Line(s) of the Day #Always


It’s been raining since you left me 
Now I’m drowning in the flood. 
You see I’ve always been a fighter 
But without you I give up.

Taken from the song ‘Always’ by the rock band Bon Jovi, from the album Cross Road (1994).

Line(s) of the Day #HowIMetYourMother

How I Met Your Mother

Ellen Pierce: There’s 9 million people in New York. 4.5 million women. Of course, you want to meet someone roughly your own age – let’s say plus, minus 5 years. So if you take into account the most recent census data that leaves us with 482,000 women. But wait! 48% of those are already in relationships and then you have to eliminate half for intelligence, sense of humor and compatibility. And then you have to take out the ex girlfriends and the relatives. And, oh, you can’t forget those lesbians. And then that leaves us with 8 women.
Ted:  That can’t be right! Eight? Really? Eight?
Ellen Pierce: There are 8 fish in that big blue ocean, Ted. And if you feel confident that you can reel one into your boat without me, there’s the door.
Ted: Do you take credit cards?

Line(s) of the Day


Sam Malone: I could get out of prison after 12 years, serve on an all male ship for another four, and be dropped on a desert island for another three, eating nothing but raw oysters day after day, and if one day Diane Chambers walked out of the surf naked, all I’d want from her is the hockey scores.
Diane Chambers: And you wouldn’t even get that!

Ted Danson and Shelley Long in ‘Cheers’ (1982 – 1993)
