Will you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?

"I'll bet you say that to all the boys."

(Fill in the rest. Anyone who lived in Miami in the Eighties will know what I am talking about.)

I'd forgotten how much I hate that film.

Noes! It is the bestest!

The poetry opening was to "You took the words right out of my mouth" not Paradise.
Sorry, somewhat of a Meatloaf geek.

I guess you're not from Miami.

Explanation: back in the 80s it was a tradition at the (now closed) Grove Art Cinema to show three videos before their weekend midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show: The J. Geils Band's "Love Stinks," Tim Curry's "Paradise Garage," and Meatloaf's "Paradise By the Dashboard Light" with the "Hot Summer Night" intro spliced onto the beginning. So everyone who'd been a regular (like, alas, me, though I didn't do the costumes or throw rice or any of that nonsense) at the Rocky showing would know what I was talking about.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
