And the nominees are…

Finally, the Oscars are here!  And yes, I must admit that instead of listening to today’s homily, I drifted to think about my favorite movies and the lines in them that “spoke” to me. Here’s my top 10:

10. Mommie Dearest – “No wire hangers.”

9. A Few Good Men – “He eats breakfast three hundred yards away from four thousand Cubans who are trained to kill him and no one’s going to tell him how to run his unit, least of all the Harvard mouth in his faggoty white uniform.”

8. Bridget Jones’s Diary – “The only thing worse than smug married couple; lots of smug married couples.”

7. When Harry Met Sally – “All I’m saying is that somewhere out there is the man you are supposed to marry. And if you don’t get him first, somebody else will, and you’ll have to spend the rest of your life knowing that somebody else is married to your husband.”

6. St. Elmo’s Fire – “You break my heart.  Then again you break everyone’s heart.”

5. A Beautiful Mind – “Classes will dull your mind, destroy the potential for authentic creativity.”

4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s – ”  You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say, the mind reels.”

3. Gone With the Wind – “No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how. ”

2. Dr. Zhivago – “Tonya! Can you play the balalaika?  Can she play? She’s an artist! Who taught you? Nobody taught her! Ah…then it’s a gift.”

1. The Sound of Music – “Where the Lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.”
