    Why, Thank you. And I was just passing through while logging on at work!

    Well, here's one, but I don't know if it will be figured out that fast.

    I was a Muslim in South Dakota. All of a sudden, they made it a crime.

    Absolutely! Some people can't even talk about actual issues they may have with the film, without bringing hoary old anti-Costner baggage in. Even David Brin has mentioned that, despite the vast difference between the film and his novel, they actually did hit the core points in some very moving ways.

    well, anyway...here's a blast from the past....

    It seems apparent that our citizens are staying off the streets, which may make scoring particularly difficult, even with this year's rule changes.

    Well...if it's not that one... Actually, the problem is that I can think of a few that one's.

    That's the one! Next time, I will not use a quote that has been pirated by a hundred other movies!

    Is that The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - radio version, when they found the ship that'd been waiting ages for lemon-scented paper handkerchiefs?

    Not Airplane 2 or Final Destination. The line isn't spoken by a human.
    The film has been quoted several times over the history of this thread.. like that helps!

    No, they are as seamless as Fronkensteen I tell you, seamless! (trying to wrap it up into a kind of Mobius strip)

    More hints? ok the 'lunch & drinks after' comment I mentioned earlier was sort of a clue too.

    Then I realized part way through the posting process that you said it was quoted, not just mentioned.

    Here's my wag....MILLENNIUM(yeah, that's right...the Cheryl Ladd MILLENNIUM! )

    I'm probably wrong. Amazingly enough, I actually found a site that sells various sound clips for generic usage...and that soundbite is there!!! Of course, it gives no info on it's source. The clip sounds like it could have come from anywhere between 1950 and 1989 .
