Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
There was a man driving down the road behind an 18-wheeler, at every stoplight the trucker would get
out of the cab, run back and bang on the trailer door. After seeing this at several intersections in a row
the motorist followed him until he pulled into a parking lot.
When they both had come to a stop the truck driver once again jumped out and started banging on the
trailer door. The motorist went up to him and said, “I don’t mean to be nosey but why do you keep banging on that door?”
To which the trucker replied, “Sorry, can’t talk now, I have 20 tons of canaries and a 10-ton limit,
so I have to keep half of them flying at all times.” 😳
Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Oh, I had some bets down for you. You saw some money.”
“You don’t understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.
Let’s face it. It was you, Charley.”
Answer: On the Waterfront!
In the events leading up to this scene boxer-turned-longshoreman Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) struggles to stand up to corrupt union bosses. Much of this movie was shot on location around the docks of Hoboken, New Jersey. In this scene in the back seat of a taxicab Terry realizes his brother Charley ‘the Gent’ Malloy (Rod Steiger) is the real cause of his lack of boxing success. Charley tries to blame it on Terry’s manager but Terry says, “It wasn’t him, Charley. It was you. Remember that night in the Garden you came down to my dressing room and you said, “Kid, this ain’t your night. We’re going for the price on Wilson.” You remember that? “This ain’t your night.” My night! I coulda taken Wilson apart! So what happens? He gets the title shot outdoors in the ballpark and what do I get? A one way ticket to Palookaville! You was my brother, Charley, you shoulda looked out for me a little bit. You shoulda taken care of me just a little bit so I wouldn’t have to take them dives for the short-end money.” Charley tries to protest with line one but Terry finally understands the situation and says line two. In the 1955 Academy Awards “On the Waterfront” won eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Marlon Brando for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Actress (and future princess of Monaco) Grace Kelly turned down the role of Edie Doyle (the part played by Eva Marie Saint), deciding to make the 1954 movie “Rear Window” instead.
