Got milkshake?

There's a catchphrase born every season: "I see dead people," "I wish I knew how to quit you." This year's surprising entry comes from the lightly seen "There Will Be Blood": "I drink your milkshake!" Daniel Plainview's threatening words have spawned a music video and a website (www.idrinkyourmilkshake.com) that's become a forum for discussing all things "Blood." Director Paul Thomas Anderson expresses surprise at the phrase's popularity and reveals it has its genesis in an old and esoteric source: transcripts from 1924 congressional hearings into the Teapot Dome scandal.
