Your Favorite Edited-for-TV Movie Quotes

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. In yesterday's post on Hollywood knockoffs, Cole Gamble mentioned the infamous TV version of Samuel L. Jackson's big line in Snakes on a Place—"I've had it with these monkey fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane!" A few readers chimed in with their favorites, so let's bring that conversation over here. It's not very exciting, but growing up I always liked "When this baby hits 88 miles-per-hour, you're gonna see some serious stuff." What's a edited-for-TV quote you particularly enjoyed?

2. Back in March, we discussed what advice you'd give your 15-year-old self. Some really great responses. Today let's turn that around. After being briefed on your current situation, what one piece of advice do you think your 15-year-old self would give the 2010 you?

3. From time to time while driving around with my two-year-old daughter, I'll get the bizarre sensation that I forgot to strap her in. (To be clear, the fear is not about whether she's buckled securely into her car seat. My concern is that I somehow managed to forget about her in the driveway and simply drove off on my own.) What's something irrational that you're afraid of?

4. While the world doesn't need any more cable channels, let's say you've been handed a pile of money to start one. It has to be something not already available, and it has to be something you'd actually watch. What would be the focus of your channel?

Have a great weekend!

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
