details

The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is much in the Bible against which every instinct of my being rebels, so much that I regret the necessity which has compelled me to read it through from beginning to end. I do not think that the knowledge which I have gained of its history and sources compensates me for the unpleasant details it has forced upon my attention.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In a major matter no details are small.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Behind the complicated details of the world stand the simplicities: God is good, the grown-up man or woman knows the answer to every question, there is such a thing as truth, and justice is as measured and faultless as a clock. Our heroes are simple: they are brave, they tell the truth, they are good swordsmen and they are never in the long run really defeated. That is why no later books satisfy us like those which were read to us in childhood --for those promised a world of great simplicity of which we knew the rules, but the later books are complicated and contradictory with experience; they are formed out of our own disappointing memories.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The remarkable thing is that it is the crowded life that is most easily remembered. A life full of turns, achievements, disappointments, surprises, and crises is a life full of landmarks. The empty life has even its few details blurred, and cannot be remembered with certainty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Providence conceals itself in the details of human affairs, but becomes unveiled in the generalities of history.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Begin to imagine what the desirable outcome would be like. Go over these mental pictures and delineate details and refinements. Play them over and over to yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The seaman tells stories of winds, the ploughman of bulls; the soldier details his wounds, the shepherd his sheep.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To be really great in little things, to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life, is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Dr. Evil: The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.More [08/06/2005 12:08:00]
Dr. Redfield: Just think of your mind as a movie, you can pause, rewind or slow down any details you want.More [08/20/2005 12:08:00]
I'm not one of those people that goes into details of my personal life on national TV to get attention. Some things are better left unsaid.More [03/20/2006 12:03:00]
I had a lot of questions, but they were more about the character than the plot. Greg and I talked a lot about the details of her inner life and the way she coped, a lot more than how I was going to look. Since the story is open to interpretation, I thought it was really important that the character be emotionally accessible, that the audience would be able to identify with her struggle.More [03/23/2006 12:03:00]
“L.A.M.B. is a fashion line that -- fingers crossed -- will just get more and more sophisticated, ... What's different than what's out there is the way I put things together. And, if you look inside the pants, you'll find secret details in there.”More [08/17/2006 12:08:00]
I'm really into the details of the movie's moments and the character's hair and what's in my handbag and what's in the backseat of my car.More [09/13/2006 12:09:00]
My mother was dating this Frenchman. I was 2 years old, and we were living in Ibiza. I never experience details like that in America now.More [11/06/2006 12:11:00]
I don't necessarily feel comfortable divulging the details of my life, but there is always a way to communicate to the people that are listening.More [11/12/2006 12:11:00]
“You don't forget the movies, but you forget the details of them.”More [01/18/2007 12:01:00]
Van Helsing: How do you know me?
Count Vladislaus Dracula: So, would you like me to refresh your memory? A few details from you sordid past?
Count Vladislaus Dracula: [Van Helsing thrusts a crucifix at Dracula. Dracula shrieks and angrily swats it away, then calms down, smiling beatifically, as if nothing happened] Perhaps that is a conversation for another time. But before you go, let me reintroduce myself.
[bows majestically]
Count Vladislaus Dracula: I am Count Vladislaus Dragulia. Born 1422. Murdered 1462.More [03/14/2007 12:03:00]
Graves: We only met briefly, but you left a lasting impression. You see, when your intervention forced me to present the world with a new face, I chose to model the disgusting Gustav Graves on you. I paid attention to details - that unjustifiable swagger, the crass quips, the self-defence mechanism concealing such inadequacy...
James Bond: [holding up his Walther P99] My self-defence mechanism's right here.More [03/28/2007 12:03:00]
Mort's Conscience: Why'd you put it on?
Mort: I don't know.
Mort's Conscience: Maybe he wanted you to.
Mort: Why would he want me to put his hat on?
Mort's Conscience: Maybe he wants you to...
Mort: Maybe he wants me to what?
Mort's Conscience: To get confused.
Mort: Oh, I'm already confused, Pilgrim. Plenty confused. So don't talk to me about confusion.
Mort's Conscience: Wait a minute. Back up just a sec. What about that?
Mort: What about what?
Mort's Conscience: Well, "pilgrim." "Shooter's bay," and the half a dozen other details you've chosen to ignore.
Mort: You know what? You're nuts. I don't need to listen to this shit from you.
Mort's Conscience: Are all these things coincidences?
Mort: I'm wearing his bruises aren't I? Aren't I?
Mort's Conscience: Are you?
Mort: Well...
[Mort checks his arms and the bruises are gone]
Mort: This doesn't make any sense.
Mort's Conscience: Would you like to hear something that does make sense? Call the police. Call Dave Newsome, tell me to come here this second and lock you up before you can do any more damage.
Mort: I'm gonna get a knife and cut you out of me.
Mort's Conscience: Before you kill anyone else.
Mort: I didn't kill anybody.
Mort's Conscience: You had a gun.
Mort: Wasn't loaded.
Mort's Conscience: Really?
Mort: No.
Mort: You almost killed them. You wanted to.More [04/10/2007 12:04:00]
[Bob is explaining an insurance policy loophole to a Mrs. Hogenson]
Bob: [whispering] Listen closely. I'd like to help you but I can't. I'd like to say, take a copy of your policy to Norma Wilcox on... Norma Wilcox, W-I-L-C-O-X... on the third floor, but I can't.
[Mrs. Hogenson scribbles details of Bob's loophole on a small notepad]
Bob: I also do not advise you to fill out and file a WS2475 form with our legal department on the second floor. I would not expect someone to get back to you to resolve the matter quickly. I'd like to help, but there's nothing I can do.
[the old lady tries to thank him for everything, but Bob shushes her]
Bob: [shouts loudly] I'm sorry ma'am, I know you're upset.
[very softly]
Bob: Pretend to be upset.
[old lady starts sobbing very convincingly]More [05/08/2007 12:05:00]
Miranda Priestly: Details of your incompetence do not interest me.More [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Miranda Priestly: I don't understand why it's so difficult to confirm an appointment.
Emily: I know, I'm so sorry, Miranda. I actually did confirm...
Miranda Priestly: The details of your incompetence do not interest me. Tell Simone I'm not going to approve that girl that she sent me for the Brazilian layout. I asked for clean, athletic, smiling; she sent me dirty, tired and paunchy. And RSVP yes to Michael Kors' party, I want the driver to drop me off at 9:30 and pick me up at 9:45 sharp. Then call Natalie at Gloria's Foods and tell her no, for the 40th time, no, I don't want dacquoise, I want tortes filled with warm rhubarb compote. Then call my ex-husband and remind him that the parent/teacher conference at Dalton tonight. Then call my husband. Ask him to please meet me for dinner at that place I went to with Masima. Also, tell Richard I saw all the pictures that he sent for that feature on the female paratroopers and they're all so deeply unattractive. Is it impossible to find a lovely, slender, female paratrooper? Am I reaching for the stars here? Not really. Also I need to see all the things that Nigel has pulled for Gwyneth's second cover try. I wonder if she's lost any of that weight yet.
[seeing Andy]
Miranda Priestly: Who is that?More [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Though details of the book are specific to Connecticut, … what happens on the playground with the mothers (their social competition) is sort of universal. … The irony is that even the women who seem to be the most together are feeling the same sort of insecurity. I think that there’s anxiety felt by women who gave up careers in the city and wonder about the choice, and do that ‘The grass is greener’ thing. There’s this pervasive attitude in America that if you have money nothing can go wrong, which isn’t true … often, economic security in fact is illusory.More [07/23/2007 12:07:00]
“In the past, presidents set up buffers to distance themselves from covert action. But this president, who is breaking down the boundaries between covert action and conventional war, seems to relish the secret findings and the dirty details of operations.”More [08/15/2007 12:08:00]
Serendipity: How? That's the only thing I couldn't figure out.

