If I were asked to say what is at once the most important production of Art and the thing most to be longed for; I should answer; A beautiful House; and if I were further asked to name the production next in importance and the thing next to be longed for; I should answer; A beautiful Book. To enjoy good houses and good books in self-respect and decent comfort, seems to me to be the pleasurable end towards which all societies of human beings ought now to struggle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term -- meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching -- there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The sick man must follow his illness to the place where it is treated. He is set aside in one of the technical and secret zones (hospitals, prisons, refuse dumps) which relieve the living of everything that might hinder the chain of production and consumption, and which repair and select what can be sent back up to the surface of progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every production of genius must be the production of enthusiasm.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Imagine spending four billion years stocking the oceans with seafood, filling the ground with fossil fuels, and drilling the bees in honey production -- only to produce a race of bed-wetters!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By bourgeoisie is meant the class of modern capitalists, owners of the means of social production and employers of wage labor. By proletariat, the class of modern wage laborers who, having no means of production of their own, are reduced to selling their labor power in order to live.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called equality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced -- by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Melancholy has ceased to be an individual phenomenon, an exception. It has become the class privilege of the wage earner, a mass state of mind that finds its cause wherever life is governed by production quotas.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Managers have traditionally developed the skills in finance, planning, marketing and production techniques. Too often the relationships with their people have been assigned a secondary role. This is too important a subject not to receive first line attention.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The salvation of a single soul is more important than the production or preservation of all the epics and tragedies in the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Constant revolutionizing of production distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses, his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Like everything else in nature, music is a becoming, and it becomes its full self, when its sounds and laws are used by intelligent man for the production of harmony, and so made the vehicle of emotion and thought.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It has been my fate in a long life of production to be credited chiefly with the equivocal virtue of industry, a quality so excellent in morals, so little satisfactory in art.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Daily life is governed by an economic system in which the production and consumption of insults tends to balance out.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Corky St. Clair: My first show was Barefoot in the Park, which was an absolute smash, but my production on the stage of Backdraft was what really got them excited. This whole idea of 'In Your Face' theatre really affected them. The conceptualization, the whole abstraction, the obtuseness of this production to me was what was interesting. I wanted the audience to feel the heat from the fire, the fear, because people don't like fire, poked, poked in their noses, you know when you get a cinder from a barbeque right on the end of your nose and you kind of make that face, you know, that's not a good thing, and I wanted them to have the sense memory of that. So during the show I had someone burn newspapers and send it through the vents in the theatre. And well, they freaked out, and 'course the fire Marshall came over and they shut us down for a couple of days.More [10/22/2005 12:10:00]
Now it's a fully realized production but for the fact that we're holding our scripts in our hand and some of us used them, and some of us didn't and you have to by union rules hold the script. You don't have to use them but you gotta hold them.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
We started rehearsals at the Royal Opera House. I hadn't ever done a two-person play before. Woody agrees that it's probably the most demanding production that we've both done.More [05/23/2006 12:05:00]
I was looking to become more proactive with my career because I wasn't crazy with some of the scripts I was getting - this was before Blow and Hannibal - so I decided to start my own production company.More [06/08/2006 12:06:00]
So I decided to form a production company with my wife and our partner Diane.More [06/08/2006 12:06:00]
My first film goes into production in October. It's called White Boy Shuffle and it's based on a novel about a young black kid and it's sort of reminiscent of Catcher in the Rye.More [06/09/2006 12:06:00]
I think if Unchained Melody does what I think it can do, I think there is an audience out there that would heave a sigh of relief, that finally there is a melody and orchestration, production and a vocalist that is giving them a song that they can just listen to ... and not be annoyed by the vocal acrobatics that vocalists seem to think is impressive.More [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
The shows at the Hilton are the most exciting shows I've ever done. The stage is huge, but the theater is intimate, so we can have a magnificent production and still connect with the audience.More [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
I have a production company. I get to spend time with friends, read, and go to more ballgames than most people.More [11/02/2006 12:11:00]
For me, it's important to re-sing the vocals and make sure that the production value is right so that it comes out truthful in that area, you know what I mean? I don't understand why people shy away from it but it's to each his own.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
He doesn't make it so complicated but just really allows the lyric to come through even though there's a lot of production going on. I think that's the key and that's the magic, it's making sure that people could still connect with the lyrics while they're on the dance floor.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
It was always something I knew I was capable of and from an early age my mother was involved in the film industry. She used to work at a production company. So I was exposed to a renaissance period of films in New Zealand back in the early 80's.More [11/23/2006 12:11:00]
Eventually though, I'd like to have my own production company. Then I could create great opportunities not only for myself, but for other actors as well.More [12/22/2006 12:12:00]
Mack: [after having watched three Pixar films and noticing that each one contains John Ratzenberger] Hey... they're just using the same actor over and over. What kind of cut-rate production is this?More [03/22/2007 12:03:00]
Mayor: Now Drebin, I don't want any trouble like you had on the South Side like last year, that's my policy.
Frank: Well, when I see five weirdos dressed in togas, stabbing a man in the middle of the park in front of a full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards, that's my policy.
Mayor: That was a Shakesphere In The Park Production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed five actors! Good ones!More [03/26/2007 12:03:00]
At the time, 1980, people regarded actresses involved with production with a certain amount of fear, resentment and anger.More [04/02/2007 12:04:00]
Marcus Burnett: Hey man where-where-where's your cup holder?
Mike Lowrey: I don't have one.
Marcus Burnett: What the f- w'you mean you don't have one? Eighty thousand dollars for this car and you ain't got no damn cup holder?
Mike Lowrey: It's $105,000 and this happens to be one of the fastest production cars on the planet. Zero to sixty in four seconds, sweetie. It's a limited edition.
Marcus Burnett: You damn right it's limited. No cup holder, no back seat. Just a shiny dick with two chairs in it. I guess we the balls just draggin' the fuck along.More [04/09/2007 12:04:00]
Bartleby: You are responsible for raising an icon which draws worship from the Lord. You have broken the first commandment. Not only that, I'm afraid not a one of you passes for a decent human being. Your continued existence is a mockery of morality. Like you, Mr. Burton. Last year cheated on your wife of 17 years 8 times. You even had sex with her best friend while you were supposed to be home watching the kids.
Loki: In the bed that you and your wife share, no less.
Bartleby: Mr. Newman - you got your girlfriend drunk at last year's Christmas party and then paid a kid from the mail room to have sex with her while she was passed out, just so you could break up with her guilt-free when she sobbingly confessed in the morning. She killed herself two months later. Mr. Brace disowned his gay son. Very compassionate, Mr. Brace. Mr. Ray put his mother in a third-rate nursing home and then used the profits from the sale of her home to buy an oriental rug for himself. Heavens. Mr. Barker flew to Thailand on the company account to have sex with an eleven year old boy. Mr. Holtzman okayed the production of Mooby Dolls from materials he knew to be toxic and unsafe, because it was - survey says? - less costly.
[sees the female board member]
Bartleby: You, on the other hand, are an innocent. You lead a good life. Good for you. But you, Mr. Whitland, you have more skeletons in your closet than the rest of this assembled party. I cannot even mention them aloud.
[whispers something in Whitland's ear]
Loki: You're his father, you sick fuck.
[Whitland starts crying]More [09/20/2007 12:09:00]

