Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Preparing for a family vacation, my sister-in-law and her
husband explained to their young children that they would
be sitting in the car for a very long time. The kids were
told they would not be arriving at their destination until
after dark, and were warned not to keep saying, “Are we
there yet?”

Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “It’s funny, you know. It’s a good story, it’s funny, you’re a funny guy.”
“What do you mean, you mean the way I talk?”

Answer: Goodfellas!
In this scene several mobsters are socializing at a nightclub when Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) tells a story. Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) reacts with the first line. Hair-trigger Tommy suddenly gets serious and says the second line and then adds, “You mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you?” He later acts like it was all an act and says, “I almost had him.” Although the characters in “Goodfellas” were fictionalized, the story was based on actual incidents and people. When the real Henry Hill entered the Witness Protection Program he was relocated to Redmond, WA, and while there he ran an Italian restaurant. In the 1991 Academy Awards, Joe Pesci won the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and “Goodfellas” was nominated but did not win in five more categories (including Best Picture). Best Picture that year was won by “Dances with Wolves.”
