Stories we love to share, because by sharing them, we get something out of the hour or two we wasted on the wrong person. But that’s all bad first dates are: short stories. Good first dates are more than short stories. They are first chapters. On a good first date, everything is springtime. And when a good first date becomes a relationship, the springtime lingers. Even after it’s over, there can be springtime.” ~ David Levithan

  35. “The fact that ‘A Dirty Job’ has comedy and supernatural horror in it, that both are woven in and out of it with a whimsical tone, despite the fact that it’s about death, makes it hard to characterize with standard genre labels – but I have no problem with that. I’d call it a funny story about death, and leave it at that.” ~ Christopher Moore

Coca-Cola grew up with the country, shaping and shaped by the times. The drink not only helped to alter consumption patterns, but attitudes toward leisure, work, advertising, sex, family life, and patriotism.” ~ Mark Pendergrast

I was like, “Holy moley, that’s Terrence Malick!” So I went and told the PA, “Hey, Terrence Malick is here, and I think he wants to see the Coen brothers. He wants to talk to Joel and Ethan.” He just showed up unannounced, uninvited, and I guess they spent their lunch hour with him.” ~ David Krumholtz
  40. “I have one funny story – because we knew we don’t have fangs. But I remember I told Billy (Tangradi) “Dude, where’s your fangs?”, and he was flipping out because then he would have to run back to the hair and make-up trailer, they would be like “You don’t have fangs.” and then he’d run back and I’m like, “Dude, where’s your fangs,” It was great. A little easy.” ~ Kellan Lutz
