Almasy: [in his lover Katharine’s arms] I claim this shoulder blade — no, wait, I want – turn over — I want this, this [his finger at the base of her throat] — this place. I love this place, what’s it called? This is mine. I’m going to ask the King permission to call it the Almásy Bosporus.
Almásy: [to his colleague] Um, Maddox, that place – that place at the base of a woman’s throat, you know, the hollow, here. Does it have an official name?
Madox: For God’s sake, man, pull yourself together.
Madox: In case you’re still wondering [points to base of throat]. This is called a supersternal notch.
Do all women have a hollow at the base of the throat, I wonder? I rarely get close enough to find out. I guess most men have an Adam’s Apple of sorts.
Anyway. I looooooooove The English Patient – both the book and the film.
