A cool tall drink of water is all you ever wanted to be,
And if you had another wish to wish you'd be fun and moving.
But you can't talk to people right, you can't tell a story,
You're tall, long legged and your heart's full of liquor.
And me and everybody are just ice in a glass.

You had fun, but you couldn't get him out of the car.  I guess mama's boys only go so far.
You went in and put a record on to make it sound like someone was home,
And thanked yourself for pouring yourself a drink.

Try to figure out and laugh yourself to the shower,
burn yourself alive and join the monster squad.
They say in this place you can reinvent yourself.

Everyone's caught onto everything you do..

Is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with,
cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish,
I've seen more guts in 11 year old kids.

Have another drink and drive yourself home,
I hope there's ice on all the roads,
and you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
and again when your head goes through the windshield.

I found religion at the record store,
I found heaven on your kitchen floor
No more late night drives to Boston.
No more Cure songs to get lost in.
No more taxis, subway tokens..

You wait too long, you never leave.
It feels like dying but still your heart beats..
she burned like a fire only drowning men could see

"When this is all over I'm going to found an association called 'The Knights of the Idiotic Table,' and it's purpose will be to arrange an annual dinner where we tell stories about Lisbeth Salander. You're all members."

She said, "Could you be the boy that takes me away into fortune and fame"
He said,
"Maybe not the fame, but possibly the flames.. Yeah maybe not the fame, but possibly the flames"
And then he asked her,
"Do you like lighting fires?  I've been looking for a fire-lighter for hire.  Do you like lighting fires?"
Finally the guy with the eyepatch arrives.
He was dripping wet with gin-fizz.
He was half dead and dynamite, with needle-marked arms
like the frontman in some grunge band, a big straw hat and a liquid orange suntan.
He cooled himself off with a japanese hand fan, motioned for silence, and then he began.
He said,
"You know this clown they call the nightclub dwight?
he's got a place called the Nice-Nice that he won rolling dice-dice.
Dwight likes the lights, he likes roaming the foam.
Now Dwight's never home now that Dwight's got a jones.
Dwight was pretty nice when he took out that loan from us,
Now Dwight don't got the courtesy to pick up the phone for us.."
He made a joke, he leaned in close, and then he spoke.
He Said,
"I want nightclub Dwight dead in his grave.  I want the Nice-Nice up in blazes."

95% of everything I do is 100% legal..

Reminds me of Burn Notice.. So upset that the greatest show ever is ending but as long as they finish out strong and tie up loose ends I'll be happy.  By the end, I'm hoping to see Mike and Fi together, Sam, Jessie and Mama Westin alive and well, and the team back working together.  I want Mikey out from under the CIA's thumb and Carlos out of the picture.  On the upside, I'll no longer need cable TV, it'll be a non-stop Burn Notice marathon at my house

.. if we're gonna use a brick, we may as well call prison and make reservations

still love this movie so much

In a fit of self reflection, I've discovered that all my favorite movies have a few things in common.  I like movies where people steal shit and get away with it.  I like movies that involve guns, explosions, and vigilante justice.  And, of corse, I love anything with Angelina Jolie.  I like the badass good guys who are not too far off from being bad guys.  Now what does that tell you about me?
