The Retroactive 1st Annual Celebration of the Wit and Wisdom of the Good Mister Bob Hoskins

In loving honor of the man born an atheist turned agnostic, we here at MINE would like to honor the ever swelling romance that is Bob Hoskins.  As of this September, and promptly every succeeding September forthwith that still finds a pulse within this blog, we shall do our utmost to honor the venerable thespian himself. 

To show our appreciation for the man, as well as the enigma, we have congregated a list of 11 Bob Hoskins Character Quotes.  The list has been sorted in an order for climactic tension.

Relish the man, and discover the mystery!

[addressing a roomful of Soviet political officers] My name... is Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev. I've come to take things in hand here. This city... is not Kursk, nor is it Kiev, nor Minsk. This city... is Stalingrad. *Stalingrad*! This city bears the name of the Boss. It's more than a city, it's a symbol. If the Germans... capture this city... the entire country will collapse. Now... I want our boys to raise their heads. I want them to act like they have *balls*! I want them to stop shitting their pants! That's your job. As political officers... I'm counting on you.
