New Clue

Hello Me Hearties,
I'd like to thank everyone that has participated in the current movie line contest. To refresh your memory, the line is:

"I was just inches away from a clean getaway".

Rather than add another line and give it away, I'm going to give you a clue about the movie itself (which may or may not give it away). If after receiving best guesses from all my major players and the prize is still not won, I will give another clue. Never fear, I won't leave you to wonder in confusion. This is supposed to be fun!

The next clue is: this movie won an academy award for best picture in the 1980's.

And don't worry, I'm sure you've all seen it. And if you haven't, you must!

Focus on the chocolate now. Let me hear your winning answers.

Congratulations Mom+Sis+Auntie on your winning entry for the movie line "I was just inches away from a clean getaway". It was uttered by Jack Nicholson in Terms of Endearment. For those of you who haven't seen this movie, it is required viewing as far as I'm concerned. I dare you not to cry. Personally, I love this movie so much because a lot of the interaction between Aurora and Emma mirrors the interaction between Trophy Wife (Aurora) and me (Emma).
Tim, I don't hold it against you that you haven't seen this movie, since it is technically a "girlie" movie, but you might surprise yourself and like it. It's got a lot of true life in the story, and just enough coolness with Jack Nicholson swaggering around to keep you interested.
Mamma, now that you know the answer, you remember seeing this movie, don't you? Such a great film.
Tune in, I'm posting another contest shortly. Love to all.
