...Perpetual Movie Quotes Post...

THIS feature will also be a 'running deal', listing memorable movie lines, most likely from the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood, which to me is 1930-1945-ish... although I'm sure a lot of 'newer' films will find their way into the proceedings... the lines may be pretty familiar, but we are REALLY looking for those 'hidden gems' that aren't generally part of the lexicon of pop culture... but, hey, if you dig one of those, feel free to post it!
AND, any contributions by YOU will be greatly appreciated as well! Just post a comment to this page...the only rule, as aforementioned in various locations, is to 'minimize' questionable language (i.e., would you feel comfortable saying it front of your preacher, teacher, and/or mama) - and if a line DOES contain one of these, please just use the ol' "*****" technique... thanks in advance for your efforts concerning this matter.

SO...Here We Go!!!
