What? What are you talking about? It's girls and spaghetti. We love girls and spaghetti.

Nice choice, chester!

Hard not to vote for The Palm Beach Story, but I've got to go Sullivan's.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Sullivan's is a classic but I find myself leaning towards Miracle of Morgan's Creek.

I think I've only seen Hail the Conquering Hero, which was an entertaining, light comedy. I suppose I'll go with that.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Love Sullivan's Travels, and it is sadly the only one I've seen.

But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
