When my friend Brian Abrams reached out to ask me if I would be interested in having him on the show to talk about his new book about famous movie quotes I thought – I’d love to have you on but I’m not sure I am the best person to interview you on this which is why I reached out to my friend, Comedian and film nerd Christian Finnegan. I loved producing this interview and I hope you love hearing it. Thanks again to Christian and Brian for doing it!

Drawing on interviews, archival sleuthing, and behind-the-scenes details, the book examines the origins and deeper meanings of hundreds of film lines: how they’ve impacted, shaped, and reverberated through the culture, defined eras in Hollywood, and become cemented in the modern lexicon.
Packed with film stills, sidebars, lists, and other fun detours throughout movie history, the book covers all genres and a diverse range of directors, writers, and audiences.
