    • Cyd Madison: You know, you can't be Father Flanagan to every guy in the department.

      The real Father Edward J. Flanagan founded the orphanage called Boys Town outside Omaha, Nebraska, in 1921. In 1938, Spencer Tracy played Father Flanagan in the film Boys Town and won an Academy Award for his role as the priest who took troubled boys under his wing and gave them hope and encouragement.

    • Cyd Madison: Yesterday, you thought she was a loving wife. Today, she's Lady Macbeth.

      In Shakespeare's Macbeth, Lady Macbeth does not actually commit any murders; she only goads her husband into them to ensure that he becomes the new king.
