Quote of the Day: Major League


Heywood: [Hayes has just reached on an infield single] You really knocked the crap out of that one.
Willie Mays Hayes: Oh, I plan to get at least a double out of this.
[shows Heywood his black gloves]
Willie Mays Hayes: I bought a hundred of these. One for every base I’m gonna steal. Excuse me while I take my first step toward the Hall of Fame.
Heywood: My ass.
Harry Doyle: [Hayes takes his lead off first base] We don’t know where Hayes played last year, but I’m sure he did a hell of a job.
Heywood: Real hard to steal second with your shoe untied.
Harry Doyle: [Hayes looks down, then gets thrown out by the pitcher] Throw to first… Hayes is picked off! Personally, I think we got hosed on that call.

Happy 55th birthday to Wesley Snipes!!!

Quote of the Day: Golden Girls

In honor of Estelle Getty, who was born on this day in 1923 (July 25, 1923 – July 22, 2008), here are some of her quotes as Sophia on Golden Girls.


Dorothy: Well Blanche is certainly taking her sister’s novel better than I would. I would kill my sister Gloria if she ever wrote about my sex life.

Sophia: You would kill your sister over a pamphlet?


Rose: Belief can be powerful. I had a sty once, and every night I would close my eyes and think about it getting smaller and smaller until it went away!

[Sophia leans on the fridge with her eyes closed]

Dorothy:
Ma, what’s wrong?

Sophia: Nothing. I’m just trying to make Rose go away.


Blanche: I have writer’s block. It’s the worst feeling in the world.

Sophia: Try ten days without a bowel movement sometime.


Sophia: If I met a man who was over seventy but still looked half-way decent, I’d be on my back faster than you could say, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”

I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley.
