    • Nixon: I think the Moon is far enough for now, don't you, Mr. Delaware?
      This quote, in which Nixon allows for inter-racial but not same-sex marriage, refers to a real-life quote on the subject. According to John Ehrlichman, Nixon said "I can't go that far; that's the year 2000! Negroes [and whites], okay. But that's too far!" when the subject of same-sex marriage was raised in the aftermath of miscegenation laws being struck down in the United States.
