You go back and tell them that the New York State Supreme Court rules there's no Santa Claus. It's all over the papers. The kids r...ead it and they don't hang up their stockings. Now what happens to all the toys that are supposed to be in those stockings? Nobody buys them. The toy manufacturers are going to like that. So they have to lay off a lot of their employees.

O! never say that I was false of heart, Though absence seemed my flame to qualify.... As easy might I from myself depart As from my soul, which in thy breast doth lie: That is my home of love; if I have ranged, Like him that travels, I return again, Just to the time, not with the time exchanged, So that myself bring water for my stain.

O.J. Berman: Well, answer the question now. Is she or isn't she? Paul: Is she or isn't she what?... O.J. Berman: A phony. Paul. I don't know. I don't think so. O.J. Berman: You don't think so, huh?
