Such reproductions may not interest the reader; but after all, this is my autobiography, not his; he is under no obligation to read further in it; he was under none to begin. A modest or inhibited autobiography is written without entertainment to the writer and read with distrust by the reader.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing contributes to the entertainment of the reader more, than the change of times and the vicissitudes of fortune.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Not necessity, not desire --no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything --health, food, a place to live, entertainment --they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most puzzling thing about TV is the steady advance of the sponsor across the line that has always separated news from promotion, entertainment from merchandising. The advertiser has assumed the role of originator, and the performer has gradually been eased into the role of peddler.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When I was producing on my own, I was doing it in order to - in a very patriarchal entertainment industry, let alone planet - very much hell-bent on trying to prove to myself, if nothing else, that I could do it as a woman.More [12/29/2005 12:12:00]
In California, of all places, entertainment is the key to a vibrant economy. If we do not develop young adults capable of entering that world, the financial base of this state is sure to suffer and impact all of us.More [04/27/2006 12:04:00]
Working with Ronnie was always a joy and were without doubt some of the best years of my career. The world of entertainment has lost a huge talent.More [04/27/2006 12:04:00]
I met Selena and I have to tell you, I'm really, really saddened by this incident. The termination of such a beautiful creature. She was a total blessing for the Hispanic women in the entertainment industry.More [05/08/2006 12:05:00]
“Oblivion is something unique, an entertainment experience unlike anything I had seen before. I decided this was a project I really wanted to work on creatively, and I hope fans of the game enjoy the results.”More [06/12/2006 12:06:00]

“Maybe entertainment is not supposed to be reality.”More [10/15/2006 12:10:00]

Genie: It's not my fault Merlock's after me. I don't just want to be Mr. Popularity. All I wanted was a life of my own... like your nephews. My own bike, stack of comic books, a sled, maybe some ski equipment, a CD player, my own home video entertainment system...
Scrooge McDuck: All right! All right!More [08/12/2007 12:08:00]
[after a horrible rehearsal, 88 Keys and the singers complain that it's 2 am]
Big Boy Caprice: It's 2 a.m.? I'm about to turn this *dump* into a new era of entertainment and you're telling me its 2 a.m.?
[smashes 88 Keys' fingers, wedging them into the piano keys]
Big Boy Caprice: [yelling] PLAY THE PIANO!
Breathless Mahoney: That was a silly thing to do. He's the best piano player in town.
Big Boy Caprice: SHUT UP!
[the place goes dead silent and then 88 Keys starts playing again]
Big Boy Caprice: [goes up to Breathless and smacks her in the face] Next time, I take his fingers and I turn them into pretzels. I just might do the same to your face.
[slaps her]
88 Keys: [88 Keys seems to playing smoother]
Big Boy Caprice: See? He's playing better already.More [09/04/2007 12:09:00]
On a scale of the United States, the Hollywood influence on what comes out, that's not the majority views of across the country. What we read in Us Weekly or People magazine, or Entertainment Tonight, it's not what the majority of the country is thinking.More [10/09/2007 12:10:00]
Carrie: Having a good night?
Charles: Yes. It's right up there with my father's funeral for sheer entertainment value.More [11/24/2007 12:11:00]
Michael: Fredo, who are the girls?
Fredo: That's for you to find out.
Michael: Get rid of them, Fredo.
Fredo: Hey, Mike, uh...
Michael: I'm here on business I leave tomorrow now get rid of them. Come on, I'm tired. Get rid of the band, too.
[Fredo chases everyone out of the room]
Michael: What happened to Moe Greene?
Fredo: He had business. He said give him a call. Once the party started.
Michael: Well, give him a call. Hello, Johnny.
Johnny Fontane: Mike, it's nice to see you again.
Michael: We're all proud of you. Sit down, Johnny, I want to talk to you. The Don's proud of you, too.
Johnny Fontane: Well, I owe it all to him.
Michael: He knows how grateful you are. That's why he'd like to ask a favor.
Johnny Fontane: Mike, what can I do?
Michael: The Corleone family is thinking of giving up all of its interest in the olive oil business, settling out here. Now Moe Greene will sell us his share of the hotel and the casino so that it can be completely owned by the family. Tom.
[Hagen hands Michael some papers]
Fredo: Hey, Mike, are you sure about that? I mean, Moe, loves the business. He never said anything to me about sellin'.
Michael: I'll make him an offer he can't refuse. You see, Johnny, we feel that entertainment is going to be a big factor in drawing gamblers into the casinos. We're hoping that you'll sign a contract agreeing to appear 5 times a year. Perhaps convince some of your friends in the movies to do the same. We're counting on you, Johnny.
Johnny Fontane: Sure, Mike, I'll do anything for my Godfather. You know that.
Michael: Good.
Moe Greene: Hey, Mike! Everybody's here. There's Tom. Freddie. Good to see you, Mike.
Michael: How are you, Moe?
Moe Greene: You got everything you need? The chef cooked for you special, the dancers will kick your tongue out and your credit is good. Draw chips for everyone in the room so they can play on the house.More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
Lt. Steven Hauk: Who do we have slated for live entertainment in November?
Dan 'The Man' Levitan: Well, we originally wanted Bob Hope, but it turns out he won't come.
Lt. Steven Hauk: Why not?
Edward Garlick: He doesn't play police actions, just wars. Bob likes a big room, sir.
Lt. Steven Hauk: That is not funny!
Private Abersold: How about if it escalated?
Lt. Steven Hauk: How about if what escalated?
Private Abersold: The Vietnam conflict.
Lt. Steven Hauk: The Vietnam conflict. We are not going to escalate a whole war just so we can book a big name comedian!More [12/30/2007 12:12:00]
J. Algernon Hawthorne: I must say that if I had the grievous misfortune to be a citizen of this benighted country, I should be the most hesitant of offering any criticism whatever of any other.
J. Russell Finch: Wait a minute, are you knocking this country? Are you saying something against America?
J. Algernon Hawthorne: Against it? I should be positively astounded to hear anything that could be said FOR it. Why the whole bloody place is the most unspeakable matriarchy in the whole history of civilization! Look at yourself! The way your wife and her strumpet of a mother push you through the hoop! As far as I can see, American men have been totally emasculated- they're like slaves! They die like flies from coronary thrombosis while their women sit under hairdryers eating chocolates & arranging for every 2nd Tuesday to be some sort of Mother's Day! And this infantile preoccupation with bosoms. In all time in this Godforsaken country, the one thing that has appalled me most of all this this prepostrous preoccupation with bosoms. Don't you realize they have become the dominant theme in American culture: in literature, advertising and all fields of entertainment and everything. I'll wager you anything you like that if American women stopped wearing brassieres, your whole national economy would collapse overnight.More [04/25/2008 12:04:00]
And being as I'm somebody who loves movies like The Machinist, I also love going along to big mass entertainment movies. I get in the mood for all kinds of movies, and so I like to try each of them.More [05/16/2008 12:05:00]
Actually, one of the TSA guys showed me the Entertainment Weekly with the poster from the original in it, which also mentioned they were doing a remake. Caught me totally by surprise.More [05/18/2008 12:05:00]

