The Best Movie Line, New New Nominee

In a The Best Of Everything demonstration of Newton's third law of motion, and hot on the heels of my posting Allex Spires' nomination for The Best Movie Line, we've got our third submission.

And, it's from an Alex. Weird coincidence? Or cosmic conspiracy. We'll probably never know.

The new Alex is Alex M, and you can find out more about him here. Alex has some background in this, working in a production company, so his nomination might carry some weight even if it wasn't a good one on its own.

And Alex M's. nomination has the benefit (like mine) of being the actual quote, not the one that people (mis)remember.

Alex M.'s nomination:

"My fave, always, is "Play it Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By'""

Alex M. didn't explain why, and I won't purport to. But it's a good quote anyway, even if most people will tell you (erroneously) that the quote is "Play it again, Sam." (It's not, as you can see:

and that's a first for me: A parenthetical insertion of Youtube!)

Go here for what looks to be a good explanation of the actual sequence of the quotes. (Go here for a humorous reason why you might not want to trust Wikipedia all the time.)
