A new survey asked Americans which movie line best described their philosophy of life, and the #1 answer, with 26% of the vote was Forest Gump’s “Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’ll get.” It was followed by “There’s no place like home” from “The Wizard of Oz”, and “Carpe diem” (seize the day) from “Dead Poets Society”.  Others in the top ten included, “Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’, “May the Force be with you,” and “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!”  Researchers said that in such a materialistic society, they were surprised that “Show me the money!” didn’t rank higher, but it only came in 10th.  

- If “The horror, the horror” from Apocalypse Now starring Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, and Martin Sheen had starred Charlie Sheen instead of Martin, the word “horror” would have been spelled differently!

- My favorite was delivered in “Midnight Run” when Robert Di Nero told the incessantly talkative Charlies Grodin, “I’ve got two words for you:  Shut the F—- Up!”
