The Saturday Seven: Best Movie Quotes

After a long stressful and exhausting week dealing with the pet food recall at work, I decided to keep this post fairly simple. I am somewhat of a classic movie buff, so I couldn't resist a dose of Hollywood. So without further delay, I present this week's installment of:
The Saturday Seven: Best Movie Quotes
1. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE, 1962: BLANCHE HUDSON (Joan Crawford): "You wouldn't be able to do these awful things to me if I wasn't in this chair."- Jane (Bette Davis): "But ya AAH Blanche, ya AAH in that chair!"

2. GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, 1953: LORELEI LEE (Marilyn Monroe): Don't you know that a man being rich is like a girl being pretty? You wouldn't marry a girl just because she's pretty, but my goodness, doesn't it help?

3. THE GODFATHER: PART II, 1974: MICHAEL CORLEONE (Al Pacino): "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."

4. SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, 1991: DR. HANNIBAL LECTER (Anthony Hopkins): "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."

5. SUNSET BOULEVARD, 1950: NORMA DESMOND (Gloria Swanson): "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."

6. ALL ABOUT EVE, 1950: MARGO CHANNING (Bette Davis): "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."

7. AUNTIE MAME, 1958: MAME DENNIS (Rosalind Russell): "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

And this week a Bonus Quote, at NO EXTRA CHARGE!!!
GRAND HOTEL, 1932: GRUSINSKAYA (Greta Garbo): "I want to be alone."

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Rick. I'm always looking for good quotes for my blog and other writing, so thanks for posting these. I recently saw Sunset Boulevard for the first time, and that is one sad ending.

First, cool list. You touched on some of my favorite classic movies:)

Second, you poor thing having to deal with the food recall. I have heard that Walmart employees have been swamped as well:(

I am a dog trainer, and I sympathize completely. What a disaster, huh?

Awesome seven. Baby Jane and All About Eve, those are two of my favorite classic movies (as I go for Horror or the weird).

I feel for your pet food recall horrors. I have been hearing Wal Mart employees are suffering as well.

I am a dog trainer, and I fully sympathize with the predicament. What a distaster, huh?

I remember seeing Baby Jane when I was a kid. Creeped me out for weeks.
