      Seamus O'Toole: Unless you've also got a palm tree in your living room, in which case you're in the middle of a hurricane.

    • Jimmy O'Toole: The summer of '99 marked the 25th anniversary of the Watergate scandal. Many similarities can be drawn between Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. Both scored high in public popularity polls, both were threatened with impeachment, and both got done in by Deep Throat.

      Seamus O'Toole: NASA must be very pleased.
      Jimmy O'Toole: Why's that, Seamus?
      Seamus O'Toole: Well, with a woman driving, if the spacecraft ever got lost, she wouldn't be afraid to ask for directions.

    • Jimmy O'Toole: This summer, Canada had its best-ever Pan Am Games. We won a shipload of medals! The only disappointment came with our roller hockey team. Goalie Steve Vezina tested positive for more controlled substances than Shoppers Drug Mart.
