--Orson Welles, demonstrating a deep interest in critics in Citizen Kane. Posted by Picasa

"You're right, I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars next year. You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I'll have to close this place in ... 60 years."

“What’s a tough guy?...A guy with an edge...A gun or a knife, a nightstick, or a razor, something’ the other guy ain’t got. Yeah, a little extra reach on a punch, a set of brass knuckles, a stripe on the sleeve, a badge that says cop on it, a rock in your hand, or a bankroll in your pocket. That’s an edge, brother. Without an edge, there ain’t no tough guy.�

Yea, I know...different movie. But I couldn't resist.
