      • Stephen: Sarajevo is for lovers of trench warfare.

      • (discussing IPhone kill switch)
        Stephen Colbert: I knew I should have gotten a Zune. They can't kill me or do anything else.

      • Stephen Colbert: Inflation is at its highest rate in 17 years. God, it's getting so a country can't spend $1 trillion on two wars without hurting its economy anymore.

      • Stephen: Tonight: The Russian invasion of Georgia continues. Turns out nested inside that truce was another war. And: Are the Olympics good for China just for the sweatshop workers who finally get to see their sneakers in action. Plus: my guest former assistant Secretary of Defense Bing West says the Iraq War is already won, I assume by Michael Phelps. If I had a quarter for every time I said I had a nickel, I'd have five times a much theoretical money. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: Look here Mr. Cookenboo. First of all, I don't know how a Dr. Seuss character got the job running a fleet of limos, Dr. Cookenboo and you can too, but you have to come up with more limos, I don't care how many funeral processions you have to break up to do it.
