"My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood; this is my street; this is my life. I am 42 years old; in less than a year I will be dead. Of course I don’t know that yet, and in a way, I am dead already."

The Book Thief (2013), dir. Brian Percival"She leaned down and looked at his lifeless face and Liesel kissed her best friend, Rudy Steiner, soft and true on his lips. He tasted dusty and sweet. He tasted like regret in the shadows of trees and in the glow of the anarchist’s suit collection. She kissed him long and soft, and when she pulled herself away, she touched his mouth with her fingers. She did not say goodbye. She was incapable, and after a few more minutes at his side, she was able to tear herself from the ground. It amazes me what humans can do, even when streams are flowing down their faces and they stagger on, coughing and searching, and finding.”

A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004), dir. Brian SilberlingWhen the children first meet Count Olaf and Jim Carrey says, “Give me the line again,” was not actually in the script, it was Carrey staying in character wanting to try it again, but they kept the cameras rolling and felt it worked the way it happened.
