    No, not really. Ahnuld from True Lies is my favorite character of that sort.

    TNP has seen True Lies at least three times.

    No, probably twice, I suppose. A cute movie, I suppose, but not a favorite.

    TNP thinks Sneakers is a pretty terrific little "espionage"-type movie.

    It's OK, but I much prefer True Lies.

    TNP remembers the lengthy-instructions-on-how-to-open-a-locked-door gag from Sneakers.

    Not at all. I've seen the movie a few times, but that one isn't coming to mind.

    TNP doesn't care for Elvis (Presley), even ironically, although is very familiar with his œuvre. (Although admits the sound production and the production of his records in general were top-notch, as well as the musicianship).

    Well, I dunno, I can't call myself a fan, but I've got nothing against his music, and could probably even watch one of his movies if I was bored enough, especially if Anne-Margret was in it.

    TNP thinks maybe their life would have worked out better if Colonel Parker was running it.

    Very unlikely, and I'm sure I'd become resentful of him pretty quickly.

    The Sneakers door-opening gag is that
    Spoiler (mouseover to read):
    the Redford character comes to a locked door and is trying to decide how to get in. He speaks to the Poitier character on the phone for at least half a minute, saying "Uh huh" every few seconds (you only hear his side of the conversation). Finally he says, "OK, I'll try it." Then he just kicks the door in.


    TNP knows a real-life colonel other than me (I'm a Kentucky Colonel).

    Well I'll be shitting myself all week. I've been trying to get my KY pal (he's from there, got the degrees and whatver) to suck up and become a Kentucky Colonel. Goddamned. A real life KY colonel in our midst.

    No, I'm not sarcastic at all — I think it's excellent.


    TNP has close family who are military and/or would counsel them into the tradition.
