Best Movie Lines–Andrew Sullivan

FBLA approves of people stretching themselves, creatively. But Andrew Sullivan might be a poor candidate for Elasto-boy, juding by his “Best Movie Lines” contest.

Monday’s selections were abysmal. Fortunately, On The Waterfront won.

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.

Today’s choice should be a slamdunk for Apocalypse Now, although it is up against Jaws, The Godfather and Network.

But best and best known aren’t the same thing.

FBLA’s current favorite is from White Men Can’t Jump:

All I care about is getting out of the Vista View apartments, because there ain’t no “vista”, there ain’t no “view”, and there certainly ain’t no vista of no view.

Ain’t it the truth?
