Random Factoid #522

1 01 2011

Over the holiday break, I’ve had the time to watch a lot of movies that I’d probably put aside for quite some time in the rush of the normal year.  One of those was “Nothing But the Truth,” a 2008 loose adaptation of the Valerie Plame story that never got the real theatrical release it deserved thanks to its financier, Yari Film Group, going under.  It’s no “Fair Game,” but it’s not bad.

There was a great line in the movie delivered by Vera Farmiga that really struck me.  It wasn’t anything orignal, sure, but it was still powerful.  “How dare you,” she delivers with an icy precision.

It’s a great line to provide a perfect dramatic climax to a heated conversation.  I realized then that I’ve always wanted to say the line, but because it is so over-the-top with anger, I haven’t had the chance.  Granted I don’t want to get into a situation where I have to unleash that kind of anger, but I’m still waiting for the chance to whip out “how dare you” in a conversation.

There are also plenty of funny one-liners from movies that I want to use too if the time is right, so don’t get the idea that I’m just an angry person.  But are there any movie lines that YOU are eager to use?
