The Movie: Sling Blade, 1996 (Billy Bob Thornton, screenwriter and director)
Who says it: Billy Bob Thornton as Karl, a disabled man released from a hospital for the criminally insane
The context: Karl is explaining to his young friend Frank (Lucas Black) why he never seriously considered suicide, because of the prospect of eternal damnation.
How to use it: To comment on any miserable place.
So this morning I'm packing up the car and the dog, and headed back up 95 to Maine... I'm varying my route a little this time, taking the Tappan Zee instead of the George Washington Bridge, so maybe it won't be so bad. And this time I'm not making the detour to Newport.
It's not such a misery, really; I like long car trips. After this one, though, I think I'll have had enough for a while. And I know Dizzy feels the same way.
