  • Quotes (6)

    • Creighton: (to NPR on the phone) ...well that's because the media, in all due respect to your program—but you are one of the worst offenders—likes a simple narrative that they and their listeners can get their tiny brains around.

    • (Kermit Ruffins & The Barbeque Swingers are playing) Davis McAlary: (to Elvis Costello) Yeah... yeah, early on... Kermit, me played in the same band... I played guitar... an' a little piano... I taught him everything he knows... (Elvis, surprised by the last statement, turns to look Davis in the eye) Davis: ...'bout... Keynesian economics.

    • Reporter: For the sake of argument, let's say New Orleans was, once, a great city... Creighton: Are you saying that New Orleans is not a great city, a city that lives in the imagination of the world? Reporter: I suppose if you're a fan of the music, which has rather seen it's day, let's be honest. Or the food, a provincial cuisine which many would say is typically American: too fat; too rich. And, yes of course, New Orleans has its advocates, but what about the rest of the country? (Creighton clears throat, nods, clears throat, looks off in the distance) Creighton: Provincial, passé, hate the food, hate the music, hate the city. What the fuck are you doin' down here you fuckin' limey vulture motherfucker? (Creighton swipes the mic from the reporter; throws it in the river) (Creighton starts trying to wrest the camera from the cameraman) Reporter: Really, mister, you can't just... Creighton: C'mon goddamnit! Sofia Bernette (to herself, smiling): You go, daddy. (Creighton, still wresting the camera, moves toward the river pulling camera, cameraman and reporter with him) Creighton: Into the river! Reporter: This just is most uncivilized, man... Creighton: I'm just gonna take it for a little swim.

    • Davis: Well, you know, Chicago, New York... it's all about the future, you know? Tear down, rebuild. Tear down, rebuild. This... this is New Orleans. We just, let it go to hell. Preservation through neglect.

    • Desiree: School system is sunk. Even before the storm it was sunk. Now there just ain't enough lifeboats.
      Antoine Batiste: Shit is supposed to be women and children first, ain't it?

    • Antoine Batiste: It's about time trombones rule the world!
