Thanks to that quote, I thought of some of my favorite YouTube clips that come from both "Alice In Wonderlands," and while I've seen both, I only really remember the live action one.

That said, this sequence is funny, but this is the meat of Alice meeting the Cheshire Cat that I love: http://youtu.be/lUnqbBgYZmI?t=2m7s

Alice is looking for the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat suggests The Mad Hatter and March Hare and tells her that they're mad. Alice says "But I don't want to go among mad people!"

Cheshire replies "Oh you can't help that... most everyone's mad here... you may have noticed that I'm not all there, myself (as he disappears)." Love that.

Also love both of these in the new one and how a father teachers her daughter something she will eventually teach a friend:

Father to Daughter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dz5pEagS8Qk
Alice to Hatter (after he's lost it): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWpWHGdjIhM

Basically, the latter asks the former if they've lost it, to which the former tells them, "I'm afraid so; you're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret: all the best people are."

Then there's the Steve Jobs classic "Think Different/Here's To The Crazy Ones": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rwsuXHA7RA

"Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs

While we're on the topic of "Crazy," Cee Lo Green's song of the same name fits this theme too (imagine that, using Cee Lo to talk about Christian concepts... hey, Relient K covered this song): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrbOR1nLkYU

"My heroes had the heart, to live their lives out on the limb. And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them." - Cee Lo

To one of my heroes... who's ordinary... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqWRaAF6_WY ("Hero" by Foo Fighters)
