Favourite film quote:

“If I drive for you, you get your money.  You tell me where we start, where we’re going, where we’re going afterwards.  I give you five minutes when we get there.  Anything happens in that five minutes and I’m yours. No matter what.  Anything a minute on either side of that and you’re on your own.  I don’t sit in while you’re running it down.  I don’t carry a gun.  I drive.” – Ryan Gosling in Drive.
