Probably my favorite romance movie of all time...

Joan Wilder: [voiceover narration] It was Grogan: the filthiest, dirtiest, dumbest excuse for a man west of the Missouri River.

Grogan: So, you can die two ways, angel: quick like the tongue of a snake, or slower than the molasses in January.

Joan Wilder: [voiceover narration] But it was October.

Grogan: I'll kill you, goddammit, if it's the Fourth of July! Where is it? Uhh. Get over there!

Joan Wilder: [voiceover narration] I told him to get out, now that he had what he came for.

Grogan: Not quite, angel.

[spits]

Grogan: Take 'em off. Do it! Come on!

[Angelina kills Grogan by throwing a concealed knife]

Joan Wilder: [voiceover] That was the end of Grogan... the man who killed my father, raped and murdered my sister, burned my ranch, shot my dog, and stole my Bible!

I have seen it so many times I can play the movie in my mind.

"El Corazone...?"

M: You don't like me, Bond. You don't like my methods. You think I'm an accountant--a bean counter, more interested in my numbers than your instincts.

Bond: The thought had occurred to me.

M: Good. Because I think you're a sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the Cold War, whose boyish charms, though wasted on me, obviously appealed to that young woman I sent out to evaluate you.

Bond: All right, you've made your poi--

M: Not quite, 007. If you think I don't have the balls to send a man off to die, your instincts are dead wrong. I've no compunction about sending you to your death. But I won't do it on a whim.

I want you to find Goldeneye. Find whoever took it, what they plan to do with it, and stop it. And if you should come across Ourumov, alive or dead, I don't want you running off on some kind of vendetta. Avenging Alec Trevelyan will not bring him back.

She acts across multiple media platforms, and she's in one of the greatest franchises for each.

Mass Effect and The Expanse are as good as Arcane for video games and live action TV, and her characters in both are arguably better (especially Chrisjen in The Expanse- and she certainly gets a lot more screen time in it)

I agree with this. She isn’t as well known throughout showbiz though but people who know her will recognise her voice anywhere. I didn’t have to look her up when I heard her in Arcane and when I finally played ME2 it didn’t take a second guess to know she was the Quarian admiral. I know her from Destiny 2, she voices the Exo Lakshmi-2. I dont think she’s in the game anymore though but her voice alone was reason enough to choose future war cult each and everytime

Not a direct quote from the book. Tolkien was much more wordy. "No!' cried Gandalf, springing to his feet. "With that power I should have power too great and terrible. And over me the Ring would gain a power still greater and more deadly." His eyes flashed and his face was lit as by a fire within. "Do not tempt me! For I do not wish to become like the Dark Lord himself. Yet the way of the Ring to my heart is by pity, pity for weakness and the desire of strength to do good. Do not tempt me! I dare not take it, not even to keep it safe, unused. The wish to wield it would be too great, for my strength. I shall have such need of it. Great perils lie before me."

It began with the forging of the Great Rings.

Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of men, who, above all else, desire power.

Dumb story, but whatever. Friends and I were sitting around drinking and Murder She Wrote came up in conversation. For the life of us we couldn’t think of the main actors name. Someone was about to look it up, and I stopped them because it was on the tip of my tongue and wanted to figure it out. While I wracked my brain the conversation changed but it still bothered me. I refused to look it up, but for weeks i tried to remember. Then while in line at the grocery store it just came to me. And I yelled ANGELA LANSBURY!!. Every stopped and looked at me for a second. And that was it. Thanks for reading.

Have you ever noticed that when this happens to you, knowing who you're talking about but not remembering their name, and you ask people, then suddenly they know exactly who you mean, but also don't remember the name?

It happens too often.

The sound the paper made against the folder had the same tone as a wave scraping against sand. And when Harold thought about it, he listened to enough waves every day to constitute what he imagined to be a deep and endless ocean...
