  • Quotes

    • Nick Tanager: Yeah, but what's that gonna do for the People, man?

    • Marie Tanager: What happens to them is... incidental... in light of the larger issues. If they have to be executed, that is.

    • Stone: So, what did you finally tell those bozos at Berkeley?
      Keller: I didn't tell them anything, yet... but I'm thinking about it—seriously.
      Stone: Not because of that shooting inquiry?
      Keller: No, not that it's, just... (shrugs)
      Stone: Teacher, huh? Schoolteacher—you belong in the classroom as much as I belong in the Ballet Russe.
