o Evening news is where they begin with ‘Good evening’, and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
On duty as a customer-service rep for a car-rental company, I took a call from a driver who needed
a tow. He was stranded on a busy highway, but he didn’t know the make of the car he was driving.
I asked again for a more detailed description beyond a “blue, four-door sedan.”
“It’s the one on fire,” he replied. 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Seven weeks sailing, and he happens in darkness on our exact position.”
“Hmm. Well, the French have their spies in England and elsewhere. As do we.”
Answer: Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World!
This movie is set in the early 1800s during the Napoleonic Wars. In the events leading up to this scene, Capt. Jack “Lucky Jack” Aubrey (Russell Crowe), commander of the British man-of-war HMS Surprise, opens orders while underway to sink or capture the French privateer Acheron, which has been deployed to the region. In this scene Midshipman Hollom (Lee Ingleby) spots the Acheron in a fog bank after seven weeks of uneventful sailing and it opens fire on HMS Surprise. After Surprise manages to escape into a fog bank, Capt. Aubrey says line one to the ship’s surgeon, Dr. Stephen Maturin (Paul Bettany). Dr. Maturin replies with line two. In the 2004 Academy Awards “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World ” won two Oscars and was nominated in eight other categories, including Best Picture (but lost to “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”). This is the first movie to include scenes filmed on the Galapagos Islands. Russell Crowe did most of his own violin playing in this movie. He learned to play for the film (and said it was the hardest thing he’d ever done for a movie).
