Nobody puts baby in a corner.

Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) in the much loved romantic drama Dirty Dancing (1987). Made for a low budget and with modest expectations, the film was a phenomenal financial success, had a hugely popular soundtrack, featured an iconic dance lift and led to numerous spin offs on stage and TV.

Line(s) of the Day #Gladiator

Gladiator

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

Maximus (Russell Crowe) in Gladiator (2000)

Line(s) of the Day #Amadeus

Amadeus

(Narrating) But they showed no corrections of any kind. Not one. He had simply written down music already finished in his head. Page after page of it as if he were just taking dictation. And music, finished as no music is ever finished. Displace one note and there would be diminishment. Displace one phrase and the structure would fall.

Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) in Amadeus (1984)

Line(s) of the Day #ComfortablyNumb

Comfortably Numb

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying

Taken from the song ‘Comfortably Numb’ from the album The Wall by Pink Floyd (1979)

Line(s) of the Day #Royals

Royals

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

Taken from the song ‘Royals’ from the album Pure Heroine by Lorde

Line(s) of the Day #TheFaultInOurStars

The Fault in our Stars

There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that.

Taken from the novel ‘The Fault in our Stars’ by John Green.

Line(s) of the Day #Frasier

Frasier and Niles

Niles: Oh, I don’t like this one bit.
Frasier: Why? What are they doing now?
Niles: No, nothing. I just realised if dad’s eating here this can’t be a very good restaurant.

David Hyde Pierce and Kelsey Grammer in the sitcom Frasier (1993 – 2004)
