  • Since DawgDeputy, a user I previously knew as WikiLubber, is interested in this movie's talk page, which has not been ever used before, I am going to establish it. So here we are. I moved my notes on the LOQ for this movie to the section below. --AC9016 (talk) 02:23, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

LOQ[edit]

  • To be certain, I will add a limit-of-quotes section here. As originally mentioned, if I am correct, 92 minutes divided by 12 minutes per quote (or section of dialogue) comes out to 7.6 quotes. Since you can't do a 6/10ths quote, my reasoning is that it can be reasonably rounded up to 8, which is where the page sits- 8 quotes- as of the time of this posting. If I am incorrect in any of these calculations, or if any other input or commentary might be out there, I would welcome it. My sole interest is in making the page this talk page refers to, and Wikiquote as a whole, better than I found it. --AC9016 (talk) 02:59, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Captioned Images[edit]

  • I want to specifically thank DawgDeputy, despite any disagreements, for working with me on the captioned images I added. It was difficult to find suitable images for a film from 1987 and match up some quotes with them, but it seems to have worked out well overall. I think 4 of them is good for a standard movie; films like "Casablanca" get more but that's a distinctly unique and iconic film. This is a good movie, but not so famous as that. --AC9016 (talk) 03:08, 10 November 2020 (UTC)--AC9016 (talk) 03:08, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

  • In case anyone else has any take on this, I was wondering about the dialogue where Neal is recalling when Del said "I haven't been home in years." and the sentence echoes in Neal's mind a few times. Would that "echoing" be written just with a normal period, or with three afterward? A small detail and I'm probably being nitpicky, but I was unsure if there was a procedure or common practice for that. --AC9016 (talk) 16:07, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
