Delightful Dialogue: Beetlejuice

Adam: What are your qualifications?

Betelgeuse: Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?

~ Alec Baldwin and Michael Keaton in Beetle Juice (1988)

Oh my gosh this was my absolute favorite movie as a kid. I made my parents rent it so many times, I think I wore it out. Of course when I started making my own money I HAD to buy it for myself. ;)
