I'm cheating. I may cheat for a little while, too, until something comes to me.
I'm attempting to write two reviews. But when it comes to stuff I like, it takes forever to figure out how to express myself. I'm trying for a much less stupid way of saying "this book is like...SO good, guys!" but the thesaurus only does so much work for you. In person I'm even worse; this is why I don't talk much.
Anyway, thanks to my ineptness, I always appreciate a good dialogue scene, whether in print or on screen. The first thing that comes to mind is the dinner scene from the vastly underrated Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country. It's quite possibly the best of the original series after Wrath of Khan (except for maybe The Search for Spock. Ranking is a tough call). I feel for the crew of the Enterprise; it must be tough to make conversation with a Klingon. I'd be all, "What's the weather like on Qo'noS? Nippy? It's no Rura Penthe, I bet...that's a joke, son...more ale?"
Enjoy! The Hamlet and Hitler jokes are killer. (7:02)
