Stupid Zebra


I think this is one of the most charming movies... It's a story about being able to tell your own story and the magic of believing in something larger than yourself. Go see it!  


As for the title, you just need to see it. 

I'm a little speechless.  Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Clip


Mr. Edward Magorium: [to Molly, about dying] When King Lear dies in Act V, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He's written "He dies." That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is "He dies." It takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with "He dies." And yet every time I read those two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it's only natural to be sad, but not because of the words "He dies." but because of the life we saw prior to the words. 
[pause, walks over to Molly
Mr. Edward Magorium: I've lived all five of my acts, Mahoney, and I am not asking you to be happy that I must go. I'm only asking that you turn the page, continue reading... and let the next story begin. And if anyone asks what became of me, you relate my life in all its wonder, and end it with a simple and modest "He died." 
Molly Mahoney: [starting to sob] I love you. 
Mr. Edward Magorium: I love you, too. 
[picks Molly up, sighs heavily
Mr. Edward Magorium: Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.
