There are flood and drought over the eyes and in the mouth, dead water and dead sand contending for the upper hand. The parched eviscerate soil gapes at the vanity of toil, laughs without mirth. This is the death of the earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A few more days, and this essay will follow the Defensio Populi to the dust and silence of the upper shelf... For a month or two it will occupy a few minutes of chat in every drawing-room, and a few columns in every magazine; and it will then be withdrawn, to make room for the forthcoming novelties.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the book of life every page has two sides: we human beings fill the upper side with our plans, hopes and wishes, but providence writes on the other side, and what it ordains is seldom our goal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Trisha: I wanted to thank you for the beautiful drawing you did of me.

Trisha: It's hanging in my *bedroom*.

Trisha: Yeah... it's really... neat.More [08/31/2005 12:08:00]
I love my accent, I thought it was useful in Gone In 60 Seconds because the standard villain is upper class or Cockney. My Northern accent would be an odd clash opposite Nic Cage.More [04/21/2006 12:04:00]
I also do push-ups when I can, but I normally don't work out my upper body except when I'm lifting my kids, which usually is enough!More [08/13/2006 12:08:00]
I'm a little top heavy, so I have to pay attention to that area. I think it was from my years of swimming in school when I was a kid and it just overdeveloped my upper body. In fact, when I started modeling, my back was so developed, I could not fit into any dresses.More [10/04/2006 12:10:00]

Joe Fox: Hey, you know what? We should announce ourselves to the neighborhood. Just let them know, here we come.
Kevin: Oh, no, this is the Upper West Side, man. We might as well tell 'em we're opening up a - a crack house. They're gonna hate us. Soon as they hear, they're gonna be lining up...
Joe Fox, Kevin: - to picket the big bad chain store...
Kevin: - that's out to destroy...
Joe Fox: - everything they hold dear.
Kevin: Yeah.
Joe Fox: Do you know what, we are gonna seduce them. We're gonna seduce them with our square footage, and our discounts, and ourdeep armchairs, and...

Joe Fox, Kevin: - but we'll get 'em in the end.
Joe Fox: Do you know why?

Sebastian: You AMAZE me.
Kathryn: Eat me, Sebastian. It's okay for guys like you and Court to fuck everyone but when I do it, I get dumped for innocent little twits like Cecile. God forbid I exude confidence and enjoy sex. Do you think I relish the fact that I have to act like Mary Sunshine 24/7 so I can be considered a lady? I'm the Marcia fucking Brady of the Upper East Side, and sometimes I want to kill myself. So there's your psychoanalysis, Dr. Freud. Now tell me are you in, or are you out?More [04/18/2007 12:04:00]
Lady Bracknell: I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delecate, exotic fruit. Touch it, and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did it would prove a serious threat to the upper classes, and probably lead ot acts of violence in Grosvenor Square.More [04/20/2007 12:04:00]

Jack: I know nothing, Lady Bracknell.
Lady Bracknell: I am pleased to hear it. I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a very delicate exotic fruit. Touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately, in England at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever.

When the timer in the back goes off, your mouth will be permanently ripped open. Think of it like a reverse bear trap. Here, I'll show you. There is only one key to open the device. It's in the stomach of your dead cellmate. Look around Amanda. Know that I'm not lying. Better hurry up. Live or die, make your choice.More [06/25/2007 12:06:00]
"Mud": How could you invite her over?! She's going to find out!

Arkady Renko: I'm just a plodding investigator, no style. Completely out of my depth. Oh, yes. Three bodies, three people, shot down and mutilated in Gorky Park, and me, I have food on my lip.
Jack Osborne: Not even caviar at that. I somehow feel that the executioner, whoever he may be, would have preferred somebody, a more nimble opponent.More [01/05/2008 12:01:00]

Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: Subject, Karl Ruprecht Kroenen. Born in Munich, 1897. Suffered from a masochistic compulsion commonly known as "surgical addiction". Both eyelids surgically removed, along with his upper and lower lip, making speech impossible. The blood in his veins dried up decades ago. Only dust remains.
[he removes a revolving key from Kroenen's heart]
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: Four broken vertebrae. A steel rod inserted into his pelvis kept him upright... what horrible will could keep such a creature as this alive?More [03/05/2008 12:03:00]

Dr. Wells: I'm sorry if I'm in your way.
Natasha: [to Saxton] Excuse me, I have no ticket and I have to get out of Shanghai. I'm sure I can make it worth your while.
Dr. Wells: The young lady's in trouble.
Professor Saxton: [climbing into his berth] Well, what do you suggest we do about it?
Dr. Wells: Couldn't you - couldn't you double up with somebody else?
Professor Saxton: Miss Jones?
Dr. Wells: Steady on.
Natasha: [settling into Wells' berth] I'm sure we can get on very well together.More [03/28/2008 12:03:00]
Lt. Commander Block: Every aerial photo and recon report indicate a defensive arsenal in the D, and perhaps negative C, categories. There's also some anti-aircraft squadrons. They can send up an ack-ack umbrella high enough to make any attack ineffective.
Admiral Benson: I don't have a clue what you're talkin' about, Phil. Not a fucking clue. I have a shell the size of a fist in my head. Pork Chop Hill. The only way I can make this goddamn toupee to stay on is by magnetizing the entire upper left quadrant of my skull, so you just go ahead and do what you do.More [03/30/2008 12:03:00]