Audrey: Oh, okay, okay, wake up, wake up.
Daniel: Morning.
Audrey: Wake up. Would you please look at your left hand, please?
Daniel: What?
Audrey: Please!
[sees the ring on his hand]
Daniel: Oh, would you look at that. Oh, you got one, too.
Audrey: Daniel, did we get married last night?
Daniel: Yes, I have a feeling we did. The details are still a little bit fuzzy but the bride was beautiful in her figure-hugging Sarena outfit and... you're not happy.
Audrey: Do I look happy?
Daniel: It's hard to say. I mean, because you never seem to be happy around me and...
Audrey: Oh, it's all coming back. We gotta find the guy who did this and tell him that we didn't mean it.
Daniel: But I did mean it.
Audrey: Of course you didn't, how could you? You don't want to be married to me!More [07/11/2008 12:07:00]
Stanley Kowalski:
How about a few more details on that subject... Let's cop a gander at the bill of sale... What do you mean? She didn't show you no papers, no deed of sale or nothin' like that?... Well then, what was it then? Given away to charity?... Oh I don't care if she hears me. Now let's see the papers... Now listen. Did you ever hear of the Napoleonic code, Stella?... Now just let me enlighten you on a point or two... Now we got here in the state of Louisiana what's known as the Napoleonic code. You see, now according to that, what belongs to the wife belongs to the husband also, and vice versa... It looks to me like you've been swindled baby. And when you get swindled under Napoleonic code, I get swindled too and I don't like to get swindled... Where's the money if the place was sold?

