“I killed Yvette. I hated her SO much, it… it flamed… flames. FLAMES… on the side of my face… Breathing… breathle… heating breath…”

From: Clue

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Mrs. White

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from comedy mystery whodunnit, Clue. Based on the board game, the movie gathers a star-studded cast where they are trapped in a mansion while the people around them start getting murdered. The film, while initially a critical and financial flop, has become a cult-classic.

The quote comes from the third ending of the movie. As Wadsworth (played by Tim Curry) explains who murdered the various people, he proclaims that Mrs. White (played by Madeline Khan) murdered the maid, Yvette. Wadsworth explained she was jealous of Yvette as the maid had an affair with her late husband. Enraged, Mrs. White delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom:  Sometimes, we can get so mad we can hardly talk. In these times, it may be best to take a deep breath to try to calm ourselves down first.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