[Hooper is examining the remains of the first victim - describes the post-mortem into his tape recorder]
Hooper: The height and weight of the victim can only be estimated from the partial remains. The torso has been severed in mid-thorax; there are no major organs remaining...
Hooper: Right arm has been severed above the elbow with massive tissue loss in the upper musculature... partially denuded bone remaining...
Hooper: [to the m.e. and Brody] This was no boat accident!
Hooper: [to Brody] Did you notify the Coast Guard about this?
Brody: No. It was only local jurisdiction.
Hooper: [continues post-mortem] The left arm, head, shoulders, sternum and portions of the rib cage are intact...
Hooper: [to Brody] Do not smoke in here, thank you very much.
Hooper: [lifts up the severed arm] This is what happens. It indicates the non-frenzied feeding of a large squalus - possibly Longimanus or Isurus glauca. Now... the enormous amount of tissue loss prevents any detailed analysis; however the attacking squalus must be considerably larger than any normal squalus found in these waters. Didn't you get on a boat and check out these waters?
Brody: No.
Hooper: Well, this is not a boat accident! And it wasn't any propeller; and it wasn't any coral reef; and it wasn't Jack the Ripper! It was a shark.More [04/29/2008 12:04:00]

You've got all the arrogance of your class, haven't you?



Tracy Lord:
What have classes to do with it? What do they matter except for the people in them? George comes from the so-called lower class, Dexter, the upper. Well?



Macaulay Connor:
Well...



Tracy Lord:
Mac the night watchman is a prince among men, Uncle Willie is a... pincher. Upper and lower my eye. I'll take the lower, thanks.



Macaulay Connor:
If you can't get a drawing room.



Tracy Lord:
What does that mean?



Macaulay Connor:
My mistake.



Tracy Lord:
Decidedly. You're insulting!

Sorry.



Tracy Lord:
Oh, don't apologize!

J. Miller:
You should visit England one day. You may change your mind.



Bridie Quilty:
There's no need. I've an aunt there who has told me all about it. She says the upper classes are cringing and always moaning about their troubles, and the lower classes are arrogant and think they own the Earth.



J. Miller:
I thought it was the other way round.



Bridie Quilty:
My aunt runs a servants' registry office.



J. Miller:
Ah!



Bridie Quilty:
There's no "ah" about it. She hates the whole lot of them, and so do I. My father fought for Ireland against the English in 1916, and if I ever get the chance I shall do the same.



J. Miller:
For a subject of a neutral country, aren't you being a little belligerent?



Bridie Quilty:
There's nothing belligerent about it. It's entirely a question of which side I'm neutral on.

Liked it? He called it a dirty old farm, and he kept tryin' to run home, didn't he? So let him! Honestly, who cares about a drip like that?



Spin Evans:
Why don't you stick your head in a bucket?



Rick:
Boy, that guy didn't even cry.

[Andrews hesitates]



Robbie Lucas:
I'm not the panicking kind.



Andrews:
The ship has about an hour to live. A little more, if some of the upper bulkheads hold, but not much more. Get your wife and children into the boats.



Robbie Lucas:
Thank you.

George Washington McLintock:
Becky! Come here. Somethin' I ought to tell you. Guess now's as good a time as any. You're going to have every young buck west of the Missouri around here tryin' to marry you - mostly because you're a handsome filly, but partly because I own everything in this country from here to there. They'll think you're going to inherit it. Well, you're not. I'm going to leave most of it to, well, to the nation really, for a park where no lumbermen'll cut down all the trees for houses with leaky roofs. Nobody'll kill all the beaver for hats for dudes nor murder the buffalo for robes. What I'm going to give you is a 500 cow spread on the Upper Green River. Now that may not seem like much, but it's more than we had, your mother and I. Some folks are gonna say I'm doin' all this so I can sit up in the hereafter and look down on a park named after me, or that I was disappointed in you - didn't want you to get all that money. But the real reason, Becky, is because I love you, and I want you and some young man to have what I had, because all the gold in the United States Treasury and all the harp music in heaven can't equal what happens between a man and a woman with all that growin' together. I can't explain it any better than that.

Gen. Yevgraf Zhivago:
[narrating over a military parade in Moscow] In bourgeois terms, it was a war between the Allies and Germany. In Bolshevik terms, it was a war between the Allied and German upper classes - and which of them won was of total indifference. My task was to organize defeat, so as to hasten the onset of revolution. I enlisted under the name of Petrov. The party looked to the peasant conscript soldiers - many of whom were wearing their first real pair of boots. When the boots had worn out, they'd be ready to listen. When the time came, I was able to take three whole battalions out of the front lines with me - the best day's work I ever did. But for now, there was nothing to be done. There were too many volunteers. Most of it was mere hysteria.

Susan Harper:
I don't want any frug lessons.



Lew Harper:
Of course you do, dear lady. Why just think how t'riffic you'll feel next time you and your husband try frugging...


[starts to break up, chuckling at his own humor]



Lew Harper:
how endlessly feminine you'll feel...


[starts to really break up]



Susan Harper:
[she has recognized Harper's voice and is paying him back now] My husband is dead!



Lew Harper:
[not sure where this is going] Well, that's too bad, as a matter of fact...



Susan Harper:
[gaining the upper hand in this joke] No... as a matter of fact, you're wrong. His death did nothing but serve the cause of mankind. He was a fool, a sadist, a functioning pathological pervert... He was grotesque in all ways. Can a soul be atrocious?


[Harper has lost control and covers the phone, chuckling]
