Article Excerpt:

Instant gratification takes too long."

Meryl Streep popularized that brilliant one-liner in the essential showbiz comedyPostcards from the Edge(1990)but the line pre-dates the film,having emerged from the actress/writer Carrie Fisher's sharp pen (or was it tongue?) some time earlier.The line is so good it ended up on t-shirts.Fisher's best lines in print (multiple books,my personal favorite being "Surrender the Pink") or on the screen (Postcards from the Edgeplus much script-doctoring) often sound exactly like things she may have uttered spontaneously in real lifefirstwith that unmistakably frank,darting,and mischievous wit.The showbiz icon passed away this morning after a heart attack aboard a plane this past Friday but her work and her influence will live on.

The irony of her delicious and beloved quip above isn't hard to miss...
