    "It doesn't DO anything. That's the beauty of it."

    It's from "The Princess Bride". The guy who says the quote is Wallace Shawn who played "Vizzini" (the short Sicillian).

    It took me about an hour to remember that. Special thanks to the wife for the assist. <_<
    I used to believe in Santa until I realised he&#39;s just a fat guy in a red suit who breaks into houses.

    There&#39;s confirmation from a few people that this is where it comes from...
    I could have sworn it was from a movie though

    Question..:
    "What does it do?"
    "It doesn&#39;t DO anything. That&#39;s the beauty of it!"
    It&#39;s from The Simpsons in the episode where Homer&#39;s half brother (I think, maybe step brother) Herb Powell is explaining his invention. He is talking about the &#39;drinking&#39; bird and Homer asks, "What does it do?"

    Thank you for answering that question for our readers. Judith Egerton

    I cant help. But since we're talking movie quotes, this one has been bugging me for more than a year now:

    (drunk guy)"I'm gonna take a walk. It's a nice night."

    Anyone know?
