Quote of the Day: Twilight Zone: The Movie

John Valentine: [just saw the weird creature on the wing of the plane] There’s a man on the wing of this plane!

[Everyone looks out the windows on his side. But the creature has disappeared]

John Valentine: There was somebody out there. You gotta believe me!

Old Woman: I saw him. Green and slimy.

Old Man: Leave the poor man alone.

Old Woman: I’m only trying to help. You’ve got to humor them.

John Valentine: It was lightning. At first I thought it was animal. Some kind of bird or something. But it was a man! There were flames coming out of the engine, and a flash of smoke. Maybe it was a technician who was caught on the side of the plane when it took off. How could he survive out there? The air’s so thin, the blast of the wind. It’s so cold.

[begins to think it was only his imagination and feels embarrassed]

John Valentine: It’s impossible, isn’t it? Oh my god, I feel so stupid!

[takes sedatives to sleep. Then laughs nervously]

John Valentine: Can you imagine? A naked man crawling along the wing of an airplane at 35,000 feet?

Happy 72nd birthday to John Lithgow!!!

Remember That Song: 10/19/17

Can you name the artist and song:

We just want to dance here
Someone stole the stage
They call us irresponsible
Write us off the page


Last Song: “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around ” by Stevie Nicks & Tom Petty from the album Bella Donna (1981)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!!

I know you really want to tell me good-bye
I know you really want to be your own girl
Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words

Quote of the Day: Halloween II

Sam Loomis: If that wasn’t Michael Myers burning up in that car, then a lot of other kids are going to be slaughtered tonight.

Gary Hunt: He’s dead. You saw it.

Sam Loomis: I saw a man in a mask.

Gary Hunt: It was him.

Sam Loomis: I want to believe you, but I have to be sure. I can’t stop until I’m certain that he’s dead.

Gary Hunt: You’re talking about him like he’s some kind of animal.

Sam Loomis: He was my patient for fifteen years. He became an obsession with me until I realized that there was nothing within him, neither conscious nor reason that was… even remotely human. An hour ago I stood up and fired six shots into him and then he just got up and walked away. I am talking about the real possibility that he is still out there!

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!!

Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls, peeling out of sight

Quote of the Day: The Shining

Delbert Grady: Your son has a very great talent. I don’t think you are aware how great it is. That he is attempting to use that very talent against your will.

Jack Torrance: He is a very willful boy.

Delbert Grady: Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir.

Jack Torrance: It’s his mother. She, uh, interferes.

Delbert Grady: Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don’t mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn’t care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I “corrected” them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I “corrected” her.

Last Song: “Only In My Dreams” by Debbie Gibson from the album Out of the Blue (1987)

Great job, Andy (@Torahguy)!!!

Now I see I’m up to no good (no, no good)
And I wanna start again
Can’t remember when I felt good (felt good baby)
No I can’t remember when

Last Song: “Better Be Good To Me” by Tina Turner from the album Private Dancer (1984)

Great job, Jim (@JimVilk)!!!

That’s how it’s gotta be now
‘Cause I don’t have no use
For what you loosely call the truth

Quote of the Day: The Thing

MacReady: We’re gonna draw a little bit of everybody’s blood… ’cause we’re gonna find out who’s The Thing. Watchin’ Norris in there gave me the idea that… maybe every part of him was a whole, every little piece was an individual animal with a built-in desire to protect its own life. Ya see, when a man bleeds, it’s just tissue, but blood from one of you Things won’t obey when it’s attacked. It’ll try and survive… crawl away from a hot needle, say.

Last Song: “Adult Education” by Hall & Oates from the album Rock’N Soul Part 1 (1983)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk)!!!

And long halls and the gray walls
Are gonna split apart
Believe it or not
There’s life after high school
