Inspired by Mr B Bart's current Avatar!

Priest: Do you, Ming the Merciless, Ruler of the Universe take this Earthling, Dale Arden to be your Empress of the hour?
Ming: (pause) of the hour, Yes.
Priest: Do you promise to use her as you will?
Ming: (pause, then very slyly) Certainly!
Priest: Not to blast her into space?
Ming: (silence)
Priest: ....Until such time as you get the whim....?
Ming: I do.
Our Flyer,
Who drink in heaven,
FSM be thy name,
Thy ketchup come,
Thy sauce be done,
On earth as it's served in heaven.
Give us this day our garlic bread,
And forgive over cooked Tagliatelle,
As we forgive those who serve it to us.
And lead us not into takeaways,
Who deliver pizzas so evil.
For thine is the pasta, al dente cooked spaghetti.
For breakfast and dinner,
RAmen

Evey Hammond: Who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey Hammond: Oh. Right.

V: But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.
V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?

V: I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking with?
Evey Hammond: I'm Evey.
V: Evey? E-V. Of course you are.
Evey Hammond: What does that mean?
V: It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and I don't believe in coincidences.

Roy Hunter wrote:Hugo Weaving gets everywhere these days. That's why we have replaced Kevin Bacon with Hugo Weaving in the Kevin Bacon game (ie - six degrees of movie separation). You can get from any actor to Hugo Weaving in six moves or less.


My version of that game is "Six degrees of movie separation from Danny Elfman," have to connect an actor/actress to a movie that Danny Elfman did the soundtrack for. Example:

Mark Hammill was in Star Wars with Carrie Fisher (1), who was in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back with Kevin Smith (2), who was in Dogma with Matt Damon (3), who was in Good Will Hunting, soundtrack by Danny Elfman (4).

OK, I don't have enough movie trivia to do the Hugo Weaving game out of my head, but at least I found a shorter path starting with Fred Astaire:

Fred Astaire was in Ghost Story with Alice Krige(1), who was in Star Trek First Contact with James Cromwell (2), who was in Babe with Hugo Weaving (who voiced the dog)(3).

Anybody come up with a shorter one?

Hooray for me!

We just saw Madagascar 2, and it had a wonderful line. The Lemur King had just persuaded the other animals that the way to end the water shortage was to sacrifice one of their number to the water gods by throwing them in the volcano. As they rush off to do this, the King says:

"Hurry up, before we all come to our senses!"
