library

Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The great British Library --an immense collection of volumes of all ages and languages, many of which are now forgotten, and most of which are seldom read: one of these sequestered pools of obsolete literature to which modern authors repair, and draw buckets full of classic lore, or pure English, undefiled wherewith to swell their own scanty rills of thought.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

[in a library in 1955]
Marty McFly: Maybe it was a mistake, Doc. Maybe that grave wasn't yours. There could've been another Emmett Brown back in 1885.
Young Doc: No.
Marty McFly: Didn't you have any relatives here back then?
Young Doc: The Browns didn't come to Hill Valley until 1908, and then they were the Von Brauns. My father changed our name during the First World War.More [02/28/2007 12:02:00]

Stifler: You're a disgrace to men everywhere. I mean, look at the Stifmeister. I got laid 23 times this year, and I'm not counting the hummer I got in the library stacks, baby.

Stifler: Here's a new idea for you. I'll get you a spoon so you can eat my ass.More [05/03/2007 12:05:00]

[the movie now segues through the library from the end of "The Wind In the Willows" to the start of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"]



Narrator:
Yeah, J. Thaddeus, quite a lad. Speaking of fabulous characters, England has produced a bumper crop of them. But don't forget, over here in the colonies, we've managed to come up with a few of our own. How about Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, Johnny Appleseed, Black Bart, Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone and, of course, the one and only Ichabod Crane. Old Ichy, if you recall, was the country schoolmaster dreamed up by Washington Irving. Oh, he had a way with the yarn, good Mr. Irving.

Grover:
Hello, sir, and welcome to Grover's Taxi.



Fat Blue:
Oh no, it's you!



Grover:
Yes it is I, your furry blue taxi driver. What can I do for you, sir?



Fat Blue:
I want to go to the library.



Grover:
Oh a very wise choice. The library is a wonderful place with books to read and you can listen to records like "The Air is Alive with the Sound of Music."



Fat Blue:
I know that. Let's go.



Grover:
You know you can take home books from the library too, if you bring them back of course.



Fat Blue:
I know. That's why I'm going there.



Grover:
Of course you could also go to the zoo.



Fat Blue:
I don't want to go to the zoo!



Grover:
Why? There are lions and tigers there. And the lions go Rrrrroar! And do not forget the monkeys, they are so cute, they go "Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh!" And you can buy a balloon there.



Fat Blue:
I don't wanna hear "Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh!" I don't want a balloon, I want to go to the library!

Grover:
Gladly, sir. If you do not mind waiting.



Fat Blue:
Waiting? Waiting for what?



Grover:
'Til I get my car fixed. It is broken.



Fat Blue:
I can't wait 'til your car is fixed. I'm in a hurry!



Grover:
Oh alright, sir, if you are going to be difficult.


[calls out]



Grover:
Hey, Herry! Forget the gargage. We need to go to the library!



Fat Blue:
But I'm in a hurry. Hey...?



Grover:
Well in that case I shall call you a taxi.

[about Updyke] He's persona non grata down the library.



Tony Vincenzo:
He's what?



Carl Kolchak:
Yeah, yeah. You see, he, he takes books out. He's got half the books in the library out and they're all over due. As a matter of fact, they've got a warrant out for his arrest.



Tony Vincenzo:
Well, that's not like Ron.



Carl Kolchak:
Oh, I know. I know. I was terribly disturbed about it when I heard it. I don't know, it must be some kind of er, deep-seated illness, a compulsion of sorts, a Biblio... philiac.

[When Elsa leaves the library, Babe hesitates, and then runs after her. He finds her as she is climbing the stairs to her apartment and makes small talk, trying to prolong the conversation. When she keeps walking away, he bursts into an honest confession]



Babe:
Look, I'm sorry I stole your book.



Elsa Opel:
What?



Babe:
I took your book and put it underneath mine. I, I didn't know how to talk to you, I was embarrassed, so I took your book.



Elsa Opel:
Aren't you embarrassed now?



Babe:
Yeah. I'm, I'm humiliated.



Elsa Opel:
So, why do you pursue people who sit at your library table?



Babe:
I don't. It's just that... you're pretty.



Elsa Opel:
Ohh!


[She smiles and turns to walk away from him for about the seventh time]



Babe:
Well, I can't talk about how smart you are; I don't even know you. Anyway, I'm done lying with you.



Elsa Opel:
Are you always so incompetent with women?



Babe:
Oh, yes. Today's way above average for me.



Elsa Opel:
Congratulations.


[She is still smiling as she unlocks her door to leave him]



Elsa Opel:
Good night.



Babe:
That's too bad. I could make you so happy. I'm smart as a whip; you won't meet another thief like me in the library again. Come on; why don't you say you'll see me, huh?



Elsa Opel:
All right. I'll see you again. But it won't come to anything.



Babe:
You can't tell.



Elsa Opel:
[wistfully] Yes, I can.

Romer Treece:
Look it up in the Hamilton Library.



David Sanders:
Yeah, we did, we looked it up in the library and we talked to the librarian, and she said for us to come out here and talk to you 'cause you'd help us.



Romer Treece:
Yes, well she's a stupid woman! But she's kind you know, quite kind. She still growing a moustache?
