I don't think it would be very good public relations for a big airline to prosecute a little old lady just because she wanted to visit her daughter!

Ma'am, we don't have any record of your daughter ever having been on board.
What are you talking about?
The departure gate say they never checked a Julia Pratt onto this plane.

I must now, I suppose, enter the personality of a 4-year old female child possessed of a strong conviction that all forbidden doors are to be opened.

Carol Anne - listen to me. Do *not* go into the light. Stop where you are. Turn away from it. Don't even look at it.

That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

All day long, I listen to people give me excuses why they can't work... 'My back hurts,' 'my legs ache,' 'I'm only four!' The sooner he learns life isn't handed to him on a silver platter, the better!

Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame.

I may not know a winner when I see one, but I sure as hell can spot a loser.

Otto: No they didn't!!
Archie: Oh yes they did!
Otto: Oh no they... SHUT UP! Goodbye Archie.

Not only are you a cheat, you're a gutless cheat as well.

If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
I'm convinced that I'd wind up burning too

Well, it's a job like any other. Good work with lots of variety. Monday, we burn Miller; Tuesday, Tolstoy; Wednesday, Walt Whitman; Friday, Faulkner; and Saturday and Sunday, Schopenhauer and Satre. "We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes." that's our official motto.

They were with him when he took the book with the Auryn symbol on the cover, in which he's reading his own story, right now.

All right. I'll go in there for Dorothy. Wicked Witch or no Wicked Witch, guards or no guards, I'll tear them apart. I may not come out alive, but I'm going in there. There's only one thing I want you fellas to do.

Off the top of my head, I'd say you're looking at a Boeski, a Jim Brown, a Miss Daisy, two Jethros and a Leon Spinks, not to mention the biggest Ella Fitzgerald ever.

You know, Rick, I have many a friend in Casablanca, but somehow, just because you despise me, you are the only one I trust.
