Merry Christmas!

"John, look at me. You don’t have to die to keep the John Doe idea alive! Someone already died for that once! The first John Doe. And He’s kept that idea alive for nearly two thousand years. It was He who kept it alive in them —and He’ll go on keeping it alive for ever and always! For every John Doe movement these men kill, a new one will be born! That’s why those bells are ringing, John! They’re calling to us—not to give up—but to keep on fighting! To keep on pitching! Oh, don’t you see, darling? This is no time to give up!"

(My other Christmas Eve movie tradition: to watch Meet John Doe in my room while making wrapping presents at 2AM. This final scene comes up and The Stanwyck starts talking...and I get a bit of a tear in my eye.... AND THEN, the awesome James Gleason comes up and says: "There you are, Norton-- THE PEOPLE. Try and lick that." ...and I'm dead. ;-D)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your holiday is filled with awesomeness! :-)
