Everybody knows there is no fineness or accuracy of suppression; if you hold down one thing, you hold down the adjoining.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest felony in the news business today is to be behind, or to miss a big story. So speed and quantity substitute for thoroughness and quality, for accuracy and context. The pressure to compete, the fear somebody else will make the splash first, creates a frenzied environment in which a blizzard of information is presented and serious questions may not be raised.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Franz Ebbing:
You realize you will never get out of here. Every entrance is guarded.



Alfred "Gloves" Donahue:
Aaah, don't try that line on me, Jack. This is Broadway, not Berlin!



Franz Ebbing:
It's a great pity, Mr. Donahue, that you and I should oppose each other. We have so much in common.



Alfred "Gloves" Donahue:
Yeah? How's that?



Franz Ebbing:
You are a man of action. You take what you want, and so do we. You have no respect for democracy - neither do we. It's clear we should be allies.



Alfred "Gloves" Donahue:
It's clear you are screwy. I've been a refistered Democrat ever since I could vote. I may not be Model Citizen Number One, but I pay my taxes, wait for traffic lights, and buy 24 tickets to the Policeman's Ball. Brother, don't get me mixed up in no league that rubs out innocent bakers and...


[Shoots an alarm buzzer thar Ebbing was about to push]



Franz Ebbing:
[Taken aback by the accuracy of the shot] Excellent! Did you learn that in one of your gang wars?



Alfred "Gloves" Donahue:
No, that's a little trick I picked up in Benny's Shootin' Gallery in Coney Island, and if you don't quit stallin', I'll show you some other tricks I learned in Brooklyn.

[Scientist Sir John Kelly speaks to quell public fears on TV, watched by journalists in a pub:]



Sir John Kelly:
When one considers the Moon is 240,000 miles away and the Sun ninety-three million, it is an extraordinary thing that astronomers can tell with such a degree of accuracy what their movements will be many years ahead.



Bill Maguire:
Now, what does that mean?



Peter Stenning:
It means he doesn't know what it's all about.

State Trooper:
What the hell are you driving here?



Del:
We had a small fire last night, but we caught it in the nick of time.



State Trooper:
Do you have any idea how fast you were going?



Del:
Funny enough, I was just talking to my friend about that. Our speedometer has melted and as a result it's very hard to see with any degree of accuracy exactly how fast we were going.

Elliott Blake:
The third card after a wavy line is always false. How many times have we been through this?



Dr. Paula Hall:
I'm sorry, Elliott. I - I tried.



Elliott Blake:
'Try' to understand; there's a precision to all this, and it starts with the premise that you will lose your institute unless you please the military and Mr. Harrow. Do you think you pleased them, Paula?



Dr. Paula Hall:
No, not yet.



Elliott Blake:
Not yet, because you gave them 74% accuracy when you and I agreed to set a level of 86%.



Dr. Paula Hall:
Right! We'll rehearse it...


[picks up ESP cards]



Dr. Paula Hall:
again. The first answer after the square is always true, unless there's an intervening circle, and the second answer after a wavy line is always false, unless that wavy line itself is false... or is it true?


[throws cards at Elliott]



Dr. Paula Hall:
God, I don't know anymore! So much for our scientific study of extrasensory perception.

Mike McDermott:
In "Confessions of a Winning Poker Player," Jack King said, "Few players recall big pots they have won, strange as it seems, but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career." It seems true to me, cause walking in here, I can hardly remember how I built my bankroll, but I can't stop thinking of how I lost it.

Cpl. Donald Hoobler:
Down he goes, right out of his saddle like a sack of potatoes. Outstanding accuracy on my part if I do say so myself.



Lipton:
But you do.



Cpl. Donald Hoobler:
Which I do. Hell, Shifty, I think maybe I could've even given you a run for your money.



SSgt. Darrel 'Shifty' Powers:

Lord Morton:
Mr. Harrison, please step forward.


[reads]



Lord Morton:
"It is the finding of this Board that the watch or timepiece created by John and William Harrison did keep correct time within the greatest accuracy required by the Act of Queen Anne as drawn up by Parliament 51 years ago."


[applause]



William Harrison:
Milord, may I have a copy of those to show my father? He has waited a long time to hear your Lordship's kind words.



Lord Morton:
In good time, Mr. Harrison. Astronomer Royal, would you be kind enough to read the fifth paragraph of the Act?



Reverend Nevil Maskelyne:
My lord.


[reads]



Reverend Nevil Maskelyne:
"And be it further enacted by the Authority aforesaid, that as soon as such Method for the Discovery of the said Longitude shall have been tried and found practicable and useful at Sea..."



Lord Morton:
Thank you. "Practicable and useful": those are the words I wish to draw to your attention. We accept the usefulness of the watch, but is it practicable? Mr. Harrison himself has never permitted this committee to examine the workings of his timepiece; I suggest to you that is because he himself has doubt about the practical use of his invention.



William Harrison:
Milords, you must understand that my father has sought to protect his work from those who might steal his inventions. But if this board requires it, we shall submit detailed drawings of the workings of the watch, when he has received his prize.



Lord Morton:
Mr. Harrison, this Board does not accept restrictions placed upon its work as prescribed by Parliament! *Here* are the conditions required for fulfilment of the terms of the Act!



Reverend Nevil Maskelyne:
[reading] "First, your father must, in person, take the watch apart and explain the working of every detail to the complete satisfaction of such persons as this Board shall appoint. This shall include any experimental observations they may require. Secondly, he shall make, or cause to be made under his sole direction, two further watches of the same design, to demonstrate the practicality of their construction. And thirdly, these new watches shall be subjected to such test or tests as this Board shall require, to ascertain their usefulness under the terms of the Act." Then, and only then, will he receive his prize.



William Harrison:
Milord, my father is sick and he's 73 years old.



Lord Morton:
He has until Thursday to accept the conditions -- which, I must inform you, have been submitted to Parliament and will form part of a new amendment to this Bill.
