MOVIE TALK

Quotable quotes from a few recent movies:

"What's new and exciting?" The usual greeting of tough-cop Emily Eden (Melanie Griffith) in "A Stranger Among Us.""Listen, babe, there's nobody bigger than Wayne Newton in this town - of course, I could be wrong." A Las Vegas tourist to his wife, correcting himself in midthought upon catching sight of a 112-foot baby in "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid."

"Well, guess he won't need me anymore. What does an actor want with a conscience, anyway?" Jiminy Cricket, resigning as Pinocchio's conscience when the puppet becomes an actor in "Pinocchio."

"It's like sliding down a banister - that turns into a razor blade." The best man, describing marriage to the groom (Alec Baldwin) on his wedding day in "Prelude to a Kiss."
