Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Stanley Spadowski: Life is like a mop. Sometimes life gets full of dirt and crud and hairballs and things and you gotta clean it out. You gotta stick it in here and rinse it off and start all over again. And sometimes life sticks to the floor so much that a mop, a mop, it's not good enough. You gotta get down there with like a toothbrush, you know, and you gotta really scrub 'cause you gotta get it off. But if that doesn't work, you can't give up. You gotta stand right up. You gotta run to a window and say, "These floors are dirty as hell, and I'm not gonna take it any more."More [06/07/2007 12:06:00]

Henry Van Cleve: If you'd walked into a restaurant I would've become a waiter, if you'd walked into a burning building I'dve become a fireman, if you'd walked into an elevator I'dve stopped it between two floors and we've spent the rest of our lives there ... Please forgive me but you can't walk out of my life like that.More [02/26/2008 12:02:00]
Harry: [Harry and Marv have captured Kevin outside the Plaza hotel] We spent nine months in jail, thinking we had the worst luck in the universe. We were wrong, little buddy.
Marv: We're busted out of the klink and we're doing fine. We're going to be doing even better. Because we're not robbing houses anymore. Now we're robbing toy stores. At midnight tonight, we're hitting Duncan's Toy Chest. Five floors of cash. Then after that we get a couple of phony passports then it's off to Rio...
Harry: Marv! Marv! You want to shut up?
Marv: What's the difference? He's not going to talk to anyone. Except maybe a fish. Or the undertaker.More [03/22/2008 12:03:00]
Jim Garrison: So what really happened that day? Let's just for a moment speculate shall we? We have the epileptic seizure around 12:15, p.m. distracting the police making it easier for the shooters to move into their places. The epileptic later vanished, never checking into a hospital. The A-Team gets on the sixth floor of the depository. They were refurbishing the floors that week, which allowed unknown workmen access to the building. They move quickly into position just minutes before the shooting. The spotter on the radio talking to the other two teams has the best overall view, the God spot. B-Team one shooter and one spotter with radio gear and access to the building, moves into the lower floor of the Dal-Tex building. The third team, the C-Team moves into the picket fence behind the Grassy Knoll, where the shooter and the spotter are first spotted by the late Lee Bowers in the watch tower of the rail yard. They have the best position of all. Kennedy is close and on a flat low trajectory. Part of this team is a coordinator who has flashed security credentials at people chasing them out of the parking lot. Probably 2-3 more men are in the crowd on Elm. 10-12 men. Three shooters. Three spotters. The triangulation of fire that Clay Shaw and David Ferrie discussed two months before. They have walked the plaza. They know every inch. They have calibrated their sight. They have practiced on moving targets. They are ready. Kennedy's motorcade makes the turn from Main onto Houston. It's gonna be a turkey shoot. They don't shoot him coming up Houston, which is the easiest shot for a single shot from the Book Depository. They Wait. They wait until he gets in the killing zone, between three rifles. Kennedy makes the final turn from Houston onto Elm, slowing down to some 11 miles an hour. The shooters across Dealy Plaza tighten, taking their aim, waiting for the radio to say "Green! Green!" or "Abort! Abort!". The first shot rings out, sounding like a backfire it misses the car completely. Frame 161, Kennedy stops waiving as he hears something. Connaly's head turns slightly to the right. Frame 193, the second shot hits Kennedy in the throat from the front. Frame 225, the President emerging from behind the road sign, you can see that he's obviously been hit, raising his arms to his throat. The third shot, frame 232, takes Kennedy in the back pulling him downward and forward. Connaly you'll notice shows no signs at all of being hit. He is visibly holding his Stetson, which is impossiable if his wrist has been shattered. Connaly is turning here now, frame 238 the fourth shot. It misses Kennedy and takes Connaly in the back. This is the shot that proves there were two rifles. Connaly yells out "My God! They are going to kill us all." Somewhere around this time another shot that misses the car completely, strikes James Tague down by the underpass. The car brakes. The sixth and fatal shot, frame 313 takes Kennedy in the head from the front. This is the key shot. The President going back and to his left. Shot from the front and right. Totally inconstant with the shot from the Book Depository. So what happens then? Pandemonium.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
Herman Ferguson: [Dredd trips over Fergie, who is fleeing the block war at Heavenly Haven, and is now judging him] 5 years? But I had to! They were killing each other in there!
Judge Dredd: You could have gone out the window.

Judge Dredd: Maybe, but it's legal.More [05/15/2008 12:05:00]

[first lines]


[pre-opening-credits sequence; views of skyscrapers]



Narrator:
It is always up there, close to the clouds, on the topmost floors of the sky-reaching towers of big business. And because it is high in the sky, you may think that those who work there are somehow above and beyond the tensions and temptations of the lower floors. This is to say that it isn't so.