Marxism is an interpretation of history which explains the progress of society as a product of the expansion of the forces of production of the material means of life, that is, the development of economy.More [01/04/2008 12:01:00]
The social system grows rigid but the productive forces continue to expand, and conflict ensues between the forces of production and the social conditions of production.More [01/04/2008 12:01:00]
Bonnie Donaly: Donovan, is everything alright?
Donovan Donaly: The production meeting was put off. Who's here?
Bonnie Donaly: Here?
Donovan Donaly: Hmm... Who owns that piece-of-shit van out there?
Bonnie Donaly: Oh! It's just a guy. You know... going door to door. Selling... pool cleaner.
Donovan Donaly: So why'd he lock himself in the den?
Bonnie Donaly: Well, he... Oh, God. Remember my friend Ollie?
Donovan Donaly: Ollie Olerud? Short, cretinous wanker? Oh! Ollie's in there?
Bonnie Donaly: Yes.
Donovan Donaly: I see. Well, I'm glad he finally got himself a job. I'd always picked him as some sort of dead beat, but... happy to be proved wrong. So he's selling pool cleaner now? Well... this is the neighbourhood for that. Just door to door, running low on chlorine. That kind of thing. It's quite a coincidence him just dropping by and you two knowing each other so well.
Bonnie Donaly: Donovan, please. Let's just all talk. I mean, I think...
Ollie Olerud: How you doin', Donovan? How you doin', man?
Donovan Donaly: G'day, Ollie. I'm great. You?
Ollie Olerud: I can't complain man.
Donovan Donaly: Excellent. Well, let's get right down to it, then, shall we? We'll take a couple of vacuum hoses. We probably need a new filter round about now. Maybe... Wait a minute, darling. Do we actually have a swimming pool?More [04/21/2008 12:04:00]
There's editing, and scripts to read and edit, and casting, and all the elements of production that just sort of take up the normal downtime that you would have as an actor. So there's not a lot of that for me.More [04/30/2008 12:04:00]

