  6. Not even close. "Well, yes, ma'am, I do... I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up." "Where to, Miss?" "To the stars." "I believe you are blushing, Mr. Big Artiste. I can't imagine Monsieur Monet blushing." "He does landscapes." "Do you love him?" "Pardon me?" "Do you love him?" "Well, you're being very rude. You shouldn't be asking me this." "Well, it's a simple question. Do you love the guy or not?" "This is not a suitable conversation." "Why can't you just answer the question?" "This is absurd. I don't know you and you don't know me and we are not having this conversation at all. You are rude and uncouth, and presumptuous, and I am leaving now." "I'm the king of the world!" George

  9. Roy, We may not always understand the way you phrase things, but your beautiful heart is easy to understand. Good to "see" you again! George
  10. From Wikipedia: The basic theme of the song is the nativity of Christ and the Immaculate Conception. The refrain which gives the villancico its title goes: Ríu, ríu, chíu, la guarda ribera, Dios guardó el lobo de nuestra cordera.[8] "[With a cry of] Ríu, ríu, chíu, the kingfisher, God kept the wolf from our Lamb [Mary, spared of original sin at birth]." The Immaculate Conception is mentioned in the lyrics: El lobo rabioso la quiso morder Mas Dios Poderoso la supo defender Quísola hacer que no pudiese pecar Ni aun original esta virgen no tuviera. "The raging wolf sought to bite her, but God Almighty knew to defend her; He chose to make her so that she could not sin; no original sin was found in that virgin." The song also mentions themes of the Incarnation and Christmas: Éste que es nacido es el Gran Monarca Cristo Patriarca de carne vestido Hamos redimido con se hacer chiquito Aunque era infinito finito se hiciera. "This one that is born is the Great King, Christ the Patriarch clothed in flesh. He redeemed us when He made himself small, though He was Infinite He would make himself finite." Yo vi mil Garzones que andavan cantando Por aqui volando haciendo mil sones Diciendo a gascones Gloria sea en el Cielo Y paz en el suelo pues Jesús nasciera. "I saw a thousand boys (angels) go singing, here making a thousand voices while flying, telling the shepherds of glory in the heavens, and peace to the world since Jesus has been born"[9] So, I think it's "Christmassy." And I think it's a great a capella performance. George
  11. This is one of the Pirates of the Carribean movies. I'll guess the first. George
  12. I can fly like a bird in the sky Hey, and I can buy anything that money can't buy. Oh, I can turn a river into a raging fire I can live forever, if I so desire. I can turn back the hands of time, you better believe I can I can make the seasons change, just by waving my hand Oh, I I can change anything from old to new The things I want to do the most, I'm unable to do. George
  13. King Henry II Michael James Jack, 14th Earl of Gurney George
  14. Bueller? Bueller? Tom Hanks A League of Their Own Geena Davis George
  15. Sounds like it could be an Errol Flynn film, but I suspect it's much more recent. George
  16. The last exchange sounds like M*A*S*H or Major Dad, but those were far too early for the Avengers reference. Maybe clues about the show rather than more quotes? George
  17. The reports of our death are greatly exaggerated. On the other hand, feel free to use the DONATE button at the top of the page to make sure that we're around for years to come! George
