    Chinatown... Look. I do matrimonial work. It's my métier. When a wife tells me that she's happy that her husband is cheating on her, it runs contrary to my experience.

    A Few Good Men. His improvised script enhanced the movie experience and revealed his acting genius.

    As a former aspiring writer and English major As Good As It Gets has some of the most quotable lines that I love.

    “Heartburn” - so many scenes I think are classic, dry Nicholson.

    When he says to Meryl Streep, “I don’t want my pork chops cooked any other way.” Or when he is always saying he’s going out to buy socks, but he’s really having an affair.

    “The Shining” is a close second for me for the typewriter scene when he tells Shelley Duvall to get the fuck out when she hears him working.

    Yeah, I know... which is exactly my point. He steals the show on what was clearly an average popcorn seller.