Chaka's Production Assistant: Here's your coffee sir.
Chaka: Did you spit in it?
Chaka's Production Assistant: I didn't spit in it sir.
Chaka: Any boogers in it?
Chaka's Production Assistant: There's no boogers in it sir.
Chaka: You went to film school didn't you? Must piss you off to see a black man runnin' a big old production like this, huh? Went to film school. Does your daddy know you give a nigga his coffee? Must kill him, doesn't it!
Chaka's Production Assistant: There's no boogers in it sir.
Chaka: Then taste it. Taste the booger flavor. I know it's in there!More [05/01/2008 12:05:00]
Newscaster: Rams plagued by fumbles as earthquakes rock Los Angeles. Film at eleven.

Judge: Young lady, do you realize that you're guilty of contempt of court?
Betsy Brown: I'm awfully sorry, Mr. Judge, but it just made me mad to hear Miss Wendling say those things about my friends. They're not true. They're wonderful actors, just wonderful!
Judge: This young lady doesn't seem to agree with you, Miss Wendling.
Betsy Brown: That's because she never saw them act, did you, Miss Wendling? And if you saw them act, Mr. Judge, if you saw Jimmy and his Jazz Bandits and everyone, you'd think they were wonderful, too!
Perry: Your honor, if it pleases the court...
Judge: Just a minute. I believe this court could be saved a lot of time and argument by following the splendid suggestion that has just been made. It seems the immediate issue in this case is whether the plaintiff's wish to invest his money in a theatrical production is a sound one. I want to see the show right here in this courtroom tomorrow!More [07/29/2008 12:07:00]

MGM Crime Reporter:
Once again, as the MGM crime reporter, it is my privilege to bring you another episode in our Crime Does Not Pay series. For obvious reasons, the events and characters depicted herein are fictitious. My I present Mr. Jack Sampson, special agent in charge of a field division office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

FBI Agent Jack Sampson:
Our war program, the most unprecedented in history, calls not only for the production of tanks and guns, planes and ships, but also for the building of a defense against enemy agents within our borders, agents who once again threaten, as they did in 1917. Let us review a typical cast that began in the early morning hours of November 29th, 1941, in a large industrial plant, where a quantity of ferro-manganese, an ore vitally essential in the manufacture of machine tools, was awaiting the furnace...

McDonald Walling:
We'll have a line of low-priced furniture, a new and different line - as different from anything we're making today as a modern automobile is different from a covered wagon. That's what you want Walt, isn't it - what you've always wanted? Merchandise that will sell because it had beauty and function and value - not because the buyers like your scotch or think that you're a good egg. The kind of stuff that you, Jesse, will feel in your guts when you know it's coming off your production line. A kind of product that you will be able to budget to the nearest hundredth of a cent, Shaw, because it will be scientifically and efficiently designed. And something you will be proud to have your name on, Miss Tredway.

