MEMORABLE REMARKS

  • I'd love to sign a book for you, but as you can see, I am... UPSIDE DOWN. [Legend]
  • Did you know President Grant is on a tour that takes him through Texas? [Abigail]
    We must have the same publicist. [Legend]
  • Twenty minutes later, my ears began to bleed on her pantalets. That seemed to get her attention. [Pratt]
  • Oh, please, nobody wants to read a melodrama about an aristocratic Southern woman who barely survives the burning of Atlanta. [Pratt]
  • It could change the course of human events. Possibly not. Right now it's delightfully useless. And we shall follow this useless research wherever it may take us. [Bartok]
  • I have never been discreet, but I can keep a secret. [Henrietta]
    Close enough. [Pratt]
  • There are just so many citizens, aren't there? One must set priorities. You can't listen to every idiot in the country. [Potter]
    No. Just wealthy idiots. [Pratt]
  • I don't trust a man who doesn't drink, and I need to trust you. [Grant]
    On that score, I'm the most trustworthy man alive. [Pratt]
  • She's definitely getting undressed. Gentlemen, we're just in time. [Pratt]
  • Oh, sure, sure, when all else fails, break out the old Legend wings and push him out of the balloon. [Legend]
  • Mr. Legend goes to Washington. [Bartok]
    No, I don't think so. I'll leave Washington to the professionals. [Legend]
    Yes, well, that'll be the ruin of Washington - too many professionals. [Grant]
  • You see, Legend's voice is right there inside you. [Bartok]
    The only voice I hear says, "I want a drink." [Pratt]
    No, it must be the other fellow, Pratt, talking. Ignore him. [Bartok]
    I can't. He's thirsty. [Pratt]
