  • Quotes

    • (The general is making a toast at his son's wedding rehearsal dinner)
      General Tanner: One hundred years ago, William Gladstone, after a particularly acrimonious debate in Parliament, bellowed across the floor at his arch-rival Benjamin Disraeli, "You, sir," he said, "will one day end your days on the gallows or of venereal disease." Disraeli raised himself up and replied, "That, sir, would depend on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress."
      Alex: (shocked) Grandpa...
      General Tanner: I tell this humorous story because it hasn't been altogether clear to me this past year exactly what my son is embracing.
      Jack Tanner: Dad!
