Tom Cruise Movies, with a Tom Cruise Quote from It

1. A Few Good Men: “I want the truth!”
2. Jerry Maguire: "Show me the money!"
3. Rain Man: " I'm gonna go take a celebration piss."
4. The Outsiders: "Hate to tell you this, buddy, but you have to wear clothes to work. There's a law or something."
5. Mission Impossible: "Kittridge, you've never seen me very upset."
6. Top Gun: “I feel the need, the need for speed.”
7. Edge of Tomorrow: "What I am about to tell you sounds crazy, but you have to listen to me. Your very lives depend on it. You see, this isn't the first time."
8. Risky Business, “ Sometimes you've just gotta say, ‘What the fuck?’”
9. Austin Powers in Goldmember, "Well, Miss Normous... shall we shag now, or shag later?"
10. The Mummy -"Jenny, respectfully, I'm not interested in archeological jargon right now."
11. Collateral: " Don't you talk to me about murder. All it ever took was a downpayment on a Lincoln Town Car. That girl... you can't even call that girl. What the fuck are you still doing driving a cab?"
12. Interview with the Vampire: "Evildoers are easier, and they taste better."
13. Tropical Thunder: "A nutless monkey could do your job."


Favorite pieces of clothing you own.

1. A T-shirt with a well-designed cartoon of me created by my daughter on it. I'm surrounded by books, including "Dull Vol. 1", "Dull Vol. 2" and "Dull Vol. 3".

4. An inexpensive jacket I bought at Target ~20 years ago. It's held up over the years, though I wear it often and run it through the laundry occasionally. It's lightweight, but insulates really well and is great for the relatively mild Texas winters.

Sorry, Annie, but Larry Bird was never known as "The Bird".

I don't doubt it, but I've been a Celtics fan since the 1970s and grew up in the northeast, and New England. I never heard it, and I could not find it readily in a web search.

6. Game 7, 2014: before the Giants won it over the Royals, we Giants fans called the rumbling bumbling stumbling Giants outfielders "The Keystone Cops Play". But, Pablo Sandoval caught the final out, and we won it!



ETA: after searching, I guess "The Keystone Cops Play" isn't a thing on the internet. But it sure is with me and my friends, when with two outs in the ninth, the Royals' Alex Gordon hit the ball to center field, on the ground. CF Gregor Blanco misplayed it and it rolled to the wall. Gordon lumbering around the bases, thank goodness he wasn't all that fast! Then LF Juan Pérez also bobbled the ball before it was thrown in to SS Brandon Crawford. Gordon, thankfully slow, only made it to third.

Sorry for rambling on!
