it's a bitter little world

it's a bitter little world bookoooh i want this book! add this to my christmas 2005 wishlist that's not gonna get fulfilled.

Amazon book description: Everything you need to know in life you can learn from film noir. And everything you can learn from film noir, you can find in It's a Bitter Little World.

Sample quotes from Mad Professor:

Out of the Past [1947]
JEFF BAILEY/JEFF MARKHAM: I sell gasoline, I make a small profit. With that,I buy groceries. The grocer makes a profit. We call it earning a living. You may have heard of it somewhere.

Ride the Pink Horse [1947]
FRANK HUGO: Small fry. All your life you waste time worrying about small fry things. About a job. About a two buck raise. About getting a pension.

FRANK HUGO: Guys like you work all their lives breaking their backs, trying to earn meat and potatoes. You end up borrowing enough money to buy a hole in the ground to get buried in. Then when you get a chance to make some realscratch, what do you do, mice like you and Shorty? You ask for peanuts.

Force of Evil [1948] WALLY: What do you mean “gangsters”? It’s business.
this is my favorite quote:

Pitfall [1948] TOMMY FORBES: Is there anything you want me to do today, Dad?
JOHN FORBES: Yeah. Until my rich uncle dies, quit growing.
