The Perfect Line.

There is a scene in the movie Buffalo 66, written, directed and starring Vincent Gallo, when he returns to meet his parents. Gallo’s, character Billy, was wrongfully imprisoned due to his father losing money on a football match (The Buffalo Bills).

He finally meets his parents with his girlfriend, Christina Ricci, and Billy’s mom (Anjelica Houston) says one of my favourite lines in the history of filmmaking, to Billy’s father: “Get the Billy picture.”

The whole movie wrapped up in four words.

The perfect line.
