Writes Col. John “Hannibal” Smith:

There was once a very lovely, very frightened girl. She lived alone except for a nameless cat.

Writes Ludwig Wittgenstein:

What we call “understanding a sentence” has, in many cases, a much greater similarity to understanding a musical theme than we might be inclined to think.

Pointless, useless, waste.

It is not too late to do something useful with your life Charles.

It's fuckin' Audrey Hepburn singing "Moon River", fer chrissakes. What more do you want? Why does it have to "useful"?

Thanks, Charles, that was lovely.

every character in that movie greatly annoyed me, with the exception of the cat.

If it was an Asian musical theme, he would have run her over with an SUV at the end of the clip, because he's blonde. And no, I don't feel like letting it go.

Oh Miss Audrey, I sure am glad I lived in your time.

And to think Truman thought Marilyn Monroe was right for the part (for the two or three of you out there who don't know, the movie Holly is way different than the book Holly).

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a very special memory for me for any number of reasons, but I think it might have been George Peppard in this role or possibly Lee Kinsolving in The Dark at the Top of the Stairs that caused my first episode of pre-pubescent screen lust.

What a beautiful woman and sweet song.
So you can be sweet sometimes, Charles!

Great movie. Beautiful woman. And maybe the greatest soundtrack of all time. (I also recommend the Mancini soundtrack to Touch of Evil.) Thank you, Charles.

Charles knows exactly what makes a man a writer: The hope that Audrey Hepburn will one day be singing beneath YOUR window.

Non @1,

Why do you hate Audrey Hepburn so much?
