Scandalous - it was not nominated for Best Picture! I still prefer the last few episodes of the TV show - some were outright disturbing.

That Frodis Caper episode...darned freaky.

I think Head is a masterpiece, and I've never even done acid.

Although my seminal image would probably have to include Teri Garr.

That was my fave! Rip was so freaky!

The best line of the film came from Frank Zappa and for the life of me, I can't remember it now, but I know I was on the floor laughing when he did it.

If I'm not mistaken, it's probably the first thing he says to Davy Jones after Jones' rendition of Harry Nilsson's "Daddy's Song":

"That song was pretty White."

Though I think Jones' line thereafter ("So am I, what can I tellya"), is just as good.

'HEAD' ...man, what can i say? one of my favorite films. i loved it the first time i saw it . brilliant. melancholy. fantastic music. it moves at a good pace, and manages to balance the fantastic with the satirical. and the Monkees prove to be convincing actors. definitely on my 'desert island' list.
