Since you're on to one-liners, I awoke wide-eyed at 0400 today and watched "Tea House of the August Moon" on TCM. Fabulous farce full of delight; Glenn Ford, Brando, Eddie Albert, and an all-star cast.

The closing line delivered by Brando, “Little story now concluded. But history of world unfinished. Lovely ladies, kind gentlemen, go home to ponder. What was true at beginning remains true. Pain make man think, thought make man wise, and wisdom make life endurable. So, may August moon bring gentle sleep. Sayonara.”

You could use almost every other thing out of Trump's mouth this season. My favorite though so far is from the Domino's Pizza episode and the follow up. He suggests a meatball pizza, then repeats that it's a good idea when he hears the teams are using it, then says how Domino's is actually planning to use it.

Then, Whoops!, Domino's isn't using it, they're doing Cheeseburger instead, so in the next episode, he berates the team for not doing market research, saying: "If you'd actually done some market research, you'd have found out that people don't want meatball pizza. They want cheeseburger pizza." And of course, he's appearing in a commercial where he appears to come up with the idea for the cheeseburger pizza.

I was tired of the cocksucker that is the donald BEFORE he cheated everyone out of hundreds of millions in New Jersey. He is what Mike Milken called a "monster", i.e. he is too big to say no to, and he has no scruples. So, if you get in a business deal with him, you're fucked.

Is it just me or does that Trump quote remind you of the scene in A Clockwork Orange (the film, not the novel) when the Nazi-looking fellow asks Alex whether he "is or has ever been a homosexual?"

it reminds me of that scene in stripes, too. Where the recuiter asks bill murray and harold ramis the same question and bill says: "you mean like flaming?" then ramis says "no we aren't, but we ARE willing to learn."
