    Only for first time viewings. For instance, I'm 99% sure that The Apartment is a 10/10, but I'm going to watch it again at least once before I officially induct it into my Hall of Fame. That's serious business, you know.

    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on
