And they love me for the same reason they used to hate me, because I’m the guy who knows everything.

Line(s) of the Day #TheShawshankRedemption

Shawshank Redemption

(narrating) I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a grey place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.

Red (Morgan Freeman) in The Shawshank Redemption (1994), adapted from a novella by Stephen King.

Ed Wood

Edward D. Wood Jr: Why if I had half a chance, I could make an entire movie using this stock footage. The story opens on these mysterious explosions. Nobody knows whats causing them, but it’s upsetting the buffalo. So, the military are called in to solve the mystery.
Editor: You forgot the octopus.
Edward D. Wood Jr: No, no, I’m saving that for my big underwater climax.

Johnny Depp and Norman Alden in Ed Wood (1994)
