"...So spend your hard-earned money and buy a DVD compilation of Eyes on the Prize, or Harlan County USA, or watch Ways of Seeing on YouTube, or, heck, watch old episodes of Soap or Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. But please eject Batman from your psychic passenger seat..."
"...My father told me the more you learn about God, the further away from him you move, so I’m content to know nuthin’. So please forgive me if I don’t have any good answers for you about those things...."
"...No doubt, the entire mallpunk commercial flare-up is as much the direct catalyst for the recent flood of punk books as for the equivalent avalanche of archival CDs. The question is, how well can you pogo to these pages? Well, like the music, some books may be the Sex Pistols, some may be Eater. Falling somewhere in between has to be the most celebrated punk book of the season, Please Kill Me, by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain (Grove Press, $25 hard)..."

"...(Director: John Slattery, Screenwriters: John Slattery, Alex Metcalf) — When Mickey's stepson Leon is killed in a construction "accident," Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body. But when the boy's mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please, and a debt he can’t pay..."
"...Dear Editor, Please get serious. Despite having preached for decades about the importance of citizen involvement in government, the need for single-member districts in Austin, and the benefits of redistricting by an independent commission instead of elected officials, the Chronicle surprised many of its readers by coming out against the city charter amendment (Proposition 3) that embodied all of these worthwhile objectives [“Nov..."
"...We look forward to the fresh happy faces of the technocrats in our local establishments and to help us grow our neighborhood so we do not have to drive long distances to run errands. This is clearly a case of "Yes! In My Back Yard" syndrome, imagine that. Please back off and let us build the neighborhood that we desire...."
"...All too often I smell marijuana from a passing car. All too often I find a used syringe or broken crack pipe laying in the gutter. Please don't cut our public-safety budget..."
"...Dear Louis, I just finished the article about the "new" downtown project and was so sorry to see such an article [“My Migas, My City,” News, July 21]. Of course, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Just please, please people get it done right or Austin will be just like the sucky, uncool, soulless city of Houston..."
"...Note: Yes, citizen, I'm aware that reptiles don't have actual ears. Do please reach across the aisle and work with me here in metaphoristan, mmmkay?..."

"...They're in Irving, close to Dallas. Another element was that they provide the equipment that makes armor for Humvees and other military equipment, and they had letters from the Department of Defense saying please, finance this, we need to have our equipment in Iraq protected..."
"...Morrison's decision to speak out was in part a response, she said, to a recent online petition effort – www.draftLaura4mayor.com -- that as of Tuesday afternoon has garnered 96 signatures in support of its invocation, "Please run for Mayor of Austin," and praising Morrison's "love, commitment, experience, good judgment, hard work, and respect for Austin."..."
"...We have pressured pet stores around the city to stop selling the rabbits, we educate the public, and of course we spay and neuter.

"...And while the film is not perfect (more Wallace, Mac, and Piz, please) and by its very nature as a retread treads precariously on the edge of relevance (the class conflicts inherent to the TV show's storyline seemed to lapse into cozy middle-class resignation), it delivers the goods to Marshmallows new and old. The new movie is as loaded with planted insider seeds as the TV show...."
"...Bush to Rick Perry – because 'starting over' here means no action at all to address woefully inadequate health care access in the least insured state in the country. Please know that we will continue to support your efforts and, once the bill becomes law, to defeat any lawsuit by extreme elements in Texas who persist in fighting issues settled long ago in the Civil War."..."
"...My table companions instantly sense an outsider (reluctantly) invading their circle and hasten to brief me on the etiquette of radio interviewing. "Please," says one of them instantly, "try to remember that it's important for you to not respond to things said by the interviewee..."
"...It’s a Disaster makes David Cross’ new-to-the-group Glen the audience’s proxy. On only his third date with the group’s lone singleton Tracy (Stiles), Glen is the nice-guy outsider, scrambling to keep straight who’s who among the bickering, tense-shouldered hosts (Hayes and Miller), the free spirits making sexual innuendo over Sunday quiche (Boston and Brennan, another UT alum), and the forever-engaged, not-anywhere-near-to-getting-married couple (Ferrera – more, please! – and Grace)..."
"...5) YES, MORE PLEASE! Another newcomer – the recipe for huevos rancheros pushed this blog into the Top 10. Real know-how, clean design, and a genuine love of cooking positively radiate from this site..."
"...Quan, but this dark-edged little razor blade of a film is ultimately a satisfying comeback for Chan. More, please...."
"...AC: Man, this is guitar porn! More please...."
"...Since then, with more mainstream fare such as Carlito's Way, Casualties of War, and the muddled Mission: Impossible, De Palma has reached out to embrace a larger audience and seemingly sacrificed those traits that drew us to him in the first place: his singular vision, his clinical stylistics, and the palpable sense of dread that his best films engender. It comes as little surprise, then, that Mission to Mars falls prey to an overwhelming sense of a man trying to please everyone all the time..."
"...Please note the first item from this Grigson's clickbait listicle:..."
"...(A very special episode of The Three Stooges? "Larry, Moe, and Curly Join a Sleeper Cell!") Set in Sheffield, 150 miles north of London, Four Lions details the bumbling efforts of a group of radicalized Muslims who dream of becoming suicide bombers. Initially, it's difficult to place where each man sits on a graph that goes from gentle idiocy to incompetence to imbecility, but they soon come into focus: Faisal (Akhtar) is soft-spoken and maybe soft in the head; Waj (Novak) is dim but puppyishly eager to please; Barry (Lindsay), a white convert, is a bilious fanatic (you get that Allah is the afterthought to his appetite for destruction); and Hassan (Ali), a latecomer to the group, is a wannabe rapper just looking for a community..."
"...Sara Hickman, 36, first established herself as a singer-songwriter in Dallas before moving to Austin in the early Nineties. Her increasingly more frequent gigs please her myriad fans, passionate about Hickman's thoughtful, pop- and rock-edged compositions..."

