What came before, but the faithful kingdom readers already knew that…
And, as you should know, over the years I’ve incorporated a whole slew of movie dialogue into my day-to-day lingo. On to business with no further adieu:

Q: What do you say your significant other when reminiscing about how you first met?
A: “Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, ‘Hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?'”
– Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) – You’ve Got Mail
(It was brought to my attention, by my AMAZING wife, that Joe Fox (the Tom Hanks character quoted above) is in fact from “You’ve Got Mail” rather than “Across the Universe.” We apologize for this mistake and any inconvience it may have caused our faithful readers and have taken the necessary steps to correct it.)
