  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Bag Lady: The world's changing. Who would've thought the time would come when a trip to the casino was a better investment than the stock market?

    • Jim Prentice: Today, I want to talk about a new environmental crisis that's sweeping our nation. It's called green guilt, and I don't mean getting jiggy with Kermit the Frog. Although I do see the appeal. Green guilt is when you knowingly do something environmentally wrong and feel bad about it later. For example, throwing a recyclable bottle in the garbage, or using plastic instead of reusable grocery bags, or instead of properly disposing toxic waste, you use it to make a sports jacket for Don Cherry.

    • Elliotte Friedman: Doug, I'm guessing you've had your share of concussions.
      Doug Bradford: (holding up two fingers) Yeah, like six times.

    • Jim Flaherty: In our current difficult economic climate, the government may be forced to sell off assets to help balance the books after the financial mess left by the previous government.
      Carol: Aren't you the previous government?