"...Bar owners should have the right to offer the environment that best suits their clientele. To the voters, please honestly ask yourself this: “Am I one of these regulars? Is it because of me that this bar stays open? Am I part of the blood that keeps the heart of Austin nightlife pumping?” If “yes,” then please vote..."
"...Anwar plays Sonora as a spunky young girl who runs away from home to join the circus. There she meets cranky old Cliff Robertson, a Wild Bill type who runs the sideshow and with his son, Schifflin, a handsome young man who can't please his father, but does pretty well with horses and young girls..."
"...Franco has made a career out of playing characters similar to this genial Gen-X vulgarian (Pineapple Express, Spring Breakers, The Interview), but the gig is wearing thinner with each progressively cartoonish performance. When he’s in this mode, he’s like a big puppy dog, all too eager to please, even when the character is a dangerous dude..."
"...Woodley and Elgort look like real teens, delicately signaled in their body language: her lip-biting push-pull of awkwardness and pleasure when dealt a compliment; the way she lights up when receiving a text message, thinking she’s playing it cool when her parents can see her giddiness big as a billboard; and how he postures hard (he uses a prop cigarette, unlit, as a metaphor for staring down death, which sounds about right for an 18-year-old). Elgort’s performance is more mannered than Woodley’s open-faced, direct line to the heart, but it works: His speeches sometimes tumble out in a mush-mouthed rush, a little over-rehearsed, and that feels true to a teenager who is terribly sweet, eager to please, and ga-ga about a very special girl...."
"...You got the part." I said, "Okay, okay, but listen I'm booked to do Bye, Bye Birdie at the Melody Top Theater in Milwaukee during the time that I have to start shooting, and I've already signed the contract, and I'm gonna have to pay 5,000 dollars if I don't get out of it by such and such a date. So, could you please let me know by such and such a date," 'Cause you know, I was young; this was my money..."

"...The story follows Seth Winnick (3rd Rock From the Sun's Stewart), a successful television producer who falls for the radiant Chelsea (Wilson) after he spies her at a wedding. At first, it's all wine and roses and headboard-banging sex, but you know how it goes: She wants to move in, get married, have babies, and before you can say, “check, please,” she's turned into a screeching, six-headed harpy (albeit one with a nice rack)..."
"...Troy excites and alarms Bathsheba, is more plainly articulated here, and becomes a kind of conversation with her previous, girlish declaration that she’s only interested in a man who will tame her. When Troy nicks a curl of her hair with the tip of his sword, you can almost see the comic book-like bubble rise over her head: Sex! Danger! Yes, please!..."
"...When "Pretty Boy" Floyd (Tatum) is gunned down in the film's opening, he renounces the shorthand and reclaims his birth name as he burbles up blood; lyrically shot and performed, the scene foreshadows a thematic tension between the public and private persona, as well as a dozen more deaths to come, many at the same hand (or is it trigger finger?) as Floyd's – J. Edgar Hoover's rising star and yes-man, Melvin Purvis, played by Bale with the same ramrod cheerlessness that's dogged his Aughties work (somebody hire this guy to do a romantic comedy-as-cleanse, please)..."
"...18, 1969 issue, “Is he the most important black man in America?” The Boston concert is Brown at his best. There’s the unrivaled dance steps, the wrenching cries of “Please, please, please,” the showmanship and theatrics of the cape ceremony..."
"...Please tell me that New Orleans Saints cornerback Fred Thomas, who just last week I had hoped to return quickly from injury, didn’t allow Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson to torch him for six catches, 190 yards, and three touchdowns. Please follow that up by telling me that Saints running back Deuce McAllister didn’t carry the ball a measly 10 times for 40 yards in a 31-16 home loss..."

"...Could you film the show and put together a concert video for us?" The network would say, "Love to. That'll be X thousand dollars, please." They would then shoot the gig, edit the footage, and hand over the finished product to Almo..."
