# A quote in a program

Given the following bash program:

sleep 120
exit
echo "nothing"


What movie quote is this referencing?

For curiosity's sake, should we take this as a trick question, or pretend that the script wouldn't end after exit? :) – Khale_Kitha Mar 29 at 2:59
The script intentionally ends :3 – AMACB Mar 29 at 3:02
can't figure it out. Words I considered that might be included in the title: sleeping, waiting, 2 minutes, leaving, not saying a thing, without saying nothing – Ivo Beckers Mar 29 at 3:11
This is such a good one, thank you – question_asker Mar 29 at 11:40

Is it

Wait a minute, wait a minute - you ain't heard nothin' yet... From The Jazz Singer (1927)

Reason

sleep 120 - waiting a minute twice, then it's exiting the program before 'nothing' is outputted

-
If true, would be better with two lines of sleep 60. – Devsman Mar 29 at 18:29
@Devsman or even better two lines of "sleep 1m" although that might make it too easy. – DasBeasto Mar 29 at 19:17

I believe it's

"If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all" from Bambi

Reason:

Sleep 120 gives you time to think of something nice to say. AS you couldn't, you don't say nothing, because the script has exited before you can say nothing

-

It is referencing to

Alfred Hitchcock - The Birds

Reason

It lasts 120 minutes and has no ending credits

But I might be missing something since I can only figure out a movie title, not really a quote from this movie.

Hahaha nice explanation, it sounds more like a punchline – Pickle Mar 29 at 14:46
