    Top Gun? I thought we were supposed to quote The Godfather.

    “The Godfather” is the I Ching. “The Godfather” is the sum of all wisdom. “The Godfather” is the answer to any question. What should I pack for my summer vacation? “Leave the gun, take the cannoli.” What day of the week is it? “Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday.”

    My go-to is Citizen Kane. All the biggest problems I see in my world seem to just cry out for lines from my favorite dissection of a narcissist. I’ll let you fill in what I’m answering.

    If I don’t look after the interests of the underprivileged, maybe somebody else will, maybe somebody without any money or property…and that would be too bad!

    A toast, Jedediah, to love on my terms. Those are the only terms anybody ever knows – his own.

    The news goes on for 24 hours a day.

    Dear Wheeler: you provide the prose poems. I’ll provide the war.

    You’re right, I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars next year. You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I’ll have to close this place in… 60 years.

    Old age. It’s the only disease, Mr. Thompson, that you don’t look forward to being cured of.

    He never gave anything away, he just left you a tip, hmm?

    I think it would be fun to run a newspaper!


    Throw that junk in.

    Mind You…the use above of the Top Gun line is spot ON!

    My go-to has always been Ghostbusters. Or maybe Raiders.

    Damn. I wish I had been a real fly on the wall during that movie watching session.

    Which reminds me, prior to this election season, my actual go-to movie was The Blues Brothers…Citizen Kane was actually my third choice behind TBB and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?.

    How quickly I forgot.

    Oh how I just wish for the right moment to scream “But you are Blanche! You are!” For what we have now, it is not enough.

    Great articles, and scary.

    Maybe Trump’s not alone in his lack of moral awareness. There’s an old FF thread, about Tom Hiddleston playing Loki at Comic Con, where you expressed concern about the audience eagerly lapping up his speech. MaryAnn responded that we just love FICTIONAL villains, and we surely wouldn’t cheer on such a demagogue in REAL life. Ah, that was such a comforting thought, back in 2013.
