      Nice to see someone else praising the taxi driver from Pulp Fiction, she never gets the attention she deserves. Butch should have gone with her - she'd never forget his watch.

      I'm thinking 'Danny', from Withnail and I. He's only got 2 scenes and they're both belters.

      In the background for Full Metal Jacket there is a Poster of a grinning bloke next to a can of beer. I used to live in Jamaica and that face was all over the place selling Cheese. "I just love that cheese" I think it went.

      Porkins is one of my favorite! Mostly for that fact that he is indeed Porky Porkins! And I totally forgot about Christopher Walken in Mouse Hunt. So good!

      I do agree with everyone about Danny in Withnail & I. His scenes ARE 2 of the most memorable. Some quotes: "I don't advise a haircut, man. All hairdressers are in the employment of the government. Hairs are your aerials. They pick up signals from the cosmos, and transmit them directly into the brain. This is the reason bald-headed men are uptight." "Don't get uptight with me, man. Because if you do, I'll have to give you a dose of medicine. And if I spike you, you'll know you've been spoken to."
