Notable Quotes

The other night, I decided against being a productive member of society, so I parked it and watch a few re-runs of "Law and Order."

As a born and bred New Yorker, I can understand and appreciate the quaint phrases New Yorkers use to show respect and admiration for each other. In the first episode, Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) are dealing with a pompous wannabe novelist with a bad attitude. At one point, Green refers to the "novelist" as "F. Scott Fitz-stupid."

I almost fell off the sofa.

In the second episode, D.A. Branch (former US Senator Fred D. Thompson [far right-wing R, TN]) is complaining about "five Supreme Court justices subverting the will of the populace," by doing something relatively liberal. I, of course, was screaming at the set, "What about when five justices subverted the will of the populace by annointing george bush preznit, you stupid, frickin' MO-ron?!?"

The lovely yet talented Mrs 618 has blocked "Law and Order."

This morning, WOMC radio host (and Radio Hall of Famer) Dick Purtan -- who was the Detroit DJ in "Beverly Hills Cop II" -- was discussing "pimply-faced" 'N Sync perpetrator, alleged actor/singer and definite oxygen thief Justin Timberlake. Purtin said, "He looks like Chris Hansen* should walk into his kitchen."

Unfortunately, I was driving at the time. I almost parked in the ditch.

* For those who may not be as glued to the tube as Mrs 618 and I, Hansen hosts MSNBC Dateline's "To Catch A Predator," confronting and apprehending on-line pedophiles. If you have children at home, you owe it to yourself to watch this series.

  1. Justin Timberlake is the Shaun Cassisdy of the 00's. Except Shaun has talent.
