    Wait, I’m sorry, I just started checking this site recently. But what? How is that quote answered from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? That quote is my favorite quote from Almost Famous, said by Penny Lane played by Kate Hudson. Right?

    • that was yesterday’s quote answer !!

    • Welcome, Raphael. I always post a new quote on the “Of the Day” and encourage people to name the movie in the comments. Then the next day (or a few days later) I will post the answer along with a new quote. Hope you stick around!

      • Raphael

        Oh wow! I’m embarrassed! AHAHAHAH! I just got taken aback ’cause I’m new here and all. Well, new to the whole commenting side. But I’ve been an avid visitor of the site since 2009’s Oscar race began. Love your writing!

    • Jose

      Hence the words “Yesterday’s Answer” in bold.

  • I made the same mistake, Raphael, and I write for this website…

    • Raphael

      Hahaha! I love that! I’m not alone. Thank you for saving me from the shame of solitary mistakes.
