Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

All About Eve (1950)
Birdie: There's a message from the bartender.
Does Miss Channing know she ordered domestic gin by mistake?
Margo Channing: The only thing I ordered by mistake
is the guests. They're domestic too, and they don't care
what they drink as long as it burns!

Oh Margo, you're so quotable.

The whole script is eminently quotable. So much love!

I actually went through about ten different versions of this psot with ten different bits of dialogue before deciding to just post this one. The entire script from start to finish is brilliant. I rewatched the movie over the weekend and every time it's over I just want to watch it all again.

I know! I was going to say I admire your restraint in posting just ONE snippet.

Also, Miss Caswell is my favourite role for Marilyn Monroe ever. The cleverest dumb blonde in the annals of bimbology.

"Why do they always look like unhappy rabbits?" Ha!
