Paul Barringer (Patrick Bedford) in Up the Down Staircase (1967): . "They say a writer should stick to what he knows. What nonsense. What did Dickens know about the French Revolution? What did Shakespeare know about Moors in Venice? If he'd stuck to what he knew, we'd have no "Othello." We'd have no "Alice in Wonderland." We'd have no "Treasure Island." You brats think that I and Miss Barrett stand up there day after day, talking about books, and the writing of books, just for the hell of it? You think it's got nothing to do with YOU?" .

My 2 favorite loss and grief scenes: . Forrest Gump Voice Over: . "You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father’s bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin’ was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t. Little Forrest, he’s doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching him how to play ping-pong. He’s really good...” . And the hospital / cliff sequence at the end of Harold And Maude, enriched with Cat Stevens' Trouble. .

Boy George on the cover of Culture Club's single Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - He was the first famous person in my perception who didn't look like all other men and women.
