Excuse me, Q and A

Q: What have you grown to expect and love about Fridays?
A: The Matticus Kingdom Q and A silliness, of course!

You know why we are here, and you know what’s come before, so let’s jump right in:

A: “Garth, marriage is punishment for shoplifting in some countries.”
– Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) – Wayne’s World

Q: What do you say to someone who won’t stop talking about the story they want to write, the one they’ve had in their head since high school, the next great novel of our times?
A: “That might take years though, perhaps a pamphlet or brochure.”
– Frankie Wilde (Paul Kaye) – It’s All Gone Pete Tong

Q: What do you say the next time someone calls you sweet, or innocent, or naive, or … well, anything you don’t want to be called really?
A: “Sweet? Where do you get off? Where do you get sweet? I am dark and mysterious, and *pissed off*! And I could be very dangerous to all of you! You should know that about me… I am *the enemy*!”
– William Miller (Patrick Fugit) – Almost Famous

Q: What do you say the next time you see someone get up and leave from a situation without all of their belongings?
A: “You forgot your thingy.”
– Eddie (James Wills) – Empire Records

Oh my goodness!  Wasn’t that fun!?

Well, I thought it was, but that’s what they pay me for around here.  So, which was your favorite?  Mine was the It’s All Gone Pete Tong one…

Oh, and you probably shouldn’t use any of this in the real world.  I mean, I have, but I’m the jester so I can get away with it.


Another week, and another Q and A with a theme here at the kingdom.  Did you pick up the underlying trend from these?  It’s all about the music.  Well, sort of.  For the most part.  Either music plays a prominent role in these movies, or the music from the movies is memorable.  Oh, and lest we forget, here there be monsters.  Don’t try these at home kids.  Though these do seem to be relatively harmless compared to other weeks.  Still, it is always a good idea to proceed with caution.

    • I’ve heard good things about Downtown Abbey, but haven’t yet had a chance to check it out. It’s on my to-do list… I’ll let you know what I think once I get to it. Thanks for contributing to the Friday Q and A silliness! 🙂
