burbanked said: I just rewatched TRUE GRIT recently as well, so yours was a delightful read this morning. I was also taken and amazed by the language and its poetry and the wonderful bit near the end when grown-up Mattie chastises the roadshow guy for not standing out of respect for her. And "There is no clock on my business!" is something I might start saying to my kids when they bother me in the can.
Quotations from this film that I would tickled to add to my lexicon:
- I do not entertain hypotheticals. The world itself is vexing enough.
- Not only does he continue to talk, but he spills the banks of English.
- You are not LaBoeuf.
- Keep your seat, trash.
- Who worked you over with the ugly stick?
- That is no part of it.
- That weighs but little with me.
- I’m not paying for talk. I can get all the talk I need and more at the Monarch Boarding House.
- Ever stalwart.
- Fill your hand, you son of a bitch!
- You’re being hoo-rah’d.
- I extend my hand.
- And of course, THERE IS NO CLOCK ON MY BUSINESS!
