Great Movie Lines Regarding Writers

I'm a huge movie buff. I'm a writer. So I get really excited when I find something that blurs the edges. Seen a movie, not necessarily great, but with a really great line in regards to writers/writing/etc? Here's mine, from The Stepford Wives....
Husband to wife: "Did you finish the laundry?"
Wife reply (played by Bette Midler): "I finished a chapter."

LOL Sounds like dialogue from around my house! LOL

So, any of you have any lines to share?

No, no, no, it should be:

"Did you finish vacuuming the upstairs great room?"

"No, but I finished critting eleven manuscripts."

LOL.....my husband's more impressed with the finishing the chapter than critting! LOL And I think he got burned out on my judging....entries were going to bed with us every night!

Okay, Robin, I'm posting. STop pouting. Just remember--anyone else who reads this--I DO NOT read blogs...and I ABSOLUTELY do not post (this is just a pigment of your emancipation!!!).

For me...the line should have read:
DH: You ready for your tests after studying all day?
Me: Nope, but you should read this great scene I just wrote!

And my favorite line from a movie comes from the guy I DETEST the most in the entertainment industry-Tom Cruise- in the movie MI:2,
Ethan Hunt: (angry)Would it make you feel better if I didn't want you to do this? (using her for the agency)
Nyah Hall: Yeah, much!
EH: (shouting)Then feel better!

Still my favorite line...it was so great. Others have tried to emulate it, but there was so much emotion behind it...sigh.

No writing comments, but yesterday Kelly e-mailed me about her ice-cream lunch and said she was "all sugared up with nowhere to go." That went in the journal.

Ron, that's a good one! My daughter gave me one the other day.....she was describing a teacher (sheesh, hope none of them visit my blog! LOL) and she was describing a woman's eyes and she said "you know Mom, they were like weighted down with wrinkles"! I ran for my notebook! :)
