2) “Laura Linney is an age-appropriate character delivery device.”
I forgot about that. Classic.  ;D
That one I don't know, but by itself, that is a great quote.
I'm not exactly certain, but I think that might have come up in the Breach (#149) review.

It was used in the review for "The Squid and The Whale", which for some reason, is still my favorite review in the history of the show. So fantastic.

In no particular order, some moments that haven't been mentioned:

- The Massacre Theatre for Blade, that was translated into Italian through Babelfish, then back into English through Babelfish, in order to make it more of a challenge
- Adam threatening to kick Sam off the show following The Battle of Double Indemnity
- The Werner Herzog interview
- Matty's reaction to the first Adam's Articulate Analysis
- Matty's introduction to the Quantum of Solace review
"I hope someday to be rich enough to smoke giant cigars while cackling maniacally."
- Nathan Rabin (echoing my thoughts exactly)

Some of my favorites have already been mentioned, but I will add:

When Adam and Sam did their top 5 tearjerkers, or "Truly Moving Moments" and things "got a little dusty" while they were reading their top 5's

Sam's Jack Nicholson impression in the Five Easy Pieces massacre theatre

Crap.  Triple post.  Sorry.


My favorite moment is the when the /Filmcast took an excerpt from Filmspotting in which Adam and Matty were criticizing Ben Lyon's criticism of Synecdoche, New York.  Life imitating art at it's finest.

That's a classic moment!

My other favorite moment.  Adam telling M. Night Shyamalan "We're done!" after seeing The Happening
"I want to be bored"-Maggie Gyllenhaal
