  • QUOTES (2)

    • Chuck: (narrating) Life's full of lessons. Rock beats scissors. Paper covers stone. What goes up must come down. In theory anyway. But hearts and headlines tend to follow other rules, and no one knows who writes 'em.

    • Chuck: (opening monologue) One thing about hanging around with a guy with tomorrow's newspaper, you never know what's comin' next. Like I said, knowing the headlines is one thing, knowing the future is another.
