Quotable Quotes:

"When we see trouble on the horizon we can try to evacuate, or we can run toward the storm."

"I love children - roasted crispy on the outside and tender on the inside."

"I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it's literally going to cease to exist."

"I'm not that easy to insult, believe me, but cracks about people on movies who are there to pick up paychecks or actors who look like they phoned it in get me. People who write this stuff obviously have never been on the set of a movie from beginning to end. Just showing up somewhere every day for twelve to sixteen hours for three or four months should be enough to disqualify movie people from those cracks. The only thing about a movie that can be phoned in is a review." (IMDB)

"She is so in love with her priest right now that she just can.t stop flirting with him."

"We're reaching for death on the end of a candle We're trying for something that's already found us."

"He was a famous comedian, actor, and one of the most beloved and well-known figures in American culture. (V)"
