Skimming the 5,000: 201 - 300

From The 5000 Question Survey 2.0 part 5 and part 6:

215. What is your favorite line from a movie?
218. What is one phrase people say that irritates you?
240. What is your favorite line from a song?
292. What is one thing you can't do?
299. What would make you a stronger person?

215. In Hannah and Her Sisters, the Woody Allen character, Mickey, breaks the news to his Jewish parents that he is converting to Catholicism. His distraught mother shuts herself in the bathroom. His father busies himself in the kitchen. Mickey agonises. Is there life after death? Why is there so much evil in the world? Why, for instance, were there Nazis? His mother yells for his father to tell him.
MAX (from the kitchen): How the hell do I know why there were Nazis? I don’t know how the can opener works.
218. Maybe just maybe, at this point in time, at the end of the day, it's all up for grabs. Mate.
240. "Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire / Couldn’t conquer the blue sky"
- from "Weather With You" (N. Finn/T. Finn) Crowded House
292. Maths.

299. Optimism.
