as good as it gets

One of my favourite movies of all time, As Good As It Gets , just gets better and better each time I watch it. Jack Nicholson is incredible. Another line I picked up last night was:
"People who talk in metaphors ought to shampoo my crotch."

I've got a double date set up for Wednesday with The Friend. I'm rather excited. :)

I think the best line of the whole movie is this - it just doesn't get any better than this:

"Even if you hear a thud in the middle of the night, and three days later what could only be the smell of a decaying human body, and the stench gets so bad you think you gonna faint so you have to hold a hanky at your nose, don't come knocking. Or, if your friend gets elected as the first queer president of the United States and he's having you all down to Camp David for the weekend and you want to celebrate...don't come knocking. Not on THIS door."

Forgive me, I've seen it like 11 times. :)

Love that! I have a neighbour who drags his knuckles into my place too frequently to tell me what a stud he is and how "chicks dig" him so much that he can never get enough sleep. I think that the quote may work, bronzed and hanging on my door.

Or again, an apt "People who talk in metaphors oughtta shampoo my crotch" should work as well. :)

Knuckle Twit wouldn't know a metaphor if it hit him in the nuts. I believe the throngs of "chicks" he had at school deprived him of English lessons.

OK, fair enough..(lol), how about this pearler:

"Where'd you learn to talk like that? Some Panama City sailor wanna
hump hump bar, or is this getaway day for a last shot of his whisky?
Go sell crazy someplace else, we're all stocked up here."

He sounds like a character this neighbour of yours.

Janie - Jacko is brilliant in all his movies, but this one has to top it. God and I love the dog...'Verdell.' :)

"Shampoo my crotch"

Lol. Will keep that in mind.

It's Wednesday! Best of luck. Use protection. All that unnecessary stuff.