Mrs. Darling:
George, we must keep Nana,


[whispers]



Mrs. Darling:
I'll tell you why.


[to the kids]



Mrs. Darling:
Get ready for bed, children, now run along...


[children leave]



Mrs. Darling:
George, tonight I saw a face at the window.



Mr. Darling:
Face at the window, two floors up?



Mrs. Darling:
It was the face of a little boy, he was trying to get in.



Mr. Darling:
That's impossible.



Mrs. Darling:
But that's not the first time I've seen that boy.



Mr. Darling:
Oh ho?



Mrs. Darling:
The first time was a week ago, I remember because it was Nana's night off... I was sitting over there by the fire, when suddenly I felt a draft, as though the window were open... I looked... and I saw that boy in the room, I screamed. Just then Nana came in and sprang at him at once, the boy leapt through the window, Nana closed it quickly, but it was too late to catch him.



Mr. Darling:
I thought so.



Mrs. Darling:
But wait! *He* escaped, but his shadow hadn't time to get out. I hid it...


[takes it out of Wendy's dresser drawer]



Mrs. Darling:
I rolled it up, and here it is.



Mr. Darling:
Ah ha, hmmm... well I don't think it's anyone we know, though he does look a scoundrel.



Mrs. Darling:
You know, George, I think he comes back trying to get his shadow.



Mr. Darling:
I dare say...



Mrs. Darling:
But wait, I haven't told you all... the boy was not quite alone, he was accompanied by a... well I really don't know how to describe it... by a bolt of light no bigger than my fist, it darted around the room, like a living thing.



Mr. Darling:
This is most unusual.



Mrs. Darling:
George, what can it mean?



Mr. Darling:
What indeed? What indeed?

Ric Lansing:
You're taking him?



Det. Andy Capelli:
Yeah. That'll eliminate the rescue chopper from making a final trip.

Doug Roberts:
I thought we were building something where people could work and live and be SAFE! If you had to cut costs, why didn't you cut floors instead of corners?



James Duncan:
Now listen. Any decisions that were made for the use of alternate building materials were made because I as a builder have a right to make those decisions. If I remained within the building code and god-dammit I did!



Doug Roberts:
[Chuckling] Building code? Jesus. Building code. Come on, Dunc, I mean now that's a standard cop-out for when you're in trouble. See, I was crawling around up there. I mean duct holes weren't fire-stopped! Corridors without fire doors in them, sprinklers that won't work, and electrical system that's good for what? I mean it's good for starting fires! Phew, where was I when all this was going on? Because I'm just as guilty as you and that god-damned son-in-law of yours! What do they call it when you kill people?

Could we, uh... talk to Colonel Kurtz?



Photojournalist:
Hey, man, you don't talk to the Colonel. You listen to him. The man's enlarged my mind. He's a poet-warrior in the classic sense. I mean sometimes he'll... uh... well, you'll say "hello" to him, right? And he'll just walk right by you. He won't even notice you. And suddenly he'll grab you, and he'll throw you in a corner, and he'll say, "do you know that 'if' is the middle word in life? If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you"... I mean I'm no, I can't... I'm a little man, I'm a little man, he's... he's a great man. I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas...

Roland Dalton:
Once upon a time all I planned to do was play the tenor sax. Forever. That's it. Fillsville, man. But my dad and everybody said I was a sap, there was no money in it, so I go to law school, and I am here now, gone from another place. But I could play the tenor sax all day and all night. Everything was possible. And I was very certain that at any moment, I was going to find the love of my life.



Richie Marks:
The love of your life?



Roland Dalton:
Yeah.



Richie Marks:
I met the love of my life once. Only I killed her dog before I got a chance to tell her. Man, she was everything I ever wanted. I met her at Shakespeare in the park. Told her I was a lawyer - that line seemed to work for you. Rained like hell that day. I had an umbrella. We went back to her apartment, she went to the bathroom, I sat on the couch. She had this great big damn dog. Dog had a ball. I threw the ball, the dog brought it back. I threw it again, harder. I'll never forget the sound of that dog's paws on the newly waxed floor. How was I supposed to know she'd left the window open? The dog fell thirteen floors and landed on a parked car. I looked out the window, took one look, threw up, and left. Left. Without ever tellin' her she was the one.



Roland Dalton:
Happy is the fleeting hope of youth.



Richie Marks:
Who said that?



Roland Dalton:
Me. I'm gonna take the streets, Richie.
