Mix Tapes

ROB GORDON (John Cusack): “The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don’t wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules.”
HIGH FIDELITY, 2000

Pasta Sauce

PETE CLEMENZA (Richard Castellano): “Heh, come over here, kid, learn something. You never know, you might have to cook for twenty guys someday. You see, you start out with a little bit of oil. Then you fry some garlic. Then you throw in some tomatoes, tomato paste, you fry it; ya make sure it doesn’t stick. You get it to a boil; you shove in all your sausage and your meatballs. Heh? ... And a little bit o’ wine. An’ a little bit o’ sugar, and that’s my trick.”
THE GODFATHER, 1972

 

Ogling

ROGER SWANSON (Campbell Scott): “First, learn to read the sun, where it sits. You’ll notice…correlation between backlighting and transparency. They wear light-colored clothing, underwear shows right through. Bra straps, panty lines. No need to stretch or squint… Step back, OK? Let her pass. Give it a few seconds. Watch this, and then camouflage the move. Check of the watch is good, or the pager. Or looking for a street sign, like you’re lost.”
ROGER DODGER, 2002
