(Still at the Movies)

I’m continuing to wade through The Movies, hoping to get finished with this by Mid-July and start on something else. Movies are now complete through ‘L’ (1,152 entries).


Another sampling:

There's someone out there for everyone - even if you need a pickaxe, a compass, and night goggles to find them.
  Steve Martin as Harris in L.A. Story

Ain't it a shame how some of God's children have it so easy, while others have it so hard?

Take me home momma and put me to bed. I have seen enough to know I have seen too much.
  David L. Lander as Radio Sportscaster in A League of their Own

A man, he gives wood, bricks. In time, what does he get? A chapel - a place where his children can receive the sacraments. To these men, for their children to have faith, it is important. To me, it is insurance. To me, life is here on this earth. I cannot see further, so I cannot believe further. But, if they are right about the hereafter, I have paid my insurance, Senor.
  Stanley Adams as Juan in Lilies of the Field

His destructive programming is taking effect. He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone's left shoe.

I was feeling tight in the shoulders and neck, so I called down and had a Shiatsu massage in my room. And the tightness has completely disappeared and been replaced by unbelievable pain.
  Bill Murray as Bob in Lost in Translation

The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here! Page 73 - Johnson, Navin R.! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
  Steve Martin as Navin R. Johnson in The Jerk

Twenty-six years buried in the deepest, darkest jungle and I still became my father.
  Robin Williams as Alan Parrish from Jumanji

Ian: God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs...
Ellie: Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth...
