  • Quotes

    • President Gerald Ford: My fellow Americans.. I've called upon the networks tonight to make two pressing issues clear to the American public. (sneezes into his tie) number one: The possible default of New York City... and number one: My stand on the Ronald Reagan announcement. (red phone rings; Ford picks up the glass of water, splashing water all over his suit) Hello! (red phone keeps ringing) Hello?! Hello, Nessen! I can't hear you! What, are you in the pool? (red phone still ringing) Uh, I guess the other phone's ringing, I don't know. Alright. (hangs up glass, allowing the red phone to continue ringing)
      Firstly, the default of New York City. Let me be clear on my feelings about this. As President, I will change my mind wherever I want. (finally answers red phone) Hello, hot line. Anwar, uh.. just a second.. I'm on the air right now, I'll get you Kissinger, alright? (picks up black phone, dials Kissinger) Hank? Can you call to talk to Sadat for a minute? Thank you. (holds the two phones to one another, then drops them on the desk)
