I love witty banter. I love it person, I love it in email, I love it on tv and of course I love it in movies.
I was watching The Thin Man the other day. Nick Charles is in bed after being shot by a bad guy. His wife Nora brings him a bunch of newspapers and drops them on the bed. Nick picks one up, reads the headline and flourishes it at Nora.
Nick: I'm a hero. I was shot twice in the Tribune.
Nora: I read where you were shot five times in the tabloids.
Nick: It's not true. He didn't come anywhere near my tabloids.
