Quotes of the Day for 9 March 2002 – Revenge

Larkin and I went to see The Count of Monte Cristo last night, and though this presentation changes much of the story (and adds a gratuitous happy ending) it is a still a great story well told. What can you expect in two hours and a quarter? Well, given the original story you can expect revenge, and the next day you can expect revenge in your quotes.
