It puts the bug repellent on its skin, or else it turns into a giant spider

Today I watched Infestation, a horror/sci-fi comedy about giant insects from outer space that is funny and gory and just really really good, but the point I'd like to make today is this:

"You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well-scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition has given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desperately to shed? Pure West Virginia. What's your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamp? You know how quickly the boys found you … all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars … while you could only dream of getting out … getting anywhere … getting all the way to the FBI."

Best. Pick-up line. EVER.

And I'd definitely memorize a bunch of classic movie quotes for Brooke Nevin

Update: see the foolproof pick-up line comic strip inspired by this post here!
