another post vanished

wtf? another post vanished...

I tlaked about the original Bedazzled with Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. let's see if it shows up later.

and Arthur

advertisement Susan: A real woman could stop you from drinking.
Arthur: It'd have to be a real BIG woman.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: You're a hooker? Jesus, I forgot! I just thought I was doing GREAT with you!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Bitterman! Do you want to double your salary?
Bitterman: Yes sir!
Arthur: Then open that door!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Susan: Arthur, take my hand.
Arthur: But that would only leave you with one!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur Bach: Girls, girls, girls! I love girls!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur Bach: I'm so rich, I wish I had a dime for every dime I had.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Normally, someone would have to go to a bowling alley to meet someone of your stature.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Do you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to take a bath.
Hobson: I'll alert the media.
Arthur: Do you want to run my bath for me?
Hobson: It's what I live for.
[Arthur exits]
Hobson: Perhaps you would like me to wash your dick for you... you little shit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[while Arthur Bach is taking a bath]
Arthur Bach: God, Hobson, isn't life wonderful?
Hobson: Yes it is, Arthur, do your armpits.
Arthur Bach: A hot bath is Wonderful... Girls are WONDERFUL!
Hobson: Yes, imagine how wonderful a girl who bathes would be... Get dressed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur Bach: I race cars, play tennis, and fondle women, BUT! I have weekends off, and I am my own boss.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Good afternoon. If you and your undershirt will take two paces backwards, I could enter this dwelling.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[after Linda Marolla stole a necktie from a store]
Hobson: Arthur, I see no reason for prolonging this conversation, unless you plan on knocking over a fruit-stand later this afternoon.
Hobson: [to Linda Marolla] Good luck in prison.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[pointing at a mounted moose on the wall]
Arthur: Where's the rest of this moose.
Burt Johnson: Arthur, I think it's time we got to know one another.
Arthur: I do too. That's why I had to come over today. Hmhmhmhm. This is a tough room.
[pats the moose]
Arthur: I don't have to tell you that.
[points to the moose again]
Arthur: You must've hated this moose.
Burt Johnson: Why don't you forget the moose for a moment!
[looks at the moose then to Burt]
Arthur: Right.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur Bach: It's so small, they recently had the whole country carpeted.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: I've never taken care of anyone. But if you got sick, I'd take care of you.
Linda: Then I'll get sick.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Waiting at Arthur's father's office]
Arthur Bach: I hate it here!
Hobson: Of course you hate it. People work here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Of a mounted moosehead in Burt's den]
Arthur Bach: You must have hated this moose.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[to the mounted moosehead in Burt's den]
Arthur Bach: This must be awfully embarrassing for you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur Bach: Not all of us who drink are poets. Some of us drink because we're not poets.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Isn't this fun? Isn't fun the best thing to have? Don't you wish you were me? I know I do.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Don't you wish you were me?
Arthur: I know I do.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Arthur suddenly laughs uproariously]
Gloria, Hooker: Why are you laughing now?
Arthur: Sometimes I just think funny things.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Executive: He gets all that money. Pays his family back by... by... by bein' a stinkin' drunk. It's enough ta make ya sick.
Hobson: I really wouldn't know, sir. I'm just a servant.
Executive: Yeah.
Hobson: On the other hand, go screw yourself.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Hobson, do you know what the worst thing is about being me?
Hobson: I should imagine your breath.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Thrilling to meet you, Gloria.
Gloria, Hooker: Hi.
Hobson: You obviously have a wonderful economy with words, Gloria. I look forward to your next syllable with great eagerness!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Oh stay with me Hobson. You know I hate to be alone.
Hobson: Yes, bathing is a very lonely business.
Arthur: Except for fish.
Hobson: Pardon? Did you say "except for fish"?
Arthur: Yes... fish all bath together. Though they do tend to eat one another. I often think... fish must get awful tired of sea food. What are you thoughts Hobson?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: [to mounted moose on wall] This is a tough room. I don't have to tell you that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: It's a very tiny country... Rhode Island could beat the crap out of it in a war.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ralph: I take it this bum will be calling you?
Linda: Dad! He's a millionaire.
Ralph: You have my permission to marry him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[while soliciting a prostitute]
Arthur Bach: What I had in mind was spending the night with a stranger who loves me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Burt Johnson: [smiling broadly] When I was twelve years old, I KILLED a man. He came into our house to steal our food. And I took a knife & I killed him in the kitchen.
Arthur: [inebriated] Well, he had it coming!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: [to Burt Johnson's servant] Are you sure you want to be a nightclub comic?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: [to Susan Johnson] Do you have any objection to naming a child Vladimir, even if its a girl?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: What are you doing later tonight?
Linda: Oh, I have plans for tonight. What should I wear?
Hobson: Steal something casual.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Poor people are not loved, Arthur. They urinate in public and have very few teeth.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: I've taken the liberty of anticipating your condition. I have brought you orange juice, coffee, and aspirins. Or do you need to throw up?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Here, read this magazine. There are many pictures.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: A little tart like that could save you a fortune in prostitutes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: If I begin to die, please take this off my head. This is not the way I wish to be remembered.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Would you remove your helmet, please?
Arthur: Why?
Hobson: Please.
[Arthur hands him his helmet]
Hobson: Thank you. Now your goggles.
Arthur: Why?
Hobson: Please.
[Arthur hands him his goggles]
Hobson: Thank you.
[Slaps him across the face repeatedly]
Hobson: You spoiled little bastard!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Burt Johnson: Hello, Arthur.
Arthur: Hello, Mr. Johnson.
Burt Johnson: I haven't seen much of you lately.
Arthur: Well, the reason you haven't seen much of me is because I, I normally pick Susan up at her apartment in town. And you live here. Want a drink?
Burt Johnson: I never drink. No one in my family ever drinks.
Arthur: That's great! You probably never run out of ice your whole life!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Burt Johnson: I don't drink because drinking affects your decision-making.
Arthur: You may be right. I can't decide.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: You spoiled little bastard! You're a man who has everything, haven't you, but that's not enough. You feel unloved, Arthur, welcome to the world. Everyone is unloved. Now stop feeling sorry for yourself. And incidentally, I love you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Linda: Nice place... I love a living room you can land a plane in.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Have you ever been on a yacht?
Linda: No, is it wonderful?
Arthur: It doesn't suck.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[in a department store, Arthur and Hobson see Linda putting a tie in her bag]
Arthur Bach: Hobson, did you see that?
Hobson: [wearily] Yes.
Hobson: That girl just stole a tie!
Hobson: Yes.
Arthur Bach: Girls don't wear ties! It's the perfect crime! All right, some girls wear ties, it's not the perfect crime but it's a pretty good crime!
Hobson: Yes, if she murdered the tie it would be the perfect crime.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: He's taking the knife out of the cheese! Do you think he wants some cheese?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hobson: Arthur, you're a good son.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[about Hobson after she gives her phone number to Arthur]
Linda: Wouldn't it be funny if *he* called me?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: [a very intoxicated Arthur is addressing the congregation of attendees for his wedding] ummmm... ummmm... Ladies and gentlemen... I'm Sorry... As you probably have surmised by now... there will be no wedding. The bride... has had second thoughts... and has decided not to marry me... Most of you know me... Can you blame her?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur: Do you want anything?
Hobson: I want to be younger.
Arthur: Sorry, it's your job to be older.

