but best of all some of the funniest dialogue ever….I have more than a couple of favorite lines from that movie but my favorite has to be Harvey Keitel’s “I’m Mr. Wolfe. I solve problems.” I love this line because I relate to it in so many ways and it ties right in to my ADDiva-ness where I tire easily of methodical planning and discussing and checking and re-checking but give me an issue, a puzzle, a wrinkle, a log-jam, a bottlenect, a problem, a fire to put out and I’m all over it. Sorting out messes energizes me.
Redundancy puts me to sleep, no, in fact, redundancy irritates me. Translated this means that if there are four people standing around presumably doing the work of two then I feel like I’m wasting my time and would rather be doing anything else – contemplating my navel, having a pedicure, taking a nap, translating the Bible into seven other languages none of which I know, etc.
But give me a situation with a little urgency and no one else willing to touch it with a 10 ft. pole and I’m all over it. I’m CJ. I fix things.
