Ever watch the Steve Martin movie "Roxanne" when Rick Rossovich's character learns the word extemporaneous and keeps using it over and over again?
It's a terrific movie. So many clever lines.
“When you're reaching for a star, there's a long way to fall.”
Sometimes I take a walk at night and I see couples walking, holding hands and I look at them and I think: "Why not me?". Then I catch my shadow on the wall...
“I would rather be with the people of this town than with the finest people in the world.”
“- Dixie: It's a riddle. What can you sit on, sleep on, and brush your teeth with?
- C.D. Bales: I don't know.
- Dixie: A chair, a bed, and a toothbrush.
- C.D. Bales: What's the point?
- Dixie: The point is that sometimes the answer is so obvious, you don't even realize it. It's as plain as the nose on your face.”
I imagine a bunch of them were paraphrased from Cyrano de Bergerac but they're still pretty clever.
