Such reproductions may not interest the reader; but after all, this is my autobiography, not his; he is under no obligation to read further in it; he was under none to begin.

Sometimes I feel an obligation to be accessible as a personality, but for me the driving force since the beginning has always been good work, taking risks, trying new things. If the door opens, go through it. Always go forwards.More [04/28/2006 12:04:00]
At the end of the day, if you are talking about a blatant fraud, registration is not gong to prevent it. What it does do is put (managers) on the map. Investment advisers are subject to regular inspections of their internal controls. So by registering, they do have an obligation to make sure their internal controls are much more solid than they would be if they were not registered. It doesn't prevent outright fraud, but it does add a deterrent.More [05/18/2006 12:05:00]

“We're so hung up on this notion that we have some obligation to help the struggling black man, you know. Cut him some slack until he can overcome these historical injustices. It's crap.

Sam: What's in the case?
Deirdre: That's isn't necessary.
Sam: Is it heavy, is it explosive, is it chained to some unlucky bloke's wrist? Are we gonna have to chop it off?
Deirdre: All right. But I am not under any obligation to let you know...
Sam: If not, the price has gotta go up. I'll get you the case, but the price has gotta go up.
Sam: If it's gonna be a amateur night, I want a hundred thousand dollars. I want it upfront. I want it in a bank account. I want another $100,000 when you get the case.
Deirdre: [after a phone conversation with someone] You'll get your money when we get the case.

Frank Baker: Okay, let's hear it. We trashed the Avedon, the Luau Lounge - what's our beef with 'Feelings'?
Susie Diamond: Nothing... except who cares? I mean, does anybody really need to hear 'Feelings' again in their lifetime? It's like parsley, okay? Take it away, nobody's going to know the difference.
Frank Baker: 'Feelings' is not parsley!
Susie Diamond: Frank, to you 'Feelings' may be goddamn filet mignon, but to me, it's parsley. It's *less* than parsley.
Frank Baker: Look, 'Feelings,' despite what you may think of it, has always been one of the bright moments of the show, and a consistent crowd-pleaser, and consequently we have an obligation to perform it. If we didn't, the audience would be disappointed.
Susie Diamond: Oh. Well, they weren't exactly crying their eyes out on New Year's Eve.
Frank Baker: You passed over 'Feelings'?
Susie Diamond: Yeah. Oh, and 'Bali Hai' went out with the bathwater, too.
Frank Baker: Ah ha. I see. The cat goes away for the night, and the mice take over the orchestra.
Susie Diamond: Hey! I ain't no mouse.

Wilhelm: You'll have to leave.
Havana: What do you mean, I have to leave?
Wilhelm: [hands her an envelope] Here's one hundred dollars. And we'll drive you to the bus stop and take you into the city.
Havana: You can't just kick me out.
Wilhelm: Nobody wants to kick you out, but we have no choice. As an outsider, you will not be permitted to remain here. It's for the best. The Hutterite is not for you.
Havana: So I have to leave now with this hundred dollars?
Wilhelm: I'm sorry.More [03/20/2008 12:03:00]

[Miles sits down to share the supper]



Prince Edward Tudor:
Would you sit in the presence of your king?



Miles Hendon:
Now, see here, my lad!



Prince Edward Tudor:
I will no longer tolerate your manner.



Miles Hendon:
[humoring him] I ask your pardon, your majesty, but after that chase we led them it would be good to sit down.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Perhaps.


[Miles sits]



Prince Edward Tudor:
No! Custom must be preserved - you will stand.


[Miles stands and then leans against the wall, getting annoyed as the prince finishes the supper]



Prince Edward Tudor:
I was very hungry. Feel better now.



Miles Hendon:
I'm gratified, your majesty.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Come to think of it, I'm under obligation to you in many ways. Your service demands rich reward.



Miles Hendon:
Oh, a mere nothing, your majesty.



Prince Edward Tudor:
You may have any reward you wish... name it.



Miles Hendon:
The, uh, privilege of sitting in your majesty's presence.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Advance, fellow, and give me your sword.



Miles Hendon:
[gives his sword to the prince] Did you find the mutton tough, sire?



Prince Edward Tudor:
Kneel.


[the prince lays the sword on Miles' shoulder]



Prince Edward Tudor:

Queen Elizabeth:
And now, my loyal subjects, a grave duty confronts us all: To prepare our nation for a war that none of us wants, least of all your queen. We have tried by all means in our power to avert this war. We have no quarrel with the people of Spain or of any other country; but when the ruthless ambition of a man threatens to engulf the world, it becomes the solemn obligation of all free men to affirm that the earth belongs not to any one man, but to all men, and that freedom is the deed and title to the soil on which we exist. Firm in this faith, we shall now make ready to meet the great armada that Philip sends against us. To this end, I pledge you ships - ships worthy of our seamen - a mighty fleet, hewn out of the forests of England; a navy foremost in the world - not only in our time, but for generations to come.



Carl Pitt:
[leading a cheer] To England, and the Queen!

General Frank Savage:
So for the sake of your roommate you violated group integrity. Every gun on a B-17 is designed to give the group maximum defensive firepower - that's what I mean by group integrity. When you pull a B-17 out of a formation you reduce the defensive power of the group by ten guns. A crippled aeroplane has to be expendable. The one thing which is never expendable is your obligation to this group. This group... this group - that has to be your loyalty; your only reason for being. Gately!



Lt. Col. Ben R. Gately:
Yes sir?



General Frank Savage:
[referring to Gately's "Leper Colony"] Here's another one for you!

Cassandra:
If your strength will permit, the Count requests your presence at the evening meal.



