Line(s) of the Day #BohemianRhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody film

John Reid: So, tell me. What makes Queen any different from all of the other wannabe rockstars I meet?
Freddie Mercury: Tell you what it is, Mr. Reid. Now we’re four misfits who don’t belong together, we’re playing for the other misfits. They’re the outcasts, right at the back of the room. We’re pretty sure they don’t belong either. We belong to them.

Aiden Gillen and Rami Malek in Bohemian Rhapsody (2018), the film biopic that tells of Freddie Mercury and his connection with the band Queen.

Line(s) of the Day #MadMen

Bertram Cooper

Bertram Cooper: Mr. Campbell, who cares? 
Pete Campbell: What?
Bertram Cooper: Who cares? 
Pete Campbell: Mr. Cooper, he’s a fraud and a liar. A criminal even.
Bertram Cooper: Even if this were true who cares? This country was built and run by men with worse stories than whatever you’re imagining here…. The Japanese have a saying. “A man is whatever room he is in,” and right now, Donald Draper is in this room. I assure you. There’s more profit in forgetting this. I’d put your energy into bringing in accounts.
Pete leaves the room
Bertram Cooper (to Don Draper) : Fire him if you want. But I’d keep an eye on him. One never knows how loyalty is born.

Robert Morse and Vincent Kartheiser in the superlative Mad Men (2007 – 2015), which is set in the 1960s and tells of a group of advertising executives working on Madison Avenue. The scene is one of the many fine examples of the betrayal, ambition and wisdom that was a feature of the 15-time Emmy winner,

Bill Murier: Do you want to shoot 35 or HD?
Tommy Wiseau: We’ll shoot both on this film
Peter Anway: Digital and film? Like you’d need twice the crew, twice the equipment. I mean…they’re lit differently. It’s just not done.
Tommy Wiseau: I have a vision

Hannibal Buress, James Franco and Jason Mantzoukas in the hilarious biography The Disaster Artist (2019). The film tells of the making of The Room (2003), widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made, but which has since gained a huge cult following.

Captain Raymond Holt: I don’t believe in loopholes.
Jake Perolta: What? Loopholes are the best. Remember that time when Pancake Palace had that all-you-can-eat deal, but they didn’t set a time limit? I ate pancakes for a week for $3.99. All I had to do was sleep there and never shower.
Norm Scully: What? Thanks for the invite, friend!

Andre Braugher, Andy Samberg and Joel McKinnon Miller in the precinct-set sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013 -). You can find another example of the show’s humour here.

Line(s) of the Day #HeyJude

hey jude

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Taken from the much-loved single Hey Jude by The Beatles in 1968, which unusually wasn’t on any studio album. It was their biggest hit in the US, spending nine weeks at number one, and topped the charts worldwide. It’s long been one of my favourite Beatles songs, along with Tomorrow Never Knows, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, In My Life and The End.

Line(s) of the Day #AllIsFullOfLove

bjork all is full of love

Twist your head around
It’s all around you
All is full of love

Taken from the song All is Full of Love by Icelandic artist Björk, from her third studio album Homogenic (1997). As well as an incredibly beautiful song, it also features one of the greatest music videos ever made, which I talked about here. You’re welcome to watch it here or share your favourite music video.

Line(s) of the Day #AllMyFriends

all my friend single

And if it’s crowded, all the better
Because we know we’re gonna be up late
But if you’re worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay

Taken from the song All My Friends by New York band LCD Soundsystem from their second studio album Sounds of Silver (2007). I really do love this song and featured it back in my post of Awesome Songs of Over 7 Minutes.
