That's got nothing to do with the drug. Which means ... our problems are huge and indomitable.
Ooh. I could eat that word. Or a crisp. Do you have a crisp?
You haven't seen my drawer of inappropriate starches?? Come on!
God. I'm having such a terrible day.
I'm pretty sure ... I'm kind of positive, actually, that something happened. The exact same thing happened, except without the chair.
You've stated that remote wipes aren't possible.
I've said they're untested! I've said they're a very bad, bad idea. I've said I can't do them.
We gave two people a perfect weekend together. We’re great humanitarians.
Who would spend their lives in jail if anyone ever found this place.
We’re also misunderstood ... which great humanitarians often are.

Fact That Totally Worked the First Time I Watched This:
The movie's opening was a deliberate attempt by filmmakers Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon to confuse the audience and make them think they walked in to see the wrong movie.
The scene where Curt asks Jules about the textbooks, "What are you doing with these? Who gave you these? Who taught you about these?" and she answers, "I learned it from you! Okay? I learned them from watching you!" is a take-off on a 1987 Anti-Drug PSA where the father confronts his son about drug paraphernalia and gets a similar answer.
The thermal coffee mug/bong was a fully functional mug and bong as portrayed in the film, the prototype of which cost $5000 to make.
When Jules kisses the wolf head on the wall, the wolf's tongue is covered in powdered sugar to give it a dusty look and to make the scene tolerable for Anna Hutchison.
The Latin that Dana reads from the diary is: "Dolor supervivo caro. Dolor sublimus caro. Dolor ignio animus." It means: Pain outlives the flesh. Pain raises the flesh. Pain ignites the spirit.
Among the possible choices on the facility's betting board are the following: Werewolf, Alien Beast, Mutants, Wraiths, Zombies, Reptilius, Clowns, Witches, Sexy Witches, Demons, Hell Lord, Angry Molesting Tree, Giant Snake, Deadites, Mummy, The Bride, The Scarecrow Folk, Snowman, Dragonbat, Vampires, Dismemberment Goblins, Sugarplum Fairy, Merman, The Reanimated, Unicorn, Huron, Sasquatch/Wendigo/Yeti, Dolls, Zombie Redneck Torture Family, The Doctors, Jack O' Lantern, Giant, Twins, and Kevin.

Irgendwie sind wir bei The Hollow Crown in der Mitte von Henry VI. steckengeblieben, und haben keine rechte Lust, weiter zu machen (so herzig Tom Sturridge ist. Der Autor war noch recht unerfahren und packte viel zu viel zusammenhangsloses Zeug in ein viel zu langes Werk.) Das lassen wir jetzt mal ruhen, denn irgendwie lähmte das unseren üblichen Shakespeare-Enthusiasmus. Als Gegenmaßnahme hier die locker-flockige vergnügliche Salonkomödie Much Ado About Nothing, die ihre beherzte Nutzlosigkeit schon im Titel preisgibt. Der sonst vor allem für monumentale Superheldenspektakel bekannte Joss Whedon hat (vielleicht deshalb) eine feines Gespür dafür, daß das eigentlich auch ohne barock-branagheske Überzuckerung schön funktioniert, und gönnt uns schlicht, elegant, modern und schwarzweiß. Hey nonny, nonny!
The emotionally exhausting film “Mass” is an impressive screenwriting and directorial debut from Fran Kranz. It’s exceptionally well-written, skillfully acted, and thoughtfully explores the idea of grief, guilt, and forgiveness. This film will break you.
Two couples, Richard (Reed Birney) and Linda (Ann Dowd), and Jay (Jason Isaacs) and Gail (Martha Plimpton), meet face-to-face after a tragic…
