    Favorite movie from the 90’s… Probably “The Matrix” (1999). Watching “Toys” (1992) right now, though, which I love.

  • I’m gonna go with The Matrix

    Forrest Gump.

    Drill Sergeant: Gump! What’s your sole purpose in this army?
    Forrest Gump: To do whatever you tell me, drill sergeant!
    Drill Sergeant: God damn it, Gump! You’re a god damn genius! This is the most outstanding answer I have ever heard. You must have a goddamn I.Q. of 160. You are goddamn gifted, Private Gump. Listen up, people…
    Forrest Gump: [narrates] Now for some reason I fit in the army like one of them round pegs. It’s not really hard. You just make your bed real neat and remember to stand up straight and always answer every question with “Yes, drill sergeant.”
    Drill Sergeant: …Is that clear?
    Forrest Gump: Yes, drill sergeant!
