Misquoting people is another specialty of Ben’s. His butchering of famous movie quotes is especially hilarious, and one gem has been permanently woven into the fabric of our family culture. Once, with a sly grin, he said, “Wanna play with my toy?” I thought he might have something sexual in mind, but it turned out he thought he was quoting that line everyone says from Scarface. You know, at the end when Al Pacino (playing Tony Montana) picks up his crazy automatic weapon and says, “Say hello to my little friend!” That, in a nutshell, is how Ben’s brain works.
