Line(s) of the Day #ITonya

i_tonya.jpg

(skating judge) Bob Rawlinson: I’ll deny I ever said it honey, but you’re just not the image we want to portray. You’re representing our country for fuck’s sake. We need to see a wholesome American family. You just refuse to play along.
Tonya Harding: I don’t have a wholesome American family.

Dan Triandiflou and Margot Robbie in I, Tonya (2017), which tells of the difficult background of American Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding and the circumstances regarding the attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan.

Line(s) of the Day #12AngryMen

12 Angry Men

Juror #8: Let me ask you this: Do you really think the boy’d shout out a thing like that so the whole neighbourhood could hear him? I don’t think so – he’s much too bright for that.
Juror #10: Bright? He’s a common ignorant slob. He don’t even speak good English.
Juror #11: He *doesn’t* speak good English.

Henry Fonda, Ed Begley and George Voskovec in the superlative courtroom drama 12 Angry Men (1957). A truly astonishing film that has continued to inspire and provoke debate about the justice system and those chosen to help carry a verdict. I’ve included the film in my blog numerous times. As well as the recent Scorching Hot Weather Film Quiz, it’s also been in my Favourite Films and B/W Adaptions from Plays quizzes, as well as being on a guest film post.

Line(s) of the Day#AvengersEndgame (possible spoilers)

avengers end game

If I tell you what happens, it won’t happen.

Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) in the epic superhero film Avengers: Endgame (2019). The phenomenal film, which brings to an end the Infinity War saga, is already the second highest-grossing film of all time.
