“Style is what remains when fashion is gone.” German fashion designer Wolfgang Joop
When I was in Walmart yesterday, I couldn’t help but think about this quote from Colonel Potter in M*A*S*H, because I think there are some definite parallels between what he says about the 4077th, and how I feel about my weekly shopping trip…the cashiers, the managers, certainly the customers don’t want to be there!
“None of us wants to be here. I don’t want to be here. Radar doesn’t want to be here. The doctors, the nurses. Certainly the wounded don’t want to be here. But we’ve got to do our best. Understand, son?” Harry Morgan as Colonel Potter in M*A*S*H
“When my time on Earth is gone
And my activities here are passed
I want they bury me upside down
And my critics can kiss my ass.”
Bob Knight, March 12, 1994
“We don’t negotiate with villains. We kick ass and protect the people we love.” Lana Parrilla as Regina Mills in Once Upon a Time
“It’s not eavesdropping, it’s controlled overhearing.” Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina Spellman in Sabrina the Teenage Witch
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Yves Saint Laurent
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?” Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
“You don’t do the right thing for a reward. You do it because it’s right.” Robert Carlyle as Mr. Gold in Once Upon a Time
This monologue from Once Upon a Time is one of my favorites. I’m not going to lie, when he gets to “a man named Walt,” I always tear up a bit!
“There have been many authors throughout time. It’s a job, not a person, and the one trapped in here was just the last tasked with the great responsibility: To record, to witness, the greatest stories of all time and record them for posterity. The job has gone back eons: From the man who watched shadows dance across cave walls and developed an entire philosophy, to playwrights who tell tales of poetry, to a man named Walt. Many have had this sacred job. Great women and men who took on the responsibility with the gravity that it deserved, until this last one. He started to manipulate rather than record. He did something, I don’t know exactly what, but something that pushed them over the edge.” Eion Bailey as August W. Booth in Once Upon a Time
Hey, me too!
“Long as he has a week to rest up, he’s great one day in a row.” Loretta Swit as Margaret Houlihan on M*A*S*H
