Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Re-watched this gem of a film

Does anyone think Clementine's potatoes should have had a slightly bigger role, if not, perhaps a few more seconds on screen? They are brilliant. I have a list in my head of potatoes to make, dragon potato, Oscar Wilde potato, Sailor potato.

And of course the quote itself, which is stunningly sad:

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd;

-Eloisa to Abelard, Alexander Pope.
