Film quote of the day #96: The Pink Panther Strikes Again - Does you’re dog bite?

No

…I thought you said your dog did not bit?

That is not my dog.

Kinda had to be a gif this one but don’t know how to make them, plus it probably would have been more work.

It’s great to live by the spirit, to testify day by day for eternity, only what’s spiritual in people’s minds. But sometimes I’m fed up with my spiritual existence. Instead of forever hovering above I’d like to feel a weight grow in me to end the infinity and to tie me to earth. I’d like, at each step, each gust of wind, to be able to say “Now.” Now and now” and no longer “forever” and “for eternity.” To sit at an empty place at a card table and be greeted, even by a nod.
