"Give me an occupation or I shall go mad!"
This is Cornflower's new favorite saying. (Virtual dark chocolate to anyone who guesses what movie it is from.) This quote goes well with one of her old favorite original lines: "But, Mommy, I haven't got any thoughts!"
Update: Queen Shenaynay guessed-- it was Colonel Brandon from Sense and Sensibility. And the more accurate quote, as she pointed out, is, "Give me an occupation or I shall run mad!" It seems Cornflower had it right originally, but then her sisters corrected her incorrectly.
