Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???  “You’re going into the men’s room.” “Huh? Oh, so I am. I do need new glasses.”

ANSWER: Mrs. Doubtfire! When Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) loses his job, his irresponsibility makes life impossible for his wife Miranda(Sally Field) and she reluctantly decides to divorce him. A judge decrees that in order to help Daniel to get his

life in order, he can see his children just one day a week. He can’t bear this, and when Miranda advertises for a housekeeper to help her, Daniel decides to don a disguise and apply for the job as a British nanny named Mrs. Doubtfire.
