I have been waiting like 7 or 8 years to see that Beach Boys movie again. I loved it when it was on the first time. I hope it's as good as I remember it, though I did like of stupid things when I was 19-20 years old...like Wayne's World 2!

I'll really miss it when you premiere your next big name concert.

Yes kmeisenbach, we really need somebody to step up the negotiations with Comcast. Tell Mark that I'd even consider rooting for the Mavs if they reach the finals again if he gets the HDNet's on Comcast soon

Looking forward to this, as always. Agreed that HDNET Movies is the best HD channel on DirecTV.


One request: Would it be possible to adjust the formatting of the HDNM posts a tad, to highlight the titles in a different color? Little easier on the eyes, in terms of picking out the titles from all of the award information.

this might be a HDNet question than a HDNet Movies one, but did I read right, that last year HDNet showed the Oscar nominated shorts, will this happen again for this years nominations? and more specifically when - March?

In the most memorable classic scene in a roadside diner on his way home, he is again aggravated and exasperated by meaningless rules. A live-by-the-rules waitress (Lorna Thayer) stubbornly refuses to serve him a plain omelette (with tomatoes instead of potatoes), a cup of coffee and a side order of wheat toast, because she dryly explains: "No substitutions":


Dupea: I'd like a plain omelette, no potatoes, tomatoes instead, a cup of coffee, and wheat toast.

Waitress: (She points to the menu) No substitutions.

Dupea: What do you mean? You don't have any tomatoes?

Waitress: Only what's on the menu. You can have a number two - a plain omelette. It comes with cottage fries and rolls.

Dupea: Yeah, I know what it comes with. But it's not what I want.

Waitress: Well, I'll come back when you make up your mind.

Dupea: Wait a minute. I have made up my mind. I'd like a plain omelette, no potatoes on the plate, a cup of coffee, and a side order of wheat toast.

Waitress: I'm sorry, we don't have any side orders of toast...an English muffin or a coffee roll.

Dupea: What do you mean you don't make side orders of toast? You make sandwiches, don't you?

Waitress: Would you like to talk to the manager?

Dupea: ...You've got bread and a toaster of some kind?

Waitress: I don't make the rules.

Dupea: OK, I'll make it as easy for you as I can. I'd like an omelette, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.

Waitress: A number two, chicken sal san, hold the butter, the lettuce and the mayonnaise. And a cup of coffee. Anything else?

Dupea: Yeah. Now all you have to do is hold the chicken, bring me the toast, give me a check for the chicken salad sandwich, and you haven't broken any rules.

Waitress (spitefully): You want me to hold the chicken, huh?

Dupea: I want you to hold it between your knees.

Waitress (turning and telling him to look at the sign that says, "No Substitutions") Do you see that sign, sir? Yes, you'll all have to leave. I'm not taking any more of your smartness and sarcasm.

Dupea: You see this sign? (He sweeps all the water glasses and menus off the table.)
