That other quotation from a movie trailer

“Champagne for my real friends, and real pain for my sham friends.”

It’s from the free preview for the movie The 25th Hour. I didn’t watch the movie, but there’s a cleverness and relatability to the quotation that makes it resonate with me.

Ha, yes, I do know yesterday was Christmas, and it’s the season of giving and good cheer and all. But, you have to admit we’ve all had times when you found out who your real friends were…. and weren’t. And, when that time came/comes… and for a good while afterward, that quotation has a definite “yup” factor. Tonight I saw the preview for the movie, heard the quote, went “yup” and posted it here (Not that any of my sham friends read this or would even care what I have to say anymore).

Hey, I could’ve picked “I really wish you would’ve just put the bunny in the box” from Con Air, but that doesn’t have quite the same connectability – or maybe it does.
