get out of here.DELBERT GRADY: Will you indeed, Mr. Torrance? I wonder. I have my doubts. I and others have come to believe that your heart is not in this, that you haven't the belly for it.JACK TORRENCE: Just give me one more chance to prove it, Mr. Grady. It's all I ask.
How about the scene from Chinatown where Jake Gittes is telling the dirty joke about the 'sex like a chinaman', and then Dunaway walks in...just substitute a clip of Hillary instead of Dunaway...better still go to a clip of a smiling Bill!
You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it....Don't ever tell anybody that they're not free, 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. --as alcoholic lawyer George Hanson, Easy Rider, though this would really be better for Ron Paul or Obama...
From 'As Good As It Gets':Q: How do write women so well?A: I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.Oh wait a minute, are you wanting quotes that would be pro-Hillary?
The moment in The SHining where Jack sticks his head through the door when he's trying to murder his wife, and says, "I'm Bacccck!"But now he could say, "Sheeeee's baccckkkkkk!!!!"Or possibly, "They'reee bacckkk!"
Sure, big deal. Cut and past dialouge from old movies. Can't you be more creative than that.Sharpen up.
Trooper! "He who smelt it, dealt it!"
"The moment in The SHining where Jack sticks his head through the door when he's trying to murder his wife, and says, "I'm Bacccck!"He never says that in the movie. When he comes into their suite with the ax, he says, smiling, "Wendy, I'm home." Later, after he chops a hole in the bathroom door, he sticks his face in the hole and says the most famous (improvised!) line in the film: "Heeeeere's Johnny!"Between the two lines, he says, perhaps appropriately for Hillary:"Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in...Not by the hair on your chinny, chin - chin...Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in!" whereupon he starts chopping the bathroom door.I know every frame of this movie, trust me.
"Cut and past dialouge from old movies."I've actually been typing the dialog from "The Shining" from memory. How scary is that?
Cut and past, eh? Hmmm.....
Only you would pick up on that. I bet you know what it means. Good show.
Right, I haven't seen the film in decades (Shining).Couldn't remember the lines clearly.How about then,"Here's Hillary!"The problem is that most younger voters won't know what on earth it refers to, I guess.Something from Easy Rider might be fun, but that's even further in the past.
"Only you would pick up on that. I bet you know what it means. Good show."Cut and past? I like 'em uncut and present, thank you very much.
I'm not thinking quotes so much as--remember Jack Nicholson as the masochist in Little Shop of Horrors? Probably not.But I do. I'm imagining Hilary as Jonathan Haze's fake-dentist, torturing Nicholson, and Nicholson loving it. (Bill Murray in the musical version.)
Me, I like Jack Nicholson as well as anybody when it comes to offbeat actors playing roles of unhinged characters. But as a political endorsement for Hillary at this point? It has to go down as the essence of way too little way too late.
Trooper, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by women with balls. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Senator Obama? Hillary has a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Edwards, and you curse the Clintons. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Edward's (metaphorical) death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And Hillary's existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want Hillary on that phone, you need Hillary on that phone.She uses words like children, health care, experience. She uses these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a Senator who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that Hillary provides, and then questions the manner in which Hillary provides it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a phone, and stay awake till 3 AM. like Hillary does. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
Dude I am always awake at 3 am. I am usually still puking. Thanks for the quote though.
