History Fact

The Bloody Mary Wasn't Always Called a Bloody Mary

Movie/TV Quote

"Would it be all right if I showed the children the whoring bed?"

Nymphomaniac Part I (2014)

Danish bad-boy director Lars von Trier is not for everyone, and his two-part sex addiction epic Nymphomaniac is definitely not for everyone, but for those who dig his t-t-t-tWiStEd filmography, Nymphomaniac Part I contains the single greatest, most bizarre, most shocking line reading of all his movies. It occurs when Mrs. H (Uma Thurman, god tier) decides to bring herself and her children to visit her unfaithful husband and the young girl (the movie's protagonist, played here by Stacy Martin) he's sleeping with, touring around her apartment and commenting on all of her possessions. The whole exercise is designed to show her husband how his infidelity has ruined the lives of his family -- an extremely, extremely, painfully awkward setup for a scene -- and when she finally gets to the "whoring bed" line, your whole brain will just be full of exclamation points and nothing else.
