I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

One Liner

In responding to my meme, Scott the Reader added a request of his own:

I'm not going to tag anyone, because I think the scribosphere is pretty much flooded by this meme at this point. However, I will shoot one back, to those sitting back thinking they are off the hook --

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LINE OF DIALOGUE YOU HAVE EVER WRITTEN?

I don't even want context. Just throw the line out, here or in your blog.
Okay, then! Here's mine. Choosing between two (and I haven't searched that hard), but I'll settle on this line from Hell on Wheels. I know you don't want context, but tough. Remember, it is a vampire western set in 1868.

"Them bodies looked like they was part of the Donner Party. And I ain't talkin' 'bout the survivors, neither."

What I meant by that was that it's a great line, and I want to know the context...and read the script!
