theme thursday :: limousine

{a scene from a limousine and my favorite all time movie quote...}

Linus speaking into a dictophone while Fairchild drives him into the city...

Linus: Fairchild, I'll be needing you tonight.

Fairchild: [with a distinct british accent] yes, sir.

Linus: I'm taking Sabrina out again

Fairchild: yes, sir

Linus: Can you have her in my office at seven o'clock?

Fairchild: [rather abrubtly] yes, sir

Linus: Anything wrong fairchild?

Fairchild: I would very much prefer that you dispense with my services on these dates with my daughter, sir. It makes for a rather awkward situation.

Linus: Oh, I see. Well, it never occured to me I'm sorry.

Fairchild: It's just not right, sir. I like to think of life like a limousine. Though we are all driving together we must remember our places. There's a front seat and a back seat and a window in between.

Linus: Fairchild I never realized it before but you're a terrible snob!

Fairchild: [rather snobbish] Yes, sir.

Sabrina tribute here.

Living back in and around Palm Beach always reminds me of this quote. I remember visiting the mansions as a child completely awestruck knowing that I will always be a visitor.

And I'm absolutely fine with it!

  8. Oh, I adore this movie!! The original with Hepburn and Bogey is fabulous, but the remake is also dreamy.

  9. Now I must see the movie.
    And I think it's so funny how he acknowledged his snobbery.
    Ha.
    I was once called a "Stuck-up White B#$^&%".
    Double Ha!

  12. I loved both versions of the movie but can't say, I care much for limousines. I find wealth and ostentation very intimidating. So often 'new money' shows poor taste. Lovely post tho and so cute that your Military Man comments!
