Day 5 - Your fav quote

This is obscure, but it has personal history: a somewhat friendly work acquaintance became a very close friend because of it. We were having lunch, and she started to pick the green onions out of whatever it was she ordered. I smiled and said:

"You know, some people call them green onions, but they're really scallions."

She looked at me with the strangest expression, and I said, "That's from something, but for the life of me I can't remember what." She said, "I do! It's from 'Christmas Dragnet'!"

Stan Freberg's "Christmas Dragnet" radio sketch, to be specific. My dad had played it so much when I was growing up, that the quotes became embedded in my subconscious.

Love to have ya! )
