Quote of the Day: Explain your title (and stop with the crying) edition

Posted on


Demimooreroblowe_l “Jules, you know…honey…this isn’t real. You know what it is? It’s St. Elmo’s Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies outta nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them. There was no fire. There wasn’t even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep ’em going when things got tough, just like you’re making up all of this…. We’re all going through this…. Hey, it’s our time on the edge.” — Billy (Rob Lowe), to Jules (Demi Moore), in St. Elmo’s Fire
