Completely Random Movie Quotes!-#1

"If my boy says he can eat fifty eggs, he can eat fifty eggs!"

Today begins a new series on the Exultet blog. Completely Random Movie Quotes! reflects the fact that I watched much too much TV and movies growing up and I have a knack for remembering most of the lines ad nauseum. So I like to throw them out at'cha and see what sticks. If you can name the movie it came from, I'll think you are cool. But, sorry, prizes are only sent out on days ending in the letter Q.

What are your thoughts on Obama being invited to speak at Notre Dame?

Was the egg quote from some Paul Newman movie? I seem to remember him saying something along the lines of, "It seemed like the thing to do at the time."

It is a Paul Newman movie, and you're actually mixing up the quotes. I'll wait to see if my other reader can get it before I answer.

I think the decision of ND to not only invite him to give the commencement address but also to award him an honorary degree is scandalous on the part of a university that wishes in any way to retain its Catholic identity.

Thank you. If you have a chance ( I know you are busy ) read "Why Obama is Losing Faith," in today's Washington Post. You can probably find it online. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

I am having trouble with the word "honor" that keeps getting attached to Obama's on this issue. I do not believe it my duty to honor any President. I will honor the office of President and will respect the person. I think it sends a very disturbing message.

See the post at Creative Minority Report. My comments there are in the context of Patrick's entry and the comments that preceded mine.

And the movie was Cool Hand Luke.

50 eggs was a nice round number.
Cutting the heads off the parking meters, which led Paul Newman's character to prison in the first place, seemed like a good idea at the time.
