Do you know how some movie lines just stick with you? Sure, there are classic lines from blockbusters that everyone over 30 should be able to recite, but I’m talking about those remote lines from random movies that, when you hear them, they just wedge themselves into your noggin and stay there until you need it.
For me, one such instance was the film “My Favorite Year,” starring Peter O’Toole, about a soused movie star (O’Toole) turning up for a minor TV show appearance, with predictable mayhem. The first laugh doesn’t come until 20 minutes in, when Benji, played by Mark Linn-Baker watches as the valet opens up O’Toole’s suitcase revealing nothing but booze and socks.
“These must be his drinking socks,” said Benji and from that moment forward, I’ve always known I would need that quote.
