Rest of Your Life


All the seasons and the times of your days
All the nickels and the dimes of your days
Let the reason and the rhymes of your days
All begin and end with me

What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life
(Bergman/Bergman)

No Losing It


              .............. seems that Hitchcock is simply saying that utopia does not exist in real life. We may be able to imagine some kind of perfect situation for ourselves, but it can never be achieved in reality. There will always be something to throw off the equilibrium of things. In a sense we all suffer from vertigo, and as Midge says to Johnny ''there's no losing it''.

Won't Help You


The cigarettes you light, one after another, won't help you forget her.

Doubly a Lie


All truth is simple ....... is that not doubly a lie.
