Yes, Yes, Ninotchka!

This isn’t the first time that I’ve used a quote from an old movie for a bit of Last Kiss dialogue. It’s the second. And it probably won’t be the last.

It’s not just that I’m trying to save time writing (although that’s nice too!)

Mostly it’s because I love old movies and it’s tremendous fun for me to place classic quips in the mouths of my characters and perhaps entice a few readers to seek out witty films like Ernst Lubitch’s NINOTCHKA.
