Sam Shakusky: “That sounds like poetry. Poems don’t always have to rhyme, you know. They’re just supposed to be creative.”

Dandelion

Here’s a dandelion for my 100th post. Taraxacum officinale (according to Wikipedia, anyway). I’m terrible at Latin. And remembering stuff.

Steve Zissou: “Who’s gonna tell us the Latin names of all the fishes and everything? You know I can’t remember all that s***. Please stop, Elanor! Elanor stop! Why are you leaving?”

Elanor Zissou: “I’m leaving because I don’t want to be a part of whatever is going to happen out there.”

Steve Zissou: “Nobody knows what’s going to happen. And then we film it. That’s the whole concept.”

Vladimir Wolodarsky: “That’s how we’ve always done it…”
