Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…
A woman goes to the local psychic in hopes of contacting her
dearly departed grandmother. The psychic’s eyelids begin
fluttering, her hands float up above the table, and she
begins moaning. Eventually, a coherent voice emanates saying,
“Granddaughter? Are you there?”
The woman, wide-eyed and on the edge of her seat, responds,
“Grandmother? Is that you?”
“Yes granddaughter, it’s me.”
“It’s really, really you, grandmother?”, the woman repeats.
“Yes, it’s really me, granddaughter.”
The woman looks puzzled, “You’re sure it’s you, grandmother?”
“Yes, granddaughter, I’m sure it’s me.”
The woman pauses a moment, “Grandmother, I have just one
question for you.”
“Anything, my child.”
“Grandmother, when did you learn to speak English?” 😳
Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“Seven dwarfs?” “The seven CEOs of Big Tobacco. They got up in front of Congress that time. It was on television…”
In this scene, TV show “60 Minutes” producer Lowell Bergman (Al Pacino) is talking to Brown & Williamson research chemist, Dr. Jeffrey Wigand (Russell Crowe), while sitting in a car. Bergman is using Wigand’s expertise anonymously in explaining some scientific documents for a future “60 Minutes” story, but Wigand is suspicious Bergman has identified him (he hasn’t). When the conversation turns to responsibility in business, Wigand says he admires the CEO of Johnson & Johnson, who voluntarily pulled Tylenol off the shelves of every store in America when he found out that somebody had put poison in a few Tylenol bottles. He then sarcastically adds, “Not like the Seven Dwarfs.” When Bergman appears puzzled and asks the question in line one, Wigand starts to reply with line two. Bergman suddenly understands and completes Dr. Wigand’s sentence with, “Oh, yeh, yeh, yeh, …and swore under oath that they know nothing about addiction, disease…” This movie tells the true story of whistleblower Dr. Jeffrey Wigand, who agreed to appear on “60 Minutes” and expose Big Tobacco’s cynical and deliberate attitude on the addictive drug nicotine in cigarettes, and the resulting power play between Big Tobacco and CBS News (producer of “60 Minutes”). This is also a gut-wrenching story of how the lives of Wigand and his family are affected. As Bergman says later in the movie, “These are ordinary people under extraordinary pressure, Mike.”
