Harold: “I love you.” Maude: “Oh Harold, that’s wonderful. Go and love some more.”

For some reason this movie makes me think of being a kid in the cold northwest and people wearing those weird quilted nylon jackets, and my parents old high school year books, and the smell of garage sales. But what a lovely tale... I would like to watching Harold & Maude right now and drink hot chocolate. But I will have to settle for some easy mac and youtube clips...since my vcr isn't hooked up yet. Mmm, vcr.

(this scene with his mother is the best... <3

"I have here Harold, the forms sent out by the National Computer Dating Service. They screen out the fat and the ugly, so it is obviously a firm of high standards. First, here is the personality interview, which you are to fill out and return. Now then are you ready, Harold? Here is the first question. Are you uncomfortable meeting new people?

Yes indeed, absolutely yes. Did you enjoy life as a child? Yes, you were a wonderful baby Harold. Do you think the sexual revolution has gone too far? It certainly has.
