Guess what I watched last night? :D

Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker): I can't. It's too big!
Frank Oz (Yoda): Size matters not.

Just heard a nice one on BBC4's new Dirk Gently-episode.
Spoiler: show
Leading it in is a later to be murdered woman posing as the wife of an already murdered client :mrgreen: :
Girl : Can you be discrete?
Dirk : I stake my reputation on it.
Followed by...


"In fact i've been known to be so discrete that even my clients doubt i'm working on their case." :mrgreen:

From the Mummy:
Evelyn has had a few drinkies...

Evelyn: Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
Rick: And what is that?
Evelyn: I... am a librarian.

Indeed.

The 3rd one was on last weekend. His wife totally changed, and his son looked to be in his late teens/early twenties, yet Brendan Fraser didn't look any older than he did in the first one!!

You'd think he'd notice that his wife had changed, wouldn't you? :mrgreen:

I said much the same when it came out. Very odd. Perhaps that's what digging up Mummy's does to your wife! :mrgreen:

It was strange how the son has a lovely English voice and then in Film three turns up with an american one! Most peculiar! :mrgreen:

Continuity not one of their strong points, then!!

It's like my very favourite show of all time - A Town Called Eureka.

The continuity is appalling on that.

One character (a woman) has a tattoo on her arm. Then she doesn't. Then it comes back. Astonishing lack of continunity.

And once character says that her babydaddy is an immunologist <?sp>, but he miraculously turns into an epidemiologist <?sp> when the bowling team turn green.

Don't ask!!

I thought they covered that up quite well with the book reading scene early on :lol:
