I guess the movies I enjoy are mei aetatis. Logical. Anyway, I hope you have fun matching these quotes to the movies they come from. Each movie is one I have watched many times, and will watch again. I love movies that have the completeness of a sonnet. Gestalt. The Apartment is probably the best example of what I mean.
01 Generosity, that was my first mistake!
02 I could have been somebody, I could have been a contender.
03 If that did it for me, I’d be the luckiest guy alive.
04 It’s a small price to pay for beauty.
05 My father made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
06 That’s how it crumbles, cookiewise.
07 There must be better songs to sing than this.
08 There’s a lot of dead bodies through there: it’s not a pretty sight
09 These are not my underpants!
10 We read to know that we are not alone.
11 Well, tickle my tits till Friday!
12 Will some kind soul say kaddish for me?
