The Daily Movie Quote: The Player
"25 words or less? OK, here goes. Movie exec calls writer, writer's girlfriend tells him he's at the movies, exec goes to the movies, meets writer, drinks with writer; writer gets conked and dies in four inches of dirty water. Exec is in deep shit. What do you think?" - Walter Stuckel, The Player (1992)
