    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • George W. Bush: This is not confusion. This is disorganized thought. There is a difference. Ari [Fleischer] explained the difference to me once but I forgot it.

      • Lady: I need a drink. You got any Napoleon brandy?
        Congress Cafeteria Cook: You mean a Ted Kennedy soda?

      • Ron James: Look at George Dubya, they're running his infomercial for Armageddon 24 hours a day!

      • Congress Cafeteria Cook: Under the new Homeland Security Act, if you order salad with French dressing, the President can have you arrested and shot for treason!

      • Ron James: Maybe the land of the free isn't so free after all! Especially if you're one of those tourists returning from a sunbelt vacation with a deep tan and a week's growth of beard.

      • Ron James: Newspaper headlines screaming nothing but death, destruction and mayhem? I'm expecting to look out the window in the morning and see one of the horses of the Apocalypse taking a dump on my lawn!

      • Hana Gartner: Bernard Landry is proposing a four-day work week, which is four days more than he usually works.

      • Peter Mansbridge: The US military continues with the military offensive known as, "Operation Iraqi Freedom," which replaces the original name, "Operation Kick Ass Get Gas."

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • George W. Bush: I gave Saddam 48 hours, which is what Nick Nolte gave Eddie Murphy. That's a good movie!

        48 Hours is a 1982 crime drama movie starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. Dubya wants to rent the movie because there's nothing on TV except war coverage.

      • George W. Bush (addressing France): Be afraid. Be tres, tres afraid.

        A slight linguistic variation on the line, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" from the 1986 horror movie The Fly. It's also similar to the tagline of the 2002 movie Scooby Doo: "Be afraid. Be kind of afraid."

      • George W. Bush: Saddam, I'll get you and your little dog too.

        Another Wizard Of Oz reference, this one refers to a line by the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton). She threatened Dorothy (Judy Garland) by saying, "I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too."

      • Robert De Niro: You talkin' to me?

        De Niro delivered this line very dramatically and memorably in his 1976 film Taxi Driver.

      • Gilbert Smythe-Bite Me: Moore and Kidman and Streep, oh my!

        This line about Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep is a play on the line, "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" from the classic 1939 film The Wizard Of Oz.