Aaron Fallon:
I am grateful, but the captain is lying for a very cold floor. In his condition, pneumonia could surely occur. You must have accommodations...



Cassandra:
I said your friend will recover, sir. The count has seen fit to offer lodging and refuge. I'm not in a position to question the extent of his hospitality. If you desire to put the captain in your bed, by all means do so. I was sent to announce the count has elected to share his evening fare with you - an obligation I have now discharged. If you wish to show your lack of gratitude by refusing, then I'll relay your indiscretion.



Aaron Fallon:
I most certainly want to meet the count.

Chris Taylor:
[voiceover] I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy; we fought ourselves. The enemy was in us. The war is over for me now, but it will always be there, the rest of my days. As I'm sure Elias will be, fighting with Barnes for what Rhah called "possession of my soul." There are times since, I've felt like a child, born of those two fathers. But be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again. To teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.

Capt. Ross:
Danny! Great job today. The redirect on Barnes.



Kaffee:
I have Markinson.



Capt. Ross:
Where is he?



Kaffee:
Motel room in the northeast with six federal marshalls outside his door. Take a sip of your drink.


[to waitress]



Kaffee:
I'd like a beer please. The transfer order that Markinson signed is a phony. Jessup's statement that the 6am flight was the first one off the base is a lie. We're checking the tower chief's log. In the mean time I thought we'd put the Apostle John Kendrick on the stand and see if we can't have a little fun.



Capt. Ross:
Alright. I have an obligation to tell you that if you accuse Kendrick or Jessup of a crime without proof then you're going to be subject to a court martial for professional misconduct and that is something that's going to be stapled to every job application that you ever fill out. Markinson's not going to stand up, Danny, he's a crazy man! Now, I'm not telling you this to intimidate you I'm being you're lawyer here.



Kaffee:
Thanks a lot, Jack. And I want you to know that I think the whole fucking bunch of you are certifiably insane. This code of honor of yours makes me want to beat the shit out of something.



Capt. Ross:
Don't you dare lump me in with Jessup and Kendrick just because we wear the same uniform. I'm your friend and I'm telling you, I don't think your clients belong in jail but I don't get to make that call! I represent the government of the United States without passion or prejudice and my client has a case! Now I want you to acknowledge that the Judge Advocate has made you aware of the possible consequences of accusing a Marine officer of a felony without proper evidence.



Kaffee:
I've been so advised.



Capt. Ross:
You got bullied into that courtroom, Danny, by everybody. By Dawson. By Galloway. Shit, I practically dared you. You got bullied into that courtroom by the memory of a dead lawyer.



Kaffee:

Gwen Saticoy:
[En route to the Osborne residence] ... You used to be a prosecutor. Why'd you change sides?



Merle Hammond:
Same reason everyone does. Money.



Gwen Saticoy:
Doesn't it ever feel strange, defending people you used to prosecute?



Merle Hammond:
...I learned some of my best tricks in the DA's office.



Gwen Saticoy:
Is that a term they teach in law school? "Trick"?



Merle Hammond:
I can feel that sanctimonious lecture on truth and ethics just hovering over those self-righteous lips of yours.



Gwen Saticoy:
...I'm curious: Is the whole point to trick everybody? The judge, the witnesses, the jury?



Merle Hammond:
Juries aren't bright enough to trick. After all, these are people too dumb to figure a way out of jury duty. Not that I'm complaining, mind you; as far as I'm concerned, the dumber they are, the better.



Gwen Saticoy:
Okay... Let's say I get a group of shoppers from the grocery store. I take them to a hospital, where two neurologists are trying to figure out whether to operate on a patient's frontal lobe, or his cereberal cortex. After the doctors explain the pros and cons of each operation to these shoppers, they still have no idea what should be done... Would you consider THEM dumb?



Merle Hammond:
The jury's obligation is to render a decision based on the facts presented. Nonetheless, I find your defense of them admirable; it isn't often you hear someone speak so highly of sheep.



Gwen Saticoy:
Well, as one of their shepherds, don't you feel any responsibility when they end up roaming aimlessly in some field... far off the mark?



Merle Hammond:
I don't give a damn where they wind up, or how they got there, so long as I win. In law school, you learn LAW; in the *courtroom,* you learn SURVIVAL. Your job is to *get your client off.* And believe me, if I were defending YOU on a murder charge, you wouldn't want it any other way... Whenever anyone preaches about a "fair trial," what they really mean is one that ends in their favor. *That* makes it fair.

It is our duty- nay, obligation to reclaim our place in the home, bearing the children that will carry our traditions into the future.

[Betty's Third Editorial Voice Over] Wellesley girls who are married have become quite adept at balancing their obligations.

While our mothers were called to the workforce for lady liberty it is our duty, nay, obligation to reclaim our place in the home bearing the children that will carry our traditions into the future.

Her subversive and political teachings encourage our Wellesley girls to reject the roles they were born to fill.



Katherine Watson:
Slide - Contemporary art...



Connie Baker:
No, that's just an advertisement...



Katherine Watson:
Quiet. Today you just listen. What will future scholars see when they study us, a portrait of women today? There you are ladies: the perfect likeness of a Wellesley graduate, Magna Cum Laude, doing exactly what she was trained to do. Slide - a Rhodes Scholar, I wonder if she recites Chaucer while she presses her husband's shirts. Slide - hehe, now you physics majors can calculate the mass and volume of every meatloaf you make. Slide - A girdle to set you free. What does that mean? What does that mean? What does it mean? I give up, you win. The smartest women in the country, I didn't realize that by demanding excellence I would be challenging... what did it say?