Bhuvan: Let me remind you all of one thing: this is not a game we are playing for fun and entertainment - this is a fight we must win.More [06/26/2008 12:06:00]
Joe: How do you remember it all like that, word for word?
Thorne: My entertainment options are kind of limited.
Joe: Have you memorized anything else?
Thorne: Shakespeare, books of the Bible...More [06/28/2008 12:06:00]
[chastising a major actress]
Traci Levine: Thank God. She's finally leaving.
Andrew: Can you believe Entertainment Weekly called her "the new sweetheart of American cinema?"
Traci Levine: That cunt? She made Julie take my table because she thought I hadn't bathed recently - like she should talk. Did you see the way she eats?
Andrew: Yeah. Did you check out her legs? Now I know why they call 'em calves.
Christian Markelli: I bet after sex, she smokes a ham.
[Lila appears]
Lila Montagne: Andrew, darling, a glass of that cuvée. And people, I do hope we're not speaking disparagingly about our clientele. Gossip is so ignoble, especially regarding those less fortunate.
Traci Levine: Less fortunate, that bitch?
Andrew: You know something. Come on, tell!
Lila Montagne: Please, no. I would never tell tales such as... well, with the frequency she does it, the poor child must think that binging and purging are aerobic exercises.
Christian Markelli: No way! She hardly looks bulimic!
Lila Montagne: Yes. Well, if I were a different sort, I'd suggest more of the purging and a little less of the binging.More [07/11/2008 12:07:00]
As an actor, I travel around a lot and live in a lot of hotels, and many times I've been in a town where the only entertainment to be had is what you find in the hotel bar or lobby.More [08/13/2008 12:08:00]
They just wanted to show the entertainment world that we're vulnerable.More [08/13/2008 12:08:00]
I'd be curious to find out, but I don't think people in the entertainment industry are proportionally more or less serious politically than anyone in the landscaping industry.More [08/25/2008 12:08:00]
Ladies and gentlemen! We will now present for your entertainment the most amazing, stupendous, super-colossal spectacle! On this tiny, little, insignificant ball, we will construct for you a pyramid! Not of wood, not of stone...

