First sentence could be "The Green Mile", but I don't immediately recognize the second sentence as being from that movie.

Very good! You're up.

Trivia: The line I posted was from the original "Dracula" (1931), but it was altered slightly and reused in "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992) by adding "sweet" before "music".

b): *Why* does everyone always assume that? What am I doing? Am I harvesting farts? How much can I learn from an ass?
