I’m watching three films this weekend, sandwiched between (a second attempt at) a Firefly marathon.
All three of these star a favorite actress of mine.
The lead character in my favorite of these films is also the name of one of my cats.
It’s a sculpture, not a flesh-and-blood cat.
One of the quotes is a poem, and sounds best recited in a mid-Atlantic brogue.
Another is a song.
All three of these films make me want to have a drink (or ten).
And now, my film playlist by way of quotes from my favorite scenes, in no particular order.

Razors pain you, rivers are damp, acids stain you, drugs cause cramp. Guns aren’t lawful, nooses give, gas smells awful; you might as well live.

Have you ever seen love like this?
Ever witnessed marital bliss?
There it is right in front of you.
Don’t you wish you could have it too?
Sally! Sally and Joe! Going six years strong.
What’s the secret to your success?
Does it happen when you undress?
Get it on in a major way.
Makin’ babies the natural way.
Baby, do it today.
Make one, make one, make one, make one
do it, do it, do it, do it
Sally! and Joe!
going six years strong
Feels too good, it can’t be wrong.
do it, do it, do it
It can’t be wrong.
wear a thong
Light up the bong.
bang a gong
Do whatever it takes.
get it on

No one does that song better than my sister. Who? Thank you, comrade.
