Nothing is so foolish, they say, as for a man to stand for office and woo the crowd to win its vote, buy its support with presents, court the applause of all those fools and feel self-satisfied when they cry their approval, and then in his hour of triumph to be carried round like an effigy for the public to stare at, and end up cast in bronze to stand in the market place.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment. Such attraction fades quickly - it cannot compete in the market of leisure pursuits, incorporating as it increasingly does various forms of religious titillation.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]

Stephen Underschaft:
I'm sorry sir that you force me to forget the respect due to you as my father. I'm an Englishman, I will not hear the government of my country insulted!

Andrew Underschaft:
The government of your country! I am the government of your country! I and Lazarus. Do you suppose that you and half a dozen amateurs like you, sitting in a row in that foolish gavel shop, can govern a country like England? Be off with you my boy, and play with your historic parties, and leading articles, and burning questions, and the rest of your toys. And in return, you shall have the support and applause of my newspapers, and the delight of imagining that you're a great statesman.

Sergeant Hulka:
Okay, Mr. Push-ups, let's hear your story.

John Winger:
Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to guys like you. I mean, it's not just the uniform. It's the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination.

[points to the soldier next to him]

John Winger:
Lee Harvey, you are a madman. When you stole that cow, and your friend tried to make it with the cow. I want to party with you, cowboy. If the two of us together, forget it.

Eric's Brother:
Go Jack! Go get them!

I got it, Eric, I'm cool... As we come to the end of our school years, we find ourselves remembering the good times, and trying to forget the bad ties. And as we start to look ahead, we start to worry. We think "What am I going to do? Where am I going to be in ten years?" But I say to you, "Hey, look at me!" Please, don't worry so much. Because when you get right down to it, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting, like a shooting star in the sky. Whenever you see a shooting star light up the sky with its brilliance, think of me, and try to make each and every moment of our lives as spectacular as possible. I know I did. I made it, Mom. I'm a grown-up.

Jimmy Kimmel, everyone. He's fat and has no charisma. Watch your back, Danny Aiello.

Sarah Silverman:
It's so good to be here. Drew Carey is here and I love him. He was so nice to me backstage, until he found out I wasn't a hooker.

Sarah Silverman:
You know I can't believe Alan King is such a legend, and he's here, and a nursing home in Florida just called. The last person who thinks you're funny just died. Is he laughing?

Sarah Silverman:
Dick Gregory. Oh my gosh, he deserves a round of applause just for being so old for his race. You know, is he the guy from the rice or the cookies? I never remember, but I know he's famous.

Sarah Silverman:
But this is about Hugh Hefner - a living legend, and, uh, look at your girlfriends - so beautiful. When are you going get serious? You know one day you might want one of them changing diapers. I mean if it gets too hard to do it yourself. Look at the smile on his face. He doesn't know where he is.

Hugh M. Hefner:
But he's happy...

Sarah Silverman:
Let's all talk about the whore- - the bunnies. No, bunnies aren't whores. They're paid monthly.

Sarah Silverman:
I think they should be role models in today's society, and I'm serious, especially for girls. If only for the fact that they wax their assholes. They deserve the Purple Heart for that. The Purple Asshole. I don't have the guts to do it. The closest I've ever come to waxing my asshole is once I got it washed and styled, but that doesn't hurt. Minus the curlers. Thank you! Happy birthday, Hef!
