Cruel to be kind...gremlinfc asks if it is so?


Getting to wear groovy tanktops was a plus in this fillum which gave me one of my favourite calm put downs ever...not really cruel but HONEST. What was the fillum? This grand scene included a flying plate of asparagus... Another great quote from a TV episode for which I was overlooked (had an inflamed pea at the time so looked unusual) is:
"I have seen more intelligent creatures than you lying on their backs at the bottom of ponds.
I have seen better organised creatures than you running round farmyards with their heads cut off." Now that IS acerbic...
Finally , my fave rant and cruel jibe , which i thoroughly enjoyed doing (pictorial clue)
"I’m gonna rip the eyes out of your head and piss in your dead skull! You fucked with the wrong________(carries on)
I can deal with the bullets, and the bombs, and the blood. I don’t want money, and I don’t want medals. What I do want is for you to stand there in that faggoty white uniform and with your Harvard mouth extend me some fucking courtesy"
Easy points there , methinks.

Could that quote be a rant from our Jack?

gremlinfc said...

It could be our Jack...unless you mean Jack Douglas...or Jack Hargreaves...or Jack Ittin (remember them ?)

no idea Gremlin, but I love those quotes and am planning to subtly slide them into my everyday conversation this week...

gremlinfc said...

Go for it Japant - you will be even cooler than usual!

Can't believe(!!!) noone can get :
1. Film of picture
2. Quote number 1

FP said...

Oh c'mon - it's the CODE RED fillum, shurely...?

gremlinfc said...

Yes indeed FP - it is A FEW GOOD MEN!
More points for you!

FP said...

I like the quote about eating breakfast a hundred yards from troups of men trained to kill him. THE TRUTH??? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!! CODE RED?? TOO DAMN RIGHT I ORDERED A CODE RED!!!!!

"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom....You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall...I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way."
LOVE IT!!!
Well done FP you are truly knowledgeable...any idea about the picture? There's a quote on the "Cruel Songs" RR-blog.

Oh, well since no one else has nipped in I might try and open a gremlin points account:

'SAmerican Beauty, innit?

gremlinfc said...

Points to Snadfrod!
It was the tank top wasn't it?
Do you like hSpacey's mid-dinner plater-throwing followed by calm jibe?

Lester Burnam is my idol.

gremlinfc said...

What a script!Here Lester is negotiating his redundancy :
LESTER
"Can you prove you didn't offer to save my job if I'd let you blow me?"
Brad leans back in his chair, studying Lester.
BRAD
"Man. You are one twisted fuck."
LESTER
(standing)
"Nope. I'm just an ordinary guy with nothing to lose. "
Classic and I'm with anonymous - he's one of my heroes too!

Thanks Gremlin - fillums are part of my job as they are for several of us I'll wager, But I'm also a total and utter Jack fan.
