Movie/TV Quote

"I have such doubts!"


Doubt (2008)


There's a specific kind of endorphin rush you get when one of the characters in a movie says the TITLE of the movie IN the movie. In Doubt, this happens at least three times, maybe 10, maybe 100, starting with the first scene. But it's the last scene, the fraught, melodramatic conclusion, that contains its single best line, whispered with great feeling by Meryl Streep. It comes after Meryl and Amy Adams oust a priest from their school who they think has been abusing young boys, but no one ever saw any actual proof, so there's still a tiny chance, in Meryl's character's mind, that he never did anything. But that's not important. You don't even need to have seen the movie to know how to wield this line in any social situation that requires an appropriately distressed Streep impression.
