A favorite quote from High Fidelity:

"Top five things I miss about Laura... 
 One: sense of humor. Very dry, but it can also be warm and forgiving. And she's got one of the best all time laughs in the history of all time laughs, she laughs with her entire body. Two: she's got character. Or at least she had character before the Ian nightmare. She's loyal and honest, and she doesn't even take it out on people when she's having a bad day. That's character." [holds up three fingers] " Three: [long pause, hesitantly] "I miss her smell. And the way she tastes. It's a mystery of human chemistry and I don't understand it... some people, as far as their senses are concerned... just feel like home." [shakes his head, recollecting, then looks back and lip syncs 'four' while holding up four fingers] "I really dig how she walks around. It's like she doesn't care how she looks or what she projects and it's not that she doesn't care it's just... she's not affected I guess. And that gives her grace. And five: she does this thing in bed when she can't get to sleep--she kinda half-moans and then rubs her feet together an equal number of times... it just kills me. Believe me, I mean, I could do a top-five-things-about-her-that-drive-me-crazy but it's just your garden variety women (you know) schizo stuff and that's the kind of thing that got me here."

What about my favorite line which starts with "Charlie!" and ends with "Let's work it out!"?

(I started to type the middle section using asterisks instead of expletives, but felt too naughty.)

I don't know what happened there... that was me.
