I love sooooo much that you recently shared this. Noelle and I were just yesterday (or was it the day before?) revisiting in our minds this spectacularly earnest moment in cinema. I think of it often, but Noelle was quoting it verbatim. Eat your heart out, St. Crispin's Day speech.

That’s wonderful. It strikes a chord, to be sure. Send love to N!

Yeah, it sure does. And it's a complex chord, because we relate to the little fella's disillusionment and loss, even while we're trying not to fall over laughing at his melodrama. At least, that's what it's like for me. It crystallizes the moment of pathetic self-realization, mixed with a certain portion of sympathy.

Will do! Love to G-X & R too!
