Last night I was flipping through the channels and came upon a fluff movie called Night at the Museum 2 - not expecting much, but I was doing about three other things so I left it on.
I actually had to pause at the exchange between Amelia Earhart and the Tuskeegee Airman when he saluted her and thanked her saying "A lot of people didn't think we could fly, either. Thanks for clearing the runway".
Damn if I didn't get a little choked up in an otherwise silly movie. It was quite beautiful.
The absolute funniest moment of the movie was this exchange between Ben Stiller and Hank Azaria as Kahmunrah which was largely improvised:Larry Daley:
You don't want to give me my friends, then you're not gonna get your combination or your Tablet.
Kah Mun Rah: Alright, I'll tell you what, alright. They didn't call me Kahmunrah the Trustworthy for nothing, alright?
[starts to hand him the hourglass] Kah Mun Rah:
Here you go...
[jerks it back] Kah Mun Rah:
They DIDN'T call me Kahmunrah the trustworthy! They called me Kahmunrah the BLOODTHIRSTY, who kills whoever dosen't give Kahmunrah exactly what he want's in the moment that he want's it, which is RIGHT NOW, when I had also better get the combination and the Tablet! Larry Daley:
That's what they called you? Kah Mun Rah:
It was shorter in Egyptian. Larry Daley:
Great, well, I'll give you the comination after you give him back!
[reaches for the tablet] Kah Mun Rah:
How dare you! If you touch that again I shall kill you right now. Do not touch this.
[makes a line infront of the hourglass with his hand] Kah Mun Rah:
This is a 'No-Touching' zone! Larry Daley:
Good, well, then...
[reaches for it] Kah Mun Rah:
Oh my GOD! I can't belive you reached across like that again! I can't even believe it! Oh, God! I want to kill you right now! If you didn't know this combination, you would be so dead right now, it would be unbelivable! Larry Daley:
Great, well, I do know the combination... Kah Mun Rah:
[making a line with his arm] DON't CROSS THIS LINE with your hand!
[Larry starts to say something] Kah Mun Rah:
How dare you! If you speak again, if you SPEAK AGAIN, I'm going to kill you! Do you understand this? Don't say it! Oh, God I see you getting ready! Oh, my GOD! Don't say anything! Now, give me that Tablet and tell me the combination.
