  • Quotes

    • Ricky: Everybody listen. Everybody listen to me, please. A few of you have supported us here today, and I appreciate it. But the rest of you haven't. You've just been walking by us all day, turning your backs on us, and by doing so, you've been turning your backs on the youth of America. This may look to you just another pile of popcorn, but to me it's pieces of the American dream.
      (Crowd hums The Battle Hymn of the Republic.)
      Ricky: By buying this popcorn, you will have the rare opportunity to send some young great people from our great town of Shallow Springs to Washington D.C....
      (Crowd continues humming.)
      Ricky: ...where they can learn firsthand how democracy works. For only a dollar you and you and you and you and you, you can all make an investment in America's future. America, the cradle of democracy. Where Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson where born. Where anybody can get real old and still be elected president. So if you want America to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave, I hope you'll support us today! Long may our flag wave!
      (People Cheer.)
      Ricky: Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Now, who wants to buy some popcorn?
      (Crowd disbands.)
