Movie quotes

  • (..) "And in this strange..." "...and symbolic..." - "...nature" - How boring is that? 'Where the pure angel merges with the antic Sphinx" I never know if "Sphinx" takes a 'i' or a 'y'? I'm so bored by all this. It's a "I" and it's singular. Do you really have to go through this bullshit? A sphinx, daisies, angels... Would you care for a guy telling you this? Of course, some use a more basic method. What's next? What does this El'onore look like? (..)
