Well yes, sometimes.

There's a scene/quote, probably in a movie but maybe in a TV show, that I know I've seen a pile of times but can't place it. Guy asks a question then answers it with "the answer to that is 'yes, sometimes.'" Any ideas? [more inside]

She seems cool, but she doesn't even listen to Bauhaus.

What is this quote from (filter)!?!?!? "She seems cool, but she doesn't even listen to Bauhaus." I have tried and tried to find the origin and I have failed miserably. I heard it while listening to 1st Wave on Sirius XM. I'm assuming it's from a movie. There is one person on twitter who used the quote, but she has failed to respond to my plea. Where MeFites? Where?

Looking for a specific Tarantino quote

Quentin Tarantino, in an interview, said something along the lines of, "The medium that I work in is the audience's emotions." I think that the interview was relatively recent, either about Inglourious Basterds or Django, and it may even have been referenced on Metafilter, but now that I'm looking for it, I can't find it. So, did he actually say something to this effect? If yes, where did he say it and what was the actual statement?

Benny & Joon-filter: "Sit down, son. You're making me nervous."

In the movie Benny & Joon, Julianne Moore as Ruthie says, "Sit down, son. You're making me nervous." Is that line from another movie? The way she says it sounds like something Humphrey Bogart might say.
