Quotes from movies that made you go "WOW"! I'll start...
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 12:58 PM by JanMichael
This is from Seredipity (2001) with John Cusack.

He and his fried Dean are trying to track down a woman that Cusack's character had met briefly 7 years before. They had a "magic" sort of encounter and signs were popping up that led both of them to seek each other out.

They get an old address and find the leasing company. The leasing agent temp doesn't immediately give them the info, privacy concerns and such, so Dean lets it rip.

======================================================================
Jonathan: Forget about privacy laws. You know what privacy laws do?

Leasing Office Temp: No.

Jonathan: They protect millionaires. You know who those millionaires are?

Leasing Office Temp: Who?

Jonathan: Tell him who they are. Tell him.

Dean: Kids your age. Pimple-faced college drop outs who have made unhealthy sums of money forming internet companies that create no concrete products, provide no viable services, and still manage to generate profits for all of its lazy day-trading son-of-a bitch shareholders. Meanwhile, as a tortured member of the disenfranchised proletariat, you find some altruistic need to protect these digital plantation-owners?

Jonathan: Wow!

Jonathan: Come on.
======================================================================

2. I was really refering to the "digital plantation owners" comment.
Cracked me up.

As to "privacy" laws just look at how the Census Bureau stops calling people with incomes over $250,000 for the household survey. They say it's for their privacy, the person at $25,000 however doesn't matter.

7. "I've seen things.......
you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams ... glitter in the dark near Tanhauser Gate. All those ... moments will be lost ... in time, like tears ... in rain. Time ... to die.

Michael to Kay: "Who's being naive, Kay?"
