Quick Write 080311 “From the movie script”

Jack Nicolson has suddenly become one of my favorite actors since I saw “As Good As it Gets”. He plays an eccentric romantic novelist who doesn’t really know how to love women. He falls in love with a single mother who works as a waitress at the restaurant where he regularly has breakfast. I love the movie largely because of Jack Nicolson’s acting, I suppose. He is literally an eccentric, weird, insensitive to women’ needs and wants, but highly intelligent and astute book author. Yesterday, I found that another Jack Nicolson movie is available on GyaO, free video and movie site, and saw “Something’s Gotta Give” starring Jack Nicolson and Dian Keaton which depicts a love story of two mature people. After seeing the movie, I wanted to check its movie script to locate my favorite parts. Then I gooled it, and … GOT it! I’ve got the whole thing. Wow, is this the era in which anything is available on the Internet for free? Anyway, I’ve got the whole movie script with a few clicks of my wireless red mouse. Here are my favorite parts.

JULIAN (A young, decent, handsome doctor played by Keanu Leaves)
I’ve waited a reasonable amount of hours before calling you, even though you’ve been on my mind since I woke up at 5:15. I’m wondering when we could have dinner again? I have to work the next few nights and if we wait 'til next week, I know you’ll chicken out so how's Friday? I know it's like a date night but I think that’s good.

This is the voicemail message to Erica (Diane Keaton). I like the phrase, “a reasonable amount of hours before ~ing”. I could reuse this like, “I’ve waited a reasonable amount of hours before deciding to fail you even though you’ve had a lot of time to submit the remedial assignment since I gave it to you two weeks ago.” Wow, watch out, students.

HARRY (A rich, single guy played by Jack Nicolson.)
You're like a thoroughbred in a world of mutts. No, you know what you are, you're like a great portrait over a fireplace. Words have been invented to describe women like you.
ERICA (An accomplished playwright played by Diane Keaton)
Such as?
HARRY
Flinty and... Impervious.
ERICA
So you think I’m inhuman.
HARRY
No. I think you're formidable.
ERICA
But cold and distant. Like I'm frozen in some painting...
HARRY
Not at all. I think your strength defines you. But it's thrilling when your defenses are down arid you're not isolated. That, I believe, is your winning combo. A killer combo actually.

I agree that “Words have been invented to describe women like you.” is impressive, but not much of an eye-opening remark. What I cannot help adoring is this. “… your winning combo, A killer combo”. Killer combo. Sounds really, really cool and alluring to me. I’ll be seeking for the opportunity to use this phrase effectively. But…will the time ever come?
