I guess what I like most about NY is that it feels like home to me. I was born here in 1977 and have lived here, on and off, my whole life. I feel very connected to NY. I love how much it has to offer, though it still feels small and cozy. There are so many amazing things to see here: incredible art, just about every film, amazing music, all kinds of interesting people. I like to ride my bike on the Hudson River . I like that I can walk my dog around two blocks and he meets about 20 other dogs to play with. I like that I can get a turkey sandwich at 4 in the morning if I want to. A beautiful night out in NYC can be any night because anything can happen. It is spontaneous and surprises you all the time.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]

Dr. van Straaten:
[removes his eyeglasses] Ah. No doubt you thought it would be very amusing to watch my cherished disbeliefs being shattered.



Eliot Foley:
[sarcastically] Mm, very clever of us, I must say. I wonder if we have any more surprises up our sleeves.


[the camera focuses on Dr. van Straaten's hands as he fiddles with his eyeglasses]



Walter Craig:
That's it - your glasses!



Dr. van Straaten:
What about my glasses?



Walter Craig:
It's later on. We're having drinks. You break those glasses of yours, and then, quite suddenly, the room goes dark. And then, Foley, you say something, something about the death of a man I've never heard of. And that's where my dream becomes a nightmare. A nightmare of horror.



Joan Cortland:
Horror? What sort of horror?



Walter Craig:
I feel my will power draining away. I feel I'm in the grip of a force that's driving me towards something unspeakably evil.



Dr. van Straaten:
It shows that you have some heavy weight on your conscience. Now, in my opinion...



Walter Craig:
I'm no longer interested in your opinion, Doctor. You shook me at first, with your ingenious theories. I thought perhaps the whole thing was a delusion. But Mrs. Grainger's arrival has altered all that. I have been here before, in my dreams. For some reason, I was given foreknowledge of the future. Why? I don't know. I want to know! I must know!

Yes, gentlemen, I have here just about the handiest, dandiest little bookfull of gastronomical surprises that ever tempted the jaded palate of a fastidious f-f-food fancier. Oh, don't bother fixing anything for me. I just finished my lunch. Urp! Take this recipe, for instance. Bassinet of baby borscht with sour cream. Mmm-mmm!



Sam's Brother:
Yeah, yeah, but what does it say about roast duck?



Daffy Duck:
Roast duck? Yes, sir. Roast duck, Roast duck... Here we are. Roast duck a la Oscar. First you take a duck. After lopping off its head and feet, you place it in a... Hmm. "Lopping off its head and feet." Gulp. Soups! A very delicious soup can be made from diced duck.


[Turns pale]



Daffy Duck:
Di-di-di... What you want is a dish of delicious ice-cream. I'd like to see them sneak a duck into this one. Sundae Delight Supreme, sprinkled profusely with crushed duck. Gulp!

Shark:
Danny... We know you're in here. You come on out now, and you got a chance. You can't get away, Maxie's got the whole town covered!


[Shark flips out his switch-blade]



Shark:
This is it, buddy! This is the big get-even day! We've got a lot to settle up, you and me. Danny I knew it was your old man that night. I knew it, and I slugged him anyway, so you come on out and get me! You come out and get me, or we're coming in!


[Shark and his cohort continue to try to trap and corner Danny. Danny climbs up and stands on the bottom sill of a hidden window on the wall in a dark part of the alley as he hides from Shark and his cohort]



Shark:
I'm gonna let you in on a little secret, kid. We've been laughing at you. Me and Maxie, ever since it happened we've been splitting a gut. You told me once we'd tangle again. Well, now's your chance. Come on, Danny Boy!


[Shark's cohort inadvertently walks below Danny, then Danny jumps down from the window sill onto, and knocks the cohort out]



Shark:
You got him?



Danny Fisher:
[Using a muffled voice, pretending to be Shark's cohort answering,] YEAH!



Shark:
[thinking his cohort knocked Danny out, but it's the other way around] Hold him. I wanna put my mark on him. Where is he?

Titorelli:
You see, in definite acquittal, all the documents are annulled. But with ostensible acquittal, your whole dossier continues to circulate. Up to the higher courts, down to the lower ones, up again, down. These oscillations and peregrinations, you just can't figure 'em.



Joseph K.:
No use in trying either, I suppose.



Titorelli:
Not a hope. Why, I've known cases of an acquitted man coming home from the court and finding the cops waiting there to arrest him all over again. But then, of course, theoretically it's always possible to get another ostensible acquittal.



Joseph K.:
The second acquittal wouldn't be final either.



Titorelli:
It's automatically followed by the third arrest. The third acquittal, by the fourth arrest. The fourth...



Joseph K.:
I think what surprises me most is how ignorant I am about everything concerning this court of yours. For an accused man, that's a mistake. He should never let himself be caught napping, never for a minute let his eye stray to the left, when for all he knows, a judge or somebody like that can be lurking somewhere to the right.

Major John Smith:
No mistake, Lieutenant. This the headquarters of the Wiermarcht Alpine Korps.



Lt. Morris Schaffer:
Oh, swell. Do you have any other surprises I should know about?



Major John Smith:
I thought you knew, Lieutenant. Why do you think we were chosen for his mission as if not to make social contact?



Lt. Morris Schaffer:
You mean we're gonna go down there? Mingle with the German Army?



Major John Smith:
Of course. Why do you think we're not dressed as German sailors or Red Cross nurses?



Lt. Morris Schaffer:
We'll be recognized as strangers.



Major John Smith:
Training troops come and go all the time. What are six new faces among 600 new faces?



Lt. Morris Schaffer:
Look, Major, this is primarily a British operation. I'm an American. I don't even know why the hell I'm here.



Major John Smith:
Lieutenant, you're here because you're an American.

Jack:
We have a house in Jersey. We have two kids, Annie and Josh. Annie's not much of a violin player, but she tries real hard. She's a little precocious, but that's only because she says what's on her mind. And when she smiles... And Josh, he has your eyes. He doesn't say much, but we know he's smart. He's always got his eyes open, he's always watching us. Sometimes you can look at him and you just know he's learning something new. It's like witnessing a miracle. The house is a mess but it's ours. After 122 more payments, it's going to be ours. And you, you're a non-profit lawyer. That's right, you're completely non-profit, but that doesn't seem to bother you. And we're in love. After 13 years of marriage we're still unbelievably in love. You won't even let me touch you until I've said it. I sing to you. Not all the time, but definitely on special occasions. We've dealt with our share of surprises and made a lot of sacrifices but we've stayed together. You see, you're a better person than I am. And it made me a better person to be around you. I don't know, maybe it was just all a dream. Maybe I went to bed one lonely night in December and I imagined it all. But I swear, nothing has ever felt more real. And if you get on that plane right now, it'll disappear forever. I know we could both go on with our lives and we'd both be fine, but I've seen what we could be like together. And I choose us.