Hell Yeah!

Ghost Busters was an excellent film. Another of Ramis' masterpieces is "Bedazzled" with Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley. Hell is worth the watch just to see Liz in those outfits. My favorite (besides the Cheer Leader get up) was the red dress she wears in the Devil's office in the beginning. WOW.....

Coneheads

CC Joe didn't get it but I maintain it was an excellent movie adaptation of the reoccurring SNL skit. Everyone is in the damn thing (Farley, Spade, Aykroyd who also helped write it, Jane Curtain, Phil Hartman, Jason Alexander, Michael McKean, Adam Sandler, Tim Meadows, Kevin Nealon, Tom Arnold and Sinbad, among others) not that that gives it credibility but I thought the script was exceptional and it had the most important quality for a comedy, EVERY SCENE WAS FUNNY. I hate comedies that try to develop a plot while not being funny, they're comedies for cryin' out loud. I really believe that most folks had a preconceived notion that the movie was going to follow Hollywood's tendency to rush to market with a hasty attempt to cash in but like someone else pointed out, most folks didn't even remember Coneheads from SNL when the movie came out. Oh well, can't please 'em all.

Moore and more

I can not remember which documentary they were talking about, Bowling or Farenheit, but Moore once talked about praise he received from some dirctors or actors: the praise was something along the lines of 'it is a good MOVIE' that was the praise he appreciated the most, Moore said.

I will wait for the DVD with extras for Sicko.

anyway, GRTUD reminded me of another fucking amazing film:

GHOSTBUSTERS!!!!

that shit was one of the best! that DVD with the extras, (collectors edition?) I have. nice out takes, and better commentary / interviews.

Harold ramis can do no wrong, teamed up with Ackroyd and Murray -- (Stripes!) he is a comic genious.

recently I finally saw Orange County, in which Ramis has a really good part as the dean of admissions. funny as hell, as was Jack Black.

Sicko

I really want to see this movie. I may actually wait 'till it comes out on DVD due to tight funds presently and my hunch I'll want it for my collection. You did a great job of characterizing the movie in light of Moore's partisan tendencies goffchile, although I've yet to see it in person. I've loved and hated Moore's work over the years but when I saw the series "The Aweful Truth" I realized he was more than a left wing advocate. I also thought "Bowling for Columbine" was excellent, although it came out a little to soon in relation to the actual tragedy, which I felt was a little self serving ($$$$). Making people think is a difficult and thankless job, for the most part, not to mention hurting people's feelings in the process.

Sicko

I saw Sicko last night and it was pretty good--Moore's best film Roger and Me and possibly his best yet. It is not nearly as partisan as Farenheit 9/11 in that it doesn't specifically target Republicans or any particular politician but is mostly focused on insurance companies. The main thrust of the film is to point out the costly (in terms of money and human life) irrationalities of our medical and childcare systems and offer reasonable alternatives that work for other countries. The countries that he uses as examples are Canada, England, and France and the differences are pretty stark in terms of cost, priorities of health care institutions, and patient care/satisfaction.

The most basic thing is that in these countries the patient's method of payment or ability to pay is not an an issue for the health care professional, the health maintenance organization, or the patient, but in the US it is always an issue. Secondly, in other countries, health care organizations and professionals have incentives (in terms of bonuses, etc) to provide the best care possible, in terms of immediate care and preventative care, whereas in the United States the incentives pertain to cost containment and to underwriting the profit margins of insurance and pharmacutical companies. The most telling examples were of doctors who worked for iinsurance companies that are basically paid large fees to deny claims. Moore also disabuses the viewer of the oft stated notion that "socialized medicine" is a bureaucratic mess in comparison to the US system--may I introduce you to an HMO?

The movie has some trademark Moore "stunts"--him taking 9/11 rescue workers to Cuba to receive heatlth care--which I am sure will draw fire from his critics, but for the most part the movie just lets the people tell their own stories with some light narration from Moore.

I recommend.
