has anybody been practicing their plainview impersonations? it took me a while, but my buddies say i'm starting to get good at "i drink your milkshake" and "bastard in a basket."  we had a lot of trouble with the laugh after "...people."

I've been working on mine since the teaser.  I incorporate, "Ladies and gentlemen, if I say ____________ , you will agree," into casual conversation.

i've been in a room with four Plainview impressions going. the most popular phrase by far is "THERE'S A WHOLE OCEAN OF OIL!" followed by "I've abandoned my child!" mind you none of the four had seen the movie at the time. i've gotten pretty good. have yet to try milkshake, bastard, or fool. i don't understand how ddl didn't wreck his voice. it's so.. scratchy/throaty. maybe he did it some other way.

The line I like to say is "this is my son, H-double-U Plainview." I then follow that with politically incorrect impressions of adult HW... :yabbse-undecided:

i'm kinda doing that anyway, usually without the accent.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I've pretty much got the "why don't I own this?" speech down.

I pulled that one out as I was walking through Borders with my girlfriend and saw the 3-disc "Hot Fuzz" special edition.  It was a spot-on impression, but she said she would break up with me if I ever did it again.  I'm pretty sure she was kidding....   :ponder:
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

nothing better than giving someone the ol' "Do you understand, (their name)? That's more to the point, do you understand?"
they get scared.

This reminds me of the time you guys all went out and got those little orange hats that Team Zissou wears.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.
