The kids watched the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon and Anna wanted me to draw a picture of Electro for her to color:

eleanor in winter

A sketch of Katherine Hepburn as Eleanor of Aquitaine in The Lion in Winter:


I maintain that The Lion in Winter has the largest concentration of great dialogue in any movie ever made.

Some examples:

Prince John: "Poor John. Who says poor John? Don't everybody sob at once! My God, if I went up in flames there's not a living soul who'd pee on me to put the fire out!"
Prince Richard: "Let's strike a flint and see."


Eleanor: "I even made poor Louis take me on Crusade. How's that for blasphemy. I dressed my maids as Amazons and rode bare-breasted halfway to Damascus. Louis had a seizure and I damn near died of windburn... but the troops were dazzled."

Prince Geoffrey (to John): "If you're a prince, there's hope for every ape in Africa."

Henry II: "I've snapped and plotted all my life. There's no other way to be alive, king, and fifty all at once."

Prince Richard
(to Eleanor): "You're so deceitful you can't ask for water when you're thirsty. We could tangle spiders in the webs you weave."


Henry II
: "I could have conquered Europe - all of it - but I had women in my life."


Prince Richard: "He'll get no satisfaction out of me. He isn't going to see me beg."
Prince Geoffrey
: "My you chivalric fool... as if the way one fell down mattered."

Prince Richard
: "When the fall is all there is, it matters."


Eleanor
: "I adored you. I still do."

Henry II
: "Of all the lies you've told, that is the most terrible."

Eleanor
: "I know. That's why I've saved it up until now."



And on and on...greatness...

ngyaaaaaaaaaaa


From Marvel's Little Shop of Horrors adaptation (art by Gene Colan). "Ngyaaaaaaaaaaa" instantly became an inside joke among our little circle of friends. I dunno why...it's just a very odd death cry, I guess. No exclamation point, either.