Victor Albee Norman:
Miss Hammer, take a memorandum. To Mr. Kimberly: Dear Kim, For four years I haven't been listening to the radio much. Paragraph. Kim, in that time, it's gotten worse, if possible. More irritating, more commercials per minute, more spelling out of words, as if no one in the audience had gotten past the first grade. Paragraph. I know how tough Evans is, and some of the other sponsors, but I think we make a great mistake in letting them have their own way. We're paid to advise them. Why can't we advise them that people are grateful for what free entertainment they get on the air, grateful enough to buy the product that provides good shows. But, they have some rights, Kim, it's their homes we go into, and they're not grateful to people who get one foot in the door by pretending to offer them music and drama, and then take too much time in corny sales talk. Paragraph. I want to go on record as saying that I think radio has to turn over a new leaf. We've pushed and badgered the listeners, we've sung to them and screamed at them, we've insulted them, cheated them and angered them, turned their homes into a combination grocery store, crap game and midway. Kim, some day, 50 million people are going to just reach out and turn off their radios,

[snaps fingers]

Victor Albee Norman:
snap, just like that - and that's the end of the gravy, for you, and me, and Evans. Sign it love and kisses, Vic.

Miguel de Cervantes:
We are to appear before the Inquisition.

The Governor:

Miguel de Cervantes:
No, not exactly. You see, we were presenting an entertainment.

The Governor:
An entertainment? How does an entertainment get into trouble with the Inquisition?

Cervantes' Manservant:
Perhaps they found an entertainment is not always what it seems.

The Governor:
[to the Manservant] But why are YOU here?

Cervantes' Manservant:
Somebody has to stage-manage the stage.

The Governor:
Ho, ho! These two have empty holes in their heads!

Augusta Prodworthy:
And since I am strongly of the opinion that we are already providing more than enough entertainment for visitors, I wish to propose the motion that the provision of more would be detrimental to the good name of the borough.

Sid Fiddler:

Mayor Frederick Bumble:
Please, Councillor! I should strike that from the minutes, Miss Drew.

Miss Drew:
Ah, I beg your pardon, your worship?

Mayor Frederick Bumble:
Don't take down 'knickers'.

Sid Fiddler:
Chance would be a fine thing, wouldn't it, love?

Mayor Frederick Bumble:
Councillor Fiddler, I really must request you moderate your language while in committee.

Augusta Prodworthy:
I second that.

Sid Fiddler:

Miss Drew:
Should I...?

No, no!

Arthur Frayn:
I am Arthur Frayn, and I am Zardoz. I have lived 300 years, and long to die. But death is no longer possible, I am immortal. I present now my story - full of mystery and intrigue. Rich in irony, and most satirical. It is set deep within a possible future, so none of these events have yet occurred. But they may! Be warned, lest you end as I. In this tale I am a fake god by occupation, and a magician by inclination. Merlin is my hero! I am the puppet master. I manipulate many of the characters and events you will see. But I am invented too for your entertainment and amusement. And you, poor creatures, who conjured you out of the clay? Is God in showbusiness too?

Gene Siskel:
[referring to "North"] Well, I think you've got to hold Rob Reiner's feet to the fire here: he's the guy in charge, he's saying this is entertainment - it's deplorable. There isn't a gag that works. You couldn't write worse jokes if I told you to write worse jokes. The ethnic stereotyping is appalling, it's embarrassing, you feel unclean as you're sitting there; it's junk - first-class junk.

Michael Ovitz:
Peter, I know Dave's circumstances, and so I know why you're here. Dave is a star of such compelling stature that frankly it makes me personally angry he finds himself disabused. We pride ourselves here at CAA in developing a carrer plan for our clients that protects them as much as it enriches them. David has such incredibly high professional standards that his going disturbingly unrewarded, that just doesn't make any sense, it's simply bad business practice. Obviously, we have an interest in establishing a business relationship with you Dave, and you Peter. Frankly, we have worked out a career plan for David, and it includes securing for Dave what he wants, EVERYTHING. Of course that means an 11:30 television show. Dave will be offered an 11:30 show, and he will be offered it by every network. Geometry of the deal will be far larger, the studios will be in, the syndicators, the full range of the entertainment industry. We shall frame a deal that will make you one of the giants. And if you give us the privilege of working with you, CAA will take care of everything your talents deserve, and our spirit desires.

What is it exactly you're concerned about, Murphy?

Dennis Murphy:
I'm concerned that you stood up in front of three hundred people in a black church and told them that they were not a factor and never would be as long as we remain in the pocket of the insurance lobby! I'm concerned that you went to a fundraiser in Beverly Hills and told various leaders of the entertainment industry that they make a lousy product, and since many of them also happen to be Jewish, you decided the PRUDENT thing to do would be to MOCK their Jewish paranoia! I'm concerned that we are in an after-hours club in Compton on the eve of the most important event of the campaign swing, where God knows how much illegal activity is taking place and YOU are SMOKING MARIJUANA! Now, Senator - I work for you. You call the shots. But I will be able to do my job so much better if you will just simply tell me... what is this new strategy? Just tell me a little bit!
