Ms. Doubtfire Easter Egg - Carpe Diem

In the restaurant scene, Robin Williams (Ms. Doubtfire) drops her dentures into a glass of champagne. When the camera has a close-up of the glass and Williams is trying to get the dentures out with his fork, you can overhear him say "Carpe Dentum - Seize The Teeth!" - obviously a reference to "Carpe Diem - Seize The Day" his line made famous in his hit movie The Dead Poets Society.

a joke in a movie script is not an egg.

This is obviously NOT a reference to Dead Poet's Society. It's just a play on words. Carpe Diem is not from Dead Poet's Society. It's an age old saying, and is far too common to be said to have its origin in a movie.

I just watched it the other day and he said "Carpe Dentum"- You know like dentures?- Seize the teeth.

The reason why Robin Williams says "Norman Bates" is because he is dressed like a woman. If anyone had ever seen Alfred Hitchcock's movie, "Psycho", they would know that Norman dressed like his mother.

stillinawes comment is the very famouse poem the quote came from. Also, it is an egg and a hilarious one at that. The Dead Poets Society revolved around the phrase, sieze the day. What made it funny was because it was from tDPS. Otherwise it would be an annoying play on words joke like "why did the detective arrest the chicken? He suspected fowl play". If you haven't seen both movies don't comment on the authenticity of an egg. Sorry I went off on all of you but I am a serious fan of Robin Williams....good find.

Whatever our affliction and whatever the future holds for that affliction, we still need to sieze the day. A day spent grieving over our past, or our condition is just wasted. We need to enjoy this day in the best way we are capable. Tomorrow we may be better and we may be able to enjoy the day even more. Tomorrow may not come for some of us, how tragic it would be if we spent our last day on earth morning for previous days for which no amount of repentance can change one small piece. This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. —Psalm 118:24
