I'm doing whatnot and nothing on the internets when the historian calls me from the other room:
The historian: They're showing Inside Man, with one of my all-time favorite Jodie Foster performances.
[Jodie Foster is being silken and threatening and also patronizing. Denzel is having none of it.]
Denzel Washington: You got a card, in case I need to call you?
Jodie Foster: Please don't take this personally, but no. I don't think you can afford me.
Denzel Washington: Well, don't take this personally, Miss White. Kiss my black ass, okay?
Me: Jeez I love this movie.
The historian: 'Kiss my black ass, okay?' There's sure a lot of patronizing going on.
[A commercial comes on.]
The historian: [with a small yet decided amount of heat:] The only thing wrong with this is these cussing commercials every ten minutes!
Me: It's capitalism, that's all. Just capitalism. Capitalism is ruining our television experience!
The historian: That's not even the half of it. [pauses, so that we may reflect:] Not EVEN the HALF of it.
