You wouldn't do me a favor and advertise Lit Nerd Central out the yahtzee, would you?

Harvey is simply my all-time favorite movie. I've never known anyone else to ever list it as a fav. Goose bumps and a spiritual connect...

Hey Rob! Great to hear from you.

Yeah, it's about time for a re-watch of Harvey for me.

"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. And you may quote me."

-Elwood P. Dowd
