The Quotable Librarian 5

“It’s 8,862 days overdue.”

Yikes, it’s been awhile since we’ve had a “Quotable Librarian” post. For more posts featuring reel librarian quotes, click here, here, here, and here. Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans!

Big Bully (1996):

David (Rick Moranis):  I’ve always wanted to tell you what a big impact this library had on my life. It was the first place that really taught me the importance of reading, of books. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that.

Mrs. Rumpert, the school librarian (Norma MacMillan):  Green Eggs … and Ham.

David:  That’s right! That was my favorite book. How did you remember that?

Mrs. Rumpert:  It’s 8,862 days overdue.

David:  You’re serious.

Mrs. Rumpert:  It’s what I live for, dear.

Desk Set (1957):

Bunny Watson (Katharine Hepburn):  They can’t build a machine to do our job. There are too many cross-references in this place. I’d match my memory against any machines, any day.

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946):

George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart):  Where’s Mary? 

Clarence (Henry Travers):  You’re not going to like it, George. She’s an old maid. She never married. She’s just about to close up the library!

Major League (1989):

Lynn Wells (Rene Russo):  I stopped being an athelete three years ago. Books are my life now. Don’t you dare laugh. In two years, I’ve put together one of the best special collection departments in the country.

Party Girl (1995):

Judy Lindendorf (Sasha von Scherler):  Re-code it!