Beauregard 'Pappy' Maverick:
Son, as my old pappy used to say, if you're ever served a rare steak that is intended for someone else, don't bother with ethical details - eat as much as you can before the mistake is discovered.

[Judge Weaver has stopped the testimony by Detective Sergeant James Durgo, State Police, and called the lawyers to his bench]



Judge Weaver:
Mr. Biegler, you finally got your rape into the case, and I think all the details should now be made clear to the jury. What exactly was the undergarment just referred to?



Paul Biegler:
Panties, Your Honor.



Judge Weaver:
Do you expect this subject to come up again?



Paul Biegler:
Yes, Sir.



Judge Weaver:
There's a certain light connotation attached to the word "panties." Can we find another name for them?



Mitch Lodwick:
I never heard my wife call 'em anything else.



Judge Weaver:
Mr. Biegler?



Paul Biegler:
I'm a bachelor, Your Honor.



Judge Weaver:
That's a great help. Mr. Dancer?



Claude Dancer:
When I was overseas during the war, Your Honor, I learned a French word. I'm afraid that might be slightly suggestive.



Judge Weaver:
Most French words are.

Ransom Stoddard:
Marshal, I was wrong the other day. But I was reading up on territorial law, and there it is, right there. Now, I'll draw up the complaint, take care of all the legal details - but you *do* have jurisdiction. Says so right there. So next time he sets foot in this town, you'll arrest him.



Link Appleyard:
Anything you say, Mr. Stoddard. I'll be tickled to... death... *what* was that? Arrest *who*?



Ransom Stoddard:
Liberty Valance.



Link Appleyard:
Arrest Liberty Val... you mean Liberty Valance? Just as I was startin' to get my appetite back.

Color Sgt. Bourne:
They're very tired, sir.


[Chard whirls around]



Lieutenant John Chard:
I don't give a damn! And I want this wall nine feet high, firing steps on the inside. Form details to clear away the Zulu bodies, rebuild the south rampart, keep 'em moving! Do you understand?

Yes sir... very good, sir.

Colonel Kosnov:
[During drinks after a dinner party, with the wives present] It was a long time ago. I'm not sure of the details any longer.



Bresnavitch:
The Colonel is too modest. Imagine. All he actually knew was that three of Sturdevant's men were in a small Polish village. Correct?



Colonel Kosnov:
I think so.



Bresnavitch:
He had to determine which of the 2,300 people in the village were the three he wanted, so he rounded up the entire population. He began to interrogate and execute each of them one by one. Then it seems that when your husband started killing the children one of Sturdevant's men tried to make a run for it. He was caught of course and your husband was able to make him talk, as only he can.

Bob Grimes:

Lt. Coffey:

Marge (referring to Australia):
Do you think this is a country which honors ordinariness?



