*If You Don't Love Alan Rickman, the Terrorists Have Won

Is that title in bad taste today, even though it would be fine any other day?

I won't post about the day, other than to ask everyone to reflect on those we've lost: on that day and since. Also, to note one thing on a more personal level...last night, my nephew was asking about war because a war movie was on in the other room while he and I played Go Fish. It occurred to me that my nephew, who will be 7 years old in a few months, has lived his whole life with his country at war. Looking at him, 7 years somehow seems longer than it would otherwise.

[Insert awkward transition here.]

So. Points must be awarded for Round Three:

Stephen, 2 points...character name and movie title.

Jim, 2 points...context and referring to Umbridge as the rolly-polly.

If my math and memory are correct, point totals thus far are: Stephen 4, Jim 4, McGehee 3, and Shank 1.

Now for Round Four:

"I'm pissed off is what I am! Do you go around drenching everyone who comes into your room with flame-retardant chemicals? No wonder you're single."

Dogma, when he appears in the lady's room and she tries to spray him with a fire extinguisher.

Oh, Gabriel, Dogma.

Rickman was the Metatron in Dogma. According to various sources, Gabriel and the Metatron are not the same.

Hey, you won't catch me arguing with a pastor on the subject, Mike!

Hopefully I'll still get points for title and context...

Dammit! I missed Dogma. Unfair! Unfair, I say!

Damn having to work.
