Snake Plisken....I thought you were Dead!
I love the 'I thought you were dead' line. Yes, it has come up in films/ plays/ books before and it surely will in the future but for me it has always been a Snake Plisken line. The lines I get are ;
'Fatman...are you still working at the Amethyst?'
-from people I haven't seen in a few years and have since graduated/ got married/ own houses/ have kids...who now drink at the Amethyst.
'Fatman...have you got more grey hairs?'
-I get this from practically everyone.
'Fatman...are you still single?'
-usually at those uncomfortable family gatherings.
Maybe if I change jobs, dye my hair and get a girlfriend people would have the decency to think that I was dead,
