Shall we play?

I think an early start tonight, darlings. As always, your answers in the comments.

1) Name your favourite comedic thriller.

2) Name two movie quotes that, for whatever reason, have always managed to stay with you.

3) And just to change things up, name your favourite chocolate.

1) Charade with the absolutely perfect pairing of Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant in a film often described as "the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made". Aren’t they wonderful?

2) "You’re gonna need a bigger boat."

"They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave."

3) Mmmmmmm ... Godiva dark chocolate with raspberry.

Your turn.

1. Grosse Point Blank.

2. Worth dying for. BLAM! Worth killing for. BLAM! Worth going to Hell for. BLAM! Amen.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. I've seen assault ships on fire off the Belt of Orion. I've seen the C-beams glitter off the Tannhauser Gate. All these moment lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die.

3. Don't much care for chocolate.

Ooh, Serenity and Blade Runner. People with taste =)

1. Sneakers

2. I once killed a man with a sponge! ... Well, perhaps killed is too strong a word.

Sir, the truth is, I talk to God all the time, and no offense, but he never mentioned you.

3. Chocolate covered ju-jubes. They're so bad, but sooo good.

1. No contest, it's Murder by Death.

2. "Never get out of the fuckin' boat!"

"A big Totoro was here with me!"

3. Haven't been into chocolate a lot lately, but almost anything Belgian.

1. Lord of War (it's not strictly a comedy, but there were some funny moments.. or I'm sick).

2. Duke: The lights are growing dim Otto. I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.
Otto: That's bullshit. You're a white suburban punk just like me.
Duke: Yeah, but it still hurts.

3. 70% minimum. Dark. Sweet or bitter sweet.

1) Would Young Frankenstein count?

2) "It isn't faith that makes good science, Mr. Klaatu, it's curiosity."

"What is your nationality? -- I'm a drunkard."

3) Hershey's Milk Chocolate. I know, I know, it's pretty pedestrian and Hershey's has been tempted to mess with the recipe (I hope they don't because I'll abandon them if they do) but it's the one I like most. I like dark as well, but Hershey's is comfort candy.

The Lady Vanishes, Hitchcock. The plot makes next to no sense whatsover, but Hitchcock is for the first time playing with several of his trademark characters and situations (the cool, acerbic, independent heroine, the mysterious disappearance, the secret message, strangers trapped together slowly revealing that they aren't who they seem to be), Michael Redgrave is great, and we meet for the first time Charters and Caldicott, two endearingly and quintessentially British twits who are, to all appearances, completely gay. They were so popular that their characters were resurrected in several other films, including the wonderful Dead of Night.

2) "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana."

"I think I like the Austrian way better."

3) Too many to count, but the dark, bitter sliver of chocolate served two weeks ago after supper at La Table de Pierre Delahaye was up there. And it was only wafer thin.

1. I Went Down

2. Gimme a call whenever you wanna cut off my head. I can always crawl around without it.

The world is full of complainers. But the fact is, nothing comes with a guarantee. I don't care if you're the Pope of Rome, President of the United States, or even Man of the Year--something can always go wrong. And go ahead, complain, tell your problems to your neighbor, ask for help--watch him fly. Now in Russia, they got it mapped out so that everyone pulls for everyone else-- that's the theory, anyway. But what I know about is Texas...And down here... you're on your own.

3. Anybody remember Neilsen's Rosebuds?