Lewis Boggs:
You may not understand exactly what it means, but since I have been working in this factory I have been making a time and motion study.

Oh I know what it means Mr Lewis and if you've got the time I've certainly got the motion.

Lewis Boggs:
Don't think I haven't noticed it Mrs Moore, especially in your main production department.

Chloe Moore:

James Morrison:
Christ, what a crew. Take a look at Madeleine True. People flocked to the movies she made, loving the cutie-pie parts she played. She was every man's sweetheart, every woman's guide. Venus... and Adonis, which she never tried to hide. Men dreamed of a real-life wife like this adorable thespian.

[Madeleine makes her way over to two women and begins to dance with them]

James Morrison:
Poor fools they.

James Morrison:
The typical pair of minor movie producers stood engrossed, bewailing high production cost, each of which had suffered most. In twenty minutes each had lost the sum of 60 million dollars. After which they stood, panting, tragic-eyed, mopping at sadly wilted collars.

James Morrison:
Then Jackie, perfect of form and face. In his veins flowed the blood of more than one race. He left a subtle trail of scent, floating behind him as he went. An Apache dancer, with a special act, New York or Paris, his house was packed. He'd brought marijuana for all to puff, and later he'd bring out the stronger stuff. Cocaine, morphine, Turkish hash... all the makings of a proper bash.

James Morrison:
Poor Bertha. Now Jackie's ex-partner in dance. He'd tossed her around on his last tour of France 'till she fractured a leg, now she walks with a limp. But she still works for Jack. She's his whore, he's her pimp.

Laureen Hobbs:
Don't fuck with my distribution costs! I'm making a lousy two-fifteen per segment and I'm already deficiting twenty-five grand a week with Metro! I'm paying William Morris ten percent off the top, and I'm giving this turkey ten thou per segment, and another five to this fruitcake! And Helen, don't start no shit about a piece again! I'm paying Metro twenty-thousand for all foreign and Canadian distribution, and that's after recoupment! The Communist Party's not gonna see a nickel of this goddamn show until we go into syndication!

Helen Miggs:
C'mon Laureen. The party's in for seventy-five hundred a week of the production expenses.

Laureen Hobbs:
I'm not giving this pseudoinsurrectionary sedentarian a piece of my show! I'm not giving him script approval, and I sure as shit ain't gotten him into my distribution charges!

Mary Ann Gifford:
[screaming] You fucking fascist! Did you see the film we made of the San Marino jail breakout, demonstrating the rising up of the seminal prisoner class infrastructure?

Laureen Hobbs:
You can blow the seminal prisoner class infrastructure out your ass! I'm not knockin' down my goddamn distribution charges!

Great Ahmed Kahn:

Work out what can be done if one of them is hijacked.

Don't the armed forces have some ideas in that department?

Undoubtedly. But an oil production platform isn't a building or an aeroplane. It's miles out to sea and you can't approach it without being seen or heard unless you come from below.

Only a man of superior intellect is likely to think of a satisfactory way of hijacking a platform or a rig.


Therefore, I must put myself in his position and devide a means of doing so. And having done that, I simply work out how to overpower myself!

Hey, who is this guy?

He just jumped in the car.

Yeah well he can jump out. Come on!

I'm an excellent driver.

That's good. Come on! Susanna, why'd you let him get in this car? It's not a toy.

He says he drives this car.

Dad lets me drive slow on the driveway every Saturday. 'Course the seats were originally brown leather now they're a pitiful red.

[surprised] Hey, these seats were brown leather. You know this car?

I know this car.

How do you know this car?

It's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster. Straight 8. Fireball 8. Only 8,985 production models. Dad lets me drive slow on the driveway. But not on Monday, definitely not on Monday.

Who's your dad?

Sanford Babbitt. 10961 Beachcrest Street, Cincinnati Ohio.

That's my address. Hey, who's your mother?

Eleanor Babbitt. Died January 5, 1965 after short and sudden illness.

Who the hell are you?