Dick:
No. Well once...maybe...you know, there was once a time when it was impossible to be different. Anyone with any nouse had to pack up and clear out, but it's not like that anymore. And to keep harking back to it--that's what irritates me about that book. It's just safe territory. It's not going to shake anyone up.



Marge:
Well, it's shaken me up. Maybe you don't read between the lines.



Dick:
I hate nostalgia.



Marge:
It's NOT nostalgia.



Dick:
Where are the people writing about the big picture? Who's coming to grips with some contemporary vision for this place? Can you think of anyone?



Marge:
Meg Moynihan, for one.



Dick:
Oh, Jesus.



Marge:
The trouble with you is you're looking for the big broad brush strokes. Australia can't be contained in the sort of broad sweep you're asking for. Great big visions make very empty pictures if you don't attend to the small brush strokes...the details.



Dick:
So long it's not the details of someone's childhood in Towoomba or tortured adolescence in Woy Woy or... (Marge hits him over the head with a newspaper.)

Okay Lunchbox, let's try this again. We tie you to the roof and you jump off and sail like a Spitfire passing right over the arch nemesis La Fours.

Rory:
Yeah. Kids are cool and all, but getting there seems like a big cosmic joke.

Definitely thought up by a man.



Rory:
My mom said that when she told me where babies come from.



Lane:
My mom still hasn't told me.



Rory:
Really?



Lane:
When my cousin got pregnant, she said it's because an angel brushed its wings against her face.

[Eva accesses some pictures]



Lt. Eva Lee:
It appears we have suffered full scale Soviet invasion. Nearly all of our major cities are under siege and our forces are in complete disarray.


[gets a signal on her headphones]



Lt. Eva Lee:
Hold on commander, I'm getting a special transmission from General Carville at the Pentagon.



Gen. Ben Carville:
I hope you're rested and ready commander. As of 0800 hours you're in control of every satellite, base, tank, airplane, enlisted man, woman and child, in the eastern United States. You answer to the president, and you answer to me. Your ops officer with your lifelines will be the Lieutenant. Your point man for this mission will be Special Agent Tanya.



Special Agent Tanya Adams:
General, I hope that our commander is up to speed, because we have no time to waste.



Gen. Ben Carville:
I'm sure she has every confidence in you commander.



Special Agent Tanya Adams:
[sarcastically] Oh you're sure. Well, it's not your life that's on the line out here.



Gen. Ben Carville:
[laughs slightly] She's the best there is. But, you will get along better with the Soviets. You'll get started immediately. First stop, New York. The lieutenant will give you the details



Lt. Eva Lee:
Not long ago, the soviets have an amphibious landing on Manhattan island and their using their ground troops to systematically take over the city. Fortunately, we still have a hold on fort bradley, but our comlink has been severed. If you can get agent Tanya into bradley, she'll re-establish the link. Good luck commander.

Hal Weidmann:
Love is a bridge built between two people. We want what exists between them to be real. My name is Hal Weidmann. The film you are about to see is Time Over Time, or is it? The details are unimportant. Simply put, the script was shit. I tossed it. I instead decided to let the camera capture real life. I filmed my actors without their knowledge. I let the camera run after takes. I placed hidden cameras around the set. The end result is a story far more involving than anything manufactured by actors and writers. This is real life. The juice. The stink. The glory.

Bernard Quest:
I have been in this company 62 years. In 1933, when I was made Vice-President by Nathan Eads, he promised me that one day I would be given a substantial share in the corporation. In 1942 he died, and when his will was read, I found he had broken his promise to me, and so I decided to kill his daughter Priscilla. She was 15 years old. I decided to strangle her.



Viola Duday:
[screaming] Bernie!



Sarah Jaffee:
[shocked] My God!



Nero Wolfe:
I even worked out the details - where to find a rope, how to employ it, what to do with afterward, and I practiced... I practiced by strangling myself.



Nero Wolfe:
[coughs while Wolfe nods in understanding] But that was ten years ago, and in the end, I finally came to my senses. I didn't kill her then and... Oh, what's the point? I'm too old, my children are grown, and I have everything I need.



Nero Wolfe:
[laconically] Oh, perhaps you should have stangled yourself.
