It’s a scenario almost everyone has faced: You’re debating with a friend about a quote from a movie, and nobody can seem to remember what the specific words in the quote actually were. You could commence a fruitless search on Google or YouTube, or go through the hassle of getting ahold of the film itself and watching out for the specific scene. Or, if you know about MovieClips, you could simply type in a term and watch the scene in question from your home computer in a matter of seconds. It’s that easy.
