I like title song of Jewel's new album (Goodbye Alice in Wonderland), but my real love is for:
Other things wot are awesome:"But, Mr. Adams" (via thistlerose's music post) and oh, listening to it... so much love. Allie, we've gotta watch that movie some time. (Also, listening to Mr. Adams I thought, "I totally know him, but from where?" IMDb to the rescue. This makes this even more awesome)
Franklin: Mr. Adams, I say you should write it;Adams: Mr. Jefferson,
To your legal mind and brilliance we defer.
Adams: Is that so? Well, if I'm the one to do it,
They'll run their quill pens through it;
I'm obnoxious and disliked, you know that, sir.
Franklin: Yes, I know.
Jefferson: Mr. Adams, I have not seen my wife
for the past 6 months.
I beg of you Mr. Adams
Adams: 'And we solidly declare
that we will preserve our liberties
being with one mind
resolved to die free men
rather than to live slaves'
Thomas Jefferson on the necessity of taking up arms, 1775.
Magnificent. You write 10 times better than any man in Congress.
For a man of only 33 years
You have a happy talent of composition
and a remarkable felicity of expression.
Now then sir, will you be a patriot or a lover?
Jefferson: A lover.
Jefferson: But I burn, Mr. A!
Adams: So do I, Mr. J!
Sherman: You do?
Franklin: John! Who'd have thought it?
