Are you suggesting madam that there exists a law compelling a gentleman to lay hold of canine bowel movements?
I'm suggesting that you pick the poop up.
STUART: "It is no more crazy than a dog finding a rainbow. Dogs are colorblind, Gretchen. They don't see color. Just like we don't see time. We can feel it, we can feel it passing, but we can't see it. It's just like a blur. It's like we're riding in a supersonic train and the world is just blowing by, but imagine if we could stop that train, eh, Gretchen? Imagine if we could stop that train, get out, look around, and see time for what it really is? A universe, a world, a thing as unimaginable as color to a dog, and as real, as tangible as that chair you're sitting in. Now if we could see it like that, really look at it, then maybe we could see the flaws as well as the form. And that's it; it's that simple. That's all I discovered. I'm just a... a guy who saw a crack in a chair that no one else could see. I'm that dog who saw a rainbow, only none of the other dogs believed me."
GRETCHEN: “I believe you.”
The fun of this movie certainly was not found in the details, but I suppose none of that was really the point. It was the fact that Leopold found himself in a strange New York City (by his standards) and ends up falling for Kate.
I tell you, that thing is a damn hazard!
It's just a toaster!
Why is it called a toaster when it produces no toast, but simply warm bread, and inserting it two times produces charcoal? The ideal toaster would have one and a half insertions to produce the correct toast.
You know something? Nobody gives a rat's ass that you have to push the toast down twice, and you know why? Because everybody pushes their toast down twice!
Not where I come from!
Oh, right. Where you come from, toast is a result of reflection and study!
I don't want it to be Sunday. I want more of this... more 1876.
