“Joe? Just call me Joe?”

March 26, 2008

I am sending out invitations to an event, and there is a Kathleen Kelley.

So now I am sitting here thinking about all the things I love about “You’ve Got Mail”.  I am opening up the floor for discussion about “You’ve Got Mail”. And by discussion I mean — let’s share lines.

Today, I need to be reminded to “Go to the mattresses.” And “Leave the gun; take the canoli.”

What kind of day aphoto1.jpgre you having?

    “She ran away with the Nanny? How ironic!”

    “Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flowers?”

    “For me the Internet is just yet another way of being rejected by women.” (or in my case, men)

    “If I hadn’t been FoxBooks and you hadn’t been the Shop Around the Corner… and you and I had, just you know, met… Yeah. I would have asked for your phone number and I wouldn’t have been able to wait 24 hours before calling and asking, ‘How about coffee, drinks, dinner, a movie, for as long as we both shall live?'”

    “I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.”

    “What is that? What is that? What are you doing? You’re taking all the caviar? That caviar is a *garnish*!”

    “Mr. 152 insights into my soul. “

    Okay, I just like all those quotes. If I had to choose one to explain the day I’m having, I’d go with this one:

    “You’re daring to march into the unknown armed with…nothing. Have a sandwich. “

    “Oh. Let me guess. From the Internet?”
    “You’ve… got mail.”
    “Three very powerful words.”

    I just love how she whispers “Yes” at the end.

    “I think you have a gift for it. It was a perfect blend of poetry and meaness.”

    I love the “freshly sharpened bouquet of pencils” phrasing.

    It makes me feeling like “twirling.”

    “go to the mattresses” still have no idea what it means but it sounds…manly

    “I am a lone reed, standing tall, waving boldly, in the corrupt sands of commerce.”

    I absolutely love this movie!! Hi Amanda btw…congratulations on your baby…do you remember me…I used to work in the business office and I think we met at antioch too…in any case…

    When Kathleen, Christina, and George are standing in front of the construction site of Fox Books…Christina says “kel nightmare.” In that perfectly drawling voice of hers…

    Joe: He could be the Zipper Man.
    Kathleen: Who?
    Joe: This guy on Amsterdam who repairs zippers. You’ll never have to buy new luggage.

    George: I’m going to get some eucalyptus candles cuz it makes my apartment smell Moss-a.

    Birdie: If you ever need any money, just ask me…I bought Intel at $6! 🙂
