Quote of the Day

Sookie: OK, don’t panic.

Lorelai: Good opening line. What’s wrong?

Sookie: We’re out of ice.

Lorelai: How could we be out of ice? We had a ton of ice. It was like a penguin habitat in there.

Sookie: I don’t know how it happened, I just know it happened and somehow we have to deal with it.

Lorelai: I will go and get some then.

(Luke comes in carrying ice.)

Lorelai: Oh! Oh my God! You’re a vision! Sookie, we have ice!

Sookie: Hallelujah.

Lorelai: How did you know?

Luke: Well, a good rule of thumb is you can never have too much ice.

Lorelai: Oh, you’re the best.

Quote of the Day


Harken: You fought with Captain Reynolds in the war?

Zoe: Fought with a lot of people in the war.

Harken: And your husband?

Zoe: Fight with him sometimes, too.

Harken: Is there any particular reason you don’t wish to discuss your marriage?

Zoe: Don’t see that it’s any of your business, is all. We’re very private people.

(Cut to…)

Wash: The legs. Oh yeah, definitely have to say it was her legs. You can put that down. Her legs, and where her legs meet her back. Actually, that whole area. That, and above it. … Have you seen what she wears? Forget about it. Have you ever been with a warrior woman?

Quote of the Day


Xander: Flowers for milady.

Buffy: I think they call those balloons.

Xander: Yeah, stick ’em in water, maybe they’ll grow.

Willow: Not to be outdone…

Buffy: Homework!

Willow: It’s my way of saying, ‘get well soon’.

Buffy: You know, chocolate says that even better.

Willow: I did all your assignments. All you have to do is sign your name.

Buffy: Chocolate means nothing to me.

Cordelia: Nobody told me I was supposed to bring a gift. I was out of the loop on gifts.

Giles: It’s, it’s tradition among, um… people.

Quote of the Day

Benjamin Sisko: Hey, Jake that was a hell of a game! A hell of a game!

Jake Sisko: I gave up ten runs.

Benjamin Sisko: They’re Vulcans. If they were humans you’d have held them to just two or three.

Jake Sisko:When you put it that way.

Benjamin Sisko: Yes. Now, pardon me. I owe you an apology.

Rom: No. Unless you really want to.

Benjamin Sisko: I’m sorry.

Rom: Apology accepted.

Benjamin Sisko: If you have some time one day, maybe you can teach me how to bunt.

Rom: Sure… What’s a bunt?

Nog: That’s my dad.

Solok: I fail to see why you are celebrating. The Ferengi’s bunt was an accident. And you still lost the game.

Benjamin Sisko: You are absolutely right. And I couldn’t be happier. Quark, a round of drinks for the house on my tab.

Quark: I’m way ahead of you, Captain.

Solok: You are attempting to manufacture a triumph where none exists.

Kasidy Yates: I’d say he succeeded.

Julian Bashir: To manufactured triumphs.

Benjamin Sisko: Manufactured triumph. Hear, hear!

Niners: Hear, hear!

Solok: This is a typical human reaction, based on emotionalism and illogic.

Benjamin Sisko: Did I hear irritation in that voice?

Solok: Certainly not.

Julian Bashir: That sounded positively defensive to me.

Miles O’Brien: With a hint of anger.

Quark: And just a touch of jealousy.

Kasidy Yates: And a lot of bitterness.

Ezri Dax: Are you always this emotional?

Solok:I refuse to engage in this human game of taunting.

Ezri Dax: Human? Did I forget to wear my spots today?

Quark: All that intelligence and he still doesn’t know what a human looks like.

Kira Nerys: Captain. Here’s something else for your desk.

(She throws him a baseball signed by the team.)

Benjamin Sisko: Well, will you look at that. Would you like to sign it?

(Solok leaves.)

Benjamin Sisko: No.

What I want to see from tomorrow’s Oscar nominations

The Oscar nominations will be announced tomorrow morning, and while I try every year to predict the winners I won’t even attempt to try to guess the nominees.  However, I do have some things I would like to see when the nominations are announced tomorrow.  I’ve divided these into two categories: actual, genuine “Possibilities” and “Not a Chance”.  I may be hopeful, but I try to keep things at least moderately realistic.  I’ve left out some of the more obvious ones, like Gravity for Best Picture, Director, Actress and all of the technical categories, simply because I think that they’re foregone conclusions and I’m not really sweating them.  Come back later tomorrow after the nominations have been announced (and I’ve gotten home and can actually write about them) for some quick thoughts on who made the cut and who was left out.  In the meantime, read on for the names and films I would like to hear Chris Hemsworth read outtomorrow.

Quote of the Day

“Okay, write that down,” Hermione said to Ron, pushing his essay and a sheet covered in her own writing back to Ron, “and then copy out this conclusion that I’ve written for you.”

“Hermione, you are honestly the most wonderful person I’ve ever met,” said Ron weakly, “and if I’m ever rude to you again –”

“– I’ll know you’ve gone back to normal,” said Hermione.
