On the Failings of Memory

Maybe a year ago one of my best friends and I created a series of hilarious summations of famous novels and other stories, boiled down to the perfect, single sentence, usually a pick-up line.

We never wrote them down. To this day, I only remember something about the bible, and that all of Jane Austen's works can be summed up by the single Who Framed Roger Rabbit? quote:

[Massive surprise] "A MAAAAAN!!!!"

As much as I loved the Jane Austen one, I can only lament the dozens of other quotes we lost to the fallibility of organic information storage. If we ever manage to reconstruct the list, oh man are you all in for one hell of a post. But until then, I'll just have to treat this like any other lost love:

Drink, pass out, and pretend like you'll be blissfully happy with any other for the rest of your life.
