    I have many favorite movie lines. But I think my all time favorite is from the film Anastasia, which starred Ingrid Bergman and Yul Brenner. Akim Tamiroff played one of Yul's sidekicks, the former manager of the Moscow Art Theater under Stanislavsky.

    They are debating whether or not this girl [played by Bergman] could really be Anastasia, and Tamiroff's character says:

    "As the great Stanislavsky used to say, when an actor believes he IS the character-- fire him!"

    The Jerk

    Navin R. Johnson -

    "I know we've only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it. "
