It's Hello, Whiskey!
16 June 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The line is "What would you say to another drop of whiskey?" "Hello, whiskey!" This movie was awesome. We watched it in our health class in 12th grade to discuss aging, and my friends and I still quote lines from the movie. Mr. Cronyn passed away today, and I will always remember him as this great character.
