Trying to find a quote from Gone with the Wind

I'm trying to find an excerpt/quote from Gone with the Wind (the movie). Someone (I think Rhett but I'm not sure) is criticizing Ashley (to his face? behind his back? can't remember) for being unfair to both Scarlett and Melanie. I thought it was along the lines of Ashley being too weak to either love her properly or give her up properly. Help? [more inside]

SourceThatQuote Filter: Give an @sshole a hard time?

(Apologies for the vulgarity) I often find myself gravitating to the phrase "what's the point of life if not to give an asshole a hard time?" I really think this is a loose adaptation from a movie, but maybe I'm really the asshole. Rudimentary googling produces no answer. Anyone know the real quote and source? No probing analysis of my psyche or job necessary.

the world ain't what it used to be

Help-me-remember-this-bad-movie-filter: There was a movie, perhaps 15+ years ago, that was about a orchestra violinist who lost his job and/or had some kind of car trouble that stranded him in a very small town. Hilarity (at least the attempt at hilarity ensues). The only thing that makes this movie memorable to me at all is an exchange between him and one of the residents, I think perhaps the tow truck driver. [more inside]

What TV show or movie is this quote from?

I am racking my brain over this one. Both Google and IMDB are failing me. In what movie or TV show does a character say the following quote (might not be the exact words): "Can you speak a little louder, only this time into my LAPEL?" See, the character is wearing a wire, and he's not very bright. Help me figure this one out!
